    On the topic of jaw-droppingly gorgeous cinematography, Luc Besson's The Big Blue is a pretty under-watched early film of his that while extremely flawed, it just spectacularly shot.

    Exactly. I love The Fall, but next to Baraka it might as well have been shot by Kevin Smith.

    Koyaanisqatsi and Powaqqatsi are playing at LACMA this coming Friday. I've seen the former and it had the same effect on me that Baraka (which I have not yet experienced) had on TallChris.

    This is really cold.


    Also I rather love the cinematography that in Bessons' films.


    Sound of My Voice was great. The cult leader (and scriptwriter) had a very believable presence. The other two leads were well characterized.

    The Cabin in the Woods was a lot of fun. I really liked Bradley Whitford and Richard Jenkins but my favorite bits were seeing the other countries and the white board. I don't think the gender identity goes anywhere - though I was half expecting that to be the resolve, too. And I feel they held on the choices in the end long enough; much longer and you really have to go somewhere with it, which seems like it would not fit with the film (though there could have been more to point to that.)

    I also just saw Heathers for the first time; I'd say that I waited too long but I really don't know when this level of camp/artifice ever would have done much for me as I was not old enough when it came out, and it seems like this sort of thing ages very quickly. We had watched Jennifer's Body not too long ago, I now at least understand the parallels that were drawn but even more than that Heathers kept putting into my mind Juno.

    Yes, he has a fantastic eye. The Big Blue happens to be one of his only films that features a lot of exterior, naturalistic locations. Why he hasn't done more shoots like that since is beyond me.

    I really enjoyed his Angel-A, which is an easily likable movie. I felt this had great picturesque exterior shots, but obviously cannot compare to The Big Blue because I have not seen it.

    I'm a huge fan of all of his stuff. I mean to focus on the more natural beauty on presentation in The Big Blue - it takes place mostly on the sea and on the coast of Italy 9i think - it's been years since I've seen it). There's plenty of exterior shots in the city in Angel-A, Leon, and Le Femme Nikita, but there are sections of Blue that look like genuine nature photography. I still need to see The Lady.

    The penance for your contributions to this thread, on the other hand, is in its infancy.





    Uhhh, I probably like Southland Tales more than 95% of the population, but there's no way you typed this with a straight face.
    The cinematography was breathtaking, the score was gorgeous, and the special effects were terrific and tastefully subtle. I also liked that Richard Kelly introduced the Sartre's "No Exit" and had the couple attend a stage performance of it, but didn't feel obligated to thematically tie it into the rest of the story. So many directors reference works of art they like and feel the need to mold their story to fit into it somehow instead of just letting their muse go and take the story wherever it goes, which is where it belongs.

    When is Satantango happening in LA? I'm reading the book right now and want to finish before I see it. I'm going to see it: the book has convinced me that I can watch something this dark and intense and uncomfortable for 7+ hours.

    Edit: Looks like it's June 2nd, starting at noon with a potluck, just for current members first come first serve, plus one. Based on that and all the Ghibli screenings I want to go to, I just bought a membership. Anyone wanna plus one?

    Don't need your +1, but I'll be there with you - and then hauling ass to the Fonda when it's over to catch Mogwai.

    What did I watch this weekend? Conan The Barbarian - the original one. I liked it more this time, and I will not appologize for it.

    Also, the cinematography was really great in that one. It makes you weep a little on the inside when you see how shamefully cheap the sequel looked in comparison.

    Did you see Another Earth, by chance? That one underwhelmed me at first, and then proceeded to grow worse the more I thought about it. Brit Marling seems like she could be talented - hopefully she hasn't cast a horribly un-talented and repellent-looking male lead opposite herself in this.

    Didn't you make a movie or am I mistaken you for someone else? What festivals did you get into? Liberata Me got into Cannes when I hadn't even taken a film school class yet. But maybe you know more than the organizers at Cannes.

    When did I ever complain about being a dad on here? Never. Only reason anybody thinks I don't like being a dad is because thelastgreatman snooped into my old blogs from 4 years ago. And even then, I wasn't complaining about being a dad, just saying what I felt.

    This may slightly traumatize you, but filmmaking isn't a competitive sport. My movie not being good enough for a festival you got into does not make your movie good or even "better". In fact, the two principles couldn't be less connected. Even Cannes has programmed many cinematic disasters over the years, and by all appearances you would be headlining that sidebar.

    Look, your parenting is yours and Randy's business alone. But the reason your directorial ineptitude is being highlighted over mine is that you're presenting yourself as a rotten, self-satisfied asshole who, quite frankly, hasn't made a single interesting or substantial comment about movies since you first deigned to enter this thread. Thine epitaph shall read "Worst at Cannes; last to discover Internet".

    Thanks for talking about 24 hour party people in here. Never heard of it and really loved it.

    That's not entirely fair. He did open our eyes to the fact that Cabin in the Woods only included a bat as an advertisement for the Dark Knight Rises, despite the fact that it was made three years ago by a different studio.

    Having seen Cabin in the Woods and being a fan of horror, I have to say it was a very well made film for entertaining purposes, sure it didn't teach an amazing life lesson, but for the first time in a long while, I didn't feel ripped off after leaving the movies. The comment about the motorcyclist death being obvious and no tension; it was obvious humor; all horror movies need a light moment of humor in them. My only gripe about this movie was the ending: They didn't really leave it open for a sequel, and this is definitely a horror "Brand" where I would see the 2nd and possibly the 3rd one, even if they weren't the greatest. Netflix is great background noise.

    Now as someone who shows us a reel and the first thing I see is SyFy, I'm confused at your hate towards horror entertainment. Clearly you're in a genre that is about making quick bucks, in fact, a movie getting rotation on netflix/hulu after an exclusive cable deal is wonderful in the producers mind. Sure you may lose some stake of your project, but you got to work and give your crew family some work.

    I'm sure many people on this board (since this is LA based) work in some form of entertainment. Most are sane enough though to not link their work/real life to this board as well, we got some trololols.
