Must leave for the time being - Magnificent Seven.

Watched New York Stories. Scorsese's and Allen's segments were really great, and Coppola's... not so much.

The Elephant Man. Probably Lynch's most conventional film, but still decidedly Lynchian. A great cast, a sad story, stunningly shot... excellent overall.

Animal Crackers. Absolutely hilarious. A very high joke-to-minute ratio. Completely packed with laughs and Zeppo.

The DVD was faulty and buggered up about halfway through (but the last few minutes worked), so I had to find it on YouTube. Nevertheless, my enjoyment was not hampered. And good riddance, I don't want my enjoyment in a hamper. Who knows where it'll end up.

Watching old films is no picnic.

Unless it's "Le déjeuner sur l'herbe".

Eyes Without a Face - interesting tone, and beautiful imagery, though slightly sloppy writing
Raging Bull - wow. Especially impressed by the editing.

The City of Lost Children. Astonishingly exquisite imagination, visually as well as aurally. Dark and sweet.

The City of Lost Children has been a favourite of mine since seeing it in my student days. It is a charming story, the fantasy setting beautifully imagined and the villains delightfully sinister.

One of the few of his I've not seen. As far as conventional films go, there's also the Disney(!) film he directed - The Straight Story, which I liked.

I've now seen half of his films, The Straight Story not included in those - although it's on my list. In fact, all of his films are, except Dune. I don't think I'll see that any time soon.

I'm now working my way through the special features of The City of Lost Children. I watched it again with Jeunet's commentary, and am now looking at the behind-the-scenes stuff. It's an absolute joy.

Billion Dollar Brain, blarg, this was dreadful, certainly not a worthy effort in the Harry Palmer series. Such a shame, really enjoyed the first two.

Problem one: too many weak plot points not explained or badly explained. Problem two: too many things simply out of canon for the character. Problem three: ridiculous plot made convoluted. I think that generally you can have a ridiculous plot, if you keep it relatively simple i.e. any James Bond film, or you can have a convoluted plot so long as it's reasonably sensible/believable i.e. Ronin.
