been working through the director’s cut of “until the end of the world”

 


i haven’t had the 5 hours to sit through the whole movie; and therefore: chapters

wenders made this in 19...90? (came out in 91). i’m thinking in today’s world it would have made a glorious tv show. as a movie, 5 hours is too long. as a tv miniseries perhaps it would have had a better structure.

to think of the possibilities and the would have beens...

but i didn’t intend to wax nostalgic about loss. though it can’t be helped, looking at solveig dommartin, no?

ah! anyway...

Saw two Spanish movies on Netflix tonight:

 

English title: the Invisible Guest

Good suspenseful crime thriller. It's not dubbed to English though which is a bit difficult to get used to if you as me don't understand a word of Spanish.

 

subtitle: the blacksmith and the devil

This is based on an old Basque fairytale. I felt like watching a Guillermo del Toro type of movie and selected this one randomly. This one is dubbed to English which makes it a lot easier to understand. I think Basque is the original language of the entire movie which is quite rare and would have been even illegal some decades ago.

It's quite good as well, definitely worth your time.

Men In Black International however is one big disappointment. Bad story, bad/unsympathetic actors, bad/not funny humor.

Saw The Invisible Man in theaters yesterday. A fun, enjoyable horror movie. Between his last movie Update, and now this, Leigh Whannel is making some cool mid-budget movies worth seeing.

Rewatched Escape From New York. It's been ages since I'd last seen it. What had impressed me the most upon rewatching it is how much atmosphere was created with so little. I mean, they created a (for the most part) convincing depiction of NYC streets and buildings in St. Louis, using derelict buildings, cleverly crafted models, juxtapositions and whatnot.

What also struck me is just how dark and grimey it was shot, the sales-pitch must've been an actual risk at the time. I mean, I was aware it was, but I underestimated the scope. Russel spends a lot of his screen-time roaming dingy places, his face often entirely covered by thick shadows. Something you'd be hard-pressed to find in movies these days, as there seems to be an obsession with images that are clearer than clear and sharper than sharp. In terms of atmosphere it is a bona-fide masterpiece.

I have to admit though that the rough-around the edges approach doesn't just apply to its visual style. Plot-wise it's all over the place from time to time and there are a few real headscratchers in there. But damn, it's impressive what Carpenter was able to craft atmospherically with what little he had at the time.

The Kingmaker. Bio of Imelda Marcos. Really good, her attitudes remind me of those of the Shah and Haile Selassie in Kapuscinski‘s books

Watched Heat for the first time since about 15 years ago. What a great film. Pacino is hamming it up a tad (although his line about women's asses touches my soul). However, I actually think this is one of de niros best performances.

The one character I felt is really underrated is the wife of the convict who had just gotten out of jail and it trying to keep on the straight and narrow. When she finds out he's dead, man, your heart just breaks for her.

I watched Rise of Skywalker this weekend. Waste of time. I can barely remember what the "plot" was.

I am one of the few people who thought the last Star Wars film was super fun and enjoyable, but this one left me with so many stupid questions.

Why did they pretend to kill Chewbacca for like 4 seconds? What was the point?

How did hundreds of ships use warp speed to appear between a fleet of ships and a planet? How did they warp jump THROUGH the planet, and how did they all know to stop warp jumping so they would all be exactly aligned?

Why was Leia even in this?

Why
why
why why

delicatessen

 


i had not seen this in a very long time so i didn’t remember most of the plot.

it was fun and funny and dark and exciting and funny again.

perfect for quarantine as a warning that we might devolve to that, lol.

and it was fun also to connect it retrospectively to the movies that came after—city of lost children, amélie, micmacs, etc. now i can’t remember a ton from city of lost children except for visuals lol. micmacs has many elements in common with delicatessen though—especially the troglodistes.
