I've only seen Royal Tenenbaums which just completely left me cold. I didn't hate it, just, as you say, didn't get it.

Crazy Heart

I like pretty much everything about this movie but can't help feeling that The Wrestler did the whole thing a lot better.

Wrestler was great.

I love all wes anderson films. They are good stuff.

Lost in Translation was made by Sofia Coppola, who only knows super rich super powerful people and their problems.

Dude, maybe we didn't watch the same movie, because you're describing George Clooney's Up in the Air more so Lost In Translation. Bob (Bill Murray's character) came across as shattered and defeated like the dude in American Beauty. He seemed somber, bored, regretful. His fling seemed both exciting and yet depressing, because it points to how ephemeral our human relationships can be. They can fill us up with joy, but this is temporal.

As to Moonrise Kingdom, I'm more in love with upon reflection. Its like, all the childish absurdities and biting dead-panning in Wes Anderson movies suddenly make so much more sense when acted through middle-school aged actors!! I hope he continues to make these kinds of movies, I dare say it will work better than any Wilson brother ever could! Whenever I watch his movies, like Tennenbaums or Darjeeling Limited the characters come across as blatantly childish in their behavior, and the trademark dead-panning only seems to solidify this effect. When you see this same kind of acting and writing but played through kids, suddenly it seems so much more apt.

not a big fan of Wes. you know the part in Tenenbaums where Hackman and Stiller are in the closet with all those board games? it's oddly familar to me like my grandfathers house. his shit can be too nostalgic and 60's, 70's New England rich for me, but hey i was also some 13 yr old relaxing to Stones records in my attic once. prepping for Brown Uni.

Nostalgia is very much a part of Wes Anderson flicks, its why my pops especially enjoyed Moonrise Kingdom because essentially that was his life (not literally the plot, but the setting). Also Tennenbaums was satire of rich, the rest of his flicks aren't just about rich people, though I agree, they're not often poor.

Haha, you're obviously right. I suppose I just see Bill Murray's character as someone whose problems are those a lot of us wouldn't mind having, in place of those that we do have. At least he has the money to help him change if he wants to.

Sure. So he can leave his job and he'd have his freedom and probably enough money to live quite comfortably for the rest of his days. I'm not saying I envy the guy but in the big scheme of things he ranks pretty low on my list of people in movies that I feel sorry for.

I'm planning on watching Only God Forgives because the coolest actor in the world, Ryan Gosling, is in it and it's directed by the same guy who directed the superb Drive.

i'm trying to finish watching amos poe's "unmade beds" but it's the most boring, pretentious, humorless piece of shit student film i've watched in centuries. i mean, no, okay, for a student film, whatever, alright, but why this gets hailed as anything other than that, is the hype machinery of the new york underground like that great propaganda piece that is "blank city" (good movie, but damn, it lies).

yes, some good things came out of this era i suppose (jim jarmusch), but this isn't one of them. ugh! the director likes to enumerate books and show what a smart boy he is. also this whole "french" movie could have been funny instead of--ogh. i've put it at double speed now so it ends already. quel fucking dull!

edit: looks like they run out of film near the end and now it's a bunch of stills.

please kill me.



 


--

edit: it's finished! at last! worst movie dialogue ever!

the music w/ the end credits is pretty good actually

"fin". LOL.

Haha! In many ways it is. Lots of connections with the big galleries, etc, and a massively sycophantic international following. I haven't seen Unmade Beds but have sat through plenty of other NY Underground 'classics' that fit the description you give to a t - even though I'd still consider myself a big fan overall.

Curious to know what the supposed 'lies' in Blank City were, though.

the general notion that this was a momentous time overflowing with genius

maybe elsewhere!

(e.g., at around this same time, charles burnett was making "killer of sheep" with similar means, for fucks sakes)

The Canyons

DIR: Paul Schrader
WRITER: Bret Easton Ellis
CAST: Lindsey Lohan, porn star James Deen

Shot in three weeks for $250,000

Not total shit, but mostly shit. I blame the direction and script, actually, because Lohan is quite good and Deen does malevolence rather well.

And the sex scene is too weird to be erotic. Some nice big tits, though. And penis, too. I'm all for more penis in movies, if only for the sake of equality.

Fascinating article on the drama behind the making the film:

what ive watched recently:

detention - 8/10 - only "happy" movie that hasnt pissed me off in years.

rules of attraction - 9/10 - yep

the act of killing - 10/10? surely one of the greatest documentaries ever made. didnt find it shocking or surprising or ethically harrowing like everyone else did, which either means i really am one of the few with any real understanding of our ethically compromised culture or just a total fucking sociopath

world war z - 4/10 whatever - liked the jew wallocaust

the canyons - 8/10 - its not amazing in some respects but it still captures the present era perfectly and will probably age well
