I think Soviet/Russian cinema is sometimes overlooked compared to countries like France and Italy. How about a dedicated thread here at /film/?

Russia has more to offer than the dozen titles that everyone knows about. Talk about your faves here, but also the films below the radar in the West. New releases and former Soviet states are welcome too.

A couple links to get the ball rolling…

So I'm in this fb group that posts film stills and the lets people guess what it's from. I thought this would be a fun thing to start on this board.

Rules:

- Film stills in this situation are excerpts DIRECTLY from the movie. No production stills, no behind the scenes footage, NO CROPPING (ratio is important) and no posters or similar material.

- GIFs are encouraged, OC GIFs even more.

- Please post films only. No series, music videos or youtube stuffs.

- Of course you can google but that takes the fun out of it so please don't.

- Hints can be given in any form. Extra stills, music, release date etc.

- Please try to wait with posting a new still until the previous one is guessed. Let's do one at a time to keep it organised.

- When you post a still, keep track of it and let us know when it had been guessed. I suggest we post imdb links along with the 'you guessed right!' post so it is easy to find out wether a still has been guessed right or not.

- Please link correctly and add 'Hint' to your post when you post a hint.

Tips:

1. Make your own stills in VLC or anything similar, they have a direct screenshot option in VLC so you don't have to printsceen your movies, printscreening results in worse quality most of the time. This also prevents reverse image searching and stuff.

2. It's a lot of fun to post well known movies with unrecognizable stills.

3. Watch out for filenames!

I guess that's it. I suggest harder stills than the one I'm posting now but let's start off easy.

http://variety.com/2015/film/news/manoel-de-oliveira-dead-oldest-filmmaker-dies-at-106-1201465173/

> Manoel de Oliveira, the oldest living active filmmaker, with a career that spanned nine decades from the silent era to the present, has died. He was 106. News of Oliveira’s death was confirmed on the website for the city of Porto, Portugal, where the director was born in 1908.


> Oliveira had completed only two features by age 55 but subsequently made 29 by the time he was 102. Even more unusual is that one of these films, “Memories and Confessions,” was not to be publicly shown, by the director’s expressed wishes, until his death — meaning that a new Oliveira film may be soon unveiled. The director’s most recent film, “The Old Man of Belem,” premiered at last year’s Venice Film Festival.

Another one bites the dust! Richard L. Bare was best known for directing the TV series Green Acres. He had died a few days before Oliveria but his IMDB page was not yet updated.

Currently the oldest Western director is the 95 year-old Michael Anderson who made Logan's Run. His last project was The New Adventures of Pinocchio in 1999.

I've seen a few Korean Horror/Thriller films and enjoyed them.

I got into the genre because I was tired of western horror and the western remakes of j-horror put me off of that.

Of the movies I've seen, they're all fairly hit and miss. There are good ones, but there are also some very simple and predictable and cliched ones that aren't as enjoyable.

Are there any other fans of Korean film out there that can recommend some things?

IMDB isn't much help because all korean films pretty much have a rating of ~6 and only a few reviews done by people who clearly have no idea what they're talking about, and I don't know what sites I should go to in order to find more accurate ratings and reviews for asian films.

This is a helpful list for asian horror in general, but I am more interested in the Korean aspect of things.

To be frank, "horror" movies don't scare me any more, and are more like paranormal mystery stories than actual suspenseful films.

What's your impression of the crowdfunded projects you watched? Amateurish or shades of greatness?

I've only seen Blue Ruin and Indie Game: The Movie. Blue Ruin raised the bar IMO. I didn't even know it was crowdfunded until afterwards. It was on par with other enjoyable low budget thrillers.

Indie Game was not perfect but still interesting enough. I don't think it's as difficult to make a documentary, but it's cool that crowdfunding allows niche ideas or topics to be promoted.

Finally got my hand on it, Dance of Reality. A funny thing, every 2 days or so i checked on the book but it was always off, i snapped today and asked directly for it. Indeed it had been taken out on March 13th like the clerk said, the day of your post, but checking again we saw it was the date from 2015.

Seems some student grabbed it and never returned, we checked on the name and he doesn't appear in any social media nor the school. The clerk said she didn't realize it had been that much time since seeing it, so she concluded she had been "dancing" all this time. Didn't hear the rimshot, so i laughed without repercussions. She redirected me to another place i didn't thought about and got it.

