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.

Also, there's a new video essay called "The Vanity Tables of Douglas Sirk"

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.


(Is Pootie Tang better or worse than Black Dynamite?)

You guys might like "The Passion of Martin", Alexander Payne's UCLA graduate student thesis



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.

ITT: Request certain premises, concepts and etc. that you'd like to see in a film, and others will suggest films fitting, or similar to, those ideas.

I'd like to see more Muay Thai related film, but stuff that's not just about the fighting; With actual drama going on, with the fights being sort of a glue holding it together. OGF was the closest to this I found, but I wish there was more fighting throughout, not necessarily just for the sake of having an action scene, but to pose a setting in which further exposition could be presented and to make a cohesive pattern out of the few fight scenes that are actually there, so they don't feel so sudden.

Perhaps The Killer Reserved Nine Seats might be the one I'm looking for, but this movies are hard to find, do you by chance have any working link (in Italian with subs)?

Or do you know where can I find it?



Yes, it's on PTP but that's a hard site to get into.

Most rips of the new bluray have the English dub only. Stupid scene rippers.

An older rip has Italian audio but it's barely better than VHS image quality.



you need to check your email. invite was sent friday.



Got the older rip, decent giallo, the good thing about it was the atmosphere, created by that location in the old, partially ruined theatre, I've come to enjoy things like nonsensical plot, gratuitous nudity and poor dubbing/acting of those movies, it's all part of their charm.

But as it turns out that other one The Clown at Midnight was the one I was looking for. I have no idea why was it in Italian when I saw it as a boy, since it's Canadian. The poor image quality of my TV probably lead me to believe than it was older than it actually was. But I watched bits and pieces, and it looked so beyond terrible that my urge to rewatch it has disappeared completely. Thanks man.

That makes me wonder - has there been serious fighting films based on the strip mall martial arts that they teach to 8 year olds? I don't know much about the different fighting styles but I've never heard of a Tae Kwon Do action movie (for example). I get the feeling that it's not as "tough" or complicated as other techniques?

Did you have time to see anything else from Rivette before watching this one?

I've seen a handful from him at random, not following ratings or guides, and it was all pretty impressive/distinctive in different ways.

Your impression of OUT reminds me a little of Celine and Julie, which seemed like it was going to be aimlessly long and uneventful. But the more I watched the more I was sucked into it.

I just watched Paris Belongs to Us to see how Rivette got started.

It begins as a typical drama about a group of young artists in the city. Sometimes these sorts of movies can be a little dry if nothing much happens.

However this story adds an interesting dimension with noirish elements of paranoia, mystery and fatalism. The result lies somewhere between Cassavetes and Kiss Me Deadly. A solid first feature.

Now I'm interested to read some of Rivette's writing for Cahiers... I don't suppose anyone has a recommendation?

Hi /film/. I've been thinking about starting a film blog, which I've done a few times before but I always give up on it. This time I'm going to try to be more committed to it, and as most people here seem to watch good movies and have interesting thoughts on them, I thought it might be kind of cool to reach out to you guys and see if anyone was interested in contributing some film writing.

I don't have any specific angle in mind, I was probably just going to write a few hundred words on whatever movies I've been watching recently, but I would be open to more structured ideas for recurring columns (i.e. a column covering all the Zatoichi movies or films of a certain director or country, whatever). I would also be open to making the whole thing more focused if anyone would be interested, one potential idea I had was covering "New Waves" of various countries. But I'll see what everyone wants to do.

As long as the writing is thoughtful and interesting I don't really care what the movies are, only restriction would be none of the really mainstream Hollywood stuff like Star Wars and Superhero movies, but I doubt anyone would want to write about that anyway. I don't expect this to go anywhere but I think it could be fun. If any of you are interested, let me know, I'm flexible and open to suggestions. Here's the initial site I made, subject to change: https://moviesfilmscinemablog.wordpress.com/

Pretty funny, although the design of the site isn't really my concern right now. I just used a Wordpress preset, I will change it later but for now I'm more focused on content



So, you want to make your own Cahiers Du Cinema?



Damn that article about hing was pretty damn good, keep them coming, you have some talent for writing



I just want to make something. I see a lot of good discussion about movies on this board and I feel like with just a little bit of polish and effort people could turn their thoughts into something readable that can escape the insularity of the board and be visible to more people and maybe inspire them to watch something different, or think of the things they have watched in a different way.


Thanks, I plan to keep writing stuff and putting it up and hopefully other people will get on board soon enough
