Most recent film you've watched
Just post the most recent film you've watched, along with what you thought after watching (if you want to).

I watched Harakiri (1962) about 3 nights ago. Beautiful film, but I didn't really get the meaning of it until the last ~10 minutes.

RE: Most recent film you've watched
Recently rewatched Lee Kang-sheng's The Missing.
I like how it had a Tsai Ming-liang influence but it still felt like his own film if you know what I mean.
An experience of human loss that touched my heart.

RE: Most recent film you've watched
Watched a bunch of directors and films recently, but most particularly Joyce Wieland and Walter Ungerer. Walter's early films (60s and 70s) were pretty good, but afterwards, it seems vapid for the most part.
I like Joyce Wieland's style. I haven't finished watching her stuff, but as the later it gets, the better and more interesting it gets.

Walter's "The Terrible Mother (1972)" is something I think about time to time. Loved the beginning of it, which appeared to me that all the characters were meeting up in one room - the room where most of the film takes place. After everyone comes, they start storytelling and eat together. If you like storytelling, this might be the film for you. I especially like the first story (which is a dream).

My current favorite for Joyce is "Barbara's Blindness (1965)." It appears the film contrasts between joy, happiness, beauty, to it's opposite and quite anything but.

RE: Most recent film you've watched
I watched Ten by Abbas Kiarostami.

I honestly could relate to it very well. My parents were divorced, and I felt like I was the child in the film. It really shows how much a mother and child can drift apart after something like a divorce. At the same time, it gave me a new perspective on what a mother goes through. I might go ahead and re-watch it just to see if I missed out on anything. But overall, I think I'll be watching more films by Kiarostami.

Hopefully, I'll be able to understand some Persian after this :p

Through the Olive Trees is as beautful as the name implies Smile
