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

Yeah don't think I've posted that review here before. I posted it somewhere else and the DMS talk convinced me to find it and repost it here. Will gladly take 'Naked' on board alongside Les 7 Jours du Talion. Feel free to hit up some 50s/60s stuff in the near future. Would quite like to sample more obscure and hidden cinema and this is one time where I'm completely in your debt in terms of what to look for. French, Italian or just classic US cinema, will gladly take on board any recommendation from any genre since reading some of the discussions on these old age classics is making me regret being more closeted in terms of films compared to wrestling and music.

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

Naked is a must, you'll def love that film, Ive said it everytime it comes up but Mike Leigh's later film Happy-Go-Lucky makes a great companion piece in that its like the complete opposite of Naked, really heartwarming and uplifting and funny whereas Naked is HEAVY (but brilliant).

The movie takes place in London and the accents are THICK as molasses, but I doubt that'd be much of an issue with you .
Just on this, its set in London but main character Johnny has a heavy manchester accent (Salford to be specific), the best accent in it is Ewan Bremner's cameo (MAGGIE!!) as a homeless Scots lunatic, but yeah neither of those accents will phase a welshman.

Its gets pimped a bit in this thread so I'll give a shout for Le Samouri as a good way to ease into 60s french cinema, maybe Vivre sa Vie too as some Godard is essential.

The homeless Scot (Archie?) in Naked is absolutely hilarious. Not a film that's going to make you laugh but that cameo is awesome.

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

Cheers Hanoi, shall bear that in mind and make a note of it.

Yeah Mancunian/Salford accents won't phase me in the slightest, neither should a Scottish one bar the odd word or two.

@ both of those films. Will have a hunt for both and hopefully get onto them by the end of the week.

I only watched like 20 minutes of the descendants, it was so sad I couldn't take it. Albeit I was high, still was super sad.

That would be awesome, getting more WOOLCOCK ITT is not a bad thing.. it's, a good thing.

:ddp


I'll continue to recommend stuff individually, but i'll do something for you (and anyone interested) that will make it much easier to get a feel for each movie on my lists. I'll take an hour or two tonight to work on that. It could be a good place to scout if you're looking for something specific to your liking.

Do put Naked on your priority list, I don't think there's many films that evoke this type of raw honesty, and that's almost an understatement. I'm pretty sure your review for that would be a contender for the longest movie-related thing you've ever written on WF You want character study? This gives you it in ample amounts.

Yeah that's true, if I recall correctly he leaves Manchester for London at the start of the movie.


Absolute peak of the movie for me was when Johnny's existential conversation with the Securyguard, but there's too many peaking moments that it's hard to count. Every character is well fleshed out and "bare boned", there's a rare level of brutal sincerity in all the performances, even the Narcassistic Misogynist Landlord, while almost the elephant in the room by being the most stereotypically cast, still manages to make you hate him for the way he fucks with Sophie and generally treats women as his inferior. The scene with the woman dancing in the window is also a powerful moment, how Johnny's intellectual weight almost completely shatters her self esteem and destroy her, the despair in her eyes when he tells her that line " I can't.. you look like me Mother" is bone chillingly realistic. All the females are treated intelligently in this and give very solid performances. I think Johnny is the one of the most fascinating character studies ever put on film, he's terribly flawed, and he's almost unlikeable in the way he pushes his knowledge onto other people, but his complexity along with David's BRILLIANT performance also makes him utterly fascinating.


at the homeless nutjob Scot F' Bombing every five seconds. Ewan was great in the brief time he was afforded.

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

Splendid blarg. I do appreciate you going to much effort to put something together, rest assured I'll be more productive in my viewing in light of such effort on your part. No repeat of Buffalo '66 this time I promise .

Feel free to recommend anything you personally adore or even something you'd just be interested in seeing how I react to. I'm going in with an open mind and fresh perspective because its such an untapped area of cinema for me.

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

I don't think it would be good for my health if Vincent Gallo secured a role on GOT. I've already got Joffrey, Jamie & Cersei to drive me into insomnia without that cockroach in the mix. Unless he brings Christina Ricci with him, in which case I could tolerate him. But only if Robert takes a sword to his mouth and cuts off his tongue.

Coolbeans.


@ McQueen's comment. As much as I hate to say it, that statement has merit. GOT has been hitting it's stride as of late, and the last episode was BOSS. Glad to see you're finally getting into it too.
