In Memoriam: Giuseppe Rotunno, ASC, AIC (1923-2021) https://theasc.com/news/in-memoriam-giuseppe-rotunno-asc-aic-1923-2021 >Of course, because we were shooting in Technirama in 1962, the lens was not so fast, and we needed a great deal of light. The candles were basically props; my light was over the chandelier. I made a wooden crown on the chain between the chandelier and the ceiling, and I reproduced the candlelight exactly. I put some light in the foreground for close-ups, but with three cameras, it was almost impossible to light [ anywhere but from above] — we had mirrors everywhere, and there was practically no corner of the set that was out of the shot. All of our lights were on dimmers, and we used as little light as possible, because it was really, really warm; it was summertime, and we had all of these people enclosed in various rooms with candles. As we moved from one camera to the next, I got many drops of wax on my neck, and so did Visconti. I had trained the whole crew for days to put out the candles when the scene stopped. There were a thousand candles, so everybody had his section, including me. I felt like a priest in a church!
Is there any Marguerite Duras film that's not talky? "Wordy" is probably a better descriptor because her scripts tend to be one long narration, never a fast-paced back and forth between characters. She approaches films like she's writing a novel. You could say that's her style but I don't think raw literature works well when dumped into a visual medium. The images are a distraction. There's good reason no one else does this. If you do not speak French, it's hard to enjoy 90 minutes of intensive subtitle reading. In most cases I'm skeptical her writing is even worth the trouble.

Webrips have gotten very common lately, but I'm curious why the streaming sites often include thick black borders on the video? Is this a result of batch processing many different films at once? They would save bandwidth and/or improve quality if the files were properly cropped.

A year later the man would go on to win the once-coveted Venice Golden Lion (formerly Coppa Mussolini) with Hana-Bi aka Fireworks, competing against rivals like Yimou Zhang's Keep Cool, Pedro Costa's Ossos and the russian gem The Thief. The movie itself is gluttonous for misery, a sure-fire catnip recipe when the jury is composed of women, and the dramatic score for strings gives an elegant and poignant accent to all the mishaps and event successions around the personal life of a beat cop, interpreted by no other than the director, again. The mix of dry and absurd humor coming once in a while is a much appreciated aspect that i found to be a little lost recently, especially from movies where everyone is dragging themselves in an emotional swamp plus the precise allocation of such segments gives places to a strong contrast effect when the movie is about to drop someone. And speaking of misery and prizes, Kitano wanted to go at it again in 2002 and made a little shining gem called Dolls, a cinematographer-driven film about lovelessness in different japanese social groups such as salarymen, yakuza and otaku men, along with trying to visually and ideologically explain the meaning and appeal behind the old japanese puppet theater; such attempt done in a successful way in my opinion. The score is subdued but pretty dramatic at one point, its titular theme being the juicy cherry of the mix with the inclusion of the old familiar percussion from previous projects. The film was entered into its respective Venice Film Festival edition and faced stiff melancholic competition like Chang-Dong Lee's Oasis, Konchalovsky's House of Fools and bleeding edge The Magdalene Sisters by Marx Engels Mullan. The latter being a woman-beating hellhouse story it became a hit among the female jury, which did not forgive and gave the edge in the split decision. Obviously this is not or shouldn't be about the prizes nor immediate recognition, i just found the clear trends behind jury decisions funny like Del Toro convincing the Netflix-involved jury members to vote for his friend and co-producer Cuaron ...Yeah anyways hope these weren't a big camp, here's a couple of links if someone fancies them the ∞/film/ moniker is from back then, not a slap on anyone here >A Scene at the Sea https://mega.nz/#!GI4SGCSJ!1J8f4XPi_U38yptZw7zYWoRghxsoepmFZse1YyYQjGw >Sonatine https://mega.nz/#!3EwiBQCb!Yl0LRlJSbSz5hQ8dtEF8zO9OoUNNkAVAp1xqrjjqfZU >Kids Return https://mega.nz/#!aU4ElIhY!1FT0D_8IloUk7Isl5J6VIB8OmZ14rdh6bB-BoNYP_Sg >Hana-Bi https://mega.nz/#!yQ5UEQ6B!UDWIxmKkf8qXaeZnRbm_eij-y5lHu02aPWqBW2-uKfI >Dolls https://mega.nz/#!WUwmgCKD!18V5QOL4ndh_6dxqPb98oJyF6jDDigLelOxfwXwnkSw

