What we have to say about Tarkovsky is very well explained by Deleuze, if you don't take it, I just don't care, tbh. I have already educated you more than enough with a path to follow and make you think.

Probably the other anon (who linked the "Navajo" versions of his essay) is more willing to discuss, so just wait for his reply; this is a friendly community after all.



I think if you can't explain your position on something than you may be just parroting someone else's without having a real grasp on it

I'm really interested in learning about it but don't know where to start. Are there any good resources for understanding film workflow? All the aesthetic related things like negative stocks, film stocks, color grading, lookup tables, and how they all fit together. How "warm"/"cool"/"washed out" palettes are made and all that.

Pic related, some red that I like.

For everything always go with your gut or what you feel and cement experiments before learning conventionally or the rules. I recommend drawing or photography for angle perspective and ideas before film, every scene/frame is it's own work of art.


This is good advice, looking at what's mediocre will tell you what not to do.

I like a lot of the same films, but I'm having trouble thinking of a related recommendation that you wouldn't know about. But I'll try anyway. Walkabout reminded me of The Territory (1981) by Raoul Ruiz which involves another hazardous journey through a hostile environment. Since it's Ruiz, the story takes more of a bizarre direction.

Das Blumenwunder (1926)

L'ange (1982)

Probably unlike anything you've ever seen. Indeed a very unique film.

A study and experimentation of lighting; montage; and movement. The movie felt more like an aesthetic experience so it is difficult to find words to talk about it.

Some of the first scenes felt as if they took a lot of influence from the romantic era of painting; take for example Francisco Goya. Towards the end a lot of sequences felt as if they took a lot of influence from german expressionism (I'm not talking about paintigns here but about cinema).

His influences for L'ange are interesting. The woman with the pitcher looks like something from the Dutch masters, and the staircase at the end reminded me of Murnau's Faust (or German expressionism like you say). Some of the other scenes are based on works from Albrecht Dürer and Lars Bo.



I get your view of Alexander Nevsky, it is a film that is greatly limited by its very cheap costumes and low style. But, the sequencing is pretty much basis for majority of battle scenes in cinema, and I think there are of course better battle scenes, but they do follow similar methodologies. Still, would be much nicer if it were not for the fucking buckets as helmets and set which is visibly tiny.

Also yeah, internet opinions are so often so trash and people think they are somehow more influential if they watched a BIG NUMBER of films. I do not even hold a count, cause I know I will forget bad films usually.

Ok, some next films I watched:

>On Body and Soul

Very, very romantic. Ildiko Enyedi is imho one of the most underappreciated directors, she can pretty much portray both sides of gendered emotion, and imho one of the best portrayals of love in modern cinema. Also On Body and Soul is literally autistic gf kino so what's to ask of more. As in any Enyedi, the editing and composition pretty much produce very slight magical realism, imagine if Wojciech Has decided to make films that are more grounded in reality -> you have Enyedi's style.

>Electric Dragon 80.000 V

Very simple film, but with great audiovisuals. Within its low budget it manages to push for experimental style and unique experience. It is also quite short so it keeps its focus very well. If you enjoyed Tetsuo, I am pretty sure you will enjoy Electric Dragon.

>Trouble in Paradise

Well, it's Ernst Lubitsch. Zizek was quite right in seeing it as transgression comedy as it reverses the change of roles and it shows how upper classes are limiting in comaprison to criminal life. Not really great cinematographically, but well it's pre-code comedy, not really focused on that as Soviet Montage styles still were not (quite) dominant in Western Cinema.

>Guilty Hands

tbh just watched it because Kay Francis was fucking beautiful (and I literally don't find any of gals now even Post too long. Click here to view the full text.



> is a film that is greatly limited by its very cheap costumes and low style.

True, that organ looked like it might fall apart if someone sneezed on it. The sinister organist is a memorable character, but I wondered why the organ was there in the first place. I guess it was to underscore the religious drive (thus anti-Soviet) of the advancing army. Instead of battle horns they march to a church organ.

If you like film soundtracks you should check out KURO (2017). The composer not only directs but also acts in the film. I think the music has a closer connection to the images than you'll find in many other films. The music is best experienced by watching the film rather than just listening.

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.

The whole thing is based on the album and I find the version in the movie better than the actual album.


i'm having difficulties understanding the original post. i've slightly reformatted it to be what i think the original poster most likely meant. i removed some redundancies, added commas and pronomials. i cannot be sure whether what i think the original post meant is what the original poster meant it to mean, so i'm including it here so that the original poster can verify or clarify. despite my syntaxic efforts, the meaning of the sentence that i enbracketed eludes me.

