My first time writing her, these are ones I've watched over the last few months:

House of the Sleeping Beauties   1/5   similar story to the recent Sleeping Beauty...but nothing happens for 90 mins. 
Warriors of the Rainbow: Seediq Bale  3/5  Taiwanese story of local tribes fighting the Japanese during the war.  Entertainingly violent
Shanghai Triad  2/5 old Gong Li movie, not particularly exciting
Waltz with Bashir  4/5 stylised animated war film
Chungking Express 3/5 Wong Kar Wai's HK film
Sorcerer & the White Snake  1/5  rubbish Chinese fantasy.  Jet Li must have needed some cash
Un Prophete 3/5 French prison drama, hugely recommended but I struggled to get into it too much
The Lost Bladesman  3/5  Donnie Yen wields his sword
The Skin I Live In  4/5  Great film, although not always easy to watch
Up the Yangtze  4/5 Documentary about the 3 Gorges Dam in China & the effect it has on local life
Flashpoint  2/5  Donnie Yen HK police drama, nothing happens for ages then the last 15 mins is one long crazy fight scene

Confessions

A Japanese film about a teacher who, upon retiring, tells her class that the people responsible for her daughters death are some of the pupils.

Not a bad film, some lovely scenes and good use of colours but at times I felt I was watching a music video. And it was hard to feel any kind of emotion for any of the characters.

Sophie Scholl: The Final Days

Exactly what it says on the tin... the final days of the German student who was part of an anti-Nazi resistance group from just before her arrest for distributing leaflets in Munich University to her execution. Surprisingly effective considering it's limited to only a handful of sets and is mostly one-on-one conversations. The battle of wills between Sophie and her interrogator is brilliant.

The mother of all monsterfilms has a slow start. Therefor I didn`t really like the first part and it took a while for me to get into the film. The second part of the film on the other hand was really good. With, especially for that time, great (miniature) effects and a story that even has some drama in it and is a good complaint against atomic- and other weapons of mass destruction.
I am curious though how the Americanised version, wich is also featured on the Criterion blu-ray release, will work out.

8,0/10

Godard`s most recent film is no light stuff...It`s made up out of three parts and you don`t really have to search for a narrative. The best thing that you can do is just submit to it and enjoy the montage of perfectly fitting together combination of images of sound.
Will re-visit it for sure and then we`ll see if I really like it or not...

Le Cercle Rouge - A French crime noir from 1970 by Jean-Pierre Meville. Brilliant movie, and Melville is slowly becoming one of my favourite directors and I've only seen two films of his, the other being Le Samourai. This wasn't quite as good as that, but that's not a bad thing because that's a masterpiece and one of the best movies ever made. This wasn't quite that, but it was still amazing, and so much better than any crime/heist movie since imo. Every scene is just so stylish and incredibly cool, so are the performances. Alain Delon is one of the coolest motherfuckers I've ever seen. The film is stylish, but there's also a ton of substance to back it up with great themes running throughout. The best robbery/heist scene ever put on film imo, so tense and so intricately thought out it's amazing. You never see tension built so well anymore and it's quite sad watching this and realizing it. The last line of dialogue was such a perfect end, and I remember talking about the 'best last lines' or something on here, well, this is up there. Just brings the film to a great conclusion and sums it up perfectly. Brilliant. If you haven't seen the work of Jean-Pierre Meliville then I seriously recommend it to anyone who loves movies, and anyone who wants to see a true master at work.

La Ragazza Che Sapeva Troppo (The Girl Who Knew Too Much)
Lovely last film that Mario Bava shot in black and white about an American tourist who accidentally gets involved in what she believes is a serial killing.
The film is one big hommage to Hitchcock, is at times creepy and does have quite a bit of humour.
But above all this is just very entertaining.
Love it!

Watched two Jean-Luc Godard movies tonight for the first time. Breathless (1960), which was incredible and amazing and wonderful and magnificent and any other word with a similar meaning. A masterpiece, and it still remains so much better than anything to try and emulate it's style since. I also think I'm in love with Jean Seberg in this. The end gave me chills. Seriously thinking this has just gone straight into my personal top 5 films ever, it's that good. 10/10

The other was Band Of Outsiders (1964), which was great, but nowhere near the level of Breathless, and probably not as good as some of the Melville stuff I've seen. Still really good, and again the end was brilliant. 7/10

Fa yeung nin wa (In The Mood For Love)
Wong Kar-Wai`s international breakthrough finally really comes alive and is served right now that it has been released on blu-ray by Criterion.
The warm colours and atmosphere that they create is mouthwatering, as opposed to the kinda flat dvd. And the beautiful soundtrack blows, in a positive way, out the speakers.

