Tarkovsky's one of my favorites. I don't think of his films as having a lot of dialogue, though. You know somebody's good when Bergman sees him and immediately says 'I wish I could do that.' My personal favorite's probably The Mirror, but it's almost impossible to go wrong with his filmography. You might want to see The Sacrifice, since he basically uses Bergman's actors, screenwriter, and crew there.

Oldboy is great if you like a good, brutal revenge film. Very few are more thorough.

I wouldn't recommend The Machinist. It seems like a late entry to the 'trauma as an excuse to play with the narrative' film drive, and compares poorly both to other films using similar devices, like Memento or the amazing Lost Highway, and to the director's earlier work (Session 9). On the other hand, the opening sequence is great. But Lynch does the same so much better, starting back in '78 with Eraserhead.

Miike guest-starred in Hostel? Did Eli Roth think that if he kept getting other directors to involve themselves in his project that their talent would rub off? Cabin Fever didn't do anything to make me want to watch Hostel, and now I almost definitely won't see it. I'd rather just watch a Miike.

If you like the dialogue in Clerks, check out some of the early Hal Hartley. People spent about a decade trying to catch up to his sense of humor, and he still manages to be one of the most effortlessly funny guys out there. Not to mention good.

Cube is a good movie. Too bad they made such shitty sequels.

I didn't think that much of The Killing Fields.

I really don't consider movies a waste of time. When they're done well, they're as powerful or more than any other art form; when they're done poorly or made on the production line, they tell us more about ourselves (in a sociological rather than personal/artistic sense) than pretty much any other art form. I wish there were more that were done well, but that's life.

Anybody for Greenaway?

Has anyone seen Hostel yet?....'post to be pretty gory..

I just recently saw Batman Begins...I was pretty impressed with it, especially if you compare it to the older ones.

My all time fave I watched a week ago though is Scent of a Woman. That is a great movie.

I agree. Wonderful films.
Alot of people badmouth Tarantino (sp?) however...he's original.

Stanley Kubrick was genius in my opinion.
2001 Rules
Clockwork too
Shining....brilliant.

Another...
Scarface was amazing and the book is 20 times better....although it's over 1000 pages.

I liked Hypercube,but Cube Zero was shit.

Some of my favorite movies
2001:A Space Odyssey
A Clockwork Orange
Full Metal Jacket
Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas
Requiem For A Dream
Tetsuo
Bullet Ballet
The Lost Highway
Life Of Brian
Fight Club
Battle Royale

I saw Alone In The Dark recently(I think it's based on a video
game) and it sucked(bullets with light in them?WTF?).I also saw
The Jacket which wasn't very
good(kinda like The Butterfly Effect,this "I'll snap my fingers and travel
into time again and again" is very tiring).A greek movie I saw named
"A Dog's Dream" was the lamest David Lynch ripoff I ever saw.

Anyone seen any Tsukamoto films?The guy is one of
the best directors now I think.

how you guys feel about fellini?,i seen a couple of his films and what keeps me watching is how strange it will get, not so much that i even like it, even his earlier works. i have seen satyricon recently and i still dont know what to think

another completely wierd director is Jardowsky<i forget his first name>,my holy mountian,el topo, a couple others whose names escape me. movies so bizzare you cant turn your head, you cant leave the seat. then when its over everyone in the room starts laughing and shaking thier heads, i mean its good, but i cant explain what exactly these movies are about

this stuff is from one of my roomates collection, who really worships these kind of films. hes got the DVDs so i get to watch these movies, including the tarkovsky films, digitally mastered, it makes a world of difference to watch the dvds, especially tarkovsky, whose camerawork is highly regarded

Nope. I've only seen Kill Bill 1, but I really thought it was shoddy. To me all it is is 15% story and 85% filler material, plus the martial arts looked like shit (well, that doesn't really matter since it's bound to in a movie about sword fighting). It's one saving grace is that Uma Therman was pretty damn hot in it.

What's the second one like?

I find myself liking way to many movies. I don`t have a quality standard at all, I like almost every thing I watch, except for a very few. Possessed by the night is one of them

As for movies: Can anyone recommend me fantastic German films? They must not be made IN Germany, but have DIALOGUE in German. I have already seen Das Boot (amazing film).
