Bluebeard's Eighth Wife (1938): Ernst Lubitsch

enjoyed this, felt Cooper was miscast tho. i'm a fan of his but he's way too dry for this sort of thing imo, shame because everyone else was good.

Last Year at Marienbad (1961) - I like going into movies blind, so this was a big surprise. Had a good time just going along with the flowing images, especially after watching a bunch of 40's & 50's films in december. Would love to see it on the big screen one day. I think this was a hpn reccomendation.
Image

Female Prisoner #701 Scorpion (1972) - Really amusing & colorful. Got the sequel lined up.
Image

Deadly Prey (1987) - After laughing so much at the classic everythingisterrible short for years, watching the full thing didn't really add much. This has a really high body count. Lost it at the guy sleeping in a the water bed at the beginning.
Image

The Ten Commandments (1923) - I love how much insane sinful behaviour you could show in movies as long as it had a christian message. Doesn't reach the heights of the first Ben Hur or Sign of the Cross, because the biblical times part is just 45 minutes or so. When the story moves to the present 1920's, it becomes interminable. But the extended prologue is SO good, highlighted by a great kind of orgy, complete with drinking wine off women's feet.
Image

Investigation of a Citizen Above Suspicion (1970) - I liked this, it was like a satire without exaggeration and a black comedy without much humor. Reminded me of Czechoslovakian movie Ucho from the same year and Hitchcock's Rope.
Image

Watch on the Rhine (1943) - Finally checked this out after having it on my watchlist for YEARS and I didn't give a shit about any of it. Weird pacing and some of the strangest children characters I've ever seen in a movie. It was like Bela Lugosi & his robot kids. The solution to the main story's problem was so obvious I was almost shouting at my tv. Stick to All Through the Night or The Stranger.

Lana didn't make it public until shortly after Speed Racer, but there were definitely rumors of it in the press way before the film.

also, the Speed Racer wiki still credits "The Wachowski Brothers" and lists them as Andy and Larry, what the fuck?

Based on the result of a WikiProject Film discussion, credits in articles about films "should not be retrospectively altered to accommodate name changes at a later date. A person should be credited by the name they were using professionally at the time the film was made". Because of this, "The Wachowski Brothers", "Larry Wachowski" and "Andy Wachowski" are used here to describe the film's directors, despite the fact they have both since come out as transgender women.

yeah that's definitely fucked. seeing your post led me to watch lilly's speech as she accepted the glaad award for sense8 and she says this:
there’s a critical eye being cast back on lana’s and my work through the lens of our transness. this is a cool thing — because it reminds us that art is never static. and while the ideas of identity and transformation are critical components of our work, the bedrock that all ideas rest upon is love.

that's cool. marginalized filmmakers i feel like often shy away from talking about how their minority status is reflected in or informs their work because they're, understandably, worried about being pigeon-holed. but like your film can be feminist and be other things too. me calling a film feminist doesn't mean that that's it's only feminist and nothing else, just the same as me calling a film romantic doesn't mean that it's only romantic and nothing else.

but also i get that, like, if you're a woman directing a film, everyone wants to hear your perspective on women in film and why aren't there more female directors and this and that, but sometimes you just don't have anything of interest to say about that and that's okay too

The Guilty - This was good! Didn't feel like too much of a gimmick, nailed most of the big moments. Locke would be the obvious comparison point, I thought it was about as good as that. Jakob Cedergren was excellent - I'm as big a Jake Gyllenhaal fan as anyone but I'm still not sure I need to see him do this. Saw it in a theater but it's actually one of those films I wish I'd watched at home on a laptop with headphones on.

Well, I saw The Rider today...Something I've learned from growing up with a severely autistic sibling is how much of a gift these types of relationships can be. Brady's scenes with his sister and his visits with Lane Scott were deeply relatable to me. A gift in that one is conditioned to be compassionate, aware of needs, and must reach deep to be a continuous vessel of softness, support, and positivity while getting no traditional tangible recognition or gratitude in return. That was an ongoing journey for Brady that ran parallel to "riding." Except horses actually responded to him and changed. Rodeo was the place to fulfill his destiny aka reconnect with his parents and roots. Without those outlets, well, he's kinda just like me to be honest - very little direction, hardly a dream to be had, a strong ongoing pull toward responsibility to others.

Not even getting into how satisfying the background story of this is re: Zhao and westerns, and the coincidental nature of finding Brady, etc. But it's a story of a guy who isn't really able to fully vent his circumstances. Lives by a code, has to show up places, and is left to figure out the unfigure-out-able. All of this internalization set against such an expansive backdrop led me to just sit there wide eyed. It was the first movie I can remember seeing that only when it ended did i break down emotionally.

i rewatched Southland Tales (thanks DB!) for the first time, after about 12 years since it first was released, and I guess this was the uncut version. oof.

anyone here a fan, and willing to point me to a readable/persuasive "defense" of the film?

i know the film scholar steven shaviro hailed the movie as a masterpiece. so i have to look at that. but, after reading the 2013 Motherboard interview with Richard Kelly, i feel less confident that theres anything worthwhile going on here. Kelly's repeated admission that there are massive chunks edited out of the film is glaringly obvious; it just felt unfinished/half-baked to me.

Love this one. Ucho is great too but it isn't as ambitious stylistically and it also doesn't have Gian Maria Volonté.

this movie makes no logical sense really? is relentlessly mortifying, has a very confused message, and is outright offensive at times. i don't think it would get greenlit today without drastic changes (altho there is a sequel due this year). it's really dated. it's bad!

i really enjoyed it

Couldn't even finish Campion's Portrait of a Lady. Maybe I'm just a dipshit but I could not for the life of me understand why the characters were doing what they were doing, and, while I've never read the book, it's hard for me to imagine that being the fault of James. Sometimes Nicole Kidman would just start crying and I'd be like, what, why, why is she crying, like I was some oblivious husband or something I dunno
