The Strawberry Blonde (1941)- Raoul Walsh
Loved this, Cagney, Hayworth, and De Havilland were a joy to watch.

The Tales Of Hoffman (1951)- Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger
Incredible.

The Train (1964)- John Frankenheimer, Arthur Penn
Really liked this. Lancaster was great as usual, but Jeanne Moreau was the stand out for me.

The Women (1939)- George Cukor
Pure wit and charm, and I loved every minute of it.

The Honeymoon Killers (1970)
Image
Raw, bleak and beautiful. Great chemistry between the leads. Messed up flick

Girlfriends (1978)
Image
Is this still a hidden gem? It definitely shouldn’t be. Hilarious start to finish. Very smart. Very influential. If it were made today it’d be a smash imo.

30 for 30: Silly Little Game (2010)
Image
Fantasy whether or not people playing/watching it like it is one of the driving factors of sports staying relevant. It’s interesting to see the roots of it all. “it started out of desperation and psychosis”. very funny that the creator of the whole thing has never actually won a league.

Adventureland (2009)
Image
If this ends on the hill with them shooting off the fireworks it’s probably up there for my favourite movie. I dunno related a lot to Martin Starr’s character. Being poor and ugly and left while your friends are off to bigger and better things. Great tunes as well.

My Beautiful Laundrette (frears 1985)

Can’t believe it took me this long to watch. Balm as hell. Both leads are extremely hot but holy fuck i’ve always known DDL was a objectively good looking man but he is just suffocatingly beautiful in this, damn

The Favourite (2018) - I enjoyed this for the most part although it kinda drags and then peters out towards the end. Probably my least favorite (no pun intended) of Lanthimos's films I've seen. The acting was great though. I was especially impressed by Emma Stone who I've never been a big fan of. She was really wonderful. Still, it doesn't really cohere enough narratively for me and it's not as entertainingly surreal or surprisingly violent as some of his other work. Feels like it's missing something. It's still pretty good though. 7/10

just outta curiosity, how did you watch it? I'd like to track down a copy


a couple years back there was a torrent shared around here, it had all of the major ghiblis in hi-def. one of the best gifts i ever got from the board... sadly i think the torrent file is probably long gone but perhaps someone else remembers & still has it?

in the past couple of weeks i've seen

the farewell - i talked about it in another thread, but i thought this was fantastic. maybe my movie of the year so far? it struck just the right balance between melancholy and funny, the performances (especially awkwafina's) were great, and i appreciated the way it handled its themes of identity and dislocation (which i related to even though i'm not chinese, but have grandparents living in another country i feel distanced from). i got choked up a few times. 9/10

the last black man in san francisco - also v good, though i think it felt a little bit directionless and overstuffed at times. still, this movie was weird and surreal in subtle but intriguing ways, and i'm glad it exists. the final shot on the boatToggle Spoiler was a real gut punch. 8/10

The Last Black Man in San Francisco

Image

i think the feeling of being phased out, left behind, rootless is pretty universal whether it has to do with your physical home or even a friendship or relationship you're in. a city. a state. a mindset. this film specifies that feeling in such a beautiful, particular and unique way. its colourful when it wants to be, funny when it wants to be, elegiac when it wants to be...mont and jimmie's friendship and intimacy made me feel sad because it's been a long time since i've had such an intimate friendship. i'm not saying the film is like totally devastating or heartbreaking or anything cause its the furthest thing from that. its just really good at being Bittersweet. the feeling of watching the sunset on another day, maybe not knowing where you're gonna be tomorrow, what you're gonna be doing or who you're gonna be doing it with. this is up there when it comes to film of the year.

I watched this last night and was really impressed. I thought both leads were stunningly genuine, definitely a film I wouldn't have tried if not for the board.

Married to the Mob (Demme 1988)

Really fun movie. Stockwell and Isaak make it feel like it's in dialogue with the David Lynch Cinematic Universe. Love that The Pixies get about 14 seconds of this, too. Shocking things:

1) Alec Baldwin only makes it about 20 minutes into this.Toggle Spoiler

2) Demme first used the Q Lazzarus song "Goodbye Horses" here, in the scene above in which a first date is going really well, then recycled it for fucking Image where it's just the creepiest thing you ever heard.

Image
Consenting Adults (Pakula 1992)

So tranched on Letterboxd, failed upon release, and with critics, though of course Ebert got it right off the bat. Might've been too much like Sleeping With the Enemy or something? And yeah 2019 Spacey reality makes it 1000x more creepy but I can't fault the artifact for that. I'll watch Pakula do moody occasionally arch and artful Hitchcock neighbor paranoia all damn day long, even if Kevin Kline is a little bit miscast and the thriller plot is silly and old-fashioned. Lots of mirroring and visual symmetries to shore up the big themes. Considering the violence done to Rebecca Miller's character, and her dual looks, this sort of felt in dialogue with the DLCU as well.
