It hurt but I have to respect the film makers audacity to earrape me at the literal start of the film, few would do that. In retrospect it was great.

What moments do you both hate and love in movies /film/?

Was it a bad rip or a "feature" of the movie?



My second guess was the rip. Nope. It's just really incompetent mixing.

>make a list of good space movies

<doesn't start making a list of good space movies

How's I agree with having Stanley Kubrik - 1968 - 2001: A Space Odyssey; George Lucas - 1980 - Empire Strikes Back gets off-list mention for being the least bad of the franchise, a decent story, and a light introduction into the genre. I would add Андрей Тарковский - 1972 - Соларис, and 今 敏 (script) - 1995 - MEMORIES - 彼女の想いで (Magnetic Rose). Contact (1997) is a not-bad story écranisate, excepting the funerary flashback and the zeal of the inquisition. It's less a space film and more an earth+ film, where the "+" is the slight expansion of the bounds of earth (the social construct: the human, et al, world as based on the physical construct). Were I to class Contact (1997), It would be of what one might call "science procedural": fictions of people, working scientists, doing science.



Yeah, /film/ is doing pretty well as far as quality is concerned.

Not that i think a bit of humour is a problem anyway, just saying.




>also, why don't we make a list of good space movies, instead of whining that someone tricked you into thinking contemporaneous disney makes good movies.

In another thread maybe? the OP already poisoned the well



I remember these old sci-fi threads, but they are not exclusively focused on space.





I suppose the only reasonable response was to stir up hubbub towards a legitimate list, leaving the starting of another thread for this as the only rejoinder.


Just watched MEMORIES. Good recommendation, but I gotta say, the rest of it was kinda sucky.

Александр Константинович Петров, each frame of each of his animations is oil-paint on glass. Excellence of the product aside, it is amazing that it takes only 6 months to produce the 20 minutes of reel. To achieve the 24frames/second minimum for decent fluid motion, there would be over 150 frames to be made each day. Some shortcuts are taken, and some are visible in the result. One shortcut is to paint a frame, photograph it, slightly rearrange the wet oil paint to be as the next frame, photohraph, repeat. This is visible when the oil paint slightly darkens or lightens. If it lightens, all that would be necessary is to add some darkening to it, making it trivial to correct the error of the paint lightening, and it's only twice as difficult to correct darkened paint. Ideally he should have corrected those, but the change is so slight that it hardly effects the overall form or substance, so it never detracts from the essence of the result. Nevertheless, he is excellent, because there is little that is even close to being as good.


I agree with the sentiment of the quote, that it often takes the audacity of one man doing things his way in order to change the world for the better. I'd like to think that I'm a member of the Homo Sapiens Audens, but I know that there is a limit to what any man can achieve, without the coöperation of a group willing to, for a probatory period, follow him.

Have any of you thought about some music being powerful enough to being an equivalent to film reaching the status of a quasi/pseudo-film. Even if not as vividly articulated music always paints pictures in the mind which can then be in turn related to the aesthetics of film. Music that can be best met with a match or easily painted pictures besides concept albums and initial prog rock is music with texture and sonic landscapes like kosmischeklang, early post-rock, and some post-punk/no-wave but I'd also like to hear the genres that paint a film in your head. I'm not saying the two mediums are interchangeable or trying to break the boundaries of art but it'd be nice to discuss and break up the monotony of the threads on the front pages.

Why should he think that? It's quite obvious that he doesn't know what OP meant to say if he made that post. Hell, even I don't understand the sentence he enclosed in brackets.

<inb4 thread is about the relation between film and music.

That's obvious, but if you think that it's not important to have your meaning exactly understood, nor to exactly understand others' meanings, then you are either antisocial (then, why are you here, why are you wasting your precious time writing to us, reading what we wrote? Hm?), or an idiot (the goal of communication is, well, communication, if people are not exactly understanding each other, they are not communicating well).

How about top 10 actresses from films before 1980? I got a thing for Swede blondes but I did include a few black haired beauties. It all started when I was talking with a friend about how much more brautiful women were casted to bring works to life and capture our hearts and really make them classics. But after googling some women I remember fondly I found them to be pretty rat faced and disgusting. Also bonus points are seeing them at 80-90 years old and how sometimes beauty never fades or how plastic surgery and drugs really affects the elite. Anyways heres mine in order.

