Bewitched

May 25, 2011

Nicole Kidman, Shirley MacLaine and Michael Caine bewitchingly enchanting in ‘Bewitched‘ (2005). Once a witch, always a witch. Moving faster and better with a broomstick than with a car. Doing and undoing magic. A movie in which a witch has a choice – quit… give up… or get mad. And once a witch gets mad, it all gets bewitchingly charming.

Strangers on a Train

May 25, 2011

When the destinies of ‘Strangers on a Train‘ (1951) cross paths and the idea of swapping murders pops up, it gets unexpected and unpredictable just like in a Alfred Hitchcock’s movie. Crime drama with funny elements. And the idea that anyone could be a murderer. Strange and brilliant dialogues. Superb acting.
