The Guard, Withnail and I, and anything by Kubrik.
Why would I watch the Hollyjew?
wavelength (snow, 1967) is the only literary film
The Wind Rises is basically a novel in movie form.
Tarkovsky, Bergman, Kurisawa, Lynch, Jodorowsky
Lynch is pretentious and has bought into his own hype. Nothing to see there
mfw i see another Criterion fan
Eraserhead will be forever kino
Karakter, Four Murders are Enough Darling, The Adjuster, A Borrowed Life, Qivitoq
No Country for Old Men
The Society of the Spectacle
The Pervert's Guide to Ideology

t. capeshit-eating bugman
or almost anything else by the Cohen brothers really
This guy knows it.
t. patrician as hell student filmmaker
Mulholland Dr. is the single greatest film ever made, Lynch has earned a little pretention.
Calm down; sometimes the emperor is actually clothed.
probably my favorite
also l'avventura and blow up
NO ONE ELSE IN THE WORLD CARES ABOUT THIS MOVIE BUT IT'S STILL GREAT GHDJLGKGJLSX
It really isn't. Nonsensically Contrived--I'm aware this might seem like a contradiction, but it actually isnt because he purposely thought through this story to be unintelligible--self-important trash. So many loose ends that don't get tied up, he tells an intriguing story only to laugh in our faces because it makes no sense. Fuck him to hell. Elephant man was good tho. I haven't seen eraserhead.
Best romance ever shown on screen
tfw you'll never experience anything like this
wasn't that movie supposed to be a show? he had to rewrite the last 30 minutes of the pilot episode in order for it to make even a little sense, basically the part when she wakes up and goes to the party
I actually agree.
Feel free to shit on my recs...

good list imo
if you have Breathless, then include Masculin Feminin, I don't know what's up with that movie but it's so relaxing to watch
I wanted to add Hunger and Shame. Plus Submarine.
Thanks u too
Any yakuza movie by takeshi
Come on, bro. It's not even Lynch's best.
Recently watched these after putting them off for so long. They're honestly incredible.
t. first year film student
Some good picks but I'd choose 8 and a Half, Wild Strawberries, and Fitzcarraldo in place of the ones chosen (for three of the certain directors) perhaps as a mere matter of taste, but I'd argue.
The Lady from Shanghai
Six Degrees of Separation
The Mirror is one of the greatest reflections on memory I've ever seen. Not boring in the least.
We all start somewhere, sweetie
kinography I deeply admire
Orson Welles (the GOAT)
Kubrick (DO NOT REPLY if you are a hater. Kubrick is OBJECTIVELY GREAT. END OF STORY. PERIOD. I SHOULDN"T EVEN HAVE TO SAY THIS YOU FUCKING PSEUD PIECE OF SHIT. HOW CAN YOU WATCH BARRY LYNDON AND NOT CONCLUDE THAT HE IS A MASTER? SHUT THE FUCK UP YOU STUPID LITTLE BITCH)
Mizoguchi, esp. Sansho
From what I've seen.
The very best:
The Godfather Part II
Some other masterpieces:
The Passion Of Joan of Arc
Rocco and His Brothers
La Dolce Vita
Le Mepris (pretty much everything else by Godard is trash though)
Au hasard Balthazar
Come And See
A Brighter Summer Day
No Country for Old Men
I dont like any kind of cinema desu.
t. doesn't understand Tarkovsky uses time itself as pre-narrative density
I'm a huge fan of Eisenstein films and anything from that era as well as Kurosawa, are those Veeky Forums?
This was kino desu I fucking loved the ending
This was unironically my favourite movie when I was a kid. I still think it's pretty great.
I fucking love whiplash
Am I a brainlet
Thanks, I feel better now.
No way. "Whiplash" was great. Most of the time I hear people complaining about it, it's something along the lines of "Ha ha it's such a factually inaccurate portrayal of how music works, I noticed this because I am a big expert in music, did everyone notice how smart and knowledgeable I am?"
fifth shade of grey
heard it was pretty good and book related stuff.
no. if you think it's one of the best of all time then yes. theres nothing wrong with enjoying something, but to call it one of the best means you haven't had enough experience, and need to broaden your cultural awareness
Dardennes, Godard, Cocteau
Pic related for a good laugh
Oh fuck off. It's not that it's "factually inaccurate," it's just that its entire approach towards artistry is fucked, and you don't need to be a musician to recognize that. It's basically a sports movie, and a pretty good sports movie at that, but peddling the idea that musicianship is basically just endurance training is absurd. And no, this is not a pedantic thing to point out considering it's the conceit of the entire fucking movie.
I see that, and raise you

