>>1626 Ryerson Addio
>>1626 I didn't even know about the man until this little spergout by the leaf featherniggers (unsurprisingly, fomented by antifa). But I looked into him briefly, and now pretty much consider him a hero of the West. He refused to educate females past a certain age, since their duty was to the home, not a career. That alone makes him a man worthy of honor.
>>1628 Taking into account he was the guy in charge of educating the canadian injuns i say he did a pretty bad job, they are the most uppity ones in the entire region down to the Darien Gap and that's adding that they don't even have the hypothetical excuse the north american and southwest redskins have that they were relatively peaceful and got their shit slapped, the canadians were the ones who waged war with everyone all the time. His system also evolved later into taking injun kids, often by force, and handing them to newly-arrived immigrants who were in vast majority of european descent, to educate them and pretend they were their own which ended in many of them being psychopaths due to abuse and general dissonance. Also reason many of them have germanic surnames rather than color-animalism-action names (Timmy Yellowfeet, Bobby Redhawk, Johnny Flying Elk). Canadians did them weird, killed them like anglos do then tried to help them but not really and then gave them full rights out of thin air due to the french. Very different from Americans who killed them, secluded them and then started giving them rights little by little... or like Spaniards who killed them, segregated them and then educated those who wanted while further segregating the others and letting the educated red ones do away or force the others as time passed on. Still there's no reason to topple down history, forgetting it only leads to ignorance of societal context and disassociation with your nation (not that canadian nationalism exists anyways)
>>1629 I see. Well, meh. All your color commentary pales into insignificance relative to the absolute devastation that feminist golems have wrought on the Western Tradition. Sounds like the Spaniards had the best ideas related to the featherniggers, though.

>>1630 >All your color commentary pales into insignificance relative to the absolute devastation that feminist golems have wrought on the Western Tradition Agreed but i wouldn't say "pale into insignificance" because the guy practically erased most of the traditions of a good chunk of people, ones who were the closest to the secret of why some "pure-blooded" injuns had old european stock (irish/basque aka pre-indoaryan) in them meaning some earlier migration via either olde viking-tier travelers or something even older. The miscegenation of violent native apaches (who are from Canada, not the US like amerifats want to imply to justify the Indian Wars) with low-tier immigrants made some hellspawn that still roams middle Canada and Quebec with their passive aggressiveness and low-tolerance to alcohol. Also because the mistakes of the past have bigger connotations than today where most things are achieved already, one could banish the Zulu today and nothing would be really lost as most everything we could learn from them has been registered. But yeah, in general sentiment i am more concerned about commie women having rights... period, just extended myself long because Ryerson is the father of Canadian rural alcoholism. >Sounds like the Spaniards had the best ideas And mostly by accident but sure enough, injun peer pressure with their women wanting to adopt more of a comfortable sedentary life with european luxuries was much more effective than the sword of various mercenaries and royal soldiers. If not then we would have an entire mediocre continent dedicated to doing nothing but hunting and fishing, consuming crops of tobacco, coke and weed, where time is measured if it is day or night. Didn't intend to make that sound good but it just happened

>reading Krzysztof Kieslowski's wikipedia page >misread a line as "Both Personnel and his next feature, The Scar (Blizna), were works of social realism with large cats" >immense disappointment when I realize my mistake Are there any particularly good movies about cats you'd recommend? Bonus points if they feature particularly large housecats.
>>1600 I keep wanting to watch that Mexican movie Night of 1000 Cats because it involves a guy flying around in a helicopter to peep at women in bikinis As for good cat movies there's Kuroneko
>>1589 Moloch is the same version I already have, I'm missing the right subtitles though and this torrent doesn't have them either. The Sun is in russian, which isn't the original language of the movie, although the director is russian. Isn't this uncommon for a private tracker? Thank you anyway!

