Film: Tideland and Irreversible

Must-see films--macabre, disturbing and intermittently gorgeous. Filmmaker David Cronenberg described Tideland as "poetic horror", which personally speaking, sounds like my ideal genre. And as I was watching Irreversible last night with two friends of mine who are dating, we couldn't help but laugh at what a perfect "date movie" it was--if you are into the whole 9 minute long rape scene type thing...But as Beethoven's 7th symphony plays in the final scene, as the entire picture spins into chaos and then clarity, there is startling beauty and triumphant power. Yep, see em both.
