Waiting For The Barbarians.

The administrator for a colonial empire's frontier outpost realizes colonialism in itself is disruptive to the peace, and will ultimately destroy itself. When he tries to make a difference and helps local people, he faces the cruel wrath of the soldiers of the empire.
Very slow, but worth it.

What's your verdict?


I posted in another thread that I downloaded it as a comedy , I only found 3 things funny ( that I remember ). I'd score it a 7/10 , I've watched some real s**t this year so it made a nice change. Washington gave a solid performance ( can't wait for Tenet ) and it's the best thing I've seen Driver in since The Report.


Isn't everything in the movie true? except of course the lead female character might not have been a supermodel in real life

I've been watching a movie pretty much every night (it's my main interest right now), so I'll just give a few of my many, many favorites:

Requiem for a Dream
Her
House of Sand and Fog
Thirteen
Joker
Down in the Valley
Mr. Nobody
American Beauty
The Way Back
Mother!
The Wrestler
Enter the Void
American Honey
Lilya 4-Ever
Climax
Whiplash
Shame
Dancer in the Dark
The Woodsman
Melancholia

Sorry that's a lot, I have a million more too all ranked in a list of movies I've seen since college started. I'm up to 226 movies and 70 this summer!

Sounds interesting.

You have very good taste in film. The ones that I kept from your list are the only ones I have watched myself.

What are your opinions?

I liked it.

A Candle For The Devil

A Spanish-made film from 1971, which goes under various other titles and appears in a number of versions, often shorter than this one (which is 83 minutes). Two sisters run a guest house (imaginatively named Las Dos Hermanas), where they kill a series of young women, for their apparently loose morals. You can read all sorts of psychological, psychosexual and even political subtexts into this, if you want (some have even detected a critique of General Franco's Spain).

Anyway, our heroine Judy Geeson (who appeared in a lot of films of this period) gets on the case and manages to put a stop to the exploits of the gruesome twosome. But does she live to tell the tale? The ending is rather abrupt, and doesn't make this clear.

Land of Mine

A Danish war film, or should I say, post-war, as it deals with young captured Nazis who are forced to clear landmines from the beaches of western Denmark. It's fairly brutal, psychologically and physically, at times and will remind you of The Bridge on the River Kwai, To End All Wars, Break To Freedom and similar Prisoner Of War films.

The Beguiled (remake). I liked it, but I wonder if the original with Clint Eastwood was better?
