I have seen very few movies from him but so far "Three Colors : Blue" was the best one (and, despite many typical french movies mistakes, a great masterpiece if you ask me). I need to see The Doule Life of Veronique again, i remember being a bit bored at some points but also being very impressed by a few scenes.
K was definitely one of the greatest.

I like the whole trilogy but yes, Blue is probably emotionally the most involving one.

Could anybody tell which of his pre-Decalogue movies are worth checking out?

Can't really help you, but some friends saw the one about the guy who lets a movie camera take over his life and they said that was pretty good.

Watchmen (2009) - 7/10. I had the choice of IMAX or digital and I went with digital. I'm sure I made the right choice: digital makes CGI a lot more palatable. The film is well-paced and looks fantastic: I almost didn't notice how long it took to finish. A shame about the stupid plot, though. I was entertained, but I can't imagine watching the whole thing again (maybe selected scenes). The trailers in digital were a lot of fun, especially the new Michael Mann one about Dillinger.

Watchmen - 7.5/10

I could definitely watch it again. It moves quickly (like you said) which is a plus for a longer movie. I wonder how the director's cut will be...

To be honest DJ, the Public Enemies trailer disappointed me. I'm still interested in seeing it but the trailer was rather underwhelming.

Just watched the trailer on YouTube and the only thing that put me off was the digital video photography...

The action sequences were not very well edited... the way you see them in the trailer, they don't seem very involving. But let's wait for the movie, I'm still exited...

Seven Samurai-I wish I saw this before the Magnificent Seven. I enjoyed it immensely.

Persepolis was pretty good. Relates to my interest in the Middle East and where we went wrong. But a fine portrait of a girl growing up in and out of post-Revolutionary Iran. I watched it in French without realizing I could have selected English.

You guys haven't seen the trailer projected digitally: it makes a big difference. (Oh, and I hate to be the bearer of shocking news, but sometimes scenes in trailers are edited differently from the way they appear in actual release).

Gomorrah (2008) - 10/10. If you see only one film about organized crime in your lifetime . . . see this one too! Also, never plan a vacation to Naples. Here are five separate stories, with five separate casts, that have only one thing in common: the Comorra crime syndicate. Weaving the strands--but not intertwining them--allows the filmmakers to give a sense of how pervasive the organization is. Sure, you would have guessed they were involved in drugs and prostitution, but toxic waste disposal? Even haute couture? None of the 5 stories ends well for any of the lead characters, although several do escape with their lives. The Comorra is pititless, as is the lens that records all that they do. I say "records" because the illlusion of cinema verite is preserved throughout. There is no commentary directing our thoughts, no title cards to help keep the viewer oriented: the audience must stay engaged in order to make sense of what they see. It's doable, but this is not a popcorn movie, and you can't check your brain at the door.

I was referring to the content of the trailer, not the way it looked.

No shit. I don't think anyone said otherwise.

Rough Riders - 8/10 - Milius + TR Redux! How can you go wrong? You really can't. It gets a point or two taken away for the limits of its made-for-TV origins; the San Juan Hill battle in particular suffered from this given its huge scope. The movie would have looked AMAZING in widescreen or certainly in a theater. Otherwise, it's a gem: great cast, great action scenes, and some of Milius's very best screenwriting (with a degree of maturity which generally eludes him). Tom Berenger gives a ridiculously over-the-top portrayal of Teddy Roosevelt, which means he's absolutely perfect for the part; better even than Brian Keith, which I wouldn't have thought possible. Gary Busey's Joe Wheeler ("Let's get them Yankees! I mean Spaniards!") is particularly impressive, and Sam Elliot is always the ultimate badass. And the final battle is amazing. Just a very, very good film, in spite of its limitations.

"The action sequences were not very well edited . . . " Direct quote.

"the way you see them in the trailer" Direct quote.
(And according to the editing of the action scenes of Collateral, I bet they'll be far better edited in the movie than they are in the trailer, which is pretty good apart from that)

But what can you expect from someone who thinks Gomorrah deserves 10 out of 10?? And who ranks it above The Goodfellas, Casino, The Godfather and The Last Day of Johnny Boy??
