Bad sound at Dragon Tattoo

I tried to see Girl With the Dragon Tattoo today, but ran into sound problems on two different screens at the same theater. The symptoms were fairly specific, and I was curious if anyone familiar with cinema sound systems could tell me what the problem was. [more inside]

The Thing One, The Thing Two

The discussion on "The Thing" from here was interesting, and I finally managed to watch the 2011 "The Thing 0" movie. It was not as bad as a feared, and I liked how it connected well with Carpenters version. Any other connections? SPOILERS INSIDE obviously, you should have watched both 1982 and 2011 movies.

Looking for a Bergman interview.

I'm looking for an Ingmar Bergman interview (should be available online) in which he makes an analogy between the depiction of a character in film and a solo partita by Bach. All else I remember is that it was probably shot in the 50s or 60s in b/w and that the person asking questions was a Swedish critic of some sort.

Help me find movies similar to this...

I am looking for movies that contain a lot of self talk. I don't know what kind of movies these are called and I don't recall the movie that I have seen that was like that. But in brief, the story is mostly about the main character how they view the world around them, they talk to themselves a lot and comment on the things that they see, the movie is slow paced, but deep, with the character sometimes having episodes of dissociation from reality, like surreal experiences, flash backs, and a lot of day dreaming. Any clues, suggestions?

Movies where the dialogue is the action?

I just watched the movie Glengarry Glen Ross. What I especially enjoyed was how it focused on tight, intense dialogue as opposed to action - whilst managing to remain a compelling, well-paced movie. I love 12 Angry Men for the same reason. With that in mind, I'm looking for recommendations in a similar vein. Compelling, dialogue-driven, almost play-like movies? It does't matter if it's a well-known or obvious choice - I know jack about movies and haven't seen that many.

What's the name and origin of the "long Noooooo" shot in film?

Is there a name, please, for the now-clich├ęd and much-satirized film shot in which the camera pulls rapidly out of a close-up, often moving back and up, while the subject, having just had bad news or seen something dreadful, goes "noooooooooo" rather a lot? We are meant to gather that they are somewhat alone, and not at all happy. Where/when did this shot originate? [more inside]

Seen any good movies lately?

2 part question: 1. I used to be a member of a movie site which made recommendations based on your likes and your friends likes and movies of a similar genre, but I've forgotten what it was called. Do you know of a site like that? Maybe I can recover my membership if I can find it again! 2. Can you recommend a social network for the cinema? Preferably one with similar characteristics to the one i used to know, with a good number of European & British, as well as US, content & users.

The role of the director in early french cinema

What did early (1900-1920) french film directors actually do? I get the sense from my research that early film directors in France were more like what one associates with producers nowadays. The "director" chose the script, chose the actors and the budget, and then left the execution to a cameraman who basically filmed everything as if he were recording live theater. This explains how someone like Louis Feuillade could "direct" hundreds of films each year. Is this assumption correct? [more inside]
