I posted this link on endchan a few weeks ago. The post was lost during their downtime so here it is again. <It was the only movie made by Forough Farrokhzad. <A documentary of 20 minutes length; actually it is a documentary only at the first level of meaning: the disturbing images from a leper colony are meditated in verses that partner what's flowing on the screen. Fragments from Psalms, from Koran, from her own poetry. And her stanzas, sometimes in sync with the images, some times in counterpoint, always challenging the versets from the sacred books. One of the greatest poets of the twentieth century, that's what I believe Forough Farrokhzad is. <This movie is a cinematic poem: empathy for the extreme suffering, desolation that we cannot escape from our condition, and, in the same time, awe in face of the beauty of creation. https://mega.nz/#!m8QTyCSY!r2mifCKEnmUL0xB3cmhWLqgJKAaQrt7ktM-Z89J1o0I
Did anyone happen to import this DVD of City of Pirates to their mega account? I downloaded part and then forgot about it. Now the link is dead. Archive of old thread: https://web.archive.org/web/20190722053732/https://8ch.net/film/res/4115.html
>>278 Thank you very much for that. A vhs copy of Ombre from 1980 by Cavedon just arrived, I will try to digitize it and share it, maybe also restore it
Deseos AKA Desire (1977) Fragmented Mexi-Western with elements of Catholicism and surrealism. Directed by Jodorowsky's cinematographer Rafael Corkidi. Only available as this VHS source, possibly open-matte. mega.nz/#!2whhjYYA!SZbRuZe9OWGTNxf057EpaDMRVp5L9YI55jXrctTKdK0
>>281 Thank you for this, I tried to upload an edit to YT but its been nuked about 15 times, even with my shitty copyright evasion watermark, ironic since I got the footage from YT itself Somehow I find myself being more and more drawn into the year 1977, one of those "not-coincidences" you know?
>>282 >I tried to upload an edit to YT but its been nuked about 15 times Wow, that's surprising. I'm surprised they would delete it, or recognize any part of a movie that's so unknown. If someone has made a copyright claim, when are they going to release a proper commercial version?
>>283 Hmm interesting, looks like the one video I took (and every other upload) was deleted, probably because of the same copyright reason. But there's this other one Pafnucio Santo https://youtu.be/cSLf14aUHpA and this INSANE comparison of resolutions for another film https://youtu.be/k7nZOZ1RDyw
>>284 So a telecom company owns the rights. They probably have a big list of films for takedown on youtube. América Móvil is a huge corporation but I wonder where, if anywhere, they would potentially broadcast Deseos? I remember someone posted Corkidi's Angeles y Querubines on 8ch*n. Might as well repost here since the link still works: https://mega.nz/#!jwgB0RYC!tjNSOe9uH7u7CjzklG8q6Xuz9afGv-N20cPHS6ddxhE
Sergey Bondarchuk's WATERLOO (1970) came out on bluray recently but here's a FAN CUT https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0F5zEHVl3tE This full HD version has been sped corrected to 24fps. Using stills and exerts from the script to indicate four short scenes that never made the final cut of the film. Some notes: Scene 1. The battle of Ligny. Looking at the script, the french army marching past the windmill used later in the film, looks like it was meant to be used as the battle of Ligny. Blucher is on the march! The Prussian cavalry charge used later in the film was almost certainly meant to be used earlier. In the film the images are ‘flopped’ so the charge goes from left to right, to maintain screen direction. In the battle scenes the french generally attack right to left and the allies left to right. This is good film direction. The scenes were almost certainly moved later to beef up the Prussians arriving at the end of the battle. In the Fan cut the ‘corrected’ charge then goes to a still of Blucher unhorsed. This explains why he is wounded a few scenes later. Scene. 2. Wellington and Mercer discuss why his guns are aimed at a hollow in the ground. This explains why the french horses appear to fall over a crevasse in the next scene. Scene. 3. In the script a messenger rides to tell Napoleon that the farm house has fallen, then promptly dies. These pictures appear to be that scene. Certainly Napoleon looks very similar in the next scene. Scene 4. Wellington and Blucher meet. Cutting this scene into the film it was very obvious why it was cut. The triumphalism seems at odds with the sombre mood created in the finished scene. That said it does payoff the narrative of Napoleon nemesis.
Damn I just noticed that worldscinema has been posting free links instead of premium.
I just posted this on 8kun, but figured I should post it here as well. Does anyone have a link for Queen Kelly (1929)? The only one I can find has italian title cards
>>289 I was going to take a copy from a certain locked site but i found another in the open web that seems to have english cards, in the intro as technicals and in the movie itself as intertitles. Haven't downloaded it entirely yet but i suppose the rest is in english too, cannot hear any audio so i don't know about that orchestral score. Is that what you searched for or are they just in the beginning? I can give you the hash but if you want i can upload it in a direct site like MF, ZS or even MGnz (the latter has a daily limit)
>>289 >>290 I uploaded it last night anyway. I think a PTP mod made this rip and he was not very meticulous about his work. Silent films are tricky to rip because you should restore the original framerate, which varies from film to film. The ripper didn't do that so there's interlacing in this mkv. Also it's oversized. But so far no one has made a better rip. https://mega.nz/#!GwBF3aIa!U08dwML4njVNVcZOgNcj6VQSegRZSw7PknRPi08qUtU pass: /film/ I watched the first 20 minutes and Queen Kelly has a definite pre-code subversiveness
>>290 >>291 Thanks bro, I really appreciate it
>>291 You beat me, my version just finished downloading. I read in another site the same comments regarding fps, so i grabbed one in the open and looks decent, it had audio after all but much lower resolution than yours and i think the same fps issues. That 540p accentuates the tasty pictorial glow/out of focus vibe much better.
I couldn't find these anywhere. >The Night Bus - Kiumars Pourahmad >Eagles - Samuel Kachikian >Big Drum Under Left Foot - Kazem Masoumi
>>294 >Big Drum Under Left Foot - Kazem Masoumi This looks interesting and I'm surprised it not available in more places. I just heard how the Iran/Iraq War was a brutal fight like WWI because it involved trenches and gas. You probably saw this? The video works but you need an account for subtitles, maybe they want you to pay for them. https://www.imvbox.com/watch-persian-movie-iranian-movies/big-drum-under-left-foot-table-bozorg-zire-paye-chap

