    I've never actually seen Forgetting Sarah Marshall, but Juno is good (once you get passed the first 10 minutes of godawful dialogue). My favourite film of that era is probably I Love You, Man, with Jason Segel and Paul Rudd. I don't know why it's fallen off the cultural radar in the way that FSM/Superbad/anything Judd Apatow, as it is, to my mind, the best version of this type of modern male friendship comedy type of sub-genre that has popped up in recent years. It's also really good and you don't need to really sit down and concentrate and all that muk. Which is great for doing the ironing!

    Also, if you liked Pickpocket, I would highly recommend seeking out Pickup on South Street. I think Bresson said that this film was the inspiration for his own, more meditative look at pickpockets, and it's pretty brilliant. It contains none of the Catholic guilt and much more noir-ish high-action violence! Indeed, it's probably my favourite film noir.

    I completely agree on Bresson, but find Pickpocket to be one of the catatonically boring ones. Loooooooooove Mouchette. That's the only one that I've seen without the completely flat narration that plagues most of his films, and I think that might be part of what I find so monotonous. (Although I like A Man Escaped an awful lot and that has the most narration out of all of them... maybe I'm just weird.)

    The Company is really good. It's a Robert Altman film, so it has virtually no plot, and its character work isn't up to par with something like Nashville (although that's a ridiculously high bar to clear so that's not the end of the world), but it's really, really watchable and features amazing dance sequences, and is a really good portrait of an institution such as a ballet company. Thinking back on it, it reminds me of a Frederick Wiseman documentary in its ability to combine the behind-the-scenes administrative tasks of such an institution with its more artistic side. Really good.

    I've got a number of friends who did medicine at uni and still managed to have lives. They just spent their free time partying instead of film-binging such as you do, and part of me assumed you're doing the partying AND the films and subsequently have no time for anything else!

    It's Such a Beautiful Day will probably destroy you, if the end of Spirited Away did. That being said, you should definitely watch it. But maybe with some tissues or something similar to mop up all the tears. maccrash told me that he cried three times during it so... yeah. Take that as you will.

    I wish I could go back and watch Black Swan for the first time all over again. Absolutely electric!

    Also, Jauja comes out in the UK on Friday, so that's what I've got to look forward to this week!

    Oh you're studying medicine! Say no more. I completely understand how that can swallow your entire life, so I'm impressed that you have time for film binges at all.

    And yes, I'm excited for Mad Men. The internet has gone thinkpiece crazy on the very subject, and I've just been hoovering these all up. Apparently Roger has a moustache!!!!!!!!!!! But that's all I know.

    I watched Two Lovers earlier today and it was... fine, I guess? To me, the simple story well told dynamic that worked for The Immigrant didn't seem to pay as many dividends in this one, but I get the impression that you like it a lot. Please explain its appeal to me!

    So glad you liked it, even though there was never a doubt in my mind that you would! I guess I'm just surprised that you've seen more later-Ghibli than earlier ones. I put together a ranking of all Ghibli films, so you should definitely work your way down this list (although you can definitely skip the last two; they're god-awful).

    ...you haven't seen Spirited Away!?

    You need to get that muk sorted right now. Stop whatever you're doing and watch it right now. Your friends are right to make fun of you, and they should continue to do so until you've watched it accordingly!

    I did love that cat, not gonna lie. Did you hear he had cancer quite recently?

    Princess Kaguya finally comes out in the UK today, so I'm going to see that straight after work. I saw When Marnie Was There when I was in Tokyo last year, so after tonight, I'll have seen every single Ghibli film ever, which I'm quite proud of!

    Saturday is the start of the London LGBT Film Festival, which is an offshoot of the main London Film Festival in October. I've never been to this one before, but there are some films that caught my interest when they were making the festival rounds last year that have popped up on this schedule (The Falling, Girlhood and Dear White People), so Saturday will consist of me seeing The Falling.

    Other than that, I am going to sleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep a lot. Work has been a bit long and stressful this week, so I'm going to look forward to getting reacquainted with my bed.

    If you loved Cherbourg, you'll adore Rochefort. They're not the same film by any means (the tone is quite different in each of them), but I'm sure you'll find much to like.

    I have the complete opposite reaction to Schwartzman than you do in that, for the most part, I've never really liked a performance of his. Not in a Wes film, not in Scott Pilgrim, and definitely not in Listen Up Philip. The performance of his that I've liked the most is probably I <3 Huckabees, but he's still the weakest link in that cast by far. As for Listen Up Philip, I went in expecting to love it and everything (except for the gloriousness of Elisabeth Moss) just fell flat for me. The dialogue felt overwritten and was a case of horrible characters being horrible to each other in a completely uninteresting way; the look of the film felt completely fake with its '70s style cinemtography that just looked like a bad Instagram filter; and it felt like it went on forever. To me it just felt all surface-level, without anything at all under the surface, except when it came to Moss' character, and that amazing close-up of her face. That nearly single-handedly saved the film for me, but by that point it was a case of too-little-too-late.

    And please don't apologise for the word vomit! I love reading word vomit! Much moreso than actual vomit. That's not nice to read at all.

You may not have won PC's Review Contest, but here's a silver pen that should hopefully bring back the memories. The happy ones at least.
