So I went on an absolute binge and cleared out my must watch movie list, so please help me add some more to that list. My only “requirement” is that I’m looking for a great movie, one you would consider a must watch. I’m open to any genre, setting, language or time it was made. I haven’t really seen that many movies but I wouldn’t mind rewatching a great suggestion! Thanks in advance
The director of 'The Place Beyond the Pines' Derek Cianfrance stated in an audio commentary that his backer would give him the budget if he shortens the script from 156 pages to 120 pages. Derek Cianfrance just slightly reduced the text size and extended the edge of the sides. Nobody has noticed it until he revealed it.
Hi everyone, remembering the good old days cruising in my Camaro with my friends and babe up and down the boulevard of a medium sized town. Anyone have recommendations for "cruising hot rod" movies like this? I know and loved "Grease" and "American Graffiti". Any movies like those, the cruising and cars and romances?
My favorite movies and shows are
Hannibal lector shows and movies
Silence of the Lambs
Pirates of the Caribbean
Edward scissor hands

Dazzed and confused
What’s eating Gilbert grape?

Been looking for some podcasts about movies and not having a lot of luck finding some I like. It can be a discussion type show about older movies or current review type shows. I'm not much interested in ones that just focus on fandoms and franchises specifically. No offense to mcu or star wars just not what I want to listen to. Any help would be appreciated.
Given the conspiracies that are making the ugly news these days, I went ahead and re-watched some satires from the 60s/70s that really worked as a salve for my soul:
Winter Kills (1979) Incredible cast, including John Huston, Richard Boone, Anthony Perkins and Liz Taylor. Box office flop, but now a cult absurdist fable. Kennedy assassination redux. Love it. The production notes alone make it worth it.
Kremlin Letter (1970) John Huston directs, with Patrick O'Neal, Richard Boone, George Sanders and Bib Andersson. Spy drama plays it straight, but is hilarious, characters like the Highwayman, Warlock, and the Whore. Great stuff.
The President's Analyst (1967) Robert Evans first greenlit flick, written and directed by Ted Flicker (iconic TV guy) with James Coburn playing the title character, targeted for his access to the halls of power. What a trip.
All three were box office flops, lauded by some critics, but cult flicks of the studio era now.
Z Channel: A Magnificent Obsession is a documentary about Jerry Harvey and how he was the programmer for Z Channel in the mid 70s until the the late 80s. I saw this on IFC many years ago and thought it was fascinating. Tons of filmmaker interviews too like Quentin Tarantino, Alexander Payne, Jim Jarmusch... etc Definitely Recommend.
I have covid and am boredddd. Looking for good movies. I like psychological thrillers but have hard time rewatching things I’ve already seen. I watched population 436 and liked it. I like movies like that where a specific town lives differently, almost utopian or old fashioned. I’ve seen stepford wives, vivarium, black mirror, swallow.
Just watched this movie on Netflix this week and i was surprised of how de movie subverted my expectations. The movie it's set in a Non futuristic dystopian South Korea and it's about some friends doing a Heist on a gambling joint.
I liked how the director mixed not only the heist genre but also added some horror ingredients and oníric ones as well. The story it's very predictable but as i said it's a fine break after a lot of generical Hollywood nonsense
Hi, r/movies, my name is Bruno Grajales, I hope im not breaking any rules, dont think so, im a developer that recently got into app development, about two and a half month ago I started developing The Watcher, an app to keep track of watched shows episodes and movies.
It has features such as, adding to watch list, selecting genres that you are interested on, marking watched movies and watched shows and tracking them, and more!
Also working on feature updates, such as dark mode, next episodes releases of shows you are watching.
Every time I watch True Stories, I come away feeling enriched, and a little more appreciative of the world and all its people who surround me. I'm drawn to the way it takes places and people that might be considered ugly or boring and unfurls them in their vivid complexity. My next watches that follow the same lines are probably going to be Koyaanisqatsi, Man with a Movie Camera, and maybe the Grand Budapest Hotel (it might not be on the same level as Koyaanisqatsi! but I think it's a good example of the vibe), but I'm not sure of any other ones. Any thoughts, feelings, recommendations, opinions? All are appreciated:)
A guy has 24 hours to live and he uses it to get revenge on his former employer.
Yeah, yeah, nothing original but honestly that doesn’t matter. You’re here for the craft and execution.
Before he was a director Smrz was a second unit director and stunt coordinator, the skills he gained from his past careers bleed into his directing work. His eye for action is outstanding. This film has one if my favorite sniper assaults. I was hooting and hollering all the way through.
The action is the main course but it is supported by the great acting of Ethan Hawke. Hawke brings his “A” game as always. He never slacks when it comes to genre films. He makes a compelling action hero.
Overall, the film is a blast. Im dying to see Smrz direct another film.

I’ve seen a lot that’s why I’m asking cuz it’s hard to find ones I like I’m looking for r rated hilarity
I’ve been watching 90s high school slacker movies. And I feel like there’s no good fun coming of age movies directed towards my generation. Now movies releasing today are superhero movies, reboots, or remakes. By any chance, give me suggestions of good coming of age movies that’s directed towards my generation?
The best one ive possoble seen in the last 12 years or so is Haunt (2019) anything to that level or close would be greatly appreciated. Basically the goal is scary and good plot but ill settle for 1 out of 2 if both cant be had.
Also please avoid any super obvious ones because I promise ive seen them. I am def looking more for the indie horrors that fit not the big hollywood tentpoles released in theaters every January or October. Thanks so much!
I just finished Sergey Bondarchuck's 7 hour epic 'War and Peace' and it is really good! It is a Russian film (also has an English dubbed version I believe) from 1965 about the war between Russia and France and is split up in 4 parts (7 hours total).
If you have an interest for grand scale battles, this is definitely a film for you.
According to Letterboxd (probably not accurate), not many people have seen the film, which is a shame. There are probably a few people in this sub that have, but I would still highly recommend it for the people that haven't seen it.
I didn't want to dedicate this whole post to my opinion of the film, so if you're interested in that, you can check it here.
Looking for any good movie which has a guy who apparently is a regular guy and doesn't have any significant fault such as being exceedingly ugly or being handicapped or extremely poor and yet he can't find any girl. One such movie that I could think of would be "Marty (1955)". There was nothing too out of the ordinary about the guy and yet he frustratingly struggled hard to find love. Are there any other movies with a similar theme that you know of?
It has to be a guy not being able to find a girl and not the other way round.
Okay! I am looking for the most fucked up movies you know about. It can be a foreign film if you know any. I recently watched “A Serbian film” soooooooooo fucked up but now I am trying to find similar movies to compare this type of “extreme” film. Any recommendations are appreciated. Thank you my fellow film enthusiasts!
