Saw 12 Years A Slave. At times it can be hard to get through, because of, you know, slavery's ugly history and it's lingering effect in our country. Not to give anything away, but the ending is pretty anti-climatic, but I think that's in keeping true with the events.
Lars von Trier is giving up final cut of Nymphomaniac; will be seen in theaters as a four hour film in two parts, rather than the 5 1/2 hour cut he originally delivered.
I'm sure Schoolio will add his take, but this was one of the highlights of AFI Fest this year:
A really gorgeously shot experimental film from Ben Rivers and Ben Russell. Really pensive, for young directors these guys totally get it. Can't wait to watch it again.
Also, wow, Only God Forgives is up on Netflix Instant already. That was quick.
her was beautiful and made me not give a fuck about waiting in line for Llewyn tonight. Nothing is going to top the feelings it's brought to me. More later, but seriously, wow. Wow wow wow.
Yeah I know omg fighting robots vs. sea monsters or whatever but Pacific Rim is the closest thing to an objectively shitty movie that we've had so far this year.
Live discussion panel with the President of Criterion going on now
While sitting in the theater for 12 A Year Slave, a preview for Dallas Buyer's Club came on, and looked more interesting than the movie we were about to watch... so we switched over and watched it. Great film. Matthew McConajdfhaye totally nailed the skinny AIDS infected Ron Woodroof and totally steals the show. Love that guy. Took me about half way through to recognize Jared Leto as he was fantastically queened up, and Bradford Cox of Deerhunter as his boyfriend. Tiny role- maybe said two lines, but still. If you're weird about needles, blood, and hospitals, don't see it- but if you want to see Matthew McConajfehfbhey woo you with homophobic cussing, get a ticket now.
cool background music
Nice fellatio shot thrown into that trailer lol
Charlotte Gainsbourg appears to be beaten up in half the movie, bruises, blood, etc. HAWT.
Removed for nudity...

Not sure why ‘La Femme du Veme’, with Ethan Hawke, got ripped a nouveau trou du cul on IMDb. Enjoyed everything about it really. Set locations from the French Arab café life to the flicking light bunker workplace on through the stone streets of Gay Pari. And contrasts between the main characters with a brooding mentally ill, young flower optimist romantic, and the seen-it-all/know-it-all alluring confidant*. There’s mystery and thought provoking twists with just the odd dab of humour sprinkled in (exp: someone doesn’t flush the shared floor toilet causing a tenant to seek out landlord assistance, which is declined or when a girl is droning on about the pains of being an artiste and Hawke interrupts her with an “excusez-moi” and leaves mid-conversation). Recommended.
*Europe gets these kind of sophistiquer, we get The Real HoWives of … and Yoga mats.
The pilgrimage is not perfected save by copulation with the camel.
I'm like an hour into the most recent Superman and HOLY SHIT. This is unbelievably horrible. Did anyone like this shit? For some reason I recall the reviews being pretty good. This is fucking terrible.
I watched Leviathan this weekend, and I feel between that film, The Act of Killing, Room 237, and Nostalgia for the Light, some of the best documentaries I've ever seen have come out in the last several years.
Meanwhile, Blue Is the Warmest Color is an almost shockingly intimate (and no, I'm not just talking about that scene - although it is impressively graphic) portrayal of first love gained and lost. The symbolism is sometimes heavy-handed and the visual language can be unimaginative, but the experience is a rich (and grueling) one.
Anyone catch one of those "Wolf of Wall Street" screenings in LA yesterday?
Holy shit...Really funny and very entertaining. At 3 hours it could certainly use some trimming but it's a hell of a ride.
Easily the hardest "R" film I've ever seen, beyond belief the level of debauchery Scorsese got away with filming. DiCaprio
and Quaaludes....out of this world.
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.
All fans of Leviathan should also seek out Manakamana when Cinema Guild eventually releases it.
I thought Room 237 was terrible. A bunch of unsubstantiated bullshit that didn't add up to anything. I can't wait to watch The Act of Killing, though.
And I won't make Schoolio angry by typing it all out, but if you're interested the New York Film Critics' Circle had their 2013 awards earlier today and the winners are here.
Now You See Me is not only the worst film of 2013 (and there have been some real clunkers this year), but is also the most completely incompetent and laughably trite piece of shit since Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close. Holy fucking shit how did that ever get the green light in the first place?
