i actually liked wild at heart-- a lot. probably in spite of, or regardless, of nicolas cage. what i mean is that he didn't bother me in it. it's only after leaving las vegas that i started to say "who the fuck is this clown and what the fuck is he doing in my tv?"

but anyway wild at heart was pretty great, for me-- loved lynch's postmodern take on the wizard of oz. i like this kind of thing much more than his unrelatable weird-ass personal nightmares.

HDS is great for any and all depressing, pathetic, depraved characters

especially in that movie when he's getting loaded with anton newcombe

i just hope no fucking turd decides to go and make and american version like they did w/ the dragon tattoo girl or insomnia. fuckers.

Yes, the US version is god awful, hit-girl or no hit-girl. But the version above is one of my favorite movies ever, irrespective of genre.

And I actually thought the US ...Dragon tattoo was fairly good, if pointless. I am just kind of a sucker for Daniel Craig, and seem to have a thing for David Fincher as well. That's just me though.

This is either a must see or an entire irrelevance, depending on how interested you are in the whole Anna Wintour thing.

Great film.

 


Ended up watching this last night. It looked amazing and the two actors were brilliant, but it was hard for me to get into the story I dunno why. I preferred Happy Together for sure.

Yeah I agree with the humor thing and that deleted scene showed that if done right could've worked helped the film. Again, not a bad film but not a amazing one.

One more thing I would do a hell of a lot to be in a threesome with them two.

murmer/h8kurdt

i think you missed the point of the movie

it's about frustration and wanting what you can never have

it's meant to be endlessly sad

and in that way it's as good as movies get

the director is not some optimistic american who thinks that the good guys win in the end

thank fuck for that

I agree. It's a film I admire a lot but find more difficult to enjoy than most of his other films. Lack of humour isn't a problem it just feels unusually heavy for a Wong Kar Wai movie. I'm a fan of his but think he's much better with more lighthearted stuff like Chung King Express or Fallen Angel.

Does some of my fave endings/credits, too

well yeah it's not everyone's favorite sunday movie-- it's not like you put on kieslowski or michael haneke on for laughs either, do you?

he's a heavy melancholy fucker. maybe i remember chunking express differently but there's the sad cops and a sad maggie cheung. 2046? beautiful movie but won't leave anyone laughing.

Chung King Express does have sad cops etc but I maintain that it has a light centre. That's its genius and Wong Kar Wai seems to be one of the few directors capable of pulling it off. Kieslowski and Haneke can do the in your face miserable thing brilliantly, so it's never a problem. The issue isn't with heavy vs light but that some directors excel in certain areas but not others. Antonioni's no less a director cos he couldn't do slapstick, any more than Mack Sennet shouldn't be criticised cos he couldn't make L'avventura. Xavi's a genius but you wouldn't stick him in goal.

right, but in the mood for love is a fucking fantastic, gorgeous movie that needs nothing except a good screen and an audience.

I thought this movie would be an ass kicking cliche, and that I would walk away satisfied, with my brain completely turned off.
Actually, though, it's nothing of the sort. It is heart breaking and far more layered that it appears to be (probably more than it intends to be even).

Liam Nieson's character curses God in one of the most moving and uncannily true to life movie moments in my recent memory. I've never heard anyone call the almighty a "fraudulent mother-fucker" in such a real and relatable way. It made me tear up a bit, actually.

Public and critical opinion unanimously agrees that it's adrenaline fueled rubbish, which reinforces my theory that most people need more exposure to social and religious philosophy, psychodynamic thought, and the basics of symbolism and allegory.

"Yeah right, wolves don't do that! Bad movie cuz not scientifically or zoologically accurate!!!" shut the fuck up, and go give Avatar 5 stars again, shithead.

Watched this again and liked it even more. It was probably a bit overrated when it came out but the resulting backlash seemed to go way too far in the opposite direction. It's not perfect by any means but it's becoming one of my favourites from the past few years.
