Any one else into Kaufman...I am not a huge fan, but there are a lot of just amazing shots and tricks he does in Quills, Henry & June, and even The Unbearable Lightness of Being.  His visual style is just awesome at times, and he pulls off close-ups with the best of them!  

Not to mention I guess I like his movies cause they are usually dealing with a sexuallity that has not always been seen before.  Or at least he presents it in a different way that most would...I could just be a dirtball though, too.

Anyone else enjoy his films????

Check out Henry & June....(first movie to ever recieve an NC-17 rating), it's a total period peice, but I think it's very artsy (so to speak) in it's own sorta way!

I had to cross a picket line outside the theater to go see that film because of that whole rating system debate. I don't remember it being a film worth protesting over though.  :yabbse-undecided:

I need to see that. I've only seen Quills, which I really loved. It was so delightfully morbid. That guillotine POV shot is lovely.

the unbearable lightness of being is just great, lewis' best performance in my opinion.

The Invasion of the Body Snatchers remake was great. In some ways superior to the original.

speaking of capri pants, i think its funny that some of the english guys wear them. if i wore them back home i'd get my ass kicked, rightfully so. guess its one of those things only european guys can get away with. not sure though.

Tell the women kissing trend to the audience that was with me when I saw "The Hours".

It didn't go over so well?....Well, I really could careless to see a scene like that or not, but with society as well as films, it's just becoming trendy to be bi, or have a lesbo scene (to the point where it's kinda getting old, sure the shock value was great at first, but it's so common now, it gets old quick)...and for the stink that was created over Henry & June, I don't think today people would think anything of it.  Cruel Intentions (As well as let's not forget that remarkable kissing scene in Not Another Teen Movie) felt the need to put a girl-girl kissing scene...gimme a break!  I am not hating....but see my point?
