    Poetry Club

    Sorry about that =(. If it makes you guys feel any better, what I mentioned won't even make sense until you're right at that part in the movie, so it shouldn't ruin anything for you. EDIT: oh man, you even have it in your signature

    i'd say it's not as smart as it thinks it is. there's not much depth to the movie, nolan just made a bunch of convoluted sci-fi nerd rules that you have to pay attention to if you want to follow the movie. i can't remember where i read it but someone said that he's substituting complexity for...

    Eastern Promises

    he's not really, it's just his last two films have been more standard fare. if you want to see what i mean you should check out these movies by him: videodrome crash dead ringers the brood shivers naked lunch scanners eastern promises isn't bad, but it's nothing compared to the stuff he was...

    Shutter Island

    I don't understand why people think this way. What's so bad about a director taking the source material and altering it in an interesting way?

    anyone in to asian films?

    gozu and audition are his best imo. gozu is like a david lynch tribute movie that has a lot of miike's typical disturbing humor in it. i haven't seen happiness of the kutakaris but someone whose taste is similar to mine said it's one of his favorites. edit: oh you didn't like the flashback and...
