Absolutely!
Also The Grapes of Wrath, Hud, Cool hand Luke, No country for old men...

I've watched a couple of old French classics recently, The 400 Blows and The Rules of the game. Both excellent!

Uncanny, I was going to include one of my all time favourites The 400 Blows then thought I was perhaps pushing it. :cheers3:

 

Yep with the first three, still to see No Country for Old Men and the Renoir.  

 

Amarcord, Jean de Florette, Manon des Sources?

 

Can't decide what to watch now..

Great cheers, I'll check these out.
The 400 Blows is tragic, but brilliant!

Speaking of Wim Wenders, I've just finished watching Alice in the Cities, which I guess was a pre-cursor to Paris, Texas. Anyway, this is possibly one of my favourite movie scenes of all time. An absolute work of art;

Anyone catch 'Only God Forgives' yet? Lovely smouldering movie...touches of David Lynch, Hitchcock and Argento but with a gangster setting - recommended!

So I picked up a Claude Berri box set on ebay for 2 quid, and watched Jean de Florette & Manon des Sources last night.
Absolutely incredible! Thanks for the tip.
PS I also picked up Amarcord on ebay for 1.99, planning to watch it tonight.

Good understanding of movie tastes. :ok:

Definitely. Endorsed both films probably a few pages back.

So glad you enjoyed it, it's a delightful film.  I'm always telling folk to watch it but very few do.

My Life as a Dog

 

Moonrise Kingdom

 

A Very Long Engagement

 

Breaking the Waves

 

Midnight in Paris

 

Delicatessen

Buggered if I'm going to trawl through 94 pages, but what about Das Boot?

As far a I know, it was all one movie*, although it tends to be broken up into episodes to make a telly series.

*The tamb knows all, so someone will tell me if I'm a cake of if I meringue.

They voted 'No' and in anguish cried out "Lord, Lord, we didna ken" and the Lord replied "Aye well, ye ken noo" Vote 'Yes' (my log-in name? meh, it's retro chic :) )

The telly series isn't just a broken up version of the film; it is substantially longer with more stuff than is included in the movie version.  I'd definitely recommend watching the full series rather than the film.  It's brilliant.

Aye, cheers. What I should have said was, the whole thing - about 6 hours long(?) - was originally a movie. They showed it as a tv series, but yeah, you're right enough, there was also a much shortened movie version.

I suppose I should wiki it, but I'm off oot.

But aye, it's brilliant. The tension when they're stuck on the bottom - oo-er missus - is something else. Crackin' thing however it's defined.

Here's the wiki page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Das_Boot Slightly less than 5 hours, apparently.

Don't say I'm not good to you :P

The Bridge. Documentary about people jumping off the Golden Gate.

Fantastic but brutal.
Can you hear Talvin Singh?
