>>2777 I apologize for not having replied earlier, i didn't see it on the overboard >With Reygadas and some of his more degenerate inclinations, I can see that He was an atomic bomb in the "getting your movie financed by the government" in Mexico due to the unnaturality of his appearance first hand experience via talking with two producers jaded as fuck who said nepotism got a strong part of it the problem was not so much the act of pulling someone out of your ass, which happens very often in latin american ventures, but because he represented an artistic circuit most associated with deconstructivism (and the mostly-jews who represent it via a certain educational institution) which renders the abstract artistic justification much harder to explain because it uses the meta of it much more than the mere intention. For example financing by the usual suspects might be easier to get if i make a movie about social criticism in its topic but the fact i plan to use the project as a criticism towards the state government in position (opposing the federal government) while also planning to give recycled toilet paper as napkins at work lunch as part of the ecological impact blablablah will grant it a lot more possibilities than someone wanting to do a road movie with a strong script that will also propel tourism in a certain niche area with mostly local businesses. This happens while the same judges give financing to big studios who didn't need any but used that said meta to push it, said meta being first used before in silly ideas to grant a justification that the nephew of the treasurer is the director of the winning entry. In terms of artistic intention that's where the shallow and deep comes, he goes deep in the meta but the acts on screen are somewhat shallow or "trivial". Of course every director has his agenda, it is part of every artist, but there's mostly artistic agendas and then there's mostly social ones; one can say a small message of protest about civil security forces' uselessness while doing a very compact action movie while others can drag on two hours saying something very vane while showing three hobos loving each other under a public park's floodlights. I think one leaves empty after seeing his works, many movies feel like that and that isn't the problem but one learns or particularly enjoys nothing at all after them, at least in a trashy kung fu film you enjoy chinamen kicking each other or learn that they fry with green onions for the flavor, in eastern european stuff you learn about crippling pessimism or enjoy great acting, with Reygadas work i don't even enjoy the lighting which is one of his trademarks, i see better stuff of the same vein in 00's skateboard tapes and their subsequent artsy stoner reels... and they don't have transgressive content for the sake of it like traditional disembodied mexican heads or grannies kissing chicks. >I'm curious to know what types of movies you like That's my suicide pill, i always think and fall into the same ones and i honestly think they all can be trashed yet i have strong opinions about them, in many facets they tailored liking or i saw them very young and use them as standards. Very well, hang me because i might deserve it, i still believe a movie should have a digestible entertainment factor in it because that's the easiest way to make the common someone eat something (food being the message/agenda/the skills and our ego wanting to show how we do something). Will divide them in a) camera, b) story/acting and c) "because", mind you i think they also have flaws or even massive ones and i will name them. Also i like visuals a lot, bit hypocritical from my part while banging on someone's storytelling and narrative intention. They are my "top 10" as of right now and in terms of how i would define my tastes (not the best 10 i've ever seen) tomorrow i might change 3 or even 4 names, next week i might put them back and replace other two, you know how it goes but i think they are a good representation and i still need to watch many essential pieces which i sidetracked to watch other things that might be considered much inferior. a) Tsui Hark's Knock-Off (massive flaws: The Introduction, Protagonist's justification/backstory regarding his abilities, most of the Tritagonist's existence, Deuteragonist being Rod Schneider despite probably doing the best acting of his career) if i may add there's also an extended version seemingly lost which would skew the final act's timing a lot more but features things which would make it more unique than it already is. Certainly the most criticized movie of this list but also the most ignored, not in my case because i still think of it often, has the audacity and fearlessness that i can compare to stuff like Peewee's Big Adventure, as in unorthodox movies that spell death sentences to careers and the ballsy/mentally ill directors who still made them out of their own pleasure/craziness. Script is also a great exercise in overuse of a concept, done by one of the masters of action Stevee De Souza. Kar-Wai Wong's Ashes of Time (flaws: Dependency in knowing the source material to "get" the characters who are Dragon Ball-tier famous in Hong Kong but not anywhere else due to lack of translation, deleted scenes from the first version change the plot a bit and were excluded later for who knows why, bit extended at times to present us with feelings/narration rather than just using the natural discourse aka melodramatic timing, adding to this it does use narration too much which is a problem with Wong's works at times as he doesn't show as much as he should)

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.
Saw The House That Jack Built (2018). It felt like jew propaganda aimed at intj types.