I wish there was a complete soundtrack to La Fille aux yeux d'or (1961). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z01Y-ENKsB8 The only release was a French 7" that I can't find anywhere except youtube. I think there's more than the 2 tracks worth of music, so the only good option is to cut audio from the film itself.

This is a strange request but it's been haunting me because I had the video in my hands and I didn't download it in time before they took it down for uuuhhh... political reasons? I guess Benigni angered alot of religious people by giving a speech about sex in the bible (most of the Italian populus is religious) The entire thing was displayed in HD on the RaiPlay website, 30+ minutes, and I think they took it down after a day or two. This was back in February so I was hoping someone had archived the thing or downloaded the upload. The only evidence there is of the upload is the dead link and this MSN website (pic related) that linked directly to the RaiPlay upload, it even shows the original length. www.raiplay.it/iframe/video/2020/02/sanremo-2020-roberto-benigni-il-cantico-dei-cantici-99002db8-7f1c-4266-88d6-489da47261a0.html

This week I've been watching American animation from the early sound era. Although I like the "rubber hose" aesthetic, most of the shorts are not very impressive. It's best to stick to the well-known material from this period or you'll be disappointed. I did enjoy this short from Ub Iwerks depicting a bizarre cloud city where every person, plant, object is a balloon. Balloon Land (1935) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ebheRwzy8_Q For contrast here's a much weaker effort from Ub, only interesting because of mildly offensive racial caricature. I'm surprised this seems to be the only animated version of Little Black Sambo and it doesn't even follow the original story. Little Black Sambo (1935) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1T_60wazTsk

Bimbo's Initiation shows a secret society pressuring Bimbo the Dog to join them. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=48Ka0xvim3c >The "darkest" of all is the Talkartoon Bimbo's Initiation, which Leslie Cabarga has accurately described as "a bad dream," in which Bimbo is pursued through an underground maze by bouncing, hooded figures who ask menacingly, "Wanna be a member? Wanna be a member?" When Bimbo says no, he finds himself in one harrowing predicament after another, caught in a nightmarish world from which he cannot escape. This unsettling cartoon depicts the adult theme of a struggle for personal autonomy within The System. I happened to find a cockney's video analysis highlighting a long list of other subliminal (often sexual) aspects of the short. I wonder if you guys think there's merit to what he says. I'm too much of an empiricist to fully invest in unverifiable psychological assertions, but it's entertaining to hear his perspective regardless. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dIVO-XCuDGc

>>1234 Thanks! Something else to add to my bucket list to learn about. :^)
Mario Monicelli's La grande guerra (The Great War) stars Vittorio Gassman and Alberto Sordi as a couple of slacker Italians recruits fighting the Austrian army in the muddy trenches of WWI. Although this film is a consensus classic with impressive battles scenes and a uniquely inspiring ending, I was never fully engaged with La grande guerra. The story is episodic without a strong through-line, so it's not always clear if events are fleeting diversions or the building blocks of something important. I suppose the different episodes are a way to explore the characters, nonetheless I think some of the filler should have been cut. The film was rather long and sometimes felt rudderless.
When a woman ascends the stairs (1960) Complex and bleak film about a bar hostess who really shouldn't be a bar hostess. Basically she starts out the movie with possibilities, hesitates over them then discovers they are a poison chalice or fraudulent, she desperately tries something as she runs out of time and ends the movie with no possibilities. I think maybe the director thought the bar hostess scene was awful. Other than that you get some of the best use of location based story-telling I've seen in a long time, great acting and a well worked theme about appearances. I thought about it for a week after watching it so there's definitely some substance here. Love Exposure (2008) I've meant to watch this one for years but the runtime put me off. It was great. You get the novel pacing/editing/character/plot decisions and high concept playful genius that the best of Japanese media seems to have. I mean you have a cult called the church of zero, their logo is a 0 with a crucifix over it and their interaction with the main character is to try to prevent him from getting an erection when presented with a view of his love interests panty clad crotch. Similarly if you ever heard someone pretentiously explain that a camera is voyeuristic you'll probably get a kick out of half the movie being about voyeuristic panty shots, including a guy telling people that their eyes are like cameras, cameras to take panty shots with. Anyway, I just wanted to say the 4hours is not that bad and I probably should've watched it years ago.

