Duel is worth seeking out. An egregiously overlooked Spieberg.

Oh I know. It's a good movie from what I remember. And it's not an issue of seeking them out. They are both downloaded and ready to go.

Uri and I rarely get to see movies at the cinema, but we are going out tonight - the problem is there are so many movies we want to see!

So, given the fact that I will probably get to see only one of these now (possibly one more - but it's unlikely), and I'll have to wait for dvd for the others, which should I make my priority, given the awards season, Filmspot season, etc.?


Black Swan
The King's Speech
True Grit

Mary and Max is instantwatchable and if you haven't seen it already, you haven't seen the best film of the year.
Ive lied to men who wear belts. Ive lied to men who wear suspenders. But Id never be so stupid as to lie to a man who wears both a belt and suspenders.

Um. Why are you watching movies you already watched? Why not try White Material or something?

Black Swan and/or True Grit. Flip a coin, I guess.
