    Movies I own but have not yet watched:

    For All Mankind (Criterion Blu)
    Kieslowski's Three Colors trilogy (Criterion Blu)
    Antonioni's Identification of a Woman (Criterion Blu)
    By Brakhage - Volumes 1 and 2 (Criterion Blu)
    Zhang Yimou's Shanghai Triad

    I'm sort of putting myself on a movie-buying embargo until I watch all of these...

    I'm absolutely shocked that you haven't seen the Three Colors trilogy, Gabe.

    Well, once I heard the Criterion set was coming, I sort of abandoned any attempt to see them until it dropped. And since I got them for Christmas, I haven't had a good opportunity to make it happen.

    Break up the Brakhage into programs; it's too overwhelming to do it all at once, purely at a sensory level. The Antonioni is sitting on my self, too.

    I'm jealous of anyone who gets to watch the Three Colors Trilogy for the first time.

    Thank for reminding me. Been on my list since I heard about them.

    Do you all recommend watching them in a timely manner of each other or can I space it out?

    Timely manner. It's not mandatory, but the stories do somewhat overlap, especially in the first two. I watched all three in the course of 4 nights I think, but I'm sure taking a week to get through them wouldn't be a big deal.

    Alright will do. Looking forward to them based off the premise I've read and the pretty universal praise!

    I did them in about a week and a half, because Netflix was sending them to me one at a time. It turned out great.

    Those movies were actually assigned to me by my graduate advisor.

    One movie I had on my shelf without viewing for a long time was Deliverance, but I remedied that this weekend. The entire South should be flooded.

    All you guys who are raving about The Three Colors have seen The Double Life of Veronique, right? Good.

    Still holding out hope that Criterion has secured rights to the Decalogue now that it has seemingly gone out of print with those abortionists at Facets.

    I went to the Napoleon film production in Oakland on Sunday. It was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!!!!!!. Worth every cent of the $110 admission price. It truly was a once in a lifetime experience. I would highly recommend it if the San Francisco Silent Film Festival does this again with Carl Davis and an entire orchestra. There was a five minute standing ovation at the end of the movie.

    Gabe, I feel like our Brakhage experience with Texts of Light was preferable to the DVDs. Even though Brakhage intended for his films to be silent, they had such a great approach to scoring them

    If this happens again, consider me there. Any word on a blu ray?

    I need to rewatch Veronique; it had been too long and I think I watched it too soon after I finished the Three Colors trilogy and while I liked it a lot I would like to revisit.

    And man, I was so happy when I found Dekalog used at Amoeba. Those pieces are amazing.

    Yea, if they do this again I'll be back to experience it for the second time. They haven't released the movie with the Carl Davis score on dvd or blu-ray. Even if they did, it would be an entirely different experience.

    I haven't been here in a long while, and I was just skimming, so I'm not sure I get the gist of what you were looking for, but have you seen Two Days in Paris? A very unromantic romcom. I loved it.

    Also, has anyone seen Lord Byron? The only film I've ever walked out on. I'm kind of curious if there was anything redeemable towards the end.

    Yeah, the Brakhage definitely needs to be watched in segments or your going to go a little crazy. I'm a big fan of the Persians section on the second blu-ray. And I'll give School props one more time to turning me on to Brakhage back when we were having Tree of Life convos.

    I remember watching White with my wife on our first date in college 16 years ago. I guess I was trying to pull of the sophisticated vibe back in the day.

    I gave Noir his first Brakhage and was rather blown away by it. This was also my first experience with purely experimental/avant-garde film making. For a novice, it was rather bizarre and took some settling into. AND, if you get motion sickness, don't drink before watching them, especially when viewing the scratched images onto the reel itself.

    BELA TARR AT CINEFAMILY OFFICIAL!

    http://www.cinefamily.org/films/the-films-of-bela-tarr/

    The Turin Horse getting a week long run is huge. There are a few conflicts on Coachella weekends, but it's not any of the major stuff so I doubt this'll be a problem for anyone.

    Sounds like Satantango hasn't been announced yet, but has been confirmed to be sometime in May.

    A special delivery has just arrived. Ladies and gentlemen—we give you all 26 reels of Béla Tarr's SÁTÁNTANGÓ!
