I've got six to go, though two of them are sitting in my house to be watched and the rest are on priority. I blame Eureka. After it took 6 days to watch it, I was so physically and emotionally drained that I spent subsequent evenings watching Rob Schneider films and forcing metal rods into my ears any time any one mentioned the terms Hall or Fame.

I refuse to let anyone blame me for taking a Rob Schneider fix. That's the kind of lack of responsibility that's ruining young whippersnappers of today. Own your own jones, is, I believe, the down with it parlance.

I did, very interesting and a great visual film. Just finished Punishment Park too, which I also really enjoyed. It's been a tough call separating some of the films in this round, haven't made my mind up about some and/or might change my mind about others if they grow on me.

Watched Whisper of the Heart yesterday (which I really enjoyed - it's lovely), but I've been singing Country Roads non-stop.

Finally saw a couple more HoF contenders

The Hour-Glass Sanitorium
It's just my thing as it's Surreality+70's+Mild Nudity+European= Happy Hubu. I thought it flowed perfectly, just like a dream in which we travel along and enter situations, conversations and environments with a seemingly matter-of-fact 'just another day' normality. The art direction was sublime and those sets had a inventive decayed lushness that i just cannot get enough of. I could see that there was a few metaphors slithering about (like like an Alejandro Jodorowsky film) and i'm going to enjoy re-watching (and getting hold of the original book) again to solidify my understanding on certain aspects. A fully enjoyable piece of surreal cinema

Punishment Park
I just loved the approach and was laid out and acted very well. The most striking aspect of the film is that it's comments, contradictions and expose on governments and the struggle between them it's people,and vice versa, are not only still very much alive but also haven't really changed in topic or tone. Some great acting, dialogue from both sides of the fence made for a pretty gripping, and emotional watch even though it burned out a wee bit near the end. A very enjoyable film and one i've recommended to a few friends. On a last note as with most films in this style, the news or documentary team become less impartial near the end and start to involve themselves BUT if he shouted at me to stop in that voice i would of shot him for the badness

Completely agree with this - I thought it was fantastic. The sets were stunning; - it was so theatrical (filming it must have been incredible). The changes between setting were done wonderfully - its the closest to capturing a dream/nightmare that I've seen in film.

Though the manniquins really freaked me out. Especially with the mangled face.

Guys, I might need to ask for an extension, my laptop dying for a few weeks meant that I couldn't see the films nommed on the list for some time, including the Japanese behemoth.

I have five left and I will watch The Fallen Idol tonight.

I should get my final three watched by next week if LoveFilm hurries up.

My least favourite so far was The Butcher Boy. It had great opening credits (Santo and Johnny are fab), and some great performances, but for some reason it didn't grab me like the others I've watched did.

Finally saw The Butcher Boy

At first I was a bit put off by the seemingly schmaltzy Irish acting and story, but within the context of the full film; it does add to the abiguity of the the main character and his concept of reality, but I won't give any more than that away for those who haven't seen it yet. It was an enjoyable film, and by that i mean that it was easy to enjoy its charisma and playful style, even though not far beneath the shallow glow of the main characters situational shenanigans, it had a dark, ever thickening fog of misery, madness, ignorance and a looming sense of a journey that, no matter how painful, disgusting and frightening, could never be altered.

All in all I really enjoyed the show, and I found it's portrayal of the main issue not only sensitive, understanding and humane, but also strangely optimistic. As a last note the main character was perfectly cast as he had the face of a wee gob shite.

His & Hers. Not sure what to think of this. It starts off badly. Babies and toddlers and kids and teenagers (Agh. That girl and her unknown text!) and then becomes a stream of cheerful anecdotes (I don't like such ramblings from friends, I certainly don't like it from strangers) and then turns into a kind of Loose Women "My man's an idiot" scenario before, eventually, it all becomes quite engaging and emotional. But the whole thing is really quite charming. The twinkly music and the static camera during the interviews and the shots of people getting on with their daily routine and such, it's got a great big cup of cocoa with marshmallows cosiness to it.

I didn't give it an overwhelming appreciative write up, but it had it's glowing moments.They are my sentiments as well, but i'm taking you as to back up my thoughts, that it would of been a good tv documentary, but nothing would change my opinions of the style. It would, weirdly enough, been more suited for that format

The Fallen Idol: Very impressed with this, some lovely direction and a great script (the way the dialogue moves quickly from person to person in the closing 10-15 minutes, in a round robin of confusion, contradiction and revelation, is excellent), but more importantly two great performances doing the film justice, one of them shockingly from a child.

Just finised Eureka. It was beautifully shot - some of it was lovely to look at. But I'm afraid I found it desperately dull.


(which basically sums up most of the criticism that my nom gets too).
