I find odd how extremely crucial or enduringly influential craftsmen die and get ignored by tons of media, perpetuating the myth you need a PR ace under your pay to have your name do the rounds often on mainstream (or any) media. Just Jaeckin was an artist specialized on sculpture and photography, with formal education in architecture with an interior design focus, who at some point and somehow in his early 30's had the chance to direct a decently-budgeted feature film, Emmanuelle, in 1974. His early life was, according to official sources, a dude who left suddenly his parents to explore northern lands, live like a bohemian, photograph some stuff, return and for some reason join the military, travel some more, study college thanks to army bonds and with the money gotten by doing artsy stuff do a movie heavily focused on the erotic/banging sculptural chicks in cool, photogenic sets. If you had to wonder what place was this lad from, you would quickly think such a human specimen would be french because only them can be this picturesque in both the good and the really bad way... and you would be right. The influence Emmanuelle had in cinema cannot be underestimated easily as in a mere softcore flick, despite not being that good it had a tremendous influence by practically founding the genre of late-night softcore film, plenty of trademarks started here with his influence from portrait photography (diffuse lighting, backlit subjects, sepia, heavy posing) performed great by pretty good cinematographer Robert Fraisse, this influence extended in actions showcased after classic frenchfag shenanigans (banging in second-floor old town room with open windows, wine, eating seafood before banging, sucking ice cubes before slurping people, wine, kissing everything except face, exotic music in background, drinking wine from breasts, foot antics, infidelity, being a degenerate under the influence of stinking wine). Despite not getting that much money from the immense success Emmanuelle had (including 32 sequels and/or related works using the character or something very similar to it) he went on to direct other stuff, he was offered the helms of the series but recommended a friend and carried with other stuff. Why did he do this i don't know for sure but it certainly needed a good amount of balls because he damn well knew the success, anyways he did a couple of more softcore stuff, which did not fare well, and that wasn't the exception in terms of theatrical with the 1981's release of a Lady Chatterley's Lover version, which did otherwise massively in the home market section which later became a staple in late-nite television peeping saw that one around 2004 or 2005 on TV, always looking at the door to avoid getting caught this one also starred the original Emmanuelle's protagonist, venerable and interesting character Sylvia Kristel, the pack-a-day smoker bag-a-day snorter sophisticated lounge girl (who was probably a groomed girl in the euro elite circles) who was also known for being extremely badly advised by doopy-headed friends due to rejection or ignoring several big projects and decisions due to them being high all the time and giving as higher rules of action for her sadly-not-as-high career. The man himself made another film and a couple of TV episodes later, not as successful, and after getting hyped and getting his ideas crushed by nosey producers he decided to call it quits and use the money he had made (not as much as one would think despite his gold-printing products) to do art, sell it and just live relatively calm with his cutesy wife somewhere in i guess France; despite this it seems he decided to film some small-scale stuff once in a while, mostly commercial stuff like adverts, one for Seiko which gained some recognition later on. As a sidenote it seems the japs loved the guy and his stuff, i mean most did but they were more open about it letting him direct stuff not related to porn or chicks; also some say (tabloid headers) he photobanged both Marika Green and Marlene Jobert which is very commendable and i feel envious about it until i realize i had to be french to do that So this dude called it quits from everything some days ago, leaving a seemingly forgotten legacy by most other than that sharp eyed fellow who interviewed him extensively a year ago out of nowhere, kudos to him and shame there's no subtitles. For us non-frog tonguers we will be left with his pictures of girls and flawed but certainly very charming film adaptations of adulterous roasties being eternally inquired by horny rich dudes bordering the cuckoldry line, something most recently von Trier successfully (and unnervingly) mimicked in his 4-hour degenerate journey called Nymphomaniac. For us still living all we can do to serve this frenchman's memory is to remember, if vaguely, his name and what he did which is something few do in these genres' realms where everyone are, including me, just jaeckin off :^)
>>2724 I never realized his filmography was so brief. I don't think I've actually seen one of his films though. I watched a few Italian Emanuelles but none of the French.

