This Year In Film / Re: a quiet place
« Last post by samsong on April 15, 2018, 03:54:17 AM »
came as no surprise to see michael bay listed as a producer when the credits finally rolled.  it at least provided some sort of an answer as to how something this stupid could exist.   i was reminded of the bit from ben affleck's commentary on armageddon where he talks about asking bay why it was easier to train drillers to be astronauts rather than the other way around, and bay telling him to

shut
the
fuck
up. 



COINCIDENCE?!?!?!

if you haven't seen/heard the clip i'm talking about, here:



it's the best thing affleck's ever done. 

fuck this movie.

Not sure what would account for these prices, but ran across this tonight:





Hopefully lots of gold leaf involved.  Or autographed by every actor and crew member.

saw it again in a edifyingly near-full theater and loved it even more.  it may even have supplanted paddington 2 as my favorite of the year so far.

that ramsay accomplishes such emotional and philosophical depth in a brisk 85 minute art house revisionist film noir that flaunts style for days is a cinematic christmas miracle.  it's possibly the most effective, harrowing, disturbingly entertaining film about living with depression and suicidal ideation that i've ever seen.

In making a playlist with all its featured music this szn, I've come across two thingz
  • Barbershop episode was all original compositions by THUNDERCAT and FLYLO
  • Non-diegetically, Teddy Perkins only featured Stevie Wonder needledropz (a dialogue/prop reference point, too).

Really dig Darius' arc, and his two-regret life limit.

I didn't hate this movie as much as you. In fact, I enjoyed seeing it in the theater. My audience was very engaged, and it was a good time. Sure it didn't make much sense, but I went in expecting that.

I am really glad you hated it so much though, because your review is amazing. Particularly this:

itís like seeing wild wild west when it was released and having the crushing realization as a child that movies could suck.

Paul Thomas Anderson / Re: Phantom Thread - SPOILERS!

Speaking of the "so and so" line, J. Hoberman's review of Phantom Thread, which only showed up recently, alerted me to something which might have been obvious to others, but definitely flew over my head. He mentions the punny connection between "so and so" and "sew and sew."

how did prague treat you? I had a bunch of friends who lived there (they studied graphic design, and film I think), and it seems like a nice place to live in. I have looked at a film school there... what did you do there?

I attended FAMU's NYU-Abroad 35mm program ~ That's where I made that Brainwash short filmi think you caught in the 4210 Strand thread.

Prague is a beautiful, storied city with a strange air around it. Edited this post form calling them hostile, and xenophobic, because well their politic opinions shouldn't be generalized, of residents or people of anywhere. Also that's xenophobic in itself, isn't it? Drug culture seems dangerous there (it's too easy to cop a srs ziplock from somebody who was supposedly just getting you grass). Food was great. And the czech krona is quite cheap, so I feasted. The hostility I mentioned before stemmed from professors and many overheard conversations, because Syrian refugees were very much on the mind and tongue that Spring.

FAMU's facility is fantastic. The city in total has been so well preserved (from surrender, modestly, and to the reverberations of their dissident tendencies) that you feel centuries of culture all throughout the different neighborhoods. Amazing museums. A great place to get high off creativity. I just couldn't integrate with the locals, even after becoming a regular at a concert venue and in FAMU's basement dining-space/bar. Idk conversations where quite deadened by the air of an American and Czech is tough to learn (our teacher was shit).

If you know anybody who could put you in touch with Barrandov, then i say yeah GO! Barrandov is all the man-power and space of a Hollywood studio lot, with a more village-friendly vibe. To be honest, if I had the opportunity to take a job there I'd definitely return. And actually, I know somebody at BarrandovTV I could put you in touch with, if it does come to that PM me ~

Another good song from that spring:

Life Without Building's live album is so good, I dont even mind the harsh memories it conjures, from the spring two years ago when i found it, luckily, while living in prague for a spell.

sue tompkins

I swear this is my last post. it's just difficult to stay away from this thread now, because i'm overdosing on really good songs. I could quote all the lines from this song because it's one of the most beautiful songs I know, but I think it's better to just listen to her sing them. she makes them even better.
