    The Headless Woman (pretentious an boring)
    Stephen Poliakoff's Friends and Crocodiles (Not bad, but too brief for what the director was trying to cover)

    On the flight back watched Voyage of the Dawn Treader (I liked the books, STFU).


    Awesome books, read them as a kid, and reread them every couple years.

    Just saw "crazy heart" with Jeff Bridges on HBO.... meh. just ok, there was really no rise and fall of intenesity. I like my slow character driven movie like the next guy. but this had no build at all!

    was watching Tron 2 last night, was quite a bit better than I had expected concept and visual wise. The Daft Punk score is a nice treat. Some of the acting/lines are pretty corny though, but as a sci-fi nut I can overlook this.

    A phenomenal film, Louis Malle's best, in my humble opinion. The scene where the young couple commits "suicide" is fantastic -- depressing and whimsical at the same time.
    I'd reserve that for Le Feu Follet. If I could choose any one film to have made in film history, that'd be it (marginally ahead of a few films by Tarkovsky, Fassbinder, Bergman). It resonates strongly with me.

    This week:

    The Taking of Power by Louis XIV (Rossellini)
    Early Summer (Ozu)
    Election (To)
    Black Orpheus (Camus)

    I Was Born But and Tokyo Twilight are my personal favourites. Also, Ohayo is a charming film.

    Finished X-2 last night. was sweet.

    Watched Animal Kingdom. Had the potential to be great. Plot needed to be tightened up a bit in a few spots.

    My latest movie was the "Why we laugh". documentary about african-american Comedians during the evolution from earliest Slaveship-era until today. A very great view in the world of black comedy with tons of unssen footage by comedians like Richard Pryor,Eddie Murphy,Bill Cosby, Katt Williams and Dave Chapelle.
    I´ve always wondered about the fact that I somehow prefer black comedians...now I know why!
    They´re just better[​IMG])) Naw, just kidding......but most of them are![​IMG]

    Echoes of the Rainbow (Law) - Too corny for my taste, but Simon Yam is in it and he's great.

    The Return (Zvyagintsev) - One of the best psychological thrillers of the decade. I could watch it once a week for the rest of my life and it would never start sucking.
