Saw Jay Edgar. Thought it lost momentum towards the end, but was otherwise excellent. Very interesting character!

What is world cinema?

Saw "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy" yesterday. Was excellent. Gary Oldman as usual, himself. Not a single expression the whole film. Recommended!

Yeah I'm a fan of non Hollywood films. Usually I don't watch Hollywood films. 90% of them are crap anyway. Akira Kurosawa is my favorite director, and Toshiro Mifune is one of my favorite actor. Love their combo.

I'm very much into "World Cinema", if that's what we're calling it. I'm also into American Independent Cinema, which (although it's a loose term) probably accounts for most of the films I end up watching.

Nice to see Lynch mentioned, I saw Blue Velvet (for like the 9th time) at a retrospective in London on Saturday. For me, the greatest film ever made.

yes,lynch is one of the best American cinema has to offer.Really like Blue Velvet myself.And Mullholland drive and The elephant man are my other favorite works by him.
Anyone saw 'Tree of Life'?i have to catch it.only heard good things about it.

yes.all Malick's films are about visuals and storytelling rather then their plot.
almost all of his movies have been nominated for best cinematography for most of the awards.

Badlands is another of the great American films, poetic and heavily influential on later indie cinema. Still haven't seen Tree of Life, it's on my large DVD pile that I'm slowly working through.

Also, at the weekend, I saw a great documentary, Project Nim. It's the most recent film by James Marsh, who directed Man on Wire (a masterpiece). It's about a chimp who a group of American scientists tried to teach sign language in the 1970s. It's a bizarre story, and I think ultimately is more a documentary about the cruelty of animal research than about Nim himself. And some of the people involved in the project seem very, very strange.

Haven't seen Tree of Life but I have wanted too since I heard of it. Malick is awesome and the cast looks good.

Speaking of 'world cinema' recently I've watched Gamorrah (yet again, cool film), The Class (for the first time, interesting film) and Un Prophete (for the third time, again it's just a cool film). Next up for me are the Mesrine films.

I heard about Project Nim but haven't had a chance to see it yet. Would you recommend it? One documentary I saw recently based around animal cruelty was The Cove which was about dolphin hunting in Japan. Really great watch, they went against authorities and filmed so much footage that they weren't meant/allowed too.

from the top of my mind i will recommend these movies:
Alejandro González Iñárritu triology of death,amores perros is the best of the them..rest two are english movies: babel and 21 grams.
i also find Synecdoche, New York by charlie kaufman was also awesome.
L'Appartement and malena were a good watch.especially monica belluci.

and for any one who has ever tried narcotic substance...you have to,have to watch this movie..enter the void.

Oh yes, I'd definitely recommend it, fascinating film. I remember liking the Cove too, and yeah, it almost feels like a spy movie at times! I genuinely think we're entering a fantastic period for documentaries, with people like James Marsh, Kevin MacDonald, Werner Herzog etc... working regularly to explore fascinating subjects.

I don't know how I've avoided Enter the Void until now. Gaspar Noe is an interesting director - I remember writing an essay on Irreversible at Uni and being totally devastated by that film (and I still haven't quite made up my mind whether it is commendable or exploitative). I'll try to watch Enter the Void very soon.

Haha. Bollywood do have a few excellent movies. You just have to put aside the usual love triangle bullshit films and dig deep. Ravneet has recommended me a few good ones. Black Friday, Satya, "D", Company, Sarkar, Kaante. I love Anurag Kashyap and Ram Gopal Varma's films. They're my favorite Indian directors.

Oh and Sanjay Leela Bansali too. Devdas, Black and Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam are good films!

Those days are long gone man, nowadays you'll be lucky if you can sit through half an hour of RGV film. Besides the industry is all about slapstick humor nowadays, totally lost its charm.

Yeah that's right.Ramu has totally lost his mojo all his new movies are garbage.

Work of few new directors who don't make movies under big banners is watchable.Rest is just trash.

Saw a few Korean films in the past 2 days.

I Saw The Devil, Yellow Sea and The Chaser. Watched "The Chaser" twice in a day haha. Fantastic films. I highly recommend it to you guys. They're epic.

Might need to watch Yellow Sea again though, as it got confusing in the middle and I got lost of what was going on, but from bits and pieces here and there I managed to figure it out, I think. But really, see those 3 films. See their ratings if you don't believe me.
