    Other movies I wanna re-watch are Paint your Wagon, Papillon, Seven brides for seven brothers, one flew over the cuckoos nest, soldier blue and Stir Crazy come to mind at the moment, oh and Airplane.
    Another vote for Papillion.
    But read the book, translated into English from slang French so you have to read it slowly if that makes sense?

    Walkabout - 1971

    Nicholas Roeg's signature lyrical cinematography illuminate this unique essay contrasting Australia's two civilisations.

    Haunting is probably an overused word when describing Walkabout but it is the perfect word. The scenes linger delicately on hypnotising details.

    Watching it is more like listening to a poem than reading a novel.

    Jenny Agutter is perfectly cast as the sexually pulsating schoolgirl lost with her brother in the outback and guided to safety by a 16 year old David Gullpilil (credited as David Gumpillil).

    Don't worry when you get a boner (and you will) when she is looking sultry in various states of undress and swimming naked in the billabong as she was actually 17 when it was shot.

    Curiously the film could have come close to being banned in the UK recently in 2011 when it was up for reclassification because the age limit for sexual portrayal of actresses was raised from 16 to 18 in 2003. The film censors decided to give it a pass on artistic merit.

    If it had not passed then it would have become a crime to simply possess a copy, even one obtained before the age rule change.

    If you have not seen this movie then you must watch it.

    If you have not seen it for a while then you must watch it again.

    The French Connection is a great thriller, but outclassed by The Day of the Jackal or Leon, The Professional IMO.

    Last Tango in Paris

    Finally got around to watching this.

    What a pile of garbage. What were the critics gushing about? It is self-indulgent turgid guff.

    The young actress with the huge norks and the classic 70's grizzly bear growler, who gets her back doors famously smashed in with butter, is a worthy distraction from the insipid script.

    The highlight of the movie is that grizzly bear growler woman shoots Brando's wallowing artless buffoon of a character at the end.

    Sorry for the spoiler but there is really no plot to speak of.

    3/10 (for the time-machine pussy bear)

    I can understand it would be pretty flat watching it as a download.

    I've definitely no desire to watch it again after seeing it when it was revived in the eighties.

    I think there is a certain sexual tension that made it work on the big screen, though.

    Another film from the same era that would have you scratching your head would probably be 'Ai No Korida'.

    There's just an element of drama in it that builds slowly.

    As the more learned critics and historians of cinematography have pointed out, the sight of beaver was also more of a rarity in those days.

    Bad Day at Black Rock
    1953 - Spencer Tracey - army vet goes to a small town digging dirt about Jap internment during the war. Probably controversial in its day.

    She is (and still is) rather lovely, isn't she?

    "Logan's Run" features a lot of her too.

    'Seven Samurai', 'Dersu Uzala', 'Yojimbo' , 'Ran'...classic films all directed by Akira Kurosawa.

    'Breaker Morant'...puts a believable face on a true story. Unforgettable.

    'Das Boat'...brings to life the day-to-day of a German U-boat at war in the Atlantic with JŁergen Prochnow as the fearless Captain trying to get on with his job while maintaining the semblance of duty to the German war effort while maintaining comraderie among his crew. This is one of the films where you might find yourself aligning with the German crew and its Captain.

    'Once Were Warriors'...searing Kiwi dysfuctional family. So sad that 'good old boy' Jake the Muss's terrifying rage is painfully wrenching to everyone close around him resulting in Jake finally breaking his own whānau. A shocking and disturbing story not confined to New Zealand.

    'Yellow Submarine'...if you have pharma-quality LSD and enjoy tripping a hallucinogenic landscape for 90 minutes (or you can watch it twice..."and sing along".)

    Dersu Usala was not so well made, but still a great film....very moving.

    After seeing it on TV, I bought a copy of it as torrents had ones with poor subtitles.
