Survivors (1975)
NOGARD47 3 points 8 months ago.

great classic 70s tv series , did the 70s predict our POSSIBLE future ?

Saucer-People 4 points 7 hours ago.

Forget the 2008 remake, the grim dystopian societal breakdown of the original is where it’s at and with the current climate like it is, it also becomes a handy tips guide to what we can expect when the shit hits the fan (luckily without a John Waters scratch ‘n’ sniff movie card) as NOGARD47 points out.

Between the original Survivors series, The Changes TV series, the lesser known Noah’s Castle TV series and the incredibly underrated UK film ‘No Blade Of Grass’ along with shows like Doomwatch and Quatermass 1979 - all these shows pretty much primed many of us growing up in the 70s for an apocalyptic future British style.
I know when the first lockdown occurred and I went into my local Tescos and witnessed the panic buying and empty shelves I instantly flashed back to all those 7Os TV apocalyptica.
Though this screws up the neat seventies chronology as it was made in 1983, the daddy of them all for me is the nuclear post apocalypse drama Threads, partly because I only lived about 12 miles outside Sheffield where the action took place and partly because the rat on a stick outdoor takeaway scene has always been my subsequent yardstick of “well, things aren’t quite that bad yet”.

Buried in the Backyard (2018) S3 E13
Killer in Question (2020)
Saucer-People 2 points 1 day ago*.

This has been a really good true crime documentary series so far. Each episode focuses on a specific case and asks whether justice has been served and in doing so leaves it to the viewer to answer the question or rather ponder if an answer is possible.
I think the value of documentaries like these lies in their ability to remind us that the rush to judgement seen in episode 2 (which we all engage in at differing levels) can have profound consequences that last a lifetime (as episode 4 shows us).

Crime Beat (2020) S2 E7
Saucer-People 0 points 5 days ago. (Contains Spoilers)

There has been some shocking miscarriage of justice cases covered by Crime Beat but this is the only one that left me literally shouting WTF? as I heard the verdict. A frenzied rage filled attack with 32 of the 37 stab wounds inflicted in the back of the victim, and a murderer without a scratch on him who claims self-defence and gets 7 years for taking the life of a beloved teacher - if this was a work of fiction it would have been rejected as too unbelievable.

The 5,000 Fingers of Dr. T. (1953)
Saucer-People 5 points 6 days ago.

One of the essential cult/underground/bizarre films of the 195Os - watch it along with the 1964 ‘7 Faces of Dr.Lao’ for added high strangeness!

Halloween Is Grinch Night (TV Short 1977) (1977)
Saucer-People 2 points 7 days ago.

Thanks uploader for the vintage Grinch, always great to see a new animation up and be able to escape to Dr.Seuss Land for 25 minutes!

The Sorrow and the Pity (1971)
Saucer-People 9 points 8 days ago.

While the words ‘fascism’ ‘anti-fascist’ and ‘nazi’ has become very popular in the political lexicon of 2020, the reality of living under the Third Reich is only dimly understood and out of the many post WWII documentaries, The Sorrow and the Pity is perhaps one of the few that get really close to understanding what it is to experience real fascism.
Marcel Ophüls is an incredible director and I highly recommend his film Hotel Terminus which continues his exploration of the Nazi war criminal Klaus Barbie, and the support given to him by American military intelligence to evade trial at Nuremberg and the further support given to him by the CIA in Latin America under the guise of ‘anti-communism’.

30 for 30: ‘The Life and Trials of Oscar Pistorius' (2020)
Saucer-People 1 points 10 days ago.

This is actually a UK BBC Storyville documentary series but I believe it was broadcast before the BBC aired it here in the UK on November 7th.
I found the four part documentary very interesting as I knew little about his background and I think the makers did a really good job highlighting the wider cultural and political issues in South Africa around his trial.
The series has been criticised for not focusing enough on the victim Reeva Steenkamp and given it is a story told over multiple episodes, I do agree that more could have done to tell her life story, but it’s better than a lot other true crime shows where the victim is little more than a footnote in the narrative.

A Lie to Die For (2019)
Saucer-People 1 points 11 days ago.

