discussing Bresson, Trumbull, others

Lately I've been commenting on posts at Alex on Film, and I appreciate the author's willingness to respond and have some back and forth:

Silent Running (1972)

A plug for Peter Schickele's music score, followed by some discussion of the moral complexity of '70s movies versus Top Gun-style blockbusters, and the recent odious trend of milking highly political events for their thrill value (Black Hawk Down, 13 Hours, Zero Dark Thirty, etc)

L'Argent (1983)

Robert Bresson's last film, about the corrosive effects of capital and one man's transition from hard-working husband and father to ax murderer.

Let the Right One In (2008)

The theory (considered elsewhere) that the film is a Moebius strip, with Oskar recruited to be Hakan's replacement.

Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World (2003)

Peter Weir in decline, or Peter Weir being Peter Weir?

Ravenous (1999)

Apparently I was one of the few who saw this in its theatrical run. A plug for Michael Nyman's score, however incongruous it may be.
