Match Point was the longest Woody Allen film to date and the only one since Hannah and Her Sisters to make a profit in the US. Remi Adefarasin did perhaps the best job ever in filming a Woody Allen script. Scar-Jo does an excellent job of acting like a terrible actress. It was a very natural performance.

[The following questions were culled from various movie surveys that I’ve come across. I’ve been filling it out for the last month]
- Earliest Movie Watching Memory: My first movie was Empire Strikes Back. My Dad and older brother went. I remember the Hoth sequence. There were some boys in the front row goofing that dad barked at to keep ’em quiet.
- Last DVD purchased: I’m not sure. I don’t buy too many DVDs. Possibly Gus Van Sant’s Elephant ($2)
- If you were a guest programmer for TCM what three movies would you choose to best represent your tastes: Were talking classics, like, from the 80s right? Since I watched Ferris Bueller’s Day Off on TCM a couple of months ago I’m counting anything from the 80s and before. Casablanca (because it still holds up today as a compelling drama), Indiana Jones: Raiders of the Lost Ark (not just for nostalgic reasons), and The Jerk (for some nostalgic reasons, but also because it’s hilarious).
