i love wildlife/sports/travel films, and this was one of the best at telluride mountainfilm festival last spring, i think is where i saw it (the festivals do tend to run together after awhile). i'm always on the lookout for films which are simultaneously action- and outdoors-oriented and deeply profound, and "sinners" fits the bill. it is loaded up with ski porn (meaning insane ski antics, the usual jumping, big powder, nuttiness, etc.) in the warren miller-ish sense, but it also delves into the mystery of being alive as well, as it incorporates an interview with a 100-year-old man who has been skiing his entire life. i think you'll have fun with it. let me know.

Well, if I can't talk about those, you won't want me bringing up Outer Limits or Millinneum again either. That's it, if I can't talk about the dark side of human nature, I actually have nothing left to talk about. I think Meryem is the Yin to my dark Yang.

Ooooooo....


Blade Runner- One of my favorites!

Watch out Sean- She might pull out a secretly developed weapon designed by Edison in the early 1900's. (jk)

Hey!

Who says Rutger Hauer in Blade Runner is the evil shadow in the film? :)

Actually, I believe that one of the reasons that threw Blade Runner into cult was the fact that Roy Batty (Rutger's character) stood out as as noble as Deckard himself.

Cheers,

Hugo

the original outer limits is fine. anything photographed in black and white won't be censored, because the era in which they were photographed usually brings with it an inherently campy quality. anything that makes me laugh is in!

anyone ever seen an old british B&W film entitled "psychomania?" now THAT'S the good stuff! i should suggest that to dylan, his tastes seem to run towards quirky, campy horror. motorcycle punks who find the secret to returning from the dead and then go around committing suicide so that they can come back and really rip things up without regard for the consequences. irresistible! look, my darkside unleashed!

yin to your yang, sean, you crack me up!

"I've done, questinable things."

Excellent character. Especially in the death scene. The little twitches, excellent. When he rams his head through the wall...

And Edward Almos and the cop. "If you're not cop, you're little people."

"Time to die."

okay, boys, enough with the head-ramming. take it outside, please!

with all the guns and aliens and soul-stealing and murder and mayhem floating around these parts, you would think that we could keep one tiny little corner devoted to beauty and truth. sheesh.

throw 'em one little bone in the darkside direction, and they're on it like a pack of dogs!

I agree with you 100% Meryem. I love the rare movies about more than just dark things. People always say that's life, dark, depressing things. But I know for a fact there are just as many light and happy things and you can choose to contribute to either one. I liked your movie quite a bit, but even more I enjoyed your views and opinions in this thread, especially the movie recommendations! Thanks for that too.

He's right. I feel bad now. Back to the sunny side of the street.

Dear Mereym,

I can assure you that I am the subject of your good deeds (yes...that is plural).

I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of Brothers Quay, Sinners and Genghis Blues (2 weeks till they get more in). Can't wait!
