>>133658076I finally watched Hunt for the Wilderpeople. And wow. What a film. Going through a horrible break up at the moment and it both completely transported me into a different world for a while and had me belly laughing. The story was touching and slightly magic without being cutesy and sentimental. The actor who played Ricky was just fantastic. I'm going to watch Jojo Rabbit this week and I've already watched What We Do In The Shadows but if anyone has any other Taika Waititi recommendations (or anything else which is similar), let me know!

>>133658825Yes. He was supposed to do 150 minute film in Russia about Dumas too, also 4 Storms and 2 Babies, that Bosch film, Food for Love (DiV sequel, there is a video on youtube of him pitching the film to Russian investors). That Eisenstein trilogy he wanted to do, the second one would be in Hollywood. He really has had a bad luck this decade.

>>133660372eh, I see it as an easily coopted premise. not that it would have the same Greenaway flourishes, but one that can translate to mainstream audiences much more than his other pitches. I wonder if his daughter will take the mantle and film some of his discarded ideas (or those that he published) when she comes more of age as a filmmaker.

>>133661255I speak three languages and watch films in those languages without subtitles. films in languages foreign to me, I don't mind subtitles. much better than overdubbing.

>>133661572eng, spa, ita. I get the basic gist of Portuguese, too, if spoken slowly. had a Brazilian gf and port is basically a spa dialect with pretense.

Maybe Gallo doesn't want to release his movie because he thinks it's bad.I mean hell after two great films (one acclaimed by the masses and the other acclaimed by the patricians) I think he would feel more comfortable calling that a career.

>>133661655This guy is pretty bluepilled. He doesn't even realize that the film is globoschlomo agitprop and therefore thinks Phillips doesn't stand for anything

>>133657576>watching Il SorpassoFucking amazing movie. What happened to italian comedies?

I recently saw Veronika Voss and Lola and while they were entertaining enough did not really blow me away. Dare I say Fassbinder is, ahem, overrated or is my general knowledge about Weimer- and WWII-era Germany too limited to truly appreciate what he was going for in those films?

>>133662866Those two films are decent but he has much better ones.

>>133663041Yeah, I hear Berlin Alexanderplatz and Ali are the ones to look out for.

>>133659800>Wojciech HasIn a league of his own when it comes to intertwining stories. A master of the surreal and fantastical. My favourite of his is probably Hourglass Sanatorium, resonates a lot. The Noose another one I really really like, absolute honesty when it comes to depicting the inner turmoil of alcoholism. Saragossa Manuscript probably his most known, also very good. Absolutely worth a watch. The Tribulations of Balthazar Kober, a must watch, like listening to a masterful storyteller, the film waxes a world exactly like you would imagine it when hearing it first hand. Like seeing the pictures conjured from your mind reflected on the screen. If you're thinking about trying Has, go with these four films as an introduction.

Does /film/ have any borders as to whether a film gets too experimental, or artsy or whatever the fuck. In my book you don't get points for being original, you get points for being good.

>The film begins with a narrator explaining German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche's infamous mental breakdown in Turin, Italy in 1889 after seeing a man continually whip his horse, which yet refused to move. After uttering his final words, "Mutter, ich bin dumm" ("mother, I am stupid"), Nietzsche becomes mute and demented, cared for by his family until his death a decade later.Kek, Nietzsche was fag.Imma watch this.

>>133664341The dude should have died or been grievously injured in in a lot of his stunts. How did he keep getting away with it?

>>133663667Yes, you get points for being original because we are living in the 21st century and there is so little room to be original. But if a film's only redeeming quality is being original and doesn't make an overall good job, you don't consider it as a good film. Simple.

>>133666078>One Wonderful Sundaythanks for the rec. from the description, I'd say the film isn't as flashy or poignant as Rashomon, Seven Samurai, Ikiru, Yojimbo, Throne of Blood, or Ran. and with those in your pocket, anything can be overlooked.

where should I continue with Ozu? I've watched the flavor of green tea over rice and thought it was good, however I have no clue to where to jump from there.
