I like other Melville movies outside of the hot streak I mentioned. It's just those four all in a row are god-level filmmaking.

Caught An Innocent Witch on criterion channel tonight. Gosho is a blind spot, but his roots were in melodrama and the books I’ve read that talk about his stuff don’t mention much late period work. But i had a hankering, and damn is this a dark, bleak movie. It’s a ruination of a young girl sold into prostitution, which is tried and true. But this movie is interested in the fatalism involved in being a woman within a social structure where, no matter where you are in the caste system, you’re victimized, but in particular, you cannot escape where you’re slotted. It’s a situation where the inevitable denigration of a prostitute and all the tragedy and indignities that follow are not explained by the complex of structural forces by rather individualized through mysticism. A lecherous rich father and his two hapless sons all become her patrons at different points - the sons of which become lovers. They all die and she becomes blamed for each of the three deaths. It’s inevitable not because the father’s old, one of them is timid and doesn’t have the disposition for war, and the final one gets run down by uncaring army men, but rather because she’s cursed. She must be possessed. The seance at the end is fucking horrifying. I’ve read things that describe it as documentary-like, but i don’t really see it. It has a nightmare like quality; high contrast black-and-white with dramatic chiaroscuro lighting and dramatic tracking of the well-mapped terrain of the confined brothel. The woman beckon men from a “showcase” section that’s literally wooden bars - making them look like they’re imprisoned. At the excoriated, it gets really surreal with POV shots as she’s being prodded and beaten with a stick by the mystic dude and chased by robed followers waving palms.

Sitting on a cool $70ish. That’s like two sick nights out at the bar.

For the rest of us, we bought the region b studiocanal Melville box set.

Shall We Dance (1937)- Mark Sandrich
First Astaire-Rodgers I've seen and it blew me away. The pure beauty that's contained in their dance routines leave me at a loss for words.
Image
Shenandoah (1965)- Andrew V. Mclaglen
Dragged a bit in places, but overall I liked it.
Image
Shoah (1985)- Claude Lanzmann
A shattering masterpiece.
Image
Sister Street Fighter (1974)- Kazuhiko Yamaguchi
Image
Sister Street Figther: Hanging By A Thread (1974)- Kazuhiko Yamaguchi
Image
Return Of The Sister Street Fighter (1975)- Kazuhiko Yamaguchi

Enjoyed all of these, but the first one is by far my favourite of the trilogy.

This ruled.

Love and Peace (Sion Sono, 2015)

A movie about a born loser who gets a pet turtle and then... well less than 20 minutes into this movie things just go off the rails in ways I couldn't imagine. It's a fantasy/farce and also spans about 3 or 4 different subgenres at different times. And it's essentially a Family Friendly movie. I was totally unaware of the b-plot of this film, I had the outline of the main character and turtle, but I was just not prepared for what else is going on here. There's a twist at the third act mark here (in the b-plot) that I didn't see coming and I'm sure I muttered something out loud, like, "oh my god" and I guess I have some weird admiration for the choice. I wouldn't recommend this movie to anyone exactly, it's not one of his better ones, but... it's so full of feeling and it actually moved me a bit in spite of its sappiness.

Bedlam (Robson, 1946)

It's not up there with the last two Robson/Lewton movies I watched (it's more traditional feeling, and like, structured like a normal fucking movie) but it's got KARLOFF and he's great as always and Anna Lee is good in the lead. A period piece set in England bout the frickin... asylums. It's not really got ~atomsphere~ though, the asylum is shadowy or whatever but eh. Entertaining enough... a solid "above average"... but barely a horror movie.

A Face in the Crowd (Kazan, 1957)

I've had this on a watchlist for years probably for Being Relevant To My Interests. An dark and cynical riff on the power of television for propaganda and in that respect it's essentially as accurate and relevant today as it was then. My favorite touch was the part where the TV host and scion of the common man rolls footage of him taking the stuffy senator hunting to show his audience He's One Of Us... I mean shit.

so i've had both Moonlight and Call Me By Your Name downloaded for a while and put off both just cause I'm worried about like, scenes of homophobic violence or whatever. knowing nothing about either except that Moonlight seems a bit "heavier".

can someone gimme the like levels of these compared to something like Tangerine where it's sorta there but nothing too unwatchable?

just realized i am running out of space on my HD and need to either watch all these movies or delete em lol (not just these 2, they're just the ones i'm most worried about being tough watches)

I'd like to watch that one again, it left a major impression. I feel like Elia Kazan at some point in the mid-50s became 'on one' -- Baby Doll, Wild River, & Splendor in the Grass particularly. In each instance the level of melodrama is pushed into a kind of knowing absurdity. By some accounts his '60s work is just as good, but I haven't seen any yet.

my favorite work of hers might be 'portrait of a young girl at the end of the 60s in brussels', but yeah otherwise... yeah. those ones exactly.

I think a lot about the full german title of 'effi briest'.
