    Eating Raoul is one of my favorite dark comedies, dated though it may be. It's hard to go wrong with Paul Bartel and Mary Woronov.

    And I'm assuming you haven't seen Burden Of Dreams, Chris.

    I also love Eating Raoul. And it looks like his shorts "Secret Cinema" and "Naughty Nurses" are on the criterion release too! I've been trying to get a hold of those for a while.
    Might need to get this release.

    He's not insane. He's the only sane person in Los Angeles.

It's masterfully crafted, and Tilda Swinton's performance is brilliant. i don't think I'll have any desire to watch it again any time soon though. Sometimes I forget that movies can have this kind of emotional effect on me.
    So now that I'm home, I D/L'ed this and watched. It was very good!

    The bond (or lack of a bond) between the mother and child was very interesting. My bf and I had strong emotional responses to the movie but for different reasons. The movie overlapped with experiences during my week spent babysitting my sisters kids. Their ages were 2, 3 and 4. I do not have any children of my own and I've never been exposed to little ones before last week. The oldest is a boy who has a terrible temper his mother also has a very bad temper. (Quote from movie: I wonder where he got it from?)

    I really like movies that force me to reflect about the kind of person I am and choose to be.

    Apparently the book is extremely disturbing as well. I'm probably going to check that out soon. Thanks for suggestion Drinkey.

    Same here. I checked to make sure they were ending up on there, and am very pleased to see that it is so. Although it will be anti-climactic to see them after they've been on my list for like 10 years.

    Ah, one of my favorites! it does well on repeat viewing too, there's a lot of bizarre shit to absorb. Whenever i watch it I wonder why the fuck Peter Weller didn't have a bigger creep, he's so great in that! The asshole speech is one of the bits that was taken verbatim from the book (Frank Zappa actually used to perform it on stage as a monologue). it's a very strange adaptation in that it ties in a several things from other Burroughs books and from his biography and melded all these with the Naked Lunch book. He's pretty much an unadaptable writer, but Cronenberg did as good of a job as anyone could possibly do in brings his complete lunacy to fruition.

    Guys, this is a huge fucking day. Redland - the film that topped my Best of 2011 list - is suddenly getting a DVD and VOD release through IndiePix! I will be buying the FUCK out of this tomorrow.

    Whoa! I am very interested to hear what others' take on this one is, since you and I differed so much, Gabe.

    Seriously. ANYONE who reads this thread - if you do me one goddamn favor for the next five years, at least spring for the VOD. I've got to know whether or not I'm out of my mind on this movie, considering that I don't think anyone else who's written about it likes it as much as I do.

    Let me put it this way - you may hate this one as much or more, but it will NOT be for the same reasons. Seriously, watch this fucking trailer; aren't you at least somewhat intrigued?

    I've watched Gummo once, about 10 years ago and I fucking hated every single thing about it and never watched another single thing by him since. I do want to track down whatever that was he did with Die Antwoord though, and I do feel like I must watch Spring Breakers

    Agreed. Regardless of my impressions later, the cinematography of the opening scene left me satisfied from the git-go. Must go to Iceland soon!

    I hate Gummo for personal reasons unrelated to its awfulness. I grew up in the real town of Xenia, Ohio (I was in the tornado that preceded the "story"), and Korine's version of the inhabitants is far more pathetic than the reality, which is simply boring and midwestern.

    I'm not defending boring midwestern towns (I moved to L.A. and would never go back), and there were certainly a bunch of dummies and hopeless folks there, but nobody was killing cats and screwing with handicapped folks. It's the same reason I hated "Crash"... it depicts Los Angeles as a bunch of racists living their lives by their grudges, when the vast majority of L.A. is working class people with neighbors of every color and nationality. The rest of the world has a bunch of misconceptions about L.A., and we didn't need to broaden the stupidity even more.

    Also, I don't like Harmony Korine, and I think he tricks his young actors into thinking they're making art at a time when they don't know better. I'll take Gus Van Sant over Korine every day and twice on Sundays.
