Dang it Drew is not here… I was really wating for his response. But I see why people would think 2001 is a reeeeeelllyyyyy good film. But I find it very masturbatory. I like the last sequence when that dude’s perception of time collapses. But the Windows media player sequence doesn’t really impress me now. Maybe If I had seen it when it first came out it would, but now… nah. I like my Solaris lava lamp way better.
Thanks. I will try to find Three Colors and watch them.
I really tried to love 2001, but to be honest, I’d rather watch Fahrenheit 451 than 2001.
Talking of films from the 60s, it’s impossible to pick ‘the best’, but Le Samourai, Le Mepris, and Belle de Jour must take the cake.
Solaris is a better film. I have a friend who just watched Solaris, then watched it on commentary, then watched it over again all in one night, and now he won’t stop texting me about Solaris.
Three Colors is an amazing trilogy.
nah,both are equal but Solaris is better in numbers because it only has one actual scientist :P
Solaris is WAYYYYYYYYYYY better than 2001.
Three Colors is pretty good, except for White. White can lick my taint. And omg, the theatrical trailer for White is laughable. They made a so-so film even look worse.
“Solaris is a better film”
See u guys later!
Ppl got jokes this evening.
I enjoy hideous wardrobes as well, guys.
Alright, I’m out for a while. Got some finals to attend to.
Speaking of jokes…
A panda walks into a bar and orders a beer and a hamburger. After he eats he stands up stretches and pulls out a gun shooting everyone in the room but the bartender. The panda puts $20 on the bar and turns to leave. As he walks out the door the bartender asks why the panda shot everyone. The panda tells him to look in the encyclopedia. The bartender looks up panda and he reads “Panda: Large black and white mammal native to China. Eats shoots and leaves.”
White doesn’t have enough of Julie Delpy!
&y, Vanishing Point better than Two-Lane Blacktop? No. F**king. Way. Way. Back.
Ok, you need an existential crisis then watch Two-Lane Blacktop again.
100/123 pages into The Stranger. Loving loving it. Especially the trial scene. Cannot wait to finish it during lunch.
The Stranger rocks.
My sister took Norwegian Wood with her to Seattle!
By the way, this is for fans of The Stranger… I got a copy of Visconti’s screen adaptation and will be uploading it on one of my YT channels. It stars Marcello Mastroianni and Anna Karina, and if my memory serves me correctly, you get to see a little nudity involving Ms. Karina.
Blue K, cannot wait. Reading it finish now.
EDIT: I was interrupted.
did anyone say nudity? :P
Speaking of Julie Delpy, I’ve been dying to see Mauvais Sang (Leos Carax, 1986).
I cannot wait to finish reading The Stranger. I look forward to it the way I used to look forward to finales of TV shows.
This page needs some Thundercats power, big time…
Carlo, I am going to call you Betty from now on.
iCarly is still his nickname.Thundercats… not funny
@Glemaud: Mauvais Sang is awesome! You should watch it asap.
I have not seen 2001. I have, however, seen Solaris and it was awesome.
The only Godard I have seen is Vivre sa vie.
I like Julie Delpy’s musix.
Mmm, Lactaid chocolate ice creammmm.
I need to gain weight.
C’est le vent, Betty
P.S. 2 of 3 Things I Know About Her
holy crap, you’re the best, Xtine! I’m starting to develop quite an AWC queue right now…
btw, there’s no subs for The Red and The White, it’s the same guy who upped Satantango…I think he’s Hungarian.
[existential sigh in regards to the 2001 non-debate occurring here]
Josh, You know if I wasn’t on my phone right now and with my family I would have a discussion on 2001 in a second!
500 Days of Summer was really good. Christine raised me expectations but still I was worried it would be too “indie” but it really wasn’t. I highly recommend it. Third best movie I have seen all year.
What’s the second? (Drew and I both agree that Tetro is number one.)