Roar This is the second time I have seen this movie, I may have posted about it here before, and it is still not something I can watch or analyze rationally. If that sounds strange, I'll tell you a little about the production and you'll get the idea. Roar was made by delusional hollywood liberals. It may, in fact, be the ultimate delusional liberal movie. So delusional that the director, a wealthy executive producer whose latest success was The Exorcist of all films, believed mankind could live in harmony with lions and sought to prove this by filming a family-friendly comedy using SEVENTY ONE UNTRAINED LIONS, MANY OF THEM MALE, and HIS OWN FAMILY AS ACTORS. This went about as well as you'd expect: production lasted over eleven years, over a hundred people were injured (many of them on-screen), the lions were on edge from having too many males in one place and being surrounded by other untrained big cats, the film bombed, and Tippi Hedren divorced the director afterwards. Watching Roar is like watching them haul the steamship uphill in Fitzcarraldo, except that scene is the entire movie and the cast is constantly taking real injuries. Even though you know it doesn't happen, there's still a real, overpowering sense that the ropes could snap at any moment, that the lion biting Tippi Hedren's head (which scratched her skull and sent her to the hospital for several weeks) could bite just a little harder and kill her. Roar awakens a sort of primal terror and hyper-alertness in me. My filmfag brain shuts off and I watch the lions like a hawk, waiting for the slightest cue they'll attack or try something playful. They frequently break out in fights, drag in dead animals, or chew on the cast. The cast (except for the director) is in constant terror of them. Reportedly they often screamed in pain the moment a take ended. You see them injured seriously on screen, repeatedly, in scenes played off as heart-warming or funny. This is the scariest movie I have ever seen, the director and his character is an weirdly vindictive madman who steals, cheats, and literally throws his own family to the lions for his mad utopian dream, and it's trying to play itself off as a family comedy. Would I recommend this? Maybe. It's an experience, something you dig up on Youtube and share with friends who think you're exaggerating. It may be the best accidental horror film ever made and the cinematographer manages some nuts shots considering he's surrounded by lions and gets scalped by one.

Iranian Cinema Anonymous 09/01/2020 (Tue) 15:17:57 No.366 [Reply]
[JW05 ~ 05/10/2020] Iranian cinema warrants its own thread as the style of them and their directors are distinct enough to stand out and level up with Europeans. The 5 movies here are classics or well-known to start with. The Death of Yazdgerd recalls the kangaroo court upon a family of accusing the refuging last shah of the Sassanian dynasty. Where Is the Friend's Home details a child trying to give his friend his homework he took on accident lest his friend be expelled. Atom Heart Mother is some paranormal mystery thriller during the recession I didn't have subtitles for it. Ballad of Tara is about a women giving away her grandfather's possessions to her village as she can't keep them but finds no one who will accept his shamshir. The Night Bus is about an Iranian prisoner convoy of Arab POWs in 1983 during the Iran-Iraq War.

