  1. Fresh album, only one track available at the moment, yet colour me interested. Waiting for more to make judgement.
  2. Can we make lists of Folk Horror films and novels/short stories in this thread? The Wicker Man Midsommar The VVitch A Field in England Short stories by Algernon Blackwood, Lord Dunsany, Arthur Machen, Poe, Nathaniel Hawthorne. That's my short list. Tell us what you know!
  3. So by now some of you guys may know about my obsession with the David Fincher film "The Game" which I went as far as to create multiple tribute albums/alternative soundtracks to (as well as a comprehensive online and IRL scavenger hunt based on the film). Anyway, I thought instead of creating a thread on the film- which I may do as well- that I'd draw focus to the screenwriters John Brancato and Michael Ferris--which not much is known or published about them outside of just their list of credits, at least that I could find. This screenwriting duo who penned the film's story, have a vast resume of films - and they all share a similar thread: very paranoid, conspiratorial thrillers that are usually psychological, often creepy, and typically very mind bending and puzzling. I also think they deserve an IDM award for the types of movies they write. Naturally, the 1997 pair up of Brancato and Ferris with Fincher for The Game was just a dead on perfect move. And adding Michael Douglas as character Van Orton just put the icing on the cake. Here is a list of their films: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Brancato_and_Michael_Ferris What I've been finding most fascinating lately is the detailed connection I discovered between several of their films- namely The Game and Terminator 3: Rise of The Machines... No true spoilers here or anything (soft spoilers at best).. In The Game, fraudulent corporation Consumer Recreation Services are a massive part of the film's focus and the company behind the "game" that Michael Douglas plays. They are referred to in various parts to the film (partial spoiler alert) as CRS - but using different words for the same acronym all under the guise of different offshoots of the same company (Cable Repair Specialists, California Regal Sedans, etc). In Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, (and for the first time in the series), its revealed that Skynet project's parent company (who built the Terminators themselves) is called Cyber Research Systems which uses the same acronym CRS. There's even a wiki on it: http://terminator.wikia.com/wiki/Cyber_Research_Systems I can't help but think there may be a connection--at the very least a simple nod to the evil corporation theme of Brancato and Ferris' previous films... but possibly even more deep and complex of a link (which would be amazing). I've scourged Google for any published mention of this connection, and found 1 mere sighting where another person mentioned something, but was very surface and wasn't really intentional linking. Either way, it seems hard to imagine these were coincidental, and now I'm on a quest to watch every Brancato/Ferris film to see if there are other threads running through their various screenplays. So far, I've seen The Game, The Net, Catwoman, Terminator 3, Flight of Black Angel, and an episode of The Others. Anyone else familiar with their work, or keen on any of this? p.s. Fun side note- and [spoiler ALERT for both The Net and The Game] In their 95 screenplay for The Net, an evil corporation is also featured- called The Praetorians- computer hackers bent on stealing people's identity and using anti-virus software to actually infect computers with viruses to create mayhem and steal information-- almost identical to the goal of CRS in The Game. (Also, found it pretty cool that the software company Sandra Bullock works for is called Cathedral Software ... ahem... CathedRal Software. I know I know, that's a stretch). p.p.s. this thread is literally the first time I've seen any mention of these screenwriters on the web that i could find (outside of databases, wikipedia's, credits on product pages etc). I know screenwriters are often behind the scenes, but damn, it's crazy to me how obscure these guys seem to be as far as information, etc. I did find their production company website, but it's outdated and seems to be more of just a framework. I was excited to hear their narration on the directors commentary feature of The Game's Criterion Collection edition though. :)

