Our Man in Havana
Reed and Greene do it again. While not as good as the other two fantastic collaborations, it's still a heck of an ironic noir. Shot on location in Havana helped to build a voluptuous atmosphere that never lets and down, and Guinness is great as always as a man who's completely in over his head. It's a bit cutesy at times, but entirely enjoyable.
Overlong, poorly paced, wasted talent, flawed screenplay. Average for-hire studio heist flick.
Histoire(s) du Cinema
I'll start this off by saying I'm not a Godard fan, in fact I find a large ratio of his highly lauded films to be pretty bad, but this is an insightful work. Perhaps not informative in the sense that it's telling me any thing about it's many, many topics, but informative in the sense that it's a window into an obsessive, enigmatic, overpraised artist. Maybe I'm liking it for the wrong reasons, but I couldn't possibly like it for what it's aspiring to be.
