  • The Ewan McGregor (and Eva Green) film Jackson-Gray refers to is PERFECT SENSE, a 2011 BBC Films/Scandinavian co-production I can also recommend…a reasonably intelligent coping-with-an-oddly-cinematic-epidemic film that makes its points rather well and charmingly, even if for some reason it wants us to believe Green is a Scot (Connie Nielsen is her sister, and manages to come off convincingly-enough Scottish for this Yank; Green, probably wisely, doesn’t really try)…and the filmmakers don’t seem to know how to convincingly portray her as an epidemiologist as well as they do McGregor as a chef.  Nonetheless, way the hell better in its compass than such films as CHILDREN OF MEN or GATTACA in theirs. (Thought I’d mention while I remembered to…still trying to recall the first film I made a big point of being on line for…did manage to see DUNE on opening night at a huge Northern Virginia theater, but that was more convenient than what you’re asking…it was a midnight show, and I’d just gotten off my swing-shift job down the street, and I didn’t have to make any great effort. The closest I recall coming to camping out in a line, and this not too close, would be the effort I made to catch the original CAT PEOPLE, and the then-rare THE GHOST SHIP, a few years earlier at the Honolulu Academy of the Arts, and I’ll always be grateful to have seen CP for the first time on a theater screen with full-speaker sound, so as to fully appreciate the effects employed (THE GHOST SHIP turned out to be the worst of Lewton Unit horror films, laughably goofy, but still amusing enough, if not even beginning to be a patch on CAT PEOPLE, by a margin the best of the mostly excellent bunch).
