I was never a big fan of Trainspotting. I didn't see it at the time so I kind of missed that train and like most Danny Boyle films, while creative and trendy at the time, it didn't age very well, both aesthetically and script-wise.

I just watched T2, though, and this one is really good.

Now that you are saying this, that is indeed puzzling, if not even disturbing ...

He's being shy about it.

It's french ...

I am too, he never rated me 10.

. . . and it's fun. I spent 3 hours in the dark with my clothes on and at the end I was entirely satisfied. The works selected and sampled were great. Tavernier's comments were great. I saw things I knew and wanted to know better and things I was completely unfamiliar with that I now want to learn more about. This piece does what Scorsese's film from 20 years ago did: it piques my interest in particular movies. Yay!

Thanks! I'll try to catch it.

Tavernier is better at talking about cinema than he is at making movies (he's still far from bad at that either). He's often doing masterclasses or talking at events about Scorsese and American Cinema. I like him.

What makes it a 10/10?

Not really.
When 2001 is for me more entertaining than Star Bores, and it definitely is, than it makes a lot of sense. 2001 is for me light entertainment, I can watch it every day, while I suffer imagining to watch Star Wars or even worse the Lord of the Rings films. Which are many people's idea of light entertainment, but surely not mine.

Actually there'a a lot of very deep sense behind these simple perceptions. Wink

You make almost as little sense as Drink.

Nope, not for me.
OUTW is slightly more fun to watch than GBU, and OUTW and GBU are more fun to watch than the other Leones, cause they are better. Maybe they are better cause they are more fun. Whatever ...

Ohh, and 2001 is much more fun to watch than Star Wars. Just to give another extreme example how things work for me.

Thatís a lot of implausible stuff, lol.

Both films are 95% implausible to me Grin
But both also work in their own world. GBU is supposed to feel cartoonish.

From a technical standpoint, OUATITW is better than GBU but the difference isn't as great as between GBU and everything that came before. I think the difference isn't enough to differenciate the two movies for most people (it could be enough for me).

GBU is easier, lighter and funnier to watch.
OUATITW is more serious, ambitious and sad.

So it really depends on your mood. I have a strong preference for OUATITW because I have a thing for ambition and it talks to me on a deeper level (while the teenage nihilism of GBU is borderline ridiculous), but I've watched GBU more often.

Youíll have to wait until I win my first Oscar. Then the floodgates will open. If you want to rush the process, n_l can cast me in his next film ...  Evil

If I don't cast you in my next film, I guarantee you I'll direct the film they'll write about your downfall.

I never watched Danger Man, and only saw the first and the final episodes of The Prisoner. I think I would have absolutely love The Prisoner if I had watched it when I was a teen.

Nah, he'll be back at some point.

Even FX wants him back: "Now isn't the time for Louis CK to make a TV show."
43  Other/Miscellaneous / Off-Topic Discussion / Re: Polanski in jail / shame on Switzerland on: November 11, 2017, 08:22:08 AM
I still haven't read anything about RR defending Louis CK, which is a bit worrying.

No, but you would have been in the perfect position, once 1894 arrived, to see everything as it came out. No one should have seen more films than you.

Are you kidding? I was already an old fart by then, telling everyone and their mother that these moving photographs were a just a stupid fad.

There were no films back then. But real life was thrilling.
