Haven't seen this, but how is it flawed?
In the 90s Tarantino was accused of making films that were superficial, indulgent, racist, gratuitously violent exercises in cinematic plagiarism. After proving the critics wrong with "Jackie Brown" did he suddenly decide, "Now I want to prove them all right!"
I don't demand that a movie be plausible. I demand that a movie be interesting. By that standard Tom Tykwer's "Perfume" is very interesting indeed.
Violates the first law of ideologically driven essay film-making: Make sure that the premiss of your film is not fundamentally flawed.
Interesting concept, probably would have been better as a short film.
Has anybody actually watched this from beginning to end?
I have reason to believe that Stan on South Park was named as a tribute to Brakhage.
A remake that adds nothing and removes subtly and imagination.
The film presents some valid criticisms against the MPAA, such as they are essentially a front organization for a handful of studios and venues to maintain a monopoly over domestic film distribution. But the film also lingers on a few extremely lame criticisms, centering on some idea of maintaining control of the culture. It just seems to ignore the fact that not everyone WANTS to see movies 'Boys Don't Cry'.
Capitalism: Insisting that people pay actual money to view something (as opposed to paying in shiny sticks and pebbles) you could not pay them to watch!
A fun film that you can tell Welles made when he was young. The soundtrack made for the Kino Avant-Garde Volume 1 DVD release is especially great.
What a wonderful thumbnail for this film. (sarcasm)
The HERO of this movie is a tobacco lobbyist! Just say that to yourself for a second. When you realize that you will realize how good this movie is.
Is '66 Scenes from America' available to watch anywhere?
Very "student film".
A nice little movie.
If given the choice to watch a brand new print of Citizen Kane or a brand new print of The Trial, I'd watch The Trial.
Dario Argento is cinema what Motorhead is to music. And Suspiria is his "Ace of Spades". Everything that makes Argento unique is featured in this film. There is not a frame that looks as if it could have come from another movie. The lighting is large splashes of primary colors. Every set looks so expansive that you expect it to swallow the characters whole.