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?
>>1614 >she wanted to watch a movie in bed I reckon I'd bottle it Not the first time it would've happened to me man, except the bed thing >How do you overcome disillusion? You don't unless you curtail your tastes (very hard) or take it very lightly, which can be done in "just for fun/guilty pleasure" movies but for the things you really like/respect it can be as daunting as the first one. Good taste is more of a damning thing than a blessing but if you know how to use it then it's a valuable tool for trading or creating. That's the thing, good taste is a bad thing if you don't use it and at least you have created a movie itself, an admirable effort for a lone user.
>Wojak >Cuckchanners in the comments >Just a bunch of edited footage Kill yourself. >I'd bottle it by shitting on the movie. The trick to women is to not give a fuck about them, I have two hot chicks on hold on Tinder and another dating app right now, haven't said a word, not just because it's 2 in the morning, but because I don't give a fuck. If a woman breaks up with you because of your taste in movies instead of going "Wow interesting." she never loved you to begin with.
>>1614 I watch a lot of bad films and enjoy them as stupid fun or guilty pleasure, which has more to do with appreciating the efforts people put in to create them. I think you can understand that when you already make a movie yourself. Also, I choose different types of films depending on moods/situations; a "heavy" profound film with lots of criticizing social commentaries might not be very suitable when you're overwhelmed by real life lol. Maybe you could be more open or just don't take it seriously.
>>1614 OP this film is fucking amazing, it's just about a guy slowly losing himself on the internet. Extremely depressing and honest, I hope you haven't given up, the response seems pretty good, spam it on /tv/

>>1485 England was the hotspot for much electronica in the 90's, most movies made by anyone under 40 had strong connotations of "the scene" played somewhere. >this isn't the 90s anymore. It should be, and at some point the nostalgia for it will kick in like most decades do after 30 years. The scene in the UK was massive, some of the most important ones were Garage (UK Garage to avoid confusion with US Garage Rock), Big Beat, Breakbeat and Ambient. I don't remember much of the music from the movie as i didn't like it that much but if you liked The Prodigy then Big Beat is your dish. Among them were also The Chemical Brothers, The Crystal Method and Fatboy Slim. They were also pioneers as they used quirky music videos to promote their otherwise abstract lyrics and lack of frontman, much of the golden era of the format was commissioned by those artists. Which reminds me that i need to step it up with that thread.

Three Colours: Blue This probably implies I'm a plebian, especially since I haven't already seen it, but I didn't like it. I downright hated a lot of the colour grading and the woman's lover. The only thing that kept me going was Juliette Binoche's performance.
>>1603 This is a terrible post and I can probably do better tomorrow, when I'm feeling less drained.
>>1603 >This probably implies I'm a plebian There was a time i thought the same and i never posted until i realized anons here are actually welcoming because it means discussing a common thing. But by the time i concluded that i stopped watching films to focus on other things heh. I recall only watching Red, it was okay, nice camera work in particular the dim-lit and sunset scenes but i don't remember liking the old man courting the elegant girl nor the lad who kept falling in despair watching his girl with another dude, which now that i think of it means i didn't like half of the movie. Clever montage have to say because the editing implies old man banged the girl like there was no tomorrow which was also not a good thing to remember.

Bian jing feng yun AKA Lethal Hostage (2012) Director: Er Cheng Quite surprised by this hidden gem. The English title/poster makes it come across as a C-level action movie but it really isn't, more of a crime drama that focuses on relationships between characters. It's beautifully shot, slow-paced, and not dialogue heavy, giving it an arthouse feel. Several interlinked stories are featured with some non-linear storytelling, accompanied with moody color schemes and great sound design that contributes greatly to the ambient. Very pleasant find.

>>1571 Thank you for reminding me i had to finally upload here a loose end i have laying around. 1989's Sono Otoko, Kyôbo Ni Tsuki aka That Man, Being Violent, or better known in the west as Violent Cop, is the director's debut of Takeshi Kitano and a mighty fine one especially taking into account his position was improvised by the producers after the renowned Kinji Fukasaku stepped down due to Kitano, known much more in Japan as the comedian Beat, having to work on TV and only being able to be on set for short bursts of time, something odd for traditional motion picture men. Daisaku Kume was the man in charge of creating the soundtrack, adapting some of the experimental gnostic work of the frenchman Erik Satie (which makes for the main character's rambling theme) along with making a couple of pieces of his own, the most notorious one being the film's Main Theme, along with its end titles and short sax variations. The song is jazzy as hell and typical of Japan's late 80's-early 90's with the heavy MIDI strings and fills, the sonic cues most songs share in this small recording.

