i know so many people who hate this movie but i absolutely love it. i think i might even like it more than good bad and the ugly. leone certainly knows how to take his time telling a complete story without boring me.

god damn that looks good

Mother


Japanese film about the mother of a mentally handicapped
young adult, and her desperation to keep him out of trouble.
Lots of interesting existential themes, visually captivating.


how did you see this? Has it been released on dvd yet? Ive been waiting to catch this one for a little while

wow im impressed with the amount of film buffs on slap. anyone on here interested in filmmaking by any chance?
Confession: I've got my fantasies of being a filmmaker.

I think I'm too much of a coward to simply go for it though. Ironic isn't it? Film making today has never been more accessible thanks to digital cameras and editing software, but at the end of the day, that shit still takes some balls.



i think you should go for it if you really love it. purchase a cheap video camera and just start making little shorts. your first few will suck (mine did) but the process and learning experience is priceless. keep practicing and you will start noticing improvements. im going to school for it but i honestly think film school is overrated. creativity beats a sterilized film school education any day. i believe that more people with god taste in movies should believe in themselves and make them!

Woods/De Niro absolutely killed it together. I rented if from netflix, so I got the see the original version with the 2 rape scenes as opposed to the condensed US version where the story goes in chronological order. Only thing that was confusing was the 3/4 guys looking for De Niro's character in the beginning? Never explains that. The Prohibition Era is probably my favorite genre of films.

I'd be interested to see the US version just for the sake of storytelling. Seeing it chronologically would add a strange dynamic to the film. So much importance is shown with DeNiro visiting childhood places and having flashbacks, I love the way its put together. I'm going to look for a download of the US version, I'll post it if anyone else is interested.

"The film premiered out of competition at the 1984 Cannes Film Festival[1] in its original running time of 229 minutes (3 hours 49 minutes). However, against Leone's wishes, it was released in the United States in a heavily edited and truncated version (almost ninety minutes shorter than the original version released in Europe). The short version eliminates the elaborate flashback  structure of the film, instead placing all of the scenes in chronological order. Leone was reportedly heartbroken by the American cut, and never made another movie before his death in 1989, making this his final film." I completely agree man, probably my favorite part of the film are the flashbacks. You get a better in depth of the storyline. Love the kind of bittersweet ending.

I only watched this for the first time last night;



I rarely remark on actors but shit, Christian Bale killed it. I plan on reading the book but I have a serious backlog of things to get through first. And I'm not going to lie, still a bit baffled as to the whole story.

The book is completely insane. I'd highly recommend it.

I don't know why i put off watching this for so long, absolutely amazing. Everything about this film was perfect.

Also, Ralph Fiennes really creeped me out.

Second this. The movie does the book no justice. Stomach turning brutality mixed with humorous satire.

I really enjoy this one. A bit slow in the beginning, but after that, every thing kicks off.

Not usually a man for musicals, but I gave Nine a chance and I wasn't really bored with it at all. Daniel Day Lewis does a magnificent job in this movie too.

Even Daniel Day-Lewis can't make me watch that movie.
