Hello, maybe we could hear some recommendations from time to time? New releases, forgotten gems, essential dvds.
Anyone who has a tip, could you give a few words about the movie?
Thanks.

I'll go with "My Summer of Love", the new film by Pawel Pawlikowski.
I went to see it this morning and really loved it.
It's about two teenage girls who have an intense love affair over the course of a summer.
The characters were driven by teenage passion and fear and bravado - it was cringingly familiar in places..
They were, of course, devoid of self awareness, so it was really comic, too.
What fantastic cinematography - this wee Yorkshire village looked really beautiful, bathed in sunlight. What a change from the brassed-off/full monty version.
There's a lovely understated, spooky soundtrack of music by the goldfrapp people.
So it was a really funny, sexy and sad film.
Pawlikowski's last film was the fab "Last Resort".

Shattered Glass is good

turns out that squeaky geek who plays Darth Vader can act after all - at being a squeaky geek journalist who makes up his stories.

good film

Peter Saarsgard and Chloe Sevigny too, that's what you want in a film right?

Waiting for the new (hope it's not the last) Chris Marker (La jetée, Sunless, Level 5). It will be showned on Arte television here in France. An insider said to us that it will be premiered at Centre Pompidou in Paris the 3rd december. And there would be a lot of cats that would be released during the screening. The film is called "Chat Perché, D"
A somptuous french revue published by Leo Scheer called Cinema (n°7) was published with a dvd with an extraordinary documentary about a house in Iran (in 1969) that welcomed (or kept prisoners) people with skin disease (lepre in french). Absolutly incredible.
watched last week with friends in silence short documentary (Les Havres) by Luc Moulet, great french documentarist, about architecture in north town Le Havre. Funny. And a cool Shaw Brothers kung fu movie called Five Deadly Venoms. Vive le cinéma!

Saw Saw today. Its good, really brutal at times.

Funny thing was that during the trailers I noticed a little girl in front of me with her parents, so thought i'd gone into the wrong cinema, so went out and had this conversation with an usher...

Jimmer - Excuse me, is this the correct screen for Saw?
Usher - Yes (pop your collar etc)
Jimmer - are you sure because there is a small girl in the seat in front of me?
Usher - Yes, def the right one.
Jimmer - Isn't it an 18?
Usher - Yes
Jimmer - .................

She looked at me like I was the idiot! Strumpet.

My film of last night. A brutal, bleak, snowbound spagetti western starring Klaus Kinski with a great haunting Morricone score. If you only know the Leone spagetti westerns this one will introduce you to a very different flavour of spagetti.

I watched Scum on C4 the other night. Still quite shocking after 25 years.
