Been on a John Huston kick lately and watched all of his films (except "Freud" if anyone knows where to find it!).

For his final film, "The Dead" is a nice, delicate way to an end a career. I still think "The Misfits" is his masterpiece though.

Yes, I had not seen this movie, and his recent death and making the thread about it made me really interested in it.

I'm generally a Ferrara fan but there's something inbuilt into all his films where they teeter on the edge of feeling like a group therapy session and in some cases, like DG, they fall over that edge. He made The Blackout a few years later that tackled similar themes but was far better, I thought. I tend to think he made that film because he wanted to try and correct the mistakes of DG.


Saw this at a dilapitated art house theater when it was released in '94 and loved it. Ended up being one of my favs of that particular year. Probably because the sadistic mood of the film fit the grungy theater so well, but Ferrera's confused cross cutting between real life and film and how the performances affect their actual lives was well done. Watched it about a year ago and it definitely held up well.

Watched "the bed you sleep in" last night. It was actually really good. I say actually like I'm surprised, because I didnt think I had the attention span to get through something so amazingly mundane. But I found myself thinking about it after, and consciously tried to slow everything down today, not filling in silences (vocal, or otherwise) just because they were there. Feels good.

The spinning tracking shot around and around the busy cafe, examining it from every angle, is definitely the best shot in Jost's long career. I so love this movie.

I thought it was pretty damn good!

I've also heard that it was pretty crappy so I didn't have any high expectations but it was reallt good!
You should watch it. It is very funny aswell, but defenitly the least good one of the three.

I watched You Don't Know Jack yesterday. Interesting character to say the least. Thought Al did a good job, didn't just mail it in like some of his other recent offerings. Definitely I'm with Jack that euthanasia should be legal

I think that's fair enough. I'm a fan but more in spirit. I like the idea of Abel Ferrara far more than I do his actual films. If he were a band he'd be The Misfits.

This is one damn psychadelic, DISTURBING, SHOCKING, hallucinatory film. It looks JUST LIKE a real snuff film, at times. The effects are GRAPHIC. But what really makes this film shine is the soundtrack. This has been a big inspiration to me and my movies -- you know how my soundtracks are relentless and there's LOTS going in, and every scene has layers and layers of fucked-up sounds? I got that from this film, except this film is ALL "horror movie sounds", there are weird digitized screams in the soundtrack that have nothing to do with what you see on screen. There is all sorts of weird phasing and pitchshifting and overbearing organs and overblown Sunn guitar drone. Just insane. Probably the most disturbing soundtrack ever, I dunno if it's ever been released separately.

This film made me sick to watch -- I dunno if it was more disturbing than the finale of Kichiku Dai Enkai, but AS A WHOLE, it's definitely the most unsettling and depressing film ever.

Made by a guy who only made one film ever, a heroin addict who made the film for drug money, and is the star of the film, and is clearly fucked up out of his mind the whole time. I think he died of a drug overdose many years later, big shock.

Highly reccommended if you like "REAL" horror. Not in my opinion. This is fact: real fucking disturbing horror.






Last House is a great little disturbing gem. But, even though the above story concerning its director "Victor Janos" sounds alluring and perfectly molded to the gritty exploitative vibe of the film, it was actually made by porn director Roger Watkins. All of this is detailed in the excellent book called "Sleazoid Express" by Bill Landis and Michelle Clifford, which is a must-own for any lover of down-n-dirty films. There's even a picture of Watkins taken in 2001 and the detailed history of the film that was restored, lost, cut, lost again, restored from a Spanish print with gore intact then eventually losta again!

Inception

7/10

It certainly didn't suck, but it's easily the most overrated movie of last year. I think everyone was just impressed with the special effects, which were pretty cool (nice MC Escher homage in there), but that's not enough to carry a film once it leaves the big screen. Also, the subplot with Leonardo di Caprio's wife was a bit depressing. Are we really so starved for quality Hollywood films these days that even the most slightly intelligent film gets hailed as a masterpiece?

One last thing: I don't know about you guys, but my dreams are never that literal...
