Would it be morally just watching the highest tier films while eating McDonalds.

Also this isn't shitposting, I'm dead serious and need your opinions, I eat it weekly and may as well enjoy it with great movies.

I never explicitly said that. I agree, eating takes away from the experience but still.


That's a good idea actually, some roasted nuts and some cranberry juice would do, a more subtle taste would help focus equally on the film and food.


I tried it yesterday, it was pretty good, so was the film, I'll try it later today as well if I'm still awake, or alive, hopefully neither.



Jokes on you I'm behind a proxy.

I'm sure almost everyone knows about Mitchell and Webb by now. They've made a lot of funny content for TV and radio. Here's a clip from one of their lesser known pilots.

I think it's interesting how there's very few comedy duos in the United States anymore. Maybe the comedy duo is more popular in the UK. Michell and Webb also do plenty of radio sketch comedy. That format definitely doesn't exist in the US.

Hey, /film/, thought I would start a thread on independent film makers that browse here. Just finished my fantasy film two years in the making, working on some final music selections (very minimalist).

We wanted to make a basic fantasy film that is more like Conan The Barbarian and Dark Souls, with some cinematography similar to what you would see in Samurai Jack at times. 13th Warrior was also a big inspiration. The plot isn't complicated, but it is more about the shots and the atmosphere of the film. We shot this over the course of two years for about 5000.

The film is called Spriggan. Looking to release it in about a week or so to Amazon, etc. Take it to some festivals as well.

What are some projects you are working on, or roadblocks that you are running into making your film?

Here are a few stills.

Why not just magnet link, like a true chad?



Oh fuck, Idk how to do that.


You're welcome. I hope you all like it.


Is this world premiere? Or maybe advance screening.

I don't know if you'd want to use a magnet because you would have less control over it



>less control

What does that even mean? You can download it straight off from youtube in 1080p quite easily and then share it on tpb/here/wherever. It depends only on that if he wants to share master or more transparent version than the YT one and let others to make it somewhat immortal. It will get there anyway.

I don't know if amazon/hulu even offer downloads and in what quality, but the industry standard is around 5000 Kbps when 1080p, and that's not enough even if encoded properly in hevc, and only god knows how they encode shit.

Anyway, I'm just downloading it. Would eventually buy physical copy if good, but shipping overseas is still very costly.




Advance screening, premiere will be at a festival.

Feel free to download, we'll have physical available but idgaf if you download it tbh. People will one way or another haha. I just hope people like it and maybe reach out to us about it.

I thought this might be a good idea so that we don't crowd the catalog and that threads of a higher quality can remain more accessible for longer. I'll start... and I apologize because I know how vague this is going to be. A couple months back (and I think it was on this board) I saw a recommendation for a French film that was made in the last five years. It's most obvious characteristic was the intense, unusual camerawork; holding on strange angles and shaking violently at times. I saw a scene and all I remember is that it took place in the woods, with two characters maybe? That's all I have...

What do people see in giallos? Aside from niggers that think aesthetics are just visual/sound gimmicks? I've seen few, most recently Deep Red and those films are too silly; it reminds me of american obssession with b(and less)-movies or, how do they proudly refer to them, cult movies.



I got interested in them because I liked rare soundtracks before seeing any of the movies



Because Suspiria got a recent remake so people are starting to get interested in those. I'm italian, I think they are bullshit and I had the exact same thought even before this mania started

>it reminds me of american obssession with b(and less)-movies or, how do they proudly refer to them, cult movies.

It's exactly what it is about. Giallo is in italy is a type of literature (what is called pulp everywhere else) and giallo movies are basically our equivalent of what americans call grindhouse.

Same exact shit. Italian cinema got ruined by this americanization of movies too.

Btw the B or lesser movie obsession I think it's just a bastardization (muttification if you like) of what Chaiers du cinema, who first "discovered" the value of B movies who were more free to experiment and more "auteurial", said. Americans only weren't able to understand that within the context of classical hollywood it made sense, after it didn't and then Tarantino said it was cool to like them so now here we are.

