If you could go back now "George Lucas style" and adjust those things you disliked in the film in question, would you?
My original list:
1. Fanny and Alexander - The fart scene. Even Bergman can't save a fart scene. Eh, I guess not. It's a brief moment, and it shows that Uncle Carl has a lighter side.
2. All That Jazz - The "Air-otica" number drives me nuts, especially the "Don't forget to ask about the FUN FUN FUN plan!!" guy. Well if you took this out, we'd never have the "Straight Up" video! I would take out the "fun fun fun plan" line though
3. El Norte - All of the white actors in it are pretty bad. I guess we've gone beyond Lucas-style editing and are now actually travelling back in time to recast the movie. I don't think it matters that much, the roles are very small... maybe just the restaurant guy.
4. Stop Making Sense - Bernie Worrell's noodling (and don't get me wrong, I love P-Funk, but Worrell is responsible for a lot of their shitty stuff too) Yeah I'd give Worrell a talking-to before the show. "Lay off that pitch-bend wheel, my man"
5. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind - I really wish it was almost anyone besides Jim Carrey. that's too big a change to consider
My actual top 5 list:
1. Scenes From a Marriage - hmmm... I guess I hate that there's two versions. I always feel like I should watch the longer version, but I prefer the theatrical cut. no
2. Mahanagar - Ha, this is the same as my El Norte complaint! The white actress (Vicki Redwood, and I'm amazed I didn't have to look that up) is not very good. No... she's not a great actress, but she's memorable.
3. Time of the Gypsies - The cinematography could definitely be better. No, the richness of the story makes up for it
4. Casablanca - I can't think of a single thing I would change. well, duh
5. The Hole - Needs a couple more of those musical numbers! ooh, I dunno. It would undoubtedly change the film's pacing drastically, and Tsai's pacing is extremely deliberate. I just hope he makes at least a couple more movies with musical numbers
