I'd have no problem uploading/hosting the film for whomever. I just wanna know what Maiden's limitations are. If she's downloaded from one of us before, then it would seem I'd be free to choose whatever.

Yes. Dropbox would be perfect, but, seriously, don't worry about me. I'll get it somehow, I promise. :)

I figured as much. I've already got a list I'm gonna float by you guys to get a sense of what you would rather see so as to maximize participation.

Sorry I didn't get around to this last night. I'll have it up soon. Maybe we can make it a Sunday to Sunday thing? Or, well, Monday to Monday? I'd like to hear anyone else's favored film to watch if they have a preference. Since this is about trying to get as many people to participate as possible, I don't want to pick only something I'm really interested in.

Four years later, I'm watching the three Corrie Class Trip films I failed to see at the time. This was one of them, and honestly I hated it - I've seen The Death of Maria Malibran, too, and I didn't like its high-style drag baroque either, but if I had hopes that they'd be more bearable when married to a functioning narrative as opposed to a more experimental set of visual tableaux I was wrong. I know this is some people's idea of a nice aesthetic but I just found it grating, and it's worsened by the pointless chaos of the story, which wants to be Zulawski but isn't. The male leads are duds, the Euro-ness fucking trite (honestly, who writes most of these French movies of this vein) and whew, this might be the only bad Huppert performance I've seen - this kind of balls-to-the-wall melodrama is not what she's suited for at all, forcing her to eschew detail to focus on emotional sound and fury which clashes with her character-focused approach and honestly makes her seem increasingly amateur as the drama gets higher- and higher-pitched. Not my thing, but no one can say Schroeter doesn't try to make things interesting (he just fails at it) so he gets a point for effort.

I mean French philosophical film where characters say things like "the door is open, yet I can't pass through it" after pacing around a room in carefully choreographed formations over 5 minutes of long take, characters crying for no reason, small children popping around corners in dark houses holding balloons and shit metaphorically etc

Haha. But, where your hypothetical film is using philosophy and psychology, Malina is more like philosophy/psychology using film. It helps that I feel that Schroeter is terribly intelligent (I'm tantalized by the ideas, but don't understand them) and also that the images are rich and thought-provoking (not just baffling or pretentious).

But, I really came in here to say that you've reminded me how much I loved this "class trip" series. Sure, we (I) picked badly at times, but it was a great way to see new things and provoke discussion.

:heart:

Thank you! Yeah I miss it too. I'd be interested in doing another round but I don't know if there's enough traffic here these days to make it a goer.

Don't know how many people are needed for a class trip but if it matters any I'd be down. (mostly 'cause I haven't heard of a lot of these directors)

I'd totally do this if we can stir up some interest. I even have a film that might be good!

I've got a viewing project planned out through July but if there are enough posters supporting the idea a bit later in the year I'm totally down! We've all surely seen so much in the past four years I'm sure the choices will be verrry esoteric haha
