Movie Watching

I finally finished the last of the Trois couleurs last night. The last movie was Rouge. Bleu is still my favorite out of the three, but Rouge is pretty close to the top. The cinematography, colors, sounds, stories in all these movies are just flat out amazing. After finishing Rouge, I feel like I have to re-watch the entire trilogy again in order to understand everything. Even though the actual events and stories of the three aren't really connected, the messages behind them are. There are also commentary on the DVDs; perhaps one day I'll listen to those as well.

I didn't discover Kieslowski until recently with A Short Film About Killing. He has quickly become one of my favorite directors.

Speaking of movies, I bought the two-disc of Unforgiven last week. Haven't gotten through all the extras yet but that has to be the 6th or 7th time I've seen the movie. Still great every time. Also bought and watched the director's cut of Blade Runner. Still debating on whether Deckard was a replicant or not, but I'm leaning towards human now. Wished that DVD had some commentary or something. I also watched Solondz's Welcome to the Dollhouse. Good flick but I still like Happiness better. More recent movies, I saw Crash last week. I can definitely see why a lot of people have that as the best movie of 2005 so far.

Next up is Hidden Blade. It's directed by the same guy who did Twilight Samurai. Gonna be hard to top that.
