Chantal Akerman has passed away. I've only seen News from Home and Hotel Monterey but I appreciated her unique style, even if it required patience.



What's interesting about her personality is how she rejected the title of feminist film maker even though everyone wanted to put her in that box. Most obits you'll read today are quick to include that label in their descriptions of her. I remember hearing that she did not like doing "women's film festivals" and preferred regular festivals instead.

> I won't say I'm a feminist film-maker ... I'm not making women's films, I'm making Chantal Akerman's films. (London, 1979)

Just when i was recalling him yesterday and thinking no famous HK directors have gone away in many, many years.

Ling-Tung Lam "Ringo Lam"

An ignored actor who morphed into director after realizing he liked to write and take photos more, he became a employee director and stuck gold after doing a quirky sequel for a famous comedy series, for his money-move he was granted an opportunity to do a personal project.

He pulled one of his reserved stories and made his most famous project, 1987's Dragon vs. Tiger aka City on Fire, infamously known these days as the movie that heavily-inspired the famous director Quentin Tarantino. But the film is no obscure piece of work as it is one of the first movies, along with A Better Tomorrow, that defined the Hong Kong Blood Opera action genre that permeated the late 80's through the early 00's and added another layer of ridiculousness to the modern action entertainment.

Also known for doing the last Van Damme classics after the man was blacklisted from Hollywood for his personal antics. His other notable works are all bloodbaths: 1987's Prison on Fire, 1992's Full Contact, 1997's Full Alert and the 1992's Jackie Chan twin movie.

Not a paragon of truly meaningful filmmaking but certainly an iconic mind in popular culture: Dual-wielding chinamen flying over smoke and mirrors in neon light nights. And Jackie Chan, with Van Damme, playing piano.

Jonas Mekas

December 24, 1922 – January 23, 2019


Though he is frequently credited with helping create a form of cinema that radically broke with filmmaking norms, Mekas resisted the term “experimental.” “No one was experimenting,” he told the Guardian in 2012. “Not Maya [Deren], not Stan Brakhage, and certainly not me. We were making different kinds of films because we were driven to, but we did not think we were experimenting. Leave that to the scientists.”

stop necroposting shit



Nothing wrong with refreshing the mind a little if something hits the fan, and we can see there's nothing around other than what >>14010 said, which is a sad state of affairs in terms of the whole site's userbase, but perhaps not /film/ itself.

Starting our own production or company means having time to do it >for free for about as long as we manage to create anything, either screenplays, shorts, acting, etc. And i think most of us are here for the hobby and the slim possibility of using our knowledge to do or help something/someone.

And i know it's a joke but trying to pull something like that (physically) is as plausible as /pol/ or /k/ buying that african/oceanic island to make an ethnostate. Digitally there's everything for it but given the time lapses and tastes i think everyone works better alone, unless it's a screenplay and it needs second opinions or inking/coloring if you wanna go fancy/executive.

That last one might happen someday if you guys still roam around in 2 to 3 years It's been almost 5 since we came from m00tchan

I think that pdf is not so good because it comes from html rather than a scan of the pages. It's like reading a 1990s website. While it's better than nothing, it needs an upgrade.

The actual book was surprisingly rare last I checked. Hardcover pretty expensive. It's not the greatest writing in the world, and the descriptions of each film are rather brief. But I'd still like to find a physical copy in good condition. It's a significant exploration of films outside the mainstream.



>not the greatest writing in the world

totally agree

I know why I don't read americans. I was sceptic a lot after discovering he's actually Vogelbaum and New Yorker, but didn't expect it to be sometimes more painful than cringey/funny. Anyway it's interesting to see that in '74 he seemed more than optimistic about collapse of capitalistic regimes

>a significant exploration of films outside the mainstream

it still is

I still can't find any reason whatsoever how could film devolve into video and further into shit.

This thread reminded me of the Viennese Actionists. Their performance art is rather distasteful and I could only stand to watch for a few minutes when I first heard of them. My memory is that naked people were flopping around slapping chicken meat on themselves.

Maybe I'd feel differently about watching this garbage now, who knows.

I remembered the name Otto Muhl, so I decided to read about the man. Wikipedia says, "Otto Muehl (16 June 1925 – 26 May 2013) was an Austrian sex offender and artist, who was known as one of the co-founders as well as a main participant of Viennese Actionism and for founding the Friedrichshof Commune." Sounds like a class act.


