    Oh god, I wish partying was a thing at my university or at this part of the city, but the student base and people in general here are predominantly Muslim and conservative about it (I'm Muslim but an incredibly liberal one). My sort of partying would be hanging out all night with my best mates and driving around Kuala Lumpur doing f-ck-all.

    Sounds good, will check it out tomorrow or something. I had a free day today and pretty much spent my morning in the room watching two Robert Bresson movies. I'm working on finishing his filmography, and I've seen 6 so far (loved Mouchette and Pickpocket). Interesting guy but his movies can be catatonically boring sometimes (and the catholic themes are lost on me for the most part).

    I know! I saw your Letterboxd and saw that you watched The Company by Altman; it was mentioned in a Black Swan thread over at Criterion Forums and I was looking to watch it as well and I was surprised you'd seen it recently. How was it?

    Medicine takes up a lot of my time but I make time for other stuff (like movies! or going out with peeps). It's not as time-consuming as most people make it out to be if you can divide your time well (thank God I've grown out of my phase of procrastinating everything). It helps that I'm in the pre-clinical years; sadly I think I'd have to sacrifice my movies by next year when I enter the clinical phase. Which sucks. But oh well.

    I have NOT seen a Don Hertzfeldt animated feature yet, but all the good reviews for It's Such a Beautiful Day is making me want to check it out fosho (before World of Tomorrow of course). What should I be expecting? Will it break my fragile little heart??? I don't think I can take another emotionally-charged animated film (goosebumps still from that song at the end of Spirited Away).

    yeah I've gotta dig into his stuff someday. speaking of ****ed up ****, I watched Videodrome and Blue Velvet in the past two days. the latter was Incredibly Disturbing but ultimately amazing, and Videodrome was just so bizarre. I liked it a lot. I loved the ~last 20 minutes especially. Cronenberg's another guy whose stuff I really need to delve into. I picked up The Fly awhile back so I've gotta watch that soonish.

    I've seen Synecdoche like five times and it gets better every single time. first time I saw it I was still convinced it was now one of my favorite movies -- I didn't find it to be nearly as much of a mind**** as most people said it was, and weirdly it got more confusing to me the more times I watched it, but I still think it's pretty cut-and-dry. maybe because I tend not to focus on the symbolic is-it-still-the-play-or-is-this-his-life-now speculation and just the overwhelming bleakness of it all and how poignant that alone is. I am only familiar with Viridiana because of it being Bunuel. gonna have to look into it! only thing of his I've seen is Un Chien Andalou (which Alex should also watch)

    only Eraserhead and Pulp Fiction as of right now, I believe. he saw something about Synecdoche, New York which interested him and it might be my favorite movie ever so I think we plan on watching that soon. me and user Harley Quinn might also start watching some together as well -- think we've got Paris, Texas on the hook.

    hahahah he actually told me that he wanted to watch this one on his own presumably because of how Special he finds It's Such a Beautiful Day. but we have watched films together before and it is very fun.

    yup I plan on watching it today. thanks for notifying me. poor Alex is away for the next few days so he can't watch it yet sucker

    Two Lovers! Very beautiful movie, though I haven't seen it in quite a while. There's so many things going for it; the acting (Joaquin hit another home run here but Isabella Rossellini was particularly poignant), the tremendous amount of pathos Gray nurtures for each character and placing them in this incredibly ambivalent and painful relationship story where no one wins, Gray's devotion in depicting a specific community (and he does so quite beautifully with the Russian-Jewish people), but above all his flair with tone is so on-point here. I'm not sure how I can explain that in particular, but it's just so full to the brim with mood. Heck, even that one scene where Joaquin dances in the club had an unmistakable hint of melancholy. Genuinely lovely all-in-all, and I felt like my heart got torn to pieces in the end, which is a testament to how potent the film was to me (I'm usually unfazed by romantic films otherwise).

    REGARDLESS, this movie poster for Two Lovers is top-to-bottom vom material.

    Also! Nice to see Spirited Away at the top of your list! I might watch Porco Rosso or Princess Mononoke when I get the time. School piling up once again. I have my Professional Medical Exams 1 this August so I've pretty just been studying. I get to see one movie or two on the weekdays but I pretty much just binge the hell out like a pig on weekends. It's funny especially considering my movie craves usually start at the end of the year and go away around the time the Oscars wrap up... but the constant craving's staying a lot longer than I've expected.

    Don't bother with Season 1 aka the Forgotten Season aka The Season of No Budget, start with Season 2. Season 3 is my personal favourite.

    Harley Quinn
    I like Violet, but that's more because I want to suck her off rather than her drag talent. Other than that, there's really no one else I want to root for. See, the problem that's been around for the last three or so seasons is that it's become far too focused on the comedy/crazy queens. There's just not a healthy mix and the challenges have changed to reflect that, these last four episodes being outlandishly, well, bad. There's not enough focus on the clothing aspect of drag. Season 6 for example had no fashion queens or really any other type of performer aside from the aforementioned comedy queen.
    While I hate to use the term so unwillingly given to us by the Fonz, Drag Race has jumped the shark.

    Oh God. Why'd I put it away for so long. It's as great as people say it is. By the end, when they played this when Chihiro lets her hand away from Haku's, I started welling up (not to mention the scenes where Chihiro eats that rice cake and crying and where Haku finally gets his name back). F-ckkkkkkkkk, movies don't ever do that to me. Such a great film. I can't thank you enough for forcing me to see this. What an experience. Can't wait to tell my friends about it, even though I'm pretty much so late to the Miyazaki party.

A bit of background is necessary for this one, as it's my favourite in this burgeoning 'series' of blog posts and a bit of context goes a long way.

At the end of last month, in and around Thanksgiving, I went to the US for just over a week to visit some friends out there (one in New York who is from there originally, the other in Virginia who's doing an internship at NATO for 6 months). I'm lucky enough to have been to NYC a number...

A pretty interesting article comparing Nintendo's recent fortunes to those of Walt Disney Animation Studios in the early 1980s.

If you like either of those things (whether recent or from the early 1980s), I suggest checking out [URL="http://gameological.com/2013/11/for-our-consideration-nintendo-could-learn-from-disney/"]this article[/URL].
