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.

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.

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.

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.


 No.11534

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.

If you are feeling adventurous you could also try The Deserters and the Nomads by Slovak director Juraj Jakubisko. This one has "surrealistic sensory overload" as imdb says. You may not enjoy it if you are just starting out, it's sometimes hard to follow, but I'd say it's one of the most interesting CZSK films of the late 1960's.

>I expect the ruins to be monolithic in character, more ancient than the oldest Egyptian discoveries. Judging by inscriptions found in many parts of Brazil, the inhabitants used an alphabetical writing allied to many ancient European and Asian scripts. There are rumors, too, of a strange source of light in the buildings, a phenomenon that filled with terror the Indians who claimed to have seen it.

>The central place I call “Z” — our main objective — is in a valley surmounted by lofty mountains. The valley is about ten miles wide, and the city is on an eminence in the middle of it, approached by a barreled roadway of stone. The houses are low and windowless, and there is a pyramidal temple. The inhabitants of the place are fairly numerous, they keep domestic animals, and they have well-developed mines in the surrounding hills. Not far away is a second town, but the people living in it are of an inferior order to those of “Z.” Farther to the south is another large city, half buried and completely destroyed.

That's how I felt. I thought it started quite good, then got muddled in the middle, but it pulled everything together for a strong finish.

This film looks absolutely gorgeous though. The cinematography is probably influenced by early 20th century depictions like Days of Heaven and Heaven's Gate. I like when beams of sunlight pass into a darkened room to show all the dust floating around.

They chose to make his wife some sort of feminist, as she objected to various societal conventions. She also begged to go on the jungle adventures and leave the kids behind. I don't know if these scenes were true to life, but it seemed rather Current Year and predictable. I read that the real Nina Fawcett was interested in mysticism. I think that would have been a more interesting character trait. That could have added a completely different element to the film, as Percy shared her interest. There's supposedly evidence that Percy's expeditions were partially guided by his desire to start an Amazonian spiritual commune.

Can we have a thread dedicated to Carlos Reygadas?
Personally I've found that no other director can capture reality the way he does. His films Silent Light and Post Tenebras Lux are the hands down the two most beautiful films I've ever seen.
He also has the exact same philosophy on film and storytelling as I do. He's probably my favourite dorector of all time.

I was going to tear him but he does seem to have a logical point, and i sincerely lack a ton of formal film theory reading.

Reminds me of the falling video game industry, where the top brass and known critics regard the media these days as a tool for telling stories via interactive context and lastly some specific mechanics, instead of the classic aficionados who believe the mechanics and their executions in a designed space are the objects of appreciation themselves.

Haven't seen his stuff, the confidence in the written delivery might seem a little pretentious so i guess he does deliver his ideas, but portraying visuals as the narrative, the wheels of the vehicle to call it in a way seems overly difficult in full time format (over 60 minutes).

The ancient "ideal" combination of audio, visuals and narrative MIGHT have taken place in some music videos, but those take at most 6 minutes, and "video art", stuff usually focused on visual experimentation ala Rybzynski, take 10 or 15 if they are self-indulgent.

Now i really don't like our cinema, like many of us, because of the extreme ratio between quick movies made purely for money in one-week budget-priced cinema tenures and interesting movies hidden between the mountains of hot trash, hence the lack of achieves and enthusiasts. I went to explain it but I got carried a little, went over the line and wrote 800+ words so i will spare you the eyesore.

Vigil and Navigator are both excellent, both deal with spirituality, both contain many striking visual moments.

Vigil has a timelessness similar to films from Europe that take place in rural, isolated, or preindustrialized villages. The clothing in the film does not seem modern at all, making me wonder if kiwis actually dressed like that in the 20th century. Vigil places more emphasis on visual storytelling (or moodsetting) because the dialogue often seems incidental.

Navigator has plenty of dialogue and a clearly defined plot. Of course it's still unconventional compared to typical cinema offering. And Navigator probably has stronger imagery than Vigil, with many beautiful scenes like the one in this clip.

So certain aspects of Vincent Ward's early work reminds me of Bergman, Tarkovsky, Valley of the Bees, Witchhammer, maybe Hard to be a God as films with a similar aesthetic and content. That's the first things that came to mind, I'm sure there are other comparisons to be made...

ITT: Christmas films you're planning to watch / you like to watch every year / you think others should know about

I plan to watch the first animated TV special, Mr. Magoo's Christmas Carol (1962). The UPA style is a lot of fun. Although it's had many home releases (including Blu-Ray), over the years it's been greatly overshadowed by the Grinch and Charlie Brown.

I may watch Blast of Silence or The Apartment too. Both take place during Christmas and they're both great for different reasons.

If I could find it I'd like to see the colorized version of It's a Wonderful Life, just for (morbid?) curiosity's sake.

A couple other interesting picks: Wake in Fright (easy to forget it takes place during Christmas) and Lady in the Lake (the POV gimmick is notable despite the film's flaws)

White Christmas … pretty much stinks.

I might watch Bell Book and Candle. I hadn't really heard about it before this week.

I enjoy movies that take advantage of the emotional capacity of man. The director is supposed to also direct how you feel, which is a misunderstood concept in modern Hollywood. Take Jaws for example. This is one of the most well-crafted scenes that exists in cinema because the audience is in tune with Brody's emotions even when not focused on him. Brody is thinking about the shark, so uncertainty is carried throughout the entire scene with several false alarms that temporarily relieve the audience of constant stress and reminds them to be vigilant. The audience starts to doubt the notion that a shark will appear at all once the wife starts to reduce tension, that is until the dog goes missing. Then the music starts to play and the shark claims it's second victim with a shocking amount of ferocity. The audience, like Brody, doesn't fully process the situation until the most elegant dolly zoom I've ever seen. I could go on and on about how fantastic this scene is and how much I appreciate Spielberg for using the deaths as devices to progress the story rather than get emotionally mixed up in them or how useful emotional capacity is in conveying abstract ideas to an audience through experience rather than explaining it, but I've made my point. Literally every movie should do this regardless of whether it's for critics or casuals.

The best Wachowski film is actually Speed Racer.

No reason really. If I get something out of it I like it.

You're basically describing tension build-up and a resulting realization. Structurally it is impressive, especially for the time. I'm not a fan of Spielberg though.

A good film is a good film. A snuff film shot on 8mm film could be kino if it stirs a unique emotional response from the viewer.

True.

I wonder if they're going to make a remaster of this movie in 4K or something like that, it would be a blast to watch.
