ITT great soundtracks
I know I've mentioned Drowning with Numbers recently since I watched it recently but damn it's got a hell of a soundtrack.

John Barry's theme for On Her Majesty's Secret Service is a great instrumental.

So great, in fact, it was a placeholder theme for The Incredibles, going by the arrangement that played in the teaser trailer with Bob trying to put his belt on.

I thought OHMSS was used as the main music for Goldeneye 64, but it's been a while since I played it

I've always liked the Louis Armstrong track from that movie too. I think it was the last music Armstrong recorded. It's probably my favorite song of any Bond movie. Again Barry does an excellent job with delicate orchestration.

I embedded John Barry's title music for Seance on Wet Afternoon. This was one of his first soundtracks, a creepy slow-burning English gem featuring a young-ish Richard Attenborough. Well worth watching.

Wow, I wasn't expecting to be so impressed with Opfergang. I'd put it up there with Olympia as one of the best of these (granted I haven't seen too many others).

Opfergang is the German cousin of Jack Cardiff's Technicolor dreamworld films where every stitch of clothing and every inch of production design is meticulously planned and color-coordinated to create some of the most sumptuous images in all of cinema. I notice cinematographer Bruno Mondi had a very productive career that spanned decades. I will be paying more attention to him from now on.

When watching Third Reich dramas you're sensitive to any commentary/propaganda concerning the war effort or daily life in Germany. On the surface Opfergang seems like a lavish escapist melodrama a la Douglas Sirk with a central theme of self-sacrifice. But there are other points of interest. One of which is the nagging reminder of mortality, introduced by a grandfather clock bearing a placard that reads "One of these hours will be your last". And a major plot point is the terminal illness of one of the main characters. This angle is rather morbid given the grim direction of the war in 1944. However I think the film had a dual purpose: acknowledge the hardship while seeking to cheer up the German people by transporting them to a world of opulence and splendor, just as the main character Albrecht seeks to cheer up his somber, Nietzsche-reading in-laws by thrusting open the windows to let in the sunshine.

This film is bad. Adding it to the list just because it's from Turkey is not a good enough reason, and having a long monologue isn't that either.

If they were then I'd like you guys to add

>Kurtlar Vadisi: Irak

a stunning, engaging, bold and provocative story, terrific acting (for being a turkish film) and some innovative action sequences. Turkey's answer to Sholay basically.

If you guys are into monologues, then why the hell isn't Network or Altered States on your list?

I think, in context, it means hard to penetrate films and today lesser known, overlooked or lesser known outside of country of origin. There are already many lists with quality but somewhat popular films, so these lists try to create something of value. But of course when there's 250 limit there will be a lot of known films and we didn't even hit 250.

A new article lobs accusations of wrongthink at the giallo genre: misogyny of course, homophobia for negative portrayals of lesbians (as if Italian Catholics take kindly to homewrecking dykes)

https://brightlightsfilm.com/wp-content/cache/all/design-killing-giallo-bava-argento-blood-fetish/

I'm generally unsatisfied when horror films are condemned as misogynistic. It strikes me as lazy and simplistic analysis: "The director kills women... because he hates women!" Deeper in the article I think they stumbled upon a better explanation:

Victims must always be enviable: either beautiful and sexy or rich and swellegant, or all of the above, so the average moviegoer can rejoice in their dismemberment with a clear conscience.

This fits into my personal theory that ghoulish horror directors "kill" gorgeous women as revenge for rejecting them earlier in life. Just look at pictures of some of those directors, what decent girl would date such creeps? If true, this is slightly different (and more complex) than boring old misogyny.

>It's happening right now with Venezuela

Yes i agree, when the big boys play nobody bats an eye until someone does it way over the top or you want to play in their field. But as a former citizen, if there ever was a country that needs a full-on invasion and get its population swiftly decimated by half to return it into a discernible society i assure you, it's Venezuela. And i'm not being hyperbolic.

And also yes, Interpol lost the respect of absolutely everyone after that little stunt. In my respective area there's been a massive influx of chinese money, much of it going to illicit activities, currently they are paying cartels to find and smuggle exotic goods, including near-extinction species like the Vaquita or the threatened Totoaba. A week ago the navy shot and killed a bunch of unarmed modest fishermen because they were caught with tens of thousand of dollars plus a bunch of said fish, and it's not only here, fentanyl shenanigans are also picking mass media.

I don't know which side was the beast cop on but i bet it had something to do with it, and it's hilarious Interpol can investigate just about everything except the sudden disappearance of important figures such as their own president.

>>14561

Same here and for the same time, that's why i don't post in the last film watched thread anymore because i would merely spam it with chinese stuff that is fun and entertaining but really don't bring anything transcendental in terms of anything other than action or editing.

Beast Cops i don't remember finding a good quality rip but i read it cleaned the critics and cinemas in 1997-8, i do remember that was supposed to be one of the first films i wanted to watch after i saw the irreverent Knock Off, made same year and has some of the same personnel, one of the supporting actors i think was one of the leads in Cops.

