x balancing act Vertical Ray of the Sun. It is a foreign film perhaps set in Hanoi. This film is totally eye candy. Each scene is saturated with color. Sexual tension is threaded in and out through almost each scene.

x Jess Oh I think I've heard of that one. Or maybe it was a Korean one I'm thinking of. Something like that anyway. Sounds cool..

Ghost in the Shell




Have you watched "Avalon", the live action movie filmed in Poland with a Polish cast by the same director of "Ghost in the Shell"?

x Jess Yes I believe I did, but I have a hard time remembering it. Either I didn't care for it, or fell asleep watching it..

Maybe I'll give it another shot..

x Billy_Tascademo Don't watch it under the influence.

It is very slow paced, and none of it will sink in if you are not attentive.

  

It's kind of like Tarkovsky's Stalker, but with crazy moments of CGI madness.

x Das Behaelter I think "plan 9 From Outer Space" has to be the all time best flick.

x Marc Jess - shouldn't THX 1138 be here ?

I liked a lot of things about that movie. Pretty interesting to see how George Lucas went from 'brilliant prospect' to 'grizzled schlockmeister'.

For the life of me, I don't understand why multi-hundred-millionaire boomers destroy their legacy by making garbage films.

Why why why ?

Anyway, I liked the 'sitcom of the future', that THX and LUH watched, I think, in that movie. I can remember quite a bit of it, even though I saw the thing, like, 20 years ago. That's usually a good sign.

x Jess the thing about Lucas is that the storyline is sometimes obvious and one dimensional but maybe the process of watching it is interesting. It's all about sound design and minimal visuals with this.

x Billy_Tascademo The best?

Hmmmm...

The conquistador toads vs aztec salamader sequence is up there...on some kind of cultural pinnacle.

I think 'most entertainingly ridiculous'.

It's better than Santa Sangre, at any rates.

You know, I'm sure, that Jodorowski was set to direct Dune, but the project was taken up my Lynch. Salvador Dali was pegged to play the emproror of the known universe(!)

I think he's currently working on a sequel to 'El Topo'...
