Mod Fuck Explosion was exactly what it sounds like, gritty and entertaining.

I loved and connected with The Sacrifice more than any other Tarkovsky I've seen. It's much more grounded and tangible than The Mirror, but still maintains the ethereal qualities. My thoughts are better articulated in my review.

I'm moderately confused on The Devil, Probably. I can't understand whether the film wants you to comdemn, empathize, sympathize, criticize, identify with or simply analyze the main character. Whichever is the case, the main character is still an insufferable piece of shit. He's like every nihilist you met in high school that would argue that politics, religion, relationships, etc are all pointless, and act as if they're intelligent for figuring that out. Disappointed in Bresson.
>>
>>81884236
>Offret more grounded than Mirror
did we watch the same films
>>
>>81884824
I mean in the fact that it has more of a cohesive, linear narrative. Not in the aspect of realism or having a straightforward message.
>>
>>81884939
oh dear lord what is that compression yuck

You're right, I don't have a lot of patience for those kind of characters. If they movie isn't nihilistic, what is it? What is it saying about the guys nihilism? What is the purpose of the film?

sounds like you got BRESSONED my man
>>
>>81886774
I really liked Pickpocket and A Man Escaped though, and I love the acting style. There is just nothing interesting being explored in The Devil, Probably.
>>
>>81886718
To me, Bresson forces you to project emotions onto the characters because of his use of minimal performances. It's been years since I saw that one though so I can't say anything specific.

Maybe it says something about you that you were so annoyed by this guy?
>>
>>81886549
>>81886718
>>81886920

I haven't seen the film but from what you have talked about it sounds a bit like L'√Čtranger. Where it takes nihilism to it's logical conclusion.
>>
>>81886920
I like that aspect of the film at least. You're probably right, and that's why I don't know if it's the fault of the film or of me. With impressionistic acting, does my judgement derive from my personal impression or the intent of the director?

>>81886975
I believe that is the central theme of the film. My problem is that sometimes it seems to glorify or romanticize the main character and other times condemn him or sometimes it takes a minimal observational approach. I don't know if these are the intentions of Bresson, or just my impressions.
>>
Is it truly possible to fully appreciate and understand Bresson's cinema and Diary of a Country Priest especially, without being a Christian?

>>
when was the last time you turned off a film more than halfway in /lbg/?
>>
>>81887911
I watched 37 minutes of 52-Pickup, which is about a third.
>>
>>81887936
52-Pickup is a fucking masterpiece you faggot.
>>
>>81887962
I'd already read the novel so I knew what was going to happen on a plot level and the filmmaking and acting, etc weren't keeping me interested. It's not a masterpiece for its first 37 minutes and I imagine that holds true throughout the entire running time.
>>
>>81887911
Mr. Nobody
>>
>>81888251
I believe this is the worst film ever made
>>
>>81888282
Pretty reasonable assessment. I will never understandwhy it has a 3.7 on Letterboxd.
>>
>>81887167
>With impressionistic acting, does my judgement derive from my personal impression or the intent of the director?
i'm not sure what you mean. wouldn't it depend on the person watching? interesting thought though
>>
>>81887911
circus savage, turned it off about 4 hours in
>>
>>81888406
I just don't know how to parse my own view of the character and the intended view of the character. Partially because I don't even know what the intended view of the character is supposed to be, if there's even supposed to be an intended view.
>>
>>81887911
Stopped watching Chimes At Midnight about an hour in, left the theatre about 30 minutes in for Guardians of the Galaxy
>>
>>81888697
I don't think there is an intended view of the character. Some people will be annoyed by him, like you, some sympathetic and maybe some apathetic and that's totally fine. Does pretentious edgelords like him not deserve to have a movie made about them?

sorry if i'm not much help.
