That's Tom Waits but I don't know the movie. Anything from the last 20 years and I'm lost.  :D

 

I was aiming this one at you Martin as the director is of the Monty Python fame and also the last pic posted of the singer with welding goggles or similar reminded me of Tom Waits and this movie heaps.

 

Another 2 pics from it:

I've seen quite a few Terry Gilliam movies but this one I haven't.

It's a trip and a half. Made in 2009. Heath Ledgers last role as the film was half done when he passed, so J Depp, Jude Law and others filmed the rest of the scenes in Heaths place. It's a gargantuan scale of an undertaking and therefore a bit on the long side. But definitely worth a look.

Imaginarium was mildly entertaining, saw Terry's latest The Man Who Killed Don Quixote at MIFF last year, very disappointing, it's long production time certainly shows, a dog's breakfast!

Haven't seen TMWKDQ, and off course Imaginarium is probably not as good as Terrys other earlier work (suffering both from "bitten off more than one can chew" and loosing the lead actor mid filming - then try to make something - anything of the project). I find with directors and artists in general there tends to be a case of diminishing returns as they head into the 3rd act of their lives (eg Francis Ford-Coppola) although it's not a rule (Clint Eastwood, Tom Waits, Leonard Cohen). And Terry being Terry has a much greater free hand, artistic licence and less hassle from the producers in his films, which of course leads to overproduction/ complexity and mess.

 

It's interesting that Bob Dylan in early/mid 2000's TV interview commented about those early magical albums that the only person that could have done such work is Bob in his youth and that it's almost a work of a stranger to him (heavily paraphrasing from memory...) and in a different league to his later work.

Correct and correct!!!!

 

The wake in fright, just steamrolled me when I first saw it 5 or so years ago - colossally underrated and relevant to these days also. I reckon TWIF is kinda like the drugged and abused version of  They're a Weird Mob.

Gee did I feel sophisticated seeing, understanding, liking and admiring this film at the time.

 

Name the five lead actors and the Director.

Haha, beat me to it, definitely an entertaining film: I wouldn't have remembered the cast without a quick Google search either though

That's a substantial part of European Cinema right there.  For me that film was like a dash of sorbet between dinner courses, at the time I was frequenting the Valhalla and the films of Lina Wertmuller.

the dude looks like young Alec Baldwin (or maybe William)

 

no clue re which movie, other than : 80's cops/robbers, a Dirty Harry knockoff

 

 

 

edit: gotta love the chest/abdomen-scaping efforts

You're correct, zippi. It is a young Alec Baldwin.

the suspense was killing me so I googled Alec Baldwin a few hours ago and am undignified enough to say I do know the title now.

 

Miami Blues 

 

from what I could gather sounds like a worthwhile watch and somewhat above the "run of the mill" cops/robbers movies of the day. Will seek it out.

It's quite a good movie. Like you say, not your typical cops and robbers movie. Baldwin does a great job in the lead. Definitely worth watching.

Ha--Good but forgettable --the only scene I remember is when the old bag sticks the knife through his hand on the counter!

In the course of finding out the name yesterday - ran across this.

 

http://thepinksmoke.com/historymiamiblues1.htm

 

I only skimmed the looong review of sorts and it surprised in lots of ways.

Not many  reviewers will come up with a list of movies that changed their life like this

 

PART 1: THE DISCREET CHARM OF THE BOURGEOISIE
PART 2: NAKED
PART 3: THE SMARTEST MAN IN THE WORLD
PART 4: METROPOLITAN
PART 5: THE WHITE RIBBON
PART 6: MIAMI BLUES

 

and then proceed to write a damn near a book chapter on each.

I'ma definitely going to chase this movie down - look at the company it's in - how could I not. Thanks Martin @mrbuzzardstubble
