JFK is a great movie, even if you don't want to talk about the political content and treat it like fiction. It's one of those very few movies I have to watch regularly and never get tired of. I'll forever be haunted by that scene.

Oh, I know it, it truly is haunting, I agree. I think the content of the movie was handled so well - I mean, it's not trying to tell you what happened but, rather, what didn't happen (even though we're told otherwise). Oliver Stone has made some absolutely knock-out films - JFK, Natural Born Killers, Wall Street ... By the way, have you seen W.? I haven't but I want to. Nevertheless, I am curious about your opinion of it if you have seen it.

I agree, but I've heard too many people tell me they can't be bothered with historical/political movies, I always try to sell them using other arguments. On the same theme, one of my favourite movies of all time, that you might like if you loved JFK so much: I... Comme Icare. 1979, French film by Henri Verneuil, with Yves Montand (the French Humphrey Bogart, a guy who fucked Monroe - I know, they all did). It's about the Kennedy assassination, but all the names and details have been changed. Montand is known for being a bit slow in his acting, and considering it's an old French movie, it's even slower than what you might be used to. But don't let that stop you, it's not a Michael Bay flick. Oliver Stone is said to have studied it when researching JFK. And of course, it is mandatory to watch it in its original language with subtitles. Montand is also a singer, and he uses his phrasing and voice to make dramatic effects like no one. It looks a bit kitsh now, because much less natural than what people are used to.

Now, W. You're putting me on the spot because I've been meaning to watch that one for months. I love Josh Brolin, and Bush was the guy in charge when I first started thinking about politics. I'd love to watch a movie, not a documentary this time, about him. Tell you what, I'll watch it tonight, I'll get back to you on it later. If I don't make myself do stuff by telling people I will, I just don't.

That would be exceptional, thanks a lot! You are clearly very knowledgable and passionate about cinema and it's nice to have discussions about it beyond "that movie is good" or "this movie is bad" or whatever. Ah, yes, the elusive I Comme Icare! I have heard of it (admittedly through the Oliver Stone reference) but have yet to see it unfortunately. It hasn't been released domestically here in the States although I am hoping that Criterion will pick it up since it certainly seems like something up their alley.

Oh, and about subtitles, to me watching films in their original language is essential - I hate dubbing! Unfortunately some European films released over here in the States are dubbed with no original language options available ... bleh, it's criminal (or should be), haha, and I don't like it. Speaking of subtitles, I picked up a copy of Nobuhiko Obayashi's House today and am quite excited to watch it. I guess it's quite the headtrip horror film and I am expecting some good things! I plan to watch it either tonight or tomorrow ... we'll see.

I watched Obayashi's House last night and thought it was a good picture overall. It is undoubtedly a very psychedelic and odd horror picture although it's difficult to place it because it wasn't really behind, around or ahead of its time (1977) ... indeed, it's that unique, haha! It's not a particiularly horrifying movie as it's quite colorful and comical but it really wouldn't find into any other category for horror save for perhaps "art film" which is a rather ambiguous classification anyway that I don't care to use.

Hey Bud, I'll recommend you, Wake in Freight if you haven't seen it. its all on youtube i believe. Another horror-ish film made in the 70s. It is very weird and unsettling. its about a man who takes a vacation to bum-fuck-nowhere in the outback of Australia and almost loses his humanity.

Plague Dogs. Its like animated Homeward Bound but instead of everything being alright, nothing is. very grim and depressing animated movie from 1982.