Here's a controversial but extremely influential one, 1982's Blade Runner, directed by Riddle Scott in a seemingly-ignored and damned multi-production effort (U.S., the U.K. and H.K.'s Shaw Brothers Studio), the movie itself hasn't been really forgotten due to its combination of expressive, very well made assets but still all used by a somewhat corporativist spirit driving what would be a fucking mess of a product, soundtrack included. In my opinion the movie does almost everything right at a very high level but has a couple of really egregious mistakes that make it odd to palate, one is the director being a pushover ala Walter Hill (or a retarded conman) which resulted in many versions and interpretations... and second the frankly mediocre acting of the main character portrayed by Harrison Ford, picked after the U.S. investors imposed the jew-favorite actor in a tug of war; to have a forgettable main interpretation in a noir movie is usually a damning thing. But anyways the greek electronica pioneer by the artistic name Vangelis was in charge of scoring the super-budgeted film, being contacted in his London studio by Scott after finding success in the score for the jewish fantasy film Chariots of Fire. While the movie "bombed" (as in it didn't make Star Wars money) it quickly became a "cult" classic due to its high standards in everything (but Ford) yet in my opinion most of this cult status came from the movie being actually hard to get ahold on after its initial release: Prints were being recalled out of butthurt, it didn't screen in non-massive markets or was shown only late-at-nite, TV screenings were rare, word in mouth exacerbated most of its already-cool qualities (to the point of overrating) and most importantly for our subject here, the emblematic soundtrack wasn't released until 12 years later. Much akin to the great Koyaanisqatsi the soundtrack (and SFX too in this case) became as iconic as the moving pictures on the screen yet the big effort made by the athenian wasn't fulfilled in the open market for some reason, and actually to this day the complete OST has not been released... just like Koyaa. Vangelis retells how his scoring method consisted of seeing first-hand tapes from the sets with finished scenes or outtakes, Ridley liked to promote the movie in the middle of production which was odd back then hence why he had tons of tapes, but the greek inspired himself mostly from the "mood" made by the sets and the lighting plays commanded by the cinematographer Cronenweth, not to mention the physical recreations of Syd Mead's drawings. The guy used most of his keyboards around and because the city portrayed was a multiculti hellhole he also had to take hand of different scales and sounds from the world, mostly East Asia and the Middle East. He recorded stuff for almost every scene but as mentioned most of this was never released, so what happened? Bootleg galore, this soundtrack has as much versions as the movie itself, fan-edits included and it's an understatement to say this film was influential for the synth-focused musicians who are already considered a bit more mental about their pursuits. One of those efforts, perhaps the most famous one, is the Esper Edition which had a "final" one around 2007 (this post) when the Final Cut was released along with the second official version of the OST. Basically some skilled dudes used tons of different VHS and DVD versions from various releases and bootlegs, used the official soundtracks and some bootlegs sneaked out by somebody (either an engineer or te same greek) then it was mixed all together to create versions as close as possible to the movie YET they made an interesting decision, instead of leaving them as individual pieces without voice overs they decided to mix them together so it could be an "integral" journey, like a concept album/watching a movie unlike the big record releases. This long fan release edition, dubbed the Retirement Edition, quickly became a sought-after item because they printed it in very few numbers either as a play on how awful it was to get products related to the movie or because they didn't have money/were assholes. The complete set fetches hundreds of dollars and someone around did FLAC rip the first two discs which are the Score itself, the others are pretty cool bonuses but haven't seen them in the open yet.
And there it is, while they work okay-ish in this WEBM format in the movie i think most will agree it adds tons of atmosphere and soothes anyone who is constantly questioning Ford's strange, uninterested acting which cannot be justified saying he was a robot because Scott didn't tell him nor was he smart enough to realize that on the script but talking about that there's also an interesting observation here which contradicts the big studios and the recent jew who penned the latest sequel which sucked: Vangelis wrote the End Titles as a lapidary, almost doomsday theme, playing much more in the mood around the "Director's/Final" Cut ending with the sudden realization of the main character rather than the sweet, idyllic escape ending of the original release which didn't seem to need such a dire theme. Scott contradicts himself every year but Vangelis talks about his music talking in melodies and strident changes, so one could say the original ending really was the one in latter versions. I could also talk about the sequel's soundtrack and the whole saga behind it but maybe later, still i want to say Hans Zimmer is either a hack or a massively burned out atmosphere composer tired of scoring who's just winging it for a decade now, and Villeneuve can suck one too. Yeah, and for those interested in the 320kbps: https://mega.nz/file/mNAEnZZI#ZCrzukMbJC3UT6kn-S7dp2n0vSmHhZuHIFj8msFcags
>>1609 >The complete set fetches hundreds of dollars and someone around did FLAC rip the first two discs which are the Score itself, the others are pretty cool bonuses but haven't seen them in the open yet. Here's the 5 disc Retirement Edition in FLAC. I always liked the third disc of sound design from the film. I haven't listened to disc 4 very much, but the last disc is a mixed bag compilation of electronic music and DJ tracks using sounds from Blade Runner. https://mega.nz/file/uw5AUYrC#uIxnAtLMzfY25uVVwdRnX9iveJwntGqOZVLsFeqqiSE https://www.discogs.com/Various-Blade-Runner-Esper-Retirement-Edition-25th-Anniversary-Culmination/release/2217951

