I think this is my favorite dialogue-dominant scene in a film ... ever: https://youtu.be/U5418CiBukw .

But I'm a sucker for mobster stuff in general.

Huh, very interesting. I'm usually up on obscure '90s indies, but this one eluded me. Worth tracking down?

So you say you want to get better acquainted with the films of Taiwanese master Hou Hsiao-Hsien in June? Well here's my quick and dirty streaming guide that should provide a good overview of some of Hou's best works, though unfortunately some of his best movies like Goodbye South, Goodbye (1996) and Millennium Mambo (2001) still remain elusive whether streaming or on physical media.

In chronological order:

The Boys from Fengkuei (1983) - http://rarefilmm.com/2017/12/feng-gui-lai-de-ren-1983/
The Sandwich Man (1983) - Amazon Prime (note: this is an omnibus movie with a short film from Hou)
The Time to Live and the Time to Die (1985) - Amazon Prime
Dust in the Wind (1986) - Amazon Prime
The Daughter of the Nile (1987) - Kanopy
City of Sadness (1989) - http://rarefilmm.com/2019/09/beiqing-chengshi-1989/
The Puppetmaster (1993) - http://rarefilmm.com/2018/08/xi-meng-ren-sheng-1993/
Flowers of Shanghai (1998) - http://rarefilmm.com/2018/03/hai-shang-hua-1998/
Flight of the Red Balloon (2007) - Hulu
The Assassin (2015) - Amazon Prime and Tubi (with ads)

Happy Hou-ing in June!

Of particular interest/appeal: the scenes in the woods, where "The Kid" lives and has parked his RV.

There is a wonderful documentary from Neon, now streaming on Hulu, titled The Painter and the Thief. It's about an artist who confronts the thief who stole her paintings from an art gallery. She befriends him and he becomes the subject of some of her paintings.

Sadly some DMCA narcs went after Rare-Filmm so the Hou flicks there are no longer available to stream. If/when the site comes back online, I'll re-up the post.

Anyway, always download, always buy physical media, and pirating of out of circulation content is good.

If anyone is feeling frustrated watching what's happening in Minnesota, you can help by donating to the Minnesota Freedom Fund, which helps cover bail and legal fees for protestors who are arrested, assaulted by police, etc.: https://minnesotafreedomfund.org/donate

And if you want to remain angry, may I suggest Peter Watkins' scathing, brutal, timeless satire of the American carceral state, Punishment Park (1971), which is streaming on YouTube: https://youtube.com/watch?v=4bRMMdaQ790

The Passenger (1975) - filling in an Antioni gap, this amazing film is leaving Criterion Channel on 5/31 at midnight PST. Simply amazing. Jack Nicholson and the late, great, too often misused Maria Schneider both do career best quality work here.

If you care about rare, out of print, hard to find movies, DCMA n*rcs trying to shutdown RareFilmm is a (bleep) travesty.

I don't know how long this will be up, but here's a website running a streaming series on late-Soviet dystopian SciFi with a familiar title in Tarkovsky's Stalker (one of the greatest movies of all time), and three difficult movies to track down at all let alone in crisp HD, On the Silver Globe, O-bi, O-ba, The End of Civilization, and Letters from a Dead Man.

Check it out: ExMilitary

Some streaming odds and ends:

Amazon Prime

In light of recent events, Warner Bros. has made Just Mercy (2019) free to rent on multiple digital platforms including iTunes and Amazon Prime.

The well-reviewed historical SciFi flick The Vast of Night (2020) was recently released and is available to stream at no additional cost for Prime members.

Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter...and Spring Again (2003), the gentle, contemplative romance between a young monk and a woman from South Korean provocateur and credibly accused rapist Kim Ki-duk, is both hard to track down and very much worth watching before it disappears into the streaming ether again.

Criterion

In addition to a number of cool additions from queer filmmakers for Pride Month, including an almost exhaustive collection of Chantal Akerman's ouevre and three hard-to-find flicks from Gregg Araki, the Channel is also debuting Bonello's Zombi Child (2019) and the highly lauded Berliniale Golden Bear winner Synonymes (2019), which had their American theatrical runs cut short due to coronavirus.

Hulu

Josephine Decker's follow-up to the excellent Madeline's Madeline is Shirley about influential American horror novelist Shirley Jackson starring Elisabeth Moss in the titular role along with Michael Stuhlbarg. One of the most critically lauded films of 2020 so far.

Shudder

The entire Female Prisoner #701 series hit Shudder on June 1st and is an awesome, influential, and beautifully made cult favorite.

Virtual Screenings

Two newly released older movies will be available to rent on June 5th through virtual cinemas where you can help support local indie theaters near you and catch a couple heretofore undistributed flicks from underrated directors.

Hong Sang-soo's 2016 film Yourself and Yours, which unfairly got lost in the shuffle of his creative explosion from 2014-2018, will be streaming through Cinema Guild's virtual cinema initiative. More info here: http://www.cinemaguild.com/theatrical/yourselfandyours.html

Abel Ferrara's personal character study, Tommaso (2019), starring Willem Dafoe as a recovering addict who moves to Italy and finds love with a younger woman is streaming courtesy of KinoLorber. More info here: https://www.kinolorber.com/film/view/id/3896

This is not a drill: Charles Burnett's groundbreaking classic Killer of Sheep is now available to stream online: https://milestone.vhx.tv/videos/killer-of-sheep-1

I've wanted to see it for years. The reputation is monumental. Let's all enjoy.
