      Check out The Friends of Eddie Coyle that was filmed in Boston in 1973. It's even got a scene in the old Gahden.
      A bad cause requires many words.

          It is not just reddit...but yeah. I always got the feeling that they are addicted to the dopamine shot they get when they mob up on someone who never saw it coming. Like the ones who went after Lin-Manuel Miranda. (who should have never apologized)

          The only way to stop this crap is to just not engage with it. They have the attention span of gnats.

            That's probably true. They do it so often everybody except them is tried of it and ignores it. If you wait one news cycle they are on to the next crusade. But if you react then it's the Streisand Effect.

            It is mildly surprising that this kind of behavior is common to both the Right and the Left. Typically our higher level of intelligence and education, not to speak of our commitment to facts and fairness, instead of force and money, mean our people behave much better. But we have idiots too.

            • The Innocents
              The Nightcomers

              Both films are based off The Turn of the Screw with the former mostly using the novella in whole, while the latter is an adapted prequel based off the same characters.

              The Innocents was tremendous. It creeps you out sans gore & violence - a total mind **** throughout. Possibly in my Top 5 for horror movies all time. The Nightcomers? Ugh. Don't bother.

              For TV: Home Before Dark. Not a big fan of Jim Sturgess in this series and the Season 1 finale was clunky, but into S2 now and I've really enjoyed it. Kepler be damned, Brooklynn Prince who plays the main protagonist that is now all of 11 is one hell of an actor. She's got tremendous range, delivery and her ability to convey feelings with facial expressions alone makes her a tour de force.

                The Innocents is amazing, and Kerr is perfect in that movie.

                The worst version I have seen is The Others. I do not understand how Nicole Kidman ever got an acting job. She must have been amazing on the casting couch.

                I need to find the cite for this fascinating feminist essay I read on Turn of the Screw. It's brilliant and it goes very deeply into the history of the way the story has been interpreted. It's basically the history of women's mental health treatment in the last century.

                The story is a very good read. It's what they mean when they say William James does psychology like a novelist and Henry James writes novels like a psychologist.

                  I couldn't believe I wasn't aware of The Innocents until I researched The Haunting of Bly Manor from Netflix. This is a film I will have no problem watching every few years.

                    Bookend it with The Haunting (1963), the scariest ghost story I have ever seen.

                                Jimmy Stewart - Vertigo
                                I can't see this being called an underrated role. It is Stewart's signature character (granted, he's usually the exact same guy) and well celebrated.

                                I would call Hitchcock's casting of Stewart for that role the brilliant move. It's as if Stewart practices in every other movie for that one perfect role. All the rest of his portrayals of this character, even the great ones (Wonderful Life, Liberty Valance, Rear Window) are cloying but in Vertigo his off-centered aloofness is ideal.

                                Every time I see Vertigo I am more impressed with Hitchcock. It's a masterpiece. It's the greatest art house film made by an American studio, and it is deeply subversive in that 99% of the people who see it are consciously unaware of what it is doing and yet it reaches them unconsciously.
