>Never heard of Solid Misogynistic Roughie.

That's not the name of the movie...the imdb reviewer used that phrase in his title and I thought it was funny. I guess "rougie" is a genre term for vintage rape porn.

Check out The Million Ryo Pot. It's the earliest of three extant films of Sadao Yamanaka starring Denjiro Okochi as a battle-scarred samurai. Okochi is a proto-Mifune, playing tough characters with commanding screen presence.

You can guess the valuable object in this film is the million ryo pot. Ryo is a gold coin.

I just remembered there's a maneki neko (cat figurine) that gets flipped backwards and stays that way for a while. I'm wondering if anyone can explain the significance of doing that? I suppose I should go back to see what happens in the plot before the cat is moved.

Go back to your containment board r/a/pefugee. Thanks for bumping the thread though shit like this and the thread on 2001:Current Year remind me early /film/ was surprisingly terrible until 2016.


I fired up Netflix tonight to see what I could find. It's not my account so the recommendations were tailored toward another person. Seeing nothing of interest in the recommendations, I eventually scrolled to the International section. One of the first choices was A Star Is Born (1976) ... strange, was that made in Canada or something? (Nope!) I continued. Int'l section had stuff like Amelie, Y Tu Mama Tambien, Like Water for Chocolate, Sex and Lucia mixed with documentaries. Finally I settled on 13 Assassins, something I haven't seen yet. Good enough for a night, but I expected to find more new foreign films there.

Netflix seems like a place for popular movies that you haven't bothered to watch yet.


I looked around more. About a third of the new releases are Netflix originals. So the service is morphing into its own "channel" rather than a place to find a wide range of content.

Any particular reason why Marseille is in so many of these French gangster films? Just a seedy town?



I think, just by doing a silly dot connect, that it gets quite the attention due to being a port hub to Corsica and Italy (Corsican mafia) and some arab countries (particularly Libya) a military base, tons of migration funneling there and IIRC, a big red light district



Yeah I see a lot of entries about the mob in Marseille. I thought the city might have improved a bit since these movies were made, but it sounds like there's still a lot of crime and corruption there.


Wikipedia even blames current populism for pushing minorities into crime... I hadn't heard that logic before, but I suppose anti-immigrant populism empowers hardliners on the other side of the issue.


<A global push for populism and anti-immigrant sentiments have led to increased Milieu activity. Minority members of French society are being lured into crime families as a way of "fitting in".


File: 51d7d9f408997be⋯.jpg (164.08 KB, 1201x718, 1201:718, enuff.jpg)


>"I thought the city might have improved since"

>Port hub to Africa and Sardegnia/Sicilia countrysides

I think it's safe to say, in the current climate, that Marseille is not doing very good these days.

I was going to say that before but i don't like being too inflammatory around here.

>Wikipedia even blames current populism for pushing minorities into crime

Populism is a lot of things depending on the population (and its majority) but in the case of Marseille, i don't know who really is "the minority", if their populism is for or against France and if we talk in "traditional" definitions, are foreigners the majority of criminals because of populist/anti-immigrant sentiments or said sentiments are being distilled because foreigners are the majority of criminals?

These days some stuff happening makes definitions and words change way too fast



Well I haven't heard anything particularly bad about Marseille lately, unlike Calais or Cologne or London. So I wasn't sure what to think about it.

As for the wiki page, I'm sure they are blaming National Front supporters for a bad kind of populism that leads to a negative reaction in others. Their hypothesis is probably true to a degree. At the same time, bashing euro populism is more about being politically fashionable than identifying root causes. In this case I think it's being used to blame-shift for the actions of criminals themselves -- and also the actions of political elites whose policies created many of the societal problems in the first place.

How do I get into watching cinema (without film school)? It seems really hard to get into and understand. Recently I have been watching some films by Refn, P.T.A, Harmony Korine, Kubrick etc. I am well aware this is not the lofty heights of cinema but it has at least cracked open the door for me in wanting to see films with a more artistic bent. However whenever I try and look for more stuff to watch, the recommendations are the same A24 releases that I don't really care for. I tried to find one of those "must watch" lists also and it was basically just a bunch of pop culture meme movies like "The Goonies" and "Ghostbusters" that everyone and their grandma has seen.

So, how do I do it? How does somebody get into truly appreciating film? Pic related is probably the closest thing i've seen to "real cinema" and I enjoyed it thoroughly. Also looking for some starter recommendations of what I should watch first. Also I know >spoonfeeding but I figured you guys wouldn't mind considering this isn't a huge board.

The classic mubi list

Did someone named Kenji post on 4chan long ago?




Does that film have anything going for it other than the length?



I don't know I haven't seen it. But it seems out of place on that list. Does it really belong in the Top 50?

I've seen many more people raving about Dekalog than Shoah, so I'd say watch that instead.

I'd say no, but it's not as easy as it seems to make a top 50 list of entry level films. I found this chart from an old thread.

Anyone want to share alternate transfers for movies they like?

For instance, the Attack of The Clones Blu Ray is a hot mess, but the HDTV capture on MySpleen is a lot better, bitrate aside.

We could also make this a thread about best available transfers.

For example, David Fincher has one film not on Blu Ray (Panic Room) but it is on Superbit DVD.

File: 90f3a7fad5b7bf9⋯.mp4 (15.02 MB, 1280x720, 16:9, PlayTime official reissue ….mp4)


It's Playtime by Jacques Tati. If you're new to the director I suggest Mr. Hulot's Holiday as initiation to his peculiar style. His comedic sensibilities carry a distinct influence from the silent era -- minimal dialog and many sight gags.

Playtime was his most ambitious project, shot on the expansive canvas of 70mm. It's one of those films you want to see on the largest screen possible.

I tried to think of examples of open matte releases where you see more than you're supposed to see and it spoils the illusion. The only thing I could find is from the 2008 German bluray of American Psycho.

I have vague memories of some film about a sex change operation released in open matte where you discover the tranny character is actually just a woman. Something like that anyway.

/nacht/ closes, then opens for /grim/, October 24

First, I'll run another Afterparty movie for the next session. While dependent on any delays in the /grim/ program, the 15 minute break should start around 0742 UTC (or 12:42 am Pacific), which puts the movie start at 0757 UTC (or 12:57 am Pacific). This movie will be Halloween III: Season of the Witch.

Because hardly anyone showed up for the first warm-up movie this week, I'm only running two this Saturday afternoon. I have a special feature in store for the last (handoff) bumper though!

All times UTC:

• 2200 - Music begins

• 2226 - The Shining (1980)

• 0105 - The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975)

• 0245 - Souper Spoopy Speshul Feeture!

including 15 minute breaks between all films.
