Movie Talk / Re: Respond to the last movie you watched

That is true but you will never be confused about what it happening in the dirt and muck and walk away thinking WTF just happened.

I suppose on the most basic plot level, no. But it still has its share of Lynchian WTF moments that don't really need to be there and lend it a surreal quality. The Sandman scene. The whore climbing on top of the car and dancing. Lots of Frank Booth's scenes, etc.

I like Sholay and think the "Yeh Dosti" number is an axiom of cinema. But, yes, keep trying.

Teproc, my detailed review of Sholay may amuse you.

Seems we saw the same film, but you were much more forgiving. It set back my Bollywood education quite a bit. Took roujin to show me some good films.

2. Mary Poppins
3. Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog
4. Funny Girl
5. The Hunchback of Notre Dame

Score/Soundtrack

Top 5 Lists / Top Five Inscrutable Films
« Last post by oldkid on Today at 06:55:36 PM »
Or, as an alternative title, "Top Five Films Darkening Humor Should Avoid".

You can put on your list your favorite films that are difficult to understand or the five films most baffling.

Favorite Inscrutable Films:
1. The Double Life of Veronique
2. Upstream Color
3. Barton Fink
4. Mulholland Dr.
5. Synecdoche, NY

Most Inscrutable Films, from my perspective:
1. Last Year at Marienbad
2. Anything by Stan Brakhage, but, let's say, Dog Star Man
3. Eraserhead
4. Pi
5. Primer

Honorable mention for both lists: Syndromes of a Century

I enjoyed the Godzilla remake, but I don't plan on watching Skull Island, unless someone gives me a compelling reason to.
