The one big omission on my list is indeed something I am pretty ashamed of.

Amadeus (A)
Man on the Moon (B+)
Goya's Ghosts (C-)
Hair (F)

Whatever happened to him?

Yellow AAAutin? Amadeus is yellow? It's got sabotage and murder (ish) and well, Elizabeth Berridge. Shouldn't that garner the film a lime hue at least?  :)

I'd rather murder (ish) it and cover its remains with lime.

(Though I've tried and tried again--sure that the fault lay with me--it just never clicked. Or sang. Or giggled obnoxiously. Oh wait, it did do that last one.)

Okay, yellow it remains. I'm happy with your #2 and I can't remember if I've seen your #1 Mandy Patinkin? I think I would have remembered that. Must seek it out.


Hilarious, am I right? She must've had everyone on set in stiches.

I just saw the trailer. :o How did that get past the first dailies?

Now I really must see Amadeus, so I can vote for something other than Cuckoo's Nest which I didn't much like.
