How was your /film/ weekend, anons?Mine had:>SaturdayFear X and Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors>Sunday Finished Too Old To Die Young (didn't like the final two episodes, but as a whole the series was pretty good) and also watched Yeelen, The Ritual and The Heart Of The World.I made some progress in some subs I was working on as well, so it was a pretty great weekend.
>>174377155still using the wrong chart link, OP. it's missing a "j"mega.nz

best movie directed by teenagers?
>>174377743I'm not sure I know any films directed by teenagers
>>174377335>SaturdayThe Conversation>SundayThe Woman in the Window (1944) and DetourEnjoyed them all thoroughly
>>174377941I think Xavier Dolan directed a few when he was a teenager.
>>174377434>Han Ye?I have absolutely no idea what you're talking about. The subs I'm making are for CG and KG. Pretty obscure VHS rips with a great GB value.
>>174378435>Han Ye?>I have absolutely no idea what you're talking about.early /film/'s holy grail. the film was found, but we still don't have English subs

>>174379522>>174379721What other directors did he insult?
>>174379492>>174379691Why does everybody hate Godard? Is it just because he was an asshole or also because of his movies?
>>174379879A little from column A, a little from column B.
>>174379879Some hate him because he was a communist.
So everything I read compared this movie to Hitchcock.I liked the performances (even old Cary had amazing charisma) and the script was great but I don't get the Hitchcock comparisons since the direction on this movie was merely serviceable with none of Hitchcock's technical expertise. I was a little disappointed.
>>174380135The people who compare this film to Hitchcock only pay attention to the plot points of a Hitchcock film and not the technical elements
So, /film/, with Sight & Sound 2022 coming soon, what's the better film, Vertigo or Citizen Kane?
>>174381147I'd rather rewatch Vertigo anytime so that has to be my pick out of those 2.Really though it should be 2001 imo though.
>>174381147how bad is the list going to be? it's going to be filled with capeshit and strong black lesbian films
>>174379285>>174379325/film/sisters, I need more cool kino like Le samourai
>>174381751I know that Get Carter is a completely different kind of cool, but it's kino nonetheless. Or try classic noir. Chinatown is cool in a noir way too.
>>174379879i'm the one that asked for the varda one, and i don't hate Godard. i just think that image is pretty good
Anyone know any good femdom/bdsm kinos?
>>174378754By the name I'm guessing it's chinese, right? Unfortunately I have absolutely no knowledge in asian languages, otherwise I'd be very happy to help.
>>174382722yes, it's a Hong Kong film from 1955. here's the mega if you're interested or know anyone who might be able to translate mega.nz
why are 1930s westerns not remembered when they made so fucking many of them?
>>174384100There will be 500 capeshit movies looking back 50 years from now and you will ask why they aren't remembered "when they made so fucking many of them"
>>174384263But 500 capeshit films haven't been made in the last 10 years. Letterboxd has 949 westerns listed for the 1930s, and I guarantee they are still missing some
>>174384429capeshit internet defense forces
>>174385137what? I'm just saying that the quantity of capeshit films is no where near the quantity of 1930s westerns. I'm just wondering how only like 3 of them are remembered today when they made over 900 of them
>>174377564Brother Sun, Sister Moon
what are some other films like Flaherty's Nanook of the North, Man of Aran, or Moana?

>>174387780Give me some keywords and I'll give you 3 films.
For me its:1 - Andrei Tarkovsky2 - David Lynch3 - Sergei Parajanov4 - Stanley Kubrick5 - Akira Kurosawa6 - Carlos Reygadas7 - Martin Scorsese8 - Glauber Rocha9 - Yasujiro Ozu10 - Bela Tarr
>>174389392idk today I feel like watching something that's just very beautiful, very poetic and only about 90mins or so
>>174389733either that or some dumb fun shit like Hard Boiled or summat
>>174389733Sayat NovaPirosmaniGoodbye Dragon Inn
>>174377564And Then There Were None
>>174384100Plenty of those are, among people who watch westerns
>>174389554Why overrate Lynch so much? Can't believe you all fall for his tricks. Gilliam should have the respect that Lynch gets.
>>174384429In the 30s they could put a movie together in a week. A lot of ones on that list are very low-budget movies made during John Wayne's awkward period between The Big Trail and Stagecoach. They could make 30 of them in the time it takes to make one "capeshit" movie, so they did.
Should I watch Dekalog: Five or should I replace it with A Short Film About Killing since from what i've read it's just an expanded movie version of that episode.
>>174389341Yes, film is an essy medium, not a narative fiction medium. Before you laugh you must realize that 99 % of viewing is podcasts, youtube shows, and news shows like Fox and CNN. All those are essay filmmaking. Essay cinema utilizes cinematography better than narrative fiction films because the audience never notices the cinematography. That is the sign of great cinematography. >>174390464Jodorowsky deserves the love that Lynch gets because he creates daring, transgressive art.

You guys will never ever guess what I am drinking at this very moment. It's a bit early, I'll give you that, but still, never a bad time to enjoy some.How is everyone doing here? I had a bit of a mishap yesterday, broke my HDMI cable, and because I use a laptop as my "PC", I couldn't watch anything on my 27" screen.. Not to fret, I bought another HDMI cable today from the store, so I'm all set again.>>174387628Wasn't fond of My Dinner with Andre, I guess the conversation has to be interesting to enjoy the film.

