Now we're gettin' off the subject.

Back to movies, started watching this---

It's kinda disturbing
I've watched more than half of Bergman's output. One of the greats, no doubt.

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.