True crime fans, especially those interested in the sociopathic dark side of human nature should definitely check out this series - each episode focuses on a deception that results in murder and I have to say, each story is very well done with a minimum of reenactment and instead focuses on the elaborate lies and betrayals that the victim was subject to through interviews with friends, families and investigators.
Some of the stories will leave you shaking your head in disgust and amazement at the levels of deception and brutality the victims experienced.

Crime Beat (2020) S2 E5
Saucer-People 0 points 12 days ago. (Contains Spoilers)

This is another ‘Mr Big’ undercover sting operation where the target is asked by a ‘crime boss’ to join his operation and make any criminal charges they may be facing disappear. In previous cases I’ve seen in documentaries, I’ve found the entire operation problematic, as some of the cases and subsequent convictions have relied exclusively on the confession, but in this case it was done right with evidential corroboration beyond just the disclosure to the undercover operative.
My heart goes out obviously to the family and friends of the murder victim but also to the main detective interviewed who endured the autopsy and the deep psychological wounds caused by the case.

A Lie to Die For (2019) S1 E12
Saucer-People 0 points 12 days ago*. (Contains Spoilers)

It’s incredible how psychopathic/sociopathic personalities are able to bring out the most empathic and forgiving aspects of ourselves as well as completely betray our trust. This is a convicted bankrobber who fools the psychiatric and judicial system, gets a incredibly light sentence, is out in a year, all the while getting the complete and unconditional support of his family.
He pays all this back by becoming a family annihilator.
It’s said around 4% of the population is sociopathic, so statistically you know one either at work, school or they currently sit next to you while you watch this and the only reason they do not kill or destroy the lives around them seems predicated on whether their needs and desires are being met at any given time.

Faces of Death II (1981)
Saucer-People 2 points 13 days ago.

The controversy around the Faces of Death series concerning faked footage is strange as I’d say around 90% of the film comes from news broadcasts with the odd training film thrown in for good measure.
Of course the sight of real dead bodies and human injuries is disturbing and so it should be - that’s why after the Vietnam War, the US military ensured no journalists would ever again get access to the theatre of war without their permission and subject to censorship because the actual reality of war beamed into American homes was considered a factor in the war’s opposition.
Faces of Death 2 is gory but its also a window into a world we seldom see plus occasionally it is just bizarre and strange and it has to be the only documentary that segues from European avalanches to the perils of American boxing!

Dateline: Secrets Uncovered (2017) S2020 E44
Saucer-People 0 points 13 days ago. (Contains Spoilers)

Interesting Dateline episode that focuses on the Vancouver Unsolved Homicides Unit and their ‘Mr. Big’ undercover sting operations - I am pretty sure this particular modus operandi no longer exists as it is so problematic despite getting numerous convictions.
There is a 2010 book about it called ‘Mr Big:Exposing Undercover Investigations in Canada’ by Joan Brockman and Kouri Keenan (who is interviewed in this programme) which looks interesting.

Belladonna of Sadness (1973)
Saucer-People 4 points 14 days ago.

Some kind souls of impeccable taste are posting a collection of the best Japanese films around and with Belladonna of Sadness, not only do you get one seriously tripped out, exquisitely rendered and erotic full-length seventies animations imaginable but the soundtrack, reissued a few years ago on the Finders Keepers label, is something special indeed as well.

Prometheus Bound (1930)
nikkimckelvy 0 points 1 year ago.

This is not the 1930’s version of Prometheus Bound, but a much later animated version. I think it’s the 2004 version.

Saucer-People 0 points 15 days ago.

Just reported the link for been the wrong video.

Outlaw Comic: The Censoring of Bill Hicks (2003)
Saucer-People 3 points 15 days ago.

We could really have done with Bill Hicks in 2020, he would have been in his element - having said that, if he’d started his career in the last ten years or so he’d have probably got cancelled before his star rose and certainly would have not got on the mainstream networks like the BBC and would have definitely been banned from social media!

Mansfield 66/67 (2017)
somniloquist 3 points 6 months ago*. (Contains Spoilers)

This one is smacks of “final project in art school.” Complete with friends called in from the drama department and some silly dance sequences.
Anton LeVay is finally clearly seen for the mix of serious cultural figure and cartoon mischief maker that he is. Jayne Mansfield is finally presented as equal parts hyper-fictional bombastic pin-up and astute violin-playing media sorceress. This is the tale of two smart people having more fun with eachother than anyone realized at the time.
And where else are you going to see an animated baby Mariska Hargitay watch her big brother Zoltan get mauled by a lion?

