Watched Requirn For The Dead: An American Spring 2014. Emotive documentary using social media, on the scene video and police reports to tell the stories of gun violence victims in America. Quite good really.
An old Arena doc on Youtube about the great Paul Scofield. What an acting titan he was. Rarely did movies as he preferred to look after his dogs than take on film roles even though he was offered many; and just preferred stage acting, hence there is little film around of his great performances. The actor's actor; I've heard many times from the current stage greats saying that he was the man, admired even more than Olivier; and I wholeheartedly recommend looking out what you can of him on screen, including King Lear, A Man For All Seasons (belting film), The Train, Carve Her Name With Pride, and The Crucible, where he effortlessly steals the show from 'greatest actor of all time' Daniel Day-Lewis.
Here is a small clip of his performance on stage as Salieri, recognising his own mediocrity when first hearing Mozart's music, and how much it tears him apart with jealousy as he knowingly recognises genius, longingly wanting just a part of it, but has the foresight to acknowledge such music will never emanate from him. Devastating. The film is sensational as well btw for those that haven't seen it with F. Murray Abraham on Oscar-winning form playing him.
Another one for Altered Carbon here, have seen the first couple, very interesting.
It certainly doesn't spoon feed you, there's a lot to take in that doesn't necessarily make sense at the time, and the stunning visuals can distract from little details. Definite re-watch value. I'm liking the Poe character.
