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.

>Fulfilling his filmmaking dream of 40 years, Nobuhiko Obayashi's luminous new feature "Hanagatami" delivers a timeless story of the pureness of youth beset by the chaos of war.

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

Is there anything promising at Cannes this year or is it the usual overhyped pabulum

I'd watch Don Quixote because it's taken such a long time to complete

Or is it a completely different film than what Terry Gilliam was making in the early aughts?



It looks stupid. Gilliam lost touch a while ago.

Yeah oddly enough his first attempt at Quixote was probably the beginning of the end for him. Fear and Loathing was the last good thing he made imo. He's kind of like Tim Burton, similar style, similar career decline.

I'm kind of cheating with this one since it was filmed so long ago. But yesterday the project finally finished, so the film should be released sometime soon.

There's another new Welles project, this one directed by Mark Cousins (who made The Story of Film: An Odyssey)

The Eyes of Orson Welles to world premiere in Cannes

The Eyes of Orson Welles, a new documentary by Mark Cousins revealing a fresh insight into the life and art of Orson Welles, will have its world premiere in official selection at the 71th Cannes Film Festival (May 8-19).

Directed, written, filmed and narrated by Cousins, the film is based upon unprecedented and exclusive access to a lifetime of private drawings and paintings by Welles, most never before made public.

Cold War (Zimna Wojna)

Pawel Pawlikowski

There's not too much in the clip besides people dancing to Bill Haley. I'd bet the rest of the film is slower and does not have this much action.

Make way, we have a winner

Dead Souls

Wang Bing's new documentary is a momentous eight-hour oral history of what truly went on in the Chinese "re-education" camps of the late 1950s.

>An eight-hour-and-15-minute documentary is not something you walk into lightly, especially when its subject is the imprisonment and slow-motion murder of human beings. But Wang Bing’s “Dead Souls” is a powerfully sobering and clear-eyed investigation that justifies its length through the gravity and presence of its testimony. Wang, like Claude Lanzmann in “Shoah,” isn’t just making a historical documentary; he’s using oral memoir to forge an artifact of history. “Dead Souls” has its longueurs, and it may not be as staggering a work as “Shoah” or Solzhenitsyn’s “The Gulag Archipelago,” but it does just what a movie that’s this long should: It uses its intimate sprawl to catalyze your view of something — in this case, how the totalitarianism of the 20th century actually worked. (One is tempted to say: quite well.)

Zhang Yimou - Shadow

>Zhang is one of China’s foremost directors of drama, pithy comedy and large-scale historical action. Many of his films have played at major festivals and been China’s foreign-language Oscar contender. His venture into the mainstream with “The Great Wall,” a VFX-heavy historical fantasy actioner shot largely in English and starring Matt Damon, enraged some of his most loyal fans in China for being popcorn entertainment.

>His latest, Shadow, is a martial arts drama set in the Three Kingdom’s era, although little has been revealed about the plot other than it is a return to Mandarin language.

The articles show this film as a big mysterious project, makes me want to see it

So I wonder if that is a marketing ploy?



>marketing ploy

I can't say that was their main intent while making the project but they are probably playing it up now.

I don't see too much of a mystery though. The writers act like it's a mystery but at the same time they know quite a lot about it.

New Netflix trailer for The Other Side of the Wind

>Surrounded by fans and skeptics, grizzled director J.J. "Jake" Hannaford (a revelatory John Huston) returns from years abroad in Europe to a changed Hollywood, where he attempts to make his comeback: a career summation that can only be the work of cinema's most adventurous filmmaker, Orson Welles.









Incorrect tbh fam




Orson Welles is beneath you, and he shouldn't be mentioned on a film board. Care to explain? I'm also curious to see your last quality contribution, because the sophomoric sneering shtick is better suited for 4chan.


File: 5607f3aa3d58cfa⋯.jpg (17.6 KB, 400x300, 4:3, tumblr_inline_oeapncoN3i1s….jpg)


I'm not talking about Orson Welles you fucking dolt, and your attempt to be verbose to seem above me isn't fooling anyone, you belong back at Reddit, but that aside I explicitly said


nothing to do with Welles, but supporting Netflix is a deal breaker, they can resurrect every 1920's film maker from the dead and have them make new movies solely to have them be Netflix exclusives but even then it's your obligation if you're not a terrible person that is to boycott them. Now do 8chan and the rest of the imageboards of the world a favor and fuck off back to Reddit.

Is this as bad as it looks? The retro poster got me interested and M83 does the music. But the trailer looks repulsive.

The story is about women making gay porn in the 70s. That sound ridiculous. Why would women make gay porn?



> the personal story of a young woman becomes the reflection of the birth of the 20th century

That sounds a lot like My Twentieth Century

Walking in Darkness (2019)

directed by Tang Tang

A grim thriller from China. I don't have a plot summary because there is not much information about this film yet. But the trailer is intense,



>Why would women make gay porn?

