[JW14 ~ 01/22/2020] I have recently watched a couple Nollywood films, and was curious what is /film/'s take on Nollywood? Personally, I love how enthusiastic they seem to be about making movies. I believe in a decade or two, they could begin going through a sort of "new wave", and start producing some real quality films.

African cinema: ten of the best https://www.theguardian.com/film/filmblog/2012/sep/03/10-best-african-films https://archive.is/pRS9M An older list from Mark Cousins with some common titles and some others I haven't seen. This bisexual comment regarding Cairo Station was surprising to me. I don't remember that being relevant to the film at all, but perhaps there's a subtext that I completely missed. >If Alfred Hitchcock had been Egyptian and bisexual, and had himself played Norman Bates, Psycho might have been something like this.

This documentary is credited to Ethiopia but it's not entirely homegrown -- the director is half-Mexican, left Ethiopia at age ten, studied at UCLA, lives in Brooklyn. Still I like the meditative mood of this trailer so (as someone who never watches anything new) I'll probably check it out. https://yewtu.be/watch?v=NltBA1RbJUc >Ethiopian legend has it that khat, a stimulant leaf, was found by Sufi Imams in search of eternity. Inspired by this myth, Faya Dayi is a spiritual journey into the highlands of Harar immersed in the rituals of khat, a leaf that Sufi Muslims chewed for religious meditations – and Ethiopia’s most lucrative cash crop today
>>590 >Wakaliwood and Nollywood are similar on the surface but seeing two of their movies I can say former makes genuinely good action movies, better than anything America has made Is that ironic or has some Ugandan out there actually made a great action movie?

>>1903 I remember watching one of the meme films, Bad Black, and jokes aside i was surprised how "decent" the plot was and it was alarmingly well executed too, budget and set conditions considered. Some overused action genre cliches are there along with the gaudy cheap CGI but the director still managed to pull interesting dynamics regarding the main protagonist's emotional progression from slum orphan to ruthless bad bitch (hence the film's title), not to mention a harsh critique on Africa in general with tongue in cheek jokes and plot points (kids used as sex toys, a hammer being called an Ugandan Key). Although somewhat of a weak ending part due to it being so prolonged/dragged out i suppose, great is not really what i would call this movie but there's obvious amounts of efforts and creativity (stuntmanship, prop item construction) that wager a bit of genuine praise out of the usual pity brownie points some african movies usually get. Hong Kong this ain't but it is more entertaining than a contemporary action movie without the expensive CGI tricks.
>>591 Some of the best movie producers in India are from Bengal, the Hindu part of Greater Bengal. I see Bangladesh film industry having a great future ahead.

Films that take place in the southern hemisphere? Nick gurrs 05/27/2021 (Thu) 21:48:36 No.1593 [Reply]
I'm tired of the northern hemisphere . I feel like the southern hemisphere is just a lot more interesting

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.

>>1596 >La hora de los hornos I just watched this. It was an hour too long but there's plenty of interesting content if you can power through the slower parts. After establishing the present (1968) situation in Argentina, the documentary chronicles the rise and fall of Juan Perón and the ensuing years of struggle by leftist activists to re-establish their brand of Peronism. The activists tried street protests, labor strikes, even winning elections, but each time their resistance efforts were thwarted by the police or military. The documentary reflects upon these tactical failures and searches for a more effective path. While I'm not entirely sympathetic to the activists' motivations, their frustration with an intransigent political system that answers their grievances with violence is more and more relatable.

Film restoration/recovery Anonymous 09/01/2020 (Tue) 16:19:58 No.429 [Reply] [Last]
[JW08 ~ 08/27/2019] Recently started to dig up some "forgotten" films that need love in order to restore or redistribute them. Let me know if you want me to look up a specific film you're interested in, right now we just finished a second try restoration for Madness by Cesare Rau https://youtube.com/watch?v=PI_wY7EUU_M ...and next we want to move onto Cerco de Terror and Appuntamento a Dallas. (The first edition of Madness had a bit of color correction problems, it was too fucking dark at times) On 8chan someone requested Gillo Pontecorvo's La Grande Strada Azzurra, so we're currently working on that too.

