"Rush" Film Review!

Trailer: "Rush" Featurette - Universal Pictures

SPOILERS: This featurette, and the trailers, have quite a few spoilers! I recommend seeing the film without seeing the plot details ahead of time.

Excellent race film! But, much more than that, a great portrait of two very determined men, driven by their goals, and by their rivalry. Ron Howard directs, and has clearly excelled with docudramas, and does so again here, as he did with "Apollo 13." The acting, directing, script (by the excellent Peter Morgan), cinematography and film score are all right on the money! This isn't just for race fans (although I am one!). It is for anyone who is captivated by excellent drama and action. Ron Howard has pulled off a great film, and should be commended!

I recommend that you see the film in a good auditorium! The widescreen (Cinemascope) images are great! And, seeing the action on a nice screen will properly immerse you in the experience.

"Rush" will be released on September 27.

William Friedkin Gets Awarded in Venice

Story: William Friedkin Interview - The Guardian

William Friedkin has had a busy and storied career! At this year's Venice Film Festival, he has been awarded wtih a career achievement award. And, his own most-favorite film, 1977's atmospheric "Sorcerer" has been restored and will be shown.

I personally love the film, it is very exciting in its complete dedication to showing the plight of four lost men as they make a desperate attempt to deliver nitroglycerin through an unforgiving jungle climate.

The film is to be released relatively soon on Blu-ray, which should be very sweet! Up till now, it's only been available in pan-and-scan 4:3 ration on VHS and DVD. I highly recommend giving the film a chance!
