I've been meaning to seriously rewatch Red Desert. I don't think I could ever talk eloquently about it but I unconditionally love Picnic at Hanging Rock.


I really really want to finally see the restored version of Heaven's Gate released by criterion last year but it's about 220min long so I doubt most ppl here would go for that. Right ?

I will watch pretty much anything.

I don't really have any ideas at the moment, so if sipang, or Lionheart, or someone else has an idea for a new movie, I'd be more than happy to watch whatever you guys choose.

Nice critique of the film, sipang. I definitely see your points about the stitching of the scenes. I thought it was clever how he did the death sequence for the stripper, as it was surprisingly low key ( compared to everything else).

I'd think:

Claire's Knee
La Belle Noiseuse

Claire's Knee is great. My Night at Maud's might be my favorite out of the six moral tales.

That is long. It's probably the same reason why I still haven't got around to watching Seven Samurai.shog[1].gif

Don't have a laptop at the moment so unfortunately won't be able to upload any film/participate frown.gif

I´d like it if sipang chose the next one. My suggestions might be a bit mainstream-ish (for cinephiles, mind you) and I think some of the ones he´s mentioned would be great to discuss. I´d like it if it were a french movie, for selfish reasons, ´cause It would give a chance to practice my french.:hide:

I think I might do one sometime soon. Would everyone be okay with a Hitchcock film? I know that most of the films we've watched have been a bit more esoteric for "Westerners" (in a language other than English, oftentimes made outside Hollywood, "artsy" haha), but I think Rope would be a pretty great film to watch with a group.

If anyone objects I could try to think of something else of course.

I'd be okay with any Hitchcock.

Cool stuff. I've got a couple books on Hitchcock lying around somewhere—one where Truffaut interviews Hitchcock about his films, and some other one full of essays—and some other random essays specifically about Rope. I could probably put together a tidy little write-up if you guys would like.

Is she actually dead when he tries to wake her up ?

But Rohmer's masterpiece remains, indubitably

I have a couple of ideas, not sure if they're good but yeah I can do that.


Just need to know if @thewho13 goes first. Only saw Rope once as a kid and I can't remember a thing about it so definitely down with that one.

When she and Jep are laying in bed and he asks her if she sees the ocean on the ceiling. It's the scene right after that... of her foot partially in the shot with the window slowly swaying open. Also, in the montage scene following it, a restaurant patron gives his condolences to her father as he appears to be in mourning.


Was not aware Rohmer directed a music video. shog[1].gif

^nice

I enjoyed his arrogant condescension , didn't like where it ended up though

There's never room for a shot --however beautiful or poetic-- to breathe, there's never time for it to last long enough so that it could maybe elicit an emotion

This, if not intentional to begin with, was very necessary. Any chance to pause and you lose the moment, realizing you're just going through a bunch of fluff. In effect, the viewer becomes Jep's realization of the faux foofoo friends, etc.

Haha I thought of that but I think you give way too much credit to Sorrentino biggrin.gif


But yeah, why not ? Authorial intent be damned.

But if you're fooled by the bling bling cinematography from beginning to end what's the point of the film exactly ?

If you'd like I can upload Rope this evening and then post some text references on Thursday.
