    Taxi Blues directed by Pavel Lungin.

    Via Netflix, a film shot entirely in black and white called Pi, about a lonely and genius New Yorker who becomes obsessed with the notion that he can find the perfect number which will serve to explain all kinds of life's mysteries. However, the only thing which it serves is in the end for our protagonist to literally lose his mind. A sad and somewhat muddled film.

    Dark Shadows -- Johny Depp starring in a typical Tim Burton film. A vampire with a difference who returns to help his family. Entertaining

    Hey Steve, I remeber watching Pi a few years ago. It really isn't something you usually see on regular TV. Interesting, that's for sure, but not for everyone, and not something you'd wanna watch after a long, though day. I think the fact it was shot in black and white added to the overall climate of the movie. I'm not sure why but when I read your post I instantly thought of another movie called Fight Club. Have you seen it?

    I've seen it, with Brad Pitt. Fight Club reminded me of Memento

    @ Mat, Yes, I've seen Fight Club with Brad Pitt and Edward Norton; and I do agree with you about the overall mood of both of these works. Both are very somber and gritty. I don't recall if Fight Club was also done in a black and white format, but like Pi it left a very dingy and sour taste in one's mouth {not to mention bloody!}. You're also spot on in that Pi is not your normal tv fare: so much the better, at least as far as I am concerned.

    CD, Thanks for citing this movie; I looked it up on my Netflix membership and it has entered my queue for future viewing! It looks very compelling indeed.

    Re watched Taxi with Robert DeNiro. A study in a man going off the rails. Some brilliant acting from him. "You lookin at me..............." Anyone who has had to deal with the mentally ill will really appreciate it.

    Teddy, I originally saw this in the movies when it first came out in 1976 {I believe that is the year} and one knew then that this is a "keeper".

    In a way, the movie almost describes the life of Peter Mamonov, who has the title roll in the movie. He plays the Saxophone and... I won't say anymore about the flick. Mamonov is a rock musician fyi...Another flick in which he acheived Russia-wide recognition is "Остров" = Island. That film has English subtitles which are really quite good at telling the story.

    The last movie I watched was "Miss Potter" with Renee Zellweger. It's not new, 2006, but I liked it very much.
