"Identify this film I barely remember!" thread italodisco 03/13/2022 (Sun) 21:58:51 No.2381 [Reply]
Figured it would be good for others, I've been scratching my brain for hours (unhealthy?) trying to remember where the he'll I saw this scene: A man wearing a hat steps outside to smoke a cigarette, when a phantasmagorical hand appears from thin air and seems to bother his psyche... The weirdest thing about this is that it felt like a silent film, but the elements like the man and his hat felt very noir-ish... And this might be the years of substance abuse catching up to me but I even remember the scene being purple tinted and the floating hand yellow tinted... Or was it the other way round! Am I losing it!

>>2429 >I recall you mentioning that i think, along with the music video special that you got angry because they started chopping and summarizing them rather than keeping them integral. That music video one was Techetechete, I've looked through every torrent tracker including Italian ones and no one seems to be saving these. I managed to rip about 20-30 episodes from 2021. The only downside is that, like you remembered, I think they realized they were releasing way too much so they doubled down on censoring them with cuts and bigger watermarks. Some of the pre-2019 episodes had amazing footage, most of it I haven't even been able to trace back to a source, like this one of George McCrae singing next to Gianni Morandi, Morandi was at the height of his popularity in Italy while being extremely young, and somehow managed to sell out Madison Square Garden that same year, which is the tour from which the footage comes from. I really hope to find some kind of documentary they made there but, so far, nothing. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5J0Cz1xoWxM I just found another music video (there are quite a few) of Rock Your Baby where George is wearing the exact same shirt... I want to know more https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IJHyyHn1HME
>>2471 Same outfit keeps popping up, looks like they either shot a music video for it on the same day, I have a feeling they might've done a Roots Rock Reggae type docu showing different artists around NY, or an actual musical with McCrae on the lead like Figlio delle Stelle maybe I'm just daydreaming https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P08cLiLOmto https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8T2kE2w2hVU
>>2471 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fup4FfZaEBI Pretty sure this is part of the same docu, interesting how its Morandi doing the narration. I'll have to look through his IMDb, could be an episodic thing

There was a documentary about American expansion of the suburbs and the cancer of the highway system running through America narrated by a "somewhat mousy"-sounding woman in her 50s. Never wrote down the name of it.
>>2531 That doesn't really tell you squat. I think it was 50 to 110 minutes long, it briefly covered how some woman campaigned and prevented a highway cutting through Brooklyn and discussed how the upper-middle class think that the suburbs are nature. It's fairly obscure but I'd appreciate someone posting it to the documentary thread.

>>2512 Ming Green was the only thing I've seen. I couldn't get into it. I like the style of superimposition and modulating exposure, but with more movement. Same with Werner Nekes - Hynningen. There was not enough happening (perhaps too low quality) for me to enjoy it. I'll check Joseph Bernard though. I haven't seen anything from him.

Films that revolve around a protagonist in a dead end life serve as a cautionary tale to viewers Anonymous 03/04/2022 (Fri) 20:39:48 No.2364 [Reply]
Hey all, what are some films similar to these two?
Woah, Caden was not in a dead end life, Caden had every chance in that movie to make things work, twice, if not thrice. He had two daughters and still abandoned both, he had two potential partners and still rejected them. It's only after they both leave him that he regrets letting them go. The entire point of the movie is that outlook and decisions change things, you're not stuck in a dead end unless you think you are. It's almost antithetical to the genre you want.
>>2365 Are you forgetting about his (Caden's) mental illness(es)? Check this out: >Repetition compulsion is a psychological phenomenon in which a person repeats an event or its circumstances over and over again. This includes re-enacting the event or putting oneself in situations where the event is likely to happen again. This "re-living" can also take the form of dreams in which memories and feelings of what happened are repeated, and even hallucinated. >Repetition compulsion can also be used to cover the repetition of behaviour or life patterns more broadly: a "key component in Freud's understanding of mental life, 'repetition compulsion' ... describes the pattern whereby people endlessly repeat patterns of behaviour which were difficult or distressing in earlier life". https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Repetition_compulsion
Motivational Growth - but it goes the "gf solves life crisis" route which ruins the movie. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ToRhJWIBZrE

