First with a ref to John Ford because I did not like very much this picture I saw right now. Problem is that is too feminine in the bad sense, the film. It's very nice if you like paintings, but you know, cinema is something else.

The rest of pictures are in my collection of cinema-tv pics but I don't have the slightest idea of which film do they come from.

"Ford was highly intelligent, erudite, sensitive and sentimental, but to protect himself in the cutthroat atmosphere of Hollywood he cultivated the image of a "tough, two-fisted, hard-drinking Irish sonofabitch".[71] One famous event, witnessed by Ford's friend actor Frank Baker, strikingly illustrates the tension between the public persona and the private man. During the Depression, Ford—by then a very wealthy man—was accosted outside his office by a former Universal actor who was destitute and needed $200 for an operation for his wife. As the man related his misfortunes, Ford appeared to become enraged and then, to the horror of onlookers, he launched himself at the man, knocked him to the floor and shouted "How dare you come here like this? Who do think you are to talk to me this way?" before storming out of the room. However, as the shaken old man left the building, Frank Baker saw Ford's business manager Fred Totman meet him at the door, where he handed the man a cheque for $1,000 and instructed Ford's chauffeur to drive him home. There, an ambulance was waiting to take the man's wife to the hospital where a specialist, flown in from San Francisco at Ford's expense, performed the operation. Sometime later, Ford purchased a house for the couple and pensioned them for life. When Baker related the story to Francis Ford, he declared it the key to his brother's personality: "

This is probably the best movie I've ever seen. If it wasn't for my dry eyes, I'd have cried.
Not only is the story of a sickly, young priest struggling with his health, faith and parish really gripping, the acting is also superb. The main character acts just like someone who has problems with his stomach and barely eats to get away from the pain. A thing I sadly know from experience.

I like this movie immensely because of how every line in it carries immense weight, how no scene is superfluous and how it's so aesthetically cohesive. As a layman, I boldly proclaim that this is what a masterpiece looks like.

I watched Youth today. While dramaturgically and in the way it was filmed and cut this is like a solid Hollywood movie, but it's the setting which makes it really interesting. It's a 2017 Chinese coming of age drama/war movie about a dance/art troupe in the People's Army during the 70ies cultural revolution period. So we follow the young protagonists through their early phase of life with their troubles and then expierience how they are dragged into the Sino-Vietnamnese war and afterwards get a short vision into struggle with the changes brought upon by Deng.

Pretty decent comedy horror. There is not much plot, and what little plot there is it's mostly surreal, but there are quite a few funny moments. It's about a cemetery man Francesco Dellamorte who in addition to his regular job also has to kill zombies that resurrect in seven days after being buried. One day he meets a beautiful widow and falls in love with her, but she dies too. Afterwards he meets her again, but as another woman (or not?) and then once more, so he gets progressively confused and lost in a bizarre entanglement of Love and Death.

There's been a bit of hype lately about this documentary lately, it just came out yesterday or so on Am*zon. It follows a couple of depressed channers, or rather somewhat prominent Twitter (ex-)channer guys. I guess you could call them "incels" to use a contemporary term.
Nothing much happens, they just talk about their life and walk around some scenery for the most part, and then there's a bit of a follow up, two years or so later, about what changed in their lives.
It's decently shot and edited, but overall rather mediocre, just doesn't really go anywhere much. Had something like that come out a few years earlier, it might've been more impressive, in fact there's the Gothic King Cobra doc which I found a lot more interesting, it also follows an outcast character, even if a somewhat different one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CvhchxHUCA0
But I gotta admit the fat cowboy guy kinda cracks me up, the fact that he just walks around Texas dressed like that makes me happy, and you can tell the camera man or director really tried hard to get some nice shots with him (and they did). I could imagine a Midnight Cowboy reimagining starring that guy.

Pulp is the literary equivalent of B-film. It's the cheap genre fiction of the mid 20th century, those little WW2 comics that you'd read as a kid (dunno if they're a thing in spain) and so on. They get the name from being printed on low-quality pulp paper.

I understand. WW2 comics from that period from here have been always treated with respect. I think it might be because Spain is a poor country and in that times it was considered the "Cinema for the poor". I get your idea but my problem is that I usually have in better consideration B-flims than A-films.


