I just watched a couple of films on Netflix streaming: Von Ryan’s Express, a so-so Frank Sinatra WWII POW escape film, and If I Were You, an increasingly intriguing film starring Marcia Gay Harding. It’s a film that bubbles with things I enjoy and find clever. The Sinatra film was pretty much predictable and by the book and not very convincing, but it was interesting for two things: the absolutely enormous number of extras used—something you don’t see much anymore, nor ever likely again, what with CGI, and the movie was made at a time when trains still exercised their allure. (Though good train films are still being made: Unstappable will keep you on the edge of your seat.)
