    Nobody mentioned Invasion of the Body Snatchers or The Thing? What's more paranoid than believing that a loved one has been replaced by a nearly indistinguishable double who is nevertheless not the person you once knew.

    Ha, yeah, that seems to be trending pretty hard right now, surfacing in Rivka Galchen's debut novel, as well as a couple other recent dramatic works I can't remember.

    Of films from the last ten years, Michael Haneke's Caché (Hidden) also stands out. But then most of his films do...

    I wasn't aware that this was becoming or had become a popular topic, to be honest. Is the Galchen book (just looking at some quick synopses I'm guessing it's Atmospheric Disturbances) worth reading?

    Others think so. I haven't gotten to it yet, still sort of miffed she beat out an e-quaintance for the New Yorker's super-career-making Twenty Under Forty, which as it turns out, is surprisingly haphazard and arbitrary. But yeah, that's the one. It reminds of Lost Highway as well, also based on one of those syndromes, but reading about it kind of sucks away the magic, IMO.

    Since winning the Lifetime Achievement Award, it has me wondering again, why are we so permissive when it comes to Woody Allen?

    Pardon me, but here's a special tie-in from the All New 2014 50 Book Challenge thread, OMG! -- in which you should all (please) be taking glorious part!

    :D :slayer:



    Fans of Witold Gombrowicz:

    After Ferdydurke, I was officially obsessed. A few days ago, I found out there are at least three film adaptations of his work; subsequently, I was stoked.


    [VIDEO][/VIDEO]



    This is Pornografia. It was.... It had good scenery. It also deviated from the book in stupid and pointless ways.

    I wonder: have any of you seen or can you recommend (or point me to) a Ferdydurke adaptation? I know it's out there! Possibly it's good!

    So I watched "Django Unchained" yesterday. I gotta say it was somewhat entertaining but there was too much overkill and a lot of bad decisions. I didn´t like the random, two second flashbacks. Some gave a little background story but others were pointless. I thought the score was all over the place as well, and the blood, oh the blood. It was fin in "Kill Bill", it went perfectly with the aesthetic, the tone of the story, but seeing jamie foxx shooting next to a body being shot with blood jumping into the air was too much. I don´t mind extreme violence, but this "signature" thing of his could have been left out.

    You do know that The Departed is a remake of Infernal Affairs right?
