a REALLY good movie?
    #2768671 - 06/06/04 12:44 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

Can you guys recommend a REALLY REALLY good recent/current movie- by that i mean probably within the last 5 years.

Saw lost in translation last night- I liked it, but not as much as I expected to.

The last time I saw something I loved was a documentary about "little people" i.e. elves and gnomes and fairies in Iceland. That was awesome. I like all sorts of movies, as long as they ellicit some serious emotion (be it laughter or sadness) or intellectualization.

Maybe there is just something wrong with me....I am feeling detached and cynical lately I guess....

Thanks for any good recommendations! :heart:

My favourite in the last time for this category: HERO
Awesome romantic, poetic and intellectual.

And of course: Solaris...for the quiet moments in life :wink:

Pecker, directed by John Waters, is a GREAT movie that I just saw recently. You should rent it.

City of God (is that the english title? It's a Brazilian movie)
Does Dogville classify as recent?
I was very suprised when I saw Kill Bill 2 (in a good way)

American Splendor


--------------------
In the desert
I saw a creature, naked, bestial,
who, squatting upon the ground,
Held his heart in his hands,
And ate of it.
I said, "Is it good, friend?"
"It is bitter, bitter," he answered;
"But I like it
Because it is bitter,
And because it is my heart."

Waking Life.

It's a live action movie that was painted over and is about philosophy - really wild and interesting.

Mindfulness is the aware, balanced acceptance of the present experience.
It isn't more complicated than that.
It is opening to or recieving the present moment, pleasant or unpleasant, just as it is,
without either clinging to it or rejecting it.
