It'd probably look great projected at some retro 60s psych club or something but, I dunno, as a film in its own right I just found it really tedious.

Bored at work so I just watched ...

 


The Queen is Dead: Derek Jarman

Really just a pop video that Jarman made for The Smiths but it's my favourite thing he ever did. Great song too.

I'm not saying any of them are gonna worry Judi Dench or Helen Mirren come oscar time but I definitely don't see much of a leap in acting skills between say Megan Fox and a girl signed to Vivid.

i don't know. when you look at old marylin chambers movies (behind the green door or that one on the pool table, i forget the name) she looked like she was really enjoying the sex-- really, that happy fucky face had a delicious expression, she's wonderful and you can *relate* to her as a character. she was less wooden than anything you'll see today.

on the other hand when you watch a sasha grey with her dead eyes or a bobbi starr porn video, their screams are so contrived it's painful to listen-- best to watch them with the volume turned off. jenna jameson has a studio now, yes? and her porns try to have a storyline-- but they are just so bad it's a waste of footage. someone should please put just jaeckin back to work ("just' is his name, not an english word); those 70s soft porns were superior to most "erotic" shit made today, though i'm open to changing my mind if there's evidence in favor of that.

anyway so i checked out ariel rebel after reading your post, and while i'll agree the lady has a tight hot little body (really, yummy, and thank fuck no fake tits), i also noticed that all ther photos had the same facial expression-- which in the acting department puts her below fashion models. i haven't seen her "act" in pornos but perhaps she's not as terrible as the others i mentioned. megan fox is on movies mainly for good looks but at least she has 3 or 4 possible faces-- same thing w/ the lady with the gorgeous butt, what's her name, jessica biel.

but the stereotyped expression of ariel's photos doesn't really bode well unless you're casting her in something that specifically calls for that fake girlie look (just like the girlfriend experience called for grey's flat affect).

I know you're only picking up on something that i actually said but I wouldn't want to make too much of the acting issue. I stand by my defence of some individuals in porn being able to act but I'd obviously be lying if I said that was a major factor behind my general fascination with that world. To be honest with you I'm still trying to work it out myself. It's obviously more than just its tittilation factor that I like. Maybe its that in many ways it's actually closer to a kind of Hollywood that I love but which Hollywood itself has long since moved away from. Certainly, I'd say that an iconic figure ftom the period of Hollywood that I most like, say Jean Harlow, has more in common with someone like Taylor Wane (don't bother googling, you'll likely throw up) than she does with say Sandra Bullock.

I suppose in that sense I'm only thinking a variation of what a lot of underground film was doing when it turned to the idea of 'superstars'. (Although it's another argument entirely as to what the superstars were really meant to represent.)

i googled-- she's a fucking plastic monster!

but i think i get what you mean about jean harlow-- a sex symbol more than a "girl next door" actress? sure. but mang it takes more charisma than that silicone bundle.

if anything, i'd like to nominate brooklyn lee. i just found her doing "research" for this post-- she got some AVN award recently (i was looking for "best porn actresses") and she's got awesome curves, plus an actual ability to morph. unfortunately ugly tat on the belly ruins the view but she's hot

you mean warhol's? i've never much watched his movies. they make me wanna pull my eyes out. but if you're thinking maybe of a kind of kenneth anger film where actors are more models than actual actors, then yeah it could work. damn, i wanna make a movie with pornettas now. haaa ha haa. oh! russ meyer! russ meyer!!

I only meant that you're right, I did say that but that I wasn't being that serious. Without being totally un-serious, either.

Quote:

Exactly. That was me getting defensive about it. Some can, most can't but, either way, it has no real bearing on my enjoyment or interest in porn.

Quote:

See?!? Curiosity killed the cat. Haha.

Quote:

I'm probably fair to say that I'm not a big fan of girl-next-door types, either in porn or regular cinema. (Joan Crawfords famous response to being asked to tone down her makeup, "if you want the girl next door, go next door"). I love the sheer constructedness of a lot of stars. So I see Taylor Wane as a kind of grotesque equivalent to the kind of things Hollywood stars like Crawford or Rita Hayworth had to endure to maintain their 'industry standard' beauty. In one sense then, I'm basically celebrating a quite prohibitive and narrow period of Hollywood history and I certainly wouldn't like to justify it on any moral grounds, bit a fascination is a fascination. Like Lemmy collecting nazi memorabilia. By charisma, I maybe should've said 'presence' instead. It's fair to say that someone like Taylor Wane may not be the most charismatic of people but I do think she possesses a definite 'aura'. But that's likely just me.

