Simple enough topic, post about whatever the most recent film you watched.

I'll start by saying I'm watching To Each His Own (1946).

smurfrevolt,

What class do you teach? I'd be interested in what your students [i]said[/i] about M. That's one of my favorite movies, and I find it pretty damn cool that they'd be into a 1930 German film.

Tie Me Up, Tie Me Down (1990)

I liked it, but I say that about every Almodovar film. Trying to get myself psyched up even more for Bad Education, which is coming out here in Chicago the last week of December.

Rote Sonne aka Red Sun by Rudolf Thome (West Germany / 1970)
A film about 4 women living together who kill every lover they have after 5 days. When an ex-boyfriend of one of the girls arrives, things get complicated.
The whole movie is an interesting metaphor on male/female relations nowadays (or the ones of the 1970s in west germany ), with much symbolism.
Interesting, but I didn't "get" it all.

Not a whole movie but the first part of Three Extremes - Box directed by Takashi Miike, it actually surprised me at how thought provoking it was which is rare for the majority of Miike's output. I'll watch the other parts when I can find some spare time.
