Yeah Jessica Chastain will win this year. I'm surprised at the response to Django, I thought it was a blast.

Jessica is quite the workhouse it seems. Good choice of roles. And her lips are mighty pouty.

I watched Django at work this past weekend. To be truthful, I didn't know one thing about the movie before pressing play......what a movie! While watching it, I thought to myself how is it I hadn't heard ? ? ?

So - what responses are you referring to?


Hope to watch it again this weekend:

Cabin in the Woods

The last half hour of this film effectively saves it for me, going from "what was all the fuss about?" to, "oh, so that's what all the fuss was about."

just finished part 2 of barry lyndon-- watched part 1 last week

to those who think blu-ray makes no difference---- daaamn it looks amazing

web pictures don't do justice, but i believe stills from this movie ought to be hanged in modern art museums all over the world, as postmodern reconstructions of classic painting


 


 


 



absolutely exquisite. the way kubrick made use of bad actors to fit his style is just genius.

i know you like the more what should i say the more actor-oriented films? dramas, you know, what bresson called filmed theatre, and yes there are great great movies in that style, but this one is just so much eye candy, so much of a visual pleasure, primarily, and then only everything else.

it can be exhausting and boring and all that-- but it's beautiful.

like i don't know- l'avventura is also visually gorgeous slow and boring.

anyway i hope you get to see it-- the bluray is the wrong aspect ratio, but it's still amazing for the quality it brings to the screen

^^ look, even this man calls it boring. but i call it delicious!

well they are "boring" in that a lot less happens between the actors than in other films. the narration is more visual in style.

if you consider that the snappy dialogue of "the maltese falcon" makes it one of demonrail's favorite movies you can see how the polar opposite of more cinematography-based films wouldn't tickle him so much. (im going to venture a guess and presume he's probably not crazy about"kooyanisqatsi" or tarkovski's "solaris" either.)

these are difficult movies in general because they depart from the conventions of filmed theatre that inform traditional film. you have to get accustomed to their language and that's not always an easy transition-- and even if you get their alternative conventions it doesn't mean that the movie itself has to be your thing. i think i get matthew barney but i still hate a number of his movies.

and while i take delight in many so-called boring movies, i really draw the line at david lynch's inland empire wankery-- that's both boring an irredeemable for me, except for some select snippets. maybe some day i'll have a chance to alter my evaluation of it, but definitely not today. regardless, david lynch doesn't need me to love his every movie and i'm sure he's not even aware of my existence.

That's a great interview but you're definitely right. I tend to go for quite simple, actor-oriented stuff, which clearly isn't Kubrick's forte. I don't mind extravagance, I love Fellini, but what separates him from Kubrick is his human/emotional side. As I like to say (ad nauseum) the most 'human' character in any of the Kubrick films I've seen was HAL. As a technician he's beyond criticism but my preference will always be with those movies more atuned to the human element, be it a Ford western or a Laurel and Hardy comedy. Give me Renoir over Godard all day long. It's the same with literature. As unfashionable as they now are, I'll still take a Dickens or a Steinbeck over pretty much anything else. And I much prefer dogs to cats.

Although I don't want to paint myself too much into a corner. I'm not just a sentimentalist. Some filmmakers I like a lot are a little on the 'cold' side (Antonioni, Hawks, etc) but they're definitely an exception to the rule.

Edit: I don't like Koyana-whatsitsface at all and Solaris isn't my favourite Tarkovsky movie, but I love Mirror, so it's never straightforward. It's about where you draw the line, for El Symbols it's Inland Empire, for me it's anything that might potentially remind me of a Peter Greenaway film - but then I like The Cook, the Thief so, again, it's never straightforward.

As an aside, a film critic who had an enormous affect on helping me define my taste was Manny Farber, in particular his essay 'White Elephant Art vs. Termite Art'. Not suggesting anyone read the whole thing (although it's short enough that you could). Either way, even if Farber himself later went on to distance himself from its message, it still pretty much nails a general position for me.

Yer mad?! There's been Dickens bumming overload the last few months, what with it being the 150th anniversary of his death or the like.

But yeah, I too have not seen Barry Lyndon. Admitting that automatically wipes all praise and "I LOVE KUBRICK ME!" comments I've made on here.

I've finally decided that it depends why you're watching a movie.

L'aventura is dull as fuck. Admit it. Not everyone who was chanting "Cut!" at the Cannes premiere was wrong. SUPERBAD is far more interesting.

And yet, __ ___ ____ {fill in the blanks}


---
At the end of a hard day, are you going to put on a slow, you-must-eat-your-vegetables-and-watch-this-movie-or-else-you-will-be-a-drooling-fool film?

Then again, when you're brain's on fire fire and hungry for sustenance, isn't anything less than excellent an affront?

---

Small quibble: These art films are more theater-oriented than most Hollywood fare. Usually a small cast, few locations. Dialogue is preferred over action. Etc. I think of Bergman very easily switching between theater and cinema.

And art films don't always equal visual grandeur. We can all think of examples of great art films that are on the crude side. And we can all think of visually stunning, beautiful films that otherwise fail to rise to the status of art.

Has anyone ever read John Simon? He's the biggest dick critic (but a great prose stylist) because he dislikes/hates damn near everything.

In an intro, he points out that when one loves something such as cinema, one becomes very discriminant. Nothing less than the best will do for the loved one. He'll never, for example, enjoy a John Waters movie.

Is he right?
