I've been thinking about the purpose of this board. What is your opinion:

Do you think this should be a place to talk only about "high cinema", with words like "movie" or "director" forbidden (there are only "films" and "auteurs") with no "capeshits" and blockbusters and allowed,

Or, a place for discussion about every single film with no prejudices, as long it is a film and there is a discussion, not spamming pictures of Aiden Gillan. (there's >>>/tv/ for that)

Discuss, state your mind.

/film/ already is that board and it's been great. I don't care if it's slow, I've had more in-depth discussions here with more intelligent posters than I've ever had in an cinema forum before.


This open arms mindset is naive and asking for trouble. Imageboards are fragile communities, every imageboard that falls from an early point of high quality discussion does so because they lower their basic social guards against "cancer" - in quotes because its definition is particular to each board and in a lot of ways the topic of this thread. You can't just accept anything goes and cross your fingers that stupidity won't proliferate, you have to real standards with a community actively self-moderates to enforce them.

Yeah, pretentiousness can be annoying, especially obscurity for obscurity's sake, but on the other hand you have total amateurish non-enthuisasm which the rest of the internet accommodates so heavily and has already long existed in the english imageboard framework as /tv/. There's also a pull towards the cinephile's otaku-style databasing but it's not something that lends itself to imageboards

What's the value in a board that is 90% threads we've seen before on movies we're all familiar with? If someone makes a thread on The Dark Knight, I'm going to tell them to fuck off/lurk and all of you should, too. When the newfag OPs start to cross their arms and sit on the floor saying "I have just as much right to be here as you do!", hoping to enable any lurking cancer to engage in shitposting with, the board is lost.

Hello, /film/.

>>>/atv/ board owner here.

Our board was created to fill the void of a place to discuss TV shows in a more slow appreciative manner, as threads about less popular shows simply die out on the current /tv/ climate, in the vein of /film/'s board culture. As well as popcorny movies, animations and all that secondary media that doesn't suit this board.

Feel welcome to post there, and we will be linking to /film/ (and /tv/) in our announcement links, unless the board owner here tell us not to.

Giorgio Gaslini Quartet - 5 Donne Per L'assassino (1974)

Cool jazz soundtrack for a giallo with a title that rips off Bava's Sei donne per l'assassino. The music flows very nicely from track 1 through track 9. Since the tracks are split on youtube I chose my favorite.

I DON'T BELONG ANYWHERE: THE CINEMA OF CHANTAL AKERMAN explores some of the Belgian filmmaker's 40 plus films, and from Brussels to Tel Aviv, from Paris to New York, it charts the sites of her peregrinations. An experimental filmmaker, a nomad, Chantal Akerman shared with Marianne Lambert her cinematic trajectory, one that never ceased to interrogate the meaning of her existence. And with her editor and long-time collaborator, Claire Atherton, she examines the origins of her film language, and aesthetic stance.

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...

I usually watch rare, not necessarily arthouse. I like variety and the unexpected. Hopefully something to make me think. Plenty of European films of course, also documentaries, horror, classic Hollywood, Japanese... Some experimental films too but I don't have a lot of patience if it doesn't grab me right away.

Occasionally I watch mainstream, but no capeshit, no comedies. I like Nicholas Refn. I will watch the new Blade Runner sometime, probably by the time everyone has completely forgotten about it.



I try and wait two or three years before watching a mainstream film. I figure that if is written about years later it may have something of value- which has cut out most of the BS. I used to get some film recommendations from movies you may have missed and TCM, but since MYMHM stopped filming and I stopped watching TV, I now just follow production crews, directors, and actors I enjoy.

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.

"The most important living Brazilian filmmaker" is no longer living. Nelson Pereira dos Santos has died. I see no English news of it.


Santos is the most important living Brazilian filmmaker. In his quintessential career, his films have influenced directors and cinephiles for over 50 years. Of the most influential Brazilian films of the past five decades, at least one was directed by Santos in each decade. These influential films include Rio, 40 Graus (Rio, 100 Degrees F., 1955), Vidas Secas (Barren Lives, 1963), Como Era Gostoso o MeuFrancês (How Tasty Was My Little Frenchman, 1971), Memórias do Cárcere (1984), and Casa-Grande e Senzala (2000). Santos’ impact on Latin American cinema cannot be overstated. For critics and cinephiles all over the world, Santos’ early films are milestones in the emergence of modern post-war cinema. Inspired by neorealism, his films from the 1950s and 1960s depict the brutal reality of life in the favelados (slums)found in cities such as Rio de Janeiro, or of retirantes (migrants) fleeing the famine in the drought-stricken northeastern region of Brazil.

