Nice, good sir. Thought you'd have Boogie Nights on there, as well.

Ah, I can relate.

I really need to see some Malick. Won't take me too long either.

The first time I saw anything by Malick was Days of Heaven. I did not know anything about him, was just told to watch the film. I was fucking blown away. As you know, I don't know dick about film, but I knew I was watching something special.

Anyway, my list is nothing special, and has maybe 10 films not found on prior lists. But it's a fun exercise. I wish I had more foreign or older films on my list, but, I've just not seen all that many of either genre. The Lives of Others is likely the best foreign film I've seen in a long time, and also was a late cut.

Is that a good starting point then? Or should I just go chronologically?

Yeah, it's always fun to see them and discuss, I feel. There's always time to catch that stuff later, that's my rationale, at least.

I look forward to the Son or the Father mocking something in my list. Rite of passage.

Man, for me, I'd just go chronologically, since it's such a small amount of films were talking about.

Definitely going to check out stuff that I haven't seen on your list though NSW, you've yet to really let me down on any film recommendation. Plus, you have the Network at the top, and I STILL haven't seen that

Honestly, all 4 of Malick's films are near-unparalleled masterworks. It doesn't matter where you start.

NSW, Woody's face at the end of Manhattan looks stellar in that montage I'm making.

I've still got about 20-25 movies to rip to my computer before I do any substantial work though. Shit be daunting.

I look forward to seeing this.

Ashley, I think Network is one of the best films I've ever seen and am surprised that it does not get talked about more often in these here parts.

I find it amusing that this sober ass prick won't spell out "God", but he throws "drunk" out there for all to see.
