  • Dark Knight, Django Unchained, and Into the Spiderverse

  • Little correction .... Batman and his lie heavily relied on keeping the criminals in jail. The dent act would be completely smashed by dent becoming the villain.... Setting them free. Sure belief was the explanation but the movie tells us early on that it relies on dent being the white knight of Gotham - uncorrupted

  • Hmmm. I respect the subjective impact these fils they have had on you but as films I can’t claim that the Dark night, spring breakers and even the Matrix are anything impressive. The fact that they introduced you to philosophy is cool but I don’t find regurgitating philosophy to be a particularly impressive fete. I much prefer films that either force you into subjectivity, portray new philosophical ideas, force you into deep emotions you didn’t know were there, are revolutionary or just slap you in the face with their societal commentary.

  • 1. Saving Private Ryan, because it was the very first time I understood violence was NOT sexy; 2. Inception, because it was the only movie I watched twice in a row, I was so blown away by the concepts I just hit that Play button as fast as I could; 3. The Spanish Residence, because it showed what would end up being my life for four years. It was a window to the future.

  • You guys should certainly share more intimate videos like this, I was shocked to know I shared your first two picks, my third might be another amazing philosophical discourse of a film that pits together objectivity Vs. subjectivity, Equilibrium (2005). Please expand this list with runners up and while I'm here will recommend a beatifully whimsical and profound french film that I personally love, "La belle verte" (1996). Thanks again.

  • Your Leviathan t-shirt gives it away. You summed up two of my life-changing movies (same age), but I got different a subtext in both movies. The matrix doesn't just explain how power structures work, it explains evolution. The dark Knight doesn't just tell the Hobbesian Realistic story, it goes further. It explains the paradox of power. Thus also the story of Kantian Idealism.

  • As an (early) Gen X'er, it makes me a bit sad to think of how graphically violent and dystopian the movies that have become foundational for later generations have tended. The gentle beauty of humanity I grew up watching in films by Fellini, Woody Allen, Robert Altman, or the best Scandinavian auteurs was seemingly buried alive. Yes, I grew up seeing 'Apocalypse Now' and 'Dr. Strangelove' as well, but the tone of those seems so distinct compared to the present- more hopeful, less resigned. I hope we haven't lost even the possibility of an un-ironic heroism, or of a faith that doesn't need to accept its own failure.

    Scott MartinScott MartinIl y a 5 mois
  • Sorry bud, but these have to be the most pretentious (or cliched) film school hipster choices possible... I think you underestimate how much these films mean to you just because you saw them in your formative years, not anything inherently deep in them.

  • its always a good thing that young people find the stuff that gives them perspective of a bigger picture. In the long runt though Ive started to see a tragic pattern. its mostly the same stories dressed up with modern narratives, making people realizing the same stuff over and over without any real evolution of thought process .

  • Like an idiot, I rented "Spring Breakers" because this guy praised it. Probably should've checked out its 38% rotten tomato audience approval score before wasting my time and my money. If you enjoy listening to vapid and repetitive conversations between teenage girls, and endless filler footage of people partying and drinking while absolutely NOTHING happens plot-wise this is your movie. I got 30 minutes into this piece of shit and turned it off. This guy's views on this film is like someone who's smoked a ton of weed and then wants to tell you about how "deep" and interesting Scooby Doo cartoons are if you're willing to "just look a bit deeper, man."

  • Glad you mentioned the ending of The Dark Knight because it's never talked about and it's really interesting. The noble lie aspect is a bit hard to square given the existence of The Dark Knight Rises. But what I love is Bruce choosing not to be the hero, at least in the classic sense. A lot of people like to point out how messed up it is that this rich guy takes out his anger on low level criminals. But this version of Bruce/Batman isn't really like that. He's channeling his anger at the injustice of the world into inspiring change. He could easily have Gordon tell the truth about Dent and just keep being Batman as the fallout occurs. Indeed, as we see in Rises, a big part of him craves that need to be Batman, or at least to be actively helping people (he goes into reclusion when he learns the reactor can be weaponized, not immediately after The Dark Knight). But in that moment at the end of TDK he thinks it's in the city's best interest to not be the hero, to do the unselfish thing. And really that's what being a hero should be about. Not just you punching bad guys. But you doing what is necessary to help people.

  • "Knowest Thou not that, but a few centuries hence, and the whole of mankind will have proclaimed in its wisdom and through its mouthpiece, Science, that there is no more crime, hence no more sin on earth, but only hungry people? "Feed us first and then command us to be virtuous!"... Eight hundred years now since we accepted from him the gift rejected by Thee with indignation; that last gift which he offered Thee from the high mountain when, showing all the kingdoms of the world and the glory of them, he saith unto Thee: "All these things will I give Thee, if Thou will fall down and worship me!" We took Rome from him and the glaive of Caesar, and declared ourselves alone the kings of this earth, its sole kings, though our work is not yet fully accomplished. But who is to blame for it? Our work is but in its incipient stage, but it is nevertheless started. We may have long to wait until its culmination, and mankind have to suffer much, but we shall reach the goal some day, and become sole Caesars, and then will be the time to think of universal happiness for men."

  • This list is very lame, it is basically a guide of easy literature and shalow philosophy for dummies. This guy gets his brains blown off by the fact that movies sometimes reference (very superficialy) some existencial constructs and questions that every educated teenager will find by himself with or without such movies, even without the books that captured those ideas.

  • The need for something external like a God to believe in hope and do the morally right thing never seemed like a honest motivation to do those things. Instead I feel we should do these things simply because just as you hurt and feel love - so does everyone else. Why isn't striving not to cause pain and to share love enough - and The reason to do it. Doesn't seem complicated.

Without having seen the latter, his description straight up reminded me of the former. Skins UK had a pretty profound impact on me in terms of decadence, excess, and 21st century adolescence and mental illness/development..

  • Values and sincerity are built into us. All of us hate suffering and most of us hate seeing others suffer. Valuing the life and happiness of others is natural. Now, we all have moments in which we don’t and dropping into insincerity and post modern detachment is okay as long as that’s not hour default. We all need a break when the weight of the world is on us.

  • So, 30 years since the Matrix and nothing's changed. Doesn't that tell you something? As you are a philosopher, and your favourite author is Dostoevsky, it's pretty clear that Human nature doesn't really want to evolve itself. following movies and seeing the stories they tell is the same thing. You picked a vocation where movies don't want to solve the issue otherwise they think they have no story to tell. so even with your discussing them and their floors, your material is something that needs to be inherently flawed so people flock to it because they're so perpetually disempowered. so have you thought of what would evolve Human nature out of its preferred demise? Let's face it, money is been a massive issue for any type of any substantial change to take effect. How we even fell for a currency that has a cost is beyond my comprehension. That people want to put a price on their value already diminishes what it could be. So why not address why we think we have to keep disempowering humanity to tell stories? what are we afraid of to tell stories that are perpetually empowering? Why do we want to perpetuate fear? Do we think there's no life after not being controlled by it? I'd like you to answer this. As for my favourite films, it would be Mosquito Coast, Dead Poets Society, and The Barefoot Contessa.
