I actually liked the first 30 minutes of this movie. It had some serious scares that didn't feel cheap or forced. The sound was also fantastic and I wish it wasn't late at night so I could really turn it up. The movie took a serious dive into some silly plot twists but it wasn't too bad to completely kill it. I'd say it's worth a watch, at least until the middle of the movie.

6/10



Brilliant film. This was my first Haneke film and from what I've read it's his best work. I'd like to see the rest, This reminded me a bit of The Conversation with Gene Hackman where the film doesn't go very far with the plot but the details and filmmaking make it a wonderful film to go over with a fine tooth comb. I'd definitely recommend this one.

8.5/10



I finally got around to see the film that beat out Apocalypse Now and Francis Ford Coppola. I did like it. Hoffman is always enjoyable to watch and the film was definitely heartfelt and well done. I'd give it a 7.5/10

With that said..........HOW IN THE HELL DID THIS WIN OVER













Oh and I'm working 20 hours today and tomorrow at a dying theater with no business so I'm going to be watching a lot of films. If you have any netflix recommendations that'd be awesome.

Hm, any preferred genres? Or genres to avoid?

No comedies. Preferably lesser known films. Could be horror/drama/sci fi.

Love that movie. If you liked that you should definitely check out his adaptation of Franz Kafka's The Castle and his newest film White Ribbon. Both are beautifully shot and rank right up there with Cache IMO.

If you haven't seen these they're all great films on Netflix. Knowing your infatuation with film, you've probably already seen some of the ones that I'll list but what the hell I'll just throw it out there.

Melancholia, The Cow, Eternity and a Day, The Cabinet of Doctor Caligari, Battleship Potemkin, Benny's Video (another Haneke film), You're Gonna Miss Me, The Color of Pomegranates, Hour of the Wolf, and Pierrepoint. Hope I could recommend something that you'ven't seen.

Wonderful suggestions thank you. There is a bunch I haven't seen from that group. Check out my new film blog for reviews on a couple the next day or two. I think I'm going to watch Battleship Potemkin next. Finishing up Sin Nombre now.

That movie is super intense. It's one of my favorites.

Pi (1998)

Darren Aronofsky's directorial debut made on a paltry budget of $60,000 and filmed in black and white. If you like "art-house" films then this is about as definitive as you can get. It features a small cast with a few very memorable support characters and some interesting themes like the ancient Chinese game of Go. It also has the best electronic soundtracks I've ever heard in a movie with artists like Aphex Twin, Massive Attack, Autechre, Clint Mansell, and Orbital. The film I'm most reminded of is David Lynch's Eraserhead (1977) for its surreal nature, use of insects, and close up shots of brains. The story was intriguing and kept me interested all the way to the end and also managed to end in such a way that actually surprised me. This one is on Netflix Instant at the moment so if you're a fan of Darren Aronofsky's later work or just want to see something that's out-there, I'd recommend you give this one a try.
