    Drive demonstrates all the damage that Antonioni, via Mann, has done to american crime movies. Bad lieutenant is semi-watchable but leaving las vegas is a must watch for anyone.

    Was Drive really American, though?

    (EDIT: or is it a Rififi-like hybrid! O_O )

    I'm actually a big Nicolas Cage fan. Wicker man is endlessly rewatchable. If you like Cage at all, even ironically, you need to see Time To Kill. Might be hard to find, it's a really terrible 90s (I think) Itallian film. Nic stars as an Italian army officer in Africa who rapes a local woman for kicks, and then they fall in love. I won't reveal the end, I would hate to ruin such a great movie for you all.

    How is it that Wild at Heart isn't available on Netflix on DVD or streaming?

    i really hate nicholas cage, but i think wicker man is probably one of the greatest films ive ever seen.

    ive done nothing this break except read and watch movies, the best i've seen:

    the ides of march
    moneyball
    crazy, stupid love
    capote (rewatch)
    the ghost writer

    has anyone seen 'take shelter'? i've heard it's really good, but can't find it anywhere

    wickerman is great movie, because it's plot is so plausible.. I bet that type of stuff happens daily in the pacific northwest.

    also i like mann and i like drive. heat is maybe the best action film of the last 15 years (or is it older?)

    i wish someone out there was still making decent scifi films

    anyway, funny story:

    my gf and i went to meet a friend of hers a week ago who has spent the last year and a half teaching in japan. the friend gave my gf a bunch of gifts, including something she described as 'japanese bath salts.' my gf has a cold so she decided to take a bath (which she's in as I type this). when she opened the "bath salts" she thought it was strange because it's just a bag of leaves, but threw it in anyways. it took us like 5 minutes to realize that it wasn't actually bath salts, but tea. and now she's soaking in a giant batch of tea.

    Huh??? It used to be. Oh well, just buy it, it's worth owning. I love David Lynch too much

    Cage has done lots of good stuff: Raising Arizona, Vampire's Kiss, Wild at Heart, Leaving Las Vegas, Snake Eyes (you must deal, ok?), Bringing Out the Dead, etc.

    Nothing is as bad as Inception.


    Take Shelter is great. One of the best movies of last year.

    In the meantime, you should also look for Nichols' previous film, [i[Shotgun Stories[/i]. While it's not as good, it's still well worth watching.


    Undercover FW 2009


    I know it's quibbling, but I dunno if I would call Heat an "action film".

    Off the top of my head, I can't think of any (good) directors working exclusively in sci-fi at the moment. Nobody say Primer.

    I will always love Nic Cage in The Rock; it may have been my introduction to him, I don't remember any more.

    For upcoming sci-fi, look up Looper (dir. Rian Johnson of Brick) -- it's coming out later this year, along with a prequel to a little property called Alien....

    primer was really overrated. i think half it's appeal was that it was so needlessly complex that it you felt somehow smarter for trudging through it the second time (because you always have to watch the best scifi movies twice!).

    some 'ok' scifi that i've seen recently has been babylon a.d. (pretty sweet atmosphere, and the extended unrated version returns a lot of bite to the film) and and 'the thing' prequel, which wasn't nearly as terrible as i expected.
