Rocky: That’s what my Stepfather’s mother always told me.
Rocky: Too bad I haven’t seen her in a long, long time. :P
I haven’t seen her in forever.
Rocky: Erm, uh……..well then…………
That means I’ve never seen her, haha.
Rocky: I know, but it’s my policy not to try to be funny if I cannot think of a joke at all. :P
Anyways, is there anything you plan on seeing soon?
Not tonight, I’m just not in the mood, but I will probably watch Sanjuro soon, since I like to have seen everything I own. Also, I might go to see Toy Story 3 sometime.
Rocky: Oh, I didn’t mean tonight. Christ, that’d be fairly late in my book.
Apart from Sanjuro, how many do you own you haven’t seen? I haven’t seen it myself, but most people seem to be pretty pleased with TS3.
S, I also own but haven’t seen The Aviator and Legend Of Bagger Vance. Yes, Toy Story 3 looks like it will be enjoyable at least. The first two were my favorite Pixar films.
Rocky: I hope you like The Aviator, I thought it was fairly inventive for a biopic even if it’s not among his best. Haven’t seen Bagger Vance apart from what I caught from a really late night cable showing. :\
It’s been ages since I’ve seen or rewatched a Pixar film. What’s that? I think I hear my childhood fading away……..
Will Smith never seems to be in anything very good, but I still like him.
Rocky: I’m more or less indifferent on him.

I know some people who worked on this. See the film if you can. It’s great. Or at least watch the trailer. Support indepedent film. Woot.
Hiroshima Mon Amour is one of the best films I’ve ever seen. Of the 65 films I’ve seen for the cup, it’s one of only 13 I’ve given a 5/5 to.
Bumped it to the top of my queue, Ryan.
God I love Hiroshima mon amour. I need to rewatch it soon. Have you seen Last Year at Marienbad?
Speaking of brilliant and inventive works of cinema…
I just watched Step Brothers with some friends. It sure was stupid, and very fucked up… but I laughed a whole lot, so I guess that’s all I can ask for. :)
Haha, I’ve been trying to convince everyone that Muriel is Hiroshima Mon Amour and Last Year at Marienbad set in the ‘real world’ for the past one year. I must admit though that all three are insanely great works and one cannot be faulted for ranking Muriel third in the trilogy… as they always do.
I’m a little apprehensive about seeing The War is Over. I heard that it was quite the departure from the three.
I must admit I do rank Muriel third, but I really do like it and I appreciate you pushing me to see it. :)
Can anyone recommend me where to start with Lav Diaz’ films? As I see there a three of his films now available on DVD (thanks to JP Carpio!): Heremias Book 1, Death in the Land of the Encantos & MELANCHOLIA). Are any of them worth a blind buy? Thanks for any answers!
grey daisies – DVD’s from where??? i’d do a blind buy too
Yes, I’d be interested in buying DVDs of his films too
Here ya go: t h r e e f i l m s b y l a v d i a z
Grey Daisies, thanks for reposting the link to lav’s dvd catalog. =)
hmmmm. when there is no price given it usually means it’s out of the price range of the average joe….if anyone buys one, let us know how many 100’s of dollars you parted with! but nice to see that they have appeared on a lush dvd
Daisies, try PMing Ozufan. I think he’s seen them (he was planning on managing Lav Diaz in the DC).
I haven’t seen them all yet (I would have watched them all for the cup), and I am planning on purchasing these, just waiting till I have the cash and a way to transfer money to the Phillipines. It isn’t as straightforward as I hoped.
The price quoted was less than $100 dollars per film, which given the length of them and the small print run seems reasonable.
I would like some more details, please.
HOW long are these movies and why are they worth $100 each? I still have yet to find a film that is worth more than $20 to see.
