    I love them both. It was my favourite film of last year, give or take Carol. If it ever gets properly released in the UK, I'm definitely seeing it again.

    I finally saw a Hong Sang-soo film, and it was amazing! If you see this and Right Now, Wrong Then makes its way to you, check it out!

    I finally got around to watching Jauja. So pretty! Soooooooo pretty. But up until the end, I found it such a slog to watch. What did it do for you to rate it it so highly? I'm genuinely curious.

    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!
