Crash is excellent, strange and disturbing.


the cronenberg one or the more recent one?

not a big fan of either really, but i enjoyed the girly one about racism and inter-connecting lives more than the wound sex one

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'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 goblins 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 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.

Only seen Martha - really good

Warrior I watched last night. Decent but the story is proper cheese. Only get's away with it cause it's well acted. Could have easily been a striaght to DVD film. Seen people saying it's quality and stuff. It is still defo worth a watch

Man From Nowhere is me tonight

I just reckon you'll get more from it if you can get properly immersed in it. Better suited to the cinema sadly.

It's pretty gritty. Strangely compelling. Annoying lead.
