Films You Just Watched Thread Anonymous Comrade 02/20/2020 (Thu) 01:02:42 No. 6303 [Reply] [Last]
Hello, the most recent movie threads have seemed a bit unfocused, this thread is for the discussion of movies we just watched and other anon's takes on them. So, without further ado I'll begin. I just watched Parasite last night, it was pretty good I think, but not as cutting edge or witty as I was expecting. I thought it was a bit unfocused and threw a lot at the wall to see what stuck, but on the other hand, it was fun and more interesting than most. A solid 8/10. I do an IMDB rating for each film I watch, for my own reference mostly, but you can see each film I watched lately and my rating if you're curious or want to ask about them. If other anons have something similar feel free to post. https://www.imdb.com/user/ur46013471/ratings

Somebody who truly knows about film/art help me out here: I've been stuck a lot on the film Joker (2019). Thing is, I watched the movie when it came out. In a really good movie theater, very good sound system for that OST and I was severely depressed at the time. All this to say, I had an amazing, approaching psychedelic experience. Saying that I thought the movie was good would be an understatement. I felt like I was entering into some kind of strange but exultant nihilistic communion with the universe through how much I unironically related with the hyper-alienation of the protagonist, the instinct displayed against the status quo, and the fact they have a pseudo-anti-neoliberalism message only enhanced it even more. However, I have been watching movies for a long time. I have a basic grasp of movies as art or as a display of a genuine artistic vision. I have acquired some media and textual comprehension through experience and some of the classes I took in Uni. I understand there's a difference between subjective experience and objective reality. And the more I thought of it, the more I realized it objectively wasn't that good. Phoenix's performance was stupendous, the OST was excellent and combined with the visuals pretty well, and the production design choice of mimicking the Taxi Driver aesthetic was a good one. But apart from that, it's the epitome of the "we live in a society" meme. It portrays tragic "amounts" of alienation but doesn't add anything new to it or add any subtlety, it bandwagons of a lot of the ephemeral contemporaneous imagery of incels and whatnot. It's a manifesto of endless self-pity and inertia justified through the despair of the late-stage capitalist subject and the anti-neoliberalism is fucking razor thin. My question is: how do I deal with this huge contradiction between my subjective experience and my objective reasoning? Honestly kinda breaks my heart to be cynical about the movie but I also don't wanna be a rube who unironically thinks this movie is somehow dangerous or controversial in any meaningful way. Sorry if it's a self-indulgent long post, but I just felt like writing it down.
>>20276 Joker 2019 is not dangerous in any way, and is a good expression of the realities of what mob mentalities and many "revolutionary martyrs" are - people who are driven by their own selfish reasons to do acts that inspire others as a byproduct, and that this is a symptom of capitalist sickness. See the Joker thread for more

9/10 would watch again
>>20276 weirdly I also had a psychedelic experience surrounding the movie Joker. But later when I try to write about it I could not combine the ideas properly, I wanted to compare and contrast the Joker, 12 Angry Men. Something about believing and the good of America or the good of the world and that naive belief in society that the character had before becoming Joker. You can see the same belief in 12 Angry Men but also a sense of cynicism as well as understanding that the movie would be a miraculous outcome. To me it seems like the Joker is also a miraculous outcome except tragic I think this tragedy speaks to a in ways we cannot fully comprehend yet because we're still in the throes of this pre miracle stage of capitalism. I
>>20305 something about it felt completely hollow to me, don't know if it was the ford cameo or the general big dumb action movie sensibilities that creeped in.

Thoughts on what my next book should be? I'm almost done with my current book (Ellis, Bret Easton. American Psycho. Vintage Books, New York. 1991) and I wanna get through a bulk of the books I bought last year when I erroneously thought my reading momentum would keep up. The first 10 or so on the list are ones I am at least *pretty* interested in, although arranged by page count so I can get the most done quickly. Although I am thinking of skipping Less Than Zero (for now) and starting Discworld to see if that is my kinda thing or not, and to get a break from Bret Easton Ellis' style.

update: I started on The Color of Magic
bump, does anyone else read for fun?
>>20273 I used to, but I fried my attention span pretty bad. I'm trying to rehab it slowly, short stories and poems, I was very proud of myself for finishing The Death of Ivan Illych. Discworld books rule, so good choice on that one. If anybody is or has gone through online attention span shortening, got any tips or tricks on getting it back?
>>20279 yeah, that was totally me Senior year of highschool, a combination of my internet addiction, ADHD, and anxiety issues finally made it so I couldn't read a single page without my mind wandering and taking like 5 minutes to turn the page The best advice I can give is to have an isolated reading space, away from any digital devices or distractions. Don't even leave your phone in your pocket, and set up a dedicated reading chair in another room or something. Although what actually helped me was finding a book that really captured my interest and reminded me what I used to love about reading, but that's obviously super personalized and idk if I could direct you there. Maybe re-reading a childhood favorite? Actually, I recently started reading Midnight Sun (Twilight from Edward's perspective, just came out a few months ago) and I find myself reading for hours and much more pages than books I otherwise enjoyed like American Psycho or 2001: A Space Odyssey. For me, that was the perfect mix of something old/something new. I also started a New Year's resolution to read 100 pages a week (so I can actually get through this reading list), and I try to read 20 pages a day, with 2 days built in for breaks/lapses. 20 pages isnt a lot, maybe like 30 minutes of reading, but it really adds up over the weeks, so you can start to get invested in stories and it won't be so much harder to keep reading.

>>20225 If you like ringworld try Protector. It's short but fucking awesome. Draco's Tavern and world out of time are also great Niven books. If you're into retro-scifi Jules Verne is always a good read; journey to the center of the earth is a great start, the part at the beginning with war-mongering americans is fucking hilarious. If you want something somber or reflexive try pic related, about a vintage alt-right nipponcel struggling with being gay.