Open file (488.58 KB 1335x751 hornos.jpg)
What have you already seen and why do you think it's more interesting?
>>1596 Canada is the most boring place on earth. Naturally, the further you get from it, the stranger and more interesting things become. You could say Canada is the centre of the world, the top of the hierarchy, and as you move away from the centre things become less like it, less normal. The United States, Greenland, Russia, Japan, all these are close enough to be similar but just far away enough to be interesting (the USA least so). The southern hemisphere in general skirts the vast Canadian Sphere of Influence. It is peopled by strange and fearsome creatures, those who live in the no man's land between order and the chaos of outer blackness, the inhospitable antarctic cold which doubles as an inverted, ironic parody of the Canadian centre. This in-between zone is where meaning meets matter, authority meets power, reason meets absurdity. It is a place of dreams, of danger, of potential. It is the perfect place for a film.

[JW02 ~ 04/16/2020] A thread to post and request good documentaries on the variety of subjects. I'll start with some choice docus on ancient Egypt. All are selected for quality of presentation, study of subject as well as absence of current year agendas, we wuz kangz niggers etc. Romer's Egypt (3 episodes; 1982) and Ancient Lives (4 episodes; 1984) – the finest and quintessential ancient Egypt presentation; a soothing, in-depth look into ancient Egypt’s life and culture. It has that unmistakable classy 80s look that elevates it above the rest. https://www.invidio.us/channel/UC4gF7P8JKlJ9xAz8MF6AhFw/videos https://www.invidio.us/user/xinistri/videos Egypt: Beyond the Pyramids (4 episodes; 2001) – somewhat similar to Romer’s; not as in-depth or classy but still an enjoyable watch. https://www.dailymotion.com/search/Egypt%3A%20Beyond%20the%20Pyramids The Robot, The Dentist and the Pyramid (1 episode; 2020) – an excellent amateur documentary about the latest attempt to explore the shaft of the Great Pyramid. https://www.invidio.us/watch?v=rhsddHgybTo Immortal Egypt (4 episodes; 2016) – despite being modern and hosted by a wommyn, it surprisingly manages to somehow avoid the current year pozz and is very much watchable. Probably the best HD series on the matter.

Al-Quds, Zahrat Al-Madain AKA Jerusalem, The Flower of All Cities (Ali Siam, 1969) >Produced as part of a cinematic magazine, “The Flower of all Cities” provides a rare example of the work of Palestinian photographer and cinematographer, Hani Jawharieh (1939–1976), one of the founding fathers of Palestinian cinema. Using the sound track, “The Flowers of all Cities,” a famous song by Fairuz, the film presents a harmonious picture of Palestinian civil life in Jerusalem that is disturbed by the Israeli army’s occupation of the city following the 1967 war. Although essentially a propaganda film by the Jordanian Ministry of Culture, the film captures the essence of the period, the way in which Palestinians and Arabs viewed Jerusalem, and their rage at its occupation by the Israeli army. Given recent events, the film continues to hold contemporary relevance. https://vimeo.com/512517726 Given the intense conflict of the past week, I was interested to watch this short recently posted to KG. It's an ~8 minute travelogue to the Holy City as it had recently slipped from Arab control (in one of many crushing defeats for them). Despite the hardship and forced displacement, Palestinian residents were still optimistic about retaking Jerusalem from the Israelis.
On a related note, Killing Gaza (2018) has been made free to watch online. I'm currently downloading so I don't have personal thoughts yet, but director Max Blumenthal (of The Grayzone) is generally good on foreign policy. https://vimeo.com/549520612 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XfDMXrcYw2I >n 2014, Israel invaded Gaza after 10 days of aerial bombardment failed to stop Palestinian militants from showering Israeli cities with rockets.

