Jack and Jill (2011). Though most of the film was dull, it contained a very notable scene featuring Al Pacino. I dare say it's one of the greatest moments in cinematic history. Dugan's camerawork is exquisite and Pacino's raw impassioned performance carries it to increasingly lofty heights. The lyricism is perfectly measured, each rhyming couplet dancing across the ears of the viewer. The relationship between "latte lights" and a town that is "outta sight" is so provocative that it merits whole essays worth of critical analysis. When Dunk asks us "What's my name?", he asks us not just what his name is but what our name is. In three words, our whole conception of what we know is destroyed, replaced by a void that can only be "named". Such meaningful interrogation of the human condition explored with emotional bombast is seldom seen outside of the theatre and indeed this audio-visual delight reminds one of Wagner's Tristan und Isolde,an opera only narrowly surpassed in terms of artistic merit by Dunkaccino. When future historians come to assemble a reformed Western canon, Dunkaccino will surely take pride of place as the single greatest achievement of the Western world.

The Ridiculous 6 was such a touching and enlightening portrayal of what it was like to be a Jew in America during the 1800's. I'd go so far as to say that it rivals Schindler's List in not only its artistic merit, but also its historical and cultural impact. The fact that it wasn't even nominated for any award just goes to show that Hollywood, far from being run by Jews, is antisemitic. The few Jews in Hollywood who are open about their heritage are attacked by open Antisemites, which I think can best be noticed with the attacks on many Jewish individual in Hollywood. The most famous among these victimized individuals is Harvey Weinstein. Despite his dedication to the movie industry (including co-founding Miramax) he was falsely accused of sexually soliciting many women. In this film, Adam Sandler has displayed the inherent bias of not only America, but the world when it comes to the sensitive issue of Jewish historical, and current persecution.

LA adaptación, cuando es leve, loose, puede desembocar en una historia original. Por ejemplo, intentando adaptar un libro en el cual el narrador enuncia explicitamente que el es el creador de los personajes. ¿Cómo traduzco eso a una película?. El intento de traducir la manera en que se da la información en una novela o cuento puede hacerte ver mecanismos formales del lenguaje audiovisual que s epueden usar para contar cosas que no necesariamente tengan que ver con la historia del cuento o novela. Te hacen descubrir maneras, dispositivos, interfaces.

Pensar como se presentan los personajes, que porcentaje de la pelicula se dedica a cada cosa, etc. Por ejemplo, la mitad de la novela que estoy intentando adaptar presenta a los personajes de la siguiente manera: 40% del libro sobre un personaje, 40% sobre el otro (nunca en paralelo, aparecen sucesivos) y el otro 20 es el final en el que se encuentran dentro de la historia. Puedo pensar esa manera de relacionar y presentar personajes porque esa novela me los sugirió. Y no necesariamente usar el contenido de esa novela.

I have ideas, but sometimes I have trouble transferring my ideas into clear, crisp writing. So in trying to boost my written communication skills, I found this nice list of tips.

https://lithub.com/how-to-be-a-writer-10-tips-from-rebecca-solnit/

I think some of her advice for literature could be transferred to film as well...

. Literature is not high school and it’s not actually necessary to know what everyone around you is wearing, in terms of style, and being influenced by people who are being published in this very moment is going to make you look just like them, which is probably not a good long-term goal for being yourself or making a meaningful contribution. At any point in history there is a great tide of writers of similar tone, they wash in, they wash out, the strange starfish stay behind, and the conches. Check out the bestseller list for April 1935 or August 1978 if you don’t believe me.

Caldini makes some of the best music I've heard from a director! I need to find his albums. Definitely a Board of Canada style.

Who other directors make interesting music, Jodorowsky? David Lynch? I think John Carpenter composes like a child.

Btw do you consider the blu-ray release of Solyaris, the very cold blue-tinted one that changed the very core of the film and killed any detail in it, superior to the original?

Depends on what type of sci-fi we're talking about. Are you doing soft sci-fi or hard sci-fi? What genre of sci-fi is it: space opera, cyberpunk, post-apocalyptic, steampunk (God forbid), time travel, or any other such type? These variables will influence the factors of what makes good sci-fi.

I will argue that, at minimum, a sci-fi movie has to have all the qualities that make good movies in general, plus concepts that are rooted in at least some basis of scientific fact, theory, or hypothesis, and, if we're dealing with soft sci-fi, relevant, non-preachy social commentary.

Hey /film/. I'm really liking this board, so I'll do my part to help keep it alive. Does anyone know of any films similar to The Parallel Street (1961)? I'm thinking of sort of globe-trotting fiction/documentary hybrids with experimental structures and stuff like that. The only one I can really think of is Sans Soleil, so if anyone knows of anything similar to either of these, it would be much appreciated

Ouroboros is classified by some people as a documentary. I'd push back on that. Calling it a "fiction/documentary hybrid" is better, but still not a perfect description. The director has a visual arts background and this film is more conceptual than genre-based.

You probably won't fully understand this film unless you read an interview with the director.

The latter really struck me hard, since here in Argentina we had a similar experiencie with a Militar dictatorship taking """political prisoners""" and basically torturing them and then killing them, but selling the image that they were "missing", which is very psychotic, even worse than plain killing and telling the famillies what happened.

I need some help deciding which of Tarkovsky's films to watch next.
I loved Offret, even though it took a few watches to really become immersed with the experience, and I've tried watching Solaris and Stalker a few times but they both have a weird feel to them that I can't exactly explain, and I had to stop watching because I couldn't become invested in what I was seeing.
What of Tarkovsky's films besides Offret will most help me get a better feel for his direction and stuff, so I can later dive into his more alienating films more comfortably?

