[JW05 ~ 05/10/2020] Iranian cinema warrants its own thread as the style of them and their directors are distinct enough to stand out and level up with Europeans. The 5 movies here are classics or well-known to start with. The Death of Yazdgerd recalls the kangaroo court upon a family of accusing the refuging last shah of the Sassanian dynasty. Where Is the Friend's Home details a child trying to give his friend his homework he took on accident lest his friend be expelled. Atom Heart Mother is some paranormal mystery thriller during the recession I didn't have subtitles for it. Ballad of Tara is about a women giving away her grandfather's possessions to her village as she can't keep them but finds no one who will accept his shamshir. The Night Bus is about an Iranian prisoner convoy of Arab POWs in 1983 during the Iran-Iraq War.

I love Iranian cinema. I hope I can revive this thread with some discussion about this very interesting national cinema. I think in it, we see some of the better examples of post-modern filmmaking. My favourite Iranian film is The Taste of Cherry, which won the Palme D'Or in 1997. It is a fantastic film on its on, but I think the ending elevates it. I'm talking about how after being immersed in the story of Badii's life for the length of the film, Kiarostami chooses to break that immersion by showing us documentary-style clips of them filming some scenes. It blends fiction with reality in a perfect way to emphasise the closeness of the two. Kiarostami believes that works of fiction can be just as reflective and honest as documentaries. By using this documentary style at the end, Kiarostami is showing that the events you saw are just as equally a documentary, as a work of fiction, and insisting upon its meaning The blending of fiction and reality is recurring in the work of Kiarostami. We can look to his film Close Up, which is part documentary, part fictional drama. It uses those once embroiled in a criminal case against each other, as actors to tell the story. He tells a real-life documentary story using the real-life people who were involved, as actors. All the while he mixes in court footage of the proceedings. It's a bit hard to explain, but it is a very compelling story that gets you questioning the line between documentary, fiction, and reality. Another example in Kiarostami's films is at the beginning of "Through the Olive Trees", where some actors introduce themselves (pic rel). Although the intersection of reality and fiction is something that we see not only in Kiarostami, but in other Iranian directors too (who were no doubt influenced by him - he is generally considered the best Iranian director). A notable example of this can be found in the work of Jafar Panahi. Taxi Tehran follows Panahi as he drives a taxi around Tehran. We see a myriad of interactions, some real, some scripted/acted, all however, using people who aren't actors. Another good film of his is "This is Not a Film", which he made to protest the Iranian government who banned him from making films (and I think maybe also leaving his property). It was smuggled from Iran to Cannes on a USB hidden inside a cake. Iranian films approach some really high-concept difficult questions about art in a really grounded way. Perhaps due to not often using professional actors (Kiarostami for one thought you could get better performances out of untrained people). Their post-modern approach is really refreshing compared to some western post-modern films that I find can be indulgent, leaning too heavily into 'breaking the modernist rules', leaving behind something shallow. Though I suppose that's part of the point - it doesn't have to be meaningful or even have meaning. I could talk more, but I think I'll leave it there for now. Please post your favourite Iranian films or suggestions as a reply to this post.
>>1255 The Taste of Cherry was the first iranian film i saw, mainly because of the whole Palme d'Or thing. I remember suffering greatly seeing it because it was a very slow burner, all the emotions are subdued and especially considering the protagonist who was completely numb to the world surrounding him. I was very young so definitely not used to slow movement but i think i would feel unnerved by its speed again if i watched it today even when i really enjoyed the concept and dialogue itself, especially the "ironic" ending. >Spoiler I don't remember that, maybe it's the outtakes and bonus clips plastered at the end? or some sort of director's cut because i recall the runtime being exclusive to the plot, quite short too i think it was under 90 minutes but felt like 3 hours. Now that you mention it i recall remembering some clip on how the director/cinematographer was all compacted into the passenger's seat trying not to appear in the shot but doing so anyways, and the protag's actor taking the piss making rough corners to bother him. Was that in the film itself? i don't think i would've searched for that on Youtube, especially back then in 2008. Some beautiful shots at times have to say, especially when he visits the mine's (?) guard in the small watchtower.
>>1256 Here's the ending and final scene in question: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9DQ8GPzMIPs It is very much intended to be in the film, and part of the film/your experience with the film. Some really didn't appreciate the ending (from memory, Ebert despised it) but I think it perfectly encapsulates a recurring theme in Kiarostami's films in a much simpler way. That watchtower scene is very beautiful and simple. It is an austere film, but I wouldn't quite say minimalist. That's something I like about it - the film isn't indulgent, but is still rich in characterisation, shot composition, and meaning.
Dariush Mehrjui is an interesting Iranian director who hasn't been mentioned yet. Mehrjui studied film and philosophy UCLA before returning to Tehran to begin his career. He kickstarted the Iranian New Wave with Gaav AKA The Cow (1969), a film smuggled out of the country to critical acclaim at the Venice Film Festival. It examines a poor villager's relationship with his prized possession, the one thing that gives him joy: his cow. While the film isn't quite perfect, I was hooked by the layered story of poverty, psychosis and mysticism told with striking black and white cinematography.

