How about top 10 actresses from films before 1980? I got a thing for Swede blondes but I did include a few black haired beauties. It all started when I was talking with a friend about how much more brautiful women were casted to bring works to life and capture our hearts and really make them classics. But after googling some women I remember fondly I found them to be pretty rat faced and disgusting. Also bonus points are seeing them at 80-90 years old and how sometimes beauty never fades or how plastic surgery and drugs really affects the elite. Anyways heres mine in order.

The career of an actrice is always precarious. Early success is no indicator for the future. A star is one or two failures away from being a bad bet and unemployable.

Tippy Walker for example


>Both women are now in their sixties, and it turns out that they’ve had lives eerily like those that that could have been extrapolated from the characters they play in “Henry Orient.” Spaeth (levelheaded, studious Gil) left acting, graduated from Columbia University with an M.B.A., and went into Republican politics. She worked for the F.B.I. as assistant to the director, created and ran Ronald Reagan’s communications office when he was President, worked on George W. Bush’s campaigns, including being the P.R. point woman on the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth effort (which she says is her “biggest regret”), and now has her own successful communications firm in Dallas—she posts promotional videos on YouTube about being an effective corporate communicator.

>It was harder to find out what happened to Tippy Walker, the radiant actress who played Val. The brilliance of her performance seemed to have surprised even the moviemakers (they ended up reshaping the movie around Val’s character in the editing room, including a day of shooting, months after the production wrapped, of the iconic scene of her walk through a snowy Central Park, beloved of all fans of the film). I searched the IMDb message boards for news of her, and found hundreds of queries from fans, but few answers. She was brieflPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Linda Kerridge to me is one of the most beautiful women of her time. She only had a brief career and then disappeared from the scene, not for any lack of looks or talent. I strongly recommend Paul Moressey's Mixed Blood where she plays a very rich bored NY socialite.

David shot Inland Empire with an old Sony PD-150, modified to take different lenses.

Twin Peaks Season 3 was shot on an Arri Amiras.


Orders are now being taken and prices for the camera start at $39,999 US. For this, you get the entry level version of the camera complete with electronic viewfinder (EVF), capable of shooting ProRes 422 in the Rec709 colour at up to 100 frames a second (fps)

I've only recently gotten into the silent era. Over time I found myself watching older and older films. Now I'm close to the beginning. Is anyone else interested in silents?

Of all the silent films I find Buster Keaton's The General to be the most watchable. It uses a finer film stock, to a degree that the cinematography almost gives a modern quality. As a young man, Keaton was quite brilliant.



I'd love to see Cabiria.

I saw Abel Ganz's Napoleon when it was reconstructed from fragments and frankly it was terrible.

I am absolutely floored not one of you has mentioned Georges Méliès in this thread yet. If you know anything about the art of film, his groundbreaking contributions to cinema as we know it need no introduction.

Yeah it's weird Melies never came up before. And how about the lesser-known Spaniard Segundo de Chomón who had a very similar style to Melies. He went so far as to copy A Trip to the Moon nearly shot for shot.


Segundo de Chomón made almost 230 short films between 1901 and 1913

I'm really interested in learning about it but don't know where to start. Are there any good resources for understanding film workflow? All the aesthetic related things like negative stocks, film stocks, color grading, lookup tables, and how they all fit together. How "warm"/"cool"/"washed out" palettes are made and all that.

Pic related, some red that I like.

For everything always go with your gut or what you feel and cement experiments before learning conventionally or the rules. I recommend drawing or photography for angle perspective and ideas before film, every scene/frame is it's own work of art.


This is good advice, looking at what's mediocre will tell you what not to do.

I love films set in those forgotten places of the United States, wacky towns with wacky people in the middle of the country, stillness, comfyness. It just seems like a parallel dimension where nothing happens and at the same time everything can happen. I've never been in the US but my mind often gets lost in those landscapes from film, remembering memorable fictional people. I love westerns too but let's keep them out the discussion and discuss contemporary (post WW2 till now) settings. What are your favorite films with a distinct American setting? what are your favorite stills, places, characters from those works? Do you have real-life anecdotes of those places? if you live in metropolitan areas, how do you feel about rural America?

