#criterioncollection #strawdogs #sampeckinpah #psychologicalthriller #revengefilms #controversialfilms #bannedfilms #dustinhoffman #newhollywood #britishcinema  Sam Peckinpah's 1971 meditation on "ultra- violence" Straw Dogs. A violent rape/revenge tale about a young couple, in a rural English community, terrorised by macho & misogynistic local men. The final showdown is an orgy of blood-soaked rage & the brutality shocked many film-goers of the era. Released the year other controversial classics A Clockwork Orange & The Devils hit the screens. At the dawn of the 70's, The New Hollywood had arrived, changing cinema forever. An excellent re-issue from Criterion with extras galore.

#criterioncollection #viridiana #luisbunuel #blackcomedy #canneswinners #worldcinema #fernandorey #silviapinal #bannedfilms #religiouscomedy. Great surrealist Luis Bunuel's blasphemous 1961 black comedy Viridiana. With a plot about a novice nun, a sleazy uncle, beggars, thieves, degenerates & whores, Viridiana was a scandal at Cannes that year. Infamous for it's Last Supper tableau & its scathing attack on the Catholic Church, it's  now considered a masterpiece. It won the Palme D'or & is still jolting today as when it was released. On Criterion Collection.

#indicatorbluray #scum #alanclarke #controversialmovies #socialdrama #borstal #juvenileprison #britishcinema #raywinstone #bannedfilms #bbc #cultfilms  Alan Clarke's 1979 controversial classic Scum. Set in a "Borstal" or juvenile prison, the film graphically highlights the extreme violence, racism, bullying & institutionalised behaviour of inmates & prison officers. An extraordinary cast of young up-and-coming British actors star in the movie that caused a social uproar among the conservative of the era. It's one of the best English movies of the 70's & still has the power to startle & shock. A provocative masterpiece. Indicator UK have released a box set with a new print of the movie & and 1/2 a days worth of extras. Will be on many end of year "Top 10" lists, I reckon.

Film of the Night: “GRAND ILLUSION” by Jean Renoir (1937, France)

Winner: Best Artistic Ensemble, 1937 Venice Film Festival. 
Starring: Jean Gabin, Marcel Dalio, Dita Parlo, Pierre Fresnay, Julien Carette, Gaston Modot & Erich von Stroheim.

Written by Renoir and Charles Spaak.

“4 stars...It's not a movie about a prison escape, nor is it jingoistic in its politics; it's a meditation on the collapse of the old order of European civilization. Perhaps that was always a sentimental upper-class illusion, the notion that gentlemen on both sides of the lines subscribed to the same code of behavior. Whatever it was, it died in the trenches of World War I”—Roger Ebert, The Great Movies — “This elegy for the death of the old European aristocracy is one of the true masterpieces of the screen”—Pauline Kael, The New Yorker — “A model of simplicity and grace, with emotional effects that move you when you least expect it, the kind of great film that only a master can pull off”—Kenneth Times, The Los Angeles Times — “The greatest World War I movie ever made”—Mike LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle —

Watched this last night but didn't finish it. This was another one that just couldn't hold my attention. Also I thought I could handle the animal killings but they made me feel sick. I've heard the ending is good but there's just too many other movies and TV shows I wanna see so I'd rather not spend my very precious and limited free time finishing this one.

Just finished this and to be completely honest I was... bored? It was good and depraved but the pacing was really slow and I lost interest about halfway through but stuck with it till the end anyway. Another controversial film I can cross off the list and never watch again.

Finally took the plunge and watched this last night and you know what? Completely unfazed. Hereditary messed me up more than this movie tbh. Maybe because it was so extreme that it was almost comical. Also I googled beforehand to find out what the bad parts were before watching so I could mentally prepare myself. I was most concerned about the uh "newborn" scene but no contact was shown on camera and the baby prop was really fake looking. The scene near the end made me feel sick and gross cause that was actually pretty realistic but alas, I am unscathed. Not something I wanna watch again anytime soon but I don't regret it, either. It was... an experience. Would NOT recommend this to anyone triggered by any kind of sexual abuse.

My favourite Kubrick...I think only because it was so hard so see in the UK when it was banned back then by Stanley himself...I had a Dutch VHS of it late 80s!
Blew my mind of course, bought it many times over the years but I think this one is a really nice edition...

