Two Rode Together (1961)- John Ford
Loved it.
Image
The Age Of Innocence (1993)- Martin Scorsese
Heartbreaking. Great performances all around. Easily an instant favourite.
Image
Bram Stoker's Dracula (1992)- Francis Ford Coppla
Found it quite enjoyable. Loved how visually striking it was.
Image
Dog Day Afternoon (1975)- Sidney Lumet
Rewatch. Really loved this. Pacino's frantic performance is brilliant, and Cazale is compelling as always.
Image
The Long Kiss Goodbye (1996)- Renny Harlin
Rewatch. Still love this a great deal.
Image
The Birds (1963)- Alfred Hitchcock
Loved it. Found it genuinely chilling in some parts, particularly the final attack. Loved the fairly desolate ending.

portrait of a lady on fire - don't usually like this contemporary style of film making but this one has stuck with me gonna ponder how this affects the official 2019 SGP rankings for a bit more also wanted to give a shout out to how it presented the servant and countess while mostly avoiding servant and countess tropes plus you cast gina piccolapupula you get an a+ from me and of course 'do all lovers feel they’re inventing something' and that ending thoToggle Spoiler

Image
the apartment - one of Sweet Mother Pectin's favorite movies of all time finally got around to watching it not thrilled with jack's performance and i struggle with 'adult contemporary' classics i can appreciate their historical significance in context but it can be difficult for me to properly account for its greatness because i wasn't of that time to appreciate the evolutionary leap it made for its time and is that something i should even be responsible to consider or should i let the leonard maltins of the world clue me in for example i appreciate 'night of the hunter' 'bringing up baby' and 'make way for tomorrow' for their timeless nature but i have less appreciation for movies like 'being there' 'network' or 'the apartment' but then paradoxically i will scold anyone and think less of them for not appreciating how revolutionary 'pulp fiction' was to contemporary american film sometimes i wish i was born in 1900 and therefore could watch every canonical film in its historical context

abuse (1983)
Image

semi-autobiographic tale about a documentary film maker making a documentary develops a relationship with a 14 year old subject. i think it's only available by vhs to this day, downloaded it off of passthepopcorn freeleech. feels very proto-gregg araki (highest praise i can offer to any film). it wasn't like, a pleasant watch, but it was definitely one of the best films of it's ilk i've seen and was perfect for the melancholy mood we've been in for the past couple days. i need to get back on the grind of watching more classic queer cinema. the directors film "buddies" is supposedly the first film to have ever been made about the AIDS epidemic. been meaning to watch that one for years and this definitely bumped it up pretty high on the queue.

Image
midori (1992)

combo of watching the above film and reminiscing about going deep on anime 'video nasties' in the action film thread lead me to revisit this... idk i've frequently kinda joked about it as being like this achewood strip in film form or "marilyn manson's favorite anime". plot is like "flower girl runs away home to circus where she experiences more abuse, briefly finds 'love', things get worse from there". like yeah literally this achewood strip.

Image

but i dunno, i kinda find some value in that as someone that feels like nothing good ever happens sometimes. it's such a labor of love too, lovingly hand drawn over the course of 5 years. it's still a personal favorite film for me / one of those things that's super inspirational for anyone that wants to make your own film. watching those two films back to back definitely got some morose feelings off of our chests. been a weird weekend.

Demonlover (2002) - Amazing 00s cyber thriller about corporate espionage / rival companies trying to buy henti studios and websites? Chloe Sevigny and Gina Gershon are both in this. Can't stop thinking about this one!!! Love when oiliver assayas is in this bizarro mode. feels like him trying to make mulholland drive lol. also has rly good vox lux vibes.

I like when Gina Gershon flips past like Suicide Club and a Bush speech too. I need to watch more Assayas but both demonlover and personal shopper have like unparalleled good references to other media in them.

I also like how elliptical demonlover is it like barely feels like it has a plot before it all comes together at the end. I think I mentioned this in here when I rewatched it a few months ago but it erally encapsulates what 'night bus' meant to me in 2010 more than most other movies.

the Bush speech was wild.

have u seen Irma Vep? I watched that last week and its my fav Assayas. like how you can pair demonlover and personal shopper you can def pair Irma Vep and Clouds of Sils Maria. I wish he'd go back to this style of filmmaking tho but maybe its just a late 90s/early 00s aesthetic.

I watched American Beauty last night, the first time I've seen something with Kevin Spacey in it since he was confirmed as a pychopath.

It's funny to watch the movie now because aside from Kevin Spacey being awful, the movie has just not aged well and it's weird to watch something that was legitimately impactful to me seem so poor now. Like it's shallow idea of "You think suburbs are great but the are BAD underneath the VENEER" and how much life Annette Benning put into a shit character. Like if Lester Burnham is allowed to have inner thoughts about how this life is "actually shit" and then not give Carolyn Burnham any inner thoughts almost seems woman-hating.

But then also, like it's funny to remember how sad I was that Lester dies, how interesting a character I thought he was when really he's a piece of shit (Just divorce dude!), and how I actually thought the floating bag was a pretty moment.

And then there's the whole Kevin Spacey playing an old person perving on underage people to put the topping on.

Also look how long the fucking wiki page is: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_Beauty_(1999_film)

yeah when she has the fight with gershon and everything just flips is what reminded me of the switch in mulholland drive a lot and how most of the characters that were established basically became new peopleToggle Spoiler

I think I drunkenly watched Irma Vep after downloading it from a Karagragra freeleech like 10 years ago. I like it but I also remember nothing about it. I almost watched Clouds of Sil Maria immediately after we double featured shopper/demonlover but decided to put some distance... Kinda in the mood for his style of film at the moment... might throw one of those on after work.

American Beauty is up there with like Crash and Green Book as the worst best picture winners. It's legitimately surreal when I remember it won Best Picture.

I think Crash was the first movie I was completely aware of it being a bad movie when it won best pitcture, that or Shakespeare in Love whichever was first.

I've never really been TOO discerning with movies though, I generally love a Fun one over a Good one

The Italian Job (Collinson, 1969)

A really fun and absurd movie. I love the mafia dudes in this. I love Michael Caine breaking into the jail toilet.

Image
The Executioner (Berlanga, 1963)

Pretty good black comedy. Generally delivers on the premise.

Image
Until the End of the World (Wenders, 1991)

It's been on my want to watch list for a long time but I'm glad I waited long enough for the full restored cut to be available. It's a master work of course, how could it not be. I could watch the whole thing straight through again right now if I had the time. I liked the part when they all sang Days. that was nice.
