What movie did you just watch/are you watching/did you recently see? I think this thread could be a good way to get turned on to and talk about good movies/filmmakers, especially since a bunch of people who post here have very good taste in movies.

The last movie I watched is Jarmusch's Down by Law, which I really loved and hadn't seen before. Jarmusch is a really very cool guy.
DVD's I have in my room:
There Will Be Blood, Paul Thomas Anderson. I haven't seen this one yet. Going to watch this one whenever the roommate shows back up, hopefully within the next half hour. It's too bad that I wasn't ever able to get myself to the movies when it was a choice.
Midnight Train, Jim Jarmusch. The only of Jarmusch's regular movies that I haven't seen.
Roma, Federico Fellini. A movie by a master that I haven't seen before. I took it out of the library.

I'm about to watch episode 5 of Krzysztof Kieślowski's The Decalogue.

Other movies I've got are Kihachi Okamoto's The Sword of Doom and Stanley Kubrick's Lolita, one of the only films of his I haven't seen. Should be a good weekend.

last one i watched was Into the Wild - i had been familiar with the story, but it had a pretty deep affect on me. very well done imo. i'm also from Alaska so it was even more interesting for that aspect.

So many of my threads are on page three within two hours. I've become hesitant. :)

Down By Law, There Will Be Blood, and Roma are all masterworks.

I just watched Fitzcarraldo, which was meh. I'm also re-watching There Will Be Blood as much as I can right now.

Lined up:
Keep The River On Your Right: A Modern Cannibal Tale (Documentary)
Les carabiniers (Godard)
Ivan's Childhood (Tarkovsky)
The Nude Vampire (Rollin)

Roma was very interesting. Some very cool scenes, some not so much. I liked everything about the film crew, especially the scene on the highway and in the subway-like thing. No over-arching plot at all really, but still feels very cohesive. I think that's because Fellini presents the 'Romans' in the same way in every scene and time-period. It was good.

I checked out Leone's A Fistful of Dollars from the library today. My memory of this trilogy is beginning to fade, so I'm going to go through them again.

watched Lions for Lambs earlier today. it was just alright. no outstanding acting jobs, but i did like the way the story lines intersected. the robert redford storyline was my favorite of them all. it sparked the most interesting conversation of the film with the cruise/streep one in second.

It has probably one of my top 3 endings ever.

yeah i heard this was pretty bad.

only had time to watch Nashville over the weekend. very interesting movie, i don't know a ton about Altman but supposedly this is one of the very good examples of his "style" - one thing i noticed that i think he is known for is that the sound picked up lots of peripheral noise and conversations, making it sometimes very difficult to get what people were saying and how the various conversational threads tied together. combine this with about 20 different characters and it wasn't an easy movie to follow, but in the end it had a very interesting theme and message.
