The Place Promised in Our Early Days (2004)

Stellar animation. Interesting plot, although arguably not too emotionally involving. I liked it a lot. Just a bit more than 5 Centimeters Per Second.

Sorta rewatched Europa (ie talked through it, enjoying the prettiness) and actually rewatched The Shining last night. No exaggeration, The Shining gets scarier and scarier each time I see it. Traumatizing.

I watched the first 30 minutes of "Bright Star" about 40 times in the last 36 hours.
I wonder what happens in the end

A Single Man is utterly stunning, visually, but to me it lacked depth. I also disagree with what people are saying about it being a love story first, and a homosexual one second - that it could quite easily have been a heterosexual relationship between the two characters, and without such an age gap. It couldn't, and they push the gay thing as far as they can.

This FINALLY came out here. I'm going to see it this weekend, come hell or high water. Unfortunately, it's not playing at my theater, so I have to pay, but I think it'll be worth it.

I haven't seen it yet, but is this surprising? It's based on a book written by a gay author and the director is gay as well. I figure that the homosexual element is pretty central. Also, the book was written during the Gay Liberation movement of the 1960s and was meant to draw attention to the cause. I think de-emphasizing that would have been disingenuous to the intentions of the author. I could just be talking out of my ass though.

Precisely, and that's exactly what I was expecting.

I just disagree those who have waved away the homosexual element, deeming it unimportant.

I've just finished both Dead Calm which was just an average thriller and the much better Repulsion from Roman Polanski, it was a great film and although not as good as Chinatown was still quite good.

I watched 3 movies last night.

The Crucible- Well acted and shot. DDL is awesome
Your Friends and Neighbors- Not my type of film
The Ninth Gate- Extremely underrated. Polanski did a great job with it.

I haven't seen Your Friends and Neighbors but LaBute's In the Company of Men is absolutely brilliant. It may not be your 'type of film', but its perspective on the intricacies of conflicting human wants and needs is amazing, incisive, and frightening. I think it's hilarious, personally, but it's not one of those 'identify with characters' sorts of deals. It's searingly honest, and to sugar coat it would be to lie.

The Holy Mountain was very much one of those identify with the characters sort of films. I am pretty sure that Jodorowsky's character was modeled after me.

I plan to watch In the Company of Men at some point. It's in my netflix queue. I just didn't like the overall feel of Your Friends and Neighbors. Its an okay film but not something I would go back and watch again. It had it's moments for me but they were few and far between. The scene in the sauna was probably the most memorable.

Add some trippy images and cartoon characters covered in blood to that and you got the film.
