Ah, Oscar season. It's raining DVD screeners.

Unfortunately, the only two I've seen:

1- Out of the Furnace. Mostly sucked. Can't watch Christian Bale anymore. He's always ACTING, y'know? Always giving such a PERFORMANCE. Casey Affleck is so much more interesting by doing so much less.

2- Lone Survivor- It begins with "Based on a True Story" and ends with footage of the real soldiers who battled it out with the Taliban in Afghanistan (and lost). What's inbetween is horrendous bullshit. "Hollywood" in the worst sense of the term. Deeply insulting to the real men and their loved ones. No has ever died in battle in slow-mo backed by a dramatic symphony. Acting was mostly good, but the actors were betrayed by a shallow, opportunistic director/liar out to make some propaganda.

Today and tomorrow: BLUE JASMINE and WOLF OF WALL STREET. C'mon Woody and Marty. Don't let me down.

And yes, I'll get around to Blacanieve. Swear.

i watched volume one of "american avant-garde film" (or something like that) and it was the most boring thing ever.

i realized that 99% of the time "avant-garde film" means: white people making a bunch of random shapes on the screen by a variety of methods to the tune of some sort of chaotic sountrack (with the inclusion of unfamiliar "ethnic" tracks).

now i'm not opposed to experimentation but come on! please make something that i can care about without the use of psychedelic "wow, look at those colors, maaaan" drugs. experimentation doesn't have to mean "random shapes moving to the sound of music."

maybe i'm being unduly harsh, but it was all unwatchable, and the modern music video has improved so much over those early pioneers as to render them irrelevant. it's not like watching fritz lang or buster keaton and saying "wow, this still works a century later."

i'd rather watch hbo series, sorry.

eta: along these lines, i find "born into brothels" to be much more truly avant-garde. putting cameras in the hands of kids = innovation.

shit, i just sent it back. all i remember was that it was in part paid for some andy warhol foundation. lemme pull up some info…



http://www.filmpreservation.org/dvds...ant-garde-film

i got disc 1:

This disc includes the following short films: "Film No. 3: Interwoven," "Notes on the Circus," "Here I Am," "Fake Fruit Factory," "Odds & Ends," "Eyewash," "Peyote Queen," "7362," "Aleph," "Note to Pati," "By Night with Torch and Spear," "The Riddle of Lumen" and "The End."

they were all very boring to me. no maya deren or kuchar brothers or kenneth anger. lots of home films shown in negative, lots of dancing colors and shit like that. shaky cameras, etc. even promising titles like "peyote queen" were disappoints. the only one with a narrative was "the end" but it was like a bad short story written by a continental philosophy student who liked to ramble too much. oh, there was one documentary of sorts that showed special ed children playing with blocks and stuff. just looking. but i've seen kindergartens and nursing homes and special ed people, and it's not like this was "7 up" or anything. so it was all boring. fuck, i sound mean. i don't mean to be mean. but i had much higher expectations. maybe i was in the wrong frame of mind.

Andy Warhol, Mario Banana (No. 1) (1964)

---

now i remember that fruit factory which is another "documentary" was there too. i mean is just a camera on some people making fake fruits with some sort of clay. maybe he thought because they were mexican they were instantly interesting. i mean it was just workers doing their work. fucking edison did that in 1895 and he didn't exoticize brown people.

uncle lobster's notes on the circus was another thing: a circus. in fast forward. with a soundtrack.

uncle lobster is no jack smith.

also, no su friedrich? fuckem.

oh, btw, i realize there was a film by joseph cornell there and yes there was one thing that looked pretty good (probably his) but at that point i was tired of dancing colors.

there was also some footage of upside down factory workers with a track by john zorn and while i enjoyed the zorn music i went to wash dishes.

Wow! There's some of my fave films ever on that list. Little Stabs at Happiness, Aleph, Chumlum!!!!! I don't know what to say. You like Anger and Jack Smith but you didn't like Chumlum???? That just doesn't compute.
