VertigoMulholland DrivePersonaThe holy trinity of masterpieces of cinema that transcend the subconscious. These are not mere films. They are the works of medieval craftsman of yore. They should be spoken of in the same breath as Michaelangelo and Raphael.
Top 5 zoomer directors1. ROBERT EGGERS2. DAMIEN CHAZELLE3. ARI ASTER4. THE SAFDIE BROTHERS5. XAVIER DOLAN
>>177165621>VertigoExceptionally good>Mulholland Drivepretty damn good>PersonaHaven't seen

Did the Sight and Sound 2022 list ever release?
>>177166751They've now confirmed it comes out in December.
Does /film/ like director home movies?https://boxd.it/jcnHI
>>177166652Somebody actually commented this>>177166227Mitchell is the best>>177165621Vertigo is averagePersona is badMullholland is kino but not the best Lynch
>>177167026You are boring and dumb
What does /film/ think about Zizek's film commentary especially on Hitchcock?
>babby's first arthouse is as good as Michelangelo!!!
>>177167113>MichelangeloWho gives a fuck? Tourist painter
>>177166787prepare to get LYNCHED like never before
>>177166227All irrelevant faggots and the first guy only made one solid film.
>>177167108I have not seen that commentary specifically, but Zizek is great at opening your eye to the matrix of capitalism. Once you are aware of it, at least you can either choose to defend it (evil) or fight against it (good). But you no longer have the excuse of ignorance.
Once again, I ask for more directors like Kenneth Anger, his visual and kinetic energy is out of this world.Mouse Heaven is shocking and quite ominous but my favorite is Pleasure Dome with the mass ost.
>>177167221>Zizek is great at opening your eye to the matrix of capitalismNo he's a retarded communist I really don't give a fuck about his political views, only found his film criticism interesting>to defend it (evil) or fight against it (good)Peak zoomer retardation, did they teach you crap in (((college)))
>>177167256He is a Satanist.
>>177167113Who are you quoting?
>>177167062For what reason. Femoid goes to the spa, 1960s blockbuster with Freud psychology, and Lynch explaining the entire twist the last 15 minutes of the film but Redditors still being confused is not the peak of cinema. Watch more. I also don’t like Italian painters.>>177167286Alright this is the energy we need in here. Based.>>177167256Anger sucks
>>1771673424chan, the place of morals

Too much RELIGIOUS GARBAGE in these threads.
>>177167721Pretty much every single good film ins about religion is some way, hate to break it to you anon..
>>177167814The godfather is not about religion and that's just one example
>>177167892Yes it is
>>177167721Our elite worship The Sinister Current
>>177167892Out of all the films you could've chosen you go with one that is actually very obviously about religion lmao
It did not escape my notice that one of my posts was deleted by a janny who is probably a homosexual Judeo-Marxist.
Did you watch Vortex by Gaspar Noè?
>>177167770PAUL SCHRADER WROTE A TWEEEEEETPAULEINE KAEL WROTE A REVIEW. PAULINE KAEL!!!IT'S A FILM PRINT RELEASED BY THE CRITERION COLLECTION FROM MARTIN SCORSESE'S PERSONAL COLLECTION!!!
>>177167939>>177168207it is not about religion in any way, it is about the italian mafioso. the religion in it is just showing the corruption of the catholic church.
>>177168750Embarassing take. There's a very clear sense of juxtaposing christian values that are feigned by the mafia against the brutal reality of their action. The baptism scene is not about the corruption of the church, it's about showing the contrast between purity and darkness. Michael is also clearly portrayed as a devil figure here.
Woody Allen is reddit.
>>177168977Don't care what's reddit or not. You do
>>177167178the biggest star of 1918, myrtle gonzalez, is totally forgottennone of /film/ matters. the only director who will last forever is Spielberg, with films such as ET, and Star Wars
>>177169030muh jodorowsky dune meme.on the silver globe is not unfinished. It is done for everyone to see. the scenes that weren't completed don't really hurt it. every movie deals with compromises.
>>177169246>the biggest star of 1918, myrtle gonzalezSource?
>>177169246>the biggest star of 1918You mean Mary Pickford.
