It's definitely a movie that gets better the more you watch it. I could count on my hands & toes the amount of movies that do that.

beats me but anything involving hipster must be wrong and unjust.

Wow. Bob reccemended me this a while ago... and it is absolutely shocking. How can a country in the developed world let stuff like this happen to so many people? I loved the really quiet narration by the director, it gave this documentary a very different atmosphere from most. 9.5/10


Really good remake. Didn't get the quiet wintery atmosphere quite as good as the first one, but still very good. Also I didn't really like the pool scene. Kind of a minor nitick, but I love that scene in the original so much. 8.5/10

Been going through anything Crispin Glover I haven't seen. Strangely, this is one of the ones I'd not seen.

It was a'ight. Crispin was creepy and wonderful.

Crispin Glover and his hesitant, pathetic (he plays pathetic characters) brand of weirdness is generally a bit much for me. I don't ever think I've seen a movie where I thought he did very good acting, although I guess he fit the lead part role in Willard.

L'avventura by Antonioni



Very good, but kind of drawn out at parts. Visually it's really stunning, which is one of the reasons I could sit through the drawn out parts, and the acting is good. It stars one Italy's two biggest stars. It's very existential. So far one of my favorite Antonioni. Really questions the fine line (or concept of a line) between sexuality and love.

This trailer kind of makes it sounds like a porno:

I really didn't find him especially creepy in Back to the Future; I just thought he was awkward.

Also, horrible movie though it may be, he didn't creep me out at all in Nurse Betty.
