There were definitely some lovely moments, but lots of shots where--and i don't know if it was just the presentation in my theater or in the material--it looked like someone just dragged the "shadows" slider in Aftereffects all the way to the right. lots of digital noise and really unnatural detail in the shadows.


There were a couple instances where honestly it sort of felt like one of those interactive “4D” type things you go to at Disney world or something

i have not seen long day's journey into night so i am sorry to break up the conversation but i would be very grateful if someone were to point me in the direction of this db? i'm not sure if i can pm yet? can i receive them? I don't know.

anyway i'm gonna echo recommendations of apichatpong even though i again have not seen the movie you're all talking about. syndromes and a century is one of my favorite films of all time.

the last movie i watched was public enemies and i thought it was good, undeserving of the trashing it seems to get everywhere else. the action scene that goes through the woods is absolutely incredible in particular.

looking at screenshots without the leaden acting or cryptic dialogue might be more entertaining, mondrary

This is a lot of b-movies, exploitation, but also surprisingly a lot of classics. Only downside is a slow download site.

I was a somewhat disappointed by Long Days Journey too. I think naturemorte has overstated the pastiche a little bit, I think the director does have ideas of his own that he’s built on from the previous movie, which I loved, but it feels like a little bit of an immature work, and that’s why the reference bits stand out as pretty :eyeroll: , especially that shot that rips off the Stalker ending. At the same time though, I just love Art house movies, they make me feel OK. I’m pretty down with the long take and the ending... relishing in the power of cinema is almost always my thing. But by far my biggest problem with the movie is that the protagonist is just not compelling, and it’s so.... hetero. The soundtrack and the narration... pretty bad. Still, I like some of the bits of dialogue and thinking about the movie and movies. Also, subtitles disrupt the illusion of 3D in a pretty big way.

Watched Blackhat. By far Michael Mann's worst film. Ridiculous and irredeemable.

I was just thinking the other day that I'd like to see a new film about hacking. I loved Hackers when i was a teenager. I guessed Blackhat would be as you described

I watched my first Hitchcock movies last night, Rear Window and Psycho. I really loved them both, but especially Rear Window. I've always stayed away from movies of that era for some dumb reason and I have a mind to amend that. I remember seeing Vertigo years ago, but have no recollection of it, so I'll be watching that very soon. What other Hitchcock films are essential? Also anything Hitchcock-adjacent in terms of vibe.

Based on that still alone, I will definitely be seeking out The Killing, too.

Shadow of a Doubt (1943), Notorious (1946) and North by Northwest (1959) are three of my favorites. But there's at least a dozen more Hitchcock movies that are also reccomended.

Also: Night of the Hunter (1955), The Pawnbroker (1964), Key Largo (1948), Odd Man Out (1947), Seconds (1966), Rififi (1955), Les Diaboliques & The Wages of Fear (1955 & 1953, Cloutzot is referred to as the French Hitchcock), Touch of Evil (1958)

You can really tell how influential The Killing was on basically every heist movie since.

Or maybe it's not the Ur heist, but there's so much good stuff in it

Dangerous Liaisons (1988) and Gosford Park (2001) - Both perfectly charming movies until they are not. Ultimately, they're enjoyable but thin, both overlong and overreliant exercises in costuming and setting (despite how much I really enjoyed these aspects). I thought Malkovich being a devious pervert for two hours would be enough for me, but sadly it was not.

saw this 20 years ago and tbh it didn't make much of an impression. it holds up really, really well. def my favourite movie of hers. soundtrack goes so hard, the cast is stacked, crazily confident debut. that one guy was also in the phantom menace in the same year? ok. my friend thinks wes anderson should owe this movie some royalties, i'm not sure, but i get it

and i like a movie where the mysterious stranger is 5 people

I like Virgin Suicides waaaay better than anything of Wes Anderson's I've seen but Rushmore came out a year before it. I don't really see that much similarity there, in any case.