Saucer-People 0 points 15 days ago.

Mansfield 66/77 could have been an excellent documentary - that’s not to say it isn’t worth a watch as you do get John Waters and Kenneth Anger thrown into the mix and some exquisite technicolor film footage for your trouble.
But come to a second viewing and I managed to get about half-way through and unfortunately everything that was annoying about it came to dominate and I found myself wondering why they would avoid the chance to use vintage sixties go-go dancing on Sunset Strip footage or Italian vampire occult 70s film footage like Witchcraft 70 or UK Alex Sanders naked wicca witches cavorting in woods archive, to use for the opening scenes or for audio voice over purposes, and instead go for cheesy performing arts dancers from Leeds and boring as wood academics when you have talking heads like Erik Davis or other counter-cultural/occultural luminaries to expand on that Satanic Hollywood nexus? Or even just more Anger and Waters would have been more entertaining than media critics who know little about Hollywood Babylon and just regurgitate the same tired old cultural studies tropes.
Even a Beach Boys And Satan style mockumentary would have been more entertaining and for a glamour cipher like Jayne who lived beyond good and evil, far more resonant.

The Snow White Murder Case (2014)
Saucer-People 0 points 16 days ago.

If you are new to Japanese cinema or a fan looking for some new titles, the work of director Yoshihiro Nakamura is well worth checking out, starting with this film, then Fish Story followed by Miracle Apples to name a few.
Kudos and thanks as always to the uploaders for all their hard work and good taste.

Relics: Einstein's Brain (1994)
Saucer-People 4 points 17 days ago.

Incredible yet little known documentary that follows Japanese maths professor Kenji Sugimoto and his search for Einstein’s brain, culminating in a ‘chance’ encounter with William S Burroughs and his assistant in Lawrence, Kansas just after he had left New York in the eighties.
This is definitely a file under truth is stranger than fiction film and kudos to the uploader as I was just thinking about this doc recently but had no idea where to find it again.

The Tomorrow People (1973)
Saucer-People 5 points 18 days ago.

Perfect lockdown material for the UK! It may have been small in budget but it was huge in the science fiction imagination of the 1970s. As the creators have stated in past interviews, because it was made for ‘children’, the ITV censors and controllers pretty much left them alone, free to add their own left-leaning radical and subversive ideas.
Of course as a youngster watching it at the time, I was only dimly aware of its subversive undercurrent but as an adult who has re-watched it over the years, I marvel at the imagination, creativity and radical approach to children’s TV by the creators.

Injustice with Nancy Grace (2019)
kerrberr2 4 points 1 year ago.

Not sure why some people were so negative…I enjoy watch true crime and this was very riveting. I don’t love Nancy Grace but the show was really good and put together. Make ur choice.

Saucer-People 1 points 18 days ago.

Agreed as well. I’ve just been catching up with both series and I found many of the episodes interesting and all factual and non-speculative, as far as I know - some of the cases have appeared in previous true crime documentaries and I found nothing controversial or contrary to what prior narratives have said about the cases.
The last two episodes I watched of Season 2 were shocking and while I need to do some more research about the episode 4 jogger case, the episode 5 case was indeed a huge injustice and kudos to her for highlighting it.
If my politics had determined what I watched/read/listened to all my life, I can guarantee I would have turned into a dogmatic and judgemental bore.

Injustice with Nancy Grace (2019) S2 E4
Saucer-People 1 points 18 days ago*. (Contains Spoilers)

I really need to look into this case as his guilt seemed overwhelming and if anything the refusal by the judge to include evidence of his past violent misogynistic outbursts seemed shocking.
I just don’t understand how it came to be seen as a miscarriage of justice as you had multiple evidentiary threads that I have never seen before in a case where they got the wrong murderer and in such a high profile case and retrial I would have expected an Errol Morris style documentary by now if his innocence was so demonstrable.

Ferat Vampire (1982)
Saucer-People 8 points 19 days ago.

