Spanish film??
Loved it. Few years old now isn’t it?

Predestination was similar as far as I can remember. Underrated film. Bit weird considering I now have a thing about Sarah Snook in Succession.

Cosign on Predestination, it was very very good.

As well as the above recommendations I also recommend Primer, Coherence, Triangle and Perfect Strangers. Perfect Strangers is less sci-fi/time travel but similar premise.

Palm Springs while predictable, was a hoot to watch.

Thought The Endless was great. Can watch their film Resolution first as it sets up some of the ideas in The Endless (and the characters appear in it too)
They're really interesting directors, have you seen Spring? Really liked it.

Cheers for the brazil and la jetee recommendations, will watch them in due time.

I watched Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me yesterday. Didn't know what to expect as it's not a fan favourite but enjoyed it. Wish I saw it before I watched season 3 as I now get the references. It's definitely more Lost Highway than the camp melodrama of season 1 and 2 but found it really well done nonetheless. That Angelo Badalamenti soundtrack too Cool

Massive recs from me for Minari and Sound of Metal, both are pretty much perfect films.

Mogul Mowgli and Martin Eden both well worth a watch.

The Handmaiden (2016)

Keep rewatching this out of all the other Korean films I'm trying to go through this year, and can't help it thinking it's just perfect.

Started with this list on 1st of Feb.

Burning - Loved it, they seem to do really good thriller/mystery type films. Definately one of the top 10 out of the 25 I've seen so far on that list.

There really hasn't been one the korean films I've watched that I've not thought isn't amazing though.

Seen so far.




Thirst is the one bottom left you can't see.

Hopefully be able to finish them all by next month but struggling to find a few.

Yeah it's fantastic, seen the obvious ones like oldboy etc, but I do love Choi Min-sik as a villian, does it so well in every film.

+1 for the wailing. And memories of murder is one of my favourite films

Watched Saint Maud the other night. Amazing film. Dark, seedy and disturbing in places. Definitely a director to watch.

I feel like Parasite has got far too much praise in the West for being the best "Eastern" film.

Maybe it's becasue it's easily accessible and rather simple but I've been trying to persuade my friends to try other films, without any luck because they're "not as popular".

+1 for Memories of Murder, very good film builds tension atmosphere brilliantly.

New World is a nice gangster flick as well, reminds of Infernal Affairs.

Rough Cut and A Dirty Carnival are both worth watching if you’re into Korean gangster films.

Looking for some horror recommendations for a movie night. Real fucked up shit. Night terrors. Preferably English speaking but subtitles are good too. Thank you.

Is it comes at night scary? Got that recommended by a pal. I’m not the kinda person to watch trailers they always ruin everything.
