Sit On It

Alex Papps fan and crafty comment giver to this very site, Ramona has started her own nifty movie/TV blog thingy called Couchville.

And I like it.

Here's a bit of what she reckons about Joaquin Phoenix in that Johnny Cash flick.
But at the centre of all of it is Joaquin and a performance so vulnerable and raw and brilliant it made me weak at the knees. It's so exciting to watch a film when you suspect it is the performance an actor will be remembered for - the best they will ever give us

Think of Kevin Spacey in American Beauty
Think of Edward Norton in Fight Club
Think of Guy Pierce in Memento
Think of Johnny Depp in Dead Man
Think of Christian Bale in American Psycho
you get the idea.

River Phoenix never came close.
Oh dear. I've mentioned River Phoenix. Wonder if that freak's gonna start emailing me again.
