Went to see The Hurt Locker last night. Just got finished watching Hitchcock’s Rich and Strange.
bottle rocket at this very moment
Yesterday, I saw La Rupture and Repulsion. It was funny to see a still of Repulsion on the front page of Criterion website. It’s the third film of Stephane Audran I’ve seen so far, and I must say that I’m in love with her. Repulsion was confusing to be honest, and it was an interesting film after all but nothing remarkable. I might watch The Tender Trap before going to bed tonight.
Erik: I watched the entire disc 2 of the criterion Bottle Rocket and was floored by the original 1992 short…it was incredible in it’s own right…if you catch that I’d like to know what you thought
What did u think about The visitor?
Watched Pierrot Le Fou the other day for the first time., quite fantastic.
Berjuan: it’s pretty straight ahead and fast moving so far ( about half way through ) and Richard jenkins is insanely good in such a quiet and unassuming role…he’s usually such a loudmouth in everything ive seen him in :D
I’ll give a proper review on my profile once I’m finished though
The Tender Trap and Europa, Europa
“The wind will carry us” Abbas Kiarostami…a true gem!!
Hana-bi – Takeshi Kitano.
Just finished Green Fish. Pretty good, I must say!
X-ine, the director Lee Chang-dong is wonderful. His Peppermint Candy is amazing. I have a hunch Team Korea is saving that one for the knockout round…
" The Strange Affair of Uncle Harry" / Robert Siodmak
Just saw As Tears Go By by Wong Kar-Wai. I could see the seeds of something great but it’s no Chunking Express.
Last night: Abel Ferrara, The Funeral. “Don’t fuck with the devil.” And, “I don’t think any of you are broken enough to believe in God.” Two great scenes in a gangster film that is like no other. A masterpiece.
Later today, “New Rose Hotel”. Tomorrow, “Snake Eyes”. Ferrara is a constant. His work reminds me that this is how it should be done.
I Stand Alone, Gaspar Noe’s masterpiece…
I just finished watching Tess and I just started watching the documentary Lake of Fire. :)
Louis Malle’s My dinner with Andre
I watched ‘Public Enemies’ it was good, interesting. I would love to see the storyboard for this film.
Great Cinematography and Directing.
Double Suicide….very different
My Darling of the Mountains
Conversations with History with Stanley Cavell about his philosophical interest in films…
Tonight will be “Harry Brown”
I’m watching the Penn version of “All the Kings Men”, comparing it to the flawed original.
Jude Law is going about proving that he is a horrible actor.
Penn is doing his normal good job.
[last night ] tokyo story on bluray alongside the brothers and sisters of the toda family on dvd.
