The ending works nicely symbolically - a raving conspiracy theorist rides right through the “liberty day” celebrations, unconsciously attempting to shatter the illusions of the public, break the artifice, listen beneath the surface of appearances. I lied, that’s not the real ending, and just like in ‘Blowup / Blow up / BlowUp / Blow Up / Blow-up / Blow-Up’ and ‘The Conversation’ things take a worse turn: the protagonist eventually succumbs, gives up and in fact uses his “truth” to further illusions (that nicely tie in with the nature of "cinema").
Nice observation. I guess I missed this somewhat because things get so over-the-top, illogical and melodramatic towards the end that the film loses me a bit in all its ridiculousness. The very end is pretty chilling, though. Did you watch it on Blu-ray / BluRay / Blue Ray / Bluray / BR / bluray / Blue-ray or on DVD?
Chilling indeed. And Travolta can definitely pull off this sad, hopeless face.
You just asked that question so you can play around with a word too :P (saw it on DVD)
Another good title with nice spelling variations that I can think off is The Hateful Eight / The Hateful 8 / The H8ful Eight / The H8ful 8 / T8r8ntin8's 8th film.

#15 Beau Travail (1999, Claire Denis) 6

“The predominant mode of this material is reverie — poetic rumination that pointedly doesn’t discriminate between major and minor events, intertwining both into a kind of endless magical tapestry. A gorgeous early image superimposing emerald blue water in motion over a hand writing in a diary evokes the magic to come. (…) Denis works in a wonderfully spare and beautiful style that allows mountains, plains, deserts, and bodies of water to speak eloquently for themselves, and she lets a tone of plaintive lament in the offscreen narration run across these diverse settings and textures without ever becoming self-pitying.” - Rosenbaum

How is “violence” then portrayed? As lumbering routine, hidden exasperation, worn-out thoughts: “My muscles are rusty. I’m rusty, eaten away by acid.” Denis is really adept in depicting this and hence it’s no surprise how well-esteemed this film is.

The dark unbottom’d infinite Abyss,
And through the palpable obscure find out
His uncouth way, or spread his aerie flight,
Upborn with indefatigable wings,
Over the vast abrupt, ere he arrive

#16 Trouble Every Day (2001, Claire Denis) 5
I miss Paris and like Gallo, but there isn’t much going on here (intellectually, atmospherically, even in terms of shock-factor). To contrast, anticipate or set up the (here unremarkable) “New French Extremity” sequences, the film is deliberately composed of almost nothing but empty gestures, routine and moments of simple, repetitive, mellow yet doleful music. I would not exclude myself among the people that like this sort of stuff in general and I’m not saying that I’d be more grateful for more acute characterisation or meaningful dialogue, since that’s not what it’s about and the absence of those two things can pretty much be considered the point (i.e. alienation, seemingly arbitrary inexpressible potency of violent desire), however the makeshift quality of almost everything, though appreciable on many levels, did not work on me. I forgot most shots already, and their mood has been tame. So I also don’t understand why this is considered a “horror” or “thriller”, but then again maybe my sensibilities are harder and colder than average.

#17 Vendredi soir (2002, Claire Denis) 3
I still miss Paris. Continues in a comparable style to ‘Trouble Every Day’, but takes place in a shorter time and has characters which are less deviant (it’s not an Extremity film, and very far from it). And similarily, I wasn’t affected. And worse, for the most part it was torpid, trite and soppy.

Positive feedback loops, dissipation, war, assembly line, network of industries, mechanisation, filmmaker’s work and financing, symbolic imagery, ... Challenging, tiring, gripping, informative, debatable, and almost definitely relentless and muddling (in a good sense, i.e. difficult to digest) montage of ideas.

whom shall we find
Sufficient? who shall tempt with wand’ring feet
The dark unbottom’d infinite Abyss,
And through the palpable obscure find out
His uncouth way, or spread his aerie flight,
Upborn with indefatigable wings,
Over the vast abrupt, ere he arrive
The happy Ile?

10. Frederick Wiseman - In Jackson Heights (2015) - 5/10
11. Frederick Wiseman - Central Park (1990) - 6/10
12. Frederick Wiseman - Domestic Violence (2001) - 8/10

Domestic Violence was easily the gem among these three. One of the more powerful Wiseman films I've seen, and made so much more so as an act of observation rather than something blasting a more blatant message. This of course if true for pretty much every Wiseman doc, but I think it's more apparent when the subject matter is this heavy.

