Curious, did anyone watch the extended cut of Tree of Life yet and what were your thoughts...

I was planning on making this a birthday gift to myself (I'm sentimental), so I have about 6 weeks before I can tell you.

I watched Notorious again a year or so ago. I have to say there are very few of Hitch's films that may be better.

Well I just spent $190 on Arrow releases, and I haven't even started on the Criterions yet.

(btw the 10% off FALL10 promo that's going for the next few days doesn't work on the Criterion sale but it does work on the Arrow stuff)

I bought some Arrow Video movies last time they had a sale at B&N. I purchased four Criterions on Thursday.

I should be getting that Bergman from the library in the next few days. Loved Le Corbeau, Wages, and Diabolique, so I'm curious about that one. Loved Fassbinder, but never got around to BAP.

Jan, was the extended Tree of Life any good?

Fuck yes! I never got Filmstruck since my roommate had it, but since he moved out I'm gonna commit to this.

Also, my B&N haul:

Arrow - Spotlight on a Murderer, Makhmalbaf's Poetic Trilogy, the Black Cat box set, the Yoshida set, and the Female Prisoner: Scorpion set

Criterion - Lone Wolf and Cub, The Lodger, Memories of Underdevelopment

It's been a busier than expected week, and this is sitting at the top of my eagerly awaited marquee, along with Other Side of the Wind and You Were Never Really Here, and now Ballad of Buster Scruggs. Hopefully, my weekend will be uneventful enough to allow me to enjoy all of these.

I intend to post about The Other Side of the Wind sometime soon, once I organize my thoughts a bit more. It's baffling to me that no one has said anything about it on the forum yet (as far as I've noticed).

I haven't written anything about it (partly) because I don't have a Netflix subscription anymore; I am looking forward to your thoughts on it, however Mac :up:
