The Big Blue and Bringing Up Baby

The Big Blue, directed by Luc Besson, was this month's selection @ Alex's. Staring Jean Reno and Jean-Marc Barr as life long friends who grow up to be competitive free divers. Rosanne Arquette's character is as limp and tastelss as boiled white spaghetti. The combination of under water scenes and camera work gave it a very hypnotic look. The Fiat 500, who seems to have a lot of personality for a car, is seen in quite a bit of the first half of the movie and I count it as an uncredited actor. Even the car gives a better performance than Arquette.

 I watched Bringing Up Baby staring Cary Grant and Katherine Hepburn @ home. I love the way the dialogue just whizzes by. Everyone is  so dapper and the leopard is so beautiful...
