Just managed tonight to settle down tonight and enjoy The Silence Of The Lambs. Really got into it.

THE SOUND OF INSECTS - RECORD OF A MUMMY (PETER LIECHTI, CH 2009)
I'm kind of obsessed by the text "miira ni narumade" by Shimada Masahiko since I first heard about it 15 years ago (if I remember right, it was a festival curated by Otomo Yoshihide). This is a film based upon this novel. In short, it's about going into the woods and commiting suicide from slowly and painfully starving yourself to death. Film itself is OK, not exactly what I imagined it could be. But I'm happy that all the text of the diary is there. Fictional, but based on a true story.

Watched, for the first time ever, these last two days, Krzysztof Kieślowsk's Three Colors trilogy. Some of the best filmmaking I've seen in a very, very long time.

They're currently all on Hulu along with Kieślowsk's The Scar, Blind Chance, A Short Film About Killing, The Double Life of Véronique, A Short Film About Love, Camera Buff and No End. Not sure if it's a limited thing or what. It's part of Criterion Collection's "free festival" — whatever that means — so it seems smart to just gobble it all up before it disappears.

Belle de Jour ( Luis Buñuel)
Managed not to watch it for quite some time, but last weekend was right place and right time. And I have to say it's a great movie for this time and age.

Next was a newer one:  'Miss Violence' - everything  good that was said about it, is propably true, at least for my taste.

Todd Haynes - Safe.
1995. Old school meldrama setting with negative atmosphere turned sect. One of the best films I've seen this year.  

Yasujiro Ozu - An Autumn Afternoon
1962. Japanese perfection. True auteur. I higly recommend all his films.

Tetsuya Nakashima - The World Of Kanako
2014. Visual æsthetic thriller. Anti-social family values.

Lucrecia Martel - La Ciénaga
2001. Disintegrating social contexts.

Christmas Eve & Christmas night:

WE ARE STILL HERE- pretty good haunted house with lots of gore by people that had something to do with House of the Devil & Starry Eyes (need to see SE again)
GUN WOMAN- US/Japanese film with lots of blood & nudity but no personality
MAD MAX: FURY ROAD- crap from start to finish
YAKUZA APOCALYPSE- vampire yakuza film I quit half way through

There's a Mythbusters marathon on the Science Channel so I've watched a bunch of those. MB is running for the next 8 days...

I just ordered a cheap copy of the blu-ray of MS .45 which is a film I haven't seen since the first time on rented vhs.

SHIVERS

Got the steel case Arrow blu-ray edition from a seller in Australia recently.
Had to splurge a little on the film as it's easily one of my all time favorites. 
Masterpiece.

I recently rewatched this. Hadn't seen it since the VHS hay days. Enjoyable and funny. Caught Bergman and Nykvist this X-mas. PERSONA. Have to say this one, in addition to Bergman's Hour Of The Wolf are his best. Also ravage through Denis' Bastards (Les salauds). Dark implosion. Can recommend that as well. Big fan of actor Michel Subor.

I watched a torrent of SHIVERS. I'm pretty sure it was the Arrow transfer. I'd order it if I had an all-reg bd player. Need to pick up THE BROOD soon.

Bruno Dumont's 'Lil Quinquin (2014)'.

Surreal crime mini-series marinated in black humour. Highly recommended.

I torrented this one recently plus Videodrome. Annual rewatch. Hadn't seen Brood in ages. The Brood still holds up quite nice. Great film, Croenberg is coming to rights as a director w an own artistic language. Ace transfer as well.

EDIT: The Brood was just reissued via Criterion. Should be excellent quality.

Cronenberg has several very good on his conscience, body horror! Personal favourites include Shivers, Scanners, Videodrome, and Dead Ringers. Would appreciate tips on other movies with similar themes. Extra orifices and such.
