>>2091 FUCK i forgot about your request, to top it i actually did put more names into the list but not all of them. It's long winded stuff, will paste it into a website later, right now i've seen very few compared and can only avail for the next names either for having seen their stuff or their names having a strong ubiquity, no particular order: Directors: 60's (The Black Wave): Dušan Makavejev, Aleksandar Petrović, Živojin Pavlović 70's (TV bigger than Cinema era): Goran Paskaljević (so i heard) 80's (Comedy era, economic crisis post-Tito): Slobodan Šijan, Goran Marković 90's (Yugo Wars era): Srđan Dragojević 00's (Post-War/U.N. pillage era): Srdan Golubović, Dejan Zečević (so i heard) 10's: Can't say Despite this the most famous one in the west is Emir Kusturica, honestly he's decent but personally i don't know if i would recommend it with a clear conscience, 1995's Underground is practically the next guy's movie... Writers: Dušan Kovačević, their quality kingpin from the 80's to the early 00's although not many filmed works, probably more focused on novels and theater stuff but his works do have him taking many creative decisions to the point of either being the de-facto director or the nominal one with the cinematographer acting as the technical side of everything. Cinematographers: I found their camera work is basic and pragmatic, nothing stands out that much but if i had to say one i would name Aleksandar Petković, maybe Božidar Nikolić, both are conservative and often are "camera as a tool" rather than "as a protagonist". I've enjoyed some Tomislav Pinter works too, all of these worked in tons of stuff so you will stumble upon them as often as the stock Belgrade Theater actors. Mind you i've only seen what was considered the mainstream and a couple of obscure ones but the main works of all of these is a good gauge for your own Yugo credentials, the really obscure stuff like for example... that one movie i forgot its name but had a great poster image was very tough to find i remember well and that's not including the subtitles which are the real trick, that's the main problem with these movies and you might sometimes find the usual yubraca.net DVDrip but not the actual words to check it. With some of these directors i've seen only one movie or they are universally backed but with others (Šijan, Marković) i've seen 3+ movies to make a decent opinion, they are good entertainment but can't say life changing although they did open my eyes fully about top-tier actors carrying entire movies in budget locations and budget camera work if the writing is decent enough, basically filmed theater.

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.

Film books Anonymous 12/12/2020 (Sat) 02:01:11 No.963 [Reply]
A thread to discuss and share books about films. Pic related is "The Film Book" by DK Publishing. I love picture books from DK when I was small, and now being an adult, I bought a physical copy of this. It consists of general knowledge about the history of cinema, how a film is made, and the large part of the book is about genres, cinema from different countries, top 100 directors and top 100 films. The book is not too in-depth and doesn't feature anything too obscure. It works well as a beginner guide for film enthusiasts. A lot of non-Hollywood films and directors are featured so it's a plus. The book is contained in a tin box and presented really nicely (like all DK products). Anyway, I saw this laughable 1-star rating on Goodreads: "...no Tarantino in the list of directors?! REALLY!?! And no Pulp Fiction in the list of best movies?! REALLY!?!" Kek. Hope this thread will help us find more reading materials and more films/directors to watch.

Any good books about film making? I've already read pic related, looking for something similar. Preferably by people outside of Hollywood.
I've been reading introduction to a true history of cinema and television (caboose english version) while trying to watch godard chronologically. also reading harocki's godard book, speaking about godard. i'm at la chinoise now. any recs on other good books on godard?
Does somebody know of a decent uploading service? i used AnonFiles but they pulled a good one on me and deleted 10+gb despite being under a user due to i suppose lack of downloads, so there goes using it as an official library. I want to give Mega a try due to not taking down anything from me, or that anon who posted that one controversial german girl robot movie, but i think they check your IP for amount of accounts linked there but i could be wrong. I have a hand grenade of a couple hundred books ranging some of the technical sides of movies (filmmaking) and i know if i don't do it soon i won't until much later. >>2151 >any recs You could try staying sane and not watching him but there's a widely circulated PDF called The Films of Jean-Luc Godard: Seeing the Invisible. Can't say if it is good but if there's something about Godard fans is that they know very well how to spin his work into seeming mostly interesting rather than okayish.
>>2171 thanks for the rec. not sure if mega tracks IP, i always use it for uploading stuff for people. I must have tens of accounts by now

[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.

