|The Piano Teacher
I've been using netflcks (replace the cks with x. I hate their pop-under ads on other sites so I won't provide a link) It's great for those of us without easy access to a decent video store. I watched the Piano Teacher again the other night, this time on dvd instead of the theater. I don't think I've seen a more complex character so fully realized on screen. I need to see it again, the pace seemed too fast this time around, particluarly the second half, but I'm willing to blame that on a trip to the refirgerator. I agree with David Denby that some of it is very funny. The reviews in the above links are full of spoilers so be warned.
have you tried kazaa for downloading movies? this was recommended to me by a friend who was injured and can't get out to the video store.
i downloaded a bunch of cowboy bepop and neon genesis evangelion anime with mixed results as to quality. i had some problems with spiderman but the quality of the last star wars was good, both of which i downloaded before they were available for rental. good for blockbusters because there are probably a number of people that you can get it from simultaneously. obviously you need a high speed connection for it to be worthwhile.
Cowboy Bebop movie set for Apr 4 NY/LA release!
