So how did you enter the world of non-mainstream cinema? Did you make a deliberate push to watch more alternative films, for example? And when?

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.

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.

I've been reading a lot about semiotics lately and I'm hoping to watch some films that deal with semiotics in one way or another, I feel like film as a medium is uniquely suited to tackle it. I'm sure there are a ton of films that do so but I'm not really sure where to start, mid-period Godard (70s and 80s) looks promising... It seems like academic-type films would probably be ripe with this stuff. Anyone have any recs?

man i havent been coming on here very often. thanks for the suggestions, I've seen Helvetica, it was good, I think Zorn's Lemma is closer to what I'm thinking of. I read Mythologies by Barthes, Precession of Simulacra by Baudrillard, On Several Regimes of Signs by D&G, and some other assorted essays. I've been especially interested in the way that symbols take on significance in relation to nations, and how they're disseminated in images through the media and advertising, and function as centers of power. One good example would be the way that North Korea portrays their leaders, there's plenty of books about it. The visual and aural aspects of film seems well equipped to portray and deconstruct the relationships that images have with our daily lives. One example of what I'm thinking of could be The Creators of Shopping Worlds by Harun Farocki. I think the avant garde is probably the best place to find thoughtful deconstructions of image processing and symbol-making, I'm just not exactly sure where to look

Some people here might like the mostly forgotten Fade to Black (1980) about a loner obsessed with cinema culture so much that he loses touch with reality. The production is cheap at times but it's a fun watch. Reviews at the time were pretty negative but Ebert gave it 3/4 stars.

Sadly this film was overshadowed by its imitator, George Romero's Night of the Living Dead.

It's a great film though, Price gives a fine performance, the sets are very nicely designed and the plot is good too.

Sadly Romero gets all the credit for "reinventing zombies" when actually all he did was take this film's vampires, make them less dangerous and rename them.

3-O'clock High, that was a great movie. I love how the hero tries every dirty trick he can before 3:00.

The Last Man on Earth. Immensely better than it's Will Smith imitator.

My go-to for hidden gem movies is always Phantom of the Paradise. Where a composer is dragged into the seedy underworld of a record producer's club opening. It's Faust, it's Phantom, it's the 70's. Like a low profile Tommy, prepare for wonderful and crazy at the same time.

Rock and Rule, and Dr Horrible's sing-along blog, both deserves mention as well.

I watched is a few nights ago. The story about a midwestern family set at the beginning of the 20th C. reminded me of The Magnificent Ambersons. But Meet Me in St. Louis was pretty light and upbeat by comparison.

Judy Garland looked a little odd sometimes. The bad wig was distracting. It made me wonder what drew her to be a top star, but I see from wikipedia she struggled a lot with MGM demands about her appearance.

Also I was sad to see one of the little girls from this movie in the TCM montage about 2016 deaths. The youngest is still alive at 79 yo.

I don't know, what hypnotizes me or calls me about the film is something else entirely. I'm usually not that fond of family films like that, but Minnelli's luminous composition and the way the characters evolve around the space they're given its all magical to me (you can appreciate this when the father sings "You and I" and the whole family starts surrounding him). I'm also very intrigued by his way of portraying family relations because I think it's beyond superb, also really admired this aspect in Some Came Running.

All the jokes really stuck with me, nothing fell flat and all the characters are so delightful.

Admittedly, part of my love for the film comes from seeing it on Christmas time in New York (35mm) I cried a lot that time I admit.

Judy Garland isn't gorgeous but she's incredibly energetic and brings a lot to the film, I don't know if she was married to Minnelli already on that time.

Beautiful beautiful technicolor.

Recently I stopped watching films and started reading instead. Now that I want to return I find myself more picky with the films I watch. My favourite director used to be Kieslowski because of his humanity. Then I read David Foster Wallace and were underwhelmed by Kieslowskis philosophy.

I'm trying to ask for some names of directors/ films that goes beyond aesthetics and deeply studies characters and learn important life lessons through the philosophy of the film. Any ideas?

 No.5452

I think documentary is probably the most potent, because it captures actually "real" characters. the filmmaker may or may not inject their own take on what is captured, but always you (with a good doc), you are left with a lot to think about that can be approached from a variety of ways. Abbas Kiarostami (sp?) comes to mind, great documentarian. I also like Werner Herzog's documentaries a lot, he definitely injects a lot of himself and his own thoughts into them though

like above poster says, it is difficult to find a film that will go into such depth with a character or an idea that you would find in literature. to me, film is all about observation and extrapolating from that; film making is about providing a certain perspective to observe from I guess. Terrence Malick's films I think are some of the best, he really lays things out beautifully and there is so much to consider in the way he shoots things, just deeply ponderous on the human condition. I think you just need to approach film in a different way, maybe


 No.5455

>>5450

>>5452

Thank you both for the answers. I find it intriguing to watch more documentaries, but I'm searching for fiction.

I have a hard time expressing what I'm after. I understand that film is more of a observing practice than reading, but that doesn't exclude character studies and philosophy, or does it? My idea is that some films put things in perspective and therefore learn life lessons, like "A Short Film About Killing".

I'll look into Ruin and Rivette!


 No.5510

>>5455

One of the things I enjoy about film is often the lack of overbearing narrative, that is so common in literature and elsewhere. It's not uncommon to have certain documentaries that don't really have any clear message, but are more or less an aesthetic exploration of the subject.

In terms of Malick, there are some pretty dope explorations of morality/conformance in Badlands, and Thin Red Line is an excellent 'philisophical' exploration of the nature of war.