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.

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?

Montreal By Night (1947)


File: 2706f5710efb5a6⋯.jpg (76.51 KB, 970x647, 970:647, monrovia-indiana.jpg)


<Monrovia, Indiana explores a small town in rural, mid-America and illustrates how values like community service, duty, spiritual life, generosity and authenticity are formed, experienced and lived along with conflicting stereotypes. The film gives a complex and nuanced view of daily life in Monrovia and provides some understanding of a way of life whose influence and force have not always been recognized or understood in the big cities on the east and west coasts of America and in other countries.

Director’s Statement

<I thought a film about a small farming community in the Midwest would be a good addition to the series I have been doing on contemporary American life. Monrovia, Indiana appealed to me because of its size (1,400 residents), location (I have never shot a film in the rural Midwest) and the shared cultural and religious interests within the community. During the nine weeks of filming the residents of Monrovia were helpful, friendly and welcoming and gave me access to all aspects of daily life. Life in big American cities on the east and west coasts is regularly reported on and I was interested in learning more about life in small town America and sharing my view.

Look at Life - Down London River, 1959

A trip down the Thames tothe Port of London and "2000 acres of docks".

Interesting comment section about the ways London has changed -- some negative comments about immigration as you might expect, also people noticing how prominent buildings were filthy from pollution back then. The London docks no longer exist as they could not facilitate large vessels carrying shipping containers.

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...

Do people here watch horror, slasher... type movies ? Is there any artistic value to them? I've always avoided those genres and wonder if getting into them could be worth it.



What do you normally watch? I'm not a huge horror buff but I'll watch one every month or two. It's typically old or foreign. I try to choose something unique, but I don't expect to get intellectual gratification from watching.

they also seem to suck dick of the industry very hard

every two or three days they put out 8 articles, which is too much for me, if they would make /news/ general puting all in one biweekly would be better, it's all bulshit too full of redundant information (what's the point? https://cineuropa.org/en/newsdetail/373623) and it's not like there's anybody checkin fucking film site every two days, or is there?

directors have filmography listed, that's nice, but there's no complete list of articles about the director, only about the films

reviews with no tags, unclickable authors of the reviews and way too short reviews with nothing-saying big words, someone calls this Post too long. Click here to view the full text.



I don't use the site for anything other than finding names of new releases. If there's something better I'm all ears.

Oh and here's one more that posts a lot of new trailers: https://www.cinemaldito.com/



you forgot to mention, when you mentioned trailers, their https://invidio.us/channel/UCwu67nMWl3Xq-_mw6Xr6vbQ

shame on them for not including exact link under the video tho

Compared to cineuropa:

clickable authours, although there's nothing about their background etc too

tagged, although it's not exactly what I would want: "drama" tag, what's the point of something that vague?, but directors are tagged so you can search both directors and their films and for films mentioned in the review

they make analysis, can't comment on them as I haven't read any https://www.cinemaldito.com/tras-el-mito-apuntes-sobre-lo-que-esconde-silver-lake/

they also do tasteofcinema-like lists https://www.cinemaldito.com/las-25-peliculas-noir-malditas/

3 pics instead of one in the review and the reviews justify themselves more, you can compare it yourself, it's not like it's hard to write something better than the cineuropa clowns https://www.cinemaldito.com/liberte-albert-serra/ if you don't speak spanish and don't want to use javascript, here's a tool you can use http://aplica.prompsit.com/en/, although it's better if you learn spanish haha

some reviews are more than 5 paragraphs https://www.cinemaldito.com/lo-que-esconde-silver-lake-david-robert-mitchell/

you seem to be able to comment the articles, although there are no comments

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

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

Cyberpunk is dazzling future neon and technology fighting big bad corporations as we pretend to still live in the 2000s and early 2010s, nothing more.



Ok, but whats your point?


Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas



>OP wanted Nocturnal, colorful, 80s aesthetic

>Give him a movie thats not 80s and mostly set in daytime

Does anyone here on /film/ think certain animated works are worthy topics of discussion? Work like pics related

or am I better off at /ani/?

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.

Could you explain what pure visual poetry has to do with cinema?


Films targeting kids are not necessarily bad. Films misunderstanding the cognitive capacity of kids ''are'.
