Ah right. Well I'm late on it compared to you guys so I'm sure this post will frustrate you further

Interview with the Director. Very good quote regarding ambiguity about how the questions are always more interesting than the answers, because in film when you are shown the answers to questions that you have already imagined the answers for in your head, you're always disappointed because it's never quite what you imagined. Definitely seems to be the ethos behind Kill List and although I do feel a bit frustrated and want to tie all the loose ends up, I'm sure if we were shown what happened in Kiev or explicitly told the motivations of the cult and Jay's relationship to them that the film wouldn't be anywhere near as good. Something about the film just resonated with me, found it fascinating. And any film where you want to think about it for ages afterwards is good in my book.

Horses for courses I guess, I just found it a lot more intriguing than anything I've seen for ages.

Yes, I loved the slow silent dialogue. May even be ahead of it's time and appreciated much further down the line? One can hope.

Wached Take Shelter last night, thought it was class, loved it.

Without spoiling anything i'm really not sure how to interpret the ending, especially given the colour of the rain (should make sense if you've seen it'

Timecrimes (2007)

Dubbed Spanish film . Basically about a bloke who stumbles upon a time machine after seeing something strange in near by woods.
Ends up as bit of loop / protagonist of a series of unfortunate events and tries to undo.

Not actually that good but is watchable enough film and bit of a headscratcher in trying to find faults with the time travel malarky.

6/10

The latest Rambo film was just on 5. Saw it when it first came out but for what it is its pretty enjoyable. Fucking graphic. There's a feel good factor to watching a badguy getting graphically murked.

I quite enjoyed this, probably the most graphic action film I've seen though. The bit when he gets on that massive machine gun and fucks everyone up

Paul - 4/10 This was puerile garbage, the sole purpose of which seemed to arrogantly mock religion. Parodying religion can be funny, but it has become a tired stereotype.

From Beyond - 8/10 Pure classic 80s horror

I've been going to see some all-time classics at the BFI cinema recently.. Went to see 'Ordet' on Saturday. I don't think it'll be everyone's cup of tea, but I can't remember a film that has sucked me in so completely without me realising it. It's so slow and minimal... the camera hardly ever cuts, it just films a whole room and pans across when people enter and exit. It's almost like a theatre production. It's really sad, but witty and it looks incredible.

For those who can bear to watch pure dialogue and perfect characterisation without the need for at least 3 CGI characters and a minimum of 5 explosions and/or guns, then I would recommend giving this a go. Proper art, rather than just a cinematic experience.

I rewatched Crash (the race related one) recently and I don't think it's going to age very well. Very cheesy and some terrible acting especially from Ludacris. Thought it was amazing first time I saw it though

I was referring to the Cronenburg adaptation of the Ballard book. I actually think the film is better than the book, Ballards novella's sometimes feel a bit stretched compared to his short stories which are usually perfect. Crash is a short story stretched into a novella. But as a film it works, and its perfect for Cronenburg.

Memories of Murder (2003)

Watched this last night, it popped up on IMDB in the recommendations part so gave it a go and loved it.

Korean crime drama set in 1986, follows an investigation over four years of a serial killer bunning women in a small village. Great characters and very engaging. Quite a lot of rain which always seems to get me going plus a few flying kicks to boot. Read some reviews online since and quite a few people say that it's too long and slow but I never felt that at any point. Watch this film please. 8.4.

Have watched a couple of really good Korean films over the last week or so (Man From Nowhere, A Tale of Two Sisters). Am planning to watch The Good, The Bad, The Weird soon but more recommendations would be nice. Don't say Oldboy x

i love cronenberg to death but i thought 'crash' was just awful. the concept is right up his alley, but i'm really not a fan of the script, the acting or the direction the narrative takes (which i'm sure must come from the novella)

I rate it. No problem with the script, acting or narrative. Its very loyal to the book. Thought he really captured it all. Maybe not quite as gooder adaptation as Naked Lunch but decent effort, loads better than everything he's done post-Spider.
