pasolini (2014) - abel ferrara
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

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.

I happened to watch it this week as well. Really good, compact movie. With the production code in effect, I expected the heels to get more of a comeuppance. The main bad guy was appropriately slimy. Ryan was great.

Got a triple feature lined up for today: De Toth's RAMROD (35mm), Hong's HOTEL BY THE RIVER and Aoyama's EUREKA (35mm). Between those, ISHTAR last Friday, WALDHEIM WALTZ and an MFA thesis screening yesterday, LONG DAY'S JOURNEY INTO NIGHT tomorrow, GERMANY, PALE MOTHER Tuesday, DRAGNET GIRL (35mm) and DAYS AND NIGHTS IN THE FOREST Wednesday and THE AREA Thursday, I will have logged about 21 hours in screenings this week.

Point is, who even has time to post about movies

I put on the first garbage i came across on Netflix because i like to have something on when i eat and i hadnt planned ahead and my food was getting cold and that movie ended up being Mile 22 with Mark Whalberg.

You only have to see this if you like to see Whalberg acting intense and delivering ridiculous lines. The writing of this tries so hard and fails. I think it was trying to go for some Mamet or something (who i actually dont particularly like) His character is supposed to be extremely bright.... There's also John Malkovich playing John Malkovich (in a completely inconsequential role). Like he's been doing all his career. Mind you i'm sure at this point he's just in it for the checks since it's not like good roles abound.

It also takes the dumbest bet a movie can take. It goes in thinking it has a franchise on its hands. So, SPOILERS!!!!! the movie pretty much ends in a cliffhanger. And badly. The heroes don't win. Everyone involved in producing this was obviously way overconfident about what they had to take such an insane bet. Even if you plan a franchise, you have to have a self-contained first movie, you don't know if it's gonna work yet. It's like if instead of New hope the first SW was Empire Strikes Back. The movie made a profit, but of only 6 millions (on a 60 millions budget). the critics were at best average. This isn't getting a sequel. So you've got a movie that even if it was competent, which it isnt (save for maybe any action scene involving Iko Uwais though the editing is kinda bad) )still wouldn't be satisfying on its own. You MIGHT only want to watch it IF it was getting a sequel and IF that sequel was actually a lot better. And so it's absolutely unrecommendable (is that a word? ). Other than for Intense Whalberg fans. You can tell in every line he utters too that he thinks "this is it, this is my Bourne, my Mission Impossible, this is the character that is gonna pay for everything between now and my retirement"

Just watched Prospect. It's on Netflix right now (well...in canada anyway)


Love at first sight.


I mean ok, it's not MINDBLOWING really. But fuck does it put 99% of low budget sci-fi without it seems having to try hard. Great, great art design, very 70's, makes the most out of its lack of budget, makes you believe in its world without ever having to do much. Words here and there, ideas that call on your imagination to fill in the blanks. We WILL definitely hear from the two writers/directors again (hopefully not just to have them make some Marvel films 5 years from now....). And i imagine also from Sophie Thatcher, the teenage lead. SF films like they don't make them anymore. Simple story, nothing fancy, just tight and tasteful writing and directing. Favorite movie i saw this year so far (ok i have NOT watched much at all, but still), it put an actual tear to my eye.

To think Will Smith and his son made a movie with the same basic story (well I mean, sorta) for millions more and it absolutely sucked.

thought 'her smell' was tremendous, was not expecting to enjoy it half that much

stylistically felt like a cross between 'a woman under the influence' and 'punch-drunk-love' (especially that score!)
