You should also watch Marguerite de la Nuit, I would be curious to hear your thoughts on it if you can find it, a pretty obscure French film from the fifties. Wasn't too impressed with Wild Strawberries or Blade Runner but last night I downloaded a few of the films you listed above, I'll let you know my thoughts on them after I watch them.

i saw the mirror, it's visual/artistically lovely but it didn't really affect me much.

great films recently seen:

the death of mr. lazarescu - actually watched about 2/3rds of this years ago, and have been meaning to watch the whole thing, and did so recently! it's outstanding. maybe it's lost in translation but i didn't peg it as a "dark comedy" as it's marketed. there are certainly elements of the absurd and exasperation, but i didn't get any comedic affect. great sense of gradually building pathos for the main character.

marriage italian style - vittorio de sica is a master of emotion. this is a comedy-drama that pulls off both aspects perfectly while being intertwined, with a compelling story and very compelling female lead.

saw this a few months ago and thought it was fantastic. still need to check out the rest of kaufman's oeuvre.
Both are polarising, but Synecdoche. New York is absolutely essential viewing.
Quote:Well, I open my eyes and I see things. I've seen spirits moving through the walls. I've seen a vortex coming through the wall. I've seen amorphous little balls of light bouncing all around in the front yard through the window. I've seen giant bugs on the floor. I was in a hotel room in Amarillo, Texas, and all I remember is standing on the bed and seeing the whole wall in front of me filled with lights that were [makes popping sound] popping like popcorn out of the wall. Then I'll wake up and I go "Wow, I was standing on my bed and staring at this wall."
i liked synecdoche new york a lot when i watched it years ago.
