POSSESSION

The eyes of Isabelle Adjani!
what about the creepy scene in the underpass?
I saw a trailer as a kid and I could not sleep for days back then.

And what about the significance of wearing pink socks...? Seriously though, both Isabelle Adjani and Sam Neill deliver the performances of their careers here. Unfortunately on my VHS copy the scene in the underpass has been subjected to cuts. Still it's one of the greatest movies I've seen.

She has the craziest most intense stare I've seen from any actress. It's so overwhelming the rest of her abilities are overshadowed. That's praise, not criticism. All she needs to do is turn up and use her eyes which must be an enviable quality for any actor to have. It makes her pretty amazing.

I first saw the tunnel scene in my early 20's. I just turned the TV on and went straight into it not knowing what film it was and thinking, JESUS CHRIST! WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS???

Is the tunnel scene the birth? The dvd I have is on Anchor Bay & I think that scene has mild trims. I believe there may be a Euro. dvd that is fully uncut. I need to pull it out for another watch this weekend. I thought I had sold it but thankfully, didn't.

HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN is crap. It's filmed really well & looks great with the red/blue lighting but maybe too good. Dialouge is terrible. There's nothing about it anyone needs to rush to see esp if it's more than $10. The '80s films it references or is influenced by, are much better. Or just watch STREET TRASH.

STREET TRASH

Now there's a blast from the past. A punk guy I used to hang out with in Malmo must've had that on repeat because everytime I visited him he was watching it. Without fail every fucking time over a period of several months.

re: Possession - when MondoVision gets around to releasing their DVD of Possession as part of their ongoing retrospective of Zulawski's filmography I have heard it will be sourced from an original negative and thus even more uncut than any previous version. there is also going to be a limited theatrical re-release sometime in the next year of a NEW 35MM PRINT struck from the same elements.

AH, good info on Mondo Vision. I took a look at their site & POSSESSION is listed under future rel's. I guess they are who I was thinking had already released the film. Will def pick it up when they get it released. That scene of Sam Neil rocking back and forth in a rocking chair looking like a complete lunatic...

bullet in the head by john woo - good story with devastating climax and top class violent action scenes in hong kong's dark streets and vietnam, 90s woo ruled.

the duel by car at the end is definitely one of the best action scenes ever.

Speaking of John Woo, I watched The Killer for the first time about a month ago, totally kicked my ass. I really enjoy Hard-Boiled but The Killer blew it out of the water in my opinion. Not quite as over-the-top as Hard-Boiled and I think that's to it's benefit.

I think any John woo of those years must be praised.
a bullet in the head
the killer (not my fave, but defintely his manifesto)
hard boiled (the coldest one, yet with some impressive scenes)
once a thief (the lighter movie, funnier, yet with some outstanding scenes)

but my faves are A BETTER TOMORROW, especially the second episode, that is perfectio in every image.
the last 20 minutes are incredible, and the soundtrack!!!
I have loved also Tsui Hark's prequel to the series.

Anybody into Jhny To? I think he is the best representative of the once glorious HK action cinema.
Any of his latest movies are just perfect.

I've heard Election is quite good but I haven't seen it. I'm trying to remember directed the first Young And Dangerous or Young and Wild... That series is a lot of fun.

EDIT:

Yeah, Young and Dangerous http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0116456/. The first three are the best but they're all violent and wild HK flicks so if you're into that kind of thing they're all enjoyable.

Agree. Great movie but are enojyoable for hard HK cinema fans. Another great suggestions is Dangerous Encounters 1st kind here the trailer http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YHbflU2ds4Q

I have also a special taste for Mercenaries from Hong Kong, virile action at his best. Pure exploitation http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FnVgEW-MGZk
