    if we're talking 'first time I ever saw it' then honestly it might be District 9

    if we're talking overall, after multiple viewings it's probably The Good the Bad and the Ugly

    Whats most impressive for me is that he's kept his edge down the years from Malkovich, to Adapatation, to Wild Things to Her. Normally I think the problem with this kind of "indie twee" style is that someone starts off with a bit of edge like Burton with Beatlejuice, Wes Anderson with Rushmore or Gondry with Eternal Sunshine and then gradually lose it ending up as glib middle class whimsy.

    Her especially was a premise that I think could have failen back to tweeness alone but still had both a dramatic edge to it and the propensity to include swearing alien children and dead cat fetish cybersex jokes.

    Its amazing really that someone given such a big second chance at his career was able to flush it down the toilet again quite that quickly.

    Coolest man on earth in 1994, most uncool man on earth by 1996.

    Me too! My Dad took me and I went in as a kid not knowing what it was. I was afraid to put my feet on the floor half way through lol. Relentless, intense, extreme. We walked out out hearts pumping, and he goes “Don’t tell your mother”

    From my own personal experiences.

    Terminator 2
    Jurassic Park
    Saving Private Ryan
    The Matrix
    The Lord of the Rings Trilogy

    These were all huge when they came out and had the whole world talking

    Tweeness is a funny word to say aloud.

    I was thinking about Wes Anderson the other day, remarking how this current iteration is quite refine technically-speaking. He seems to have dialed in what he wants, and what he wants is something like a Warner's Bros cartoon mixed in with a little Kubrick. It's almost easy to forget he's the guy who gave us one of the most heart-breaking -- and real -- depictions of slashing one's own wrists. I think THAT'S who Wes Anderson is, beneath the layers of technique, and if he let go on the cutesy-wootsy he'd probably venture into Sofia Coppola territory, or even PT Anderson. I feel like he has something more to say, than drolly reciting the absurdity of manners.

    There are films that I've rated higher and I think are better, but Drive is the film that comes to mind here. That shit was so unique and special, and flawlessly executed. I thought it was stunning

    The fountain and Tarsem Sing's " The fall"

    Both films had incredible stories and were very clearly a labor of love from the directors

    maybe I need to rewatch it....but when I saw this movie all I could think to myself was "what the fuck? REALLY??" I thought it was so boring and cringey.

    I'm never opposed to giving something a second chance though
