Maus Space

I've continually had a liking for the mystical, but it wasn't until I matured a little iota that I discovered John Maus!

Am I the only one who really enjoyed Melancholia? I did emerge from the cinema blinking wearily and nursing a massive headache, feeling like I'd been through a world war, but that is par for the course with von Trier in my experience. I find all the cringing and recoiling very draining. It was the only film I'd seen where there was a trickle of nervous laughter from the audience as the credits rolled. It wasn't until later that evening that all the images came back to haunt me, along with the swelling Wagner opera prelude, and I realised I had seen something beautiful in its own way.

I have Miranda July's The Future to watch tonight, which (for some reason) has a talking cat in it.

There were certain things I liked in The Future, but as a whole I found it average. So much potential, too.

Melancholia was fantastic. What did you think of The Future? I was really disappointed. I really liked "Me and You and Everyone We Know", but I thought "The Future" was just wacky-by-numbers. The only character I gave a rats ass about was the talking cat.

Totally agree, Dean. I found the characters very static and emotionally impotent. I didn't know enough about any of them to understand/care about their bizarrely disconnected relationships. And those assholes never picked up their cat. Also it gets a demerit for not having its own 'Poop Back and Forth' moment.

Spalovač mrtvol/The Cremator is one of my favorite movies I think :sadluv:

I just watched Young Adult, the new one from Juno team Diablo Cody/Jason Reitman. While not quite as sharp, sweet, or tangy as the former, I found Charlize Theron's depressed alcoholic 'prom queen bitch' surprisingly sympathetic. Also as a bonus it is set in Mausland (small-town Minnesota), which looks comparitively similar to small-town New Hampshire, where I grew up, KenTacoHuts (Kentucky Fried Chicken-Taco Bell-Pizza Hut), and all.

I liked that movie, I bet Teenage Fanclub got paid loads for the amount of times she sung their song! Before coming away to the UK I finally got around to watching 'Hoop Dreams', pretty cool documentary for sure. The (almost) 3 hour run time seemed to fly by, which is pretty useful for someone who generally avoids films if they are much over 90 minutes.

I mentioned watching Young Adult earlier in this thread. Some of it was pretty decent :delaware:
Sadly I've not watched any movies recently.
Oh I'm excited about this release for next week:

I've seen bits of Feuillade's Fantomas serials but not a lot of these, should be fun

Oh man, I loved God Bless America. It is perhaps one of my favourite films from this year, it is silly and over the top, but so enjoyable.

I saw Love Is Colder Than Death this weekend. Not my favorite Fassbinder film, but it was interesting to see his early style.

There's something really beautiful about this scene here.