I found a couple interesting Kubrick links today.

First this site with a wide range of content: http://www.visual-memory.co.uk/

<This page links to four separate sites exploring the work of Stanley Kubrick. The Kubrick Site is a non-profit archive for documentary materials; The Kubrick FAQ, attempts to answer some of the questions asked on alt.movies.kubrick; 2001: A Space Odyssey Program, showcases the original 1968 foyer program that accompanied the first release of the film and Stanley Kubrick 1928-1999 is the archive of a site that closed September 1999. These sites are maintained by Roderick Munday.

Second these recollections of 2001 from actor Keir Dullea and effects supervisor Douglas Trumbull: https://www.theguardian.com/film/2018/mar/12/how-we-made-2001-a-space-odyssey-stanley-kubrick-hal

<One day in the early 1960s, I had my palm read at a funfair. The palmist saw a rocket ship in my future. Then my agent called and said I’d been offered the lead in Stanley Kubrick’s next film. When I started reading the script, something felt terribly familiar. As a teenager, I had read The Sentinel, a short story by Arthur C Clarke – and that was the starting point for Kubrick’s film.

<The first day of shooting ended up being delayed because Kubrick didn’t like my shoes. The wardrobe came up with the right pair real fast. I felt awed working with him and he picked up that I was tense – which is terrible for an actor. After a week, he took me aside and said: “Keir, you’re everything I’m looking for.”

<The rotating living quarters of the Discovery spacecraft were built by Vickers. They were 70ft across and turned at 3mph. The camera tricks the crew used to simulate centrifugal force were ingenious.

Here's a blog translating Raúl Ruiz: Diario. Notas, recuerdos y secuencias de cosas vistas (2017) into English.

Day One; https://tinyletter.com/ruizdiaries/letters/sunday-november-21st-1993-hello-everyone

Sunday November 21st, 1993

Hey! Welcome! I'll be translating the Raúl Ruiz diaries for as long as the copyright people will get to me and sue my ass. In the meantime, enjoy, and if you think that I'm doing a good work with these translations, give up a tip at My Kofi it really helps a lot!

Cafe de la Bastilla. Yesterday I finished writing my first letter in 20 years. Today I start this film diary, the first in 52 years of life. Reasons? None. Something unlocked (Gallicism) in my head. Curiosity to see what happens when one goes back in a moment of day and to calendar (Milanese verb) hour by hour.

Recent reading of the hilarious reading diary by Fozio (Adelphi) and re-reading o so many curious papers (The Unquiet Grave by Connolly, which was just translated to French). Walk through the La Bastilla neighborhood searching for a Japanese restaurant (today is Sunday), meditating about the frontiers of odors. Since a few days I've been trying to orchestrate honeys and vinegars into some crumbs of my invention, more or less inspired in the Bolognese-Chilean recipes by Abate Molina: oseille -coriander juice with hot perfumes: cinnamon, [-], anchovies and tomatoes. Potatoes boiled in chicken broth disengaged with maqui juice. The day before yesterday I mixed capers, truffle oil, saffron pistils and some grains of honey pollen, and the result was dead sparrow feathers. Cooking dishes that remind you of neatly putrid corpses.

Everything freezes in Paris. Passers-by almost run on the streets, frozen: in other words, formulas of domestic economy. Tomorrow by this hour I'll be in Lisbon, preparing Fado, Major and Minor. In two weeks, filming. It's been two years since I last touched 35mm.

The images look smooth to me, almost too smooth, with not much film grain. Was there too much noise reduction or did the DVD transfer look the same way?

I don't know but the transfer is flawed for other Japan-specific reasons

This thread should serve the purpose of the sharing and discussing of new and upcoming films. I'll start with the film November.

>In a Medieval Estonian village, a group of peasants use magic and folk remedies to survive the winter, and a young woman tries to get a young man to love her.

Another one, The Green Fog.

>Director Guy Maddin's interpretation of the Alfred Hitchcock classic Vertigo, pieced together using footage from old films and television shows shot in and around the San Francisco area.


Good. I thought about making a thread like this. We don't focus enough on new releases here.

Both of those trailers look excellent btw.

Absolutely agreed. There are still good films being made, they're just hard to access and not publicized often. Here is another one, see if it sparks your interest.


>In the nineteenth century, a French adventurer sets off to establish a kingdom in the inhospitable South of Chile, uniting the feared Mapuche under him. The response of the Chilean army is devastating.

