Joanna Shimkus in The Last Adventure (1967) I know her from a few French films. She was born in Nova Scotia to an Irish Catholic mother and Lithuanian Jew father. >>2490 Wow, I'd never seen that
>>2492 Yes, Shimkus (or Shikmus i thought) was pretty good decent looking in that movie/era. IRL she was a massive coal burner french jew lol so she got much fewer cameras on her by gentlemen magazines and soft-handed auteurs.
>>2518 She dated more black guys than Sidney Poitier? He seems like a nice enough sort but it's a shame her kids don't look like her.

>>2519 She was based on Marseille and the french always rumor that scene (in which she had a good part as one of the token pixie hippie girl, also supposedly Belmondo) being degeneration town with the swinging and the migrants, some movies explore this kinda scene about banging dirty people on the street, Emmanuelle i think shows this in either the first or second movie, there's also the Black Emmanuelle and Emmanuelle goes to Africa stuff so yeah. Kinda how the Paris scene was degenerated with politicians and ambassadors/royalty, for example Alain Delon was supposedly a playmaker there and rumor says stuff was filmed at times to blackmail or have dirt on people. He had some controversy regarding that, it didn't fully leave him because one of his bodyguards/security dudes got butchered and thrown in a garbage bin so stuff got serious in the media. There's also the whole can of worms regarding the Trudeau's stuff in their town and when they travelled to Paris. It's >the french, what could we expect? shame because their girls always have that exquisite innocent touch yet are complete maniacs, kinda how the slav girls always look punkish and aggressive but were supposedly prudes and passives.

A thread for Nordic cinema. Woke shit not welcome.
The modern Scandinavian countries are the worst liberal shithole ever, so I avoid most of their new stuff. I like the scenery and atmosphere of the place, which could be a great setting or background for films. Could you recommend some brooding, atmospheric films from this region? On a not very related note, does anyone find viking stuff in current pop culture so fucking gay? Everything about vikings from Hollywood and their allies, even a fucking Japanese comic (Vinland Saga) also features a tranny character in the Middle Ages. Is it because they're trying to feminize masculine characters into emotionally driven, bumbling idiots who submit at the will of women? On the other hand, I'm watching the Raven trilogy by Hrafn Gunnlaugsson and really enjoy them. Classic "Spaghetti Western" in Iceland and with Vikings. I've completed the first one, When the Raven Flies, which is said to be based on Yojimbo. There's something charming about the type of hero that sets a goal and follow it with determination and competence (at first). It's fun to follow them on their journey and look for their next success, or failure. The music imitates western films but is played on synthesizer, sounds hilarious but also... charming. I guess I like western as a genre and reinventing it in an exotic setting is very enjoyable.
In the Shadow of the Raven (1988), second movie of the Raven trilogy.

>>1729 >does anyone find viking stuff in current pop culture so fucking gay? Yes. It's token and watered-down "right-wing/trad" media to give white men a bone to chew on and idolize (and get income off of), and has been pop-cultured, subverted, appropriated, and marginalized to death only 2nd to Hawaiian culture to where I wonder if non-Nordic understanding of it is as good as theirs. >Is it because they're trying to feminize masculine characters into emotionally driven, bumbling idiots I can attest it is so for Vinland Saga as the preface message in the early volumes by the mangaka stated that he is a cowardly man who wonders why he'd make such a comic, that men are stupid for wasting their mother's love to die on a battlefield, and generally the sickeningly preachy shoehorned ideal that post-war Japanese have to stride towards peace and liberalism.

>>859 Just found this, sounds great: >Cinetrain: Russian Winter (2013) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t99k6_OlUqs >A unique journey through winter Russia from Murmansk to the Baikal. Six awarded short films taking a fresh look at the most common stereotypes about Russia: Cold weather, Women, Vodka, Lada cars, Bears and the “Russian soul”… There’s always more to stereotypes than one may think. >Cinetrain is a documentary filmmaking experience. It’s a working method that is inspired by the work of Alexander Medvedkin and his Cinetrain in 1930’s Soviet Russia. For this project, in January 2013, a group of 21 filmmakers from 14 countries met for the first time in Moscow. On the next day they were sent on a trip to make films that would explore widespread stereotypes about Russia. Over the following month, they shot and edited the 6 short films that compose this almanach. They traveled 10 000 km by train to engage in a dialog with the Russian people and to understand the ideas the Russians have about themselves. Same style as the Norilsk documentary. Russia is such an extreme, yet beautiful and misunderstood place.

