5. Der Himmel über Berlin (1987, Wenders)

Amazing cinematography, holy moly.
That being said I'm already getting burned out of those romance movies so I'm going to take this a little slower. I need diversification more than anyone else it seems.
I saved Latin, what did you ever do ?

Agreed about the movie. City of Angels (the American remake) was one of my favorites for a long time, but Wings of Desire is better in every single way.

And yeah... the burnout thing is real. Some things I can binge more than others, but I tend to burn out on genres pretty quickly. Definitely need different stuff quite frequently to keep me interested and engaged.

I also got tired of the romance after 8 movies...first time doing a genre challenge and it seems to be more difficult than others

1. Meet the Patels (2014)
This is low-key brilliant. It's part of an under-utilized genre, the Romance-Documentary. Ravi Patel breaks up with his girlfriend. A bit lost and looking to move forward with his life, he works with his parents to have them set him up with someone to marry. Directed by Ravi and his sister Geeta, it's a film with many different interesting and compelling aspects. There's the insider perspective of Indian culture surrounding marriage, coming off less clinical and more matter-of-fact without judgment. There's the parents-children dynamics. There's the brother-sister dynamics. You get to watch an immature doofus boy grow to become a slightly less immature doofus boy. And of course, there's a really sweet love story. Hilarious at times, often sweet, and always authentic. Very much recommended - available on Amazon Prime.

7. Seven Servants (1996)

Image

In his final starring role, Anthony Quinn is solid here as the quirky elderly protagonist, waxing poetic about the human bonding that facial orifice-sharing brings, and there are some simply uncanny moments as him and his servants move about as one entity - even scaring off armed robbers at one point. His "experiment" leaves open some unanswered questions, but this is an enjoyably offbeat look at an eccentric man realising an unconventional romantic fantasy; sort of like The Human Centipede crossed with a 70s or 80s Cronenberg movie - except totally devoid of horror and with a homoerotic subtext.

10. Kiltro (2006, Ernesto Díaz Espinosa - Chile) in 0 official lists
Chilean martial arts film, not sure if utter shit or simply genius. The story is set in a Santiago neighborhood known for their communities of Arabs and Koreans. The protagonist is of arab origin and the context and the connection to martial arts comes from the korean part. The romance is between our hero and the daughter of the Korean master who owns a school. He is obssessed with this girl and his idiotic attitude towards her and her environment is the best part of the film. An old rival of the Korean master resurfaces and then you can understand all the background of the characters that justifies the coming fights. 6/10

This film is a tad creepy at first, reminiscent of Bill Murray's attempts to establish a perfect date in Groundhog Day, however, Domhnall Gleeson is very earnest and charming in the lead role, and the film mostly limits his deceptions to fixing up faux pas situations rather than downright manipulation. As Gleeson's past alterations sometimes impact on his present, the film also brings Click and Eternal Sunshine to mind. As a time travel story, the film does not quite stack up with very flaky internal logic, but as a quirky romance and strained father/son relationship movie, the film hits all the right notes.

I love my wifeShow
1. Meet the Patels (2014)
2. Explorers (1985)
Tagged as Romance on IMDB. Weird seeing Ethan Hawke and River Phoenix so young. Unfinished, so the last third was... odd.

3. Saturday Night and Sunday Morning (1960, Karel Reisz)
A good enough film, I just didn't connect with it.

4. Bedtime Stories (2008)
This was better than I thought it would be - I don't mind Adam Sandler and like Keri Russell, and the kids weren't the focus of the storytelling, so it kinda worked. Fantasy elements weren't too fantastical either.

5. About a Boy (2002)
Rewatch - I LOVE this film. It just hits me in all the right places and makes me happy, all while making me laugh out loud. The whole bit with Mystikal I've probably been quoting randomly for 10-15 years.
