    My sentiments exactly. Even 3 hours for that Zulawski screening a few weeks ago was a tremendous endurance test.

    ... speaking of trilogies, watched Deep Mehta's Water, the last film in her Earth, Fire, Water elements trilogy. I love this collection of rather lyrical films. Water is especially sorrowful and contemplative. The script isn't perfect, but I love how Mehta married some of the excesses of Hindi cinema melodrama with the restraint of some of the best Indian parallel cinema. I can't wait to see what she does with Salman Rushdie's Midnight's Children which is due out later this year.

    Give it another shot someday. If you're open to his perspective as an artist, I think it'll crystallize for you over time.

    Matt and I saw Werckmeister Harmonies at Cinefamily last night. This goes on the shortlist of finest theatrical experiences I've ever had. If you live in Los Angeles, you'll find a way to catch tonight's show.

    Definitely revisit it later. It's quite possibly my favorite of his, and possibly my favorite film.

    There were definitely parts that I did like. I loved when the boy was burning a bush, and his mom (or whatever) was talking about Moses seeing the burning bush, and she said, "Why didn't something like that ever happen to me?" I also liked the poetry, the scene at the shooting range, and I liked when they fell with the fence in the beginning.

    But by the end of it, I felt a little exhausted about it. I may revisit it after watching the rest of his movies (and then some).

    How have I never watched Michael Mann's Thief before? It's such a perfect example, and probably the beginning of, the "Neon Noir" subgenre I'm so fond of, and blends classic film noir with classic gangster films so well. It's absolutely riveting as a crime picture from beginning to end and James Caan is fucking brilliant in it.

    Awesome, I'll add that to the ever-growing queue. I watched Luis Bunuel's L'Age D'Or tonight and thoroughly enjoyed it. Thanks for the rec, Jared.

    I would also like to point out that tangerine Dream's sort of crazy score, that i had listened to many times prior to seeing the film, works a lot better than I than i ever would have hoped for in Thief

    Alps is very different from Dogtooth... I mean... it's not science fiction.

    I'll probably be going to see Patience (After Sebald).

    I highly recommend Wu Xia. It's the kung-fu version of A History of Violence.

    I watched I Am Cuba over the weekend. Wow, what a wonderful film. It's a Russian production from the 1960s and uses a series of four vignettes to convey the need for drastic change in pre-revolutionary Cuba. Nevermind the politics involved - this film contains some of the most virtuosic shots I've ever seen put on celluloid. Anyone who's ever seen Boogie Nights will recognize the origin of the famous pool diving camera shot.

    I've seen it, I really enjoyed it, though I remember there being quite a few characters to keep track of. The music in it was very good as well.
    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.

    All of you who failed cinema by not seeing Werckmeister Harmonies in 35 will get one last chance to atone on Monday night at 9:45. Cinefamily sure knows how to program a Coachella hangover.