>>177169246ET has no cultural capital with anyone under 30 nowadays anymore
>>177169246He didn't direct ET and most of his films are responsible for the worst parts of Hollywood sentimentality today.
>>177169469>He didn't direct ETRetard.
>>177169469>He didn't direct ET/film/ intellectuals
>>177169360Zulawski is reddit anyway.
>>177169589Nah he scares reddit
>>177169246He didn't direct Star Wars.
>>177169800JJ Abrams directed Nu Star Wars and he is discount Spielberg with even less soul.
recommend me kinos with the occult.
>>177169896Rosemary' BabyThe ShiningThe UninvitedThe EntityThe Last Temptation Of ChristCronosOnibaba
>>177169896I really wonder what Cassavetes was like behind the scenes of this. Was he trying to backseat direct Polanski? Did he improvise scenes of himself slapping Mia Farrow around? Did he show up to set drunk? I wish we had more stories of what cassavetes was like outside of his own sets.
>When Jack Nicholson played with Marlon Brando in the Missouri Breaks, on the first day of filming, they did seven shots with Marlon Brando, and one with Jack Nicholson.>Jack Nicholson was so astonished by Marlon Brando's ability, he threatened to quit the movie. >The director calmed him down, and they halted filming for a couple days to rehearse more.>When asked about his experience working alongside Brando, Jack Nicholson said he didn't know what acting with Brando was like, because he was acting alongside god.
>>177170087Yeah I wondered this too, but Polanski was already important enough he probably did not backseat direct. It is only with these first time nobodies that the actors take over the set. Or the ones who are huge, DeNiro is known to completely take over every set he is on.
>>177170368Rosemary's Baby was also a huge property so they knew they were lucky to be a part of it.
>>177170312the missouri breaks is just okay, and Brando is essentially bugs bunny in that movie. Whatever reefer Nicholson was smoking during production I would love to try.
>>177170087Did you see the movie where he beats and shoots Ronald Reagan?
>>177168750Bro are you retarded, if Michael were to become a good Christian none of the fucked up shit would happen to him.
>>177170637Yeah I saw this one, and I didn't really care too much for it other than the gimmick of seeing Cassavetes and Reagen. I actually kind of liked Machine Gun McCain which is some schlocky B movie that has both Cassavetes and Gena Rowlands in it. They're only together for a scene though.
>>177170368>>177170393I'm trying to imagine what Rosemarys Baby would look like under Cassavetes. I'm just picturing Peter Falk and Seymore Cassel as Satanists, and the devil would be played by Ben Gazzara.
>>177169896I love Polanski's work but hate him a fucking demonic kike pedo
>>177173029this image got me into film noir all the way back in 2010. The film didn't impress me all that much but that final shot is so good, and the rest of the film is very classic film noir. Nice little throwback image right there.
>>177173029Amusing that one the most iconic images that defines Noir comes from a film that's not on the big league of acclaim and love.
>>177173077Maltese Falcon did it for me and The Big sleep cemented it
>>177173220Big Sleep is one of those I didn't care for the first time but i've seen it like 5 times now and I love it more each time, and even when its over now I just want to pop it right back in and rewatch it. That said The Third Man and Touch of Evil are still my personal favorites.
whats a good Thanksgiving film
>>177173488Planes Trains and Automobiles is really good, as /film/ as an American comedy can be
Can you fuckers get away from your families so we can talk about decades old kinos, Fuck.
>>177173809I'm not doing the first or in the mood for the second
You're not having power fantasies over being a film director right /film/? Without ever actually taking any real steps towards making a film beyond thinking about it?
>>177173995Not true. I've written half a dozen scripts that aren't shit and within the realm of reason, but it literally takes tens of thousands to get started if you'e a nobody who can only finance out of pocket.
>>177174146Literally just get a camera and some people together and shoot, hiding behind "mud budget" is pure cope since the only real cost is getting a camera nowadays with good quality digital being so easily available
>>177173995I'm way past that. Now I have power fantasies about being an already accomplished director who's done making groundbreaking films and now spends his time doing interviews where journalists gush over my work and my opinions as I remain humble in the face of it all and leave behind a legacy as one of the greats.
