I guess they had their hearts in the right place, but my god, that's some terrible acting!

Can't believe this has not gotten more exposure. Fabulous and incredibly strong film about a jewish business man in France breaking down, realizing his wife is only with him for his money and that his daughter may not be his. Doesn't seem to hold anything back. Had it not been for the distinct early 30s style it could have been made today. Duvivier was a master. At just 75 minutes this is definitely a film you should check out. Heart wrenching. 9/10.

Another excellent addition to Coppola's filmography, if you've been found of his other personal projects you'll like this one as well. It's obviously mostly style over substance, so if that kind of stuff bothers you - stay away. But man, there's some utterly gorgeous photography in this one, particularly in regard to the dreamsequences. The story is thin and all over the place, perfect for this kind of film - playful and dreamlike. Enjoy!

I agree with The Major. This is a wonderful and tragic portrait. A Page of Madness, which I liked, was rather messy and hard to follow, while this is well structured and really delivers on the emotions.

Rather sad this is so ignored, I found it to be better than Orson Welles' version.

" if you actually read the blog you'll know that you can disable it by changing your privacy settings "

Will this change the lay-out back to what it was before? The only thing the privacy settings seems to change is what other people can see. And I hear from other members that if you make everything private you drop off the charts, etc.

I have no problem with other people seeing what I do myself, I just don't like having a giant activity stream on my profile page.

"What originally attracted me to this site, besides the awesome functionality, was the quiet visual design. I'm afraid that this part of the site is complete gone at the moment and I miss it dearly. I hope this will be addressed in the near future. "

Same. I never had any interest in Lists of Bests because it was just too messy. ICM was perfect. So easy to navigate through, the beautiful minimalistic lay-out. ICM still got more than a clean edge, but I think the power of simplicity is being overlooked.

The changes are currently being discussed on this thread on the forum. People do not seem to be too happy about this: http://s15.zetaboards.com/iCheckMovies/topic/7186262/1/

The main problem with this is the changes to your profile, instead of easily being able to scroll through your recently checked, faved and disliked films it's just one big mess. It took me a while, but I find that you can still separate between the three through the stats, but that's just the same as when the progress tab was hidden away, it just creates more work for us.

How about putting the Progress tab back on our main profiles and hiding the activity stream away? It would probably be an interesting feature if it wasn't so in the way/distracting for everything else.

There's also the issue of privacy, I think a lot of people want a way to just turn this off entirely.

Is there a price for dumbest twist of all time?

Yeah, Kin-Dza-Dza is probably the best sci-fi comedy of all time, rather surprising to see it excluded.

Some of the most pathetic shite I've ever seen.

It's not quite at this one's level, but sure, that's a really fun film as well. But few things beats animated penis fencing over who gets to fornicate with a goat. This is just SO wrong!

Among the greatest, most hilarious films I've ever seen!

Nothing could have prepared me for how powerful this would be. I'm shocked this hasn't gotten more attention. This is a movie, everyone, not only film buffs should see. It's power is universal. It even made me respect and appreciate the film industry over there, which seems to be on par with the Turks, but I could see the hope and joy they represents. The inclusion of humor and soul made the terror all the more horrifying and effective. You got to love these people, and you could see the fear living inside them. It's just shear brilliance, and I think every single person on this forum, and in this world, should see it.

Not quite sure there's anything to decode, but it is a truly marvelous film. Certainly Lynch's craziest effort.

I'll support Kaspar's rec. Now that is a great one! The only thing that was special about this film is how they managed to tell such a thin and simplistic story in an almost incomprehensible way. Talk about being all over the place.

A bit too in-your-face, unsubtle and message driven, but it's other qualities were stretching from really good to great. The maid managed to be quite intimating, and the whole situation was horrifyingly surreal. It's essentially what Fatal Attraction would have been if the woman lived in your house.

And yes, the ending, which was a moralizing epilogue to all men, was really god damn poor.
