Does Woody Allen hate bonus materials? I'd love to hear some commentaries from him, but I think I've read that he doesn't like talking about his work.

This, and (if I recall correctly) he routinely includes in his contracts language prohibiting any special features on home video releases of his films except for the official trailer.

This movie looks fucking amazing! The famous opening crane shot notwithstanding, the entire thing is gorgeous. It's probably my favorite Orson Welles acting performance too, he's just great in it. Charlton Heston as a Mexican is laughably bad though.

Aw man.

I don't want to give a shit about the Silent Hill 2 movie (3D. 3 FUCKING D!!!), but then I heard Malcolm McDowell's in it.

But then I went looking to see if there was any more word about it, and apparently Marcus Mumford has also been cast.

Just watched Jean-Pierre Melville's Le Samouraď . It's a pretty terrific '60s French film noir. it's quiet, subtle, and very stylish. I'd almost call it a thriller or a suspense film, but it's a bit too laid back.

I haven't seen it, but isn't Ghost Dog kind of a remake of that?

Drinkey McDrinkerstein
08-14-2011, 05:23 PM
According to Wikipedia, yes...but from my experience with the two films only in the very loosest, broadest definitions of the word, "remake." I suppose it's "inspired" by it. Besides a quote in the beginning of the film from the Bushido, Le Samouraď makes no reference to Japan or Samurais. It's more just portrayed in the sense of how the killer conducts himself. It very much combines elements of a police procedural, a chase film, and a gangster piece, but all in a very cool, 60s French way, and all a bit minimalist, at that. Ghost Dog is pretty much a caricature of everything is pulls from (this is necessarily a negative comment). I do want to watch that again, it's been several years now.

I saw Tree of Life this weekend. I knew very little about this movie going in but heard many people say how much they liked it and that it was leaving the theaters soon so I watched it at a little art house movie theater in Beverly Hills on Saturday afternoon. I thought it was beautifully filmed. I loved all the growing up scenes, it really captured what growing up as a boy was like. I don't believe I have seen Jessica Chastain in a movie before and she was superb in this movie and added to its beauty. I would say it was the best movie I have seen this year.

Friday evening I watched an Ayn Rand documentary on Netflix. I knew very little about her and saw it was only 75 minutes so I gave it a go. The sound quality was somewhat poor but considering all the intereviews were done pre 1980 I guess that couldn't be helped. It was pretty good. I admired her by the end despite her tea party views lol. A strong and inspiring women who's unconventional wisdom is still discussed and scrutinized to this day.

Firstly, I believe Gallo is serious about this plan - he said the same thing to my face when I talked to him at the Plastic Ono Band show last year. Assuming he isn't just posturing or doesn't change his mind, the only appropriate reaction is disappointment. No one with any real love of cinema would make a snide remark, nor regard this as anything but a huge loss to those who are bright enough to separate public persona from artistic merit.

That's a good question. Though I get the sense Gallo is pretty savvy financially, it's doubtful he can afford to repeatedly spend $500K out of pocket to make a film every few years. That plus the problem of finding actors who want to play in films that will do absolutely nothing for their careers are the possible tells that Gallo may not be entirely serious about this plan. But if he has other ways to obtain financing (possibly trading services on other projects that are intended for release), and if he's able to find good unknown actors who are willing to work with him under these conditions, then I wouldn't be surprised to see him work this way going forward.

"Pretentious" isn't how I would describe it. Selfish - certainly. Vindictive - by definition. Frustrating enough to drive me insane - I mean, I'm talking about paying him directly to see the damn movie. But I will never call something pretentious if it's actually important, and I have no doubt that any objective, adventurous viewer - i.e., the kind of person who doesn't judge Gallo's work by his behavior off-screen or in the press - would find some importance in Promises Written in Water and the other film(s) he's completed afterward.

