 No.1676

Alright so some movies which I'd put in my top ten which people probably haven't seen would be:

Paths of Glory(Surprised nobody knows about it since it's a Kubrik, but it did get buried by the French government for telling French history [i]accurately[/i] COMPLETELY FALSE, THE FRENCH NEVER LOST A WAR!)

Tora Tora Tora(simply because of how accurate it is compared to some *cough* other films)

The Seven Samurai

The Lobster(I have a soft spot for absurdism that manages to tell a play in film format)

The French Connection(nothing revolutionary but it's quite accurate and tells the story it sets out to without convoluting it)

 No.1677

I don’t watch movies that much, but here’re my top 5 anyways:

Perhaps it was Sicko (2007) by Michael Moore?
>A documentary comparing the highly profitable American health care industry to other nations, and HMO horror stories including shotgun deaths.


>Writer/producer Michael Moore interviews Americans who have been denied treatment by our health care insurance companies – companies who sacrifice essential health services in order to maximize profits. The consequences for the individual subscribers range from bankruptcy to the unnecessary deaths of loved ones.


>Moore then looks at universal free health care systems in Canada, France, Britain, and Cuba, debunking all the fears (lower quality of care, poorer compensation for doctors, big-government bureaucracy) that have been used to dissuade Americans from establishing such a system here. The roots of those health care systems are explored, and our failure to establish free health here care is traced to a) President Richard Nixon's deceptive support of the then-emerging HMOs pursuing huge profits and b) subsequent pressures for Congress to sacrifice sound health care in favor of corporate profit.


>A group of Americans who became ill from volunteering at 911 Ground Zero, but were refused health coverage for their illnesses, are ferried by Moore to Cuba, where they receive the top-rate, free care one would hope they'd get here at home.


>In his interviews, historical reportage, and typical sarcastic wit, Moore soundly condemns American health insurance companies and pharmaceutical companies, as well as the politicians who have been paid millions to do their bidding. He makes the case that there is something wrong with Americans that we cannot learn from the successes of other countries in providing better quality-of-health than we enjoy in the USA.

Has anyone here seen Midsommar? If so what did you think of it? We watched it with friends (we are all euros) and the symbolic ties/gimmicks with neo-nazism in the states seemed obvious to me but not to them. Also the extreme collectivism is compared to Western indivualism, which by mirror effect is supposed to be extreme as well. Thus my analysis : being alone and without anybody to understand your burden isn't normal but showing mirroring empathy isn't. My liberal friend saw "human nature" in Dani's solitary suffering, and I tried to argue with him using anthropology as an example -which is ironic considering the importance it has in the film and he didn't seem to catch that. Am I giving the film too much credit on that?

>how do you even measure the intellectual level of movies or do you just 'feel' like they are?
You measure by how they treat the viewer. As an example, in Captain Marvel there is a scene where she's breaking out of her chains. If the writer thinks the viewer is a retard, they'll add a shot of a side character going "She's breaking out!", which is exactly what they did. For a movie that expects its viewer to be moderately intelligent they'll assume the viewer can pick up on visual clues, like in Alita: Battle Angel (which doesn't require you to be a genius but you'll miss some stuff if you're not paying attention).

This has to do with the changing nature of the film business because of competition from streaming. The number of films released by major studios is down, as are the prospects of mid-budget films
https://www.the-numbers.com/market/
https://www.vanityfair.com/hollywood/2019/05/is-the-mid-budget-movie-an-endangered-species
The studios are competing by betting on epic big budget films, much as they did in the sixties in their first battle with television. They also have the advantage of playing about as well everywhere in the world.

So, when you're spending 200 million on a single film, your focus is going to be on making sure the investment pays off, not innovation or art. That's why nearly all big movies are adaptations, reboots or sequels and why they're all so samey. The Marvel films in particular have hit upon a very efficient formula. Modern information technology has allowed media companies to narrow down the most safe and profitable content in media produced today.
They almost always have generic plots. And the epic ending is usually either battling thousands of faceless drones or fighting a villain who monologues every time the fight is about to transition, the serious hero says something serious, the jokey hero says a quip, then they generically fight some more, then something something sky beam does shit, the villain gets arrogant because the plan is working, then the hero says the final quip and the villain makes an “oh shit” face then dies.
Avengers, Age of Ultron, Infinity War, Thor Ragnarok, both Guardian of the Galaxy movies, Endgame and Black Panther to name just a few marvel movies all do this.

