Amelie is another fantastic film with subtitles. Also, Inglourious Basterds (I think about 2/3rds is in either German or French, so that has to count).

Just watched the Lobster. Jesus **** that film made me uncomfortable, but somehow still verged on self-parody?

Ahh, I loved The Lobster! The performances blow me away each time I watch it.

I think two changes would have made it impeccable:

Spoiler for Spoilers:
1. Have the animal thing be a ruse. Anyone who can't partner up just gets killed. The animal thing bordered on absurdity.
2. Dial back the ****ing horrorshow music just a tad. That **** was so excessively dramatic it actually pulled me out of the story on a couple of occasions.


Other than that though, it was solid. Reminds me of Never Let Me Go (book) in some respects.

The Lobster is brilliant. The self-parody angle and the constant contrasts between horrifying and hilarious really spoke to me.
Have you seen Dogtooth?

You should be.
It's a bit more subtle and philosophical than The Lobster, although it similarly mixes surreal humour and some pretty extreme stuff. It's also beautifully filmed.

Dogtooth is one crazy and extremely unique movie. I mean, who ever thought of punishment via Listerine?

Side note. The son is really playing the classical guitar stuff in real time during that dance number.

Excited to see another TDL fan. Why's it your favourite?
Because Owen Wilson, Jason Schwartzman, and Adrien Brody in one movie directed by Wes Anderson.

In The Line of Fire

Clint Eastwood, Rene Russo, and John Malkovich. Pretty suspenseful story about the Secret Service trying to stop a brilliant madman (Malkovich, of course) from assassinating the president during his campaign for re-election.
