Hehehe I'm currently on my way to transferring to Berkeley for Architecture next Fall. The vision one attains from studying architecture is SO ridiculously suited for film that it blows me away sometimes.

Last Thursday I had coffee, a Nature Valley bar, and some sushi =).

I am 28 years old from Sweden and have been following this thread since spring 2010 when Master was first in develop. I think I found this place because I was searching the web for the Master screenplay. I am studying filmediting and like reading screenplays and I am also a big fan of Paul Thomas Andersons and think this forum is really really great! So I registered... and now here I am!

Hello! I have been following this site for years but was to lazy to sign up untill one day I decided too
I used to have MUBI but i deleted that account. I am from NYC. Live in Queens. I am a huge P.T Anderson fan, Q.T fan, James Gray, Gaspar Noe,Steven Soderburgh, Martian Scorsese,Abel FerraraLucio Fulci,R.W Fassbinder, Sam Peckinaph,Jean Rollin and Brian DePalma to name a few.

I wanna get into Jess Franco and Tinto Brass but have not seen a film by either of these dudes but if I had to start I would start with Salon Kitty for Brass( although I own Caligula, but I havent finished it..) and for Franco I DVR Venus in Furs once but my sister deleted it for an episode of Modern Family....

I love spaghetti westerns and collect them, I wish that German rainbow series would become available in English. I am so bummed that its not, I will settle for English subtitles...

I love anime and manga, paticualry the anime of the 60s,70s,80s, and early 90s. I dont like the heavy CG stuff thats out there now, but if the story is good I will watch it.

I love kung fu movies and would like to discuss Shaw Brothers films and Golden Harvest, the esstenials and what not

I love film noir and would like to dicuss these films

I love  blaxpoilation films and would like to discuss these films as well, my favorites are Candy Tangerine Man, Samson, Dolemite, Truck Tunner, Black Ceasar, Hell in Harlem, and That Man Bolt. I also enjoy any Pam Grier movie.

I would like recommendations for any movie starring these folks

I am getting into Giallos and would like to discuss these

I enjoy reading Greek and Roman classic literature, so I see myself enjoying the sword and sandal movies, I recently say Ulysses with Kirk Douglas and Anthony Quinn, and enjoyed it for what it was worth.

I am looking for the Knuckle Sandwhich script as well as the hard eight one.
If anyone has any links to any other scripts by Robert Towne,David Milch,James Toback, Roger Avary or John Milius. I would be grateful. I can trade some scripts that I have like Wolf on Wall Street and Drive Away Dykes.

Hey guys.

I felt a re-introduction kind of thing might be appropriate considering it's been a number of years since my last post (though some of you ought to remember me)...I've been checking in regularly ever since, just there was a certain point when, looking back upon what seemed to me a vastly immature posting history, I concluded I wasn't contributing much of value to the site and decided to shut up for a while.

But anyhow, just wanted to say hello to everybody. What's been up with me? Well, I recently earned my bachelor's degree (english/theatre) and am now living in New Orleans. In the past few years I've written a number of plays, a few of which were produced at school, a few others given readings etc. in New York, good fun. I am currently plugging away at my latest script, making good time and feeling quite invigorated. I recently quit my job and am confident that it was the right thing to do.

This place has been a continuous source of information and inspiration for me, and I'm looking forward to contributing, however modestly, again.

haha. I'm always feelin this way. the best I can do is not get on anyone's nerves. I'll do you a favor and NOT search out those 'immature' comments of yours, if you'll grant me the same honor  :)

That's awesome! Please don't hesitate to post any clips of your plays or whatever. I'd like to see 'em.

For some reason I thought CloudAuteur had started a thread specifically for wanking over clouds, but I guess not. Guess I'll put this here for you then: http://www.mnn.com/lifestyle/arts-culture/stories/artist-creates-beautiful-indoor-clouds

What up XIXAX!

Iíve been browsing around this site for a couple years now and never really feel the need to join in until recently, when you guys posted a picture that I sent to Cigsandredvines (This pic: https://twitter.com/#!/cigsandredvines/media/slideshow?url=pic.twitter.com%2FyjaoVPXL)  and I felt the need to comment on it. 

