  • touki bouki just got released on dvd. dope senegalese film about youth on the run from the law. kinda like badlands and most godard jammies but set in dakar. i highly recommend it.

    I can't believe you saw that. Great it's out on DVD. I saw it on a preview tape because it played once at a local African cinema festival and I always thought it was very obscure. That's some recommendation!



    I recommended it before and it's not new or something but if you can get The League of Gentlemen maybe you can try an episode. Dark, perverted British comedy with the looks of seventies horror cinema.

  • Rent "The WIre" you will NOT be disappointed....as I have said before the best cops and robbers show ever.

  • If you like Asian Cinema,

    I recently watched Shogun's Samurai and it was bad ass!!!!

    All around flick with action, drama, and SAMURAI! (not a chessy karate flick either)

    One of the better movies that I have seen recently

    great movie. only thing in which gwenyth paltrow has been tolerable.

    I really liked Hard Eight. Philip Baker Hall was excellent in that film.

    - too pretty.

    have only seen him in amores perros - he was good.

    have heard a lot of mixed reviews about this Tambien movie - did you like it?

    Naw... it wasn't BAD. I just didn't really get into it.

    And yeah, definitely too "pretty" but not bad looking, then again not "stunningly beautiful" like the fellas in your avatar.

  • just watched after dark my sweet which is some neo noir. wasn't really feeling it but ebert put it in his great movies column so it might be to some people's taste.

    here are some more movies i've seen recently that i recommend:

    that obscure object of desire (comedy about dude and younger woman who repetedly rejects his sexual advances. done by buneul king of obsurd comedies)
    this man must die (very dark almost comedically dark revenge flick by chabrol who is my favorite new wave director)
    i'm not scared (movie about a kid that finds another kid chained up in a hole)
    assassination of richard nixon (sean penn looses his marbles)
    valentin (kid in argentina trying find parents)
    closer (love triangle shit)
    in the soup (low budget comedy about dude trying to make a movie)

    also some of my favorites you may not have seen

    ghost world
    chinatown
    matewan
    crumb
    network
    run lola run
    paths of glory

  • Saw this amazing docmentary recently called "Children Underground." It follows a crew of homeless kids that live on the streets in Romania. It is difficult to watch at times (very young kids living completely on their own, sniffing paint, fighting, etc.) but I could not turn away.

    Highly recommended (and it is on Netflix, I believe)

    The part where the doctor refuses to help the girl is horrible. I thought the doctor was going through a bit of a struggle - like maybe she wanted to help or felt that she should but felt it was futile and that she would have to answer to a larger system that felt street kids weren't worth it.

  • Just watched Old Boy this weekend.

    Crazy twists and turns. Quite violent which I like but my girlie don't.

    Teeth being pulled out with hammers violent.
