I generally like film realism and the French New Wave, but I thought Godard’s Breathless was awful. I got absolutely nothing out of it.

Same. However, I rather expect old comedies to be rather lackluster as a rule, since comedy as a genre fares poorly with distance in either time or place. The reason I have come up with is that since jokes are generally more funny the more situational and specific they are, the less impact they have over time as the nuance of the situations has gradually been lost.

You probably don’t recognize me because of the red arm.

Actually 12 Angry Men is very questionable, as it has one juror manipulating the other eleven jurors into ruling in favour of the defendant.

There should be a thread for great films that make no sense. Because i don’t hate them but find them confusing. Like No Country for Old Men. I watched it again, and it is fantastic in editing, acting, directing and execution, but i don’t get it thematically i’m lost.

Manipulating is different from persuading.

I found Napoleon Dynamite very underwhelming when I watched it.
