    I thought it could be fun, seeing as we are now a fifth of the way through the century, to make some more lists! Inspired by the NYTimes article, give us your top actors, films, scenes, directors; anything you want!

    I’m starting with the top 25 actors of the century thus far. Very hard to do, and half the list would look different tomorrow. Tried to break away from American actors as much as I could.

    1. Zhao Tao
    2. Isabelle Huppert
    3. Ventura
    4. Juliette Binoche
    5. Shah Rukh Khan
    6. Lee Kang-sheng

    Please tell me why do you dislike The Lobster, Elephant and Under The Skin

    About The Lobster and Under The Skin, I find them to be incredibly dense and in the case of former pretty stupid. I got nothing from them and it was really hard to even finish them. I can understand the love for UTS though, so don’t hate me; it just wasn’t for me.

    Now, The Lobster is something I don’t get the praise for so I would like to know why you like it too. That quirky and uncomfortable humor didn’t work with me at all and the film being so reliant on it made it even worse and even less interesting. It was also constantly and needlessly cruel, right? Like, I guess that is partially his idea and style but maybe he could have done something else for like, idk, 10 minutes? The boring color palette and repetitive score made it even more boring too. Oh, and Colin Farrell kind of makes every film worse.

    Then, about Elephant, I thought it was just a try-hard mess. I don’t like when films try to address so many problematics at once because I find no interest in them if they are loosely conveyed. One second it was showing bulimia, then it was showing the influence of video games on children and then it was randomly addressing nazism??? All in 80 minutes?? It just didn’t feel right to me. I get that the ideas can be related to the main plot of the film but maybe the director could have worked more on them instead of giving them a minute and then exhibit so much violence just because. It’s a very, very showy film that I personally didn’t enjoy at all.

    Thanks for being polite, by the way. OccultCherry can choke!
