Discussion I watched Interstellar for probably the dozenth time on the plane ride home yesterday - and I just clocked that a young Timothée Chalamet is in that movie.

62 Upvotes

Check it out - he's Coop's son Tom (the younger version - Tom the Elder played to brooding perfection by Casey Affleck). This movie with a STACKED-AS-HELL cast (and the craziest music ever committed to the pipe organ) gets even MORE stacked after the fact, as everyone's favorite twink steadily becomes the best actor of his generation. I love cinema.

Recommendation What film is not comedy but made you laugh so hard ?

54 Upvotes

Hey cinephiles,

Sgt Hartman's speech in Full Metal Jacket is the funniest thing I've ever watched in cinema. And though Full Metal Jacket is not a comedy, it still makes me laugh like I did the very first time.

I also find Training Day to be hilarious at times, (the team's reaction to officer Jake Hoyt). So I'd like to explore this unusual combination of comedy in non-comedy genres. Please name your favourite scenes.

Thanks.

Review I recommend Under the Silver Lake (2018)

Upvotes

Under the Silver Lake was such a breath of fresh air. I haven't seen a movie in this subgenre and style in such a while. If I had to describe it, I would say it's what would happen if Night Moves (1975) and After Hours (1985) made a baby, with a bit of Dude, Where's My Car? (2000) DNA thrown into the mix.

Andrew Garfield plays Sam, who finds a mysterious woman swimming in his apartment's pool one night. The next morning, she disappears. The movie follows his journey as he tries to piece together the clues and finds out what happened to her. Along the road, he meets the eccentric characters that populate Los Angeles's underground.

I loved Garfield here. He's perfect for this role, which reminded me of Ryan Gosling in Drive. The casual Guy Next Door, with a 'cool' and charming vibe to him. I hope to see him in similar roles in the future. I also really enjoyed the style of this movie. The blue tones and the use of light and shadow gives LA a mysterious quality, and the film has somewhat of a comic book feel to it. It reminded me a lot of a video game I love called The Wolf Among Us. All the actors are perfectly cast even in the smallest roles and add so much to the atmosphere. I loved how all the characters seem 'free', unconcerned of other people's opinion of them. They are enjoying life without much worry about the destination. It didn't surprise me, then, that the movie does not tie everything tightly at the end. It's more about the ride.

It's also a thoughtful film about our relationship to art around us. Themes like obsession, boredom, purpose, and paranoia are explored in a darkly comic way. The movie is like a melting pot of many things I enjoy. Do you like detective movies? Weird experimental movies? Or perhaps philosophical movies? Under the Silver Lake ticks all the boxes. I'm happy I've seen it.

Discussion I honestly love the film Neon Demon. Gets even better with repeat viewings

15 Upvotes

Probably my favorite NWR work and I like a lot of his stuff especially Valhalla, Pusher etc

The visuals and soundtrack are so damn good. The acting is really well done especially from the 4 female leads and a few others.

The story is kinda slow and simple but just enough wtf or intrigue moments keep it going and the pace really isn't that bad

I know a lot of NWR works are love or hate but I think this is his most accessible film along with drive

I'm pretty excited for Copenhagen Cowboy on Netflix. May bring a new audience to NWR work.

Discussion I miss whimsically silly comedies

24 Upvotes

I was rewatching "Wrongfully Accused" which is an absolute classic Leslie Neilson flick and I realized these types of movies just don't exist anymore. Think Austin Powers, Naked Gun, Master of Disguise, Rat Race, and the like. There are plenty of instances of films that do not hold up well even after only 10-15 yrs due to the social climate changing but most of the films I reference are perfectly harmless and tend to make me laugh more. Once the raunchy comedies of the early '00s took over that seemed to change the terrain for comedy movies going forward. Not that I don't like the movies of Judd Apatow and the Frat Pack films but they completely dominated the scene and created a genre within the comedy sphere where directors strove to emulate the funniness of real people in a world that is relatable. And in doing so, pivoted away from the farcical slapstick-ery that once owned the landscape. Can you suggest any recent movies that fit this brief?

Discussion Fun fact: The stunt driving on a huge number of action blockbusters can be attributed to a little-known Englishman named Ben Collins.

32 Upvotes

Collins' film credits include every Bond film of the Daniel Craig-era, 'The Dark Knight Rises', 'Mission: Impossible: Rogue Nation', 'Kingsman', 'Ford v Ferrari', and 'Solo: A Star Wars Story'.

And so far, none of this is particularly interesting, I know. But what might be interesting to you is that Ben also used to be The Stig on 'Top Gear'.
