I’m selfishly looking for more good movies to see, and I don’t have confidence in advertising or ‘recommended for you’ sections, so I’ll ask you all instead!
Most of what I remember about this movie was being very attracted to the female lead, but I enjoyed it a lot when I saw it
The whiplash, double-pronged Chungking Express is one of the defining works of 1990s cinema and the film that made Wong Kar Wai an instant icon. Two heartsick Hong Kong cops (Takeshi Kaneshiro and Tony Leung Chiu Wai), both jilted by ex-lovers, cross paths at the Midnight Express take-out food stand, where the ethereal pixie waitress Faye (Faye Wong) works. Anything goes in Wong’s gloriously shot and utterly unexpected charmer, which cemented the sex appeal of its gorgeous stars and forever turned canned pineapple and the Mamas & the Papas’ “California Dreamin’” into tokens of romantic longing.
Hey dudes, I’ve always been a massive fan of The Big Lebowski. I find it hard to see any malice and sorrow in The Dude. We barely know anything about him, even after the movie, so not much identity going on, doesn’t even like to be called by his name. And the way he responds to situations that most would deem stressful is interesting. Almost like Srinath was once narrating, that an actually free person can still be startled or act in ways that others would perceive as being affective.
Anyone else like this cult classic?
Oh and what about Office Space, which to me is a great example of how things start going well when you’re feeling good.
My taste is based on the axiom “the mediocre is the exceptional” along the lines of Richard’s “in this moment the immediate is the ultimate and the relative is the absolute in all its exquisite purity”
I love the Dude but I still see a feeling being. He definitely worries and gets annoyed. I love what he’s about and that he’s just bumbling through life seemingly carefree. I think what people like most about him is that he’s unashamedly comfortable being himself.
The main character from office space strikes me as somewhere between comfortably numb and having fun. But eventually the real world catches up to him and he changes his tune a bit.
Has anyone seen Zola? It’s a little dark but very funny and exciting.
@milito.paz: I watched “Office space”. Yes: feeling good changed his live indeed (although it’s interesting that this feeling was obtained more and more from good feelings, which generateed more and more problems for him, until the bad feelings counterpart appeared again).
I found it funny, but the scene with the printer generated an unexpected series of laughs, evidently because of a similar personal and emotional connection to my long history with those damned devices