The film itself is still one of the best Asian films from the past decades, with a beautiful cinematography and excellent lead parts brought accordingly to the screen by Maggie Cheung and Tony Leung who are two neighbours who slowly but surely realise that both their spouses (who, by the way, are never fully shown in the film) are getting it on with each other.
Seeking comfort and solace with one another when trying to get through this, they keep dancing around each other the whole movie long even though it`s pretty clear that they`re meant to be together.
With fhe combination of the abovementioned factors Wong brings a brilliant feeling to live of an impossible love and humanity and how these two tormented "lovers" deal with it.

9,0/10

Gozu (Takashi Miike, 2003) - Spoilers

I've recently been moving my DVDs and Blu Rays around a lot and have also begun to rip them so I put them on the network and stream them around the house. However, as I'm going through them I'm finding hidden gems that I keep meaning to watch again, with Miike's Gozu being one of them.

I've seen Gozu once before (during the period when Miike was riding the 'Asian Extreme' wave) and remember at the time thinking it was a) funny in places, b) outrageous in its attempts to shock and c) way too long.

On revisiting I found it to be these again, but I didn't remember just how funny the funny bits were. There's a couple of genuine laugh-out-loud moments (the point at which Minami stops the car suddenly and kills Brother being the highlight). It is still way too long. At 130 minutes it is occasionally a chore to sit through, with some scenes dragging on and in particular the middle third being the low point. That said, the build up towards the end is excellent, as the increasingly weird goings on come to a climax in what has to be one of the most spectacularly deranged sequences going (the birth of a full grown man, preceded by the hilarious attempt to escape from the vaginal-clutches of the woman).

I'd also not remembered some of the rather lovely cinematography and the creepy score, topped off by the French-esque 'Gozu' theme at the end.

One of Miike's more underrated features, I think, but it does have some flab around the middle.

Pierrot Le Fou (Godard, 1965)
I recently watched Breathless for the first time and I instantly adored it, but this was even better. The film doesn't have a traditional narrative driven story, but at the same time it's a very simple story with a lot of extra greatness thrown in. It felt like Godard was playing around here just for fun in some scenes, and it's all the better for it. The use of pop culture was brilliantly done, and the recklessness of young people in love was amazingly portrayed. The editing was amazing, I've never seen anything quite like it before. I also thought the way the film was a statement on cinema as a whole was really interesting, it could have easily come off as pretentious, but it didn't at all. The characters would break the fourth wall (just like in Breathless), and it didn't seem forced or in any way like it was trying too hard to mess around with the fundamentals of cinema to garner a reaction. That's not to say it doesn't get a reaction, because it does, but it fits in with the film so well that it almost feels normal. The use of colour and lighting to highlight different settings and moods was brilliant and visually amazing, and the narration was almost haunting in it's delivery in some scenes, especially the final lines. To put it simply, this is a piece of art, and a masterclass in film making from Godard. It's not for everyone by any means, but if you're looking for something with more to it than a simple narrative, I'm pretty sure it won't get much better than this. Incredible film. 9.5/10

Only reason I'm not giving it a 10 is because I think I could watch it again and get even more from it.

Perfect Blue (1997, Kon, 1st viewing) (Japan)
Disturbing and hallucinatory anime film. Perfect Blue blurs the line of reality and fantasy frequently; while a former pop idol, in the midst of a career change to an actress deals with all sorts of messed up problems including an obsessed fan who pre-dates Eminem's Stan by a couple of years. One of the best non-Ghibli anime films I've seen in a fair while.

Melville is definitely one of my favourite directors. I agree that Le Samourai is his masterpiece, but both Le Cercle Rouge and Le Doulos (with a stunning central performance by Jean-Paul Belmondo) are close behind. In fact, if I were to come up with a top five gangster films, all three would probably be in it.
The robbery sequence in Le Cercle Rouge is certainly one of the best ever, but I'd put it on a par with Rififi, rather than ahead of it (if you haven't seen Rififi, I would strongly recommend you to).
As for Alain Delon, he's one of the great icons of French Cinema, and I have to say one of my favourite actors (he was also Melville's favourite actor). One of his earliest performances, and I think still one of his best, was in Plein Soleil, which is based on The Talented Mr Ripley and is, in my opinion, superior in every respect to Minghella's version. Delon's performance as Tom Ripley is chilling. Also well worth getting hold of are Borsalino, in which he co-stars with Jean-Paul Belmondo, and The Sicilian Clan, with the great Jean Gabin. He also turned in two exceptionally fine performances in Luchino Visconti's The Leopard and Rocco And His Brothers.

