That film has been insanely mis-sold.


#2147

Anyone looking forward to this…


#2148

Is it super paranoid to notice that the two black leads are missing from the cover and the implication that the woman/child on it are his family?


#2149

Not in the slightest. I’d say that’s a very calculated decision tbh.


#2150

The director’s IMDB pic is lovely


#2151

Best stuff is in his early years for me. Dont skip over shivers and rabid, and yeah the brood is amazing.

Corrie had Chesney going to see a Bergman film but he left half way through to go to the chippy (for real)


#2153

I think I enjoyed about 10 minutes of It Comes at Night. When they’re all friends and everything is lovely and perfect and nice. The rest I would say I… appreciated? Sort of. Well directed and excellent performances all round.

I enjoyed about 2h10mins of Spiderman Homecoming. Needed that after. Fluffy. He was good. Iron Man and Happy are fucking dicks.


#2154

I’ll tell you what I did for the first time recently, and what it was I did was watch Casablanca for the first time.

A rare example of a classic film being just as good as everyone says it is. Loved every single second of it.


#2155

There’s someone on DiS who hates Casablanca. Maybe @1101010? Whoever it is they’re an idiot, it;s a perfect film.


#2156

Hahahaha what?

But yeah the word perfect gets thrown about a lot but in this case it’s justified. Everything about it is brilliant.


#2157

I know it won Best Film/Director/Screenplay at the Oscars but was amazed to see Claude Rains didn’t win. He’s probably the best of an amazing cast.


#2158

Ha yeah he’s superb. His character’s superb.


#2159

David Lynch doc
Not an especially good documentary and covers a lot of well-trodden territory but some good lynch anecdotes and has enjoyable bits in it.


#2160

It was louis_taccos.


#2161

Loved it. Saw a really early showing and was glad to go for some lunch and a few beers afterwards as it was a pretty bleak watch. Best thing I’ve seen at the cinema in ages.

@blueturtle I hadn’t seen it compared to The Witch, but it reminded me a bit of the Survivalist, and The Road to a lesser extend. I did prefer it to The Witch though, which I disliked apart from the amazingly monikered Black Philip.


#2162

Finally got round to watching Cobain - Montage of Heck. Better than I expected. Was expecting a few appearances from a few other artists aside from Krist Novoselic and Courtney Love though.


#2163

A lot of classic films are that good though. People just misuse the term classic


#2164

The Beguiled

Very good, easily Sofia Coppola’s best film since Lost in Translation.

Choosing Elle Fanning over Kirsten Dunst? What a wally


#2165

Ape Wars - the first third of the film was absolutely stunning. Practically a silent film with one of the best soundtracks I’ve heard in ages. Rest of it was a bit disappointing but still watchable and fairly gripping. One of the plot points was hilariously similar to Garth Marenghi’s Dark Place so I found it hard to take it seriously.

Overall a very strong trilogy.