I want to read the stuff i said i would but i keep procrastinating and finding myself with jobby jobs to subsist. Still here's some old stills, might've posted them already in the old place but might as well, lost the habit of screencaping. Establishing shot of a french city amidst "resistance", set in 1944 "Outroduction" shot of a man whose normal life "ended" in the Salton sea, set in late 90's/early 00's Introduction shot of an unexplained side character in small town Japan, set in early 00's Freedom/Victory pose shot of protagonist/antagonist in big city Japan, set in late 90's/early 00's
"Artsy" read: narratively unjustified, out of nowhere, random, aesthetic study only, don't know how to call it shot of a drunk inconspicuous tourist in a latin american country, set in mid-00's 2 examples of negotiating characters against a man framed in visual composition to represent what feels to be the wild, the land, a place or a region; latter one even has him dress in national colours. Set in late 80's. Last one is clearly a joke, i said a joke, to parody certain collages made to enlarge certain movies' visual compositions, some done in cherrypicked and bad faith ways to win brownie points in social media due to their famous titles meaning something for some people despite disregarding main art direction or narrative devices used by said movies themselves. In this case an american mainstream comedy movie presented to make it look like a high-budget bitter love story amidst an action-packed context which isn't far off to be fair compared to the actual movie

>>1913 I agree on Punishment, so I dont mind if Edvard gets it either since thats also very well done but I need to watch it again to make sure. I have been going through the list and am on Manuel by Raul and so far Ive liked pretty much all of them, I couldnt watch Taigo, Revelateur or The Falls but thats it, so far Satantango and Werkmeister have stuck with me, even if I did not care for his particular thoughts in the latter. Eros was also really good but City of Pirates takes the cake. I have never seen such an effortless film. It just flows between sets and time stands still until its over.
god, i haven't posted since the 8ch days either >>1872 i second something from SEL. i've watched a few from SEL. Sweetgrass, People's Park, Leviathan, Yumen, Manakamana, Single Stream, The Iron Ministry, Caniba. Really interested in the earlier ernst karel stuff, and also i heard they are working on a new film which has something to do with hospitals? not sure if it's out I recommend Leviathan out of the ones I've watched. It's the most well known but also i think the best

Zoltan Fabri's Merry-Go-Round is a fine film but The Fifth Seal is objectively better. It's basically the difference between an 8/10 vs. the elusive 9/10. What was the justification for this choice? I suppose there are no wrong choices since favorites are entirely arbitrary, but I'm curious nonetheless.
>>2440 The Fifth Seal is a world cinema classic and deserves to be added. We could double up on other directors as well. There's ample room left. I was thinking Peter Greenaway - The Falls is a little different from most of his films so we could include one that represents his typical style.

Joanna Shimkus in The Last Adventure (1967) I know her from a few French films. She was born in Nova Scotia to an Irish Catholic mother and Lithuanian Jew father. >>2490 Wow, I'd never seen that
>>2492 Yes, Shimkus (or Shikmus i thought) was pretty good decent looking in that movie/era. IRL she was a massive coal burner french jew lol so she got much fewer cameras on her by gentlemen magazines and soft-handed auteurs.
>>2518 She dated more black guys than Sidney Poitier? He seems like a nice enough sort but it's a shame her kids don't look like her.
Open file (10.16 KB 480x360 hqdefault.jpg)
>>2519 She was based on Marseille and the french always rumor that scene (in which she had a good part as one of the token pixie hippie girl, also supposedly Belmondo) being degeneration town with the swinging and the migrants, some movies explore this kinda scene about banging dirty people on the street, Emmanuelle i think shows this in either the first or second movie, there's also the Black Emmanuelle and Emmanuelle goes to Africa stuff so yeah. Kinda how the Paris scene was degenerated with politicians and ambassadors/royalty, for example Alain Delon was supposedly a playmaker there and rumor says stuff was filmed at times to blackmail or have dirt on people. He had some controversy regarding that, it didn't fully leave him because one of his bodyguards/security dudes got butchered and thrown in a garbage bin so stuff got serious in the media. There's also the whole can of worms regarding the Trudeau's stuff in their town and when they travelled to Paris. It's >the french, what could we expect? shame because their girls always have that exquisite innocent touch yet are complete maniacs, kinda how the slav girls always look punkish and aggressive but were supposedly prudes and passives.

