As Metal Virgin once said, "The Brits did it, New York did it, well now it's our turn." Almost every city thats part of spill has an event or get together except for sunny California. Well that's all going to change so let's start creating Project X…See More
I can understand that, I think that feel of discomfort was the director's intention, but I understand you not enjoying it. It definitely has a similar feel to Mulholland Dr.
Well, at least you gave it a shot :)
Well, first of all, the cinematography is gorgeous, I've always been a fan of Conrad Hall's work and this is one of his very best in my opinion. I loved the dreamlike atmosphere and I actually really enjoy that uncomfortable feel.
The acting is great, I don't think I have seen much of William Atherton or Karen Black but they were both really good, and Donald Sutherland and Burgess Meredith steal the show.
I found that look to the golden years of Hollywood to be refreshing and it shows a really ugly face of it that we're not used to see, and, for me, the riot at the end is one of the most affecting moments in film ever, both psychologically and physically, it really did leave me shaking for a little bit.
Agree completely, I was cheering for Homer to smash that little shit's head haha
And, yes! I've been wanting to watch Nashville since forever, I actually bought the DVD recently, I need to get around to watch that as soon as possible. Funny fact: Karen Black appears on Nashville :)
I think I remember who Black played... Nashville is fucking huge. You can marvel at just how well Altman juggles all the characters and storylines. It's a sad, damned film. One I can only dream of making.
Nashville is one of the best ever, and if you have it I suggest logging off spill this second and watching it. There is a large amount of country music in it, but those moments are what underline the sadness (and the music is also funny, because it isn't good).
Wow, I forgot about jeepers creepers haha, that got stuck in my head for a week, thanks for bringing it back :D
I haven't seen that many Altman films, I've seen Gosford Park, which was good but not exactly entertaining, saw The Player and I tought it was excellent and 3 Women which I absolutely adore and I cannot recommend enough. I have Short Cuts and Nashville sitting on my shelf and I'll try to watch both of them this week. Now I'm off to watch two Hitchcock films that I'm incredibly ashamed to admit I've not seen: Rear Window and Psycho, talk to you later Andrew.
