I keep quoting you but we seem to have the same films of queue! .. I tried to watch this the other day.. and was admittedly put off by having to rent it but I guess I'll end up supporting them.. is it censored or something? cause I found it on the "Dictator's Cut" section of the Ambulante film festival.. which is the section where everything that's censored or just inexplicably 'not distributed' goes. I found it weird cause I have this idea that it's mainly about infrastructure and not too political. But then infrastructure can be SO political.

^Hmm..interesting...i'm really not sure to be honest. I don't think it's beyond the realm of politics....actually in some ways it is quite a political film....but not in a shocking or controversial way, i don't think. I'm not sure what's going on with distribution - i know we tried to book it for a local film group and we're having trouble. i saw it at a theater where it was screening for one night only as part of a documentary festival. Actually Gary was live on skype with the audience after the screening, but sadly i had to get home.

anyway....I think it's worth paying for.. it's lovely and well made....it makes you think, but it doesn't push you in any direction or insist on its own agenda or conclusion....you can really enjoy it on a few different levels, i think, and i appreciated that....that it's not interested in shock and awe tactics....rather it allows you to digest all of the information and see where it sits within you. if you just want to watch it for the architecture and urban planning element, you can....if you want to think about it in terms of globalization and poverty, you can....and if you want it to be about politics and activism it can be... it's very flexible and careful storytelling, i think.

You make it sound as interesting as I imagined it to be.. I saw a clip of the documentary and it also reminded me of the Frontline features (which I haven't seen in so long!). I'll definitely watch it this weekend.

i'm jumping in!

this will be a great way to keep track of what i watch and will be a motivation to tackle movies on my netflix list rather than watching tv series (which i enjoy but i want to refocus on films)

I'll try to remember what I've seen so far this year...

1: The Help
2: Shutter Island
3: Bill Cunningham New York
4: The Artist
5: Moneyball
6: We Need to Talk About Kevin
7: Crazy, Stupid, Love

I've actually seen more than I originally thought!
Four of those I saw flying back and forth from Paris... which was lucky all around

22. Goodbye, Again(1961)
23. Amores Perros(2000)

I saw The Artist and I loved it. I loved everything about it! The music, the perfomances, the set, the editing, the directing, well, everything! But I'm an old hollywood fan and perhaps I loved it so much because I had the oportunity to see things that I can't see in nowadays movies in The Artist.

I think it would be a dull movie if you don't pay much attention to it or if you are looking for groundbreaking effects and shots. Also, for the more basic audience that are used to see big explotions, sound effects and great visuals it will most likely be boring.

^Good teal selection, I agree with almost all of them

Anyone else felt disappointed with Super 8? after all the hype it wasnīt all that great imo
and Avatar is far more enjoyable in 3D, I rewatched it a while ago in bluray and itīs still beautiful but it was magical in 3D...

I was just trying to be really broad when I used "theme".
