Coming Soon to rarefilmm

Hi guys,

It’s your friend Jon here, just wanted to make a list with some of the movies I’ll be uploading on the site next month, most of these were requested by you guys on the requests section, the only comments that are still there are for films I don’t have (or I have but without subtitles), if you asked a movie and your comment has been deleted and it’s not on this list please let me know and I’ll double check.

Most of the films on the list below are foreign films, as you can imagine those are the ones who take the most time to upload, one of the reasons for that is because I make sure you get the best quality copies possible, this means I have to encode with the best settings and that makes the encoding process take a lot of time, usually 3-4 hours until the movie is ready with subtitles embedded, sometimes even more, that is for one movie, another problem is that on many ocassions the subtitles for a movie are out of sync so I have to take the time to fix the timings, that also takes a lot of time because you usually have to go line by line, contrary to other websites who just post them as they find them, without even doing a spell check, and the worst part: they make you pay to download them! well you can get them for free actually but the download speed will not go higher than 20kbps, so you’ll have to leave your computer on the whole day for a single movie, absurd. 

So please bear with me on this, I’ll try to upload all the remaining requests before the end of the year, I will also be uploading some Christmas movies starting next month.

I’m also working on a members section that I’ll be launching on February with exclusive content, if you enjoy my work and you would like to help me keep the site online this will be the best way to contribute, it will be a monthly subscription and you will have exclusive benefits for being a member. I will be posting more details about this such as prices and what the benefits will be very soon.

Thank you guys!

    Wonderful stuff. Cadaveri Eccellenti has been on my wishlist for ever. Im sure there are many more I havent heard of that I will enjoy over the coming weeks. Many thanks as ever for providing this service.

    I look forward to these, Jon. In September I was looking for Samurai no ko (1963) by Mitsuo Wakasugi.
    And last month a friend of mine requested a British film directed by Robert Donat called The Cure for Love (1950).
    If you could double check on those that would be appreciated.

    • Jon W.
      November 23, 2019

      Yeah no luck with those two unfortunately, Tony, I’ll add them to the wanted list in the next update.

    Some great and super rare stuff there, my friend. Very cool! As a lover of foreign cinema, I can’t thank you enough!

    Ohhh Jon, you beauty.. “Eva”.! Coming close to completing my Jeanne Moreau wish list with this and earlier Moderato Cantabile.
    Thanks for the continued hard work and may I second MWX’s comment; have a restful Christmas.

    So much to look forward to. An extensive list like this emphasizes how much work you put into this site. I can only hope you know how loved it is by me—and, I’m sure, so many other film fans who find themselves either seeing movies they have long wanted to see but seemed unavailable, or discovering those they have never heard of. Simply, thanks.

    A truly amazing list of ‘coming soon’ films. Rare gems from all over the world. So many to watch on top of an already wonderful collection. Jon, this is a Herculean task with so much care put into. Thank you so much!

    November 25, 2019

    Amazing work as always Jon, just to ask, I requested Lake of the Dead (1958) or Let Sleeping Cops Lie (1988) and just wondered if they were viable in the end? Thanks for everything!!

    • Jon W.
      November 25, 2019

      Thank you, Steve, I just added ‘Lake of the Dead’ to the list, no subs for ‘Let Sleeping Cops Lie’ unfortunately.

  13. November 25, 2019

    Thanks Jon for all the hard work! Just to let you know ‘Yeelen” and “nuit et jour” are out there as I watched them recently in English subs. Did you have any luck with finding any De Oliveira films?

    • Jon W.
      November 25, 2019

      Hi Aidan.
      I’ll upload “Inquietude” for you, just added it to the list.
      Where did you watch “Yeleen” and “Nuit et Jour”? I didn’t find any DVDs with Eng. subs when I searched for them.
      Thanks for the support!

      • December 2, 2019

        Yeelen was on dailymotion, maybe they removed it. Nuit et Jour is on, but I just realized it was in Spanish subs not English. Again, thanks so much for the hard work, this site is fantastic!

  14. November 26, 2019

    Yeelen is available on DVD from Kino on for $28

    • Jon W.
      November 26, 2019

      Thanks, Bill.
      Looks like you can buy it directly from the Kino website for $15.
      Deleting this one from the list for now, unless it goes out of print I won’t be uploading it.

  15. November 27, 2019

    Jon —

    Just checking up on a request you erased, but which isn’t on this list or on your search list

    I asked for Richard Kelly’s short, Visceral Matter or the Hungarian animated SF short, Bizonyos Jóslatok

    Thanks for checking on this for me, and for giving us the opportunity to make these requests! Keep up the great work.

    • Jon W.
      December 11, 2019

      Sorry for ignoring you, haven’t been able to find much information about either of those two shorts to be honest but I’ll keep looking.
      If there’s an update I’ll post it here.


  16. November 28, 2019

    Wow, these look amazing! I look forward to your subscriber plan 🙂

    I look for Ladies Must Live – 1940 – a Warner Bros. movie

  18. November 30, 2019

    Hi Jon,
    Are those links to genres going to be available on your website? They would be very handy.

    A Few Days With Me???

    French film by Claude Sautet from 1988

    Missed a screening of it in 2012 and havn’t ever seen it put on again anywhere since then. (there was a retrospect of Sautet then, A Few Days With Me and a movie called Garcon were screened back to back and i couldn’t get out of work the night they were screened–I’m still waiting for Max and the Junkmen to get a DVD release as well, but i think that might actually happen one year unlike A Few Days With Me)

    Thanks==this place is amazing btw–i could spend the next year watching the stuff here easy.

  27. Don
    December 7, 2019

    I’ve been visiting the site for close to a year now. Always find great stuff. Thanks!

    3 movies I’ve been searching for…… Hat Check Girl (1932 with Ginger Rogers), Bachelor’s Afffairs (1932 with Adolphe Menjou), and Angels Of Darkness [a.k.a. Donne Proibite] (1954 with Linda Darnell). They all seem extremely rare! The 1932 films had like single showings at UCLA a few years back and otherwise seem not to exist. Any luck with those would be AMAZING!
