    as I'm asking for a rec, here's a couple docs I would recommend, apologies if they've already been mentioned - Being Blacker and The Funeral Murders. I remember they were both on the bbc last year

    Watched 'The Player' the other night, with Tim Robbins as a Hollywood agent who sortofaccidentally kills someone. Anyone seen it? I really enjoyed it, and I was fascinated by how it made me feel emotionally involved in the plot despite constant postmodern winks undermining the 'reality' of it all.

    Yeah, love it. The opening is brilliant, the guy talking about the tracking shot in Touch of Evil during the tracking shot...

    I enjoyed Under the Silver Lake a lot. It's flawed in its treatment of women (always naked pretty much) and artistically does owe a lot to David Lynch and the like. But I like David Lynch so a slacker movie with a hint of Neon Demon and a touch of Ellroy but directed by Lynch with some pop-culture conspiracy stuff mixed in is always gonna press my buttons. Anyone else seen it? Would like to discuss it.

    I know it's a mug's game to ask for explanations of the details but... SPOILER how come they killed the guy out of Mad Men and the woman whose dad disappeared but at the end they said to the main guy "We probably won't kill you but don't tell anyone"? I don't expect an answer to that but I found it mildly unsatisfactory, almost a lack of internal consistency.

    I watched Calibre a month ago, really really liked it. one of the best straight to netflix films I've seen and not really what I thought they would fund - thriller set in rural Scotland

    Curtis Harrington's Night Tide smokes and is probably v. in the lexicon of the stuff the board wants to see. Also on youtube for free, with a young Dennis Hopper!

    paris is us

    i like these kind of movies. floaty and dreamy. no real plot but rather a collage of moments, memories and impressions. it felt very human and universal. innovative cinematography and good editing. traffic lights switching colours on empty streets, waves crashing against piers. even if they are cliches i don't care, they are effective and they work. stroboscopes in a club, same thing.

    Serie Noire is Jim Thompson through and through even with Perec cowriting and being French with Patrick Dewaere, playing a down on his luck salesman who goes from bad to worse when his wife finds out he jacked a client with his new, almost mute, underage girlfriend.

    images (Altman) is a schizophrenic horror flick has with Susanah York.

    I got a random urge to watch human traffic the other night (not so random it seems as the sequels coming out soon but it was subconscious) and when searching for it in Netflix came across a really good film about human trafficking/sex slavery in Mexico called "The chosen ones" thought it was fantastic.

    Is this the Rivette thing that's 30 hours long?

    Oh I'm mixing up two Rivette films there... neither of which you're talking about I think. As you were.

    Arctic was excellent, but Im a sucker for quiet survival flicks.

    I'd confused Paris Is Us with 'Noturama' for some reason, apparently available on Netflix. Not really a recommendation but I found it watchable. About a group of kids turned terrorists with one scene of them dancing to some electronic music before blowing up Paris.
