Norman Jewison’s The Statement?
the Indian Runner?
Martha Marcy May Marlene?
Martha and Take Shelter would make a good double feature.
The Statement is ok but nothing great.
Take Shelter and MMMM are great, but a double feature?! That’s enough to make even the strongest willed cinephile wanna kill himself/herself!
How about you throw Melancholia into the mix and have a razorblade ready in hand…
Don’t knock it till you try it! haha
Anyone want to suggest a lesser-known English language director from the 1930s-1950s era I should look into? I just did a Phil Karlson quintuple-feature and I think I’m going to move onto someone new.
Still haven’t seen quadruple-M, might watch it soon.
I ended up watching the NBC comedies on Hulu, so I’ll pick ’tween the four tonight.
Flip, I’m not sure, maybe hit up Cat with that request (with Cecil gone, she’s the only other one I can think of), and Grey Daisies, I think.
Ok, I’ll play this game. I’m going to start a movie in about 20-30 minutes. Here are my choices:
The Crucified Lovers (Dir. Kenji Mizoguchi)
Deep Crimson (Dir. Arturo Ripstein)
The Young Girls of Rochefort (Dir. Jacques Demy)
deep crimson! u can thank me later (when u can’t sleep!) xD
flip trotsky, it seems like we’ve done this before…
(i still like saying that name)
Looks like Ruby has cast the deciding vote.
gotta go with The Young Girls of Rochefort, Deneuve is beautiful
—> flip trotsky, it seems like we’ve done this before…
You’re right! But I’ve watched almost all of those already. :-)
I decided to watch John Brahm’s Hangover Square (pretty cool! and a wow-good score by Bernard Herrmann) and I might watch The Brasher Doubloon next, or I might watch a John Farrow noir, not sure!
yay, i love hangover square! also the lodger and the locket
haven’t seen the brasher doubloon but script by raymond chandler, can’t be all bad…
Uli, not sure what you thought about it, but Parks and Rec is rocking the HOUSE these days (assuming that was one of your NBC Thursday night Hulu shows). I awesome sauce P & R
And now for my own options, courtesy of the public library:
Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy?
The Wild Bunch?
Marcel Proust’s Time Regained? (though I have never read Remembrance of Things Past)
Or I might just continue reading The World According to Garp. For a long time I was under the impression that John Irving was just a hack, bestseller-type author, but then I read A Widow For One Year, really liked it, and so far am equally impressed with Garp. So, well done John Irving, you don’t suck, plus you introduced me to Graham Greene :)
Well, Captain, Yimou is one of my favorite directors, so I think you can’t go wrong with Ju-Dou, Tinker Tailor was a solid film and I’d recommend Page Eight for a nice Brit Spy Double Feature.
And yeah, P&R is working top notch right now.
The Asphalt Jungle followed by A Man For All Seasons.
@Captain: If you mean the Robert Wise version of The Haunting, it’s pretty freaking good!
@Ruby: I’ve seen The Lodger too – also good! Though I thought Hangover Square was better. I can’t find a copy of The Locket, or I’d watch that for sure. I probably should have watched The Brasher Doubloon last night. Instead I watched John Farrow’s Alias Nick Beal, which had some good qualities but which I didn’t care for so much, even if it was apparently Farrow’s favorite of his own films.
I am about to watch a double feature of The Zookeeper and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy.
Zookeeper?? Did you lose a bet or something?
i can’t resist the double bill of the third man and brief encounter on tcm
no matter how many times i’ve seen them!! <3 trevor howard
hahhaha, that was mean, Ari, he’s probably watching it for a girl
right, cuz girls like stupid films. ^ i wonder if his wife knows about this…
i’d watch Titanic for the right girl, and I DO NOT want to watch that fuckin’ movie
Uli, If she’s the right girl she wouldn’t want to watch Titanic either. I went and saw The Raven tonight. I’d recommend waiting to see it. It’s ok. I was kind of entertained at times, but it was predictable and the acting was bad (sorry John Cusack).
Actually, Zookeeper was for a girl. But I had forgotten that the movie included talking animals. As soon as I realized this horrifying fact, I decided it was nap time! Gonna be starting up TTSS in about 15.
Nathan, then try to find Page Eight
@Ruby- I just saw a special showing of The Third Man at the theatre this afternoon, part of SF Film Fest. Good times!
Now I’m torn between catching Quadrophenia on a big screen 1.5 hours away from now, or staying put, order pizza and watch Thou Shalt Not Kill… Except on disc.
My gal still won’t believe this deranged killer was the same dude who directed the Spiderman series-
Sam Raimi! I still haven’t seen Drag me to Hell; was that any good?
Drag Me to Hell was frenetic Raimi happiness, indeed.
