With little persuasion needed I am adding Lagaan to the marathon. And I love movies that humanize immoral characters so I'm now adding The Woodsman as well. (Both credited to Bondo.)
Have you seen:
Kung-fu Hustle - I own the Blu-Ray, would easily fall between 101 and 125
Lars and the Real Girl - I liked where the film ultimately went, but it was far too precious in parts, especially in the first 10min.
Melinda & Melinda - Dull and Duller
Notes on a Scandal - Might be worth a 2nd look. Loved the performances (especially Dench who's a WOW!), but found it to be a highbrow version of a sleazy novella. More of a guilty pleasure. Would have liked more depth.
Vera Drake - This might be worth trying to persuade me. I'm really not a fan of Mike Leigh, but I liked Happy-Go-Lucky and I really like Imelda Staunton. Here's my problem... Mike Leigh doesn't know how to edit a scene. His scenes tend to begin when the first character enters the room and doesn't end until the last character leaves. Topsy-Turvy really ticked me off because there was a good movie inside the 160m of uncut footage. So, convince me that the story of Vera Drake is worth the 125min running time and I'll add it to the list.
What? Both of those animated films are fantastic, and one is maybe even better than Mr. Fox, which is high praise indeed.
This is talking at me, which isn't convincing me of anything.
And Dear God did I hate ATHFCMFFT.
What about Man Push Cart? I liked Chop Shop and really liked Goodbye Solo. Do you think I might like Man Push Cart the best?
And you're the big Satoshi Kon fan.
I still think Perfect Blue is his best film, though Paprika is really good. I liked Millennium Actress okay and never saw Tokyo Godfathers. Perfect Blue is from the 90's, but which of his other films should I watch or rewatch. And more importantly, why would I like it so much.
