who loves movies more than anyone.
I've seen most of his movies. I love him. I went on an actual quest about 4 years ago to BUY every JB movie that was on video that I could get my hands on. Then someone broke into my house and stole them (along with all of my camera gear). But you're absolutely right - he is excellent and unfortunately very forgotten...

I take it you've seen American Heart... I really think he does an incredible job in that one!

Here's the synopsis I found:

A boy [Edward Furlong] longing for a relationship with his newly-released ex-convict dad [Jeff Bridges], tracks him down and begs to stay with him. Grudgingly, the father agrees and they set up house in a residential hotel. Jobs are hard to come by for ex-cons "who can't do nothin'," but the father finally gets work washing windows, and instructs his son to go find a school to attend.
As the father and son struggle to become a family, the father tries to resist the temptation to return to the streets and slip back into his old ways. They plan to fulfill the father's dreams of resettling in Alaska, but a feud between the two has dire consequences, leading to a tragic ending.

It was filmed in Seattle. I've never read a bad review on it, and most were just glowing. If you haven't seen it, you really should. It's one of the first ones I spent actual $$ to own.

Thanks Jac, still don't recall. Problem is I see a lot of films, though not as many as Roger Ebert.
I'll see if I can find it. Did you see the one where he was in the plane crash?

the two main characters fit me and my lady well I think... and I long ago made this animation of the four of us.. boggie and Kate... pam and I
Kate and Bogie are one of my all time favorites, and a great pair to "fit" with! Nice animation.

I like watching many movies..... but some I reach for when I like to enjoy some familar moments
I feel that way about a number of movies - laugh myself out of a sad/bad mood -- "9 to 5" with Lilly, Dolly, & Jane; have a good cry (AND revive my patriotic fervor) watching the WWII tour shows in Jane Froman's story "With a Song in My Heart", [especially singing 'Back Home Again in Indiana']; the great bits from Mae West/W.C. Fields movies, wrenching free from conformity with "Holiday" (Cary Grant/Katharine Hepburn); the thrill watching the cafe crowd fervently singing "La Marseillaise" over the sounds of the Gestapo voices... and the eerie shock of watching the sweet blond boys singing the sweet tune and horrifying threat of "Tomorrow Belongs to Me" in "Cabaret". Of course, "Cabaret" includes many more special moments.

Just finished watching Grand Canyon, with Kevin Kline. Great film. The dynamic of good and bad, violence and peace. Someone was a genius, writer or director or both.

Grand Canyon is marvelous. Writer/director are the same guy, Lawrence Kasdan. He also did Body Heat, Big Chill, Accidental Tourist, and Silverado. Plus he wrote two Star Wars movies

I'll try to remember that> It sound like you might be deeper into films than I. I only know a few directors.
The first was Hitchcock, from the TV shows, 2nd was in the '70s Huston, then Spielberg, and on ..........

Loved Body Heat, saw it recently, Big Chill..fantastic.
Tourist, good, Silverado loved Kevin Kline, and Linda Hunt.
