This is one of the best movies I've ever seen. There are other clips I'd rather post, but this is the only one that seems to be available. It was made in Soviet Georgia, and is variously called Repentance, Confession, or Pokayanie. The symbolism is pretty thick, so it's best enjoyed with someone who knows quite a bit of Sov/Russian and world history, as well as literature.

^Chris Farley, we hardly knew ye.

Just to be clear, I needed to have Repentance explained to me; thus my warning that others might like it better with commentary.

Blue Velvet (nsfw)


I wish I could have found the "yep, it's an ear" part.

Lost in Translation...the pacing seems off until you watch the whole movie. For the first half, I couldn't figure out why everyone thought it was so great, by 2/3 through I thought it was pretty good, and by the end, it was one of my top 5. I watched it again the next day.
No problem! I watched the movie in a daze at 2 am, so I can happily watch it again...

I'd only seen Bill Murray in Caddyshack, so I was skeptical when I started Lost in Translation.

^ That's my favorite scene! "Wendy, I'm not going to hurt you, I'm just going to bash your brains in..." LOL, that always makes me laugh!

I stayed at the hotel the set was designed after...creepy...

I would tell you if it weren't so obvious. You're the one who likes riddles!! My only hint: Go read some of your own posts.

The Shining: Every time I see a photo of the real hotel that the movie set is designed after, especially the hallway (*shudder*), my mouth waters. What's up with that?

I watched it the day after seeing Japanese Story which was effectively the same story but told in overstatement rather than understatement so at first viewing I was underwhelmed. Then I was lucky enough to catch Lost on cable for a second viewing and whoa.............'More Than This' will never be the same again.

I forgot about this scene. I love Peter Sellers. He really was a genius and left us too early.

^^Dude, I came into this thread to post that exact scene.

How 'bout this instead? I looooove B movies.


If you look closely, you can see the Keds sticking out from underneath the space critter as it galumphs along. I like the part where the girl is eaten, because she is quite obviously crawling inside the costume.