orson welles was very probably the greatest of all directors. there's also jean renoir and john ford.
The Trial (1962)
please skip this one
Best modern Greek movies?
I only know kynodontas.
Magnolia is the “movie most like a book” I’ve ever seen.
Shadow of a Doubt
I thought it was weird as fuck that the detective started hitting on that girl.
What do you think is wrong with it?
A good one. Remains under the radar for whatever reason.
Suntan is also good.
It was a different time, it was a simpler time. Hitchcock was also a very horny and sexually frustrated man who probably wanted to bang Teresa Wright into unconsciousness. He probably would have even fucked her while unconscious. In fact, he might have preferred that.
I honestly hate watching movies, they are all too short and human interaction always looks artificial.
1943 was such a simple time.
shadow of a doubt is hitchcock's best american film but the english ones were better
wanted to bang Teresa Wright
Cant blame him.
I hear people complaining about it, it's something along the lines of "Ha ha it's such a factually inaccurate portrayal of how music works,
At a certain point you realize it takes tremendous skill and intelligence to produce even a "mediocre film". Whiplash is great because it's a work of art, not because of at deep themes or extraneous bullshit. I wish I understood this earlier
Fuck off, Johnny Utah! Actually, although I think your read on the film is misguided, I'm not criticizing you here. I'm talking about people who don't really engage with the film at all, instead using it as a springboard to exhibit their musical expertise. (For instance, a few weeks ago I was speaking to someone who claimed that the main character's sweating while drumming "ruined" the movie for him because skilled drummers don't actually sweat that much while playing.)
well it is artificial, you know. if you want genuine human interaction you can see that everywhere.
The Trial (1962)
I love the book too much. Welles took one of the most iconic endings in literature and turned it into... whatever that was supposed to be.
I don't actually think it was simpler, I was mocking that "the golden age was whenever I was a kid" mentality. The mores were just different. What do you think Hitchcock's absolutely best film is?
Quarry (TV show)
if you want genuine human interaction you can see that everywhere.
Where do you live and how can I move there?
W E S T E R N movies
I even cried with some ones.
The Shooting was an underrated work of kino
Seize the means
t. someone who has never met any first year film students
in the world
i see i see
the 39 steps was a masterpiece don't you think
This is so true to my life, it's beyond ironic. So many people I have met recently act like they are characters out of The Sims, they act like how they think people are meant to act.
There are probably only maybe 6 to 7 people I have met my whole life (31 years old) that I believe are honest people that behave like actual human beings.
I remember going to film school thinking I was going to meet people as autistic as me about cinema but instead all of them loved Nolan, Godard and Donnie Darko. Dreadful people really.
The Western truely was the modern, American epic. It's a shame it doesn't resonate as much as it once did.
Anything French New Wave or Italian Neorealism
masks are proliferating. you have difficulty finding a girl whose face looks as it really is. our age is the triumph of makeup. and not only for faces, but, more important, for the mind as well. everybody wears a mask. even children wear other people's masks until they develop one of their own.
It may surprise you if you haven't already watched it, but the Westworld TV show is pretty great. I know it's not the same, but still it's a fun time.
If you like video games Red Dead Redemption is also great.
Yeah, I know his stance. It makes him look like an even bigger tool than he would have had he just changed it.
stabbing would remind people of the holocaust
I'll kill him using dynamite while hes in a big hole in the ground
Honestly the stupidest fucking change for the stupidest fucking reason. a Jew dying in a ditch is so less Holocaust than a fucking knife to the chest.
That's honestly one of the few I have never seen, but it's going into the hard-drive as I type.
It's got to the point where people say things like "no one is genuine anymore" to indicate that they belong to a certain intellectual milieu, not because they actually believe it and want to change their own behavior. Commodities were a mistake etc.
The first season was fun to watch yeah. The season 2 is still good?
Come And See
Ha! I fucking love that movie. I'm old enough to have seen it in a theater too. Ack. Truth be told, I am a fan of the awful On The Road movie too.
garbage pail kids
you misunderstood his point, and i think you misunderstood the ending. instead of a jew meekly succumbing to his death, he laughs in his executioners faces.
besides, the film, you might have noticed, changes k's character fundamentally. welles wasn't in love with the trial, he thought a good film could be made of it.
I think you misunderstood the Trial
The one and only ascetic
and you misunderstood the trial 1962
Le diable probablement wasnt that good imo.
K didn't meekly submit, he refused to kill himself so they had to stab him instead. He understands what he is supposed to do but he resists, just like every other time he's resisted by actively pursuing his case. He wasn't some belittled man who gives himself to the system; he desperately bucks against the bureaucracy. That's literally the whole book, K refusing to shut up and do what he's supposed to. Welles is a great filmmaker, don't get me wrong. But the film was a hatchet job on one of the most important novels of our time.
nobody has posted this masterpiece yet
The absolute state of this shithole
If he wanted to make a commentary on the holocaust he should have unironically ended it with K being throw into a concentration camp.
is it really Veeky Forums if they're book adaptations?
a woman is a woman is pretty comfy as well.
Oh, man. I do like "The Ninth Gate." Polanski has the special ability to make dumb stuff like Satanist illuminati cults seem genuinely spooky.
drumming is literally about endurance training, plus andrew is not a composer, he just plays songs by the book.
Depends on the adaptation. Stuff like Naked Lunch, Solaris do it best. Take what you will from the original and make your own work from it. Don't try and tell the story again, or tell it in your own way. Ruthlessly appropriate and make your own work. Stuff like No Country for Old Men works too, in the sense that it is literally the book in movie format. But either you stay 100% faithful or total departure; anything in the middle is going to be awful.
alright actually YOU misunderstood the trial. if i may rebut point by point:
he's passive in the book
he is part of the system, in the end he's guilty. he's a little bureaucrat.
the trial isn't one of the most important novels of our time, it's not even one of the really good ones
I'm only listing movies with an original screenplay because choosing book adaptations is cheating.
Y Tu Mamá También
it's not a commentary on the holocaust
I think you need to read it again. They even tell K to stop trying so hard. I don't know how you decided that he was guilty considering we never learn what the charges actually were. I can't comment on it it's worth, because obviously that's subjective. But from a more objective view, it was highly influential, and important enough that the most famous film auteur of his time decided to try and tackle it. Honestly I'm starting to doubt you even read it.
I don't get it so it's trash
This is the kind of person who keeps pretending they're smarter than you on Veeky Forums
