watched hardcore (1979) and taxi driver (1975) tonight

i really didn't know anything about hardcore going in, outside of the fact that 8mm supposedly ripped it off. that's certainly true, but i don't think i was prepared for the whallop that it did on me. the constant dialogue the film is engaging with five point calvinism throughout was rly masterfully done. i like how it portrayed california as a whole. the ending is just the bleakest shit i've ever seen, with nobody learning anything. i certainly expected a better film than 8mm, but i didn't expect *that*. like, i really expected it to at least lean on cheap moralizing like a lot of films that deal with subject matter do but yeah no it avoids it at every turn. this is true of the other paul schrader directed films i've seen but again i loved the way it straddled the line btwn art film and b-movie. oh yeah both the licensed music (buck owens! neil young!) and jack nitzsche's minimal synthy score *chefs kiss*. it might be my favorite paul schrader dir credit i've seen so far. i put it up, as well as a bunch of other paul schrader films i had downloaded in the thing if anyone wants to grab it, certainly gets my recommendation.kinda want to hang up the poster in our apartment.

god i want to work as a clerk in a shitty porn store but also not have to wipe up cum.

taxi driver is wonderful beautifully elliptical captures the feel of insomnia better than any movie etc. it's taxi driver. i guess they're very thematically similar films, i liked the philosophical weightiness of hardcore, or at least i found it incredibly novel, whereas i more or less knew what to expect. i dunno i loved both of them. watch em.

i'm gonna have to chew on it for a bit. but it was definitely up my alley. whether or not i enjoyed it though i think it's a pretty special piece of work from a very weird time in american culture.

Y'all gotta check out Packard's latest movie Fatal Pulse/Night Pulse. It's a masterpiece. One of the best of the decade.

my son watched it and afterward his mind was blown and he was all "...society?" and I was very proud

a combination of internet takes puts it at a cross between snowpiercer and the first raid with parasite undertones and that sounds about right


the premise of this was really interesting, even if it was full of holes and unexplained mysteries, which honestly adds to its charm. super gory and screamy though, so be warned

I should not have watched this after first day of wfh. It's pretty decent so far although I'm fairly disturbed.

today's the final day of ann arbor film fest. they are live-streaming the festival winners at 3pm and 5pm EST:

https://vimeo.com/showcase/6900338

my fave of the fest so far is probably the giverny document by ja'tovia gary.

Image

Image

Image

THE GIVERNY DOCUMENT (2019) Filmed on location in Harlem, USA and in Claude Monet's historic gardens in Giverny, France, The Giverny Document is a multi-textured cinematic poem that meditates on the safety and bodily autonomy of Black women.


my guess is they will show her piece sometime during today's presentations. it really is spectacular.

some trailers:

E-Ticket (Liu, 2019)
link: https://vimeo.com/339355898
best short on day 1 of the ann arbor ff. liu calls this a “retelling of dante’s inferno” which isn’t immediately apparent but on a rewatch it does look like different parts are supposed to represent the different circles of the inferno. crosses appear in the composition of certain frames throughout and the colors evoke the stained glass windows of a cathedral. very cool. can’t imagine how long it took him to make this. i only saw one other short of his before this which i thought was meh but i'm sold on this guy now


Loved this. I dunno if you tuned in for most of the Ann Arbor Film Festival but I'd appreciate any more reccs! Hopefully someone on Karagarga has been capturing.
