STOP! PLEASE! Stop this foolish japery it hurts me to hear however jestful it may be.

Anyhoo, overmeunderyou as you seem to be an owner of the Eric Rohmer criterion set wouldst thou recommend to a Rohmer newcomer like myself to try and see some of his work first or are you confident that it would win me over and justify the purchase blind. It's a lot of money for a blind buy but this guy's seen by many as somewhat of a legend...

Well of course, it would be best if you are familiar with his work and it's something you enjoy before you invest in the dvd set. I would recommend you watch a black & white and a color film from the set, just to give you an idea.

Now playing:

Mind Game, its from the same animation studio that did Cat Soup and parts of the animatrix. It combines some crazy animation similar to "kids story" from the animatrix with some awesome waking life/scanner darkly-like rotoscoping. Such an awesome experience, i would've killed to see this in the theater

stick with the original.
Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

The original was great, but this remake was pretty creepy.  Imagining a voice for him was weird, but seeing him speak had a different level of terror.

Did you ever review Nosferatu or plan to?

i believe i gave a blurb in the Horror thread for the remake when i saw it and i wouldnt be surprised if the original showed up in Best Horror this month.

How did you fit a J.Crew catalog in your DVD player?
