    Naked Lunch? I can think of at least two things wrong with that title.

    Indeed. Not the highest quality documentary, but the story more than makes up for all its flaws. Such a powerful and sad story. I loved it.

    I have no idea how I feel about it. I don't think I've ever had such a visceral reaction to a movie before.

    It's been a few hours and I still feel a little sick to my stomach.

    After seeing the trailer a few months ago I was excited to finally netflix the disc. It was Chinese, mysterious, epically shot, looked like some good action choreography, decent rotten tomatoes rating, etc., typically something I'd love. Sadly the infatuation was short-lived.

    They forced too many characters into the mix too quickly--all suspicious; all stiff and uninteresting, all with the exact same voice and facial expressions--and I got lost and went numb 5 minutes in and ejected and sealed it for return. Decided the next day to give it another shot and after carefully peeling it back out managed to make it through to the end--but on the fastest speed that still carried sound. It was too long, too stuffy and serious, never fun or interesting, and with emotionless characters that were impossible to like, know, or care about even to the end.

    I watched the 'preview' version of this.



    Honestly, the only difference that I noticed from the theatrical cut was the ending. Nothing too different. Anyways, it's still one of my favorite Hitchcock movies and I have been meaning to read the novel, which was written by the same author who wrote the novel that served as the basis for The Talented Mr. Ripley film.

    Hahaha! I know want to re-watch the Ripley movie.

    I actually had that thought while I was watching it. "This would probably be better with a big group."

    Think the Town was mildly overrated, still it's a very good film. Not sure why Affleck gets all the hate...guy is relatively talented. See Reindeer Games Adgy, you missed the Xmas window, but still...
    I'm pretty indifferent to Affleck. I mostly find him likable because he's so willing to make fun of himself with Kevin Smith. Both of the movies he's directed I thought were good but not great. I'll watch Reindeer Games eventually.

    Please do.

    the better compendium for the Naked Lunch movie is the book Interzone, if you can find it... i don't know if it's still in print. but it's a lot of the working stuff prior to to Kerouac and Ginsberg helping him through the actual novel. the movie is sort of a metatext type deal in that Interzone and Burroughs' real life are kind of fused together and you get this story about a junkie who goes to Morocco to write a novel about a junkie who goes to Morocco to write a novel... etc. and the motif of killing Joan twice is the impetus for and proof of his being a writer bookends the piece because he himself cited that he'd have never become a writer had he not killed her.

    i'm still torn on whether or not i think this movie is any good. it's Cronenberg... it's VERY Burroughs in it's soul... but it isn't EXACTLY Naked Lunch. but then again, this sort of möbius frame is far more compelling than the original book.
    Good to know. Yeah, I'm really interested to listen to Cronenberg's commentary for this film, which is why I'm tempted to just buy it now. I will check out Interzone, as well. I don't suppose you saw that Burroughs documentary that came out last year (I think?), did you? Anyone else see it? I've never really been able to get into Burroughs. Tried listening to some of his spoken word stuff in high school, too, thanks to his working with Ministry and Kurt Cobain, but it never really did much for me. I think I still have "The Priest They Called Him" somewhere, though. Might give it another shot.

    It was just little things. I don't want to make it sound like I didn't like the movie. I just feel like I knew what was going to happen before any of it happened (which I blame on the trailer and seeing it fifty times or whatever) and felt like I've seen the same story done better. Even though I can't tell you where.

    I've always loved films centered around hitmen/assassins, and these two flicks did not disappoint. Very entertaining and engrossing. It just sucks that there aren't a ton of good movies in this genre. Hopefully I can find some more.
    I really like the original Bangkok Dangerous, too. Never seen Beyond Hypothermia, but glad you liked it. I see it used pretty frequently and have been curious about it.

    I enjoyed that movie. Thought it was kind of over-the-top ridiculous fun.

    I haven't seen that yet, but I bought that two disc edition at Big Lots for $3 a year or so ago.

    The Man From Nowhere is an absolutely BRILLIANT film! Top notch thriller/crime drama about a man trying to rescue a little girl. I don't think there was a second where I wasn't engrossed.

    Man, I ****ing love Korean films.

    also, I was stunned when I realized that the main actor also played the son in Mother (another brilliant Korean movie). Bin Won really is a great and versatile actor.

    Sorry m'man. Was in a bad mood that first night which is why I gave it another try. Honestly tried both times to buy in but just couldn't. Liked the characters even less the next day. lol

    SWEET. Netflix has this on streaming and was wondering about it. Will watch the first chance I get.