Yeah it's a nice one for this thread. I was thinking of LPS lately for some reason. Larry McMurtry is a very good writer of stories about small western towns. Hud is another noteworthy film based on one of his novels. I think it's supposed to take place in the present (or when it was written). However it's more in the vein of a traditional western since it involves cattle ranching.

Last Picture Show, Hud and Lovin' Molly are "Larry McMurtry's first three novels, all set in the north Texas town of Thalia after World War II". I'd never heard of Lovin' Molly before, but it was also adapted into a film directed by Sidney Lumet. It looks like that film is not nearly as good as the other two.


True Stories, directed by and starring David Byrne from Talking Heads.

This is my main issue with it too, but I suspect it means the obvious, ie no modern (50s+) American blockbusters and no American classics (with the exception of perhaps Griffith)

If anything, IMO, Unforgiven or The Wild Bunch or half of the John Ford movies deserve to be there more than half of what's there, but who cares anyways



I think, in context, it means hard to penetrate films and today lesser known, overlooked or lesser known outside of country of origin. There are already many lists with quality but somewhat popular films, so these lists try to create something of value. But of course when there's 250 limit there will be a lot of known films and we didn't even hit 250.



Unforgiven was really plain and did nothing new, and it is since the script was floating around in Hollywood for 20 years. I don't know why it's praised as one of the best movies made.

>This film is bad. Adding it to the list just because it's from Turkey is not a good enough reason

I haven't seen Masumiyet but it has good reviews. Of course that may be illusory; Yol (1982) is another Turkish film with good reviews -- it's probably even more acclaimed than Masumiyet -- but I found it to be mediocre.

How do you feel about Dry Summer? That one I enjoyed very much. I think it's a world cinema essential.

The story builds upon the universal topic of a water dispute. During a summer drought, a boorish tobacco farmer dams the irrigation canal because the spring originates on his property. As the heat intensifies, so does the conflict between the farmer, his neighbors and eventually his own family.

Demirkubuz produces same kitsch flicks all the time. I've seen all his early works and they're all arabesque craps. I don't even bother watching his new films.

If you want to want to add a Turkish film to Top 250, it must be a Ceylan or Güney film. Susuz Yaz (Dry Summer) by Erksan is a solid choice too. Other directors worth mentioning are Reha Erdem, Emin Alper, Semih Kaplanoğlu and Derviş Zaim.

My nominations for the list are Umut (Güney, 1970) and Bir Zamanlar Anadolu'da (Ceylan, 2011)

I'm looking for movies with a certain aesthetic, see pics related. Basically an 80s photography feel with vibrant and sharp colors, lots of lights, neons, night-time, a certain dream-like quality. Wish I could express myself better but I'm bad at English, hopefully you understand what I'm looking for by looking at the images. Doesn't have to be necessarily an 80s movie (as you can see, I included some Eyes Wide Shut screencaps), just this type of aesthetic. I already seen most of Wong Kar Wai films which would be an easy suggestion. Throw at me everything that comes to your mind. Also discuss any aesthetics in film that you like/reminds you of the 80s (not only the type I requested), just for the sake of discussion

Cyberpunk is dazzling future neon and technology fighting big bad corporations as we pretend to still live in the 2000s and early 2010s, nothing more.



Ok, but whats your point?


Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas



>OP wanted Nocturnal, colorful, 80s aesthetic

>Give him a movie thats not 80s and mostly set in daytime

The Fabulous Baker Boys (1989)

Set in Seattle, it's a movie that challenges the suburban daytime married with kids lifestyle with a nocturnal urban arts lifestyle of single adults. Ultimately it's a life of loneliness and frustration but it still has its charms. It's my favorite Michelle Peiffer movie

Hey, /film/, thought I would start a thread on independent film makers that browse here. Just finished my fantasy film two years in the making, working on some final music selections (very minimalist).

