Not yet but it sounds right up my alley.

Yeah, get it high up on your watch list. I saw it in theaters twice, the second time I was absolutely blasted off an edible and it was probably the greatest film experience of my life

Those Magnificent Men in Their Flying Machines (1965)

Old and dated, but hilarious as ****. Racial stereotypes abound, and there are some good names in it - Terry-Thomas, Eric Sykes, Tony Hancock, Benny Hill and Robert Morley - a great laugh, silly and slapstick but very enjoyable.

Hmmmm. Well I was curious since I hadn't seen it for about 20 years so re-watched it this weekend. I understand why it's labelled as controversial now (not sure if it was back when it came out).

Not going deeper into the complexities of the film, I just have to say it was quite uncomfortable to watch all that violence against women. Apart from that, it's sharp and funny as well as deeply sad. I understand completely how it would have captured my attention back then to explore his filmography. However, not sure if I would return to it very soon. I'm much more fond of his softer, kinder films.

Morbius! Look, Marvel’s fantasias are over. Copied the plots of many past series! Rated 3 out of 10

Bullet in the Head - A group of friends from Hong Kong get involved with crime, flee to Vietnam, and get caught in the war. One of the most chaotic, bat**** films I've ever seen, like you're watching a real war break out. Pretty crushing ending and massacre scenes. Also a lot of really impressive scenes where Woo directs what looks like 1000+ people.

One of his only classic era movies I've yet to see and I should really fix that. Sounds amazing.

Yes. I think the opening scene makes it abundantly clear that this is not a protagonist you want at any moment to find yourself sympathizing with, like ML precludes that as a possibility.

I want to rewatch Life is Sweet. Really loved that one.

From what I can remember, Naked was a good exploration of its characters. I agree it's deeply sad and while I wouldn't call the movie misogynistic, its characters certainly are. I just assume Mike Leigh doesn't condone his characters behavior and we can safely conclude the movie is mostly about arsewipes that should be in jail.

Unfortunately, while I love David Thewlis and this was his big break, his character in this movie becomes annoying to watch (imo). I feel like I can kinda remember this type or parts of these personality traits in people in the 90s and not in a good way.

It's a good movie, but I've no urge to watch it again any time soon.
