Ah yes, forgot to mention that one. Great film indeed. I actually caught that before I heard about Illusionist. A darker trip, definitely.

Some others I watched/re-watched recently:

Sexy Beast - Gotta admit I have a huge man-crush on Ben Kingsley >.<
Lantana - Kinda snuck up on me, this one. Decent/mystery detective movie.
Senna - The name says it all. Film-Documentary about the God of Speed!!

you are not alone smile

Napoleon Dynamite - oh i loved this movie.
Hard Candy - i got a crush on Ellen Page since i watched 'Juno', but in this movie it proves to be dangerous to have a crush on Ellen Page wink - really suspenseful and a great surprise ending (imo).
Man on Wire - about the biggest tribute to the American WTC i can think of, this documentary is about an awesome French tightrope-walker (Philippe Petit) and his mission to walk a tightrope between the Two Towers (illegally, of course). beautiful, funny and amazing.

i will give you more when i think of them smile
keep the thread going and keep bringing awesome movies!

Sexy Beast is a fine movie. Kingsley is a peculiar character though. He does these awesome movies on one hand, and then he turns around and stars in low budget BS like Bloodrayne. I've always wondered why, it's not like they pay him huge amounts of money for B movies.

Love it! Have you seen the society of the spectacle? I've never read anything by Viénet but I've read Raoul Vaneigem's The Revolution of Everyday Life which I loved.

@Eren: Great list, seems you have a similar taste to mine. smile But what I do not like is Monty Python, never understood the British humor. Though, I do not think that I watched Stalker yet, somehow missed that one, will put it immediately on my list.

humor is a strange thing. i once read that lots of jokes we like here are just not thought to be funny in Russia, and that what Russians find funny about the Netherlands is that grass grows between our streetcar-tracks. which is something i don't understand is funny. (btw, not implying you're Russian ivanov, don't know where you're from exactly.. just read that stuff about Russians).
i love Monty Python, think it is about the funniest stuff i've seen in my life. it is absurd and weird and strange and i love that.

On that note, I find that you cannot explain Spamalot to anyone who hasn't seen it;)

I would also like to note that during intermission, I overheard "I don't get it... Where's the plot?".  Those folks were truly in the wrong theater (theatre).

Thanks mate. Actually this movies are hard to watch, like Stalker, when i offer it my friends, everytime they say too long, too complicated, i quit in the first 30 minute something like these. big_smile Monty lol, humor is really strange, when everybody laugh something but you don't, you laugh but everybody don't. I love Monty's criticism about feudal society, inquisition, knighthood, and yeah Arthur The King of The Kings. big_smile And one my favourite part;

- Who the Britons? We're all, we all are Britons!

And the legendary trailer;
