norikos dinner table is my favorite movie of his but he's made a lot and they're all generally high quality. i'll dap whispering star as being great film. i really loved "love and peace" as being his own version of a pixar film too.

i dunno he's made a ton of them. love exposure kinda has all the elements of his other films jam packed into his 4 hour runtime and it more or less just depends on which of those elements you'd want to see honed in on and made into it's own thing.

huh i just watched my first sono this week (antiporno) and looooved it. excited to do a deep dive although i don't know if i can watch anything that intense without a 3-4 day break in between.

inspired by The Suspense is Killing Us podcast I watched Breakdown (1997, Jonathan Mostow). Definitely one of the more watchable 90s mid-budget action thrillers. Doesn't try for anything complicated, satisfying suspense, and it's got M.C. Gainey babeyy.

it's funny how many 90s films are about yuppie couples. kurt russell literally has a line describing his wife's benetton sweater. the most recent hollywood film i can remember watching that featured contemporary yuppies was... game night?

I just watched Bleak Moments, Nuts in May and Abigail’s Party over the past couple weeks. Absolutely loved the first two especially. Is there other stuff from Leigh’s early period that’s like those?

i'm not so great at formulating coherent thoughts on movies right after watching them but these both thrilled me, Marseille especially, in terms of the degree to which they trust their audience and make huge leaps of context while remaining hyper-focused on their anchoring characters and their interior lives
i'm really stoked to have found out about Schanelec just recently thanks to the Lincoln Center retrospective (despite not being in NY) and kg freeleech, can't wait to watch more

i watched the dreamed path six times and thought about it for like 3 months straight

the retrospective is great stuff. only the earlier stuff is not on kg but pretty much sets the foundation for what becomes 'her formal style'; there's a few really neat sequences here and there. i do think those 3 are her best, but as great as marseille is, i think 2016's the dreamed path is where she starts going into hyper-godmode and does stuff no one else is really thinking to do

i've got The Dreamed Path lined up, and reading a bit more about it and her and glad to see I wasn't off-base at all with my initial thoughts. honestly the only other director I can think of who asks the viewer to intuit and bridge such wide narrative chasms is Lynch, so it's lovely to see it done in such a detached cerebral Bressonian way. was thinking of Hou a lot in terms of just the way the camera sits back and watches scenes play out, and what is left out of frame or just slightly cut off, I guess mirroring the way so many things are left out of the plot and exposition

the scene at the end of Passing Summer where the camera pans across the tree-lined pathway outside the wedding just awed me

does anyone have subs for My Sister's Good Fortune?

boxing helena (lynch, 1993)
perfectly moronic. and oddly calming, despite the horrifying narrative conceit. the entire atmosphere feels lidded by lithium or something. great watch.

The Last Valley (1971) - Kind of an odd movie I feel. James Clavell directed and written, or more accurately adapted from a book by one j.B Pick. It's set in southern germany during the thirty years war (1618-1648) and stars Omar Sharif as a teacher called Vogel (ouin, sérieux, vos gueules....little french joke here, never mind me) fleeing the ravages of the war and Michael Caine as, of course, a soldier (he played a soldier a lot in those days), captain of a band of mercenary (and, in fact, in the film only ever known as The Captain), who both will happen upon an isolated village in a valley that has been untouched by the war. The Captain's first impulse will be to loot the village and rape its women, like his troops have been doing to all of them (village or women), but Sharif don't like it and will interpose himself between the villagers and the mercenaries as a mediator to convince the latter to just let the war go on without them and settle in that valley for at least the winter and live with the villagers. Tensions will mostly occur because of religious matters, the town is catholic, the mercenaries are made up of Catholics but also protestants AND atheists (notably, the Captain, who like anyone who has witnessed enough war has become dubious about the existence of a god..). And it's mostly what all of the dramatic tension and moments will revolve around.The village's priest will be a major problem to contend with. The captain will have a thing with a witch (actual, well in that she prays to satan, she doesn't do anything supernatural otherwise) who happens to be the lover of the town's mayor which will also cause tensions. Truth be told, I'm not sure i liked it much, for one Clavell's direction is as journeyman as they come save for a tiny handful of shots (i mean for fuck sake considering the shooting location you could have done so much, though i suspect some shots had to be careful not to shoot the modern village that was surely around or nearby), and yet I felt compelled to watch it to the end still so i don't know what i think really. I will say this...i really wanted to live in that beautiful valley. It was shot in Trins, Austria.

My screenshots are small, the copy i watched was one i got off karagarga (probably anyway) circa 2005 and that i never got around to watching until now, quality standards were lower then. Or mine were anyway...

So I’m a huge sucker of period dramas. Pride & Prejudice is one my favorite books and I’ve seen every cinematic version and will rank them if you ask. A Room With A View is one of my favorite films and dang if Lucy Honeychurch doesnt rule.

Also recently rewatched my atff. I still remember the wonder in my eyes watching this the first time, feeling like the wonder in Alexander's eyes throughout the first third, and wondering if that was Bergman's goal.

watched The Dreamed Path last night. thank you for the recc, spix + thread. what a stunning movie. like, transient and obtuse but also, subtly, very plot heavy and gripping and expository in its own singular way. of course it took me a while to figure out what was going on, with the time jump etc.Toggle Spoiler I even thought at one stage that Theres was Kenneth's dying mother, as a young woman, coming to him in dream. but of course that's not the case. truly fascinating stuff. I've been reading a lot about it online and haven't seen this mentioned anywhere - it is heavily suggested that Kenneth commits suicide at the end, yes?Toggle Spoiler

will probably watch another schenelec tonight

watched the errol morris stephen bannon film from a few years ago. idk i'm generally down for his thing and wouldn't necessarily reject him doing a stephen bannon film on principle. i liked both his abu ghraib film and his donald rumsfeld film which it seems like a lot of people didn't. but the thing is is that i've already read and consumed enough about bannons stupid ideology that watching a film about him done in the stock errol morris style just seemed completely pointless. to the point of self parody. and like. i realize this is consistent with his style of filmmaking in general, but the lack of interrogation about a figure that so much of the media props up as being a True Right Wing Intellectual definitely grated me. feel like this would've benefitted from being released a few years later, like both standing operating procedure and the unknown known were.

also death wish (1974) is really just like... well it felt to me like a completely artless version of "straw dogs" in a similar vein to how the first friday the 13th is a soulless copy of the first halloween? that shouldn't have hit me by surprise but i found it a remarkably boring watch having seen already in that vein. i would much prefer to watch the 80s sequels i've seen, cuz they at least coherently commit to a terrible ideology rather than this film, which just kinda wiggles around for it's entire 90 minute runtime. it's interesting that both death wish ii and ms. 45 came out in the same year. one, hardening all of the bad parts of this film, the other excising them and actually making something out of it.

Rewatched some stuff over the past few days.
Image
3 Women (1977)- Robert Altman
One of my fav Altmans. Duvall and Spacek own in their performances.
Image
A Patch Of Blue (1965)- Guy Green
Really loved this. Poitier, Hartman, and Winters all shine in their roles.
Image
Red Beard (1965)- Akira Kurosawa
Felt this to be a bit overlong, but will probably give it another shot one of these days.
Image
The Bad Sleep Well (1960)- Akira Kurosawa
This slayed hard. One of my faves.
