    Watched yesterday - Dreams of a Life. Don't let the subject matter put you off. A very touching story.

    Great choice! I'd advise people not to read too much about it before seeing it. [No spoilers here] It's about a woman, Joyce Vincent, who lay dead in her north London flat for almost three years before being discovered. You've probably read news articles about similar stories, evoking images of an isolated loner, possibly elderly, existing on the margins of society. Except in this case, none of the usual stereotypes seemed to apply - for a start she was just 38 years old - and was possibly even wrapping Christmas presents at the time of her death. The film sets out to answer the questions: Who was Joyce Vincent? And what happened to her? If anyone had written her story as fiction, it wouldn't be believed.

    Sounds intriguing.

    I'm going to watch this

    Movies I like to listen to:

    "Mothman Prophecies" - Mothman telephone/tape recorder voices. I love this really spooky mechanical
    repeating phrase "Great tragedy on the River Ohio..."

    "Tron" (1982) - various vehicles in action, their movements and impacts. My favourite: sequence of sounds just before Flynn crashes hijacked recognizer. Recognizer has few impacts with various constructions - sounds designed for this sequence are beatiful.

    "The Return" (2006, http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0433442/) - voice and ambience effects in visions and retrospections.

    "Fallen Art" (animation) - sounds of starting moving pictures projection machine.
    Yes, I like this movie mostly because of its sound effects...

    "Session 9" (2001, http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0261983/) - spooky psychiatric sessions recordings found in abandoned asylum. Lonnie Farmer did great voice work.

    "Valhalla Rising" (2009) - many atmospheric sound effects and interesting processing of some of dialogues.

    Nice to see this thread going strong.

    I was going to mention this one a while back. I haven't seen it, but it's obviously interesting to Freesounders - Berberian Sound Studio - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1833844/

    Judging by the small showing on metacritic I think the release must have been quite limited. Interestingly Mark Kermode chose it as his joint best film of 2012 (along with A Royal Affair). Anyone seen it?

    For those who don't know, Mark Kermode is a high profile British film critic - always happy to depart from the critical mainstream; provocative and thought provoking but occasionally tiresome. He's noted for his 'Kermodian rants'. For a classic rant see his review of Sex and the City 2 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uHeQeHstrsc - which is probably vastly more entertaining than the actual film...

    Actually i thought of "dead man" yesterday. I love the way Neil Young made a soundtrack for this film. Very dark and intuitive in some way. I'd recommend it to anybody smile

    Hey Kyster, I like Jarmusch films, but I haven't seen that one for some reason. Thanks.

    I haven't seen it - it looks like one of those "shock for the sake of it" flicks.

    I'll give Kevin Smith a mention - a hero of mine especially because I admire the way he made his first film - he basically sold everything he owned and maxed out 5 credit cards to shoot a feature on 16mm (this was before digital) by roping in all of his friends, family and anyone else he could find. Even his mum was in it - how cool is that? After screening it at festivals he eventually sold it to Miramax. Apparently he's just started writing Clerks III.

    My favourite is Chasing Amy - watched it again a few weeks back - yes, it's a bit crude and vulgar. But it's also honest and very funny.

    There! I'm not just arthouse! [I would have done a smiley there but I have technical limitations...]

    Yeah, I know what you mean and you're probably right, but I enjoyed it. Maybe I had too much beer at the time of watching smile The director explains on some Youtube vid, but I've forgotten what he said smile

    I watched Kevin Smith: Burn in Hell which I really enjoyed, but couldn't get into Clerks at all. Preferred Red State and Dogma.

    Here's a more mainstream film I enjoyed much very recently Let it Ride http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0097731/ hadn't seen it before.

    I really have to post this. The most powerful and deeply moving film I've seen in quite some time. I would give it ten stars.

    Thought of this one last night and it always makes me laugh. A perversely funny black comedy, but that depends on your sense of humour. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0129332/

    I really like the movies by Geroge Lucuas and Steven Spielberg for example Star Wars, Indian Jones, War Horse and Red Tails. If you never seen them trust me they are a must see.
