The last two years have been difficult years for filmmakers. Quarantine and social restrictions made watching movies take on a different meaning, and screens went out of the way they had adhered to for more than a hundred years. This situation made us miss the ritual of "watching movies" very much. In the list below, we review the ten cinematic masterpieces that have been made about going to the cinema and facing the cinema. Sherlock Jr.

- User Score > IMDb to the movie: 8/2 out of 10
The third Buster Keaton movie is a compact 45-minute movie. Yet, far more than all the record of many of his contemporaries, he has done comic inventions and new discoveries at the heart of the seventh art; The seventh art, which was relatively young at the time. Keaton's unparalleled physical prowess is especially astounding in the chase that takes place at the climax of the film. In this romantic comedy, there is a young cinematographer who wants to become a detective. The young man likes a girl but is mistakenly considered a thief by the girl's family and kicked out of the house.
But Sherlock Jr.'s real and main love is cinema. The sequence in which he imagines himself in a film and the montage of the film puts him in a series of unexpected and dangerous places is an innovative embodiment of our desire to expose ourselves to the silver screen of cinema. Long before the advent of Jean-Luc Godard, Mel Brooks, or any postmodern filmmaker breaking the fourth wall, Buster Keaton experimented with medium-sized cinematic possibilities in the film with seemingly simple complexities.

A London novelist and his wife (Bill Travers and Virginia McKenna who really They were a couple) inheriting a cinema away from their own people. As soon as they entered the Slobro area, those who thought they had inherited the royal cinema and the amenities were confronted with a pit-like structure torn apart by a flood of debts and rats; The cinema also has 3 elderly employees.
Naturally, the couple decides to renovate the cinema and cause comic incidents with the locals. The film's director, Basil Darden, makes a number of extraordinary fake films and also incorporates any incident that may occur in a cinema; The tearing of the screen, the collapse of the seats, the inverted banners, and the cheerful spectators who go to the cinema in spite of all the misfortunes are reminiscent of the pleasant memories of going to the cinema.

- User Rating IMDb To the film: 7/4 out of 10
It might be appropriate for a film with the most beautiful swan song by Boris Karlov, the star of the film's classic monsters, to be something like Frankenstein's monster. Peter Bogdanovich's first film, starring Roger Corman, a master filmmaker, cleverly plays Karloff on screen, in addition to linking Karloff/Corman's previous real films (starring the young Jack Nicholson!) To the film's story. And he portrays a seemingly good-natured young man who is being killed.
Some of Bogdanovich's goals are quite clear; Outdated fantasy fears about real-life violence. It often seems like we're watching two separate movies. But everything comes together in the final part of the film.
4) The Purple Rose of Cairo

If Sherlock Jr. gets his hero into a movie he's watching, so does Woody Allen. It puts the idea into practice. Cecilia is a despised housewife living in New York and going through a period of depression. One day, while watching his favorite movie again, the protagonist, Tom Baxter, comes out of the picture and enters his life. And so an unrequited romance ensues, much to the dismay of Baxter's production team, the film's production studio, and Gill Shepard (played by Tom Baxter). Allen's career from the late 1970s to the late 1970s. 80 is one of the turning points of his entire filmmaking career, and "Cairo Purple Rose" is one of those brilliant films that is lost among the masterpieces and deserves less attention than it deserves. The film is a perfect combination of comedy and a sad romance that reminds us of the gap between fantasy, achieving impossible dreams and hard reality. The final scene of the film, which shows Mia Faro's astonished look at Astir and Rogers in the picture, is almost the most accurate interpretation of anything we know as cinema; Truth at 24 frames per second. Even when he lies.
5) Cinema Paradiso

Giuseppe Tornatore's Oscar-winning film is probably the most popular movie It has been in a non-English language for over 30 years. It is not difficult to find the reason for this popularity. For all the vast emotions reminiscent of Fellini's films, and for all the fascination it produces in its growing pains, it draws its main force from the power that exists in the phenomenon of film and cinema itself; A nostalgic force that is almost impossible to resist.
In a small village in Sicily, a teenage tattoo begins to help Alfredo, the old apparatchik in a cinema. Tutu's life soon comes under the direct influence of the images he sees in cinema, and cinema becomes the biggest part of his life. With his age and new experiences such as love and loss, as well as becoming a filmmaker, Tutu can now better separate the illusion of cinema from the reality around him, but Cinema Paradiso still rejects such a separation between reality and illusion. The true spirit of the film can be found in two of its most famous scenes: the screening of the film on the city square walls and the gift that Alfredo gives Tutu as he bids farewell.

