    ^Robert Pattinson, or "R Patz" (no joke) to his legion of squealing teen-aged female fans, is the moody vampire who sparkles when he takes his shirt off from the Twilight series of films.

    He was also recently in David Cronenberg's new film Cosmopolis. I suppose a master like Cronenberg knows how to direct ol' R Patz (still not a joke) in such a way that his emotionless dead pan actually seems intentional.

    I didn't like what he was doing I would hardly call it acting I'm not trying to be overly negative the other three leading ladies didn't pull their weight either.

    Over all a bad film it was still nice to see the period features but I would recommend sticking to the book.
    The only Guy de Maupassant I've read (in a good translation) is Boule de Suif, and it's great enough to rate him as one of my all-time favorite writers (love the story ).I wonder if a movie ever based on the subject.

    There was a film adaptation made in 1945 I don't know if it's easy to find though.

    Just saw "Take Shelter" (2011) -- such an AMAZING movie! The ending gave me goosebumps...

    Over the weekend: Days of Heaven, Office Space, and The Pianist. The first two films I'd seen before, but the latter was my first viewing. It was a powerful and well made movie deserving of all its accolades, but I don't think I could watch it again. Days of Heaven, on the other hand, is a movie I could put on loop all day everyday.

    Currently embroiled in an imaginary? romance and split with Kristen Stewart. Maybe he should just join Anderson Cooper in saying, "Hello World."

    DOH is good. 34 years of hindsight says director Malick and Gere should've retired after.

    I recently watched animated short I, Pet Goat II directed by Louis Lefebvre.

    One of those films that is open to one's own interpretation. (Well, I guess all films are, to some degree.)

    I watched it a number of times because there was too much going on to catch in one viewing.

    Personally, I got a very positive message from it. Wonderful work of art, too.

    Thanks.

    Well, you mean this:

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0039215/

    Via searching, there was also an earlier adaptation:

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0025691/

    And (both) not so easy to find !

    Jan Švankmajer's Faust, 1994



    One of the few modern movies which I found really adorable (Now I'm looking for other Švankmajer's films).The atmosphere so dark, using stop motion technique, with some borrowings from Goethe as well as Christopher Marlowe.

    I strongly recommend it to those who adore Surrealist cinema !

    lol...I take it you didn't care for The Tree of Life? Or Pretty Woman?

    Personally, Malick is my favorite director. There's not a movie of his I don't like. In fact I love them all and I'm eagerly awaiting his next project which is supposed to hit screens sometime this year. But I can see how you'd feel differently.
