Not Hollywood - Yeah!
#1
Earlier this year I watched the most enchanting Spanish Pan's Labyrinth and came to realize that the art of great film making still, thankfully, existed outside of the suburb of Avaricious Hollywood.

With that Spanish recommendation in mind, I also wish to commend to anyone's film list, the slow-fused, compelling but utterly delightful German language sub-titled The Lives of Others.

There is hope in cinematography.
The shadow is a moral problem that challenges the whole ego-personality, for no one can become conscious of the shadow without considerable moral effort. To become conscious of it involves recognizing the dark aspects of the personality as present and real. This act is the essential condition for any kind of self-knowledge.

I loved The Lives of Others, but my favourite film at the moment is Darren Aronofsky's The Fountain (currently available on Play.com for £4 and worth a lot more). Everyone should stop what ever they were doing and watch this masterpiece as a matter of urgency... Imo.

Thanks Damien, I'm getting hold of a copy...

I just watched Antichrist. Confused I'm not sure I liked it. I think I did, but I would be able to smile if I had. Wouldn't I?

Just so many a man lies sore, from the worm within the world.
