What are your personal favourite movies that the rest of the world has apparently 0 interest in, /tv/?
I don't think I can express just how much I love The Grey
It's pretty much universally overlooked, so I assume there's just something about it that works for me on a personal level and I don't know why since the movie's kind of fucking depressing, but it's just such an unusual story.
Fucking 10/10 in my book.
I like The Grey too, anon. The first half didn't really cut it for me, but holy hell does the movie get good in the second half. That shot of the lake towards the end is beautiful, and the ending itself is GOAT.
Miller's Crossing. It's a Coen Bros film that I have never heard mentioned anywhere, but it's practically my favourite. I can rewatch it pretty much endlessly, but I can't articulate exactly what it is that makes it really click for me.
Fitzcarraldo. Every shot is a masterpiece but no one wants to sit through the whole thing. The cinematography, the effects, the score, it's all perfect. Seems like it's always overshadowed by Aguirre.
i saw burden of dreams and it's crazy all the shit herzog had to go through to make this movie. i even heard one of his crew members had to get his leg cut off with a chainsaw because he got bit by a snake. don't know how true that is, but holy shit.
Legitimately a great movie. I'm curious what else is in your top 5, I've been looking for more like Snow Piercer but I've had a lot of difficulty. I like that it's kind of fantastical but so solidly put together.
But the fact that they did make millions means the world did have at least some interest in it.
i love Eyes Wide Shut. people tend to reduce it to "ORGY LMAO" but it's actually a really heartfelt examination of the masks we wear in relationships and the lies we tell ourselves. Beautifully shot, and easily Kubrick's most thoughtful, accessible, and human film.
I guess that's a fair point, I guess it would have been better to say "easily forgotten movies that you love?"
Pic very related.
Conspiracy (2001) is an awesome movie. Fitted out very well, indeed. Really, really compelling setting with a magical winter atmosphere. Very good mostly British actors. Branagh is a good actor, of course, even though I really would have loved to see a physically larger actor representing Heydrich.