>>1276 Good job. I imagine that HTTrack will simply update the already-saved location with just the new additions if you figure it out correctly Anon. So, do you have any plans how to help /film/ community out if 8kun is deplatformed completely? I assume this is the new home.
>>1276 I think i saved the PDFs but i mixed them with some i have, so i wouldn't worry about that very much.
>>1277 >do you have any plans how to help /film/ community out if 8kun is deplatformed completely? In what way? I was planning to share what I've saved when I get finished.
>>1277 >I assume this is the new home. I personally thought this (and Julay's version before) was the new spot since a little more than a year now. I don't think 8kun getting the cut will affect the board a lot if HTTrack anon achieved it, unless i missed dozens of posts that did not update in the front page on the old place. But if anything it will be to our advantage since the few outside will be redirected here, the new problem would be choosing a new bunker and the options that allow new boards don't seem promising: A place suspected of being a honeypot due to its untrustworthy leaders and a place made by the people who helped bust the site we previously used and feel good for it. I would rather bet on crashing on someone's board or making our own webring site. In the former i would say 4feuilles /art/ seems like an ok place if we want to keep going on with the joke about being francophilic cinema buffs, in the latter i have no idea how to set one but i couldn't imagine it being that expensive, i wouldn't mind handing out some dough for it as it seems it is the only considerable starting obstacle taking into account some admins and places have been very open on how to help anons about opening such a venture (excluding the Dolphin of course). The problem would be the security measures to avoid that place from getting knocked out, there's been a couple of promising sites who got cleaned out in a week due to DDoS attacks from unknown parties and the owners just rescinding from their efforts in frustration. Hell, it seems that /art/ board got deleted yesterday due to lack of use, so i guess we would have to think of somewhere else.
>>1279 >I was planning to share what I've saved when I get finished. That will do. Managing to 'share' 6+ GB of data will take a little thoughtful planning. Maybe you can get the site Admins to help you out with it over in >>>/meta/ >>1280 I hope you can figure it out Anon. Having your own site would be desirable, but comes with a boatload of issues/mgmt requirements. Probably easier just to stay here, and then approach one of the other, non-honeypot sites on the webring itself and ask for a bunkerboard setup.

How to like films again? Anonymous 09/02/2020 (Wed) 20:07:50 No.649 [Reply]
[JW21 ~ 01/12/2020] Growing up I always enjoyed watching films, but when I got older I started studying film and it tainted my movie-going experience permanently. It used to be that movies had a magical, escapist quality to them for me. But now when I watch a movie I can't help but criticize and analyse it in my mind. I can't stop myself from being taken out of immersion. It's no longer a fun past time, but a chore. It's very frustrating for me, because I just want to get absorbed into a story and forget about everything for 90 minutes, but I can't. Has anyone else here faced this problem?

>>1267 >Is it weird to talk over movies while you watch them? No of course not. And yes, please don't do so in a theater filled with strangers. Being able to drink some wine and enjoy a movie together with a friend or two each babbling on about it is a fun pleasure, and can actually help you get to know each other better. (This can turn out to be bad or good either way ofc). Some of my fondest memories are watching ridiculous b-tier cult flicks with my best friend, laughing together at the absurdities.
>>1269 go back to cuckchan
>>1270 I was on cuckchan before you were born.
>>1267 Happened to me, that's why i started posting on /film/ because i had very few friends in contact whom i could talk about it. Had the luck to have one that recommended me decent stuff at an early age but it wasn't until college that i could find likeminded people, they are still top-tier friends but even before this pandemic i rarely could talk about movies because they got sucked into work life, paying taxes and such. And to make things worse i don't watch films anymore, i download them but never sit down to watch them due to my eternal college struggles and sidetracking with other hobbies. I did watch some low-brow stuff and somewhat got fond of it hence why i will start a thread about it in the near future to dump in some observations about certain aspects, peasant action cinema does have some redeemable qualities in its technical aspects along with unorthodox procedures to cut costs.
>>1267 It really depends, if its a movie i want to take seriously and i will watch it alone, there are other movies though that aren't very good and the only enjoyment you'll get out of them is by sharing the experience. >>1269 Wine sounds pretty gay, in any case i do the same but with the devil's lettuce, fun times too.

