Got it. Su-pwerb! An evening of Ben Dover's mainstream debut and Margate looking grimly beautiful awaits. I highly recommend it to everyone.

Thanks SMBH, you're a diamond.

Hello! Back again with a few requests:

The Haunted Cop Shop II (Jeffrey Lau, 1988)
In the Shadow of Fear (Giorgos Karypidis, 1988 - found a VHS rip of this but no subtitles)
The Pyramid (Gary Kent, 1975 or 1976)
Plan Delta (Bob Visser, 1989 - though the year for this has varied as well)
Brave (Richard Stanley, 1994 - yes the Marillion video)
The Long Night (Woodie King Jr., 1976)
Countdown at Kusini (aka Cool Red) (Ossie Davis, 1976)

And some newer ones:

Ema Nudar Umanu (Jonas Rusumalay Diaz, Thomas Henning, 2018)

Old Beast (Ziyang Zhou, 2017)
Fistful of Dirt (Sebastián Silva, 2018)
Night God (Adilkhan Yerzhanov, 2018)
Bamboo Dogs (Khavn, 2018)

A little fun for you all.



Identify the film.
Identify the man in the middle of the picture.

The film is Maeve (1981).
The man in the middle is Rob Gotobed.

The end credits list a track credited to Gotobed and Desmond Simmons (Perfect Avalanche). Simmons' first album was apparently produced by Gilbert and Lewis and features both Newman and Gotobed...

I've been searching for this for years as well!

I'm trying with no success to get a copy of Vlčí Bouda/Wolf's Hole (1986 or 1987) by Věra Chytilová (her of Daisies fame) with English subtitles (even shitty ones). It is on dailymotion in 5 parts but no subs at all. Any help will result in a virtual blowie!

Ah, just noticed that Old Beast only has subtitles in Mandarin, and I can't find English ones anywhere, but I'll get The Haunted Cop Shop II now.

There are quite a lot of old films on ok.ru. After a while it limits streaming quality if you don't register (I got round that with a proxy, but a free proxy also isn't very reliable.)

To register you need to give them a phone number. Anyone registered? Do they send spam texts to you the rest of your life? Is it a bad idea to register for any reason?

Only just seen this. I think I used youtube-dl to get Nine Days in One Year off there, mainly so I could play it through kodi easily. I didn't have to sign up or anything.

That's wonderful, thanks very much!

It's tricky with a lot of the festival-premiering films, they very rarely show up anywhere else, and it's a real shame. I guess it's part of a buy-out system and if no one buys them then they fade into obscurity? I have huge lists of films from festival programmes which I'm unlikely to ever find for that very reason.

I occasionally look at the list of movies you've seen at festivals and so on, and you're right about tons of them never getting released. Which is what you said. I JUST WANT TO BE IN THE CONVERSATION

Would love to find watchable versions of the following, so if someone with access to an invite site or the like would be good enough to have a gander for me at some point, and perhaps snag a DL link for one or more, I'd really appreciate it:

À la Folie/Six Days, Six Nights (Diane Kurys) [very foggy memories are persuading me that Anne Parillaud, Beatrice Dalle and Bernard Verley were all good in this]
Mina Tannenbaum (Martine Dugowson)
En Kille och en Tjej (Lasse Hallstrom)
Tva Killar och en Tjej/Happy We (Hallstrom)

I keep thinking that the top are crying out to be taken up by the likes of Criterion or Arrow, but haven't been made aware of that happening yet (cue someone arriving to wave an Arrow announcement in my direction).

Don't suppose anyone has the Australian comedy film Garbo from 1992?

Also after the Abel Ferrara documentaries Napoli Napoli Napoli, Searching for Padre Pio and Piazza Vittorio. They all seem to be on kg, but if anyone has them that would be handy (particularly the latter as the only rip there is over 12GB).

Been trying to find this film since seeing it in the early 90s, someone recently clued me to what it was as one scene stuck in my head because it's really creepy in a kids film. Crowds of cult member children chanting for their weird flying meatball God `Slime-o', shafting people down a giant hole that transforms them into giant floating glitter vomiting meatballs, and the way everyone seems really happy about everything despite the sheer horror of what's going on around them. The Great Land Of Small.

Napoli Napoli Napoli,
I should be able to get this for you. The other two, no luck so far I'm afraid.
