    Suggest a movie to watch this weekend

    Shop Now
    Of the last 20 or so movies I've watched, I only liked Cloud Atlas and Amour. Maybe it's just a bad spell but I feel like I've seen all the good movies that exist.

    These are the other movies I liked over the past year:

    Samsara
    2001: A Space Odyessey
    This is Spinal Tap
    Once Upon A Time in Anatolia
    Midnight In Paris
    Cache
    Biutiful
    Zodiac
    Se7en
    Headhunters

    Can somebody recommend me a good movie to watch this weekend? Foreign films are definitely game.

    I don't often like films, but I very much enjoyed Intouchables . It is funny and heartwarming and the soundtrack is full of intricate, plangent pianos. Eat Drink Man Woman. Antonia's Line. Babette's Feast. La Reine Margot. Battle Royale... Seen them all? Also, second the vote for the Three Colours trilogy.

    My favourite foreign films:

    - Pan's Labyrinth (El laberinto del fauno)
    - Life is Beautiful (La vita bella)
    - Open Your Eyes (Abre los ojos) - this was actually remade into "Vanilla Sky"... which I thought was shit. This, the original, is amazing.

    Other:

    - Bladerunner
    - The Big Lebowski

    etc.
    "I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

    In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

    Great movies! I also love This is Spinal Tap.

    Seems like you may like more artsy types or maybe even foreign films. Check out Like Water for Chocolate, Cinema Paradiso, Eat Drink, Man Woman, High Art and a lot of movies on IFC if you have cable. I will also give Pan's Labrynth 2 enthusiastic thumbs up
