so, Netflix in the dark

June 18, 2010

Not having much  time to watch films these days I have taken to watching old films and television shows on a tiny netbook. It reminds me of my early childhood when we only had a small black and white set in the house. It was a long while before I realized that many of the programs I loved as a kid were actually shot in color. On that note, I always have a warm feeling when watching a well made vintage black and white film.

I watched a great one last night called “Bicycle Thieves” (Ladri di biciclette) directed by Vittorio De Sica.

The film is available as an instant download on Netflix.
