anonymous asked:

Do u also watch stuff like citizen kane, casablanca etc? What do u think of these classics? Any suggestions?

They are incredibly important to modern age cinema, especially Citizen Kane, that in some way changed the perception of the audience that was deeply present on the Italian neo realism represented by heavyweights, such as Visconti and Antonioni.

Casablanca on the other hand is the representation of the Hollywood Golden Age, that introduced to techniques such as the close ups, the establishing shots, the cut ins, the inserts etc…

I would recommend you The Last Picture Show (1971); 12 Angry Men (1957); It’s a Wonderful Life (1946); Dial M for Murder (1954) and Belíssima (1951)

Thank you for the question!

Watched Hands Over the City with a friend who’s really into urban planning. It was funny because right after we talked about machine politics a character in the movie made a comment about how the city was like a machine… It’s an interesting movie about some extremely corrupt politicking in urban planning in Naples, Italy. It made me want to organize a urbanism movie marathon; PlaytimeTrafficHands Over the City, and Metropolis would be a good lineup.
