Jimmy Show - Trailer



I was thinking about this movie yesterday and how unfair it is that it only has a 40% on RT yet is so damn good. Prob the best film I've seen on the portrayal of a loser (who isn't psychotic ala Bickle or Pupkin).

60's Commercials



Interesting how the worst aspects of commercialism become sociologically valuable over time.

Rid of Me Trailer HD



I streamed this tonight and it was a pretty good indy, quirky film about the breakup of a marriage, the awkwardness of the lead not fitting in with her husband's friends, and dealing with their meanness. It captured awkward and phony moments well, as in when people are just pretending to like you, forced conversation, etc. Worth the watch.

Best Worst Movie - Official Trailer [HD]



Documentary about Troll 2, also on streaming (NF).

Troll 2 Trailer



A funny bad movie to stream on NF.

High Anxiety Trailer (1978)



A funny Mel Brooks movie I streamed recently on NF.

Drive - Movie Trailer (2011) HD



This is what I would call a 'stylized' thriller. Carey Mulligan is in it and Ryan Gosling (who looks super hot). The story began ok, but then just took a turn for the gore and the story became hollow. The soundtrack, however, is kick-ass. The film has a nice look to it but I don't think all the stylization aided the narrative. Roger gave this 3.5 stars. I'd give this 2. 1 for the story and an extra one for the look/soundtrack.

The Mill and The Cross (2011) Movie Trailer HD



Streaming on NF. This is one of the most visually arresting and beautiful films I've seen. It is inspired by the painter Pieter Bruegel the Elder's 1564 painting The Way to Calvary so the landscapes have a very painterly look to them and there's an interesting narrative. Not very much dialogue, just scenes telling a tale of these people's lives back then. There are some gory moments, but this very well could be a great film. Near-great at its minimum.

Den Brysomme Mannen (The Bothersome Man) - Trailer [english subtitles]



Just watched this very good Norwegian film that reminded me of Welles and also Antonioni with the shots. About a guy who lives in a zombie existence, where everything is pleasant but nothing is passionate. People go on in a robot-like existence. The ending I thought was a cop-out, but definitely worth the watch b/c it has both the dreamlike 'weirdness' that is also grounded in a gruesome reality and is much better than anything by Charlie Kaufman. To me, this seems like the sort of film he wished he could make. A good commentary on philosophical zombies. Also reminded me of Dark City a little. On NF streaming.

HIDDEN LOVE (L'Amour Cache) Theatrical Trailer



Another interesting film on streaming albeit not as deep as Secret Sunshine. Depicts the mother/daughter relationship in a Bergman-like way.

A film available on NF streaming. Great film depicting grief in a realistic manner.

If there is a greater cinematic opening, I don't know of it. I admit I am envious of those who have never watched this, as I would love to see this again for the 1st time.

Sylvia Plath Part 5/11



A funny scene from the cheesy movie Sylvia. Watch the 1st 3 mins or so where Ted screams, "Alright, I fucked her! Holding her ass!"

I get tickled.
