I just watched ‘Au Revoir Les Enfants’. what can anyone really say about a film like that? no more than you can capture the whole of a person with any amount of words. genuinely perfect.


#2127

sometimes a film just cuts clean through the fog of unreality you exist in. I think it’s closer to perfection than any other film I’ve seen.


#2128

Finally got round to Arrival last night, it’s actually really good.

Watched The Fly for the first time. I’m a huge fan of proper body horror and I was watching through my fingertips during the fingernail scene. Loved it.

Only other Cronenberg films I’ve seen before are Dead Ringers and A History of Violence. Going to put in a real shift through his filmography.

The Quiet Earth - Haunting and harrowing last person on the planet sci-fi that sadly descends into silliness in it’s second half. You could tell that both Danny Boyle and Will Forte were influenced by this for sure.


#2131

Overall I’m quite ambivalent to Cronenberg but The Brood often gets overlooked and is really worth your time.


#2132

Watched Prevenge last night.

The ball sack!


#2133

Thanks for the recommendation, will do

Love The Fly. Eastern Promises is worth watching too.

I watched Ghost in the Shell last night. Thought it was crap, aside from the last 10 mins.


#2135

Eastern Promises is so very, very silly.


#2136

Most of his films are though.


#2137

I haven’t seen it but I’m thankful for it, because now when people learn I have a degree in foreign languages they ask me if I’m going to talk to aliens instead of asking if I’m going to become a teacher.


#2138

This one seemed especially silly though.There’s that kid who gets stabbed in the graveyard which literally doesn’t get mentioned again. Also the naked sauna fight.


#2139

i like it though


#2140

Tarantino is making a film about the Sharon Tate/Manson murders so I can imagine thats handled with class and style


#2141

I’d forgotten about that actually…

Eastern Promises was the first film I bought off those guys who used to do the rounds in pubs selling bootleg DVDs.


#2142

Videodrome! Do it!


#2143

Love his early films! Shivers is cool.


#2144

Saw The Sinkholes (no idea what happened), Killer of Sheep (great) and Primal Fear (surprisingly enjoyable)


#2145

This is a really bad DVD cover
