Speaking of French films, I recommend a movie called "The Devil's Envoys" ("Les visiteurs du Soir".)
It's a film directed by Marcel Carné, famous for "Children of Paradise" ("Les Enfants du Paradis). A kind of fairy tale, in the vein of Cocteau's poetic masterpiece "Beauty and the Beast" and featuring a fantastic performance by the late, great Jules Berry as the Devil.
Probably my favorite incarnation of the Devil on screen, with De Niro in "Angel Heart."

The only movie I haven't seen listed so fasr for me is Run, Lola, Run.



"Lola gets a call from her frightened boyfriend who has lost a large amount of gang money he was smuggling into the country. His only chance of staying alive is if she can get replacement cash to him in twenty minutes"

^ I could never bring myself to watch that movie. I heard Belluci's rape scene was particularly realistic and disturbing and I don't really want to see it.

Just saw The 7th Seal for the 1st time. What a beautiful film!
Also while we're in Sweden I just finished watching The Girl who Kicked etc... I thought it was kinda boring but I really liked the actor who plays Niederman, Salander's giant brother. Good villain.

agreed, he was a good villain but that movie was slow compared to girl with dragon tattoo.

as for Irreversible,

yes that scene is hauntingly realistic and it feels like it goes on forever. I do appreciate Gasper Noe's attention to realism however, it just makes the later scenes after the rape that much more haunting. You can very much see the same visual cue's he uses for his masterpiece (imo) "Enter the Void".

I have only seen Noe"s "I Stand Alone" so far. He is without a doubt a very interesting (and possibly troubled) director.
I might watch Enter the Void, if only for the visuals. I heard someone somewhere describing it as the 2001 of drug movies or something along those lines

Finally watched The Secret in Their Eyes.
What a great movie. Beautifully shot and acted and totally deserving of its best foreign film Oscar.

I had no idea he was the one who made Enter the Void. I have that on my Netflix cue and plan on watching it soon.

I've been meaning to see this one. My friend Jack told me good things about it. But since I don't have netflix(and not really interested in it, as I'm a sucker for bonus content), i haven't been able to find the DVD.

but speaking of Bergman, i just bought the Criterion Collection edition of The Magician. Gonna watch that one later.

Just watched The Seventh Seal recently for the 1st time. Really impressive film.

Just finished watching "In the Mood for Love" for the first time. Maggie Cheung is incredibly beautiful in that film.

One of my favorite movies from the last 10 years. You should watch "2046." It's a sequel in a way.

I heard it wasn't as great as In the Mood, but I suppose not that many movies are. Thanks, I'll give it a try.

It isn't, but still very good. Way different story though. And Christopher Doyle's photography is top notch as always.

2046 is underrated compared to In the Mood for Love.

Finally getting around to Tetsuya Najashima's Confessions. Anyone seen it?

Just Watched "The Secret In their Eyes", a real gem of a flick. The film knows how small and unique it is and takes advantage of it. The chase scene in the stadium is pretty ridiculous and awesome at the same time. 5/5

thanks for the recommendation gwynplaine

Oh, that is a great film. One of the things I like about it is that it has a subtle humor. It's a little bit tongue in cheek.
