I enjoyed Control. It got mixed reviews but you shouldn't let that stop you from watching it. I thought it was really well done and I'm a huge Joy Division fan, still need to see that documentary though heard it was really good.

city of god is easily the best movie int he last decade. i still need to see slumdog millionaire.

lately ive been watching crime dramas/film noir. in the more modern twist of things, LA Confidential has been my JAM. its a little unsung, in my opinion. brian will crucify me, but its better than training day when we are talking corrupt cops.

as far as film noir is concerned, its been all about double idemnity, and im about to fuck with strangers on a train for the first time in about ten years.

i did watch conan the barbarian the other night, but whatever. im gonna re-watch "viridiana" sometime soon when i have the time...excellent/controversal satire of franco-spain and classism. perfect dark comedy for sure. citerions dvd looks pretty damn great..

I'm going to start working through the series on Netflix, too. I only have Season 1 on dvd. I've probably seen most of the series on tv, but all out of order. Currently on season 2, episode 5.

Handling the Undead and Paper Walls is really good too. They're harder to get in the US though. Lindqvist is one of my favorite scandinavian authors.

also, from wikipedia: "An English-language film adaptation, to be directed by Matt Reeves, is scheduled for release in 2010."

It broke my heart a bit when I learned that not too long ago. Maybe it'll be good in it's own way.

i have never watched a whole programme of his before. he is probably the most irritating man i've ever seen. so smarmy and wrong. actually worse than bill o'reilly, which is incredible.

I'm going to order this online soon, looks like an absolutely fascinating film. It's 7 1/2 hours, so I'd probably watch it in three different segments.



This scene is so simplistic, yet mindblowing and gorgeously shot. I was basically in a trance the first time watched this clip.

Film by Bela Tarr, called Satantango.

"Sátántangó (English: Satan's Tango) is a film directed by Hungarian filmmaker Béla Tarr. Shot in black-and-white, completed in 1994, it runs an epic 7 hours and 12 minutes. It is based on the novel Sátántangó by Hungarian novelist László Krasznahorkai, who has been providing Tarr with stories since his 1988 film Kárhozat (Damnation, 1988).

The film has developed a cult following. In part due to its artistry and length, but also because for a long time it was unavailable on DVD (only bootlegs transferred from old VHS sources were available.) The film is now available in a new digital transfer supervised by Bela Tarr himself. Much of its reputation today has spread among film enthusiasts thanks to the word-of-mouth on the Internet. The film was praised by many critics who considered it a crack in the face to the 90s "friendly foreign" film.

The late novelist and filmmaker Susan Sontag described Sátántangó as "Devastating, enthralling for every minute of its seven hours. I'd be glad to see it every year for the rest of my life." The film has been the subject of controversy. The film has a sequence in which a child tortures and poisons her cat. This led to some difficulties in getting the film shown in the UK because of legislation protecting animals from cruelty, and the British Board of Film Censors refusing to certify such films. Tarr has insisted that there was a veterinarian on the set at all times, and that the cat was under the vet's supervision. Tarr has also said that the cat is now his pet.

The film was briefly out on VHS and DVD in the 1990s, but went out of print very quickly, but is now available on DVD. It is infrequently shown due to its lengthy running time. It is sometimes shown in two parts, or in its entirety with two intermissions. Tarr has said the film should be shown without any interruption, but this is usually difficult to do given the restrictions of both film and video projection. It is considered a masterpiece by critics, and people who have seen it are usually astonished by its ambition, its artistry, and its uncompromising vision. Considering Satantango's status as a cult film similar to Rainer Werner Fassbinder's Berlin Alexanderplatz, the new DVD release was eagerly anticipated."

I'm halfway through Dead Snow. It's awesome. Alot of lines that are directly meant for horror geeks.

Delicatessen and Deadgirl are just what's next for me. I've heard good things about Delicatessen and mixed about Deadgirl. Will be watching via Netflix, so if they both suck...who cares?
