Post Film Club Round Three??
The second film club discussion of Wake in Fright was solid, however participation was a little weak.

Regardless, I still wanted to pose the question: Anybody interested in a third round? If so, what film? We had discussed Holy Motors in the past, but other suggestions can definitely be made considering Holy Motors may not be readily available yet.

I didn't participate in the last one because I couldn't find Wake in Fright anywhere. I don't have Netflix, and I couldn't find it to rent or download. But I'll definitely be on board for another one.

We haven't really had a specific Holy Motors thread yet, and a lot of people have seen it by now. It's certainly a film that's worth discussing. Though I think a number of digital download/streaming sources have censored the film in the US, so it's probably a good idea that people try and track down the original version if we choose it.

Thief and Beardman, its always good to know that I can count on you guys :D

Beardman, I haven't heard of any censoring going on with Holy Motors here in the states, can you please elaborate on what you've heard??

Here's where I read it. Seems it's only for VOD services like iTunes or Amazon. I know the blu-ray and DVD are definitely uncensored, but I'm not sure about other services.

I feel bad for not contributing much at all to the last Film Club discussion. I watched Wake In Fright a couple weeks before the discussion started, and that might have been a reason as to why I didn't join in as much. My memory of it had already started to fade.

With that said, I definitely want to contribute more to the next Film Club, especially if the selection is Holy Motors. So much to talk about with that one, it would be a great choice. There shouldn't be too much of a problem with availability either.

I'm in. I moved Holy Motors to the top of my Netflix queue because I'm assuming that's the pick. If not, oh well, I want to see it anyway.

Most of you probably have forgotten about the third round of the Film Club--so wheres what I suggest:

I assume everyone is good with Holy Motors, so we will go with that for our next viewing/discussion.

Let's say the discussion will open up next monday April 8th? If this troublesome we can work something else out.

Sounds good. For anyone who hasn't seen Holy Motors yet, it's now available on Netflix Instant.

Remember what they said about a film club Jack...but no, it wasn't forgotten.

I clicked on this thread praying that either it would be Holy Motors or that the choice wes still up for grabs - in which case I could suggest Holy Motors.

I'm in! I have a copy on my fireplace at home and aim to watch it Saturday night.

Didn't get the chance to watch this weekend. Was out on a 30th birthday party Friday night, was too rough Saturday and too tired yesterday.

Will definately get around to it in the next couple of days.

Since a few of you guys haven't watched the film yet I say we push back the discussion to Friday, April 12th.
