    Donald Sutherland starred in what is, to me, one of the best horror movies ever made: 1978's Invasion of the Body Snatchers.

        Absolutely. That movie affected me in a profound way. To me, it is the perfect embodiment of a universal human conflict: the opposition between the desire to belong and the fear of assimilation. A masterpiece in every possible way, and Donald Sutherland's haunting performance is a great part of it.

    I will have to make myself a Donald Sutherland (Drambuie mixed with Canadian rye) in his honor tonight.

    Just got the record ... Klute is a fantastic watch if you like paranoid suspense political thrillers.