After that i saw martial arts vehicles and some other film house stuff along with blue films. They really were massive in their heyday, in 10 years they made boatloads of tastPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

>>2689

ZPG / Zero Population Growth is similar to Logan's Run in aesthetics, setting and theme. The film imagines a near future where humanity is plagued by overpopulation, pollution, and other relics of 1970s alarmism (nuclear fallout, peak oil, etc.). Since the urgency of most of these problems has diminished, the film's basic weakness is that it invested too heavily in the theories of its time.

However, this film is still somewhat prophetic. Like Logan's Run, ZPG features an authoritarian government which tightly manages the life and death of its citizens. To fight overpopulation, the rulers have issued an edict banning childbirth for a period of 30 years. This "solution" mirrors reality a bit -- of course it's resembles China's One Child Policy, but also recent controversies where Britain's NHS made end-of-life decisions for a child against the wishes of the parents. Allowing domineering bureaucrats to become arbiters of your child's life is certainly frightening.

A dystopian film often involves a rebellion against the established order, so (as you can guess) the protagonists of ZPG ignore the edict and conceive a child. Starting a family is an affirmation of traditionalism, self-determination, individualism, and freedom -- ideals which had been cast aside to make way for the stifling conformity of their centrally-planned society. Logan's Run frames the issues in the same way.

Given the all similarities, I initially thought this film was a knockoff of Logan's Run. Actually ZPG was released a few years earlier. So perhaps it was an inspiration for the later, more popular film.

Gene Roddenberry's Genesis II is another example of 1970s fears of a dystopian future. The story involves a New Age-y authoritarian

society where (among other things) sexuality is frowned upon as barbaric. And yes, the main characters rebel and try to escape.

I had never thought to compare Star Trek to 70s dystopian films, but now it stands out that the Enterprise existed in a utopian future. In the 1960s, stories about the future were generally optimistic. Space movies glorified humanity's triumph of science. Several years later, movies reflected a general pessimism about where things were headed.

How did this get approved? It's the worst official poster I've seen in a long time. It looks like the album cover for some crappy band in the mid-90's.

There is your answer. All these companies imitating Netflix for the money are also copying the shitty B movie adaptations of good movies Netflix has been doing.

How many films do you watch per week? Per year?

Do you still go to the cinema?

Do you track your viewing on a website or spreadsheet?

Do you try to complete viewing lists and filmographies, or do you just watch random stuff?

> Stuff from Roman Chalbaud, Luis Roche and Mauri Walerstein

I'm not that guy but I see a few Chalbaud rips available online:

- El pez que fuma (1977) aka The Smoking Fish

- El rebaño de los ángeles (1979) aka The Flock of Angels

- Cangrejo (1982) aka Crab

Nothing from the other two directors

I watch 1-4 per week, 150-200 per year

I don't go to cinema as much as I used to, twice a month at most

I don't track my viewing but I focus on directors I like

When I was unemployed it varied week per week. Usually in the range of 7-14. Now I do one or two a day.

> do you just watch random stuff?

I download random obscure stuff because it can lead to interesting places. Previously I would force myself to watch everything to the end. I think that carries over from my stubbornness against quitting in general. But lately I find myself wanting to stop films that don't hold my interest. I'm thinking about trying an ADD approach to viewing, hop from different films as the mood strikes. I think Raoul Ruiz said he did the same thing with books. He would read a number them at the same time.

While I know this thread is old, I don't see anything wrong with trying to keep the board alive with some discussion somewhere.

>How many films do you watch per week? Per year?

I always try to watch at least 150 movies a year. Sometimes I get too busy to watch movies for weeks, then binge through 20 movies in a few days.

>Do you still go to the cinema?

By the time I might even find an interesting movie from the current year, it isn't even in movie theates anymore. I usually stick to pre-2000 for the most part.

>Do you track your viewing on a website or spreadsheet?

Simple spreadsheet that lists the movie, date released, and whether I liked it or hated it.

>Do you try to complete viewing lists and filmographies, or do you just watch random stuff?

I used to think I watched randomly, but from keeping a list I find I tend to watch in groups of the same decade or genre. If I don't feel like anything is interesting enough, I'll find a list and try to watch something to get me interested in movies again.

Some thoughts from director Nathaniel Dorsky on "devotional cinema"

http://nathanieldorsky.net/About

>In his book Devotional Cinema (2003), Dorsky writes of the long-standing link between art and health as well as the transformative potential of watching film. He also writes of the limitations of film when its vision is subservient to an idea or representative of language description, which can describe a world but does not actually see it.

Matka Joanna od aniolów AKA Mother Joan of the Angels by Jerzy Kawalerowicz is an excellent film. If you like Tarkovsky, Tarr or Dreyer, you'll like this film

Thoughts on this film? I enjoyed it, and thought it was both enjoyable to watch and also had deeper storytelling elements that I enjoyed. I thought the ending was powerful, and I appreciated that some of the climbing was done actually on a mountain (I think).

Sentimental social realism about mountain folk, in a similar vein as How Green Was My Valley.

It's an unexpected Christmas film too. In fact it's very Catholic.
