Hey are you still around? I watched Holod 33 and there is some text at the end of the film with no subtitles. What does this first image say?



>Studio "Earth" expresses gratitude to enterprises, kolkhozes, civil, cooperative and state organizations, as well as thousands of Ukrainians and compatriots in the United States, for material and moral help in creating the film.

Guy from the Soviet/Russian thread translated the image correctly.



Cool. I was surprised to see the United States mentioned. I wonder if there was actually specific American help on this film (I see nothing in the credits). Or perhaps the filmmakers were just happy the Cold War was over and they were out of the USSR.

That film has a unique monochrome aesthetic with a lot of memorable images. The color and lighting reminded me of Letters from a Dead Man.

Yes you are right. I looked at the credits on imdb and did not see American names or references. But apparently imdb omitted a lot of information.

So I'm watching Full Metal Jacket for the first time since High school when I was in ROTC and about the join the military. Several years later, a few of my friends have died in service and I have rewatched the film. Holy shit, I always thought this was Kubricks most "normal" film and had the least occult symbolism going on but I was very wrong. I never noticed the Vietcong flag draped in the corners like this, the red and black, the inverted pentagram and the flames flickering beneath. anyone else notice shit in this film that I haven't ? I know theres one scene where a Vietnamese billboard translates to english: To continuously serve Satan, your excellency, but I havent noticed much else.

>I just don't see much of a fascist element to it.

It's anti-union, union-busting was one of the primary purposes of fascism. Pair that with Disney's much more blatant Nazi love and it's pretty obvious any concept of his "ideal society" is fascist.

>I think the author makes some logical errors.

Agreed, the author is clearly an idiot who plays fast and loose with definitions and seems desperate to defend Disney somehow.

This month Film Club features a pair of films set during the winter holidays. First up is this Chinese wartime black comedy, which won the Cannes Grand Prize of the Jury in 2000.

> This second feature by actor-turned-director Jiang Wen—set in the shadow of the Great Wall during the final months of the Japanese occupation—keeps up a pummeling tempo and bawdy, throttling energy that prompted the disapproving Beijing Film Bureau to remark, "In general, the style of the film is vulgar." Indeed, this is a Chinese period piece more inclined to burn barns than raise red lanterns. Scored to farmyard squawks and a marching band, the movie barrels from frisky Ealing horseplay to cackling Kusturica farce. ~~ Dennis Lim, The Village Voice

> With its vertiginous black-and-white cinematography, narrative leaps and starts, twisty story and large pool of characters, Devils on the Doorstep, […] is not an easy movie. But in its dry and forceful way, it delivers the same message as Jiri Menzel's Closely Watched Trains and Danis Tanovic's No Man's Land. While acknowledging that war is hell, it goes further to suggest it is ludicrous. ~~ Stephen Holden, New York Times

Fires on the Plain is another essential film about Imperial Japan and WWII. It takes place as Japan has all but lost control of the Philippines. The exhausted soldiers have no food and little hope of survival. The story follows a lone soldier as he wanders through the nightmarish, inhuman scenario.

I think Kon Ichikawa's films have a unique visual impact, as the director used his background in manga to carefully storyboard all of his shots.

I attached this scene where a group of soldiers must sneak across a marsh, road, and meadow under cover of darkness.

The top middle image contains these three jazz LPs. Perhaps the film was released in the early 1960s

kenny burrell - a night at the vanguard (1959)

sonny rollins - what's new (1962)

max roach - it's time (1962)

It could be a japanese film, as the kenny burrell LP appears to be the GLOBE issue from japan

What does /film/ think of Rotten Tomatoes and imbd scores?

What does /film/ think of Letterboxd? I started using it just to keep a track of which films I was watching so I could more accurately determine what I enjoyed most in a year. The average ratings on films seem pretty reasonable. My biggest problem seems to be that the written reviews are only ever rarely quality, and most of the time seems to be a warped leftist mouthfart. Expect to see reviews like "Neon Demon is evidence of why men should not direct films about women"



This seems pretty damn good. Certainly going to consult it more often in the future.



I haven't read many of the reviews on letterboxd. I assume many of the reviews are amateurish because the userbase is mostly millennials.

A big part of Letterboxd is gaining followers. Since I don't care about followers, I prefer to use ICheckMovies for tracking my films. Status on ICM depends on how many films you've watched from major viewing lists. It's more about individual achievement than building a network.

....and I still miss the imdb forums ;_;


They mean virtually nothing after 2011 2012 and never mean anything for a superhero movie.


My favorites movies are usually those that have between 6 and 8 on IMDB.

Movies with a lower score are really bad, and those with an higher score are pretentious as fuck or are the standard hollywood oscar movie that everyone likes, which is ok but it never manages to fill my heart.

Rotten Tomato is basically leftists reviews, so I don't care about them.

File: 1422512868777.jpg (420.16 KB, 708x974, 354:487, Robert_Altman_-_1983.jpg)


what are your thoughts on Robert Altman?

I've been going through his films for the past month or two, even went to NYC twice to see some of them at the retrospective at MoMA. he is certainly one of the most unique American mainstream filmmakers just in terms of style, and of his ~40 films I haven't been disappointed by a single one (although I've only seen about 16 at this point— Long Goodbye was the only one that didn't work for me as much, although I loved California Split)

my favorite right now is probably a split between McCabe & Mrs Miller and Brewster McCloud. I got to see HealtH at MoMA, which has yet to be released on home video and is certainly one of his weirdest and off-color films that deserves more attention. I also got to catch Vincent & Theo (in 35mm) recently at a local theater, and in general I've been most fascinated by his work in the 80s than any other period.