"Can I get into the pictures?"
Reveals to us. In fact, although few scenes of the film take place in the working-class's "windy" childhood cinemas in Liverpool in the 1950s, the cinema can be seen in all scenes on school days or church Sundays. Cinema permeates all frames and gives clearer lessons than school and church lessons to give meaning to the life of the "wind." Memory reminders are made. The wandering camera follows the lines of classroom desks and crowded church benches and settles into the cinema corridors full of smoke and apparatus of light. Excerpts from Hollywood musicals or Ealing comedies are woven into the film's intricate tapestry. Even the repetitive shots we see of the "wind" glaring at his bedroom window look like a celluloid frame. When real life is brutal and violent and confusing, Davis acknowledges that the film allows us to create our own truths inside.

1962. The Cuban Missile Crisis is at the forefront of world news, and a strange story is unfolding in Quest, Florida. The young Lumis brothers have strange fears in their heads. The first screening of a new film called Mount (which tells the horror story of a creature half human and half insect) is set to feature famous filmmaker Lawrence Woolsey. His new work is ready to add new dimensions such as shaky chairs to the horror film, but all this on the premise that nuclear war will not happen. His film captures the excitement of youth when discovering the pleasures and fears that his experimenters are still too young to face but can not wait to face. High cinematic literacy brilliantly examines the serious issues of the era, including the nuclear catastrophe and the Hollywood blacklist, and constitutes a valuable behemoth; A bumwoo that is somewhat parody and somewhat scary and totally extraordinary.

Sai Ming Liang for a 2001 film made one of the scenes in the cinema of the old Hu-Fu repertoire in Taipei. Fascinated by the cinema's blurred grandeur, he hired it and shot his entire next film there; Farewell to the Cave Hall, during which he screens the classic Dragon In movie for a select audience, including two Dragon In actors. Cinema workers are silently added to the crowd, watching the film so that they can miss the rain that is falling outside the hall. The dialogue is long and silent, but in vague and curious ways, it is interesting and engaging. Farewell Dragon gives the feeling of a ghost story long before Foo-hu is really deserted, but it also has jokes and jokes. Cinnamon often means enduring the noisy eating of others or their legs hanging on a chair. The film is at the same time a cunning metaphor and a tribute to cinema that proves the endless possibilities of reviving this medium.

A modern deconstruction in presenting the myths of ancient Iranian culture or a film in which some people are watching television? Stubborn fans of the legendary Abbas Kiarostami will most likely deny the second sentence as a description of the sweet film. But the truth is that the courageous and strict Kiarostami was playful enough to do anything. In Shirin, she invites 114 Iranian actresses, in addition to Juliette Binoche, to listen to a poem by Khosrow and Shirin. As sweet viewers, we only watch close-ups of these actors in response to the word.
The maker of the sweet film is somewhat fake. The actors are all staring at the empty screen in front of them. But the emotions and reactions they give to the sound they hear seem very real. The film was a fascinating and meaningful cinematic experience for Kiarostami. He was trying to experience new things while making this film. As he told one of the actors during the making of the film: "This film has neither a director nor an actor. You are just yourself and yourself. If you do good, it is to your advantage, and if it is not, it is to your own detriment.

Uruguay Cinematic in Montevideo (now the name of a movie town) is the name of an institution It's cultural, and Jorge Jelink is a real critic of Uruguayan cinema (he also voted for the best film in the latest Endsound poll). But the film's director, Frederico Firouge, takes these factors into the real world and presents an imaginary scenario in which a veteran curator has to face the closure of his favorite workplace and face the outside world again.
This short, monochrome film has enough social observations and mild comedy to appeal to a general audience. But without form, those who are involved with repertory cinema as a hobby or profession have the most connection with film. Because the film consciously engages with the selection of films, it tries to motivate the audience or keep them waiting for questions and answers to begin at the end of the film. And then there's the painful scene where we hear that Cinematheque is "not a very profitable project." As this is not a documentary. No?