>>177174236Nobody's going to watch someone's little youtube skit he made with his friends on his dinky digital camera. Those aren't movies.
>>177173995I have seen some quite fine short films on vimeo that have mostly been made by just one person, with a bare bones crew of actors and technicians. I think, or hope, that in the coming decades these people who are now film students or enthusiasts will actually go on making proper full length features
>>177174342It's true. I've made a bunch of short films over the course of several years I put on youtube and they all have less than 16 views.
>>177174342You're already so far off the path without taking even the first step: do you think world class figure skaters just put skates on one day and started jumping triple axels? Did the greatest painters, writers, musicians create their magnum opus their first time picking up a brush/pen/instrument? There is so many thousands of hours of practice (and being embarrassingly bad most likely) behind every virtuoso which you seemingly refuse to do when you won't get off your ass and actually practice the art of film-making beyond fantasizing about it. This is actually the worst part about cinema as an artform, there is no easy way of practicing it like you can with painting or writing etc. with the process being so dependent on other people and taxing. How good would films be if people could practice it at the same ease as other artforms is what I wonder
>>177174497That's where the friends/networking element comes in, you need some people to shill your shorts on twitter and letterboxd and such.
>>177174531>There is so many thousands of hours of practiceAre you even thinking for thirty seconds about the shit that is spewing out of your mouth? Anyone can pick up a digital camera and make pretty pictures with it, if not then it editing, and yes that takes practice and cameras do not cost much money anymore, but how many other people do you think are doing that? Plenty, and let me break it to you sometimes all that practice comes wiith no reward, it happens. Also, on another note, there is more to filmmaking then a camera. Even beyond the basics like sound equipment, lights, rigging equipment, whatever it is, and even if you choose to omit most of these, there is still all the expendables and tiny stuff that comes up. Food, gas, transportation. And if you're trying to be super serious, then insurance, and law fees. This is stuff figure skaters or a musician trying to master a single instrument do not have to deal with. You are the only one that is doing the fantasizing.
>>177174531Practice in this case doesn't even count since making a real movie is completely different
>>177174554My friends don't have any more social capital than I do, you seem very young and idealistic.
>>177173468Big Sleep is so confusing the first time but also comfy, unironically Big Lebowski helped be understand it better
>>177174770Private eye movies for some reason are incredibly comfy. Big Sleep, Big Lebowski, Long Goodbye, and Inherent Vice. I really love all of these and it is mainly because they are just relaxing to watch, and you can just pop it in any time. they all have a unique sort of genre vibe to them.
What about the Robert Mitchum version of The Big Sleep?
>>177174236I thought I was the only one who gives interviews in my head
>>177174928i liked the ending of this one better
>>177174677>but how many other people do you think are doing that? Plenty, and let me break it to you sometimes all that practice comes wiith no reward, it happensSo what? Do you think the fundamental purpose of film-making is to "make it" in the industry or trying to express something of your soul through the artform? What is your point exactly, that because some people put in the practice and recieve no reward and thus practice in and of itself is worthless? The rest of the post is just justifying your lack of agency>sound equipmentpiss cheap nowadays>lightsshoot outside or with existing lights>rigging equipmenttripod, shoulder rig, shopping cart for a dolly if necessary>Food, gas, transportationIf this somehow is prohibiting you from making a film I'm sorry to tell you that you probably never had the chops or the passion for it anyway>And if you're trying to be super serious, then insurance, and law fees.Shoot with your friends and other people at the grassroots level of film-making>This is stuff figure skaters or a musician trying to master a single instrument do not have to deal with.Which is EXACTLY the point I made in my previous post. The fact that making a film is so logistically difficult makes practice even MORE important as you're more accustomed to the process and actually know what you're doing and not wasting everyone's time if you actually have a good setup going
The truly passionate make films on a budget of $100, like Andy Milligan
>>177174688It fundamentally affects your view on the artform and makes your vision of what you want to do clearer which I find is the most important aspect. You really comprehend it on a much deeper level when you actually start to engage in the form instead of just following it as a viewer (which is very useful too but not a substitute for the former)And then just learning the actual process of making a film, if you've ever been on a shoot with a first-time director they will sound like a drooling idiot most of the time because actually expressing all the ins and outs of every single aspect of how you want the film to be is difficult
>>177175052I like the crazy junkie daughter too
Painful to get through, does not respect the poignancy of it shots and moments but instead runs through them as if trying to just convey written information as fast and efficiently as possible to the viewer. Far too literal, why would I not just read the original text instead?
