      >Schrader is a Christian. Raised Calvinist, Schrader abandoned religion in his young adulthood, before returning to Christianity later in life. He became an Episcopalian after the birth of his children. As of 2018, he attends a Presbyterian church. His films frequently feature religious themes. However, Schrader has now emphasized that he considers himself to be just a Christian.

                Nowhere in the religion does it say you need to even like the Pope or that any of the bullshit he talks about is true. You're a fricking pathetic protestant afraid to see a picture of Jesus in your church and so eager to fight for gay people.

    He's entitled to his own opinion, no matter how wrong he is.
    But I think celebrated directors dunking on recent trends have a kind of resentment and ageing bitterness.
    And this attitude it's hilarious on Spielberg and Lucas: blockbuster directors angry that blockbusters are different of their very specific taste.

      How is he wrong?

        That 'cinema of grotesqueries' sounds to me short sighted and kinda mean spirited.

        He talks as if Furiosa were an Avengers-like movie leading a trend, which is wrong: it has a modest success money-wise and no other directors have the guts/scope/skill to make a new punk-apocalyptic revival like in the 1980s.
        He seems so mad at this movie in particular that he exaggerated its impact on the movie business, and I say this as a Miller fan.

        Hence why I think there's something personal in his hate, and I think it's seeing a very vigorous, enthusiastic form of cinema that he cannot enjoy, even worse if it comes from a director of his same age.

            I think he derogates Furiosa to the level of a freak circus, or a movie made for shock value. Maybe he thinks it's just tacky.

            I wish he ranted a lot more, I wouldn't be surprised if at one point he would say 'and there's a lot of dirty people and what the hell it's the deal with that midget?'

              You better not assume anything either way. Despite the fact that these guys can be asskissers on occasion, I very much doubt Spielberg would sincerely praise Furiosa's CGI for instance, not least bc Miller is from their generation as well.
              There are only 3 directors nowadays whose VFX are top level:
              Nolan
              PotC-era Verbinski
              District 9/Oats Studios shorts Blomkamp

                Spielberg has plenty of spotty CGI in his films and I don't think he gives that much of a shit about it beyond a thing that prevents restrictions in designing a shot.

        I think they're blaming movies instead of stupid business models and money laundering.
        Marvel movies were popular like westerns, musical and biblical epics were back then. And superhero movies' box office decline match with their quality decline (as mass appealing movies)
        Five years from know if we're on Video-game movies clogging movie theaters a Paul Shrader or Spielberg movie will flop too. Then who was the culprit all along, Zelda or some CEO?

        And yes, Spielberg and Lucas dunking on superhero blockbusters sounds as ironic and petty as John Hammond crying because now another park has bigger dinosaurs than his.

          Not really, the capeshit is devoid of cinematic merit and is consumed and cast aside as fast as it's produced. Lucas and Spielberg were creative and advanced the art form in their own way, capeshit simply does not.

            >capeshit is devoid of cinematic merit and is consumed and cast aside as fast as it's produced.
            This is so subjective that we can be stuck forever in this topic. But I think some recent superhero movies will age well and be considered classics once the dust settles.

            >Lucas and Spielberg were creative and advanced the art form in their own way, capeshit simply does not.
            I'm more biased on favor of Spielberg as an artist, Lucas for me has more merit as a special effects nerd and a business man that made pop culture viable on cinema including ironically the Marvel movies.
            The advances of capers on the technical side are obvious, but also the way it makes characters deemed as ridiculous and unfilmable 25 years ago to be as iconic as Dirty Harry, James Bond or Shane, making the comic book movie a valid genre as any other.
            Logan is a character study on ageing and redemption, and nobody laughed when that guy popped claws from his hands.
            Endgame has the same ambition and scope of a biblical epic about Moses, featuring a talking racoon with an interesting, believable story arc.
            The Guardians of the Galaxy is a space opera blockbuster on par with any other of its kind in the last half century, and has the same resonance on kids today as Star Wars did on its day.

          Their criticism is indeed still incomplete. The model itself (money laundering, supbar cgi, bloated budgets) urgently needs cleaning up. There is also a lack of harsher criticism of visibly mediocre directors- Patty Jenkins, Taika Waititi etc

      Miller's movie is definitely better than anything Schrader has put out in the last 30 years.

      The grotesque as it's been expressed within literally every artistic medium since the dawn of time is hardly new.
      Someone should tweet Paul Schrader & ask him if it's actually possible he's never heard of Hieronymous Bosch or Zdzisław Beksiński or Giger, for instance.
      The Nietzschean vibe of Furiosa (kino, by the way) is far from new.
      George Miller's film is a fitting sign of the times.
      And if perhaps Schrader is left-leaning politically, then one can say that in fact it's him & his generation who contributed to it.

      The fact that Schrader even watched In A Violent Nature is kino unto itself.
      Though it's kind of odd that he seems to have forgotten the 80's, that being the peak decade of the slasher film, or at least the Friday The 13th series.
      Which itself began decades before with Hitchwiener & "Psycho", followed not long after by a literal flood of Italian giallo films, from Bava to Argento, no less.
      With that said, considering the perspective of IAVN's central character, one shouldn't be the least surprised that the film itself is heartless, soulless & unashamedly ghoulish.

    It's not about the content of the cinema, it's about how terrible the images have become.

The problem with the current state of our dear movies is that the craftmanship is no longer there. I have spoken the truth.
