Pretty cool that you covered a range of different genres from different countries, I can tell that you're truly passionate about filmmaking, and I can respect the effort even if our preference don't always align. Taste is completely subjective.

Now you inspired me to make my own list, hope you'll like it
Thanks for the props man, i know we don't always agree but is fun to discuss with you so i have no problem. From the list i recommend you to see Millenium Mambo, maybe i'm a little bias with Hou but is incredible.

It would be fun to see how different are our lists

At first i was going to put Miami Vice xD, both movies are an amazing experience and the use of the digital image that Mann has achieved is some shit out of this World. Public Enemies get the edge for being the next step in the chain and because is more dark and direct.

Yeah, it's through differing opinions that you come up with some of the best discussions. I can just think of the one we had on Chaplin's speech, or just recently Nolan's Batman as examples of disagreements turning into a really cool exchange of ideas. The key is to maintain the respect for the other's opinion, and that's where a lot of people fall apart.

I think my list will be way different, which will make it even more interesting to get your take on it. Hope more people join in, it's a cool idea and can make for good recommendations to come back to.

Re: General Movie Discussion Part II

Loads of stuff I've not even heard of on your list asdf, think I'll look at some of them in the next couple of weeks maybe. If I were to do a list it would be so different, but props for the list you came up with. I watched that opening scene from Millennium Mambo you posted in another thread and thought it looked great btw. I can safely say now though that inland Empire would be my number 1.

Re: General Movie Discussion Part II

Think I've seen only about 4 movies on asdf's list, haha.

Death Proof is one of them. At least someone else digs it like I do.

Still dying to give Inland Empire a watch. Want to branch off into more of Lynch's work.

Nouvelle Vague.

Re: General Movie Discussion Part II

Lynch is awesome. Ranking:

1. Lost Highway
2. Mulholland Drive
3. Inland Empire
4. Eraserhead
5. The Straight Story
6. The Elephant Man
7. Blue Velvet
8. Dune

I haven't seen Wild At Heat or the Twin Peaks film. Most people wouldn't have Lost Highway at the top but goddamn it I love that film. Fucking awesome. And most probably wouldn't have Blue Velvet that low at all but I just couldn't get into it (apart from Dennis Hopper's awesome performance) and Lynch has such stellar work that a lot of stuff came in above it.

Re: General Movie Discussion Part II

havent seen half the stuff on asdf's list either, tbh the 00s are probably the hardest decade for me to make a list from because of all the stuff Id probably love but havent gotten around to seeing yet, and im pretty crap at making lists anyway but I imagine mine would be pretty Asian heavy, probably a lot of documentaries too if we're including them(could probably even do a separate list for docs now that I think of it).
I'll have a think about it and maybe attempt it over weekend.

@ABH- Mulholland Drive and Blue Velvet at the top for me, Ive tried a few times but just cant warm to his Dune, Wild At Heart is flawed and a bit ridiculous but def worth a look

Re: General Movie Discussion Part II

Yeah, Dune's pretty bad. I know we spoke about Blue Velvet earlier in the week. I really do need to watch that again - perhaps I'll enjoy it more the second time around. And I'll check out Wild At Heart at some point. What's your opinion of Lost Highway, Hanoi?

Re: General Movie Discussion Part II

havent seen it in years and only saw it once but I remember loving it, neo-noir and surrealism being favorites of mine, low lighting and camera angles stick in the memory too but its the kinda movie that needs multiple rewatches to take in and my watch/rewatch list is already a mile long with this fucking thread haha

soundtrack is pretty good too, big Angelo Badalamenti and Barry Adamson fan

Re: General Movie Discussion Part II

Hit the nail on the head with your description there. Lynch does surrealism better than most, plus the whole plot and all the characters are well written and performed brilliantly (The Mystery Man!). It is definitely a film that demands re-watches to be absorbed and understood fully. Although Lynch always leaves a lot up in the air with his films, so 'understood' is probably the wrong word.