>>177174531>>177174677doesnt matter what equipment you get, if you dont have connections in the media or a rich uncle, you will not get the quality of views you need. if you got any viewers it will just be retards who trash you for sport.
>>177175585>why would I not just read the original text instead?Because it's a different medium, with different capabilities and intentions. Now if you just want the story/plot, often a book is better.Gibson's is superior. Pasolini in general is only okay.
>>177174928I tried watching it because I love Robert Mitchum and I love The Big Sleep. However this was hackneyed and cornball. A waste of a great actor and a waste of great source material.
>>177175104You are clearly in the midst of a manic episode. Please seek help and then I'll be happy to discuss the realities of filmmaking.
>>177175676Well yes my advice is contingent on the jewish faith. You are all my fellow jew brothers right?
>>177175104>What is your point exactly, that because some people put in the practice and recieve no reward and thus practice in and of itself is worthless?Yes. Time is money. If you pursue a dream in filmmaking, you have wasted 5 years where you could have rose the rank in another industry that is open to you.
>>177175776>Because it's a different medium, with different capabilities and intentions. Now if you just want the story/plot, often a book is better.Which is exactly my point, the film never transcends beyond the written material it is based on. Every moment that has the potential for something greater, something truly moving is not allowed to fully realize its potential, it's cut away from to bring in the next set piece to advance the story. It might have worked if he did a film twice as long but now its in the painful middle ground of being both too long and too short
>>177175829If that makes you feel better go ahead, it seems like my posts struck a chord. I do hope you one day get off your ass and actually try to do something instead of just power fantasizing about it on 4chan
>>177175990Easy to be a critic, but how many could actually put together a well made film?
>>177175950Autistic thinking, enjoy being totally miserable at age 48 as a soulless consultant at McKenzie as you realize all the money and "status" you've gained loses all of its meaning because you wasted your youth trying to make "sensible" decisions instead of actually following what truly fulfills you to your very core
>>177176044Not being able to do it yourself does not mean that you can't critisize something i totally could though
>>177176042So you must be a happy and successful filmmaker then? Tell me about your body of work, sir.
>>177176117Haha by then at 48 I will be worth three million dollars, while the struggling artist will have a net worth of fuck all, and some autistic youtube videos with 20 views.
>>177173995I'm way ahead in my imaginary career. At the moment I'm writing my autobiography, describing the brilliancy of latter filmography. My childhood as a sensitive child, far removed from my peers by my high intellect, has had major impact on my humanistic approach to cinema. I hope my book will fully capture it.
>>177176379You are so fundamentally missing the point of everything I am saying that you have to be a teenager or just severely retarded. Or maybe American? I'm very happy with my filmmaking, played at a few festivals in the summerNow please stop projecting and obsessing over success and actually just make a film if the artform is so dear to you, that is literally the sole thing I'm expressing to you and you're shitting your pants with rage. Please take some time to self-reflect and grow from this as a person
Tony Scott is /film/.
I dont understand why the professor disassembled his bombnobody said anything that shouldve stopped him
>>177176814you should rewatch the movie
>>177176709Well the only nice thing I can say on this thanksgiving day is that at the very least you are bumping the thread.
>>177176880not an answer
>>177175776>>177175990>We will never get to watch Dreyer's Jesus filmThat could have been the greatest film of all time. Nonetheless, the next 2 greatest films of all time are also by Dreyer.
>>177165621Um, you got a source to back that up, bucko?
