last movie watched.

Health insurance rip off lying FDA big bankers buying
Fake computer crashes dining
Cloning while they're multiplying
Fashion shoots with Beck and Hanson
Courtney Love, and Marilyn Manson
You're all fakes
Run to your mansions
Come around

I absolutely loved this damn beautiful movie. Especially its fascination with paintings and commitment to lighting eye-lines.

ya that shot being in the matte painting thread was an inspiration to watch it. it's so impeccably shot and decadent, yet still has a vibrance and liveliness. made me wish scorsese devoted his whole career to period pieces and the king of comedy

Yeah that's sick. Looks kind of similar to Tess although there isn't any matte work as far as I can remember.

the bridge sequence is the most gripping thing I've seen in a movie in a long time. Friedkin probably the greatest nihilist filmmaker of all time.

Watched Age of Innocence right after reading and loving the book. Should probably watch it again now with some more distance.

I haven't seen the age of innocence since it was released 26 years ago (the fuck?) but I remember loving it, specifically the red/yellow dissolves? (this happens, right?) and the erotic charge of michelle pfeiffer's naked wrist

I wrote a high school paper on scorsese which was almost entirely plagiarised from film books I had at home. the age of innocence was the most recent scorsese movie and in my paper I noted that some critics had dubbed it "the ages and ages of innocence" due to its length and my teacher loved that. i also cut out pictures of scorsese from old issues of Premiere magazine and stuck them into the paper, and I titled it, no joke, "Scorsese: A Man". I got an A+ everybody

martin stepped outside...
It felt good to be alone
He wished he was drunk
Thought about something he just filmed
And how kinetic it had looked...
