Somebody at work asked me about my friends the other day, so I told them all about /film/ You guys really mean a lot to me and I hope to have a meetup one day where we kick back and watch some kinos together and talk about life and all the good stuff. I've blown off countless plans to watch the newest kino flick then immediately rush here to post about it. All I have in life is /film/ and if anything were ever to happen to it I would lose my shit. Even the thought makes me terrified and now seeing all the new kino coming out like a new Carax joint makes me tear up. I love you guys.

It is one of the most imaginative and brilliant achievements in the history of avant-garde cinema."[12] In 1999, when three of its entries (the fourth, first, and fifth) had been made, Michael Kimmelman of The New York Times hailed Barney as "the most important American artist of his generation."[14]Zamn

>>186170513Is Karagarga inviting anywhere?

>>186172827>Beuys, Cronenberg, Cocteau and Kubrick are among the artists Barney resembles - along with early David Lynch and the Visconti of Ludwig. On paper this sounds too rich a stew, but actually to watch the Cremaster films is to be seduced by the physical qualities of cinema. Barney's films have had ripped from their surfaces the rational layer of dialogue and worldliness we expect in movies. What is exposed is complex, but also, unexpectedly, moving.>Even allowing for the achievements of Cremaster 4 (1994), Cremaster 1 (1995), Cremaster 5 (1997) and 1999's Cremaster 2 (Barney has filmed and released the episodes out of sequence), few could have predicted that the latest and last instalment, Cremaster 3, would be so satisfying. Not only is it longer than the others combined, and the centrepiece of the cycle, but it introduces new layers to the already complex structure and is as arresting as such silent epics as Cabiria (1914) and Intolerance (1916).– Mark Cousins

>>186173811Carax is confirmed with images from the shooting tho (previous thread). It's clearly neither Holy Motors (because I'm pretty sure the other character is not in Holy Motors) nor Tokyo! for the same reason, plus in Tokyo! the setting is...well Tokyo. And that doesn't look like Tokyo.

just watched Luminous Woman (1987) by Shinji Somai and I liked it, but it was weird as fuck. Seemed like Somai shot a 5 hour movie and some poor editor had to cut it down to 2 hours so it could be released in theatres. It's almost incoherent sometimes and it feels as if major plot points were just cut. Shonben Rider was similar in that regard.

>>186178897There is no such thing as "the role of digital". Digital became popular because it was cheap and it was easier to work with. Sokurov chose digital because it finally allowed him to shoot it all in one take. Serra chose digital because he could leave the camera on set rolling for hours, while actors improvised and came up with their own lines.>Lynch's love of video has much to do with the freedom it grants. Shooting with a camcorder removes the strictures of a traditional film production, allowing for a smaller crew, less setup time, and no accountability to money men. The lightweight camera, along with the low cost and high capacity of videotape, generally means more and longer takes. Video permits Lynch to indulge fully his taste for improvisation—to make things up as he goes along.It was never about the look of digital. Now, I respect any director who opts for digital, especially on tight budgets but to say there was some purpose to it looking different, and imo inferior, to film is wrong.

>>186179413>But they still tend to look less shit.Not really and plenty of old ones look like shit too because you need to be really good with lighting when shooting on film.

>>186179384the quality is usually written there so I have yet to encounter that issue

>>186179425there is and you just described it, you can do specific things with digital you can't with film. i wouldn't even say it's easier to work with.lynch literally said he shot on dv because it is lower quality and it allows for more intangibles lol, if that is not about the look dv then i don't know what ismodern film stocks are garbage, even film purist who shoot their films on film like PTA end up looking not even as good as some digital ones

> "I was wrong to show Intermezzo at Cannes. The film wasn't finished, it wasn't mixed, it wasn't fully calibrated. But I was so excited at the idea of introducing the young actors and actresses, especially Roméo (De Lacour), that I went. Besides, I had made a commitment to the festival. I had brought forward the time of the press screening and invited those concerned by the forthcoming scandal to see the film. I didn't at all expect the actors most concerned not to enter the room. I thought they were, and that's why I regret showing it at Cannes. If I'd known they weren't in the room, I'd never have shown it. A film that isn't supported or defended, when it's attacked, by those who are most concerned, can no longer express itself. There are other versions that are more accomplished, and there's nothing to say that after my death, my heirs won't want to show it, but as long as I'm alive, I don't want to."IT'S OVER

>>186179425>>186179963I've got to be honest, whatever you think of Nolan's flicks, from a purely visual standpoint his and Hoytema's handling of the 70mm IMAX stock sells me on the fact high-end digital still has a long way to go before it can match well-handled celluloid

>>186188028>muh consensus opinionYes, The Dark Knight is better than Heat. Fucking idiot.

Scorsese's only 2 good movies are Shutter Island which is a decent thriller and Hugo which is an okay Spielberg homage that doesn't have that magic at the end. Other than that his movies are offensive and should be banned for how he depicts Italian-Americans as retard brutes, but also glorifies them, yet maintaining that he is a Catholic. Not to mention unabashed anti-semitism in Casino and The Wolf of Wall Street.

>>186188062They are not The Age of Innocence and Kundun.

