Sometimes a bit inconsistent, sometimes didactic, but it's worth the time.
Now here is the end of this series.
I think I just cancel my subscription television.

Onibaba now sixty years old.
Onibaba (1964) - IMDb
It is timeless, anyway.

Teshigahara, "Woman in the Dunes"

Gyuri, you are not the most cheerful person around.

damn, hard question.

If I could choose only one movie, I would probably pick pulp fiction. Raging bull is also very up there.

this year, by far, Boyhood is the best movie of 2014

Not the most cheerful person who knows good movies, or the life of a party with lousy taste for flics.
Mm, tough choice.

(Gyuri, Battlestar Galactica, shame on you. The 60 million dollar mormon man passed away a week ago, btw)

Hmmm ... not sure about "best movies", but high on the list are those I can watch over and over again, never tire of - they have a quality of "freshness" about them that shines through, every time ...

Two of those that come to mind are "Cabaret", and "Charade" - hmmm, do I detect a pattern here, I wonder ...

Why should I be ashamed of myself?
Why, because the best what happens of today's Hungarian television, the Battlestar Galactica?
I possibly could look to Big Brother and similar productions.
Squalor and filth.
This is what we get, this is probably what we deserve.
I have no illusions, I think this is the case everywhere else.
I hated communism as sh!t.
But there were series in the public television, (we had only two) Akira Kurosawa, Marcello Mastroianni series.
Good old hungarian films.
Even Peter Bacsó's film "A Tanú" was also screened once.
I suppose, heads fallen in the dust after that.
French, Italian, German(!) New Wave films and so on!
If ... I can seen this by Lindsay Anderson.
And my eternal favorite, perhaps in Mastroianni series, Leo The Last, by John Boorman.
I do not know, sometimes I think now could come already in that asteroid or something to stop this lie, what we called life.
Eh, whatever.
I'm just a grumpy old man.

Try and catch the next two of Lindsay's series. Kubrick can be seen in a cameo in "Clockwork Orange" admiring a copy of "Misa Luba" in a record shop.

As a result, 2/3d of the Dutch TV channels currently are commercial ones, which broadcast filth all day.
The BB guy started out as a coffee help at a commercial TV station, now he owns part of several.

Thing is, 2/3d of the viewers have the desire to watch filth.
2/3d had a filth wish all along, but didn't get what they wanted up till two decades ago.
Same deal on your end, you could have been a grumpy young guy.

(a genuine grumpy one would assume the asteroid to miss the target by a hair)

So the Dutchies brought us "Hell on Wheels", learn something new everyday (patiently waiting for the reality show thing to jump the shark).
