if you don't like those films, I don't think aldrich is for you, but if you feel like giving him a last chance, check out the big knife!

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

Honestly Robert Aldrich isn’t great at making movies


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?

Specifically that .mkv? Because the movie itself is available on Hawkmenblues.

Some of what I've been watching

Thriller, A Cruel Picture (1973) -- Nasty!

Au Secours! (1924) -- Really fun haunted house short with some great special effects. This one pops up on a lot of those creepy old movies lists. It's on YouTube, so check it out.

At midnight I will take your soul (1964) -- Great fun. I got the whole Coffin Joe box set & wondered how they managed to squeeze so many sequels out. Only one way to find out!

Limite (1931) -- Very nice movie to just look at and drift along with the pictures and the music. I haven't been able to get the Debussy orchestral version of Satie's Gymnopédies out of my head.

Lady in the Lake (1946) -- Fun noir with a POV gimmick.

The Face Behind the Mask (1941) -- Peter Lorre looks like he's about to start a post-punk band here. He tries to leave a life of crime behind with a 'Hope we can still be friends!' attitude towards his ex-gangmates. Yeah, that always works out well.

Le Petite Lise (1930) -- Early talkie where they were experimenting with the sound. So a early morning bedroom scene sounds like a Merzbow concert. Pierre Alcover is extra-awesome. I need to see L'argent (1928) tout de suite.

The Last House on Dead End Street (1977) -- Almost turned it off in the first half hour. I can't stand those 70's movies where they just shot the thing silent and dubbed in voices and sounds later on. Psyched by the 4D Witch being my most hated example. It does get a little better later on, with some atmospheric scenes, but it doesn't work as a shocker anymore now that the making-of has been so fully exposed.

The Last Movie (1971) -- Seems like it could have been kind of a neat Wicker Man precursor, but it's completely incoherent. I liked the last 10 minutes or so the best. Going to watch the The American Dreamer documentary about Hopper making this movie next.

Angst (1983) -- Serial/spree killer shocker. The lead is good and properly bug-eyed, but I didn't really care much about the goings-on. Good Klaus Schulze score though, it reminded me of Muslimgauze & Vatican Shadow. Austria sure has a lot of crazies.

Saw Gloria Bell last night. It was good but probably just about the base level of how magical/joyous a movie that is entirely watching Julianne Moore for two hours could be. Definitely a nice good movie but didn’t capture much further than that
You are canceled for me. Buh bye.
