“Personal Problems”. Fascinating vhs shot African American ensemble drama from 1980. Often described as an “experimental soap opera”

Just about every Frederick Wiseman doc is on there. The most recent (Ex Libris: New York Public Library) is as good a place to start as any.

Originally got Kanopy for the Wiseman stuff because most of it was hard to see for so long. Very little of it seems bad and there’s a lot of it. Haven’t seen Ex Libras yet but would recommend any of his films that sounds like a world you’d be most interested in getting a window into. There’s poetry a can often function like time travel.

not entirely sure what all i've watched on this thing since it doesn't seem like there's any viewing history you can pull up... weird. i know *most* of my viewing has been criterion or criterion-esque classic works of cinema but i won't bother listing those...

i found THE FITS a little slow but it cast some kind of distinctive spell, just kinda hanging around the gym and taking in the teen girl culture amidst not entirely explained dark events.

ERNEST AND CELESTINE is a massively charming little animated odd-couple pairing of a musical bear and a painterly mouse, both misfits in their respective societies. we watched the english dub, which features an abundance of talent.

i need to finish WELCOME TO THE SPACE SHOW, a sort of flatly delivered but very bizarre stoner anime; when i left off, the group of kids who had been transported to the moon by a talking space dog were all stuck in red tape trying to get passports back home and were forced to take various odd jobs in moon society. promising.

caveat: different libraries/packages have different movies.

There is a viewing history, at least on the web interface. I can see many Criterions I watched or started watching summer of 2017 that have since gone missing, for instance The Silence and Vengeance is Mine.

Spirit of the Voice of the Beehive (James Redd and the Blecchs), Wednesday, 26 December 2018 15:17 (six months ago) Permalink

you're right! man, they've really got to get things standardized between different interfaces. the android one is smooth as silk, maybe the most usable streaming service i've got on here, but also missing features like that. the web one is clunky but largely functional (setting aside the miserable pagination of the watchlist). the roku one was one of the jankiest things i've used in years and massively buggy (subtitles in particular were a nightmare).

ok so:

KEDI was a wonderful documentary for any cat-lover. humans and stray cats living lives side by side and supporting each other.

PATEMA INVERTED is a sci-fi anime that seemed like it'd be trippy and interesting with this world of inverted gravity and stuff, but it was actually a bog-standard little sci-fi adventure story with only a couple of cool parts and really flat characters. might have been more into it when i was 15 and indiscriminately consuming genre anime but...

HUNT FOR THE WILDERPEOPLE has a great gruffy-guy sam neill performance and a sorta annoying/forced plot that depends on the kid saying the dumbest (and unfunnyest) stuff at key moments to keep them living on the run in the woods. wasn't into that side of it but the actual grump/kid bonding stuff was well-done.

You are correct about the interface standardization issue. One thing I couldn’t figure out about how to do on the webpage that I can do on the iPhone app is Add to Watchlist.

It's insane - you have to click through to the movie, past even confirming which subscription you're using (which makes it seem like you'd be using one of your credits, but that doesn't happen til you actually click on the video window to play) and THEN there's an add-to-list button.

I see nine Claude Chabrol titles listed on here, mostly through the Cohen Film Collection, which seems to have pretty good stuff. I watched two of these recently, both of which I enjoyed. One was The Bridesmaid, the title character being convincing portrayed by the daughter of Nathalie Baye and Johnny Hallyday. The other was L'Enfer his version of the never-finished film that was the subject of Henri-George Clouzot's Inferno, which I also watched on Kanopy, although it has since gone away for me- but might have lived on for a while in my Viewing History, or at least my Watchlist, although now I don't see it in either. The Chabrol film is fine, but I highly recommend the documentary about (the) Clouzot, although I am partial to le film maudit.

It’s actually difficult to tell, for me at least, when you are clicking to start watching or when you are clicking to check availability and select your library. For instance, I just clicked through to Fists in the Pocket which I now am presumably watching but I thought I was only checking availability.

I am also presumably watching the remake of Marius and Fanny for the same reason. Although it doesn’t show any credits being used up for these two, perhaps there is a grace period of a few seconds.

Here’s another thing. Website will tell you that the film you started watching Expires in 2 days, whereas iPhone app does not. Wonder if it gives you in units of hours when it gets under one day, betting no, but who knows.

