    Rust and Bone was really good. It kind of lost me a bit toward the middle, but the final act was fantastic and it definitely redeemed itself. Excellent, excellent soundtrack as well, bookended by Bon Iver.

    I saw Django Unchained last night and it was incredible. Better then Inglorious Bastards, possibly his best.....and I have a hard time saying that because Pulp Fiction and Reservoir Dogs are so incredible......definitely a must see.

    Speaking of DGA screenings...

    Avengers screening with Joss Whedon Q&A (and others to be confirmed). RSVP gets you a +1. People hold tickets in their cart but it'll let you get one if you refresh a bit (hopefully).

    My sister and I are going through the Criterion samurai films. It's been a lot of fun so far (except for when we tried watching the Samurai Trilogy), and we've seen films ranging from an atmoshpheric ghost story to classic, straight-up adventure. One thing is constant, though: being a peasant sucks. Life consists of eating millet and then it's death by starvation, or death by bandits, or death by raiding samurai.

    Tonight I watched and enjoyed Shane Carruth's Primer quite a bit, although I feel it was a bit too convoluted for its own good.

    I don't see that 8-year period as any different from any other recent 8-year period. Hell, I might have said something along those lines in 2004 about something that came out in 1996 when I was younger and knew less about what was up, what was around, what was available and how to get at it. Folks have been saying that forever; it's about them personally, not about the external world.

    Also while I would agree that there is more content available now and that the average is likely better than before I would also say there is still a lot of shit that isn't worth considering and there's probably just as much great stuff as ever.

    This is something else entirely. There being a lot of great stuff out there means we can focus on what we want and if you didn't like it enough to think about it more and give it another close viewing that's reasonable. But the reason you're not doing that is that you don't like it enough and not that this is a new era and film should be made differently.

    I love it when an artist gives presents to an audience a work that keeps giving to a fan the more they revisit the subject. I don't think it works for everything and it is always better to have an easy to digest surface layer for the masses but it ultimately comes down to the viewers choice to keep diving into it or not.

    A film like the Notebook keeps getting rewatches from people but surely no one learns anything new from it each time, they just enjoy it enough to keep going back.

    It's a little late now, you can just keep your eyes open for studio screenings of films, basically until the Oscars there will screenings all over LA. Check the Variety website and LA Times website. Also, go by major studio websites ie Paramount/Sony - search for the phrase "For your consideration"

    The three 50's films about Mushashi Miyamoto, the legendary swordsman? They're rather generically called the Samurai Trilogy. Do you know it? Because gooooood lord I could not watch it. They're all based off a novel and the films seem to take scenes from it and present them with no connective tissue, edited together in a disorienting mash. The second film even has explanations of what's going on mixed into the subtitles. On top of that Mushashi is a crazy douchebag who's too good at kiling people. He basically kills people at random for getting in his way, without even using a steel blade. He fucking bludgeons people to death. Once I figured out the what the overall story was (crazy fucked up man learns to NOT KILL PEOPLE, becomes Zen master) I gave up watching it.

    Yeah, this is not some kind of modern phenomenon. I can't think of many great films of any era that don't demand multiple viewings, whether it's Sunrise or Primer or The Master. I thought Primer was amazing both times I've seen it and I would happily watch it anytime I got the chance.

    i've probably watched Primer 6 or 7 times... and not because it is some impenetrable mystery (i think two viewings are probably all you need to put the pieces together), but because it is just really damn fun and unlike anything else out there in terms of its dynamics and pacing. can't wait for his new one.

    Yesterday I watched Killing Them Softly. It was OK, there are a handful of great scenes, but a few of the talky dialogue sequences got me bored. Also, I had a hard time keeping track of who was who. I loved the opening credits sequence. Maybe I need to watch it again.
    We're here to play some Mississippi Delta Blues. We're in a horrible depression, and I gotta admit - we're starting to like it.

    Klaus Kinski allowing himself to be humiliated for a role in 'Woyzeck', then delivering the end all murder scene on his wife. It's hard to recommend this film as it is not to.

    It's difficult for me to imagine many people liking The Color Wheel as much as I did. It's one of the more abrasive comedies in recent memory, mining some of the nastiest sentiments imaginable for increasingly bruising laughs....and yet it ultimately involves into a somewhat devastating study of intimacy. I don't know how to describe it further without fucking up the experience, but if you have Amazon Instant Video or iTunes synched to your TV, I would highly recommend this one. I'm pissed I didn't see this 16mm gem on film when it played the Downtown Indie last summer.