Back in the cold war of the 1980s, America may have had Christine, the psychopathic car but Czechoslovakia went one better with Ferat Vampire, a car that kills and drinks blood as fuel!
This is such an entertaining science fiction/horror film that is played straight but is so darkly comedic in an understated way. The director Juraj Herz is sadly little known in the English speaking cinema world but films like this and his Beauty And The Beast adaptation are wonderful and well worth checking out.

J.R. 'Bob' Dobbs and the Church of the SubGenius (2019)

I am a card carrying SubGenius. Bob, Bob, Bob loves you…

Saucer-People 4 points 20 days ago*.

I’ve been keeping the Slack since the mid-eighties and I can’t help but feel that 2020 is Bob’s revenge or perhaps even a Discordian joke…

The Young Observant (2020)
Saucer-People 0 points 20 days ago.

Davide Maldi’s third feature, a docu-drama, follows a group of young apprentices at hotel school and Luca Tufano is one of them. The young men – there are only two girls on the course – learn basic skills such as how to serve and prepare food at the table, to balance a tray, and take an order/booking over the telephone, but there is much more to learn apart from these obvious ones. The school is renowned for its strict teaching methods: students learn that the customer is king and the source of their income. The lessons on cooking, dining room etiquette, law and religion, repeated day after day, make them endlessly confront their weaknesses, insecurities and abilities. At the end of the year Luca, immaculate in his black uniform with shiny shoes, will walk into the great hall and face the first test of his new career as a waiter and future maître d’hôtel…

Injustice with Nancy Grace (2019) S1 E2
Saucer-People 0 points 20 days ago*. (Contains Spoilers)

It’s when I watch episodes like this where the killer doesn’t serve a day in jail for his crime, but his conspirator gets life, that I realise what a very different judicial system we have in England. Good episode.

The First 48 (2004) S20 E1
Saucer-People 0 points 21 days ago. (Contains Spoilers)

Glad they are in Tulsa for the new season and hopefully New Orleans at some point as they have the most interesting homicide departments.
Check out the witness when he discusses grabbing the gun off the victim as it appears he unconsciously reenacts pulling the trigger, a dead give away!

Web of Lies (2014) S3 E3
magically_delicious 2 points 10 months ago.

The absolute true horror of what this mother did for attention at the literal expense of her son (and anyone else in her life) is worthy of the unwarranted attention to detail that other online fictionalised hysteria receives. Online personalities(Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, etc.) create environments that these unwell and homicidal personalities thrive in. Be careful what you give attention to is truth, and not another reason to stand on a soap box and get your own recognition. Personally, this story made me sick.

Saucer-People 1 points 22 days ago.

Very articulately put points and I agree, this episode made me sick to my core and while I have compassion for all those with severe mental problems, I must admit that Factitious Disorder Imposed on Another,
as Munchausen syndrome by proxy is now called, tests the limits of that compassion.
I thought it very astute of the detective who perceived the Internet as another dimension to such cases and I totally agree that social media is a medium in which crimes like these are reinforced and amplified by people who assume that everyone is as honest and sane as they are.

Shock Treatment (1973)
Saucer-People 0 points 22 days ago.

Wonderfully strange mystery/horror/scifi French film by Alain Jessua - kudos and thanks to the PW member who shared this and if they have any other of his films from the 60s/70s, it would be great to see them.

Operation Universe (1959)
Saucer-People 2 points 22 days ago.

Early Hammer Films short documentary extolling British scientific endeavours in the late fifties, focusing on the atomic industry, boat design, mechanical computing, aeronautical science and space technology. Fascinating footage of an almost forgotten mechanical world, now largely replaced by the virtual space of the computer simulation.
Filmed at a time when British science and technology still held out the promise of an empire dominant at the global cutting edge and yet soon to be surpassed by the Soviet Union and the USA in the sixties.

Seduced: Inside the NXIVM Cult (2020)
dragonfly 3 points 1 month ago.

That Allison Mack is a bonafide malignant narcissist,along with her ex-boss…her initial is in the branding too. Gross. Glad they are facing jail time.

Saucer-People 3 points 26 days ago.

