  4:49pm Brendan:

Pluto TV is ok
  4:49pm Brendan:

Once in a while
  4:50pm Jeremy:

Cinephobe.tv is great! Last night they showed Coming Apart. I’ve also seen Greaser’s Palace and The Hourglass Sanitorium. And I like the scheduled aspect, it’s interesting going back to not-on- demand.
  4:50pm Miss G:

Wong Kar-wai, I was thinking "In the Mood for Love." So beautiful visually.
  4:57pm brainiac:

This Bryce person sounds interesting.
  4:58pm Jeremy:

Dammit now I’ve got the funk too!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:59pm Itzall Hear:

Miss G, that's the same film that came to mind for me too. Now I want to watch it again, it really is a beautiful work of art.
  5:00pm WM:

@Jeremy: I've been trying to catch up again with Hourglass Sanatorium for a long time. I did manage to see it once on line but then it disappeared. I'd love to see it again and anything else by Wojciech Jerzy Has.
  5:03pm Jeremy:

WM it’s a fantastic film, never seen the others.
Avatar 5:04pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

digging the highly BENT vibe of this set.
...or perhaps I'm having a massive stroke.
Either way, I'll take it.
  5:05pm David in London:

Has’ film version of The Saragossa Manuscript is amazing too.
  5:07pm Brendan:

Sounds like it’s going to break into the opening of magic carpet ride
  5:11pm WM:

@David in London & Jeremy: Yes, I've seen Saragossa Manuscript too. It's another film I'd love to see again. I recently got a copy of the original novel by Jan Potocki. Also I want to read the novel by Bruno Schulz that is the basis for HS.
Avatar 5:16pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

I actually thought Bryce had done a pandemic-topical piece, saying I'VE GOT THE BUG.

Got concerned there for a minute.