>>1556 >Already in 1990, it was known that the weapons cache near Velp, Netherlands, while accidentally 'discovered' in 1983, had been plundered partially before. >That discovery forced the Dutch government to confirm that the arms were related to NATO planning for "unorthodox" warfare, arousing speculation that the Netherlands was involved in Gladio. >Some of the stolen weapons, including hand grenades and machine guns, later turned up when police officials arrested criminals John Mieremet and Sam Klepper in 1991. >Johannes Mieremet was killed, 2005, in Thailand after several previous failed attempts, he was a Dutch underworld hitman associated with the Willem Endstra extortion and assassination. >Willem Endstra was investigated in 1992 for allegedly using his business for money laundering the profits of a criminal gang dealing in ecstasy, real state trader by profession via his rich parents. >Mieremet claimed that he was brought into contact with Endstra via Heineken-kidnapper Willem Holleeder. Mieremet also believed that Endstra was behind a recent attempt on his life. >Endstra appeared on the television program Business Class in 2004, saying that after all these years of investigating without finding anything concrete, the authorities should leave him alone now. The day after the broadcast Endstra was shot near his offices in Amsterdam. >Willem Holleeder, nicknamed De Neus because of the size of his nose, is a dutch underworld figure known for his involvement in the kidnapping of Heineken president Freddy Heineken in 1983. >After serving the Heineken sentence, Holleeder emerged as a high-profile criminal leader. Endstra laundered money with him but secretly testified to the police about Holleeder after a fallout in 2003, but was shot dead near his office in 2004. >According to Endstra, Holleeder was involved in 25 murders, including those of hitman Klepper and fellow Heineken-kidnapper Cor van Hout. >American government was directly involved in a hitman-hard drug-extortion-money laundering ring spawning Netherlands and Belgium. And that's just a very specific case i found. Americans are truly the nigger of the world, with a hairy hand and a big nose moving the strings above.
>>1555 Pretty much what >>1556 said but nonetheless It is a rather interesting film tackling the said issues. The film company was later taken under control by the Turkish government just because the US deemed it as a threat to their relationship with their beloved NATO ally -- You can simply pull up the wiki page for "Valley of the Wolves Iraq" literally the only film to portray US war crimes including the Abu-Ghraib prison torture. Billy Zane was blacklisted from Hollywood just for starring in the film and actually defending it. And about the Gladio one, literally portrays the assassination of one of the former Turkish presidents. >>608 Also remove Yilmaz Guney's "Umut" from the list. A literal hack who can't act for shit, never wrote a script in his entire life or directed, he also for shits & giggles literally shot one of his co-stars with a real gun for "realism" just for him to bleed to death in the end. I am advocate of separating the art from the artist but Umut is objectively a bad film, you can see it for yourself as well.
>>1559 >Umut is objectively a bad film, you can see it for yourself as well. Seems plausible. I haven't seen Umut but I was underwhelmed by Yol, another highly-rated film from Güney. The backstory of production from prison while avoiding the authorities is more interesting than the film itself. https://8kun.top/film/res/13094.html#15145
>>1560 Yilmaz Guney is like that, he's more interesting as a character than what he puts out. He's this extremely far-left figure in the country, people really respect and praise him as a "man of the proletariat" despite hanging out exclusively with the bourgeoisie and spending his time in casinos gambling large sums of money away. Think the only reason why Yol even won a Palme D'Or was just some kind of political bullcrap like look at the line-up here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1982_Cannes_Film_Festival Yol over Fitzcarraldo??? come on!

[JW09 ~ 10/27/2019] I saw this short by chance last night and really enjoyed it. Well-executed concept with a distinctive visual style. >Thursday >Dir: Matthias Hoegg / UK / 2010 https://invidio.us/watch?v=HQ1z0Zzqg5U <An everyday love story set in the not so distant future sees blackbirds battling with technology, automatic palm readers and power cuts. I looked for more content from Matthias Hoegg, but found that he's chosen a more profitable career as animator for hire. Still he's done interesting work for various corporate and non-profit clients. https://vimeo.com/matthiashoegg

The Man Who Planted Trees A friend shared this with me yesterday, figured some of you fags might appreciate it as well. Both he and I noted the animation feels very Canadian, although we can't put a finger on exactly how this is. https://archive.org/details/TheManWhoPlantedTrees19871
>>1550 Love that short.
>>1550 >Both he and I noted the animation feels very Canadian, although we can't put a finger on exactly how this is It's full of soy and weak cucks?
>>1552 Kek, no. This was made in the 80s and adapted from a short story by a frog who got arrested several times on suspicion of being a nazi sympathiser.
>>1550 I remember watching this as a kid. >>1554 >Spoiler Even better now.
