Film Analysis, Genre Guides and Other Talk

Rather than fill up the Shoutbox and post things in unrelated thread, I thought I'd start a new thread where we can discuss cinema, request and provide recommendations, compile authoritative lists of genres for people seeking more along a certain vein, and all kinds of other shit. We'll try to avoid talking about the latest and upcoming blockbusters please - there are dedicated threads for such shit. This will be a thread for serious cinephile/cineaste/fag discussion.

Ok, on the back of Joe, Mud and Blue Ruin and the purchases of Killer Joe and Cold in July I'm on the lookout for more of the same (ie Southern Drama/Thrillers), anyone got any recommendations?

Has anybody watched any good films on Netflix recently? Just wondering if there's any sort of "obscure"-ish films worth watching that I might not have heard of. Dramas, thrillers and the like.

@Ali Joe and Blue Ruin are both on Netflix and if you haven't watched them then you definitely should. Great drama/thrillers.

I'll examine my Netflix "to watch list" when I get home and share some ones I've added.

I saw U Turn over the weekend which is more of a Western American film as it's based in the East of Arizona but it was moderately enjoyable. It's a little all over the place but some good turns from the likes of Nick Nolte, Billy Bob Thornton, Claire Danes and Sean Penn make it relatively entertaining. Jon Voight was a bit over the top and Lopez wasn't great but it's the sort of film that would pique your interest if coming across it on TV.

Looking at what's available on Netflix you can't go wrong with the likes of Cube and Primer if you haven't seen them already.

Rolling Thunder is on Netflix, this much I know. One of the all-time great revenge thrillers with William Devane and Tommy Lee Jones as Vietnam vets on the warpath and good old 70s violence.

U-Turn is alright IMO, entertaining enough but certainly not one of Stone's best. Twilight Time are releasing a Blu-ray of it next month btw.

Thanks, will add them to me list. Locke was listed as a recommendation on the IMDB page for Blue Ruin, that's also on Netflix. Has a decent IMDB rating.

@BarnDoor - thanks, will check it out.

@Phatmann - I watched Cube last year at some point at a mate's, pretty good. I saw a bit of Primer when it was on Film4 way back, but I was so tired I pretty much blanked out most of the film. It got to near the end and I just had no idea what was going on. It's on my list, so I'll give it another try sometime!

I think we all know Stone's greatest contribution to cinema:

I enjoyed Locke but I could see many finding it boring so be warned. It's certainly not a thriller.

Another Netflix recommendation I can offer is Funny Games. Don't listen to Barn's opinion on this. It is a little odd but I think it's worth seeing.

Funny Games has been one I've avoided for a long time, can't give a particular reason, just one of those where when I think of it I can smell the shit.

I watched Locke for five minutes or so, wasn't impressed with Hardys accent in it, might watch eventually though.

I thought his Welsh accent sounded like someone trying to do an impression of a Welshman, if you get what I mean. However, due to his decent accent work in the past I decided to give him the benefit of the doubt and assumed he had researched and practiced the accent correctly.
