what to watch tonight

Uli Cain, Cinefidel¹³

Okay, so..

A) Double Life of Veronique- saw it about 15 years ago and forced myself to watch it even though I wasn’t in the right head space, and didn’t like it — I need to give it another try.

B) The Mission

C) Tony Kaye’s Lake of Fire

D) Cutter’s Way

… Which to watch?

Lake of Fire

Lake of Fire is about as good as one could get on the subject, I imagine.

Cutter’s Way was a disappointment—John Hurt didn’t work for me. The female lead, as well. It has potential, but it just didn’t work.

I haven’t seen The Mission in a long time. I never got Double Life, so it’s a film I wanted to watch again. People think highly of it, so I’d pick that one.

Haven’t been able to bring myself to watch Lake of Fire yet.

johnnie to mission or lame roland joffe mission?

@HoL

That’s understandable. Still, if you’re interested in a documentary on the subject of abortion, I imagine it’s one of the better ones around.

As I’ve heard. I both look forward to it and loath the thought. Before I had children I might not have thought so.

Does this also affect others’ thoughts on this?

I’m gonna go for “underworld” by Josef Von Sternberg

I love dead babies just as much as the next guy but I don’t think I could stomach Lake of Fire.

But I will watch Detachment when it comes out in a couple weeks!

Uli Cain, Cinefidel¹³

Detachment looks interesting, wasn’t in the mood for for a serious documentary tonight, but hope to get to it this SF weekend. the mission, while beautiful to watch is a tad slowfor late at night with a head cold, had a again I need my head right for Double Life. And so since Cutter was shot in Santa Barbara and I live an hour north of SB, I went with it. So far I like Heard’s performance, though not the character.

Kinda think we should make this the unofficial “What to watch tonight” topic.

What should I watch tonight?

Haven’t seen any of these:

- Bueno Vista Social Club
- Army of Shadows
- The Son (2002)
- Buffalo ’66
- Kes

Giving you guys a lot of options.

If it’s Johnnie To’s The MIssion, I’d vote for that. If it’s Roland Joffé’s The Mission, I’d vote for Cutter’s Way.

Takeawesome: Army of Shadows and Kes are two of my favorites. But all great choices. You can’t lose.

Santino

Taka – Army of Shadows is one of my favs. But you can’t go wrong with Buena Vista Social Club. :)

TakaAwe​some

Thanks! I’ll probably do Army of Shadows, seeing as how it’s expiring from Netflix watch instantly in five days.

Uli Cain, Cinefidel¹³

But make sure to hit Buena Vista Social Club soon.

Uli Cain, Cinefidel¹³

C) In Cold Blood

D) Z

FG, mofo.

Monsieu​r Arkadin

Funny Games is Austrian isn’t it?

Anyway, it’s good. But I’d give “Saddest Music” the edge tonight.

FG is the only one I’ve seen, hence my vote.

Haneke is Austrian, but many of his films were made in France.

Uli Cain, Cinefidel¹³

about 2 years ago

Went a different way, there There Be Dragons in, not yet sure what I think

Monsieu​r Arkadin

about 2 years ago

House,
I know a lot of his films are French funded and in the French language. However, I know FG is at least in German, and pretty sure was still an Austrian production.

Not that it’s an important factor on whether one should watch it or not.

TakaAwe​some

Not sure if I’ll get to anything tonight, but for tomorrow, what should I watch? Here are your options:

- As Tears Go By
- Y Tu Mama También
- The Night of the Hunter
- Winter’s Bone

Haven’t seen any of ’em.

@Takaa: I absolutely loved Y Tu Mama Tambien. Hilarious, sexy, fast, and endlessly fascinating. My second favorite road movie next to The Motorcycle Diaries.

Winter’s Bone is incredibly sad and bleak looking, but wow it blew me away. Lawrence’s performance is amazing so see that second.

Night of the Hunter (grabs riot shield) has aged in my opinion. But Robert Mitchum’s performance is one of the greats.

HELP ME!

A) Shoeshine by De Sica
B) Viva Riva!
C) Mystery Train by Jarmusch

Uli Cain, Cinefidel¹³

As Tears Go By is the only one I haven’t head of, go with that one.

Tonight is the Season 5 premiere of Mad Men and series finale of Luck, so that’s a three hour block I have locked in.

Uli Cain, Cinefidel¹³

about 2 years ago

I should have watch Z years ago, great film.

And Mystery Train is good, Jarmusch just works.

Uli Cain, Cinefidel¹³

So, Stardust Memories on HBO at 1245 or a DVD?

In Cold Blood?

city of God?

Red Shoes?

la Strada?

Loverof​LeCinem​a

I’m gonna watch In Cold Blood later today…

La Strada is heartbreaking, one of the only movies to make me cry. Simple story, resounding effect I still feel in my soul.

City of God was incredible! One of my favorite crime movies, but I’d watch La Strada first.

TakaAwe​some

about 2 years ago

Uli – Everyone loves The Red Shoes, I didn’t… thought it was extremely good-looking and well-crafted but that’s about it. I’d go with La Strada over that. But City of God would certainly be my pick out of these (haven’t seen In Cold Blood).

Uli Cain, Cinefidel¹³

Took in Stardust Memories, first time I’ve seen it in 14/15 years.

LoLC, I hope you like In Cold Blood, beautiful work by Conrad Hall behind the camera.
