Sorenr Tagged Me

I knew someone would tag me for this one sooner or later. I was kinda dreading/longing for it

1) Total number of films I own on DVD/video:


2) The last film I bought:

Ai No Corrida
Au Hasard Balthasar
M. Verdoux

There's this new shop in town which sells interesting titles at an equally interesting discount. I'm greedy. Show me a rack of DVDs and I'l fill my basket.

3) The last film I watched:

M. Verdoux. I wrote a review a few days back.

4) Five films that I watch a lot or that mean a lot to me:

I don't tend to watch films over and over. There's too much out there I haven't yet seen....

Winter Light. I love Bergman and this is his most nearly perfect film.

Being There. I must get this on DVD. Peter Sellers gives the greatest performance of his career/in cinema history.

Akira Kurosawa's Dreams. Not Kurosawa's greatest film. It's much too uneven. But parts of it are heartbreakingly beautiful.

A Canterbury Tale. A really peculiar, wartime uplift film from Powell and Pressburger. It explains why we had to fight- and win- WWII. The climax, in which dreams come true, brings tears to my eyes.

La Dolce Vita. Everyone remembers Anita Ekberg cavorting in the Trevi fountain, but there's much, much more to it than that.... 

5)Tag 5 people and have them put this in their journal:

Sorry guys-

jackiejj , halfmoon_mollie , manfalling ,morrison_maiden , hepo


One of my friends just deleted her journal.

Of course she has every right, but, my, it's frustrating not to be able to call it up and re-read recent entries and hazard a guess at why.

The LJ universe is as unstable as the "real" one.

Oh look-

A falling star.......
