Oh, I understand I'm off on my own about Arizona, everyone tells me I should love it. I think I'm broken.

nice thread here. i agree no country was great, air tank nail gun device was sick! ha.

for me east asian cinema...anything by takashi miike and likes, akira kurosawa (ran, seven samurai, yojimbo), chan-wook park (old boy, lady vengeance), john woo...

and of course my favs. snatch, lock, stock and two smoking barrels and l4yer cak3 by guy ritchie and matthew vaughn.

and this is barely scratching the surface on my list, great cinematography is endless...

I'm sorry, no country sucked. If it wasn't so hyped maybe I could take it for what it was: Something that kinda made no sense, with a shitty ending. What I'm saying is that the movie felt empty more then anything (bad choice of words on the make no sense). But What can you say, the book was just "a book" from what I heard.

Cinematography was good though.

yeah Coen brothers do Americana so well. No country was in that era close to when I lived there and it was mad nostalgic for me. Raising Arizona is still my favorite tho, followed by Lebowski.

Another movie thats pure Americana for me is Boogie Nights. If you haven`t seen it for any reason you should see that.

Been into `70s tough guy films a lot lately, far as badasses go Travis Bickle aint got nothin on Charlie Rane:

No country wasn`t about the ending, it was about the ride. I think you`re too young to appreciate it.

no country was an existential film. nothing has any meaning, take it for what it is, but last year There Will Be Blood was the best imo.

for coen bros, miller's crossing is also good, but i agree, big lebowski is the best


was great.

D6 and Takashi mentioned There Will Be Blood and Boogie Nights - P.T. Andersen. The guy's a fucking genius. Proof in the pudding being 'Magnolia' with one of the best film endings in history: RAINING FROGS hahaaha. Christ, even Cruise is good in it... and Quiz Kid Donny Smith playing 'Dreams' every time he pulls up in his car etc... loads of quirky, funny shit there. Love it.

Yeah, senshi is right.. I first learnt about the original story through the comic book(manga) too, and it's so much better...



Actually does that happen all the time when you're trying to bring a comic book story to motion? Akira(Katsuhiro Otomo), Nausicaš(Hayao Miyazaki), Ghost in the Shell(Shirow Masamune), Jin-Roh(Mamoru Oshii)... etc. are some pretty good examples.

Once upon a time in America - Sergio leone...the ultimate gangster masterpiece spanning 40 years...

Once were Warriors - the most powerful independent I have ever watched. Jake the Mus should wear Tenderloin...

Empire of the sun - an epic drama of young innocent boy becoming a deep war torn hollow man in WW2.

Farewell my Concubine - learn Chinese 20th Century history in 3 hours...some scenes are so historically real its too scary.

The public Enemy - James Cagney the ultimate gangster actor...never again will you want to eat a grapefruit for breakfast. Ready yourself for the most powerful scene of American Cinematography with the song "I'm forever blowing bubbles"

Groundhogs day - who doesnt need to be inspired!?

...Laputa - Miyazaki H, because it was based on the area around my home and let me look up at the sky and dream...
