720 minutes? Who is he, the Swedish Peter Jackson?

Mugato: 720 minutes? Who is he, the Swedish Peter Jackson?


No, 720 HOURS.  You know, 30 frickin' days?

Yeah, that's what I meant.

"It will be shown in every continent, only once, before it is destroyed."

Eh, nuts. I was gonna get it on Blu-ray, too.

Ambiancé?  Rhymes with "Om Beyoncé?"
 
2014-07-10 08:44:02 PM  
Ain't nobody got time for that.
 
2014-07-10 08:44:59 PM  
And it still has more plot than Tree of LIfe.

/I'm in the minority that loved that film

I see why you chose that handle, or it chose you.

The part that disappoints me is that they're going to destroy it after it views.

I love the composer Marsen Jules aka Krill.Minima.  Some of his dub techno stuff is terrific.

I really want to know if anyone else contributed music to this project.

Even if they destroy the film, I certainly hope the music survives in some form.

A filmmaker with no discipline in his craft? Forget it. I've seen more than enough concept movies to now you see more poorly done films than something interesting and different. I'd rather spent that 720 hours watching any group of Netflix recommended streaming films.

Watch a movie for 720 hours or start a new Fallout character....think I'll go with the one that's awesome.

Meh, its experimental film.  Much like experimental music- which I used to create for fun (never made much money off of it).  I once created a 99 minute song.  None of you would want to hear it.

What the screening may look like:

There's a 900 hour film. It's very rare. You guys wouldn't have heard of it. Its artistry is not exactly the Hollywood type movie that most people like you go for.

I wonder what the editing process was like?

fusillade762: I wonder what the editing process was like?


At 720 hours, it was more additing than editing.
IMHO

could someone translates hours into days?
I cannot comprehend over 96 hours...

but there are some good Swedish movies... like Troll Hunter.
I like this one very much.

The term "experimental" when used outside of science is typically a euphemism for "pile of shiat"
 
2014-07-10 09:57:00 PM  
Sub-headline says it will be 480 minutes longer that the current longest film.  It should read 480 hours longer....

Not that I'm being picky.  The sub-headline could just as easily read "719.99 hours longer than anyone will actually watch."

(0.01h = 36 seconds)

Sinbox: For those who are so interested, the list of the lengthiest experimental + commercial films thus far (wiki).


The Clock is actually kind of interesting film. I wouldn't want to spend 24 hours watching it, but I think its pretty clever that someone managed to put time and effort to find clips of time being depicted in movies and paste them all together.

Try some of his music out.  I guarantee BoC fans will find something they like.

as in experimental music.

after all, Zappa or other shiaty bands like Pink Floyd are just shiaty.... well you know.

i can't even fathom a movie that is 720 hours long.  you could watch every single episode of the simpsons twice and it wouldn't be that long.
 
2014-07-10 10:24:14 PM  
I'm going to need a refill on that large popcorn.

It will be shown, but it will not be watched.

I could just record 30 days worth of CNN and call that a 720-hour movie.  Nobody would watch all of THAT either.

Nerd time - At 22 minutes per episode, at approximately 25 eps per season, at 25 seasons, that comes out to 13750 minutes, or about 230 hours.

Watching every Star Trek episode and movie would take ~25 days.

Geez, another trailer that gives away the whole movie.
 
2014-07-10 11:16:40 PM  
Another foreign film. I'll wait for the Hollywood remake.

I think i will put a brick on a piano keyboard and leave it there for a year.  It will be the worlds longest held chord.  I will record it and sell it as a single WAV file stored on a RAID array for one twenty million dollars.  The piano and brick are priceless and not for sale.
 
2014-07-10 11:55:56 PM  
I'll wait for the directors cut box set. There ought to be at least another months worth of deleted scenes, out takes, interviews and behind the scenes footage.

I thought it said Swedish fish maker. I'm sad now.

So, his dream project is a movie based on his memoirs that would take someone a month to watch, non-stop.

That sounds like a dreadful and pretentious piece of shiat that absolutely no one on God's green earth will ever want to see.

Mmm...I have some time off in a few weeks and I'll be in that general vicinity...

A little over 28. I did the math when I was unemployed.

/something tells me the director is insufferable to be around but has the best drugs.


if you have both fallout 3 and new vegas, i highly recommend looking into tale of two wastelands.  it has completely revived both games for me.  it mods fallout new vegas to include all of fallout 3, with a train station linking the two maps and full questlines and dlcs (granted you have legal versions of everything).

 it's extremely satisfying to bring an anti-material rifle into the super mutant ridden wasteland.
 
2014-07-11 10:34:01 AM  
Yeah, because no one has sat down and watched anything for 30 hours straight before.

When I get a PC capable of pushing even Fallout 3, I'm totally doing this. Thank you.

It's not as bad as you think. There's an intermission after hour 360.

Try 30 days straight