Nicole’s recommendation for this month: the 1980 film, Babylon, directed by Franco Rosso. Previously unreleased out of fear that it would “inflame racial tensions,” 2019 saw the film’s first theatrical release in the USA.

Before the film Easy Rider, in 1967, Peter Fonda, Dennis Hopper, and Jack Nicholson, were involved in another production ― one that saw very limited release and was even banned in the U.K. for more than three decades. The film, simply called The Trip, was produced by MGM, written by Jack Nicholson and directed by Roger Corman, a prolific film director whose experimental approach pioneered alternative cinema in the U.S.. Most of the music in the film is performed by Mike Bloomfield and his band The Electric Flag, providing jazz-influenced improvisations together with a blues-rock background, adding to the disoriented feeling of the movie. Although Fonda rooted for another musical outfit to provide the music score, called The International Submarine Band, in the final cut they only appear as a band performing in a nightclub, with The Electric Flag score in the background. jacknicholson #thetrip #rogercorman #mikebloomfield #theelectricflag #psych #psychrock #easyrider #americanwave #americannewwave #americanwavefilm #americannewwavefilm #1967 #peterfonda #psychedelicfilm #experimentalfilm #bannedfilms #bannedfilm #ukfilms #americanfilminstitute #afi #jeanlucgodard #internationalsubmarineband #gramparsons #greviousangel #jaydeemaness

I was dragging my feet as I got closer to #criterioncollection Spine #17: Salo, or the 120 Days of Sodom. Just hearing that happy #enniomorricone music at the start reminded me how twisted this one is. I know it’s art with a message and an important film and all that shit, but damn if this isn’t a rough film to sit through. I feel safe saying I won’t watch this one ever again. I have said that before, though. 🤷‍♂️🤢 🎥 #ghettofilmschool #notforthefaintofheart #highartinlowplaces #moviecollector #saloorthe120daysofsodom #italiancinema #pierpaolopasolini #albuquerqueartist #artbarbarian #bannedfilms #artschooldropout #pretendagenda #nadarofthenorthvalley

“Catch, catch a horror taxi
I fell in love with my video nasty!” Tagged by @cinephile89 to show my dreaded Video Nasty collection! The rule is only movies that were on the DPP list and successfully prosecuted under the Obscure Publications Act. Of those 39 titles, I am unfortunately missing four. Here they are presented alphabetically by their UK titles. 
Missing titles are:
Axe (it’s in the mail, I swear!)
Cannibal Apocalypse (picking up the Kino release this summer)
Devil Hunter (88 Films or Severin, which would you choose?)
The Werewolf and the Yeti (no excuse, I love werewolves, bigfoot, and Paul Naschy. I let myself down)

I've tagged a few of my fellow collector nerds on here to share their Video Nasty collections! I'm sure I'm forgetting some of you, but anyone who wants to share is welcome! The only rule is to post titles from the official DPP Banned list only.
Here is my full collection, arranged alphabetically by their UK video titles. The only one I don't own yet is "Forest of Fear", aka "Toxic Zombies", although I've heard Massacre Video is releasing it at some point. And my DVD of "The Werewolf and the Yeti" is a bootleg I made, before Scream Factory released it in their Paul Naschy set.

I've tagged a few of my fellow collector nerds on here to share their Video Nasty collections! I'm sure I'm forgetting some of you, but anyone who wants to share is welcome! The only rule is to post titles from the official DPP Banned list only.
Here is my full collection, arranged alphabetically by their UK video titles. The only one I don't own yet is "Forest of Fear", aka "Toxic Zombies", although I've heard Massacre Video is releasing it at some point. And my DVD of "The Werewolf and the Yeti" is a bootleg I made, before Scream Factory released it in their Paul Naschy set.