>>177177359>source: trust me bro, i've been watching kino for over 2 months now
>>177176814he had a change of heart
I disliked these. It's just the same as any other poverty and coming-of-age film(s) ever. It's terribly boring, and I couldn't care or invest or emphasize with any of the characters, they all just felt like designated "this is who you should care about" characters, which further made worse by the same rinse-and-repeat shtick of "oh no! family death!". Aggravatingly slow and meandering, and I generally have no issues with slow films, or long ones (which these are not). On a technical level, they are good, but that's it.
>>177177770why? he was right. >red can take his wife and daughter to the zone and still live there >writer can keep being a mopey bitch at his chateau
Was it really that bad?And was it really all it took to ruin United Artists?
>>177173995I made a film. Festivals rejected it. Turns out I didn't mix the sound properly when considering a booming cinema sound system.I now have to comb through the entire film and slowly add subtitles so that I can release the film and move on with my life.
>>177177808it's not bad, but it lacks narrative momentum, i.e it has lots of small scenes with the main characters but it doesnt move forward the "ticking clock" premise and that's very frustrating for a 3 hour epicUA could have easily survived the Heaven's Gate flop (they had a James Bond movie that year), but Transamerica sold them out at the first sign of trouble
>>177168977Reddit hates his guts.
>>177177794I felt them very affecting- movies and characters, quality emotional manipulation by Ray. One after the other can get tiresome tho, I atched each of three a year apart.>>177177808Nowadays the film is much more praised than attacked, which was really a big thing only on release. More euphoric folks even call it the m-word, but I think that's just to compensate the film maudit legend.
>>177178046>Turns out I didn't mix the sound properly when considering a booming cinema sound system.What do you mean? Just loudness problems, or something more intricate?
>>177174677>Anyone can pick up a digital camera and make pretty pictures with itOh no.
>>1771783302 things.The worse offender to me, that's not actually a huge deal, is that a lot of the music faded in and out very suddenly where it should have felt more gradual.The bit that made me cringe in the cinema and that probably had a larger impact on the selection process (though doesn't matter for 99% of anyone who will ever watch it) is that there were some things that were only audible when blasted at full volume and that wouldn't be audible on a tv at normal loudness, or on headphones. This is things like some minor static/warbling and subtle sound effects.I basically learnt the hard way that in a cinema, you can hear EVERYTHING
>>177178553True, it takes a rare talent to make something worthwhile with digital photography
Always wanted to check out this Korean movie after seeing the director's other works, but have only been able to find a short vimeo clip of it.

why do you hate everything
>>177179726>the vatican made an homage to cinema picking films that reflect their religionSo what?
>>177169030Happen to have a MEGA?
>>177179782>Why no Passion of the Christ?The list was compiled in 1995.

>>177179829I'd suggest just torrenting the 1080p one on ytx, its subtitled and highly peered/seeded so it'll only take a very short time to download.
>>177180020Based.A: 10V: 10
>>177179726>In 1995, on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of cinemaThat doesn't make much sense, unless they thought that cinema began with the work of the Lumière brothers in 1895, but there certainly were multiple motion pictures in the few years before that.
>>177180112It was a widespread celebration in 1995. More of a symbolical date than an autistically specific one.
>>177178962This is why I always mix on a variety of speaker/set-ups and then verify the mix on a variety of set ups as well. You do have a 5.1/7.1 set up, right?
>>177180335>You do have a 5.1/7.1 set up, right?Err... about that.... let me get back to you... I've just got such a complicated set up that definitely isn't just a pair of headphones and a usb speaker in my room, so it's hard to explain my full set up.;;
>>177173995I've made 2 features and a mini-series. The first one did well, the other two kinda ruined my career. I'm working on the comeback.
>>177180465Jesus, and you wonder why your mix is shit….Or maybe you don’t. But cmon man, if you’re planning on screening at large/loud set ups, you’ve gotta atleast run it through something bigger to fucking check it out, this is just common senseI’m not even gonna ask about color correction on professional monitors
>>177180485more details? How would they ruin your career?
>>177180485What was the budget level for the features?