File: f4a8c33c894f420⋯.jpg (875.9 KB, 2919x1958, 2919:1958, Oberon.jpg)

Born in India of mixed parentage, Merle Oberon had an exotic beauty that proved to be her stepping-stone to a successful film career. Her first important role was as Anne Boleyn in the Private Life of Henry VIII in 1933 which starred Charles Laughton; this led to leading roles in films such as The Scarlet Pimpernel, The Dark Angel (a performance that earned her an Oscar nomination), and in 1939 her iconic role as Cathy in Wuthering Heights opposite Laurence Olivier as Heathcliff.

Instrumental to Merle's early career was the famed director Alexander Korda (whom she later married). He had worked in Hollywood during the silent film era but relocated to Britain where he founded London Films in 1932. Recognizing Miss Oberon's potential and the quality of her performance in The Private Life of Henry VIII, Korda not only starred her in films he was involved in but also played a key role in helping her obtain her various roles in Samuel Goldwyn-produced films in Hollywood.

Merle was in London filming one of Korda's films, I, Claudius, when she sat for this mesmerizing portrait by Gerald Brockhurst in the painter's Chelsea studio in February 1937. The film's production was halted the following month ostensibly because Merle was injured in a car accident. However, the gossip of the time held that the real reason the film was scrapped stemmed from intense clashes between Korda and the leading man, Charles Laughton. Luckily, Merle recovered and went on enjoy a busy career until she retired in 1973. Truly, the film world's loss of I, Claudius was more than compensated for by the art world's gain of Merle's portrait by Brockhurst. It became, along with the painter's likenesses of the Duchess of Windsor and Marlene Dietrich, one of Brockhurst's three most famous celebrity portraits. Merle Oberon was exhibited in the 1937 Royal Academy's Summer Exhibition in London, as well as in the 1938 Royal Society of Portrait Painters' Exhibition (according to the label on the reverse of the painting). When Merle purchased her portrait in May 1937 for the substantial sum of £2,000, the news was reported far and wide.

Figured with those films listed in OP you would've liked it more, damn. I was the opposite, I loved it, was in a stupid giggly trance when I watched it. The fights were gorgeous. Could've used more Iko and thats about it. Can't wait to see "Parabellum" aka JW3.

Ah, Jai or the director giving a tribute to Van Damme? Sounds fun, obviously along with having the top stuntstars around, but i don't trust the director a lot after seeing The Sentinel, but that's without seeing Accident Man.


I meant the first one, haven't bothered with the second but i found the some still shots great.

I bet there's a couple of other great stuff around but i'm not as versed as i would like in this field, hope some others can throw you some more suggestions. If you want historical or essential data, >>14318 is an obligatory view, it possesses some of the most infamous executions, it's the main inspiration for one of the most famous hyperviolent products around and it has Yukari Oshima in it.



I liked Accident Man, but "Debt Collector" is the real good film of JVJ. It's not really what OP is looking for, but I recommend it.

I'm looking for movies with a certain aesthetic, see pics related. Basically an 80s photography feel with vibrant and sharp colors, lots of lights, neons, night-time, a certain dream-like quality. Wish I could express myself better but I'm bad at English, hopefully you understand what I'm looking for by looking at the images. Doesn't have to be necessarily an 80s movie (as you can see, I included some Eyes Wide Shut screencaps), just this type of aesthetic. I already seen most of Wong Kar Wai films which would be an easy suggestion. Throw at me everything that comes to your mind. Also discuss any aesthetics in film that you like/reminds you of the 80s (not only the type I requested), just for the sake of discussion

Someone posted the trailer for this last year (before it had come out). I watched it and ended up really liking it. It was unpredictable, bizarre, had interesting characters, and was obviously incredibly aesthetic. It reminded me a lot of Drive (which I wasn't a fan of) so I'd expect anyone that loved Drive to love this even more.

These should just be renamed to modern day in metropolis films, I live in Jew York and this is pretty much already reality, all we're missing is replacing more buildings with cheap ironically capitalist brutalist architecture, and putting more lights outside brick buildings and you pretty much have the exact same thing as cyberpunk.


Kind of funny, "modern day in metropolis", they used Shanghai for future Los Angeles in "Her". Makes me think.

Not to mess with the nest but the chinese started the massacres with the Zhao kingdom genocide, the main precursor/ancestor to the mongolian steppe nomads which became nomads in small-ish part due to the persecution and the literal worship these areas have for their ancestors led to bad blood for centuries, boiling the pot for mass-scale butt revenge that spawned an empire.