>>1856 Is it online?
>>1857 I downloaded a pirated version but haven't installed it yet
>>1856 I've used their photo programs and i find the old non-AI versions yield better results, at least the DeNoiser and Sharpener ones, the newer versions took down some comparison tools and streamlined the options to add a general AI slider. Many programs have been fucked in the butthole with this "AI" fad, they were already simple enough to use but with this new wave there's even less options, i fear the actual userbase is not as mentally sharp as i thought. In terms of the Video Enhance one, i've seen results for their 4k conversions/upscale and it leaves tons of artifacts like outlines and mushy texturing that looks like beauty filters, also a pervasive digital fine grain that looks odd in places like skin tones or foliage. Like everything it should be used with moderation, 60FPS doesn't look good with sources that were under 20FPS (like old timey reels) because the technique just multiples frames and makes variations with motion, so low FPS videos suddenly looks like heavily motion-blurred video game footage. The coloring aspect i didn't know, that does sound promising and the only one i can think of because that does save massive amounts of time.
>>1860 >it leaves tons of artifacts like outlines and mushy texturing that looks like beauty filters, also a pervasive digital fine grain that looks odd in places like skin tones or foliage. That's too bad. I haven't actually watched a full film that's been restored like this. I've only seen short clips and screencaps. The person who made Begotten for KG converted the Topaz video output to PNGs and then touched them up with Irfanview and Premiere. From the caps that project looks quite good considering the extremely grainy source, but I didn't actually watch it (and the bluray is supposedly in the works but who knows).

>>1874 >converted the Topaz video output to PNGs and then touched them up with Irfanview and Premiere That's a double step, intensive but sounds good, he probably moved contrast to pull detail out of the shadows. I recall watching that movie many years ago back in the old, old place but i almost felt asleep, it is an artsy direction with the purposely high key grainy footage so in that case i don't think he had much trouble. >I haven't actually watched a full film that's been restored like this The Gay Porn Acting without the Porn community has some Topaz 4K conversions and few 8K scene upscales if you really want to see what a normal, standard upscale looks like. Here's screencaps comparing the same scene in the classic wholesome, totally non-gay and definitely not awkward dialogue sequence. Because these flicks had native speeds of 30FPS from the typical digital camcorders the 60FPS conversions are not that jarring, 24FPS can still cut it but in old timey sources that have FPS below the 18 count, like 16, 12 or even 8, the footage starts to look jarring. I haven't seen it but i guess if you apply motion blur the program will overwork and produce, i suppose at best, scenes akin to artsy 90s asian action sequences if original footage had considerable camera movement. Interpolation software and procedures have greatly advanced in recent years so that quality gap in low FPS footage can be somewhat narrow now if the original camera position was static, but we are still a bit far from decently upscaling low-resolution footage.

Nordic Cinema Anonymous 07/25/2021 (Sun) 20:12:01 No.1728 [Reply]
A thread for Nordic cinema. Woke shit not welcome.
The modern Scandinavian countries are the worst liberal shithole ever, so I avoid most of their new stuff. I like the scenery and atmosphere of the place, which could be a great setting or background for films. Could you recommend some brooding, atmospheric films from this region? On a not very related note, does anyone find viking stuff in current pop culture so fucking gay? Everything about vikings from Hollywood and their allies, even a fucking Japanese comic (Vinland Saga) also features a tranny character in the Middle Ages. Is it because they're trying to feminize masculine characters into emotionally driven, bumbling idiots who submit at the will of women? On the other hand, I'm watching the Raven trilogy by Hrafn Gunnlaugsson and really enjoy them. Classic "Spaghetti Western" in Iceland and with Vikings. I've completed the first one, When the Raven Flies, which is said to be based on Yojimbo. There's something charming about the type of hero that sets a goal and follow it with determination and competence (at first). It's fun to follow them on their journey and look for their next success, or failure. The music imitates western films but is played on synthesizer, sounds hilarious but also... charming. I guess I like western as a genre and reinventing it in an exotic setting is very enjoyable.
In the Shadow of the Raven (1988), second movie of the Raven trilogy.