“It's difficult to see Tod Browning's 66-year-old Freaks, even though it has the reputation of being one of the masterpieces of baroque cinema. It has been more written about than watched. Yet the tramps' last supper in Bunuel's Viridiana was said to have been inspired by it, and Max Ophuls, Fellini, Bergman and a host of horror merchants have inserted clips from Freaks into their films.
One of the reasons it is not often shown these days, even in repertory, is the feeling that it would be politically incorrect to do so. Freaks was banned in many countries (for 30 years in Britain) as too graphic a display of humans with the severest of physical disabilities.
Yet Browning, who ran away from school to join a circus where the 'freaks' performed, was concerned not to make his strange performers objects of horror or pity but to show them in such a matter-of-fact manner (without close-ups or dramatic music) that you could even watch Randian The Hindu Living Torso, without arms or legs, light his own cigar without assistance.
The problem is that for all his laudable insistence that these people are fully human, Browning had a freakish tale to tell. The film is based on Spurs, Clarence Robbins' short story, and was somewhat surprisingly commissioned by Irving Thalberg, the youthful president of MGM who had noted the success of Browning's Dracula and James Whale's Frankenstein at rival studio Universal. So the film had to mix horror, or at least grotesquerie, with an attempt at social comment, and it's the final sequences that cause the trouble. 
But despite doubts, Browning's film succeeds in being, as one critic has put it, 'moving, harsh, poetic and genuinely tender'. It was undoubtedly before its time and no one has equaled it. Browning never did, but then he never had the chance since Freaks was a flop and Thalberg regretted he hadn't listened to those at MGM who warned him against it.
Today, it looks like a damning antidote to the cult of physical perfection and an extraordinary tribute to the community of so-called freaks who made up its cast.”

In 1932, director Tod Browning, fresh from his success with DRACULA, was instructed by Irving Thalberg to top FRANKENSTEIN. He succeeded. The resulting film was considered so ghastly that it was banned in Britain for 30 years. It is the strangest film MGM ever released.

Fritz Langs Metropolis 
The ONLY movie you need to see.
My all time favorite. 
I had the pleasure of seeing the almost complete version at the Texas Theater with a live musical score- those who aren't aware of the film, the American Film Association destroyed and censored this film when it arrived to America and chopped it up, so no one could watch it complete ever again. 
Hollywood wrecked one of the greatest films in existence because they hated the message- that the mediator between the head and the hands must be the heart. 
I've seen 3 versions of the same film due to restorations as they've been released throughout the past 100 years as directors scrambled to peice together and complete the movie- and each time I've viewed it, it feels as if I've watched a different movie.

Kino has a great restoration of it, and it's about as complete as it will get- and it is AMAZING. Movies hardly ever make me cry, but this one will shatter your world with joy.

The banned Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark will be a Major Motion Picture and Basket Case just got restored by the Museum of Modern Art. 🤔 It’s a good time to be Controversial 35 years ago!

“Catch, catch a horror taxi
I fell in love with my video nasty!” Tagged by @cinephile89 to show my dreaded Video Nasty collection! The rule is only movies that were on the DPP list and successfully prosecuted under the Obscure Publications Act. Of those 39 titles, I am unfortunately missing four. Here they are presented alphabetically by their UK titles. 
Missing titles are:
Axe (it’s in the mail, I swear!)
Cannibal Apocalypse (picking up the Kino release this summer)
Devil Hunter (88 Films or Severin, which would you choose?)
The Werewolf and the Yeti (no excuse, I love werewolves, bigfoot, and Paul Naschy. I let myself down)

My favourite Kubrick...I think only because it was so hard so see in the UK when it was banned back then by Stanley himself...I had a Dutch VHS of it late 80s!
Blew my mind of course, bought it many times over the years but I think this one is a really nice edition...

Before the film Easy Rider, in 1967, Peter Fonda, Dennis Hopper, and Jack Nicholson, were involved in another production ― one that saw very limited release and was even banned in the U.K. for more than three decades. The film, simply called The Trip, was produced by MGM, written by Jack Nicholson and directed by Roger Corman, a prolific film director whose experimental approach pioneered alternative cinema in the U.S.. Most of the music in the film is performed by Mike Bloomfield and his band The Electric Flag, providing jazz-influenced improvisations together with a blues-rock background, adding to the disoriented feeling of the movie. Although Fonda rooted for another musical outfit to provide the music score, called The International Submarine Band, in the final cut they only appear as a band performing in a nightclub, with The Electric Flag score in the background. jacknicholson #thetrip #rogercorman #mikebloomfield #theelectricflag #psych #psychrock #easyrider #americanwave #americannewwave #americanwavefilm #americannewwavefilm #1967 #peterfonda #psychedelicfilm #experimentalfilm #bannedfilms #bannedfilm #ukfilms #americanfilminstitute #afi #jeanlucgodard #internationalsubmarineband #gramparsons #greviousangel #jaydeemaness