It certainly adds a bit more context, even if the alien visitation angle is less pronounced in the film. I think what makes it difficult to engage with sometimes is that a lot of the characters come off as unsympathetic. That goes for Solaris as well in my opinion.

“Stalker” basically guides you by the hand all the way. It even has “that's what it all is about” scene for slowpokes, after which all discussion of aliens and connection with book's plot becomes irrelevant.

What didn't you get?

Keep in mind that it's a very personal film to Tarkovsky. It reflected a lot of what he was going through personally before he filmed it. If you read his diary, you'll find during this point in time, he was always thinking about his wife, child and home. Hence the black and white dream scenes of Andrei's (the character) wife and family.

Yea… I read the reviews and hows that was his first film away from Russia.

But, its the movie itself which I still have some troubles with, Why the dude setted himself on fire? is the candle thing just an allegory to the struggle and meaningless of life? why people made fun of the old dude when trying to use the candle? what happened to the redheaded woman?

Im planning on watching this movie some time in the future again.

Domenico set himself on fire to be a martyr of sorts. To show how strong his faith was and in what he was preaching to humanity. Sacrificing himself in hopes that they'll see his undying conviction and to consider what he's told them.

I think the candle bit was Andrei (who said earlier that he understood Domenico) trying to show that he too could make a sacrifice (however small it was in scale) and putting faith in Domenico and his beliefs. Perhaps him going through with this one final test of patience and will had some great meaning or purpose to Andrei? I haven't figured this all out myself, tbh.

In the hot springs bit near the beginning they talk about Domenico, his faith and how a madman is very similar if not identical to a spiritual man. The ones in the hot springs are basically your average secular people. With no spirituality or faith in their lives, they believe only what they see and experience and act as if they're "realists". So when they see a man so devoted to his faith, they'll think he's unusual because he's not like them. So he's cast aside and labeled as a madman for his unusual beliefs and actions because they fail or maybe even refuse to see the world through his eyes.

Eugenia got fed up with Andrei's indifference towards her feelings. She wanted to be loved by him. He goes through the whole film not recognizing it or, maybe he does but will never do anything because his love for his wife and family is too great. I think it's the latter considering, Eugenia shows up in at least one of the dream scenes with Andrei's wife, I guess to make the point that Andrei perhaps sees them as similar if not the same person in this sort of confused and depressed state he's been in.

But anyways, she moves on and goes back to her boyfriend (who she brought up earlier in an attempt to make Andrei jealous but he didn't give a shit anyways) and it's obvious she's not happy with this boyfriend. He seemingly doesn't give a shit about her too.

Your write up is on point. There's also some foreshadowing(?) about both Domenico and Andrei's fate. Early on in the film they talk about the maid who worked very far from home and burned down her Boss's house just so she could go home. There's also a lot of ideas expressed about the men sharing a fate or soul of sorts. The mirror scene, 1+1=1 and all that eastern philosophy stuff. As you said his diary shows the inspiration for Andrei's character. He even talks about the Russian mist we see in the film. I really love this film, his personal ones are the best.

You should watch tarkovski's films chronologically. There's a lot of recurrent themes in his films, that you will only get once you understand tarkovski himself.

For starters you should always pay attention to the following things: Kids and Infancy; Horses; Religion; The fact of flying; the paternal figure. Those are the ones that i can remember now.

By which I mean that you guys are disrespectful and ignorant to this art as much as the next redditor.

Both of you treat Film as a consumer identity as a football hooligan by choosing a "tribe" and avoiding intellectual discussion, constructive criticism or simple confrontation in favour of primitive and destructive bashing of each others favorite brands.

Both of you are more interested in quantity and respecting over emotionally understanding and absorbing the craft of this art.

Both of you are highly illiterate and pander to the lowest common understanding and effect of this art this being "empathy".

Both of you are anti film and victims of the current methods of distribution that make film something trivial and inferior to television, advertising and videoclip.

Both of you can name more films than any of the great Auteurs in history yet you will never be on the same level of even the lowest of the mass produced confectioners because you treat this art as a flag and as a choice instead of being organically part of your being. This not only is valid for cinema but for everything else and sadly not just on the internet but this malaise of yours is leaking in real life (or maybe viceversa).

Pasolini once said that "what authoritarianism was unable to do with his solemn retoric television did with the opposite". Since television and film do have deep down a blood relation and in a ceratain sense use the same language it's your fault if the world it's in shit.

Instead of being the only sense of reason and the only art form who can still make a difference you guys as the rest of the "cinephile" choose balkanization and hooliganism.

How about you show us how it's done instead of whining about it? If you want to discuss a film make a thread about the film.

This smells funky, seems you are cooking a socio-political statement (or only teasing one) as an ideology for a general art form

It's weird and there's a couple of interesting scenes but at the end of the movie I thought it was a waste of time.

My first impression was that it was a garbage art film but I still saw relatability and subtlety in the acting that a lot of people overlook. At the end of the movie you can see Tummler's lip quiver into a smile a little when he's realized what his life has become, and supplementarily the entire cast except Chloe Sevigny and Linda Manz were locals they hired so maybe he was reflecting on his actual life as well. I haven't seen any other movie that accurately portrays the hedonistic exuberance of going full retard with your friends with then the chair scene as you're then drenched in a loud silence at the realization you're a pigbrained retard who spent his energy and youth wasting away your days goofing off and on top of this that scene became documentary territory as the actors forget they're on camera letting their true selves fully show.
