New film thread?
Watched tthis last week pretty depressing
Also Juliet Binoche is probably my favorite actress
Oh well that´s an explanation right there. Ivan´s Childhood is undoubtedly better since Tarkowski made it obviously.
I don't think this is Teshigara's best film but it's pretty good
Yeah we've watched some good films
I Saw the Devil
Colossus, The Forbin Project
Joint Security Area
One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
Personal favs, love it or hate it:
I <3 Huckabees
Let the Right One In
It is of course fucking nazi propaganda made by an idiot half jew, but it is still a classic.
I never said he was. I don´t think there is such a thing as best director ever. But all of his films are exceptionally good.
A really great movie.
What about Mikhail Kalatozov? Soy Cuba is so great
I really liked the soundtrack in this one
True, Elena is very good. I haven´t seen Ida, but it would have been a political statement if Leviathan would have won. So I´m glad it didn´t, because politics shouldn´t have anything to do with art.
I watched the holy mountain the other day I haven't quite decided whether I like it or not yet. Very strange/interesting director though. I thought that Lynch made Dune?
I suppose it would have been a little bit, but I do think it was certainly worthy. I was annoyed that Winter Sleep and Mommy weren't nominated
This one is for me the best Welles movie, because it got me into arthouse.
I´ve got to watch Winter Sleep
Yeah, Dead Man is great. Despite what the dead fucker Ebert said.
That seems like it would have been an interesting film. I'll look into the documentary too.
Generally I like his reviews but sometimes I think he's dead wrong
I don't actually like Lars Von Trier ( I do kind of like Joachim Trier). I sort of feel like he sort of bastardizes Tarkovsky's style. Though I do like some of his films like Dogville.
Only means the truth in that statement is pending fruition...
I guarantee it
Watch this on any kind of drug, or not, it's a great fucking movie either way. Great fucking cinematography too.
Why does /b/ hate it so much? I liked it too
I don´t know. I don´t think there is a single Lars von Trier film I don´t like.
Well, I probably will enjoy Synecdoche from what i have gathered about it. What´s wrong with that?
I have to admit, i don´t care for italian neorealism that much. Not even Vitorio de Sica.
I've yet to see a Polanski film I haven't liked so I might haha
It's okay, I like post-war movies.
Why is this one considered so good? It was probably a big achievement back then, but now i find many of the scenes cringeworthy. Then again, i do speak russian.
Yes. This one is very good. Doesn´t get posted so often.
I am sure your pseudo-intelect will be triggered and you will completely negate the fact that the film bored you into submission and you will perceive this defeat as an art and time you png to understand
I actually didn't like this Bergman film I'm just posting to see what people think. I was pretty confused haha
I've been pretty disappointed with Malick's later work but this was still great
Yeah well the cinematography is probably good, but the acting does make me puke sometimes and the fucking music. But I have watched many soviet movies in my time, so it may be on account of this.
I´ve seen this one, but I have completely forgotten what it is about.
Visually this film is near perfect
I would rather chop off my cock and balls and wear a diaper full of salt than watch any of these films
Hell if I know what "Hour of the Wolf" is about. But some of them surely are, as you say, for example "The Silence".
I don´t think there are any good russian directors right now and I can´t really recommend something beyond Tarkovsky or Zvyagintsev. You could check out Sokurov or Aleksei German, but if you already have I am afraid the rest is pure shit.
He was being artistic and jodorowsky-esque
You wouldn't understand pleb, it's above you
I haven't actually seen much of Bergman's later films so maybe thats it.
I haven't seen either yet but I hear Burnt by the Sun and Moscow does not believe in Tears are both good
I mean you gotta give it to the Hollywood lovers on this one
In my opinion the Coen Brothers are the best hollywood directors right now
Pretty decent film.
The director of Burnt by the Sun is the single biggest asshole ever to live in shit that is Russia besides Stalin and Putin and I don´t think his films hold up to the ones I listed. "Moscow does not believe in Tears" is soviet crap, which i am very much sick of, but maybe you´d like it. But there are way better movies out there.
Sorry to hear that m8, but not really
Besides what´s already been mentioned the likes of Eisenstein and Pudowkin not really. Aleksei German is kind of soviet even though his films are pure arthouse.
Kek you are a fucking idiot.
Yeah, old movies are good aswell but they are only posting them on 4chan to look sophisticated.
There is a reason movies doesnt look the same nowdays or the actors act the same as they did 50 years ago.
Right. I appreciate old movies if they are well written and directed but I hate how some just live in the past. I enjoy newer films a lot more because I find it amazing how much more can be done in the production
Or you know we're posting them because we liked them and are interested in discussing them with people.
Also I'm not quite sure what you're talking about since most of the films in this thread were probably made after 1990
You sir are all right by me.
You as well friend. I'm hoping to at the end of my career end up as a Hollywood producer. It's a long process but I'm working my way up through a lot of film editing type jobs and connections.
