It is a page from «Andrei Tarkovskys Poetics of Cinema». I sourced the quotation from Derek Jarman within a brief diary about his struggle to find money to make films in Britain. I like his observations about Pasolini that he writes about.

This kind of thinking leads nowhere fast. That you need to be in the right place at the right time to take advantage of a window of opportunity goes without saying. He took this advantage in the Soviet Union, but there is no telling if he wouldn't have had an analogous opportunity in the UK or in America, or anywhere else for that matter.

A biography can't be separated from its circumstances so it's stupid to try to seriously simulate stuff like this. The variables will grow exponentially the more you dig in.

For one, it would be highly unlikely for him to soak Orthodox spirituality as a Westerner - he would have had different thematic interests. He would have also studied editing from a different academic perspective and likely never arrive at his time-sculpting theory. He would have different political concerns.

But then there's no telling if this fantasy upbringing would have given him the tools to start a career in film specifically, as opposed to medicine or editorial work. After all, he would have had different childhood role models, influences and hobbies. He would have applied to different schools.

Tldr: stupid.

Old bump. Well there is no definitive answer to your question.His work is absolutely saturated in Russian culture and the more natural places that he grew up in. Would his films still have that poetic quality? Probably but I wouldn't be surprised if he dealt with different themes, or better said similar themes in vastly different circumstances. Andrei Rublev (or any of his films) would not exist, and I have really no idea what would be in their place. He would still have been able to find funding just based on his talent and visual eye, and I do believe that he would have found success, although maybe not to the degree of his Soviet career.

I'm not sure about the ring. There's not much to pick up from just that scene. I can't make any definitive statements unless I rewatched more scenes with it.

As for Amir I believe that he was pretending to pout because his wife spoke for him. So everyone gave an over-the-top reaction to his pouting until he started laughing along with them.

Don't know if this is the right thread but I didn't wanna make another one - there's a film I've been trying to find for ages after someone posted a scene from it in an 'auteurs' thread iirc.

It looked like it was from the 90's - possibly early 2000s - and it had the same lo-fi, colour saturated look as Gummo. I distinctly remember that the scene itself started with shots of excavators and suburban houses. I could be wrong but I *think* the scene involved a boy/man on a skateboard either talking to himself or someone else about something biblical.

So I'm a really fucking bored autist with literally nothing better to do. Pic related shows how an older version of the rating system ranked a portion of the 200 or so I ran through it.

Currently, the system I have in place works on a 400 point scale that I then turn into a 0 - 100% overall rating:

>Viewer Score (IMDb - mostly unbiased)

>Critic Score (RT - slight bias)

>Return on Investment (The Numbers/Box Office Mojo - occasional bias with some films needing to resort to a default figure if no information can be found)

>Mistakes (IMDb's Goofs section - occasionally biased against more popular films but works well against others such as Superman IV or the earlier Fas'n'Fury installments)

But before I go into it full time for about an hour each day, I need to know if there's anything else I should consider adding. I contemplated separating Ebert's scores from the rest of the critics but that would have been too time consuming and he doesn't review things on a 100 or even 10 point scale, so it would be locked at certain values. I also considered the J-Dar, but then realized it had shut down with the lights on but no-one in, not to mention the severe bias it would have and the incorrect information it sometimes possesses.

 No.9023

I am not sure if ratings matter very much on this board- you cannot judge to what extent you'll enjoy a film based on a number, just its popular appeal,IMO. A good ratings system, to my mind, would perhaps consider production quality, intent and interesting-ness.

For example, look at a film like The Keep. Is it a "good" film? All in all, I'd say it's a mangled mess, so not really. Is it interesting beyond that? I'd say certainly, and definitely worth a watch. It has intention,themes and cinematography worth checking out.

So as far as ratings go, it would be lovely to have one that has say, one general rating and one rating for whether it is interesting in other ways. Whether this is a subjective understanding, i'm not sure. Any takers?


 No.9024

As an overall "should i watch it" popular Hollybuff rating i think it's pretty decent, but i don't think it's a good way to find a "good" movie

IMDb is highly biased in newer movies, but i agree in older ones it goes OK

RT is very swinging, their system refers mostly to a yes or no due to anything being 90+ or -50

Moneymaking prowness is a bizarre stat, plenty of not very good flicks have made absurd amounts of money, while a bunch of good ones have been box office bombs or received no mainstream aperture

Then you have old boy Ebert, the mood swinging man, his rating system depended on his breakfast quality and ended up with a similar RT answer, it's not about good or bad, it's about wasting your 10 bucks ticket or not

And all of this might present a controversial decision, not in a thousand years will El Mariachi be better than The Godfather, in 10 bucks or quality perspectives, same with Fistful of Dollars slapping Das Boot

For a local rating, or a filmeater one, my idea would be a good plot synopsis, due to our opinion varying highly on our personal tastes regarding plot, and a small 7 star rating, with 4 being average, 1-3 varying degrees of not good and 5-7 varying degrees of good. A movie might be a 2 but its story, actors and director/writer might persuade us to check it if we are fanatics of 2 or 3 of these factors. Same with a 6, the story might turn us off along with its director, no execution might save it from a personal distaste in some cases

Just an opinion thou

One of the best ranking (not rating) systems I've seen is the "Most Favorited" on ICM. It's calculated without giving an edge to the most popular films...

https://www.icheckmovies.com/lists/icheckmovies+-+most+favorite/

> The most favorite movies on the iCheckMovies.com website, based on the movies' favorites/checks ratio. By looking at the ratio, unknown gems don't necessarily get overpowered by more well-known movies

The most favorites movies are calculated by picking the movies with the highest favorite/checked count ratio. The exact formula used to determine the ratio of a movie is as follows:

ratio(M) = F(M) ÷ (C(M) + 50)

Where:

M: A movie
F(M): Number of times movie M has been favorited
C(M): Number of times movie M has been checked
I don't know how you'd make adjustments for the data on imdb or RT, but it might be possible to extract more meaningful information from those sites.

