    I liked Hit and Run, but I would hardly classify it as a quality film. Pretty flimsy story, but some sweet car action. The '67 Continental is bad-ass.

    That's not just my opinion on The Master, but the opinion of most prestigious film scholars that don't usually look twice at American films. It's something I'd like to write a paper on some day.

    You're referring to Magnolia, yes? I'd be interested to hear why it's your favorite. I just love all of PTA's films and can't wait to see what else he comes up with; he hasn't been making films all that long.

    I hate that it's so difficult to see good films as they come out. The Salt Lake Film Society does a good job of bringing in a variety of films to The Broadway in downtown SLC, but I don't ever remember Holy Motors being there. I'll definitely be jumping on the first chance I have to see it.

    I had the exact same reaction to the trailer. When it came out and was getting good reviews, my friend was like, "well, maybe we should give it a shot." We both hated it. It makes me cringe that so many American critics gave it positive feedback.

    Oh, and I believe you mentioned that you liked Seven Psychopaths? I can't remember the last time I laughed so hard in theaters. But I felt like it started to fall apart in the last 20 minutes, or so. Overall, I really enjoyed it, but probably not as much as In Bruges.

    I simply need to avoid Wes Anderson movies. Nothing he has ever done has been worth my time. Nothing.
    This is basically what everyone has told me based on watching Wes Anderson movies based on my very strong recommendation. To me it says more about them than it does about the absolute brilliance of Wes Anderson movies, sorry.

    Prometheus was good for me.

    Also Amour.
