The Ruling Class. It's a musical. Smile

A member of the House of Lords dies in a shockingly silly way, leaving his estate to his son. Unfortunately, his son is insane: he thinks he is Jesus Christ. The other somewhat-more respectable members of their family plot to steal the estate from him. Murder and mayhem ensues.

RE: favorite movie?
I got tons that I love but I always recommend Sunshine by Danny Boyle, don't think enough people saw that one.
In the 60's, people took acid to make the world weird. Now the world is weird and people take Prozac to make it normal.

As a reputed atheist, the reverential nature of his film was surprising, but Pasolini himself said &If you know that I am an unbeliever, then you know me better than I do myself. I may be an unbeliever, but I am an unbeliever who has a nostalgia for a belief.&

RE: favorite movie?
I never understood how someone could label their "favorite" film... or song, or band, painting, book, sculpture, or poem...

They all seem to affect me in different ways on different days. Some days, nothing will suffice except listening to "Dark Side of the Moon," and other days the only thing that works for me is watching "The Big Lebowski" and reciting every hilarious line before it's finished... Nobody fucks with the Jesus.

The Deer Hunter is definitely a very painful film - not really a film one can label favourite. The reason I chose it is because when I saw it in the cinema, it had far more affect on me than any film before or since. During the Russian Roulette scene my ass was literally sweating as I squirmed in my seat...

As for Gasland, if you haven't seen it, please do - you'll be blown away...

RE: favorite movie?
Yeah gotta give props to The Deer Hunter, it's in a class of its own.

Hollywood is 95% programming, 88% fluff and 99% imitation. However there is the original original and thoughtful gem that surfaces every now and again but those days are waning. On a positive note the movie industry is becoming decentralized with independent film producers leaving their mark with the introduction of production and distribution technology like the internets.

I intentionally left out documentaries and lectures from my not-so-short list. I think there is a thread for that somewhere -- oh yes here they are:

Some favorite movies ...
The Gods Must Be Crazy -- If you like to laugh, this one is a gem ...

Iron and Silk -- Mark Salzman's experiences as an English instructor in post-Cultural Revolution China. Hard to find, but worth the search. How in the world did they film this (on location!) in nineteen days ?? Also a very mature presentation of martial arts training. Get it!

Telefon -- Mind controlled assassins a la The Manchurian Candidate. Directed by Don Siegel who directed the fifties original film of the Invasion of the Body Snatchers. Charles Bronson as a KGB agent ?? Siegel makes it work! Many consider it Bronson's best acting (seriously!). Like the original Frank Sinatra version of The Manchurian Candidate, this film "holds its own" after three decades. And after three decades, it finally came out on DVD. On better trackers everywhere ...

The Count of Monte Cristo (2004 Hollywood version) -- Some say that Alexander Dumas wrote this story as a parable to illustrate the "long arm" of the Jesuits. Others say that Edmond Dantes out pictures the (esoteric as opposed to conspiratorial) "masonic enlightenment" under terrifically adverse circumstances. A poignant tale of revenge ... and the letting go of your anger to those who wronged you.

Contact -- See it !!

Ben-Hur (1959 version) -- The parallels between Rome and current America are unsettling. Four hours long!! Make lots of popcorn ...
