Ugh, that Serbian movie shit was just too much. There's a fine line between having the gore compliment the story, and having it in the movie just for the sake of shock factor. There were moments when the movie showed signs of genuine intensity, but was that baby/final scene really needed? I didn't like the Director ether, seems like someone that's sensationalizing violence just to get his name out there and capitalize on the new wave of french extremity that was booming at the time. It's too bad, the movie was well shot and had potential, but it jumped the Shark by being TOO extreme without the situation really warranting it. At least in Salo, it was presented as a plausible thing and wasn't trying to be a cool cult movie. Too much style in Serbian, way too much violence and very little substance. imo.

Great list again, too greatness there, i supossed there will be some Tarkovsky but never expected it being your #1. There is again a great bunch that will be in mine (if i got to put it before the close ).
Yeah I heard about that, you can't really blame people for being appaled by the movie back in a decade where we weren't accustomed to this sort of thing. I think it was just a very misunderstood movie, and kudos to Pasolini for sticking to his guns. It's the movies that forces you to think that leave the most powerful lasting impression, and this one accomplished that even if it made me feel uncomfortable.

Better hurry up with that list. I find all your lists facinating because you throw in so much stuff i've never heard of before, and I always thought i've seen a fare share of obscure gems so it's always nice to know that there's much more left to discover. As for Tarkovsky, he's very much an acquired taste, but to me Stalker is his best film hands down, so it was a no brainer to put that at number one, especially since he (along with Coppola and Polanski) really put their stamp on that decade. Stalker is probably the one sci fi that Cody might find even more boring than Blade Runner, it's VERY slow moving and hard to follow, but at the same time extremely intelligent, superbly acted and the cinematography was WAY ahead of it's time. Every single frame of that film are beautiful and the whole is in a class of it's own. Absolute Masterpiece in every sense.

Thanks!

Yeah I ranked Jaws low, but I do find the movie terribly flawed. The reason I put it on my list is for the painstaking effort they put into making that movie as realistic as possible. Based on the making of, handling Bruce the Mechanical Shark seemed like a nightmare. It still remains groundbreaking, and an effective horror movie. If this is any consolation, Jaws is amungst my favorite Spielberg movies


Also echo your sentiment that the 70's was an awesome decade. I'm not so sure anymore that it's my favorite, we'll have to see how my 60's list turns out. It's definitely a toss between those two decades for me.

Re: General Movie Discussion Part II (part III coming soon)

It's the fact you don't see Jaws often throughout that makes it so frightening. That or I've been to Universal Studios theme park as a small lad & was RIGHT ON THE SIDE THE SHARK POPS OUT ON and I'm scarred for life. It's one of the two.

Totally agree with everything you said here. Way too sensationalized and basically there to create controversy. I know the director claimed it was all a metaphor for the violence and oppression suffered by the Serbian population, but that seems a little far fetched when there's basically no reference to those themes throughout.

@blarg re: 70s list.

Happy to see love for Eraserhead and One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. Have to admit to not being a fan of The Exorcist but I can understand why it has to be on a list of this sort and I'd even include it on my own, just because of the commotion it created at the time of its release and its lasting influence.

Re: General Movie Discussion Part II (part III coming soon)

Echo the feelings toward A Serbian Movie, most of the horror this days want to be direct and graffic (not a bad thing in itself) but with style, which i find despicable. It seems that for moments they are only worried to find original ways of murdering someone or making the scene more cool without thinking why they are shooting in that way or for a reason to be graffic.

Pasolini was making a lot of controversial things beore being killed: openly denuncing the mop, criticizing the government, fighting against the religion influence in Italia, being critic with the sexual revolution, etc. All things that in different ways appear on Salo. Sadly most of the people saw the movie at the time like a celebration of gay's conducts (i don't know why) maybe because Pasolini was open about his homosexuality.

From what i remember the first time i saw it, i wasn't able to ending it.

the 70's for my are about some obscure gems, i will throw here most of the american new wave (Coppola, Scorsese and co) but i feel that there is people who need a little more recognition (the Straubs, Oliveira, etc), so it will be interesting, add to that the fact that i have 3 candidates for number 1 and still can't decide xD.

And i agree about Tarkovsky, i recommend you (if you haven't heard of it) the book that he wrote about his style called sculpting in time were he explain his aesthetics, is a great read to understand his ideas
