    That looks gorgeous.

    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

    Just want to highlight this recommendation. Caught it last night and thought it was an excellent action flick. Anyone that's a fan of kungfu movies should watch.

    Thanks for this. I'm gonna try to hit one, probably Boxer's Omen. That looks nuts.

    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.

    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.
