    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.

    Samurai II was kind of worth watching for this shot though:

Between music, television, and film, these days we are so constantly bombarded from all angles (with higher quality content than before imho) that it's a lot harder for the consumer to find time to revisit things. Primer may very well be something that requires that. I just don't know that I cared about it enough to make the time for it in the near future.
    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.

    Just watched Sleepwalk With Me last night and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I'd seen some of Birbiglia's standup somewhere and I'd forgotten how funny he was! I just loved the entire vibe of the movie; from the opening address to the camera to his adopted fictional name (Pandamiglio) to the actually heart-felt semi-romcom plot , I thought the entire movie was a complete hit. Many moments of hilarity balanced perfectly with a sense of genuineness. Recommend.

    Also, watched That's My Boy while sooooooo high the other night and I loved it. I was expecting the worst movie ever from all the terrible reviews but I was pleasantly surprised. If you enjoy Sandler (especially old Sandler like Billy Madison, Waterboy and especially weird Sandler like Little Nicky, or Zohan) then you will definitely laugh at this movie. I know I'm talking to a sliver of the movie-going public when I address those fans (I'm one of them), but for whatever reason, all Sandler's weird voices and abominable acting is somehow endearing to me. I also love the delightfully meta-sense running throughout the entire movie runs and its complete awareness/disdain for wedding-movie cliches; if you've got nothing to do for 2 hours, and you want some gut laughs with some friends, smoke some weed and watch That's My Boy. ESPECIALLY if you know nothing about the plot going in.

    I'll be there when Superman is released just to stare at Henry Cavill's chiseled face for a couple of hours. I have no idea whether or not he can act, since he didn't display any prowess in The Tudors (in his defense, no one else in that show did either) and I hope to god his American accent won't be terrible, but DAMN he'll be the most beautiful Superman ever.

    Right, kept messing that up. I noticed last night it just showed up on Netflix Instant. I missed the one week it was on a screen before.

    I have been wanting to see this along with the documentary she did about her parents. Unfortunately the movie had limited release here- did you see it on Netflix?

    Thanks for the heads up on this. Just watched it tonight, and I thought it was excellent. Beautifully shot film. Odd casting choice, but I thought Seth Rogen was surprisingly good in a dramatic role.
