Been on an italian western/neo-western phase lately. prolly gonna start reading from kill bill to shane and alex cox's book on spaghetti westerns soon.

The Great Silence - Prolly Corbucci's best (then django, then the mercenaries, then hellbenders). It's filled with cynicism and p much an indictment on the idea that a single actor/the archetypal "the one" trope can somehow embody socialism and upend a ruthlessly individual status quo, even at a time when the old west was dying. real honest bummer ending. kinski is always gold in westerns, even though he sleptwalked through them.

If You Meet Sartana, Pray for Your Death - Parolini isn't one of the luminaries and he def rips off the lee van cleef archetype (man in black with gadget-grade weaponry), but this was more stylized than a lot of the cheap, mercenary productions. And it's odd...has a mordant sense of humor and plays like a twisting, turning neo-noir. complete with a femme fatale whose allegiances keep sliding. The lead laughs. In it, he essentially is a ghost - just manifesting with no clear-cut desire for revenge or the good. It just happens that his (mostly nebulous) aims end up being getting rich and then dematerializing again. You think Kinski's going to have a bigger turn, but he's out by the end of the first half hour. Parolini does this weird thing with the frame rate to speed up a guy's drawing on someone, and it looks bad.

Cut-Throats 9 - This and the Great Silence are all over hateful 8. It's one of the absolute nastiest movies ever and had this vaguely Sorcerer vibe to it (disparate criminals all thrown together and trying to survive in a life/death desperation run). It's real unique. Like, it has a strong preoccupation with gore - going beyond the smattering of bright red paint and prosthetics of a Leone flick. And you have these vile flashbacks scattered intermittently. Then there's the fact that your hero is dispatched half an hour in, leaving you with absolutely no moral focus beyond a poor young woman with this roving gang of cons and seeing how crestfallen she is at their continued survival. The surreal reverse house burning hallucination was great. It's a treasure.

The Magnificent Seven - an American Western that came just a bit too late to be a part of the classical cycle, but came just before the western became relegated to the province of tv. It's a bit too...sweet and too moralistic to be a neo-western. But everyone gets their business/their little arcs. They're sketches but they have just the right amount of backstory and motivation to invest you in their fates. James Coburn's primary propelling force being, "No one fucking takes my own gun from me" was bad ass. The "prospects: zero" speech shows venn diagram crossover of wandering, laconic loner masculinity that was written all over the western and the noir cycles. Robert Vaughn low-key steals the thing.

Hateful Eight - I've said a lot about it in the past but really what Tarantino has done in his last few moves is move past loving and literate film reference and pastiche to straight up making film criticism as movie. Iunno.

I love Possession but would be reluctant to see it in a theater because it's the kind of movie that would attract the sort of assholes who would laugh "ironically" at everything

Hey I was there, too! Second row. The sound was insanely loud and I loved every second of it. But yeah, there were a fair amount of annoying laughers throughout. Not necessarily ironic laughter as much as nervous laughter but still kind of aggravating.

I'd managed to never see this before and I can't stop thinking about it. I got home and ordered that fancy Mondo Vision blu-ray edition immediately.

Same theater is showing The Image Book this week, they are killing it with the programming lately (they had Patrick Wang's A Bread Factory recently as well). The Landmark meanwhile has been showing Roma, Green Book, Beale St and other Oscar hopefuls for what feels like 6 months at this point.

Well, it's certainly surprising since I find myself drawn to films with intense thematic content and usually you can only go so far in that direction with a PG or even PG-13 rating, yet this film managed to satisfy that interest entirely, while still getting a PG rating. I mean, it's a film about a drug-addicted war veteran with PTSD; it seems like it would be a heavy movie for a child.

Yeah presence of drugs alone should bumped it to 13. But I doubt many kids were bugging their parents to take them to see Leave No Trace. Maybe with a little more runtime devoted to “forest adventures” there’d be something to latch onto

Ratbags, don't you think frivolously insulting someone on a message board is quite retrograde? If you don't find my posts interesting I'm sure you can manage to ignore them.

Normally you start posting like a dumbass and trying to insult everyone when you're having a bad day.

If you think I'm saying "any movie about ptsd should be rated above PG" you're incorrect, and if you assume that I'm an asshole because of the way of speak then, well i don't really know I guess that's fine if you'd like to believe. In any case, I don't think I owe it to anyone to write in a style that pleases them. You, on the other hand, should not try to police by way of ridicule the posting habits of others, unless you somehow think my posts are offensive, which is a little difficult for me to believe.

In what way exactly?

Idk, maybe this doesn't belong itt. In any case, I'd hope that my posts on hipinion are not offensive, though of course I can't lay claim to being a perfect progressive either; I'm not sure who among us can.
