Excluding new releases, which films do you want to watch but cannot find?

I'm intrigued by Once, an allegorical dialogue-free feature that premiered at Cannes in 1974. The film could be fascinating or boring as hell, but the soundtrack of lo-fi ambient electronics would make it worthwhile to find out.


It's reasonable to assume the film still exists somewhere. Hopefully it becomes publicly available eventually.

Fair enough point.



<Personal issues and emotions don't translate well into art

isn't the main attraction of art that skilled artists can translate any any psyxic thing into a communicible form?

nothing must be understood, but your experience of an art product is often going to be better if you understand the art product. though you're right about the 'understanding' card: if you say "you just don't understand the art product, if you understood the art product, you would understand this", you are not really helping anyone understand anything; and there is a sort of person who will leave arguments like that with a feeling of discouragement as though he cannot understand art, which tends to cause him to stop making attempts to understand art.



please, instead of telling us that we need to do X to understand it, help us understand it. tell us about it. give a description of it's essential qualities that make it what it is. and don't just say 'ineffability of art', art is not ineffable, maybe some particular art products are, but then you must give a good reason for us to believe that that art product is ineffable.


<since he isn't European he doesn't get a pass to be artsy

that's false reasoning, though the conclusion is true: nobody gets a pass to anything based on the parts of their identity which they cannot control. if being european and making art is sufficient for that art to be considered good, then why is my art not considered good? i'm european, i make bad art. despicable. or maybe my art is just misunderstood and ineffable



^this nigga goin wild

First things, first; I didn't even said that "art is ineffable" trash you came with (which is funny you enter the debate showing yourself that way). On the other hand, you're misunderstanding making an axioma to defend your personal thoughts for not being capable to understand art with the inherent condition of an art being expressed by feelings which is where I was focusing the argument in the first place. You want to go wild and jump out the window, it's ok for me.

>That said.

I think I was very clear pointing a direction to "understand" what emotional films like the one Gallo did, anyways, I'll give you both more hints since you asked.

Add to your wishlist films directed by sensible directors like Ozu, Ford, Bresson or Gotard (among others); people who understood the importance of gestures and so did Gallo (trough his egomaniac ways) in both of his movies.

Aside of that, you can see in BB a lot of improvisation, a thing which is completely forgotten these days, just watch Cassavettes's Faces you'll understand it quickly.

Btw, cut both of you the "product" thing since we're talking of art manifestations not industry little toys. You're welcome.

The Prussian Cur (1918)

WWI anti-German propaganda directed by Raoul Walsh. This poster is rather interesting as we see Uncle Sam about to intervene with Lady Liberty and "DEMOCRACY" behind him. The first of many such interventions!

<The film's director, Raoul Walsh, called it his "rottenest picture ever" for its anti-German sentiment, while its star Miriam Cooper (Walsh's wife) called it the worst film in which she had ever appeared.

The film includes a depiction of a Canadian who was crucified by German soldiers. The shocking story was based on real accounts from the war, though difficult to verify it was effective war propaganda. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Crucified_Soldier

Let's have a thread specifically for longer content.

I don't watch television series since I'd prefer spend that time on, say, 10 completely different films. But I'm open to watching mini-series, a format situated between regular feature films and TV series. (It's just rare that I actually do it.)

Has /film/ seen any good mini-series (or old serials)? What long films have you seen, did you watch them in one day, and were they worth the time?

Nice music by Ilja Zeljenka. I'd like to find some of his OSTs, but I don't know if any of them were released. He was composer for >>7763 too.

I remember hearing that Zdenek Liska's widow would not give permission for soundtracks, because she said the films were the optimal (and thus only) way to experience his music. I guess that changed a bit with the release of Morgiana and a couple others. I'd like to hear more though...Liska was as prolific as Morricone IIRC.

Based on the trailer, this OKC documentary has the same type of theories we've heard about 9/11 -- a truck bomb could not have caused that type of damage so there must have been additional bombs in the building. To me this angle seems pointless.

More interesting is the Feds' tenuous connection to the perpetrators. As with 9/11 there were undercover operations in the orbit of the OKC bombing suspects.

Also interesting is the story of Kenneth Michael Trentadue


and his brother's search (in vain) for surveillance video of McVeigh parking the truck.

On ICM you get ranked for how many films you've watched on Official Lists.


There are 190 official lists, some for the obvious (IMDb Top 250) and others for more interesting exploration (Jonathan Rosenbaum's Essential Films). There are lists by decade, by country, by genre.

You win awards as you get closer to completing a list.

It's handy and kind of fun.




My reviews are shit though, don't judge based on those


I found another one of these sites. Has anyone used it?


It looks like they are trying to deliver good recommendations based on your ratings. I don't know if it works well for people who watch unknown films.

Lately I noticed More Like This on imdb pages sometimes has interesting recommendations.



From a data mining perspective, by definition you won't have as good recommendations for obscure films as you will for those with a significant training pool (ie mainstream 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.

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.

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.

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.
