Can-Not figure why Sidney Lumet's "Q&A" is not more well know. As many representations of the crooked cop have been done on film, Nick Nolte's portrayal to me stands out. Not only him, but Armand Assante is perfect.

I agree! Q&A was a really good one.

Just watched House of Sand and Fog.. Jennifer Connelly AND Ben Kingsley were both great in that.

Oh, that movie is downright creepy! He's actually a wounded Union soldier who is found by a girl (Pamelyn Ferdin ... I always hated her whiny voice!) from a rundown boarding school somewhere in the South. The headmistress and the older girls all fight over him, and yeah, the headmistress gets her revenge. Great example of Southern Gothic storytelling. It's still on TV reasonably often; I've seen it on the Encore channels.

There are so many old films I'd love to see again, but very few films from the 40s
are shown here in England any more. There was a time old movies were on the telly
all the time, but not any more. One old film I'd love to see again is Nightmare Alley
made in 1947 starring Tyrone Power and Joan Blondell. When Power got back from
the war, he wanted to make different types of films than he'd done previously. He
made a good version of The Razors Edge, then Nightmare Alley. He plays a fairground
barker who starts a mind reading act with Blondell. Things go wrong, and he ends up
as an alcoholic circus geek living in a wooden box!! No happy ending in this opus!!

Great movie but no wish to see it again. It was one of those movies I actually was sobbing by the end. Hitching sobs.

i don't know which scene was the worst? when the son gets shot or when Ben Kingsley kills his wife and then himself.

Just a downer of a movie

Keanu Reeves in The Watcher.

He was actually a good actor in that and he definitely NOT playing his typical role. He was a serial killer in that and portrayed it great

I know Frank Sinatra was in a lot of films before The Manchurian Candidate but that was the only one I either saw or really noticed him in. That was a great movie and it was like "hey look at Frank, he can really act" (Ruined Angela Langsbury's career for a long time)

Man I had another one and lost. I'll remember it later?

Little known roles for favorite actresses/actors.

I saw this too and thought they were both wonderful in respective but bizarre roles. B Kingsley is, to me, an astonishing actor-anyone see him in Beast?? OMG