The neck pain of obscure origin can be read literally and metaphorically, and in both cases the prospects of the protagonist and his parents aren’t looking good. There exists no catharsis to constant (existential) malaise pervading all aspects of life, introducing (or amplifying) meaningless pain to basic activities (like eating, sleeping, driving a bike), inhibiting socialisation, and exacerbating existing bleak relationships. Tsai’s style is characterised by a linear succession of bold and even bitterly humourous scenes, too-overt symbolism and exasperating situations happening to passive characters, living in hollow, punctured spaces gradually flooded by water.

Nice extension to The River, carrying over its visual symbolic motives (water, holes, the apartment: walls, ceilings and floors) and accenutating its drabness, bleakness and irony in a more confined setting.

whom shall we find
Sufficient? who shall tempt with wand’ring feet
The dark unbottom’d infinite Abyss,
And through the palpable obscure find out
His uncouth way, or spread his aerie flight,
Upborn with indefatigable wings,
Over the vast abrupt, ere he arrive
The happy Ile?

Nur dein Auge – ungeheuer / Blickt michs an, Unendlichkeit!

A bulk of Antonioni films, stark and barren, only with numbers, without any words, because what good are words in this solemn detached topology, anyway? Maybe we should all refrain from talking for a while and start staring at the immense spaces unfolding around us, achieving a deeper connection with trees, rocks, architectural vestiges, electricity pylons, all kinds of things, or… mists?

whom shall we find
Sufficient? who shall tempt with wand’ring feet
The dark unbottom’d infinite Abyss,
And through the palpable obscure find out
His uncouth way, or spread his aerie flight,
Upborn with indefatigable wings,
Over the vast abrupt, ere he arrive
The happy Ile?

Real good one. And one that could be added to the big list of influences on O Brother Where Art Thou - the baptism in the river scene was used for sure.

#32 Sátántangó (1994, Béla Tarr)
It would be useless to describe the playing of Erich Zann on that dreadful night. It was more horrible that anything I had ever overheard, because I could now see the expression of his face, and could realise that this time the motive was stark fear. He was trying to make a noise; to ward something off or drown something out - what, I could not imagine, awesome though I felt it must be. The playing grew fantastic, delirious, and hysterical, yet kept to the last the qualities of supreme genius which I knew this strange old man possessed. I recognised the air - it was a wild Hungarian dance popular in the theatres, and I reflected for a moment that this was the first time I had ever heard Zann play the work of another composer.

Louder and louder, wilder and wilder, mounted the shrieking and whining of that desperate viol. The player was dripping with an uncanny perspiration and twisted like a monkey, always looking frantically at the curtained window. In his frenzied strains I could almost see shadowy satyrs and Bacchanals dancing and whirling insanely through seething abysses of clouds and smoke and lightning.
(…) [It gets even more devilish later on] - a passage from a story by H.P. Lovecraft I coincidentally read the same night I began watching ‘Satan’s Tango’. [emphasis mine]

‘Satan’s Tango’ isn’t that, it doesn’t depict some indescribable Abomenon, but it has certain apocalyptic sentiments, the sense of being on an edge before some unseen abyss the Devil’s music lures its prey into. No, that isn’t right either, there exists no clear Sodom and Gomorrah here - the world is rather flat and destitute, an enormous hypnotic ghetto, where modest sustainment with intermittent intoxication naturally surpass dreams and aspirations, a life too dreary for even religious commitment. A meagre community, embedded within an cut-off unescapable closed, yet extensive bubble snow-globe realm (with asymptotic limits / seeming openness), with a cyclic history, sheltered from exit. (Only the dead can escape, and only those risen from death can return.) The sound of the ticking clock, or that of the wind and crows, or that of the music creeping in behind everything else, is all the magic there’s to it. Crumbling textures, vapid dazes, numbing ramble, and plodding, plodding, plodding, plodding, and tango, tango, tango, tango, tango is my life, tango, my name is tango.

whom shall we find
Sufficient? who shall tempt with wand’ring feet
The dark unbottom’d infinite Abyss,
And through the palpable obscure find out
His uncouth way, or spread his aerie flight,
Upborn with indefatigable wings,
Over the vast abrupt, ere he arrive
The happy Ile?

Nur dein Auge – ungeheuer / Blickt michs an, Unendlichkeit!
Close the world. ʇxǝu ǝɥʇ uǝdO.