>>186188028Massively filtered

>>186188057The ending of Heat is bad because it messes up the plot, and he spends too much time on characterization only to contradict it. The same with the end of Collateral. The Dark Knight fails in its characterization because Joker is just a variation of the 'Even I a sadistic serial killer hate Nazis' as he only kills criminals and nobody of importance. As for the plot, it is fine, but jumbled, but it LOOKS AMAZING. Dark Knight is slightly better, as it's plot is strong it just is not convincing in its characterization.

>>186188116I haven't seen The Age of Innocence because I don't like Daniel Day Lewis, he's sexy but a bad actor. Kundun I always mix up with The Last Emperor not sure if I've seen it though.

>>186188399La Dolce Vita and Nights of Cabiria are his only two GOOD films. 8 1/2 is one of those slow self-pitying man dreck we have to pretend to like because he was famous when he made it. La Strada was typical 1950s sexism and should be ignored as a relic of his time. Amarcord is okay, nothing special, and a bit juvenile. La Dolce Vita is a wonderful film, and Nights of Cabiria is a truly impactful feminist tale cancelling out that horrid La Strada. Nobody cares about his other films, so save yourself a few hours and SKIP them.

>>186188451>La StradaI see Anthony Quinn in the credits so that sounds good to me

>>186178257>Annette, I only got around to it recently.I hated this the first time around. Ever since it came out I have seen it like 7 more times and I love it. Very strange film. It happened to me with The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance too, I thought it was meh the first time I've seen it but something was bugging me about it, I kept thinking about it and I loved it on a rewatch.

>>186187890The majority of his films are restored. It's just that his wife who runs his state is asking for a lot of money and labels aren't willing to spend that much on him

>>186170513HAHAHAHAHAHAHA, what the fuck was this shit???By far the worst thing she's ever done. An insufferable, ugly film about pathetic people living in an artistic haven and producing their shitty, nonsensical ""art"" while many others move around like they're doped. And she expects their garbage to be (very) admired: endless scenes with the """art""" being showcased sluggishly. The end credits are seven minutes of some mulatto turning threads around, ffs. It's a laughable film, but completely unintentionally. Wine grannies masturbating while mingling with the youth. She's always been a neo-hippie anti-men cretin while making okay/good films, but this is something else. No joke, this is a legitimate 2/10. Look at those quotes in the poster: the praise is the stuff of lunatics, a bubble of woke liberal arts. Even A24 couldn't market this shit to anyone but letterboxd cultists. Reichardt has gone senile is the best explanation.

We NEED a rococo maximalist onanism letterboxd list.

>>186188143plot of the dark knight is way more convoluted and all-over-the-place than heat. it uses the classic conceit of "well that bad guy we worked so hard to imprison... he got out - we gotta' do it again". and there's nothing philosophical or interesting about having two groups of citizens not blow each other up. "they weren't as selfish as joker was projecting they'd be" isn't particularly deep or surprising. all the harvey dent stuff is forced into the general joker plotending of heat is perfectly consistent with the most important theme of the film which is "people need counterparts; life is meaningless without them" >>186194499>Wine grannies masturbating while mingling with the youthit's interesting (on a freudian level) how every single incel rant these days includes "wine mom" or "cat mom" or "wine granny"

>>186200389>using incel non-ironically>doing a feminist critique non-ironicallyThe state of /film/

There's a specific reason why they seem so similar. >>186183881Before I sat down to write Taxi Driver, I reread Sartre’s Nausea, because I saw the script as an attempt to take the European existential hero, that is, the man from The Stranger, Notes from the Underground, Nausea, Pickpocket, Le Feu Follet, and A Man Escaped, and put him in an American context. In so doing, you find that he becomes more ignorant, ignorant of the nature of his problem. Travis’s problem is the same as the existential hero’s, that is, should I exist? But Travis doesn’t understand that this is his problem, so he focuses it elsewhere: and I think that is a mark of the immaturity and the youngness of our country. We don’t properly understand the nature of the problem, so the self-destructive impulse, instead of being inner-directed, as it is in Japan, Europe, any of the older cultures, becomes outer-directed. The man who feels the time has come to die will go out and kill other people rather than kill himself. There’s a line in Yakuza which says, “When a Japanese cracks up, he’ll close the window and kill himself; when an American cracks up, he’ll open the window and kill somebody else.” That’s essentially how the existential hero changes when he becomes American. There is not enough intellectual tradition in this country, and not enough history; and Travis is just not smart enough to understand his problem. He should be killing himself instead of these other people. At the end, when he shoots himself in a playful way, that’s what he’s been trying to do all along.

>>186173123>>186173811>>186174029>>186174253Ruimy's retarded but also kinda based. apparently Aster hates him for constantly leaking intel about Beau like a year before it was released lol

>>186203569Agree. One of the most underappreciated american auteurs along with Sam Fuller and Monte Hellman

>>186201641A Snake of June

>>186203636Fuller is plenty appreciated by the Euros, hell he even had cameos in Pierrot le Fou and that one Wim Wenders movie, and as far as I'm aware Two Lane Blacktop is widely considered a New Hollywood classic. Larry Cohen however... it breaks my heart whenever someone talks about him in the same light as those Troma hacks and such.

>>186203095Based post, beyond Sono.

>>186203856I think if people know him at all it's for his horror b movies like The Stuff or It's Alive (which I still quite like, they have a lot of clever satire). His non genre movies like Bone, Special Effects and the J Edgar Hoover one are completely on par with almost anything from the American new wave though
