- what are your favourite movies that not a lot of people have heard of?
I watch a lot of independent film…or at least lesser known movies. My all time favourite is PI, superb film about a mathematician that tries to solve pi whilst trying to work out patterns in the stiock market…sounds very dull but its amazing, the cinematography is lush (and in black and white) and the soundtrack is equally as good (featuring the likes of Autehcre, Orbital, Aphex Twin etc…). The same guy who made PI also directed Requiem for a Dream, which is a very, very harsh film to watch, but very good as well. Lost Highway by David Lynch is another firm fave as well as any Troma movies (Cannibal the Musical, The Toxic Avenger, Poultrygesit etc) just for over the top gore and laughs with political satire thrown in for good measure (some of the time)…Posted 8 years agoWhatWouldJesusRideMember
Just a few that spring to mind…
Les Visiteurs [Jean Reno. Comedy. Time travelling medieval knight in contemporary France]
Aguirre, The wrath of God. [Werner Herzog dir, Klaus Kinski. Intense study of a Spanish Conquistador's descent into mad-eyed insanity.]
Anything by Jacques Tati. Sublime and hillarious.
Casablanca. Really does need to be seen on the big screen. Amazing.
el Gato Negro, I thought Belleville Rendezvous was fantastic.Posted 8 years agonbtMember
Got them on a double header VHS tape, not watched them in ages. Harware feautres Carl McCoy of Fields of the Nephilim and Lemmy from Motorhead, I seem to recall
Yep, but not the american remake (also starring Jean Reno)
Nikita, the original french version not the american shot-for-shot remake "the assassin" starring Bridget Fonda
Oh, and a couple of early Peter Jackson films, Bad Taste and Braindead.
Not watched any of the above in ages, time to break out the video methinks!Posted 8 years ago
