Synopsis: A quirky little independent film about a 30-year-old aspiring writer named Mia (Lindsay Michelle Nader) who has thus-far led her life in a less-than-consistent manner, much to the chagrin of her mother (Joyce DeWitt) and her married sister Anna (Julie McNiven). While catsitting for Anna, Mia leaves a window open and the cat goes missing. She sets out to find it, meeting a musician named Ethan (Justin Allen) who helps her in the search.
Featured Feline: The cat that goes missing is Bernard (played by Eizer), an orange and white kitty with a lot of screen presence in his brief appearance(s). Also appearing is a really pretty tortoiseshell cat (played by Melanie) which Mia saves from some unscrupulous film students. Unfortunately this movie does not appear to be available on DVD at this time.
Final Mewsings: Smoking is bad for cats, especially when you leave the window open.
Starring: Donald Sutherland, Ellen Burstyn, Meg Mazursky, Andre Philippe Directed by: Paul Mazurksy
Synopsis: An interesting look at Hollywood and its trappings through the eyes of fledgling director Alex Morrison (Donald Sutherland) who has just directed his first film and seems destined for success. As he wanders and ponders the subject of his next film the movie itself delves into cynical views of the industry and self-involvement as well as Fellini-esque sequences which mirror the style of filmmaking Alex himself admires.
Cat Burglar (Scene Stealer): In one scene near the end, Alex is sitting on a hillside drinking wine with his friend Andre (Andre Philippe.) When the scene begins Alex is holding a tortoiseshell kitten, which he then lets jump down from his hands.
Final Mewsings: Kittens and wine are a perfect pairing.
