Like it's absolutely incredibly made but way too bleak, it almost redeems itself and then just plunges even further with 'the sixth day'. (I love Satantango & Werckmeister) I'd love someone to try and convince me this has stuff going for it other than technical skills.

I loved The Turin Horse. There's really no such thing as too bleak
Part of the draw for me

His response was something like "Let me respond with a question: After you saw this movie did you come out of it weaker or stronger?" and the guy said weaker then there was this awkward silence followed by "uhh...I'm sorry"
Moonrise Kingdom - I liked it but I would have never guessed it was 94 min based on how long it felt. Should've ended soon after the kids are first discovered and Bill Murray lifts up the tent. Thought certain actors were underused. Everything with Balaban was golden. Also loved Suzy's brothers and the kitten. Obviously all the quirky details were on point. Felt a little weird how much they played up the sexiness of Suzy (makeup, revealing outfits) considered the actress was 12 at filming. Solid B- overall.

“Technology really looks like a new car. If you want to travel, you have to use your car. From time to time, you get stupid new things in the car. But the car is serving you. You are not the servant of the car. I am not a servant of technology. If it is not working for the humanity and human dignity, my opinion is it is a piece of shit.” -Béla Tarr

It was just restored last year, debuted at Rotterdam. It's a 3.5-hour shot-on-video documentary about a pregnant, drug addicted, and frequently naked 16-year-old. So not really the easiest thing to show.
Andrea Picard had a good piece on it in the last Cinema Scope: http://cinema-scope.com/columns/filmart ... evolution/
this is not a film - fuckin incredible

the thing that really stood out the most was how most of the problems in the future society would be solved by just having paper currency
also im guessing the script was like 20 years old and rewritten a million times cause this future doesnt have cell phones or the internet and the cops dress like the matrix
it was really bad!