The reason this slides and is liked is because they don't know nor understand alternatives of the past or future. People have no hope so they look up to mythological tales set in modern era and the destruction takes place which one might enjoy in a nihilistic way. It very much reflects many more simple hero-stories of Greek Mythology, however lacking the counterbalances in the form of tales of Oedipus, Orpheus and Phersephone, the Illiad and Hercules' labours. These criticized many aspects of over-powered Greek heroes like Theseus, who just win at everything and are smarter and stronger than anyone they meet.

This reflects Adorno's laments on cultural decay and machinization, in his theory of social spectacle and the resulting industry.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M-m_7G31yh4

I wonder from time to time if Adorno and the other Frankfurts were purposefully targeted as conspirators specifically because cultural degradation has always been a reactionary racket, and the right didn't want competition from the left in the marketplace. After all, the CIA has literally admitted to helping this along, with people like Gloria Steinhem being their direct assets as well as Ghettofication and subsequent thug subculture after revolutionary leaders were removed and replaced by angry liberals.

Watched À Bout de Souffle (1960) last night after checking out La Chinoise (1967), liking the latter but being too tired to finish it.
My god, I fucking hated À Bout de Souffle - they say La Chinoise isn't "good" as a first Godard because it represents a pretty big departure from classic French New Wave toward a more purely didactic style, but I actually found that more innovative, engaging and daring than the self-absorbed meaninglessness of À Bout de Souffle. That surface-level conversation, that smugly style-over-substance attitude, those insufferable midwit main characters, is that just what the French New Wave usually is or am I totally missing something? Or are there other films by Godard that simply evolve the same style in a more interesting direction (I've heard good things about Vivre Sa Vie [1962])?

The first film I'll contribute is Stanley Kubrick's Barry Lyndon, here's a video showcasing some of its best shots https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RcLZU3_XNMo. It's not just visually beautiful, it's a great drama, every scene is captivating and the protagonist Redmond Barry (later, Barry Lyndon) is relatable and multi-dimensional. The acting is great, the cinematography is amazing. It's a little bit long at over 3 hours, but you don't ever feel like Kubrick wasted time or included filler. Silent moments are full of meaning, which is communicated by the environment or by the actions of the characters of the scene. Go watch it, it's great.

Elia Kazan's A Face in the Crowd is an engaging drama that explores the cost of fame, and at the same time criticizes the media industry for it. Andy Griffith's performance is legendary and elevates the film into a must-watch. It isn't beautiful like Barry Lyndon, but it has good cinematography, dramatic scenes make good use of shadows and camera motion. The actors, especially Andy Griffith, express an impressive amount of emotion through facial expressions alone. Must-watch if you enjoy dramas.

BTW I know that the director Elia Kazan is kind of anathema to leftists b/c of his testimony to HUAC but at the same time this movie has a redeeming theme in its criticism of the culture industry. One of my favorite films ever.

Agree tbh. A bout de souffle is the beginning, and imo the evolution of Godard during the new wave period is what made him compelling as a director moreso than any particular film. Have you seen Le Mépris (1963) or Pierrot le fou (1965)? You can feel the evolution in motion very keenly in both of those and it's very engaging.

If you liked La Chinoise I'd recommend Tout va bien (1972). It has a coherent narrative structure and a far less cynical dialogue/consideration of the left while remaining unabashedly experimental. If I do have a favorite movie of his, it's probably this one.

This series profoundly changed my view Trotsky and the whole political situation of Russian civil war. Its not totally historically accurate and its a little bit tacky with its low budget and some bad actors but I'm having fucking dreams about this series. I fucking cried and went into revolutionary bloodlust as the series progressed. I cannot recommend this series enough.

But this morning I was in a such melancholic/romantic (there isn't a English word for this) state this morning after the love of my life killed herself in my dream. The dream seemed to take a lifetime for me. I was Trotsky in Havana not Mexico and at the end of the dream I was watching movie about myself that a sexy French journalist made about me and she wanted to show everyone the true Trotsky with his weaknesses but also the love story between me and my wife. Me and my wife stared at each other with love as the black and white movie rolled in the background. Later my wife threw herself from a bridge because we were in some kind of terrible situation and basically fugitives.

