The first time I watched Dead Man, the only thing I really heard about it was that it was a rad postmodern Western. When I was watching it, I was like "this is pretty cool but it's a bit too post-modern and I don't really understand, I guess I'll just keep watching though"

Turns out the video just wasn't playing correctly so for half an hour I had been watching a movie that cut to random scenes (but in some semblance of a story) as well as audio going in and out of sync. I thought it was just Jarmusch being Jarmusch. Kept it simple and watched Mulan instead

Only kind of related, but this reminds me of when I first downloaded and watched Babel, and none of the non-english parts had subtitles, and I just assumed "oh, Tower of Babel, language, I get it." Yeah, that movie definitely was supposed to have subtitles shog[1].gif

I once dropped acid and saw the most amazing movie, but later they told me I was just looking at the wall, and furthermore, it wasn't even turned on. shog[1].gif

Lots of big names and great films left out obviously. Not a lot going on in the 80s so it's clear I forgot some major stuff.


Everything up to La Haine is absolute must-see status I'd say.

I do not see The Moustache or Jeux d'enfants ... plain.gif

Sipang, is Audiard a big deal over there? I am obsessed with Read My Lips. I don't know anyone else who is. Possibly they are all in France... ?

Is The Mustache the film with Vincent Lindon ? Haven't seen that one. You can't be serious about Jeux D'Enfants.


Jacques Audiard is a big deal, he's pretty much the only hope of mainstream French cinema. He's the son of Michel Audiard, superfamous screenwriter and dialoguist behind some of the most popular films of the 60s/70s/early 80s (many of the Belmondo films of that time). He also wears cool hats.

I accept this answer!

Dont judge me on the Jeux...I maintain it's a good film...I remain stirred by Cotillard, in ways the overhyped Inception can't touch!....sure, it has its flaws, but -- oh dear -- Marion Cotillard. (I also don't speak French, which I think, for many non-speakers, might wipe away a lot of flaws from visually appealing films).

Yeah, The Moustache stars a Vincent, I'm pretty sure. I liked the book a lot, so I could be biased, but I see rotten tomatoes gave it a stellar score, so ... great premise, uneasy feels, good movie.
