Because surprisingly Netflix does not have a monopoly on this shit yet.

I know a lot of folks that have subscriptions to different anime services. Cinema however i don't see as much love.

Personally the only one i'm using for my 'when i'm away from my collection' service is 'SHUDDER'. Its pretty small but lately they got some nice wins like all the Hammer Horror and Universal Monster Movies as well as some exclusives like Sadako vs Kayako -which is surprisingly not dogshit for whats basically Shaun of the Dead for J Horror- and contracted original shorts written by folks like Alan Moore.

Doesn't seem popular in the mainstream but its pretty cheap and i've gotten a lot of good views out of it.

Personally i just wish they expanded their documentary section. Though ROOM 237 is an unintentional comedy i recommend watching if only to question what the fuck makes people like that.

Are there any other movie services you use now the days of the mom and pop video rental store are a thing of the past?

It's too bad they didn't merge with Criterion. From what I saw the Fandor library was a little more eclectic.

Six arthouse distributors are banding together to create a new streaming service called OVID

https://hyperallergic.com/481111/in-march-a-much-needed-streaming-service-for-arthouse-films-will-launch/

>Enter OVID, a recently announced partnership between academic documentary service Docuseek and six independent film distribution companies. Together, these partners — Bullfrog Films, Distrib Films US, Grasshopper Film, Icarus Films, KimStim, and First Run Features — control the rights to thousands of different documentary, arthouse, independent, and international titles. OVID will be an on-demand subscription service offering selections from these various catalogues.

>The site stresses that many of these films will be unavailable to see anywhere else. It promises to feature filmmakers Chantal Akerman, Chris Marker, Bill Morrison, Jean Rouch, Wang Bing, Bi Gan, Pedro Costa, Claire Denis, Bruno Dumont, Cheryl Dunye, Eric Rohmer, Raul Ruiz, and Jean-Marie Straub and Danièle Huillet.

It's such a shame that we don't have national restorations that releases the restored films for free in public domain. It's such a shame.

Another shame is, at least in Czech, that there are no filmclubs that project obscure, or at least old not-from-anglosphere films. Seeing it in kino is totally superior and more importantly totally different from seeing it from gauch on 42' tv.

films that were digitalized right away for dvd/bluray should be in public domain publicly accessible after 2-3 years

Whose visual style is most appealing to you (and why)?

One of my favorites is Vittorio Storaro, pic related. I never knew the name until I started watching early 70s gialli, particularly The Fifth Cord and Le Orme. Those films (and his work with Argento and Bertolucci) had a strong impact on me, more than his later movies that everyone has seen. I love his chiaroscuro of vibrant colors and deep blacks, the repeated use of parallel lines, and the scenes enveloped in light blue haze.

-------------------------------------------------

When you take on a project, how do you begin to visualize it in terms of the framing, the lighting and the overall look you want to give the film?

I would say that’s one of the hardest things for me as a cinematographer: finding the key that unlocks the film in a visual sense, that will illuminate the story so you’re inspired and excited about shooting it everyday for a long time — because when you decide to do a movie it can take anywhere from three months to a year of your life. When I find that key, it ignites what I call the “big bang.”

Movies that take place in few if not one location and are driven by the characters, I'd like to find more movies of the genre. Don't think this genre has any specific name but this is what I heard it called and it comes from how 8 Spartans lived in a single housing in the barracks putting up with each other.

>a duel of wits

Another duel of wits in a fixed location can be between a captor and captive. A captivity scenario is usually set up with a kidnapping or home invasion in the first act. The rest of the film is a struggle for the upper hand.

One example I like is The Collector, a modest late-career work from William Wyler. There's an easy bucolic mood in this opening scene, but (as the musical cue indicates) something darker lies beneath the surface.

The oldest feature I've ever seen is Nosferatu, which is my favourite adaptation of Dracula and one of my favourite movies in general. Max Schreck blows Lugosi out of the fucking water with his performance. The oldest short film I've seen with a narrative is embed related, from 1899. It's a fairly simple short visually and in terms of the narrative, but I think it's incredible that something as simple as a jump cut to swap out an object to us was revolutionary back then.

Oh and I guess I've seen the Roundhay Garden Scene. It's pretty neat.

I haven't seen it. I wonder who has? Because it has a surprisingly low rating, rather intriguing.

I remember the visual style of static shots from a distance in Dogtooth and The Lobster. Despite that change Yorgos has used the same cinematographer for just about everything.

I liked New Hope very much. Wouldn't put it in the first 100 tho.

Can anyone explain why is the matrix apeshit Empire Strikes Back so popular? he should have stopped after New Hope for his own sake

I haven't seen many films in general, so I haven't seen any that Šarūnas Bartas made. As for Lithuanian cinema, movies made here seem to be mostly either bleak dramas or dumb, low-brow comedies. A couple films I remember seeing in the cinema are Lošėjas (Gambler) in 2013 and Šventasis (The Saint) in 2016-2017. Both fall into the bleak drama category and both seemed a bit needlessly depressing, though I enjoyed them nevertheless. Another is Pelėdų Kalnas (Owl mountain) from 2018 which was well made and higher-budget than usual, though I didn't pay much attention to the plot which revolved around the partisan life in Soviet occupied Lithuania. Many of the mainstream "good films" in Lithuania are about the usurpations that the nation endured during and after WWII, such as Dievų Miškas (Forest of the Gods) from 2005 and the new Tarp Pilkų Debesų (Ashes in the Snow) in 2018, which I haven't seen. I liked Forest of the Gods well enough, even if the acting was a bit primitive. Prieš parskrendant į žemę (Before Flying Back to Earth) from 2005 is a pretty good documentary about children with leukemia living in a hospital. An older and popular one that I enjoyed is Maža išpažintis (Little Confession) from 1971, which is a good glimpse into 1970's Soviet Lithuania, but finding it would be pretty hard apart from Lithuanian private trackers, and getting english subtitles would probably be impossible.

