There are some really good parts, and some parts that seem like they're straight out of War Horse.  It's an alright film,  DDL like always is so fucking good.

Larry Cohen is a very underrated director. Any jerkoff can make a buddy cop action movie, a romantic comedy where they break up for 20 minutes and get back together in the 3rd act, or some dumbed down superhero adaptation cgi fest, but Larry Cohen had ideas. Real ones. This is fantastic movie encased in a pretty good movie, because unfortunately, this movie has some of, no joke, the worst editing I've ever seen. Movies like Dolemite had it down more, although at least you won't see the boom mic in this movie. This movie should be remade; it's need to be re-edited. One tip, Turn down the fucking music and turn up the dialouge.

EDIT I forgot to respond to this: I haven't seen this movie, but I've always said that people should remake bad movies instead of good ones.

really cool yakuza flick.

Not my favorite Kitano movie, but was still enjoyable.

Not sure if I would say this was the last "good" movie I saw but I finally watched it the other night. I'd heard about it for years, lived in Serbia for a bit even, but just remembered it the other night and found it streaming. I only watched the 99 minute version which is the edited one - uncut is 106 minutes I think.

Honestly, at least the cut version, I didn't find to be all that bad. The gore and violence wasn't any worse that lot's of movies I've seen with little to no controversy around them. It's the film's circumstances that are fucked up.

Anyone seen it? The uncut version? The director/writer gave some bogus contrived explanation of how it's a metaphor on the Serbian government fucking you from birth to death.

already came out.  wasnt nearly as good as the first.  the thing about the first one is that it's actually an exact representation of how the yakuza work.  so much so that laws concerning the yakuza changed in japan after it came out.  the second one was just so over the top.

Ah, greetings, greetings, and salutations. I beg your forgiveness. My tardiness was unavoidable. Rava, my love. Elaine, my dear friend.. And you must be Jerry. Lord of the manor. Ah, my liege. A pleasure to serve you.

I've seen it, the uncut version, and I guess those 7 minutes could have made the difference. Some of the scenes were kind of disturbing, not that I couldn't sleep for days or something but definitely some images that remained in my head. I also don't believe in that Serbian-government-metaphor-bullshit-interpretation... A friend of mine put it that way and I agree: it is a very well-made horror movie with a good score which by the way breaks a shitload of taboos (content-wise).
Look, I'm an individual within us, partaking in this business

You and your friend summed it up well.  That metaphor shit was a fucking cop out.

Love this movie but never see it mentioned anywhere. Nice one! Giuseppe Tornatore is an amazing storyteller.

I wanted to watch a film Paris/France related and so I watched this




This is gnarly, it's not in my favorites but it's still a good movie to watch once in a while
Oh and when this came I went nuts, so good

Been sick so I've been catching up on what I've meant to watch for a while. Miller's Crossing was pretty solid, but Barton Fink...Goddamn. Great, great movie.

The score was done by Tangerine Dream and fits the film perfectly.
