Thanks to everyone who showed up! What was the best and worst movie shown this weekend? I might do something around Christmas or New Year's for just one day, as the pool of good or even moderately enjoyable vidya movies has quickly thinned down. If you have any suggestions please make them here.

The Russians are great at art. This is a thread for their crafts, mainly films/tv, but other interesting forms of art are welcome too. The Criterion's restoration of War and Peace is simply gorgeous.

"Identify this film I barely remember!" thread italodisco 03/13/2022 (Sun) 21:58:51 No.2381 [Reply] [Last]
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!

Fat old woman in a night gown holding a double-barrel shotgun yelling at someone to get the fuck out of her house in an emotional teary tone of voice.
>>2427 I have similar desire to watch an old Tarzan documentary making of - it showed the actor talking about how he was to wrestle an adolescent tiger but the cat was a chill with him so he ended up pulling on his ears/whiskers to provoke it and then he said he only managed to get enough for the take because the tiger interpreted him as playing a game for a while & that he got marked up everywhere >>2935 It's not what you are looking for but Paperhouse can be described as thematically similar and the quality is there. It's about a kid who gets sick, and then they start to fever-communicate with one another. Don't try to spoil/read into the ending for it, because the director hasn't said what he wanted an audience to think of it

A YouTube short I watched years ago of a man who's planning his suicide with noose ready and all, and decides to play his piano before doing so in which a crowd of people gradually begin to follow him and make merry.

horror Anonymous 10/31/2023 (Tue) 06:16:15 No.3084 [Reply]
Hello /film/. Are you/have you watched any good horror films for the Halloween season? Any good recs? Thoughts on the genre of horror? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7QcBfL3Dnps
I don't really like horror, but I enjoyed Candyman recently
Open file (87.41 KB 1194x720 city of the dead.jpg)
I started watching Tokyo Gore Police but it was more disgusting than I expected. So instead I watched The City of the Dead, a tale of a remote New England village called Whitewood with a history of burning witches. Professor Christopher Lee advises his female student to go to Whitewood in order to research the practice of witchcraft and its societal fallout. The young girl agrees, traveling alone to the village on a foggy night to stay at the local inn. From there the story is mostly predictable -- there are better options for horror. I need to find something better for tonight. I started watching a questionable giallo about a man who witnesses a murderer dumping a body off a pier, so he confronts and blackmails the murderer into killing his wife. Meh.
>>3086 I'm gonna watch When Evil Lurks, it's a new film.

My horror recommendation is The Territory by Raoul Ruiz
>>3087 It was awful. People have incredibly shit taste for liking this dumpster fire of a movie.

A thread for Nordic cinema. Woke shit not welcome.

>>1729 >Raven trilogy by Hrafn Gunnlaugsson Thanks, I'll be sure to watch them. I avoid their films because of the same reasons, so it's nice to have some curated recommendations.
>>3046 update: the second one was kinda bad, but the other ones were great (especially the first one)
There was this film I saw years ago about these wanderers somewhere in the nordic realms long, long ago. The struggles for their survival under harsh conditions against all odds was the primary scenario of the film. What struck me then and has stuck with me since was the final scene where the 5 remants made it alive, and then each of them had some kind of legendary symbol float up above them towards the overhead camera shot -- it was apparently that these 5 individuals were the core of some following nordic myth or legend. Unfortunately I've forgotten what the name of the movie was, or even which language it was in. I've tried to locate it since, but to no avail. My guess is it was filmed in the 70's or 80's. I wish I could find it again. Ring any bells, /film/?
any more recommendations, anons?
You don't expect to see a whodunit parlor mystery selected as a nation's top film, but that's what critics did in Finland. Inspector Palmu's Mistake is certainly an essential entry in the genre, smartly written with a coterie of compelling characters. But I'm not quite sure what the inspector's mistake was -- his one slip-up was being temporarily distracted after getting drunk during lunch. https://yle.fi/a/3-6372726

What was the last thing you watched, and what did you think of it?

Watched Cobra Verde last night. I enjoyed it quite a bit. It doesn't seem to get as much attention as the other two Herzog-Kinski collaborations with South American connections, but I really liked the premise of an outlaw getting a job as a plantation overseer, getting sent to Africa for knocking up the master's mulatta daughters, and then going Lawrence of Arabia with a force of Dahomey Amazons. The only remaining Herzog movie with Klaus Kinski for me to see is the Nosferatu remake, but I think I'll pass on that one. I wasn't impressed with the little bit I've seen compared to the original.
>>3076 I think the Klinski dracula added quite a bit to the original
>>2971 Agreed. The story felt like it was clearly written for a man. Wish they'd made it with a good lead; now it's just another oscar bait that has been completely forgotten.
Open file (240.97 KB 1600x900 satantango.jpg)
Some of the films I watched the past couple of months. Satantango -- watched it in a cinema like a retard and fucked up my neck for 2 weeks afterwards. It rains, there's mud, peasants are cruel, people were audibly upset at that one scene and someone who probably spoke hungarian was laughing at the dialogue so it's potentially quite funny. Communism is mostly about walking everywhere and then trusting a petty criminal with your future before you get drunk and try to forget about it all. As I watched it I kept thinking about how Tar fully foresaw the streaming miniseries format of extensive walking shots as filler. What a genius. The Chaser -- up there with I Saw the Devil in terms of pure south korean cynicism. Was it good? Yes. Would I recommend it? eh watch the Wailing instead it's at least fun. Noriko's Dinner Table -- You've got to appreciate the ability to perfectly characterize someone in less than a minute. Or introduce an extremely novel plot point and then make it seem oddly normal, if that isn't an oxymoron. Antichrist -- there's a part in this where dafoe is being attacked by a crow in foxhole and I just kept thinking about how good it would be if Miike had directed this.

>>3079 >The Chaser Watched it way back after someone recommended it in the old place, it's the korean school of pain and misery but without the comedy that characterized the early attempts like 2002's Public Enemy which i find similar. >Would I recommend it? I would, it's well made if a bit of a downer for the normalfags due to being "pure south korean cynicism", it's not a K-Drama, it's people getting fucked and fucking others although i've heard people talk about some of their gook series and being mildly appalled at the details they mention, maybe they are as cynical as the 00's movies were. >The Wailing Many mention the need or at least the familiarity with gook customs to be able to fully enjoy it but i haven't even checked it despite being in my folder for a really long time.

Have any of you guys seen this? I only found out about these two Ellis Island subversives recently. Now I see there's a movie about them (probably very sympathetic). Maybe the anti-communist scenes are good though.
>>3051 The same director made a movie about the Italian invasion of Ethiopia starring Nicholas Cage! I don't know why I never heard of this before.
