Blethyn's every bit the treasure that Helen Mirren is. She was amazing in "Secrets and Lies" and "Little Voice". And you can get one of her earliest flicks, "Grown Ups" by Mike Leigh, at Scarecrow.
So glad you mentioned 'Secrets and Lies', Fnarf. Have you seen Leigh's 'Naked'? and 'Vera Drake'- $the last GOOD MOVIE I saw$ - but don't agree with me, I'm going through an 'angry white man' phase, or at least that's how Joan Rivers put it in the latest Esquire. I HATE myself for reading that crap!!!
What, no Film Noir?
A couple of friends were telling me the ones showing tonight and tomorrow night at SIFF Cinema in Seattle Center were really good.
"Naked" was OK; the David Thewlis character was a bit overplayed. But I've seen almost everything Mike Leigh has done. "Life is Sweet" is just about my favorite movie of all time. "Nuts in May" is pretty marvelous, too.
