Obviously what you are doing right now is called (in my upcoming book of psychology at least) validation. I think it's a normal thing to do. People will reply, say anything, and then you're gonna do what you were subconsciently thinking of doing all along.



Well, I borrowed them from a friend, but after watching them I'm sure I'm going for a rampage to own all his stuff. I had some trouble with Blisfully Yours (I liked it though), but really I fell in love with Tropical Malady and Syndromes and a Century. I can't wait for his new films, because he seems to get better everytime he makes one!


mysterious object at noon is lovely.
i'm a little confused by the reservations about blissfully yours, in that i'm not sure how one can find it any more confounding than his other work.  granted the two other people who've seen it only said it was "tough[er]" before expressing their enjoyment, but i think blissfully yours is every bit as mesmerizing and moving as tropical malady and syndromes and a century.  opening credit sequence 40 minutes into the movie?  fantastic.
anyway, no other like him.  among my favorite contemporary filmmakers.

Here we go again...

Btw, the commentary on episode one is fantastic

Thanks for that Moyers interview.  I'm watching it now and it's great!



Speaking of gorgeously violent cartoons.  I can't remember the last movie I've watched in such close proximity to the same viewing, other than trying to get friends to see it.  When in doubt, I just pop this bad boy in.  It's everything that's cool about Heavy Metal, but more refined and in a cooler universe.

it's not the wrench, it's the plumber.


It's been in my XBox for 2 weeks. I still haven't watched it and sent it back to Netflix. SOON.
Falling in love is the greatest joy in life. Followed closely by sneaking into a gated community late at night and firing a gun into the air.


you sound like me nowadays.

ive noted this movie some time ago namely cos of Pubrick's recommendation (i think. i think.) finally netflixd it and it's been trapped in my player waiting to be played.
