Yeah, that's great. and another one, like the wicker man, that belongs in that category of the uncategorisable.

one of the things i really enjoyed from the start is that the movie doesn't naturalize things, by this i mean, it shows you this scene and these people who should be completely "normal" but instead of trying to familiarize you with them as an ordinary film would do it shows you what is strange about them and points and things you don't know and changes shots to seemingly unrelated things. it's like the tolstoian ostranenie but in reverse--it shows you the familiar but points towards the unknown. just brilliant.

i've seen the last wave, ages ago, and it's also unusual but in a more predictable way, and i've also seen some of his mainstream films and enjoyed them, but this is totally different from the rest, though maybe i have to rewatch some of the others and see the ones i've missed with the perspective of this one.

It's a while since I saw it so can't recall individual scenes; I just remember an overall atmosphere that really got to me.

so i watched summer of sam for first time in like 15 years because i remembered totally not liking it, or in particular just really not liking John Leguizamo in it, but seeing it again it wasn't entirely terrible and i also didn't know it was a spike lee joint!

See what I mean?
Pretty goddamn good, right? Totally got a shit rap from the press who wanted more McConaughey, more McConaughey! Honestly -- who can blame them? That first season was insanely good.

But it's not fair to the second series, which is its own beast, and deserves to be evaluated on its own merits.

Corking good (sad) last episode!

the second season of td was massively rushed, but yeah its still excellent.

first season is heavily plagiarised from thomas ligotti and falls apart at the end but still v good.

black mirror is back on netflix havent watched it but

just want to point out how over half of the episodes of this show are utter shite. this is the most pompous and overhyped turd of a show ro be revered by idiots in a long time.

in fact there is about 1 good episode which is the talent show one, the rest are pretty much rich white people (played by the right number of rich light brown people) bursting out into spasms of aggressive fury over the existential crisis brought about by their smartphones.

that is LITERALLY what this show is 99% of the time.

this show is literally a rich english person throwing an aggressive temper tantrum because
digital capitalism isn't flattering enough to their narcissism. not quietly of course, but right in someone elses face like it's somehow their fault.

very english.

wish i lived in america and didnt have to deal with this shit.

oh, i didn't read it as satire or parody-- i read it as a straight story, very enthusiastic and imaginative but also very conscious of its sources (kaatu barada nikto, haaa haa haa,) and with a great sense of humor. postmodern if you will, and very funny, but not a mockery like the zucker brothers would make. i can see why he was picked to do spiderman. now i'm a fan and have to look at his other films (darkman, etc.)

the alternate ending shown on the disc was twilight zone hilarious btw.

yesterday watched 2 great films

THE MASQUE OF THE RED DEATH
 

i got this thing for the weekend as b-movie fodder but holy shit it was so good it blew me away. great script, great camera, great performances, wow. then credits roll and i spot nicolas roeg as cinematographer. 2.35:1 aspect ratio in some wonderful looking "colorama". this has to be the best-made low-budget movie ever. corman is great.

CAT PEOPLE (original 1942 version)
 

awesome! so well done. tight, original story, and time flies by in it. gorgeous bluray restoration does justice to the great lighting and camera work-- plus some interesting extras on it. this is like nothing else i've seen in recent times. great job, criterion!

Oh man, that last episode of TD2 stuck with me for weeks. Just ... fucking hell man... that landed. Hit me right in the gut in the way a great film (or show) should. So sad it was almost terrifying.

And not to spoil anything for anyone else, but I just have to mention... that desert scene. DAMN. When they asked for Frank's coat... UFFF.
Like, you just knew what was going to happen.
All he had to do was give up his dignity and all would have (supposedly) been well, but that was never going to happen.

It was great because it made me care... and care deeply... about these more or less despicable people. These two men who were only really "despicable" because they were flawed in the exact ways that the best of men are. Really, they were just people, surviving and living with their choices.

TD2 didn't have an almost morally invincible character like Rustin Cole. Rustin was great in the way Batman is great. He did fucked up things, was achingly human, but was trustworthy to a fault, and almost saint-like in his heroism.

TD2 had no innocents, or casualties of evil made stronger by their pain. The only innocents were the female leads. And they still had their issues, but they were as close to innocent as the show got.

I think that's why the tag line for the show was "you get the life you deserve." In the end, everyone kind of did.

You're criticizing a British show for being British? Also, you seem to either think the creator themselves is the narcissist for spotlighting society's obsession with narcissism, or being pompous enough to criticize their obsession with narcissism. I think much of the series is stating how society is willfully putting themselves out there to the world to be mocked or hated, and then can't take it when they get mocked or hated by the world.

I'm a big Svankmajer fan and this is hands down one of the creepiest films I've ever seen, by him or anyone else. Truly nightmarish.
