    ITT we will post about movies we have seen recently

    La Caja 507 (Box 507)
    pretty well-made thriller from Spain. good acting, interesting plot. nothing mindblowing, but I enjoyed it. reminded me a bit of "Sexy Beast" both in tone and scenery.

    American Beauty
    I saw this when it first came out in theatres and really enjoyed it, so i was curious to how it held up. I think it does and even lends itself to a bit more introspection when you know how things are gonna end up. sure, there's a couple tacky 'Hollywood' kind of moments, but whatever. I'm not gonna be a snob about it.

    Asphalt Jungle
    Classic film noir that I saw at the Paramount Theatre, a huge art-deco landmark in downtown Oakland. Excellent in every way and apparently just issued on DVD.

    Not one of Herzog/Kinski's finest. I was confused.

    I still haven't seen Woyzeck and there really isn't any reason for it.

    I have 400 Blows to watch later this week. Never seen it.

    400 Blows is an amazing film. I loved it.

    borei kaibyo yashiki - i almost bought this a few times, but nicheflix comes through. what looks like two movies (one black and white, one color) joined together, which i am always very much into. basically about a vengeful cat spirit woman, although the black and white footage depicts more of a strangulating hag ghost. the color stock (set as a flashback during the feudal era) has a jumping, hissing, white haired lady with cat ears. she manipulates people like puppets (only to lure them in and strangle them), can jump around and teleport. and possess.

    there are japanese horror/monster films from the 30s and 40s that i hope aren't lost forever. mia, if you are reading this - do you know anything about this era?

    no reason for having not seen it. I always meant to, but somehow never got around to it. I can't really explain it, but I just feel like I missed my chance and am no longer compelled to try.

    i guess it's decent just to see Kinski with an incredible grief-stricken look on his face as he's forced to leap around and catch cats and get cuckolded, but that's about it.

    yeah, that movie should seriously have been made for Cinemax, not HBO, because it's in their classic only-justified-by-boobs style.

    the lord of the rings: I watched all three over the last three days and came to the conclusion that I would have chopped about an hour each out of the two towers and the return of the king.

    EDITING, PEOPLE
