My Night at Maud’s (1969)

"Rohmer and Almendros […] treat each shot as a series of carefully selected conditions within which their characters have space to move around freely. That’s not to say that Rohmer didn’t have total control over the proceedings—he was notorious for putting his actors through endless rehearsals before even turning on the camera, and for having them stick scrupulously to their lines take after take—but only that he had a gift for giving his movies an impression of contingency and spontaneity. He favored spacious medium shots whenever possible. His camera movement is restrained yet adaptive, as if he’s adjusting for the unexpected trajectories of his subjects on the fly. His scenes often stretch out generously so as to follow a given interaction through to the end, only to cut off brusquely immediately after. Each tiny action or gesture feels free and undetermined; things, we are led to believe, could always have been otherwise."

Anonymous asked: hi, i was wondering if you knew anything about filipino cinema or if you have any recommendations? sorry if it's a rather vast/vague question, i just haven't seen/heard any filipino films in my life and you seem to have an idea about even the most obscure directors, so i thought i'd come to you for help.

Unfortunately I can’t help, the only film from Philippines I’ve seen is On the Job and it was an ok movie… if anyone reading this can recommend a film feel free to do it.  

There’s a lot of Filipino films that have become available on Netflix recently but I haven’t delved into them yet.  The older stuff looks interesting, especially Lino Brocka’s filmography. Some notable films from past festival-going, etc:

Kubrador (2006) Directed by Jeffrey Jeturian

Serbis (2008) Directed by Brillante Mendoza

Cavite (2005) Directed by Neil dela Llana & Ian Gamazon

Note: Serbis seems to elicit very strong reactions, and not just because of the sexual content.  I remember it being very ambitious, if flawed.
