Yeah, while I find a good bit of Von Trier a bit too confrontational just for the sake of it, I do love a lot of his films (Dogville, Breaking the Waves, etc.). But my appreciation for him is as much for what he represents as a challenge to contemporary cinema, and for that reason I find The Five Obstructions particularly brilliant.

1. Mishima: A life in four Chapters (I'll include Patriotism) - Great Biopic / Stunning Cinematography and Score
2. Chungking Express - Very likeable feel good movie. California Dreaming a little too repetitive.
3. Bladerunner - Great atmosphere. Love watching this on a rainy day.
4. Dillinger is Dead - Isolationism with a hypnotic theme tune.
5. O' Lucky Man - I'm a fan of Malcolm McDowell. This is a great movie (slightly better than If…).
6. 8.1/2 - Struggling with 8.1/2. I want to *really* like it, it's theatrical and clever, but not quite absorbing.
7. O' Lucky Man - I'm a big fan of Malcolm McDowell. This is an epic movie.
8. Pale Flower - Very stylish (moreso than Suzuki's Branded to Kill), if a little claustrophobic.
9. Still life - A voyeuristic look into Japanese Family life (and death). Thought Provoking. Beautiful.
10. Fish Tank - Gritty Urban Drama. Great casting and locations.

lake mungo. Yea it was very freaky. loved the whole film. i went into it knowing more or less nothing about it. The twists in it were excellent really unexpected. Enjoyed it more than anything ive seen in a good while.

So glad that someone mentioned Chungking Express, only watched it once but never forgot it, love how it starts with his voiceover "on every flight you ever go on there's always a hostess that you want to fuck."
