"the beach bum"
first half an hour is fine, the rest of the film was really boring and redundant, ended up hating the main character.
the reflection on poetry/artistic genius/life experiences as a source of artistic creativity made me think of patterson

I've had this lined up for ages. Love Foolish Wives, but the four hour running time and prospect of a lot of it being still images keep it on the shelf. I'm sure I'll love it.

L'Atalante (1934)- Jean Vigo


I'd go so far as to call it a 10/10. One of the most amazing movies I've seen these last few years.

I only watched the 2hr version, not the 4hr reconstruction so I probs missed out on a lot. But I'd highly recommend the 2hr version Pris, it's worth its weight in gold, its one of the greatest films I've seen this year in terms of old stuff.

O-bi, O-ba: The End of Civilization (Szulkin, 1985)

There's the clear inspiration of silent film here, down to the nearly constant blue tinting, it's a solid eastern bloc science fiction entry if you're into the genre/aesthetic though not one so great I would recommend it to people who are not. It's too fully sardonic to really be a black comedy, set underground after a nuclear war has ended the damn world, somehow I'm reminded more of Day of the Dead here than anything else. As one of those, The Final Breakdown of a Desperately Clinging Post-Apocalyptic Society, it has things that work well, and some threads that don't. Great set design, well photographed, a little thin.

Hobson's Choice (Lean, 1954)

Threw this on to entertain my mom, who always will deal with anything remotely upstairs/downstairs and/or British parlor. Lean did every kind of movie and fucked up little. There's even a touch of the supernatural in here, which reminds me that I watched and liked Blithe Spirit too.

what do you like about noir? i feel like that list is more of a "films that made an impact" list.

film noirs are the greatest thing to happen to film but are so often pigeonholed.

No, that's a pretty typical and basic list of neo-noirs.

mesh, what is even the point of making a post like that?

personally, I've never seen the late show, so I got something out of it

sleigh, I would start with chinatown, the long goodbye, & night moves if you haven't seen any of those

if you're looking for films that fit the neo-noir subgenre that are not on that list of (mostly seminal, as futurist pointed out) films, there are many of us who would be more than happy to make some recs

I have a soft spot for The Missing Person with Michael Shannon and Amy Ryan from 2009. It's hyper stylized almost to the point of parody and it has a twist that is so ridiculous it almost works. so it will depend on your tolerance for those aspects. but if you wanna see Michael Shannon act like a 1940s private eye it's pretty damn fun.

I like the missing person. afaik no other film talks about the idea of someone using 9/11 to vanish/go into hiding, and I thought that was coolToggle Spoiler

never seen a flash of green. thx for the rec

last night i watched donna haraway's Storytelling for Earthly Survival

it was great to hear her talk and just see her animus but the filming/editing was noticeably weak and amateurish. didn't mind that much though since it meant the motor was the content of her ideas and her kinda manic articulation. a great bed time watch. do wish the visuals were less goofy at certain moments, but i appreciated others lol (see image above)

You sure that's the title? Not coming up with anything on IMDB.

Also, if you liked Missing Persons I def recommend checking out Buschel's other films. That's the only Noir he's done, but they're all great.

I think A Flash of Green was a PBS American Playhouse production. (and I dont know what that means lol.)

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0087267/

oh yeah I'd love to see Buschel's other films. I seem to remember people here recommending Glass Chin.

Now I'm not sure. I read futurist like he was saying that that list was not noirs or something. What was he saying, anyways? Sorry?

edit: also "basic" is not pejorative in my world, if that helps
