Good enough for me! Ill swerve it


#2947

Agree with Lo-Pan. All I can remember of it from the cinema is that it went on for bloody ages and that I missed my last train.


#2948

It’s good but very long and somewhat bizarrely the DVD set tells you to put in the 2nd disk halfway through a scene.


#2949

I watched The Passenger which I loved really. It is slow but its not unnecessarily so

These Final Hours which I alao really enjoyed. Bit of a sucker for end of the world stuff


#2950

I watched it recently when I had a Friday night to myself. I think it’s worth seeing, personally.

Watched all 269 minutes and ate a whole chicken from Chicken Shop.


#2951

its the length that puts me off! Im gonna slog through this 4 hour one on Mubi fiorst then consider it


#2952

The Passenger is ok, some great sequences. but I think it pales in comparison to his Italian work I think.


#2953

Oh yeah i agree but all Id heard a lot of negativity and enjoyed it more than I thought


#2954

Hope this is good, Linklater has been on a roll over the last few years


#2955

did you not see Everybody Wants Some?


#2956

I did, thought it was fantastic


#2957

You’ve just reminded me that Boyhood exists and that I watched it, you fucking prick


#2958

One of the best films of the decade so far


#2959

Moderately interesting concept ruined by being excruciatingly dull and having one of the least likeable leads in anything ever


#2960

But enough about your weekend!


#2961

Riding bikes with people from community.drownedinsound.com is absolutely not an interesting concept


#2962

Oof


#2963

I’m on kiyone’s side here. Loved it.


#2964

Not seen it. But as long as we’re all in complete agreement that boyhood’s shit then that’s fine

Quest

Made my first trip to Peckhamplex last night (love it) to see this, a really great doc that starts out as being about a recording studio in suburban Philadelphia but then a major event happens to the gentleman that runs it and his family that turns it into a very different film indeed.

Interesting that Boyhood is just being discussed above as this spans over 8 years (the entirety of Obama’s presidency) and follows the family through many obstacles in their lives. The director gives its subject plenty of room to breathe and that is returned with the family being very generous with what they allow to be filmed and how much their lay their hearts on their sleeves. Think it only has a limited release but will hopefully get a wider audience at home because its really really great (and miles better than Boyhood).
