    Damn. I would love to see 8 Diagram Pole Fighter and Five Deadly Venoms, plus there are a bunch of weirdo films I had never heard of. i had no idea they did so much horror. January is going to be a terribly busy month for me though.

    Has there been a discussion of The Comedy (with Tim Heidecker)?
    apologies if there has been, a search didn't turn one up.

    Curious to see what other thought.

    I have a copy of it, but haven't had time to watch it yet. It sounds absolutely bizarre in the best way.

    The Hobbit was actually pretty good. I get that it lacked story but it wasn't such a potboiler like the critics suggested. I can't wait for number two.

    Don't watch it when you're in a great mood. A weird mood is probably ideal.

    And absolutely don't go in expecting Tim & Eric stuff.

    I had been planning on seeing The Comedy on Amazon Instant, if for no other reason than this great column about it on Grantland. Last night, however, I opted to watch New Jerusalem, which is the other 2012 film directed by Rick (sometimes shortened to "R.") Alverson. I gather these two movies are wildly different, but New Jerusalem was so fucking incompetent on every level that I don't know if I can bring myself to pay for more of this guy's work. The one I saw concerns, in its way, the relationship between a brooding Irish-American vet who just returned from a tour in Afghanistan (which perplexes me already) and the Evangelical man-child with whom he works at a local tire store, played by none other than Bonnie Prince Billy. I'm sure this movie thinks it's starting an interesting conversation about "faith", or whatever, but it's only the latest of many American indies that badly mistakes an absence of plot for the presence of subtlety. It makes for a pretty excruciating sit, and the wretchedly unimaginative, HDV photography/editing only made it worse. The only other thing that can save a movie like this - or, alternately, make it much worse - is the acting, and it's mostly the latter. The Irish guy isn't bad, but while I rather liked BPB in Old Joy, he plays this role so astoundingly broad - even though there are no "big" scenes that beg him to pour it on - that it annihilates any hope for this to work even on the most basic, two-guys-interacting-in-an-interesting-fashion level.

    I actually don't get any pleasure out of blasting a low-budget, no-audience movie like this, but when they're as terrible as this one - or my AFI 2011 nadir, Light of Mine - I feel I need to at least register an opinion, lest anyone who reads the same sites as me (The Playlist was really fond of New Jerusalem, to their eternal shame) get any bright ideas.

    So....yeah. I'd love to hear more about The Comedy. After seeing/loving The Color Wheel last week, I'm kind of in the mood for another abrasive comedy, and this one sounds like it might fit.

    Cheers for Badlands. Looks interesting. Hope Criterion does 'The Day of the Jackal' someday, as they look like the only who might. Their 'The Black Narcissus' is so damn dreamy.

    Yes. I liked it quite a bit. I'm ok with there not being a lot of answers, but the seizure bit was weird without any context or follow up

    See, to me it's very difficult to understand why people don't like his new stuff. That trailer is absolutely gorgeous. That part where it looked like the sand was bending and flexing...incredible.

    So i've been watching the first season of that mini-series Black Mirror... Very awesome, brutally dry satire on the technology/information age from Charlie Brooker. Well scripted and acted with compelling/weird plots that make me think for hours after watching. The second one in the first season (there's only three episodes) is absolutely amazing. You can watch them individually, plots/characters don't carry over.

    If you can't find it in better quality, which I def recommend, here's the second episode with hardcoded subs on youtube



    and the teaser/trailer


    This looks and sounds very cool. Where are you watching this? off of torrent sites? Its not on netflix which would make it really convenient. Thanks for the heads up.

    The Place Beyond the Pines trailer is tremendous - I'm as exited for that as any 2012 movie, Malick included.

    Two of the better 2011 AFI Fest films have popped up on Netflix Instant - the Dardenne brothers' The Kid with a Bike and Giorgos Lanthimos' Alps (the follow-up to that wonderful sci-fi flick Dogtooth).

    I think I caught it on IFC or Sundance back when I had cable and they showed that all the fucking time. Any flick that's got Nic Cage, Dennis Hopper, JT Walsh, and Lara Flynn Boyle in it is automatically better than 80% of everything else out there, but that movie's got a ton of wit and style. I'm about due for a re-watch. It's up their with Blood Simple as far as noir influenced indies go.

    EDIT: And it looks like the whole thing's on YouTube.

    Yeah that's still in the queue. Should bump it up.

    Watched the Imposter, Barton Fink, and Primer (again) in the last few days.

    The Imposter was really a engaging and chilling documentary... I hesitate to say anything about the story, but I def recommend it. Very well done.

    Barton Fink. Well. Fuck. It's hard to bump films like Big Lebowksi, Fargo, etc from the top of the Coen brothers' list but I swear this one might do it. Fucking incredible. I loved every second of it. Turturro, Goodman give incredible performances.

    Primer was much better the second time. Dug it and understood pretty much all of it.

    Thoughts on The Last Seduction (if you've seen it)? It's been ages since I saw it, but I remember liking it quite a bit and thinking it was nearly as good as Red Rock West. Interesting (and unfortunate) that John Dahl's career now mainly consists of directing episodes of Dexter and Californication.

    Just saw Crumb late Friday night on Turner Classic Movies. It says a lot when R. Crumb is the least messed up person in his family. Also, I could also see why Ghost World was a natural choice for Zwiggoff to direct next.
