I came upon this flick recently, by chance. I keep wondering, what's the public's deal with Beyond the Black Rainbow? It isn't nearly as bad or shallow as its reputation claims. Personally, I found it to be very enjoyable, in spite of its slow pace and all-too-known absurd plot twists. The direction and cinematography are both superb, acquiring an aesthetic display on par with arthouse cinema. Perhaps this fact led spectators to believe it would unfold a deeper meaning, even though it is, in essence, a B movie.

Has anybody in here seen it? What did you think of it?

I listened to a few podcast interviews with the director. He says he cut elements from the screenplay to make it more ambiguous.
I think it probably helped the movie attract more of an audience since not everything was spelled out.


What is the therapist dying so suddenly at the end of the film supposed to represent? And what's the significance of the "Devil's Teardrop?"


I think the director said he wanted to subvert the horror movie trope where it takes forever to kill the monster.
I don't really know the answer to your second question. The name sounds like a type of acid to me.

>isn't this true story a rip off of 1984?



I enjoyed it yes. Definitely the best Scorsese work in a very long time...

Although it was weird as hell, watching supposed characters from my country speaking in perfect english. I guess that's how germans feel watching old world war 2 films.



the conclusion undermines the whole film. Sure, that's the book's fault, but they made it worse by ambiguously suggesting Christ spoke to him.

But, the first three quarters of the film is, as you say, excellent viewing


>rip-off of 1984




The strangest thing for me was not the fact that they were able to speak perfect English, but the fact that they couldn't say one word of Portuguese or Latin properly. Regardless, it was a decent film better than most of the trash of 2016.



>The strangest thing for me was not the fact that they were able to speak perfect English, but the fact that they couldn't say one word of Portuguese or Latin properly.

That's always kind of funny. I tried to think of some other examples (besides Nazis)

All Quiet on the Western Front - Germans in WWI speak English. You could say it makes them more relateable to the American audience who fought on the opposite side of the war

The Silent Star - East German sci-fi with scenes from around the world. A science professor lectures an American classroom in German.

Spaghetti westerns - most everyone looks and speaks Italian

Kind of funny how this guy bolted after 15 minutes and didn't actually say anything on topic.

In case he returns, tell us about your character! And spill some juicy details on the production.

Current weekend estimates from matinee figures show an industry forecast of $6 million for today, and $16.7M for the weekend, which is a lot of red ink for both Warner Bros and Village Roadshow, who’ve spent a combined $175M before P&A on this noisy disaster.



Why did audiences hate it?

What does /film/ think of Cassavetes?

Hack or no?
15 posts and 5 image replies omitted. Click reply to view.



Too Late Blues is an anomaly because it lacks any sense of the 'underground' style he is known for. It's a conventional film. Haven't seen a Child is Waiting.

Faces is good though, if you like the atmospheres he creates. It's not about young people though, so it's definitely not as jazzy.


Read Cassavetes on Cassavetes. It really is great.



A Child is Waiting is pretty weak, but the studios tampered with the film in both production and post.

I'm not a huge fan of Cassavetes or his work. His films contain minute amounts of truth but he neevr really gets anything meaningful. Acting and dialogue of course are great. Did anyone else think that Faces is really annoying just because of the people? If you cut out the incessant laughing in the film it would have been 5-10 minutes shorter. The last shot is patrician though.

wtf now i'm really confused


Hack? Cassavetes was a fucking GOD. Love Streams, Woman Under the Influence, Faces, Killing of a Chinese Bookie. Four masterpieces right there alone.

Help me out, /film/. I can't think of any really great "American cinema". By that I mean films that show something of the "American spirit", and American history. Something you would watch and make you damn proud to be an American; either because of the quality of the film making, or the presentation of the subject matter, or both. I'm mainly looking for films that take place before 1900. One or two that already come to mind:

- Young Mr. Lincoln (by John Ford, not sure if that's the title)

- Birth of a Nation

- The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance (although I'm not teally looking for Westerns, and I'd prefer historical subject matter)

Bonus points for an actual quality film about Andrew Jackson. pic kind of maybe not related

Ridley Scott says Alien 5 is not happening. does anyone even care


>I don’t think it will ever see the light of day. There was never a script. Just an idea that evolved from a dozen or so pages. I had to participate as producer, but it didn’t go farther because Fox decided it didn’t want to do it. As far I was concerned, I had already done Prometheus and I was working on Covenant.



4 was certainly one of the better ones, I'd rate it higher than 3 and Prometheus at least. Maybe I'm just a sucker for everything Jeunet makes.

