It's easily in my top 5 foreign language films. Brilliantly made and very, very moving. It takes some serious investment though because it's a pretty dense story that's non linear and bounces back and forth over a period of 25 years of the main character's lives.

Spoiler for Tracking Shot:
To this day I still don't know how they pulled off this 5 minute continuous tracking shot.

What're the other four? I'll see about watching it soon. In the meantime here's my top five foreign films

Stalker
Bullhead
The Ascent
Hour of the Wolf
Oldboy

But there are so so so so so so so so many

Love Seventh Seal. I kept it to one movie per director or else it would've been all Tarkovsky and Bergman films. Have you seen Hour of the Wolf? That's his most interesting imo along with Persona. Wild Strawberries is definitely worth a watch as well, I think that's his most realized film as far as personal style goes, but he has a long and amazing filmography.

Thumbs up Get Out!

This movie was amazing, it is by far the only movie this past year that I would not mind seeing again, being that it was the only movie I saw this year so far. I don't know about you guys but I'm not really looking forward to watching 50 shades darker. I saw the first one and it was ok but I wasn't impressed but Get Out was a great film in 2017 so far.

The Summit

On Netflix. Absolutely riveting documentary about the 2008 K2 disaster where 11 mountaineers died over the course of two days. What was unique about this compared to other mountaineering disasters was that weather had nothing to do with it - which is what causes most of the deaths on Mount Everest.

K2 is simply one of the most dangerous things a person can attempt to do, and on this expedition the mountain simply decided to exert its dominance over puny humans.

Put another way, you are safer playing Russian Roulette than attempting to scale K2 - where the historical death rate is 1 in every 4 climbers.

Watched Insidious. Was pretty cool.

Watched Martyrs. Was highly ****ed up and interesting and very cool.

Watched Hush. Was pretty cool and the main chick gave me a badass female protagonist boner.

Watched You're Next. Was highly badass with awesome characters and early character drama that made me forget that I was watching a horror movie until the dude took an arrow to the knee/head. Main chick gave me a Joss Whedon Badass Female Protagonist Boner.

Started watching the Dawn of the Dead remake until realizing that it was apparently not good enough for me to remember that I'd already seen it.

Now watching Audition cause I only watched the first twenty minutes or so a few years ago and god damn did I want to finish it.

Glad you dug Hush.

Speaking of boners, when you get to "the scene" in audition expect one of the worst cases of turtle dick. Ever.

i actually have a soft spot for the dawn of the dead remake. not the best horror movie but a very fun action flick imo.
