ITT: 10/10 Films
This is the greatest and most beautiful film I've had the pleasure in watching
Who cares? You'll just watch some other slightly obscure 30 year old film next week and forget all about it. Hey ever heard of this great director named Jim Jarmusch?
>Extremely entertaining despite being mostly filmed in one room
God this movie is great
Do I even have to explain?
op here, I know how you feel
The first time I watched it I felt so many emotions that I couldn't tell if I was sad, satisfied or happy for the boy and the mother
either way the film left me impressed
What was stopping the mom from seeing her kid when she knew where he was, the kid knew he was adopted, and HDS was missing basically? What the fuck did HDS leave the kid with a young, inexperienced single mother working as a psuedo-hooker who tried to set him on fire last time he saw her. Why did he think leaving was a good idea when there was literally nothing stopping her from seeing him in the first place?
The movie was entirely dependent on the mystery of HDS and his condition/history, but it quickly fell apart into a cliche, sappy family drama with the worst ending possible: a feel good ending that makes no fucking sense. Completely underwhelming with disjointed quality, but a great performance by HDS.
It's my favorite movie as well. Fuck this movie. I can't exactly pinpoint why it's so good
Same here. Broke down crying like a little bitch twice watching Paris, Texas and for most of the movie I could hardly breathe.
The scene in the club where he's describing how much he loved her through the two-way mirror, and that final scene. It's the only time I've actually needed a lie down to recover after a film.
It touched me in places I didn't know existed and I don't even know how it did it. My bottom lip quivered slightly just thinking about that club scene again.
tfw youll never watch a movie like possession again
This one took me completely by surprise. The two leads (Burton and Taylor) are perfect and the writing is ingenious. I don't want to say any more for fear of spoiling it but for me it's a 10/10 all round.
Seconding Midnight Cowboy. I never see it mentioned here but I think it's probably Dustin Hoffman's most impressive role, which is saying something.
That's another one with a great OST too.
It's a very slow, subtle film compared to most (especially modern popular movies) that's for sure. First time I watched it I turned it off after about 8 minutes because my mind was wandering.
Tried again a year later after a few beers, concentrated hard on it and it hit me like a locomotive.
it's insanely extreme but there's substance and it's about something. the director was or had gone through a divorce when making it and thats a stem of what i think its about.
The two main characters have doppelgangers and I see it as thats what their ideal partners are. And she was lonely because he was away for too long so she started seeing other people and eventually forgot who she was, went nuts, etc
Could be completely wrong, only seen the movie once but it left the biggest impact on me. Gunna watch it again soon
>from Paris, Texas
>been coming to /tv/ for five years now
>see a Paris, Texas for the first time
>wut is life
Fun fact: Paris, Texas had 0 scenes shot in Paris, Texas. All in Dallas and several other metroplex areas. Also it was such a good movie. 10/10
>a feel good ending
have you even seen this movie
it has something of a flaw: the soundtrack
wenders has a tendency to repeat theme music ad nauseum, like in Kings of the Road
Like many other posters in this thread, I wept uncontrollably through the final 30 or so minutes of this film. I think it was over the fact that they loved each other but knew that their relationship could never be repaired.
Definitely tops Wings of Desire for me. It might be my all time favorite.
>Why does this woman tend to appear as a cunt and a lesbian?
Size is relative though.
I guess for Agent CIA he's a big guy but for a normal or above average sized guy? You're probably right. For example I'm 5'11", is Tom Hardy a big guy for me? He's 5'9" so, no. I'm a big guy for him.
>thinking that being a big guy is about physical size
it's clearly a metaphor for how big his heart is
what CIA means by 'you're a big guy' is that Bane is a guy with a big heart and lots of love to give
Bane replies 'for you' and the rest is history
It really benefits by being derivative. And I don't mean that in a bad way. It's clearly a very studied movie that is able to pick up exactly what it needs from decades worth of other noir films. Just masterfully shot, and well directed too.
I've come to love the fuck out of this movie upon multiple viewings
it may not be patrician to say bet ye know it t'be true
Jaws is one of the few patrician blockbusters just for Captain Quint man
I'd say yes, if two of the votes weren't absolutely stupid
One is just I WANT TO GO HOME, and the other(which basically kick starts the whole thing), is just "Ive never met you before, but I trust your word"
he doens't trust the man, he just thought it was worth discussing out of respect for Juror 8's wishes. He said he thought the kid was going to end up guilty, but decided it was their duty to the defendant to at least talk the issue over considering somebodies life was on the line.
also yes, for a movie thats entirely 12 dudes in a room talking to each other it ended up being surprisingly engaging and far wittier then most movies you see today.
>it's accepted by the mainstream therefore it's bad
Never see this posted much, but I think it is a really great stage to screen adaptation. Really bleak but well done.
as usual i will get 0 replies. beautiful movie from start to finish. no idea how he managed to make every character likeable and well cast, even the minor ones.
also dat soundtrack
