Re: The MoFo Top 100 Foreign Language Film Countdown

Spirited Away was my #12. I've obviously given the edge to Mononoke already, but there's no denying how much of a classic this is (even if it is arguably the most accessible entry point for...

Re: Movies that you block out.

I'm not that arrogant. Franchises tend to cancel out their own worst installments anyway.

Re: The MoFo Top 100 Foreign Language Film Countdown

Stalker was my #2. Easy enough canonical pick but as someone whose tastes skew pretty hard towards science fiction, it's hard to disregard one of the true greats in the genre (and yet no Solaris on...

Re: The MoFo Top 100 Foreign Language Film Countdown

8 was my #16. Maybe the best movie about movies ever made and one of the better films I've seen that deal in artistically-minded self-consciousness.

I've seen Pan's Labyrinth at least a couple...

Re: The MoFo Top 100 Foreign Language Film Countdown

Re: Films whose low budgets contribute to their greatness.

Clerks being shot on a budget of about $27,000 using black-and-white film adds a proper visual style that simulates the look of convenience store cameras in a way that complements its mundane setting...

Re: The 75 best looking films ever made

Not a problem. If you are looking for something that matches Suspiria in terms of style, there's obviously more of Argento's stuff (Inferno is a direct sequel to Suspiria and therefore very similar)...

Re: The 75 best looking films ever made

I feel like it's worth pointing out that Suspiria isn't technically a giallo (those tend to be more mundane murder mysteries as opposed to the black magic seen in Suspiria), besides which I don't...

Excellent films, but I didn't vote for either. Definitely owe Andrei Rublev a revisit, at least.