Now for the film: it's interesting because I always say a Western is a kind of film that has more chances of producing good films. Why? Because they show lots of nature! And the same case with Christian films. Why? Because they can be radical and beautiful at the same time! Eat that, Yukio Mishima!

the fascists won the war in Spain, and their legacy lives on. But since they did not want to provoke the allies it went that way:

USA vs. Japan: USA are the good ones.

anyway this comment is a fast sketch, I can't give you any exact data. As an example, in 1941 much probably any comic made in Spain depicted the Germans as the good ones.

I've watched The Tchekist by Rogozhkin, pretty solid movie - 8/10 would recommend.

>The film is set during the Russian Civil War in the period of the Red Terror. In a provincial Cheka (the All-Russian Emergency Commission for Combating Counter-Revolution and Sabotage) office in an unnamed small town, a routine bureaucratic work is taking place. Every day, a Cheka troika tribunal made of director Srubov and his assistants Pepel and Katz reads out a long list of all kinds of real and perceived counter-revolutionaries and class enemies. Those arrested are always immediately found guilty and the sentence, regardless of the accusation, gender and age of the person, is the same - to be shot.

>The terrible conveyor of death operates in the basement, overseen by Srubov: the prisoners are systematically taken out of their cell, ordered to undress, placed against the wall in fives, and shot, usually in the back of the head. Following the secret killings, the naked corpses are then dragged by feet through a special window in the cellar, loaded into a truck, and taken away, to forever disappear without a trace.

At some point, the repeated images of naked bodies being disposed of becomes somewhat tiring.

The monologues in which the characters try to justify their actions or explain why they're necessary are great. Cinematography is solid. And it really tickles my USSR autism.

I also like that the characters seem real and aren't overly vilified. At least some effort is placed into showing how people who would otherwise be normal can be instruments of terror.

Another nice touch is that the movie does start and ends in a short period of time, starting and ending with a series of executions. No effort is placed in explaining how things ended up as they are, or how the characters ended up in such situations. The world beyond the Cheka executions being carried out in a dingy basement isn't really shown - whatever scenes exist of the outside world are limited to the main character being shown doing different things in his day to day life in the hours he isn't overseeing a firing squad. There is also a nice dichotomy shown of the early soviet revolutionary project and the grim reality that is required (at least in the minds of the participants) to bring it into place.

Finally, the only sane Spaniard. It really seems like Spanish audiences are really used to dubbing. Noteworthy that I associate certain cartoons with the Spanish language since Doraemon and a handful of others were broadcast here in your language.

I've watched White Sun of the Desert, 7.5/10 would recommend if you're interested in watching a western set in the Caspian Sea.

>Russian filmmaker Vladimir Motyl directs the popular action-adventure Beloye Solntse Pustyni (White Sun of the Desert), written by Valentin Yezhov and Rustam Ibragimbekov. During the Russian Civil War, a soldier named Sukhov (Anatoly Kuznetsov) wants to return home to his wife.

The best thing this movie is really the theme, being set in the outskirts of the Soviet Union just as the civil war ends. Otherwise it's just a western, not a bad one but it's certainly full of wacky cartoonish things. The movie's hero is comrade Sukhov, who is forced to stay in what are basically colonial holdings in order to prevent tragedies from unfolding. He just wants to go home but his white Russian burden forces him to stay. The movie has humorous scenes and lines, a bunch of them being adopted into popular Russian culture and apparently it's watched by cosmonauts before most space launches as a good luck ceremony.

Interesting, you watiching late 80s-early90s movie. Movies from this period often very dark and started touching themes that before was forbidden. Not seen Chekist, but there was some movies based on bulgakov, also things like Беспредел... well better I link you here http://lurkmore.to/%D0%9F%D0%B5%D1%80%D0%B5%D1%81%D1%82%D1%80%D0%BE%D0%B5%D1%87%D0%BD%D0%BE%D0%B5_%D0%BA%D0%B8%D0%BD%D0%BE there is sub-articles that have lists of movies from metioned period and thematic.

Funny thing, that Russia is super depended on dub. Movies, games, TV series everything Dub here for the most part. Interestingly I belive japan had something like too, because I noted interesting feature: in japanise games often narrator voicing title of game in menu, it's same as often in Russian dub narrators do with movies always up to recent time when often actual logo translated. I interested, if Japanise also had this and now accept as normal that title always should be voice-overed.

