Quicksand (1950)

The story of a young auto mechanic making one small, selfish mistake, in a moment of lust, which leads to a series of mistakes each bigger than the last. An interesting combination of thriller and black comedy.

Default Yorgos Lanthimos

The Lobster(Directed by Yorgos Lanthimos) impressed me so hard. Social commentry inside brutal fantasy. I'ts bordering on Absurdist, but comes nowhere close to Alejandro Jordorowski's work.

Alps also by Lanthimos is one of the best movies I've seen recently. Its in Greek, not english like The Lobster, and its far less considerate than it also. Its one of the most involved movies I've seen (by that I mean that it isn't a passive experience like so many movies, where they just dump all the information right onto your lap so you can sit back and just not do any interpretation) It doesn't insult the audience like other movies, where they will add in a line only to give the audience some background information; "Oh my dear son, I'm so sad because your father died in the war some years ago! Of course you know that, but I just felt like saying it." that kind of stuff. Also characters are sometimes added not by necessity, but as the spokesperson for what the audience is thinking; they ask questions about details that the audience might want to know.

In Alps there is none of this. I went in knowing only the premise, which I think was a good move => "A group of people start a business where they impersonate the recently deceased in order to help their clients through the grieving process."

See it See it See it.

I hereby move that the mods ban Chula the next time he uses "ya" in conjunction with "have".

Can we ban Frowny every time he uses the douchebag response of JA ? I'll fall on the sword for that.

YES!!! Haven't seen it yet, but an actual good Wolverine movie will be nice after so many X-Men disappointments. And I'm kinda stoked to see X-23.
