movie onlineMr. Hathaway's clear-eyed, no-nonsense approach to moviemaking has never been more effective, since he simply refuses to take the time to acknowledge the sentimentality in which the movie is really awash.

Equally important is the work of Lucien Ballard, the cinematographer whose career started over forty years ago and has embraced everything from the Dietrich-Von Sternberg Morocco and The Devil Is a Woman to the current The Wild Bunch. Anyone interested in what good cinematography means can compare Ballard's totally different contributions to The Wild Bunch and True Grit. In The Wild Bunch, camera work is hard and bleak and largely unsentimental. The images of True Grit are as romantic and autumnal as its landscapes, which, in the course of the story, turn with the season from the colors of autumn to the white of winter.

After The Green Berets, I never thought I'd be able to take John Wayne seriously again. The curious thing about True Grit is that although he still is playing a variation on the self-assured serviceman he has played so many times in the past, the character that seemed grotesque in Vietnam fits into this frontier landscape, emotionally—and perhaps politically too.

It's the kind of performance that I found myself beginning to remember quite fondly, even before the movie was over: Wayne riding the trail of the outlaw and getting increasingly, pleasantly drunk, finally falling off his horse and announcing to his party that that is where they'll camp for the night. There is a classic shoot-out in which the one-eyed marshal faces four outlaws, riding to meet them across a pastel-colored meadow, holding the reins of his horse in his teeth and shooting with both hands.

The last scene in the movie is so fine it will probably become Wayne's cinematic epitaph.

I was not particularly taken with Kim Darby, who is rather large and well-developed (both physically and as an actress) to be completely convincing as the fourteen-year-old Mattie Ross. Even her obvious, glossy professionalism is not entirely out of key with the Hollywood heritage. Glen Campbell, the country-and-western singer, is very pleasant as La Boeuf (which he pronounces "La Beef"), the Texas ranger who joins forces with Wayne and Miss Darby.

N.Ireland leader denies was to receive payment over loan sale

By Amanda Ferguson

BELFAST, Sept 23 (Reuters) - Northern Ireland's leader denied an allegation made at a parliamentary inquiry on Wednesday that he had been due to receive a payment on completion of a 1.3 billion pound ($2 billion) sale of property loans to a U.S. private equity firm.

First Minister Peter Robinson said the allegation by pro-British blogger Jamie Bryson was "scurrilous and unfounded."

Northern Ireland police opened a criminal inquiry in July into the sale by Ireland's Customer Reviews - state-run "bad bank", the National Asset Management Agency, of its entire portfolio of loans belonging to Northern Ireland-based debtors to U.S. private equity firm Cerberus Capital Management.

Cerberus has said that no improper or illegal fees were paid by it or on its behalf.

"A point that is hugely relevant to this inquiry is a success fee that was due to be paid to [Belfast solicitors' firm] Tughan's," Bryson told the inquiry on Wednesday.

"There were to be a number of beneficiaries to this fee.. I can now tell this committee, without fear of contradiction, that Person A is Peter Robinson."

Bryson is a pro-British unionist who joined calls from Robinson's Irish nationalist political rivals for an in-depth investigation into the NAMA sale.

Bryson has not revealed his sources, but members of the local parliament decided his reporting on the issue had enough credibility to justify an invitation to speak before the inquiry in public session.

Robinson repeated a denial he made when allegations against an unnamed Northern Irish politician were made in July by a member of the Irish parliament.

"I neither received, expected to receive, sought, nor was I offered a single penny as a result of the NAMA sale," said Robinson, who is embroiled in crisis talks to avoid the collapse of the region's power-sharing government between pro-British Protestants and pro-Irish Catholics.

The Northern Ireland inquiry was launched after an independent member of the Irish parliament Mick Wallace in July raised concerns about the sale of the Project Eagle portfolio, which involved more than 850 properties.

Wallace made allegations that 7 million pounds had been "earmarked" for a Northern Ireland politician.

NAMA is one of the world's largest property groups, having paid a total of 32 billion euros to purge Irish banks of risky loans worth over double that amount following a crash that forced Ireland to seek an international bailout.
