The Boston Logan International Airport has a really intense exterior architecture.
The Amoeba Record Store in LA is very large. I wonder if it’s the best music store in the world. it’s almost like a Best Buy remodeled with added windows…
It’s also like the west coast hipster paradox to the east coast. Maybe you may even spot someone who looks exactly like you.
I think this list exists mostly because of the no.10 movie. I suddenly thought of it, and now it’s complete:
1. Opening Night (John Cassavetes) - In my humble opinion Cassavetes’ best film, the relationships are different than in his other films, they’re not as close, more distant and therefore has more tension in a sense.
2. Late Autumn (Yasujiro Ozu) - I liked this one a lot because Setsuko Hara is older, more mature, more beautiful even.
3. Bed and Board (Francois Truffaut) - The music is great, and it’s really cool to see Jean Pierre Leaud’s character at this point in his life, married and drifting in his career, but yeah I’m just a great fan of movies set in modern life…
4. Band Of Outsiders (Jean Luc Godard) - this is a great one because the narration isn’t boring and and music is very touching to me.
5. Carlos (Olivier Assayas) - A fantastic character portrait done similar to an action film. It has an amazing set piece in a tiny apartment, the shoot out that happens and the cinematography is like the best.
6. Playtime (Jacques Tati) - To me the dinner dancing restaurant scene makes the movie and it’s too bad you can’t grasp all the details in every shot. It’s so exciting to soak in the atmosphere of that restaurant scene. Incredible.
7. The White Sheik (Federico Fellini) - Adorable. It isn’t too strong on any themes, and it feels like a kid could really enjoy it. Don’t know why but there’s something special about it.
8. The Marriage of Maria Braun (Rainer Werner Fassbinder) - This one is very entertaining, and Hanna Schygulla is perfect because we can’t get enough of her.
9. The Small Back Room (Michael Powell/Emeric Pressburger) - I really like this one because it’s set modernly (at least for that time) and the black and white. A lot of it is very mysterious and unexplained and that’s part of it’s charm.
10. I Vitelloni (Federico Fellini) - I think this one is so indelible and it stays with you. For some reason the small town setting makes it seem like we can relate to these people, and we do.
