‘Joker’ Wins Golden Lion at Venice Film Festival, Roman Polanski Takes Runner-Up Prize • Milla Jovovich's 'Resident Evil' Stunt Double Sues Producers Over "Horrific" On-Set Injury

‘Joker’ Wins Golden Lion at Venice Film Festival, Roman Polanski Takes Runner-Up Prize • r/movies • u/FancyWonderBoy share

Can we admire that in 2019 alone we’ve had 2 people who’ve worked on the Hangover Sequels come out of nowhere and make critically acclaimed productions

Todd Phillips - Made the Hangover sequels & then Joker

Craig Mazin - Wrote Scary Movie sequels & Hangover sequels and then made Chernobyl

Edit: Forgot to say Polanski can go to hell

Milla Jovovich's 'Resident Evil' Stunt Double Sues Producers Over "Horrific" On-Set Injury • r/movies • u/FancyWonderBoy share

From point 3 of the filing:

The blow was so forceful that it twisted Plaintiff's shoulder blade backward, ripping-out five nerves connected into her spinal column at the root. Among other catastrophic injuries, which are too numerous to even summarize here, Plaintiff's left arm had to be amputated and cerebral spinal fluid seeped from an opening created by the nerves tearing from her spinal column.

I also remember it being reported that her face was degloved, not just lacerated.

I hope she gets everything she's suing for and then some.


If you're interested in how Olivia is doing now then I recommend checking out her Instagram (interestingly she recently changed her username from "OliviaStunts" to "OliviaTheBandit" - as in 'the one armed bandit' - which shows how she has had to adapt her life & career due to her horrific injuries).

She's had to endure a terrible period but it's good to see her getting stronger and stronger again, just a shame that her suitability for many future roles is probably limited now.

Hopefully she wins this case with ease.

Comparing "Suspiria" (2018), "The Seventh Seal", and "Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me": Existentialist metaphor in supernatural horror endings. r/TrueFilm • u/KubrickIsMyCopilot share

Supernatural horror has one of the widest ranges of artistic possibility of any film genre, allowing every form of overlap without compromising its core ideals - from comedic schlock to dreamlike suspense, satire, or even adventure.

Best 'uncanny' or psychologically uncomfortable movies or scenes in movies? r/TrueFilm • u/AsImaginedBy_ share

By uncanny I essentially mean the sort of subtle off-base emotional discomfort you feel while watching Eraserhead or The Shining, the mental place you're in while watching a David Firth or Robert Morgan short, even the vibe of Gwarek2 or The Caretaker's works.

I get this feeling through almost all of Killing of a Sacred Deer before anything actually weird happens.

It's just this build-up of uncomfortable (in a comedic way) scenes that just have this undertone of dread throughout that just keeps building and building and building. The worst part is that because the characters are so emotionless and robotic throughout the movie, it makes it all the more horrifying. Even though there is almost no emotion, there's still a very uncomfortable feeling you get from all of it.


Irréversible by Gaspar Nòe. The first 30 minutes has a frequency of 28z (almost inaudible) as background noise. Similar to the noise produced by an earthquake. In humans it causes nausea, sickness and vertigo. Many people walked out due to this when it was in theaters. Nòe added the frequency with the purpose of that reaction in mind. Not wanting to give away too much plot most of the movie is watched in backwards order and contains one of the hardest scenes I've ever had to watch. Please view with caution ⚠


Mulholland drive made me feel that way, after they flash a couple times to the horribly burned or scarred guy. That used to be one of my all time favorite movies. The exorcist, with the flashing demon faces, is another one that gets under my skin even before the really freaky stuff happens. And the whole movie Pi is just psychologically uncomfortable.

Has a film been able to overwhelm you despite not exactly fitting your idea of what good directing or visual storytelling should be? r/TrueFilm • u/Stoicpeace share

I was reading this Matt Zoller Sietz article asking film critics to write more about filmmaking in their reviews, asking them to at least include a line or two about an interesting shot, camera angle or a piece of editing and he is not exactly wrong in asking that as most reviews seem to focus too much on plot holes, ...
