syfy already did a Dune mini-series, witha very limited special fx budget. Not too good. I like the insane archaicness of the movie.

the other movie i've known him for is "jamón jamón" which i also liked but hasn't stuck in my psyche the same as "la teta y la luna" did. i still have to see "huevos de oro". his older stuff is hard to find! (legally anyway).

thanks for the medem recommendations. i did like "el sexo y lucía" but never followed through with the rest-- i'll check them out (if i can-- "vacas" seems out of print)

Sex & Lucia used to be my wife's favorite movie. she'd watch it all the time, then she finally goaded me into watching it with her (we did a film swap. she watched Glengarry Glenross, whcih she hated because she cannot stand to see older men humiliated) and we watched Sex & Lucia and I misunderstood the entire thing, and she said I ruined it for her.

I found it a very boring movie where about 20 minutes worht of plot happens in an hour and a half.

yes, lynch did great w/ the set designs etc. i always figured herbert was talking in code about ey-rabs in dune (w/ the spice being oil). then again he smoked some fantastic hawaiian weed.

i don't remember much about it to be honest but i remember liking it (netflix also keeps track of my likes/dislikes ha ha). glengarry glenross is fucking awesome though! david mamet can be great. have you seen "house of games"? also written by him-- similar kind of theatrical dialogue. it's pretty fucking great.

Yes. I dig Mamet. Movies are either one of two things ussually. People talking or people doin stuff. I love hearing mamet's characters talk. Scorcese can di good talk too. The best parts of goodfellas are the characters just talking, like when they go to Pesci's character's ma's place and eat spaghetti.

I hate movies where neither happens. This is what I felt about sexo y lucia

I surprisingly watched Gravity last night.. I say surprisingly because I had no business watching it when it came out a year ago. I mean, really, the premise is almost worse than Snakes On A Plane! Most of the movie is just people floating around in space? I mean, its a great plot on paper but to watch for over an hour?? Also I really don't like movies that are 91% (literally!!) CGI graphics but this one wasn't all that terrible. Yet I found myself really really liking this one. Also, nobody told me it was an existentialist morality play?? I would have possibly been more sold on checking it out but all the shit I read and heard suggested it was just another sci-fi blockbuster and I haven't like a sci-fi blockbuster in several years, Hollywood puts out such crap its possibly the only thing worse than commercial radio music.

Thank God. I loved that movie but kept hearing people say how much they hated it, to the extent I really started questioning myself about it.

fuck no, it was pretty fucking great, i watched it on your recommendation and loved it in spite of the "star-studded cast". sure, some shit a bit preposterous, but what movie isn't? just the other day was watching something (justified, i think it was) where "ducking" would magically save people from bullets for fucks sakes. i find the satellite debris much more compelling though escaping it unscathed would have been as unlikely--suspension of disbelief makes fiction possible and i like fiction.

of course for someone like me it would have been better marketed as "by the director of y tu mamá también and children of men" but that's just me being a fucking snob.

It's been that long since I saw it I can't remember the soundtrack but after reading this snippet I found I guess it's time to delve right in.

"As for the soundtrack CD, get it if you like the movie or if you want a good, creepy soundscape for a Halloween party or freaking out your annoying girlfriend. It evokes a mood more than a specific film, and that's okay; it just isn't for everyone."

how in the utter name of fuck is it an existential morality play?

not being a dick here i'm just baffled to hear you say this.

i think it's actually one of the most utterly disturbing films of all time. the protagonist is lost in space, hallucinating that a corpse is still alive, trying to guide her back to earth. it's a fucking nightmare. it's just pure delusion, and then she ends up back on earth, sentenced to the dire fate of parenthood.

if this is the human condition in 2014, and the only hope we have is crashing back to earth as we desperately follow the signals of a now dead paternalism, which is the only thing, apart from our own debris, that has a hope of "saving" us, then - fuck.

Gravity must be a better film than I realized.

I liked it a lot as a thriller. It scared the hell out of me and I was emotionally drained by the credits, but also satisfied with my movie-going experience.

But I didn't look for or become aware of any deeper meaning. It's really cool that others have. To me, the best films work that way: something for everyone, the thinkers as well as the "just entertain me" crowd.

I never read any greater meaning into it either. I found the last quarter of the movie very moving but I'm not sure that I took any deep message from it.

I love how divisive Mamet is.

"People don't talk that way," is the most frequent criticism thrown at him, to which I say, "Yeah, too bad for people." Why blame a writer for not being as boring as the average person?

How was it an existentialist morality play? The fucking film was.about how.sandra.bullocks.cjaracter was paralyzed in her life with grief over losing her daughter, she is A FUCKING ASTRONAUT IN SPACE and yet only the.free spirited Clooney is ever enjoying the view? He has to talk her through it, her epiphany is that her life was worth moving on and fighting for.. also did you notice almost miraculously everything kept going just right? She makes it to space station just on time, then the station catches on fire forcing her to the escape pod just in time to escape the debris.destroying it.. oh yeah, she randomly brings the fire.extinguisher to the chinese station and only has it because of the fire.. then uses that extinguisher to propel herself to the last station? All those sequences were.about how everything in our lives adds up, how is that NOT existentialism? Notice I didnt say rreligious..
