Our friends over at Film Movement have been bringing you some diverse and interesting films over the years. We have certainly told you about many during that time. Now they have launched a new way to deliver these films directly to their fans. Yes, this site is called Upcomingdiscs, and we generally deal with home video releases that you pop into your trusty player and enjoy. Film Movement has been a part of those DVD releases. But we don’t just limit ourselves to discs. We bring you the latest films direct from the local multi-plex and even talk about some of the equipment to make your experience the best it can be. We don’t often talk about streaming services, because they are generally bringing you the same kind of mass-consumption content. Let me introduce you to Film Movement Plus. These aren’t the kinds of things you’re likely to find anywhere else. With a library of 250 critically acclaimed independent films, they are growing with each month.
To help celebrate this new service, they have generously offered us some free subscriptions to give away while we spotlight some of the best as they are introduced to the members of Film Movement Plus. With each announcement we’re going to give away a few of those free subscriptions to help you get started.
The first film we want to call to your attention is The Great Silence. It premiers on the service 12/14/2018.
When it comes to the Italian western, AKA the spaghetti western, the first director who comes to mind is Sergio Leone (The Good The Bad And The Ugly); and then there is Sergio Corbucci. While Leone was blazing a successful career, Corbucci first came onto the scene with his film Django. The film was dirty, violent, and mean. For those who are only familiar with the Quentin Tarantino version of Django, well, you’ll definitely see the films are drastically different aside from them both being revenge films. Much later on, Corbucci got the chance to follow up his first big hit with another western, The Great Silence. I had gotten to see this dark western before, though it was in the form of a bootleg copy. There was a lot of grain, and the ending attached to the film was radically different from the one Corbucci had intended. Film Movement Classics has done an amazing job at cleaning this title up and giving it a new 2K restoration. As for the film itself, saddle up, because this is something many have not seen before.
