Loved The VVitch and loved this one two. Great drinking film, and great psychological/psychedelic thriller, probably unlike any other. Isolation, insanity, misguided love, and getting wasted on kerosene.
I'm going to watch the lighthouse flick tomorrow. :popcorn:
I can't get in the mood to try watching this one.

Has anyone seen "The Platform" yet? my God, it is disturbing!
is the platform comparable to those human centipede movies? If so, I'll skip it.
Not at all. It was certainly created with outside of the box thinking. Watch the trailer.

The lighthouse movie may be the worst flick I have ever seen. I cant believe the cast they talked into doing it.
Still hunting for opium paraphernalia.

I didn't want to watch the trailer for risk of being caught out with scenes I wouldn't appreciate. I'll watch it on your recommendation .... .

Anyone ever see the movie Saint Jack?

It's in Singapore but reminds me of some of the grittiness of cambodia
The Counter-Imperialist: Reflections on Bogdanovich’s Saint Jack (1979) by a Singaporean

However, when we consider Jack’s general position in Singapore society – that of the survivor, rather than the conqueror; the negotiator, rather than the hawk – thankfully, we are relieved of the unfair assumption that under the trademark Batik shirt lies an unapologetic imperialist. Jack, a proud member of the camp that frequents Bugis Street (along with transvestites, hookers, and any mixture of the two) and who is besieged by both the triads and the police, is as much a part of Singapore as the transvestites themselves: the some say “unsavoury,” some say “real” part of Singapore that, today, has been lost to the crushing mouth of history. Jack is an immigrant. An immigrant who has found a living in Singapore, a country that, as Bogdanovich duly points out in the trailer, is like an “Eastern America” in that it is both a land of immigrants and a beautiful cacophony of ethnicities (if we discount the troubling neo-supremacist movement brewing in the US today).

What enables such observations to be made is the compromising position of Jack Flowers (and, to an extent, Theroux himself) as the white man who happens to be living (and not vacationing) amongst locals; the white man who, at once, employs and is employed by locals and who doesn’t spend most of his time with other white folk in a gated compound in the outskirts of the city.