File: a6cfdb336a814e1⋯.mp4 (8.12 MB, 1280x720, 16:9, Kurt Kren.mp4)


Looking into it more, it's an interesting movement despite some of the disgusting aspects. The Kurt Kren shorts on Index 01 gives the performances added impact via rapid editing. Selbstverstümmelung is particularly effective.

The commune is another topic altogether. A Marxist sex cult. Throw out the natural order and replace it with whimsical new rules.


>In 1970 Otto Mühl founded a commune in Vienna. The experiment was an offshoot of the ‘Aktionismus’, a Viennese version of the happenings in New York, lead by meanwhile legendary artists such as Nitsch, Schwarzkogler, and Brus. The happenings – in German ‘Aktionen’ – were an effort to lift all kinds of taboo in art. Many an artist proceeded to complement the revolution in art with a revolution in life itself. Life as the ultimate work of art, so to speak.

>The ideal of life-long fidelity was replaced by the ideal of absolute promiscuity. It was forbidden to make love with the same partner more than once a week. And also the frequency had to be reconsidered accordingly. With ‘bourgeois couples’ the frequency of copulation, grown to daily drudge, dropped to an alarming 2,57 times a week, at least according to the then widely known statistics of Kinsey. In Friedrichshof one was supposed to make love as often as a Muslim bows to Mecca. Whoever would like quality to prevail over quantity was reminded of the fact that ‘sex’ had to be unlinked from mere bourgeois ‘love’: foreplay and similar ‘romantic nonsense’ were unacceptable. Ideally, the job had to be done in a few minutes. To protect the communards from the dangers of bourgeois inertia, a rather efficient measure was introduced: men were not allowed their own bed. So they had to look for a shelter every night. Thus, even a slowly moving wheel had to turn at least one round a day.

I just started reading this.

Walter Murch (besides his more famous accomplishmemts) directed an episode of The Clone Wars, and it made me go back and watch his and George Lucas' earlier projects like THX 1138, after which I decided to buy this (I also just finished a biography of George Lucas that was a good introduction to Murch's era of Hollywood filmmaking).



Is there anything in the book that sticks out at you?

It is hard for me to assess the quality of editing unless the editing calls attention to itself.


Good stuff.



>Is there anything in the book that sticks out at you?

Well the whole idea is about "cutting on the blink". Murch talks about how blinking either accompanies a human switching to a new thought, or is even more directly part of how we switch to a new thought by "cutting" or creating a discontinuity between one moment and the next. He likes to cut a moment or two after a blink, and other things like that.

The rest of the book is a really dated analysis of digital editing that is only really interesting now as a curiosity.

Peter Weibel, Endless Sandwich (1969) - cascade of technical difficulties

Herbert Pierre, Around Perception (1968) - epileptic madness

Harvest was produced by the United States Information Agency to advertise US agriculture to foreign markets. For some bizarre reason USIA content could not be shown within the country.


Of course there's no good reason for the US government to use public funds to produce advertising for select industries which are perfectly capable of advertising for themselves. Morally dubious and totally inefficient use of money. Maybe this kind of stuff was done to keep the lobbyists happy.

<"Sunset is about a civilization at its crossroads," Nemes said Tuesday in a statement issued by the Hungarian National Film Fund.

Walking in Darkness (2019)

directed by Tang Tang

A grim thriller from China. I don't have a plot summary because there is not much information about this film yet. But the trailer is intense,



>Why would women make gay porn?

Not to fag the thread up but a lot of gay porn producers are women, or pioneering women aka trannies.

Seems like they had the vision to make movies most men would find uncomfortable to film, and it seems no gay was smart enough to operate a camera, find crucial contacts, publishers and warehouses/rooms to do the banging, homos just did all their action spontaneously.

Also you need a somewhat respectable public image to do all that bidding, even in porno market, and women usually look more respectable than a strong dude with an overly silly lisp.

At least that's what i understood after reading Sharon Kane and Chi Chi LaRue stories, 2 important characters in a famed gay porn company known lately for appearing in edited joke videos about bad acting in gay porn movies. That's for the early years, nowadays it's a whole 'nother story.

I-i'm not gay, i just watch the joke vids for laughs at times. The poster looks quite pretentious, but who knows.

Let's have a thread specifically for longer content.

I don't watch television series since I'd prefer spend that time on, say, 10 completely different films. But I'm open to watching mini-series, a format situated between regular feature films and TV series. (It's just rare that I actually do it.)

