Pan Nalin's Samsara was a great watch. I've seen Valley of Flowers from him before, which I liked. It's not really that good of a Buddhist film, because it really centred only around one concept, oneness. Wasn't subtle with dealing with it either, the man enters the coursing river on several occasions, the wife gives the children the simple parable of the stick on the river, the end with the teaching inscribed into the stone. Deep and meditative it isn't, so I didn't really think I should approach it from that perspective. It's more to do with the worldly things, hence we spend most of the film seeing the man barter grain, fight with locals about prices, buying western consumer products, having sex with seasonal workers. I respect Palin in the sense that he doesn't shy away from showing the sexual nature of humans, but still he manages to keep it dignified.
The ending was great, though I think most of the people miss the point of it, at least from what I've read. They mention her being a feminist voice in a cultural sphere that is mostly composed of males. While the monologue does way the viewer to give heed to the females who are left behind when a man takes on the robes, I found it to be more about eliciting empathy towards the wordly way in a convincing argument. After all, it can't be easy to leave it all behind and pursue something intangible. It's a fight Siddhartha through in his head as well, I'd think. A necessary step to achieve enlightenment.
Is it unfair towards those left behind? Is it selfishness? It's clear the end is the culmination of the film, which isn't a view of Buddhism from within, but from the outside.
It seems to some that the ending was ambiguous about his choice to return to the wife or not. I think it's clear he didn't return. The worldly ways were necessary to understand what he was letting go of, not to stay dwelling on them.
>>
>>157645450
I only have very cursory knowledge of Buddhism, but this certainly seems interesting. Which of the ones you've seen from Nalin would you recommend more? Never seen anything from him.

I'd recommend starting with Samsara, it's probably his most accessible. Valley of Flowers is more of a romantic film that deals with reincarnation. If that doesn't sound bad, I'm sure you'd like it.
I've heard some divisive stuff from Angry Indian Goddesses, so I'm interested in watching that eventually. Though I think the next Nalin I'm watching is Ayurveda, since I like documentaries, I feel it's easier to connect with it. Some other good films I've enjoyed about Buddhism, Amongst White Clouds, Tulku & Milarepa. I should also watch Herzog's Wheel of Time.

Films are always -- or at least should be -- an emotional experience instead of "intellectual" endeavor. What are your favorite films?

Denying means you're stuck in rudimentary habits when it comes to watching films. The experience of viewing, is malleable.
You are at the epicentre of it all when watching, absorbing what is shown. Intellectual approach follows after the fact, you don't jot down stuff while watching or try to make a mental map of everything happening in the film while watching. No, all that follows after you've seen it. What I mean by taking agency, is that you yourself apply yourself to the film, take initiative, don't let the film spoon-feed basics, think about them yourself. If you can't retroactively engage with a film in a meaningful way, it means you're still stuck in an undeveloped viewing habit.

Like I said, just because someone talked about a film for a month or 2 doesn't make them /film/core. No one talks about most of them now and Han Ye has been a meme for more than a year.

>>157652709
The Tsai shilling started 2 months ago at most newfag. He was only mentioned from time to time as a recommended contemporary director before that. Let alone the newfag obsession with Neon God.

Not really, it's just pedo-core that got brought into /film/.
The thing that Han Ye and American Eunuchs have in common is rarity, and giving meme-status to these obscure things that nobody else talks about. It's hard to have any more if we keep discussing Criterion-core.

They only watch the films they distribute and refuse to watch anything outside of that
>>

no one is going to argue that Criterion doesn't release a decent film now and then—the problem is the fetishization of Criterion as a brand, as if being a Criterion release is a valid categorization or metric of any degree.

Do you think Criterion is responsible for creating the canon of cinema? Your point is the equivalent of blaming Spotify for why only entry level indie music is discussed on /mu/. It's a fucking streaming service so I can watch films I want to see without waiting 5 days for some russian on rutracker to seed a shitty vhs rip at 5kb/s. The amount you retards seethe at a fucking STREAMING SERVICE as if it was some authoritative curator of quality films is absurd. Yes, Criterion is why people who get into arthouse films watch Tarkovsky and Bergman. Please grow up and stop basing your beliefs around imaginary people you dislike

>Is Criterion responsible for creating the canon of cinema?
In a large part, yes. Distribution is absolutely key in establishing the canon. There are many canonical directors such as Ozu or Mizoguchi who weren't known in the west until Kurosawa popularized Japanese cienema for eunuchs like you and started western distribution.
>Is Criterion the reason the "arthouse" canon is discussed?
Yes, they're the main distributor of entry-level arthouse, so newfags will trust the label.

You unironically believe Criterion was responsible for creating the canon instead of them issuing the most popular canonized films like Stalker or Seventh Seal in order to make money?
>Yes, they're the main distributor of entry-level arthouse, so newfags will trust the label.
So "newfags", new into arthouse, won't watch entry-level arthouse because they are the most accessible and ENTRY-LEVEL films but because they blindly love Criterion?
> a lifelong quest to pretend to have "superior taste", completely defined by popular Criterion releases
Are you unable to view the mainstream canon arthouse films as anything but "popular Criterion releases"? Once again, those films would still be discussed ad nauseam even if Criterion never existed. This whole argument is completely pointless, you are essentially arguing that "entry-level bad!!!" and that it shouldn't be discussed, seemingly failing to realize that at least half of this general is people who are "entry-level". Instead of whining that entry-level people talk about entry-level films, post something worthwhile.
