Re: General Movie Discussion Part II

I put YOJIMBO on my favorite western movie list. I don't even give a fuck if it's Japanese. It's a western and it's greatness.

You seem like you can appreciate all kinds of cinema so I reckon you should watch that. Another film that certainly won't appeal to a wide audience due to the reasons you stated about Beasts', but if you liked that I'd say give it a go. It's incredibly ambitious and it doesn't have a straight narrative, and it's left completely up to the viewer to pick up on the symbolism, metaphores and messages for themselves. In the same way as Beasts it's a film about childhood at it's heart and it's shown mostly through memories so at times it's very surreal. The themes span to epic proportions though, like, from the creation of earth to religion to what it actually means to be alive to family issues. The contrast in showing the biggest thing imaginable in the creation of the universe and then something as small as the birth of a child and how both are equally important in one way or another is amazing and really powerful. Its also the most visually awesome film I've ever seen, so you'll appreciate that if nothing else. It's a ridiculous piece of work in the best way possible to me. Not many films have left the impression on me this did. Anyway... I could write about it forever.
I think I might have to view this in light of the praise bestowed upon it .

Re: General Movie Discussion Part II

Malick is really hit or miss with me, but The Tree of Life is pretty fantastic.

I partly agree here about Malick.

Tree Of Life is really great. Not sure if I'd put it above The Thin Red Line since I really love that film and adore its soundtrack.

Re: General Movie Discussion Part II

No mention of True Grit for the modern Westerns?

I quite liked The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada when I caught it on TV one time. And I'm hoping to watch The Good, The Bad & The Weird soon.

Forgot about that, pretty solid film. I can't remember her name but the girl in it was superb. She was only 13 at the time as well.

Re: General Movie Discussion Part II

Wasn't Hailee Steinfeld going to do a nude scene in something? Has she done it yet?

I watched SANJURO today in class, a sequel to YOJIMBO. I liked it better than YOJIMBO. a bit more action and more fun of a story. Not spoiling it, but the 9 samurai he partners up with were hilarious. they always moved as one unit making them a comical bunch.

and the end scene; shit! never gonna forget that.

Lol, I hadn't heard anything about that. She's barely done any roles since but I guess she's finishing school and what not. I look forward to seeing her in the future though as she seems very talented.
