Animated Films you Enjoyed Anonymous 02/12/2023 (Sun) 23:07:08 No.2864 [Reply]
What are some animated films you enjoyed? I saw Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind a while back and I thought it was pretty well composed for an animu. I really like the comfy aesthetics and anachronistic technology. That said some parts were a little unbelievable like the princess beating eight men by herself in a sword fight or her dress magically changing from pink to blue. Also thought the giant's flesh sloughing off was a little bit gross especially for a kid's movie. What are some other animated films worth watching?

>>2864 >Yellow Submarine This was my first real introduction to the music of The Beatles when I was a teenager and always appreciated the psychedelic imagery. >Fantastic Planet Saw this one a few times over the years and appreciate the weirdness of it, although there's something about it I find depressing for reasons I can't quite put my finger on. I think it's the probably the dreary color schemes , gloomy landscapes, and sunless skies combined with seeing humans reduced to animals by their alien masters. >Felix the Cat: The Movie I wouldn't recommend it for adults, but it was one of my favorites as a kid and still find a lot of the worldbuilding to be really creative even if the movie is lacking in a lot of ways. >The Hobbit I haven't seen it since I was in elementary school, but I recall it being really enjoyable. Disney movies are an obvious thing to bring up, but most of my favorites have always been ones from before the Renaissance era like The Sword in the Stone, The Rescuers, and The Black Cauldron. In more recent years I've watched a bunch of Hayao Miyazaki's movies. I liked all his flicks from the '80s to varying degrees. Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind I remember being my least favorite but still could definitely appreciate it the one time I watched it. As far as other anime movies go, I remember having a positive experience with Vampire Hunter D and found Fist of the North Star to be pretty likeable. I've seen Ninja Scroll but don't think I was fully giving it my attention. >>2866 I'm not a big fan of Wizards, but I've always loved the rotoscoped look and the aesthetics of the villains. The whole patchwork mutant-Nazi-demon-Zulu-knight style of Blackwolf's army was badass. I always wished the good guys had a cooler gimmick instead of just being elves, fairies, and dwarves. I think the movie also might have led me to watching Alexander Nevsky too, so I'm thankful for that.
some of the first animation films I saw (that weren't derived from childhood cartoons) really made an impact on me because of how complicated and composed they were, I guess I was lucky because I only saw them fully back then and I can still see the films in my head. Some of them were Tekkonkinkreet, the Batman: Gotham Knight from 2008, Metropolis from 2001 and Skycrawlers. I might be forgetting some right now. There's also the eigth episode of Ghost Stories titled The Circuit Connects to Hell which is not as complex at all as the other animations but I thought it was a pretty good concept, it was so striking to me that for a long time I confused some of the scenes with Paprika, which I haven't seen other than a few clips. (FYI: this is the infamous American dub that is filled with jokes but I'm sure you can find the original dialogue somewhere https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x7xg0hf)

>>2873 Wizards is a good example of style over substance, at least in my book. The plot and storytelling may be an absolute mess, but it sure does look pretty cool in a lot of scenes.
>>2931 Interesting. Bakshi is a fucked-up kike, but even he could recognize Hitler's charm. Clearly plaigiarizing Toklien's Saruman character though. Happy Birthday Hitler, we miss you!

>>1422 Sad to inform that the video got a copyright strike and it's down... I managed to download only a 360p version from the YT editor because that's as high as it goes apparently (the original upload was 720p but I can't find the final rendered file so I might just have to do another video from scratch...) I found a decent copy of Shawn's Teatro 10 performance, but I'd love to find a better copy of the Amico Flauto broadcast since the only source I can find is a shitty Facebook upload.
>>2743 I was wondering where it had went - I thought you took it down yourself! Damn copyright is crazy nowadays, If you reupload it will it be on the same channel or a different one?
>>2908 I'll probably upload an enhanced version since I found better footage of some of the live sequences, but to avoid copyright I'll upload the whole thing elsewhere

>>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...

