watched this while home sick from work.

zany capers, but it seems like the movie is about how mafia guys and con artists can get over on the Feds and all politicians? and the politicians are the ones who get the jail time?

kind of pointless but interesting enough.

6/10

just read this on IMDB
According to Christian Bale much of the movie was improvised. So, during the shooting of the film he noted to David O. Russell, "You realize that this is going to change the plot greatly down track." To which the director replied, "Christian, I hate plots. I am all about characters, that's it."

Makes sense. Like Goodfellas lite

The Bronx Warriors.

Great stuff

 


Wolf of Wall Street

Second time watching this. Enjoyed it first time, on the big screen, but watching it again, it just felt bloated, excessive in the worst sense. I still enjoyed it but ... yeah, hmm.

Undeniably pretentious and over-the-top, but the acting and photography are really great. Suzanne Clément (Kyla) in particular is fantastic.

Watch Journey to Italy today, I liked it but don't feel inclined to say much more than that.

I also watched this film yesterday, it's surprisingly decent for the sort of thing it is, small-time crime caper with heart that works well with limited means, a very solid 7/10:http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2724236/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1

Re: It Follows-

Yes! This was proper horrifying. Every time I feel like I've finally given up on horror, something like this comes along and blows shit apart. It was fresh and new but obviously paid some serious homage to early Carpenter (which worked well for this premise).

I loved it.

However, I agree with Tarantino's critiques 100%. It's very very good, but not quite great, and it easily could have been with a little more attention to detail. Unless all those "deviations from the film's mythology" are to be answered for in a series of painfully full sequels of constantly declining quality. Hope not.

Definitely one of my favorite recent films though. Very very good ain't nothing to fuck with. And it legitimately scared me, which is kinda what it's all about.

I went to see Hard to Be a God this afternoon, not really sure what to make of it. My first impression was that I wouldn't get in to it at all and I was wondering how long it would be before I got bored and left, but I stuck through the 3 hour runtime to the end. It reminded me of Sweet Movie and Marketa Lazarova, both of which I started and didn't finish. It's also got a bit of Bela Tarr about it, and maybe The Devils too.
It's strange, although pretty much everything the film does could be done in 10 minutes, and while I was watching it I kept checking the time, I also kind of want to watch it again. I don't really agree with the reviews calling it a master piece. But on the other hand I don't really disagree.

A strange one.

Great as always. Watched it while sick with my wife this wekeend.

Also tried to start Captain America Winter Soldier and about 25 minutes into it I was so fucking bored, and had absolutely no clue as to what the plot was supposed to be, that I stopped the movie. Has anyone seen it? Is it worth the effort?
I really dug the first Cap America film.

captain america is a bit shit.

casablanca rules!

and i liked american hustle a lot-- very entertaining. not sure what people missed in it.

...

lately i've watched a ton of good movies. can't post all the pictures so just google the titles for ample proof.

A BRIDGE TOO FAR - great 70s movie about operation market garden in ww2. maybe a bit confusing and scattered with all the characters, but great epic scope. also stellar 70s cast-- excessive, even.

CRIES AND WHISPERS - bergman's most color-based movie. in insane RED interiors! wowza. sven nyqvist won an oscar for cinematography.

THE RIVER - jean renoir's first color film-- in great garish technicolor. a simple story, but beautiful, told from the point of view of a child

wim wenders's angels in berlin diptych:

WINGS OF DESIRE - gorgeous, and pretty experimental, with all the rilke in it. an adventurous film.

FARAWAY, SO CLOSE! - a lesser film than wings of desire, more straighforward and hammy but still very nice and somehow managed to win at cannes.

and lastly:

ST. VINCENT - hilarious. and a bit of a tear-jerker too. i approve.

oh, and tried watching INCEPTION too but the blu-ray was fucked up. waiting for a replacement to arrive.

I watched:

The Babadook (when William Friedkin says a movie is scary, you fucking listen... He was correct, sir! Though the end was a bit of a chin scratcher.)

Gravity (not as awesome as I was hoping. But still, I love space shit!!)

i don't see it.

goodfellas is about hardcore italian mafiosos and murder rampages and cocaine paranoia

american hustle is about... mostly harmless, hilarious cons

it is not what it is about, but how it goes about it. This is about con-artists as opposed to gangsters. multiple characters give voice overs as if they are first person narrators, the progression is shown from low-rent con to high level grifter, etc.

Like Casino (also boring as all fuck), american hustle is a pointless two hours.

i didn't like casino, as it was a repetition of a repetition of a repetition, but american hustle kept me laughing. casino-- so serious! american hustle-- bad wigs!

the progression/buildup is just like any narrative structure with a climax-- i don't think it's exclusive to goodfellas.

The only character I actually cared about was the NJ Gov. Politto.

so, should I watch the rest of Cap America winter soldier, or should I give 22 JUmp Street a try? I recorded both on DVR during the STARZ free preview weekend.
