As if I hadn't done enough damage with my purchasing power this weekend - popped into Virgin's DVD sale on my way back, and my collection now contains:|
- The Craft
- The Crow
- Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon
- Dark Star
- Interview with the Vampire
- Kentucky Fried Movie
- Mars Attacks
- Silent Running
My childish side says Labyrinth :) it has the thin white duke in it :) Cat's and dogs is a bit biased towards the wrong side for you I think...
Serious side says La Haine, or Boys Don't Cry.
I'm not funny or romantic - I'll leave those to someone else :) Do try to locate Ordinary Decent Criminal at some point though - It's wonderful.
*squishes the errant apostrophe bug and goes back to pedant school*
La Haine is a fine, if depressing, film; I remember first watching it when in secondary school doing a topic in French class on childhood and adolescence. Gritty realism.
I'd give honourable mention to another French film, City of Lost Children, too. Magic realism. Or surrealism, depending how you want to look at it.
