  • Either a lot of those films are truly great, or I like Delicatessen a lot more than you do. Ditto Good/Bad/Weird.

      You like those a lot more than me. I though Delicatessen was cute, but I didn’t find myself impressed by it overall. Last act in particular was just…okay.

      The Good, The Bad, The Weird is a film perpetuated by violence for the sake of spectacle. There’s no real motivation for the characters to do a lot of what they do and there are a lot of moments I thought were silly in a stupid way.

    Glad to find someone else who watched Kandahar. I hope you’re able to get a copy of that director’s masterpiece, Salaam Cinema. Gabbah is also worth your time.

    Aside from that, really surprised Breakfast at Tiffany’s was so high. I found it to be one of the most outdated and over-coded films I watched recently.

  • I think Delicatessen is one of the best comedies ever made. Cruelly underrated film. Even if you don’t like it as much as I do, I’m happy people are watching it at least. Amazingly good movie.
