what film would you recommend?
Seen Themroc or The Holy Mountain? It’s late and brain ain’t working, might think of other stuff tomorrow.
Guy Madden’s ‘The Saddest Music in the World’ or ‘My Winnipeg’.
Why’d this fella take so long?
Psalm III: ‘Night of the Meek’ by Phil Solomon – watch it here: http://musings.philsolomon.com/?p=228
Grey Daisies, do you know where any of his other stuff is available?
Jye, you’re from Australia! From which city or town do you hail? I’m from Melbourne!
A film unlike any you’ve experienced before?
Since it has already been mentioned in this thread, I will second “The Holy Mountain” and mention another Alejandro Jodorowsky film, “El Topo”.
“WR: Mysteries of the Organism” springs to mind as an extremely odd feature.
Staying around that part of the world and time, I can’t go past “Daisies”.
I hope these help!
Takashi Miike’s Happiness of The Katakuris. Mind you, I don’t know what you’ve seen. I’d be surprised if you’d seen anything quite like that one though :o)
The Color of Pomegranates stands out for me
Historias Extraordinarias by Mario Llinas!
“IF I WERE TO ASK YOU TO RECOMMEND A FILM THAT IS TOTALLY UNLIKE ANY I WOULD HAVE SEEN…”
….I would have to know every movie you’ve ever seen, and would still be at a lost because they share a like aspect of being a film.
However, I would recommend you just browse through that FILMS link at the top left of this page. There may be a lot you’ve seen there, but I promise there’s a lot that you haven’t. I do not believe anybody can have seen all of the movies that are listed on this site.
the cook, the thief, his wife and her lover
Or go to the Garage section of this web site!
one word- ‘Nollywood’, the premier film industry of west-africa, just pull out any film from its rotting vast labyrinth and i guarantee that you will never remain the same (if you indeed get through it.
@Robley: Keep your eyes open for a future Criterion release :)
Valerie and her Week of Wonders.
“Valerie and her Week of Wonders.
yeah baby, yeah…
AND Funeral Parade of Roses AND Dog Star Man.
“Sweet Movie” Dusan Makavejev
Wonderfully disturbing.. but what a sweeping visual metaphor for the history of everything in the world..
Love it or hate it, it will affect you deeply..
I’m from Queensland. About an hour out from Brisbane.
Nice to meet you, mate.
Avatar looks like a videogame.
Begotten from E. Elias Merhige comes to mind.
PASTORAL: TO DIE IN THE COUNTRY!!!!!!!!
Debbie Does Dallas, actually have probably seen that one.
2001: A space Odyssey
People who think Avatar shows a new language in cinema are advised to watch the above three films.
Koyaanisqatsi didn’t come up just then for some reason. Weird.
Before answering I quickly scanned your fave film list and ‘unlike any I would have seen’ makes it a tricky request.
I shall 2nd “WR: Mysteries of the organism” Good call there.
“Ponypool” Just seen this and loved it.
“The Brick” If Shakespeare wrote film noir I think this could be one of his scripts. Lol!
Warning. From my experience. The sound is crap on just a TV. Better on 5:1 or it’s hard to hear what they are saying and it’s a very verbal movie.
