  7. Not quite. I think it is an okay film; I just don't understand it's near-universal praise as, for me, it excels at nothing. It's just a solidly made feelgood movie. Which is absolutely fine (and something many films don't achieve), but I've never quite grasped why so many people have taken it into their hearts in such a strong way.
  8. I see that Agnès Varda has died at the age of 90. It's nice to see that in the last few years she has finally been receiving the attention she rightly deserved throughout her long career. Given the longevity of her career, I would argue she might be the greatest director to appear during the French New Wave (even if she doesn't have the name recognition of someone like Godard). Her work was always distinctly hers and shot with great warmth, humanity and imagination.
  9. I know this isn't the thread to say you're wrong, but your expectations for the film were. It may feature sex and sex cults, but it isn't a film about either. It certainly isn't a film for everyone, but given your contributions to this folder over the years, I would definitely give the film another try. Like all Kubrick films, it is far deeper than any surface detail.
  10. Here's a list of my 20 favourite films that fit your criteria - https://letterboxd.com/lordcookie/list/20-favourite-single-set-films/ One film not on that list, but that normally gets a lot of love on the forum, is William Friedkin's Bug.
  11. Short Cuts is great (although I think my main enjoyment comes from being a Carver fan) but it's his smaller films I always return to.
  12. This is one of my favourite Altman films. I always preferred his smaller experimental pictures (3 Women, Secret Honor etc.) to the big ensemble dramas.
  13. I'm glad you tracked it down, and enjoyed it!
  14. It's the only 2018 film I've seen.
  15. I look forward to the live action adaptation of Home on the Range in about 12 years time. Disney is a pox on modern cinema.
  16. It's more likely that it will have been taken down by TMDb which is where Letterboxd get all their film data from.
  17. I don't really think a perfect film exists but Synecdoche, New York comes close as even its imperfections seem deliberate.
  18. So many... Until the End of the World Mind Game Time of the Gypsies The Last Wave
  19. I remember it being fairly popular as a kid (or at least seeing it regularly in the video shops at the time), but it's definitely drifted into obscurity over the years. You're right, it's not a scary ghost story at all, but I'm a sucker for those sort of small America teen movies of the period. It also helped that I watched it as a kid so it holds nostalgic value too.
  20. The Stone Tape is an interesting one. It's not really scary these days thanks to some dodgy special effects, but it's definitely one of the most interesting ghost stories of the period.