Keith Raniere was sentenced to 120 years as anyone watching this series has probably heard by now - I totally agree with you about Allison Mack, and while I have compassion for all those who came under the spell of this highly intelligent psychopath, Mack seemed more than anyone else to have embraced the dark side of NXIVM and the combined initials of AM and KR in the branding insignia is the perfect illustration of this.
She will definitely be getting prison time if the Broffmann sentencing is anything to go by.

The Murder of Fred Hampton (1972)
Saucer-People 8 points 26 days ago*.

Betrayed and drugged by an FBI informer before being assassinated by the police while he slept, Fred Hampton was the one Black Panther who fit FBI director Hoover’s fear of the appearance of a ‘black messiah’ - someone who could unite all the races and saw class not racism as the key organising principle of revolution with his concept of the Rainbow Coalition that embraced grassroots working class groups like the Young Patriots, composed of poor displaced white youth.
Unfortunately the prevailing historical view of the Black Panthers is of gun-toting macho male revolutionaries even though the majority of the membership was young black women and I can’t help but feel that the vision of Fred Hampton was lost because of this distorted view of the Black Panthers.
One of the most essential documents of the radical seventies, the film and the message of Fred Hampton is more needed than ever.

Pastoral Hide and Seek (1974)
Saucer-People 1 points 28 days ago.

Two of my favourite Japanese people come together and make one hell of a film with the director Shûji Terayama and a killer soundtrack by J.A. Seazer which is available on record and CD. If you enjoy this watch Emperor Tomato Ketchup!

Evil Lives Here: Shadows of Death (2020) S1 E1
Saucer-People 3 points 28 days ago.

For those interested in the criminal justice system this episode is fascinating as it centres around false confessions, a man who nearly spent decades in jail and as always in these cases, a family who were traumatised twice - first with a murder and second with the belief the killer got away with it. I have nothing but admiration for all the cold case police officers who sometimes spend decades seeking justice for victims, their families and occasionally the wrongly accused.

Collective Invention (2015)
Saucer-People 1 points 29 days ago.

Surreal and highly enjoyable South Korean film about a man who mutates into a fish!

The Canterbury Tales (1972)
Saucer-People 1 points 1 month ago.

I was listening to the audiobook of past Doctor Who alumni Tom Baker’s autobiography on YouTube (which is well worth a listen - visceral, painfully honest and self-deprecating) and I had totally forgot that he was in this film - great anecdote about meeting Pasolini and during filming not being able to rise to the occasion during a lovemaking scene and Pasolini’s genius film crew using a screwdriver head and masking tape to mimic his member!

The Tin Drum (1979)

One of the best films of the seventies - if you like your films strange, beautiful and imaginative this adaptation of the Gunter Grass novel will stay with you forever.

Medea (1970)
Alien 2 points 1 month ago.

WOW! The late, great Maria Callas starring as Medea? This is amazing!

Saucer-People 3 points 1 month ago.

This is such a great film by one of my all time favourite directors and Maria Callas is stunning - Pasolini always cast the most interesting people and he seemed to do it intuitively and would make an instant decision as well as casting non-actors throughout his films.

PS> Kudos and thanks to the PW member(s) who have been posting quite a few of his films recently - it took me decades of cinema going, VHS tapes and more recently DVDs to see his body of work and the fact that you can now watch them for free without leaving your home is such an advance, though the chase was part of the experience I guess.

The Unbelievable Story of Carl Beech (2020)
Saucer-People 4 points 1 month ago.

Very interesting UK documentary on Carl Beech, the man who launched a multi-million pound police inquiry into his allegations of a ruling class child abuse ring and multiple murders carried out by the alleged group in the 1970s.
It illustrates perfectly that as a society we base truth less on facts and more on who has the most compelling narrative - this leaves us both vulnerable to big fat fibbers like Carl Beech and equally disbelieving of other narratives simply because they don’t fit within the prevailing consensus reality.
In the case of both the investigative journalists who promoted his story and the police who believed his every word, it would have made more sense to have assigned other journalists and police from the start to test the objectivity of Carl Beech’s story while others took it at ‘face value’ and simply recorded what he said - the fact that at the start no-one checked his reported injuries or computer history is shocking and I can’t help but believe that it was his status as a middle class professional that generated unquestioning belief and had he been from a working class background things would have turned out very differently.

