    King Kong
    Easy Rider
    Bedazzled
    Once Upon a Time in the West
    Zulu
    Midnight Cowboy
    The Red Shoes
    Good the Bad and the Ugly

    Raging Bull is not that old.

    I love Cyrano De Bergerac but it was actually late 80s?

    I think Cyrano is my fave.

    Midnight Cowboy is possibly the most depressing film I have ever seen.

    Does everything have to be nice to be great?

    It's a weepy but in a good way. It's great that Ratso makes it to Florida even if he dies cos he was sure as hell going to cark it in a freezing New York shithole and Joe defo made it out and he made it out because Ratso helped make it happen. It's a beautiful thing.

    I get quite angry when people say Oh The Smiths are depressing or Hamlet is shit cos everyone dies.

    It MAKES MY BLOOD BOIL

    I never said I didn't enjoy it. I think it's a great film. I said it was the most depressing film I had seen.

    You going to climb down off that high horse now? Wink

    Depressing films to me are ones that you can't even enjoy a good cry to or are way to close to your own life to be entertainment. Just bleak shit :

    Jacob's Ladder
    Eraserhead
    Requiem for a Dream
    Precious
    Artificial Intelligence (don't ask)
    Man Bites Dog
    SAW

    Requiem for a dream had no redeeming qualities. Porn for depressives.

    Jacobs Ladder I watched when I was young and probably didn't get it.

    All the SAW films are just pointless. They tried to give them a moral but it was just over the top shit.

    I liked AI.

    Not seen any of the others.

    I'll insert the twat caveat here :

    twat

    But I have a thing about Surrealism and have got quite into it.

    Surrealism has real joy involved. Even allegedly surreal films like le Chien Andelou (?spelling?) which are quite horrific in places are also irreverent and funny.

    Eraserhead doesn't do that for me at all. And I am a big Lynch fan.

    Surrealism is difficult as it's all about how far you're willing to let your imagination go. A dancing dog is surreal to some people. I struggle with it to be honest. I just get the feeling that sometimes it's just people 'trying' to be clever, but you don't know if they are or not as it might just be you who doesn't get it. So all in all it's a big joke aimed at me affraid

    Proper Surrealism is very interesting.

    Max Ernst is a good start.

    Let's just say it ended with Dali or indeed that Dali ended it.

    I think it's a really interesting bit of history. The world was very buttoned up when some people started being really extra weird.

    I'm sure there are good books on it. I don't know any soz.
