I've been in an obscure classic dramas kick lately:

The Children's Hour(1961)

Karen(played by Audrey Hepburn) and Martha(played by Shirley MacLaine) are two teachers in charge of an all girl's boarding school. One day their lives are thrown into chaos when a rumor that they are lesbian lovers gets out. Shirley MacLaine and Audrey Hepburn give A+ performances in this hard hitting drama. They have really great chemistry with each other. MacLaine is especially great. She is on another level here. Fay Bainter, Karen Balkin, James Garner and the rest of the supporting cast do a good job in their roles as well. And William Wyler is an all time great director who does a subtle, but excellent job as well.

If you are in the mood for a classic drama, I could not recommend this movie highly enough. It's a bit of a hidden gem. Despite the all star cast in front and behind the camera, this movie isn't really talked about all that much. Probably for the same reason that it wasn't a big awards winner in it's day, the lesbian theme. But trust me, this is probably the best movie of 1961. The only two movies that might be in it's class are The Hustler and Splendor in the Grass, and even then I think The Children's Hour is better.

************

Desperate Characters(1971)

A depressing snapshot of 70's New York City through the lens of a depressed and lonely middle aged, middle class couple having a mid life crisis. This film is not for everyone. It's very slow and it meanders without a real external plot or conflict that can be resolves. Some of the dialogue is clunky at times as well. If you are in the mood for a character driven movie, and don't mind the tone or pace then you may enjoy it. The acting is excellent in it's own understated and "real" way. That's probably this movie's biggest strength.

************

The Slender Thread(1965)

A very good drama. Sidney Poitier is never disappointing as an actor, but this is really Anne Bancroft's show. She delivers a captivating, nuance, complex and powerful performance. You really won't be able to take your eyes off the screen because of her. This also happens to be Sydney Pollack's directorial debut, and he does a good job. This feels like the movie of a director that would one day grow to become one of the best in Hollywood. The city of Seattle, just a couple of years removed from the 1962 World's Fair, provides an interesting backdrop for the story and some beautiful images.

A few films for the week:

The Blue Max (1966)

Pretty good movie about German WWI flying aces. Very realistic dogfight scenes using real planes and stunt pilots. Story involves a cold hearted pilot up from the ranks, doing everything he can to win the highest medal (the Blue Max), much to the chagrin of the other flying officers who come from the German Aristocracy. A theme being the death of chivalry in the face of all out total war. A must see war film, a favorite of my father.

Three Ring Circus (1954)

12th film by the team of Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis, whom we're told were getting sick of working with each other by this time. Another circus film sorta like The Greatest Show on Earth from a few years earlier. The boys are being discharged from the army and Jerry has arranged to be a lion tamer's apprentice, in order to get a foot in to follow his real passion of becoming a circus clown. Martin is along for the ride, and to chase the girl (Zsa Zsa Gabor). Funny segment with Sig Ruman as the lion tamer. Average film.

Possessed (1947)

TCM had a full day of old Joan Crawford movies on, many from the 1930s. Caught the end of one and the beginning of another, this is the only one I watched full through. She plays a mentally disturbed character found walking around town in a catatonic state. The psychiatrist at the hospital treats her and gets her to tell a story of how she got that way. A love - hate triangle involving a man who doesn't reciprocate her love turns her into a psychopath. Not a great film, but the story kept my interest the whole time. Crawford was able to play psychos pretty well.

Rogue One (2016)

OK film, mostly well made but I have a few story issues. Better off discussing this in the Star Wars thread.

Evan, have you gotten a chance to see Split?
Update: Yes I have. Thought it was pretty good, nice to see Shyamalan making acceptable movies again. Let's see where that ultimately takes him.

I didn't really like Kong Skull Island, it felt very artificial to me, characters felt like placeholders and most of the film felt inauthentic because of the number of times the actors had to react to the VFX around them. All of the elements just don't gel and a lot of it lies squarely with the director and the screenwriter. Needed a few more months of post is my guess.

Mask of the Phantasm is one of the all-time great animated films not made by Pixar or Studio Ghibli. Incredibly thoughtful grounded and spiritual. Shirley Walker's score is an overlooked beauty, elegiac and thematic in the best possible ways. I love it, it's just about up there with the Burton and Nolan films for me. Would also recommend Batman Beyond which is heavily influenced by the likes of Blade Runner and Akira at least in the beginning anyway.

Split, like I said was promising. It seems like Shyamalan has found his footing again. You could see him trying to find his voice again in a lot of ways even if the movie flounders at certain points. Twists didn't feel shocking to me they felt like an interesting turn of events. Looking forward to what comes of this new shared universe.

I really liked Get Out. Will have to see it again though. It felt like a Shyamalan movie but if it had more depth in a lot of ways. It manages to be creepy and exciting in unique ways as events unfold. You're like a frog in slow boiling water with the protagonist the whole way through. A really good movie.

Batman: Under the Red Hood is another one I'd recommend for you Evan. Great voice work, an emotional story, and well done animated action. I agree with you though, Mask of the Phantasm is one of the best superhero movies period. I would put it up there in terms of quality with any MCU film, the Nolan Dark Knight Trilogy, and even Logan. It's part of the reason why Kevin Conroy and Mark Hammill will always get me excited when they are Batman and Joker.

Batman Beyond was such a fun show, hate that it got cancelled before it's time, but it was great for what it was. Return of the Joker is also another gem of a DC Animated Movie.

Still Alice (2014)

A 50 year old linguistics professor develops early onset Alzheimer's and the movie follows her deterioration. So scary to watch because it's based on reality and could happen to anyone. Incredible performance by Julianne Moore.

This movie was absolutely chilling.
