Last night i watched a film called 'Trees Lounge'


#1

Brilliant. Love films about barflies, dunno why. No real story to it, just Buscemi pottering through life.

Great cast. Loads of familiar faces from the Sopranos, Goodfellas, The Wire, Samuel L Jackson’s in it, Chloe Sevigny.

Good soundtrack aswell. Quite a cool Mascis-y outro track.

9/10.

Seen it?


#2

Yup; good, innit?


#3

If I ever get around to re-watching films this will be on the list.


#4

are you planning on watching all of them before you start rewatching some?


#5

Steve Buscemi’s directorial debut. I don’t remember feeling great after watching it but I do remember thinking it was good.

Have you seen Barfly or Factotum? Both adaptations of Charles Bukowski novels.


#6

Great film. Buscemi should direct more films. He does a lot of TV directing these days but it’s been a long time since he’s done a movie.


#7

Watched it with the lads, round Dave’s house, back in the day. Not what was required that night.


#8

That’s a task even I couldn’t complete.

Nah, I just find it difficult to re-watch films unless I’m specifically showing it to someone else. Sat on my lonesome I’d never rewatch a film these day. I genuinely don’t know why.


#9

Not even 20 minutes of Predator?


#10

I’m the same really, it just feels like a “waste” to rewatch something when there’s so many amazing films i haven’t seen yet. It’s a stupid mindset really, as most good films will gain a lot from a second viewing, new layers you didn’t appreciate before.

But still, can’t help how you feel.


#11

Aye good film Samuel L Jackson and Paltrow are in it aye?


#12

Seen it and love it, for the very reasons that you state.

A slacker classic to use Generation X parlance.

Talking of films where nothing happens, have you ever seen Gerry?

I haven’t. Thanks for the recommendations here and above.

Has everyone seen Paterson?


#14

Here’s a question - ever rewatched a film before you’ve watched it?


#15

Literally no need to watch a film more than once


#16

Oh, so that’s what barfly means.


#17

Thread title sounds like a Mark Kozelek track in waiting.


#18

Yeah it’s good this.


#19

No, not even.

Scandalous eh?


#20

Yes, I saw it at the flicks.

I liked it. Driver is good as is his co-star. It’s very slight and it’s got that quirky feel that some will like and others won’t.

I didn’t pay to see it, might not have felt that it was worth £12 or whatever the ticket price was.
