    Over the past few days I've watched a couple of films from this thread to start playing catch-up and it's paid off very well so far.

    A Separation was one that's long eluded me, even though I knew it was universally praised. Somehow I had thought it was essentially an Iranian Scenes from a Marriage. I was very happy to find that it was much more than that. But damn, the real surprise was Green Room, maybe because I had more modest expectations. It's not easy to make a film feel dangerous and tense for nearly 90 straight minutes, but this one had me gripped. I thought no way would it stick the ending, but the ending was fantastic! Really surprised at how effective it was.
    Nice! Glad you dug it, and your thoughts further down are great. It's one of the few thrillers I've seen where it feels like it's happening as you're watching it.

    I've put together a checklist for myself, hoping to watch at least one new film from everybody's list by the end of the year. If I can get through these, I'll try to watch more. Here's what I am targeting so far:

    What We Do in the Shadows (transmogrifier)
    The Great Beauty (Grouchy)
    Cloud Atlas (Peng)
    A Separation (Mr. McGibbletts)
    The Immigrant (Pop Trash)
    Green Room (Dead and Messed Up)
    Upstream Color (Neclord)
    The Forbidden Room (baby doll)
    Oslo, August 31st (Ezee)
    Our Little Sister (Purple)
    The Lost City of Z (Watashi)
    Only Lovers Left Alive (dreamdead)
    I Saw the Devil (Duke)
    Prisoners (Ivan)

    I wanted to read the book first, which is why it's taken me so long. That may or may not happen.

    Cloud Atlas is one of the few movies I have done a complete 180 upon rewatch. I unabashedly love it now even though I still recognize the same qualms from my first viewing.

    I think that is just some junk characters that copied over from my copy/paste from Letterboxd. So ignore them. My list will be based on those movies plus anything in 2019.

    To this day I keep doing 180s on it. The first time I saw it I was meh on it, after the second I loved it. Then on the third time, I hated it and gave up on it. But when I reflect on it now, I admire it for its ambition. It's still a mess, but one that's watchable.

    I can't get past Tom Hanks being horribly miscast in Cloud Atlas, but similar to Suspiria 2K18, I'm glad ambitious follies like these exist.

    Going through these lists made me realize how many foreign language blindspots I still have. I blame crappy USA distribution.

    There are ways to circumvent this: torrents, festivals, not living in North America.
    Just because...
    Snakeskin (Daniel Hui, 2014) warm
    Cloverfield (Matt Reeves, 2008) mild
    A Man of Integrity (Mohammad Rasoulof, 2017) mild