I read a little, but it's quite extensive, still it helped me understand the link between the Ripstein guys and him... things are really connected between the tribes.

I didn't find the suspected reasons why he is like the way he is tho, other than the humorous ways he expresses about his father (daddy issues?) and his focus on genealogy (daddy issues) but one thing is for sure, he behaves, note by note, like our good ol' well-known stereotype of the eternal wanderer, subverting institutions and causing cultural mayhem wherever he walks. I don't want to make it political but he really does. At least he tries to explains them, brazenly at times.

Here's one example:

He found interesting how bullfighters purportedly saw the bull as the instrument/tool of their art/dance instead of the target, but symbolically destroyed it at the end anyways. So to translate this in a contemporary era, he announced he was going to front a rockabilly band in a cherished variety show, so he paid some musicians to play in the background and proceeded to fuck some piano up with a maul, ending with him mocking a crucifixion with the pieces. He called this a critique (it kinda is) back in 1960, but later on called it "the Deflowering of Mexican art", somewhat i can understand why he got kicked off several times. Rock was also frowned upon publicly soon after (this was true enough)

Then he explains the Cow incidentPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Oh so it's the book that turned into the film Dance of Reality. I haven't seen that one so I wonder how many of those events are depicted in the film? I had imagined that the public scrotum chopping would be more violent, heh.

I haven't seen Fando y Lis either, but reading your account of Jodorowsky's wild and crazy youth makes me want to go back to his early film projects. There's also video of his Panic movement performances Melodrama Sacramentral and Teatro Sin Fin from 1965

but Napoleon Dynamite has the best casting of all time. they knew exactly what they wanted to do in this film, and by God they did it so impeccably. name one film with better casting, i dare you. documentaries/movies where people play themselves don't count. i don't think i need to say that but i'll throw it in there because the thought that if i saw this thread posted i might make some snarky post like that where everyone plays themselves

I watched recently after not seeing it for probably a decade and was surprised at how great it was, and still is. One could argue that there is no plot but that doesn't really matter - the characters are so interesting and unique that your engaged right from the beginning.

Personally I really appreciate the movie since it doesn't rely on the seth rogen effect (dude weed, gay jokes, dick jokes, white people suck, bbc so yummy) style of humor that has become so stale and pathetic. Napoleon Dynamite relies on old fashioned comical techniques without any kind of gimmicks. There's no vulgarity or nudity, everything is innocent, like Napoleon himself. He's such a likeable outcast. Kip and Rico are great compliments to Napoleon. Honestly, who films themselves throwing a football over and over again and then proclaims that he could throw a football literally over a mountain? The brilliant thing about Rico is that Kip is a devoted follower and believes that Rico can do these outlandish things he says he can. Pedro just made everything that much better.

There's no blatant cultmarx/liberal propaganda and that in itself might be why so many people are drawn in. Napoleon Dynamite calls out to the subconscious of the viewer without them even realizing it.

This movie could, arguably, be one of the best American comedies of all time. It's aged like a fine wine and gets better every passing year.

Napoleon Dynamite is the Tarkovsky of comedy cinema. You see, there's nothing experimental about these type of films. They're extremely contemporary, the creators know what they're doing and where they're heading.

In Napoleon Dynamite, you can find the same philosophy as what you find in Zerkalo, Stalker, Rublev, Solaris, Sacrifice, and other Tark's films. They're very down to earth, they don't try to look sophisticated yet there's a radiance of brilliance emitted by them. Whereas other films try to mimic life, these films create life. These are the personal impressions of the director's memory that are transmuted into an audiovisual format. The aesthetic of these films are so hard to articulate, yet so alive and flows like poetry.

It's not only the casting that made the actors of this film feel so natural. There is a certain director's decision that needs to be made in order to achieve this. As explained by Tarkovsky in Sculpting in Time:

>Often enough in film, the director takes upon his conscience things that go against the wishes of the actor. In theatre, by contrast, we have to be made aware in every scene of the ideas that go to build up a character — that is the only right and natural way. For in theatre, things are not done to order; theatre works through metaphor, rhythm and rhyme — through its poetry.

