What have you guys heard about The Last Will & Testament of Rosalind Leigh?
Blue is the Warmest Colour takes home the Palme d'Or. Rumor is it contains a 20-minute lesbian oral sex scene.
I watched Side Effects, the newest Soderbergh film, yesterday. It was an entertaining psychological thriller with lots of twists and turns; very indebted to Hitchcock in its tension and general feel/pacing. Rooney Mara and Channing Tatum both have impressive turns in their roles, and even though it gets a bit out there by the end, I really enjoyed it. I'd recommend it.
Upstream Color was lovely. I certainly kept paying attention more than otherwise because it was Carruth, and it paid off. The ending gets glorious in just the way I love. The sound of the film is also great.
I made it through 20 minutes of Cosmopolis last night before turning it off. Usually I love Cronenberg, but nothing about this made me want to keep watching.
Also watched Compliance, which was good, but uncomfortable to watch at times.
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.
Anyone watch "behind the candelabra" ?
Loved it. From the writing, cinematography and directing to the acting, make up work, and set design just an all around great
film. Shame it is not allowed to be nominated for any Academy Awards.
Then I will hold you down and spit her percolations all over you until you're as greasy as the day she regrets pushing your big fat ass out her big fat cunt.
I will watch Candleabra... I like Soderbergh, Damon, Douglas, Lowe, etc.
Saw "Star Trek 2: Something Dark Happens" and liked it a lot more than I thought I would after the aggressively stupid Star Trek reboot. Benedict Cumberbatch was quite good as the villain (although I wanted a little more drama and less action from him) and the development of the characters was pretty solid.
On the downside, it's definitely more fun for those of us who obsessively watched the original movies. One of our group had no clue what was going on, because she'd never seen those... but obviously there were quite a few strong nods/direct thefts from those movies.
Just saw that Wild Strawberries is coming out on Criterion blu-ray!! My favorite Bergman I've seen so far. Still very taken back from watching in school this past semester. I would highly recommend it if you haven't seen it.
.... I loved the original Trek 2 and the original series episode(s) that spawned it. I really appreciated the drama that this bad guy had a really legit reason to despise Kirk, specifically, where most bad guys just had a rooting interest in evil, they have no real tie to the good guy they're terrorizing. That said, what early Khan had to go through was much more convincing than what new Khan faced. He's like "Kirk, you're personally responsible for killing my friends and family by stranding us in an uninhabitable planet" while Cumberbatch is like "Well, I'm pissed because I THOUGHT my crew MIGHT be dead-ish."
But I thought the new guy did a good acting job, there was just a little too much Star Wars reboot car-surfing for me. LOL.
So I watched It's Kind Of A Funny Story last night. I know it's a few years old already but just heard of it and thought I'll give it a shot I like Galifianakis. I wouldn't even consider it an above average movie at all. It might be because I can relate to it a lot but I absolutely loved it. One of the most enjoyable movies I have seen in a while, which is strange considering I think it is only an average movie.
The Seventh Seal is up there for me along with Wild Strawberries
I'm not fond of Persona in the slightest, but its totally because of my association with a certain profesor when I watched it... Anyways, lots of one I haven't seen on huluplus of his. Winter Light will be next, thanks.
Also, doing a Three Colors rewatch soon with a friend who has not seen any of them. Recommendations on Kieślowski aside from those? The Double Life of Veronique is the only title I recall looking at his filmography.
Dekalog, a series of short films made for Polish TV on the ten commandments, is a stunning set.
That was fantastic.
Have you seen Through a Glass Darkly already? Winter Light is the second in a thematic trilogy, and I loved it more when watching all three films in close succession. That said, I also just think Winter Light is a masterfully executed film on questioning religion and the doubt that any person can face when forced with an unanswerable question. He does it so starkly and with so much realism that it greatly affected me and has stuck with me more than any of his other films outside of The Seventh Seal (I mean, the self-flagellants are hard to forget.)
That was the first I've seen of the Trilogy of Faith. Might have been a good idea to watch them in order.