Quote:

Yeah, Warhol is the obvious one, and Jack Smith. Warhol was disappointed at how bland Hollywood stars were becoming and cultivated his own stable of alternative stars that he felt far better embodied that early Hollywood thing he missed - while likely making some kind of critical point about stardom in general but, being Warhol, nobody's quite sure. But in essence, yeah, my fascination with Taylor Wane et al probably has some parallels with Warhol's fascination with say Candy Darling - although if anything, he was far more interested in charisma than I am.

Kenneth Anger's obsession with Hollywood overall has had a massive influence on how I look at cinema but I've never thought of him as being that interested in performers. He never cultivated 'stars' the way that Warhol or Smith did, being ultimately only really interested in directing.

An obvious factor in this is that Warhol, Smith and Anger were gay and that since then that kind of Hollywood re-appropriation thing has been pretty much marginalised as a kind of queer camp thing. As a straight guy, I find it interesting that I'm fascinated with something very similar but from a quite different perspective and set of motivations.

The big book on all this for me, and which remains my favourite book ever on Hollywood is Parker Tyler's Magic and Myth of the Movies. It was written in the 40s and is long out of print, but if you ever see it cheap, don't hesitate to get it. Besides anything else, Tyler was an amazing writer and the book's basically a very beautifully written fleshing out of some of the points I've tried to make here (as well as apparently being the inspiration behind Gore Vidal writing Myra Breckinbridge.) Although Tyler too was gay, his take on cinema seems motivated far more by an interest in surrealism than sexuality which makes it far more interesting from my point of view.

Any road, just watched this again ...

 


Duel

I've stopped giving marks out of ten but would otherwise give this a 9 or a 10. I just think it's a perfect film. In many ways a better example of many of Godard's ideas about low budget economy and efficiency than he ever managed before. No doubt Spielberg has his faults but I'm a huge fan and when he's able to make simple minimal frees movies like this, few can touch him, I think. Plus I love Dennis Weaver.

Sorry. Didn't see this.

Also, !@#$! I just wanted to let you know that while filming the second episode of Nobody's Laughing, one of my lights of the 3-piece kit I've been using for years now has officially died on me. That, combined with my new-found frustration for just how much my lights suck - I've decided to finally upgrade.

Just thought I'd cue you in ha. ALready picked up my diffusion papers.

is that Daria Nicolodi on that "Shock" poster? I really liked her in Deep Red (too annoying in Tenebrae for me, despite it being a very enjoyable film). I should get around to seeing some of Mario Bava's movies tonight.

Yes and I agree with demonrail that it's the best role she played in any movie. To be honest I never thought much of her as an actress before, just ok I guess.

Glad you liked Shock. There's nothing spectacular about it, just really well done, I think. It's Daria Nicolodi who really stands out in it for me. And Vigilante!! Blimey, I've not seen that in years. I remember liking it but can't remember much about it. I can't believe I still haven't seen Spasmo.

I hadn't watched ''Vigilante'' in a few years and I have to admit I am a sucker for the sort of movie where an entire city seems besieged by out of control gangs. Add to that that it's filmed in what looks like a derelict NYC and I am bought in a second. When you eventually get to watch ''Spasmo'', let me know if it was just me hallucinating while watching movie after movie in a row, or the first scene seems to have no particular relevance to the whole film at all. It's the one where the amorous couple get out of the car and are confronted by the hanged doll. I am not one to object to nice touches the director uses because they add to the atmosphere of the movie, but that seems like a whole scene aimed to serve a purpose the film doesn't really need. Of course it would be a different story if the director was someone like David Lynch or Werner Schroeter, but not ''Spasmo'', which is a very plot-dependent movie.

After re-watching ''Christiane F.'' I decided that what makes me love this movie more than anything is how it portrays Berlin as this very urban, nocturnal place inhabited by half-dead smackheads. I don't think the book is better, it just contains so much more dialogue which Uli Edel left out in favour of the cliched language you'd normally associate with someone naive falling flat on their arse because of drugs. Some of the humour on the book, as well as the mean language, is so cut out it always makes it more enjoyable for me to watch as a landscape sort of film.

Yeah, I've also got a thing for 70s urban dereliction. And I know what you mean when you talk about them as sort of 'landscape films'. There's a specific atmosphere to those settings.

I remember as a teenager going to the Scala in Kings Cross, when that area was still really sleazy. I'd never seen a prostitute or a junky before I went to Kings Cross and I'd always love coming out of the cinema after watching something like Maniac or Vigilante to see my own equivalent on the walk back to the station. It's criminal how clean Kings Cross now looks. Along with Soho it used to be my favourite part of London. (Soho's another area that's had much of its soul polished out of it now. Vegetarian options at the Coach & Horses?!?)