Anyone have Thérèse (1986)? https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0092090/
does anyone have "Illuminated Texts" (1982) by Bruce Elder?
>>299 should have english subs on there http://nitroflare.com/watch/F78D0EE67A525D8/Th%C3%A9r%C3%A8se.mkv if that other link doesn't work this one should mega.nz/#!uZZFDC4Z!VS4CkyTDanU2emXlg8tCPGxXfMIMpy7rhXvUIaGa_TM
>>300 If there's no existing link I can upload it. I have to say Illuminated Texts an excellent film. Since you mention it I want to nominate it for the top 250. On the old board I mentioned how I'm always disappointed by Mekas. He doesn't do anything interesting with his footage, he has no interesting observations about life, and his original music is grating. By contrast, Illuminated Texts arranges personal footage in a manner that's exponentially more engaging. The editing does not linger on any subject longer than it should, so you truly get "moments of beauty" instead of the experience of being stuck watching interminable vacation slides. The "illuminated texts" are short passages from classical literature and poetry that briefly appear onscreen. I suppose Elder inserts some of his own writings as well; I haven't actually read background information about the film.
>>301 Got it, thanks very much!
>>302 if you could upload it I would be super grateful! do you also have his other films from region one of his The Book of All the Dead film cycle? in particular "Lamentations: A Monument for the Dead World" ?
>>294 >Eagles - Samuel Kachikian is this it here? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2QGy_sb8nnA don't know what you can do about subtitles though
>>304 OK here is Illuminated Texts mega.nz/#F!swpxWajA!7N1bO59UZEQvtqs_dO-1eQ Lamentations 1+2 is 12GB and my connection is pretty slow, maybe someone else can post it?
>>306 Thank you for Illuminated Texts. Also I don't mind waiting for however long for Lamentations.
>>279 this should work mega.nz/#F!mBo1ARLI!M3pUeSDMqHQfvqaanS6ibA
>>308 Cool, thanks a lot
does anyone have Harvest (1967) directed by Carroll Ballard? https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0061750/

Looking for the 275 min miniseries version of Talvisota (1989)
>>315 Full miniseries is ripped as Talvisota.Osa.1.1989.DVBrip.Pekka.Parikka.avi + the other 4 parts I can't find any live torrents though. So maybe Dailymotion is the only place for it
>>314 here is childs garden- haven't got elementary phrases- maybe someone else could upload it if they had it mega.nz/#!GcYQyKRB!fkG9AXhLQL7ykU8B01YUwc_x-9wrFL7_Dxt9jF7jf8s
>>316 >>317 Damn, I will just watch the movie then, I don't want to bother with an old pan and scan TV recording when the series is available on DVD.
>>306 do you think you would still be able to upload lamentations? i've been looking for it everywhere and still can't find it

does anyone have Remains to be Seen (1989) https://letterboxd.com/film/remains-to-be-seen-1989/
>>324 At which point does the TV become too small? I only have a 24 inch monitor
>>332 that clip came out in 2007 so im pretty sure he meant don't watch videos like pic related. a monitor is better than a laptop which is better than a phone. so i'd say you would be fine
>>332 >Not watching films on your 77 inch OLED

I was curious if anyone had the blu ray rip off this movie, split directed by Chris Shaw?

