More loot

I must be in rare dysfunctional form, because I got through Wednesday’s loot by Saturday morning.  And that includes the five hour mini-series Scenes from a Marriage.  So I ran back to the library to grab the following movies to get me through until next Wednesday:

    Nice haul! I especially dig that you rented 8 1/2. With NINE coming out next month, I found myself wanting to brush up on my Felinni.

    The Felinni aficianado who I asked about him was good enough to loan me OPEN CITY and L’AVVENTURA. He suggested starting with those two, and leaving 8 1/2 til the end for how very odd it is.

    Enjoy ‘em!

    But wait! Neither of those are Fellini movies. I really dug L’avventura though. I think you’ll like it. If you got the Criterion Collection edition, the Gene Youngblood commentary is freaking fantastic.

    Holy shit – you’re not kidding. Mental note: smack the reccomender.

    I know he mentioned OPEN CITY since Felinni wrote it…kinda like bringing up NATURAL BORN KILLERS when discussing the work of Tarentino.

    As it stands, the copy of AVVENTURA I was loaned was indeed the Criterion. So after I watch it once through, I’ll definitely go back and watch it with the commentary.

    In other news, I’m probably gonna start podcasting soon – any thoughts/suggestions for comments that might make for an intersting twenty plus minutes of Hatter babbling?

    My bad – it was LA STRADA he loaned me, not L’AVVENTURA.

    That makes so much more sense. You’ll have to tell me if you like it. The only other Fellini film I’ve seen is La Dolce Vita (which was fantastic).
