Had to look into Walkabout, as I saw it decades ago and still find Aboriginal spirituality very intriguing ....Roeg has made some damn fine films and I may catch it again,

I just now watched "Troll Hunter" a quite funny fake doc , in the mode of Blair Witch...... but the Norwegian humor is priceless ...it's billed as horror, yet the trolls look straight out of Sesame Street ..... and overall it's delightfully subtle and dryly funny...... I'm no fan of scary movies, and this is a parody of the genre, rather than a true horror film.
Love the play on Norwegian myths-legends and the subtle humor throughout.

Another similar one is
"Rare Exports" a Finnish film about digging up a buried monster Santa, frozen in a block of ice...... Another wacked fake documentary that defies
description.... Again delightful humor, considerably darker than Troll Hunter, yet the humor is sprinkled throughout and
while at times almost grim, is a twisted fantasy that Hollywood would never attempt.

I remember watching walkabout years ago, a very good film.

The last one I watched was Sliding Doors a couple of nights ago. A romantic comedy which touches on fate.

Currently watching The Sweetest Thing, it's actually quite funny.

My last movie...

I watch very few movies but my favourite is"Das Boot" (The Boat)....the story of a German U Boat's operation trip against allied shipping in WW11...

I know war is dreadful and one of our greatest sins....but that film really gets me...and the sad ending where the whole crew die in an air raid after getting home safely....and the boat is sunk.

The captain was a likeable chap...he was not a Nazi...and he loved to play "It's a Long Way to Tipperary" on the boat's gramophone'....a capital sin in Nazi Germany.....it was a British marching song.

The scenes of them riding out a fierce storm on the surface are brilliant....and when they are stuck on the sea bed too....it was amazing when they managed to surface again.

40,000 submariners served in U Boats.....10,000 survived....a rather dangerous job !!

Almost as bad as British Bomber Command....over 55,000 aircrew killed....Isn't war disgusting?

Peace and Blessings to everyone.....I hope I haven't upset anyone.

The Black Swan

Mostly because the imagery on the cover intrigued me. It turns out to be a fairly interesting watch, a bit disturbing but maybe that's just me as I tend to get too absorbed in the character's emotional lives and start sympathizing.
