    Found this thanks to Netflix recommendations after I watched Goodbye Solo. One of the most emotional, raw, and heart-wrenching movies I've seen in my life. This film is a perfect combination of dark humor and drama. Even though it is clay-mation, it's definitely geared towards adults. The film touches on loneliness, depression, and childhood neglect, among other things. Go see this!

    Horror Anthology film. I was entertained.

    One of the few Carpenter films that I hadn't seen.



    It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, but I have seen better.

    Going on a bit of a Carpenter-fest there Orph. Have you seen...



    ?
    Prince of Darkness gets a lot of love as Carpenter's best 'underseen' film, but I have to give my vote to this one. Great acting(Sam Neill), very Lovecraftian...and a really swell 'not-going-to-please-everyone' ending. If you haven't seen it...you will like it.

    Don't know if you've seen "HARVEY KRUMPET", but it's by the same folks and it's even on the bluray of Mary and Max. Check it out.

    Yeah, I am trying to watch every Carpenter related film that I haven't seen yet. I still have to watch Vampires, and I think, that might be it.

    I saw In the Mouth of Madness when it came out in the theater and I have a copy of it someplace. I do like that film, including that silly monster that chases Sam down the hall. Lol!

    How long before it gets remade?

    Watched a couple Hirokazu Koreeda films, the only one I'd seen before was Wonderful Life. Koreeda's now one of my favorite filmmakers.



    This film is a ****ing gem. Loosely based on the real-life incident known as The affair of the 4 abandoned children of Sugamo, Nobody Knows is a heartbreaking story of a group of small children who are abandoned by their mother and are forced to fend for themselves. It's a tragic but beautiful film that left me speechless at the end. It's also the type of film that will stay with you days after you've seen it.



    This was another beautiful film from Koreeda. Still Walking focuses on a family who reunites to commemorate the death of the oldest son. It reminded me very much of the great Ozu's films, in that it was relatively simple, used mostly stationary cameras, and focused on the repressed emotions of a Japanese family. Koreeda gives us a poignant snapshot into the lives of these people, as the eldest couple, in spite of their efforts to hide their feelings, are clearly very devastated over the loss of their son and disappointed with the lives of their other children, while their kids are also resentful of their parents and seem reluctant to take care of them, all the while dealing with their own grief over the loss of their brother. It might be too slow for some people, but if you appreciate subtle films that deliver excellent stories then you'll definitely appreciate this movie.
