What's the most powerful movie you've ever seen? - Page 12

post #166 of 219
The most powerful I have seen in the last 12 months is: The Road

I never saw that. I figured a film version of the novel would at best be redundant, and at worst be heretically shallow.

I own the book and bluray version of The Road. Just don't have any interest in either. I'll give the book a shot this month and see if the movie would be worth it.

Thiumph of the willes by anne riefhenstal , oh yeah powerful images. Perhaps on a cinema the images of the skylines on fire of Blade Runner really impressed me with the great Vangelis movie and the final Nexus 9 speech . Tears in the rain... The final image of the black and white original movie Blackout ( or was fallout ? ) The one of the atomic bomb and the bombardier. The shining ; blood images and the two sisters , the maze sequence.

Classic, agree 100%

Also for me:
  • The Road (left me feeling yucky and somewhat disturbed for days)
  • Forrest Gump (inspiring movie)
  • American Beauty (simply stunning, left its mark on me)

In the late 60´s this guy stefan Jarl did a documentary about two 18ish guys, Kenta Gustafsson and Stoffe and their friends. These kids had run away, and where "living" life, sleeping on peoples couches, drinking beer and not caring about anything then having fun for the moment. Ten year later he does a follow up documentary about them, and their really trashed up. In the second movie Stoffe dies from heroin in the toilet at the Stockholm Subway central station. Kenta lived to be a cult folkartist, even though he was a alcoholic the rest of his live. He died a few years ago from it. They did a third and last film in the eighties about their kids and their upbringing. By far the best documentary i´ve seen. They use to show this films in school as a no no to drugs. The part in the second movie when kenta gets the call that Stoffe OD:ed.. So hard to see. The series is called "Dom kallar oss mods" (They call us misfits) Heres the intro to the first one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SFCy2...eature=related

Some of Micheal Mann's films are my favorites. That said, Last of the Mohicans, IMHO is far from classic and seems to get worse as it ages. 1/2 of the main characters are cliches while also being wholly implausible in their behavior, the action is essentially done in a toned down less absurd Miami Vice-style which feels horribly antiquated, and the plot manages to be convoluted by all the wrong things. That said, that final scene where the majority of the sound is removed and the score takes over is incredible. It's probably the films one redeeming scene. The closest Mann's come to classics are Heat and The Insider.