Watched Putney Swope on Sunday. I was really irritated by it at first but I came around to it when the US president showed up. Pretty good.

Does anyone by any chance have a pdf/ebook of the book "Chaplin and Agee: The Untold Story of the Tramp, the Writer, and the Lost Screenplay"? Got really interested in Agee's screenplay "The Tramp's New World". I don't really care much about the book aside from that, but it seems to be the only place where you can read the screenplay.I can't find it anywhere online. It's available on amazon but I'm not from the US and I don't really want to go through all the trouble to get it shipped to Europe.Also for anyone who has read it - is it any good?
Kino of the highest order. What other Japanese documentaries should one watch after this /film/?
>>1743775643, 6, 7, 9, 19, 20, 22, 24, 26, 28
>>174406171Took me about five seconds to find a PDF of the book. Where do you live?
>>174377743the most famous teenage director is Xavier Dolan who was 19 when he made "I Killed my Mother"Bertolucci made the Grim Reaper when he was 21John Singleton was 22 when he made Boys in the HoodSam Raimi made Evil Dead at 22.Welles made Kane at 24To me it is Spielberg's Duel though. Yeah he was 25, older than Welles. But Welles had the entire industry behind him, the best of the best. Spielberg made a blockbuster thriller of a master, on no budget with no shooting days. He is simply unparalleled.>filming completed in 13 days (three longer than the scheduled 10 days), leaving 10 days for editing prior to broadcast as the ABC Movie of the Week.Are you fucking kidding. God damn
>>174406686and before anyone is getting jealous of these directors, they were all born rich to highly connected, elite level parents. None of us are succeeding like them, only in our dreams.

>>174407051the socioeconomic class you were born as is the number one indicator where you end up in life. not education. not IQ. not race. When people are pushed through artificially they do not fit in. this is why Barry Jenkins is directing Mufasa: The Lion King. hollywood pushes through people and have no idea what to do with them.
>>174407586>be minority born on the rough tracks>diversity quota pushes you in.>two choices: race baiting, or... Barry Jenkins : Mufasa the Lion KingAva DuVorney: The Wheel of TimeChloe Zhao: Marvel's The EternalsRyan Coogler: Rocky 10meanwhile, Wes Anderson... born rich... is on his 18th movie with an a list cast and full creative freedom.
>>174407586Sure, sure. Not what I was referring to.
>>174407640>Barry Jenkins : Mufasa the Lion KingIs he really directing it? Yikes.
>>174407706Yes, forever staining his name with it. Very amusing.
Is the user I was asking about surrealism in relation to Lynch and Obayashi still here? Because I'm still interested in discussing it. If they aren't surrealist, what are they? Just "experimental"? >>174236826>Obayashi's Poisson d'avrilAlso, where can I actually find this? On rutracker and other torrent sites. Nevermind, I just found it!
>>174377155does anyone here had torrent link of maria candaleria?
>>174407798If you can't spell its name right you'll have a hard time finding a torrent for it.
>>174407582Damndidn't think you actually have itThank you fren!
>>174407883No problem, fren ;)

/film/ died with godard
>>174383128can i ask why this is so sought after? i don't recognize the director and it seems like it would be very niche. i hope you're able to get it translated :)
>>174412547it made multiple "best of chinese language/hong kong" lists with a pretty high ranking and almost no one has seen it. this caused one user to become interested in it. then another user was bragging about being on KG, so the Han Ye user asked if he could post Han Ye. he couldn't. then the search began with multiple anons getting involved and one user emailing the Hong Kong Film Archive only to find out that they supposedly have some of the only copies, but you can only watch it in person. about a year or so later some user found it had recently been uploaded to YouTube, and I downloaded it and set up the mega. the YouTube link has been deleted, so I believe the mega has the only digital copies floating around now
>>174413069thank you for the explanation. i had commissioned a friend of a friend to make subs of a chinese short film a couple of years ago, but i doubt she would be available for a higher level project. i imagine a large avistaz or KG bounty would speed things along. fascinating story nonetheless
>>174411785Ive been watching a few of his films the last few days. The more of them I watch the more I like the ones I didn't like at first. I think he is a director that grows on you.
>>174413548I like Alphaville best due to the robot. It is also most groundbreaking by combining film noir, sci-fi, and french new wave. It is also hilariously amateur, but yet that makes it even better somehow.
>>174414243Yes, Alphaville is perfect. The girl in it is the perfect femme fatal.
>>174387420>the piano teacheronly the first half
>>174414355It's so boring you're crazy
>>174414412No they were just having a laugh and making a fun detective flick. People take Alphaville too seriously.
>>174414355I got filtered hard by Alphaville. Made no sense to me at all.
>>174414771I see it like he grew up watching detective flicks so when he got to make his own, was just having a laugh. like that is what the new wave is about, a bunch of young people taking over the industry and making irreverent and cool french flicks.
>>174398020Yeah.I'm sure that's what people in 2022 would say.
