    In the last thread someone mentioned the Russian film "Come and See." I rented it and was blown away. It's hands down the most powerful war movie I've ever seen.

  • Dancer In The Dark - Lars Von Trier with Bjork starring... one of my fave films.

    Other films:

    Dogville,
    My Neighbor Totoro,
    Open Your Eyes,
    Vanilla Sky,
    Commando,
    Napoleon Dynamite,
    Charade,

    Am??lie,
    Lion King,
    Monsters Inc,
    This Is Spinal Tap,

    I have a similar thing to Netflix called Screenselect in the UK. I sometimes get some series like The Shield, Arrested Development, The Adventures Of Pete & Pete, Freaks And Geeks (Get Get Get, this is my fave TV show ever) etc. They are usually good to get into as you can watch multiple episodes instead of one each week etc and you don't have to lay down cash on series that you might not watch again.

    l'avventura (existential and weird)
    la notte (same)

    american dream (documentary about meatpacking strike)
    assassination of richard nixon (about sean penn losing it and trying to kill nixon)
    valentin (about a little kid in argentina trying to find his parents)
    the phantom of liberty (weird vignettes from bunuel)
    closer (pretty good was expecting it to be total crap)
    in the soup (low budget indie movie about a director trying to make his 500 page script)
    straight no chaser (about thelonius monk losing his marbles)
    battle of algiers (documentary style about the uprising and battle for independence in algeria)
    maria full of grace (about a girl who becomes a drug mule)

    american dream (documentary about meatpacking strike)


    This happened(the P9 Strike against Hormel in Austin, MN) when I was living in Mankato MN, another small burg in southern Minnesota. That strike divided families, took a huge toll on the economy of southern MN and Austin/Albert Lea in particular. That was a very sad time in America, when the Federal gov and Big Corporations began an all-out war on US Labor. Sad to say, Big Bizness is still winning. The struggle continues(just look at the Northwest Airlines Mechanics Strike).

    Dancer In The Dark - Lars Von Trier with Bjork starring... one of my fave films.

    Von Trier is supposed to be one of our national cultural heroes, but I often find him to be unbearably sentimental and his portrayal of women is stoneage and oedipal. "Dancer In The Dark" is very overrated IMO. On top of all the usual Trier quirks, it's just plain boring. I like the older stuff better, like "Riget" (legendary). I did like "Dogville", but I think that's just on the strength of the acting. "Idioterne" was great as well. I haven't seen "Manderlay" yet, but I will soon. He is a weird little man, but I give him big respect for doing his thing and making a serious impact.

    yeah that is one of the best documentaries i've ever seen. the director also did one about striking coal miners which i think was much more brutal than the one in austin. i haven't seen it in a while though. that shit is kind of fucked up the company hormel made 34 million dollars profit and was cutting wages.

    Argentina - director Lucretia Martel

    'La Cienaga' - her debut, stamped her reputation - caustic observation about the bourgeois class in Buenos Aires, reminiscent of Bunuel's social commentary in that respect...

    'The Holy Girl' - have yet to screen it although reviews generally have been positive...

    There are a couple of other Argentinian films I'd recommend, but I suspect they aren't readily available on DVD...

  • *add to favorites.

  • asking so simply for a movie recommendation is as tricky as asking a roomful of movie buffs to recommend "a song" without saying whether you're looking for pop, rock, rap, dub, polka, jazz, or speed metal.

    looking at the long list of recommendations here, i think it's cool that people with a somewhat similar taste in music have a wildly different taste in movies.
