I looked at his filmography. You'd think after Mother (which I wasn't into) was such a huge success that his career would keep going. Turns out he released 3 films since and they have low ratings. I'm curious to see them now.
We profiled It's Only the End of the World at an iCMFF if I remember correctly; it has some big fans here, including me. It's a very powerful, emotional family dynamics drama based on a classic play. But it was not received well at Cannes (at least by critics, though the jury gave it the Grand Prix), and his star-studded English-language Death and Life and John F. Donovan got even worse reviews. From what I've seen he hasn't really changed as a director, but perhaps because he is not "new" anymore, and also because he is so prolific, critics have soured on him a little. :shrug:

Count me to the list of It's Only the End of the World fans. His best film IMO, packed with great performances and an extreme sense of claustrophobia.

I quite liked Death and Life and John F. Donovan - I think the bad reviews are in part due to the excessive and bombastic nature of Dolan, including some quite blunt and overt emotion, just did not work as well in English. Personally, I had the same issues with Mother though - and i view it as one of his weaker films - whereas the excesses in his best work play into this more comedic, near-surreal overtones that work really well. Death and Life and John F. Donovan is, frankly, a fairly massive work - with a gigantic cast, and a lot of play with structure that may simultaneously be conventional - but tieing in a story of this connection through letters, child obsession and changing times concerning sexuality, worked very well for me.

Matthias et Maxime on the other hand is such a flat disappointment. Still a good film - but it goes the other way - removing most of the elements that makes Dolan great - and being fairly ordinary drama, with nothing that truly stands out.

Nice surprise I just discovered, I thought I was watching the final episode but it now seems there is a 2nd season :banana:

I went to IMDB and they are also talking about a 3rd season in 2022 :party:

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0108906/episodes?season=3
Wait what? Half the principal cast is dead by now (Jaregard, Rolffes, Juul Hansen, Okking, Brandenburg, Owe), so I'm guessing it'll be a completely different thing from the original.

We just saw it. I wish it was better, because it felt like a Wakamatsu film, but a bit more on the boring side. I was also hoping for more regarding the soundtrack. I'm a fan of Yamashita and while the music was good, I expected that it would be much more present.
It's somewhat meandering, yeah. It also brought to mind Seijun Suzuki, for whom Yamatoya worked as a screenwriter.

Rewatched Metropolitan and it really woke me up. My confession is that I used to run a fairly large tumblr blog on arthouse cinema when the website was at its prime. Won't link because I'm quite sure the account got hacked and replaced with porn lol. I let my ratings of those films be affected by how much cred I would get for posting them. I did it another way by finding films that maybe 3 people rated on imdb, or aren't even on imdb at all, for more cred. Don't get me wrong, I have found some fantastic films doing this, unearthed quite a few treasures, but now I look through my ratings and there's like a 2 year period where I see a film I gave a high rating too and remember literally nothing about it.

The people in Metropolitan can be seen as despicable, but I see it as a fairly accurate coming-of-age story. Liking stuff, or talking about deep stuff to others just to try to impress them, or perhaps to fit in. It's a natural thing to do and I was barely older than them when I did that. Almost 30 now, and I'm realizing that oddly enough sincerity is what is seen as the most impressive. I'm damn proud to say that I could do a double bill of a collection of Brakhage shorts and The Mummy, and love them both.

Also realizing that as I'm older my taste will obviously be vastly different, and those "classics" that I couldn't get into might be better now. I wanna give Bunuel, Fellini, Godard, and Bergman another chance. I did rewatch Bergman's Winter Light last year and absolutely loved that one, when I didn't give a shit about it 10 years ago.

A timeline of recent events...

1. Re-watched the 4K restorations of the Lord of the Rings trilogy (theatrical versions), and reminded of what I loved so much about the series.

2. Decide to finally re-watch the Hobbit trilogy, after not having seen them since they were in theaters. And just for the sake of curiosity, I choose to go with the extended editions.

3. Order blu-rays of the extended Hobbit trilogy on Amazon (all used, each one from a different seller - the extended cuts appear to be out of print already).

4. The entire order gets lost in the mail and I have to wait weeks to be refunded only 2/3 of what the order cost me in the first place (as of right now anyway - still in email contact with the lone holdout).

5. Purchase the extended trilogy digitally on Amazon Prime, after wasting weeks of time waiting for the physical copies that never arrived.

6. Contemplate all of the life choices that led me to this moment. :huh:

Dunno, it just looks amateurish and corny. As low budget bad films go, there's far worse...and I think Sia's film Music sort of has the worst film of the year award on lock for the time being. That film was made with a signficant budget, high production values, lots of talent involved, and, uh...



-3/10 rating on IMDb
-8% on Rotten Tomatoes
-4 Razzie Nominations, including Worst Picture (but also...a Golden Globe nod for Best Picture? possibly their worst pick of all time?)
-The near-universal disgust of people with autism everywhere
I would have happily watched anything other than this Godforsaken musical. “Fuckity fuck why don’t you watch my film before you judge it?” Sia tweeted in November, when outrage about the movie’s casting started to percolate. Well, I have watched the film, I am judging it, and it’s awful.

Wasn't GG accused so many times of taking part of corruption to the point that it's considered a front? No need to take them seriously in that case, and the fact that many Academy voters just vote based on GG stuff shows that you shouldn't take them seriously either.

There are only about 80 voters and they take bribes. The Tourist and Burlesque were inexplicably nominated, despite both being critical and box office flops, after Sony flew out over half the voters to an all-expenses-paid fancy trip to Vegas, complete with a private concert with Cher. There was outrage, jokes, then everyone still showed up next year. Pretty much the exact same thing happened this year with Emily in Paris. There are a lot of articles this year about how they were finally going to be held accountable after all this, but if the 2010 fiasco is any indication, everything will be back to square one next year.

