making a good film is a lot harder than just pointing a camera at people talking.

Well, depends what they're talking about. Also, do they have clothes on?

---

Because it is hard to make a movie, I try to be very generous. I'll look through no-budget things on youtube and every year I go to a small local filmfest. Pretty much everything is bad and I've never seen a flicker of genuine talent, no matter how hard I squint.

But there MUST be some kid who came up with a good idea and shot it in the backyard, and the film is now one of the more brilliant things on youtube. Sadly, finding the fucking thing will be impossible.

even if it's just people talking (e.g. my dinner with andre) it's a lot harder than "just pointing a camera" for sure.

===

anyway, the internet is best suited for short form. people have made some reasonably good things, like "the guild", or "dr horrible", and those have been professional, and then you have stuff like house of cards on netflix.

of course it takes lots of money which is why netflix is the only one who has made it work in such a scale.

I agree with evol here.. the internet used to be a great medium to find top shelf local and DYI art but now? Its so flooded with shite that its not worth bothering... I miss early 2000s era when you could google and find interesting and obscure things of value

8.5/10

Would give it a 9 if I didn't think most secondary actors played better than Nicholson.

ha ha ha-- that movie is awesome

so much hope for broke alcoholic writers (or artists) in that film.

you can check it out for free on youtube

if you liked that you might also like factotum (another bukowski-based movie)

--

i've watched a bunch of things lately but i'd recommend

 


life is sweet - (mike leigh, 1990). great characters. you'll start laughing your ass off and by the end you might get a bit weepy. the criterion disc has a bonus of several "5 minute films" leigh made as a proposed tv show (you can find those on youtube)

 


the match factory girl - (aki kaurismäki, 1990). i have no words for the greateness of this guy. he just blows my mind every time with his simplicity. here it's the opposite of the movie above, where you'll start a bit weepy and end up laughing your ass off.

 


ip man 2 - (wilson yp, 2010) dammit, i missed the first IP MAN because there were so many ip man movies (eg. wong kar-wai's "the grandmaster") that i thought i had already seen it. big mistake, watch the 2008 ip man first. this is a bit of a bullshit movie, but great martial arts and to see sammo hung kick ass in his overweight carcass is just awesome.

 


in the house (françois ozon 2012) - not a great movie but a good one, and lots of fun. billed as a "thriller" (a manipulative little sociopath is at the heart of it) it is only great comedy for a lot of the duration. too many things to say and i don't want to write an esay about it but if you're a fan of ozon you shouldn't miss this.

yes! fun stuff. what i loved the most were the insane sets, and all the references to terry gilliam, and tilda swinton's spectacular performance (i only realized it was her much later). the story itself was good but a bit refried, so what i was left with was a great aesthetic feeling from all the fantastic visuals but not a sense of a great original story. still, great fun. i think i wrote about it a few pages back.

Actually went to see Hobbit 5 Armies, it was the best of the 5 movies i think, unrelenting violence and battles - some of it was quite humorous - I thought the 1st installment was awful, so I was surprised this was so enjoyable. Is there part 3? everything seemed to be resolved at the end

She has requested a movie that does not require constant attention to keep up with who is fighting who.

okay so no scifi i was gonna say no fantasy either? but maybe she does like fantasy (you guys watch game of thrones i think?).

so, tell us what she likes. you said she liked "el sexo y lucía". does she like spanish movies? what themes, etc? any actors she prefers? any directors? any languages/cultures?

i like playing this game. gimme some info and i'll give you... 5 possible ones. yes?