Hi people, sharing another film, this time it's "To Live" (or Lifetimes) by Zhang Yimou, a Chinese historical drama tracing the life of a man and his family from pre-Revolution China to the end of the Cultural Revolution and everything in between. The soundtrack is simple and poignant, which befits the straightforward narrative. The dramatic scenes feature the recurring riff in different emotional contexts, which ties them together; the decades-spanning narrative is totally cohesive. It's moving and is just as effective on a rewatch. Here is a youtube link, although it's not in HD: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wNTd0dydfE4

Here is another one, "Dear Comrades!" from veteran Russian filmmaker Andrei Konchalovsky, a film about the 1962 Novocherkassk massacre, in which a protest over consumer price increases led to the deaths of 26 people. Right off the bat the film has an austere tone, it's shot in black and white and framed in 4:3, no doubt emulating Soviet films of the 1960s. The massacre and the events leading up to it are told exclusively from the perspective of Lyudmila, a bureaucrat serving on a city committee, who experiences a crisis of faith. Since I'm posting on leftypol.org I should emphasize it's not a crude anti-soviet movie, it should be interpreted as a character study of a person whose trauma conflicts with her convictions.

Because Ken Loach is one of the few prominent Western relics of social realist, explicitly left-wing filmmaking. As modern cinema got increasingly co-opted by liberals and their post-modern views on narratology and art, every movie that is deemed as "having a message" is either banal, surface-level drivel or purposefully ambiguous, preferring meta-commentary and stylistic expression to telling an actual story, honest-to-god story about the working class.

Testament of 1983, without a doubt. It's the story about how a family in a Norman Rockwell style close-knit rural town tries to survive the aftermath of an all-out nuclear war. There is no bombing scene, no mushroom cloud, no political context - just a series of bright flashes, the power goes out, never comes back on, and everyone is left to die of starvation and radiation sickness. Threads is shocking, but Testament is slow, hopeless despair.

>>16367
>>16425
I just watched Miss Marx, thanks for the torrent link. Here's my review:

Well, WoosWoos wasn't wrong. Eleanor Marx's political life is almost entirely kept out of view in favor of her personal relationships with her family and Edward Aveling. After bizarre title credits mutilated in After Effects and set to punk rock, the film begins with a (fictional) eulogy by Eleanor at Karl Marx's funeral, which sets the tone for the rest of the drama: "[Karl and Jenny] never doubted, they never faltered, and they were faithful until death". Immediately after the funeral Eleanor is hit up by Edward Aveling (not present historically), which kicks off a relationship much rockier than the one she just described. What follows is a plodding romantic drama wherein Eleanor struggles to reconcile with Edward's sexual infidelity and profligate spending.

Like I said before, Eleanor's political activities are usually kept in the background as literal set dressing. WoosWoos (of course) denounces the film's "feminist outlook", but this the only trace of this comes from the one sole feminist speech shown in the trailer. I had thought for sure that Eleanor's confrontation with Ernest Belfort Bax would be portrayed. Bax was a leading Marxist theorist with rhetoric similar to today's Men's Rights Activist movement; as an open opponent of women's suffrage he provoked an incensed Eleanor Marx to challenge him to a public debate (Bax refused). Bax is nowhere to be seen, nor any other major figures from the British socialist movement. Instead, the climactic event in the story is a (fictional) deathbed revelation from Engels that Karl Marx was the real father of Freddy Demuth, therefore exposing that her father was just as deceitful as Aveling. (The "Marx's illegitimate son" theory is probably not true, see https://www.marxists.org/subject/marxmyths/terrell-carver/article.htm)

I have a few more things to nitpick: first, practically none of the figures portrayed in the film are recognizable compared to their historic photographs. This can be forgiven for the lead roles, but a little extra makeup would go a long way for fans of the Marxist Cinematic Universe to spot cameos in the background, like Liebknecht, Bernstein, etc. Second, while all the actors give decent performances, the script is flawed. It waters down the political content and adds exposition (IE, no family nicknames like "Mohr" and "The General"), but apparently not enough to appease general critics. On the flipside of this the Marxist audience is slighted, the characterization of Engels for example feels completely wrong. Enough things have been changed for dramatic license that I don't trust the characterization of Eleanor to be "real". Finally, the anachronistic punk rock soundtrack is cringeworthy every single time it shows up. The absolute worst scene is the inexplicable dance sequence at the end, which - apparently - symbolizes the moment Eleanor decided to end her life.

