JDC's list is full of films I know are good, but the characters are so off-putting that I struggle to enjoy the experience. I'vr seen many of them and it makes me afraid of what's left.

Happiness is the highest film on the list I haven't seen, followed by The World of Kanako and Antichrist. But I think maybe I'll check out The Descendants. :)

For sure, The Descendants is the best choice then.  The others are a struggle for sure though Happiness is funny.

I just watched Happiness a couple weeks ago. It's uncomfortable as hell, but I highly recommend it!

It sounds like it could be tough, but not hopeless. I could handle that if that's the case.

Looks like my two options are The World of Kanako and Naked Lunch.

I’d like to rewatch Stop Making Sense because I don’t remember it all all, and that  doesn’t seem right.

The only two on your list I haven’t see is Deep Water, about which I have little interest and  Carnal Knowledge, which I think I should see.

Not sure how anybody could forget Stop Making Sense;)  though I know others have shunned or have little interest in concert films so it failed for a few. I was not really a Talking Heads fan and this one showed me the errors in my ways.  But even now, I revisit this more often than just listen to their music

My love for Deep Water was probably tied more to having loved the book, A Voyage For Madmen.  Not sure if I would keep the doc up there now having not revisited it in so long. But certainly better than the movie based on the same, The Mercy.

Carnal Knowledge also needs a re-watch for me. I've watched it a number of times when I was younger and was a favorite but not likely seen it in 25 years.

I watched Deep Water for a previous Top 100 Club and found it fascinating.

ooh! I recently watched Anomalisa, so I'll write something about that one too. The other ones I'd like to see this time around are Ex Machina and Shaolin Soccer.

There are two films called Samsara. Is yours 2001 or 2011?
