Shanghai Blues. Funny, colorful, with absurd coincidences and genre-mixing in a blender. Soaked in blues, cantopop, jazzy fun.

His first wave is his best stuff but later things like History of the Cinema are worth sitting through if you can. More of an acquired taste for some, I think.

I've watched René Clair's Le million last night and it's actually my first from him, it's a light and charming comedic musical, and that scene, the "rugby" game with the jacket was hilarious. I need to see À Nous la Liberté very soon.

I've just come back from watching "The Raid" and WOW was it amazing! I can't recommend it highly enough! Some of the best action directing and fight choreography I've EVER seen!

If you haven't seen it, GO! NOW!

I just watched M and then about half of 8 1/2 back to back, and the comparison between early 30s Germanic and early 60s Italian filmmaking was a very startling contrast.

Overall, strangely, M felt much more modern and well fitting with American sensibilities than the oddly written and shot 8 1/2. I found it pretty interesting.

Orphee -- I liked this more than I thought I would, though I did prefer the "realistic" scenes to the dream-like sequences, which seemed more theatrical than the other films in the trilogy.

Taipei Story--The relentless breakdown of a relationship in urban Taiwan society. Bleak but beautifully told and very intimate. About being alienated and trapped by past glories nobody gives a hoot about while unable to move forward into the future.

Watching Gaspard Noe's Enter the Void. I'm not always that interested in the stories he has to tell or the shock value aspect of his work, but what a great visual director. Probably my 1st choice to direct a weird, psychedelic Dr Strange film.

I really liked Enter the Void but Irreversible was a bit much.

I just watched Wild Strawberries and Le Samuraï over the past two days.

Next up is the original Russian verison of Solaris, the Norwegian version of Insomnia, and Ikiru.

13 assassins was pretty good, kind of reminded me of seven samurai in a way.

I still need to see the original Let The Right One In.

The cinematography looks much superior to the American version.

Hoyte Van Hoytema is a great cinematographer, he did Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and The Fighter too
