I remember seeing The Quiet Earth way back when. Great movie.Dave C wrote:btw, I watched & really liked The Quiet Earth. Turns out it's written by a guy named Craig Harrison from New Zealand. It's long out of print & had a very short run to begin with so I couldn't find it anywhere. Then I stumbled across a thread on a movie site where some guy in NZ has the book & is willing to ship it to interested readers. So it's on the way to me & then I'll be getting an address of the next reader. I doubt the book will live up to the hype I've attributed to it but it should be a fun read.
Rent it again, Martin.
Similarly, I loved Bergman's The Magic Flute and also a French film, The King of Hearts. But watch them twenty years later and you really wonder what the attraction was. They all have their charms, but meh...
Phantom of Paradise was more like Rocky Horror (I can't make it through either film) in that it was trying to be campy.
You Winterpeggers just need to sit tight for the next Guy Maddin festival. Tales from Gimley Hospital - now there's a completely strange film.

Apocalypse Now Redux is very worth while for the patient film buff on its own, but the commentary adds another dimension.
been watching The Young Ones on DVD the last few evenings, and there is a "subliminal" skier, frog and dove so far
i think this is the one with the subliminal skier in.
