Anyone use this? Quality catalogue, lots that can’t always be pillaged via torrenting, plus weekly updates from that quiffed cunt Kermode who, to be fair, occasionally pulls a beauty out of the hat.
Spot on. That’s the intersection. Stacks of people seemed to have opted into Prime and Netflix during lockdown, where beforehand you’d do the 30 day trial, fuck it off just before the deadline and skip into the sunset of eternal capitalism. Maybe they introduced Covid? Hmmmmm.I'd really like BFI player but I do worry that I'm already paying for Netflix, iPlayer and Amazon Prime and not taking full advantage of any of them — so if I add BFI player to that pile it's just another thing I'm paying for and not using properly.
Monthly perhaps? Time excludes so much. Maybe put a list of watched, want to watch but haven’t and recommendations together. The list Craner put together is something I added to a word doc of ‘when your life is your own and hopefully before you die you’ll watch these’ flicks and documentaries. A few curveballs are good, films you maybe wouldn’t have watched but did because someone else chose it.we should do a film club, one a week. who's the biggest film nerd? they can start us off
Yeah Onibaba is great... also his other film about cat demons or something. Kuroneko it's called.I've watched since we've had it (not an exhaustive list)
Gate to Hell
The White Reindeer
Female Prisoner 701: Scorpion
... all of which are great in their own various ways. Onibaba is a must watch, if you've not seen it.
The threads here on Luton and Dover are supported by a lot of real life footage (8mm?) slices of British life on BFI. That was part of the reason for starting the thread. Seaside summers etc. Provincial life caught unguarded. Clips with ladies chilling who look like my Nan. Plenty of intriguingly free bits and bobs.Yeah Onibaba is great... also his other film about cat demons or something. Kuroneko it's called.
I think I subscribed to BFI but then found you had to pay extra for all the ones I actually wanted to see, is that right?
