LOVED A FACE IN THE CROWD!! Need to see more KAZAN!!

edit: Trafic is awesome!!

Glad you enjoyed them. A Face in the Crowd has to be my favorite movie of the 1950s alongside Night of the Hunter.

...the Criterion Blu Ray of Jules et Jim, THE EXTRAS!! There is la terrific interview featuring Jeanne Moreau, Truffaut and Jean Renoir.

Don't think I've listened to that - will investigate.

Very much. I discovered Trafic a couple months ago. NotH is classic... first ones coming to me are Sweet Smell of Success, Smiles of a Summer Night, all of Fellini's work from the 50's (particularly I Vitelloni), Paths of Glory, Shadows....

Stanley Kramer's On the Beach (1959) from Kino



On the Beach (1959) - Amazon

The war is over. Nobody won. Only the inhabitants of Australia and the men of the U.S, submarine Sawfish have escaped the nuclear destruction and radiation. Captain dwight Towers (Gregory Peck) takes the Sawfish on a mission to see if an approaching radiation cloud has weakened, but returns with grim news: the cloud is lethal. With the days and hours dwindling, each person confronts the grim situation in his or her own way. One (Fred Astaire) realizes a lifetime Grand Prix ambition, another (Ava Gardner) reaches out for a chance at love. The final chapter of human history is coming to a close...

BFI is also releasing a Herzog set with slightly different content (titles not on Shout Factory set bolded)

http://www.bfi.org.uk/news-opinion/news-bfi/announcements/bfi-dvdblu-rays-announced-summer-2014

The Werner Herzog Collection – mammoth Blu-ray and DVD box sets compiling 18 of the legendary German director’s films from late 1960s to the early 1980s, including:

The Unprecedented Defence of the Fortress Deutschkreuz (1967)
Last Words (1968)
Precautions Against Fanatics (1969)
Fata Morgana (1971)
Handicapped Future (1971)
Aguirre, Wrath of God (1972)
Land Of Silence and Darkness (1971)
Heart of Glass (1976)
Stroszek (1977)
The Enigma of Kaspar Hauser (1974)
The Great Ecstasy of Woodcarver Steiner (1974)
How Much Wood Would a Woodchuck Chuck (1978)
Woyzeck (1979)
Nosferatu the Vampyre (1979)
Fitzcarraldo (1982)
Huie’s Sermon (1983)
God’s Angry Man (1983)
Cobre Verde (1987)

Extras include Jack Bond’s long-unseen South Bank Show on Herzog from 1982. (July)

DVDBeaver's Nosferatu blu-ray comparison shows excessive digital cleanup on Shout Factory's release compared to the BFI (credit to this thread on Criterion Forum). Not sure if this will be indicative of the transfers on the other Herzog titles in Shout Factory's box set...but I might go with the BFI release for Nosferatu and just to be sure.

wilder i keep watching night tide while i fall asleep. that's my new nighttime movie. i always like to have a nighttime movie, though sometimes i don't, and right now it's night tide. examples of previous nighttime movies: spirited away, rebels of the neon god, tmnt ii: secret of the ooze. k

today i visited xixax and found conversations about whether or not people liked the last tv show they watched. one of the tremendous advantages to watching tv is everyone watches tv now so you can watch tv and become a fabulous conversationalist around the water machine. i had a plan to restore the hearts and souls of movie people, i had a plan to find conversational movie news, and today is tuesday so it took me one click to aicn and now

movies released today for home and anyway maybe you can download them or idk the important thing is we pretend this is really fucking important so we can call this the golden age of movie discussion; i'll start with the obvious


i'm so embarrassed. i'm sorry. i'm so sorry. my papers are a little ruffled and i planned and planned this presentation but boy i mightta blown my opening -- the birdcage. nervous cough, nervous cough. the birdcage, right. mike nichols directed, stars are omg. you can just look at the bluray and it'll tell you those things. omfg. i'm staying calm. the birdcage was shot by emmanuel lubezki, after he'd shot reality bites, before he shot sleepy hollow, and recently he shot gravity. it's cool that nichols and burton shared a dp, and the production designer was also shared by them -- before the birdcage, bo welch was the production designer for edward scissorhands and beetlejuice. this movie is fucking loaded with special features, and those special features are people. hell yeah. i last saw this movie when it was on hbo after coming out and that was a longtime ago. what's it like now? i have no fucking idea. do you? please tell me thank you and now the next


did you see great american actor mark wahlberg's latest movie? now, pain and gain got some hoopla, good for it, and transformers 4 will do whatever those movies do, great, but goddamnit, usa's greatest living actor played a soldier, a hero, a somethingsomething i forget, and did anyone even seen the movie???


where is reelist? where is polka? can i, i forget how this works is it #polka or @reelist. this is for people who admire the worst. for appreciating those who worked long and hard and carried with them spirit and strength to finish their movie for a mysterious reason. what did this movie give the world? goddamn mystery. it's played in los angeles multiple times but i haven't seen it once, and really if someone else doesn't also watch the movie than the whole plan is ruined. we got some shit we could be talking about here. i'm in. seems like a great reason for learning how to torrent


it's like this: through its ingredients, it's impossible for me to not appreciate the robocop remake. i haven't seen it and i'll probably redbox it, but what i appreciate is how an "outsider," a brazilian filmmaker, was brought into hollywood to make a big budget movie. of course i agree that everything the studio did to change how he was making the film was a bad move on the studio's part. hollywood you often make yourself worse while you try make yourself better. anyway i want to see this, these are the same ingredients which brought us the original. into this


how have you seen and appreciated boogie nights but you've never seen something like "In 1973, Lloyd Kaufman wrote and produced an erotic thriller set in the porn industry, that starred the exceedingly fun Mary Woronov and some of Andy Warhol’s troop" mary woronov is the name that sells me. plus i've been meaning to watch an entire troma movie at some point

Cool? Definitely a night time movie. Puts you in that foggy half-asleep state even when you're awake. To anyone reading these aren't backhanded compliments - the movie just requires total submission to its hazy dream logic (not in a Mulholland Drive way)

rebels of the neon god

^ I just learned that existed and have been trying to make time to watch it but haven't found any this week. Also noticed you mentioned it in your short film thread. From the trailer I'm in love with the look.

Never seen The Birdcage. Never had much interest?

No...

Why does he look like Tom Hanks on the cover?

I've seen this it sucks.

There was an interview he gave in promotion of the movie where he talked about the ideas he was trying to inject, how he was going to make it different from the original and really try to stamp out his own thing, that had me on board. Of course I didn't end up seeing it. What happened with the studio? The usual?

This is a Troma movie...? I've watched that trailer a few times in the past week thinking I'd be into it and looking for what I wasn't seeing before but it just didn't do anything for me. It's a Vinegar Syndrome release. I dig the cover? Think I like the idea of these vintage exploitation movies more than what they actually are.

This-just-in while I was typing the above reply. Maybe you'll be into it. Trash on that level (Death Bed) might just not be my thing.

had a blast of a tuesday. thanks

movie just requires total submission to its hazy dream logic
agreed. and this is textured against california beaches, the sideshow, dennis hopper as an emotionally elastic young navy person, mystical fantasy, and these slow moods that drift by musically and through environment, through dennis hopper's curious eyes, through this dreamy whisper into my thoughts, for my dreams to be like movies and for my next day to become the dream, which well recently has been a strange american tale laced with the ponderable uncertainties of existence, and i like when i sense the strangeness to my life through the magic of movies
