He is one of the more recognised author of TV series in Spain, but he made some good films too, mixing comedy and drama.
I remember seeing La Cabina as a kid - it put me off using phone boxes

The second grade confirmed there were other people. He served 9 years but ony recently after 30 years in 2005 he said he didn't kill him and there were other people linked to the extreme right-wing political scene at the time, the people mentioned were dead by then.
Further evidences have linked Pasolini's death to political figures, in particular an important business man linked to a masonic lodge and the tell goes on and on.
To date it's still unkown who were Pasolini's murderers.
Oh right, it sounds pretty complex. On various message boards people seem to have passionate opinions on the guy. As I said, I don't know much about this guy, so I'm not sure whether it's about his films or for political reasons. Contextually, people seem to either side with him on both fronts or despise him.

All I know is...I don't like Salo

My favorite thrillers are from the seventies; that decade did paranoia really well. Some that I'd recommend: The French Connection, Marathon Man, All the President's Men and The Day of the Jackal. As for 'realization moment' films, The Usual Suspects is famous for its reveal (has some great performances too). The Sixth Sense also, although it's not really a thriller. More of a low-key horror/drama.
I really like Arlington Road, it's easy to follow, not too complex but still tense and therefore fast paced. Good shit.

I've heard a lot about The French Connection (I've just looked it up again and it's rated X, wasn't aware of that) and Marathon Man. Never bothered to watch them, as I said, I normally watch films at night when I am quite tired and these seem like the type you need to follow properly. I'll have all of these films watched by the end of the year. I am going to have Deliverance watched tonight.

I like both The Sixth Sense and The Usual Suspects. Great ending in the latter. My favourite character was Kobayashi. Pretty eerie sort of guy.

That's Pete Postlethwaite, very solid character actor. I've liked him in everything I've seen him in.

Died in 2011 unfortunately. You're right, a good character actor.

Really? That's too bad. I'm looking over his IMDB bio/trivia and it seems like in addition to being a fine actor he was also a decent guy off the screen.

"My first agent wanted me to change [my name]. So I changed him instead. When I made a breakthrough as an actor, people started to say, 'Who's that bloke with the funny name?' They advised me to change it, saying it would never be put up in lights outside theaters because they couldn't afford the electricity. But I would never contemplate changing it. It's who I am. It's my mother and father, my whole family. It's where everything I am comes from. I couldn't imagine living my life with another name."



Quite an interesting read, that section.

Off to watch Deliverance now. Hopefully full of Burt kicking some serious hide.

Re: The best non-English language films.

This thread does need more Tati.

Tomic [tom-ic] [tom-ic-ing]
verb
1. apply yourself for a small period of time before giving up. (I am tomicing this match).
noun
2. play exceedingly well for a month and then give fallacious promises to the world. (He performed a Tomic)

Which of his do you recommend to watch first? Playtime is the only one I've heard of, but what I have heard has been very complimentary.

Re: The best non-English language films.

Deliverance was fun. My favourite part of the film...



The **** scene was both a little disturbing but more funny than anything else. Trust big Burt Reynolds to save their skin

among the most important figures of italian history of the last century, probably the most important yet the least studied/taught

this scene has been quoted so many times in other movies/animated sitcomes/series.
I think the last time I saw a caricature of it in the Modern Family comedy series, don't know if you ever saw it. it's a funny one.

Monsieur Hulot's Holiday or Mon Oncle are the two I'd recommend first. Playtime is probably his most inaccessible film.

I've never heard of 'Modern Family'. But I can imagine this being in quite a few things. I could tell it was quite iconic before I had even googled it.
The Arjen Robben lookalike definitely delivers on that Banjo. I looked it up and turns out he wasn't even playing it, some guy reached around his body and was playing it for him.
