I received the German blu ray remaster of The Warriors just last week - it is the original cut without the comic book panel frames inserted in. SO happy to have it.

I had never heard of this one before. bjork stars in this moody black & white art film from 1990 which follows two sisters who flee their hometown after their mother is burned alive for being a witch. the older sister ingratiates herself with a widowed farmer and his spoiled son, who rejects his surrogate family. reminded me of bergman or early tarkovsky. there's not a lot to chew on, it feels slight at even 78 minutes, but the photography is gorgeous

happy death day 2u
I didn't really like it that much, but I will say that it takes serious balls to make a sequel which pivots away/abandons from its predecessor's slasher premise and straight up become a john hughes-esque science fair romcom about alternate timelines and coming to terms with your mother's deathToggle Spoiler

BABYLON, 1980

Pretty glad I didn't pay $15 to see this and not really all that bothered when the audio kept going but the video stopped over an hour into the pirated version I was watching. These guys certainly get jerked around by society, by neighbors, by the cops and it makes for fairly compelling viewing but it wasn't as controversial and crazy as the trailer I saw led me to believe. Maybe the last 25 minutes had some over the top shit that could change my opinion but overall seemed pretty tame tbh. Cool music and fun trying to understand the patois without subtitles. You get the point but couldn't tell you word for word what was being said.

Kisses (Masumura, 1957)

I was going to watch one of Yasuzo Masumura's movies and since I hadn't seen any of them I decided to start at the beginning instead. Some people give this credit as a proto JNW movie for its slice of the struggles of life for the Japanese youth though moreso it seems like a neorealist tinged romantic melodrama and I suppose it's interesting as a fairly plain and unpretentious youth movie, interesting to someone at least, but not to me. I thought it was very boring. Did you even really need to read this post? Probably not. Did you know that fixed gear bicycle race gambling tracks were very popular in Japan?

Kiss Me Deadly is insanely good imo but its virtues aren't the virtues of most later Aldrich where the filmmaking is more grimy and choppy and less pictorial, and it's all about how much the characters hate each other, or just like 'unstoppable force vs. unmovable object' type conflicts between two deadlocked adversaries. i think it's cool but i also think he's overrated in certain ways.

you should watch his worst movie The Legend of Lylah Clare it's so bad it's classic

"The Iron Ministry" (J.P. Sniadeki, 2014)
Incredible documentary about life in the chinese trains
slow, trippy and hipnotic, it includes some really powerful sociological + anthropological reflecions made by anonymous chinese people
one of the best films I've seen in the last couple of years

J.P. Sniadeki might have tied his fortunes to today's super worm equinox moon or something because I just saw a screening of El Mar La Mar by him and Joshua Bonnetta tonight

i agree, but you don't dig kiss me deadly? it has that really rare, strange quality of like feeling like a deconstruction of a thing that hasn't even been properly constructed yet, yknow? i get the same feeling from vertigo. they both feel like they're just kinda taking the piss in a lynchian way but of course it's still only the 50s

In terms of Aldrich you can't say he isn't great at making movies when he made Vera Cruz, Ulzana's Raid, and The Dirty Dozen. Or maybe you can what do I know?
