Awesome shit right here, even the Jarmusch parts. I think I'm gonna back off on hating him so much, despite his goofy haircut and dull pacing in his films. I actually did enjoy Stranger Than Paradise and Dead Man, for what it's worth. It's fun to see Buscemi, Thurston, Kern, Lunch, Nick Zedd, and John Waters all in the same doc.

Also really makes me wanna check out Amos Poe and Eric Mitchell films. I had never even heard of them before.

I've not seen any of Amos Poe's films but I think you'd really like Mitchell's Underground USA.

I'd only seen bits and pieces of this before. Great to finally watch this in full; a wonderful introspective look into the craft - which is especially helpful when I'm currently in the process of editing myself. Nice big-name cameos, as well.

Three Colours Red

It seems almost cliched to heap praise on Kieslowski but I really do think this is an out and out masterpiece and, for me, his best film. And definitely one of my favourite climaxes (assuming you've also seen Blue and White) of any film I've seen.

Its been awhile since I've seen the Three Colors Trilogy, I liked it. I wish Kieslowski had a chance to do his Heaven/Hell/Purgatory trilogy. I haven't seen "Hell", did they ever make it? Did they ever make Purgatory?

The Heaven Hell and Purgatory films were written with the intention that other filmmakers would direct them but as far as I know, nobody's made Purgatory yet. I haven't seen Heaven or Hell. Is Heaven any good?

I thought "Heaven" was good. Its directed by Tom Tykwer who directed "Run Lola Run" and "The Princess and the Warrior". I think given his interest in movies about fate and a couple overcoming obstacles to be together, its right up Tykwer's alley.

I love it when Fulci gets all gloomy.

Yeah, 'disquieting' is a good way of describing it. And you're right, the spider scene is from The Beyond. I suppose Fulci's reputation is built on those kinds of outre set-pieces but in retrospect I think they often cheapened a lot of his movies - I love The Beyond but have to admit some of the set-pieces, like the one including the spiders, while a lot of fun, is ultimately a bit silly, really. The only film that they really work in for me is Zombie Flesheaters, which never takes itself too seriously from the beginning.

Ok, I think this is my favorite movie of all time. This goes back to what I was saying a few pages ago about the importance of silence and how it's often underappreciated. The opening scene is my favorite scene ever shot. What it did for me is most likely different from Fellini's intentions, I'm not sure. I got the feeling of being surrounded by the impersonal side of people and the pressures of dealing with them. They poke away at you persistently as you try to escape those pressures... as he is evidently trying to escape from something... which culminates in the iconic scene where the guy on the shore pulls the rope as Mastroianni goes flying down towards the ocean. The entire experience of this film is like a dream, and I'm most captivated by this quality in others like La Dolce Vita (my second favorite of his). It's a movie that remains fresh every time you watch it. There is a lot to take in, and it's always a treat to go into it and notice or look at something in a new way.

10/10, a rare one. Perfect.

unfortunately i must spread more butter, etc. but FUCK YES. on eveyr count.

my favorite moment is when he hides under the table like a little kid.

though maybe i like la dolce vita a little more. or no... asa nisi masa!

i agree with everything you said, its my favorite movie as well. it is also really funny, something that isnt discussed as much. and for me, my favorite is the last scene (and all of the others) i am a big fan of dance and carnival. the last scene of this movie is basically my favorite "thing" ever, as in favorite film scene favorite music favorite imaginary. just perfect.

I've never understood why so many people hate this movie. The jokes are funny, Howard is convincing, the cast is wonderful (Lea Thompson, Jeffrey Jones, and Tim Robbins), the crude 80's CGI is great, and the stop-motion animation towards the end is even more impressive.

Every time I watch this movie, I enjoy it. No matter how old I am. This has the same amount of charm as the first Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle movie, except with a raunchier sense of humor.

9/10

 


My first time seeing it in full. I'm intrigued by Lucas' non-Star Wars related efforts and I've gotta say - I like what I see very much so.

Lucas paints a wonderfully fun portrayal of his beloved decade, and even manages to get great performances out of his cast, which is almost shocking to anyone who has seen any of the more recent Star Wars films (I can't stand Hayden Christensen in anything he's in). In fact, this really reminded me of a Linklater film - except way before Richard's time in the industry. Anyone else feel that? It just feels so free-flowing, without any real central star at all.

I was confused by the ending. Where a few main characters pictures showed up and there was a brief description of what happens to each after the events of the film. Is this based on Lucas' friends and him? I don't quite understand.

Anywho, I'm watching THX 1138 tonight. It looks trippier than hell. I wish Lucas would break through his Star Wars nutshell and make something fresh and original again. His heart obviously isn't anywhere near that franchise anymore.

I've only seen 2 Fellini films. I really liked 8 1/2, and loathed La Dolce Vita. LDV left such a bad taste in my mouth.

Amarcord looks very visually stimulating and queer, I think I'd like that one a lot. Satyricon seems it would bore me.

What exactly is so good about La Dolce Vita? I've never understood it. I hear it praised all the time.

EDIT: serious question

The film is a bit awkward at times, I think it gets better in the second half when things get darker.
