So let me start with some of my list:
Made in britain
I Heart Huckabees
The Eye (Not the forthcoming hollywood remake)
Come on educate me, i need new DVDs....[/url]
a scanner darkly, and waking life, both are gorgeous and insightful. If you've ever lived with drug people (like tweekers, or real addicts) the the movie is ultra hilarious
i really dug 300, not for the violence, but more because it was amazing to see what people can be capable of if they work together like one unit. not just in battle, but in life. i feel like the spartans had it figured out, and we lost it. course im not so into the sex with another guy aspect of spartan culture tho...
The Game - super badass. i wish i could pay for a life-changing experience like that... it was amazing.
the princess bride - naturally.

as is "Eternal Sunshie..."
Requiem for a Dream is dark....
Heres a bunch of my favourite films, and some recently-seen ones I liked, in no particular order:
The Big Lebowski
Ghost in the Shell
The Usual Suspects
ummmm, theres loads more, but thats all I can think of at the moment.
Eternal Sunshine was on Channel 4 last night - really impressed. Odd how Jim Carrey's turning out to be a pretty good actor from being quite annoying years ago (Adam Sandler managed a similar thing in Punch Drunk Love if I remember rightly)inaya wrote:I am not sure your tastes exactly or if you've seen these (sorry in advance if you have), but here are a few of my favorites from recent years: City of God, y tu Mama tambien, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Amores Perros, Requiem for a Dream, the Fountain, etc.
Really liked -
Human Nature - very funny and intelligent comedy (from Michel Gondry who did Eternal Sunshine) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0219822/
Your Friends and Neighbours (ultra-cynical relationship comedy) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0119517/
Dead Mans Shoes - low budget revenge drama, seems to slip from very silly to scarily intense with surprising ease http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0419677/
Art School Confidential - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0364955/ - essential if you've ever had to hang around with art studes for say more than ten minutes
Session 9 - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0261983/ - one of the best horrors I've seen in a long while, real psychological, disorientating stuff from the guy who did El Maquinista (the Machinist) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0361862/ bit like Jacob's Ladder but more unnerving
point blank, in the mood for love, mike leigh's naked, contempt, a band aparte, harold and maude, straw dogs, midnight cowboy, taxi driver, dead ringers, scanners, videodrome, naked lunch, man bites dog, le samourai, ikiru, seven samurai, sympathy for mr vengeance, tale of two sisters, kung fu hustle, shaolin soccer, king of comedy (chow), forbidden city cop, 3-iron, spring summer fall winter... and spring, the enigma of kasper hauser, stroszek, fitzcarraldo, aguirre, stalker, the return, persona, fear and loathing, huckabees, me and you and everyone we know, palindromes, happiness, stranger than paradise, the tin drum, ali: ANGST ESSEN SEELE AUF, maria braun, starship troopers, primer, solaris (both) walkabout, bad timing, eternal sunshine, confessions of a dangerous mind, talk to her, devil's backbone, the devil's rejects, morvern callar, the wages of fear, before sunrise/sunset, woody allen, coens, wes anderson films, zombie films, documentaries, will farrell comedies, christopher guest, 40 yr old virgin, douglas sirk's immitation of life
everything you ever wanted to know about sex
diane keaton was nice looking back in her day. cant beat annie hall.
i'm even loyal to his new movies although they are obviously going downhill, gone downhill. 'scoop' and 'matchpoint' werent disgusting or anything. but he's getting up there in age. big up the paranoid, jewish, neurotic, new york liberal, (sexual pervert) gang
also, not woody allen, but just rented "tideland"... very cool
http://www.imdb.com/gallery/ss/0410764/ ... ey=0410764
on a side note, nobody else can sample woody allen in any dubstep tracks.. i've got dibs.
these are what i've seen:
# Match Point (2005)
# The Curse of the Jade Scorpion (2001)
# Small Time Crooks (2000)
# Sweet and Lowdown (1999)
# Mighty Aphrodite (1995)
# Husbands and Wives (1992)
# Shadows and Fog (1992)
# Alice (1990)
# September (1987) (turned this one off halfway through)
# Radio Days (1987)
# Hannah and Her Sisters (1986)
# Broadway Danny Rose (1984) (never finished this one)
# Zelig (1983)
# Manhattan (1979)
# Interiors (1978)
# Annie Hall (1977)
# Sleeper (1973)
# Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex * But Were Afraid to Ask (1972)
# Bananas (1971)
one of my favorites. any music lover should be able to appreciate it.
radio days is a similar format, but more charming and less quirky
shadows and fog is one the most slept on gems