Looking for Ah Ying (1983) https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0085144/ If anyone can find it I appreciate it.
>>343 mega.nz/file/icUTjCRI#h3W3kVU9OOuoKOSts7h2eM5pwUbIx7SaxoqlybTabiw VCD quality (very poor)
>>344 >VCD quality (very poor) But still very watchable. I just finished the whole movie, thanks. Something like Ah Ying is a product of its time, a nice snapshot of the earlier days of the Hong Kong New Wave. I've been watching some Hong Kong movies over the past couple of days because Boat People was featured on tvch's weekly film club last week. When I was watching Ah Ying I was reminded of Stephen Chow's The New King of Comedy which has a similar plot of a young woman who aspires to be a big actress, though I think Chow's The New King of Comedy is a little more refined and updated. In The New King of Comedy there's an audition sequence near the end of the movie, where main character acts out a scene from earlier in the movie where she broke up with her boyfriend, so the movie cuts between her audition and the scene from earlier where she broke up with her boyfriend but the character is playing both herself and her boyfriend in a dual role. So I thought something like that was really cool, showing how people draw from real world experiences in order to act and bring out feeling. But people gave The New King of Comedy a lot of flak for being a commercialized movie with a lot of product placement, Tencent stuff etc, cheaply made. I think Ah Ying and The New King of Comedy are both good movies but I prefer something like The New King of Comedy a little more because of that dual role scene which sticks out in my mind much more.
>>345 I wondered about the flac audio but here's the explanation from the source. The original version had a dub on the right channel. So the uploader fixed that problem while preserving the original audio quality. When skipping through the file I thought noticed some audio artifacts, not sure if that can happen during mp3>flac conversion. He also explains why the why this film is so rare and how it's unlike most other HK cinema (like you mentioned).
Does anyone have Makino's 2017 film "At the Horizon" ?
>>347 I don't see it anywhere, too bad https://www.25fps.hr/en/film/at-the-horizon https://makinotakashi.net/work_at_the_horizon.html The distribution site http://www.sixpackfilm.com/ is not loading for me right now. They are involved with the Index DVD series.
>>348 Site loads just fine for me
>>347 What do you like from Makino? I haven't explored very much of his work. I'd love to see his films screened in a proper theatre instead of my computer/TV.
Looking for La beauté du monde (1999) and Amour d'enfance (2001), dir. Yves Caumon
Does anyone have Han Ye (aka Cold Nights)? It's a 1955 film directed by Lee Sun-Fung. It makes multiple best of lists, but it doesn't seem to exist online anywhere.
>>352 It must have screened in US theatres at some point to get on those lists? I can't find it online either. There are open requests for Han-ye on KG and PTP It might have been on youtube, but deleted within the last year https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MTWp1H1PJ6s
Anyone have this restored version? Rare Thai classic film. There are VHS Rips available but with worse quality. Really thankful if anyone could dig this up. PS- Another name for this movie - The Scar, 1977

I'll keep my eyes peeled >>352 I saw the archived thread on the other place. Don't know how the youtube video came to be. I also emailed HK archives just to see what possibilities there are of obtaining it.
If there are any screenwriters who visit /film/, this may be of interest. https://mega.nz/file/dJBjEAYb#sP7XmPAnorDz1e8yQ-7CFDPOgJkAll-Vg0VL8UDKZ8A They are a bunch of unreleased S. Craig Zahler screenplays (and a couple that have been made). His movies are trash but you might get something out of it.
>>680 Highly useful, thanks a lot. This will come handy as an example in practice for some screenplay PDFs i have around.
>>680 >His movies are trash How dare you

If you don't like me, I can tell you I don't like you either.'' Source from a few places. This WSJ slideshow is paywalled unfortunately https://www.wsj.com/articles/SB10001424127887324766604578459254056340168 https://www.bam.org/film/2013/booed-at-cannes https://www.artforum.com/film/melissa-anderson-on-booed-at-cannes-at-bamcinematek-40769 > One boos a film at Cannes because one is at Cannes and booing is what happens there. Wanting to participate in this tetchy convention often reveals behavior more masochistic than sadistic: Two years ago, a colleague, rather than leave a film he despised very early on, stayed through all 127 minutes of it just so he could join the chorus of boos at the end. Sometimes, though, the vicious responses are genuine manifestations of near-pathological rage at the filmmaker, as I witnessed in 2009, when Lars von Trier, whose Antichrist had screened the night before to a din of jeers, was booed—at his own press conference.
>>727 >stayed through all 127 minutes of it just so he could join the chorus of boos at the end It's not like they can join another room and the point of the festival is to judge, most of the people there are not even enthusiasts but the toughest critics, merchants scooping talent, craftsmen and the film staff themselves. Hence the air of elitism but also high standards (at least back then) strange that some experienced directors don't realize that. I keep reading bad stuff from the festival in recent years so i don't know what to say, i am seeing politics and ego appeasement have taken a hold on the most popular festivals. Berlin is a far-left stronghold with its liberal critics and standards, Venice is a Hollywood distribution hub enclave with its explicit award handouts between friends (Shape of Water and Roma, Al Pacino and James Franco winning honorary prizes for their "masterful contribution to the world of cinema in directing") and Cannes became a red carpet/fashion runway that made most of their nominees pay their own expenses to travel to the festival and the judges have no credentials to do such a duty. >>722 >>723 It's a nip movie, so probably a translation for hikikomori that aged ironically. Let's see if i can pull it out from somewhere, it doesn't have seeders so it might take a while.
