Old movies almost always disappoint me. Maybe they were groundbreaking at the time, but now they have a host of problems. Aside from technical issues, film-makers today are far more versed in a wide range of cinematic techniques. Acting is also much more realistic now, actors are used to film cameras and not theater stages. Today I was disappointed by "Ikiru" (Kurosawa). I know Kurosawa's supposed to be this genius, but I find all of his films unwatchable. I'm happy to let Tarantino watch them and adapt them in much more enjoyable modern versions.
