Curious, did you happen to see it at Frightfest like me?
Unfortunately, no - I bet it was quite the experience watching it in that kind of environment though!

It certainly was quite the experience and not just because of the film. I will never forget, the last dude that came up for the audience Q&A after the screening of the film basically said to Paul Hyett that he thought the pacing of the film was awful and would the director reconsider re-editing it!

Letters to Juliet is just a charming film set in Verona and the surrounding countryside. Besides most people round here love films with Franco Nero and Fabio Testi in them.

Sint is one i'm almost stunned you haven't seen. Dutch director Dick Mass's take on the Saint Nicholas legend. Very gory and a lot of fun. You really need to watch it this coming Christmas.

The American starring George Clooney as a hit man hiding out in a small Italian village is a superb film. A lovely languid pace with gorgeous cinematography. Highly recommended. Paul@The Overlook also rates this very highly.

A Dangerous Method - David Cronenberg - need i say more?

My Week with Marilyn - Behind the scenes on the Prince and the Showgirl. kenneth Branagh is superb as Laurence Olivier.

Juan of the Dead and Kill Zombie! - Two terrific takes on the usual zombie outbreak stuff.

Mindflesh - A gloopy, gory, utterly bizarre, mind **** of a movie. A certain Mr. Teardrop recommended this.

Thanks for a breakdown of some of those, Dem.

Sint and Mindflesh sound particularly interesting - I've added the latter to my rental list just now and will have to make a mental note to rent the former around the Xmas season.

A Dangerous Method is the only Cronenberg film I've yet to see, having watched Maps to the Stars the other week.

I'm the same, I looked at my collection for inspiration and 80% of my collection is pre-1990! Most films today don't really do it for me.

I've always considered myself more a fan 'older' cinema too (especially the '60s-'80s), but there are certainly some great films to be found in more recent times - I guess it depends on what you're into and how deep you're willing to dig though I suppose!

I'd certainly say that in a lot of ways the 2010s is shaping up to be a more interesting decade cinematically than the 2000s or the 1990s were... at least for me.

The Strange Colour of Your Body's Tears is currently on its way to me - I've been meaning to check this one out for a while having enjoyed its pre-cursor, Amer.