>>1130 >Those old but "expensive" Yugo productions, the latin american strange but creative late-night dramas (not the soap stuff) Very intriguing, do you know of any that are worth the time? I'm really only aware that Raul Ruiz made some miniseries for Chilean tv good taste with Rene, who is?
Open file (58.84 KB 550x350 Hora-marcada02.jpg)
>>1136 Yes, by expensive i meant they either blew all their allotted money in the cast due to most of them being ensemble works that "rented" the in-house theater residents for long periods of time rather than being a single one-time film job or went all-out with the sets which usually were WWII nazi soldier massacre porn that was/is still popular by some. If my old notepad is not wrong i listed some recommendations and stuff i found to have high potential: 1980's Vruc Vetar, 1995's Slozna Braca, 1984's Sivi Dom, 1991's Zaboravljeni, 1990's Aleksa Santic, 1976's Vise Od Igre, 1995's Kraj Dinastije Obrenovic and 1972's Kamiondzije, there's also the old war stuff with 1974's Otpisani. I put 1970's Diplomci there too, it looks cheap as hell but i suppose i placed it there because the main cast are most of my preferred actors from the Belgrade circle. With these yugo series i think only the writing quality is of concern because i have yet to this day see a balkan production pre-breakup with bad or even average acting, they always nail a good balance between scenery-chewing and reflective stoicism along with some dark humor, it comes down to personal tastes regarding actors and their specific character polishing or sometimes the humor paint job a writer wants to do (juvenile and cringe comedy is usually a writer's fault rather than actor's delivery). The ones made in the war i don't know, yugos are not known for their set design but values seem to plummet hard around that time, fake mustaches (!) included. It's worth nothing i haven't seen any of these because i have never found subtitles or download links for some, so after a while i stopped searching but nowadays there might be some advances. The latin american thing is a personal experience as i saw some stuff late at night that i have never seen or read again and they were quite mind-bending for me back then, i recall an argentine series or mini-series in which the characters were in a house, and while going from room to room the whole set lifted and another came by instead of just walking or the camera cutting to another shot, it was bizarre but somehow it worked because the acting was as quirky due to the narrative being some sort of family drama about inane things, kinda like a sitcom acted in deadpan. I also recall one, while not a fiction work, to be very interesting that i think was called Sicilia Desechable which was about the well-read host (a journalist surnamed Sicilia) talking how he will try to make the most interesting night show with varied content on a shoestring budget, i think he only had 20 bucks every episode, and just went onto trying to teach the audience something while also trying to get into free music shows/musicians playing on the street or anything he could think of to save money and about anything you could think of to entertain or fill minutes into the show. Most often he didn't even spend money so he saved it to other episodes, mind you this was in Venezuela just when the revolts and some small military skirmishes happened against parts of the population including the police thus criminals started to roam, around 2002-2004, so it came to a point he never went out of his house and just tried to explain/do stuff, like trying to imitate the tests of cleaning products from commercials or boil down Coca-Cola, until one day he just gave up and said that not even with money you could do things because shit was hitting the fan. He was criticized for trying to stir shit even when one of his rules was never meddle with politics but in the end he kinda was right, i saw the program years later of its original broadcast and it was always funny in a tragic way to see how the guy slowly realizes society was crumbling because everyone was paranoid and public trust was at some point non-existent; dude was quite revolutionary too, he was technically vlogging for a living in 2003 and did make a controversial joke about some trannies in a corner he filmed from far in a hotel room "you might laugh at those things now, but if we let our guards down they will rise to the top and crush us, society, in resentment". He was basically shitposting once a week on national (international) TV with no content limits. 1986's La Hora Marcada was also something interesting, a Twilight/Outer Limits latinamerican rip-off that was used as a medium to push or give experience to young directors and technicians, supposedly had some good episodes and i did see a couple but didn't find it to be that captivating although some people swear by it, for horror junkies it might be a goldmine. There might be more but you got me in a curve, actually never tried to list those so i guess i will from now on.

>>1136 Hell sorry about that lack of spacing. >good taste with Rene, who is? I named it Rene.jpg for Renegade, tons of stuff to talk about that fast food show, the chick is the aforementioned protag's girlfriend and the main plot of the show is him searching who wanted to kill him but got her a steel point to the head instead. Everytime he's about to score with a lady (which is very often) he will have a nasty flashback about either banging her on the beach or getting shot thus limiting his libido dramatically. Funny how almost all that footage of the beach bumming never repeats, implying they rolled lots of film to use, now that's a sweet job. Her name seems to be Deprise Brescia and looks like she was a premium piece of eye candy for commercials and Aerobics videos back then, and yeah i remember seeing a commercial made by the gay jew Ritts that had her around. They simply don't make 'em they used to.
>>1130 >If you keep having trouble i can fix you another joint, probably Mega but those put 1GB+ limits on downloaders, i'll think of something.

