Thread: Schoolio's Movie Corner

    Not sure if you guys discussed this or not,
    but recently watched Kill Joe and the movie is still with me, especially the last damn scene.
    I can't decide if i loved the movie or hated it.
    I surely hated all the characters in it, that's for sure.

    Yeah Killer Joe was pretty crazy. It was wayyyyy too over the top but some parts were pretty viscerally effecting (especially the chicken drumstick scene holy shit.) I thought it was a pretty well done dark comedy although wow, the way all of the characters treated the women of the story was pretty sickening. McConaughey was disturbing as fuck

    Gangster Squad is completely stupid and totally fun. it was exactly what i expected it to be and I loved it. it looks fantastic and is very bloody and awesome. Also, i didn't realize Giovanni Ribisi was in it, and I always forget how much I like him.

    Haha, what's the world coming to! I was trying to figure out which German expressionist made Silver Lining Playbook.

    Killer Joe was twisted enough. I like to believe killer joe and the daughter live happily ever after. The dad was such a putz.


    Watching Prometheus right now and it's badass. It's the prequel to Aliens.

    Silver Lining and Juno....interesting....

    I went to a screening of Les Mis last night, I didn't want to see the movie in theaters because I thought it was too long and I'd get bored, but went because of the Q&A after and man am I glad I went. I know so many people hate this movie. But I loved it, the performances were incredible and it was so well done that it felt like an hour and a half. I also forgot there was even singing, it was so not the main focus for me. I think there was maybe one scene where someone actually talked and I was just like "holy shit I forgot they've been singing, how odd of them to talk..." I loved it.

    Hey guys looking for some recommendations on where to start for a few directors. Never seen a movie from any of them.

    Where to start for Ozu? I was gonna just jump in with Tokyo Story but maybe there's a better entry point.

    Jean Renoir?

    Tarkovsky?

    Dreyer?

    Bresson?

    Rossellini?

    You can start with Tokyo Story if you want, it's accessible but it moves kind of slow. I really like Floating Weeds, which is about a traveling theater troupe. It's a color remake of A Story of Floating Weeds, which is a b&w film Ozu did earlier in his career. Criterion has both of these in one package, the color one is the remake.
    We're here to play some Mississippi Delta Blues. We're in a horrible depression, and I gotta admit - we're starting to like it.

    The only ones you shouldn't start with would be Ivan's Childhood (good, but his first and not reflective of his body of work) or Andrei Rublev (fantastic, but extremely long.)

    Thanks guys, got some watching to do. Excited to dig into a bunch of new (to me) directors this year; it's about time.

    According to David Prior, Fincher's producer of home theater releases, it seems unlikely, as welcome as it would be be.

    Respectively, I started with Good Morning, Rules of the Game, Andrei Rublev, Ordet and Diary of a Country Priest. I haven't yet seen any Rosselini.

    With Tarkovsky, I watched his too-short filmography in mostly chronological order - started with Rublev, then Solaris, then back to his first film Ivan's Childhood, and then picked up with Mirror and so on. I would recommend this approach. Every film after Ivan's feels like the best film ever made.

    With Bresson, I would not recommend Diary of a Country Priest as an entry point; A Man Escaped or Pickpocket would probably be better choices. That said, you'll need to be patient with him and probably watch a few of them before you get a handle on his style. It's absolutely worth the investment.

    As for Dreyer, some would probably suggest starting with one of his silent films instead - probably The Passion of Joan of Arc (which I haven't seen) or Vampyr, which I have seen and love.

    Rossellini is easy, Rome, Open City. In my experience you could just start there and work forward in time.

    Where to start for Ozu?
    Late Spring & Tokyo Story

    Jean Renoir?
    Rules of the Game is my favorite and the one I watch almost every year.

    Grand Illusion is known as one of the greatest of all time and is the main influence on the characterization of Darth Vader

    Tarkovsky?
    I have yet to see his films but I know the two essentials are Andrei Rublev (Waiting on the Criterion Blu!) and Solaris

    Dreyer?
    THE PASSION OF JOAN OF ARC go watch this twice, like right now. Seriously.

    Bresson?
    All of his films! But here is the order I suggest for a top 3:

    1. Au Hassard Balthazar
    2. Mochette
    3. Pickpocket

    Rossellini?
    I need suggestions for him as well

    Diary of a Country Priest is the only Bresson film I've seen that hasn't really left an impression on me. I should really give it another chance.

    Thanks! I should do a Tarkovsky marathon soon.




    The only thing I liked about the Soderbergh Solaris was that George Clooney was listening to Insane Clown Posse in space.

    Wow. So I just watched Pickpocket by Bresson. I seriously loved it... The camera's movements astounded me the entire time. So gorgeous. And that last line? Amazing.

    I would partially disagree with this. Those two are my favorites, but the seven essentials are all of them.
