The director for Hereditary has so much potential and I think the women who played the main lead is amazing one of the best performances I've seen by any women in years.
Yes, she was fantastic, and it isn't easy to interpret a histrionic character without falling into overacting.

Have you seen the short films of this director? They are very interesting. He seems to be fascinated by dysfunctional families dynamics.

Has someone seen "Beyond The Black Rainbow"?
No one? :sad:


Trailers that I found interesting...

(It isn't new, I know)



I love Pattinson and I hate that people have him in stigma for that shit "Twilight". I appreciate that he's accepting interesting projects and can demonstrate the potential that he has. He's amazing in Cosmpolis and Good Time.

I have read a comment about this film, from someone who said that its forms remind Tarkovsky, but without his depth.

Mia Wasikowska:sheik:


I also want to watch In Fabric.

I'm one of them :snoop:

Doesn't help that with his movie selection he's trying extra hard to get rid of just that stigma, which will of course never work. He's always gonna be the faggot Vampire, just like Daniel Radcliffe will always be Harry Potter.

I hate you :stuckup:.

How can you demonstrate potential in... Twilight :boh:
Of course, but he has made more films besides Twilight, and people (like @DAiDEViL :stuckup:) still see him as a mediocre actor without really see the projects he's choosing, and the interpretative talent he has. Sure, we can't stay with the fagot vampire of Twilight.

Cold War was fantastic. I saw it at VIFF this autumn. Gorgeous film, I loved its black and white aesthetic. And the music. :heart: I love it's pacing, how fleeting everything is, and how it still manages to tell such a story in under 90 minutes, in this modern world of cinema where most films have trouble staying under 2 hrs (not that I don't enjoy this also).

Other films I enjoyed at VIFF were:

The Favourite
Shoplifters
Jinpa
Shadow
The Wolf House
Ruben Brandt, Collector
Long Day's Journey into Night
Sicilian Ghost Story
The Wild Pear Tree
The Sisters Brothers
Happy As Lazzaro
The Old Man and the Gun
Edge of the Knife
An Elephant Sitting Still
Daughter of Mine
Transit

What are some movies where the protagonist receives obvious signals and flat out invitations from an ultra hot girl with a sweet personality and mega body that he feels a great chemistry with all the way through but he is way too much of a stuttering retard pussy to make a move so he ends up alone in his hotel room dreaming about killing himself?

Sounds like me IRL

Anyone else seen The House That Jack Built yet? Challenging and provocative as all von Trier films are, but also tedious and repetitive. Definitely not one of his best. The ending is something else though. I haven't stopped thinking about it since I watched it. But perhaps it's a film more interesting to analyze than to actually watch.

First Man - Decent but way too overrated. Just another space movie. Acting was nothing special (average at best), storyline was nothing and camera was rather annoying with the close up and shakes. I have no idea what people like about this one to hype it. Suspense? Nope, it had zero. Way too predictable too... like when he starts focusing on the mission, family starts to suffer and wife is there to moan :sleepy: I did love the soundtrack upon the landing, though. I'll give 'em that.

Le diable probablement - Meh. It had a nice idea but I did not like how it was executed. Acting was literally non-existant and the main guy is horrible. I love Bresson but this is the worst movie I've seen from him so far.

Y tu mamá también - I did not enjoy it. It had a good start but it fell apart later on. I thought I'd see some kind of adventure but it was rather meh. But despite all that, it still sticks with ya (not just the sex scenes).

Paris, Texas - I really liked it. I think it's a great movie. Enjoyable and nicely made. It hits quite hard and Wim Wenders is a genius.

Driving Miss Daisy - That was a nice surprise. Pretty great and relaxing movie.

Atonement - Nice. Not much to say about it.
