File: 1411607902857.jpg (69.69 KB, 424x600, 53:75, Uncle Boonmee.jpg)


Did anyone ever catch this?

I saw it in the cinema during a festival, but I had trouble staying awake. Either that's the film's subject matter being very effective on me, or, the film was really boring.

It's nothing he hasn't done before but I didn't mind that and liked it nevertheless.

I would suggest you give it another try or check out Tropical Malady or Syndromes and a Century, although both are similarly slow.


I thought it was pretty unremarkable honestly, although I would be willing to give it another try as well as trying some of his other work.


This film is not meant for europeans.



Neither is it meant for locals

23 month bump!!

It's still the only thing I've seen from this guy. I'd give it a thumbs-up with reservations similar to what people mentioned here


You're not a fan? What Thai films do you like?

Can we discuss Apichatpong Weerasethakul's body of work?


Sadly, I have only seen Tropical Malady so far. I thought its second half was absolute film wizardry, powerful moving bliss trascending language and experience as I have rarely witnessed in the cinema medium. My eyes were burning in a mindfuck of significant proportion. Shit was kvlt.


On-topic: I have no definite feelings for Weerasethakul's body of work. He seems like an interesting person to hang out with tough.


He's very good at making his films seem transcendental. The weird, hypnotic mood of Uncle Boonmee was unlike anything I'd ever experienced. He seems fastinated by the idea of reincarnation, and UBWCRPL is probably the best film to encapsulate that. I'd definitely check it out if I were you.

What do you guys think of the whole "cinema only lasted a century" opinion that seems to be common among many great directors?

2 posts omitted. Click reply to view.



dying people want to believe they were important when they weren't and are eventually forgotten

like those people crying of the youth or expecting ww3 any moment now


i'd say that a load of shit. perhaps hollywood died in the late 70s, but that's just about the time that independent film took off. i mean, maybe cinema "proper" as in a 2 hour film is winding down, but look at all the creativity pouring out on youtube or similar



>who else

Godard, Greenaway, Rossellini, Kaurismaki



"only"? A whole century is not that bad for an "invention without any future" as Louis Lumiere in 1896.

Anyway I don't think the cinema died. There's always been good and bad movies, it's as simple as that. Even nowadays there's still good movies.

As long as you have something to say...



That's overblown to me, especially the 'technological is bad' kind of angle as >>7730 said.

More tech has the bad side of increasing needed resources for films, but more tech also has the good side of making it easy to get started or try newer things.

I thought it fizzled out. The Celebration is quite nice but I never explored the movement very much. Come to think of it I haven't seen anything from Denmark in a long time.

I think it's more enjoyable to watch cheaply produced movies that aren't so self-conscious about their methods.


open hearts (great susan bier flick, she has some other great stuff too), the celebration, breaking the waves (spiritually but not technically dogma), celebration, mifune's last dream. the movement died out in the early 00's as the price of digital filmmaking equipment started to make filmmaking more accessible (one of the goals of dogma 95)



Is there a style now that is similar to dogme?

If it's okay for me to just beg here, what are some films involving alien space? I might be okay with their being a bit lowbrow - perhaps I can't expect every recommendation to be Stalker or Solaris, but then I'm not exactly looking for something of a human philosophical space, anyway: The thing is that I wish to see a world fundamentally unlike our own (or fundamentally unlike what we would see to have made our own, anyway) rendered as vividly - as coherently - as possible. Think cosmic horror, perhaps.

It's hard to get a more lowbrow view of alien space than Gayniggers from Outer Space, a classic cross-cultural documentary on human relations. Similar in quality is the masterfully-directed Garzey's Wing, notable for its high-quality English dub and deep storyline told through distinctly Japanese cinematography instead of expository dialogue.

Many creators who try to pressure the viewer into emotions with blatant drama and special effects should weep when they see it.

Also, while being /film/ material on the West, it is one of the most watched movies of general public in ex-USSR area.

Anybody know where I can get a copy (digital or physical) of A Fugitive from the Past (1965) with english subtitles? Been meaning to watch it forever.



Whats up guys anyone interested in collaborating to make money selling bluray movies and 4k porn. I'm a noob in networking and I'm not a programmer but I know how to get content and I have close to 100 Bluray remuxes and counting on storage and some 4k porn. I don't bother with anything lesser quality. I have 1Gb connection and can nothing but time. So if anyone wants to talk about doing something let me know. Thanks.



I don't understand this scheme or who would buy them

Usually a big reason for buying a bluray is to get the retail packaging, booklet, etc


Then why are you commenting inconnu? And I am thinking of a streaming site or movie download site that is invite only and passworded. Movies would be added daily for download of streaming.

I've been really obsessed with Douglas Sirk and the lineage of directors he influenced. Rainer Werner Fassbinder, Pedro Almodóvar and Todd Haynes specifically. Could someone recommend some modern or classic melodramas or comedies with strong colors, aesthetics similar to 50's Hollywood and central female characters? This can also be gen. discussion thread for Sirk and his style.

