It's a difficult movie to watch. Not only is it more than seven hours long, it's circular. Each scene mimicking the steps to the tango (six forward, six back or something like that). And he'll often hold on one scene for over a half hour, for example: the doctor sitting in his chair writing down everything he sees outside his house. He then goes to get booze and passes out. That's more than a half hour of the film. If you feel you can stand it, watch it. You won't regret it.

That reminds me of coffee and cigarettes by director jim jarmusch, which I ordered on amazon a few weeks ago.

I found a movie because of a show I went to with jk, we saw Amon Tobin. I was looking into more of that DJ's work and I found that he did a score for the movie taxidermia, check this wild movie out: http://www.taxidermia.hu It's a hugarian flick.

Ok, The Departed was damn good. Martin Scorsese's return to form. Though it suffered from some pacing problems (I'm thinking this was cut down from Scorsese's original edit) in the beginning, it held it's own and nearly surpassses the original trilogy of movies it was based on. Recommended!

Tarsem Singh is always visually pleasing. Unfortunately, that's all you get from music video directors.

Though The Cell was pretty bad ass.

i'm saying it's *not* a great storyline, *especially* to someone with a higher appreciation for film.

i like it from the perspective of those 80's storytelling movies that aren't that great, but their crappiness is at least somewhat charming. knadidaamean

What the fuck is with everyone and this movie!? Is the book really that good? Why?
I'm starting to feel like I missed out on some critical part of american childhood or something.

Kind of like how I was mocked mercilessly in 6th grade because I didn't know any of the words to the pledge of allegiance. :(

Observe & Report was really good. It was also really, really, really disturbed. Especially when he goes off his medication and starts delivering these bizarre voice-over monologues that are featured in the trailers.

That and the scene where he takes on 15 cops with only a MagLight was intense.

> I found a movie because of a show I went to with jk, we saw Amon Tobin. I was looking into more of that DJ's work and I found that he did a score for the movie taxidermia, check this wild movie out: http://www.taxidermia.hu It's a hugarian flick.

I watched another film by that director: Hukkle
No dialogue, beautiful scenes, INTENSE camera angles, and awesome sound. I liked it a lot. It made me want to visit Hungary.
