Let's revisit that films of joy post. Like I said, I don't watch a lot of film, which means that I'm likely missing out on many things that I would like if I knew about them. So if you start with Charlie Kaufman, Miyazaki, Svenkmajer, the Marx Brothers, Jeunet and Caro (the five primary sources of joy in my original list), then add in Terry Gilliam (yes, every film including Baron Munchausen) and quirky cult films like Harold and Maude or Being There, plus obvious geek pleasers like LotR and CTHD...where do you, oh great video store master, send me next? Help me, Lazyweb!

This is a funny meme for me, because I rarely consume film. However, I know what I like, and it's this. Since we are restricted to 5, I'm not doubling up on any director/producer/actors, but you can assume an obsessive, completist(*) fondness for films related to these:

1. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
2. Spirited Away
3. The Lion in Winter
4. A Night at the Opera
5. City of Lost Children

EDITED: Sorry Jan, but Peter O'Toole and Katherine Hepburn trump. Conspirators of Pleasure replaced in the three spot.

* and really, with me, could it be any other way?

So, the MPAA has put out a press release blaming BitTorrent for the release of Episode III on the net. Today, we also read that EIII obliterated the five day box office record...on it's fourth day of release.

Perhaps that will kill the "peer to peer networks and file sharing destroy profit" argument?

Yeah, right.
