1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    perfect, thanks!

    i have two really good picks for mine (in 6 months), although they're not so much about film techniques as just neat topics. perhaps too low brow :(

    It should be done in about three hours. The upload is 1.5 gigs, though I've found I require at least twice the space of the downloads to receive them.

    Clearing the hidden drop box cache of old files should free up a ton of space, though. To do that (on windows xp, anyway), click start, then run, type in 'explorer', then enter, then, at the address bar on top, enter the path to your drop box folder (C:\DROP BOX\...whatever), and add \.dropbox.cache to the end. You might see a huge list of old files you can safely delete. (Try this before grabbing the current download).

    I´m glad people have been able to watch the movie, except shah [​IMG] I thought the upload hadn´t worked smoothly. I´ll post some thoughts on it tomorrow.

    Elsewhere, should we be taking down some of the previous films? My dropbox was practically full with the last one....

    Not entirely sure what I was expecting, but it certainly wasn't that :puzzled:

    somebody reupload hanabi please? didn't get to finish watching. or pm me a public link from dropbox.

    instead of labeling the entertainment pack by number it would be helpful if somebody labeled what the contents were

    LOL
    Well I think I'm unaware of a lot of historical context, but I was left with a lot of unanswered questions. I enjoyed the scenes with the Rolling Stones, that was a really neat insight to the recording process. But what were the voice-overs? Were they relevant at all? "All about Eve"? Who was she? I can appreciate the "meta-ness" of filming a documentary team in a documentary style, and I can appreciate the stylistic choices of the woods and the yes and no answers, but it's still left me baffled. Although maybe that's the point? Does she represent hippy politics? And the militia in the junk yard - Black Power? That didn't feel explained. Why did they throw the guns all the way one way and then throw them all the way the other way? And the graffiti? And the magazine shop? It felt like 90% of the film went over my head :embar: Hopefully someone can enlighten me.
    Something I noticed: despite there being a lot of talking in the film, it felt as if the director didn't care whether the audience heard it or not (with the exception of the voice-overs) - I was constantly straining to hear over the sound of foghorns, feedback, gunshots, other people talking, passing trains etc.

    Thanks, jwjp! I prefer to withhold my own thoughts for the moment, but I can answer some of your more objective questions. :D

    Just as background and by way of introduction:

    The film was meant to be known as One Plus One. The new title, Sympathy for the Devil, as well as the song's final or album version, were added later, and without Godard's consent, to capitalize on the involvement of The Rolling Stones. Upon learning of this at the film's premiere at the London Film Festival in 1968, Godard reportedly rose from his chair, belted the producer, and stormed out of the theater.

    The voice overs are a mixture of both political texts and pornographic literature with the names of the protagonists replaced by political figures. The narrator claims to be a Bolivian revolutionary exiled to the more scatological bits of London (possibly even a public restroom).

    The black militants read from Blues People, Amiri Baraka's study of Afro-American culture published under the pseudonym LeRoi Jones (in another segment, one of the reporters asks, Did you call LeRoi Jones?) as well as a smattering of more revolutionary texts, including a Black Panther book and (I think) something by Eldridge Cleaver.

    The woman interviewed is a character named Eve Democracy, played by the objectively luscious Anne Wiazemsky. Wiazemsky also plays the graffitist seen defacing / sloganizing / (detourning?) cars, walls, and buildings with spray paint, though it's unclear -- at least to me -- whether she represents Eve Democracy, or another fictional character, or the actress herself (ie are the graffiti scenes another documentary section or not?, etc.)

    Discuss.
