Cinema Paradiso a.k.a. JCam's Multiplex

Bonita: I'm actually here to ask JCam: do you fancy posting in a film-clip thread?

JCamilo: Hence that is why I am an anarchist that promotes tyranny and a Tyrant that promotes anarchy and linguistic development.



Feel free to post your favorite *other-worldly* movie clips in this thread. Bring popcorn.

I begin with El ángel exterminador (The Exterminating Angel), directed by Spaniard Luis Bunuel while in exile in 1962.

Thanks for the video, I hadn't seen it yet.

Here is my entry.



Ladri di Biciclette (The Bicycle Thieves). It's a film from 1948 by Vittorio De Sica. It's set in post-WW2 Italy and offers a realistic view on a society trying to rebuild itself and people trying to cope with everyday difficulties. It has a very simple story and a lot of the people in the movie weren't actors, but just real people from the street. That is what makes it so easy to identify with the characters.

The movie is available in it's entirety on YouTube (10 parts), but it's such a beautiful movie that you should really see it on DVD. These days it's a bit rare, so you might not find it in your local store, but you can order it online from sites such as these: http://www.criterion.com/asp/release.asp?id=374

I always considered the best part of cinema is the spectador part (this and the fact I never posted a single video also)

For once, this music is rather cool
another stuff, this is based without being based on Homer's Odissey
It is a great movie Where art Thou Brother by Cohen Brothers...

Good stuff. Thanks. As I said, feel free to post your fave clips often

And J, I thought you were going to post Marcel Camus' Orfeu Negro. Well, perhaps you will, next time.

Boyo, I saw The Bicycle Thief when I was a teenager. It's good to see it again -- at least the movie reminded me that life in Italy was once much more simpler.

I find a lot of the classics incredibly dated, save for a few of the WWII classicsa nd some of the SciFi, like Logan's Run (alluminum robot n'all).

Incredibly, on Saturday, I sat through Beverly Hills Chihuahuas. My kids have yet to see a movie they openly admitted to not liking. But this was the first time neither could come up with their favorite part in our post movie discussion on the way home.

I realize they didn't make that crap to get an invitation to Cannes, but damn - I can't remember something more awful in recent memory.

Some movies do not stand the test of time, yes. Then again, some amaze us to no end. The following is a scene that has waited 34 years to happen, in my country. (Disclaimer: JCam's Multiplex is not responsible for any political incorrectness in your popcorn box.)

Blazing Saddles (1974)
Director: Mel Brooks

Once upon a time, Mel Brooks was almost funny as the Python gang...

Now, I like this movie, back to the time when I considered the possibility of Listening Strauss all day long (not because it is played here but well)...

We were talking about cell phones in the other thread and there was a time no too long ago when phones were large, heavy and had cords attached to them. But even in those day, you could have the strangest conversations on them.

I recently saw Children of Paradise (Les Enfants du Paradis), which was very good, and Fassbinder's Querelle, which was like watching paint dry.

You know the scene it's very hum-drum
And my favorite song's entitled "Boredom"...

Querelle. He was only being loyal to Jean Genet's original story, no?

I will have something special for Heather this coming week, stay tuned.

When searching for the following clip I noticed one of the comments:

Quote:
Amazing this is the only Fassbinder picture I liked. Usually his stuff is really boring and downright sadistic. Fear Eats the Soul is actually a very sweet love story warts and all. It is quite remarkable that this picture was shot in two weeks.
Am I the only one who thinks that Fassbinder was being 100% cynical? Anyway we will never find out. Bless his soul, R.W. Fassbinder.

Ali: Fear Eats the Soul (1974)
Director: Rainer Werner Fassbinder (1946-1982)

Hilarious. I've just added it to my wish list. I love the Indian accent. No matter what you say with it, it's going to sound funny.

A British colleague at work told me about Sellers' radio shows, I'll put one up soon.

I've been trying to master the Indian accent for years, but I can't seem to get the hang of it. When I try it, it sounds more like Irish.
