Film Fest Continues

Last night it was The Next Three Days with Russell Crow.  Okay.  I think it might have been improved by trimming the length - it seemed draggy for a suspense/prison break movie - but there were nice moments, notably when Crow's character has to decide whether to abandon his child or to risk all.  Face acting, that was, just an actor hanging onto a car's steering wheel, thinking.

If you want a really good Russell Crow film, go watch Master and Commander.  A fine book (start of Patrick O'Brian's great long naval series set during the Napoleonic Wars).  And - with added material from another book in the series - a wonderful film.
