It was kind of a mindfuck... it's on the 'bay, if you'd like to look for it ;D
No, I haven't seen it, any good?
So has anyone here seen Mulholland Drive? If so, what did you think of it? :D
@Soap: Among lots of others, I've seen all "Making Of" of Hitchock films. It's interesting to note that for example in "Psycho" Hitchock himself was disappointed with the first test screening (that didn't have any music) which seems logical to me, as a suspense movie is living off of its music.
It's also fascinating if you want to take a glance behind the scenes and into the thoughts of a director when you watch the old version of "The Man who knew too much" and you see that Hitchock wasn't satisfied with it and thus recreated it years later and changed a great deal.
Thanks for the invitation guys, although I'm not so sure what I did to deserve it. :D
I'll take part whenever I can.
Guys! Do you have any advice on making-of movies (feature length or shorts) that I should watch? I'm looking for some inspiration.
I've already seen:
Audience of one (insane christian priest uses church donations and members of his church to make a sci fi film ala star wars thats actually based on a bible story).
Heart of Darkness, a filmmaker's apocalypse: the story behind the horrible shoot of apocalypse now
Lost in la mancha: the reason people talk about the terry gilliam curse in the business, a film never made because disaster struck the shoot!
Three documentaries from last year that I enjoyed (or at least, found it worth my time):
Collapse: a man in a surprisingly rational tone gives his reading of the current economic crisis, with oil as the main focus. 75% kind of convincing, 25% kinda hyperbolic apocalyptic, 100% fascinating
Best worst movie: about the lives of the makers of Troll 2, really shows you how silly the movie industry (and its fans) can be. I havent seen Troll 2 and i really liked this movie.
Exit through the gift shop: a fascinating story about an insane man and the movement of street art. just finished this. Peculiar movie with a peculiar message, I'd say.
All taken from this list:
Film I'm looking forward to:
I'm actually quite flattered that I was invited... I personally don't think I have that great of a taste in movies :| I've liked (or at least didn't hate) pretty much every movie I've seen, except Babel :P
Tays is right, that is the thought behind this group. Soap's thread is a good place for suggesting lots of good movies you like, this group however goes into another direction. It should focus on one movie at a time. The first person to watch the movie in question can then review it (everybody who watched it can write their review of course) and has gained the right to choose the next film to be watched.
I've kept the Group private and invited all members that seemed to have a good taste in movies. If you have any requests of another film eager member to be added, feel free to say so.
Also, even if you've seen the '99 remake, I think the original is well worth the watch as it's very different in several aspects. The remake is too homoerotic for my taste. The '60 original is in French, but you can find it in English under the name "Purple Noon".
