I'm looking for movies with a certain aesthetic, see pics related. Basically an 80s photography feel with vibrant and sharp colors, lots of lights, neons, night-time, a certain dream-like quality. Wish I could express myself better but I'm bad at English, hopefully you understand what I'm looking for by looking at the images. Doesn't have to be necessarily an 80s movie (as you can see, I included some Eyes Wide Shut screencaps), just this type of aesthetic. I already seen most of Wong Kar Wai films which would be an easy suggestion. Throw at me everything that comes to your mind. Also discuss any aesthetics in film that you like/reminds you of the 80s (not only the type I requested), just for the sake of discussion

Excluding new releases, which films do you want to watch but cannot find?

I'm intrigued by Once, an allegorical dialogue-free feature that premiered at Cannes in 1974. The film could be fascinating or boring as hell, but the soundtrack of lo-fi ambient electronics would make it worthwhile to find out.


It's reasonable to assume the film still exists somewhere. Hopefully it becomes publicly available eventually.

Fair enough point.



<Personal issues and emotions don't translate well into art

isn't the main attraction of art that skilled artists can translate any any psyxic thing into a communicible form?

nothing must be understood, but your experience of an art product is often going to be better if you understand the art product. though you're right about the 'understanding' card: if you say "you just don't understand the art product, if you understood the art product, you would understand this", you are not really helping anyone understand anything; and there is a sort of person who will leave arguments like that with a feeling of discouragement as though he cannot understand art, which tends to cause him to stop making attempts to understand art.



please, instead of telling us that we need to do X to understand it, help us understand it. tell us about it. give a description of it's essential qualities that make it what it is. and don't just say 'ineffability of art', art is not ineffable, maybe some particular art products are, but then you must give a good reason for us to believe that that art product is ineffable.


<since he isn't European he doesn't get a pass to be artsy

that's false reasoning, though the conclusion is true: nobody gets a pass to anything based on the parts of their identity which they cannot control. if being european and making art is sufficient for that art to be considered good, then why is my art not considered good? i'm european, i make bad art. despicable. or maybe my art is just misunderstood and ineffable



^this nigga goin wild

First things, first; I didn't even said that "art is ineffable" trash you came with (which is funny you enter the debate showing yourself that way). On the other hand, you're misunderstanding making an axioma to defend your personal thoughts for not being capable to understand art with the inherent condition of an art being expressed by feelings which is where I was focusing the argument in the first place. You want to go wild and jump out the window, it's ok for me.

>That said.

I think I was very clear pointing a direction to "understand" what emotional films like the one Gallo did, anyways, I'll give you both more hints since you asked.

Add to your wishlist films directed by sensible directors like Ozu, Ford, Bresson or Gotard (among others); people who understood the importance of gestures and so did Gallo (trough his egomaniac ways) in both of his movies.

Aside of that, you can see in BB a lot of improvisation, a thing which is completely forgotten these days, just watch Cassavettes's Faces you'll understand it quickly.

Btw, cut both of you the "product" thing since we're talking of art manifestations not industry little toys. You're welcome.

The Prussian Cur (1918)

WWI anti-German propaganda directed by Raoul Walsh. This poster is rather interesting as we see Uncle Sam about to intervene with Lady Liberty and "DEMOCRACY" behind him. The first of many such interventions!

<The film's director, Raoul Walsh, called it his "rottenest picture ever" for its anti-German sentiment, while its star Miriam Cooper (Walsh's wife) called it the worst film in which she had ever appeared.

The film includes a depiction of a Canadian who was crucified by German soldiers. The shocking story was based on real accounts from the war, though difficult to verify it was effective war propaganda. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Crucified_Soldier

Let's have a thread specifically for longer content.

I don't watch television series since I'd prefer spend that time on, say, 10 completely different films. But I'm open to watching mini-series, a format situated between regular feature films and TV series. (It's just rare that I actually do it.)

Has /film/ seen any good mini-series (or old serials)? What long films have you seen, did you watch them in one day, and were they worth the time?

File: 327210d25c66def⋯.png (1.24 MB, 1196x720, 299:180, Je t'aime je t'aime.1968.png)

Je t'aime, je t'aime (1968)

Science fiction is used in this film as a framework for Alain Resnais to explore familiar themes of memory, time, love, loss, death. Claude Ridder is selected for a secret government experiment focused on time travel. He will travel back one year, stay there for one minute, and return to the present. But the experiment does not work as expected. Instead of returning to the present, Ridder hops to another time in his past, and then another. He re-lives a random sequence of abrupt moments from work, from vacation, and from his romantic relationships.

The events of Ridder's life come to him just like memories come to each of us, fragmented and often unexpected. As a viewer you piece together the story arc of Ridder's life from these discrete, disjointed moments. The story gets more interesting as macabre aspects of Ridder's past emerge.

Resnais's background as an editor was likely a major factor in developing the concept for Je t'aime, je t'aime. The film uses carefully chaotic editing to create one of the best cinematic representations of a free associative, self-reflective mind. Ridder's time travel is functionally an introspection, an examination of his own life. Introspection is further emphasized by the "time machine" itself, which is a small chamber that looks like a brain. Ridder enters that brain in order to enter his own brain.

