Watching Movies Alone with crumbsroom (General Discussion)
MKSThere's one in particular, that is so simple in execution that it's ingenious, with a child running towards his mother that has stuck with me and makes me feel like this film is so close to Bava greatness that it hurts.
Janson JinnistanI was going to say some things about Portrait of Jason, but I'm too depressed now. ?And that's a very depressing movie.I don't think I mentioned it last time, but I had a very close friend, a gay black man who resembled "Jason" in a number of ways, from the too-thick glasses to the miss thang manner to the dishy tales. ?But mostly the inebriation. ?There were some nights, man, that even without my taunting, the way these filmmakers taunted Jason, ended up in very similarly intense soul exposures, where I've had to realize that my mental games might have some strict limitations. ?My friend is dead now, but it makes the film an extremely difficult watch for me.
Janson is a condescending twat who probably posts pictures of his mom on other websites. (General Discussion)
Black PhilipBesides I don't care how long you ruminate on a film it's just that's it's a escapist horror film. .Nothing much to ruminate over.
The Circle (General Discussion)
Janson JinnistanUrgh. ?I don't know if you've been in OT yet, but I would strongly suggest that you skip the Daddyofive video over there. ?This is not reverse psychology. ?Seriously. ?I just want to take a bunch of xanax and watch My Little Pony for the rest of the night to get the stink out of my brain.
Janson JinnistanZulawski's Cosmos is something else alright. ?I don't think I can ultimately say that I liked it. ?I'm pretty sure it's not very good.
Janson JinnistanWait, is it a play? ?A documentary? ?Both? ?I'm not familiar with what's going on here.

Black PhilipcrumbsroomSo, Ben Organa is the least interesting troll in the history of RT, right? I guess the weird Square M arguments with himself about Christopher Nolan is marginally weird enough to make fun of, but this dull ass anti Americanism is clearly his last gasp at getting some kind of lukewarm notoriety. Right? Well that and it provided for a lot of Ben's mom jokes.

WooleyHas anyone here seen House of Whipcord?I'd like to read some feedback on that film.
RockI watched Sleepless based on Crumbsroom's recommendation. It's pretty decent. The 3 post-opera Argentos I've seen (this, 2 Evil Eyes and The Stendhal Syndrome) all seem to focus more on character than his earlier work. This one has a pretty nice Max von Sydow performance that it puts to good use, and I'll agree with Mr. Crumb that this is one of the best characters in any of Argento's movies. Unfortunately, there's a TV-movie quality to style so that it's not as fun on a technical level as his earlier work and actually feels a little anonymous, outside of a few strong images and the explicit gore. (The fullscreen transfer on the DVD I watched didn't help things.) The greater emphasis on characterization also means that dumb character decisions are more distracting than usual, although the mystery does tie out nicely enough.
