Watched Alma this morning and thought it was really, really good. The music is absolutely wonderful and it's really creepy - great choice.

Hurrah! And good timing. If anyone doesn't want to use youtube Six-Shooter is on Film 4 over the Xmas season - very early on the morning of Wed 28th at 3.10am.



Just a quick bump for this as a reminder for tomorrow night - In Bruges is on as well tomorrow, I think. But middle of the night - free to air - Six Shooter.

Watched a few last night

Alma - Nice wee sinister short, thought it looked great

Klaus - As funny as I remember it, great music

Blitz Wolf - Seen it before, still very funny

Tales from the Suburbs - Interesting wee show, liked how it inverted a seemingly international problem (military presence akin to somewhere in the Middle East or even Belfast a few decades ago) to America.

For the Birds - Jolly and classic.

Duck Dodgers - Daffy and Marvin are always a favourite. Has anyone ever explained why he's dressed like a centurion and wearing trainers? Always amuses me.

Watched Menilmontant and thought it was rather boring. It starts so well too, which left me pretty disappointed. That opening scene is brilliant.

Klaus reminded me a little of the scary safety films over here, but not quite as good and just a bit lackadaisacal about it? Laid back doesn't seem quite the right term. Funniest thing about it was a youtube comment underneath saying they were actually shown this as a safety film during forklift training!

Malice in Wonderland did nothing for me I'm afraid

Alma - still feels very inconsquential and stiffs on any air of menace - like that Dr Who where they seemed to feel that the very presence of dolls was enough, but it wasn't. It is quite beautiful though.

For the Birds - masterpiece of short form. Those little buggers deserve all they get and that moment of realisation is simply sublime. The bird style seems to have been borrowed for this

Just watched FLDK:TFDotJ. It surpassed my low expectations. I mean, who thinks a forklift safety instructional video spoof would be so dadgum funny?

Alma - This made me sad. But it's very well done. It probably won't crack my top 6 though. It's a pretty strong round.

Malice in Wonderland - Animated psychedelic porno at it's best. (Not a compliment, I was being snide.)

There isn't any bucking in it, so I think porn is a bit of an overstatement.

Menilmontant - I liked a lot but not the music. The baby did some grand acting too, didn't it? 

Only a couple to go and I'll send in my votes - sadly one is the one I keep putting off as I really don't like it, even apart from the eye.

Finished. Should get the votes sent at some point in the next day or two.

Night and Fog - I realised about 10mins into this that I'd watched it in school. It's powerful stuff.

Menilmontant - It must have sucked to br a woman 80 odd years ago - be seduced/coerced into dropping your knickers and be rewarded with a bun in the oven on your first outing, like some sort of Catherine Cookson wet dream. Simply fantastic central performance though.

Forklift Driver Klaus - very, very funny and really enjoyed it.

Malice in Wonderland - better than the Tim Burton one for starters. It's mental, but meh at the same time (I could describe that better).

Not just for the sake of the bump, but will this just be a 2 rounder again?
