I watched Get Carter and he does push a guy into a toilet in that. Also reminded me of the phrase “drunk as lord” which I’m fond of.

Just finished watching Arrebato. The protagonist is a little dreadful but it’s a great addiction movie. Kinda forgot how much I like movies that walk the line between experimental and narrative.

career opportunities (1991)

i only watched this because it was filmed in a target like 10 minutes from my house. everytime it cut to a romantic montage sequence the adult contemporary soundtrack made it feel like the room. people used to really like to post pictures of jennifer connelly's boobs from this movie on the internet a lot huh. this is kinda like john hughes machina in how anachronistic it feels as an interpretation of 90s pop culture to someone that seems like they should solely exist in the 80s. it was really dumb but i dunno. i like looking at 90s retail establishments so i had fun.

heavy metal (1981) is truly one of the dumbest films of all time. like, it starts off as a short that posits the idea "what if andrew dice clay was a taxi driver in a tech-noir film" and only gets stupider from there. i can't say i didn't enjoy watching it though. i remember watching this in the hipinion movie series relatively vividly despite having drank an entire 12 pack of steel reserve. i kept closing my eyes at the boobie scenes. like a literal half of the film is either gratuitous nudity or bad sex scenes. i remember glosstime typing the phrase "is whips still closing her eyes?" a few times. jeremy wanted to buy a saturn to play panzer dragoon. the only good parts of this film are the parts that look like moebius/panzer dragoon pretty much. makes you wonder what an alt comix movie with this budget could've done if it weren't explicitly catering to the whims of 12 year old boys. this film is absolute dogshit but i can't lie it definitely cheered us up.

i can't figure this out - sometimes on plex i can't get sound to work on 1080p rips, but it works on 720. seems to be a difference in the Mbps, but i can't seem to find any solution other than downgrading to 720.

I've been thinking about this movie since I saw you tweeting about it and it makes me think like, what was that era like when you'd be in this situation where "Okay, here's the one example of the thing that's picking up the common threads of a bunch of things I'm into an synthesizing them and it's my aesthetic and it's the only example of it, and also it happens to suck." Like it's just so ineptly executed, it's like it can't even identify its own appealing features. Does this still happen to people?

i know exactly what you're talking about, but i can't recall the specific examples. i guess i thought that about aronofsky's black swan upon watching it the first time but i realized i actually enjoy that movie when rewatching it last year

anyway


down and dirty duck (1974)

this was like, a no budget fritz the cat ripoff that was made immediately afterwards. despite the title, the duck doesn't play much of a role. it's about your generic incel protagonist trying to get laid. most of it's animation budget goes to freudian sex symbolism that like, was already dated and cliche by 1974. it's peppered with some pretty decent tolerable power pop that i think was made by the filmmakers themselves.

i've always thought of r crumb's criticism of bakshi's adaptation of fritz as being a "methinks doth thou protest too much" thing. there's not a whole lot separating the two artists. but. when crumb talked about bakshi's film being like, ridiculously meanspirited and horny without a shred of redeeming factor, you could apply those words to this film without much of an effort. keep in mind i don't even LIKE fritz the cat. even the horniness... well one of my best friends, who's a furry, had her sexual awakening to the bathtub scene in fritz the cat. there's no analogous scene in this film. it even fails at being meaningfully horny, on top of all the sexism and racism and transphobia in it having literally no cover. the film ends with the incel protagonist realizing that the duck has boobs and a vagina and fucking them to relieve them of their sexual frustration. i think the duck is nonbinary. is this this representation i've heard so much about? there's a cop that transcends into a penis car. like revolutionary girl utena. or family guy. take your pick.

as someone with a major soft spot for low budget films that manage to do cool things with that budget... some of the scenescape collage animation is cool... but again it's stealing that directly from fritz the cat. so eh.

i kept wondering how belladonna of sadness would've gone over had it been imported over to america around this time. i think it probably could've done well, honestly.

Fritz the Cat is really the ultimate Bad Vibes movie, like who even wanted the second half of that movie with the Nazi rabbit bikers who torture and rape the horse, it's absolutely the most misanthropic thing ever because it's not even fun to watch at any point

Lunch Break (Lockhart, 2009)
watched this with phill niblock - four full flutes. i know this wasn’t the director’s intention but i found it kinda homoerotic. all those masculine men being in such intimate space eating, reading and talking together, reduced to their physical bodies and movements, the director and the one other woman almost utterly ignored, etc. all while the camera slowly goes deeper into a narrow corridor. and navy ships are pretty gay environments, aren’t they? nice little details everywhere, i liked it

there was a trailer for come and see (1985) before the screening of cats (2019) we went to at our local theater.

it's weird that we've probably gone to dozens and dozens of theater screenings but we both remarked the only other repertory screening we've been to where like, people knew what they were getting into, that still produced as many walkouts was when we saw trash humpers (2009) last year.

movie is psychic warfare. just like, that panic at the disco "high hopes"/taylor swift "me!" decadent nihilist aesthetic taken to it's logical endpoint. the come and see trailer was oddly apropos. i don't understand the plot of it at all. it was great. glad it exists.

this reminded me of like, attempting to watch subbed shin-chan episodes, in that it's very clearly operating on a set of social signifiers that i'm completely lost in. supposedly every attempt at importing it into languages other hungarian failed???... i still basically thought it worked as a piece of slapstick animation tho. i didn't know, at all, what to expect going in. i kinda thought it was going to be something ludicrously horny like down and dirty duck/heavy metal going in and was pretty pleasantly surprised when it wasn't (despite, y'know, the fact that i'm specifically seeking that thing out lol)... like it's for 'adults' but it feels downright wholesome in retrospect. i dunno. i enjoyed it.

apparently the director/writer of down and dirty duck has a writing and direction credit on twice upon a time (1983)... which like. is one of the best films i've found digging for older american animation that's not explicitly for children. which honestly isn't that surprising when i think about it, i kept thinking of similarities in terms of general messiness, and it makes sense that a super super low budget version of that would look like down and dirty duck ultimately???? just funneled into a cheap fritz the cat knockoff for $$$ instead of like, something george lucas bankrolled to let them make a labor of love. also, twice upon a time had a much bigger cast of people working on it in general so... still took me aback seeing at first lol

both the tagline and the pullquote on the american dvd cover made me laugh real bad

Bigger Than Life (1956)- Nicholas Ray
Loved this. Mason slayed in his role, and Barbara Rush was really great also.
Image
Black Legion (1937)- Archie Mayo, Michael Curtiz
Really strong film, partly due to Bogart's powerful performance.
Image
Blithe Spirit (1946)- David Lean
Great stuff. Has some of the most witty insults ever uttered in any film I've ever seen.
Image
Bluebeard's Eighth Wife (1938)- Ernst Lubitsch
I can totally see why this is generally considered one of Lubitsch's weaker films, but I really adored this, especially for the twists and turns of the plot, the witty as usual dialogue, and the great performances all around.
Image
Branded (1950)- Rudolph Maté
Liked it.
Image
Carefree (1938)- Mark Sandrich
Loved it.