La Haine Someone wanted to watch this with me (very out of character, in hindsight), and I figured I'd finally give La Haine a try. It was very well done, and I wish I could give a good writeup on it for you guys, but my experience watching it was overwhelmed by one thing: Fuck the french. I really enjoyed the acting, writing, and cinematography, and it had a lot of memorable moments; the problem is that it's french lowlifes, french police brutality, and ugly french architecture. I look at the movie as a whole and instead of thinking about characters or themes (which I can think of for fragmentary moments), I find myself asking: what the fuck is wrong with France? Why are they like this? It's as though they used to have something beautiful, then pissed all over it and themselves. I realise that the filmmaker likely intended this on some level, but he and his film are part of this as well: this disgusting Parisian, post-French Revolution rot on a nation that used to be beautiful and likely still is in places. This film feels as though it is turning me into an inverse ouiaboo. It gives me a desire to seek out and learn more about the French so I can learn how they disgust me so and what they had before they succame to this disease. Yuck.
>>2752 >this disgusting Parisian, post-French Revolution rot on a nation that used to be beautiful and likely still is in places. >This film feels as though it is turning me into an inverse ouiaboo. It gives me a desire to seek out and learn more about the French so I can learn how they disgust me so and what they had before they succame to this disease. I feel the same way about America and when it wrong, and because of film, memory, and anecdotal proximity we can contrast how much had changed in 10, 40, 100 years across psyche, race, emotions, logic, and architecture among its people whereas you're going to have to crack open some books and dig on the internet for say France. As for the French what the great Aryan chimpout of 1789 entailed for the rest of the country was the genocide minorities, by tongue or lives, and Paris' cementation as the nation's cultural hegemon. Every minority language in France is dead or languishing except Elsässisch and Basque (I think) which have significantly fallen in the number of speakers whereas the rest of the country has vague or superficial notions of a true local culture like yankee v. southerner in America. Many people I feel do not understand the scope, damage, and similarity to the Russian Revolution that the French Revolution's ramifications had on a cultural level, what liberalism and nationalism were when they were new and paving the way for other petty governmental ideologies, what was lost, the insanity of the new age religions that sprang up, and what it turned the people into. Were the French always so snooty and insufferable? Or is that just Parisians, as Paris still composes and makes up the country as its cultural epicenter deeming what is and isn't and how it is like Hollywood does for American culture. How many voices have been ignored or silenced in 230+ years or tinged by perception of stereotypes of France and Paris. It puts into perspective that we've been living in the same political era for 2 centuries and that mindsets have not changed much to an extent.

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!

>>2381 I saw what I belive to be a children's tv movie made in the 90s or early 2000s. Several kids or adults where hung in good-filled sacks off a tree, and a group of children teenagers banded together to bring the fight to the perpetrators who's leader was an evil ventriloquist dummy. They fought them with flashlights. It should be an episode of the goosebumps franchise but I can't figure out what it is!
>>2842 Night of the Living Dummy?
>>2842 Ok, the only part that matches is the flashlight scene and it's in Revenge of the Lawn Gnomes, but that might not be what you're looking for.

Scene from a movie, where I think it was either Will Smith or another black actor that looked a lot like him, playing a cop in Alaska. There's a scene where he goes in a diner and steals some dude's sandwich and eats it in front of him and mentions how there's bleu cheese in it. That's all I can remember from it.

We can all agree they're reddit right? Had two normalfags in class bring it up in their project, Part of me even wanted to step out of my comfort zone and go "Haha EPIC I too have seen films that are part of the Criterion Collection!" but thankfully didn't. In addition to the fact that towards the end of 2020 when they dropped a physical release bomb or something dozens of people made exposure videos that all got hundreds of thousands of views, we can all agree that as of 2020, they are officially Reddit right? Maybe in the 2010's they were obscure enough to be relegated to only cuckchan tier but now that normalfags jump up in excitement at the name, we can just confirm that it's reddit right?

