Well the last two films I watched were 'the fighter' and 'middle men' both of which you should watch if you haven't already. I also watched Cemetery Junction which is decent. I'll try and think of some more to add to the thread

I dont think anyone has mentioned A Prophet, French Film about the Corsican Mafia



- until Wenger moves on, they'll always be the also-rans in the major competitions. A club in elite purgatory. Always good enough to make it to the big race, never fast or smart enough to push over the finish line in first place. That's all about the manager. Until he changes, Arsenal fans will continue to celebrate glorious failure.

Memento, made by the same lads as inception you might've seen it but not many people I know have, which surprises me. One of my favourite films.

Yes a prophet is good pp although rather long, but Gomorrah is better. Gomorrah is the best Mafia film I have seen. I'm still working my way through Romanzo Criminale the series which isn't strictly about the mafia but is as good as the Sopranos in my view. Another good French film although dated now is 'la haine'. Also, a decent French indie film is called 'la classe', about a french school, that's on sky indie sometimes. Another film I've enjoyed and watched again is 'neds' which is about scottish hard case kids.

yes CD I agree Gomorrah is better, but Prophet unusual because it deals with Corsican mafia in a french Prison.
The book of Gommorah is better than the film, the guy who wrote it is still in hiding

anyone like Mike Leigh films? they're my favourites. His last one 'Another Year' is one of my absolute favourite pieces of work of all time, any genre.

Christmas is a good time for long films, so five of my favourite long films are

Braveheart
Chinatown (dont watch the sequel though, its sh8t)
and Once Upon a Time in America
Ghandi
and finally
Das Boot - the last one is the best war film I have ever seen except maybe

Downfall - which everybody pretty much knows
and The Pianist.

And also , a film you must watch of you havent before

A Beautiful Mind - some people say Russel Crowe cant act so watch him in that film and prove them wrong.

And if you like Russell Crowe, and long films,

how about the greatest epic action family film ever, in my view, Gladiator. Cant be beaten.

I like Mike Leigh. Haven't seen many of his newer films but loved Naked and Career Girls.

And of course the two plays made for tv, Abigail's Party and Nuts In May. I think I prefer Nuts In May nowadays. The two central characters are just so ludicrous though people of that ilk weren't that uncommon in the late 60's and early 70's.

I never really notice how long a film is, surely if you notice that then it's not really engaging.

Rock n' Rolla - dumb title but a great watch. Personal favorite.

Aside from that, Layer Cake, Snatch, Libertine, Man on Fire, There Will Be Blood, and City of God are all good as well.

If you're looking for foreign stuff, Flammen & Citronen is really good (about Danish resistance fighters in WW2, basically these two guys go around capping off N.azi Officials).

Naked is a disturbing film isnt it. A big departure from everything else he's ever done really. I dont really understand what he was getting at with Thewlis' character. But it was certainly entertaining. Theres that very pretty Scottish actress in it, isnt there, who unfortunately is a bit mad and invites Thewliss to her house then throws him out again. All very strange.

Abigails party is a classic, Life is Sweet is a bit similar, Alison Steadman plays a similar part - its one of his better ones. Another good one I think is Bleak Moments, its his first or second I think. About a woman in a staid 1960s existence, who is very bored. And her disasterous social life.

Ref film length, i like the sense of locking myself away and watching an EPIC film, like Ghandi for example, whereby watching it gives you a sense of achievement when you get to the end. Once Upon a Time in America, which takes in the entire life of several people, is a film that deserves to be Epic, and is Epic. There is, however, nothing worse than someone making a long film that doesnt need to be long, to give it a sense of the epic when it doesnt deserve it. Pulp Fiction springs to mind. What a load of b*llocks that film is. Jackie Brown, another of Tarantinos' sh*t films. Could have got it out of the way in 1.5 hours and it would have been less painful for all concerned. Although I do like the bit where De Niro shoots Bridget Fonda in the stomach for taking the p*ss out of him.

Snatch is a great film. Everything you want in a film. Brad Pitts Irish accent has me falling about any time I hear it.

Layer Cake I thought had all the ingredients for a decent film but no soul to it. I like there will be blood because the oil aspect was interesting historically but I didnt really get the human aspect to the conflict between the priest and Daniel Day Lewis. and I dont think the director did really either. They just needed a story for the film.

City of God is brilliant. Anyone who hasnt seen it, they should go and see it tomorrow, if only for the soundtrack.

Ah Tarentino, the man who has watched so many films he doesn't know how to make one of his own. Bit like the Simpsons but that's gloriously funny. Is there one Simpsons episode that isn't a rip off of something else?

But I actually liked Jackie Brown.

That's what I liked about Naked, it wasn't what you'd expect from a Mike Leigh film. Kept waiting for it to turn into a riot of laughter but it just kept getting darker. Abigail's Party is dark too but it's leavened by the humour.

The Wild Bunch, that's a long film and I think the ultimate Western.

I watched Snatch again last week and your both right. It`s got everything you`d want in a Brit gangster flick. Alan Ford (Brick Top) is truely a `orrible cnut, one of my favourite villains. He also played Stings barman in Lock, Stock.
The Boris the Blade character is also outstanding, IMO.

Think I saw it but I can't remember it.

Think that's when Leone started to take himself too seriously. It was his "I want to be Tarkovsky moment".

There's another great Western where the "hero" drags his own coffin around with him. It's quite insane but I can't recall its name.

