    I think Small Time Crooks was maybe the best of that run of films. I didn't want to walk out of Curse or Hollywood, but I was disappointed.

    I forgot about Small Time Crooks; charming movie and Tracey Ullman was great.

    I also want to see Brick.

    Also: Good Omens which Terry Gilliam wants to make, but I hear he can't get funding for it.

    Did you see "Adventures of Baron Munchausen"? I quite like that one. An underrated Gilliam film.

    Sparked by references to Snakes on a Plane I ventured out in search of a trailer...found it. This is now my most anticipated movie of the year.

    I think I'm taking the day off of work and watching S.O.A.P. as many times as possible in a row on opening day.

    SNAKES ON A PLANE!

    Duh.

    It'll be interesting to see how successful a movie aimed solely at people who read AICN is.

    District 13 (Banlieue 13)

    This movie sounds awesome. Luc Besson protege directing skilled parkour pioneer David Belle, and underrated stuntman and martial arts choreographer Cyril Raffaelli.

    Plus a Neutron bomb.

    And the film about the Anglo-Irish War that won the Palme d'Or today at Cannes, "The Wind That Shakes The Barley". I hate Ken Loach's nationalist histories and can't wait for Cillian Murphy's eyes to make my skin crawl.

    If I recall correctly, it has been shelved. Pity. I love the book.

    I read about this in Entertainment Weekly (both the review and an article featuring Nick Cave). It sounds excellent.

    is that wim wenders? watched paris, texas recently and enjoyed it a lot. brick is good, maybe a slightly higher mark for effort than execution, but well worth a watch.


    i give much praise to 'in my fathers den' and 'the beat that my heart skipped', both are fantastic.

    as for films yet to be released, 'a scanner darkly' was a great book and the linklater-o-vision looks interesting but i can't believe it's starring keanu 'dopeyfuckheadiwannasmashyourmoronicfaceinwithabrick' reeves - woe is me. 'the fountain' looks good as well, actually, from the teaser trailer 'the fountain' looks shit, but aronofsky=shit is an impossible equation surely?

    You are, of course, correct, Wim Wenders. I also liked Paris, Texas. I just love the sad melanchoily that permeates the whole film even if the setting is really "normal" - I need to have my wife watch that film. Brick? P.s. Avoid like the plague the remake of Wings of Desire, "City of Angels" starring Nicolas Cage and Meg Ryan. That film is really insulting to the original.

    i'll have to watch wings of desire, i don't think i've seen any wenders apart from paris texas - i love films that know how to just shut up, you know waa'mean?

    brick is hard boiled chandler noir superimposed onto cali high school (but much much better than that sounds!)

    speaking of a permeating melancholy, have you seen 'night on earth' and 'mystery train' by jarmusch? stuck a couple of screen caps up on another thread: http://www.styleforum.net/showthread...902#post187902