Spirit of the Voice of the Beehive (James Redd and the Blecchs), Wednesday, 26 December 2018 18:25 (six months ago) Permalink

In other words, vis-à-vis the clicking, it only takes one click to start watching on the iPhone, whereas it seems to take several on the website.

maybe you guys are losing part of the interface to an ad blocker or something? i have been running safari on osx with no ad blocker for a while, just the built-in anti-tracking stuff, and i get an overlay with watch now / add to watchlist buttons (in the space where the title is) when i mouse over the art for a title in the front-page discovery interface.

in search results there's no equivalent (each item is less interactive in that way) but if you clock through to the result's page the add button is right there under the controller.

maybe having more than one subscription adds a complication that they didn't really integrate into their initial design scheme.

forgot these were ones i watched on there:

HOT SUMMER NIGHTS: hot summer trash! feels like something chalamet filmed two years earlier and which was shelved because it wasn't very good, and was now getting pushed out cause he had the buzz. definitely not the fun coming-of-age drug-dealers-in-over-their-head movie it suggests, and all the lust-for-the-crush-object stuff feels just like a straight shitty 80s take rather than some kind of retro commentary on those 80s tropes. soundtrack is also very chronologically confused.

THE LITTLE HOURS: can't tell if this was bad or if we just weren't in the mood for what it was doing. raunchy medieval nun comedy where the gag is, medieval nuns are raunchy. there are a couple of big, funny bits but then there are more serious emotional things that wander their way through and leave no impact. feels like a funny sketch that didn't need to be a full movie but i could imagine it being funny if you were in the mood for it.

I have 183 films in my Kanopy queue, which at a 5-per-month limit even for two-minute-long shorts, would take three years to watch. If rights periods lapse, that just makes picking something easier.

I was pretty sure the third of Satyajit Ray's Apu trilogy was available a year ago. when I went to watch it it was gone. The streamers vs film rights owners thing makes sense, but I didn't really think about it applying to a 60-year old film. I guess there's no reason why it shouldn't

I live just a few blocks from where they are located, I should stop in to chat, it would be interesting to know more about them

three weeks pass...

The hidden costs of Kanopy:

Recently, an increasing number of scholars have become aware of a simple fact about the service: university and college libraries do not pay a flat fee like individuals might for Netflix, Hulu, or the (now defunct) FilmStruck. Instead, Kanopy’s platform drives “patron-driven acquisition” in which three viewings (defined as 30 seconds or more of a title) trigger a library license fee per title. (The figures I’ve seen are $150 for a year, $350 for a 3-year license, though the price might vary or change over time.)

Those fees can add up quickly, and some libraries have felt a strain on their budgets. For instance, Stanford University called Kanopy’s cost “no longer sustainable” as they announced their switch from an open-platform version to a limited-access, request-only version (the only way libraries can turn off the license fee trigger of patron-driven acquisition). However, these issues do not affect public libraries, which pay Kanopy per view (current fee of $2), similar to a transaction video on demand (TVOD) service like iTunes. Still, patrons do their local public library’s budget no favors by streaming the “free” Kanopy titles, even if those libraries presumably factor in the streaming costs as part of their mission....

Ultimately, the decision around Kanopy or other streaming websites lies with the libraries. But it might be wise for film scholars housed at higher-education institutions to be aware of the pricing constraints that streaming services place on their university libraries’ overall acquisitions. I do not intend to paint Kanopy as the bad guy in the story of streaming access – the company has brought an innovation to an underserved marketplace, added convenience, and expanded the audience for many films – but as an educator, film scholar, and general cinephile, I am particularly sensitive to the imperative to support physical media and independent distributors, and remain committed to searching out streaming alternatives featuring independent content, even for my personal use....

coincidentally half my films are CC films hosted on kanopy, but that doesn't help with the others.

Queens Public Library btw still has a fractional streaming offering through the OverDrive platform. From what I can tell the offerings here are more customized to each library system. I just scrolled through it all myself; QPL's offerings include something like 900 total movie titles, but that should be understood to include hundreds of videos explaining how to use PowerPoint 2013, semi-animated renderings of children's picture books, etc. In theory one could filter down to *movies* as such, but the data entry side of things is pathetically bad - if you filter for 'feature films,' hundreds of things that should show up don't. Also, films are sometimes "by" the director, sometimes the distributor, sometimes the lead actor. Who knew Orlando Bloom had such a rich directorial career? Still.... there's at least a handful of things and if you have a Queens library card it might be worth skimming through. Asian cinema is well-represented.

Kanopy right now has streaming rights to a number of Kino/Flicker Alley/Cohen titles that are this kitten's catnip. Supposedly these labels will be supplying titles to the Criterion Channel, but I'm not holding my breath. Is it a matter of licensing agreements with Kanopy having to expire before CC can pick up these titles?
