A bunch more here:
IMDb :: Boards :: Melancholia (2011) :: New Interviews and Clips

All the clips in HD too. Looks remarkable.

Damn you von Trier for getting me interested in a film of yours again, !!. And making us wait until November, for shame!!

Agreed. Same goes for Jonathan Rosenbaum, though I find him to be a less pedantic writer, even if his tastes are often more high-brow.

Rosenbaum is a great writer. And he's far more open to things than Hoberman. He unfortunately has his biases (doesn't like the Coens, Woody Allen, or Soderbergh), but I think if you look at his Top 10 lists over the years you'd be surprised. And his "alternate AFI 100" list is damned awesome:

I've never gotten the impression Rosenbaum was very biased about anything. I'm not disliking the Coens or Woody Allen qualifies.

I just meant bias in terms of not taking each film of certain directors on their own merits, and bringing in too much baggage.

I've read that before. He dislikes most of Spielberg's work until you get to the 2000s as well, but I'm sure that you're all for that. I'd like to read his books at some point.

Jim Emerson and Dave Kehr are two other favorites of mine.

This has been making the festival rounds for a good while now. Hopefully it makes it out this year some time here.



Also yeah, despite being only lukewarm to outright hostile respectively to Refn's Bronson and Valhalla Rising, Drive is starting to appeal to me. Mainly this second clip that does it:

Agreed Bronson & Valhalla Rising were stylish nightmares, but Refn has certainly showed himself adept at working with actors and dark material in the Pusher trilogy, the second Drive was announced I was hoping it'd be his chance to make a truly coherent and mature project, and from the reviews it seems like he has. Plus that cast is top class.

Anything that draws comparisons to Walter Hill or early Michael Mann catches my attention.

If only it were drawing comparisons to Walter Hill and contemporary Michael Mann.

Thief is a great film.

Manhunter is uneven and painfully dated, but it's still better than Silence of the Lambs.

I'm not really all that crazy for anything pre-Heat anymore, but those two are certainly still really enjoyable.