Does Crispin Glover have his films booed during the opening credits?

schoolofruckus
08-15-2011, 09:18 PM
I haven't seen enough of his work to make a firm pronouncement, but if Rashomon and Seven Samurai are an accurate sampling of his career, I'm 100% serious. He's a compelling screen presence, but like so many of the performances in both of those films, he is the arch nemesis of naturalism. About 90% of every line, reaction and beat - from any of the actors - is so extrapolated and overcooked that I honestly struggle to see how someone can call either of these films great without MAJOR qualifications. Rashomon - Mifune's performance and the film as a whole - were almost unwatchable to me. Seven Samurai was much better, and he was actually the most compelling thing about it, but I couldn't stop thinking about Cage in his Bad Lieutenant or Face/Off mode. Would it have killed Kurosawa to instruct his cast to project average levels of angst rather than full-blown fucking hysteria at every single moment?

Alright, I think I'm prepared for the response to this.

buddy
08-15-2011, 09:45 PM
I would see High and Low, or Stray Dog, if you haven't already, both are Mifune and Kurosawa collaborations. Mifune portrays a man who is distaught over paying a ransom to get a worker's son back in the former, and in the latter is a police officer who is frantic over losing his weapon, and trying to find it. I wouldn't say either is great, High and Low is the better of the two, but it shows Mifune turning himself inward, rather than a slightly over-the-top performance.

schoolofruckus
08-15-2011, 09:49 PM
Thanks for the tip. As Ran is by far my favorite of the three Kurosawas I've seen, I was leaning heavily toward Kagemusha for my next one. High and Low does sound pretty great though.

Mifune was less egregious in Seven Samurai than most of the supporting characters. The farmers were terribly cartoonish, especially in the early going. I get that there was a contrast with the samurai as well as an eventual transformation, but it could have been done much more subtly.

Mifune's recruitment scene was pretty low (and the basis for my Nic Cage comment - think Leaving Las Vegas) but otherwise I liked his bravura and thought it was wholly necessary. In Rashomon, on the other hand, I thought he should have been menacing, but I couldn't take him seriously in the slightest.

Apologies if this has been brought up in here already, but if you have an older copy of the film Sunshine on blu ray and are having issues with the PiP bonus track playing while you are trying to watch the film, you can call this number to get a replacement:

888-223-4369

The guy only asked for my name and address, so the chances of you calling and just getting a free copy are likely to be in your favor.

Cries and Whispers is among my favorite Bergmans. In some ways it is the ultimate horror film.

Horror? I'm intrigued. Netflix calls it "Cerebral." What makes it a horror film?

Last night I revisited Poltergeist and I have to say, that movie is more of a comedy than a horror. Everything happening to the house is hysterical, especially with the mom being so calm while showing the paranormal investigators the room with spinning furniture. Like, "Yeah, that's happening."

Drinkey McDrinkerstein
08-17-2011, 12:35 PM
Spielberg had an incredibly heavy hand in "producing" that one. It feels like he directed it. I absolutely love Poltergeist though. A huge part of the charm was the whimsy, excitement, and nonchalance the family has about the whole thing before everything goes batshit crazy.The second one however, as I remember it, is fucking terrifying. I probably haven't seen it in 15 years though. So much of that movie is forever ingrained in my head. I should revisit it.

EDIT: Netflix just asked me to rate Life During Wartime and THIS is what came next hahahaa

Happiness was hysterical. Though to call what Solondz did funny, you may get smacked, because there is nothing funny about pedophilia or rape or threats of rape and abuse through prank calling. Yet this movie sure made it seem like there was. The scene at the end with the dad and the son was uncomfortably hilarious.

Flipping through my Netflix Instant queue tonight in search of something short and light, I randomly settled on an early Scorsese flick, Boxcar Bertha. It was a fun enough little back country romp, but until the final scene was hardly indicative of what Scorsese would later accomplish in his career. The fact that Mean Streets came out a mere year after this is pretty hard to believe.

