Oh I loved the 90s, though the 80s are my favourite. Very much like the 70s too (and am still exploring it) and have only just recently started venturing into the 60s. There are still some very good movies and there's a couple of actors I like to follow, but an awful lot seem to leave me cold these days. Must be getting old.

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.
You can get Sint new for the price of postage at the moment. It's well worth a punt.

Saint [DVD]: Amazon.co.uk: Huub Stapel, Egbert Jan Weeber, Caro Lenssen, Escha Tanihatu, Bert Luppes, Dick Maas, Tom de Mol: DVD & Blu-ray

It'll probably go up in price nearer Christmas.

As for Cronenberg,I need to pick up Cosmopolis and Maps to the Stars in the future.

Ordered a copy myself, seem to remember adding it to my wishlist when you originally reviewed it

Does anyone else think the guy on the cover looks like Papa Emeritus from Ghost?

Fairly sure Papa doesn't ride his horse over the rooftops.

Perhaps PE's look is based on St Nick too.

Here's a couple of fistfuls from the last five years -

Under The Skin
Berberian Sound Studio
Black Swan
Upstream Colour
Snowtown
Beyond The Black Rainbow
Only God Forgives
Nightcrawler
Moebius
Big Bad Wolves
Amer
Final Flesh
Blue Ruin
The Rambler
Kill List
A Field In England
Blood For Irina
Holy Motors
Melancholia
Honeymoon

There are many others though, and ask me on another day and I'd tell you a different story. There's some pretty good stuff being made at the moment. I'm optimistic about the state of weird / cult / whatever cinema.

I thought that Mindflesh was absolutely AWFUL myself! Wish I still had the dvd case to sell it!

Some more potentials added to the watch-list there... Merci Monsieur Teardrop.

The list has been amended thanks to the fantastic Coherence.

'Strange Colour' should be tonight's viewing so I'm sure it will shift again.
