for some reason, I put on How To Talk To Girls at Parties and I don't hate it at all. I didn't know it was going to be weird

Watched the blu of Blood Simple the other night. First time in maybe a decade. Really good. I kinda miss that empty feeling they achieved on this film. As much as I love their later work, you always feel their presence hovering over the project and it's far less pronounced in this one and it makes a big difference in the way the movie moves and feels..

The extras with them and Barry Sonnenfeld watching and commenting on the movie is great.

Cries and Whispers (1972) - This movie is like a daydream about a childhood visit to Grief, the amusement park. All the reds and whites conspire to make this feel like something both dream and memory. It's devastating, spectacular, and, most importantly, faithful to its title.

People watching so many great movies in here. Especially all the Bergman. Persona is probably my favorite of his, but all those scenes of torment and creeping death in Cries and Whispers are seared into my brain. The doctor's verbal laceration of Liv Ullmann is brutal.

Why the hate? I thought it was pretty solid. Though I'm predisposed to like any movie with a wintry atmosphere.

really liked this. it actually has a pretty decent plot which i guess is an added bonus if, like me, you're really just watching it for the aesthetics. but then if you're watching jean rollin movies for anything other than the aesthetics you may be deranged. plot is irrelevant. great movie. i wonder what it was like to see rollin movies in the 70s when they were contemporary. and i wonder who the secret rollin of today is.

Recently been watching

The Friends of Eddie Coyle (1973)
Blast of Silence (1961) - Awesome classic loner cinema. Reccomended!
Couple of Sharknado's
Shock Waves (1977) - Surprisingly good! Came for the underwater nazi zombies, stayed for the weirdo creepy atmosphere
Mark of the Vampire (1935) - It's Bela and some wonderfully weird girl vampire and they're so great just standing around
Aliens: Zone of Silence (2017) - I pretty much watch any found footage horror, but it rarely goes above 4/10 for me. This one was worse. It has nothing going on.
Thunderbolt (1929) - I love George Bancroft & Von Sternberg silents. This one was okay, but it feels like it's got some scenes missing. Go see fucking Underworld before this one.

That reveal scene in Black Narcissus was breathtaking. One of many films I'd love to see on the big screen.

Definitely, loved the romance scene between Oharu and Katsunosuke. That scene and many others were just soul-crushing.

Yeah, pretty much any Powell or Pressburger film would be amazing to see in a theatre. Loved the way Black Narcissus just turns into an almost psychological horror film, found it jarring and brilliant. The use of Technicolour was beautiful and kinda wish they would bring it back if it's possible.

Saw Wind River, it was fine but really pushes the cheese at times. I actually didn't really like Eizabeth Olsen's performance, it was real awkward.

Sounds like your initial reaction wasn't too far off "pretty solid", and the paperback-thriller description is pretty accurate. But I liked how low-key it felt. And I thought everything was so shot through with the "meditation on loss" aspect -- and the feeling of hopelessness and isolation of the community -- that it didn't feel distinct from the murder-mystery narrative. The big flashback felt like a good culmination of that for me.

The flashback felt like they needed to service the audience and to explicitly show us what happened, which wasn't necessary at all. It also comes in the middle of an incredibly tense sequence, pretty much sterilizing the tension built up to that point... for what? To show a grotesque rape on camera? I don't think it was necessary and there were far better ways narratively to hint/point at the crew's involvement.

Some Came Running - I'm trying to rewatch more movies that I love. Even better on a second viewing, what an indictment of the 50s. Has anyone read the book? I don't associate James Jones with the type of sensitivity that bleeds all over this movie.

Also what's everyone's favorite CinemaScope shot?

my buddy who's read the book says it's overwritten garbage and a steep drop from From Here to Eternity and that the movie is way better. i bought it at a bookstore once but then realized after the fact it was the abridged version lol. i fucking love Shirley MacLaine in this movie and i have my doubts that James Jones coulda captured feminine power/agency the way Minnelli just kinda naturally did in every movie he ever made. Martha Hyer as a frigid embankment of 50s social conservatism being face to face with her in that classroom is staggering imo.
