andrei Tarkovsky has to be the most pretentious and overrated director in history his films are so boring especially mirror the most boring film i 've seen anyone who claims to like him is a hack



You sound really butthurt, bro.

Aside of that, yes he was average.

Why don't you like Kubrick? He's the most common director to wean people off of heavily-marketed mainstream Hollywood. Did you watch someone else instead?

As I remember part of The Devils was cut, maybe it was too extreme or whatever. Supposedly Warner Bros has the missing footage but they have not released it.

As for Iosseliani I have not seen anything else from him. He looks like an interesting director worth exploring. Thanks for recommending Giorgobistve. I also planned to see Once Upon a Time There Was a Singing Blackbird.

Az ember tragédiája (The Tragedy of Man)

Imre Madách’s popular nineteenth century play was adapted into an animated feature film by Hungarian director Marcell Jankovics back in 2011. In many ways, the themes of the play are like the Hungarian iteration of Milton’s Paradise Lost, Dante’s Divine Comedy, or a twist on Goethe’s Faust. The animated film adaptation initially went into production around 1988 and was expected to be completed in about six years, but due to some political turmoil and the fall of communism in Hungary, Jankovics could no longer rely upon the state-funded system to produce his movies. The film version closely follows the structure of the play, and the movie was slowly completed one act at a time (a total of fifteen acts over the course of twenty-three years). The story opens with God and the creation of the universe from the book of Genesis. Lucifer is present and berates God since Lucifer sees humanity as though they were created imperfectly, and because humans were created imperfectly with free will they will only try to become like God. Lucifer visits Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden to tempt them with sin.

From there on is what primarily consists of the narrative meat of the play. Once Adam and Eve lose favor with God and are cast away from of the Garden of Eden, Adam turns his back on God out of sheer pride. Adam becomes determined to strive on his own strength to pursue personal glory. Lucifer takes Adam under his wing and proceeds to show Adam and Eve their future, as well as humanity’s future in a search for the meaning of life. Lucifer guides Adam through numerous periods of human history, including ancient Egypt, the age of Greek democracy, hedonistic Rome, the medieval Byzantine Empire, the age of enlightenment, the early stages of the French Revolution, and the Industrial Revolution in nineteenth century London. Industrial London is one of the last stages in the play before jumping over one hundred and fifty years into the future, but in the film version, Jankovics takes the time to offer Adam and Eve a brief glimpse at twentieth century horrors, such as the world wars. The narrative of Madách’s Az ember tragédiája clearly borrows from Hegelian philosophy and dialectic. For example, Adam wishes to see the rise of human achievement and glory, so Lucifer takes Adam to ancient Egypt, where they come across the Post too long. Click here to view the full text.



Adam becomes disappointed in man’s inhumanity to man; a timeless narrative to comprehensively include world history and themes of social conflicts, anarchism, prejudice, utopianism, disposition, and deprivation. This tale of Lucifer’s fight for the soul of man may seem needlessly bleak, preachy, and too cyclical for some. At the very least, Jankovics’ arthouse animation ambition is commendable and he puts his art degree to good use. Each segment of Jankovics’ Az ember tragédiája is carefully animated to reflect different periods that fit the era on screen. For example, when Lucifer takes Adam to ancient Egypt, the film shifts its art style to showcase the art style and paintings of the ancient Egyptian time period, including techniques such as hierarchical proportion. The art on display during the film’s depiction of Greek democracy resembles something that one would see on ancient Greek amphorae and pottery, like the black or red figure technique. Once the film is flung into the far future and depicts a cold technocratic utopia, the style shifts to comic pop art. For a movie that spent over two decades in production, it seems easy to think that it would try to implement modern animation techniques from the twenty-first century, but Jankovics is smart enough to shy away from newness. Compare the dizzying kinetic energy of Spielberg’s The Adventures of Tintin, an animated film which released the same year as Jankovics’ Az ember tragédiája. Spielberg’s Tintin is quick and without rest. It’s a great movie that prioritizes movement in a way to stimulate viewer awareness through motion capture (see how The Adventures of Tintin shifts focus from the way it incorporates different points of view, from looking through lenses and magnifying glasses). Jankovics’ Az ember tragédiája wouldn’t have the same effect if it were to include motion capture techniques. Az ember tragédiája is a slow and deeply philosophical film with plodding Biblical language. The art on display pays a deep homage to art history. The low budget of the movie is reflective of Jankovics’ personal art-conciousness, and his Az ember tragédiája has the potential to be remembered as an animated cult classic.

Chantal Akerman has passed away. I've only seen News from Home and Hotel Monterey but I appreciated her unique style, even if it required patience.



What's interesting about her personality is how she rejected the title of feminist film maker even though everyone wanted to put her in that box. Most obits you'll read today are quick to include that label in their descriptions of her. I remember hearing that she did not like doing "women's film festivals" and preferred regular festivals instead.

What's wrong with his assertion? While the use of certain phrases does seem unorthodox he did bring a valid point: How much can someone fling gender criticism on a field where experimentation is the objective and lack of mainstream attention, or even established "art house" publishing, is rare?

Maybe some people can when we add the suspicious factors that take play in the auctioning and promotion of said art, but that usually just falls under good old nepotism heavily mixed with money laundering schemes.

And to make this somewhat on topic, i know this is not the board to place this but had to post that Dick fucking Dale died in the 16th of March. While perhaps not the absolute creator, he definitely was The Man in the Surf Rock guitar field, the most notable part of the genre and certainly one of the last icons of the Americana and Jukebox imagery.

As much of a guitar revolutionary as Hendrix, dude was also half-slav, half-classic arab. Interesting but somewhat obvious when we hear his musical influence.

