Big ups Dave, Feuillade’s serials would be great material to watch online!
Jake, Criterion/Janus has the majority of the rights to Ozu to my knowledge, and Garrel is a testy issue but we certainly have our eyes on those filmmakers!
Baylor, Hans-Jürgen Syberberg just put out a DVD of Our Hitler. Would you really like to watch a 4-hour movie online? I admire your dedication! I think he used to offer to free to view online on his website (http://www.syberberg.de/) but I don’t know enough Germany to navigate it.
I’d like to see some John Cassavetes up on here.
Minnie and Moskowitz
The Killing of a Chinese Bookie
A Woman Under the Influence
Some more suggestions:
José Luis Guerín (In the City of Sylvia, En construcción , Tren de sombras ) – have not actually seen any of them but I’ve heard that they are very good!
I second Profit Motive and the Whispering Wind, which I have yet to see.
Silent Light, which I also have not seen.
Wen Jiang (In the Heat of the Sun)
Four Nights of a Dreamer
Maybe Weerasethakul shorts (or features for that matter)?
Victor Erice (El Sur, Quince Tree Light)
I second, or third, or whatever… and also vouch for the following — Pedro Costa, Eugene Green, Chantal Akerman, Hour of the Furnaces, Straub/Huillet, That Most Important Thing Love, Hitler A Film from Germany, Eros Plus Massacre, Philippe Garrel, Jose Luis Guerin, Four Nights of a Dreamer, India Song, Roberto Rossellini, Victor Erice. Yay!!!!
P.S. I have not seen Out 1, but would gladly give my unborn child for the opportunity to watch it with English subs. Thanks.
Excellent suggestions, Juan. I’d be a very happy man if I could watch Colossal Youth on here. I’ve had a hard time finding a copy with English subs. Another suggestion I’d make is for the films of Alexander Kluge. I feel like Kluge has been ignored for the likes of Herzog and Wenders and deserves some attention. His strange unique editing style is one of the most bewildering and yet most effective I’ve ever seen. Truly one of cinema’s greatest auteurs.
Guerín, India Song – great calls both. More Duras in general, for that matter.
some directors to add to the list:
Tomás Gutiérrez Alea, Kira Muratova, Ritwik Ghatak, Glauber Rocha?
I saw India Song by Duras in Cannes 2 years ago when there was her retrospective.
She was against all the conventional film rules and styles.
She wanted audience to have their own visual images with her books
(why did she make films then?).
Her films are consisted of repetitive scenes and static shots, or her voice with black screen.
As I had known this, I didn’t get disappointed but otherwise, you may find it quite boring.
I admire Duras as a writer, not as a filmmaker.
I rather would like to see The Long Absence (1961) directed by Henri Colpi, based on Duras’ novel.
It is such a moving story. Highly recommended.
If Criterion delivers on the half-promise Costa gave this month then we’ll get a step closer to Fountainhas TV when Criterion releases the Fountainhas Trilogy, as it is often-dubbed, “in the fall”… SO: if you guys could swing Casa de Lava or Where Does Your Hidden Smile Lie?, then that’d be a pair of dope coups. And, failing that, Dave’s probably right. All it would really take is some clever networking to get some kind of Fountainhas TV thing… he shoots enough footage as it is…
marguerite duras is the cinema. i like to see carlos reygadas. luz silenciosa. tsa ming liang. idont want to sleep alone
Ahh, Marguerite Duras. Personally, I love Hiroshima mon amour and will try really hard to get this film for The Auteurs..
Some of these are mentioned before, but i’d really like to see some Jacques Rivettes:
L’ Amour fou (1969), Out 1, noli me tangere (1971), Out 1: Spectre (1972), Le Pont du Nord(1981), Merry-Go-Round (1981), Haut bas fragile (1995)
I 2nd (or 3rd or 4th) India Song, some others I’d like to see: A City of Sadness, A Time to Live and a Time to Die, Dust in the Wind, My Summer at Grandpa’s, Tokyo.sora, Su-Ki-Da, Zabriskie Point, Lunar Eclipse, The Mother and the Whore, A Brighter Summer Day, Une chambre en ville
bela tarr, lisandro alonso
Head – The Monkees movie! It’s the ultimate trip! Magical Mystery Tour too, The Beatles movie…There is a fabulous period piece!!
Y Tu Mama Tambien
Solo Con Tu Pareja
Snow Angels and another recent film called Shelter
how about some bergmans, especially his tv movies like fanny and alexander and saraband
Animal House and Collateral
I just spotted this via a philosophy journal’s article on Duras:
“A dedicated feminist, [Delphine] Seyrig directed militant films, that are currently being restored by the Centre Simone de Beauvoir in Paris: Maso et Miso vont en bateau (1975, Maso and Miso Go Boating), Scum Manifesto (1976) and the documentary Sois belle et tais-toi (1981, Be Seen and Not Heard) in which she interviews actresses.”
Let’s add those to the list.
The River (1951) by Jean Renoir based on British writer Rumer Godden’s book by the same title
Gorgeous film! Criterion has it in the U.S…
Some Bergman and Kirosawa, the Battle of Algiers
How about some Von Sternberg? I think the majority of his films are unavailable and Anatahan is only available in awful prints. I saw it a few days ago at the cinematheque here, and it was awesome.
Did you get to see Dishonored? That’s my favorite of his hard to see ones…
Unfortunately not – I only had the time to attend both Scarlet Empress and Anatahan.
Scarlett Empress is my all time favorite von Sternberg. How about that drill winding its way through the icon’s eye!
simply MORE stuff. This is called The Auteurs—well, where are the auteurs here? Is this supposed to be about auteurship or films by auteurs, or does the name having nothing to do with the meaning? If so, like people have said, let’s get some categorized films by directors up here, who are the Auteurs. I get the Indie approach, but it needs some more better-known Indies & classics. Hollywood Cinema isn’t necessarily bad either. Some Welles would do, Altman, Bergman, Lynch, De Sica, Bunuel, etc. I would love more realist films, especially, but that is just my opinion.
Oh yes, and featured world-renowned festival films!
I take back my first response. I didn’t know they had more titles outside of The Library page. Nonetheless, make those titles available to WATCH!!