Has /film/ seen any good mini-series (or old serials)? What long films have you seen, did you watch them in one day, and were they worth the time?

This dignified and stylized film, set in the Middle Ages, follows the exploits of Sir Perceval, a legendary exemplar of knightly chivalry and one of the champions of King Arthur's Round Table. The story is based on the verse tale Perceval ou le Conte del Graal as recounted by the 12th-century French belletrist Chrétien de Troyes. While living with his widowed mother, the young Perceval (Fabrice Luchini) is much impressed by the grandeur of the knights he sees, and he undertakes to become one.

Yuri Ilyenko's Legend of Princess Olga takes place in Kievan Rus' as Christianity replaces paganism. On his deathbed in 1015, Vladimir the Great is haunted by the enigmatic life of his grandmother Olga of Kiev. Her life inspired many legendary tales, ranging from tragic lost love to heartless acts of cruelty. Vladimir wants to separate truth from myth - if it's even possible for him (or us) to know for sure.

Excluding new releases, which films do you want to watch but cannot find?

I'm intrigued by Once, an allegorical dialogue-free feature that premiered at Cannes in 1974. The film could be fascinating or boring as hell, but the soundtrack of lo-fi ambient electronics would make it worthwhile to find out.


It's reasonable to assume the film still exists somewhere. Hopefully it becomes publicly available eventually.

The Cuckoo Clocks of Hell is a lost horror film. It's been said that the film is so graphic and violent that is caused mass hysteria in the theaters where all the viewers were attacking each other in their moment of insanity. Because of hysteria, the film got banned and it was toned down and cut from 3 hours to 78 minutes under the name "Last House on Dead End Street". Rumor has it that the original film still exists in New York's film archives.



Assuming this isn't just a marketing stunt, theoretically where would you need to go to find this movie in New York? There are dozens of archives here.

What do you guys know about Jerzy Hoffman? He made a lot of historical war epics in Poland

Colonel Wolodyjowski (1969) aka Pan Wolodyjowski

>In 1668 Polish colonel Michael Wolodyjowski, who recently retired to a monastery, is recalled to active duty and takes charge of Poland's eastern frontier defenses against invading Tatar hordes and Ottoman armies.

The Deluge (1974) aka Potop

>During the 1655 war between Protestant Sweden and Catholic Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth some Polish-Lithuanian nobles side with Swedish king Charles X Gustav while others side with the Polish king Jan Kazimierz.

With Fire and Sword (1999) aka Ogniem i mieczem

>An epic story about the Ukrainian uprising against the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth magnates in the 17th Century.

Army of Valhalla (2003) aka Stara basn. Kiedy slonce bylo bogiem

>In the 9th century, a tyrant oppresses pre-Christian Slavic tribes living on the Polish lands. They must unite for the common future.

Battle of Warsaw 1920 (2011) aka 1920 Bitwa Warszawska

>The First Polish 3D Feature Film! Poland's winning battle against Soviet Russia as seen through the eyes of two young protagonists, Ola and Jan. She is a Warsaw cabaret dancer, while he is a cavalry officer and poet who believes in socialist ideals.

The last two have poor ratings but I'd like to see the others



I don't watch Jewish films.



But didn't you just suggest The Cremator in the top 250 thread?

I listen to Funhaus movie podcast, they're cucks and plebs but it's entertaining



>I went into Reddit, expecting them not to act like Redditors.



I like Blank Check with Griffin and David, but I've learned which episodes to avoid. Basically any movie with mildly political themes or anything with a female guest is guaranteed to be liberal bullshit, which is a shame because the episodes that are just the two of them are pretty funny. Not super insightful or in-depth, but there's some really funny episodes mixed in with all the pozzed virtue signaling crap.



Hey the america cinema foundation ones are good. The host is conservative but he isn't preachy and he does't reeeeee about anything left wing. He sucks the godfathers dick at every available opportunity at every opportunity. The episodes with paul cantor are great and interesting. He made me like breaking bad even more than I already did. Hes very knowledgeable about Shakespeare as well. Give him a shot. I learned about it through this thread and have been loving it



I meant to say at every available opportunity despite it being very left wing

There's an amazing photo in that video. I'd never seen it before.


Also during the Spanish Civil War section, there seemed to be a gringo reading news in Spanish. I wonder what that was about?
