The Tramp is such an awesome characte and Lady calling her masters Jim Dear and Darling all the time is hilarious.

I'm a hopeless romantic, I guess, and that's the movie where the love story seems the least like a side plot. Haha.

Are you having a lot of spare time this year?

Hah. A bit. When I was in grad school, I watched something like a new movie every three weeks. So I've been binging a bit since.

Any recommendations so I can add them to my watch list?

In that batch? Or in general?

As far as the "artistically acceptable" stuff on there, The Ear (Ucho) was pretty excellent, The Miracle of Morgan's Creek is hysterical, and Out of Sight (not arty, but...well...Soderbergh) was wonderful.

I also really liked JFK and The Prince of Tides, but I know those two are the kind of stuff cinephiles like to rip apart.

Also The Sunshine Boys was a phenomenally well-acted and well-written comedy.

Worse. SO much worse. And before people come in for "it's for kids, come on," it's even empty in that respect.

Though the Flop House episode I watched this for more than made up for the experience, which included racist goats, flying giant sombreros, and a pillow with a face that acted like Stephen Hawking minus the intellect.

Damn. Makes me really sad Christopher Lloyd participated. Haha.

There's this 30 minute documentary of Buñuel titled Las Hurdes, I believe it's the only thing in that genre that he made and it´s spectacular and sad. And I don't know how much familiarized are you with Mexican cinema but I just watched Macario, one of its masterpieces from the so called Golden Age of Mexican Cinema, I think you would really liked it.

I've seen Las Hurdes. Crushingly depressing. But he's also a huge douche and staged a lot of that shit. Haha.

And I know so little (almost nothing) about Mexican film, sadly.
