I agree. I really liked part 1 but part 2 was a bit flat. I attribute part of this because of the subject matter of part 2 compared to the Cuban Revolution (triumph vs Che's idealistic downfall) but it still had the opportunity to do much better. I thought the ending was great though.

I just saw White Ribbon is available for streaming on Netflix. I'll have to watch it sometime this weekend.

enjoy it, its a masterpiece and im not the only one on here who thinks so, lebowsky and at least 2 others i think felt the same way. haneke is always tricky and incredibly complex but there is a mastery and control of form in the white ribbon that im not sure has been surpassed. it is auteur film making of the highest order imo.

I totally agree, plus it's not strictly one of those arthouse, style over substance films. It starts a bit slow, but it picks up the pace and really immerses you in it. The atmosphere is dense and opressive, and the story is quite dark and unsettling. Almost every scene is like looking at a carefully composed photography or even a picture, and watching the film itself feels like reading a realist novel. It's truly a masterpiece. My mum hated the ending though

Holy shit I didn't forget about that movie. It was terrible and I wouldn't watch it again unless I was paid to do so. Faux-indie, garbage in my opinion.

Im amazed that it was a debut film.. So much perfection in the very first try.

I was never able to get through Squid and Whale.. I dont know if I would call it pretentious but it sure did seem like indie-fabrication.. As if it was trying to mimic popular off-beat dark comedies.. I couldnt really hang with it..

Yeah it had a weird innocence about it. Have you seen 'Days of Heaven'? That was damn good too.

Squid and the Whale made me uncomfortable, not because of content, but because of how forced the tone/shot selection/writing was. It was like a textbook 'How to Make an Indie Movie'... God it was bad.

Company Men: 7/10 managed to keep in it till the end, can't say it sucked, wouldn't recommend it but wouldn't not recommend it.

Badlands is Terrence Malick's first movie. In a lot of ways it's his take on Bonnie and Clyde.

Pretty good. I thought the first third was awesome but it fell off in the middle and the ending was only decent. The music was great in it too and really elevated some of the scenes. Tom Hardy was outstanding tho and I'm officially on his bandwagon now after this and Inception.

7/10

unreal performance, eh? i can't wait to see him as Bane. i think i gave Bronson more credit than it deserved upon first viewing, but i still thought it was a pretty authentic and original arthouse flick. i was sad to see JDG's low rating of it, but he's a hillbilly so i shouldn't have expected anything else.

you're really on a wild reading binge this summer, aren't you jail? i've been keeping up with your list in the other thread and i'm pretty jealous. my reading has fallen off a lot due to a lack of patience and a little bit of adhd, possible fed from overconsumption of da interwebz. i need to spend a good few months on a break from the online world and rediscover my zen place.
