That shot wasn't even in the movie, it's a photograph ;__;

My vote goes for the mirage scene at the well in LoA

Good call. I think this one is the most recognizable images from a modern American.

So I just rewatched El Topo, and I fucking loved it, even more than my first viewing.
So what are your thoughts on El Topo and Jodorowsky in general, I personally love him, think his films are visually interesting and entertaining, but I'm not one of those nutters who thinks he's some artistic and philosophical genius.

Can you talk more about this? Jodo was in the talks for making Dune and Salvador Dali and Orson Welles were going to be involved?

Color me curious!



It's all in the documentary called Jodorowsky's Dune. You'd probably like it.



>rev up the que, for i sure am hungry…

To watch your documentary!

Is this the worst Best Picture lineup ever?


Best Picture nominees always disappoint so I quit seeking them out. Therefore I have no way to gauge which year is worst. That said, quality seems to be declining in recent years.



Is this a clown question brah?


i mean, dude. it's the fucking oscars. what do you really expect


A serius man was a really disappointment.

It was basicaly like walter mitty which im not sure if its an insult for serious man or a praise for mitty

Back to the Future turns 30 years old today, and that's something worth celebrating

BTTF is my favorite comedy trilogy

I like the earlier collab between Zemeckis and Gale on Used Cars too. While it's not as great as BTTF, there's some hilarious (and politically incorrect) moments…and a sense that the production was driven by youthful exuberance.


These movies are entertaining, but I don't get why they're so loved. It's something about that typical 80's corniness that I despise.

The most commendable thing about them is obviously the art direction, otherwise I don't get the excessive praise.

Grossly affective. There were a few moments where I saw a more of myself than I'm comfortable with. Like when your ability to express an idea is failing and everything comes myopic and retarded. The visual element worked well, but could have been more engaging at times. The social criticism + childhood art scene did it perfectly, though more of exactly that would have been overbearing. the banality of evil/10

How much of the interview was scripted vs improv? I assume you helped make this?

How lucky I am to be on DXM when this is posted.


I think you definitely could have made it more concise and had some variety with the imagery, as well as maybe planning out some shots more. it felt like you were just wandering around his place just shooting whatever, which has merit, but you only need so many random shots of clutter and filth. I would have worked the video game angle more, shown him running over pedestrians in an SUV in GTA or something. the interview was well done

you should've used this for your end credits

ako is his best film, imo


File: 1435555634736.png (794.86 KB, 800x330, 80:33, lysk.png)


Man Without a Map doesn't measure up to those. It's a convoluted neonoir story with some interesting stylistic touches and some others that seem pointless. Too stale overall.

Any recommendations are welcome


You might have a look at the 366 Weird Movies list


The official list is a mix of obvious and somewhat obscure picks. The "weirdest" films on their site are interesting too, maybe even more interesting than the official list:



File: 1434788880022.jpeg (32.56 KB, 318x446, 159:223, pastoral.jpeg)

I'd recommend Terayama. His work is Generally more Difficult and more personal than something like El Topo but there are similarities in the way they approach their surrealism.

Not the best video but this should give you a taste:




That film poster looks like it was done by Suehiro Maruo, that guy does a lot of weirdass stuff. If he did a poster for the film, it must be interesting.

You should watch Dark Star. Jodorowsky was very impressed with it and formed a relationship with the FX designer:

I saw in a modest festival of cinema by science fiction amateurs, a film made without means that I found marvelous: Dark Star. I contacted the boy who had made the special effects: Dan O' Bannon. I was almost with a wolf child. Completely out of conventional reality, O'Bannon was for me a real genius.

Hi, I figured out this was the right place to ask.

I'm looking for these movies:

>Ukigumo - Naruse Mikio

>Woman in the Dunes - Teshigahara

>Narayama Bushikou - Kinoshita Keisuke

Any idea of where I could find them?


Pretty sure woman in the dunes is on YouTube

Yep, found it, embed related.

Sharing the magnets for the other ones too since they weren't so easy to find

>Narayama Bushikou (The Ballad of Narayama)


>working subs


>Ukigumo (Floating Clouds)



For future reference there's a larger thread for requests: >>4155

Anyone familiar with Italian cinema in general? What are some of the must-see movies (from any decade)? I've watched a small chunk going through a dedicated college class but I would like other points of view since there might be some that would trigger Californians.

From what I can remember, I've seen:

La dolce vita

La vita e` bella

Rocco e i suoi fratelli


Roma citta` aperta

Riso amaro

La grande bellezza

Uccellacci e uccellini

Il Gattopardo

I soliti ignoti

Ladri di biciclette


Matrimonio all'italiana

RIP Laura Antonelli, who was in this happy little movie by one of Leone's cinematographers. The blasted British censor would not let the DVD pass uncut…

Obit: http://www.nytimes.com/2015/06/23/movies/laura-antonelli-leading-italian-actress-dies-at-73.html



Gassman is a pretty cool guy. I loved I soliti ignoti so hopefully I can find more like it. I watched a more recent movie called Johnny Stecchino that I really liked too.