Nuts in May - brilliant and very believeable.Candice Marie and Keith, even hearing them say the names has me in stitches.

Culpepper Cattle Co is a great western. I still enjoy Billy the Kid with Dylan, I dont know why Dylan is in it, I dont think he does either, but ignore that, its the most elegaic western ever.

No Country for Old Men.

But! But its the films of Almodavar with the wonderful Penelope Cruz, and the other spanish guy, that makes Pan's Labrynth, Orfanato, and Devils Backbone that are some of the finest films made in recent times.

Actually I’m the leading movie buff here - I only watch films - never TV - I’ve seen everything you can think of
and can spot garbage which is 99.9% nowadays of cinema, a mile off. I left a long post on a similar thread recommending films and leaving about a million links to free movie sites. I’m not being obnoxious, but I really know my stuff and I’ll throw a quick list of what has rocked my boated in the last month. Bearing in mind, choice is limited as the corporations are dumbing everything down to turn people into complete @#$%&’ idiots. So movies with a brain are hard to come by but I’ll give it my best shot.
1 J Edgar Hoover (Great biop played by Di Caprio)
2 Monster (Fantastic invasion film with a brain)
3 Human Centipede 2 (Ultimate in sickness)
4 Midnight In Paris (Owen Wilson role plays Woody Allen - returns to his best in ages)
5 Something’s got to give (Larry David in the woody roll this time)

6 Ides Of March - (predictable political election drama - but the greatest cast on earth with Phillip Seymore Hoffman, Paul Giamati and George Clooney.

7 The Guard. Irish Comedy with Brendan Gleeson and one of my favourites of all time, Don Cheadle. Brilliant film. The scene where Gleeson starts winding up Cheadle by pretending to be racist is worth the price of admission alone.

8 50/50 is a great film, but not everybody’s cup of tea - they dealt with the tough subject matter subtly enough to just about pull it off.

F,uck this, I’ll end up waffling forever so I’m going to throw you pearls here of free stuff and films not even released in the cinema yet. Here you will find every film ever made basically.

Harold and Kumar are the best braindead comedy films of all time, better than American Pie. If you watch one and dont find it funny, you need to watch it again. The scenes with Dougie Howser in are literally comic genius. Myself and Tom agree with many things on issues of taste, and Harold and Kumar are one of them.

'WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT KEVIN' I turned Mad Jens onto it and he enjoyed it. Quite slow think piece; more for us oldies, I'd say. Its about a woman flashbacking on her destroyed life after her son does a high school massacre. Very powerful stuff: more for old f,arts like Padre, Weedz, Eduardo, myself, I'd say. Not much action - just a great think piece.

The Conformist (1970) Political statements and some of the best cinematography I've seen, ever.

Women on the verge of a Nervous Breakdown (1988) Funny and dark

Escape From the Planet of the Apes (1971) philosophical discussions disguised by action

The hunted (1995) Some Christopher Lambert drek with excellent (as in realistic) swordplay. there is one fight that takes place on a bullet train that is awesome!

Memories of Underdevelopment (1968) Cuban Film that will be hard to source but it's worth it if you can find it.

Did I claim it was? As for George Lucas, he's like Wenger, an economist, not a director.

Tarantino has watched about 10,000 films and stolen scenes from most of them. He'll call it homage, I call it lack of imagination. He's no genius, as some claim.

Your choices though are very interesting. The Conformist is a very good film.

Probably the only decent film on over xmas.

Though the wife's family recorded In Bruges, which I've heard is good, and will probably watch that on New Year's Day.

In Bruges is mildly amusing. Borrows the idea from Tarantino I'm afraid, of hitmen enjoying mundane day to day experiences between killing people.

In Bruges is magic, lots of swearing so extra points for that.

Pulp Fiction is my favourite of all time.

After moving house recently I found a box of DVDs. Watched The Sting, The Hustler and Colour of Money. Great films.

[quote hippogunner][quote DotComrade][quote hippogunner]Ah Tarentino, the man who has watched so many films he doesn't know how to make one of his own. Bit like the Simpsons but that's gloriously funny. Is there one Simpsons episode that isn't a rip off of something else?

No idea is original. Ask George Lucas.

Did I claim it was? As for George Lucas, he's like Wenger, an economist, not a director.

Tarantino has watched about 10,000 films and stolen scenes from most of them. He'll call it homage, I call it lack of imagination. He's no genius, as some claim.

Your choices though are very interesting. The Conformist is a very good film.[/quote]

I dont really care if they're his ideas or not. I like his films, that will do for me.

Horrible Bosses is ace. I'd ruin Jennifer Aniston for all other men in that film....or cum in my pants within ten seconds.

Thats good to know mate, good to know.

I was reading an interview with Aniston in Empire magazine the other week and she admitted that theres nothing that gets her moist at the gusset more quickly than a stella-addled 40 year old football supporter from Devon.

I'm younger than Aniston, I'd be doing her a favour.

She should consider herself lucky to be having a slightly overweight premature ejaculator wamts to get it on for her.

Just watched Coen Brothers True Grit, excellent wonderful performances by all the actors



- until Wenger moves on, they'll always be the also-rans in the major competitions. A club in elite purgatory. Always good enough to make it to the big race, never fast or smart enough to push over the finish line in first place. That's all about the manager. Until he changes, Arsenal fans will continue to celebrate glorious failure.
