Greener Grass went under the radar last year. Only if you like your cinema really weird.

"Parasite" is a twisty, bloody thrill ride that is best enjoyed if you go in blind.
"Don't look up anything prior," advises actress Park So-dam. "Just come in without any expectation and no knowledge of the film."

One of the best movies last year, or widely regarded as. At least as far as camerawork goes, it's in the master class. It's a wild ride anyway, and definitely worth a viewing. Going in blind is a must.

I'm just at the beginning of watching once upon a time in Hollywood. hell of a cast.

I finished it. I'm not a Tarantino fan, but I liked this movie a lot. unbelievable cast. it's a good flick to watch.
Interesting coz I'm a Tarantino fan and I was really looking forward to this movie. I thought the acting was great but somehow I got bored with the plot half way through..

Interested to hear what other members thought.
Some interesting depictions of Manson Family members, about 15 minutes of this otherwise long, tedious, boring waste of film.

I've got nothing recent to recommend, not off the top of my head anyway, with regards to cerebral films though,
my favorite SciFi movie is Primer:



It's about 2 guys, accidentally inventing a time travel machine & the consequences.
Really hard to follow, takes multiple viewings for smarter people than me, but in the end it all adds up, which in itself is quite the achievement for a time travel movie.

This might help:

"Now I understand why I didn't understand the film. I still don't understand the film, but I understand why I don't understand it."

My favorite David Mamet movie is Glengarry Glen Ross with Al Pacino, Alec Baldwin, Alan Arkin, Jack Lemmon, Ed Harris, Kevin Spacey from 1992.
It's a fantastic movie, all talk no explosions, jazz soundtrack by James Newton Howard i believe. Mamet has always been the master of sharp, witty dialogue & it shows.
