Hidden by michael haneke it is not a bad movie or a boriing film , but i was really tired so fell asleep

I just turn the film off before I get to that stage.
First couple times I tried to watch 2001. Mind you I was 15/16 and didn’t really appreciate it at the time.
Satantango (disc2) – but there’s no shame there
Back to the original post I also dozed whilst watching The Colour Of Pomegranates – purely because it is extremely boring
2001 – about 5 times. I give up.
I fell asleep the first time I watched Soderbergh’s interpretation of “Solaris,” which I attribute to the hypnotic pacing and especially the ambient soundtrack. However I’ve seen it (wide awake) many times since and truly love the film.
I also fell asleep during the vastly overpraised “Inception,” and have since learned that many people literally fell asleep during that film. At the time, I thought it was an intelligent-enough movie, but … a bit soporific. :-)
The Seventh Seal
If I fall asleep it’s because I’m tired. If I can’t take the movie I just turn it off or change the channel. In college I walked out on Last Year In Marienbad because I thought, and still think, it was a big and bad joke. This is coming from someone who sat through all three hours of the tedious and pointless Le Region Centrale.
Another film I just cannot make it through is Paris, Texas.
Eternity and a Day
Last Year In Marienbad

The Thin Red Line. I have to watch it in segments. It’s like cinematic Ambien.
i was very tired while watching the 30-minute-long “les maîtres fous”; i was lying down, the cat lying and sleeping on top of me, i couldn’t resist.
As much as I like the idea behind Kiarostami’s “Close-Up,” the damn thing puts me to sleep every time.
7 times, 7 attempts while watching Polanski’s “The Pianist” but in the 8th time I finally watched the whole film. For some reason, everytime this film was on TV I was never able to see it in a good time and that’s why I slept several times (most of the time after the first half hour).
“Wrecked” with Adrian Brody….
So drawn out and just plain boring….
Solaris(still haven’t finished it)
Royal Tenenbaums(glad I did)
Jackie Brown(enraging my QT fan sister in the process)
Bande A Parte
A Night At The Opera
Culprit: my horrific sleep schedule/lack thereof, rather than aforementioned films. Though Tarkovsky makes sense.
Just happened to me yesterday afternoon as a matter of fact.
Pasolini’s Mamma Roma. I had just had an enormous cup of coffee, and it still sent me into a 2 hour nap.

2 or 3 things I know About Her
I bought L’avventura for $3.99 at the used video store I work at in the Criterion Section (which is known for being damn expensive) and was stoked, fell asleep halfway through at 4 in the afternoon. Finished it since, but I still feel bad about it…
Meek’s Cutoff, actually.
Again, it was a double work day for me and I was really tired. But, the film is kind of trance like in pace. I don’t know if I ever fell asleep, but my attention was kind of drifting for a while, then I looked at my watch and it was 45 minutes in so it’s possible.
Fell asleep during “The Red Desert.” I did finish it later and really liked it. But it is not a late night movie.
(ho ho ho)
The Limits Of Control by Jarmusch.
man i love this movie… but that day when i watched i was really tired or something. i don’t know. the second time i watched it without any problems :)
perfumed nightmare , through a glass darkly, andrei rublev. Great films though
blade runner on tnt
haha @ Inception, nice one my friend. xD
Metropolis, on all 5 attempts.
The Passion of Joan of Arc, perhaps 3/6 times.
waking up after a nap of indeterminate length in the middle of Last Year at Marienbad is highly recommended.
