The Stuff (1985)
I watched Look Who's Back in Denmark on a German station. Odd movie.
Is this the one where Dar Robinson does the high dive off of the CN Tower? Because I remember that being a week long event when they filmed that scene. Highest and longest wire fall in the World.I don't know if this is obscure, but I don't see it discussed very often and I absolutely love it. Just recently re-watched The Stunt Man (1980). I read the book, saw the movie on original release, bought the soundtrack and bought the dvd. Definitely an 80's movie in its excesses, but its excesses are wonderful.
no, this is starring Peter O'Toole, Barbara Hershey and Steve Railsback.Is this the one where Dar Robinson does the high dive off of the CN Tower? Because I remember that being a week long event when they filmed that scene. Highest and longest wire fall in the World.
Just watched The Man Who Killed Don Quixote this past weekend. IMO, one of Gilliams better efforts of late. I was a big fan of Time Bandits, Fisher King and Brazil, but thought some of the more recent work, particularly Parnassus and Tideland, felt like he was grasping for an audience connection.Frau im Mond ("Woman in the moon") by Fritz Lang, 1921
It was fairly well thought out, for the time. They have the rocket being rolled out upright from the vehicle assembly building to the launch site, and he introduces the notion of counting down to zero before a rocket launch.
Also, a woman astronaut.
A few more...
The Adventures of Baron Munchausen
The Fisher King (maybe not so obscure, since it won Oscars and Golden Globe awards)
The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus
The Time Bandits
... all with the involvement (screenplay and/or directing) of Terry Gilliam.
All of them rather surreal.
