    Cool! Most ppl I talk to haven't even heard about it. I really like Tim Burton's scenography. (Did you like it too?)
    I'm afraid I never got around to watch Ma Vie en Rose, but at least I've heard about it .

    Edited: the movie was titled "My Life in Pink" in US

    Yay! Just watched Memento. Great movie! I'm going to watch it again and organize my thoughts.

    Yes, Memento was very, very strange. Reminds me that I need to get it on DVD.

    A very unique movie, and you never really know if the guy is good or bad. Of course I assume that Teddy was bad just on references learned from Joe Pantoliano's role on the Sopranos.

    Completely off-topic, but further adding to the strangeness for me, it was the last movie my ex-wife and I saw together in a theatre...funny how life changes so quickly.

    Fargo is another fave on my all-time list. And definitely quirky and offbeat.

    "Oh, yah?"

    Fargo just cracks me up, I can't believe I forget to mention it until now.

    My favorite part is when Marge is interviewing the prostitutes. If you think of the accents, it still makes me smile now:

    Hooker: Well, the little guy was kinda funny-lookin'.
    Marge Gunderson: In what way?
    Hooker: I dunno, just funny-lookin'.
    Marge Gunderson: Can ya be any more specific?
    Hooker: I couldn't really say. He wasn't circumcised.
    Marge Gunderson: Was he funny-lookin' apart from that?
    Hooker: Oh, he was just funny-lookin'. More than most people, even.

    Come ON people! Does Rocky Horror Count as offbeat enough? (Stupid question, I know... I'm on a RHPS high at the moment, though so come up to the lab and see what's on the slab!)