Thanks for giving your assessment. I noticed the leukemia documentary before. It looked like a great one to watch, a powerful topic with 8.7 imdb rating. Forest of the Gods looks decent too. I see links for that one. The others are harder to find, like you say, but it's good to know what to look for in the future.

I watched the trailer for Owl Mountain, and even though it's about fighting back against the Soviets, I still get wary about the Voice of America because the US intentions aren't so noble either.

Jack and Jill (2011). Though most of the film was dull, it contained a very notable scene featuring Al Pacino. I dare say it's one of the greatest moments in cinematic history. Dugan's camerawork is exquisite and Pacino's raw impassioned performance carries it to increasingly lofty heights. The lyricism is perfectly measured, each rhyming couplet dancing across the ears of the viewer. The relationship between "latte lights" and a town that is "outta sight" is so provocative that it merits whole essays worth of critical analysis. When Dunk asks us "What's my name?", he asks us not just what his name is but what our name is. In three words, our whole conception of what we know is destroyed, replaced by a void that can only be "named". Such meaningful interrogation of the human condition explored with emotional bombast is seldom seen outside of the theatre and indeed this audio-visual delight reminds one of Wagner's Tristan und Isolde,an opera only narrowly surpassed in terms of artistic merit by Dunkaccino. When future historians come to assemble a reformed Western canon, Dunkaccino will surely take pride of place as the single greatest achievement of the Western world.

The Ridiculous 6 was such a touching and enlightening portrayal of what it was like to be a Jew in America during the 1800's. I'd go so far as to say that it rivals Schindler's List in not only its artistic merit, but also its historical and cultural impact. The fact that it wasn't even nominated for any award just goes to show that Hollywood, far from being run by Jews, is antisemitic. The few Jews in Hollywood who are open about their heritage are attacked by open Antisemites, which I think can best be noticed with the attacks on many Jewish individual in Hollywood. The most famous among these victimized individuals is Harvey Weinstein. Despite his dedication to the movie industry (including co-founding Miramax) he was falsely accused of sexually soliciting many women. In this film, Adam Sandler has displayed the inherent bias of not only America, but the world when it comes to the sensitive issue of Jewish historical, and current persecution.

Me too. It wasn't long ago that Rivette's films were hard to find with good quality + English subs. Now they are mostly on bluray. It's a great thing.

LA adaptación, cuando es leve, loose, puede desembocar en una historia original. Por ejemplo, intentando adaptar un libro en el cual el narrador enuncia explicitamente que el es el creador de los personajes. ¿Cómo traduzco eso a una película?. El intento de traducir la manera en que se da la información en una novela o cuento puede hacerte ver mecanismos formales del lenguaje audiovisual que s epueden usar para contar cosas que no necesariamente tengan que ver con la historia del cuento o novela. Te hacen descubrir maneras, dispositivos, interfaces.

Pensar como se presentan los personajes, que porcentaje de la pelicula se dedica a cada cosa, etc. Por ejemplo, la mitad de la novela que estoy intentando adaptar presenta a los personajes de la siguiente manera: 40% del libro sobre un personaje, 40% sobre el otro (nunca en paralelo, aparecen sucesivos) y el otro 20 es el final en el que se encuentran dentro de la historia. Puedo pensar esa manera de relacionar y presentar personajes porque esa novela me los sugirió. Y no necesariamente usar el contenido de esa novela.

i already have some projects i want to work in the long future, nowadays it´s just thinking about the story itself, asking myself what if this plays out in a certain way and so on, changing some things that obviously can´t work, most of the projects i will working will be book to film adaptations so it saves me time about having coming up with an original story (which i suck doing it lol)

I have ideas, but sometimes I have trouble transferring my ideas into clear, crisp writing. So in trying to boost my written communication skills, I found this nice list of tips.

https://lithub.com/how-to-be-a-writer-10-tips-from-rebecca-solnit/

I think some of her advice for literature could be transferred to film as well...

. Literature is not high school and it’s not actually necessary to know what everyone around you is wearing, in terms of style, and being influenced by people who are being published in this very moment is going to make you look just like them, which is probably not a good long-term goal for being yourself or making a meaningful contribution. At any point in history there is a great tide of writers of similar tone, they wash in, they wash out, the strange starfish stay behind, and the conches. Check out the bestseller list for April 1935 or August 1978 if you don’t believe me.

Btw do you consider the blu-ray release of Solyaris, the very cold blue-tinted one that changed the very core of the film and killed any detail in it, superior to the original?

Depends on what type of sci-fi we're talking about. Are you doing soft sci-fi or hard sci-fi? What genre of sci-fi is it: space opera, cyberpunk, post-apocalyptic, steampunk (God forbid), time travel, or any other such type? These variables will influence the factors of what makes good sci-fi.

I will argue that, at minimum, a sci-fi movie has to have all the qualities that make good movies in general, plus concepts that are rooted in at least some basis of scientific fact, theory, or hypothesis, and, if we're dealing with soft sci-fi, relevant, non-preachy social commentary.
