I think a similar thread like this was already created at some point, but I figured I’d start this one regardless.In the same spirit as the Post a Song You’re Currently Listening To thread or the Notebook’s Video of the Day, I thought it would be interesting and fun for anyone who would like to, to embed various ‘cinema capsules’, for lack of a better term, that we come across. Maybe it’s from a favorite film or one you haven’t seen, the way someone says a phrase, a camera or body movement, maybe it’s ten minutes long or less than ten seconds. Something that feels like a synthesis of composition, light, action and, in most cases, sound.
The Living Dead?
Old-Man Straub At It Again . . . .

The WHY poem clip from the film SICK: The Life and Death of Bob Flanagan, Supermasochist
Documentary about writer and performance artist Bob Flanagan who died at 43 of cystic fibrosis. His life was indicated by pain from the beginning and he started to develop sadomasochistic practices, which he developed finally into performances.
S: That clip from Visage (and I didn’t know what it was while I was watching it—that it’s Tsai is excellent and I should have guessed it!) has me moving it up to the top of the Q. Good idea for a thread, too.
Great idea Josh!
As a pretentious Michael Mann nerd, the fourth clip is always what plays in my mind as I come home to an empty apartment during the week. It’s not on the ocean, I’m not a professional armed robber, but somehow it’s just perfect.
Some Cinema to Lunch By . . . . .
Hou: Can’t wait to see it myself, though I’ll have to see all his previous films first. Oh, the ‘agony’. ;)
Jack: Love the BT clip, another one I have to see soon.
This contains what I would consider a SPOILER so be warned. Here is an absolutely beautiful trailer for The Bird People in China.
I hope everyone watches this as it is the first time I have cut something out of a movie and uploaded something to youtube and it took me three hours to work it out!
How do you get it embbeded?
@Lachim was that the intro to Sans Soleil? Just click on the embed code under the clip and cut and paste it into your post – should work
@Megg: tried that, didn’t work…
@Megg: I got it. :)
I can’t believe I am making my own little videos… a new monster is unleashed.
All these clips are fantastic esp if one has not seen a lot of cinema, just to get a taste. Thanks Jack for reminding me how wonderful that scene is in Night of the Hunter.
This is my second effort and it took waaaay less time :) :) I had no clue what I was doing to start.
