Ouch that hurt, music and films being my two biggest passions  :giggle: You should check out Moonlight, The Revenant, Still Alice, Interstellar, Mad Max - Fury RoadGravity and Ex Machina - these are some of my faves and first ones to cross my mind right now. Though I'd also recommend Arrival - someone here it saw it earlier this year but I can't remember who -, Jackie, Elle, Dunkirk and La La Land. I enjoyed all of them a lot, and Isabelle Huppert was amazing in Elle which I saw a couple of weeks back. I see you've watched Melancholia, so I'd also recommend Lars von Trier's Nymphomaniac, it's not an easy one especially if you're not watching it in the two volumes but in full (4 hours) but I first saw it early 2015 and there's still something engaging about it. And while we're at it, The Lobster.

 

My boyfriend and I go to the cinema quite frequently and this year we've went to see 13 films so far, Handmaiden tomorrow and another 2 on Friday which I'm really excited about, most of all because the second one we're seeing is Darren Aronofsky's mother! and I've been looking forward to it for quite some time. I'm doing my best to avoid spoilers but from what I've heard it could be one of this year's most distressing and sickening films - and for some reason that just makes me want to see it even more. Now I'm not into hardcore gore and shit but psychological thrillers are the best and I really love Black Swan so my hopes are quite high at this point. Other recent/upcoming films I also have on my watchlist are Get Out, It Comes at Night, Justice League, Nocturnal Animals, Thor: RagnarokThe Enchanted, A Cure for Wellness, Murder on the Orient Express, All Eyez on Me and The Killing of a Sacred Deer just to name some. 

I made a Letterboxd account 2,5 years ago and since then I've watched 464 films, 120 in these last 9 months.  :flutter:

I've been obsessed with Heat by Paul Morrisey and Andy Warhol these past few weeks.

I'm generally not a fan of their works from that period of time as I don't care for their shoddy camera work, the ad libbed dialogue and the resulting loosely strung, barely-there plots, yet none of this matters with Heat. On the contrary, I think the respective actors and actresses have such natural prowess in and of themselves that this laissez-faire approach to filming adds a sense of realism and a kind of humour you don't find in other films, underground or not, and makes up for any of the film's shortcomings. I mean, Sylvia Miles (my DP) is fucking bomb. Her vibrancy alone makes it empowering to watch her, same goes for Pat Ast. Love the aesthetic of the whole film, its nuances, everything.

Basically you should watch it, the entire thing's on YouTube :) and there are so many quotable lines, I live.

Kind of disappointing how it ended, but it felt like the most realistic way to end it. :(

Truly a beautiful and incredible experience, wouldn't watch it again tho. It was so emotionally draining that it left me depressed for days lol

Ps: Brokeback Mountain is amazing, Michelle Williams performance is so incredible and heartbreaking it made me hate the gay couple

House of sand and fog is another excellent movie, it ends so tragically. I haven't watched it for years, but it's really great. http://www.imdb.com/...3/?ref_=nv_sr_1