It has that unmistakable classy 80s look that elevates it above the rest. https://www.invidio.us/channel/UC4gF7P8JKlJ9xAz8MF6AhFw/videos https://www.invidio.us/user/xinistri/videos Egypt: Beyond the Pyramids (4 episodes; 2001) – somewhat similar to Romer’s; not as in-depth or classy but still an enjoyable watch. https://www.dailymotion.com/search/Egypt%3A%20Beyond%20the%20Pyramids The Robot, The Dentist and the Pyramid (1 episode; 2020) – an excellent amateur documentary about the latest attempt to explore the shaft of the Great Pyramid. https://www.invidio.us/watch?v=rhsddHgybTo Immortal Egypt (4 episodes; 2016) – despite being modern and hosted by a wommyn, it surprisingly manages to somehow avoid the current year pozz and is very much watchable. Probably the best HD series on the matter.

THE RISE OF A WORLD WITHOUT MEANING A preview of the new 8-hour Adam Curtis project that drops Feb 11 Curtis usually has an interesting take on things, although despite his unorthodox framing of many topics, his underlying worldview is frustratingly conventional. https://www.newyorker.com/news/letter-from-the-uk/adam-curtis-explains-it-all https://archive.is/CbDDL This article pulls back the curtain on his creative process, explaining some of his methods for unearthing all those wonderful archival nuggets and arranging them into a sublime montage with music and ideas. >At the BBC’s main archive, in Perivale, which contains sixty miles of shelves, Curtis doesn’t just order up news items about the Mau Mau uprising, in British-ruled Kenya, but entire nightly bulletins or anything else shot in the region during the same period. He seeks out odd keywords, uncatalogued films. He craves the unseen. “I don’t know if you play computer games. But it’s like going up a level,” he told me. “There’s the stuff that everyone can get at. Then the stuff that hasn’t been digitized or anything, which is still on film, which I can get. Then, beyond that, there are really strange tapes.” >At one point while we were talking, Curtis left the kitchen and returned with a cardboard box containing fourteen hard drives of everything shot by BBC film crews in Russia since the sixties. Not the finished news stories—the rushes. “That’s everything from the Russia bureau for the last fifty years,” Curtis said. “Thousands and thousands and thousands of hours of unedited material.” Where does he think we are headed? >He wants to show how most contemporary societies have given up on unifying narratives, with the result that we are all compulsively disoriented and anxious, managed and overseen by our latter-day imperial administrators in big tech and high finance. Toward the end of the series, Curtis indicates that he thinks that there are two ways we can go from here. One he associates with the work of B. F. Skinner, the behavioral psychologist, who asserted the principle of reinforcement—continual shocks and positive inducements; likes, shares, nudges, and surveillance—as a way of controlling twenty-first-century societies. “China’s already started, and we’ve sort of started,” Curtis said. “You manage people as a mass, by monitoring their behavior, anticipating their needs—because the data, the patterns, time and propinquity can predict what you want.”

Le scandale Clouzot (2017) A French TV documentary about the career of one my favorite directors, Henri-Georges Clouzot. His persistent ailments as a young man profoundly affected him. He wasn't sure he'd survive and he felt helpless to change his fate. This mindset carried into Clouzot's scripts with characters experiencing body terror, loss of control, and a sense of impending doom. Clouzot began his career working for the Vichy government's Continental Films. After the war he was blacklisted until 1947, even though his previous film Le corbeau was an obvious attack on the snitch culture of the occupation. (It's surprising how the French enthusiastically ratted out their fellow citizens even while their country was ruled a foreign power. The occupation authorities were deluged with more letters than they could possibly read.) This documentary glosses over Clouzot's later life, probably because another documentary L'enfer d'Henri-Georges Clouzot covered that period in detail. I would have liked to see more about Clouzot's reaction to the New Wave and his critics within it, as well as his dazzling final film La prisonnière (which is completely ignored here).

