Yeah I think November is a film where (if you're knowledge of Estonian folk fables is as weak as mine, then.......) you just enjoy the ride and don't get caught up in trying to make sense of it all.

Great film. Possibly the most underrated war film of all time. I never see it in any lists, favourites or mentions when war films come up. The sound design is also brilliant.

Re: Synchronic

Hmmm, I've really liked B&Ms previous stuff. They really work hard and must have to stick to a small budget. But I've been put off by almost every review of this I've seen so far.

I really like that film. Wasn't what I was expecting at all.

I didn't like Blow the Man Down but a friend of mine who has similar tastes to me enjoyed it, so maybe I was too harsh on it.

Sansho is my favourite Mizoguchi. It's a beautiful film. Ugetsu is good. The Life of Oharu also worth a watch.

I've got a working list of 25 but still want to see a few more before I submit. The biggest problem I have is trying to not have multiple films by the same Director(s).
