I don’t quite get what’s going on here……
what the thing about PTA?
Den: No, just how vacant the thread has been.
the site was down for hours
Den: Oh, I didn’t know that. I’ve been away most of the day.
How is life going?
Berjuan: So-so, more or less. How’s everything goin’ for you?
Bring back DC Follies and put more clips with the woody allen puppet on youtube
Same here Josh, im tired, had a very long day. I want to go to sleep but if I do I wont’ sleep tonight…. so many conflicts. Do you have films programmed for today?
Berjuan: Has it just been one of those ‘long’ days or did something happen?
I’m gonna try to watch the first two episodes of Fanny and Alexander tonight, but I’m not sure if I will or not. Have you anything planned?
Its just one of those long days Josh. I’ll get through it!
Josh, I have the boxset! but haven’t had a chance to watch it yet. I planning on continuing Dekalog and Twin Peaks…. I also have Climates and Fat Girl (free from The Auteurs) and about 6 more movies to choose from…. I also have Last Year in Marienbad…. it going to be tough choosing but the week end is coming up!!!!
Berjuan: Gotcha, just hoping it was nothing too bad. :)
I was surprised to find out it had fewer episodes than Scenes from a Marriage, unfortunately I’ll have to wait several days before I get the next two episodes. ]:\
I need to try to see some of those free films before they’re down. I wanna try to catch Happy Together especially so I can contribute something to the WKW disucssion otherwise it will be like I’m in a band of outsiders.
Seen anything recently or have you just been watching Dekalog and Twin Peaks?
Im good Josh, thanks for asking.
I watched a very good cuban film Memories of Underdevelopment one of the best films I’ve seen in my life. The one thing that I saw that was made in USA was Logorama… its a very nice short, nothing like what I was expecting. Happy Together is one of WKW’s strongest imo, but I hear good things about Climates and Fat Girls… Amacord looks pretty cool too. I don’t think Harakiri and L’aventura need a rewatch yet.
By the way Memories of Underdevelopment is on youtube if you want to check it out, you can also look for it under Memorias del Subdesarrollo. I did 2 very extensive image post on this film. I think it deserves some attention. I haven’t stopped thinking about it since I watched it.
Berjuan: Yes I noticed your image post. ;) What is MoU about? Maybe I’ll look it up later today, hopefully I won’t need a detective to find it. If I watch it, I hope it will leave me breathless.
I’ve heard good things about Fat Girl too, but I’m not extremely interested in seeing it, to be honest. o_o
MoU… is a very original film Josh its political ala JLG, its surreal ala Bunuel, its part documentary ala Chris Marker, its the story of a man growing more and more distant from hiimself ala Camus, from his coulture, from his country… The film itsefl is so well done. I don’t have a top 10 right now but I was going to consider a latin american film MoU would be it. You know what forget WKW. Watch MoU!
I call time out on this one because I just really wanted that to make compleate sense.
Berjuan: I’ve neither read Camus nor seen Marker. :( Nonetheless, don’t be too pushy. ;)
Gotta go eat dinner, see you guys later. :)

Evil lurks in the shadows.
forget everything Josh and read The Odyssey by Homer, you know why ;)
The Iliad > The Odyssey
Hehe, Im not being pushy :D. I’m just really exited about that film… But I understand. Bon apetit!
I heard that was a best selle… like in 400 BC!
yes Blue but:
The Odyssey > O Brother Where Art Thou?
lol, true, Dimitris, lol
The Oh Brother Soundtrack > O Brother Where Art Thou
Then again, Ace Ventura Pet Detective might be better than Oh Brother
Ace Ventura is miles ahead of O Brother!!!!
(only the first)
I do not think that the Coens true grit with either be as good as the original book or film.
Basically they should do their own stuff
Berj’s right though, the music of O Brother makes the film.
True Grit sounds like a really bad idea….
Look at this masterstroke of comedic timing.
I look back at things like this and am really shocked tha movies like this were once the pinnacle of comedy for me.
what is wrong with the second Ace film?
It has that hilarious Monopoly Man scene, the rhino scene & most important Tone Loc and Courtney Cox are nowhere in sight
Oh…….you people really try to piss me off, don’t ya? :P
