07:48 pm - I stand corrected (or sit, rather)
When I heard there was a remake of the Manchurian Candidate on the way, I essentially ignored it. About the only thing that percolated through was that Denzel Washington was starring, and so I went on my merry, dismissive way.

This afternoon, however, that was the film grouchychris suggested. Not having dug my heels in so firmly that the suggestion of someone whose opinion I respect couldn't shake them loose, I acquiesced.

I'm quite glad I did. It is enough different from the orignal movie to be suspenseful in its own right, and Meryl Streep turns in a killer performance as the mother. Finding out that Johnathan Demme was involved was an additional bonus. I was quite impressed. And recommend it, whether or not you've seen the other version.
Current Mood: pleasedpleased
