|Arsenic & Old Lace (1944)
Lonely Men’s club -- poisoned by a couple of Aunt’s with their elderberry line. Love the yellow fever graves in the cellar and their relative who thinks he’s Teddy Roosevelt and the gangster brother who comes home.
Director: Frank Capra
w/ Cary Grant
Director = Fritz Lang
The gap between those who run the companies and those who work in industry underground as slaves. Early Sci-Fi type movie. One of the ruling class goes underground even though he’s not allowed and joins the two groups together. Just a great early movie way ahead of its time.
True Grit (1969)
About an older Marshal, a young Texas Ranger, and a young girl looking for the man who killed her father to avenge her father’s death but about much more and the bond that forms between these people. Loved the snake scene.
Jacob’s Ladder (1990)
About flashbacks from govt. LSD experiments in Vietnam during the war that were supposed to make the men better soldiers but also about time. One moment in time changing everything -- what happens and how hellish life is post war if he lives and what happens if he dies and which decision he makes though it leaves you wondering…
Director: Adrian Lyne
