There's not hundreds and hundreds because sci-fi usually requires a larger budget



I've been meaning to check out these guys work for some time.


Wow looks interesting. Didn't know about this one.


the deserter and the nomads

I love it but is it sci-fi?



idk why but post apocalyptic = sci fi in my dumb brain

talking about the last segment btw



I think it depends on the cause and resulting effect of the apocalypse for it to be considered science fiction or not. I can not speak for the deserter and the nomads because I have not seen it as of yet.



you should see it, its really good!

Cool, I haven't seen that one

Here's a good hard scifi for you guys

It's a Swedish movie with a bit of a Solaris vibe




1989 or 2013... Or both?



I assume he meant 2013, but maybe you'll want to see the other adaptation too

> Hard to Be a God (1989 film)

> Starring Werner Herzog


On the Silver Globe could have been the GOAT if it wasn't so censored by the Soviets.



I still think that the film is exceptional, but sure the destroyed scenes would have been great to see.

I thought the missing scenes were unfilmed rather than destroyed. They were ordered to destroy the film but thankfully they didn't.


That reminds me of this early short from the director of Delicatessen and Amelie. The aesthetic is similar to Aronofsky's Pi.



Agreed. Some of it really shone, but in a lot of cases, so much context was missing..

I like these three



Never heard of Taking Tiger Mountain, looks interesting though.

It's the name of a Brian Ento album too. The name comes from some Chicom opera. Other than that cool name I think there's not much commonality between any of them.

lol I actually found out about that director on /tv/, haven't seen this one, will try to do soon

thanks for sharing

also my pick for a good sci fi film



What did you hear about that director? I don't know a lot about him, but the films he made are surprisingly different from one another



No discussion really, some anon just name dropped. But I watched a film of his and also 3 shorts because of it, very interesting stuff, A Bomb Was Stolen was incredible and the one you posted looks awesome as well.

Have you seen A Bomb Was Stolen?

> Have you seen A Bomb Was Stolen?

Not yet, but that's part of the reason I said his films are different, at least in genre. Galax is about a "man-doll" humanoid, A Bomb Was Stolen is a black and white comedy with no dialogue, and he also directed a medieval fantasy film called The White Moor. Quite a range just in those three

True I think people should be reminded of Karel Zeman, even though he's often on the fantasy side of things

>A Bomb Was Stolen

Cool opening shot

This clip gives the impression of some kind of art house sci fi but the film turns out to be a dialogue-free comedy inspired by Jacques Tati

Does this qualify as arthouse or is is merely low budget? I'm debating whether or not to watch it.

I will say the director's hair is enraging.

I remember some person on 4chan mentioning Anti Clock, but he said nothing about it. I never heard this film talked about anywhere else. I'm not completely certain it's sci fi.

I'm posting here as a reminder to myself to watch it sometime (it looks interesting enough). I'm also wondering if you guys have seen it?

I like the director's comments in this image.

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.

Chris Marker's Sans Soleil and La Jetée are big classics.

>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.
