List creator: adamjoelf
Created on: October 16, 2003 - 12:33 AM PDT
Description: --and what's the difference anyhow? Best reckoned w/film: check it out: new & old, minus the QT

average rating MPAA rating watch rent buy
Queen Kelly (1929)
Not Rated
  Fun, faithful and garish naturalism: what would Stroheim be doing today...?
Goodbye South, Goodbye (1996)
Not Rated
  Hou's "Mean Streets": longer and comfortably quotidian: every real moment
The Puppetmaster (1993)
Not Rated
  Better Hou primer. More varied and compelling: the "Real" and the Ultrareal
Blue Velvet (1986)
  How can you exclude David Lynch? Weird doesn't startle this naturalist
The Blue Angel (German Version) (1930)
  Mundane yet wonderfully stylized, Janning's subtly expressionistic and Deitrich's deadpan are perfect naturalism, cast in fine detail by von Sternberg
Pulp Fiction (1994)
  Why I prefer naturalism as a style. "QT"s infamous "Cheesburger Royale" take on realistic dialogue first order crap. Besides creative (yet not innovative) structuring, mostly an unfunny bore.
The Passion of Joan of Arc (Criterion Collection) (1928)
Not Rated
  Carl Dreyer's pairing of a nearly scientific realism in acting style set against his naturalistic/impressionistic settings and directorial handling is absolutely stunning
Vampyr (1931)
Not Rated
  Supreme example of how realistic acting excels in otherwordly circumstances; another by Dreyer, supreme naturalist.
