First off, sorry for being bad about replying to flist stuff. Please let me know if I skipped something cool in the past couple days ([livejournal.com profile] fivil, I really want to reply to your drama recs post). I've been having a bit of a cold/mono relapse combo. So please let me know what I missed through skimming!

I still haven't watched Hanadan, because this evening Mr. Mousie and I went to see Breach with Chris Cooper and Ryan Philippe. It's a movie based on real events that led to the capture of Robert Hansen, the most notorous spy in history of US. Cooper plays Hansen and Philippe the young agent who is supposed to keep tabs on him. Go See It!!!! I don't watch that many American movies in theaters any more (I got my dramas right here, after all) but this was totally worth time and money. It's intelligent, and tightly written and very character-driven. And it's superbly acted. The movie is all about Hansen and O'Neill and it's awesome to see the two actors interact and twist around each other. I have to say that out of the ex-couple, Reese might be the biggest star, but I find RP's movies generally more appealing as movies.

And tomorrow we are going to see Becket (with Peter O'Toole and Richard Burton) which being played on the big screen. Yes! Later in the week, I am going to see Amazing Grace with *slurp* Ioan Gruffudd (about 1807 anti-slavery British bill). Yay for movies I actually want to see!

And because I believe in bringing pictures, I close with the pictures of The Wind the Shakes the Barley, an Irish movie that will be opening in the States in March. A Ken Loach film, it stars Cillian Murphy and Padraic Delaney and is set in 1920 Ireland.



The plot: Damien (Cillian Murphy) and Teddy (Padraic Delaney) are brothers. But while the latter is already the leader of a guerrilla squad fighting for the independence of his motherland, Damien, a medical student at University College, would rather finish his training at the London hospital where he has found a place. However, shortly before his departure, he happens to witness atrocities committed by the ferocious Black and Tans and finally decides to join the resistance group led by Teddy. The two brothers fight side by side until a truce is signed. Bur peace is short-lived and when England imposes a treaty regarded unfair by a part of the population war resumes, this time pitting Irishmen against Irishmen, brothers against brothers, Teddy against Damien...