Seduced: Inside the NXIVM Cult (2020)
Saucer-People 4 points 1 month ago*.

This is the perfect follow up to the NXIVM documentary series The Vow, though it’s made by different people and India Oxenberg, the absent subject of The Vow, is the ideal person to bring NXIVM down to an individual level and understand just how the NXIVM machinery of mind control operated.
The Vow documented the awakening of individuals from the cult and its subsequent destruction, while India and others tell us in incredibly honest and insightful testimony how NXIVM brought people into the cult through successive levels of indoctrination and manipulation.

It was fascinating to see footage of Dr. Brandon Porter and the testimony concerning the Clockwork Orange fright experiments and heartbreaking to watch the testimony of a former child member of The Children of God cult recount how her violent and repeated rape as a young child in one cult was symbolically reenacted in NXIVM and yet another example of how psychopaths like Keith Raniere have this instinctive radar that allows them to prey on traumatised individuals under the guise of ‘healing’.

Crime Beat (2020) S2 E3

This is the follow up episode and in many ways the final chapter of the 1984 Canadian child murder of Christine Jessop and the incredible miscarriage of justice that follows, which is covered in the first Crime Beat series:

The Con (2020)
Saucer-People 1 points 1 month ago.

The first two episodes of The Con have been excellent as they really bring out the utterly amoral sociopathic nature of the con artist and why anyone can be a victim. The irony of course is that many of the people who appear in these documentaries are the ones who believed they were far too smart and experienced to fall for a lame con artist. Often they have the money, career and education that appears to back up that statement. I say appears, because actually those factors are often what attracts the con artist in the first place and that’s because the con doesn’t take place in the mind, no matter how brilliant, it occurs in the heart.
It’s on the level of emotional intelligence that they operate, manipulating your hopes, dreams and desires as much as your bank account, and that’s why the victims are so emotionally destroyed, long after they have recovered financially and sometimes legally.
Like people who are the victims of cults, we should have compassion for them because remember, the con artists you see on The Con are the ones that have allowed themselves to be caught. What about the ones that are too smart to get caught? The chances are they are running the world!

The Lathe of Heaven (1980)
Saucer-People 3 points 1 month ago.

One of the best and most intelligent/philosophical science fiction TV films of the eighties. Based on a Taoist sci-fi story by the legendary Ursula Le Guin she takes a story of mind and matter and runs with it - like Slaughterhouse 5, the surreal Polish film Saragossa Manuscript or Tarkovsky’s Solaris or Stalker or a more recent film like the time travel puzzle that is Prime, this is another one of films that leaves your head spinning even after repeat viewing.

Do not adjust your mind, this is reality malfunctioning!

The Ash Tree (TV Short 1975) (1975)
Saucer-People 1 points 1 month ago.

The Ash Tree is one of the most unsettling M.R. James adaptation’s by the BBC of his supernatural tales and haunted the imagination of a generation of seventies and eighties viewers.
While the effects are somewhat primitive by today’s standards, the spectral atmosphere of the story more than makes up for it.

The Lorax (2012)
Saucer-People 1 points 1 month ago.

The original 1972 animation had a profound effect on myself as child and though I had been aware of this remake for some time, I usually avoid version 2.0 of any much loved film for obvious reasons, but after revisiting the original version (available elsewhere on Primewire), in a moment of madness I thought ‘well how bad can it be?’ - all I can say is it’s perfect for the snowflake generation:
Imagine a de-fanged, safe, corporate friendly, non-subversive version of the Dr Seuss classic and you have the 2012 remake - it is like a Twinkie, easy to digest,superficially tasty and easily accessible, but deep down you know it’s very wrong (and were links allowed there would be signpost right about here to at least watch the original as well as the remake).

The Bridge (2020)
Saucer-People 3 points 1 month ago. (Contains Spoilers)

They are unable to swim or sail to the island but what about paddling in the boat? If it’s a case of semantics then all the bridge building equipment is pure theatre - this is the first time I’ve watched one of these types of Channel 4 challenge competitions for years and usually the ‘challenge’ for the audience is finding at least one participant you don’t find thoroughly objectionable in order to have the strength to watch the series through to the bitter end.
