Dogs Don't Wear Pants.
Finnish flick. I bloody loved it. Dark yet funny and has an amazing ending scene. Recommended.

the man from mo wax - very early fuk nostalgia

Yep both amazing but Bone Tomahawk is the best. One of the best movies I’ve seen recently

Watched invisible man recently which was good and underwater which was bad but thingy looked good with a shaven head
Also been going through the Ghibli movies on Netflix - some I hadn’t seen yet

I only saw Zahler's stuff last year. So refreshing and he's the new point blank Tarantino with dialogue that is brilliant but not contrived like Tarantino can be.
I got Ghilbl ga Ippai LD boxset recently, been going through them all and some I hadn't seen also. Damn I hate Takahata, his movies are apologist garbage or marxist/nationalist propaganda. Seriously Only Yesterday is the worst. There is a 20 minute act about a girl getting her period, the rest is Japan agricultural union advertising. boring as fuck. Grave of the Fireflies I will never watch again, rip off of Bare Foot Gen and total Japan as innocent victim of world war 2 film. Saw that 20 years ago and picked up the propaganda pretty easily and hated it. I haven't seen Pon Poko for over 20 years either, I didn't have a problem with it at the time and pretty much loved ALL ANIME and I have to try to rewatch but I'm guessing my less naive self will pick up his usual bullshit themes in it, it's about a racoon village right? probably will end up seeing some subversion in it about co-opeartive/communist societies and nature or some shit.
I can take the nature shit from Miyazaki, for some reason he doesn't come off as preachy in his movies. And, well he's pretty much THE Master. Nausicaa, Laputa and Cagliostro are perfect films.

Grave of the fireflies is good but his other ones are pretty boring as far as I can remember. The standard ones are my faves I’d say - spirited, howl, totoro, ponyo, princess
In the same ilk, not Ghibli but I’m sure linked in some way and on Amazon Prime in UK - The Red Turtle is really really good. Silent cartoon about a dude that gets stranded on an island, surprisingly amazing and pretty short and sweet.
