Title: Ludovico cure
Post by: titoli on August 26, 2008, 12:15:16 PM
What is the movie that would make you cringe, cry, howl and beg for mercy  if they forced you to watch it?

First that comes to mind is Pretty Woman.

MELO (Alain Resnais).

Just about anything French in fact. Especially any Eric Rohmer chat fest in that horrible language.

Any of those five hour Bollywood musicals, or INDEPENDENCE DAY. Or EYES WIDE SHUT (see what I did there?).

Watching Sympathy for the Devil (1968) for a second time would probably kill me. Or make me a real fucking communist.

Bunuel's films yes,  but like I've said its been 20 years ago that I've seen them and I really don't remember them much.

Give me a must view sampler list to get me up to snuff when you have time.  O0

well, You picked among the best, but I'll admit there are another dozen which I like very much: Ensayo de un crimen, L'Age d'or, Simon del desierto, Los olvidados, Las Hurdes, Susana, El bruto, Nazarin, El angel exterminador. I like also Tristana, La voie lactée and his ironic version of Robinson Crusoe.

I just came across this thread because I just saw Gas, Food Lodging (1992) and I did a search for it on this site. What the hell, why not revive  a thread from 12 years ago  :)

It's a good movie. I give it at least  a 7.5/10 - and that's probably low; women will probably enjoy this more than men, as this is very much from a woman's perspective. If the identical movie was made about men growing up in  a shitty Western town instead of women (The Last Picture Show?) I'd probably have enjoyed it even more. This is a very well-done film, and anyone who put it on a negative list is nuts. (elsewhere he called it "terrible" and "utter nonsense." http://www.fistful-of-leone.com/forums/index.php?topic=4913.msg63627#msg63627)


Then again, the same idiot who put this movie on a negative list said he won't touch Bridges of Madison County, which is an absolutely great movie. But yeah, since it was a real women's book, i can see ho a man would be reluctant to watch the movie. But it was an unqualified masterpiece.

One thing Firecracker got right: The English Patient was indeed a real piece of shit.

here is a review  of Gas, Food Lodging from Washington Post: https://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/style/longterm/movies/videos/gasfoodlodgingrhinson_a0a7a1.htm

here is a review  of Gas, Food Lodging from NY Times: https://www.nytimes.com/1992/07/31/movies/review-film-gas-food-lodging-rueful-women-rootless-men-in-a-dreary-western-town.html

I'm just interested, as you are quite able to describe such flaws. And I can't think of much flaws in the film, at least not ones that are really distracting.

I need to gibe it another shot in order to be able to answer with some precision (I saw it only once, years ago, on a very small TV). I remember seeing a very interesting movie, but also one that felt long and left me cold the whole time. Also, remove a couple of scene (and Willem Dafoe), and you've got your typical Oscar bait melodrama. In the end, I have a much better and stronger memory of the book The Conversations: Walter Murch and the Art of Editing Film, that I read right after I saw that film.

The English Patient is the worst. I'm #2

Thanks. I did an easy joke, you made it much better.
