Hi I'm new


actors: Anatoli Solonitsyn, Robert de Niro
actresses: Liv Ullman, Mia Farrow

Personally I'm not too big on particular actors/actresses, so I find it hard to name specific ones. I can appreciate a good performance when I see it (e.g. Liv Ullman in Scenes from a Marriage or Autumn Sonata) but I don't really watch films for specific actors.

directors: Darren Aronofsky, Andrei Tarkovsky, Sergei Paradjanov, Ingmar Bergman, Woody Allen, Martin Scorsese
movies: Solaris (both versions), The Fountain, The Legend of Suram Fortress, Pi, Stalker, Kundun, Apocalypse Now, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Aguirre: The Wrath of God, The Original Star Wars Trilogy, The Lord of the Rings Trilogy

movie you watched: Steven Soderbergh's Solaris. I really loved it.
foreign movie you watched: I'm assuming you mean non-American film? Halfway through Why Has Bodhidharma Left for the East? by Bae Yong-kyun.
movie viewed at a film festival: Dombivli Fast by Nishikant Kamat
movie you saw in theatres: Darren Aronofsky's The Fountain. I've decided that it's my current favourite film, because it's the film that has affected me the most powerfully.

movie you want to watch: Hoping to finish Why Has Bodhidharma Left for the East? actually. And then moving on to Mizoguchi's Ugetsu.
movie you hope will bomb: Nothing in particular. I just wish all unoriginal, purely made for money movies would cease being produced.

While I'm here I thought I would link to an Andrei Tarkovsky community I recently created. As I noticed that he is one of the interests listed in this comm's userinfo, I thought there would be at least a few people here who would appreciate his work.
