Movie Month

I am an avid Alan Rickman fan and would have given my life savings to have seen him on stage in "Les Liaisons Dangereuses" In "Closet Land" a film used by Amnesty International in their teaching about torture techniques, he was bone chilling.

"Dark Harbor" is really a film about betrayal and sexual desire, regardless of the cost to others. I would agree with a review which said, "it was cut a little too choppily" At times the sound could also be better.That having been said I have watched this film several times in the past. It is easy to miss things first time round. I don't want to say too much in case of spoiling it. If you choose to check out You Tube, which does have the complete movie, avoid the clips with the final scene, it really will spoil the experience for you.

My partner loves Alan Rickman (I'm not much of a movie watcher at all), so maybe we should pick this up for our allotted 'movie togetherness' (!sorry, doesn't matter how good the movie is, I always have to force myself to sit down for one!).

What do you mean by not getting one with the final scene? The ending to the movie sucks? So renting is a bad idea too? I think I'm missing something that I should be getting, sorry, feel dumb.

Sorry I didn't explain that very well. You Tube has the complete movie in x number of parts. (though that would not be the way I would choose to watch it; better to rent or buy.) You Tube also has several clips of the movie, including one of the final scene. It will really spoil the movie for you, if you watch that final scene first!!
I think I have seen almost every movie, A.R. has been in. I love his voice!!

I haven't seen this one, but it really looks good and sounds like my kind of movie (and Chris's too). Definitely going on my list - thanks very much for the rec! :))

I think you will like it. Many of his movies have a dark theme to them. "Dark Harbor" is one of them.
