Hustling


Another couple of movies down. The Graduate was fascinating. I had a vague notion of the story but really only the first half, the way the character developed and particularly Dustin Hoffman's acting were fascinating. The Hustler... was pretty much what I expected with a tacked on romance that I should have expected. I was a little disappointed.

On a somewhat related note I watched Chaplin. This is not a new film but I am glad I didn't watch it until after seeing a bunch of his movies. It really made me appreciate his achievements that much more. The acting in the film is also excellent with an all star line up.
