Coming to the realization that this film is a riot. Ever since the riots in the 60’s, the people passed their anger and trauma towards their younglings, as will the younglings when they have kids. Unleashing anger towards society because of mistreatment prior, and those same people would only be expecting the worst out of you present day. One of the most angry films I’ve ever seen, yet at the same time so honest and therapeutic and something that reflects today in the scariest way possible.
when i was really young, my grandparents owned two VHSs that sat on the shelf when my family would visit: Planes, Trains and Automobiles, and this. guess which of them i was allowed to view?
hard drive kept ejecting itself while i was watching this which annoyed the shit out of me but otherwise dumb fun cute movie.
Jonathan Demme's amazing concert movie, with such a cool concept and great music.
So while watching I decided to google "best concert movies" and one of the result was; JUSTIN BIEBER: NEVER SAY NEVER (2011). Has pop music today really come to this, lip syncing is considered a concert? Now I hate music.
Fooled them, hoping to seem
Like the slayer of evil
But the product of greed, and
It’s not a mask, so be honest with me
They can’t afford to ignore that I’m the disease
Practical, since we had to be, and
When they were old, they came back to me
And they tried, oh, they tried
And when you follow through and wind up on your back
Looking up at no stars in the sky
Those white clouds have turned it black
Some things do change, and other things are constant
A cultural history rendered in pristine digital; The Old and The New.
I was initially put off by the stagnant nature of Zhangke's interview format, but this time paid careful attention to each mise en scène, noting the intricately detailed framing of every deceptively standard shot. And to my pleasant surprise, everything fell into place.
Swimming Out is composed almost entirely in brutally shallow focus, suggesting a constant present to every…
Made me feel like I was ten years old again. Really the coolest shit just being thrown at you but unlike his contemporaries Wong knows how to weave emotionality texturally. Wasn't expecting the plot to be this incoherent but it's in a fashion where your never lost, your feeling your way through the narrative not deliberating it. Portrays the seemingly never-ending search for love in a chaotic, fragmented city, sometimes it works out and sometimes it doesn't but the chase…
I am trying to remember,if I have seen this film in it's entirety or not.It doesn't matter though because this was a total blast from the past.It actual looks and feels like 1976.I wish I could just escape from my shitty current life and just disappear into this world.Plus this has one of the grooviest soundtracks of all time(I am definitely going to check out some of the songs for sure!)
Licorice Pizza is one of the most charming, beautifully shot, and genuinely sincere movies in a decade. It’s PTA’s most intimate movie, the most relaxed he’s ever been behind the camera, and I’m not sure he’s ever been better.
I totally understand why some people might take issue with the film, but I found it so genuine and innocent that nothing ever made me uncomfortable.
Every single one of PTA’s films are beautiful, but what’s impressive about the cinematography in…
