Hi Erik- I loved Jacob's Ladder and Groundhog Day, as well as a few others you have listed.
Everything is all weird since XP died. I can't bring myself to get involved in some new website-thing to see the "dirty" pictures. It's so depressing.
I also love Gaspar Noe.
I saw Desperate Living for the first time when I was 10 years old... haha... and it changed my life. ha. I'm glad you enjoyed it. I only wish Divine had been casted in it... sigh. Have you seen Pink Flamingos or Female Trouble? Both are worthy of viewing as well.
Thanks for the perspective. I had a hard time deciding between 3 and 4 stars for this one. I didn't "like" it so much as it really stuck with me and got under the skin. The performances were a marvel. Definitely a departure for Cronenberg.
Seen anything phenomenal lately?
Are you into anime at all? I joined a private Japanese anime forum on Ning recently, and have been turning my brain to cottage cheese watching hentai (the sexy pervy stuff), and a bit of sci-fi, "cyberpunk" anime. I'm not a total anime-fan, but the Japanese sure do have a corner on the pervy, weird S#$& market, and their animation is no exception! I'll send you an invite if you're interested.