>>1745 More like a killer about to strangle a woman. Get your mind out of the gutter. I watched some of these quite a lot throughout 2019-2020 and I learned to hate them. The entire "genre" consists of untalented hacks who generate the most base entertainment possible. There are rare strokes of interesting images and good imagination, but beyond that it's a great way to become depressed and hate movies. The audience for these movies is horrible as well.
>>1754 Are you the "cinema is shite" guy? Not judging you for that but if you're one of the serious film watchers these might not be for you. B-movies has a pretty wide scale of quality though, ranging from barely watchable (I can't sit through a film if it's too shitty either) to great genre fares (just not ambitious enough to become "A-movies"). You shouldn't force yourself to watch something you don't like and become depressed because of them, bro. >The audience for these movies is horrible as well. Care to elaborate?

From CG, to irl conventions: there are a ton of reference points for you to gather what kind of people generally are into low-budget schlock.

There are people from all sides who enjoy this type of movies I think. My experience from CG people is that I don't really understand their sense of humor. I would prefer a more serious crowd (but not pretentious) with knowledge about cinema and filmmaking. But CG kind of crowd can be fun at times because they don't take things seriously.

Az ember tragédiája/The Tragedy of Man is a fantastic film that I've never seen discussed. It's based on the 1861 play of the same name – regarded as one of the greatest works of Hungarian literature – and follows Adam, guided by Lucifer, as he journeys through history, from humanity's inception in the Garden of Eden till its wretched end. Although the film began production in 1988, it wasn't released until 2011. After the collapse of Hungary's communist government, director Marcell Jankovics had to finance each of the film's fifteen segments individually, some of which were screened at film festivals or on Hungarian TV over the years. In fact, the end product had to be re-dubbed since the original voice actors were too old by the time the animation was complete. Jankovics actually believed that the play was better suited to the animation medium rather than the stage, which I agree with. Animation really unfetters the story and leaves it free to express itself on a grander scale, with each historical period being represented by the artstyle of the time. For example, the segment that takes place in Ancient Greece takes the form of engraved pottery, whereas the far future segment is all bold lines and part-monochrome to reflect the sterile and mechanical world. My personal favourite is the cross-hatched style in the Prague scene – aesthetics aside, it also visually represents the restricted thinking of the era, in contrast to the clean, fluid animation of the following French Revolution, reverting back to cross-hatching when said revolution fails. The film begins with the creation of the universe and the Fall of Man soon after. Having been cast out of Paradise, a prideful Adam is determined to pursue personal glory. In response, Lucifer whisks him away to Ancient Egypt – where Adam the pharaoh, having built a magnificent pyramid, has realised his desires at the cost of countless slave lives. He then reasons that equality between men is the true road to happiness, and is transported to a democratic Greece in chaos. The rest of the film follows this formula, with each of Adam's dreams being exposed as futile, and Adam himself growing older and wearier with each ensuing cycle. Eve also appears in each cycle of Adam's journey, providing him with the hope to strive on for a better outcome. In this way, she is ultimately his downfall. The ending is what really sets "Az ember tragédiája" apart, IMO. God is unfathomable, his intentions impossible to comprehend. Whether he truly has an unknowable plan for mankind, or is simply a callous creator, is left up to the viewer. >Man, I have spoken: Struggle and have faith! <The end is death; life is a struggle. And man's end is the struggle itself. And so, Adam resigns humanity to pushing the boulder up the hill until the last man's cold, miserable death. Overall, I think it's a beautiful film and I'm thankful to have seen it. Apparently the director felt the same way as he was in his 70s by the time his movie was finally released, lol. I highly recommend you check this one out.
>>1687 I love it and became very interested in the original play after watching the epic animated film. There are a couple live-action adaptations too but It's hard to imagine anything surpassing the effort by Marcell Jankovics.
>>1673 I vaguely remember watching a Russian movie about Orthodox monks being held hostage by the Mongols. I think it was called 'the Horde' or something.

