Rainer Werner Fassbinder & Ernst Lubitsch.

In terms of the living ones, Herzog. The man, the myth the legend.
Apr 19 Steve French commented on Scarlett Johansson, Predator.
Never thought I'd say this, but Scotland seems like a terrifying hellscape.

The scene with the deformed guy was incredible and I am going to go buy the soundtrack ASAP. Just a psychotically addictive and strange flick. Loved it.
Jan 5 Steve French commented on Locked in Rooms of Their Own.
No Life After Life either. It was my favorite book of the year by a very long shot. Still, this is always a good resolution to strive for.

I am now reading The Luminaries (also written by a woman) and loving it so far.

SO you're afraid of THE SUSCEPTIBILITY OF OTHERS:

Henry: Portrait of A Serial Killer

I don't know how anyone could count the milky eyed hair-eating, money eating, original Godzilla theme* accompanied troll portion as a sane scene.

*Seriously, I want that song playing with me at all times. Makes everything sound much more exciting.

Also, notice that the person Mr. Oscar sprints out of the car to shoot in the outdoor restaurant is the same person(a?) that he was playing at the beginning of the day on the way to his first appointment.

What a mindfuck.

A few things:

Dennis Lavant was amazing. Probably several of the best performances in any movie last year from one dude (especially the troll tromping around to the Godzilla theme and the gangster who kills himself (?) with a knife twice).

The accordions playing RL Burnside was the best scene of the movie. Pure genius.

The structure of this movie is flawless. Don't like what is happening on screen? Just wait a few minutes and you'll get a chance to see if what's next floats your boat.

Don't know quite how much I "liked" it or could ever with a good conscience recommend it to anyone I know and love, but I haven't been able to get parts of it out of my head since watching it Friday. Call it the "Dogtooth Scenario."

Also, next week or very very soon should be Holy Motors.

Just a suggestion.
