Open file (18.72 MB 800x480 La 317ème section.mp4)
The French retreat from Indochina was a prototype for the American retreat from Vietnam... similarly La 317ème section was a prototype for Hollywood films like Platoon and Apocalypse Now
>>1691 I wish there was a good English source of the making of this movie, it was pure insanity. They used real bullets as it was cheaper to get during the Vietnam War.

>>1692 >They used real bullets as it was cheaper to get during the Vietnam War. Cool, I wasn't aware of that. I only know Come and See as another film with live ammo. One minor detail I liked about the film was how the Singapore radio station kept interfering with the men's attempts to call for help. The music taunted them with sounds of tranquility from the British colony of Singapore. By contrast the French colonialists were under attack and scrambling for their lives. I still want to see Diên Biên Phú (1992) from the same writer/director.

In this clip from 1997's Gokudō Kuroshakai: 𝘙𝘦𝘪𝘯𝘪-𝘋𝘰𝘨𝘨𝘶 aka Gangster Underworld: Rainy Dog, directed by the workhorse Takashi Miike, we can see the introduction of the nameless character portrayed by the jack-of-all-trades Tomorowo Taguchi, whose (punishment) job is to pursue our protagonist no matter the costs, a so-far unsuccessful task that seems to have taken its toll on our man here as it seems he isn't really good at blending in with the normal civilian population... which is now also quite different from his native land as the protag's exile has made him nest in another country. The not-so-fresh urban setting is showcased camera-wise all along the movie with a combination of unorthodox positions, hazy/bloomy lenses to reflect humidity and wide angle focal lengths, all almost certainly inspired by the works of Hong Kong new action wave cinematographers who were, at this point chronologically, still very fresh and would become Miike's constant stylistic basis. There's even low-framerate sequences in ode to KW-Wong's movies but without the shutter speeds to make the lights "trail" so, a close call there.

>>1730 supposedly fake but they did a very nice job with it
>>1748 >fake source?
>>1749 I'm not >>1748 but if you watch it closely it looks like it was made on a computer and not hand drawn. If it was a historical cartoon it probably would have been known before the last several weeks.
>>1753 >If it was a historical cartoon it probably would have been known before the last several weeks. Not necessarily if it had been lost to time like a lot of things.
>>1755 That's why I said probably. The serendipity of it being discovered during plandemic would be astronomically unlikely. Also, why would this one low resolution recording be the only source? It's because the animator or someone he knew filmed it so that it would be more difficult to see that it was made on a computer. Anyways, it's not a matter of debate. It was probably made on After Effects and anyone who has watched enough animation or made it themselves can differentiate between hand drawn and computer very easily. One of the easiest beats to tell is the bouncing influenza gas can on the cart. The other one that's super obvious is the singing radio. Lips didn't move like that in old cartoons. The animator clearly had his different mouth shapes for pronunciations, making the radio look more like something from South Park than old Mickey Mouse. When the camera tracks horizontally it's also easy to tell that the background depth was done via a computer. And more generally, all of the characters, in their movements, exhibit a single looping quality that older cartoons didn't have; old cartoons would have loops of course but they usually were more complex, involving a choregraphed sequence of different, progressing loops. Basically: one guy made this and was very intelligent in how he made it, making it seem more complex than it actually is. A question that I don't know the answer to: Does it not seem really short compared to most cartoons from the early '30s? In no way am I dissing the short for not being a historical artifact. I think it's great that someone is making protest art, and very well made art at that. I wish more people were doing this. If anything, it's more inspiring based on the fact that it was probably made earlier this year.
>>1757 >Anyways, it's not a matter of debate >UGH, I DECIDED AND MY DECISION IS FINAL M'KAY! fuck off
>>1758 It's not my decision, it's just an obvious fact.

>>1758 >Get schooled on how it may have been a contemporary invention >"Yeah nah brah fuck off" The fact you couldn't come with any semblance of counterargument other than a projection makes it more egregious. This isn't /co/, buddy
>>1763 Propaganda in action. Make an obviously fake cartoon, retards say its proof vaccines are bad then the "fact checkers" come in and save the day. Also "fact checkers" literally lie.

Here's a webm to make things on-topic, i swear i posted this before but i can't find the thread so here goes again. A somewhat pretentious but technically interesting experimental movie about a real-life football association player in one of the last matches of his career, Zinedine Zidane, widely considered the most elegant player of his generation and among the most technically-gifted (or technically-trained like an old coach of his said) in the history of the filmed sport. Zidane, un Portrait du 21e Siècle or A 21st Century Portrait has nebulous reasons for its existence, production-wise, because the ones who used the Real Madrid Club's installations in other movies (like Goal) don't seem to be involved here, it's the technical work of an Iranian-French dude who put tons of high-budget cameras around the stadium to film the movements and personality of the Algerian-French player, considered an icon in the Arab World despite not being a proper muslim, because it seems he just could and/or the president of the club at the moment, Fiorentino Perez, was very fond of the berber man and had a knack for finding commercial deals for his players. Also present in the film's production is the post-rock band Mogwai doing the soundtrack, which is okay i guess. Back in the day some clubs had "running" cameramen in the sidelines who captured plays while centered on the player rather than today's panning from a tripod, sometimes these crews had the cool idea of lowering the camera height which resulted in waist-level, if not lower, footage that made them look like classic action sequences and this movie does have some of those. A decent document from a golden era of the sport with one of its shining protagonists. Famous for his explosive temperament when the opponent bullied him or one of his teammates around, Zidane was send-off in the filmed match near the end while defending a mate of his, Beckham, in a pre-brawl and giving a much-suspected made-up drama for the film but as far as those involved he didn't know which match was going to be filmed and when informed it was the one against Villareal he got pissed and ashamed, considering he was retired by that point. Also always found ironic how the film didn't screen at Cannes despite being the player's hometown for many years. >>1769 >Also "fact checkers" literally lie. Fact checkers are the definition of jewish legalese exercises, they do not lie per se but omit crucial details under a sea of terms that might imply an opposite reality, but when read strictly technically they often don't say anything. It's a semantics fest, they attack hyperbole statements or the background of the one who brought forward the information, sometimes they don't if it doesn't help their bias. I like to think the people employed at those sites are apprentice lawyers doing tests on how to obfuscate hard cases and making the viewers, a de-facto jury, lean towards their side despite evidence. Total lack of morals and values, like a good lawyer.
>>1769 I don't know if it goes that deep in this case because the propaganda is already unreal, but useful idiots are useful. >>1770 That's lying.

William Dieterle's Juarez gives surprisingly favorable treatment to Maximilian, even as he explains how monarchy is superior to democracy