>Den of Geek: Where would you like to see the next Alien film head? Perhaps back to the more high-budget universe that you---'''

>Dan O’Bannon: I’d like to see it stop. A horror movie’s a fragile thing, and once you’ve gotten past the original, it isn’t scary anymore. So you do a bunch of sequels to a horror movie, all they do is drain any remaining impact out of the original. All of the sequels to for instance Invasion Of The Bodysnatchers, same thing; they over-expose the ideas, and when you look at the original, it’s not as effective as it would have been if you had just left it alone.

>But money makes the world go round and Hill and Giler saw that as the best way to make more money without having to do any work. So as producers with an in at Fox, they just continue to shove those things through.

>Den of Geek: So as far as you’re concerned the Alien franchise is pretty much played out now?

>Dan O’Bannon: It was played out after the first one, as far as I’m concerned. Cameron, in the first one, did about the only thing you could do, which was that he changed to a different genre, from a horror movie to an action film. But once he had done that, there really was nothing left to do. And they just keep squeezing the thing till it’s an empty bag. But as long as it keeps bringing in money to them, they’ll keep doing it.

If you can get past the slightly campy premise of cloning Ripley, it has this French comics sensibility to it. Really cool set design and compositions,and i kinda liked the hybrid baby alien.

Is filmmaking discussion welcome here?

So, I'm about to buy my first entry-level professional camera. I can't decide between getting a Panasonic GH2, hacking it and buying some lenses or getting a GH4 with a single lens.

People online worship the hacked GH2, and I've seen some amazing results with it (Upstream Color by Shane Carruth being a hell of an example), however it seems that the GH4 truly is the future of DLSR entry-level cameras, with my only problem being the $600 difference in price.

What do?

Well done! First I thought it was 5deep9me but soon it all made sense.

The creativity of this project stands out for me. How did you develop the sand language? Everything looks great, especially some of those giant clouds near the end.

how true is the ED description

> A site for wannabe hackers into cyberpunk. The owner, kalyx, has no standards - begs for money for his apple shit. Their mods are power tripping asswipe faggots (despite the site claiming they're not).


On this subject where is the dedicated bunker of /film/? When 8ch was hacked I didn't know where to go... Endchan was totally dead for the couple days besides one other anon. I think that 8ch is heading down the shitter and a dedicated backup might not be a bad idea.



Kalyx no longer owns it so that's inaccurate.



The bunker for /film/ is on Endchan, yes. That doesn't mean I want to go there permanently if 8ch dies. It would be easier to use 8ch.pl since it's built on the same software as 8chan.

Most of the time I watch films by chance. I go to a list if I want to watch a particular style/genre/country


If you liked Face of Another, you might like Seconds

As for parajanov I would like more ideas too. Countries like Ukraine and Georgia have a very interesting aesthetic. You could try Yuri Ilyenko and Tengiz Abuladze. I think both have been mentioned before on /film/ so I'm not bringing anything new



What style/genre/country are you currently interested in?



I'm not focused on anything specific right now. So I will watch things mentioned on /film/ or elsewhere that strike my interest

I thought about watching more Parajanov, perhaps one of the documentaries about him, but I'm disappointed to discover that 'not one of his films are on BD yet

Nice quads


It was an appealing little thing, nice job. The only thing I'd say is maybe invest in a tripod, but really, you should be proud of this.



I'll watch yours if you watch mine, OP.

Shot in 4 days for £180. One man film crew.

Two men who exist by eating only sand. Black comedy.




solid concept with lots of potential for material.

What did you film this with? An iphone or a DSLR from before 2011? The aesthetics seemed very plain and dull. Did you film this using automatic mode?

Why did you use handheld shots then switch to tripod shots for CU? I already know the answer but you do realize that if you go back and forth between static and dynamic shots, it can be jarring to the viewer. In this case, it was obnoxious because it wasn't done proper.

Next time get an audio guy as well, or just buy a cheap smart lav and hook it up to your iphone. You *need* proper audio gear, camera mics are *never* an option unless your established or an its arthouse.

Read Five C's of Cinematography too.

Almost three years later, but I'll offer some of my own thoughts. You really need to either get a handheld rig to reduce the annoying jittering. Also learn how to light scenes, because it looks like you relied solely on natural lighting for shots that need set up. The blonde kid should have been yelling, not pretending to yell. You need to really focus on the different elements and hone them in. There were some funny moments, and you should be proud that you completed the project but strive to improve.


Nice cinematography, what did you shoot this with, and how much storage did the footage take up?

I think Yesterday Girl is another important one from Alexander Kluge. It's more of a political film, somewhat like The Tin Drum.

Yep, that's it. I did not expect it to be on YouTube, what the fuck.

Fucking French make me sick, I don't how the fuck they get away with shit like this, though even this is pushing it. Out of context, it looks like a clip from an actual CP or snuff film.

Just, what the fuck is wrong with France. You could easily do that scene without showing anything.



I have not watched the whole movie but I can't imagine how that would fit with the rest of it



How did you find out about it then?