Godard died and i feel i should write something about him, but i can't remember when i last enjoyed something made by him. So i won't. I do commend him on having good taste in women and probably having the skill to wrap them up via personality rather than shady tricks, but who knows because he was jewish and rich enough to masquerade in/as the elite like his uncles and father did. He did great work in the editing room but no product of his made me feel they were employed in fulfilling ways, i do wonder sometimes how he got his name in the first place or if i am too far ahead in time to appreciate his supposed pioneering work, or if the famed communist press in France helped build his fame later on in the 70's when most cinema scenes were aligned with the red wave. Seems the french are doing charity and have been scheduling their own assisted deaths themselves, J.L. being one and supposedly Alain Delon being the upcoming feature. That one will certainly wreck many hearts in old ladies but also french new wave viewers who watch actually enjoyable movies. >>2732 There's also some american ones but the euro versions have that artsy but really depraved vibe to them that makes them shocking but also arousing to women. Americans are just jovial about relations and do it "for fun" according to what the movies show, the euro ones explore it as secrets or adventures while often too as "fever dreams" so it adds an atmosphere of spontaneity, danger and downright body integrity degeneration. The ones set in travels through Africa are a prime example as they show people with very primal behavior, and you can guess what C.K.-tier antics appear at times. The ritualistic and dark nature of some of those scenes do show a glimpse of how the sex tourists and high-ranking swinger/elite parties work or at least look like, the montage/editing/mise en scene are also quite above-average at least for porn.
>>2738 Yes, when I familiarized myself with the full spectrum of European cinema, I was confused why the mediocre midwit Godard held status as a classic entry point. There are so many more interesting directors but somehow his films are the first that people watch. Even my film school friends were introduced to Breathless which they treated like a stroke of genius.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z1k98QjeK0s I used to be a pretty big film buff but slowly ruined my ability to enjoy anything that was 'just good' by being insanely picky in what I would finish. If I were ever in a situation where I was with a girl and she wanted to watch a movie in bed I reckon I'd bottle it by shitting on the movie. How do you overcome disillusion?

Gunslinger Girl and that one movie with Natalie Portman are the two that I remember off the top of my head, but what was the first? And to add to that, I guess there's also the "street urchin child gets put under the wing of a master criminal". For instance, in the earlier Total War games, your spy/assassin could get a child pickpocket ancillary.

Thanks, I hate it. Anonymous 01/20/2021 (Wed) 18:33:10 No.1288 [Reply]
>Periodically attack the infinite backlog >Consult the spirits >They shit in my mouth For some reason, this was in the back of my mind as a highly rated movie to watch at some point. I read no review, no synopses, save maybe hearing it praised in passing some time around it's release. I got up to the part where the venal harlot begins openly cucking the soy-boy puppet man with his hippie retard pseudo-tranny gf and turned it off, because after being suckered in by the quirky aesthetic and the neat scene dressing like the tiny office, I found all the characters intensely detestable. Not even in a way that was pleasant to watch. Their personalities excite in me a deep gut-feeling of revulsion and hatred. I'm not qualified to be a puritan, but this is definitively a steaming degenerate Hollywood turd, and it has Jewish names all over it. -1000000/10, I hope every name associated with this production is hunted down and fed feet first into an autoclave. Feel free to regale me with tales of movies that you had the impression were rated highly, but turned out to have emanated from a diseased post-op axe-wound.

>>1431 >>1432 >tfw jews try to make whites detestable, and fail miserably because we're such kind people. yeah, i like Hank too.
>>1431 >King of the Hill is also written in the same way. I don't see it that way other than Hank who is legitimately a shitty person for grilling meat with gas, the rest are also flawed but have redeeming values at the end. The injun is a societal scumbag but one that does support, morally speaking, anyone in his community for nothing in return. The chink/laos monkey is a total asshole of a person but a model citizen in all the technical stuff. Boomhauer is an unintelligible guy who seemingly does nothing all day (until the ending showed his true profession) but is level-headed and pro-active in the betterment of society with small actions. Granpa is also a shit dude, bordering the psychopath label, but one who risked his neck to help the country in need (for ZOG but he didn't knew that) It's a balance and most characters were written that way, whoever thinks they were written to be hated are simply shallow.
>>1431 >king of the hill >It's one of those "avant garde" 90s pieces where you're supposed to hate the characters, and enjoy hating them. I'm not sure, I see what you mean but I did not even grow up with this crap and I didn't really hate the characters kind of like a milder more boring version B&B, I didn't hate the characters there either, they're genuinely funny. It's just shallow eccentric ridicule humor for kicks, with a touch of what you said, but still it's broadly way more innocent than say family goy or american dad or simp-sons or other sewer trash the kikes pump out these days.
>>1288 yeah i dropped the movie really fast, it sucked so much I dont even know what it was about.

