I'm not really a 'film guy' but man I love Scorsese movies.

I only just saw Raging Bull maybe a year ago. Still haven't seen Wolf of Wall St. Might try to pick it up soon.

That use of silence video was enlightening. Thanks!

Here's a point of controversy which may ruffle some feathers. Not even sure if I agree with myself on this one but...

Casino >>>> Goodfellas

Yeah or nah?

Haven't seen a Casino yet. But, I remeber thinking the same thing I did for GoodFellas as I did Wolf, too long. But, Scosese is a master. His movies are incredible. Hugo is lovely. And he is popping out this stuff at such an late age. Gives me hope that I can make effective creative stuff well into my life. I was under the impression this was not the case.

i thought the McConaughey thing was a little weird and unnecessary...
 
"mmmm-mm-hmm-mm-hmmm-mm-hmmmm........"


I thought he was going to have a bigger role. But I thought he was excellent. I think he looked wierd as he had lost a ton of weight for some other role. I was really impressed with Jonah Hil, also Leo. Usually I am not a fan of Leo but he did really well.

Tusk. Wow. Just wow.

 

I have to applaud Kevin Smith for having the balls to put something like that to film.

^ yeah, i agree whole-heartedly.

 

it's certainly not the best thing i've ever seen, but Tusk succeeds in putting America on the right track to tapping into the full potential cinema has to offer...all the most imaginative films come from overseas, our stuff is way more boring by comparison.  but yeah, i sorta wish that Tusk was longer, the pacing was really weird towards the third act.  but i'm excited for Yoga Hosers to come out next year, and Moose Jaws after that.

 

and Mangoes, did you see that other film McConaughey lost all the weight for, the AIDS film?

that shit was amazing...didn't he win best actor for that role last year?  and then Leto won best supporting actor or something?

Yah, I didn't see it, but I believe he beat Leo for the Oscar. 

 

 

While watching Wolf I couldn't believe it didn't win the Oscar, but it went on too long. And Slave was very powerful.

Here is a double whammy, while we are talking about Leo...

 

He is filmed rapping Phife's verse in Scenario. He did this while at an event for Tribe. He is also going to be starring in the Tribe biopic, I'm Still Here.

who's he gonna be playing in the film?  that seems like a really weird casting choice for a hip-hop biopic about three black musicians in NY during the late '80s...

so last night i attended Part 2 of this ongoing series we have running at the CU Film Studies Department, called First Person Cinema.  basically, we pay to have certain interesting experimental/avant-garde filmmakers visit and screen some of their works for us -- and last night's artist was Jodie Mack.

 

you guys probably haven't heard of her,  but she is fucking amazing.  every single one of the five shorts she screened were visually stunning and innovative for the world of cinema in general...she doesn't do narrative, she's considered an abstract, experimental animator -- but her works are just dripping with pure, aesthetic beauty.  she had a film about tie-dye; a film about plaid fabrics; a film about holographic gift bags; a film specifically made to be seen with anaglyph 3D glasses, and her main piece was this 40 minute film about her mom's old poster shop that was being closed down.

 

it was a combination of experimental documentary, 3D animation, rock opera, concert, and performance art and it was fucking dope.  she structured the entire film to coincide perfectly with Dark Side of the Moon, which she re-recorded and re-wrote all the lyrics to...and then performed live in the dark theater alongside the actual film.  it was one of the most personal, creatively inspired pieces i've ever seen -- and the level of meticulousness in her process of animating is staggering.  she makes these like 10-40 minute vids that usually run pretty fast, meaning that on average she's taking like tens of thousands of frames per piece.  the holographic bag one made me literally shed a tear lol -- i felt like a bitch, just trying to keep it together in this theatre of all my peers while this beautiful film was being played...and then i look next to me and some douchy fucking kid is texting on his phone and getting ready to sneak out.  but yeah, she's fucking great.  i'll link some stuff of hers below:

ahh, man...i wish i could find a copy of it to link to on the net, but she just doesn't upload a lot of her works like that.  she seems to have a very anti-corporate, anti-"art for profit" kinda message/attitude in her pieces and they way she chooses to exhibit them -- which is admirable just to see someone stick to their guns like that, but also a little misguided when your livelihood basically depends on the art you choose to not exhibit.

 

:unsure:

 

but whatever, she's great -- instantly in my top five favorite animators.  i got to meet her after the screening, and then she was a special guest for my Animation Production class yesterday morning -- so i definitely feel like i stood out and made an impression on her, we talked quite a bit about this and that.  i might email her and ask her to send me a copy of Glistening Thrills for my private collection or something; but unfortunately, none of that stuff i linked to above ^ or any of the stuff currently uploaded onto her vimeo account was shown Monday night; every single one of the films are on 16mm prints that she stubbornly chooses to not show anywhere else...which is the mindset of most experimental/avant-garde/abstract filmmakers unfortunately.  i mean, i get it -- but it still sucks.

it could work, i'm actually taller than her haha...

 

oh, and in other news, i just watched Frank last night.  i really liked it, it was quirky and had a lot of personality.

Michael Fassbender plays a surprisingly complex role as the titular character; i like how they didn't explicitly tell the audience what mental illness he had, just inferred to it as "mental illness"...from his performance, though, i'm like 110% that this character was meant to be autistic or at the very least someone with Asperger's...but yeah, he was able to get minute shit down like little ticks and hand movements that people on the spectrum tend to have in one way or another, and weirdly enough they actually get you to feel for this guy who wears a large paper mache head for the duration of the film.

 

very unique though, i enjoyed it.

This was one of my favourites from 2013



Crazy deep. But highly relatable to anybody who's a creative type.
