Though I'd call the lines "cringe-inducing".

I guess that is a pretty big difference.
Yeah. As good as the film is, I don't think you're given an option but to cringe in a few moments.

I never did.

Perhaps you were too swept up by the overall experience.

They were nothing like the cringe-inducing moments in JD.

-James Bond: A little. But I won't consider myself to be in trouble until I start weeping blood.

Funeral Parade of Roses (Toshio Matsumoto, 1969)

This didn't do much for me. Maybe I just don't enjoy watching Japanese drag queens dance around naked for 10 minutes while tripping on drugs or whatever. It struck me as very Godardian with onscreen quotations, very little structure (that I can make out), scrambled chronology, playful formalist type things, you know, the works. That's stuff I find fun to an extent if done right. But, in here, I didn't find the cohesion between any of these things. It just felt ramshackle. None of these things helped me understand more and the weird chronology just threw me off (and when you actually do find out when things are taking place, it doesn't really make things better for me). I did find parts of the film very funny such as a confrontation between Eddie and Leda (they use fake guns with flags inside them and then thrash around like in a cartoon) but when the film I guess wants me to take things seriously with its Oedipal nonsense, I balk. There's nothing here that suggests any connection with the characters or what they're going through so to pull something like the film does at film's end is just annoying. I'll just stick with Go Go and Throw Away Your Books, thanks.

Nothing wrong with purposeful cringe.

Those Art Theatre Guild folks are interesting. There's a marathon in there somewhere.

Rome, Open City (Roberto Rossellini, 1945)
This is so great. It would've totally been a candidate for my top 100 had I seen it in time....

B+ (Right at the top end of the B+, so nearly an A-)
If B+ films are likely candidates for your Top 100 films of all-time, it's probably time to revise your grading system again. :D  Even if you claim not to have seen that many films, etc. etc.  I mean, I was totally shocked (but pleased) to see Black Orpheus on your list after you only rated it just a B+ a couple months back.

Hi, roujin.

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.
