what? how are they horrible posts? why would i want to make horrible posts? i wouldn't, so clearly i wouldn't make horrible posts, so clearly those aren't horrible... might want to try some logic...

I like this list. I've been meaning to see stuff by John Paizs for a while.

Obviously the question was about those very preferences.

It seems that one can make horrible posts without wanting to do so. Not saying that your posts are horrible.

I'm in a pretty saccharine mood lately so I might watch Dames soon. I didn't end up watching Some Came Running yet. My posts are so pointless tonight.

Campbell Scott's performance in Top of the Food Chain is the funniest thing I have ever seen

Marnie is probably Hitchcock's richest film for me, or at least the one that I continue to get lost in during every viewing, the 'answers' dissolving into endless, irreducible mysteries. His command of imagery was never stronger (I've argued that David Lynch's career was born in the storm sequence -- god, those flashes) and it remains the most indelible collage of his obsessions and demons.

As for Oshima, Three Resurrected Drunkards and Diary of a Shinjuku Thief could have easily been my pick. But the wind blew to Boy. The wind...blew to Boy.

'drunkards' is mindblowing; finally someone else sees the light! for me my far away #1 is sun's burial, but after that it is tough... about five candidates for #2

Haven't seen Sun's Burial! Awesome. Have you seen The Catch? Plays reeeeeeeally well with Death By Hanging

death by hanging is one of the only ones i haven't seen... one day i'll have to finish it off, although he's one of those guys who has a bunch of random unfindable non-movie weird things just strewn about his filmography, just to make it hard for me to watch all of them. but i could still watch the features.

15 down, umm maybe a few to go? one of them is a 130 minute long story narrated over still drawings - but it's an action ninja fest movie. man some people just really like having inaccessible filmographies. but you certainly must watch sun's burial ^_^