Interesting thing, I didn't watched this also. It's like "Ирония Судьбы или с Лёгким Паром" that for like 40 years shown everywhere on New Year, but I watched only parts of it. What russian/soviet movies you watched already?

Thanks to link, I haven't watched Беспредел but I have seen The Green Elephant. I've thought about watching Беспредел since 2013 Thanks to runet immigraniada to the infamous KC but I never actually did. I'll probably check it soon. Likewise with suggestions in the link, however my ability to do so will be limited by the availability of English subs. At least until I can actually understand a movie in Russian.

I've watched a few more half a dozen Russian movies. Brat was 10/10 and so was Leviathan, which I'd say is the best Russian movie I've watched. I've seen Теснота, which was pretty good too, 8/10. On my list of Russian movies I've seen are Ivan Vasilievich Changes Profession and Alexander Nevsky, both suggestions of a Russian on this board.

I've been getting caught up with Better Call Saul and am at the end of Season 3. The show has been mentioned here before, so you don't need me to tell you it's good, but I'll do so anyway: It's really good.
The show focuses on character development over action, and it does this brilliantly. Even scenes in which very little happens are engaging. The actors are great, but just as important, they are given room to work. In one scene a character is walking away from a conversation, and stops multiple times to look back without saying a word. But how he exits matters, and the director took the time to show that. I think that's the best way to describe how Saul handles storytelling: the show takes it's time. Whether it's a slow exterior shot to establish setting and mood, or a scene which runs an extra 20 seconds-showing just one more frustrating phone call, or one more rifle shot into the air-Saul commits time to these details.
If you don't mind a leisurely pace, this one is worth watching.
Now on to season 4...

As per in-threda suggestion, I finish Durak.

It's a nice movie, enjoyable. I guess it has some things I didn't really care for - mostly how hamfisted the exposing of the different levels of corruption is. It really doesn't leave much to the imagination.

I haven't read Dostoevsky's Idiot so literary comparisons will be limited in this review. The story of the movie itself is about a good hearted even if quixotic plumber who sees it as his obligation to save the residents of a crumbling commieblock and in doing so, the weakness and vile nature of the administration of the hellhole he lives in Russia is neglectful, corrupt and willing to sacrifice everyone besides their immediate selves to keep their position secure.

One ends up feeling empathy and even cheering our heroic Дурак on as he tries to save his fellow man and improve the world around him. A world that in his view is created by people not caring about others. This views of his is vindicated by how other characters in the movie behave, notably the administration who sees the commieblock dwellers as subhuman who would make the world better by disappearing.

Whatever bigger issues I'd have with the movie's seemingly black and white morality is solved in the final scenes.

My parents got a netflix trial so I've been mindlessly watching Mad Men, sometimes just letting it run in the background while I do something else. That's really a first for me, I used to look down on people who do this since I watched stuff with full concentration, taking screen caps etc., not sure how to feel about this. The way Netflix works with automatically starting the next episode does kind of force you into that sort of behavior I guess.
The series itself is pretty decent, although there tends to be a bit too much relationship drama. Unsurprisingly as some of the same makers are involved, it reminds me of The Sopranos.
Also the Netflix movie selection is even worse than I expected it to be, so far I've only watched Gantz O, which is an okay 3D animated adaptation of the Gantz manga, but doesn't really work as a standalone movie, it only adapts one arc of the manga, but it's too short and doesn't provide the necessary context if you haven't read the manga, so I can't really recommend it. Btw, I suppose it could make a pretty good setting for a video game.

This looks really good, will put this on my watchlist. Since you seem to be into Russian movies, I can recommend DMB/Demobbed (2000), it's a surreal comedy about the compulsory draft in Russia, really fun: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p0EMeT1MDn0

Don't worry, lad. You'll be watching Corrie in no time.

It captures that 90s sci-fi charm perfectly so I would recommend it. The CGI will even remind you of cut-scenes from 90s computer games.

True that it starts slow as it needs to set up all the pieces but there's still good early episodes. Give it till the end of season 2 at least.

Watched Bespredel, 7/10. I was expecting a goofy meme Russian movie, but it was actually nice. Very enjoyable movie about Russian prison life, with undertones about revolution and the inevitability of social stratification. There was something missing from the movie, I'm not sure what though. A lot of the characters do seem to blend together into an amorphous mass, but I assume that was part of the idea. I guess it's due to how short the movie feels, but I'm not sure. I guess it would have been portrayed as a mini-series, a lot of subplots seem to be rushed through.

