  1. anarchist theory on revolution: since the society we seek does not involve relations of authority, it is self-evident that our methods cannot incorporate authority.
  2. anarchist theory on making bread: since the bread we seek is not 350 degrees Fahrenheit, it is self-evident that our methods cannot involve heating it to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Beginner’s Guide to International Cinema

So I’ve received over the past several months many people asking me about broadening their interest in film. I usually just send my mubi profile to them or something but instead I thought I’d give resources and some tips to watching international cinema.

Resources For Finding Films

Resources to Watching Films
  • YOUTUBE - I can’t stress this enough. Many wonderful people on youtube are kind enough to take the time & upload films that are  not easy to find. 
  • kat.ph - a nifty torrent site with a lot of good films on available that have seeding (give or take).
  • Facets Film Portal: Again promoting Facets but they’re just so good. They have a link to finding free films online as well as a DVD rental service like netflix.
  • Netflix Instant - seriously just go through their ‘foreign film’ section and you’ll find so many gems lurking in there.
  • hulu+ (US) - Mainly for the Criterion Collection section but what’s great is that they also stream films that are not on DVD yet and have not even been announced.
  • fandor (US) - Another streaming site that’s geared to film fans.
  • Internet Archive -  free films that are in the public domain
  • Subtitles - best to search via search engine but you’ll likely rely on Open Subtitles
