    I've always viewed it as a set of four films, not three.

    Might have considered this myself if the final film wasn't so lame with the shitty Ewoks.

    some i didn’t see mentioned:
    the thing, prince of darkness and in the mouth of madness are sometimes classed as the apocalypse trilogy

    i haven’t seen the latest blair witch but i’m a defender of the first two lol

    days of being wild, in the mood for love and 2046 is a trilogy of sorts

    i’m not a big fan of these but there’s van sant’s death trilogy, haneke’s glaciation trilogy, the inarritu trilogy

    some i haven’t seen all of but which interest me:
    kairostami’s koker trilogy
    hartley’s henry fool and long island trilogies
    stillman’s doomed bourgeois in love trilogy
    kaurismaki’s proletariat trilogy
    ray’s apu trilogy
    kobayashi’s human condition trilogy
    ford’s cavalry trilogy
    hou’s coming of age trilogy
    lang’s mabuse trilogy
    maniac cop trilogy
    a moment of romance trilogy
    ozu’s noriko trilogy
    hawks’ rio bravo trilogy
    wenders’ road movie trilogy
    yamada’s samurai trilogy
    bergman’s silence of god trilogy
    the 36th chamber of shaolin trilogy
    kieslowski’s three colors trilogy
    all the von trier ones

    Surprised to see this one. Definitely a cool one, though bit of a quality chasm between the first and the following imo.

    Really need to see 2046.

    Chungking Express is the middle of the "trilogy" bookended Days of Being Wild and 2046 iirc.

    i don't think so. just searched wong trilogy and it's always the three i mentioned, plus 2046 was always considered a loose sequel to in the mood for love more than anything else. most of wong's stuff is pretty tonally and thematically similar though so no doubt you could make all kinds of good trilogies out of his stuff.

    Apparently there is a fourth film to be added to the already 'informal' trilogy called 'Blossoms' of which shooting was supposed to start this year. So I think technically it won't be a trilogy for long.

    @no country for old wainds do you know if Buzzard is part of Potrykus' planned "Y2K trilogy" along with Relaxer? Still haven't seen it so I don't know when it's set, but apparently he's writing his new film which will be part of this trilogy, or something. Did that make any sense? I'm drunk, just finished watching The Alchemist Cookbook which was fucking amazing and some unexpected shit!

    ooo i'm not actually aware he's making a y2k trilogy i don't think, but buzzard is part of a different trilogy, his 'animal' trilogy which also contains ape and coyote (neither of which i've seen).

    hell yeah, the alchemist cookbook rules! i was playing 'don't starve' a lot at the time i saw it and it reminded me of that so much lmao

    Oh okay so that must mean Relaxer is the first in his planned trilogy. Right at the start of this interview he says it's set in 1999 because it's part of the Y2K trilogy.



    Cortez eating the catfood was so fucking funny. Most seem to say Buzzard is his best (you included?) so I'm watching that next very soon. This director rules.

    I strongly disagree. Trivium is an incredible band, even @CiG knows that. He cherishes them behind the curtain. He just hides his love for these innovative Americans.
