Watch This Fucking Movie Already

Postby Fixed Cross » Wed Dec 16, 2020 7:12 pm



Come on it is so so great. I just heard from my woman that it is a great film and proves my ability to make great films.
I showed it to my old buddy from the filmacademy who "made it" (in Dutch film, so thats basically the same as failing unfortunately, its the one thing the Dutch are not good at, theatrics) and he wondered why I was holed up in such "Seven-like" neighbourhoods. I thought he loved those as I so for their cinematic quality but then again, he has spent 20 years getting ruined by being successful in Dutch film.


I had a conversation with a fellow orgonite maker, I asked him if he could name some good Dutch film and he could name precisely 1.

I'll watch it if, in 25 words or less, someone can explain to me why they watched it.

And I'll watch it twice if, in 10 words or less, someone can explain to me why "all rational men and women are obligated to watch it".

And, as always, no Kids please.

Well, unless you count Pedro in yak yak yak mode.

The two of them can work that out.

Ok, let me introduce the film to you ya drooling bastid. Its about two guys who are beyond pshychiatric help (they believe in Gods and such crazyness) and who, in a world of unendurable weakness, have decided to meet in order to attempt something other than whatever the world suggests (weakness).

Of course, the project was bound to tragically come apart. But thats not the story. The story is, there is no story actually but the plot, the thing, its... well watch the thing. If I could explain in words Id not have made it.
Its about happiness too, you know. And snow and hot coffee that doesnt help against cold feet.

Its about everything and nothing. No, not everything. And not entirely nothing either though thats part of it.

Also there's gossip about and mockery of promethean, early on. Its one of several pretty funny parts. You can take that personal if you wish.



Ill be curious to read your review, Urwrong. Im not expecting any awards, mind you.

So what's the point or plot of the movie? You said everything and nothing, that's about it. I saw mostly a couple of dudes hanging-out. There are some good shots in it, like when you guys run to the van in rain and drive over the camera. The post-production is missing, like sound and picture editing. The conversation is often drowned-out or quiet, if you intend to emphasize the dialogue. The background noise often canceled out conversation entirely.

R - I can see that.
Im "therapy resistant" in another way, though maybe essentially the same - Ive been through too much weird shit for them to even begin to know what theyre dealing with, and I understand them in their attempts too easily and play with it to drive away the boredom.

U --- I guess I can put back the vase I had removed to make place for my Oscar for sound engineering.
The plot... is pretty dark. And you kind of need to want to catch it. Thanks for watching it though, maybe it will affect a dream.
Obviously that one in the rain with the van was a nice shot, though I always wish Id just steered right into the camera as I hit the gas, rather than make that preparatory swerve, which suggests that I have a purpose of going into a target like a camera rather than just happening to drive over where the viewer just happens to be sitting. I used to be an editor, small things like that make up the making of a film, the pacing, what happens to support whatever is explicit.

I know that sounds like pretentious bullshit.

But of all the thousands and thousands of videos that have gone through my hands, this is one of the most satisfying for me to look at.
Its a portrait of North America from Dutch eyes as well.

Anyone else? :wink:

As per usual his "explanation" above is as muddied and as muddled as most of what he posts here.

Or, rather, most of what I have read/viewed coming from him.

Anyway, as almost everyone knows, my own interest in philosophy revolves around "I" at the existential intersection of identity, value judgments and political economy. Attached to a point of view regarding conflicting goods and death... and what is anticipated to be beyond it. And what, in attaining what one does believe is beyond it, motivates one to choose one set of behaviors rather than another.

So, if those things are also of interest to you, watch the film and let me know if it might be worth my time to watch it in turn.

You know, because the film actually does deal with all those things in ways that are more or less straight-forward. And not couched in the usual ineffable, esoteric mumbo-jumbo that he often resorts to here.

In my own opinion of course.

Laughing is spazzing.

I already know what shit went which way and what I am going to do about it.

I don't even laugh once it's all over. I'm like Clint Eastwood I just walk away.

See! He's done it again!!

Posted a completely esoteric -- some would say completely unintelligible -- bit of gibberish that I'm sure the chosen few can decode and grasp as really, really...deep. Or, certainly, really, really...clever.

And, come on, when push comes to shove won't the film be much the same?

Even the parts that aren't "in the stars".
