  • Prairie Home Companion

    I finally got to see it. I am a huge fan of the radio show, and thought it was really good especially the ending.

    Anyone else?

    I'm (a) a Minnesotan and a long-time listener, and (b) a big admirer of Altman's work so, yup, I rushed right out and saw it. And liked it.

    The fact that Lindsay Lohan bears a resemblance to my younger daughter that in certain lights and at certain angles is so striking as to be spooky - even down to gestures & body language - added to the experience. I almost fell out of my seat the first time she appeared on screen.

    I thought it was a sweet, funny, good-natured movie. My other daughter, who isn't a PHC listener, saw it with me and was less enthralled and of course didn't get a lot of it but enjoyed it nonetheless except for Virginia Madsen who for some reason just annoyed the bejeebers out of her.

      I've been a Prairie Home Companion fan for many years, listening to the show and reading Keillor's books, so I looked forward to seeing the movie and wasn't disappointed. I guess it's the mark of a good movie, but I kept dreading for it to be over. I wanted to stay right there in that off beat world with Garrison, Lily, Merrel and Kevin.

        Yet another, "has anyone seen this"? My brother and his wife really want to rent it but can't seem to find a copy (she is a big Bjork fan). I was going to buy it for them as a gift but wondered if it's worth it?....I heard good things but that is is a little strange as far as genre. (part...

        "Remembering" vs. "Rewatching"
        by Doug Nelson
        I recently got into a conversation and mentioned that a movie they mentioned remembered better than it rewatched. The person I was speaking with had no idea what I was talking about, but I'd assumed everyone thought about movies in that way. Some movies simply seem better in the memory, even very recent...

        I have three grandchildren, so I end up seeing a lot of children's movies. We eagerly awaited the release of Lilo & Stitch thinking it was a cuddly lost dog kind of movie.

        The only cuddly parts are what is shown in all the tv ads that we've been inundated with.

        There's another thread here about books that have changed our lives. Well, here's a movie that changed mine.

        Mindwalk is 12 years old, and I hadn't watched it for at least 6 years, but it was on cable this morning so I rewatched it, and I was astounded at how many of the thoughts expressed...