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?

Well you can't really expect them not to in current year, what really surprised me is that they're scared of Eastern Bloc and tankie films. You are wholeheartedly right though, there's a lot of similarities among Criterion films, you can arguably synthesize a whole new film out of just recutting the one's they have released, maybe even get them to distribute it for an extra layer of sweet irony.

>>1547 Not really bad but out of place in the original meaning of the catalogue (not so if Moonstruck is there too) it was a mainstream movie for the "let's take the missus to the cinema" audience based on a popular book in the style of romance/magic realism made by a woman about a family in a town she seems to have never visited or misunderstood a lot. Wrote this part last, wrote a lot again so TL;DR it's not real bad but its meta is controversial so your nonnina will probably not care much unless she expects some cream of the crop product that also touches upon odd topics. Strictly talking about this case the movie seems to have been restored due to being directed by a communist called Arau (who was a good comedian in its time) in association with a team chuck full of jews pushed back then by the mainstream, the most famous being Emmanuel Lubezki who had one of its uncles as the part of the jury who gave the movie a lot of national prizes. That's the reason i think the movie was a candidate, the politics are there along with being a heavily-prized movie forgotten in time by the viewers and even the continental scene (latin american i mean). For example 1974's Calzonzin Inspector, an older movie by Arau is a much more notorious example piece of cinema than Como Agua, mainly because it humorously touched on a strong topic in its days, the characters are kinda memorable, became an unexpected hit outside the country and wasn't in its home turf because the government shadow banned it due to showcasing rulers' numerous bad decisions as malicious rather than honest mistakes. It was shown briefly in cinemas then only found in bootlegs until 1989 and on TV after 2000's elections. Yet has been ignored by most studios for some reason or another, which leads me and some others to believe CC's decision to pick one over another as a proof they are in cahoots with the usual suspects. Sidestepping the topic, the book was greatly enjoyed by many but the "real" (as in not immigrant) people in the area in which the events of it happens somewhat loathed the book and the author book uses the protagonist's cooking savvy as themes and plot points yet many of the dishes and ingredients are foreign to Piedras Negras which is the town, situated in the northern desert areas yet it seems they are flooded with deep south ingredients and aztec dishes from Central America, much to the chagrin of the IRL local gastronomy circles. The town was picked mainly because of the plot point of being a Revolution War hotspot in which the author, a Mexico City resident in the south, wanted to touch upon often It was even a joke in a comedy show on how aggressive the natives could get back then, a tourist goes to the town and says loud "ah yes, mole sauce with turkey!" in which an old, seemingly-sweet lady replies "and F your mother too, cat-eater" ("y chin-chin a tu madresita, come-gatos"), plays a bit too with the city's catchphrase in recent era for being an immigrant hub: "Ya vayase" (Go away already). It's a classic case, once again, of culture shock/misunderstanding inside the same country, but oh well the people in that city have had worse: Some years ago the mayor (who wasn't a local either) built a replica mayan pyramid in a park. It would be interesting to see movies who moderately depict a place or area and ask the real natives if they liked it, in my personal experience it is a rare occurrence among national cases but it makes me wonder what other cases occur in Asia or Europe. I remember reading the Cretans loved Zorba but i have my suspicions towards that statement, also i recall an obscure case of a serbian movie, i think it was U Ime Naroda, who playfully mocked the mountain serbs (Montenegrins) yet in some reviews, written and on video, they claim they loved it to bits down to the accents.