This is a strange request but it's been haunting me because I had the video in my hands and I didn't download it in time before they took it down for uuuhhh... political reasons? I guess Benigni angered alot of religious people by giving a speech about sex in the bible (most of the Italian populus is religious) The entire thing was displayed in HD on the RaiPlay website, 30+ minutes, and I think they took it down after a day or two. This was back in February so I was hoping someone had archived the thing or downloaded the upload. The only evidence there is of the upload is the dead link and this MSN website (pic related) that linked directly to the RaiPlay upload, it even shows the original length. www.raiplay.it/iframe/video/2020/02/sanremo-2020-roberto-benigni-il-cantico-dei-cantici-99002db8-7f1c-4266-88d6-489da47261a0.html

This week I've been watching American animation from the early sound era. Although I like the "rubber hose" aesthetic, most of the shorts are not very impressive. It's best to stick to the well-known material from this period or you'll be disappointed. I did enjoy this short from Ub Iwerks depicting a bizarre cloud city where every person, plant, object is a balloon. Balloon Land (1935) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ebheRwzy8_Q For contrast here's a much weaker effort from Ub, only interesting because of mildly offensive racial caricature.

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.

Hitler's Steel Beast (1 episode; 2016) – a pretty decent French documentary about Hitler's personal train. Thankfully it focuses on the train itself and not muh evil natsees or jews and is therefore watchable. I didn't even know there was a plot to assassinate Hitler by poisoning his drinking water reservoir in the train with a toxin that takes effect only after 6-7 days to fool his food taster.

I’m gonna have to watch some /lolicore/ over Christmas just to know that some Redditors are seething over the kino I will be absorbing
>>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.

[JW04 ~ 05/22/2020] A special place for a small-format video field dedicated, once upon a time, to video technique experiments, unorthodox art directions and/or kinetic performances. As previously discussed this is a genre who has gotten a bit harsher to collect and research, there's some ways to start amassing a personal stash in a reliable way and check information regarding content creators, but in recent times these have gotten limited. The IMVDb site is a good place to start although it seems its staff activity has halted, at least considering that community entries have been on hold for a year now, so it should probably be taken as an introductory resource rather than a golden rule. Archive.org also features "small" batches of standard quality files, so it's also a most-see for new adventurers. Featured here is one of the early products made by the famous Ninja Tune label, as the founders of said company Coldcut made a collaboration with Hexstatic to create a small Audiovisual single that shows the very early and pioneering technology of their own real-time video manipulation software, something also called video scratching as it remixes and manipulates video as it were a vinyl on a disc jockey table, with audio included. Something that just very recently has been considered a normal mark in video sites, and mostly as an evolution of golden age Youtube Poop which is at its earliest around 2007; Coldcut made Timber in 1997. It also comes a decade after the same guys were already written in history with gold for popularizing and somewhat creating the standard of pausing cassettes, cutting the tape at that point, taping it over cheap copies of the same recording, doing it several times with several things and ending up with a frankenstein tape that basically invented the UK Garage scene along with the Big Beat scene, and by default the Remix style of musicianship, something that in a very short time would be refined and raised as an art by artists such as Todd Edwards. Highly criticized these days due to being seen as careless for the decline of the cult electronica label that was Ninja Tune, the Coldcut duo is somehow still underrated even when their influence has been omnipresent.

>>735 Probably but i think their limit is 50gigs, Anonfiles has a 100 but doesn't guarantees anything. One can be browsed easily but the other packs more punch, but i think i will do a pastebin and throw some Anonfile links with a couple of accounts so they last at least some months more, it's not like i'm going to delete the videos from my drive so when the time comes i will just reupload again. It's just that i was thinking of some sort of better UI rather than a plain notepad. >Spheres Very pretty, looks like The Quiet Earth ending death scene
>>762 >pastebin >srsly even thinking of this after their level of open, blatant pozz now Anon, pls. At the least use one of the many crypto bins, eg https://privatebin.net/
Biting Elbows - Bad Mutherfucker https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fX37ehy4-2k I've only just seen this but it's worth posting here Violent and bloody FPS music vid from Ilya Naishuller, director of Hardcore Henry which follows the same style and is also on youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9YZIQILvJDY
>>1211 I'm out of the loop regarding hosting sites, so pardon the ignorance. I guess i was going to use ZeroBin but PrivateBin seems to work the same, anyways i will soon soon-ish download those videos and then i will see where to host, right now i need tackle some hard drive memory issues because i think i have too much porn and not enough space for the potential 100GB archive. >>1223 Not surprising to see that movie's director doing music videos, the rule of stylish directors having their affinity/origin in the music video scene is again seen but i do wonder why so few found relative success when Hollywood is all about style over substance. Perhaps they did not sell themselves or made a big favor to someone?
>>1238 I do not know the general consensus, but I think music videos offer more freedom to some mavericks. Chris Cunningham, for example, was going to direct a screen adaptation for Neuromancer, but he left the project because he wouldn't get final cut approval. So yeah, some of them don't sell out. Some people still have dignity, unlike the poser >>733 mentioned.
