Keeping It Simple I'm with you. Graphic rape scenes are really the only time in movies that give me pause. It took me a few years to get the courage to watch "Irreversible", even though I heard good things about it over-all. I like horror films in general, but I'm not fond of these new horror films that feel the need to really push the limits by having a graphic rape scene in it. Movies like "I Spit on Your Grave", both the original and the remake.


Ghostchase I saw "Outrage" this past weekend and really liked it. Yakuza films are so much fun. Johnnie To makes really good mafia movies as well with "Vengence" and "Exiled".

I feel the same way about the Marx Brothers as I do about Chaplin. I admire them; they're obviously massively talented and very clever with what they do, but I never really find them particularly funny.

I think Groucho is one of the funniest people ever to have appeared in films. The other 2/3 I tolerate.

I suppose humour is a lot like sexual attraction. It's possible to acknowledge that someone's beautiful without necessarily feeling physically attracted to them. In that sense I'd put Groucho in the same category as, say, Greta Garbo.

Possibly the weirdest experience I've had in a while watching a film. The plot itself... if there even is a cohesive plot to begin with, it's rather vague at times. So many different elements are presented in this movie at once. The most bizarre scene possibly going to the peculiar creature on Anna's bed. I don't recall watching too many films about dysfunctional marriages, but this is one of the most powerful and compelling experiences about a couple's relationship deteriorating into complete madness and absurdity. The style reminded me a bit of other filmmakers... perhaps cronenberg, polanski (Frantic), and bergman. But this goes way beyond anything I've ever seen. I'm sure I'll have to watch this one a few more times to consume all of it. Even I was left disoriented when it finished. All I could say was "wow"... not in a good or bad way. I just had no idea what to make of it. Watch this film and it'll thrust its indomitable mighty cock into the rectal prolapse of your mind. Ok, carried away. Anyone here know much about the director? I'm definitely interested in seeing whatelse he has done.




The director, Zulawski, is definitely an acquired taste. He does have a few interesting films, though. "On the Silver Globe" is a three hour sci-fi film about a group of people starting a new civilization with lots of mud and screaming. "The Devil" is also good- it concerns a soldier wandering through a forest who confronts some pretty heavy shit. But honestly, Zulawski's movies can be maddening. He employs alot of fish-eye lens, wild handheld shots and characters that are quite shrill- basically they scream and go way over the top throughout the entire film. There's not much on DVD, but downloads are abundant for his films out there. A cult status.

I completely understand why somebody wouldn't find the Marx Brothers funny (as I say aside from Groucho their humour is a mystery to me) but I feel the same way about him as I do Laurel & Hardy. I know why many people are perplexed by their supposed humour but I find them uproariously funny (I reserve the use of the word uproarious for old comedy). Just to balance things out though, Chaplin is anathema to me.

I love L&H. I think a major thing for me with comedians is a need to in some way empathise with them as people. Although caricatures, I always think there are rounded people behind the L&H persona, as I do with WC Fields and Mae West. With Groucho, I can never get beyond the persona. His lines always feel like just that. (I have the same problem with early Woody Allen movies.)

I agree, but they're such FUNNY lines. More like somebody doing a stand-up routine. Skip to 1:50

That's obviously brilliant, to the extent that I don't even think it matters that it doesn't physically make me laugh. The thing with Groucho is I can enjoy him on a number of levels - not all related specifically to comedy - which in my book elevates him above a lot of what I'd describe as those 'lesser' comics, who just happen to tickle my funny bone (say Gene Wilder). In that sense I'd put him in the same category as Mae West - despite their otherwise very obvious differences.

Quatermass and the Pit

I watch this quite regularly as a kind of go-to comfort movie so I'm sure I've posted about it before. Anyway, brilliant. Although I do think it's a bit odd that most of my favourite Hammer films (a studio I make no bones about loving) are among the least stereotypical Hammer films. This is far more Dr Who than it is Dracula or Frankenstein - just as two of my other favourites, The Devil Rides Out and One Million Years BC, hardly fit that mould, either.