The subtitles I watched it with had a bunch of *Translator note's, to explain what different prison slang terms meant but I already knew half of them due to runet influences in a previous imageboard which shall not be named.

Well, Беспредел main focus was how perestroika and general changes of society in late 80s affected soviet prison life. How old rules crumbles into this type of anarchy. In many ways it's also allegory on happenings in society in general, since it's now hard to imagine Russia in general as metaphorical prison.

Also, there was Сергей Гармаш's small benis :----DDDDD

Very ebin fantasy/action about immortal swordsmen fighting it out battle royale style in 80s NY. Surprisingly good cinematography & really memorable cast.
Somehow it felt very anime-ish, and lo and behold there's apparently an anime adaptation as well. Also I'm pretty sure it was one of the main inspirations behind the whole Fate VN/anime franchise, and surprisingly I didn't find anybody making this connection before, unless there's some common influence for both I'm missing.
oot in the works for several years, but it seems to be stuck in prodcution hell. Well, it would probably turn out inferior anyways.

Having finished the series, I can highly recommend it if you have no significant knowledge of the Spanish Civil War. The best parts are the interviews with survivors of the war - the documentary was made in the 70s, so most participants were still alive.

If I can fault it for anything, it tries too hard to paint a picture of the Republicans as the good guys. It acknowledges up-front that massive atrocities were committed by both sides, but every time a Republican atrocity is brought up, it's usually with an asterisk and an explanation that tries to make it seem like an unfortunate exception, rather than part of a regular pattern.

Another example: Nationalists can't say that they were genuinely motivated by horror at church burnings without the narrator popping in to say that, in fact, many devout Basques backed the Republicans, so the Nationalists are hypocrites to call the war a crusade. But actual communists are allowed to prattle on about the glorious revolution and their righteous cause without any snide editing about the violent purges of their fellow leftists, or the fact that many Falangists believed deeply in workers rights and land reform...

Cases like this aren't a huge part of the series, and are easy to overlook. But I really don't like it when series producers push an agenda, however slight, when they sell their work on its fairness and impartiality.

Well, I expected better, to be honest. Despite what critics and the like say, the movie wasn't "intelligent" much, just a mediocre cosmic horror story (the plot is basically Lovecraft's "The Colour Out of Space") desperately trying and failing to be a Tarkovsky film, and the deepest question that it raised is "OMG, why are we humans so self-destructive?". The only things I liked are visuals (they appeal to me for some reason) and maybe the soundtrack in the culmination of the movie (spooky electronics, reminded me a bit of Autechre in Aronofsky's Pi). Also, the positive thing of the movie putting up a pretense that it's smarter than it really is is that the horror is subdued and not consisted of jumpscares and gore (although both are present), but instead works by creating an unnerving atmosphere (how successful it is is another question, though). Overall, nice entertainment for a couple of hours, but nothing more.

I finished Brat 2 and it really isn't all that good. Don't get me wrong it's an enjoyable movie and I liked watching but it's just so goofy at some many points.

The plot is that Danila find himself having to go to America to deal with an evil American who does evil things (including but not limited to: filming snuff and rape videos in Russia and selling them in the US). Most of the movie is about his hijinks in America and dealing with being in this bizarre land. The movie has a weird theme in which it tries to bring across what it means to love one's country and how America isn't so great.

I'm not even sure what the message one is really meant to take home but it seems to be that money and wealth don't make a country great and that people who are lured with the promise of the American dream end in suffering.

In his adventures to track down the evil American, Danila befriends a prostitute who is bullied by her pimp and then Danila kills said pimp - freeing the girl and in the end bringing her back to Russia. His given reason for doing this is because she's a Russian and Russians don't abandon each other.

He also fucks a Russian pop star early on, but that doesn't really fit into the plot and I'm not sure why it was even added. There are lot of superfluous elements that I don't really understand. I guess the central point is that Russians shouldn't idolize America, I think.

Overall it is pretty fun to watch but it's sadly really not like the first one that had a far more serious tone. This one is a very silly spinoff. It feels like a "America may have money -- but Russian have soul!" message marketed for Russians.

