Long time no read zarodinu, welcome back.
I do like The Saddest Music in the World, the rest I have not seen (5 I have not heard of before).
Hey! Good to be back!
I am emerging from a horrible place and am getting back into cinema. Saddest Music in the World is such a magical piece of weirdness Maddin was amazing. My Winnipeg and Careful are two more pieces of bizarro magic. I haven't checked out any of his new stuff, will need to see if anything is worth a watch.
I heard of Lichter and Not Quite Holywood, I put Lichter on my watch list, will let you know how it was. I have to ask, Why Ring of Bright Water #1? Trailer was opposite of what I expected.
I am glad you have been able to emerge from the horrible place.
I fully agree with your comments on Saddest Music in the World.
Lichter is a depressing film in many ways as it concerns the plight of desperate people who in other circumstances would be good people. However that is not the way they behave.
Ring of Bright Water is in my top 10 because the only time I saw it (when I was about 10) left a strong memory. So while it may not be the best film, for me it is a strongly memorable one, so there it goes.