It is not the time period that is in question, it is the utter non-sense that these films have a depth that is only perceived by the fags who follow the blind fag follower in front of them. Mondrian much?
You don´t really know how movies are made, do you? There are very few movies as good as this. And I don´t think modern films are shit. I liked Birdman along many other films this year. I enjoy Nolans films or good superhero movies.
What does everyone think of Xavier Dolan. Mommy was good but I thought Laurence Anyway and Heartbeats were kind of mediocre films
Anybody see this new one? Pretty good but a bit of a change of pace from the usual stuff nowadays. Gave off a bit of a Tarantino feel when it came to camera work
What are you trying to communicate here, mate? That you are smarter than others since you can´t take your time and analyse a movie or appreciate it for its complexity?
Nope it was out in LA for a few weeks a while back. They have some memorable scenes but overall I don't think they're that great. It feels pretty obvious that someone as young as Dolan (he is older than me though haha) is writing them.
It's one of the most all encompassing films I've ever seen. It literally goes through every emotional situation we deal with in our lives. It pulled more emotion out of me than any film I've seen. It's infuriating and hilarious. Kaufman refuses to put anything on camera that isn't 100% realist, other than when he decides to veer off in to his artsy moments
It's "substance" is created by an over exaggerated falsehood of daily life for starters. The plot is that of piece of a small piece of shit spinning around the bowl, teasing the viewer of some sensible climax that never properly delivers
Im not the one you asked but...
The pacing of the movie, the sound, the music everything goes together perfectly.
The acting is superb and there is not a single bad actor in that movie.
And then there is the haunting story of the man trying to live up to his own expectations of him self mixed with kaufmans wierd style.
perfect film coming through
Not Jeff but I thought it was a decent movie. I think Alexander Payne's best film was election
All you just said is your own opinion it does not explain why this film is supposed to be objectively bad. And I don´t think that this "an over exaggerated falsehood of daily life" is a bad thing in art at all, since it would be really bland if all art would do was reflecting our daily lives in all their blandness.
That was at least what they were going for. Either that or they ran out of money for color. But I appreciate the fact they wanted to try a new thing for a pretty popular movie. And that clearly won the Academy over
This one was almost complete bullshit.
The movie tries to be something is isnt the black and white filter on the movie just makes it bad they wanna be this emotional artistic indie movie but rather make it parody.
I might have liked it if it wasnt in black and white but now it was and that made it look like they were trying to hard to make it "artsy" instead of just making a good movie.
This is a great film, unfortunately not many people have heard of it
Heres the list of the movies im about to watch
Wings of desire
The theory of everything
Bohachi Bushido: Code Of The Forgotten Eight
The Great Escape (1963)
Once Upon A Time In Anatolia
I think they should've done this film in black and white
No this is a classic heist movie
Does this count as a heist film?
I like this one.
>lol I'm still talking modern though
What does everyone think of Michael Haneke? Or Juliet Binoche?
Gonna throw some Korean shit up in this thread.
Yes, we are living in a time of "own views" and "great individualities". "Dare to Think for Yourself". It´s Kant. Your views aren´t new or edgy or groundbreaking and you are just aother voice in the crowd influenced by others and bound by the rules of the social discourse as well as the others.
GUYS GREATEST MOVIE IN THE WORLD 10/10 WOULD NICHOLAS CAGE AGAIN
Cache and Amour are probably the only films of his that I really like but I think everything else is pretty decent. I know right she's a great actress and she's still gorgeous in her fifties
INB4 this overrated thing... I just don't understand why all these choker wearing, cigarette smoking, tumblr white girls gravitate to it
I think there was a discussion about him in the last thread. I think most people said they like his early stuff and hate the new. I still recommend goodbye to language though since the 3d stuff hasn't ever been done before
Mmm yes I am quite sophisticated after sitting down and watching this cinematic masterpiece. Chiodo did a beautiful job intertwining both klowns and space into something the whole family can enjoy.
idk man, i like all godard. i think he peaked in the 60s but i love carmen, notre musique, and some others.
Jeff is also being a kind soul and dumping some movie wallpapers
You do realize the paradox of your claims right?
You definitely need a proper understanding of Kant and subjective idealism before you make a fool of yourself in public. I suppose anonymity works in your favor in this regard
i'd say his shit is still groundbreaking in some way, if inconsistent. some of his plotless works are more interesting to study and it's kinda cool because they're obscure to the point of where you never know if it'll be a hidden gem (Prenom Carmen) or shit (Film socialisme)
Alright guys here is my last one. If this isn't a beautiful film I don't know what is
lovely film, haven't seen it in a while but fun to interpret and talk about and excellent cinematography. not as interesting as some other though.
It's probably my least favorite Tarantino
>But this on the other hand was gold
eh i mean godard's not for everyone, no reason to go into his late shit if you hate most of it. this one's alright too.
Not really, no. Care to enlighten me? I have no fear of making a fool of myself in public, because it normally doesn´t happen but it would be only logical that you do, since you bring it up. And I don´t think that you understand Kant or subjective realism.