>>177180517For the record, I figured that as long as it sounded okay then it would be fine. And I was almost right.If I had known that literally everything would be audible, I could've easily corrected those minor things.But no, I never expected to win an award for sound mixing.And it's funny you mention colour grading. No I didn't have a proeprly calibrated monitor. But the film looked fucking fantastic. I know that sounds arrogant as fuck but if there's one thing I did right (and semi accidentally) it was the cinematography and grading
>>177177807because tarkovsky values feelings over intellectualism
>>177180538>>177180622I say it jokingly but it took me eight years to shoot another one after the second. The first one was very independent, self financed and did relatively well (sold it in a couple of territories, got theatrical in my home country) but I was very young and fucked up with the second. I got a bunch of money a couple of producers and made a shit film. The series was a work for hire that was badly written but I needed the money at the time so I took it. First feature was about 80k the second a little over 600k USD
>>177180669>figured that as long as it sounded okay then it would be finelol>the film looked fucking fantasticoh I bet…
>>177180335ask the guy who thinks you can make it in film by 'practicing hard enough'
>>177180840Self financed an 80k film- damn dude, congratsDon’t see how any of that has ruined a career. Keep going man.
>>177180882You do realize anyone here claiming to be a filmmaker is full of shit right? This is the place for autists and failures.
>>177180948What does it matter if is factual if it speaks Truth? do you even watch films?
>>177180992are you drunk?
>>177180948Then the guy is one dedicated troll, since this is far from the first time he has mentioned his two films here.Or, get this, not everyone here is as pathetic as you.
>>177181036I'm high try getting inspired, dude.
>>177181047>Or, get this, not everyone here is as pathetic as you.Doubt it
>>177180948Very true . these people are giving people here false hope. it's the people like max landis, seligman, chazelle, eggers, safie bros, who break into film, kids born rich to upper class jewish families with PR companies writing articles about them straight out college. an autist on /film/ can try, maybe write a script, direct something, but you will fast learn why. I worked in 10 years in film. I saw some mind blowing independent movies. one film was shot entirely in one take on a long soundstage. they all fall on deaf ears.
>>177180843>oh I bet…Look man, you don't have to believe me but if there's one thing that I left the premiere feeling proud about, it was that.
>>177181191>one film was shot entirely in one take on a long soundstage.Feature length? What was it called?
>>177181191>one film was shot entirely in one take on a long soundstage.What's it called? Curious to check it out.
>>177181191you're just exposing your lack of knowledge and understanding with your post. You never made in filmmaking because you're a lazy fuck and you project your hopelessness to everybody else. I mean you're impressed by eggers and the safdies and one take films, pathetic.
>>177181191This.But if you make the films, nobody can take away the satisfaction of creating art you can stand behind and be proud of (unless you fuck up the sound mix and color correction like that one guy in here)
>>177181302I worked mainly in the camera department and editing. I didn't advance in my career because I'm a schizoid autist with mental illness, but I got to see how the business worked up close.
>>177181302He wasn’t impressed by them- did you read the fucking post or are you both illiterate AND retarded?
>>177181577>camera department AND editinglol, you just shot yourself in the foot by admitting this. Two vastly different fields, if you’re jumping between them that means you’re “working” on no-budget home movie pieces of shit
>>177181572Why are you obsessed with them?
>>177177808Nah the director's cut is one of the great american films.
>>177181750They're my target audience

>>177182116Top 3 films?
>>177182843yeelenali: fear eats the souldjango unchained
>>177182664Eyes Wide Shut is not on the level of those. Its recent reappraisal as a great movie is forced, due the pizzagate meme'ing around it.
>>177183345>Its recent reappraisal as a great movie is forced, due the pizzagate meme'ing around it.>Mulholland Drive LOL

Just rewatched Tokyo Story, during my fall/winter Ozu watching season. This is a really great film that I really really like but I find it the weakest of the Noriko trilogy. Late Spring being the technical masterpiece while Early Summer is the most emotional and tender of the three. The last ten to fifteen minutes of Tokyo Story however have some beautiful insights and some of the best dialogue. I'm pretty excited to move on to the color films since last year I downloaded the remux files of all the color films not released by Criterion except for Equinox Flower and the End of Summer since I found those the weakest of his color films, and did not want to sacrifice 30+ gbs when I already had about 200+ gbs of Ozu films already on my drive and it was getting maxed out. I regret it now, since I might enjoy those two films more seeing the remux versions vs. the criterion dvd copies they slapped together in the box set, which is a nice set don't get me wrong but they each deserve blu-ray releases.
