Re: Recently watched movies.

I was an adult and I don't remember the exact moment I heard, but I remember it happening.  It was so shocking at the time, such a young guy and so talented.  Both those films are classics.

I had a little River Phoenix film night on Sunday.
First "Stand by me" and then "My own private Idaho" I haven't watched them for at least 10 years or so.
Both so wonderful and after it I thought for a very long time how would it be if River Phoenix didn't die in 1993.
He was so pure and raw in his films.

Does anyone of you remember when he died, I mean in the sense of "where were you when XY died"

I was 13 and I'm not sure how much I was aware of him at that time.

I do not remember where I was but it was a shock to hear of his death. I liked "My Own Private Idaho" very much, especially since I was working on Shakespeare adaptations at the time. I still think this was a fascinating view on Henry IV.

Re: Recently watched movies.

I finally got to see Dunkirk on Saturday, in IMAX. The visuals were great, but I have to agree that the soundtrack was very important to the film and I thought it was very well-done (although when the credits started and Hans Zimmer's name came up, do we really expect anything other than a good soundtrack from him?), really capturing the desperation of the soldiers with the relentless beats and repeating patterns. That was something I really liked. We're shown that people get hurt, they die, they're in constant danger and there is fighting going on, but it doesn't make a spectacle of suffering, and that was one of the things that I thought made it a good war movie.
Clueing for looks.