>>1035 Have you had a chance to watch it? This is a rare movie where I at first did not care for it but as I thought more about it, I appreciated it a lot. I'm sure many will compare it to AI, and while there are striking similarities (lonely, affluent people living in ugly, mundane smart-houses who choose to buy children androids) this movie goes into territory that resonates with me a lot more. While AI was very focused on David and his selfish wish fulfillment, this movie has an ultimately far more hopeful conclusion. In an ironic image, the android girl wears an oversized sweater that says "Nature is the Future" I think that this movie ultimately is concluding that the android relationship cannot and will never be an adequate surrogate for human interaction. I think this is also why the father ends up having sexual relations with the android, because of his extreme dissatisfaction with the relationship, he ends up exploring more perverted and unnatural outlets with it in order to find fulfillment. But of course, he will never find replacement for his real daughter who died ten years prior to the film's events. Basically, this movie is very critical of synthetic proxies unlike AI, which could be construed either way. I think it's worth a viewing, even with its rocky faults.

A few more that fit OP request. L'amant AKA The Lover (1992) directed by Jean-Jacques Annaud, novel by Marguerite Duras. Probably the best film of the bunch because of the quality production and period location of French Indochina. I watched half of it years ago before I knew anything about Duras. I'm interested to revisit because I think her films can be too wordy. Maid in Sweden (1971) with Christina Lindberg. Amazing tits, mediocre film. Bilitis (1977 ) David Hamilton's most well-known film. I'm surprised it's not on the infamous chart? You could add A Summer in St. Tropez too. That one is essentially a dreamy music video with no plot (only available in shitty VHS quality). Twinky (1970) directed by Richard Donner, with Charles Bronson and Susan George. I only know this one from the extremely catchy theme tune - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i7jRgV9lP-o Reminds me when you date a younger girl you have to put up with her juvenile bullshit. Le farò da padre (1974) with Theresa Ann Savoy. No english subtitles. I haven't seen it but noticed it while browsing Italian exploitation films and remembered this thread.

As no one mentioned Jean Séria's movies. I think it was some hype at this time (around 70's) in France treating subject like this. Don't deliver us from evil seems quite an enjoyable movie tho. Daniel Cohn-Bendit will approve.

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

Zoltan Fabri's Merry-Go-Round is a fine film but The Fifth Seal is objectively better. It's basically the difference between an 8/10 vs. the elusive 9/10. What was the justification for this choice? I suppose there are no wrong choices since favorites are entirely arbitrary, but I'm curious nonetheless.
>>2440 The Fifth Seal is a world cinema classic and deserves to be added. We could double up on other directors as well. There's ample room left. I was thinking Peter Greenaway - The Falls is a little different from most of his films so we could include one that represents his typical style.

Ghost Dance (Ken McMullen, 1983) Thanks to anon on the old board for recommending this free-spirited hidden gem that's composed of different segments riffing on the concept of ghosts. An early appearance by Derrida provides the film with philosophical inspiration as two actresses embark on a series of playful vignettes through dark corners of London and Paris. While I'm not a huge fan of "interpretive dancing", the film's climax includes the best example of this form that I've seen, mostly because it utilizes both symmetry and reflection -- the performer stands on a thin surface of water while beams and columns of a tunnel span behind him.

Films that revolve around a protagonist in a dead end life serve as a cautionary tale to viewers Anonymous 03/04/2022 (Fri) 20:39:48 No.2364 [Reply]
Hey all, what are some films similar to these two?
Woah, Caden was not in a dead end life, Caden had every chance in that movie to make things work, twice, if not thrice. He had two daughters and still abandoned both, he had two potential partners and still rejected them. It's only after they both leave him that he regrets letting them go. The entire point of the movie is that outlook and decisions change things, you're not stuck in a dead end unless you think you are. It's almost antithetical to the genre you want.
>>2365 Are you forgetting about his (Caden's) mental illness(es)? Check this out: >Repetition compulsion is a psychological phenomenon in which a person repeats an event or its circumstances over and over again. This includes re-enacting the event or putting oneself in situations where the event is likely to happen again. This "re-living" can also take the form of dreams in which memories and feelings of what happened are repeated, and even hallucinated. >Repetition compulsion can also be used to cover the repetition of behaviour or life patterns more broadly: a "key component in Freud's understanding of mental life, 'repetition compulsion' ... describes the pattern whereby people endlessly repeat patterns of behaviour which were difficult or distressing in earlier life". https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Repetition_compulsion
Motivational Growth - but it goes the "gf solves life crisis" route which ruins the movie. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ToRhJWIBZrE

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.

[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.

I imagine most people here interested in silent movies have seen this, but this series is essential for those who haven't seen it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8mo3Z8IkLnU Buster Keaton: A Hard Act to Follow and Harold Lloyd: The Third Genius are worth watching too. I feel like I've also seen parts of Cinema Europe but don't remember much of it.