>Here we wanted the actress to experience those minutes just as she would have in her own life,happily unaware of the scenario; she would presumably be hoping, losing hope, and then starting to hope again . . . Within the given framework of waiting for her husband, the acttess had to live out her own mysterious fragment of life ignorant of where it might be leading.

When someone creates a great work of art, how much of it is through rational thought processes, and how much of it is simply due to instinct; emotion?

I should begin by saying that I am, or rather was, firmly of the belief that it is an unconscious (I shan't go as far as to say spiritual) force that drives successful works. However, of the people that I have discussed this with, the majority seem to believe the opposite—that it is, at least in part, a methodical process. Not to say that it is in any way clinical or formulaic, but that the artist is fully aware of what they are doing and why.

Having read more analyses of famous authors and directors I think I understand why this view is common; if it is possible to dissect a work of art from merely having read/seen it, it isn't difficult to imagine that the person who actually made the damn thing knew exactly what they were doing. However, I still cannot shake the feeling that inspection of this kind simply describes why a piece works, and not necessarily the thought process of the creator.

Are there any authors/directors/whatever who have talked about this? The closest I have come to is Tarkovsky's comments on symbolism, but even that isn't really what I'm talking about. (funnily enough I love Tarkovsky's films. If I wanted to be a big homo I'd say they speak to me)

I have an example for you OP. Tell me what you think. Here is Apichatpong Weerasethakul talking about how he dislikes being asked about the meaning of his films...

Starts around 48s:

>Because I don't know, sometimes I don't know what I want to say. I mean, "What is your breathing for?" It's too big [of] a question.

Yeah no one has figured out how to rip videos from Filmstruck. Screen capture is the only method right now. I think they have a lot of interesting exclusive videos on there. I would subscribe if I had more time to watch. I'm too busy right now.

lol. Thanks for sharing this. This is basically how I ended up watching it after the 22 minute mark. Did you like the piece?


 No.11917

>>11916

I didn't like it enough to watch at regular speed, and looking back I still don't like it very much at fast speed. I can't sit idle for so long for so little. I'm not sure if it's intended to be watched outside of an art installation? As an installation it probably works better.

It would no doubt be better seen during an installation, for me at least. I'd love to attend an exhibition of his. A gallery/theater setting would make this one for me.

Dingo (1991) by Rolf De Heer. Colin Friels and Miles Davis star. Rolf has made some interesting films.

That's interesting. Miles Davis died in 1991, so Dingo was one of the last things he made. It's also one of his few acting roles:

1. Dingo (1991) .... Billy Cross
2. Scrooged (1988) .... Street Musicians
3. On the Edge (1987) (TV) .... Ozzie
4. "Miami Vice" .... Ivory Jones (1 episode, 1985)
- Junk Love (1985) TV episode .... Ivory Jones

Long Weekend is not one of the best Australian films but it's enjoyable regardless. The premise is simple: a couple departs from their comfy city life for a camping trip on the coast. Since this is a horror movie, their "long weekend" at the beach is far from relaxing. Nature actively attempts to punish the couple for their ecological carelessness.

Even though I liked Long Weekend, I have a gripe how it depicted the "man vs. nature" conflict. Often these types of stories project a moral code onto the natural world that simply does not exist. The underlying implication is that "evil" humanity deserves a comeuppance for its damaging impact on "good" nature. An audience will usually accept this notion. But humanity is not separate from nature or intruding on nature; humanity is part of nature. Furthermore humanity is not unique in its careless behavior. Animals can be extremely cruel and they act without conscience. Since nature does not care about the cruelty of animals, it's a stretch to pretend that it cares about humans behaving similarly.

There's an old saying:

Great Minds Discuss Ideas

Average Minds Discuss Events

Small Minds Discuss People

If the trend in that comment is accurate, it indicates a regression from films about ideas to films about people.

>>11884

I don't think that quote applies here.

>Small Minds Discuss People

I believe this means that weak or stupid people gossip often as they don't really have any ideas of their own to share with others.

I still don't see how this is bad.

Most good films deal with emotions and have characters who are complex. Also many films discussed on /film/ go against mainstream trends.

really? I usually like movies with hacking motives but i resent that movie for being so slow and boring. Was there really any deeper motives and themes in it?