Since you mention it, the class differences do play a significant role in the story. It's been a while since I watched it, but I don't think there's many difficulties understanding the culture.

I just found the story to be a little bland in comparison to his other works. Your mileage may vary.

>I thought Long Goodbye was okay after it finally got rolling, although it wasn't as good as I expected

I like that one but I hear where you're coming from

This guide to Altman chose TLG as the first one to watch. Not sure I agree


> Perhaps best of all is Altman’s version of Raymond Chandler’s The Long Goodbye (1973), in which private eye Marlowe (Elliott Gould) comes across as a shambling, somewhat bemused anachronism, his sense of justice and honour as out of sync as his suit and tie with the ruthless ambition and self-serving deceit that underlie the hippy trappings of early 70s, upper-crust LA.

Wait hear me out before you accuse me of shit posting, I want to actually hear what you think are the best films, in the sense that they encompass life through cinema. I've asked /tv/ and /television/ and both have failed me, I'm hoping this being the last bastion of taste on the internet can give me actual good films, the only good suggestions from the /tv/ thread were from a guy from here.

This is not true at all. More people than that have posted yesterday alone and there are longer posts in the #film-club channel than anything you will find on this board.



I got kicked out after first post.

Well, I scrolled the history of the #film-club messages over the past month and I couldn't find any "long posts". There are a lot of shitposts in the channels, I did not find any discussions at all, sometimes people asked "What do you think about %film_name%?", but nobody answered.



There were lengthy discussions about Syberberg, Pialat and Piavoli in the film club channel.



>I got kicked out after first shitpostpost.

Ftfy. There are plenty of long posts about Syberberg's films which was only one filmclub ago, so clearly you haven't scrolled too far.

Correction: If you criticize Obama, you can't be a liberal. Leftists and liberals are not the same thing.

Us leftists despise liberals because they're apologists for capitalism and easily fall for identity politics. Associating them with us is downright insulting.

We the Living - censored, lost, rediscovered Italian adaptation of Ayn Rand's first book

<We the Living (originally released in 1942 as two films, Noi vivi and Addio Kira) is a film adaptation of Ayn Rand's novel We the Living. It was directed by Goffredo Alessandrini and stars Alida Valli, Rossano Brazzi, and Fosco Giachetti. It was made and released in Italy during World War II, then subsequently banned by the Fascist government and pulled from theaters. The film was lost and forgotten for decades, then found and restored with Rand's involvement. The film was released for the first time in the United States in 1986.

I dunno, I'm not big fan of fairy tales and I have not watched their cartoons for a long time.

They released interesting adult oriented adaptation of famous Russian poem ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Tale_of_Fedot_the_Strelets ), but the poem can't be translated into other languages.

Yes, that's it.

Hey gang, I made an experimental short and want to submit to a film festival.

Unfortunately everything I've seen on Withoutabox wants me to upload video to Vimeo and send them the link.

Is there any other festivals I could submit it too where I can just mail a dvd?

Nope it's not. Just something cool I picked up along the way.

Sup guys, heard back from the 2nd film festival. I didn't get picked. They didn't list a reason, just a "thanks but no-thanks" canned response.



Too bad. How many are left to respond?

So I'd like to do a thread of people I feel like got lucky. Either it was being in the right place at the right time, or being surrounded by talented people who fixed up their work and made them look a bit better.

So post a film maker who you feel got lucky. Explain why.

George lucas. While having the vision to create some things that a bunch of people loved, we all know that the original cut of star wars was a mess. Over and over again, through the countless efforts of great people he surrounded himself with, lucas reaped the benefits and by casual movie lovers, is considered a visionary. The truth of the matter is that I believe dearly, and truly that no one else managed to get nearly as lucky as lucas did.

But who else did? I know that there are more.

Michael Bay is one of the most likely filmmaker to be called vulgar auteur in the cinephile community. Same goes for PWS Anderson. And tbh I would thoroughly think about it before simply disagreeing just because hating Bay/Lucas/etc. is the smart nerd's opinion.

Also how do you not know Richard Brody?



>PWS Anderson.

My man. Event Horizon has flashes of talent.

I do think Lucas is the most overlooked filmmaker of our time.

Not in vulgar auteurism way, but in a "he's wildly imaginative and his movies have such a range of powerful images and a lot in the way of theming as well". Kind of way.

He's more than overlooked because of how much of a laughing stock he's become to people who haven't worked with him.

What are your favorite Samurai films, /film/? I'm a huge fan of the genre, Harakiri is my favorite. I also like the Zatoichi series, all of the Kurosawa ones, Lone Wolf and Cub, and Sword of Doom. I'm looking for lesser known Samurai flick recommendations, so let me know what you guys's favorites are

Why no mention of Shogun Assassin?



It's kind of the same thing as Lone Wolf and Cub

I just finished Yojimbo, I didn't nearly like it as much as Harakiri, it felt more like popcorn entertainment than a film because of the goofy acting and awkward pacing.

I was underwhelmed by Yojimbo too, probably because I expected something better. It was one of the first Kurosawa films I watched; it took a while for me to watch another from him. It's definitely nowhere near Harakiri.

For me, the Leone connection is the most interesting aspect of Yojimbo.



It was very lighthearted in comparison to other works, but i found the use of black & white in particular very, very good.

The use of rich textures and their respective light and shadow results to create dense-to-the-eye backgrounds is excellent, sometimes with movement too (flowing sake madness, the silly encounter in the middle of smoking the mansion, destroyed guard house).

Sounds pretentious but that kind of level of detail did impress me, especially when it was one of the first Kurosawa i saw too.

Sanjuro takes on a slightly more serious note but it's just as silly later on in terms of violence and some acting. It does retain the quality level in most aspects, it wasn't a shameless sequel.