>>177184383>it's the spaghettinegroschizo againGet over yourself, ffs.
>>177185159>I find it the weakest of the Noriko trilogyAgreed. Don’t know why it got picked as the popular one, maybe it’s the easiest for the normies to understand.
>>177185922That is what you look like.
FINE- fuck ALL of you, I’m sick of asking for the remastered first and second seasons, I’ll fucking do the free 7 day trial of Mubi, watch it myself, then cancel the trial. I will NOT rip it and NOT share it with any of you here. FUCK IT!!!
>>177186393No one looks like this.Meds and BBC.
>>177186360I personally think (at least in the last decade or so) the reason is because newer audiences first hear about this film when learning about Ozu and they hear from word of mouth it is his masterpiece and is highly regarded in elite circles. So they watch it as their first Ozu, and I'm sure people like it well enough but 1. it probably remains only one of two or three Ozu films they ever see. And 2. because of the reputation it has they probably just follow the consensus and parrot this as his best film on forums and discussions. Furthermore, the critics of old who voted this film as one of the greatest of all time only had access to so many Ozu films, so they might have missed out on large chunks of his filmography. Distribution and accessibility during older decades was certainly an issue. I honestly think Early Summer or Tokyo Twilight would have the same reputation as Tokyo Story has if those films were just as evenly distributed as Tokyo Story was back in the day.I think for people who love Ozu and consider themselves fans, Tokyo Story is probably not their favorite. As I mentioned earlier I think Early Summer might be my all time favorite of his and I find that one the most emotionally resonant.
>>177186437Von Trier sucks massive dick
>>177186561Maybe they misread the title and think it says “Toy Story” and give it a try

>>177186642agreed, he is the 'only pretending to be retarded' meme
>>177188247I check there every fucking day
Lars is mid tier. Melancholia is his greatest film. Breaking the Waves was good but forgettable. Nymphomaniac is laughable. Sorry haven't seen the rest.
Holy fucking shit- the streaming quality on Mubi is some of the worst shit I’ve ever seen. I cannot believe people actually fucking pay for this garbage.
>>177190177Amazon Prime might be even worse with their shitty UI. Looking for a film on Amazon Prime feels like shopping for toilet paper. And they have three different fucking black lives matters categories filled with shit and mediocrity. Fuck amazon.

Good night, cocsuckers!
Any swimmer-chads here?
>>177192438One of those gems you find totally unexpected, near-masterpiece
>>177192438This movie almost moreso than any other I have seen has a dreamlike quality that is also comfy, I honestly feel like it is one of the best American surrealist films of all time.
>>177192827you say near masterpiece, but I say straight masterpiece. I don't think I can name a single flaw.
>>177192438Better and more human than anything Lynch has done.
>>177177794Yeah, I have no idea what people find in movies. They're not bad, but I have a feeling no one would care about them if they were made in the US rather than India.
Did any Britfags see Julia Holter's score of The Passion of Joan of Arc in Huddersfield on Wednesday (Or are going to the London showing tonight)? It was superb.
>The Fabelmans — a warm, fuzzy quasi-memoir — sentimentalizes things Spielberg never before dared confront but for which he had previously found perfect, powerful, mythic analogies: the meek father and brash, immodest mother of The Sugarland Express; the isolated father of Close Encounters; the guilt-ridden father of Hook; the keys-bearing surrogate father and frantic mother of E.T.; the family at-sea in Poltergeist; the unknowable father, unfaithful mother, and wayward son of Catch Me If You Can. We already know Spielberg better than he knows himself.>Now serving with a new light hand in The Fabelmans — without his usual dynamic swing and volleys — Spielberg leaves explication of his family story to be translated in a collaboration with Tony Kushner, the playwright whose most affecting domestic drama was the race-and-ethnicity centered Caroline, or Change, the musical Spielberg should have filmed instead of remaking West Side Story. But a soft-touch Spielberg is not Spielberg in full artistic mode. That’s why The Fabelmans seems to hedge its dramatic risks, as if muting the heartache and thousand natural shocks that marriage and adulthood are heir to, then trading that guilty consciousness for facile teasing about Spielberg’s career and professional legend.
