Dr. Duran Duran wrote:Saw the drug recovery drama Clean and Sober starring Michael Keaton today. After viewing the original Batman movies again, I've been on a bit of a Keaton kick lately and thought I'd check out one of his better dramatic roles. (By the way, if anyone has a recommendation for a Keaton film, please hit me up.)
You mention this and then I found it on TV last night in the whee hours unable to sleep. Didn't watch the whole thing. It's been a long time since I've seen it, forgot how much I liked it. It's a shame that Keaton doesn't get better roles. The only thing I have seen recently with him that might have flown under the radar is Game 6. It's a neat premise: day in the life of a Bostonian living in New York during the 1986 World Series. It's not a great movie but Keaton's performance is excellent.
I saw Lonely Hearts last night (7/10) about a female killer (Selma Hayek) in 1940s New York & Michigan (based on a true story). I think the story is very romanticized so it's not great from a historical perspective but the movie just worked for me. Gandolfini and Travolta on screen together is just electric. If you like Noir this is Noir-lite.
