It's brilliant! It and Requiem for a Dream are absolutely required viewing. Any DVD player which has not played these movies has had a meaningless existence.

I liked all of those movies. Requiem was pretty dark, and I enjoyed the 'math and madness' angle of Pi.. Run Lola Run was a fun little movie.

Same here.

I bought the soundtrack to 'Requiem for a Dream' and even it manages to bring back all the sick feelings the movie gave me.

DON'T rent something called "Premonition". My wife found it on the new release wall at Blockbuster. It looked good. It was from Lions Gate Films. The premise is that this guy stops to use the payphone, and while in the phone booth he sees a copy of the newspaper. It catches his eye because it's got a photo of his daughter on it. The accompanying article mentions that an 8-yr old girl died in a tragic car accident. At that point the guy looks at the date of the paper & it's dated for tomorrow. The next moment, a trucker (who has fallen asleep behind the wheel) crushes the guys car with his daughter in it (who then dies) & this starts a cycle where the guy keeps finding advance copies of the paper & then tries to prevent the upcoming tragedies. Sounds ok, right?

Well, here's the rest of it: the movie is Japanese. Everything is subtitled. The acting is poor-at-best & the story just falls apart after the beginning. The movie gets confusing & then gets jumpy. For some reason the guy starts to develop a rash. About the halfway part, you'll be searching for sharp objects around your house. It becomes laughably bad.

The day after watching the movie, my wife went grocery shopping. While gone, I took a picture of myself (from the family portrait hanging about the fireplace), and cropped it into a webpage downloaded from www.japantimes.jp.co. I changed the date on the page & subtitled underneath the picture (in bold): "Wife rents crappy movie, beloved devoted husband dies of boredom". I then printed it, left it out for my wife & then went to bed. She actually woke me up to tell me "You are such a dork" (which I'll take as a compliment, thank you). Of course I haven't let it rest. When she came home from shopping at target that weekend, I pulled one of the plastic shopping bags over my head, clamped it shut around my neck and asked "can I throw this away or are you going to rent Premonition II?"