I enjoy watching these cheesy grindhouse/B movies or less too. With a bit of self irony and a bit of admiration for having put out a movie with little money and little time and still be able to deliver and even try some more out there approach. If I have to watch something entertaining and interesting (for the gimmicks) they deliver and they don't take themself seriously. Still we never had a Seijun Suzuki in Italy so you are really not losing out anything.

Not so much at all. He didn't like travelling and was making money, before and after war, dubbing films into spanish, if I'm not mistaken. Other than that he was some time sponsored by french family of aristocrats, Noilles, and after that sponsored by some american museum etc and constatly asked his mommy for money. I wouldn't call him vagrant, just good-for-nothing who met bunch of intelligent people at university, that held him above waters of shit for some time.

>he never made anything seriously

I think he was only afraid of being challenged, if it's true.

>But i do think he played politics, just in such a level only he, his friends and some dudes who were in the joke could understand.

not really

the whole surrealist movement coquetted with commies and earlier with anarchists, maybe they condisdered them tools, but his memories say otherwise, the movement as a whole sucked soviet dick until maybe 50s when sartre said it's all bullshit

for example there was russian ballet in paris? he didn't fuck one of them only because he, for some retarded reason, started to talk about politics and she was clearly anti-soviet

despite being surrealist, lacking the irrationial in everyday life and hoping for fundemantal thrill and change of life at least state-wide, despite his hoping for war, violence, revolution for revolution, the absolute nothingness, he didn't participate in the spanish civil war and was terrified by the horrendous killings by falangists and anarchy anarchists did

he once said he can't understand politics-fueled killings and was scared by them, but did understand and wasn't scared of people just killing people for joy, for nothing and said it's the absolute surrealistic act; you decide

>due to his machinations

He was spy? and propagandist for the republic when in paris 35-39 if I'm not mistaken and was banned for Las Hurdes, that was his only political film sponsored by anarchist Acin who won a lottery. He was banned only under Franco, Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

>But, what is leftism anyway?

Generally the agreement of eventually reaching a society lacking hierarchy, or the process of removing one hierarchy. Even those who no longer believe in reaching said society follow systems made to create said society.


>Michael Moore.

If someone here actually made this list I highly recommend to the mods that they try getting their ip and leaking it so we can hunt them down. On the topic though liberals are generally not leftist in the same group that those above are as they do not want removal of a or/and all hierarchies, only to preserve it and fix certain problems within the hierarchy.

I don't see these posted, from 4channel. "Essential /film/core" which was probably only posted on /tv/ and "Exit Level Arthouse" with entry-level stuff like Blowup and Le bonheur. It's better to avoid lofty sounding chart titles when the choices are so random. I wonder if the same person made multiple charts with The Steel Helmet? I think I've seen it about 3 different times.

Petty griping aside, there's some good stuff in these too.

I thought OHMSS was used as the main music for Goldeneye 64, but it's been a while since I played it

I've always liked the Louis Armstrong track from that movie too. I think it was the last music Armstrong recorded. It's probably my favorite song of any Bond movie. Again Barry does an excellent job with delicate orchestration.

I embedded John Barry's title music for Seance on Wet Afternoon. This was one of his first soundtracks, a creepy slow-burning English gem featuring a young-ish Richard Attenborough. Well worth watching.

What is your opinion on sentimental films or sentimentalism narratives in general?

Has a film ever ever made you cry out of pure sentimentality.


File: 1430114345451.jpg (117.42 KB, 705x539, 705:539, valley.jpg)

I'm open to sentimentality and try not to be too cynical or stoic. As far as effectiveness, I guess it all depends how it's presented. No one wants to be cheaply manipulated. My pet peeve in this regard is overscoring.

John Ford includes sentimentality quite often. It usually seems to work. I think How Green Was My Valley had the greatest impact on me.

There might be another layer to older movies, independent of narrative – a feeling of sentimentality for the time in which they were made.

>Honestly, I miss movies from this time as they were escapism and not so political.

Yes it's disappointing that there is suddenly an intense focus on the political views of everything everywhere. A movie is good if it presents the proper worldview. It reminds me of what I've heard about USSR... art must be propaganda. Sometimes Soviet films were banned because they didn't praise Stalin enough.
