I don't know. Sam Peckinpah's Cross of Iron has an original and mesmerizing style. James Coburn is sergeant Steiner, a man with a love/hate relationship with his life on the Russian-German front circa 1944. It's a very good film, that's all I know.
Douglas Sirk's A Time to Love and a Time to Die is about a german soldier coming home on a three week leave from the aforementioned Russian-German front. Only, the vacation is no picnic either. Frankly, they're bombing the shit out of Berlin, and it's not nice for anybody. The guy is looking for his parents, but finds a girl instead. Generally great stuff.
All in a Night's Work is a fun movie. Shirley MacLaine is really cute and Dean Martin is better than usual(obviously usually he sucks). Good film, just not anything too profound.
Miffo, from Sweden. Is about a young priest called Tobias(curiously looking like a greatly upgrated version of Toby Maguire) who is trying to get his life in order. Struggling for independence from his wealthy parents and high-class background, struggling with his ambitions to do good in his profession, and generally struggling in his messy personal life, he meets a girl in a wheelchair, who is of the lower uneducated classes and looking like a polish hooker, so naturally there's immediate attraction. For some odd reason the film occationally threatens to suffocate itself with stupid Hollywood cliches, but luckily director Daniel Lind Lagerlöf has enough style and grace to steer through the sometimes a bit too conventional plot succesfully. Some delicious scenes. A smart small film that yet doesn't want to stray far from the mainstream.
Insomnia is a good solid mediocre thriller from the Memento guy.
Deadly Outlaw was an entertaining and imaginative but in no way exceptional action piece from Miike. Katakuris was more exceptional, interesting horror comedy musical.
The Polanski ones I saw over a month ago and even though they were all great, I don't remember Repulsion or Knife having such a profound impact on me. I might be a little cruel for not giving them eights, but you can blame my poor memory for not having enough to grab on to.
[b]Nói Albínói[/b] is a totally touching and humorous icelandic film about a young slacker in a small village who enjoys skipping school and dreaming of better things. Wonderful film with great characters and much personality. I could've given it a 9 but the relationship between Noi and the girl he meets isn't portrayed very well. The girl stays virtually lifeless to the viewers. But other than that, great stuff from promising young director Dagur Kari.
Black Cat, White Cat is a quite insane comedy from Emir Kusturica.
The Marriage of Maria Braun is interesting but slightly uninteresting film from Rainer Werner Fassbinder.
Tango is undoubtedly a very good film if you like dancing and the aesthetics of tango.
My Fair Lady is stripped from most all of the brilliance that was so abundant in Pygmalion, and so ends up looking sadly lame and amateurish in comparison. Although I'm quite sure it would look so in it's own right too.
