Autumn Sonata (1978)- Ingmar Bergman
Instant all timer for me. Bergman and Ullmann gave two of the greatest performances ever committed to film imo.

Backlash (1956)- John Sturges
It was ok. Widmark and Reed were great though.

Don’t know if this qualifies as 2018 or ‘19, but it’s the top of the tree.

I've definitely been enjoying the Petzold I've been seeing recently. I really like Yella.

Presented The Act of Killing in a movie theater in my town, but not too many people showed up. There was just a local film festival that probably took away the crowd that goes to the movies once or twice a year. Plus it's depressing & heavy. Still glad I got to show it though.

Anyway, I was inspired by the silent movie thread to up some of my favorites to the db this weekend. Have a look!

la casa lobo/the wolf house - 2018

pretty much essential viewing if you are a fan of experimental animation. heavy shades of brothers quay. a dark fairy tale that is really about a german colony in chile run by a sadistic sexual molester ex-nazi

About 15 or 16. It's a small town. I had a few flyers I mostly handed out at work. The cinema itself did promote it as well. I could have done more in retrospect, but it's hard to tell what people will show up for. 60's/70's Italian and French movies seem to do well, but some Hitchcock and Billy Wilder movies did <10 visitors. Green Book was a hit, but the place was empty for the new Gaspar Noe.

ya. if you're outside coastal cities, arthouse cinemas are bleak as hell these days. finding a fit between the right audience and the right film is harder than ever before, let alone figuring out the best ways to promote events in such a saturated entertainment landscape. that's really cool you did that. that is god's work

It was a good experience overall. Was very much dreading stepping in front of an audience and talking, but it went smooth. Indonesia can be a touchy subject here and I'm no expert, so I talked about movies more than history.

I don't think either of the other movies on my shortlist, First Reformed or The Disaster Artist, would have fared that much better in a town of 47.000 in the very south of the Netherlands.

edit: since this is top of page, a reminder that in the db, you can now find By the Law, Limite, The Unknown, Show People, Foolish Wives &&&, all warmly reccomended.

can’t say i liked Burning — i love a lot of murakami’s work, but this felt like it perfectly captured his worst indulgences. hamfisted mystery + pretentious minimalism + beta male angst :?

Marathon Man (Schlesinger, 1976)

70's hollywood movies could be so weird man. Why aren't movies weird any more. Hoffman looks really smelly the whole time. Seems like one of the better paranoid thriller types.

Image
Bob le flambeur (Melville, 1956)

I decided to start a rewatch of the Melville flicks since they're all up on Criterion Channel and a lot of them... I first saw them 10-15 years ago.

The city is so great in here. The empty wet brick streets at dawn. The way the movie has such a constant propulsion forward through locations and time and Bob just never stays anywhere until the casino at the end. Purely stoicism and absolutely no melodrama.

Image
Society (Yuzna, 1989)

This one has been on my list of things to watch for so long but I suppose I knew enough about the content to know I had to be in a very specific mood to watch it. I appreciated it, but, man the lead dude is exceptionally awful on screen even in the leagues of 80s horror protagonists.

Image
A Touch of Zen (King Hu, 1971)

Extremely very good... of course. Everyone knows that this movie is very good. The coda, after the movie seems like it reaches a natural ending point, is a bit haphazard and weird, but is also the best sequence of the movie in every way so...still I wish this was somehow twice as long as it already is.

Memories of Murder (Bong Joon-Ho, 2003)

Watched this in prep to go see Parasite next week and it was just so good. One of the most excitingly staged/choreographed films I've seen in a while. Also a particular treat for me tonight because I watched a quick video on criterion channel about Mizoguchi's Street of Shame and the way that film is blocked for ensemble so I was thinking about that the whole time. Just really amazing physicality and interactions. Everything is timed and placed so perfectly, just such a joy to watch.

I really wanna watch Mother and Memories of Murder. my gf and I love Zodiac and Prisoners and stuff like that but she's averse to Bong Joon Ho because the only one of his films she's seen is Snowpiercer and she hated it so much she turned it off. but those older ones are not as silly, right? (I love Snowpiercer.)
plz if u get a chanse put some flowrs on algernons grave kthxbye

memories of murder is a masterpiece

it does have some humor (as do all of bong joon-ho’s films) but it is not nearly as silly as some of the others. it’s right up there with zodiac

watch it
