fancy something stylised.. Or stylish.. Dunno
If you can be arsed with subtitles. Sometimes, especially when hungover, I just can't face them.
Have you watched Thirst? My favourite of his
Really enjoyed it at the cinema but not had the chance to give it a second whirl.
Was thinking about that in the shower earlier. Haven't seen it for a while. Might download it.
or, if you've seen (and liked) that, try and track down Attenberg. Saw that last weekend, was excellent.
How about The Station Agent or The Cotton Club? Worth seeing for the extreme hotness of Diane Lane alone.
Breaking Away is a bit of a forgotten classic and needs to be seen by more people.
I really liked this Mike Judge film called Extract but I'm a Jason Bateman fan. If you don't like him, avoid.
-L'important c'est d'aimer - Zulawski film with KLAUS KINSKI and it's massively stylised
-The Red and the White - Hungarian war film, amazing camera work, v little plot, an almost constantly changing cast of characters
-Saragossa Manuscript - great polish film, can't remember the plot really at all. also watch the Hour Glass Sanitorium, which is a massively surreal thing directed by the same guy
-um, maybe also watch The Dreams that Money can Buy - it's directed by Hans Richter and contains segments by Max Ernst, Man Ray Marcel Duchamp and some others. not really sure why I'm recommending this, I remember it being kinda disapointing
Face to Face.
Also how about Kapo, a really good 1959 Holocaust film directed by the guy that made Battle of Algiers (Gillo Pontecorvo)
Il Divo, Consequences of Love, etc.
Hal Hartley is stylised in a different way. Check out Henry Fool. One of the best characters I've seen in ages.
Then there's these which can be loosely described as dramas;
Enter the Void
Confessions of a Dangerous Mind
I found all of them entertaining in one way or another.
if you've not seen it, you will need to immediately see it