Does the community on Cinematik or Cinemageddon actively discuss cinema ? I am on secret-cinema but I do not see them discussing , maybe their discussion forum thread is locked for higher class user, Moreover is Cinematik or Cinemageddon recruiting ?
In terms of the Tik, they do discuss it sometimes, i mostly remember the obituary or general recs but not that much activity at least a year ago. Don't use it that much because it's tough as nails to maintain a good ratio without using outside tools like seedboxes or the such. Also it's mostly DVD9/BD integral rips so not much use unless you like the bonuses, which are a pain to encode anyways after downloading the entire thing. >Recruiting Can't say i recommend waiting for that unless you personally know a mod/high-rank there.
Cinemageddon has more film discussion than Cinematik. There's not a huge amount of discussion on these sites because the userbase has been there a long time and the novelty has worn off. Invites are limited to avoid potential trouble from interlopers, but that also reduces the vibrancy of the forums.
KG seems like the perfect place then

[JW18 ~ 12/01/2019] A thread for bong media, both for bongs and for fags from elsewhere who want to see something non-pozed so expect the thread to be weighted towards older shows and films. Starting with an absolute classic from the last decade before British culture started to disappear in the face of American cultural dominance. Also Michael Caine. magnet:?xt=urn:btih:E40A5E9641 8B1F77E22FF71A2DAC E9F31BA7FCB9 remove the spaces but I can't speak as to the quality of the torrent, if someone knows where to hunt for better ones with active seeders I'm all ears

>>636 Opposite here. Bug sounds kind of childish which is odd as usually the bong/commonwealth english version is the less formal name.
>>635 I'm speaking of culture which is relatively a whole other bag of worms not language and while British English is hardly better you're right that the American English language has infected every language it's encountered, for example in Russia it's extremely common to use a transliteration of an English word rather than the a term that exists for it.
>>627 The old "TV plays" (usually from BBC) are fertile creative ground with a good stable of directors, sometimes reaching the quality level of a standalone film.

>>1766 >My experience from CG people is that I don't really understand their sense of humor Do you mean humor on the forums? What specifically confuses you? The main users have thousands of posts. I don't find their smug interpersonal banter very funny. But torrent descriptions for bad movies can be entertaining.
>>1766 I'm curious why you generalize CG that much, are you looking at the Boob thread?... I know you are! Jokes aside, I understand what you mean but I'm sure that if you look into serious films you'll find an informative discourse on CG. Maybe you're stuck on the sludge-fest (which in my opinion should be celebrated, even though I do agree "B-film audience" can even be used as a derogative, there's no place like CG. Same goes for KG, and both of their forums should never be forgotten, specially posts dating before 2010...) >>2404 I haven't seen that one, from the trailer it looks very interesting. I watched Let the Corpses Tan and I hate to say that I hated it. It started off promising, with the colorful setting (reminded me of Le Mepris) but the final act and the abrupt editing with the ticking clock really took me out of the film, and I was looking forward to it.
>>2410 I saw Amer soon after it was released so my memory is fuzzy. It's divided into discrete segments -- basically individual short films tied together by a larger premise. I don't remember the ending as anything amazing, but the film is more about exploring suspenseful situations while reviving giallo style.
>>2411 I definitely got that vibe from the trailer, the one I saw was strangely very low res and it showed ambiguous scenes shot in red and black so I can't really say anything until I properly watch it

Cinema is shite Anonymous 07/24/2021 (Sat) 17:24:18 No.1710 [Reply]
Almost everything has a slant, a bias, a nauseating moral tale behind that makes the act of watching unbearable once you're old and receptive. Terrible characters with terrible motivations, fake love stories, manichean villains, clumsy writing… the dreaded sense of being preached for 2 hours. I would go to the church or read the news if I wanted that. To me the only good films are those where all pretense is abandoned like a whore on the side of the road; films where the director embarks it almost like a scientific experiment, deprived of tropes, where the characters have their own motivation and not those of the director/writer/politics of the time. Abstraction, simplification; expression limited to stylistic & narrative choices. Nonexistent psychological studies; characters should be like microbes under the microscope of the filmmaker -absolute objectivity in the writing aspect. Something like Un Flic by Jean Pierre Melville is the perfect example of a film deprived of all the ills that plague the medium. Only films like these are the ones I can watch without feeling repulsive afterwards.

