Nashville and McCabe & Mrs. Miller are two of my all-time favorite movies. I also loved Short Cuts when I saw it. But no Robert Altman movie can prepare you for 3 Women. I was immediately drawn into its strange, brooding, atonal world, and by the time it was over, I was floored.

Night of the Hunter was the last one that floored me. Why didn't Charles Laughton direct more movies?

I joined this forum very late, but the last film/Documentary I saw that really flored me is Voices of Iraq. Unfortunalety I do not know how to link the sites by the name as you all do, so here's the link;fc=1;ft=1

Nothing can prepare you for 3 Women. I've watched that probably several dozen times and it still leaves me stupefied.

Some time ago someone did a documentary called "The Epic That Never Was," all about Laughton's tragic efforts to get his production of I, Claudius filmed. Some scenes were shot and were included in the doc. Imagine Laughton as Claudius! It certainly would have been his greatest film. It's almost too heartbreaking to watch. What a crime!

Last thing I saw that totally stunned me was Session 9.

The last film that floored me was Judex. I liked Les Vampires, but did not drool over the way others have. I will say that the ending of Judex did not impress me, but after a moderately slow openning episode, the first 5-7 epsisodes floored me. Israel wrote a fantastic score, and its nice to get a full orchestra for a change in a silent film.

The documentary Cinema Europe was also fantastic (Even though it barely mentioned Judex!)

The film i rented from Greencine that I disliked the most recently was Aelita:Queen of Mars.... you'd think coherent nonsloppy narrative structures had not been invented yet in 1925 in Russia.

By the way, when are we going to get some Abel Gance on DVD?
