Sydney Pollack goes south of the equator

Having directed "They Shoot Horses, Don't They?", "The Way We Were", "Three Days of the Condor" and "Tootsie", Sydney Pollack would seem an odd choice to direct an epic about a Danish baroness's experience in colonial Kenya. But not only did he do so, he did a good job with it. Even if we take the cynical approach and say that it's another white-person-goes-to-Africa story, you can't ignore the effort that Meryl Streep and Robert Redford put into their roles. I would've liked to see the Kikuyu characters more developed, though.

As to whether this deserved Best Picture for that year, it's hard to say. There were lots of good movies released that year (everyone should see "The Color Purple"). What you can't deny is its place in cinema history. It's the sort of movie that you should see at least once. I recommend it, even if it isn't the greatest movie ever.

Also starring Klaus Maria Brandauer and Michael Gough (Alfred in the 1989-97 Batman movies).

Above Clouds

When I listen Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart ' s Clarinet concerto in A major, K. 622 - Adagio - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rjzf_cWzlp8 - I realized that director Sydney Pollack' s film Out of Africa, 1985 , which tells Baroness Karen von Blixen-Finecke (1885-1962)' s life is actually telling highly solid an admirable dream.

Overrated romance

"I. . .had a farm. . .in Africa," Meryl Streep croaks out in the opening narration of the movie Out of Africa. For some unknown reason, Sydney Pollack's movie became incredibly famous and swept up seven Oscars in 1986, including Best Picture, Director, and unfortunately Music. John Barry's boring theme beat out Quincy Jones's The Color Purple and Bruce Broughton's Silverado.

If you absolutely love Meryl Streep and every movie she's ever done, you could stand to sit through Out of Africa. She plays a Danish baroness who runs a coffee plantation in Kenya in the early 1900s. We all know Streep is an expert on accents, so there's no disappointment in her performance, only the story. She's married to Klaus Maria Brandauer, but when she meets big game hunter Robert Redford, they have an affair. There are a couple of really famous scenes from this romance: the scene where the lovebirds are up in Redford's plane and hold hands, and the scene where he washes her hair. I don't understand the allure of either scene. At that time, private airplanes were very dangerous; why is it romantic knowing you could crash and burn at any moment? And when you're out in the elements without a regular hygiene regiment, why would you want your lover to wash your hair? "It's a little oily back here. Gee, your hair's snarly!" doesn't sound very romantic to me.
