(I did a brief search through this forum and didn't see a thread quite like what I have in mind, so here it is)
This is a the thread for pointing out truly superb films. I'm not talking about Hollywood blockbusters; I'm talking bloody well smashing movies
that stand out.
I will start with the one that I just watched:
. Starring William DaFoe and Charlotte Gainsbourg (2009).
Woah. I've heard of this movie for years now but I never got a chance to see it until now. This movie is certainly unique, and highly
psychological. It's also a "horror" film but it's not unrealistic. In fact, it's all too real. This movie just blows my mind. I don't really
want to get into details because this is one movie that has to be seen to be understood- merely talking about it would only undermind the experience
for those who have yet to watch it.
Hobo With A Shotgun
. A 2011 Canadian film.
This is a movie that stemmed from Grindhouse (Death Proof/Planet Terror), just like Machete, in the fact that it was originally a fake trailer shown
during Grindhouse when it was in Canadian theaters. The actual movie is pretty damn good. It's about a hobo who arrives in a hopeless city in
chaos. Eventually the hobo becomes fed up with watching society fall apart around him, so he picks up a shotgun and starts cleaning the city up from
the scum that has taken over. Some of the acting is a bit over the top (especially the villians), but still though, pretty damn amazing.
So what say you, ATS? I'm sure some of you enjoy a fine movie just as much as I do