>>177196586>Yet there are also two great images in The Fabelmans. The first occurs when Spielberg idealizes his initial exposure to movies. Little Sammy (played by Mateo Zoryon Francis-DeFord) dreads his parents taking him to see Cecil B. DeMille’s Greatest Show on Earth (1952), but his fear turns to excitement at DeMille’s climactic train wreck. Sammy gets inspired to make 8mm versions of the spectacle, using the Lionel train gifts he receives at Hanukkah. This Eight Trains of Hanukkah montage intermixes Jewish culture with the quick-change visual wit that distinguishes Spielberg’s craft. It’s the film’s most ethnic sequence, and it has a spiritual climax when the flickering toy-train images are projected onto the palms of Sammy’s hands. His wide, blue-eyed fascination perfectly recalls the Mecha David in A.I. Behold: the miracle of cinema art and technology.>That awesome image is nearly matched in its surreality when the mother Mitzi (Michelle Williams) drives Sammy and his three sisters to witness an actual tornado. Mitzi’s recklessness is not necessarily an inherited trait; instead, she explains that Sammy has started making movies because “he needs to control things.” But the tornado excursion shows us something else: Sammy is enthralled when ordinary objects — a train of supermarket shopping carts — are loosed from their commonplace function and take on an otherworldly life of their own. Think of Spielberg producing Twister (1996). Then remember how mundane Americana seemed enchanted in Close Encounters.
>>177196586>>177196598Based Armond making me pretty interested in checking out Spielberg in 2022, his last special film being more than 20 years ago.
>>177195054Yeah, I guess it's just the stereotypical circle-jerk of criterion, directors, and foreign films.
>>177196586>Todd Field, the Eyes Wide Shut actor turned director, specializes in movies you never want to see again — In the Bedroom, Little Children — where characters go through ugly high drama redolent of contemporary social anxiety but never so specific as to be fully recognizable. It’s usually just some hammy, broken-family psychosis. So when Cate Blanchett, the phoniest actress since Meryl Steep, teams up with Field in his latest film, Tár, the result is a histrionic wingding.kekspot on

Tsai's latest Walker film is titled 'Where' and it's 91 minutes long. There is now until the end of the year an exhibition of Tsai's work at the Centre Pompidou in Paris, where the new film is also shown. It stars both Lee Kang-sheng and Anong Houngheuangsy.https://www.centrepompidou.fr/en/magazine/article/tsai-ming-liang-infatigable-arpenteur-du-cinema

Why would anyone do this? You buy one film, you’re already getting them all.
>>177205391In another place is his best movie because of the sexy white lady who masterbates to cum tissues but it is also shite
>>177205391Remember I watched a remux of one of his most recent films (don’t remember which)- while I respect his desire to shoot with cheap cameras, the quality of the footage was fucking horrendous. And not in a cool lo-fi way, there was just ugly noise everywhere, contrast was disgusting, etc. That typical “cheap digital” look. If it didn’t have his name attached, there’s no way it would pass as releasable.
>>177201516I fantasize about her reproductive organs
>>177197259>everything Kubrick touches is the goat film of all time!!! Minority Report is the far better film. Spielberg trying to be important has always been cringy as fuck.
>>177206097A.I. is a good as it precisely because it's more Spielbergian than Kubrickian. It needed his more emotional perspective to that story. And Minority Report is also excellent, that was a another golden period for the man.
what are the hot redhead actresses, I'm doing AI art actresses x spice and wolf
>>177206565hollywood notoriously hates redheads. They' mess with audience's heads. Same reason why only plain looking flat chested girls make it. Guys want to fuck them, and girls despise them with jealousy. If you want red heads you need to stay on BBC interracial videos the natural haven for red head girls.

You get raped by the Belgians, and now you get raped by us Chinese, it's just what you do, you're a slave class and nothing will change that.
