    That's a whole lot of movies I've never heard of. The Devils is great, but it seems like it might be too pulpy for your liking. I've wanted to see Time Regained and City of Sadness for years. Are they even available on DVD?
    Dunno, I procured them through Karagarga. I'll get back to you on The Devils but you may be right, I certainly felt that way about Tommy. Still Fellini praised Russell and the film so I'm definitely going to give it a fair shake.

    These are both great. I don't see any chance that you'll like them though.

    Have you seen Losey's The Servant? If not I think you'd probably like it.

    Well although I think Blind Chance is superior I do like Run Lola Run and Heaven has it's moments. That's all I've seen from Tykwer. I found Fat Girl to be a mixed bag but ultimately I'm glad I saw it. My prediction is that I'll be mixed on A Real Young Girl but like Perfume, we'll see.

    Ok yeah I was pretty sure I had read that before but I couldn't remember for sure. Seeing that has prompted me to explore the rest of his stuff though. Checking out These are the Damned and then probably Monsieur Klein and The Go-Between.

    Stuck
    Interesting review, even if I think you are being too harsh on it. What I liked about it, is that you could watch it as this entertaining, WTF?, type of movie in the same way one watches a horror movie (I don't think Gordon should be dismissed as a 'schlockmeister' since Re-Animator is a very good little horror movie, plus some of the schlocky elements in Stuck of close-ups of gore and such that other directors might have shied away from, elevate the film for me) I like that the social commentary is fused into the film (like Romero's best films) and never becomes sentimental or schematic like movies like Crash. I also like that it never really fits into one category. It's not really a horror movie. Nor is it an Oscar baity 'important' social drama. It's just its own thing.

    Perfume might be the most underseen masterpiece this decade. Hardly anyone's seen it because of its ridiculous trailer.

    Speaking of which, Twyker's new movie is the opening film of the Berlin Film Festival. Hmm

    I think Perfume kind of sucks. But I saw the movie like two weeks after readin the book, so that might have something to do with my opinion.

    I overheard this on this bus and I'm trying to figure out what movie series he was talking about.

    "The first one was great, but then I saw the second one and it was crap and I wasn't going to see the third one but I'm glad I did, because that's the best movie I've ever seen"

    Any ideas? Something tells me it's Saw.

    By the way Sult is an adaptation of Hamsun's The Hunger which I remember you being a fan of (I've only read Pan so far).

    Actually come to think of it, he was almost certainly talking about Satyajit Ray's Apu Trilogy.

    Now I must see it. Also, an imdb reviewer calls it "irrational, desperate and oppressive." I think you might have downloaded the best movie ever made.

    There's been a distinct lack of posting on this site lately. Step it up people, I have work to avoid.
    No :P

    The Rambo series on the whole isn't the greatest. But the first one is a great film and one of the best "Vietnam" movies ever made, and the third one rocks. The second one isn't half bad, but it and the 4th one are more "guilty pleasures" than anything else.

    Oh and Tropic Thunder actually warrants a decent write up, if only because it was hilarious. Not as good as Burn After Reading, but still clearly one of the better comedies released this year.

    Although TCM is showing the 1925 version of The Wizard of Oz tonight I'd rather see the 1920s version of Alice in Wonderland that I've seen clips of on YouTube. That one looks kind of freaky.

    Haha yes I'm psyched for it... although I feel like perhaps I should read the book first. I've only read a couple of books after first seeing the film where my imagination wasn't colored by the actors and the imagery of the movie. Catch22 was one of those few although I'm not sure why. Perhaps it's because I read the book a few years after seeing the film.

    Why did I hear absolutely nothing about Flushed Away. Was it any good?
    I thought it was pretty decent. Clever enough to hold an adult's attention and whimsical enough to fascinate children. I liked it much much better than Happy Feet, which was the other major animated film I saw from that year.

    Oh, and Perfume is pretty interesting as well, I saw it when I was in England (I think it came out there before the US) and had no clue what it was before I saw it other than the title and movie poster. At first, it had the period piece meets serial killer mash-up going quite nicely, but then it took a turn I was unprepared for. I think if I saw it again, I'd really be able to recommend it as awesome, but since the

    Rohmer's. I truthfully didn't realize that there was another one, but imdb tells me differently. So Wilder's is good?

    Depends on your taste. I tend to like those early comedies with Hepburn, like Roman Holiday and Sabrina. I do think Love in the Afternoon is better than both, though. It's, at least, better than the latter, which was also by Wilder. I like the performances and the comedy - it's got this witty flow to it I found endearing.
