Having seen I'm Not There a couple of days ago, I still can't get it out of my head.

Holy Mountain. Seriously. If you don't like experimental film, don't watch it.

Futurama the Movie: Bender's Big Score (direct to DVD): With all the fart and penis jokes, and the digs at Family Guy and the Fox network, it's still the most intellectually-stimulating film to have come out of the US in the past months. And the extras are pretty cool.

Children of Men is probably the last one that tired me out. Before that, it was the Lord of the Rings movies. I just feel mentally exhausted after watching them.

I also watch (and was amazed by) The Barbarian Invasions awhile back ... not a current movie, but worth mentioning since it plays on IFC all of the time, and that was the first time I ever heard of it.

Then there's some regulars.

So I guess my list would be...

Planet Terror
The Departed
Children of Men
The Barbarian Invasions
Miami Vice (it's one of the couple movies that I've rewatched lately)

Southland Tales was very memorable. But I can't call it satisfying.

I guess I need to see The Prestige. I have kind of passed it off.