Quick Info about myself:  Iím 20, I love dogs and I enjoy long walks on the beach (Itís not a clichť if itís always true)Ö  Iím American, currently living in Dominican republic (work-related),  Iím a writer/Director (never use the word ďaspiringĒ, because I donít  aspire to anything, I AM A FUCKING WRITER/DIRECTOR ALREADY.. Now I just need get the movies made : )). I am OBSESSED with Cinema, to the point where there was a couple months I was unemployed and I spent all day watching movies, literally watching  4 -  5 or even 6 movies a day, that was all I did ALL DAY/EVERY DAY.

 My favorite Director is Paul Thomas Anderson but I also love the work of: Kubrick, Lynch, Tarantino, Scorsese (Own everything heís ever made and have seen all his movies at least 3 times), Clouzot, Carl dreyer, Fellini  (The Master), Bertolucci, Godard, Murnau,  Wes Anderson,  Orson Welles, Hitchcock, Passolini, Antonioni, Ophuls (the master of the moving Camera), Tarkovsky, etc etc.  I could keep going on and on about names, from the silent era until the Justin Bieber movie. Seriously, if I watch a movie I like, I find out who the director is and then watch his whole filmography back to back. Doing that gets tough sometimes because some directors have too many movies in their filmographyÖ The toughest to get through was Godard because after the 70ís his movies fucking SUCK. Anybodyís watched KING LEAR?   

My favorite Movie of all-time is actually a tie between TAXI DRIVER and BADLANDS.  MAGNOLIA comes close second and RAGING BULL takes third place. CASINO is at 4th (if you need lessons on how Style should be done, just watch Casino) and 5th is CITIZEN KANE (If you need lessons on how to tell a story as a Director)

I donít believe in Film School. Excuse my arrogance but Film school canít teach me anything that I donít already know after watching a million movies. The only thing Film School can give you is a bullshit Diploma . But I donít wanna knock anyone down, if you are at film school or plan on going, MORE POWER TO YA!

I LOVE TO SHOOT FILM. Even when itís just 16mm, it has a texture and a look that Digital hasnít achieved YET. Hopefully on years to come, Digital will be up to par. I do have a Canon 7D though which looks great but still NOTHING COMPARES TO FILM.

I love watching movies on Mute. Seriously if you wanna learn Film technique just watch movies with the Sound Off. You will learn tons of little tricks. Like Iíve noticed  Scorsese always shows Violence in a Wide Uncut Shot (Watch the guy get his hand hammered in Casino or the guy get his hand blown off in Taxi Driver or Ray Liotta hitting the guy with the revolver in Goodfellas. The shot being UNCUT and STATIC, gives you a sense of realism and real tension) and  PTA always has the camera go completely off focus when his characters are going a little insane (Basically causes the same effect as tilting the camera:  The effect of disorientation) .

I love films that deal with the Human condition and show human behavior straight up, no Hollywood bullshit. I like movies that challenge me to think but I donít mind also watching Transformers 2 from time to time, you know, to remind myself that if Michael Bay can make a film then I sure as hell can. I really donít like Westerns, for some reason they bore me to death. The Leone ones I like, some by Corbucci and some John Ford ones I can stand but aside from that, Westerns are not really my thing.

I am obsessed with music just as much as I am with Cinema, So if any of you wanna talk music, Iím up for it. I play Piano and a little bit of Guitar. I listen to everything. But my favorites are 90's Hip hop and 70's rock. I think THE ROLLING STONES are better than THE BEATLES.  Pink Floyd is the greatest band of all time and Led Zeppelin is Overrated but that's just my opinion. Also, love THE WHITE STRIPES. Jack White is a Genius.

I have a Youtube Channel Full of Paul Thomas Anderson stuff (and some Scorsese/Coen brothers stuff), check it out:   

http://www.youtube.com/user/DonRMB/videos

Any questions, feel free to ask Ďem.

P.s:  Is anyone else saving money to go Watch THE MASTER and DJANGO UNCHAINED at least 20 times each?  Or is it just me?
Fuck this place..... I got a script to write.