Yesterday I watch First Blood Part 1, The Incredible Hulk (the Edward Norton one), and Mad Max. The Hulk was a complete bore. However, on first watch of Rambo and Mad Max, I was kind of disappointed in that they didn't really hold up over time - but I figure that's because so many movies I've seen have subsequently been made based on their blueprints and it just made them seem kind of tired. Regardless, I'm watching First Blood Part 2 now.

I LOVE Boxcar Bertha! It's very much a Roger Corman movie though. He was already ready to do Mean Streets, which is very evident if you've seen his student film Who's That Knocking at My Door , which is totally a precursor. But Corman gave him his chance to do an actual first movie with Boxcar Bertha, which was very much a part of the Corman production wheelhouse.

From what I've read, Cassavetes told Scorsese to make something real after seeing Boxcar Bertha, which resulted in Mean Streets.

http://www.contactmusic.com/news.nsf/story/ridley-scott-to-direct-blade-runner-2_1240816



Ridley Scott To Direct Blade Runner 2

Ridley Scott, the acclaimed Oscar-winning filmmaker, has signed on to direct and produce a new instalment of his ground-breaking 1982 sci-fi thriller Blade Runner. According to Deadline.com, Scott will make the movie with Alcon Entertainment and producing partners Broderick Johnson and Andrew Kosove.
The producers gained control of the franchise earlier this year, but Scott has only recently committed to directing. It is currently unclear whether the filmmaker intends to make a prequel or a sequel to the original, loosely based on Phillip K. Dick's novel 'Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?' Another question concerns whether original star Harrison Ford will be involved in the project, or whether Scott will turn his attention to a younger actor. The original film was set in a dystopian Los Angeles in the year 2019 - Ford played blade runner 'Richard Deckard' assigned to hunt down the superhuman robots 'Replicants'. Although not an immediate commercial success, Blade Runner has since been heralded as an important movie in 20th century cinema for its stunning visuals and complex storyline. It will be the second time in recent years that Scott has revisited his past projects - he recently shot sci-fi flick 'Prometheus', loosely based on his 'Alien' franchise.
Blade Runner was nomination for two Academy Awards in 1983 for 'Best Art Direction - Set Decoration' and 'Best Effects, Visual Effects'.

Yeah, I produced a promo for Boxcar Bertha last year for MGM. Was doing research for the script and came across that bit with Cassavetes. Supposedly after screening Boxcar, Cassavetes put his arm around Scorsese and said "my boy, you've just wasted the last two years of your life." Scorsese was initially crushed, but eventually took it as a challenge to make something more personal.

The movie does have its merits, pretty entertaining. Plays as kind of campier, low-budget Bonnie and Clyde. Scorsese did credit Corman with teaching him the secrets of low-budget filmmaking that obviously paid off with Mean Streets. If you look at the list of filmmakers that got their first big break on Roger Corman films, it's pretty astounding. Off the top of my head: James Cameron, Jonathan Demme, Francis Ford Coppola, Peter Bogdanovich, John Sayles and Robert Towne. The list of actors is even larger if I recall.

You could just play these videos (http://nyerges.com/video/) - Autumnal was actually sampled by Malick during that sequence - and do the same thing. Or if you need a BluRay, the Stan Brakhage anthology from Criterion would probably do the trick.


I just finished watching most of the 2 disc anthology. There is some amazing shit in there. Really was impressed with the quick cutting and half the time I didn't know what the fuck I was watching but its definitely interesting. I think that there are alot of butterfly wings involved somehow.

Just wanted to thank you again for the recommendation.

Gummo had scenes that shocked me (the kids killing the cats), grossed me out (the kid in the tub eating spaghetti and a chocolate bar - AT THE SAME TIME!) and made me laugh really hard (the drunk shirtless guys beating the shit out of the chair in the kitchen).

Give Aguirre The Wrath of God another shot later on. I thought it was OK the first time I saw it, but I've come to love it on subsequent viewings. The fact that it was filmed on location in the Amazon jungle, with hardly any budget (I think Herzog stole a camera to film it) just makes it all the more realistic and riveting.

