The Brood.

I don't know what it is, but it took me till now to realize that The Brood is one of my favorites out of Cronenberg's filmography. I don't think I ever got around to responding to your post demonrail (sorry, been busy) but I understand completely about you finding his work to be cold and whatnot. I'm just not sure if he's truly a great director or anything. I find the themes he explores fascinating... especially with something like The Brood. He does a solid job when he's illustrating some type of illness that emanates almost unwittingly from the person's body. I thought the special effects were usually impressive in his films and the womb that was attached to the woman's body towards the end of The Brood (I believe this was done through the "psychoplasmics" mumbo jumbo that the film deals with) looked genuinely disgusting and real. Well, her biting into it and licking the fetus was the part that was a little gross. But anyways, nice little movie. I wouldn't say it's that special but one I wouldn't mind watching again (keep in mind that I had already seen it numerous times. I'm not sure why but it grew on me a little more with each viewing).

And obviously he has changed now compared to what he was doing in the 80's. I think Cosmopolis certainly distances the viewer. I find that Cronenberg has something in common with Stanley Kubrick in that they either glorify violence or simply aren't aware that their films seem to do so. A Clockwork Orange indisputably does so, despite being a film I admire for many reasons. Apparently, Anthony Burgess was given a special invitation to see the film and he walked out! apparently he said it missed the point of his novel. I suppose it depends on how sensitive one is. I understand it was a controversial film at the time and I think even today seems like something out of this world. It still looks as though it's from the future. That's what makes it brilliant to me. But I find that from a human level, these two directors may just lack the ability to pull every character together if that makes sense. They seem to get carried away in that world or something. I'd have to watch Cosmopolis again to get a better grasp though.

Taking of Pelham One, Two Three

Good low-key heist movie that was an influence on Reservoir Dogs. Curious to see the remake.

Still not quite sure what to make of this. One of the more interesting "newer" films I've seen. I was tired though and need to watch it again.


 


I admired the dreary landscapes and whatnot, but I found this to be a bit dull. The opening scene and the use of fog were the highlights for me. I honestly thought the acting was poor and overall I'm just not that crazy about Orson Welles. I know I'm being a little harsh, because this still isn't a terrible movie by any means necessary. I've noticed that lately I haven't been in the best of moods to watch movies. Also, if I want a film adaptation of Macbeth I'd rather watch the superior "Throne of Blood".

I love the Welles version. If I recall correctly from my AP lit class in high school. I was unnerved and transfixed by it, and it helped me finally develop a genuine interest in Shakespeare.

i tried watching this


 


it's supposed to be a great movie. i was supposed to love it. i got bored shitless and ended it with 1 hour to go (it's very fucking long). it's not that it was a "bad" movie but the winter is a bitchmother season and this movie is too much fucking misery to bear. i mean, iran looks like such a shit country to live in, i'd probably kill myself if i lived there, and i've seen enough iranian movies about miserable iranians and their nutty religious laws to last me a lifetime. but yeah it's supposed to be great etc. just oo much of a downer.

Panic in Needle Park

This one's highly recommended to anyone into the whole lowlife 70s NY thing.

I've watched Victor Erice's ''The Spirit of the Beehive''. It was wonderful.

Pacino hadn't really come into his own as an actor yet in Panic in Needle Part. Its ok though.

Watched Tinker Taylor Soldier Spy for the 2nd time. It was great the second go around. One if the best casts in any film of the last few years.

I'm starting to dig into the Qatsi Trilogy by Godfrey Reggio. And man this is profound stuff.

First one I saw was Koyaanisqatsi... I believe this to be the first of the set of films. Not sure if it's vital what order you watch them in anyways. This film here has altered the way I look at film in general. This film is devoid of characters, plot, dialogue etc. It is merely a collection of images and music. The soundtrack is brilliant... ghostly, dreamlike. The images are mostly of natural settings around the world. Slow motion techniques follow clouds, mountains, waterfalls.. just captivating and moving images. It sort of gives the eye a more detailed look... sort of magnified view of the world around us.. if that makes sense. This is easily one of the best films I've seen in who knows how long. It's very inspiring to me.

So... I'm looking forward to the next two.

not to be a spoiler, but it's not quite the same.
i've always felt the 3rd one was some american army brain washing propaganda.

It's not a great film but I do love Pacino in it. Although whenever I see him in anything I'm always aware that he's always teetering on the brink of unwatchable. That may be why I like him so much. That tension from knowing this could all go horribly wrong but never quite does.

And on that topic, just watched

 


Frankie and Johnny

This is a good test film for anyone undecided on where they stand regarding Pacino. The film itself is decent enough and seems to get better as it goes along but really, it's all about Pacino being Pacino for two hours. I have no problem with that personally but I can definitely see why some people would.
