I'm in Japan currently and Netflix Japan has a bunch of Sion Sono movies available for streaming, including several I haven't seen yet.

The "movies like this" for ai no mukidashi is almost surreal in the selections.

There are some okay'ish ones floating around, with some isolated cases of german words mixed in.

The dark unbottom’d infinite Abyss,
And through the palpable obscure find out
His uncouth way, or spread his aerie flight,
Upborn with indefatigable wings,
Over the vast abrupt, ere he arrive
The happy Ile?

Oh man , this has been one of the best film days of my life.

First I saw All about Eve (1950) which came in my top 25 of all films currently. The dialogue and acting is so strong in this one and there are some nice quotes in it.

Seems like I was not 100% fulfilled and after a dramatic first Bergman film 'Cries and Whispers (1972)' which I found to be dull and boring I decided to try Persona (1966). I'm now sitting on the 45th minute mark and needed a break to let it all sink in. It seems like this one will become an instant favourite for sure. Talking top 10 right now.

A24 is distributing Climax for a theatrical release here in the states, I just hope it's not so "limited" that it doesn't play near me. Looks awesome.

In March there's an all night film marathon playing in theatres. 8 films long. All are so bad it's good films. All on VHS. I looked them up and most seem to be hidden gems of that sort. The 2nd last film I can't find any info on (and not on CG) and the final film has a 720p rip online.

The problem is, ever since I was medicated it's pretty much impossible to stay up all night. It's also tax season where I may have to work weekends as well. Think I should try going? These are the films playing:

https://www.icheckmovies.com/movies/att ... creatures/
No icm link for Blood Hunter
https://www.icheckmovies.com/movies/soultangler/

People I trust didn't really enjoy Attack of the Beast Creatures. Perhaps I can go see the first 5 films and leave at 7 am.

I went to 2, maybe 3, 24-26 hour b-movie marathons when I was in or just out of college in the late 80s - some of the most fun I've ever had in a movie theater. I haven't heard of a single one of those and I consider myself at least SEMI-knowledgeable in this area, but then my knowledge is mostly of earlier crap films - still, 80s and 90s could be some gold there. I envy you, and you should definitely go!

If I didn't care much for Love (still good enough), will I like Climax (loved/liked everything else and Enter the Void is probably my favorite of his).

I didn't care for any of his other films, and I loved Climax, make of that what you will.

Also, when I said it's the most electrifying cinema-going experience, I meant exactly that. I was in no way implying that it was the "best" film I've ever seen in the cinema or anything like that.

Just received this info today on The Criterion Channel
The Criterion Channel, our new streaming service for movie lovers, will launch April 8 in the U.S. and Canada.

As a Charter Subscriber, you can start watching right now with our Movie of the Week series, featuring a new surprise every Wednesday from now until the official site launch.

We are so grateful to all of you who have signed up to be Charter Subscribers. Now it’s time to make it official and lock in your benefits, including an extended 30-day free trial (starting April 8) and reduced pricing for as long as your account stays active.

Happy viewing!
Your official 30-day free trial will begin when the Channel launches on April 8, and your card will not be charged until 30 days after that.

As a Charter Subscriber, however, you can start watching right now with our prelaunch Movie of the Week series, featuring a new surprise every Wednesday from now until the official site launch April 8.
https://www.criterionchannel.com/

So, they plan to have one film up a week until their launch on April 8th in U.S. and Canada. Right now, the only film on the site is Mikey and Nicky (1976).

If you read the privacy page on the criterion site, the legal language refers to it being a service provided by Vimeo so basically anything that supports Vimeo probably supports the criterion streaming service.

My question is, what's their support for international viewing going to be? I don't want to pay a subscription for a service I cannot use when I'm traveling.

I don't think they'll have any rights other than US, Canada and possibly UK (since they're also distributing there now). Anything else would be a (positive) surprise.

I just started watching Yoman or Diary by Perlov. It’s massively long but in 6 parts plus extras, each main part is around an hour. He just films out of his window, his family , and people, but also films events on tv. It’s an interesting intelligent running commentary that makes it more interesting. He is also an expert on films, and started this partly due to lack of other work. I look forward to other parts but am no way watching it all in one hit so lucky it is in parts. It completes TSPDT once again for me when completed.
