Interesting.

I?m really pumped about this. I saw Nolan?s Dunkirk at the AFI Silver in 70mm, and it was great. I?m expecting a similarly awesome experience this time too.

One thing I?ve always found a shame was that Alex Cox did not become a kind of Quentin Tarantino. Give Alex Cox a great cinematographer and editor, and you?ve got magic. Take them away, along with all the budgets, and we?ll ? what can you expect?

Has anyone here seen ?Fat man and little boy?? I think it is way better than its reviews would suggest. I am however expecting Nolan?s version to be better.

I?ll be watching in 70mm at the AFI Silver. No IMAX there though.

Duck, You Sucker / Re: Blu-ray to be released Dec 2013

It goes the other way around. Most people, including very knowledgable movie people, unerestimate how the technical stuff impacts their viewing experience. I'm convinced many people including Stanton are buggued by something in DYS that they cannot put their finger on and it turns out it's the cinematography. More precisely the lighting.

I agree with the first statement here. I think you?re being a tad harsh on Giuseppe Ruzzolini here though.

I was watching an interesting interview with Roger Deakins the other day where he said it was a shame Alex Cox stopped making big budget stuff. There?s still time for him to pair up with Deakins again though. Unfortunately not with Robby M?ller anymore though.

I was just reading about this after it showing at Cannes. I?m looking forward to seeing it.

Agree Eastwood in the old days would have made a good studio director get the product at or under budget out and on to the next one. I find most of his films not very artistic.

Yes, agreed. His fare is generally worth watching and sometimes powerful, but it is not artistic like something by Cimino or, indeed, Mann.

There's not though. Regardless of the scope of a story, Eastwood is going to finish under budget, keep the story grounded and tell said story in an efficient manner. Maybe 1974 Cimino would make a movie like Unforgiven in whatever way, but late 70's Cimino is the polar opposite of Eastwood in every way imaginable.

What about Year of the Dragon, The Sicilian, Desperate Hours and Sunchaser?

Roma came out pretty quickly. That one definitely merited a release.

Whenever it finally arrives. Netflix isn't swift to cut their product loose (we're STILL waiting for The Ballad of Buster Scruggs), and then it will probably go to Criterion, who will sit on it some more.

They can sit on that as long as they want. Was not impressed.

I had to watch this in parts because it was long and I struggle to find the time these days to sit down and watch something uninterrupted  :-[ It was indeed beautifully filmed (I wouldn?t expect anything less from something involving I??rritu), but did feel overly long. I was getting frustrated with the whole point of it until it finally came together toward the end. Nice flick. Only once again reinforcing my impression that South America (or more precisely Mexico and Chile) is where the best stuff is hailing from these days.

Apparently it ran even longer during its screening at the Venice film festival. Good thing he decided to chop it down somewhat before unleashing it on the masses. No doubt we will get to see them as extras on the home video release. The more I think about this one, the more I appreciate it.

Terrific photography, too. https://www.indiewire.com/2023/02/bardo-cinematography-interview-1234812221/

Once Upon A Time In The West / Re: 'West' blu ray May 31

They put the scene in because they deleted the scene at the trading post; so they needed to somehow show Harmonica survived the shootout. As usual, one bad decision (deleting trading post) begets another (adding Rising).

It?s all explained in this essential article http://www.fistful-of-leone.com/forums/index.php?topic=10564.msg149153#msg149153

I used to have a copy of that issue of video watchdog but it disappeared in a box of books traveling between Brazil and the US when I was relocating once.

With the trading post scene intact, the rising scene definitely should not be in the film. Even without, the ?avenging Angel? theme still works, I suppose.