The film about their independence is probably inflated by nationalistic pride. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt5510934/ https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0383177/ I would like to see this one https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0374812/ Lalsalu AKA Tree Without Roots (2002) <In this tragic-comic study of religious hypocrisy, a disreputable cleric convinces villagers that their community is home to a famous holyman's grave.
>>593 Havent seen the first one.But Aguner Poroshmoni isnt good and I wouldnt recommend it.The same guy Directed Ghetuputro Komola which is a better made film.Havent seen the last one fully but the book is very well regarded.There hasnt been a better Director than Tareque Masud so after his accidental Death there hasnt been that many good films made.In recent memmory Kingdom of Claysubjects was a pretty decent film.There was also a good Mystery flick named Aynabazi.Bangladeshi films Has been a hit and miss for me.Although not Bangladeshi I would recommend Ritwik Kumar Ghataks(he was born in bangladesh) films.Recently Critereon released The Cloud Capped Sky.I am not Sure if I would call bangladeshi Film industry to be an emerging film industry.Its been there forever Growing and stagnating.Some would Say it doesnt have its old glorious days(commercial cinema).After Decades of stagnation films like Aynabazi seems to grow a local interest in films though.So I would probably not be calling it an "emerging" film industry.
>>593 Reminds me of Turkey, they always inflate their ratings as it was a popularity contest. Cannot trust anything from there, not even N. Ceylan's works.

I don't remember that being relevant to the film at all, but perhaps there's a subtext that I completely missed. >If Alfred Hitchcock had been Egyptian and bisexual, and had himself played Norman Bates, Psycho might have been something like this.

Thanks, I hate it. Anonymous 01/20/2021 (Wed) 18:33:10 No.1288 [Reply]
>Periodically attack the infinite backlog >Consult the spirits >They shit in my mouth For some reason, this was in the back of my mind as a highly rated movie to watch at some point. I read no review, no synopses, save maybe hearing it praised in passing some time around it's release. I got up to the part where the venal harlot begins openly cucking the soy-boy puppet man with his hippie retard pseudo-tranny gf and turned it off, because after being suckered in by the quirky aesthetic and the neat scene dressing like the tiny office, I found all the characters intensely detestable. Not even in a way that was pleasant to watch. Their personalities excite in me a deep gut-feeling of revulsion and hatred. I'm not qualified to be a puritan, but this is definitively a steaming degenerate Hollywood turd, and it has Jewish names all over it. -1000000/10, I hope every name associated with this production is hunted down and fed feet first into an autoclave. Feel free to regale me with tales of movies that you had the impression were rated highly, but turned out to have emanated from a diseased post-op axe-wound.

>>1288 It's one of those "avant garde" 90s pieces where you're supposed to hate the characters, and enjoy hating them. King of the Hill is also written in the same way. It's highly jewish, but that's their sense of "humor." They love cringepuppets.

>>1431 I love Hank tho
>>1431 >>1432 >tfw jews try to make whites detestable, and fail miserably because we're such kind people. yeah, i like Hank too.
>>1431 >King of the Hill is also written in the same way. I don't see it that way other than Hank who is legitimately a shitty person for grilling meat with gas, the rest are also flawed but have redeeming values at the end. The injun is a societal scumbag but one that does support, morally speaking, anyone in his community for nothing in return. The chink/laos monkey is a total asshole of a person but a model citizen in all the technical stuff. Boomhauer is an unintelligible guy who seemingly does nothing all day (until the ending showed his true profession) but is level-headed and pro-active in the betterment of society with small actions. Granpa is also a shit dude, bordering the psychopath label, but one who risked his neck to help the country in need (for ZOG but he didn't knew that) It's a balance and most characters were written that way, whoever thinks they were written to be hated are simply shallow.
>>1431 >king of the hill >It's one of those "avant garde" 90s pieces where you're supposed to hate the characters, and enjoy hating them. I'm not sure, I see what you mean but I did not even grow up with this crap and I didn't really hate the characters kind of like a milder more boring version B&B, I didn't hate the characters there either, they're genuinely funny. It's just shallow eccentric ridicule humor for kicks, with a touch of what you said, but still it's broadly way more innocent than say family goy or american dad or simp-sons or other sewer trash the kikes pump out these days.
