Memory (Michel Franco, 2024) - 9/10
Franco shows once more he's the best "framer" in the business right now. He just composes the best shots. He's helped here with a DoP that gives him a gorgeous high-contrast-yet-very-soft light. But this isn't the point. This has nothing to do with cinematography. It's purely a mise en scene issue. And on this particular point, Franco is the best. He's also in the top 10 when it comes to structuring screenplays, as well as directing actors. The guy is good.

Be quick, or at least download them (there are tons of "youtube to mp4" websites) because some of them are disappearing. The white ribbon isn't available anymore.

If you explain to him the concept of story (ideally: feed him a pdf) he'll be better at that.
Yeah, those things are addictive.

I'm guessing Noodles is stoked.

Not really. I don't like the faces of those actors. There is a tv feel to them that we know Miller can often fall into. So I'm ambivelent. We will see.

Like I just wrote in the other thread, he's an entertainer. He's seeing his career as a story and he wants a good story.

Yeah, his understanding of 50s films is, to be charitable, deficient. And some of the films he enthusiastically endorses leaves me scratching my head. Rolling Thunder? Eh, it's OK, nothing I'd write about at length. Still, even when I don't get where he's coming from, QT can be entertaining.

Well, he is first and foremost an entertainer. All of his words, wether they are written on a page, told by him or by a character on screen, have one goal: entertain.

A year ago Tarantino asked if he could should the original script ending of Rolling Thunder for his film Movie Critic. I said that would be cool. I guess that won't be happening.

I think i still have him on facebook. I might send him a screenshot to lure him back here then it's your job to hold him tight.

So many dead people coming back these days.

The film was on Netflix at least here in France a while ago.

No, that was him:

Once Upon a Time in Anatolia (2011) - 9/10. After apprehending a murderer, Turkish authorities go in search of a body. They find it. Nuri Bilge Ceylan: "The title was an actual quote from one of the drivers in the real story, and even though I like Sergio Leone, there?s no reference to him in this film. Maybe this is a Turkish western, but I never thought about it."

I own the BD but have only seen the first 15min a long time ago. It was gorgeous to look at. Is there anything more to it than a great atmosphere and gorgeous scenery?