I agree that Herzog and Kiarostami are great places to start at. Though in general, I think you can find films that have excellent explorations of the respective subject matter regardless of the 'genre' of the film. I could maybe recommend more if you gave specific examples of film that fit the criteria you are looking for that you have already watched.

One that comes to mind, given your partiality towards DFW, is Un homme qui dort, which is an exploration of depression and angst manifested in a Parisian student. It's one of my favorite films!

Can we talk about instances of motion in a particular direction continuing through a cut?

For instance, I was watching Revenge of The Sith and this scene caught my eye.

The starfighter crashes toward the screen, followed by a cut to Grievous motioning in the same direction + slow camera zoom in.

It's just a really effective little technique IMO and i'd like to talk about uses of it in film.

These are all very interesting, and it's my fault for being unclear with my OP.

There might be a term that I don't know, but when I said "motion continuing through a cut", I actually meant something like pic related, where the motion is continued through a location/scene change, like my OP with it cutting from the hangar bay to the bridge, but still continuing/complementing the direction of the prior shot (from another location)'s motion.

I worded the OP poorly. My fault, chaps.

I was rewatching The Shining just now, and noticed a discrepancy that doesnt seem to have been explained. When Jack enters the Gold Room in a past party, Midnight, The Stars and You is playing. The end of the movie with the portrait dates those events at the 4th of July, 1921, which couldn't have been possible because Midnight the stars and you was written in 1934. Was this intentional to show how arbitrary the passing of time is from a viewpoint in the present, or was it an oversight?

Was this detail mentioned by anyone in Room 237? If it was I forgot about it.

I found reference to the selection of music in "Listening to Stanley Kubrick: The Music in His Films" (starts toward the bottom of the page). The production team solicited songs from 1920-1935. In the end Kubrick chose 4 songs from the 1930s.

So the choice was intentional but that doesn't explain Kubrick's motives. It's hard to say whether he wanted to be anachronistic or simply thought 1930s music worked better.

I rewatched Room 237 and it wasn't explained.

I was thinking they could tie it in with their statements about impossible architecture of The Overlook. The music is another impossibility. Personally I think it was purely a stylistic choice - the music was chosen because conveyed the right mood.

While we're one the subject what's with the main theme being a rendition of Berlioz's Symphony fantastique? Here are the two tracks for reference skip to 3:45 in the second vid to hear the theme

The book also talks about that striking music during the opening shot:

> At one point in pre-production, Kubrick asked Wendy Carlos about appropriate music for graves and death, and she suggested the chant commonly known from the Roman Catholic Requiem mass, the Dies Irae. One of the chant’s most famous appearances is in the final movement of Berlioz’s Symphonie Fantastique from 1830, a piece that Carlos recommended to Kubrick. In typical Kubrick fashion, it had a strong effect on him, and like Prokofiev’s score to Alexander Nevsky that he owned as a child, he played it, Carlos estimates, more than a hundred times. In that time, he forged a deep connection to the music.

It's interesting that Dies Irae is frequently quoted in other scores: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0hL1m4hGBVY

One way to advertise /film/ is to create profiles on movie websites. I made an account on letterpleb with some of the lists from this board:

http://letterboxd.com/8chanfilm/

I used favorites from >>8357 and added films that people had mentioned here previously (not comprehensive). The profile still looks empty without reviews and ratings. It might be best to add some reviews for obscure films. Then we'll get noticed when people search for them.

EDIT: I changed my mind. Obscure is good, but we'll have limited impact if that's all we post. So contribute whatever you want.

If you guys want to help you can:

- Give some quick film ratings.

- Find reviews to add, maybe one you posted here in the past. It doesn't have to be a Film Comment essay. In fact if you're funny or subversive it helps us stand out.

- Suggest other lists. We talked about doing a poll of everyone's favorites to create a toplist.

- Follow the account and "like" the content to boost the numbers.

- Offer any other suggestions for improvement

After we get this profile up and running, I will move on to other sites and duplicate what I can.

I'm down for whatever poll you guys decide to make

I've written some reviews for obscure films on 4chan, maybe i can find them and post them here


 No.8413

>>8410

Yes. I was planning to include those as another list. I think I can link to every Film Club thread within the list. All the films are worth watching...and even the preliminary discussions led to other interesting titles.

>>8412

Sounds good. There are a lot of reviews here already so I will probably pick some others from old threads.

Has 4chan made a Trumpcore list? Google shows nothing for "Official Trumpcore".

Trump gets people to click.

Make a list of movies with Trump, movies about Trump, movies about walls, movies about the Mexican border, anti-China propaganda, what else? Try to force some /film/ tier picks in there.

Update list as news happens. It might be fun.

What do you think of this bizzare musical comedy? Was it kino, or just a crazy flick?

Joint, alright.

I think Phantom of The Paradise is a better film. The music might not be as good as Lisztomania, but IMO it's still the greatest musical cinema ever.

I love Tommy. Haven't seen Altered States though.

What do you guys think of Quadrophenia?

>>7459

> Phantom of The Paradise

Weird that I always thought that was the KISS movie (which is probably much worse)

I don't think I've seen a single 70s rock opera. Two I'd really hate to endure are Jesus Christ Superstar and Rocky Horror


 No.7505

>>7464

i saw rocky horror and was severely disappointed. so much hype around it, i wasn't expecting it to be "good" but thought it would be weird enough to be enjoyable, but it's just kind of shitty and mildly strange

for my part I think The Wall movie is fantastic, that album is very cinematic and I think it makes more sense as a film


 No.8374

Tommy from 1975 is enjoyable.
