The Poughkeepsie Tapes - Posting this so I can get back to it, haven’t watched it yet, or checked the completeness of it. Supposed to be pretty scary.
"Anything that claims to be a god…should be eaten"
Also a Jodorowsky film, The Rainbow Thief (1990) is the story of “A petty crook, in search of the proverbial pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, hopes to cash in by befriending the heir to a huge fortune.”x
This one fortunately is in english, but unfortunately was uploaded with built in french subtitles.
Watching this instead:
Fando y Lis (1968) - Directed by Alejandro Jodorowsky, Fando and his partially paralyzed lover, Lis search for the mythical city of Tar.
This one has english subs.
Sorry this blog’s such a shit-show. Gonna watch this tonight:
Tombs of the Blind Dead (1972) - La Noche del Terror ciego was directed by Amando de Ossorio and is the story of a group of college students stumbling across the tomb of a group of 13th century knights who were sentenced to have their eyes pecked out as punishment for their black magic rituals.
Ed: Sorry, subs are apparently unavailable. D:
THE COMPUTERS THAT CONTROL (HD) by LARRY CARLSON
So glad I found out this guy has a tumblr!
Baraka (1992) - Directed by Ron Fricke, it is similar to Koyaanisqatsi in that it has no dialogue or narrative, but focuses on any religions throughout the world, rather than Man’s environmental impact. It is shot beautifully and has a wonderful soundtrack, definitely worth watching, but as with similar art-house films, what the viewer takes from it depends on the individual.
Directed by Godfrey Reggio (Debut), Music by Philip class. An art-house film that depicts Man’s effect on nature through film and music, with no dialogue. With this method of portrayal, the viewer takes from it what they will.
I thought I had posted this previously, but I don’t see it up anymore. Anyway, I never made it through this, but I watched Baraka last night, which was awesome, and inspires me to give this film a second chance. If I can find it, Baraka should follow shortly.
