The Silent Partner (1978) Is The Silent Partner the best Canadian crime film? That's a bit of a joke because I can't think of any other Canadian crime film. I first discovered the film about 5 years ago. I'm a film nerd, and this film is so little and forgotten even the most die hard crime movie fans have probably never heard of it. The movie never got the correct distribution in theaters in the US, and wasn't rediscovered on VHS or TV the years following it's release. That's a shame. The film bookends nicely with Elliot Gould's other neo-noir starrer from 5 years earlier The Long Goodbye. Like Gould's interpretation of Philip Marlowe as a sleepwalking gumshoe trying to understand 70s Los Angeles, Gould cleverly makes his hero in The Silent Partner something more than meets the eye. Kim Morgan interviewed Gould recently as part of the screening of the movie Christmas Eve at the Fresh Beverly Cinema in LA. Gould says his hero Miles is "a very interesting metaphor in getting someone to come out and obtain involved in life." Gould plays a humble bank teller. He spends all his time alone with his fish, books and chess board in a cozy apartment that just begs to hang around in all day. He's shaken back to life when he search out a bank robbery is being planned at work. Instead if reporting it, he figures out a method to rip off the robber and bank. He wakes from his day to day life to search that he'll take a possibility at a criminal act. The thing is, he discovers quickly that he's very amazing at being a manipulative criminal. The most memorable stage in the movie is the bank robbery by Santa Claus. Harry the fake Claus is played by Christopher Plummer. It's a jaw-dropping performance. When he's not in disguise he's a overly-tanned slight man who wears eyeliner and long, manicured nails. A wholly original character. The best comparisons to other film villains would be DeNiro's Mephistopheles in Angel Heart merged with Ben Kingsley in Sexy Beast. When Harry beats a woman nearly to death at his gym (to make an alibi) the gym guy says, "Harry, you really went too far this time." Ouch. He's intelligent and deadly right from the start. Harry realizes after the robbery that he was short changed a pile of Canadian cash. He quickly puts two-and-two together and hunts bank teller Miles down. And every time Harry thinks he can intimidate and pressure Miles into giving him the money, Miles finds a method to double cross him. It's not "cat and mouse" it's "cat and cat." Gould goes the additional mile here. If another actor was cast in the lead, every hint off and double cross would have been hinted at. Gould plays it straight. He takes sharp left turns at full speed without warning. And it drives the professional criminal Harry crazy. It's fun to watch and reminded me a bit of Richard Stark's Parker. You're only shown Miles' plan when it happens. The rest of the cast is strong, but the movie is really about Miles and Harry. Susannah York (Superman's mom the same year) and model/actress Céline Lomez are the females in the film. York is frustrated after being dismissed by Gould shortly after a romantic hookup. But like most reveals you have no idea why until the finale. Equally stunning Lomez is under Plummer's Svengali spell until her ultraviolet end involving death by aquarium and a burial that would be approved by Hitchcock or Patricia Highsmith. John Candy appear in the movie well before he's a star. Even when he's doing his background miming, you can't support but look at him. A real film star. A few touches are amusing watching today. When the bank robbery first happens, Miles becomes a bit of an unexpected media celebrity. A 70s ver of a internet sensation. The mall Miles' bank is located is painted classic drab 70s brown and tan. The mall quick meal put is so Canadian they sell healthy juice instead of junk. York's large apartment is one of those "only in movies" locations that no assistant bank manager could ever afford. Finally, I should mention a few nods to classic noir. When York meet Gould for a ride to the company Christmas Party, she enters the stage atop a tall staircase just like Barbara Stanwyck in Double Indemnity. And Christopher Plummer wears a ankle bracelet not unlike one worn by Stanwyck in the same film! Directed expertly by Daryl Duke and a perfectly constructed screenplay penned by Curtis Hanson (who would reach even greater heights with his Christmas neo-noir LA Confidential!). Melody by the "Maharaja of the keyboard" Oscar Peterson (his only movie soundtrack.) If you're in LA, the movie is playing at the Fresh Beverly Theater Christmas Eve. Streamers can actually search the movie in amazing shape on Amazon, Itunes or Google's film streaming services for only a few bucks (US). Written by Steve-O
This application is more intuitive than the website, and it fits in the palm of my hand. I look forward to using it in Anehiem to support me navigate through all the various sessions with the built in scheduler and descriptions included. Android device Galaxy S5
I have been with this bank for 12 years. The latest 3 or 4 have been horrible. They have lost a loyal customer because they can't see the hand in front of their face because of the greed. They will talk you circles. Tell you thing and do another. This is definitely not what I wish in a bank.
Garbage. Mobile deposit feature results in an error every time. Really lame application all around. Partners 1st should consider hiring the same developer that built the Alliant Credit Union application if they wish to stop being embarrassed by this app.
Application has been nonresponsive since end of november. Called corporate office and they state they are aware of the issue, yet here we are 2 weeks later and still no fix. Obtain it together. We were forced to switch to your fresh "awesome, user friendly" application and it is useless.
I'm glad we finally have a standalone app. I look forward to seeing what improvements are to be made. The first I would suggest is removing the outdated Apple homepage look with a wall of selections. It would be nice to have more graphical representation of funds available and latest transactions as the main page.
One of the best apps I've ever installed in my life. The "correcting" feature is definitely an awesome invention. But there's a problem: if you obtain multiple chats and don't answer to them quickly, some chats will turn from blue to white (from unread mode to read mode). This makes me confused. And... It's gonna be amazing if Tandem creates the desktop version. We would love it soo 😘
When I started, I was nervous this would be a "chat roulette" type of environment with lots of creepy inappropriate conversations. But that's not the case at all. It's a amazing community of friendly people who are committed to helping each other learn!
It is long time to wait for response from the Tandem team. If they approved of your membership in Tandem conversations... I dislike it. You ought to simplify invitation procedure, cause such a strict selection won't safeguard ye versus windbags.
Needs improvement ! Excellent application to meet natives of other languages you are interested in however, your notice will duplicate! some will disappear and other will not appear till it feels like doing do the developers need to fix these major I !!!!
UPDATED 27th November, 2017: The community is still very poor and boring! The app is well done, has lots of tools and works well. On the other hand, the majority of the people don't wish to talk. I mean, the true issue is that boys only talk to girls and vice versa. They use this application more for a kind of "I will meet my future couple" than "I will practice and talk with any stranger".
It's a really amazing application with a very various concept (talk with native speakers) wow, what a special idea. The only drawback is sometimes the network is a bit slow, and so countries just have not good slow internet.
Its a really amazing application for meeting fresh people and language exchange. But the beta testers really overlooked this one. A lot of bugs that need fixing, mainly in the chat. Ghost massages, double massages, slow response to photos, texts appear as seen even tho i havent begin them..
