Pure Mathematics is the class of all propositions of the form "p implies q", where p and q are propositions containing one or more variables, the same in the two propositions, and neither p nor q contains any constants except logical constants.

The Conversation (1974)

A paranoid and personally-secretive surveillance expert has a crisis of conscience when he suspects that a couple he is spying on will be murdered.

Brilliant psychological thriller with political implications, just a bit slow-paced and a bit too long.

Halliwell ***: "Absorbing but extremely difficult to follow in detail, this personal, timely (in view of Watergate), Kafkaesque suspense story centres almost entirely on director and leading actor, who have a field day."

Maltin ****: "Brilliant film...Coppola's top-notch, disturbing script makes larger statements about privacy and personal responsibility. An unbilled Robert Duvall has a cameo. One of the best films of the 70s."

Deep Blue Sea (1999)

Searching for a cure to Alzheimer's disease a group of scientists on an isolated research facility become the bait as a trio of intelligent sharks fight back.

Slick, enjoyable, tongue-in-cheek deep sea shark thriller.

This is one of those movies German TV keeps repeating time and again, but I do enjoy watching it, cause it's got Saffron Burrows in it, and I like its humour. And again: I still enjoy it:-)

Halliwell (no star): "Basically a B movie on steroids, this delivers all the expected, and more than familiar, thrills and spills, but lacks suprise."

Maltin **1/2: "Sometimes-exciting combinationof JAWS and ALIEN has some surprises, but terrible dialogue and a preposterous premise."

We are the hollow men
We are the stuffed men
Leaning together
Headpiece filled with straw. Alas!

Black Swan (2010)

A ballet dancer wins the lead in "Swan Lake" and is perfect for the role of the delicate White Swan - Princess Odette - but slowly loses her mind as she becomes more and more like Odile the Black Swan, daughter of an evil magician.

Visually beautiful with a great central performance, but with a very predictable plot.

On second view:  I still stick with my first review, the movie is clearly very much a show piece for its (brilliant) star.

Maltin **: "Vividly realized fever-dream of a movie - with an Oscar-winning performance by Portman - gives new meaning to the word "overwrought," though some people found it brilliant. Matthew Libatique's cinematography is definitely wothry of praise."