Not to fag the thread up but a lot of gay porn producers are women, or pioneering women aka trannies.

Seems like they had the vision to make movies most men would find uncomfortable to film, and it seems no gay was smart enough to operate a camera, find crucial contacts, publishers and warehouses/rooms to do the banging, homos just did all their action spontaneously.

Also you need a somewhat respectable public image to do all that bidding, even in porno market, and women usually look more respectable than a strong dude with an overly silly lisp.

At least that's what i understood after reading Sharon Kane and Chi Chi LaRue stories, 2 important characters in a famed gay porn company known lately for appearing in edited joke videos about bad acting in gay porn movies. That's for the early years, nowadays it's a whole 'nother story.

I-i'm not gay, i just watch the joke vids for laughs at times. The poster looks quite pretentious, but who knows.

What's going on with this anyway? There was a trailer, but now it's hard to find any that work. Lionsgate put copyright restrictions on the videos. Weird.

Age of Chinese science fiction is upon us, thank God.



I was wondering when China will put token round-eyes in their films to pander to Westerners. Maybe at first it will be the same actor every time. In The Wandering Earth I see a couple of Europeans who have mostly worked in Chinese films.

Mr. Jones (Agnieszka Holland, 2019)

I'm surprised to see a new film about the Holodomor. Perhaps it comes from the heavy anti-Russia sentiment that's so trendy these days? Anyway the production design looks impeccable, so this one could be worth a look.

>A Welsh journalist breaks the news in the western media of the famine in the Soviet Union in the early 1930s.

youtube comment

<yet another pack of lies on how bad Stalin was & 'murdered millions' while showing Russia as if there's no other season but winter.

😂 😂 😂



>pack of lies on how bad Stalin was

But Stalin was a bad guy, always will be.

>journalist breaks the news in the western media

Instantly dropped.

Looks like something from Abrams/Nolan. I also totally hate the bleached "history" films. Who the fuck started it deserves to be shot and everyone who follows it to.



> pander to Westerners.

I hope not, it would disappoint me then!!!

Matthew Barney - REDOUBT

>Transposing the Diana myth onto a hunting party in the Northern Rockies, Barney paints a cinematic picture of the American West, trading his familiar baroque visuals for the straightforward sublimity of the landscape and the ineffable strangeness of its inhabitants. The film, a component of a larger project dated 2016–19, is a portrait of central Idaho, shot in the Sawtooth Range, east of Boise, where Barney lived from age six until college

Werner Herzog - Family Romance LLC




Girl power and the overall shallow depth of our current culture.



Why do you post Herzog when that hack didn't make good feature film for like 30 years? Just because some stupid youtube channel and probably dozens of "critics" say he's "auteur" doesn't make him one.

Moreover, it feels like some shitty student project. muh japan anyway



This is an utter contrarian post



Interested too, I'm tired of going through trash.



Well, then what watchworthy feature film he put out in the last 30 years? This is hardly contrarian opinion, contrarian would be saying that Aguirre was shit.


File: a26f97257299881⋯.jpg (152.38 KB, 1000x702, 500:351, ci.aspx.jpg)



few issues:


>Emerging Slovakian filmmaker György Kristóf is readying yet another ambitious project after his feature debut "Out", "Bunker"



>Out, Bunker

so they are angloamerican films and they have the same names on whichever language-edition you use too, hence confirmed


Another thing that struck me is the eu advertisment on the right.


as if their "critique" level wasn't horrendous as it is

>muh "best" this, "best" that

either they are their own authority or they accept bigger authority, they can't coexist if both do very much the same thing, there's wikipedia, or should be, for poll aggregation



>default is english

it should be, and should have been since 2002, fr/es/it/de

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 https://cineuropa.org/en/newsdetail/372892/ a critique?; either the film is worth reviewing so it's actual critique or you just say few words which can be contained in the /news/ general, worse than ebert-tier

rss feed sucks

>10 reviews can be viewed at once max

Why is juxtaposition so overused?

it resembles gamasutra



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


File: 38c2f595e24033c⋯.jpg (126.54 KB, 1714x1000, 857:500, MV5BMDU1YmM4NzQtZTMwZC00ZG….jpg)

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

oh, and I noticed I have serious issue with modern "arthouse" being giallo first and social commentary second or reversed

at least they don't fear legs https://www.cinemaldito.com/primer-trailer-para-une-fille-facile-de-rebecca-zlotowski/ don't watch the trailer, it's ugly

rss feed sucks too

10 articles per page too

another personal problem, since they host that webpage on wordpress making it seem more unprofessional, is using youtube instead of invidious, but that's the last thing I care about

big plus it being exclusively spanish

I'm overwhemed by the sheer amount of reviews and information too

Overall, I've bookmarked it, thanks.
