I’ve been meaning to get to those Naruse films. I don’t have Hulu right now, kind of taking a break since I wasn’t watching too much of it. I have seen Repast, Flowing and Mother. Mother played on TCM a while back. They’re all excellent.
Bathory is now streaming.
I consider this to be the 5th best film I have ever seen.
I am glad it got some kind of US distribution finally
One of my favorite films of last year is now streaming on netflix instant.
Miranda July’s The Future
another new release is one that I’ve been wanting to see for a while, Daniel Nettheilm’s The Hunter
Bela Tarr’s Turin Horse is now available on streaming. The video quality was pretty good, except at the beginning hiccups in the streaming at the beginning. I really liked the film, fwiw.
Sam Shepard directed two films: Far North and Silent Tongue
both are on netflix and expiring Sept 1st
North is a very good film. Silent is a horrible film
both are worth watching tho because they are odd works of a great artist
Expiring 9/1 are two films I really want to see…
Greg Aaraki’s The Living End
John Maybury’s Love is the Devil
a couple of new ones that I’ve been wanting to see…
Jiro Dreams of Sushi
Agnès Varda’s Cinévardaphoto expires on the 31st:
“How potent is the power of a picture? Filmmaker Agnès Varda asks this question and attempts to answer it in three separate vignettes. In the first, a female artist, Ydessa, collects photographs of teddy bears. But why? Next, the director examines her snapshots from the 1950s, taking a step back in time. The final short captures Cuba after the revolution, full of possibilities and on the brink of otherness.”
expiring on 9/1: the shape of things neil labute, show me love lukas moodysson, the wayward cloud tsai ming-liang, and on 8/31, unknown pleasures jia zhangke :( dammit i can’t watch all of these!! i could try…
Show Me Love is very much worth the time to watch it
k it’s been in my queue forever so i may just do it this afternoon
Show Me Love is good stuff. I always enjoy Moodyssons films. Unknown Pleasures and Wayard Cloud are really good too. You’re in a bad spot Ruby.
I just watched Jiro Dreams of Sushi. Delightful film.
I don’t know how long it has been there, but I just found out that Nuri Bilge Ceylan’s Once Upon a Time in Antolia is available.
Oh awesome. I didn’t see it up there. I’ve been wanting to see it again.
Will have to see I Was a Male War Bride before it expires in a couple days.
If you’re in the UK then Curzon on Demand is really good.
I must say though MUBI still has the best range of interesting titles, although I look forward to the time when ALL films are available in one handy place online. Netflix and LoveFilm don’t have many films that I haven’t seen or many arthouse titles on their streaming collections I find….it’s usually cheaper to buy DVDs too!
I’m glad someone outside the US has contributed. I’d Like for everyone to get something out of posting here.
@ Ruby: Oh, have you not seen The Shape of Things yet? That is one of those films that I feel very conflicted about, and simultaneously would recommend, and never recommend. At any rate, I’m very curious what you think if you decide to watch it.
fucking åmål is really good. but i guess everyone knew that but me :P
Glad you liked it
Ruby- please make sure you see Unknown Pleasures too.
ok jerry i definitely will. i’m sure i added it cuz i saw it in your favorites :)
There are some great new titles available through Netflix streaming.
Now I’ve actually seen this one. It’s rather good, although many may not think so. It picked up a lot of negativity against it because of the amount of sex in it, but of course people seem to dislike movies that have bad sex or sex that makes you feel pretty terrible. As always, Binoche gives a great performance.
I’ve seen this one as well and any of those detractors of this film solely because of their lack of appreciation for a film like Dogtooth can get over themselves. It’s a completely different film. The way language is used in the film is truly great.
Haven’t seen this yet, but may do so here in a few minutes after I post this. I’ve been wanting to for a while.
I watched Klown tonight after I read your post. Did not like. You gave it four stars. What did you enjoy?
I saw Elles. It was very been there, done that for me. Then again Belle du jour was one of the first Bunuel films I saw when I was sixteen, so…
I liked because it’s essentially a road movie where really awkward things happen. The main character of Hvam is trying so hard to prove that he’d be a good father, but he just can’t do anything right. This is something I’m interested in. I like to see how people are essentially forced to prove their worth to be at all taken seriously. And the film is damn hilarious. I watched it by myself and just could not stop laughing.
I like Belle du Jour and I like Elles as well. While the Bunuel follows the plight of her choices of becoming a prostitute, we follow a journalist exploring the world and how in that world she becomes more aware of her problems at home. A lot is revealed to her that she may have been blind to prior to meeting these young girls that seem to know so much more about relationships than a grown woman. Plus, it’s a female director. We need more of them.
Twilight of the Ice Nymphs is gone effective 10/15.
Watched the Maddin some time ago when I was on a bit of Maddin kick. I didn’t like this one as much as most of the others I’d seen, but maybe it’s time to revisit.
A whole ton of Mario Bava films will be made available coming the 15th of October. This will include: Kill Baby…Kill, Lisa and the Devil, Bay of Blood, Black Sunday, Knives of the Avenger, and The Girl Who Knew Too Much.
I’m very excited for this.
^Tomas…how do you know what’s coming soon?
I cannot wait for the Bava either
