oldboy and irreversible
but if your into the asian cinema circle, its a tad bit over appreciated or overrated, easilly the highest rated most talked about movie, well along with sflv, especially being so similar to other movies like green fish
I means under-appreciated by a worldwide audience. SadistiK1 was honestly the only other person i have seen post anything about this movie, anywhere.
I thought Lady Vengance was weak, personally. Definitely not up to par with the First or oldboy
why i forgot to mention this is beyond me...
my favorite film of 2005:
- head-on (turkey)
any of you seen it?
I heard High tension was suppose to be good?
It was never released here, though.
sounds challenging, but i have a thing for films that get even better when reflecting back on them
what's your fave lynch?
Blue Velvet and of course Eraserhead...
And to the guy who asked bout Haute Tension, yes its great. One of the best horror movies in years, just dont watch it dubbed, make sure its subtitled.
Yea, bad voiceovers bug the hell out of me. I ordered it from the US amazon and am getting it shipped here, so i assume it will be the subtitled version.
you think so? I thought once I found the pace of the film it was entertaining to the end. The first 15-20 minutes were slow, but after that it kept moving, I thought.
Ive watched a fair amount of older films... Kurosawa, Bergman, etc and this is literally the hardest movie to sit through that Ive seen in years. My girlfriend was pissed at me for making her sit through it lol. I can see why its so acclaimed, but I dont know if Id watch it again. The directing is wonderful, but it didnt entertain me.
this is rapmusic.com, how many people do u think on this board watch korean movies regularly?, on movie boards, or asian movie boards is the only place you will find talk about it, sflv is a very good movie, as good as oldboy or sfmv?, certinely not, but those are exceptional movies,
have you seen the movie green fish, it has alot of similarities to bittersweet life, i feel its a better movie, it doesnt have the action bittersweet does, but its a more touchign story
tie between Seven Samurai and Throne of Blood
hardest movie i ever had to sit through was andrei rublev...i didn't make it, i struggled through about an hour then fell asleep, woke up, watched another 15 minutes, fell asleep again...so i gave up. tarkovsky has a knack for pushing your patience to about 135% of it's max capacity. But, he makes beautiful, moving films
Ah, and no, i haven't actually seen Green Fish. I'll try to get hold of it on your recommendation.
And Meh, i thought sflv was pretty average. But then again, the cinema down London was packed with asians and i was 10 minutes late so i got in during the credits which meant that i had to sit bang smack in the front.
Maybe i'll rent it, again.
my favorite is The Good, The Bad and The Ugly...
other favorites are:
Y tu mama tambien
city of god
run, lola, run
elevator to the gallows
theres probly a few more, i'm not sure. i havent seen enough foreign films, i've been meaning to catch up on it
lol@bad education....yea, that's a good film. i just didn't like seeing my nigga gael in drag.
others that weren't mentioned:
sex and lucia
su excelencia(although 40 years old, it does not feel dated.)
i'm not scared
in case you overlooked post #24...
i very strongly recommend head-on (2005) out of turkey, a film that definitely hasn't gotten enough attention here in the states for whatever reason
here's the trailer: http://movies2.nytimes.com/gst/movi...eidQ3D10Q26ampQ3BvendoridQ3D225&title=Head-On (not very well-done, however... too much music and not enough bits of dialogue)
great place to start if you want to catch up on some foreign viewing
"MANON DE SOURCE" -(french flick)
that shits the dopest most thugged out foreign flick i ever seen.
yo... it got a back story from the movie it was a sequel to... but that movie was a flop
it got the most gangsterest theme song ever...
this is the french equivalent to the godfather
Saw High tension, i recommend, too. Movie was tight.
don't think i seen this mentioned yet, which is somewhat surprising...but Harakiri. great story telling and incredible black and white cinematography.....brahman, you would jizz in your pantaloons.
and word@ head-on.
