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)

Moonlight has intense scenes of violent bullying but otherwise isn’t so bad

As I recall the only violence in CMBYN is done to a peach, or possibly a nectarine.

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.

i think about effi briest a lot.

i'm in the middle of a chantal akerman retrospective and, to me at this moment, her best films are in order: news from home, les rendez vous d'anna, jeanne dielman, toute une nuit, hotel monterey, d'est. thank u for listening

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'.

nope!


Thought more about this and I think you should at least check out Vagabond, I think you might appreciate that one. Also maybe Le Bonheur and One Sings, the Other Doesn’t (probably my fav).

Also, what about Chabrol? I feel like he may be up your alley, I’ve only seen La Ceremonie but that’s p good.

tearjerker, up there with paris is burning as one of my favorite youth culture documentaries ever. it's a bummer that this one doesn't have the same renown as the first two but it's certainly less of an easy sell on a pure entertainment level. i really wish penelope spheeris could get funding to do documentaries again.

I love The Last Picture Show. You should watch Texasville. It's actually way better than its reputation I think.
