I don't remember enjoying Inland Empire much. That was a misfire for him. Never seen Eraserhead or Dune.
Wild at Heart is a fun, entertaining flick and Twin Peaks was of course a good show.
But, I don't know how anyone could not like Mulholland Drive on any level though. Even a lot of people who are utterly confused by it come back to it multiple times to try and figure it out. It's got such a great hypnotic and watchable quality to it, and it's a compilation of some really interesting scenes that are well-played.. especially by Naomi Watts who was robbed of an Oscar nomination that year.
I thought people keep coming back for the hot girl-on-girl action.
Hilarious documentary bout a middle aged eccentric 'loser' who wants to complete his short film with the help of hopeless, drug-destroyed friends & loyal family including his hilarious uncle who is pessimistic about the success yet still provides funding.
They are from Milwaukee, Wisconsin so the accents alone are entertaining but the filmmaker is just an underachiever with a passion for making his film.
It's gold- hilarious & still has heart. I highly recommend, esp if u enjoy documentaries that are 'slice of life' bout people who would generally not get much attention.
After a summer of mostly terrible and disappointing bloated CGI big budget crapfests, it was refreshing to see a smaller scale movie (only cost $900K to make) deliver. Ryan Coogler just made a name for himself with his debut and I look forward to seeing what he will accomplish with more seasoning and experience. The acting was solid all around, especially by Jordan aka Wallace. I liked how they just mostly told the story and let it play out organically without using cheesy tactics to try to pull at the audience's heartstrings. They showed the good and the bad of Oscar Grant and didn't try to paint him as an infallable saint, just as what he was- a human being who had flaws but was trying to get himself together for the people he loved. Even though you know how it will all end, the finale still packs a big emotional punch.
Coogler and Jordan will be teaming up again to do 'Creed' with Jordan playing the grandson of Rocky Balboa's one time nemesis and later best friend. Idea sounds ridiculous at first glance, but I'm willing to keep an open mind about it.
Presumed Innocent: 6/10. Interesting but saw the twist coming. Also the unnecessarily graphic Harrison Ford sex scenes were just sorta weird. I really don't need to see him sucking on some broad's nipple.
Primal Fear: 6/10. Norton and Gere were good, but again we all saw that twist coming.