Tonight I watched two of Kubrick's early works available on Netflix Instant, The Killing and Killer's Kiss. They were both really great, especially The Killing. A very atypical narrative/timeline, but not at all hard to follow. One of the better endings I've seen in recent memory, too. And I could be crazy, but the guy at the beginning of Killer's Kiss rubbing oil on Davey before his fight looked an awful lot like Kubrick himself...

Its a good film, not a great one. It's hobbled by some confusing editing (not by design, its a very linear film) and a true-life story that's unfortunately really intriguing while being ultimately unsatisfying.

They filmed some of this in my neighborhood. I was out for a late night stroll with my girlfriend and my daughter and we stopped for maybe 15 minutes to watch the crew set up a scene where Hill's character runs up (or possibly down) a fire escape. Hill showed up just as we were about to leave and waved and smiled at my daughter, which was nice and friendly.

I saw that trailer a few weeks ago and remembered that night, and it occurred to me that I was in a position to ruin the making of that fucking movie and instead I stood by and did nothing.

Sorry, everyone. My fault.

(Perhaps I can make amends one day soon - I live in what feels like one of the most popular shooting neighborhoods in all of NYC. We've got a few studios nearby and there's a steady stream of film and television crews/trucks/etc...on my street and others within a fairly small radius. Next time I see something that looks awful I'll start filling balloons with pee.)

I randomly came across a blog discussing "contemplative cinema" the other day that compared a Lithuanian filmmaker named Sarunas Bartas to Tarkovsky (at least in the sense of their camera techniques). I had never heard of him before, but asked around as to what some of his best works are and was told to watch a film called Few of Us, which I watched tonight.

It was bleak as all hell, a story about a girl that for unknown reasons ventures to a mountainous area in Russia and what happens when she meets the people there. It was a viewing experience unlike any other I've had, in that in addition to the lush, drawn-out shots there is virtually no dialogue, which amazingly didn't detract from the film at all. It was very tense at times, and not much needed to be said conversation-wise to get the point across.

Ultimately, the Tarkovsky comparison doesn't hold much water, in that the thematic content of his films combined with the glorious camera techniques are really what makes those shots almost a full-on character in his works, and without any dialogue it's not really the same. The film itself was very, very effective, but a different style all in its own. I thought it was quite good, and look forward to delving into Bartas' catalog further. I'd be very interested to hear what Jared and Gabe have to say about this one.

I went to the Mitsuwa Market over the weekend to eat some Ramin & discovered the HQ Video store. Got myself a membership & rented the anime REDLINE for $2 (2 days)

It was every bit as awesome as I'd hoped it would be. I've been waiting for this one for quite some time & finding a copy to rent made my night. I wasn't sure it would be that great, but it's truly a visual feast. Forget the story. This film is all about the eye candy & sound design. I believe I read that it took 7 years to complete this picture. You can tell in every frame that this was a labor of love by director Takeshi Koike & writer Katsuhito Ishii. Koike was the key animator for many of Ishii's films, such as The Taste of Tea (which is in my top ten of the past decade & one of my all time favorites). You may also know his work from Ninja Scroll & World Record (arguably the best short in the Animatrix movie). Katsuhito Ishii is probably most known in these parts for working on the animated segment in Kill Bill vol 1. If you haven't seen some of his features though I highly recommend you check out Taste of Tea.

Basically, if you enjoyed any of the films I've mentioned up to this point then defintely check this one out.

I watched about thirty minutes of Lake of Fire - Tony Kaye's 2007 documentary about the abortion debate in America - this afternoon before passing out (shut up, I worked about 80 hours this past week and 17 alone on Friday).

i like the comic books and the books i read. Thought Momoa looked the part and he did a good job on Game of Thrones. It was playing at a theater that charged $4. A guy at my place of employment did the color work. my curiosity killed almost 2 hours of my time.

i figured they must have known they would be compared to the original and anything that sucked about this one was amplified by the excellence of the first. Bad music would play and just fill me with dread due to the awesomeness of the score from the first. The new one tries to be uber violent, but it's just violence for the sake of it. Why? Because the story is fucked and it's just pieces put together. Actors speak and it is one close up shot to the next, over and over. You got actors, let them act. When you cut chicken shit like that, makes me think they couldn't string together more than 10 seconds of thespian work. Movie made me think once again, Crom is fucking with me.

