Just finished watching The Heist, and having seen it before, it was even more entertaining the Nth time around - this post was from 15th December, but the pedant in me migrated it to here.

Viewed this film about two weeks ago. I might have seen it before as it seemed familiar, but I cannot recall if I did, but it has to be the funniest film ever, as I couldn’t stop laughing from beginning to end, so 10 out of 10 for humour. :D

Viewed this film last week.. an enjoyable watch, that takes you on a journey of survival in a futuristic landscape, by stark barbaric means, and often unnecessarily so..

Richey gets schooled by Dr. Deitz at the end of the documentary/interview. Well done doc, and spot on.

Mm-hm. I am irresistably drawn to everything strange, forbidden and terrifying.

And Rich was something very special in that regard and quite the enigma in many ways. Especially interesting was his absolute devotion to and affection for his wife and daughters. There's a magnificent if paradoxical reversal of what is expected in a sociopath from an abusive family. I could go on all night about the klinsk... little nuances about this guy everywhere that really put him into an atypical category. Suffice it to say he wasn't a bad dude. Rather he was a different, much more rare kind of good guy. An unordinary 'good' that requires an unconventional understanding of human nature and psychology. But I digress. Got more videos to watch. I'm on a binge tonight.

A slow beginning, so became background noise, but over halfway through, the pace picked up, and the viewing.. riveting, those scenes from there on in, being a sight to behold.

Having seen this film many times over the decades, it’s kitsch cinematic style and filmography never fail to entertain.. from the costumes to the acting, it’s all big-n-bold and full of beautiful people.

Watched "Kung-fu Hustle" last night with my son, probably the best martial arts film ever made. Very funny.

A must watch.. reminiscent of a film-version of ILP on a bad day. The exchanges got rude and crude, but were oh so funny.

Both are outstanding, but excel in different ways. No spoilers, here. Parasite is about current times and is masterfully calculated and structured. The Lighthouse takes you to another time and which you'll also probably need subtitles for. The Lighthouse is a more experiential and cinematically beautiful experience. If I had a critique of Parasite it would be that, while clearly skillfully composed, it is a bit too forced perhaps undermining its point. For The Lighthouse, it's the opposite - I'm not sure that I totally get it - but it captures something so intriguing that it is the one I'm likely to watch multiple times.
