Ohh ok sounds interesting, outside reading...?

I've seen Requiem for a Dream but if The Fountain is anything like it then I can't wait.
Thank you for these recommendations! ♥

Not so much academic stuff (unless you really want to, I could send you some links) but just people's theories on imdb and such :D

What are the rest of your favourite films? I love The Pianist.
violetwristsvioletwrists on January 2nd, 2010 02:29 pm (UTC)
Ohh ok, will do. I love imdb too much, haha. I especially spend too much time on their quotes and trivia section.

Ohh I have far too many! I do quite love Closer (for its characters) and films by Wes Anderson, the ever classic Studio Ghibli collection and occasionally horror films, I really liked Audition which I studied for my media exam last year (2009!).
I'm forgetting many but I can never remember on spot, have you ever seen a korean horror film called Cinderella? It was so confusing, I spent much time reading ideas on the internet about it but I still couldn't figure out/accept the ending, if you ever see it I would love to hear what you think happened, it's been seriously bothering me for some time haha.
Vysanthevysanthe on January 2nd, 2010 02:32 pm (UTC)
I never did see closer. I have been working through Anderson's stuff, I have to go see Fantastic Mr. Fox now that it's out :DD Royal Tenenbaums was really good/the suicide scene!

Audition was pretty much like a drama/comedy until the last 15 minutes! I prefer Ichi the Killer out of Miike's stuff~

I haven't seen/heard of Cinderella but I'll heck it out!

Have you heard/seen Oldboy? Messed up, but great. Chan Wook Park is an amazing director!
violetwristsvioletwrists on January 2nd, 2010 03:02 pm (UTC)
Me too! I really want to see Fantastic Mr Fox. Oh I love Tenebaums, my favourite character was Margot, loved her! Especially when she was a kid. Ugh that was such a good scene, I was like at first, ok... shaving off the beard... oh ok... suicide, yeah should have seen that one coming.

I read that in the vomit scene, the actress was one of those forgot the name, the ones that stay in role all the time. and that was her actual vomit from the scene. I haven't seen Ichi yet! I really should though, on my list now.

Ohh Oldboy, loved it! I have the trilogy with Mr Vengeance and Mrs Vengeance, I haven't watched Mr Vengeance yet. I never get around to watching it, I am terrible!
I loved the scene where he had that fight in the corridor, that was all one take, so impressive! & That guy who said nothing throughout the whole film except "you slept with your sister", ohh I had a good chuckle over that.
Vysanthevysanthe on January 2nd, 2010 11:30 pm (UTC)
Method acting? On wiki there are some pretty disturbing things about Ichi's production D:... which kind of makes it more awesome, haha.

Yeah, that corridor fight scene was amazing! Ahhh. I'm going to watch the other vengeance ones too, next week hopefully. Aha, I laughed at that slept-with-sister part. Is it bad that I figured out the twist right at the start when it says "13 years later.." and though "hey, that's just enough time for his daughter to become sexually mature."
violetwristsvioletwrists on January 3rd, 2010 12:34 am (UTC)
Haha well I suppose it should have been easy to figure it out, but I was like, nooooo no way, gross.
You've got a good mind for the film business I suppose.
