Twitter or text is the best way to get a hold of me these days. I probably wouldn't have noticed this message for days until Adri texted me about it! Yes, it's been too long. My weekends are kinda stacked up until March - partially with work, partially other commitments - but afterwards, I'll be relatively free and easy. Let's organise something for then!
Sort of, but not really. I'm trying to get the two of them in line, but they've both been busy this week with work. Once we've got some dates floating around, I'll let you know. (You might have to wait a while, though!)
Also, if you get any messages from unknown people in the next few days, it might be on account of me giving Will your number last night when we were at a pub near his work. He said he'd be verrrrrry up for meeting you in Brighton, though! So, that's a plus.
It's mostly the list itself, which I find is an interesting balance between the typical young-white-dude-cinephile mindset (the stupidly high placements of Pulp Fiction and The Shawshank Redemption), and the more obtuse stuff that would be at home on a Sight & Sound/Cahiers du Cinema list (Shoah/Satantango etc.)
And cool! Glad to have you back in the UK. I'm still in London. As always. Fun times!
If you're interested in a slightly more arthouse top 250 films list, I'd check this one out. It's not perfect and has its own biases, but it's light-years ahead of the IMDb top 250. Your precious Stalker, for example, is at #35 - I cannot stand it, but understand that I'm in the cinephile minority on that one! - and there are two Bela Tarr films in the top 100 alone!
Also hi. Are you still in the Netherlands or back in the UK or somewhere else exotic!?
