Indeed Movies_#69 Love and Death

Welcome to episode #34  .   In at #69 – Love and Death (Woody Allen, 1975)

Summary:  In Russia, Boris Grushenko is in love with his pseudo-intellectual cousin Sonja, who loves him since he too is a pseudo-intellectual, but she is not in love with him. Instead she is in love with his brother Ivan. But as Ivan doesn’t seem to return her affections, she is determined to marry someone – anyone – except Boris. If that person isn’t the perfect husband, then she has to find a suitable lover in addition. Boris’ pursuit of Sonja has to take a back seat in his life when he, a pacifist and coward, is forced to join the Russian Army to battle Napoleon’s forces which have just invaded Austria. Despite Sonja not being in the picture while he’s away at war, Boris’ thoughts do not stray totally from women. Although they take these two divergent paths in their lives, those paths cross once again as they, together, both try to find the perfect spouse and lover, and try to assassinate Napoleon.

Join Keefe and Chris and the large amount of silence when we look at the typical Woody Allen film.  If you brave the field of war and then watched this film….I am sure war is a better route to go.

Indeed_Movies_#71_The Royal Tenenbaums

Welcome to episode #32- #71 The Royal Tenenbaums (2001) directed by Wes Anderson

Summary:

Royal Tenenbaum and his wife Etheline had three children–Chas, Richie, and Margot–they were a family of geniuses and then they separated. Chas started buying real estate in his early teens and seemed to have had a preternatural understanding of international finance. Margot was a playwright and received a Braverman grant of fifty thousand dollars in the ninth grade. Richie was a junior champion tennis player and won the U.S. Nationals three years in a row. Virtually all memory of the brilliance of the young Tenenbaums was subsequently erased by two decades of betrayal, failure and disaster. Most of this was generally considered to be their father’s fault. The tale follows the family’s sudden and unexpected reunion one recent winter.

Keefe, Paxton and Chris take a long…I mean very long journey into a film about a punchline.   That’s it…all about a joke.  You know what… forget it.  I am going home….

Indeed_Movies_#74_Trading_Places

Welcome to episode #29- #74 Trading Places (1983) directed by John Landis

Summary:

The “nature-nurture” theory that motivated so many Three Stooges comedies is the basis of John Landis’s hit comedy. The fabulously wealthy but morally bankrupt Randolph and Mortimer Duke brothers (played by Ralph Bellamy and Don Ameche) make a one-dollar bet over heredity vs. environment. Curious as to what might happen if different lifestyles were reversed, they arrange for impoverished street hustler Billy Ray Valentine (Eddie Murphy) to be placed in the lap of luxury and trained for a cushy career in commodities brokerage. Simultaneously, they set about to reduce aristocratic yuppie Louis Winthorpe III (Dan Aykroyd) to poverty and disgrace, hiring a prostitute (Jamie Lee Curtis) to hasten his downfall. When Billy Ray hears this and learns that the brothers intend to dump him back on the streets once their experiment is complete, he seeks out Winthorpe, and together the pauper-turned-prince and prince-turned-pauper plot an uproarious revenge. With the good-hearted prostitute and Winthorpe’s now former butler (Denholm Elliott) as their accomplices, they set about to hit the brothers where it really hurts: in the pocketbook

Keefe, Chris and Paxton kick back in the 80’s to check out fast cars, easy money and Eddie Murphy?  Ah, only to be an experiment of some wall street rich dudes….
