I really like the way he has gone with his own film making as opposed to those he just acted in.

A bit like the subtlety and detail De Niro put into 'The good shepherd' which was a surprise and really immpressive.

Good to see that these guys were watching, learning and thinking throughout their acting careers.

Yup, as Veg Plot said we watched it over the w/e.

Excellent film. I liked the way it dealt with the racist issues without being overtly sentimental, lovely humour in places too as the main characters developed.

The ony thing that irked me was that some of the dialogue was difficult to catch.

If you thought that dialog was hard, try "The Wire"

The International was a very good film well worth getting out.

I watched On Golden Pond last night. What a movie. I've argued
with folk over Eastwood's films. Whatever some knowalls think of his 'agenda' he makes me think & cry, see Million Dollar Baby and Mystic River.
