How about you try Three Comrades out (should be available on youtube if you can't find a different way). Or, if you can't do that one, just re-watch The Mortal Storm. Because it's stupergreat.

Three Comrades is the one I'm most anxious to see. I even watched the first twenty minutes once before getting pulled away. Seemed very promising, though. Plus, I'd just seen William Dieterle's The Last Flight, and it seemed like those two films complemented each other very well.

Have you already been getting the word out that TCM is re-airing The Mortal Storm, and has Hearts Divided and The Spanish Main on the January schedule?

Ostrov (The Island) or Rivers and Tides. If you haven't seen either, flip a coin. ;)

I'm going to go with Rivers and Tides since it's already been idling in my instant watch queue for months, with no change in sight barring some motivation.

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

Little Man, What Now?

Sounds good (though I expected you to introduce me to Weerasethakul).

I have mentioned TMS. But the top 100 books must come first!

Some other really good ones you might have missed, pick one if you feel like it, they are all great:

Mr. Death - My favorite Morrisson documentary (he made Fog of War).
Faust - Silent by guy who made Sunrise.
Kiss of the Spider Woman - By the guy who made Pixote.
Kanal - A wonderful Polish war film.
Ive lied to men who wear belts. Ive lied to men who wear suspenders. But Id never be so stupid as to lie to a man who wears both a belt and suspenders.

Either one of these would be perfect. They've been been high on my want-to-see list forever. I've just never gotten around to them (despite having watched A Generation last year and expecting to see Kanal soon thereafter).

Oh. The only two I have seen that you haven't are exactly the ones I am least excited about. I'll have to think of something else and get back to you!

Well, if you're not going to recommend A Canterbury Tale, then I might have to.

I guess if pix can't find the other one.

I know you are a much bigger fan of the film than I am - it would be interesting to know where pix falls, but I'd rather be selfish and dictate something else.

Okay pix, pick one, I can't decide:

To Be or Not To Be
Another Country
The Adventures of Prince Achmed
Don't Look Now (Remember you once said you'd watch it in exchange for my watching Wild Reeds? But you really, really don't have to  ;D)

:)

To Be or Not to Be and Prince Achmed are both films I should watch again, but how can it not be Don't Look Now?

I can't remember what Another Country is. To IMDb, I go.

You've probably seen all these but whatever:

Harakiri
Stop Making Sense
Walkabout
Black Dynamite
Cleo from 5 to 7
Missing

Actually, I've only seen Walkabout and Cleo. Harakiri is near the top of my Netflix queue. The 80s Bracket keeps reminding me how much I want to see Stop Making Sense. And I've never seen a Costa-Gavras film, despite meaning to quite a few times. I keep considering giving Black Dynamite a look, but it hasn't happened yet.