Thoughts on the works of Sergei M. Eisenstein Anonymous 09/02/2020 (Wed) 20:15:27 No.656 [Reply]
[JW22 ~ 09/03/2019] >Sergei Mikhailovich Eisenstein was a Soviet film director and film theorist, a pioneer in the theory and practice of montage. The son of an affluent architect, Eisenstein attended the Institute of Civil Engineering in Petrograd as a young man. With the fall of the tsar in 1917, he worked as an engineer for the Red Army. In the following years, Eisenstein joined up with the Moscow Proletkult Theater as a set designer and then director. The Proletkult's director, Vsevolod Meyerhold, became a big influence on Eisenstein, introducing him to the concept of biomechanics, or conditioned spontaneity. Eisenstein furthered Meyerhold's theory with his own "montage of attractions"--a sequence of pictures whose total emotion effect is greater than the sum of its parts. He later theorized that this style of editing worked in a similar fashion to Marx's dialectic. Though Eisenstein wanted to make films for the common man, his intense use of symbolism and metaphor in what he called "intellectual montage" sometimes lost his audience. Though he made only seven films in his career, he and his theoretical writings demonstrated how film could move beyond its nineteenth-century predecessor--Victorian theatre-- to create abstract concepts with concrete images. Eisenstein's completed feature films include: Strike (1925) Battleship Potemkin (1925) October: Ten Days That Shook the World (1928) The General Line (1929) Alexander Nevsky (1938) Ivan the Terrible, Part I (1944) Ivan the Terrible, Part II (1945) Incompleted films: ¡Que viva México! (A version was completed, edited, and released in 1979 by Eisenstein's co-director Grigori Aleksandrov) Bezhin Meadow (lost, only exists as a slideshow now) Ivan the Terrible, Part III (what was completed was destroyed)

WWII - The German experience Anonymous 12/14/2020 (Mon) 03:05:57 No.989 [Reply]
Discussion of films/TVs about WWII from the German perspective. Allies movies with comical over-the-top natsee villains not welcome.

>>991 In what films is this notable? Great Patriotic War films have their share of being Hollywood-tier while Germans always make theirs neutral and about the clean Wehrmacht. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_7tEIYveBPQ
>>990 well, the NSDAP were liberators, not conquerors despite the lies we’ve been told by marxists. most russians on the eastern front welcomed the germans because they experienced decades of oppression at the hands of jewish bolsheviks; the same bolsheviks that raped and murdered the russian monarchy in 1910 and then installed communism. https://dailyarchives.org/index.php/history/2189-many-russians-hoped-that-hitler-would-free-them-from-stalin
>>992 >nazis this term is inaccurate and was created by a jewish man with the sole purpose of slandering the NSDAP >war crimes german leaders were tortured into giving false confessions and according to the procedural rules of the nuremburg trials, there was literally a rule (i forget which one exactly but it should not be too hard to find) that stated that “no evidence is required” for those precedings. you should be able to find it here: https://holocaustdeprogrammingcourse.com/ with a source included. those trials were literally kangaroo courts and the germans unironically did nothing wrong
Cross of Iron (1977) is alright, except for the annoyance that amerimutts are cast as Germans. Is there any blackwashing in this? For some reason a kike decided to write it.
You can witness pieces of the German WWII experience firsthand through Eva Braun's personal 8mm film reels, hosted by the National Archives. The reels contain some genuine moments of beauty with families vacationing at a mountain lake for example. It's interesting to see how real people lived in the past, and I can't think of an earlier collection of home movies of this quality. The historical/political aspect is not my primary focus, but the occasional presence of the Nazi inner circle keeps the viewing experience from getting too dull. https://catalog.archives.gov/id/43461 Comprehensive scene breakdown http://www.thirdreichruins.com/eva_movies.htm
