it's become apparent to me in recent years that i simply don't have an affection for crime movies, though i've watched gomorrah 4x, and i've seen reality 2x, and i wish they'd do that thing in usa where they explain to everyone how far beyond on garrone they are and give him a traveling retrospective since i haven't seen the four features from the beginning of his career

i think italy means to art culture what germany means to sex culture, when i say that right now

I'm curious what you mean by this. Scheiße? It's scheiße, isn't it?

a popular opinion on germany is it's a sexual country, and i was reminded of this recently in an interview:

Quote
GN The French are not softer or harder than any other country. There’s an even stronger tradition of cruelty in Japanese cinema compared to European film. And among the Europeans, the Germans tend to top the French, Spanish, or Nordic countries when it comes to S&M or hardcore gay sex or things like that in real life.

plus i think i have an excuse to mention taxi zum klo, which is a 1980 movie from west germany, and i wouldn't say it's sexually daring so much as sexually self-assured in a way that the modern usa world is still trying to catch up with

Thank you for bringing this into my orbit, jenks. Dead on about its self-assurance. Bracingly honest too -- and not just about sexual matters. Loneliness, compulsion, stagnation, the difficulty of love. It's a naked film, figuratively and literally, in a way that something like Shame longs to be and can't, whether for censorship or lack of courage.

Were it not for all the close-ups of wieners and buttholes, this would no doubt have a much wider audience and greater popular acclaim. Not quite a classic of the mainstream variety, but on the order of Ali: Fear Eats the Soul for sure. Come to think, that would make one hell of a double feature.
