    THE CRITERION COLLECTION #257

    I must admit that having only a basic understanding of Watergate meant that much of this was lost on me. However, Philip Baker Hall's performance is so impressive that he kept me engaged.

    This film is clunky, poorly written, and acted. Yet it's still the strongest of the prequels - which isn't saying much.

    Well, that was a lot of fun. If they keep making these, THIS will be the franchise that Daniel Craig is remembered for.  Well, at least by me.

    The Criterion Collection #253

    Going into this, I had seen two other Cassavetes films that I really disliked (Shadows and Faces). Both of those films were hard to watch, and I did not care about the characters and in Faces I couldn't stand them. In A Woman Under The Influence, Cassavetes made me care about his characters, which made me want to stay engaged with it. The film is a brutal watch yet very effective. In the two other films the performances came across as some sort of acting excercise gone wrong, while in this they were amazingly real.
