The Holy Mouintain was on cable, I came in part way through, it did seem like a student film, I quit it.
Perhaps I need to see it in a darken theater, without distrctions.

I did sit through the theatrical release of Santa Sangre when it was first released. The prodution values seemed a bit higher than Mountain. It was an unique and very rewarding experience.

Well, sure, screenshots of a film are almost missing something from in motion, and some will happen to work better in stills than others. And often I like to merely capture a series of shots from a particular sequence or scene I find striking, so those are less a simple collection of the most interesting images from the film or whatever. Then others might be more for their beauty in lighting or mise-en-scene than strictly for composition. I do try to always post shots I find compositionally strong though, if some are in more subtle ways than others.

GAF dies a little every time you type "mise-en-scene".

Fair. And it wasn't a criticism; For the vast majority, I really like your selections even though I haven't seen most of the films. Every once in a while one will stick out as being a little pedestrian to me, so I was genuinely curious. But I like this thread. I had been trying for months to turn the photo thread into something similar, but nobody else seemed interested, so gave up. I'm a little jealous at the level of discussion in the film threads

Oh of course, I didn't take it that way. Am just happy to discuss it and glad you enjoy the thread, for what it is.

Not taken by yours truly, but by a friend. But I'm ok with stealing these:

90 seconds of the Dragon Tattoo teaser > 130 min (!!!) of X-Men: First Class. It played right before the film and I immediately lost my shit.
