+1 I quite like Dick, too. I recently viewed Blade Runner again, and it never grows tired. Confessions was one of his non-science fiction works, a very funny novel -in a tragic way-which I enjoyed. I heard they were adapting it to film back in the 90s, but I've yet to see it. I believe its called Confessions d'un Barjo and heard they shifted the story line to modern France, as I recall. Almost forgot all about it until surfing this thread: I'll have to check it out; thanks for reminding me! Wonderful collection of films being discussed here. Many great candidates for watching again, and a few listed here which sound quite good actually and which I'll have to check out also. Cheers EDIT: that's very funny, chakmak. I'm of course referring to Philip K. Dick, the novelist, silly, whose works folks can read more about here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philip_K._Dick
and agree, Biggskip; nice add on the music angle, which is so oft forgotten yet adds so much to a film! I like a lot of works you mention as well, dwyhajlo: some I'm not familiar with but enjoy many of the same directors so will have to check some of those others out - thanks!
