I agree with that, however I would suggest that Under The Skin may be a potential nomination in a few months, when it is more easily available cheaply in France.

Just a quick reminder. City

Just a quick reminder. City Of Lost Children needs to be watched by the end of the month, and we could really do with David's choices as soon as possible.  Wink

I've got the film out ready

I've got the film out ready to watch this weekend

Change of subject but I am reading the Guillermo del Toro book The Strain. I see its starting on Sky (Watch) in September. If its anywhere near as good it'll be a must watch.

I've just finished watching

I've just finished watching Confessions, a Japanese film which was part of the Film 4 revenge season. Well, there's no doubt about it, it's definitely a tale of revenge, but an unusual one, and quite hard hitting too. Not always easy to watch, but I'd recommend it to those of you who like a film that leaves you a little uncomfortable in your seat.

I'm thinking about ringing

I'm thinking about ringing Frank Harvey Hi-Fi and asking David for his third film choice. Might be easier than posting here.

Please do, may be our only

Please do, may be our only option.

 

I have put City of Lost Children as my next lovefilm selection, so assuming they have a copy in and I get a chance to watch one of my films this weekend, I should get it next week.

It'd be nice to have a chat... Smile

Bear with me - been very busy recently with one thing or another - I'll be glad when August is behind me! When I chose those three, I thought about it a lot! I don't just want to replace it with something willy nilly. Fell asleep early last night too.

Just a heads up for those who

Just a heads up for those who haven't seen it (and those like me who have but would like a refresher) - Dogtooth is on on film 4 on Wednesday night.

I can't recommend it highly enough, a great film, which I have nominated previously as one of my choices.

I have just finished watching

I have just finished watching Lake Tahoe, and I really enjoyed it.

For one thing, it wasn't over long, which is nearly always good in my book, and it also has a gentle undercurrent of humour, with the very occasional laugh out loud moment.  It's not exactly action packed, and it's unusually edited, but it has genuine warmth and heart, and I highly recommend it.

Sorry, wasn't around

Sorry, wasn't around yesterday - was collecting a replacement bike from the other end of the world...updated!

City Of Life And Death  http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1124052/?ref_=nv_sr_1

A depiction of the 1937 war between Japan and China. 

Snowtown  http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1680114/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1

It is worth watching the Bodies In The Barrells documentary, as for me, it helped with who was who, and also gives a little more to the true story of Australia's most notorious serial killer.

Requiem http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0454931/ 

I've not seen it before, but I believe it is better than all the modern possession style cash in movies.