  6. Can anyone recommend me movies in the vein of Drive (2011), Maniac (2012), that sort of stuff? I love this kind of dark, rainy, inner city setting. I even started playing Max Payne 2 again because of this. If I'm not mistaken, a lot of this stuff stems from the 50s, but I'm not sure if I'll enjoy, so I'm guessing 70s and up would be best. Thanks a lot! PS. You can recommend games too if you like, Gemini Rue is a great noir adventure / puzzle game
  7. Read this 2012 article in The New Yorker the other day. This actually seems like one of those long-form avant-garde films that would be really interesting to watch. Has anyone been fortunate enough to see it? Does anyone know of any other interesting long-form films that don't seem like they'd be absolute toss?
  8. Trailer for David Michod's The Rover is finally out. Animal Kingdom got a lot of love on WATMM so thought it deserved its own thread. No youtube link yet but the trailer can be viewed on their official facebook page. They used the intro from Haxan Cloak's last album https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=783656884978045
  9. Nobody can accuse Shia LaBeouf, erstwhile star of the Transformer movies and burgeoning arthouse adventurer, of not being keen. After revealing that he took acid to prepare for a tripped-out scene in new film The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman and drank moonshine while filming John Hillcoat's upcoming prohibition tale Lawless, the 26-year-old actor has now claimed he secured a part in Lars von Trier's controversial new film Nymphomaniac by posting sex tapes to the Danish arch-provocateur. The tapes reportedly featured LaBeouf and his girlfriend Karolyn Pho, whose reaction to such salacious material falling into the hands of the most unpredictable film-maker in Europe is at this stage unknown. "I sent him videotapes of me and my girlfriend having sex and that's how I got the job," LaBeouf told late-night US talk show host Chelsea Handler during an appearance on her Chelsea Lately programme. "I don't know what it's gonna be until I get out there. I know he's a very dangerous director; I know we're trying to do something different. It's not your typical film. "Von Trier is promising to release Nymphomaniac in softcore and hardcore versions, with the latter reportedly breaking film-making taboos by including footage of real sex. LaBeouf suggested in a recent interview that body doubles would most likely be used for the film's more salacious scenes, but has also expressed a willingness to follow orders on set, whatever they may be. "There's a disclaimer at the top of the script that basically says we're doing it for real," he told MTV last month. "Everything that is illegal, we'll shoot in blurred images. Other than that, everything is happening. "LaBeouf's willingness to share with Von Trier would appear to be something of a volte-face from his earlier assertion that he'd have to consider Pho's feelings before engaging in real sex on film. In fact, there are so many contradictions in the actor's proclamations on Nymphomaniac that one wonders if he may have picked up a touch of tongue-in-cheek disease from the famously playful director. http://www.guardian.co.uk/film/2012/aug/31/shia-labeouf-sex-tape-von-trier-nymphomaniac http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1937390/

  13. "From his formative years sculpting alien heads to his recent "jaqapparatus 1" robotic performance-art installation, seminal music video director-turned-artist Chris Cunningham retraces his varied and critically acclaimed career in this personal, self-directed short. One of an elite group of directors alongside Spike Jonze, Michel Gondry and Jonathan Glazer who redefined MTV in the 1990s, Cunningham elevated the pop promo to a burgeoning art form with daring and disturbing music videos for the likes of Aphex Twin, Björk and Madonna. While his peers graduated to the big screen, Cunningham went underground, quit making promos and commercials, and spent the best part of a decade experimenting with fusions of film, music, art and technology that culminated in a string of live audio-visual performances at festivals in Japan and Europe. For "jaqapparatus 1", his first installation unveiled last month at the Audi City London high-tech concept store—a shadowy, sci-fi set involving two laser-firing robots locked in what seemed like a brutal mating ritual-cum-war—Cunningham cast two Talos motion-controlled camera rigs as his anthropomorphized protagonists. “Mounted on the robots heads are powerful lasers which they use to attack, repel and communicate with each other,” explains Cunningham, “a kind of duel, a surreal mating display which sees each machine trying to dominate the other." http://www.nowness.c...m-japapparatus1

  20. there r obviously films that require us to turn them off or walk out or which we regret the time we spent to watch them. we might scorn the individual(s) who recommended such a warm, stinking mass to us, with little room for forgiveness. maybe it caused an uncomfortable evening with a loved one or romantic interest. whatever the case may be, this usually is a sign of a films poor quality, but could also be caused by the viewers poor tastes. so plees, when u find the time, here or there; if u would be so kind as to post the names of films you've watched that you would just as well save others the time in avoiding. films which for one reason or another displeased you.
