Last Year At Marienbad

More than I hoped it would be.

Guy who likes movies
Some of my favourite first time watches of 2020:

Beyond The Hills (2012)
Sons of the Desert (1933)
Henry Gamble’s Birthday Party (2015)
Thank You and Good Night (1992)
Me and You and Everyone We Know (2005)
The Cameraman (1928)
The House That Jack Built (2018)
The Wise Kids (2011)

Rashomon
Wuthering Heights
Parasite

Sword Of Doom
The Big Sleep


These were all somewhere between good and great.
I also went back and watched all the Friday the 13th movies I had never bothered to watch, which included 5, 7, 8, and 9. None were good but there is a certain garbage-can level of charm.
There were more but few notables.

Metropolis (2001) (A)
Reefer Madness (A)
Falling Down (A-)
The Neon Demon (A+)
Gandahar (A-)
Yojimbo (A)
Raw (A)
Edmond (A-)
Relic (A)
Videodrome (A)
A Moment of Innocence (A)
Lawnmower Man (A)

What are your thoughts on Paris, Texas? I remember you mentioning you were meaning to check that film out some time ago. It's definitely great and glad that it topped your list!

My personal No.1 (if we don't take Rocky Horror seriously).



Whoops, forgot The Red Shoes.

It was a bit of a slow burn throughout, albeit an increasingly emotional one, and of course, the final 15 minutes were superb, and enough to put it over the top for me.



I forgot a couple of others:
