Trained Teeth Violence

Just finished watching the wonderful Sidney Lumet film Murder on the Orient Express from 1974. What an ensemble cast! Albert Finney was amazing and Jacqueline Bisset was amazingly gorgeous. I can't imagine a movie like this being made today with so many high-caliber actors. Betty Bacall, Sean Connery, Ingrid Bergman, et al. A real fine piece of work.

Last night (this morning, I suppose) I caught up with the highly disturbing Bug, starring Ashley Judd in a performance like I've never seen her: "I am the super mother bug!" Terrifying and intense... scary that it's not far from what may occur in reality. Not a bad turn by William Friedkin.