Last and First Men, a black/white artsy SF film by Icelandic composer Jóhann Jóhannsson. Based on a 1930s sci-fi novel called Last and First Men: A Story of the Near and Far Future
According to wiki "A work of unprecedented scale in the genre, it describes the history of humanity from the present onwards across two billion years and eighteen distinct human species, of which our own is the first(...)"

The film is narrated by Tilda Swinton speaking to us from 2,000,000,000 A.D and features many more or less forgotten brutalist monuments and sculptures built in former socialist Yugoslavia.
No. 42301
I'll have to watch it. Honestly I think that being an American would probably make this movie either interesting or more likely unintentionally hilarious to watch, like probably they think when watching movies or video games of the Evil Russian in them, although sometimes like C&C it is intentionally tongue in cheek and meant to be over the top not taken seriously the way this so sounds like.
>with an evil American who does evil things (including but not limited to: filming snuff and rape videos in Russia and selling them in the US)
Ehh there's probably a hell of a lot more truth to this than you realize but they left out one crucial thing: it is usually the Russians themselves who are selling these kinds of things to us. Or however many percent of modern Russian organized crime is actually ethnic Rus as opposed to Jews and Armenians.

Really I think that if Russia wants to talk about this stuff they should start by dealing with their own intelligence network and its ties to their own organized crime that is producing and selling CP to Wecterners. It's not exactly a secret that this is happening and has been happening for quite awhile and it wouldnt surprise me if Trump is compromised somehow by it, or that many of our and other politicians are similarly compromised by CIA/MI6/MOSSAD or whichever other glowing networks.

Based on the book by Olaf Stapledon? Didn't like the book much, its concept was interesting, but the realization wasn't to my taste. It just felt that the author had lots of cool ideas and wanted to shove as much of them into the book as possible, but then he figured that it would be too damn long, so he shortened it considerably leaving only several of those ideas which he liked the most.

It's curious that they've decided to make a movie based on it, though. I believed that the book is pretty much unadaptable to the screen due to its structure. I'm guessing that they did it kinda like a documentary?

Call me an idiot, but I'm actually enjoying a TV show called Community quite a bit. It's stupid, absurd and sometimes grotesque, but the amount of stupidity rarely exceeds critical levels, and sometimes the writers actually come up with something subtle and clever, at least by the standards of the sitcom genre. The genre deconstruction/parodies are probably the best episodes.

It's not anything conventional I would know a name for, it's just the narrating voice reading written text (passages from the book I assume) and a series of barely moving camera perspectives showing details of mentioned sculptures/monuments and landscapes in b/w.

I think it could also be called "Reflections on human life" or "Meditations on Brittleness of Being" or something like that, if it wasn't named after te book. It shows that the director is a composer imho.

The one downside to this movie is really how many slow and empty scenes there are, like the arctic itself :DD I understand they are necessary to convey a specific feeling but my God are they are just mind numbing at some point - after the 5th scene of a solid 30 second still footage of someone walking in a frozen waste it becomes pretty tiring.

Got kinda tired of Japanese cartoons, so I decided to give Murrican ones a go instead, in particular classic Disney and Warner Bros. ones. While I was more or less familiar with Disney oldies (I remember watching shorts on a rented cassette about Goofy trying different sports; there was also Skeleton Dance on that cassette, and it really spooked me at first (I was about five years old then), but then it became one of my favorites), Looney Tunes/Merrie Melodies passed me by for some reason, although I knew about it through its spin-off of sorts Tiny Toon (both animated series and videogames on NES and Megadrive). Now I watched some of them and they're fucking awesome! They aren't really children cartoons: there is some dark humor, culture references and quite a lot of violence (bloodless one of course, like in Tom and Jerry) and no educational/moralizing bullshit. And in my opinion the best kind of cartoons is the ones that you can enjoy regardless of your age.

There is a problem though. There are tons of them, and I don't think that I'm gonna download them all (the torrents for Looney Tunes are about 500 Gb or so). Perhaps Ernst has some favorite classic short cartoons that he can recommend? Not necessary from WB, other studios like Disney and MGM are fine as well (except Tom and Jerry — it's probably my favorite cartoon ever and I watched the ones from Hannah-Barbera era like a thousand times, so I don't think that you can recommend me something that I don't already know and love).