Also the classical Aztecs were already overthrown when the spaniards came, you are thinking of the Mexicas, which were the chimp-tier lower strata of society (including tons of small foot soldiers and non-nobility elite warriors) that forcibly expelled the older rule, hence why Cortez got overwhelming support by loyalists when he managed to explain his route of action. Aztecs were butchers but they were more about making taxed-to-hell satellite states with an aligned leader on helm, also never attacked the Northern tribes even when they knew about their trade routes and exotic goods.

You are not all that wrong, just wanted to point small details, even when your examples were asking for it. Although half of the injuns in the Mississippi area and Southwest were pacific (plus an entire age behind to be a continental rival) and had no business being executed by power-drunk brits, see the Crow tribe for example, always helped the colony rule and were vanished for being red in the Manifest Destiny days. These are cromwellian anglos we are talking about

While it is true Europeans have spilled some beans along the way, i have no doubt somebody else would've done the same if they were in a similar situation some other day, it just happened to be some moors searching for their redemption by their perceived homeland and later a couple of brits led by someone who might or might not have been a brit. Vikings didn't bother with some Athapascan/Inuit archers, Macedonians didn't want none with black jungle demons, supposedly the chinese didn't either with a bunch of Cahitan.




What's a succesful society for you then?

>That we are entirely superior.

It aint bullshit if there's a wealth of evidence supporting it.



Succesful society, at least to me, means minimal state where you can apply philosophies on your life, where 98% of population isn't walking trash, where what you buy you own, what you made you own, where others don't ostracize/persecute you for the sake of intellectual homogenity, where society doesn't greatly suffer from overpopulation and state isn't trying to brainwash you and poison you, but yeah, I guess we all have different priorieties.

Just that we exist as ruling race doesn't mean we have succesful societies.


We were on whole different level. I already said that. I have no problem with romans wiping out carthago. And I resent that I kind of implied that every conquest is bad.

>Mongolians raped and slaughtered the Chinese to a point where the Chinese of today are more like the invaders.

Except they literally defeated mongols culturally.



Then there has never been a successful society, by those utopian standards



Ancient greece polis' doesn't seem that much far from it, except sparta of course.

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.

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.



Did you film most of Spriggan in chronological order? A friend and I got that impression while watching it yesterday because the camerawork gets much better as the film goes along. Seeing two years of growth in slightly over an hour was a neat experience as Spriggan went from a couple friends fucking around in the woods to something bordering on a good film.

It looks like you guys had a lot of fun and I hope you make more films in the future. With a little more practice and better audio, you guys could make some good shit. Also, please store your armor properly. The knight's helmet gets rustier every scene.

Middlebrow taste and analysis with a touch of annoying hyperbole. Fairly well made.

I've only recently gotten into the silent era. Over time I found myself watching older and older films. Now I'm close to the beginning. Is anyone else interested in silents?

This video piqued my curiosity quite a bit: http://youtu.be/yS37kyfnGy4?t=2m15s

New Laurel and Hardy movie


Faust is really nice, the dark look really adds an eerie look to the movie.



I really love the way Limite was shot. Dynamic, inventive, playful. The closeup textures of wood, water, clothes, hair are beautiful on nitrate. I'm surprised this film hasn't been imitated more, but please tell me films that were inspired by it. I haven't seen many from Brazil.

Jean Epstein is the first silent director I noticed that takes special care to properly light characters' eyes. It is a small detail but it adds a lot of vitality to the images. Sometimes the images almost pass for modern photography.


Saw The Racket (1928). Apparently it was almost a lost film until a reel was found in Howard Hughes's collection. Cool shots with the gun under the table and everyone at a funeral packing heat in their hats. Especially loved how they showed the main character walk up to the mob boss then moved the camera as he was walking, seemed impressive given the era.

Why does this board hate Gotard so much?

I don't like the guy myself beside some brief strokes of interesting formal and stylistic choices, but I'm interested in your opinion because I don't feel like I'm able to put it into words.

His movies strike as more interesting to explain than to watch and are all more commentaries on film (hypocritical, dishonest and short handed at that) than actual film. There is 0 beside some formal choices (at best) or some gimmicks (at worst). Also the guy was a fucking cunt eveyone hated him.

Yet while I understand why he was loved and so trendy in the 60-70 (now he's just irrelevant altrough I much prefer late video Gotard than early)I don't understand why he's still loved now.


