Continuing with another Jerzy Skolimowski film The Shout (1978) was on tap. More science fiction but also intense as Alan Bates invades the home of John Hurt and holds him & his wife captive after demonstrating his killing scream. Worth seeking out.
Finally caught up with Johnny Depp's turn as John Dillinger in Michael Mann's Public Enemies (2009), a film I tried to see last year but never could work it out. Now having seeing it can't say I missed it. It's a lot of just okay. Bale was weak but was great to see Stephen Lang and even better to see Don "The Predator" Frye! Still not a must-see.
Another overdue 2009 flick I was happy to get was Robert Siegel's Big Fan featuring the awesome Patton Oswalt. It's everything it's billed to be... definitely a dark comedy and only humorous in the painful sense as you see the darker side of fanaticism. Was on Netflix Instant Watch. Check it out if you get the chance.
