Let's talk about movies, then. Don't have to be lefty films but obviously recommendations on that front are also welcome.
As if it wasn't obvious enough it was going to be a piece of shit. Unless they have some genius idea, this will be up there as one of the most unnecessary sequels ever.>>27550>>27609
I wonder how much they want to do this based on Death of Stalin being praised. I mean it's James Franco lol. IDK how they'd try to make him do a serious biopic. He does vaguely look similar to Fidel but he's a gringo and Fidel is definitely way outside his acting range. Huge miscast that suggests it's going to be mocking Castro.
Movies just keep getting better, the future is bright kinobros
Whatever happned in the early 2000's?
proliferation of independent news others and review sources that aren't economically beholden to studios and related corporations for survival
Ohhh yes, that's the one! Thank you!
How do you feel about Jordan Peele so far? A lot of people here are probably turned off by how kainstream he was from the get-go. Get Out was good though white liberals don't seem to get that it's about them and their racism. I'm not even sure what Us was supposed to be about (MKULTRA maybe?). Nope is probably the best of his films so far in delivering a coherent message to the audience (it's very Debordian).
In this climate anybody who's kind of unique and gets the auteur license to do whatever without having to mold it into what's considered marketable is preferable to the standard.
it’s just horror schlock
LMFAO literally the opposite
actual independent news sources have their own cash flows that are clearly not coming from the movie industry, meanwhile randos on the internet could easily be hired shills and trolls
Nope is barely even horror, it's more of a thriller with some horror and neo-western elements
Is he a "hipster" or does he just have a very particular taste for disgusting pervert movies
I love TGTBTU, but it's hardly a masterpiece of the medium.
STOP POSTING JANCSÓ MOVIES. After seeing 1 Jancsó movie, you have seen every single one of them. No narrative, no coherence, all symbolism. You know what's every single Jancsó movie is like?>empty fucking field>people talking>they start to sing>a soldier comes into the frame>a woman strips naked
All of this is in a single ~5 minute frame, because the director likes dumping narrative elements in front of a camera instead instead of actually using them to create a narrative. No cutting, that might force Jancsó to arrange the things happening in front of the camera in an orderly way. You can't just have that, you mustn't make a movie comprehendable to humans, because you know, that's not "artistic" and shit. For roughly half a century, the taxpayer money of decent Hungarian working people was wasted on this shit. For the most part this took place under the leadership of a "communist" government. This really tells you a lot about how serious was the committment of Hungarians to communism (the same is true about progress in general and human decency).
You are not the chosen brother, Eli.. t’was Paul, who’s chosen. You see, he found me and told me about your land, you’re a fraud. I did what your brother couldn’t. I broke you and I beat you. It was Paul who told me about you, he’s the prophet. He’s the smart one. He knew what was there, he found me, to take it out of the ground, and you know what the funny thing is? Listen, listen, listen… I paid him 10 thousand dollars, cash in hand [slap] just like that. He has his own company now… a prosperous little business, three wells producing 5 thousand dollars a week. [chinless whimper heard] STOP CRYING, YOU SNIVELLING ASS, STOP YOUR NONSENSE. You’re just a afterbirth, Eli… that slithered up your mother’s filth. They should’ve put you in a glass jar on a mantlepiece. Where were you when Paul was suckling at his mother’s teat, where were you? Who was nursing you, poor Eli?
Eli Sunday* got him mixed up with the cartoonist
>>28047>what's every single Jancsó movie is like?<describes an obtuse falsification
I don't even like Jancsó but you're being disingenuous.
Maybe you guys already know but there's a cool YT channel that's been uploading Russian (mostly Soviet) movies in full for free. And it seems legit so it shouldn't be taken down cause commie movies == no copyright, I guess?? https://www.youtube.com/c/Mosfilm_eng
I kiss you on the mouth
Mosfilm has been uploading full length movies from their old catalogue on YouTube for a while, although only in 480p standard definition. They started uploading the full HD versions this year I guess cuz of the sanctions over the invasion. There's also this https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCTKpdDNg-FgqRDg7TbIOgoQ
why is the Telugu version of RRR so hard to find
We still posting favourite films? Here's a few anyway:
The Ninth Configuration
The End of Evangelion
The Ninth Configuration is a wonderful film which always puts me in a contemplative mood, and End of Evangelion (and the tv series) spoke to me more as a depressed uni student than any other piece of media ever has.
Where to get an industry insider's breakdown on the financing and and making of a film like 3000 years of longing?
It seemed really interesting for reasons that have nothing to do with the actual film. which was basically expensive travelogue gloss.
Any good film industry insider pod recs?
yts.mx has a little known feature that allows sorting by language and imdb rating ie it allows listing of every russian film by imdb rating, or release date, or genre. All other world cinema too. It's an affliction tbh because there is no excuse for watching capeshit when all that quality is so available and well seeded.
I did a search for lo fi sci fi on letterboxd. Some really quality Russian films from all eras. Just on a different level to something like the total waste of time that is Deus.
yifi has done so much for film preservation
i see so many movies that i wouldn't have found anywhere else if they weren't seeding it
like daltry calhoun
The film is unoriginal trash that steals the premise of an existing Soviet film and inserts holly-wood bombastic decoration. >>29187 >Orson Welles being intensely arrogant yet calling someone quiet and unassuming to be arrogant >muh Chaplin
Guy really had a bug up his ass because people only remember him for Citizen Kane and transformers, apparently.
Don't think he gave too much of a shit about people 'remembering' him from transformers since it came out about a year after he died.
Orson Welles was openly arrogant, while Woody Allen hid it behind a timid, "self-deprecating" mask
BTW it comes from this https://www.vulture.com/2013/06/orson-welles-lunch-with-henry-jaglom.html
which is just excerpted from a book "My Lunches With Orson: Conversations Between Henry Jaglom and Orson Welles" by Peter Biskind
wait what , he was in transformers??!?>>29200Do we have a pirated copy
Is it actually based or is it just Russian nationalist garbage like all WW2 movies made in Russia after 1991
After sitting through a lifetime of western imperialist garbage it's such a breath of fresh air to see the nationalist garbage put out by other countries.
Recent Chinese war movies have been just fucking top. Lots of themes of group co-operation with top, top technical kino.
Plenty of nationalist Russian war film post 91 is good too. You don't like hearing your stories from the opposite perspective anon?

>>29244>Seperately, look at what the right are cutting into movie trailers
I can't listen with sound. wtf is this?
don’t know if bait but this is absolute rube taste, starting with the numeric rating system
what do you believe is a good rating system, or is a rating system itself inflammatory to judge art?
i use a very simple metric, which is like or didn't like, also would rewatch is a metric
Something along the lines of
—Interesting at least
You should just use your words to describe your appraisal of a movie, in the end
Someone theorized that he had an old mistress (that's also credited as a producer) that bankrolled the film
Reminder that Tommy Wiseau was born in the USSR