We wanted to make a basic fantasy film that is more like Conan The Barbarian and Dark Souls, with some cinematography similar to what you would see in Samurai Jack at times. 13th Warrior was also a big inspiration. The plot isn't complicated, but it is more about the shots and the atmosphere of the film. We shot this over the course of two years for about 5000.

The film is called Spriggan. Looking to release it in about a week or so to Amazon, etc. Take it to some festivals as well.

What are some projects you are working on, or roadblocks that you are running into making your film?

Here are a few stills.

Wow thank you so much. We did film it chronologically, as I took advice from Refn and a few others that advised doing so. Better to have a strong finish than a beginning is what they said. Valhalla Rising was big inspiration for me doing that.

The only exception to this actually is the Spriggan scene itself; that was shot in the middle but otherwise everything else was done in order. Thanks for the love, we are going to try and make more for sure <3

Short film version we are using for short film festivals.

Added a flare to the blood moon.

Been busy with filming Watchmen so haven't been able to keep up on here as much. Hope everyone is having a good Spring.

Made a generic trailer for the Amazon/streaming services. We got lucky and the Frazetta family (Frank Frazetta if for some reason you are not familiar) watched the film and liked it. I saw another indie fantasy film doing well, called The Headhunter, but it is shot in a much more standard way (colors are that Nolan Blue that is ever so popular). We may end up getting some non-pozzed fantasy films out of this generation after all.

doomer is the worst meme i've seen in years



Thanks for saying it, no clue why anyone would willingly wallow in despair instead of trying to improve themselves. Even if the rest of the world is pure trash never compromise and join them.




No, that's the worst meme. Reddit memes seem based compared to that. There's literally nothing screaming more "I'm retard born slave, without any talents, chinese tryhard". Woke bullshit. Fuck off back to factory.



yeah it is quite trash and lazy but same goes for any wojak/pepe version 5000


OK, fuckers. tbh some brainlet takes were over here, but whatever. Doomer and bloomer are pure memes and just stand for positive and negative outlooks for life. Most of world religions and philosophies rather focus on the nature of overcoming and understanding the negative aspects of our world and being able to have happiness in this dark place. I think portrayals of both approaches in the media are fine, and to be honest if something gets people to watch more good movies/read more then whatever I don't give a shit if they are total dumb-asses about it. They at least got something.


Of positive and negative apporaches as he understood the falsity of the dichotomy (I am the dude who made the list).



>quite trash and lazy but same goes for any wojak/pepe version 5000

Goes for pretty much all memes I guess.

>dark place

World is unironically paradise.

>second paragraph

Why did you state the obvious? Nobody even asked.


I don't know anon, I find all emotions and impressions life-affirming, given they are not conveyed prosaicly. The only films that kill life in me are those that I'm indifferent to or mediocre, boring, vulgar, ugly and so on.

-Terrence Malick is the best filmmaker so far IMO. His recent work is really in it's own territory. Knight of Cups is something special.

-David Fincher is just the best example of a technically air tight film constructor. Never seen something from him that wasn't extremely well constructed. Very clinical.

Sometimes the scripts he chooses seem beneath him though.

-George Lucas appeals to me personally, as I identify with him and the themes of his six films (Growing up and letting go vs. failure to do so. His first three films deal with characters being able to move on, and his last three deal with someone who can't, and who is consumed by his fear instead of overcoming it.)

He is a technically poor/uneven filmmaker, but he is like Grant Morrison for me, where his concepts excite me so much that the execution is of secondary concern. If that makes any sense.

And yes, I am aware that these men are "entry level", not euro, etc.

But unlike other boards, I would expect this place to nonetheless respect that the people i've listed have made great films (before you shout about Lucas, watch THX 1138), no matter how popular they are.

Baby Buñuel, Baby Bergman, Baby Ozu

Baby Ray, Baby Kurosawa, Baby Fassbinder

Baby Tati, Baby Tarkovsky, Baby Kubrick



Are you sure baby Tati and baby Kubrick shouldn't be swapped?



Both are in the correct place


Rohmer, Rivette, Pasolini, Němec.



Oh, and Antonioni, Buñuel and maybe Fassbinder; haven't watched much of him yet, but Petra von Kant is among my favourites.
