Love those Aussie films Prof. Just saw Deck Chair Danny which was a flash back to those off the wall films in the 80's.

Here's one from America....

Sherman's March - by Ross McElwee. 1986

McElwee (who I think has a new movie out?) received a MacArthur award or some such thing to film a documentary about Sherman’s March to the Sea. Instead, he breaks up with his girl friend and shoots roll after roll of his experience tracking down old girl friends in the deep south and getting into funny situations. Occasionally he mentions Sherman. Very funny.

It's my favourite of all time - a masterpiece, and to think Richard E Grant doesn't drink.

"Lost in Translation"

Lovely film. One that lingers with you (well it did me :)


Also thought "Monster" was very good, although harrowing.

Chris, that's a proper list. Black Narcissus Michael Powell's best movie? Night Moves defintely Arthur Penn's. Bit generous to Winslow Boy; can't stand most of David Mamet's stuff, Glengarry Glen Ross excepted. I feel a Film Noir Top Ten coming on.
Fargo

Watched it for the third time lastnight. You've seen Chungking Express haven't you mghifi? It uses Dennis Brown's "Things In Life" to wondrous effect. I watched Swingers recently for the first time and I highly recommend it to all. Funny, insightful movie.