I'm interested in seeing the Snyder Cut of Justice League because I assume it's gonna be his ambitious and probably crazy vision and I'd be curious to see it. However, I've noticed that it is starting a very scary trend.

I've seen a post from the director that a 5 hour cut of Godzilla vs King Kong is possible. Now the fanbase wants this to be made. I've also seen someone complaining that the new Mortal Kombat is ONLY an hour and 50 minutes, and that that runtime is not enough to flesh out the characters, which imo if the writer/director can't do then they are doing a bad job.

I've been working on a new rating system since last year sometime, one that's based on rating certain categories out of x amount. I've gone back to it every now and then to fiddle with it but I'm never fully happy. Current testing reveals I should be rating A LOT more films an 8 or 9 and I don't know if this is a flaw in the new system or a flaw in my current system :D

Only Lammetje knows where to put this, so I'll leave it here for now:
https://variety.com/2021/film/news/ital ... 234945537/
Italy has officially abolished film censorship by scrapping legislation that since 1913 has allowed the government to censor scenes and ban movies such as, most famously, Pier Paolo Pasolini’s “Salò or the 120 Days of Sodom” and Bernardo Bertolucci’s “Last Tango in Paris.”

For fuck's sake films need to be much shorter, not longer. 99% of 2+ hour films I have ever watched need a more aggressive edit. Maybe we can petition Aki Kaurismaki to direct Godzilla vs Kong 2.

I feel you.
It's a bad habit which probably is further supported by the way films are released on streaming services (Netflix/Prime/HBO). And then blockbusters for some reason (ticket prices? I have no idea) started to exceed 2:15h more often and often instead of going for the easy chill 1:45h. Sad!
Somehow I adore the abilities of directors such as Kaurismäki or Bergman to make short, concise films which don't lack. There are directors who excel at ranges of 140 to 200 minutes and did so many times, it surely can be great and epic, of course. Keeping it short is a virtue not many can do.

8 1/2
Cleo from 5 to 7
Seven Samurai
Paris, Texas
Black Panthers

Cool, thanks for sharing. I’m currently enjoying a free month and a half of the Criterion Channel (the standard 2-week free trial plus a free month they gave me for - I’m assuming - buying some Blu-rays during their recent flash sale). I think I’ll start paying for it once the free period ends, as it’s definitely worth it.

I'm guessing the recent-ish riots in the US had something to do with it. Plus the upcoming "Judas and the Black Messiah" (about Fred Hampton) may have something to do with it?

I got that offer as well. I was really excited about it until I tried it out... It just wouldn't play on my Android-box (a Roku-like streaming box) because the device is rooted. It wouldn't play on my laptop because I use Linux and it doesn't work on Linux (even if you enable the DRM scheme they use). When I finally got it to work on an old Windows laptop it buffered constantly. It took 2:19 to play the first 60 seconds of a movie (yes, I timed it because it was so bad). It was literally unusable for me. I hope it's better for other people.

Yeah while the content is great, I’ve also had some intermittent buffering issues with the Criterion Channel too...not “unusable,” but mildly annoying, admittedly. Not nearly as extreme as the issues you encountered, fortunately. I recently got a brand new smart TV that had the Criterion Channel “app” on it. Netflix and HBO Max are the other two streaming services I subscribe to and those never have buffering issues, I’ve only experienced that with the Criterion Channel, so something is a bit askew with their service I guess.

I suspect it's a matter of cost. Netflix and the other large commercial streaming services have extensive "CDN's" (Content Delivery Networks) with large servers distributed as widely as possible to deliver a smooth experience; the shorter the path from server to TV the fewer hiccups there will be. I'm guessing Criterion Channel doesn't quite have that kind of money, so they'll more likely have their servers "further away" from the viewers - measured in "Internet distance."

I probably just happen to live so far away from the nearest server that streaming is a painful experience.

There's a new streaming service out that streams vintage genre/exploitation/cult films.

https://www.cultpix.com/

Seems to still be invitation only, but they will probably be open to everyone quite soon. It's very new. Might be of some interest here. It is from the absolute country of Sweden, but works as a global service.

Watched the directors cut of Midsommar, and I prefer the shorter, edited version.
Some notes I made while watching
Spoiler

+additional car scenes, both when driving to Harga and transitioning to Harga.

+additional seconds of grue on rock precipice

+additional scene w kid almost being sacrificed at river. my suspicion why this scene was cut is that it alludes too strongly to villagers responding to Dani's voice/opinion and might serve as possible spoiler for future events . It's also one of only 2(?) scenes filmed at night.

+subsequent scene with exchange between Dani and Christian,  unnecessary because Christian is a dick already
Also, subjectively, the ending sequence seemed to have less impact, but I haven't seen the shorter version in awhile, so would have to watch again to see if there are any actual differences. It seemed shorter somehow, with fewer camera angles.

I'm about to start watching 'Rogue One' in 10 minutes, I've seen the original trilogy, the prequels and the first movie of the sequel but all of them have been some time. What do I need to know before jumping into Rogue one or is it a completely unrelated movie to the sequel ?

What do I need to know before jumping into Rogue one or is it a completely unrelated movie to the sequel ?
It's a prequel to A New Hope about a gang of misfits trying to prevent the building of the Death Star. Totally thrilling action film with great character development, light years ahead of The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi. (I still haven't even seen The Rise of Skywalker.)

I am not a Star Wars fan and I really like Rogue One and The Last Jedi.
