Great stuff. It might try to tackle too many topics but definitely eye-opening and very interesting.
I got a flyer of this movie. It's from 10th of December in Shibuya. I might go but 145 minutes sounds too long... Anyone here saw Mondovino? It was also too long.

The Corporation, saw that a short while back. Interesting.

 

I liked The Insider as well.

Wached "Saw II" last night. A bit disturbing but not a bad watch, sort of along the lines of seven. Some nasty scences though!

The last film I saw was one them road safety jobs you get when you renew your drivers' licence. Lots of gore, but no story to be honest!

 

Last proper film I saw was Kurosawa's Heaven and Hell. Highly recommended.

Did you do something naughty Mr Wiggles (to have to sit through that)?

 

I need to get mine renewed soon and I will need to sit through something as I got done for speeding.

Mighty Wind really enjoyed it.

 

I thought Insider was quite boring if I remember correctly.

God yes, wasn't it awful.

 

Ciggies - they're not good for your health. (Cor, shit, I never knew that!) There seem to be rather a lot of these kind of propaganda films - The Cider House Rules made abortion seem like such a good thing that I wanted to get one, and another one called 'New Orleans Trial' or something in Japanese was a bit down about guns. Very simple fare.

 

We saw Changing Lanes last night. I was quite impressed that they made a fantasy thriller with lawyers in it that had a certain level of moral realism.

Also saw the Truman Show the other day. It was pretty good. We all have our paranoid days (don't we??), and the film captured that feeling very well. I saw a bloke yesterday out of my car window who I keep seeing around, and I think he's following me, although he's got his 'coincidence' act down very well...

Haha ocean i know what you mean about the Truman Show, everytime i think i'm being watched i remember the movie... it really makes you think doesn't it.

 

I saw Hotel Rawanda last night. Might have already been mentioned? I recommend it, anyone who doesn't know about what happened in Rawanda should definitly watch it. It was of those sad movies where you really think about how lucky you actually are, and how inhumane people can be. I think the truth of the story really makes the point. Who else has seen it?

Hotel Rwanda, yes a sobering movie that one but definitely worth seeing it.

I was in bed watching the Virgin Suicides on TV last night and fell asleep halfway through! Can someone tell me what happens in the end?
