A Field In England, tonight at 12.20am channel 4, a must for lovers of all things crazy.  affraid 
Make sure to watch or record this, it's a very strange and pretty sick film................so should be appealing to the vast majority of ATDers.  Very Happy

Donnie Darko passes a couple of hours. Entertaining enough but really sub-David Lynch style.

Life of Pi - superb book that gripped me from beginning to end. Not yet seen the film but heard good things about it.

Not life of Pi, but Pi as in the maths symbol by Darren Aronofski I thought Tis meant. Life of Pi was ok tho.

Pi is a different film from Life Of Pi.

The plot concerns an obsessive search to unlock secrets hidden in the Torah. Lots of maths, existential angst and Jewish lore all filmed in B&W and set to a bangin' techno soundtrack. If you like strange films and haven't seen this one then you know what to do.

How about Fantasia? WTF was that all about?

Sub David Lynch?

Life of fooking Pi?

Oh sorry, just noticed who posted that, probably hasn't had his medication.

David Lynch is the king of introspective over anal shiite. Life of Pi, Indian geezer in a small boat with tiger which doesn't kill him? Could have been a spoiler if the premise of the film didn't preclude the possibility of it being made any worse.

Interesting film that, DTT. Maybe the discussion didn't develop quite enough with this film. So perhaps I can help it along.
You might be totally unaware  cat  that this film has caused such a stir in the "racism" debate everywhere as to what is racist, and what is not, a subject dear to your heart I understand. And to Tiddles I understand who was very quick to the pen on this thread.  
Any thoughts on this quote ?

Directed by Tom Twyker and Lana and Andy Wachowski, the film's trailers, television ads and web banners not only place heavy-hitters Tom Hanks and Halle Berry in the film, but showcase creepy images of non-Asian actors wearing "slanty eyes." If you felt weirded out or was reminded of the times you may have heard someone yell, "Hey, chinky eyes!" from across the street -- you are not alone.


I personally find it rather disturbing and it goes back to all sorts of conventions long since discarded as unhelpful in a multi cultural society. I have plenty of other quotes out there that might be interesting to discuss, and I think it fair to say I lay on the Hairy J side of the debate.

Bloody hell was it!!!

I liken it to trying to get my head around the 'Matrix' after watching it for the first time. Come to think about - I still don't fully understand the Matrix. Good film though. confused

Synecdoche, New York

Enjoyable, but...........

"Synecdoche is closely related to metonymy—a figure of speech in which a term that denotes one thing is used to refer to a related thing.[1] Indeed, synecdoche is sometimes considered a subclass of metonymy"
More rigorously, metonymy and synecdoche can be considered sub-species of metaphor, intending metaphor as a type of conceptual substitution (as Quintilian does in Institutio oratoria Book VIII). In Lanham's Handlist of Rhetorical Terms,[8] the three terms have somewhat restrictive definitions, arguably in tune with a certain interpretation of their etymologies from Greek:"

I watched that. Just once. It confuddled me too much to enjoy, I'm afraid.

Being John Malkovich. At least I got that one.

From Dusk Till Dawn. Remember thinking 'wtf' when it all went vampish. Salma Hayek was proper fit, mind...
