I've been a fan since The Host, dipshit.
There's actually no argument here, which is typical.
yeah it's good. i listed it for '97, didn't quite make my top ten but that was an insanely great year in fairness. like bong i recall also using some kind of 'trickle'-esque descriptor because it's relevant to the movie lol. k kurosawa's films don't always have the most coherent writing but he's one of the best modern directors IMO, nobody uses a camera quite the way he does. i like pulse a little more than cure personally but those are his two most acclaimed, along with tokyo sonata which i haven't seen yet.
lot of asian stuff i've never heard of on that list, will have to inch towards that one day.
This sentence is a response to:
Not going to write a diatribe demonstrating the complicated, sophisticated and insanely well executed ways that films like Mother, Memories demonstrate, when you seem to struggle to grasp the difference a film like Zodiac wants to be portrayed versus the former. He cites pacing, and maybe it's more significant as a non-American, since it's unknown how much this crime has permeated his life versus your average American, but I would argue the effectiveness of pacing only supports the film's argument, and Zodiac is not interested in this.
I wonder if this is how most view Memories, or maybe you guys, and that's the issue underlying here.
And my original post was in response to you thinking BJH is so egomaniacal as to be unable to admit the successes of another film, even an imperfect one.
Memories of Murder is a better film than Zodiac; if you go back, I never said nor suggested that it wasn't. My problem with your comment is that you seem to think a director would be incapable of admitting fondness for another director's film even if they secretly believe their own to be superior--especially someone as publicly humble and, by all appearances, intelligent as BJH.
The start of this film is already fucked up.
fuck yeah. there’s nothing else like that shit.
is that really the best pull quote they could find for that poster?
Yeah, the ellipsis really undercuts any authority it might have.
Just me or has Michael Cera disappeared? I feel like I haven't seen in him something for a couple years.
i think he's been doing theatre stuff according to wikipedia.
it doesn't matter given we have jesse eisenberg to fill basically the exact same niche
Oh yeah I could totally see Cera playing young Lex Luthor...
Going to throw this classic on later tonight
Haven't watched Crumb in years. It used to be a staple on IFC back when it actually played independent films. Had a VHS that got a lot of use.
The original quote was probably "A brilliant idea turned into a complete mess of a movie."
Anyways I love that movie, Thewlis' character uses his words like medieval weapons of torture.
one of the most compelling screen bastards ever no doubt.
Ewen Bremner's small role was fookin hilarious too. I feel somewhat robbed over the landlord not being dealt with, not even at least having to endure one of Johnny's verbal assaults.
Watching this for the first time:
Check out this picture of Jess Franco checking out Penelope Cruz in 2009.
Next, watch the far superior Persona. Especially if you like Mulholland Dve.
Wow okay dad.
Don't get me wrong I'm not trashing Vargtimmen, I like it. But Persona is similar but better.