If someone made a case for him, I would be open-minded. I stopped watching his stuff because it didn't excite me at all and I felt I was wasting time trying to find something I liked. He seems bland compared to most of the other well-known directors in 1960s Paris. In spite of that, he is (or was) put forward as the mascot of the French New Wave.

I read summaries of his recent projects, or random stuff he made in the 80s, and my reaction is usually "Meh." I don't even care. I remember the trailer for his last film as 90 seconds of words flashing across the screen. That's not closing the deal with me.

>not the greatest writing in the world

totally agree

I know why I don't read americans. I was sceptic a lot after discovering he's actually Vogelbaum and New Yorker, but didn't expect it to be sometimes more painful than cringey/funny. Anyway it's interesting to see that in '74 he seemed more than optimistic about collapse of capitalistic regimes

>a significant exploration of films outside the mainstream

it still is

I still can't find any reason whatsoever how could film devolve into video and further into shit.

This thread reminded me of the Viennese Actionists. Their performance art is rather distasteful and I could only stand to watch for a few minutes when I first heard of them. My memory is that naked people were flopping around slapping chicken meat on themselves.

Maybe I'd feel differently about watching this garbage now, who knows.

I remembered the name Otto Muhl, so I decided to read about the man. Wikipedia says, "Otto Muehl (16 June 1925 – 26 May 2013) was an Austrian sex offender and artist, who was known as one of the co-founders as well as a main participant of Viennese Actionism and for founding the Friedrichshof Commune." Sounds like a class act.

Looking into it more, it's an interesting movement despite some of the disgusting aspects. The Kurt Kren shorts on Index 01 gives the performances added impact via rapid editing. Selbstverstümmelung is particularly effective.

The commune is another topic altogether. A Marxist sex cult. Throw out the natural order and replace it with whimsical new rules.


>In 1970 Otto Mühl founded a commune in Vienna. The experiment was an offshoot of the ‘Aktionismus’, a Viennese version of the happenings in New York, lead by meanwhile legendary artists such as Nitsch, Schwarzkogler, and Brus. The happenings – in German ‘Aktionen’ – were an effort to lift all kinds of taboo in art. Many an artist proceeded to complement the revolution in art with a revolution in life itself. Life as the ultimate work of art, so to speak.

>The ideal of life-long fidelity was replaced by the ideal of absolute promiscuity. It was forbidden to make love with the same partner more than once a week. And also the frequency had to be reconsidered accordingly. With ‘bourgeois couples’ the frequency of copulation, grown to daily drudge, dropped to an alarming 2,57 times a week, at least according to the then widely known statistics of Kinsey. In Friedrichshof one was supposed to make love as often as a Muslim bows to Mecca. Whoever would like quality to prevail over quantity was reminded of the fact that ‘sex’ had to be unlinked from mere bourgeois ‘love’: foreplay and similar ‘romantic nonsense’ were unacceptable. Ideally, the job had to be done in a few minutes. To protect the communards from the dangers of bourgeois inertia, a rather efficient measure was introduced: men were not allowed their own bed. So they had to look for a shelter every night. Thus, even a slowly moving wheel had to turn at least one round a day.


Maybe try Climax by Gaspar Noe, or irreversible.

Bumping this garbage thread to rehabilitate it.

I'm on an Orson Welles kick after seeing his newly released film, which was a nice surprise. It was better than I expected it to be.


I also watched this great documentary The One-Man Band that explores all of Orson's unfinished personal projects. There are a lot of these unfinished projects -- Merchant of Venice, Don Quixote, The Deep, The Dreamers, and The Other Side of the Wind until recently. Unfortunately due to bad circumstances and perhaps a tragic character flaw Orson Welles always had trouble getting his films across the finish line.

Anyway, the reason he made these ridiculous commercials in his later years was to fund his independent filmmaking. Despite all his setbacks he never stopped filming.

It's a sad story in some ways, as you see his vision unrealized again and again. But it's still very interesting to see how his talent and creative drive were firmly at the forefront of his daily life.

I noticed a lot of new Orson Welles documentaries came out in 2018, likely to coincide with The Other Side of the Wind.

Ryan Suffern - A Final Cut for Orson

Mark Cousins - The Eyes of Orson Welles

Morgan Neville - They'll Love Me When I'm Dead

Here's nice video where Morgan Neville discusses his affection for F for Fake. I never knew the backstory on F for Fake... a lot of the footage was shot by someone else!