>>2474 Yes, same with East Asia (Hong Kong) but also Eastern Europe (Yugoslavia) and my own country. It is a tricky thing because you feel near like an otaku or something being focused on a specific scene but it is enjoyable, you learn their some of their little details and recurring themes, changing scenes very often (as is watching a movie from x place then y then z then b then a then c...) will end up with one using a general standard, that is the best movie you watched in that run instead of the context. Some places are just pure guilty pleasure and consuming them is akin to eating fries and grape soda everyday, it's not healthy but who can stop you? at least you can see other stuff with different eyes at times. >>2475 Should be easy but not often done because directors always have a particular work or two that aren't worth it or merely not interesting compared to their other works. In my case i reserve some stuff for latter days, Kurosawa i reserved myself his colour works but 15+ of his B&W i have seen. By accident i remember seeing, i think, all of Paul Verhoeven and Jim Abrahams + Zucker Brothers works, some others i am shy two or three movies like JP Melville or Sergio Leone, KW Wong is another and now that i remember Chan-Gook Park. Usually most people will be shy a few works due to that certain thematic oddity.
>>2475 I have seen all films directed by Charles Laughton and Ester Krumbachova. I've seen all of Orson Welles' major works besides Macbeth and Chimes at Midnight. Since he has so many unfinished projects and assorted TV episodes there's still plenty for me to watch.

Has Trinh T. Minh-ha made anything worth watching... or is she a mediocrity elevated by the progressive stack? Reassemblage is not an essential short and it's sloppily "assembled" to boot. I see a lot of people gushing over her work as if it unlocks some profound truth. Trinh has a 3000 word wikipedia page, over three times longer than legitimately interesting directors like Ulrike Ottinger and Kidlat Tahimik.

The first part of this video outlines some of the new applications of "AI" in video production For example, LED backdrops replace greenscreen to improve natural lighting. (This of course reveals that AI itself cannot convincingly reproduce natural lighting.) Some of the other uses have an uncanny valley feel to me. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ixgFtjfO_7Q https://inv.riverside.rocks/watch?v=ixgFtjfO_7Q

A thread for Nordic cinema. Woke shit not welcome.
The modern Scandinavian countries are the worst liberal shithole ever, so I avoid most of their new stuff. I like the scenery and atmosphere of the place, which could be a great setting or background for films. Could you recommend some brooding, atmospheric films from this region? On a not very related note, does anyone find viking stuff in current pop culture so fucking gay? Everything about vikings from Hollywood and their allies, even a fucking Japanese comic (Vinland Saga) also features a tranny character in the Middle Ages. Is it because they're trying to feminize masculine characters into emotionally driven, bumbling idiots who submit at the will of women? On the other hand, I'm watching the Raven trilogy by Hrafn Gunnlaugsson and really enjoy them. Classic "Spaghetti Western" in Iceland and with Vikings. I've completed the first one, When the Raven Flies, which is said to be based on Yojimbo. There's something charming about the type of hero that sets a goal and follow it with determination and competence (at first). It's fun to follow them on their journey and look for their next success, or failure. The music imitates western films but is played on synthesizer, sounds hilarious but also... charming. I guess I like western as a genre and reinventing it in an exotic setting is very enjoyable.
In the Shadow of the Raven (1988), second movie of the Raven trilogy.

>>1729 >does anyone find viking stuff in current pop culture so fucking gay? Yes. It's token and watered-down "right-wing/trad" media to give white men a bone to chew on and idolize (and get income off of), and has been pop-cultured, subverted, appropriated, and marginalized to death only 2nd to Hawaiian culture to where I wonder if non-Nordic understanding of it is as good as theirs. >Is it because they're trying to feminize masculine characters into emotionally driven, bumbling idiots I can attest it is so for Vinland Saga as the preface message in the early volumes by the mangaka stated that he is a cowardly man who wonders why he'd make such a comic, that men are stupid for wasting their mother's love to die on a battlefield, and generally the sickeningly preachy shoehorned ideal that post-war Japanese have to stride towards peace and liberalism.

Six awarded short films taking a fresh look at the most common stereotypes about Russia: Cold weather, Women, Vodka, Lada cars, Bears and the “Russian soul”… There’s always more to stereotypes than one may think. >Cinetrain is a documentary filmmaking experience. It’s a working method that is inspired by the work of Alexander Medvedkin and his Cinetrain in 1930’s Soviet Russia. For this project, in January 2013, a group of 21 filmmakers from 14 countries met for the first time in Moscow. On the next day they were sent on a trip to make films that would explore widespread stereotypes about Russia. Over the following month, they shot and edited the 6 short films that compose this almanach. They traveled 10 000 km by train to engage in a dialog with the Russian people and to understand the ideas the Russians have about themselves. Same style as the Norilsk documentary. Russia is such an extreme, yet beautiful and misunderstood place.