I also saw one recommended in one of the horror threads, Like Me. I briefly commented on it. Really did not like it, some cool shots but not much else.

This caught my attention, a new one from the director of Hausu.

A new Kubrick documentary

>Leon Vitali was a rising British television actor when Stanley Kubrick picked him for the role of Lord Bullingdon in Barry Lyndon. That first encounter with the famed auteur proved decisive — he swiftly resolved to devote the rest of his life working for the director, this time behind the scenes, and took on just about every job available: casting director, acting coach, location scouter, sound engineer, color corrector, A.D., promoter, and eventually restorer of Kubrick’s films. Tony Zierra’s affecting documentary profiles the devoted “filmworker” — Vitali’s preferred job title — as he enthusiastically recounts his days with the notoriously meticulous, volatile and obsessive director. The experiences brought both tremendous sacrifice and glowing pride. Filmworker celebrates the invisible hands that shape masterpieces, reminding us that behind every great director, there is a Leon Vitali. – Telluride Film Festival

Because surprisingly Netflix does not have a monopoly on this shit yet.

I know a lot of folks that have subscriptions to different anime services. Cinema however i don't see as much love.

Personally the only one i'm using for my 'when i'm away from my collection' service is 'SHUDDER'. Its pretty small but lately they got some nice wins like all the Hammer Horror and Universal Monster Movies as well as some exclusives like Sadako vs Kayako -which is surprisingly not dogshit for whats basically Shaun of the Dead for J Horror- and contracted original shorts written by folks like Alan Moore.

Doesn't seem popular in the mainstream but its pretty cheap and i've gotten a lot of good views out of it.

Personally i just wish they expanded their documentary section. Though ROOM 237 is an unintentional comedy i recommend watching if only to question what the fuck makes people like that.

Are there any other movie services you use now the days of the mom and pop video rental store are a thing of the past?

I found a new FREE streaming service with a good selection of films. They just added Frederick Wiseman's filmography.


The snag is that you need to have an account at a participating library. I'm having trouble getting one, since my local library is not included yet. I wonder if there are libraries that allow you to open an account online?




>now the days of the mom and pop video rental store are a thing of the past?

I live near a good one so this isn't an issue for me. They have great titles.


>I know a lot of folks that have subscriptions to different anime services

As an avid anime fan I highly recommend against this, big streaming services like Crunchyroll give barely any of the profits they earn to the people who were actually responsible for the creation of those anime, the subtitles and video quality they provide are often of much lower quality than what you can get through torrentable fan-releases and perhaps most importantly, their collections are quite small and mostly consist of the most mainstream titles out there thus not giving much option for those who are interested in the more mature, alternative works the medium can provide.

There's literally zero reason to make use of these services unless you're A) too retarded to know how to torrent which you could still learn though a quick google search or B) enjoy wasting money on things you don't need but in that case you might as well buy actual physical copies of the anime which are expensive but are probably fun to collect if you're into it.

Wow, thanks for sharing these. Definitely renewed my interest in video essays. The western essay solidified many abstract thoughts that I subconsciously held surrounding the genre. It was delivered exceptionally well too.

Is this Tony Zhou? If so I dislike his voice and delivery. I never watched "Every Frame a Painting" which is a sickeningly precious title.



Yep, the sickening voice belongs to that faggot.

Part 3 is a lot more about the audience than the musicians. And they are indeed homeless, almost all of them live a shitty life on the street or in abandoned houses. They come from bad circumstances but they can't or won't rise above it. The punk mindset makes them tough but also makes them rather stupid, as they denounce a lot of things (like working) that would improve their situation. They panhandle and drink all day.

It's a great documentary. The first two are pretty fun, part 3 is more serious and dark.

SPIN (1995) is a surreal exposé of media-constructed reality. The documentary is composed of raw satellite footage of the behind-the-scenes maneuverings of politicians and newscasters in the 1992 presidential campaign, all presuming they're off camera.

The media purposely ignore certain candidates too, just as they do today. In 1992 the blacklisted candidate was Larry Agran: https://youtu.be/PlJkgQZb0VU?t=16m43s



Thanks. The campaign stuff was pretty good. I assume it's no longer possible to access that type of footage.

My interest waned as the director started complaining about all the ways that the news didn't conform to his particular worldview.

At one point Larry King says "What's the deal with Perot?" I'm wondering the same thing. Why is Perot missing from this documentary? I've only watched the first half.
