pixote's super slow dictation marathon
« on: October 25, 2010, 03:48:04 PM »
I'm not watching enough movies. There's really just Far East bracket films and my unofficial What's the Worst Thing I Can Rent from Redbox marathon. My Netflix and DVR queues are both pretty stagnant. I don't like this.

In need of motivation, I'm stealing FLYmeatwad's idea: a never-ending marathons of dictations from fellow filmspotters. Give me one film to watch and I'll watch it. I'll probably only refuse a dictation if it's a film I've seen, since I'm mainly looking to discover new films. But, yeah, hopefully you'll dictate films you think I like, rather than films you think will hurt my soul.

Alright, then, what should I watch?

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

Since it's still on my mind from the "Create a DVD Box Set" thread: Orlando, Sally Potter's magnificently inventive and enigmatic adaptation of Virginia Woolf, with a grand performance by Tilda Swinton.

It also bums me out that apparently no one else in the John Huston thread has seen The Dead.

So take your pick between those two.

I've always meant to see both, so I flipped a coin (literally) and the Hustons won.

I just recorded The Dead from TCM, how exciting!

How's about a nice Borzage movie, pix. What have you seen?

I'm curious if you can get your hands on Oxhide II.
