yo netro that's an awesome site! i've seen quite a few of movies they review but i'll dig into some other ones that look interesting.
for halloween i watched 2 flicks (couldn't sleep) - first i watched Onibaba which I hadn't seen before and actually quite enjoyed. After that I watched Session 9, an old favorite of mine that I highly recommend to anyone who hasn't seen it. That film holds a special place in whatever part of my heart it is that enjoys seeing me scared shitless. I used to really enjoy urban exploring, and ventured into a few abandoned insane asylums in my time
And Witty- I've seen The Assassination of Jesse James... before and really enjoyed it. Brad Pitt breathed life into a character that always seemed mythical to me in that. I haven't seen The Killer Inside Me though, so I'll give that one a go asap.
I've seen quite a few good movies lately too. Finally got around to seeing Memories of Murder[i/] as per Meat187's recommendation in this thread a while back. I found it to be deeply depressing...I saw two other Korean movies as well - [i]Poetry and The Chaser. The two of them were great in almost opposite ways. Poetry was the type of flick framed by a minor conflict (desire to write a beautiful poem) that, as the viewer, you're certain will be resolved at the end of the movie. You know what's coming, but the way the movie ties itself together at the end is really wonderful. On the other hand, The Chaser sets you up to seriously expect one ending. No matter how dark it gets, you're always expecting that things will turn out one way. That being the case, I was truly shocked with the ending. Another great movie...
Caught Margin Call as well. I really expected it to be silly and contrived but it wasn't. The acting was great - almost no music in the movie and yet the tension was palpable throughout, solely because of the excellent performances by Kevin Spacey and Jeremy Irons. Paul Bettany was good as well - there was one scene that really resonated with me where he was on top of a skyscraper and sat himself upon the ledge, saying to his friends "you know why people are so afraid of coming up to the edge? It's not because they think they'll fall off. It's because they're worried that they might jump." And, somehow, that's exactly how I feel. It's weird.
I finally saw The Tree of Life as well and was totally underwhelmed. It may make it way onto my top 10 of the year list, but right now I don't think so...