Overall score: 1.5/4 stars. TL;DR: plodding romantic drama devoid of political content that fails both as entertainment and as a historic biopic. Skip unless you're really bored.

Unfortunately, no. Although thinking about it reminds me of his characterization again, the Engels shown in the movie could never deliver that famous speech.
>YOO HE'S ACTUALLY IN THE MOVIE?!??
Not as an essential role but yes, he has a few scenes. Pic related is him in the movie.
>you say it is kept out of view but here in the excerpt it looks pretty clear front and center, is this the only instance of it?
Pretty much yes. There is a montage style scene showing her day-to-day political work that I excerpted from, then one more speech that implies Aveling's abuse inspired Eleanor to become a feminist. This biopic of a famous revolutionary has maybe five minutes worth of political content.

Watch the movie, it's even on the /leftypol/ reading list AND a top movie of all time.

If you don't have time or are a lazy bastard:
The main character, news anchor Howard Beale, suffered a mental breakdown and rants about the world being shit. His jaded boss lets it air because "it's the truth", and instead of being fired, Beale becomes start of a televangelist-like show. He has delusions of being a prophet, and at one point he learns about and preaches against how the TV station's conglomerate parent is about to be sold to the Saudis. A chairman of the conglomerate, Arthur Jensen (Ned Beatty), then brings him to a room and performs this speech to manipulate him into preaching his "corporate cosmology", similar to what you said, a 'money is the quantum of life today, there aren't nations or peoples, just money', which he claims will someday bring a post-warfare, post-scarcity, post-mortal utopia.

I've watched it, and it's a very good spy movie. At the beginning, we see one of the communists spilling out details about the operation to avoid being shot, but our four protagonists don't know about it. The operation is kaput from the start, which makes sure the movie is always tense. All of the spies are smart, making moves to withhold/extract information from others. This feels exactly like what a spy movie should feel.

Unfortunately, I can't say I enjoyed the movie to it's fullest. There were moments where I couldn't absorb new information fast enough. All the characters wear the same clothes, which did not make things easier, plus I find remembering their names quite hard. A character/event flowchart would be a welcome companion while watching it.

From what I've been able to research, this is actually a prequel to the 2012 tv show "悬崖" (Cliff) by the same writer, Quan Yongxian. In an interview (https://inf.news/entertainment/bd5332246260958e06dc8ead644ec3da.html), he said that in 2015 he had written the script for this prequel as a 60-episode show.

If this had been a tv show – or even a book –, where things could flow in a more friendly pace, this would've been a absolute must watch. Overall, it is a very good movie, and I recommend anyone interested to watch it, even though you'll scratch your head sometimes and may wish to rewind a bit to understand what is happening (though I didn't, and was still able to enjoy it very much).

Probably : water to drink, electricity for reading at night, the radio to say 'This is not the end of the world, this is Year 1, and now a page of Celestial Mechanics." The implementation of these resolutions is the first day of a new era, Year 1. L'An 01 is emblematic of the challenge of the 1970s and covers such diverse topics as ecology, negation of authority, free love, communal living, rejection of private property and labor.

Midsommar started out so good then just ended completely retarded.

Maybe even worse because every single person acted retarded and unaware right up to the moment they were killed. You'd expect at least a couple of the people in the movie to catch on eventually.

I guess this replaced the films you watched recently thread.

Anyways just saw the man from Toronto. It's basically a soft spy flick were Woody Harrison does his thing of being a tough but secretly caring father figure to some hapless looser. This time played by Kevin Hart. Who honestly imo was pretty funny and the action was pretty decent. Mostly because Woody just tore him down the whole movie. The best part of this movie and SPOILERS ahead. Venezuela hired the mam from Toronto because they wanted to assassinate Guido at the opening of the Venezuelian U.S embassy in D.C. Guido who is called the president, which I guess means in this movie he did become president. Or the U.S built built a embassy for the fake president of Venezuela. And I guess loyalist to the Maurdo regime wanted to assassinated him?

6/10 okay to watch if you can't think of anything and want a laugh.

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).
