any really good films you think everyone should watch? I'm not good at gore but other than that GO.
Waitress (although that's on Film4 next Sunday)
Scum (although that's on ITV4 every other day)
The Station Agent
Nil by Mouth
Although that's on iPlayer RIGHT NOW. QUICK, GO AND WATCH IT!
And Igby Goes Down <3. And Nausicaa and Princess Mononoke if you like cartoons. And I haven't seen Spirited Away.
In fact, even if it's not, I think everyone should see it, but it might be somewhat difficult for them. And The Life Aquatic is Wes Anderson's best film. Fuck da haterz. And Shaun of the Dead is the funniest film. And I liked Crazy/Beautiful when I saw it 5 years ago. I DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU'VE SEEN.
Sunrise is amazing.
In The Mood For Love
36 Quai des Orfèvres
Women On The Verge Of A Nervous Breakdown
Cleo from 5 to
Gotta see that. Where did you download it from? I downloaded a couple of Italo exploitation films but couldn't find subs anywhere.
Have you seen Greetings? Funny early De Palma film with De Niro.
Are you a fan of The Last Detail?
I watched loads of those films after reading this: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Riders-Raging-Bulls-Peter-Biskind/dp/0747544212/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1274647231&sr=8-1
Recommend it to the OP. And everyone, actually.
...all i wanna do is do it
Crime and Misdemeanors (or a latter-era Woody Allen film of your choice)
Killer of Sheep
35 Shots of Rum
Ali: Fear Eats the Soul
Others are great, esp. 35 Shots of Run.
It might have helped that I saw it on a hot day in a cool cinema, when I was in the mood for it. I can understand watching it on DVD and finding it a little limp.
Claire Denis is fast becoming one of my favourite film-makers though.
