It was the first time I've been to the theater since my son was born and I think the joy of sitting in the dark with no interruption really affected my review. The past couple days my wife and I have been bringing up issues with it constantly.

How did Molly just wander into her home???

God they really were. I was dying at some of their stuff though. When cassavetes said “who cares if there’s a gate that’s never stopped us before!” And Falk went “never stopped us before? Jesus, they’re gonna think we’re cemetary freaks!” :lol:

Pom Poko (Takahata, 1994) - this is basically Studio Ghibli's Battle of Algiers, starts off you think it's just gonna be an environmentalist parable but then it becomes a legit study of collective action, ideological warfare, genocide, assimilate-or-die, etc. straight-up masterpiece imo.

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: 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.