Az ember tragédiája/The Tragedy of Man is a fantastic film that I've never seen discussed. It's based on the 1861 play of the same name – regarded as one of the greatest works of Hungarian literature – and follows Adam, guided by Lucifer, as he journeys through history, from humanity's inception in the Garden of Eden till its wretched end. Although the film began production in 1988, it wasn't released until 2011. After the collapse of Hungary's communist government, director Marcell Jankovics had to finance each of the film's fifteen segments individually, some of which were screened at film festivals or on Hungarian TV over the years. In fact, the end product had to be re-dubbed since the original voice actors were too old by the time the animation was complete. Jankovics actually believed that the play was better suited to the animation medium rather than the stage, which I agree with. Animation really unfetters the story and leaves it free to express itself on a grander scale, with each historical period being represented by the artstyle of the time. For example, the segment that takes place in Ancient Greece takes the form of engraved pottery, whereas the far future segment is all bold lines and part-monochrome to reflect the sterile and mechanical world. My personal favourite is the cross-hatched style in the Prague scene – aesthetics aside, it also visually represents the restricted thinking of the era, in contrast to the clean, fluid animation of the following French Revolution, reverting back to cross-hatching when said revolution fails. The film begins with the creation of the universe and the Fall of Man soon after. Having been cast out of Paradise, a prideful Adam is determined to pursue personal glory. In response, Lucifer whisks him away to Ancient Egypt – where Adam the pharaoh, having built a magnificent pyramid, has realised his desires at the cost of countless slave lives. He then reasons that equality between men is the true road to happiness, and is transported to a democratic Greece in chaos. The rest of the film follows this formula, with each of Adam's dreams being exposed as futile, and Adam himself growing older and wearier with each ensuing cycle. Eve also appears in each cycle of Adam's journey, providing him with the hope to strive on for a better outcome. In this way, she is ultimately his downfall. The ending is what really sets "Az ember tragédiája" apart, IMO. God is unfathomable, his intentions impossible to comprehend. Whether he truly has an unknowable plan for mankind, or is simply a callous creator, is left up to the viewer. >Man, I have spoken: Struggle and have faith! <The end is death; life is a struggle. And man's end is the struggle itself. And so, Adam resigns humanity to pushing the boulder up the hill until the last man's cold, miserable death. Overall, I think it's a beautiful film and I'm thankful to have seen it. Apparently the director felt the same way as he was in his 70s by the time his movie was finally released, lol. I highly recommend you check this one out.
>>1687 I love it and became very interested in the original play after watching the epic animated film. There are a couple live-action adaptations too but It's hard to imagine anything surpassing the effort by Marcell Jankovics.
>>1673 I vaguely remember watching a Russian movie about Orthodox monks being held hostage by the Mongols. I think it was called 'the Horde' or something.

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.

I don't know if she can be considered a beautiful woman but younger, I had a serious crush on Emmanuelle Devos in the 2004 Desplechin's movie Kings and Queen. I think more because of the psychological traits of the character (2nd pic is a movie shot). Even older, I still find her very beautiful. Look at that grace in her look...

Watched original The Manchurian Candidate. Loved the visuals they weren't over the top and were dynamic enough. Surprised at how much depth the main character had. I feel the script is very focused and there is very little bloat. Overall I loved it, only issues I had was with Sinatras character and some of the decisions by the government pulled me out of the experience.
It was American Psycho but this was the 20th time I watched it.
Law Abiding Citizen I enjoyed the concept a lot more than the execution.
>>2696 I felt the same. Would of been much improved if it took a hard anti-establishment tone and made Gerard Butler the unquestioned hero, i.e. Death Wish.
Il mulino del Po AKA The Mill on the Po (1949) A bit of a hidden gem here -- underrated on imdb with Carlo Ponti producing a Fellini screenplay, photographed by Aldo Tonti. Factional disputes arise in a farming community along Italy's greatest river, pitting the local land baron against his peasant workers, labor organizers against individualist entrepreneurs, the king's tax collectors against a tax-dodging business, and two families of a prospective marriage. Most of these factions get a realistic rendering from Fellini, who avoids puerile advocacy for one side or another. Instead he creates characters who posses a mixture of noble intentions and moral failings, with a healthy sprinkling of provincial idiosyncrasies to keep the story entertaining. But as everything builds toward an exciting climax (and hopeful resolution to the community's many divides), the story takes a poorly-motivated divergence to an entirely new conflict, bringing the film to an unsatisfying end.

Building upon >>531 here's a handy twitter account that highlights animated gems from Eastern Europe https://nitter.net/EasternOoC A few months ago the account shared this clip from the 1989 Soviet version of Treasure Island. This film has frequent (rather annoying) live action interludes where actors dressed as pirates tell the young viewers about the benefits of things like physical fitness and moral behavior. They have a well-meaning message, especially compared to current children's programming made by the Cold War victors, but as usual the Soviet propaganda has no subtlety. It's heavy-handed and out-of-place for the Treasure Island story.
