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.

>I'd like to see more Muay Thai related film

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?

I'm trying to get a friend of mine into patrician films, I told him we'd watch Werckmeister Harmonies but I want him to see it in good quality and he doesn't have a KG account or anything... I remember we streamed a couple of films back in the film club days, can anyone tell me how to do that? What's a good site? ty


Why can't he just download it and play it himself?


Man i was making a list of Hungarian films and that one didn't appear anywhere

And reading stuff it says it's one of the best in recent years

On topic, what this lad said >>6831 , there seems to be a good torrent on Kickass, 1.39GB with 7 seeders

Or you meant "good quality" as in 720p minimum?


never streamed myself, but I remember people spamming streams on cytube and connectcast

it really should be possible to sync playback of a file that both of you have while logged into some chat service

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

Away from hollywood, can anyone here give me some recommendations for good films from different places in the world?

Cairo Station is recommended by me

But your question is pretty broad. A lot of the posts on this board could fit your criteria. It depends what you like watching.

I can't hate on Jean Dujardin because Oscar voters are stupid. Even if he's not a great actor I think he can be pretty funny under the right circumstances. So I gave this a chance...

It's a French comedy with an interesting spin on an old concept about trying to outwit death (who appears at your house in the form of a man), but it's all executed so limply you wonder why it was ever made. It sets up for black comedy but doesn't pay off. Writer/director Bertrand Blier might be getting too old?


File: 1454057420082.jpg (116.4 KB, 698x978, 349:489, Confessions_of_a_Police_Ca….jpg)

This has to be one of Franco Nero's best roles and one of the best Italian cop movies. The genre is often pulpy and violent but Confessions of a Police Captain is less action and more brooding. The film gives a cynical critique of Italian society and the complex web of corruption that dominates it.


File: 1454089768187.jpg (25.66 KB, 855x345, 57:23, springnightsummernight.jpg)

Saw this last night, a rare and long forgotten piece of American independent cinema. It's main value is ethnographic, providing a realistic depiction of impoverished rural American, and is really the only thing that kept me awake through the amateurish editing and pacing, as well as some rare moments of solid cinematography.


this thread kills the 8ch

we need a new one.

Finally watched The Fountain.

Great movie, almost cried.

When you make a movie about life you have to touch death, and this movie really touched it, in almost every possible way. Its sad that the criticism I see for this movie is more about hur dur trees cannot live outside in space, instead of actually taking the meaning in.

Was the 1970s the best time for cinema?


File: 1454289633714.jpg (173.94 KB, 1156x1514, 578:757, A-Decade-Under-the-Influen….jpg)

depends how you define "best"

it was a high point for Hollywood as the studios collapsed under their own weight to be replaced by a more personal style of film making. and since we got the blockbuster near the end of the 70s, the decades that followed were plagued by the need to entertain the lowest common denominator.




as for the rest of the world you might roll back the range to include the mid to late 60s. then you get movements like the japanese, french, czech new waves which were very significant in their respective countries.


Can someone reedit this picture and put on cinema that doesn't suck film school cock?

>kramer vs kramer

Go back to your film studies freshman.


Speaking for Hollywood... maybe

It was the peak before the concept of Blockbusters and Action-Packed Heat kicked in (80's Hollywood lack big dogs regarding cinema "like it used to be")

But the 60's and 50's were also very good

Overall i think, my opinion at least, 70's was the best for US

It varies in other countries, the "golden ages" or so to speak:

South Korea is the 00's

Italy and France have the 60's

Mexico has the late 40's/ early 50's

Japan late 50's / early 60's

Argentina dare i say the 00's too

Thing is some of those went on to have more good years later on (or had them earlier) some others have their first taste of a good industry

File: 1453604325619.jpg (66.33 KB, 1088x417, 1088:417, Sundance 2016.jpg)


Anyone on /tv/ attending? I was thinking about going this year, but decided next year would be better so my buddy can come with.

Which movies are you most excited about? Which movies are getting positive buzz? Which one will be the crown jewel?

Discuss all things Sundance and Robert Redford.

The ones I'm interested in so far:

>Goat (frat-hazing drama featuring Nick Jonas)

>Other People (black comedy featuring Jesse Plemmons and Molly Shannon)

>Manchester by the Sea (community/family drama featuring my boy Kyle Chandler; also Casey Affleck)

>Christine (Rebecca Hall plays an anchor who an heroes on a live broadcast)

I'm really rooting for Rebecca Hall. She's a very underrated actress who has never relied on looks to get a role. Then again, I'll always root for a movie to be good—it's a win for the fans of the medium.


I have no answers, only more questions.

Was Sundance "better" before so many movie stars started showing up?

Are there any independent studios left? Most "indie films" seem to come from branches of large established Hollywood studios with names like "Sony Pictures Classics".

And what is the best film festival in the US ... this or New York Film Festival or something else?

Topic posted in three places and it will be here the longest


I'd gladly watch most of these int'l documentaries http://www.sundance.org/festivals/sundance-film-festival/program/WDC-guide

also interested in documentaries about James Foley, JT Leroy, Christine Chubbuck


The trend for their American documentaries seems to be "Congratulations viewer, your worldview was correct all along!" That's not very challenging or subversive.

As for the others I might try Antibirth

Hey, /film/, this is basically the only internet community on film that I enjoy visiting, maybe you guys can give me feedback on the short film I made recently. It was made with zero budget and I was the only crew, so don't expect too much. But I'm reasonably happy with how it turned out, other than not having a tripod/steadicam.

Here it is: https://vimeo.com/138888895

OP here, I doubt anyone cares, but I'm in the middle of editing a proper short, 20-30 mins, with a script, multiple actors, sound, etc... But in the mean time, I made another dumb little short with a friend. Here it is:


Also, its best watched with headphones because I've found the soundtrack is too bassy/low for my computer speakers and ends up inaudible



sounds like fun

Thanks, I'd love to hear feedback. I also made this one the next day. Its pretty low key but considering my only resources were one friend, one light, and a tripod, and the whole thing took four hours from conception to filming to editing, I think it turned out pretty well



The first video reminded me of an interesting book on the perception of time which I spent 15 minutes searching in vain for the title

The second video made me think we should try another project here where people shoot and submit low budget horrors



Thanks for the feedback. Let me know if you ever find the name of the book. And if the horror thing does end up happening, this will be my submission haha

The seriousness of movie accidents is overstated. Individuals perish, art is forever. I'm kidding, but labor's a lot more likely to die building a house than they are doing wild stunts. I think it's only a juicy topic because death by Hollywood puts the whole entertainment complex to blame, implicating all of us in the audience with red hands. Fittingly melodramatic.

OP has a good point. More interesting than bloody gossip is Rossellini describing seeing his actors as furniture.



iirc hitchcock said something about actors being cattle


Much like other things, the behaviour of an auteur genius can very easily be mistaken for the work of a complete incompetent without looking at the final product. I wouldn't encourage this kind of thing unless the actors thought it was worth it.



You fucking take care of good furniture and cattle, though.
