Noch bevor es, man hört ihn schon kommen, zum dreissigsten Mal Deutscher Herbst
wird, jährt sich zum neunten Mal das Erscheinen der Sondernummer der Cahiers du
cinéma zu 30 Jahren Mai 68, in der einer Reihe von Filmemachern und Kritikern
eine Reihe von Fragen aufgegeben wurden, deren interessanteste, ob es nämlich
einen Film gebe, in dem der Mai 68, so paradox das auch wäre, aufgehoben sei,
ungefähr die Hälfte der Befragten mit dem Lob eines Godardfilms beantworteten,
den nun wirklich, denn an den Titel hätte sich jeder erinnern können, noch
niemand je gesehen hatte - so dass bloss die Zeitschrift in Erinnerung blieb.
Internet sei Dank ist es uns mittlerweile gelungen, den Film zu beschaffen, und
so können wir am Sonntag zu einem Doppelsuperlativ, seltenster Godardfilm und
bester Film über den Mai 68, einladen, womit zugleich unsere Reihe "Besonders
populäre und besonders unpopuläre Klassiker des politischen Propagandafilms" aus
Saison Eins fortgesetzt wäre, wenn auch, siehe unten, am unpopulären Pol dieser
Skala, weswegen wir zum bloss beim Brennen ein Bier trinken genauso herzlich
einladen wie zum endlich in gross, in laut, in voller Länge, in Gesellschaft, in
Englisch, in Französisch und in Farbe einen Film wie all die anderen sehen.
Den einzigen Film, der sonst noch mehrfach in den Cahiers genannt wurde, zeigen
wir, als Bonus-Track zum Dictionary of War, am folgenden Sonntag. Und unseren
beiden Lieblingswebsites der Woche, denn es kommt selten genug vor, dass wir
welche haben, geschweige denn gleichzeitig zwei, gelten die Hinweise ganz unten.
This is my fresh rip of one of the rarest of Godard films, Un Film Comme Les
Autres, from the Living Archieves VHS. Let me warn beforehand, this film is
absolutely not everybody's cup of coffee. There are a lot of legends surrounding
this film. The first quote below is from imdb while the second one is from Roud,
and the third one is from Elshaw. I suggest everybody to read them carefully and
then decide whether to get this or not. With its simultaneous French and English
narration and lack of subtitles, this is the single Godard film i couldn't watch
till the end; if you can understand English and French clearly, and have a
genuine interest in Marxist politics and the problems of the student and workers
movements during May riots, and if you are accustomed to watching experimental
cinema, this film is surely for you, unfortunately i don't qualify.
When the film was sent to New York City's Lincoln Center for its premiere,
co-director Jean-Luc Godard included a note in the film canisters instructing
the projectionist to "flip a coin" to determine in which order the film's two
reels would be shown.
Legend has it that there is only one shot in the whole two-hour film, but this
is not true. Nor is it true that the camera never moves; there are a few lateral
pans now and then... Legend again has it that the whole film consists of views
of tall grass, while on the soundtrack one can hear the discussion of the people
hidden by the grass; again, this is not quite true, for we often see the bodies
of the group, the man's polka-dot shirt, a girl's hair, her red and green
peppermint-striped blouse, and once in a while we even see a face or two. This,
reportedly, was pure accident. Legend again has it that Godard was not there
during much of the shooting and so was unable to assure that none of the faces
would be seen. The truth of this I have not been able to establish.
Coming just one month after the controversial premiere of One Plus One in
London, the premiere of Un Film Comme Les Autres in New York was perhaps the
most controversial of Godard's films in its reception by the public in 1968. The
English audio translation of the dialogue for the film was synchronised with the
French dialogue, creating a confusing melange of audio that rendered both
languages indecipherable. At several stages during the premiere, the audience
reacted with outbursts including demands for their money back. The
representative for the film's U.S. distributors (Leacock-Pennebaker) was David
McMillan, who defended the version of the screened film, and apparently
attempted to soothe the audience. Possibly sensing a near riot, the Philharmonic
Hall house manager attempted to tell the audience that refunds would in all
likelihood be given, but McMillan countered by threatening the house manager
with legal action if admission charges were refunded. McMillan's compromise was
to promise the patrons admittance to a subsequent screening that would include
subtitling if they kept their ticket stubs. What began as an audience of one
thousand expectant patrons at the beginning of the screening, barely totalled
one hundred after an exodus en masse at the end of the first reel.

Welcome to OscarTorrents.
The Future of the Oscars, Today.
OscarTorrents is the Oscars as it should be -- everyone can download the year's
nominations using the popular BitTorrent service, watch the movies, then use our
rating system to choose their favourites. Why restrict the voting to a few
bought-off jurors when the whole world can have their say?
To download any film up for an Oscar this year, you'll need three things: an
internet connection, a computer, and a BitTorrent client. The official
Bittorrent client is here <1>, or Azureus, a larger but more feature-laden
client, is here <2>. Install your software, then click on any of the download
links next to the films. There's a guide to downloading with BitTorrent here
<3>. Let us know if there seems to be anything wrong with a particular Torrent
and we'll try to fix it.
Once you've watched a film, you can vote on it -- but please, do watch before
you vote! On Oscars night, we'll post your results right along with the
'official' ones. Of course this is the way it should be done now that movie
distribution is almost free. Hollywoodland might not like it, but some people
always have to be dragged kicking and screaming into the future.
You might notice that a few little torrents are missing here and there.
Sometimes we had to post YouTube versions, and one or two movies we still
haven't been able to find (the list is here <4>). If you can help with a good
version of the movies we're missing, or a better version of ones we already
found -- mail us.
If the Oscars nominations don't interest you much (though we think this was a
great year for movies and there's some good films to watch here) hop on over to
The Torrent Review <5>. It's like Digg for Torrents: you can read reviews about
interesting movies that have recently been shared on all sorts of trackers, rate
and comment others' reviews, or add your own.
To those worried about downloading in case they get sued: by our calculations,
your chances of getting nailed are way less than your chances of winning the
lottery. Don't think twice about it.
To all intellectual property landlords: we are aware that OscarTorrents might
annoy you -- but contain your righteous indignation for a while, and think:
we're only linking to torrents that already exist. Face it: your membrane has
burst, and it wasn't us who burst it. Your precious bodily fluids are escaping.
You haven't beaten us, so why not join us? Think of a new business model that
doesn't involve overpriced pieces of plastic and skanky cinemas hawking cheap
carbohydrates while relying on $6/hr projectionists who can't keep a film in
focus -- not to mention insulting your audiences by (to pick a few examples)
surveilling us with nightvision glasses, searching bags, 30 minutes of
commercials and bombarding us with ridiculous anti-piracy propaganda <6>. Take a
look at yourselves. Is it really any wonder we're winning?
