Appreciate it! I've never seen any Kurosawa so I need to force myself to start. The other two are new territory so stoked on that.housepig wrote: ↑Wed Jul 13, 2022 11:06 pmI'd recommend checking out movies by Carol Reed (The Third Man, The Man Between, Odd Man Out), Henri-Georges Clouzot (Diabolique, Wages Of Fear, Le Corbeau, La Assasin Habite au 21) and Akira Kurosawa (Seven Samurai, Hidden Fortress, Yojimbo, Sanjuro, Dersu Uzala, Rashomon.... )33033 wrote: ↑Wed Jul 13, 2022 6:39 pm Just got the Criterion Channel as a gift for my wife's birthday and watched Smooth Talk. Wow what an uncomfortable film. Amazingly directed.
High brow cinematic types: give me some recommendations! I'm usually used to schlocky b-movie horror over the past while and maybe need a palate cleanser!
Some things come and go on Criterion (like any streaming service) but if there are still films from the Japanese Noir collection, they're solid - Cruel Gun Story, A Colt Is My Passport, etc.
Those should keep you busy for a couple of days!
Finally watched SLACKER, which I should have done way earlier because boy did I enjoy that. Embarrassing that it's taken this long. Interested to rewatch Dazed and Confused now and Suburbia (was this not received well?).