>>2159 Here's a newer one https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0426688/ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZMCEK7pJvZg https://ulozto.net/hledej?q=BBC.The.First.World.War >There have been some pretty good documentary series on World War One - like the BBC's '1914-18' and 'The Great War,' which inspired 'The World at War' - but this Channel Four series is the best ever. Unlike almost all of the others it gives you a look at the WORLD war aspect of it, not just focusing on the Western Front or (like most poor US documentaries) on the last year when America was involved, you also see the war in Russia, in Arabia, in Africa to get a real sense of the scale. Unlike 1914-18 it takes a chronological look at the war, but does it in a riveting way: the first episode plays like a thriller, while others are like tragedies. And it doesn't fall in for clichés or easy targets. It dispels a lot of myths along the way (for example, did you know the assassinated Arch Duke Franz Ferdinand was anti-militarist and had actually prevented war breaking out several times? I didn't) and holds your attention throughout. And the haunting end title music written by a composer who died in the war is unforgettable.
>>2160 I checked the IMDB ones, I don't think it's there. Maybe it was amateur. I'll find it one day.

Open file (187.73 KB 760x510 SEP12-Homeland.jpg)
Juris Podnieks' six documentaries are overlooked yet indispensable for what they are as they capture the dying days of the Soviet Union from someone born and raised in it with two of them focusing on his native Latvia. The most famous of these is Krustceļš where the Baltics defied and vied their independence through song and linking hands together around their nation singing folk songs and dressing in national costume. Podnieks and his crew were shot at and beaten during these protests with one member dying during filming.
>>2163 I just checked IMDb and it doesn't mention End of Empire, I'm guessing they skipped it since it could be considered an updated version of "Soviets". Do you know where I can find the Stone of Sisyphus?
>>2163 It's really a shame that Juris died so young, soon after the USSR finally collapsed. His work is phenomenal.

Can you guys think of any films or documentaries with an English dialect that is unintelligible without subtitles? I've encountered some before, but I did not watch or make note of them. I see that Cumbrian carries Old English/Norse influence making it hard to understand, and some rural Scottish/Irish can be tricky too. I don't know if there's enough linguistic variation in the United States for unintelligibility, but maybe heavy ebonics or spanglish would get there.
>>2131 God I hate these youtubers shitty attempts at humor. Otherwise interesting video.
>>2141 Yeah it's fucking awful. Sadly it's a common trend of a decent video being made by some insufferable eceleb. And it's usually one good video on the entire channel otherwise filled with leftysoy.
>>2131 What program can produce those effects and animation? Nice job on the presentation but I don't know why this guy cares so much about that movie unless he has kids
>>2166 >why this guy cares so much about that movie unless he has kids Go back to plebechan.

Fuck it, i am bored and despite having tons of movies left in the bag i haven't seen any in at least 2 years that is in the same level as you guys. I can start any day with that bag but because i have my brain fried i want to request someone here to name one film so i can comment on it in this thread, anything goes as long as i can find it. I requested the same to my irl peers to challenge my own vision but they are too hollywoodized and don't want to because i rec'd them many and they haven't watched any, so i came to the only other source i sympathize.

>>2068 I did watch it some years ago but don't mind doing it again because it's a treat. Guess that's the first one, will make some webms and write it down.

Lately I've become intrigued by Thomas Ligotti's short horror stories. Ligotti is popular in the dissident sphere -- in some ways he's a successor to Lovecraft -- but I only heard of him recently. Many of his stories are read by amateurs on youtube, making for handy podcast-length listening. Ligotti's writing creates such powerful visuals in my mind I was interested to see screen adaptions of his work. Unfortunately the film version of his story "The Frolic" was a big letdown -- even though Ligotti himself worked on the screenplay! The original story involves a prison psychologist at home in the evening, speaking to his wife about his meetings with a strange murderer. As the psychologist goes into deeper details about the murderer, the atmosphere in his home is one of escalating dread. The short film has less focus on atmosphere and more focus on acting, perhaps unavoidably so, but most people would see it as a downmarket Silence of the Lambs where main attraction is the wEEeeEird yet brilliant murderer. Instead of slowly building suspense, the film is peppered with cheap jump scares. Another great thing about the original story was its ambiguity, giving the reader a puzzle that demands attention to every small detail. The film throws this away by adding scenes that explain far too much. It's disappointing that this project turned out so poorly because the work deserves much better. Regardless, here are some Ligotti stories for your listening pleasure: The Bungalow House, The Town Manager - https://pseudopod.org/people/thomas-ligotti/ Gas Station Carnivals - https://youtube.com/watch?v=w-UY6DtZLDA The Frolic - https://youtube.com/watch?v=w11mfpEVSDw

>>1873 I nominated the theme. I havent posted since 8ch but I was wondering if you consider The Plague Dogs (1982) and Punishment Park or Edvard Munch or some nod towards Peter Watkins.
>>1912 >I havent posted since 8ch Welcome back bud >I was wondering if you consider I'm not the BO but i think he would add any movie as long as you think it's one of your personal favorites, for me i think Punishment Park is a bit of a leaner to one side but the concept itself makes for a compelling work, hell the poster art is still very iconic and one of the main reasons people watch it.
>>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
