Hooray for the Cat-bus!
According to Miyazaki this is derived from Japanese folk lore with a little twist.

I think you mean "The Machinist"?
Without the audio commentary on the DVD, I probably wouldn't have understood it either.

And after that he had to go into shape again for "Batman Begins" in a very short time. Can't be healthy.

Anyone seen "The Cube" ? a whole series of sequals that are all very similar but still manage to make you go "WTF??????" at the end

Cube was great. But I really lothed the follow ups. Spoilt the mystery for me.
I just saw "Pi".

What a great film.

Weird.

But great.

Gus Van Sant's Gerry is an exceptionally weird in the boring sense of the word film. 2 hours of nothing.

There is this film called "Blue". Almost two hours of different shades of blue with music (not blues, though).
A colleague had to endure it while still at school.

I have to say that Pink Floyd's The Wall is definitely the strangest thing I've ever watched. Incredibly intriguing, but very odd.

The other one that I've seen that's really odd is Trainspotting (or Trainspotters... I can't remember which.) I've only seen part of it, but it was really... out there...

Trainspotting.

Worth watching for Spud's interview failing technique alone.
I'll be humming "Perfect Day" for the rest of the week now :wink:

Is that based on the book 'The Life of Pi'?
