I think Fucking Åmål / Lilya 4-ever are masterpieces. Together / We Are the Best! are p top tier as well. Very excited to revisit them all. I havent seen the other features or shorts included in this set, though I can't imagine them being bad. Looking forward to drinking them up.

Whoever is working these cameras sure likes lateral tracking shots. It can't be jarmusch, it looks too good.

Didn't really care for down by law. It strikes me as basically a worse version of The Defiant Ones, with an extra extraneous character.

I think maybe Jarmusch just doesn't work for me.

And the fork in the road ending was way too obvious. Saw it coming as soon as she started describing it.

Tbh I wonder if it was deliberately JJ's personal take on The Defiant Ones. Once we got into jail, it's the same movie almost beat for beat. :hmm:

Whoa. The cinematographer went on to do Korczak, about the Polish teacher who chose to go to Auschwitz with his students rather than accept the Germans' offer to be "pardoned" because they respected him so much as a teacher.

I'll say this. I'd rather watch Down By Law 100 times than rewatch Ghost Dog once. :run:

Sorry it took me so long, @KneeGar, but it's been hectic. :o

I haven't seen that one, but possibly. What sets Jarmusch apart from others is the style of his form normally not his plots.

I've seen two versions of it (1958 Tony Curtis/Sidney Poitier, 1986 Carl Weathers/Robert Urich), and they were both great.

anyone see the new hulu a24 movie stars at noon yet?

i'm not sure i've ever been made to feel so dumb during a movie before, i understood the basic beats but overall had no fucking clue what was going on. and it absolutely did not need to be over 2 hours.

Yes and I thought it was phenomenal. Not so much a romance but a romance under the circumstances of impending and inevitable doom. Claire Denis really is one of the best.

reviews seem pretty mixed in terms of how it adapted the story. and i'm not mad at the direction at all, maybe the editing? 2 hours 18 minutes when there were tons and tons of scenes of just people walking slowly, or feet..a lot of feet. i know some of it was to make a point, and immerse you in their life. but it started to feel long.

i don't want to get into spoilers here, and maybe its a reflection of me, but i struggled with what was going on at various points. and there were so many plot conveniences.

Criterion popped up a collection of 80s horror, so I watched The Hidden for the 100th or so time. What a great little movie. :bowdown:

I'm pretty much the last person to care about things being true to their source material or reviews in general :o

as for this movie, one of Denis' strongest characteristics has always been 'beautiful bodies in motion' so it's understandble that if the lingering pulse of images which showcase these bodies aren't working for you, you're already at a disadvantage to liking it

i appreciated it in parts. and its not about being true to the source material even. slow burn/tense is one thing, but i felt it could've used some editing down for some of those just laying in the back of the car driving scenes. or ordering drinks even lol. to turn a short 181 page book into 138 minutes, damn.
