Thank goodness - I thought it was just me!

Ah, but I've never sat down on an evening with my glass of wine and thought, "Ooh goody! *now* I can watch Klaus Kinski being completely barking in a really disturbing way" ;-)

Re: Filmimplist Conversations

That boat-hauling scene is just horrifyingly ridiculous and unbelievable. I would watch Fitzcarraldo again just for that, but they are weird films, pretty unappealing in many ways.

Re: Filmimplist Conversations

My first Herzog was Aguirre Wrath of God (my brother usefully bought me this and Fitzcarraldo as an Xmas present one year). It has taken me certainly five years to pluck up courage to watch...

Re: Filmimplist Conversations

When I watched it the other day, I found one of the most terrifying bits was the ending with the wolves emerging into the house: it's meant to be triumphant and the girl's self-realisation and...

Re: Filmimplist Conversations

I agree it doesn't fully work, but in essentials it pretty much delivers on all counts. The younger members of my family who've seen it, even though they've seen better special effects, are more...

Re: Filmimplist Conversations

I return to my desk just now and find a DVD of The City of Lost Children sitting there (clearly on loan to my son), and remember hearing good things about it. And then have a hunt here and find that...

Re: Filmimplist Conversations

JM, I notice you've seen Horton Hears A Who recently but (unusually) there's no comment on it. I've been holding back on getting it from Blockbusters but I'm not sure why. What did you make of it?

This is my classic memory of Langella, thirty years ago. He's wonderful;

We were given a £50 LoveFilm voucher for Christmas. Haven't signed up yet - the advice seems to be to read the small print?

Re: Filmimplist Conversations

I really like The English Patient too, and The Talented Mr Ripley, but my abiding 'memory' is that he was a great script-writer for Grange Hill during the days I watched it rather a lot.

Edit: it...

Definitely a Bale-fan here (having watched Newsies again just last night and Howl's Moving Castle the day before - I think I've watched 15 of his films all together ;-)). Of Herzog I've only seen...

bill, I notice from your Film list that you gave Rescue Dawn ****0. I haven't heard much about this in reviews - and am unsure whether it's been released in the UK as yet: but there was a grim...

Hurrah! It's just an endearing little film. I won't love it forever, I'm sure, but it's a cheerer-upper.

Thanks for the tip-off, Adr. It is a great film: I last watched it a few years ago with my kids (reviewy thing here) (http://palimpsest.org.uk/forum/showthread.php?t=649), so I'll be getting the DVD...

Trouble is - should anyone (like me) want to watch Le Boucher (subtitled), or Indochine (good film, I know), or Like Water For Chocolate etc etc, it's a matter of keeping at least one other family...

Aquablue, was that a new version of Logan's Run you rated as :turd: (I heard there was a re-make coming out) or the 1976 version?
