    I loved Melancholia though. I think it's the most biting and no-holds-barred look at depression in film.

    Is that what it was about ? I never could understand it, or any other if his films. In fact if I never see another one I'll be only too happy :-P

    From my now down to basic collection: "the filth and the fury" a fun look-back at what were once the sex pistols and "the dance" a filmed Fleetwood Mac concert featuring a v intense Lindsay Buckingham. Also keeping "midnight cowboy" a classic story featuring two ultra grrrreat performance s from Jon Voight (iirc this was his debut) and Dustin Hoffman . Fallen by the wayside is regretfully "queen margot" "farenilli" and "karl lagerfeld confidential" amongst other niche/cult films. I will always remember them fondly.if only one day I have my very own screening room and vast vault library I would live happily ever after :-)
    Have a nice day!

    For a completely gripping and WTF documentary, I highly recommend The Imposter. I watched it on Sunday night and my mind is still blown.

    Some recent dramas I've seen:

    Eye Of The Beholder (Ewan McGregor, Ashley Judd, Patrick Bergin, Genevieve Bujold, Jason Priestley) - I love Ashley Judd and the rest of the cast, but I thought this one was a bit of a mess. But a somewhat interesting mess, if I may be so vague! I can only recommend it if you must see everything that either Ewan or Ashley has done and if you are just DYING to see a drama/mystery/thriller that has just a tiny hint of film noir to it...

    Grey Owl (Pierce Brosnan, Graham Greene and Nathaniel Arcand) - From imdb.com: "The story of the life and work of the Canadian fur trapper turned conservationist who claimed to be a Native American." I found this movie to be rather dry, but a part of Canadian history so I stuck with it. Another one to catch only if you want to see a bit more of Canadian history...or Pierce Brosnan.

    W.E. (Abbie Cornish, James D'Arcy and Oscar Isaac) - This had a cold, detached feel to it. That might have been intentional given the storyline of a woman in the present struggling with her life and looking for connections to a woman from the past she finds herself connected to (American divorcée Wallis Simpson...and her relationships with King Edward VIII). I just didn't find myself like or relating to anyone on screen. The movie is filmed well, so it looks great, but feels empty at it's core.

    The Rules of Attraction (James Van Der Beek, Ian Somerhalder, Shannyn Sossamon, Jessica Biel, Kate Bosworth, Swoozie Kurtz and Faye Dunaway) - I couldn't remember if I had seen this one before, so I took a copy home to see. Since I had, I just scanned it while doing other stuff. It's definitely an interesting movie and I'm sure I enjoyed it much more the first time around. This time I just felt saddened by so many lost and lonely people. I recommend it, but don't watch it if you're in a down mood!!
    It's official. I am madly in love with Meryl Davis.

    I love Sarah Polley's work.

    I need to see American Hustle, but after Silver Linings Playbook, I'm hesitant to see another David O. Russell/Jennifer Lawrence project that will get undeserved accolades. I dread seeing critics drool all over it the way they went ga ga over Lawrence last year for a mediocre performance.

    I read high praise for Amy Adams for American Hustle. I am really interested in that movie. I would love to see Amy win an Oscar in the near future. She has been nominated many times. I normally love Jen Law but I really felt she was overrated in Silver linings playbook.

    I love Sarah Polley's work normally, but I was somewhat underwhelmed by Stories We Tell. It wasn't bad, but far from the best documentary I've seen lately -- it just seemed too detached for me.

    If I were going to pick the best Canadian documentary of the year that would probably be Our Man in Tehran. But I don't think that one has had US release yet. And maybe never will if Ben Affleck's people have their way.

    I remember thinking this felt more like a music video, which isn't a surprise since Madonna directed it. Gorgeous soundtrack (very skating friendly actually) , but Otherwise, meh.