Vivre Sa Vie (1962, Godard, 1st viewing)

That's two French films I've seen so far about prostitutes this year alone.

Vivre Sa Vie < Belle Du Jour

However

Anna Karina > Catherine Deneuve

Anyway, back on topic (I guess), Vivre Sa Vie was interesting enough and Karina is a joy to watch; her little dance sequence made me fall her a little bit more (which I didn't think was possible). That's the thing though, I loved Anna in this, but she's easily the only reason I'd rewatch the film for. Unlike the two other Godard's I've seen, bout de souffle and Pierrot le Fou, I wouldn't happily watch Vivre Sa Ve again for any reason other then a great central performance. I'm saying it's bad, I did like it but yeah...

Vivre Sa Vie (My Life To Live) (Godard, 1962)
I just watched that last night too . I thought it was absolutely brilliant though. Like you said, Karina was superb in it, but that's secondary to how layered the film actually was. It was such a simple story, but also one of the more complex films I've seen. Every piece of dialogue means something, and is a hint at what's to come, and everything Nana did in the movie was a step closer to her demise at the end. I just loved how every reading in the film, whether it was the description of the bird from the little girl at the start, or the reading in the hotel room near the end about the artist and his painting as well as the philosopher telling her the story of the Three Musketeers was a metaphor of Nana herself. The part when she was watching the Joan Of Arc film in the cinema was immensely powerful I thought, especially how Godard was likening Nana to Joan, and therefor blatantly signifying her death was inevitable. Everything led up to her death, and every piece of dialogue or text that was read came full circle in the very last scene. I also read afterwards that the film was Godard depicting his relationship with Karina, which I had no idea of when watching it, but it completely makes sense, especially the part with the wife dying as the final strokes are put to her picture from Poe that is read out near the end, it obviously signified Godard putting an end to Nana once he'd brought the character full circle. I agree with you in that I prefer both Breathless and Pierrot Le Fou though, but this definitely deserves a re-watch to fully grasp how complex it actually was and take in everything, it strikes me as something that will reveal more and more on re-watches. I loved it, and I'm finding Godard to be one of the most complex and completely brilliant directors ever. 8.5/10

Are you also working your way through Godard's work like me And I agree with essentially everything you said above, and great review by the way, makes mine look like crap in comparison but great nonetheless! And now that you mention it, a rewatch is probably needed because I'm starting to think there is a lot of themes and little nuances I didn't pick up on or I didn't think too much into.

I am indeed lol. I've only seen four of his films so far, but I'm becoming a huge fan of his work, almost to the point I'd call him one of my top 3 directors, but I feel like I should see a lot more of his before I can fully say that. Each one I've seen I want to own on DVD, because they're the type of films and Godard is the type of film maker that you just know there's more to pick up on with repeat viewings. After Pierrot Le Fou finished I immediately wanted to watch it again lol, that instantly became one of my favourite films ever, and I've read quite a few times that it gets better the second time too.

What four have you seen? And I think he may be creeping into my Top 15 favourite Directors but I may give it some time before I openly declare it I'm trying to make my way through a lot of iconic foreign directors at the moment, Bergman, Godard, Kurosawa Bunuel and Tarkovsky. And oh I loved Pierrot Le Fou, I'm making up a Top 100 films list and it's currently sitting at like #88 I think? A rewatch might even sweeten the deal.

I've seen Pierrot Le Fou, Breathless, Vivre Sa Vie and Band Of Outsiders. I'd rank them in that order too. I'm also looking to start watching Tarkovsky, never seen any of his work. Mirror sounds really interesting, as does Stalker.

I've never tried making a list like that, it's hard for me to put stuff in order lol. If I did though I'd imagine Pierrot Le Fou and Breathless would land somewhere in my top 10, I loved them that much. Vivre Sa Vie feels like it would be top 20 material too. Le Samourai would also be very very high on my list I think.
