I’ve just bought Papillon on the back of seeing the film (yes, I know), but (the film) isn’t as good as Cool Hand Luke if we’re talking about heart rending depictions of what it means to never, ever be broken. There is nothing sadder than the inevitability of one good man being beaten by a corrupt, complacent society.Posted 4 years agowigglesSubscriber

Obviously it’s personal but I thought lebowski was rubbish

Needs a few watches, you spend the first time trying to understand the point of everything but by the 2nd time you just go with the flow and it’s sheer brilliance and majesty is revealed.Posted 4 years agogrumMember
Bit of a cliche but Godfather Part II easily beats all these suggestions IMO.
Planet of the Apes (the original one) is a total classic though.
Big Lebowski is enjoyable in the way all those Coen brothers knockabout caper style films are but it’s not anything amazing. People think it’s cool to say you love it though. 😉Posted 4 years agowigglesSubscriber
I watched the big lebowski when my mate pulled out a DVD and said “watch this” at that point I had never heard of it or the Cohen brothers. So yeah my opinion of saying “that was the best film ever” was obviously biased by thinking I would look cool 😉
Plus I got a copy in the £2 tesco bargain bin, so must be really cool.Posted 4 years ago