WOW. I just watched Walter Hill's The Driver and it's fucking great.
http://thisdistractedglobe.com/wp-content/uploads/2006/09/Driver.jpg

It's a loose adaptation of Melville's Le Samourai and turns it into a much grittier story of a getaway driver instead of a hitman. The police procedural are all replaced with heavy-hitting car chases and all the atmospheric fat is cut out. It's quintessential Walter Hill tough guy noir, before he started getting lazy.

Ryan O'Neal does a fantastic job as the quiet tough-as-nails guy that's the best there is at what he does, and Bruce Dern steals every scene he's in as the maniacal, obsessed detective. The screenplay is tight and to the point. The fights are quick and brutal, and the car chases are absolutely magnificent. This features some truly top notch stunt driving and cuts so perfectly between POV shots through the windshield, rear mirror, and wide angles to create some truly thrilling chase sequences. 1970s downtown Los Angeles at night provides a terrific location for these sequences as well.

Highly recommended for fans of noir, car chases, crime movies, and tough guy films. Would make an excellent double feature with Hill's earlier, previous getaway driver film The Getaway.

I watched about thirty minutes of Lake of Fire - Tony Kaye's 2007 documentary about the abortion debate in America - this afternoon before passing out (shut up, I worked about 80 hours this past week and 17 alone on Friday). I found it fairly compelling, but am I missing anything if I don't finish it? There's simply no way I'm going to change my feelings on this subject - which is that this is an issue on which each person determines his/her stance largely based on religious conviction (though there's one exception that's already appeared in the movie), and thus it's something the government needs to stay the fuck out of.

Is that inaccurate?

Probably not, but it's a very well-made doc if you watch the rest. Yeah, there is some grotesque footage of a tiny fetus being dissected after removal. Towards the last 30 minutes, a woman is shown going in for the procedure, being interviewed, etc, and then getting an abortion.

I didn't love Hedwig the first time I saw it, but I didn't hate it either. It's definitely a jumbled mess, but that's also part of its charm. It really is one of those movies you have to feel on a gut level or just not get at all. I like it because it's fun as hell, has some pretty great songs, it can be hysterical in parts, heartbreaking in others, and at its core is a very tender, humanistic tale that uses the grandiose conventions of myths to explore some complex emotions. Far from a perfect film, but that's fitting giving how far from perfect the characters are.

I'm pretty anxious for that to hit Blu-Ray.

Restless was easily the shittiest film Gus Van Sant has made in the last decade. It's not as oppressively quirky as it seemed like it could be, but it was a good example of a rookie screenwriter who churns out a cookie-cutter tearjerker and has NO fucking idea how to bring out the moderately-interesting qualities in his work. The lead actors are pretty appealing; I'm on my way to becoming a Mia Wasikowska fan, and Dennis Hopper's kid shows some potential as a screen presence when he's not mumbling like Napoleon Dynamite. But I have no idea how a filmmaker with such a strong personal voice could make something so thoroughly anonymous.

Read about that today before actually getting to see it (no youtube at work) and even though it's not a change that needed to be made AT ALL, it's not the worst change to the original trilogy. Hell, I was expecting it to be as melodramatic as the "noooo" scene in Revenge of the Sith. Yet people got more upset about this on the internet than actual stuff that matters and should be more upsetting (take your pick out of today's newspaper).

Completely off topic, while discussing this Star Wars matter with a friend, I came to the conclusion that if there is any movie that people should be upset about existing, look no further than The Godfather, Part III, a needless sequel in which nothing much actually happens of great consequence (other than the obvious in the end), adds dead weight to an otherwise amazing group of pictures, and to add salt to the wound, WAS NOMINATED FOR BEST PICTURE.