/pol/ is a little unhinged these days, talking themselves into mass murder, but I'm curious which part of that post you disagree with? Your zero effort reply gave no details.

I don't think Carolee Schneemann's work was unjustly lacking acclaim. She was well-regarded in film and art circles. It's possible some crappy artists surpassed her, but better artists also had less acclaim than her.

How much more successful should she have been?

ID politics is a way to get noticed. I was merely wondering if she used it to her advantage. In the last five years there's been plenty of cynical "woke" posturing for career advancement.

Good stuff.



>Is there anything in the book that sticks out at you?

Well the whole idea is about "cutting on the blink". Murch talks about how blinking either accompanies a human switching to a new thought, or is even more directly part of how we switch to a new thought by "cutting" or creating a discontinuity between one moment and the next. He likes to cut a moment or two after a blink, and other things like that.

The rest of the book is a really dated analysis of digital editing that is only really interesting now as a curiosity.

Yeah that was my point.



It does a good job at portraying the emptiness and alienation of modern age, with the camera flying over peoples' heads, showing all the filth that happens in private, but generally I agree, this movie is too long to watch while sober.


File: 8519b17fbfa40d0⋯.png (3.1 MB, 1920x808, 240:101, climax.png)

Climax might have been based on a real story of a party where the punch was spiked. But I doubt there was so much chaos in any real world events.

This movie is a depiction of societal breakdown. In the first half the precise choreography would have you believe that everyone is in perfect harmony. But a mild disturbance tears apart the social fabric, leading to mob behavior and tribalism. Maybe this breakdown mirrors what's been happening in France -- there's a huge French flag looming in the room where most of the action takes place.

I noticed the typical Gaspar Noe protagonist is David. His short hair and cocky attitude resembled the lead actors of previous Noe films. In the second half David is completely impotent - beat up, called a Nazi by the black dancers, he loses his girlfriend to a lesbian, and a gay man tries to seduce him.

Now how many trannies were presented as female characters? I would say at least two - Gazelle and Emmanuelle. That shit creeps me out.

Letting aside some mainstream shit, this is the best thread of the board.

Here we go! Submit your favorite /film/s for the 8chan Top 250. We'll use this thread to discuss films that should and should not be included. Generally we want the list to reflect the nature of this board, so let's try to avoid mainstream titles. If you liked a recommendation from an old thread, or if you have a new suggestion to add to the list, now is the time to speak up.

Would like to see Masumiyet (1997) on the list. Demirkubuz is probably the best filmmaker to come out from Turkey and that 7 min long monologue from Haluk Bilginer is just remarkable.



>Read what he wrote on the trilogy of life before starting filming salò.

I'll do, it's true I haven't read anything from him.

>You mean they should have known better?

I'll comment on that after rewatching.

>This is debatable if not too simplistic imho.

With the advent of televisions and mass advertisation/propaganda started visualism, the pop-culture*. This meant that the world was not going to let you imagine as they wanted you to brainlessly consume sex, sexuality and everything they wanted [and it soon projected into literature and everything else]. Exempli gratia not a thing of woman body was left to imagination, not a thing was left to imagination as it was shown. The trend hit general public and now here we are. I'm more sexually stimulated by, say, muslim women because I can imagine how she is, how's her body etc. And all that started as reaction against aristocratic elitism, against imagination, against intelligence, against human, not bourgeoisie shamefuly.

*Hence why 60s commies were obssessed with newspapers and television.

>No one gave a fuck in italy about evola after the war.

While it's true, does it make him any less greatest mind?

>homoeroticism in Uccellacci and Ucellini

That one was his last tolerable. Although there was a scene on the end of the film, where some people couldn't start a car? and there was a woman among those three? people that was about to give birth. That was homoerotic. I'll have to watch it again. Seen it something like 3 years ago.

>Sei Italiano?


>This is a new one, for all it's flaws the PCI was a communist party in 1950 when pasolini got kicked out.

They were too sucking Stalins dick, they were too sucking social realism and brutalist architecture, the ultimate anti-art, they didn't see how much in wrong they were for not advocating their own stances at the very least; you see, I'm more anarcho-commuPost too long.

>Also I want to nominate L'Ami de mon amie

quoted for visibility



just an addendum to visualism as I'm about to rewatch his, hmm, ancient duology; one abolishes individuality for the sake of sign.

Je t'aime, je t'aime (1968)

Science fiction is used in this film as a framework for Alain Resnais to explore familiar themes of memory, time, love, loss, death. Claude Ridder is selected for a secret government experiment focused on time travel. He will travel back one year, stay there for one minute, and return to the present. But the experiment does not work as expected. Instead of returning to the present, Ridder hops to another time in his past, and then another. He re-lives a random sequence of abrupt moments from work, from vacation, and from his romantic relationships.

The events of Ridder's life come to him just like memories come to each of us, fragmented and often unexpected. As a viewer you piece together the story arc of Ridder's life from these discrete, disjointed moments. The story gets more interesting as macabre aspects of Ridder's past emerge.

Resnais's background as an editor was likely a major factor in developing the concept for Je t'aime, je t'aime. The film uses carefully chaotic editing to create one of the best cinematic representations of a free associative, self-reflective mind. Ridder's time travel is functionally an introspection, an examination of his own life. Introspection is further emphasized by the "time machine" itself, which is a small chamber that looks like a brain. Ridder enters that brain in order to enter his own brain.

>George Lucas was inspired by Pavel Klushantsev's films

Is there evidence that Lucas saw those films? Was it even possible for him to watch them?

If I had to guess, I would say the Soviets just did something similar much earlier.
