"Vampyr" - 1932. Trippy and genuinely creepy. Almost like a fever dream. The visuals are what is key here - Dreyer and Maté were masters of framing, close-ups and shadows.



Watched this the other day, very cool. Like some sort of documentary but also not at the same time. Saw it on MUBI if anyones interested. Got it 3 euro for 3 months, fairly reasonable beyond that, 10e a month I think? (Might sneak the student deal) Updates every 30 days and full of things you mightn't have seen, which is the whole point? ie fuck off Netflix.

Any western recommendations? Preferably with as much Indian action as possible.

Touchè.

There's a perfect Patrice O'Neal bit to post but can't be fucked looking for it. American Indians/Native Americans/Comanche/Apache/Sioux/Heathens/Savages.

Yeah, Pete on here put us all wide of the deal a few weeks ago - it's actually €1 for the entire 3 months, I think. Great value. A lot of good shit on it.

If you enjoyed "Vampyr" -  next week MUBI are putting up Dreyer's stone cold classic "The Passion Of Joan of Arc" - 1928.

"The Passion Of Joan of Arc" - 1928.

Unreal if it is a euro. The fact you can have 5 devices too is great, I can split the account with a mate if needed. Got to see the Strickland shorts that were exclusive too. I enjoy their lists too.

Will have to throw on the Passion, never seen it but heard great things, 100 years old now I think.

I think that I'm right in saying that - my account says next payment due is April. I gave my old man my MUBI log-in so it's dead handy for that.

I went from "Vampyr" to trying to re-watch "Semi Pro" last night on Netflix and after 15 minutes said out loud "What in fuck's name am I doing?". It was shite. I think I thought it was shite too when it came out.

Watched Brawl in Cell Block 99. Thought it was shite. Bone Tomahawk didn't do a whole lot for me and this was worse.

The Vast Of Night - Much hyped Amazon Original movie. Mystery/aliens malarkey. Excellently shot movie, the presentation of it as being a Twilight Zone style feature worked very well. The story was engaging enough with the mystery aspect of what was going on but the ending was a bit fluff.

White Tiger - Does a great job of showing the huge inequality in India and the mental conditioning of the lower class that the highest goal in life is to serve someone better off than you. Overly long but worth a look.

Sweet Virginia - The trailer had me expecting a decent action turn again from Jon Bernthal. Unfortunately not, terribly dull movie. Avoid

Watched a few Casavettes' films recently, in particular "Killing of a Chinese Bookie" and "A Woman Under the Influence". Both great. Bit long but it was fine, almost shot like documentaries. Always liked Casavettes as an actor but he's a great film maker. Must throw on 'Husbands' and 'Opening Night' soon.

Just spotted that "Wake In Fright" - 1971 is up on MUBI now. To my mind one of the greatest films ever made - if you have the stomach for it (
Spoiler: ShowHide
there's a prolonged, not simulated and rather dark kangaroo hunt midway through the film
which may upset certain people).

Thought lost for decades until a print turned up in the storage room of a cinema in Galway of all places.

Set in the Australian outback, it follows a bonded school teacher making his way home from his remote school through a mining town in order to catch a Christmas flight to Sydney where his girlfriend lives. Directed by Ted Kotcheff  the man who went on to make "North Dallas Forty", "First Blood" and also, inexplicably, "Weekend At Bernies" - this fact burns my brain & starring Gary Bond and Donald Pleasence.

It's worth getting MUBI for the free week just to see this film. It is a masterpiece.

Fuck it - even better! Well worth your time.

It was recommended to me by a buddy of mine 10 years ago or so - whenever the BluRay came out - and it blew me away. It's one of the very few films where I've had to sit quietly for a while afterwards still thinking about it.