>>2821 >record time Did you check the dates? i disagree that the fans affect what a released product's quality is but they do decide the direction of its creators (curators in this case) if they want the money. The example is this: >>2823 Wall-E i don't have that much of a problem because it is a special kind of animated movie in the case that it focused more on the movement and set pieces rather than in dialogue or musical numbers, but there's no excuse with the obamanesque nigger drama movies, Cooley High even looks like the cover of a 2010's porn parody production directed by jews both in fiction and in reality, no respect i tell ya. Criterion has indeed been the go-to for people who pretend to be fans of cinema, but at least it served the function to present to those a bit of international cinema with english menus and subtitles (at least back in the mid 00's) and in some cases some of them a bit obscure even for the local market of said movies... still it has been years now where old movies want tons of royalties and Criterion has decided to cash in and distribute catnip for politics, like communist nigger faggot products (those were descriptive, not pejorative) or plainly average stuff that is used as bait for those who know some names (''Solo con tu Pareja" being gutter oil but got a release due to Cuaron & Jewbezki having their names attached). Rather than refocus and start hunting for smaller projects/using different names to bait interesting movies they decided to pick a different crowd and make the same money but from different suckers, if anything the old Criterion buyers have now relied on piracy or hunting titles by directors rather that keep buying their releases while the average soy latte chugger still blindly buys their stuff and gets to namedrop or discuss shit even opinionated blacks know shit about because their cultural marks are 2pacs' rather than Abdoulayes', but because confidence is one hell of a weapon the catfishes have to concede against the testosterone-lacking after they namedrop pic related. Seeing their recent releases i don't think it's that bad, aside from re-releasing a Shaw Brothers kung fu film as an artsy 25 dollar disc when they are 5 dollars for 3 movies at a discount retailer everywhere.
>>2827 Making money and artistic integrity are mutually exclusive. They're running a business. I still chuckled at your take because in an ideal world they'd abandon the majority and do more interesting things.
>>2836 Of course, almost no one runs charities, but you can survive or aka live relatively well and then there's making money and trying to make more and more. Criterion adjusted their market, if they kept going with the really niche stuff after they ran out of "the basics" they would not pump out the same volume and restorations as nowadays due to lack of specialists on staff but i don't think their top workers would be counting beans, they would probably buy a new car every 5 years and eat beef 3 or 4 times a week, sounds dumb but some business do maintain that stable if maybe mediocre or stagnant way of doing stuff. You can maintain artistic integrity and eat a fillet mignon once a week if you play your cards right, i agree you can't buy that mansion trying to be a good dog and provide with quality only as people don't like quality, they like convenience and being targeted with marketing. The siren song of making more money by slightly tweaking trivial work routines (but heavily important doctrine guidelines) is very hard to not heed but some lunatics in some companies do stick with their old ideals or merely create a sub-division to have the oldfags working in niche projects while the main division rakes the market; i don't belittle Criterion, there's other distributors out there, i am just commenting on their nature of what most people think they are and what we know they do. >in an ideal world I also agree there's no ideal world but once in a while there's ideal people, and just sometimes those people also make and take decisions which affect our world.

[JW15 ~ 11/16/2019] Lately I've been watching nonfiction content from the silent era -- found footage, documentary, early fragments. This excellent video from the Museum of Modern Art captures a lot of what attracts me to these films. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BBNwiPgknn8 >It's not so much being seduced by a story, it's the thrill of seeing in itself. I'm just disappointed that it's often difficult to find quality versions of this stuff. Watching anything potato quality youtube or even DVD doesn't do justice to the footage, and you lose the experience of time travel if you can't see clear details.

How to plan the minute story and scenes of your show I know the premise but i cant seem to decide how many characters or how should the scene be or even what is happening to make story sensible Like how should the hero reach the goal or what are the obstacles or the motives how select or even generate ideas for it?
