Die Hard- First Time I saw it, Yippee kiy-aa motha fucka.
Die hard 3: Die with a Vengeance- Not a bad film, thee day they make a bad Die Hard film is the day America dies, this I am positive.
I finished Berlin Alexanderplatz.
Charlie Chaplin’s The Gold Rush accompanied by orchestra. I’ve seen it before and it’s a great film.
Clean, Shaven – bizarre, interesting, thoughtful, independent.
On Dangerous Ground. Can’t get enough of Nicholas Ray.
Performance. That was forty years ago?
Drugstore Cowboy 8/10
Eden Lake. To use the local vernacular I thought it was utter pish.
Mr. Hulot’s Holiday and The Man With the Movie Camera. One was light, funny, and refreshing, the other astounded me for its audaciou spirit and use of technique.
Just finished watching all 13 episodes of The Wire Season One back-to-back. Great stuff.
Yes! I’m on to Season Two myself.
The Wire is on my to watch list!
The Thin Red Line.
Vampyr. This is the second time I’ve seen it and I still feel I admire the film more than I love it. For anyone who likes this film, did it take a few viewings to catch on at all?
Quintet, a sci-fi film starring Paul Newman and directed by Robert Altman. Zardoz lite!
Chinatown – For the fourth time. It gets better and better with each viewing.
Street of Shame – I’ve now gone through three of the films in the Mizoguchi’s Fallen Women eclipse set, and I have to say that he wasn’t fooling around when he made a movie about prostitution. This one is probably the best of the set so far.
Classic Wilder, Some Like It Hot.
Today it was Cria Cuervos.Loved it. I’ve just been on a good movie-watching streak lately.
Rudy – I think I saw this in high school maybe. It’s not bad. A bit clumsy in terms of film craftsmanship, but it’s inspirational and fun.
Ariel – Picked this eclipse title up from the library, and I’m pleasantly surprised. I can see why Jim Jarmusch is into Kaurismaki. They both have the same sense of humor and story placement. This picture could almost have been a silent, and it would have been no worse for it. I look forward to seeing “Shadows in Paradise” and “The Match Factory Girl”.
7 hours wow…im tired.
“Begotten” Elias Merhige
I may revisit “Suspect Zero” later.
The Treasure of the Sierra Madre
Chungking Express, La Notte and currently watching The Big Lebowski.
various short films; among them, an outstanding one from Australia, called The Ground Beneath, by René Hernández.
The Serpent’s Egg. Bergman’s strange and dark tale of impoverished some-time circus performers David Carradine and Liv Ullmann in bankrupt 1920’s Berlin. Nasty pre-Nazi characters begin to raise their ugly heads.
One Eyed Jacks. Brando directed (his only) and starred with Karl Malden in this fine Western. Ben Johnson, Slim Pickens, Katy Jurado and Timothy Curry add color to this film with contributions from Pekinpah, Kubrick and Rod Serling.
The Hoodlum (1951) featuring Lawrence Tierney as the main hoodlum. Tierney was Joe, the gnarly old gang boss in Reservoir Dogs. He also starred in the 1945 Dillinger and the Robert Wise noir Born to Kill.
Just finished watching ‘’Le fabuleux destin d’Amélie Poulain’’.
(English title : ‘Amelie’)
Perfect as ever – est superbe!
Just watched Elevator to the Gallows, which did nothing for me.
