    Out of [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Timecode [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] - Not especially exciting, but an interesting bit of experimental filmmaking. Far better than Russian Ark and preceeded it by a few years.

    Leaving Las Vegas [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] - One of the best movies of the 90s.

    Liebestraum [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]1/2 - Weird and dark, but not entirely smooth running. Has what must be the longest urination scene ever put on film. Pamela Gidley, yow!

    Internal Affairs [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] - Decent corrupt cop flick.

    1. Miss Julie - A (A Strindberg play that Bergman directed for the theater 2-3 times. Love what Figgis did here with all handheld work)
    2. Leaving Las Vegas - B
    3. Time Code - C+ (about a 10th of the film Russian Ark is)
    4. Hotel - D

    Would like to see his remake of The Browning Version. The original is fantastic.

    Leaving Las Vegas (1995) - 6/10

    Made it through about 30 minutes of Loss of Sexual Innocence... absolutely horrible.
