Hellboy II: The Golden Army


  • Glad you saw Day for Night. Made in USA is the next Godard film I need to tackle (I only have that one and The Carabineers left and I’ll have seen all his films from 1960-1967, his most famous period).

  • The Year of Living Dangerously is a sadly forgotten film, and better than people tend to give it credit for.

    I’ve thought about watching the entire qatsi trilogy but have never gotten around to it. Is it worth it?

    • Koyaanisqatsi is one of my favorite docs, so I’d certainly recommend that one as a must. Powaqqatsi is good. It has some issues. My review will be up later today. Haven’t seen Naqoyqatsi yet. I’ll probably get to it sometime this month.

      I did like The Year of Living Dangerously a lot. One of the best Weir films I’ve seen. Not sure why it doesn’t get talked about more.
