Yep~ a girl after my own heart....foreign, lots of Miramax, mainly french, Chinese, some Japanese, very few Mexican, recently some great MidEast...(the red shoe). I don't like violence. I don't like predictability or trite endings or just pap.
Hard to find others who enjoy them. I've been known to sit through 3 movies a day, when my kids are off visiting their dad.

Comedies!!!!

I need to laugh when I'm not at work.
Anything by Monty Python alumni, and I'm on my second copy of "When Harry Met Sally". I'm a romantic at heart!

Cool! Kurosawa. Have you guys seen the Japanese Zatoichi series? He's a blind swordsman. Five Easy Pieces. Godfather 1 and 2. Place in the Sun with Liz Taylor. I love Star Wars. I dig Bruce Lee even though it's a bit cheesy. Bruce is cool. I also like the John Woo/Chow Yun Fat flicks. Tootsie. Have you guys seen Visions of Light? All about cinema lighting. Hitchcock. What's up with the movies lately? Nothing to watch. I did like American Beauty and just saw the superb Red Violin. I also love documentaries. Never seen Batman, Jurassic Park, Home Alone...etc.

Keep hearing about Shakes the Clown. Guess it is time to watch it.

A great topic!!!

For me I am a huge foreign film buff. Kurosawa is a huge influence especially the Seven Samurai. I also like his film High and Low.

Bergman films are always great especially Fanny and Alexander.

Have you guys checked out Babette's Feast? One of my all time favorite food flicks.

As far as contemporary I enjoyed the Insider, one of Pacino's better recent films.

Nicko,


I never thought I would find a Japanese film amateur here. I love Kurosawa. Seen all his films plus lots of others from lesser known directors. If you can find a film call To Live, the Japanese name escape me right now. It was made during the 50's just after the war. A wonderful film.

I have a passion for all things Japanese. I have a nice collection of Japanese porcelaine and cookbooks. Even took Japanese cooking classes.

Nicko,


I always wanted a bonsai. I never found one unfortunatly. What happenned to yours? We have a Japanese garden here with a big collection of bonsai and a tea house. Very pretty in the summer.


Back to the movie To Live was made in 1952 by Kurosawa. In Japanese it is called Ikiru. I hope you can find it, it really is a wonderful film.

I saw Dreams when it came out. I really enjoyed it. The last vignette didn't appeal to me though, too dreamy and experimental to my taste.

Black Rain, a film made in the 1989 or 1990 about the bombing of Hiroshima is worth seeing if you can find it. The problem with japanese cinema is that so few film are distributed here. You are lucky if you can see one a year. We do have a yearly festival that usually will show a few but not all are worth seeing.

Also the ballad of Nayorama is a must see again if you can find it.

That is a great movie. Loved it. And it stars that guy who's in a lot of Kurosawa's films. Have you guys seen the flick he did, but it was in Russian, surprisingly. The name escapes me. When I started watching it, I thought it was the wrong movie. Glad I stuck with it, though.

Sisi,

It all started with the Seven Samurai, and after that it was Kagemusha, High and Low, etc. What did you think of of Dreams? I enjoyed the Van Gogh vignette very much with Martin Scoresee playing the part of Van Gogh. I too have been a long time fan of all thing Japanese, and I even had a Bonsai garden for a few years until I moved. I am not too familiar with other japanese directors though, any suggestions? I did see Farewell my Concubine, did you see that?
Thanks,

Wow! Someone else who actually knows Liquid Sky!! I also love "The Wall", any japanese anime, a great Hitchcock thriller, also Salvador Dali's movie Un Cien Andalou (sp?). I really love dark comdies such as Fargo and Trainspotting as well as twisted forgien films like "City of Lost Childern".

Une Chen Andelou (sp) is a great movie, Always fun on a first date.

Kurosawa died, how old is this new film? Is it a rerelease? Hasn't he been gone for a couple of years now?