Oh, that's how he got to be friends with Linda Cardillini. She's in Super for like 45 seconds as a tiny supporting character. Actually, almost everybody in the movie is someone you would recognize or a friend of his of some kind. He comes off as an extremely likable person. And yeah, you have to work on some dreadful studio stuff to get people to respect and trust you enough to give you money to make your own stuff.

I watched two movies that i quite enjoyed yesterday.

The first was Night Moves
http://www.mattfind.com/12345673215-3-2-3_img/movie/e/o/z/night_moves_1975_580x452_528846.jpg

It's a fantastic piece of 1970s neo-noir that excels because of its want to dig into psyche and personal life of the hard-boiled detective as he becomes entangled in the mystery that is not what it seems (in and of itself very familiar for any private investigator story). It also helps a lot that Gene Hackman does such a stellar job in the role. He delivers one liners like no other and has such expressive body language. Even though Arthur Penn moves the story along fairly quietly, Alan Sharp's dialogue is so snappy that the film never feels dull, and allows for a lot of great contemplative moments.

The other I watched was The Hawk Is Dying
http://www.wildaboutmovies.com/images_3/HawkIsDyingMoviePoster325.jpg

This one is not what i expected at all, especially from the Netflix description and the sappy aftermarket poster they use on the website - not the shown above, but this one:
http://ia.media-imdb.com/images/M/MV5BMTM0MTI1NTQzMF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwNTYwNzY0MQ@@._ V1._SY317_CR4,0,214,317_.jpg

Anyway, on the surface level, plotwise it's a movie about an amateur falconer who after failing several times before, has caught a new hawk and is prepared to do whatever it takes to finally train a bird. But it's really a movie about a man with deep problems that he isn't willing to face and how obsessions can really test the limits of a person. There are a lot of vague character motivations all around, and some of the interactions throughout can be extremely frustrating. All of the characters in the film are pretty troubled, and the film's observation of people's ability to communicate with each other is pretty bleak. This was a film that was a lot more challenging than I expected, but it Giammatti really dives headfirst into the role and delivers and extremely strong performance. Michelle Williams and Michael Pitt are both good as usual, though both performances/characters are pretty puzzling and take a while to understand. Ultimately it's a haunting, unsettling, and dark character study of what might seem mundane at first, but offers a lot more once the layers begin to get peeled away.

I definitely learned some shit about the movies and the techniques that the directors use.

The way John Waters describes what the Wizard of Oz is about is priceless:

"Girl leaves drab farm, becomes a *** hag, meets gay lions and men that don't try to molest her, and meets a witch, kills her. And unfortunately-by a surreal act of shoe fetishism-clicks her shoes together and is back to where she belongs. It has an unhappy ending."

Anyways, the book is pretty short. You could probably knock it out in 8 hours.

That Aaron Horkey Jurassic Park one is fucking breathtaking though. Ugh.


ANYWAY I watched Cabaret for the first time today...what a good fucking movie! Extremely unconventional for a musical that's for sure. Beautiful as hell. It's always so easy to forget how damn good Liza Minnelli used to be. It's pretty bleak too. I liked it a lot.

Evan Glodell is on Carson Daly's show tonight in a rerun from back in April. My DVR is set.

I just watched this tonight. Not the greatest interview, which isn't anything new, but it was in Austin and Diddy crashed the interview and gave Evan $1000 cash. He literally sounded like before that he didn't have enough for gas money to get home, it was hilarious.

Did you see pictures of it in real life? Another world compared to how the online scan of it is. 15 layers of crazy screen printing.

I can imagine. I have a Horkey hanging in my place. The man is a master.

Horkey is a god damn God.
Just unstoppable.
On the Jurassic Park one, notice his use of curls in the composition. So many swirls and circles for the eye to roll around on. Its thrilling to look at.
