Hidden Film Gems (1/??): Judex (1963) dir. George Franju
"Conceived as an homage to Louis Feuillade’s 1916 cult silent serial of the same name, Judex kicks off with the mysterious kidnapping of a corrupt banker by a shadowy crime fighter and spins out into a thrillingly complex web of deceptions. Combining stylish sixties modernism with silent-cinema touches and even a few unexpected sci-fi accents, Judex is a delightful bit of pulp fiction and a testament to the art of illusion”. (x)
#1 reason you all need to go see Snowpiercer:
- The Weinstein Company doesn’t want you to see it.
They have tried to bury this movie. They didn’t think America was smart enough to handle it. They wanted it dumbed down, with twenty minutes cut. Joon-ho Bong refused and now they’re trying to bury it. It’s in theaters right now and will be on VOD on Friday.
So see the movie. Pay for it. Prove the Weinstein Company wrong.
Don’t know your place. Don’t accept your place. Don’t be a shoe.
The fact is we are all stuck inside this blasted train. We are all stuck in this hunk of metal. And this train is a closed ecosystem, we must always strive a balance. Food, water… population…

As far back as I can remember, I always wanted to be a gangster

The idea that you can’t be a supporter of the arts while pirating media is ridiculous to me. Today alone, I spent $60 on 3 Criterions, and over the past year I’ve spent at least a thousand or more. I pay big bucks for new vinyls occasionally, and I am a frequent moviegoer. I spend nearly all my disposable income on media, but as soon as I download a couple movies I’m not sure I’d even like (and therefore don’t want to drop money on them quite yet) I’m not longer a patron of the things I care the most about. I’m a broke college student that just wants to appreciate films, and I can’t always pay to do so at the rate I watch them.
There’s also the recurring scenario in which there’s an indie or foreign film in limited release that won’t be shown anymore near me. This has been happening more and more often now that I’ve moved out of Austin, which had an abundance of indie theaters. In those cases, yes, I might download a film to even be able to watch it at all. And sometimes, that ends up with me purchasing the hard copy when its finally released.
If I truly didn’t have respect for the film industry, I wouldn’t spend the amounts that I do, and its extremely annoying to hear people say otherwise.

Det sjunde inseglet (Ingmar Bergman, 1957)
Let’s leave the Jews out of this just for a moment. Let’s think of another minority. One that… One that can go unnoticed if it needs to. There are all sorts of minorities, blondes for example… Or people with freckles. But a minority is only thought of as one when it constitutes some kind of threat to the majority. A real threat or an imagined one. And therein lies the fear. If the minority is somehow invisible, then the fear is much greater. That fear is why the minority is persecuted. So, you see there always is a cause. The cause is fear. Minorities are just people. People like us.
