    Dreams has to be one of my all time favorite films.
    So far this weekend I have watched The passion of the Christ, which I thought was alright, but it's nothing I'll ever watch again. Also another Mel Gibson film, The Patriot.
    As always I watched more cartoons than anything else. Lots of Futurama vol. 4 and a bit of Adult Swim last night.

    My favorite Kurasowa films are the ones with Mifune, except for the Hidden Fortress. Not that Dreams is bad or anything (hell no), I just love the stuff that's more flim noir or like Yojimbo.

    Ran is the one that's based on King Lear right? Great movie!

    Bombay Talkie pretty much sucked, but the included documentary "Helen, queen of the nauch girls" was great.

    That's Throne of Blood.

    Ran has exceptional sound design, but otherwise not nearly as good as Throne...

    The last movies to enter my eyes:

    Decasia (Bill Morrison)
    Solaris (Tarkowsky)
    Spectres of the spectrum (Craig Baldwin)
    Outer Space (Peter Tscherkassky)
    Warnung vor einer heiligen Nutte (Fassbinder)
    Die Marquise von O... (Eric Rohmer)
    Såsom i en spegel aka Through a Glass Darkly (Ingmar Bergman)
    +several others, but those were the good ones...

    I for one am a HUGE fan... I didn't know they were on DVD!! I've been waiting for them to come out for a while.

    A Jew in Alaska, who'd've thunk it?!?

    Ah, I didn't know Throne was based on Macbeth! I'll have to see that one. I was trying to find Yojimbo the other day but I couldn't.

    I think the copies of Northern Exposure I rented via Nicheflix were R2 fwiw, but I believe R1 versions just came out as well.

    um.. i watched strange brew again last night.

    and master and commander, which was ok - and secret window which was sort of interesting for half an hour and then really predictable. at least those were borrowed from family & i didn't pay for them.

    we need a better video store here.
