It's funny you mention this point now and not back in 2015 because I've seen a YouTube video about this very incident a couple of weeks ago. The video made was making the same point you're making: according to the guy, it was very much of a business decision. Also, I seem to remember the scene in the movie contracts a lot the timing of what took place over a few weeks. I'll try to find the video again, I don't rememeber if it had any source other than the book and the movie. Now have you noticed how Marty tends to use music from the area the movie takes place?

Nonsensical, but I guess that's the best I will get from you on this one. NOW BACK TO MANK.

Actually, back to a western:

First Cow (2020) - 8/10
Great naturalistic western. Both the story and the 4/3 16mm are put to great use to depict the nature, the sets and costumes (there is even a 3 scenes sequence about buying new boots and having to hide them because people notice too much and the character cannot abide to be noticed), the accessories (i love the way they play checkers), the (terrific and non Stetson) hats, the economy of the area, the diversity of the old west. It would make an incredible double feature with There Will Be Blood: it shows the birth of the american capitalism, but this one is from the standpoint of the weak while PTA follows the strong and powerful. The movie is so much with the weak that it refuses to depict violence: all physical violence takes place off screen (either blurred out, or right outside of the frame, or inside when the camera stays outside or outside when the camera stays inside) and even psycological violence isn't highlighted by the editing or the camerawork. Also, great, great bromance. It would make an incredible double feature with The Master. But in First Cow, none of the two friends is trying to seduce anybody. They're just friends. Automatically. Freely (it all the possible meanings of the word). It's a movie that's as sweet as it is cruel. Even in its crualty, it's sweet. The main flaw is that the pacing is off. It's very slow but this isn't an issue: the issue is that it keeps the same pacing the whole time. There is much more to say about it but has anybody here seen it apart from Roy?

This is indeed a MUCH better ending than the stupidity we got. And Edgar was so good with mirrors and transitions in the first part that I would have loved to see him play with them more radically during the climax. We had the Stanton Cuts, are we gonna have the DJ scripts now?

That being said if that ending would have saved the movie it means you didn?t hate the first part.

You?re the same person we are too, you?re just being a meanie to Fincher and Wright to hide that you?re a French commie living next to the Eiffel Tower.

the first half was the epitome of art/entertainment that our friend Sergio talks about so much

and that our not-friend DJ hates so much.

Ha, you don?t like to feel young?
Anyway, your loss. It?s one of the greatest hour of cinema that was ever made.

Well, let me put it this way: I hated this film.

You cannot hate the first part. I just don?t believe it.

Last Night in Soho 11/10 and 4/10

The first third is as exhilarating as it gets. I had never experienced such a contagiously joyful ride on a big screen. This NEEDS to be seen and heard in a movie theater: they're remastering classic songs from the 60's, you'll never ever hear Cilia Black's You're my World the same way after. The second third keeps the same virtuosity but the horror parts are a big fail (looks more like Disneyland's haunted hosue than like the ialian horror movies that inspired Wright) and the "behind the scenes of the Soho dream" parts aren't half as disturbing as they should. The last part mostly sucks, it becomes stupid, we start spending way too much time with underdevelopped characters for stupid twists. But I don't really care. The first part is just so, so good. It radically changed my mood for days.
Also, I now see how Edgar Wright is one of the very few direct Leone inheritors (and not only because of the beautiful transitions between different periods).

It's a movie I love every other time I watch it, and that disappoints me the other time. It's a also a movie I keep returning to.

Also DJ totally forgot the biggest landmark in the history of Cinema.

2000: The Patriot, starring a well known antisemitic public figure, showed that canonballs do bounce.

Must watch 3h40 making of: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xtlRaML1Px0

Although, yes, if you do have 3h40 in front of you, maybe watch OUATIA again.