Okay I'll take an obvious one. My favourite from the wiki page is probably Japanese New Wave with particular appreciation for The Art Theatre Guild during this time. Almost every JNW film I've seen has been very interesting and creative. Admittedly I'm watching all the best ones, but usually you run into some turds while exploring a film movement.

One of my least favourites is French New Wave because it is overrated. The films often do not resonate with me much. They experimented, not always successfully.

Aren't the majority of patrician films low-budget, egocentric projects made by philosophy/arts rejects by these rules then?

Over time I began to take more interest in a film's visual composition than the plot itself, and most mainstream cinema doesn't really scratch that itch.

The main problem is that I've never taken film classes or anything like that so I can't really explain why I enjoy certain shots over others aside from some vague mumbo-jumbo. Maybe learning more about filmmaking would help, dunno what books I'd start with though since I've heard Setting Up Your Shots isn't that great.

my dad had/has a big ass collection of dvds, i started just going on imdb and 'top movie' lists and watching the ones my dad had in his collection. some of them really stuck with me like The Fountain, Kagemusha/Ran, Kubrick in general, Lawrence of Arabia. kept scratching that itch, eventually i was looking through one of those lists and david lynch came up. dad didn't have any of his movies, but i found twin peaks on netflix. after seeing the first dream sequence in that it fully hit me how much i loved the medium and the possibilities therein. my love of lynch led to websites with more 'sophisticated' lists (think TSPDT v. imdb top 500) and more esoteric ones, that's basically it. don't remember how i got into really truly considering the elements of film, but it happened somewhere in there and now i literally can't enjoy modern mainstream cinema because the visuals and everything else are so distasteful to me

I always loved movies but only watched children's films, Disney, The Goonies or whatever. I'd go see the new superhero movie or whatever was coming out.

Then around early high school I start wanting to watch more serious movies. Like every 15 year old I got started on Tarantino, Fincher, what have you. I started watching what my favorite directors like and that broadens things up into foreign film territory. I started browsing boards like this and seeing patrician infographics and I was like, I wanna be like that.

It's pretty much been like that ever since. I find out about a director, a style of film, a movement, an important period, and I want to get a taste of it. And if I like it I want to see more.

I think the first real art house film I saw was Eraserhead. I didn't really "like" it at the time, per se, but I was fascinated.

It didn't really incite my interest in art house but it did stick with me. I think that was my first exposure to something totally different and surreal.

Most cinephiles develop that way, I think. It's just a gradual desire to see new things and be more informed. There's definitely a competitive feeling for me. I don't like the feeling of having to tell someone I haven't seen something. And there's still a ton of classic films I've not seen yet and I try desperately to conceal that.

I've always liked a large variety of movies. My parents had a pretty big laser disc, vhs, and dvd collection that I started looking through when I was an infant. The first art house film that I remember seeing was Little Otik aka Greedy Guts on Sundance, and this was when I was very young but I did enjoy it and it definitely made an impression on me. I of course went through the artsy mainstream director phase around late middle school to mid high school. I'm 19 now and I only recently got more into films on the more obscure side, like 500 or less ratings on IMDB.

Are you talking about man vs self? I love isolation and survival themes where one man is put into a horrible survival scenario and somehow comes out of it alive.

As far as my favorite theme, I don't know. Probably the one I find most interesting at the moment is the duality of man. A great example of this would be the Joker in Full Metal Jacket.

That's not my all time favorite though, I'll have to give it some thought and come back later.

Really looking for some films that have a sense of catharsis, a strong emotional drive to it. Films that are known to have a lot of heart, or handle something in a way to draw out emotion. I'm sorry if I'm not exactly clear, if you have any questions, please feel free to ask.

I thought of Nipponese Criterioncore, maybe obvious to you but maybe not

The Naked Island, Seppuku, Woman in the Dunes, Sansho the Baliff, The Human Condition

All worth watching for feels

Can you recommend nice websites to find/watch films? I have torrents banned on my network, and sometimes I just can't find the movies I want.

Pretty much more often I just use /r/megalinks/ which is limited is hell.

Well these sites are closed for a reason, they don't want everyone in there. And it's hard to gauge peoples' reputations on an imageboard. Do you have any torrent accounts?

Since that site is based on people uploading links, maybe you can prove your worth if you handpick 3 films and upload them in the request thread

I have never had to torrent anything... Do you mean like kickass? Because I could easily make an account. Also could you link me to the request thread.

requests are here >>4115

I was just curious about torrents b/c it would be one way to see how much you share. You don't really need to make a new acct if you don't already have one

Before torrents there was eMule. Have you tried it? http://emule-project.net/

So did any of you guys get to see Napoleon when it played in San Francisco or London?

Seems like it would have been an amazing experience. I've never even seen a silent film with a live orchestra. I'm holding off watching this film just in case I get the chance to attend one of these screenings someday.
