    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Added to my list. Faust is a pretty good book. How close to the book is the movie?

    Which book? It's an ancient legend that has been made into plays (most famously), novels, operas and movies. This version sticks to the main themes while mixing together several versions of the story, in a very surrealistic and low-fi sort of way that blends live action, stop-motion and puppetry.

    The main character is an actor who plays Faust in a stage production, but he may actually be Faust. Or not.

    It's all a bit indescribable, really.

    Oh, yeah, I was referring to Goethe's Faust.

    Not that I can think of. Not that I felt my time was wasted @ the cinema, but if I had missed it and catched it later on a small screen I would've been fine with that.

    Virginie Despentes' Bye Bye Blondie with the ever delightful Emmanuele Béart and the slightly-less-delightful-these-days Béatrice Dalle who's been at the nutella crepes since my fond memories of her getting rammed ragged in Betty Blue. Anyway, their love story runs in parallel with two teenagers'. The abysmal English subtitles are hilarious.

    I think I've seen Boondock Saints for the first time yesterday. It's highly enjoyable.

    Do yourself a favour and avoid the sequel.

    Traffic, was good but I feel like it ended abruptly, I wanted another 3o minutes of movie to see what happens next. Besides that the Ocean's movies and Schizopolis, haven't seen other Soderbergh movies. Any good ones?

    ^ Not his best work imho. I expected much better.
    Out of sight was great, as well as The Limey.
    think Sex Lies was good as well, but it has been a while since I watched it, so I am not sure.