Have any of you thought about some music being powerful enough to being an equivalent to film reaching the status of a quasi/pseudo-film. Even if not as vividly articulated music always paints pictures in the mind which can then be in turn related to the aesthetics of film. Music that can be best met with a match or easily painted pictures besides concept albums and initial prog rock is music with texture and sonic landscapes like kosmischeklang, early post-rock, and some post-punk/no-wave but I'd also like to hear the genres that paint a film in your head. I'm not saying the two mediums are interchangeable or trying to break the boundaries of art but it'd be nice to discuss and break up the monotony of the threads on the front pages.

I love films set in those forgotten places of the United States, wacky towns with wacky people in the middle of the country, stillness, comfyness. It just seems like a parallel dimension where nothing happens and at the same time everything can happen. I've never been in the US but my mind often gets lost in those landscapes from film, remembering memorable fictional people. I love westerns too but let's keep them out the discussion and discuss contemporary (post WW2 till now) settings. What are your favorite films with a distinct American setting? what are your favorite stills, places, characters from those works? Do you have real-life anecdotes of those places? if you live in metropolitan areas, how do you feel about rural America?

Uve Boll's a good or at least decent director who willingly decided to make trash and tank his reputation in order to exploit tax loopholes. He's legitimately one of the best, and probably last, great avant-garde filmmaker of our time. Postal (2007) is a flawed masterpiece.

> Jean Giono, the author of the short story upon which the movie is based, wrote the story after American editors in 1953 asked him to write a few pages about an unforgettable character. They intended him to write about a real unforgettable character, but he created the fictional Elezeard Bouffier. When the editors objected that no Bouffier had died in Banon, he donated the story to all humanity. It was soon after published by Vogue in 1954. Many people have assumed that Bouffier is a real person.

<"Isle of Flowers" (Portuguese: "Ilha das Flores") is a 1989 Brazilian short film by Jorge Furtado.

Has this been posted before? Maybe not because I can't find a very good version of it on youtube. It should be PT audio w/ EN subs, but those versions are shit quality, so here is one with EN audio https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gdtvyiHuTSo

It's a good short, a tad overrated, but worth seeing. It's got a frenetic pace of free associated images concerning the life and death of a tomato.

An all-time classic.

Tried asking this on the other chan a couple times in vain, but I've always wondered about this line in Daisies - “This film is dedicated to those whose sole source of indignation is a messed-up trifle.” What exactly does this mean? What was it referring to? And how would you interpret the film as a whole? Also, post Czech new wave

Nice music by Ilja Zeljenka. I'd like to find some of his OSTs, but I don't know if any of them were released. He was composer for >>7763 too.

I remember hearing that Zdenek Liska's widow would not give permission for soundtracks, because she said the films were the optimal (and thus only) way to experience his music. I guess that changed a bit with the release of Morgiana and a couple others. I'd like to hear more though...Liska was as prolific as Morricone IIRC.

A new direction for conspiracy films? I can't think of many others that have the full endorsement of the media and political elite.

8.5 on imdb btw. I'm a little spooked.




Philosophy eventually collides with esoterics.

Based on the trailer, this OKC documentary has the same type of theories we've heard about 9/11 -- a truck bomb could not have caused that type of damage so there must have been additional bombs in the building. To me this angle seems pointless.

More interesting is the Feds' tenuous connection to the perpetrators. As with 9/11 there were undercover operations in the orbit of the OKC bombing suspects.

Also interesting is the story of Kenneth Michael Trentadue


and his brother's search (in vain) for surveillance video of McVeigh parking the truck.

Is anyone into VHS collecting? I've noticed it gaining popularity lately. Just enough time has passed for a nostalgia appeal.

What are the best movies shot on VHS? Do you even have the patience to watch a full production shot on VHS?

I will recommend the shot-for-shot remake of Raiders of the Lost Ark.

bumping since ive been thinking in collecting this stuff and super 8 films

any good site or youtuber to watch?

>inb4 ebay



What types of stuff do you want to collect? Movies or weird stuff that's exclusive to those formats?

I'd say the first step is to check out local thrift stores to see what you find.



both, i guess?

but i dont want to overpay for stuff or get something that will stay salable in the future

A good documentary, and probably a good place to start

On ICM you get ranked for how many films you've watched on Official Lists.


There are 190 official lists, some for the obvious (IMDb Top 250) and others for more interesting exploration (Jonathan Rosenbaum's Essential Films). There are lists by decade, by country, by genre.

You win awards as you get closer to completing a list.

It's handy and kind of fun.




My reviews are shit though, don't judge based on those


I found another one of these sites. Has anyone used it?


It looks like they are trying to deliver good recommendations based on your ratings. I don't know if it works well for people who watch unknown films.

Lately I noticed More Like This on imdb pages sometimes has interesting recommendations.



From a data mining perspective, by definition you won't have as good recommendations for obscure films as you will for those with a significant training pool (ie mainstream movies)
