are those really memes though
Sicario is one of the better thrillers of the century
thanks for reminding me this exists based anon, gonna watch it tonight
well memed my friend
what about them makes them memes outside of the fact that they're popular
it's not a meme if they have legitimate qualities that justify their popularity
yeah, his first with digital animation. looks gorgeous too
so what you're saying is that any movie that attains any level of success is a meme
>yeah, his first with digital animation. looks gorgeous too
FUCKING JUDAS SELLOUT REEEEEEE
glad to hear he'll be able to make films more frequently now, hope he keeps the quality up :D
Don Hertzfeldt is fedoracore garbage. Haven't seen his new short, but let me guess, it's mawkishly drawn pathetic winings of a beta nu-male, with a touch of a manic pixie dream girl?
If you want great modern "edgy" animation, watch the works of David O'Reilly. Start with "The External World" and "RGB XYZ".
They are only quality films if you have taken a passing interest in this medium recently and have no idea of its possibilities because again you have no active interest in the art form you're just coddled by films which offer "insight" to the cartel world or the philosophical nature of artificial intelligence each of which any thinking man could guess on the way to the theater.
Neither are revealing, only affirming of cliche thought. This makes them perfectly meme. I suggest that people who find Sicario or Ex Machina anything beyond meme cinema to read a damn book or as they say watch more films.
you should probably stop saying the word "meme" so much if you want to ever be taken seriously. as >>64543389 said, it's so flexibly defined as to be near meaningless.
>i don't need to watch this movie to criticize it
pls stop anon, i'm so tired...
it's pretty closely tied with the Assassin. i like the poster for World of Tomorrow better, though, so i used it to start the thread.
>Midnight in Paris
yes i do
btw, quickly perusing a review shows that I'm 100% correct in my estimation:
>As ever, the filmmaker's pet theme is China's ever-rapid turn toward capitalism, using shifts in technology and business to reflect changes in social values. The promise of this new age is embodied in the film's opening shot, of a group of people dancing wildly to the Pet Shop Boys' “Go West”
fair enough i guess
still zhangke is a good enough filmmaker that i think i can handle some pro-communist themes for the sake of his craft
A Touch of Sin was pretty incredible
>Sicario is one of the better thrillers of the century
the film is called "Victoria"
Thanks for validating the notion that anyone who uses the word "meme" is a holier-than-thou idiot. Defining quality films by whether or not they offer you any personal insight must mean you are pretty miserable.

Very similar to the Rouge Nation poster