Just dropped in to say it's "poliziesco", not poliziottesco



Hm, I think the other term is more common but I didn't know it was poor usage of Italian


> Instead the term poliziottesco, a fusion of the words poliziotto ("policeman") and the same -esco desinence, has prevailed (over the more syntactically-correct Poliziesco all'Italiana) to indicate 1970s-era Italian-produced "tough cop" and crime movies. Recurring elements in poliziotteschi films include graphic and brutal violence, organized crime, car chases, vigilantism, heists, gunfights, and corruption up to the highest levels. The prevalence of Poliziottesco over Poliziesco all'Italiana closely follows the success of the term Spaghetti Western over Western all'Italiana, being shorter and more vivid.

Hello, /film/ - first time board user here. I was wondering if there was anyone who would be able to help me remember the name of a film that I watched when I was younger.

I really can't remember much about the film, other than that it was about a boy who ran away from home at night, had sex with a girl in a swimming pool, and got shot in the desert at the end.

Any help, even shitposting, would be great.


Also, if I violated any rules about "can you identify x", I apologise.

Just watched this in 3d Imax and it's probably the best action movie ever made.

What are your guys thoughts?

My bad.



>literally "I didn't like it therefore it is shit"


/tv/ is a fucking warzone over mad max right now

besides this board is as dead as my grandparents


People are overreacting because this movie was viral marketed as a paradigm changer, feminist flick, and most critics are eating this shit up. It definitely raised the bar for the action genre and showed the world the level of realism that practical effects can deliver, but all the gender-related massive hysteria is just bullshit inherent to the time we live in. I don't think this movie will age well.

RIP Anon's Grandparents



Most of the criticisms about the movie being plotless, or redundant, and about the lack of character development may be true, but there's something that works so fine for the movie just being as it is, perhaps it is like >>4681 says, it's like such an over-the-top post-apocalyptic world that people behave like in a videogame (and actually drive as if they were in Mario Kart). Perhaps it might be a simplistic or silly view of a dystopic world, but the action is executed with such grace that it just feels right.

I'd liked it better if the film actually tried to put in context the wars for natural resources, but the treatment of genre issues was actually well done, since I went expecting hamfisted liberal feminazi bullshit and didn't got any of that (at the end of the day it was just Internet being retarded, as usual), so I felt that there was at least a tiny little semblance of thematical depth in there (at least for an action movie). Or perhaps I'm looking too much into it, but I guess that's because the movie is vague in the first place, it leaves room to imagine that sort of things, something that other modern blockbusters don't do.

Still, clearly Miller wasn't set out to do a complex movie with a compelling plot, characters or depth. He was set out to do an explosive spectacle. And he was greatly successful. A movie should be judged on what it sets to achieve, and it did it masterfully.

What is your favorite special film?

Mine is Agfa 10E56 holographic film

go on…

I'm just an amateur so I can't be very special.

But I like 1940s nitrate, three strip Technicolor, Ultra Panavision 70 and Todd-AO.


Do you guys have any examples of movies that used these?



1940s nitrate - Beauty and the Beast

Three strip Technicolor - The Red Shoes

Ultra Panavision 70 - Ben-Hur

Todd AO - Oklahoma

I haven't seen any of those but I think Submarine is similar to Harold and Maude.

What you've described could be called "popular foreign/indie dramas".

I will recommend Amores Perros, The Celebration, Life is Beautiful, and Paris Texas

i'll be honest dude I don't think you're helping out the board by dumping the posters for the imdb top 100 or whatever


I just wantted to spark discussion, trying to find a middle ground between /film/ and the rest of 8chan.

i just wanted this board to be more active ;_;

well, if hardly anyone is visiting in the first place.. seems like maybe less than 10 guys total. i wish it was more active too

anyways, pic related is possibly the greatest film of all time. it's in a special class of completely absurd scifi, with stuff like logan's run and phantasm, but definitely the best and most ridiculous. same director as deliverance which is interesting

Touch of Evil, saw it recommended on the photography board and decided to give it a go.

Damn what a movie. The opening sequence is beautiful and the story gets better with every scene.

hi /film/

KhanTube (http://cytu.be/r/khantube) is hosting a movie stream tomorrow, we're watching Kusturica's Black cat white cat

sunday, 22 yurotime, 4PM easterntime, 20 UTC

if you're interested in joining us for Balkan Gypsy Madness, consider yourself invited

t. /intl/ (we're not /int/)

2 posts omitted. Click reply to view.



I officially proclaim the stream dead

I'll get the stream up next Saturday, 23 yurotime, 5PM easterntime, 21 UTC

hopefully people show up next time


it's dead because of lack of participation? that's too bad. it would be cool to get a bunch of people watching a foreign film every week.



The stream was pretty lively when I streamed Srečno, Kekec! http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0057525 and Aravt http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2245990, but that's because they're of cultural significance to the board of /int(l)/ (i.e.: dank memes), about 15 guys watching I think.

But last week I first had to move it from Saturday to Sunday so it wouldn't clash with /bane/ stream, then /just/ stream turned out to go for way longer than I expected and simply nobody showed up in the stream. It could be said that they crashed my stream with no survivors…

I'll definitely get the stream up next Saturday, maybe I'll start a bit earlier so I can fit Marquis http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0097839 in as well.

I'm not sure if I'll continue doing the stream though because I'll be pretty busy with studies next month, and if not enough people show up, I just don't feel like watching the movie more or less alone.



I don't know how many of you guys are here, but I'll start a stream today (Saturday), at around 21 yurotime, 3PM easterntime, 19UTC. If there is interest I'll get both Black cat white cat and Marquis through, otherwise just the first one. If you're interested in European movies, come to the stream.



I'm starting the stream in about an hour