I've seen more black and white "women's films" than color melodramas. Do any grills post here btw? It depends how strictly you define this category, I can recommend these:


The Snake Pit

All About Eve

Queen Christina

The Good Earth

Wuthering Heights

The Letter

The Little Foxes

Mrs. Miniver


Brief Encounter

Letter From an Unknown Woman

Mrs. Miniver was an interesting piece of wartime propaganda but I don't know if it counts as 'melodrama'.

Mankiewicz and Ophüls are good picks though.


File: outrage503.jpg (95.76 KB, 705x556, 705:556, outrage503.jpg)


The Good Earth could be a stretch too (but everyone should see it anyway)

I forgot about Ida Lupino, particularly Outrage (1950) but I think she made a few others that would also qualify.

This is probably the best film MTV has ever produced. I came in with no expectations except that it made me feel uncomfortable to watch as a kid. Alexander Payne deserves more recognition for his work.

Has anyone read the novel?

I like Alexander Payne but I've only seen About Schmidt and Sideways.


> This is probably the best film MTV has ever produced

Based on the list I'm inclined to agree, sight unseen. Payne seems like the most competent film director in the bunch. In fact it's a little odd that he'd be involved with an MTV project at all.

I'm at work right now but will watch it when I can.


I feel like in 1999 mtv still had a shred of credibility, I bet Payne saw it as an opportunity to not only get the movie made, but have the mtv marketing juggernaut behind his project as well.

I haven't seen pootie tang or black dynamite, someone should ask cucktino. He knows everything there is to know about bbcs, blacksploitation and i haets witey.

Thanks. I just watched that. This rip isn't perfect (some low-bitrate color distortion) but it's clearly better than the earlier one.

It's hard to say why it's not easier to find. The film is based on a Dostoyevsky story so it works well. One minor complaint is the robotic acting.

What else do people like from Robert Bresson?

Can ISIS' propaganda films be considered art?


Only if you're Post Modern piece of subhuman trash


Shit art, maybe.



of course they are art, more so than a lot of things because they are designed with a message and audience in mind


File: 1463451782570.webm (1.07 MB, 1280x720, 16:9, isis arrows.webm)

They're a modern day Triumph des Willens when it comes to the kind of influence they're going to have on film. The sound, editing, framing, etc. is all very distinct even as the video directors are obviously trying to imitate video games and Hollywood. I think the reason the ISIS videos are so striking is because they have such a unique subject matter and viewpoint.

You can bet your ass that film makers are going to be stealing shots from ISIS videos for decades to come.

There's a decent collection of ISIS vids over on >>>/islamicstate/ iirc



now the question should be: is it good art?

File: 1427927363773.jpeg (1.48 MB, 2175x3000, 29:40, KingOfKings.jpeg)


With Easter and Passover this week, it's an opportune time to think about cinematic depictions of faith and religion. The film to spur the discussion is Cecil B. DeMille's silent account of the adult life of Jesus Christ.

> In a genre that deserves the best that artists can offer but is too often plagued by mediocrity, DeMille's flawed but powerful The King of Kings remains one of Hollywood’s most remarkable achievements. ~~ Decent Films

> Whether you’re religious or not, King of Kings is a monumental technical achievement of its era. Most notable are its impressive cinematography, ghostly special effects which must have been shocking in its day, and the appearance of an early form of color in two of its scenes — a two-strip Technicolor predecessor that remains one of few uses of color in a silent film. ~~ AMC Movie Guide


In addition to discussing The King of Kings, I think we should broaden the scope to evaluate other portrayals of religion onscreen. Do religious films face unique challenges that other films do not? What positive and negative traits stand out in the films you've seen? Is there a tradeoff between the sacred and the entertaining?

how did i do?


I didn't watch it with sound, but i liked it, reminds me of Ulive


Well done. I enjoy watching a nicely edited stream of footage

What software did you use and how many video clips did you start with?

One major problem is you think this is /tv/


Well done. Like >>7208 I'm curious to know more details. Also that archive site is cool, it's a good idea to edit together something from public domain clips, I might try that myself



thanks man.



glad you liked it. i used adobe premiere.

i started with a few thematic ideas and found 20 or so clips i thought captured this, which ended up at about 60 videos from the archive total.

overall ~40 hours, i don't know if that's a lot for these compilations - but i did realize i was a dumb fuck after for not using some beat-matching program to help with the synchronization.


I feel like I don't really get what you're trying to accomplish cinematically. The content and theme is good but as a film collage I find it pretty uninteresting.

The music clashes with the editing. The former even with the repetitive electronic beat has a dreamy overtone to it which the latter fails to capture. Take away the music and it's still aesthetically unaffecting.