>>1773 I'm going to say that there isn't despite hating them because it is sure to upset you.
>>1710 It seems you have problems with moralization? At least partially. I think part of this is, the "will of power" of artists to change reality according to their beliefs and values. Even popular film reviewers seem to want to make films "more moral". As in; "I want to create a society that is more beneficial to what I perceive my best interests to be." See: Why Modern Movies Suck - They Teach Us Awful Lessons The Critical Drinker https://yewtu.be/watch?v=Dnuqp4_K7ik 10:49 Another rather similar thought is; what I think is, the honest belief amongst people that others thinking for themselves is dangerous to them or what they value in some way, and must be destroyed. Also: https://encyclopediadramatica.online/Moralfag
>>2399 *will to power
>>2399 >films "more moral". As in; "I want to create a society that is more beneficial to what I perceive my best interests to be." Ironically that's the artist's personal reflection on his work, many like to put their values into their work, others prefer to showcase things as is ("realism") but problem is how to do such things. It's the case of doctrines around the "show don't tell" and "character/context consistency" a director and the writer have to do, in modern mainstream films for cattle these aspects are done poorly with many "lessons" being done telling but not showing but when they do show it the context the film was building itself around bends or stop existing to cater to said consequential actions that don't seem like consequences but inventions made out of thin air and annexed. Capeshit, to use a popular example, is chuck filled with this kind of antics but the nigger cattle ignores it for the sake of the romanticized ending, an example would be Spiderman 2, considered a classic in the genre but with a frankly horrible ending not even kids with consciousness could eat back in the day. The other popular examples of this do the other way, they "subvert" or create an anti-thesis of said effect but end up being as horrible because they do not build anything to create the necessary context to show it, they merely do the same but in the ending they commit the same mistakes but with a non-happy ending but still as romanticized or go cold turkey and stop it out of nowhere with no consequential inertia towards the previous actions. Jews should not be allowed in any writing department, hell, jews shouldn't be allowed anywhere near a film. Fuck it, jews shouldn't be allowed. >Moralfag Kinda a strange example of these phenomena, it was used as a pejorative back in the day by both edgy kids who wanted senseless mayhem or by some with a valid reason that some things were using standards too defined of another level of context or work. The classic example was Fist of the North Star, many hated that the main character despite being powerful used most of his power to do good and not create himself a harem while others rightfully said the premise was too rigid, invariable and the character too ideologically strong and unchanging for such a juvenile program meant for teenagers looking for people to get hit.

Iranian Cinema Anonymous 09/01/2020 (Tue) 15:17:57 No.366 [Reply] [Last]
[JW05 ~ 05/10/2020] Iranian cinema warrants its own thread as the style of them and their directors are distinct enough to stand out and level up with Europeans. The 5 movies here are classics or well-known to start with. The Death of Yazdgerd recalls the kangaroo court upon a family of accusing the refuging last shah of the Sassanian dynasty. Where Is the Friend's Home details a child trying to give his friend his homework he took on accident lest his friend be expelled. Atom Heart Mother is some paranormal mystery thriller during the recession I didn't have subtitles for it. Ballad of Tara is about a women giving away her grandfather's possessions to her village as she can't keep them but finds no one who will accept his shamshir. The Night Bus is about an Iranian prisoner convoy of Arab POWs in 1983 during the Iran-Iraq War.

>>2118 Right, I was trying to say that the original story transcends its original setting. It is separate from the material reality because it did not just happen, But it endures on some mythic level since the film finds it within the present.

Globe-trotting treasure-hunting adventure films Anonymous 09/03/2021 (Fri) 10:55:25 No.1918 [Reply]
So I'm a big fan of the genre, trying to gather the best examples. Indiana Jones trilogy as well as Young Indiana Jones chronicles – goes without saying these are the best. The Mummy 1, 2 – probably the next best thing. Just all around well made wholesome entertainment. Armor of God 2 – so Jackie Chan wanted to make his version of Indiana Jones and I have to say he succeeded. It's great both as a Jackie film and a treasure seeking film. The first Armor of God is also alright but it's always been a bit too dry and boring for me, especially in comparison to the sequel. Lara Croft: Tomb Raider – I was actually surprised how decent this was for what it is. Surprisingly well-made. Peak Jolie too. The sequel is kinda crap and what you'd actually expect from something like this, and the NuBoot should be avoided like plague. The Adventures of Tintin – despite being obnoxious in-your-face 3D, it eventually grows on you and definitely scratches that globe-trotting treasure-hunting itch real good. I wish this was made earlier when Spilerberg was still a real director. National treasure – it's kinda silly and derivative, being a Yidsney movie for younger audiences, but the first film just about passes as enjoyable and well enough made which was still a thing in 2004.

>>2138 Naturally. It was made to capitalize on the Indy hype. The original novel is 100% nigger-based.
One of the primary inspirations for Raiders of the Lost Ark was Otto Rahn, a folklorist author turned SS officer who believed he could find the Holy Grail https://web.archive.org/web/20110516164742/http://www.forteantimes.com/features/articles/5407/raiders_of_the_lost_grail.html Richard Stanley made a documentary on Otto Rahn entitled The Secret Glory https://inv.riverside.rocks/watch?v=r0YOeuxMOww https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r0YOeuxMOww

>>1918 >wholesome Agreed, it's very wholesome and soulful, poggers!
>>2278 Literature should be mandatory for film buffs.
