So my GF and I were watching a movie tonight and decided to check out the promo/trailers on the disc...

Anyway, we like "the odd"...and have an affinity for movies via this particular movie house(probably have 40+ of their titles).

I already bought it...but just wanting a slight clue as to what to expect...

Amazon reviews(all 7) range from "what was that?" to "great art film".

It's one of my top 100 films, but I recommend seeing WHAT TIME IS IT THERE first.  WAYWARD CLOUD is a follow-up to that one.

I saw a blurb where two of the characters "meet up again" in this one. I'll find the other movie as well.

Thanks for that.

Watched a bit of WTIIT last night (she and I were a tad drunk and distracted...)

 

What was up with peeing in a bag and, later, a bottle...??? (I made it to where he was smacking around the unbreakable watches at his "booth". Speaking of which, one of the reasons I like Korean cinema...they haven't quite gotten to the point where "people walking around" don't stare at the camera. Makes it quaint. Shows me what it must have been like shooting <50s Italian/French and <40s American cinema.)

WTIIT was a quirky little movie, just my speed. I didn't realize I was further along the first time I watched. I was already to her being in Paris checking out the "upstairs".

 

TWC is up this weekend.

You may also want to check out the short "The Skywalk is Gone".  It's not required viewing, but it does bridge the two films.  It's available as a bonus feature on the Goodbye Dragon Inn DVD.

I did watch TWC last night. What the hell was that?

 

Great visual experience and the music was great and odd all in one. Also I figured out this was Taiwanese...not Korean. Will probably pick up a few more of the director, L'Amour(or something like that) being one of them.

VIVE L'AMOUR.  It's a good one (well, I think they're all good ones, I'm a huge fan) and the only one I know of that has been released on Blu-Ray so far (Taiwan import).

 

My only advice would be stay from VISAGE until you've seen his other work.  It's in my top 100 of all-time, but it's very much a film that will only appeal to fans.

 

My favorite, FWIW, is THE HOLE.
