I knew Davey was a Malick fan with votes also from driftin (1) and joels344 with a whopping (8).


It actually missed the list altogether last time, but I would agree. It's my favorite from Malick so far.

A Hard Days' Night? For fuck's sake, get a fucking life.
Like fast-moving clouds casting shadows against a hillside, the melody-loop shuddered with a sense of the sublime, the awful unknowable majesty of the world.

It's a real time capsule movie, capturing the innocence and optimism of the early 60s in wonderful black and white.

It's great.

Absolutely, there's just so much energy- from the French New Wave influenced jump-cutting to the self-effacing and surprisingly sharp performances and script, and finally, the utterly joyous soundtrack (it is the Bloody Beatles after all) that make it all of a piece. It's a film packed with great "moments" right from the opening credits.
It's before my time but I've been told, he never came back from Karangahape Road.

If you can remember the 90s you weren't there man

But thinking about it I don't think I even had access to a VHS until about 1989 so that makes sense. In fact I can remember watching it in the flat I moved into in 1992 and so that makes even more sense
And sometimes I ride on bus x82, say what!

I don't hate it. De gustabus and all that...it's a perfectly fine little Beatlesmania spoof with homage to the Running, Jumping, and Standing Still film and without it we probably wouldn't have had the Monkees, which I did enjoy as a kid, so there's that. If you're a Beatles fan, I'm sure it's meaningful or has some significance to you, but I don't have any reverence for the Beatles or the film. And as I didn't exist in that era, naturally I don't have any sense of nostalgia for that age. To me it's just fluff, but to each their own. I'm certain there will be films that are far more dubious on this list.

New batch up! With these we complete the first quarter of the list. I have yet to score a single one. Image Image Image But I like this batch. Persona was close to making my list, probably my favorite of the lot so far.

Well, lucky we've got you D_F; i'm sure you didn't pick any dusty old film crap from the '60s or before, right?

Yeah I get that. If that period and their music means little to you then it probably does seem like fluff but for those who grew up then and for those, like me, who weren't around but see that period as a peak in popular culture it represents something greater and more significant than just fluff. Plus it's funny and full of charm and it looks gorgeous. I think it's not just for Beatle nuts, you know?

That's right. It meant a lot to me and still does; watching the opening few minutes for examples still gives me a thrill the way it did when i was a kid, while i also get a lot more as an adult from it too.
