hmm for some reason I thought this movie recently had a critical reappraisal and people really loved it... but I don't see why...

edit:

In January 2010, Mick LaSalle of the San Francisco Chronicle designated it the No. 1 film of the decade.

??

Film and television critic Matt Zoller Seitz has said it is his favorite film.

???

I want to like it. Couldn't. It's actively bad. It was an original type of filmmaking but so was 2 girls 1 cup

Dragged Across Concrete was 9/10

Gonna watch Arctic next

power of the press- frank capra- 1928

a delightful noir-comedy, this ~60min silent film came out just as sound was being introduced. sophisticated camera movement, style and well-paced editing. documentary-esque segments show the production process of a newspaper. good performance by douglas fairbanks jr.

i saw this with a live organ player, performing right under the screen and providing synchronized sound effects (telephone rings, typewriter tapping) which made the whole thing really wonderful. (just shows that silent film was rarely ever silent.) recommended!

ferrara on pasolini (the man) is the strongest material from this disjointed film. it's endearing how he got ninetto davoli to attempt to recreate something those scenes of what pasolini was wishing to make

Transit (2019) - incredible movie. was about ready to put it third out of the Petzolds I’ve seen, but that final 15 minutes fucking sealed it for me.

been going through a bunch of japanese films lately just watched The Hidden Fortress

i was expecting to be hit over the head more with all the Star Wars shit it wasn't laid on as thick as I had been led to believe. the horizontal wipes, the servant girl pretending to be the Princess and the two bumbling lower-totem characters sure but I thought this was supposed to be a much more brazen ripoff

Story is good pretty entertaining and quick for being 2H20 but nothing special for me

many of cronenbergs movies have the same overriding sense of paranoia, thriller genre trappings and multilayered narrative worlds of existenz. naked lunch, videodrome, scanners...

THE SOUVENIR, pt. I (Hogg, 2019)

Really looking forward to that one. Just watched Archipelago the other day and really liked it.

Edit: Wow, yeah, just watched Exhibition and Unrelated too; these films are so good.

which of his films did you watch?

he doesn't have a directors credit on it, just cinematography and writing and it's much lesser known b/c it hasn't seen an official release in quite some time (as far as i can tell this is true of most films from the la rebellion movement) but i have to recommend bless their little hearts (1983) as a spiritual sequel to killer of sheep that focuses on a deteriorating marriage within the watts community if you're willing to seek it out. (edit: i have a rip and i'd like more people to watch it so i'll go ahead and dropbox it) it's stunning.
