[JW09 ~ 10/27/2019] I saw this short by chance last night and really enjoyed it. Well-executed concept with a distinctive visual style. >Thursday >Dir: Matthias Hoegg / UK / 2010 https://invidio.us/watch?v=HQ1z0Zzqg5U <An everyday love story set in the not so distant future sees blackbirds battling with technology, automatic palm readers and power cuts. I looked for more content from Matthias Hoegg, but found that he's chosen a more profitable career as animator for hire. Still he's done interesting work for various corporate and non-profit clients. https://vimeo.com/matthiashoegg

"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!

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.

>>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.

I watched the Serb film Nacionalna klasa (1979) because I heard the cool theme tune ( https://invidious.private.coffee/watch?v=gMY9L9hJ9rY ) that suggests a racecar driver. The driver turns out to be a deadbeat, an irresponsible 27 year old hoping for glory at the local racetrack while scamming and leeching his way through life. It's hard to empathize with such a selfish louse with few redeeming qualities, so I think this film's popularity (8.4 imdb) is partially nostalgia-based and partially lost in translation. Nacionalna klasa brought to mind Otar Iosseliani's superior Once lived a song-thrush (1970) featuring a similar lazy, parasitic main character. Iosseliani's situation is more comical, showing a timpani player who puts minimal effort into his craft. Given a musical score with a long period of rest, the timpanist leaves the concert hall entirely to (hopefully) return when he's supposed to beat the drums at the concert's finale.

Bad Boy Bubby (1993) This nihilistic comedy about an abused retard stumbling around Adelaide is a thinly-veiled platform for enlightened boomer atheism. At first it's subtly critical of Christianity, but eventually an arch-rationalist leads the titular retard out of a church and into a power plant (a church of science) not to calmly state his worldview but to unleash a frenzied blasphemous diatribe, denying God's existence while damning God at the same time. Later there's a speech about how every religion keeps killing every other religion, and wouldn't society be better if we got rid of that old-fashioned nonsense? Based on reviews, a lot of the audience was lapping this shit up as peak intellectualism. In spite of Rolf de Heer's proto-Redditism, the story is still interesting because it's unpredictable by nature. During the credits I noticed a long list of cinematographers--unbeknownst to me, each scene had been shot by a different one of them. I can't think of another film with this approach, which is seamlessly blended together while producing distinctive visual flairs throughout.

[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.

>>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.

>>3181 Somewhat agreed but there's many excellent videos with only dancing, talking heads or just experimental techniques, usually combining rhythm and/or lyrics with the visual cues. It's music-oriented mini short films after all, narrative or performance. One thing for sure is that i find hard to remember a video i liked that i didn't also like the song, just realized that and it seems hypocritical from my part.
