I only really liked Cronenberg when he was making his low budget horror movies. I haven't seen a lot of his more recent stuff but if you're saying Cosmopolis is an improvement on those, I'll definitely steer clear.

as a result of this thread i was trying to remember if i ever saw casino royale and i went to my netflix account and saw i had given it 2 stars (out of 5). all i recall is a lot of running and ultraviolence. explosions. bla bla. so i don't expect much from the sequels.

I'm pretty sure it was released this year. I know for sure that it wasn't shown in the states until August (just a few months ago). I managed to find a place here.

It's based on the novel of the same name. I recommend it but I'm not sure if it would be your thing.

I've always had problems with Don De Lillo's dialogue but on the written page it feels more acceptable than when it's actually spoken in a film. Robert Pattinson especially is just not good enough an actor to pull it off. For a billionaire wizzkid genius he seems nothing more than baffled by the things he's saying (and I refuse to buy into any 'but that's intentional' arguments). Things only improve (slightly) towards the end, when Paul Giamatti turns up. Otherwise, and I usually hate this term, it all comes across as being a bit pseudo intellectual.

The Master

Honestly I thought it was brilliant. Both Phoenix and Hoffman were just incredible and deserve every award they can get.
Two scenes stand out for me. The 'interrogation' scene where Phoenix is told not to blink and also the prison scene. For the both of them I could feel myself getting more and more drawn into the film.

The Colour of Money

Absolutely love this. I'm wondering if it might be Scorsese's most underrated film.

I know you mentioned that you refuse to "buy" the character's uncertainty, indecisiveness, confusion, turmoil etc. as intentional, but it really seemed that way to me from what I remember. That was the whole point of his strong urge to get that haircut at that particular barber shop. He had no idea what was going on and wanted to avoid everything by clinging to something more concrete or simple or whatever. I totally get what you're saying and I understand why people wouldn't enjoy themselves. I stand by what I said though. I thought it was one of Cronenberg's more interesting films in a while. It's thought provoking and dark as hell. I mean, I remember feeling a bit more depressed walking out of it than the moment I had arrived (the downside). But I was just hooked to it the whole time and the scene with Giamatti was wonderful as you said. It's a daring film and in some ways reminds me of Crash (possibly due to the sexual scenes that took place inside of the limo). I just generally picked up these sexual undertones while the camera would sort of scrutinize all the cameras and different functions of the limousine. I don't know if that was intentional or if it was merely my sick mind making it out to be that way. I enjoy reading your thoughts on just about anything here.

I haven't seen that Scorsese film.

Honestly, you should check out The Colour of Money. It'd make a fantastic double bill with Hard Eight. They're uncannily alike except that instead of John C. Reilly you get the far less sympathetic, far more in your face Tom Cruise, and Paul Newman plays a great 'Sydney' kind of character. Seriously, give it a try. I'd be really surprised if you don't end up liking it.

Regarding Cosmopolis, I dunno, I'm just not a fan of Cronenberg, I guess. His films always seem really cold to me. In that sense, he sort of reminds me of Kubrick, except Cronenberg doesn't even have Kubrick's visual flair.

Anyway, just watched ...

The Town

I didn't have any big expectations with this but ended up really liking it. It's all pretty obvious but done very well. Although any film with this kind of storyline would have to be atrocious for me not to at least quite like it.

Body Double


One of those comfort films. I know it has some flaws but I can watch it a million times. And the music is excellent.
