Dr. Yang (Keye Luke): “Mrs Tait believes in ghosts?”

Alice (Mia Farrow): “I don’t know. I guess. What do I know?”

D. Yang: “Don’t all Catholics?”

Alice obtuvo una nominación al Oscar por Best Writing, Screenplay Written Directly for the Screen.

Se estrenó en USA el 25 de diciembre de 1990. El gran Keye Luke (Dr. Yang) murió pocas semanas después, el 12 de enero de 1991. Alice fue su última película.

Lo mejor: Dr. Yang, Joe Mantegna, la música, Blythe Danner y la antipática Nina (Robin Bartlett).

Lo peor: que Mia Farrow, encarnando brillantemente a Alice, nos haga desgraciadamente recordar toda la mierda que hubo entre ella y Woody Allen.

Dr. Yang (Keye Luke): “Mrs Tait believes in ghosts?”

Alice (Mia Farrow): “I don’t know. I guess. What do I know?”

D. Yang: “Don’t all Catholics?”

Alice got an Oscar nomination for Best Writing, Screenplay Written Directly for the Screen.

The movie was released in the US on December 25, 1990. The great Keye Luke (Dr. Yang) died some weeks later, on January 12, 1991. Alice was his last movie.

The best: Dr. Yang, Joe Mantegna, the music, Blythe Danner, and the nasty Nina (Robin Bartlett).

The worst: that the presence of Mia Farrow in the role of Alice (brilliant performance, by the way), sadly reminds me of all the crap that happened between her and Woody Allen.

“Friendship and money: oil and water” (Michael Corleone / Al Pacino)

The Godfather. Part III obtuvo 7 nominaciones al Oscar (incluidos Best Picture, Best Actor in a Supporting Role: Andy Garcia, Best Director: Coppola, y Best Cinematography: Gordon Willis). No ganó ningún Oscar.

Robert Duvall (Tom Hagen) no quiso participar en la película porque consideró “inaceptable” que a Al Pacino le pagaran 5 veces más que a él.

The Godfather. Part III no es tan genial como The Godfather y The Godfather. Part II, pero es una película buenísima. Otra joya de Coppola y un brillante, inesperado y doloroso final.

Lo mejor: Joe Mantegna y la confesión de Michael.

Lo peor: el peinado de Al Pacino.

“Friendship and money: oil and water” (Michael Corleone / Al Pacino)

The Godfather. Part III got Oscar nominations (including Best Picture, Best Actor in a Supporting Role: Andy Garcia, Best Director: Coppola, and Best Cinematography: Gordon Willis). It didn’t win any Oscar.

Robert Duvall (Tom Hagen) didn’t want to be in the movie because he considered  it “unacceptable” that Al Pacino would earn 5 times more than him.

The Godfather. Part III is not so amazing as The Godfather and The Godfather. Part II, but nevertheless it is a really good movie. Another Coppola gem, and a brilliant, unexpected and painful end.

The best: Joe Mantegna and Michael’s confession.

The worst: Al Pacino’s hairdo.
