sorry if this is the wrong place to ask, but does anyone know what the best service is for legally streaming Good Films? Seeking the spirit of a well curated video store c.2005.

I've looked around and there seem to be a bunch: Mubi, tribeca shortlist, filmstruck, fandor, shudder (horror films), le cinema club... any of these any good? It seems weird that in this day and age there isn't a place that I can go to just find X cronenberg or brian de palma or fassbinder film etc.

filmstruck got axed (RIP), Criterion is probably your best bet in this day and age for Great Shit, Fandor is too niche for my Classical Narrative Film Interests but it's good (though i feel like there was some ambiguity over whether it was supposed to discontinue at some point?). i'm an instinctive anti-mubi contrarian. hopefully the Warner library obtains a reasonable platform.

kanopy is pretty excellent. selection may vary depending on your local public library system. you also are "limited" to something like 12 plays a month

Kanopy: Not Just Like Netflix, and Not Free
https://filmquarterly.org/2019/05/03/kanopy-not-just-like-netflix-and-not-free/

For all its benefits, though, Kanopy is not free. Some news articles state more precisely that library users watch films for free, but of course the library pays for the service. A fee for the service is not in itself a surprise or a problem: Kanopy has a lot of good content and their offerings include foreign films, older films, independent features, documentaries, and experimental work that other widely available streaming platforms have historically lacked. However, Kanopy is not just like Netflix, or any other subscription video on demand service (SVOD), even if its innovation is applying a Netflix-style user-friendly platform to the library market. As much as Kanopy cultivates this confusion in the user’s mind, its website’s economic model works very differently from subscription streaming sites, and these differences have an impact, especially in higher education. Particularly as newer, distributor-run streaming services like Criterion Channel and OVID start up, it is worth highlighting how Kanopy operates in a fundamentally different way.

Recently, an increasing number of scholars have become aware of a simple fact about the service: university and college libraries do not pay a flat fee like individuals might for Netflix, Hulu, or the (now defunct) FilmStruck. Instead, Kanopy’s platform drives “patron-driven acquisition” in which three viewings (defined as 30 seconds or more of a title) trigger a library license fee per title. (The figures I’ve seen are $150 for a year, $350 for a 3-year license, though the price might vary or change over time.)

Those fees can add up quickly, and some libraries have felt a strain on their budgets. For instance, Stanford University called Kanopy’s cost “no longer sustainable” as they announced their switch from an open-platform version to a limited-access, request-only version (the only way libraries can turn off the license fee trigger of patron-driven acquisition). [3] However, these issues do not affect public libraries, which pay Kanopy per view (current fee of $2), similar to a transaction video on demand (TVOD) service like iTunes. [4] Still, patrons do their local public library’s budget no favors by streaming the “free” Kanopy titles, even if those libraries presumably factor in the streaming costs as part of their mission.

The average media consumer, accustomed to a $13 Netflix monthly subscription or a $20 Blu-Ray, might be shocked at Kanopy’s education-market price of $150 per film. However, Kanopy did not invent the disparity. Since the advent of the VCR, there has been a split between personal-use and educational pricing. What Kanopy is actually doing is providing a subscription-like experience for a video market driven by per-title educational (not individual subscription) pricing.

check out librarian twitter. on the back end the pricing is unpredictable and it creates unrealistic/false expectations in the user that they will have free, unlimited access to the best films, essentially like an improved netflix. i haven't been able to find the actual amount they were charging NYPL when the contract fell thru, but they have different arrangements with each library.

seems like maybe the ceo is realizing things are getting out of hand?

the ceo claims that they are helping the filmmaker, but they are gouging the exhibitors who are essentially the delivery mechanism for the content.

as far as uni libraries go, the price they charged me for a one-time, research viewing of AN ARTIST INTERVIEW was the same as if i called up a distributor to program a feature-length, repertory film at a movie theater while charging admission

i was super hyped for this because strickland has hit 3 for 3 so far but have to admit when i first saw the trailer, while excited, i thought it looked possibly hokey and potentially a mis-step, but NOPE, he's now 4 for 4. this was so good! nobody else is making movies like him, i feel like he's making them especially for me, and i bet others feel that way too. his vibe is just so perfect. admittedly it loses steam a little towards the end when it doesn't know exactly where to go with the central conceit of a killer dress, but really there's only one place it can go and it does go there and it was alll good. gwendoline christie is great, she is so good with comedy, barry adamson (!) is great, fairly sure i saw adam bohman of bohman bros. fame briefly (he was in berberian too...i guess a friend from strickland's sonic catering band days)...all of the staff in the dress shop are fantastic. there's a duke of burgundy call-back. the soundtrack by cavern of antimatter is really good...and when the main character first goes back to her apartment she's listening to the last track on the skaters wind draping incense ep which is an all-time favourite, i mean from there on, the deal was sealed. imo he's one of the most interesting and exciting auteurs working. i hope he makes a hundred more movies.

Whoa, never in a million years would I think that this Skaters track would pop up in a movie I'm watching.
Anyway, you sold me, I love that loop so much I can't not watch this movie now. Do you have any idea what the source material is? Sounds like The Carpenters or the Partridge Family.
