Amour

Post by Obnoxious on Sat Jan 19, 2013 1:37 am

Finally watched this film this afternoon. I really liked this film though not going to be my favorite of Haneke's. In many ways this is not a film you would expect Haneke to make.

But it IS a Haneke film, keep that in mind if you are going to watch it.

Performances are one of the best in the recent times.

This one is on my list. Have you seen Rust and Bones yet? If yes, what did you think of it?

haven't managed to watch it yet - watched "loft" today, the dutch remake of the original belgian movie. a typical watch-once-crime-thriller.

finally got around to watching it - a very realistic portrayal of confronting death and old age. reminded me of "tokyo story" in some ways but this was more hard hitting and did not bother with filial neglect and such emotions, which i guess is a more of an asian expectation.

the last movie i watched was 'silver linings fluffbook' which spun a fairy tale out of some disturbed characters and one came out feeling good with a very incorrect notion that all's well with even people who have serious disorders. it was quite a dishonest and disgusting movie that didn't live up to its rom-com status either.

you want reality? watch this instead.

Haneke uses music in a very interesting way.

Here is Haneke's Starwars trailer. Smile

Also in many ways this the most straight forward film made by Haneke.

hi I want to watch a movie where filial obscurity and pathos mixed with bromide and dostoevskian psychological insights are paired with rom-comesque elements and served with a side of piotr deczalesque gonastians. can you suggest such a film and a wine pairing to go with it? thanks very much my dears

two things -

1. report the optimal thermostat setting, fluorescence and decibel levels for the perfect experience;

2. don't forget to belittle everything everyone else is watching.

>>>May I be so bold as to suggest a film from the 80's that you may have missed-'animal house'? I believe It has most of the elements you are looking for in a cinematic experience. I would recommend you pair it with peperoni pizza and budweiser beer. Smile

2) is the most important thing. without that, your cinema watching abilities cannot be considered high falutin
