Subject: RE: BS: Films I just cannot watch easily!!
Novocento/1900 had one of those scenes Kendall hates. I could describe the scene, but it ended with the boy's death and if I'd seen Donald Sutherland on the street after coming out of the theater, somebody would have needed to hold me back. That scene haunts me to this day. The movie itself was merely too long.
Like SRS, I hate those stupid movies. There is enough stupidity in real life and we don't need to celebrate it. I can watch just about anything: sex, violence (rock & roll), creepiness & horror, weirdness (as in Pan's Labyrinth) if done well. Accidentally bad movies can be entertaining, but I HATE it when it feels like the people who made the movie were trying too hard to impress.
