Choices

A representation of my cinematic maturity

I have four Netflix at my house:

Stalker
This science fiction milestone from directory Andrei Tarkovsky takes you into the SZone, a mysterious guarded realm containng a mystical room in which occupants' secret dreams come true. Stalker, a man able to lead others to this holy grail, escorts a writer and a scientist through this foreboding territory and confronts several unexpected challenges along the way. Bassed on the Russian sci-fi novel Roadside Picnic.
Rated NR 2 hrs. 43 min. 1979

Baise Moi
Please note that this film contains explicit sex scene and scenes of intense graphic violence, which some viewers may find shocking and disturbing. This film is not recommended for viewers under the age of 18. Manu, a hardened young waif is violently raped by a group of savage young thugs. Nadine, a tough-skinned prostitute, sells her body but refuses to give up her soul to the world's oldest profession. Sex plays a pivotal and often destructive role in both their lives. Angry at the world, they embark on a twisted rage-filled road trip. Their bloodlust leaves a trail of dead bodies and mischief behind them. They become deadly harbingers of death and destruction. Anyone who has the misfortune of crossing their path, is suddenly a potential victim.
Rated UR 1 hr. 17 min. 2000

L'Age D'Or
Iconoclastic direction Luis Bunuel trumpets his trademark critiques of relgion and bourgeoisie society ini this surrealistic, 1930 film -- which retains the power to shock its audience. As a nameless man and woman (portrayed by Gaston Modot and Lya Lys, respectively) attempt to consummate their sexual desire, the forces of righteousness continually thwart their passion. Artist Salvador Dali penned the provocative script.
Rated NR 1 hr. 1930

My Name Is Nobody
Spaghetti Western regular Terence Hill stars as Nobody, a man who's been chosen to take out established bandit Jack Beauregard (Henry Fonda) but who strikes up a friendship with the seasoned outlaw instead. After Beauregard decides to retire, his new buddy Nobody suggest that he go down in one last blaze of glory, and does his best to have him face off against the dodgy Wild Bunch. Will the aging gunfighter change his mind?
Rated PG 1 hr. 51 min. 1974

With these illustrious choices, what do we decide to watch?

A VHS bootleg of Next Friday.

I really need to have less ambitious movies in my queue and have at least one or two retard movies available at all times (ps I usually only get 3 movies at a time but due to some glitch they sent me 4.)

I guess it's time for Soul Plane and Spies Like Us to make their way to the top of my Queue.
