    *1. Safe - A (one of my favorite films of the 90's, one of Julianne Moore's best performances)
    2. Far From Heaven - B+ (I was really high on this film when I first saw it but have cooled to it a bit since. I don't think Haynes updating made the film more resonant and there are already two superior versions)
    3. I'm Not There - C
    4. The Velvet Goldmine - C (Didn't get much out of this sex, drugs and Glam & Roll story except for another visit from Ewan McGregor's "little bishop in a turtleneck")

    Out of [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Far from Heaven (2002) [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] - Damn fine film. I believe it is superior to the original in many ways. haven't seen Ali yet for comparison.
    Velvet Goldmine (1998) - I will see this one soon.
    Safe (1995) [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] - Love the ambiguity and how it doesn't hammer the audience over the head with its real meaning. Own the DVD
    Dottie Gets Spanked (1993) (TV)
    Poison (1991) - Have the DVD but haven't watched it yet for some reason.
    Superstar: The Karen Carpenter Story (1987) - Would love to check this one out. Not on DVD as far as I know. Maybe buried in some collection of shorts somewhere. Anyone know?
    Assassins: A Film Concerning Rimbaud (1985) - Who actually knows the proper pronunciation of the artist's name? [​IMG]

    John, my film professor told us a website where you can buy a compilation with Superstar on it. It's www.illegalart.org, I think, not sure about the .org though, just fool around and you should find it.
