Some Kurosawa, including those recently discussed:

And here's a PHENOMENAL Fritz Lang film noir, Scarlet Street with Edward G. Robinson. It's on DVD in much better quality, but not easy to find. This is really one of the best.

If Bea Arthur were my mom,







I'd probably have a more expensive pair of shoes.

I was watching The Golden Girls earlier today.

When the one brown-haired woman started talking about her sexual fantasies I started to question my own sanity.

Back to topic,

The New World absolutely swept me away. It didn't have a single weak facet, and everything from the photography, lighting, editing, acting, James Horner's wonderful score, it all just took the story to another level.

And I'd be a liar if I said I didn't swell up with tears when Pocahontas runs into Rolfe's arms after her final meeting with John Smith. God damn that got me good.

I'll try to write a formal review some time tomorrow.

The final couple minutes of that film, when the Wagner swells again (Shore's score is used minimally compared to the Mozart and Wagner), and there's that huge rush of images, such an orgy of cinematic perfection that it's hard to contain one's self. I was almost shaking in the theatre.

Malick = God

James Horner hasn't written an original score since Khan, he can suck it.

laz, thanks for the website links. I've been trying to get ahold of Under Capricorn for a while now so yay.

I'll give it a good browsing when I get home and download a bunch. Especially Rashomon, need to watch that again.

EDIT:

Shadow of a Doubt (Hitch's personal fav)
The Lady Vanishes (great 30s Hitch)
M (essential Fritz Lang proto-noir)

Wow, this gets better and better.

Shadow of a Doubt is on there?

I also found a really cool BBC documentary that I read about some time ago, about the rise of Islamic Fundamentalism and parallels to Neo-Conservatism in America. It's called The Power of Nightmares. I haven't DLed yet but supposedly it's very good.

That's true actually, the Wagner really was the most effective music in the film.

I am still a fan of Horner's though. The dude doesn't really get as much respect as he deserves.
