Michael, WOW I want to see that movie, going to have to search it out. It sounds like my kind of film, sounds very cronenberg.
Trevor, Svankmajer is a surrealist animator from Prague, made Faust and Alice. Uses puppets, clay, household objects, he is like a the David LYnch of animation. His best film was probably Faust or Dimesions of dialogue. Most of the other films I don't know. Boy I am starting to feel uneducated.
Oh If you are a tIm Burton fan get the Nightmare before Christmas speciald edition dvd. IT has two of tim burton's early films, Vincent (animated) and Frankenweenie (live action).
Anvrill, I can't wait to see One HR photo, Mall rats was a great movie. I look the smokie and the bandit line.
Chris, Labryinth and Heathers great movies, if you want to see David Bowie act, then watch "The man who fell to earth" it makes no sense and Bowie looks coked off his brain, throughout which makes it a classic.
Also if you liked Akira, see Ghost in the SHell. It is way better, in my mind.
Parasite, I think Bladerunner was mentioned. If not why not.
Anon, TRAINSPOTTING, forgot about that one.
Mikey, been ages since I saw the Goonies,was on tv a while ago.
Another one, Dark City. The matrix as an intelligent film noir. It predates the Martix, and even though the Martix is great, this has more substance. It is directed by the Alex Pyroas. Made the crow, it is amazing what he can do with a good script.
El riesgo vive siempre!
