I watched Kaili Blues, and it was wonderful. Could’ve been twice as long though.

Simone Barbès ou la Vertu

wow, the last scene of this is one of the most beautiful and heartbreaking things i've seen in a long time
this was made in 1980 by marie-claude treilhou, who was a young woman who loved movies but didn't know much about making them yet. she wrote the script and got it produced by Diagonale, which was this group led by Paul Vecchiali that made movies in a very DIY way. she worked as an usherette at a porn theater with the girl who ended up being the protagonist in this movie and plays just that role. the movie's very modern in its portrayal of outcasts with a very loving and non-sensationalistic gaze, and it's perfect both as a depiction of french society at that point in time and as a very subdued and emotional evocation of loneliness. it's beautifully shot by jean-yves escoffier who ended up working with carax and korine
i really recommend it to the more curious cinephiles here, it's on kg and it's crazy that it's relatively unknown


thanks so much for this, I absolutely loved it. especially recommend to anyone into rivette

breakdown (1997) - jonathan mostow

this whips ass. a late 90s reimagination of deliverance set in new mexico. kurt russell as a middle-class shlub in a purple polo and khakis driven to violent ends. at a brisk 90 min runtime + made with a craftsmanship lacking from basically all hollywood action nowadays

All That Heaven Allows (Sirk, 1955)

This was great. The story continues to get more interesting as the movie progresses, and it really brings to life the stifling pressure to conform of 1950s upper-class suburbia. It's odd, but in a good way: it's a big-budget Technicolor melodrama that criticizes conformity and the mainstream and champions the outsider.

Won't You Be My Neighbor

I'm sure it's the sort of saccarine shit this board hates, but I really liked it. Started off a little clumsy but the material was good enough that it's hard to screw up. Much better than 30 feet from startdom which was a complete structural mess.

Time for a rewatch.

I loved this. sakamoto is such an inspirational man. he's been doing it for so long, and he's so prolific, but he still has this huge curiosity and approaches sound like it's the first time, every time. walking thru the woods and banging stuff with a stick. tinkering with the "tsunami piano". face lighting up like a child when he tinkles a bell in the north pole. standing in his back yard, in the rain, with a bucket on his head...

this documentary is really moving and quite sad as it covers his throat cancer diagnosis. there's a slight fatalism to it. but it also makes Async all the more remarkable when you see the processes that went into making it and the thinking behind it. I love that album and love it so much more now. and the performance of the Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence theme in the Fukushima Gymnasium is just so beautiful. me and my sakamoto crew were fighting back the tears. definitely catch this if yr a fellow sakhead.

this documentary about sakamoto from the mid 80s is also really cool, the stuff he says about technology and pop culture really blew my mind when I saw it
