Requests (closed)

Hey y’all,

Feel free to write in the comments below which movies you would like me to add on the site.

Remember I can’t just upload any movie, there’s a number of “rules” that I need you guys to follow in order to “green light” a film, they are the following:

  1. No Region 1 DVD/Bluray of the said film is currently in-print and available to purchase online, good places to check availability of films on DVD and Blu are eBay, Amazon and TCMShop (mostly for American films).
  2. For British films make sure the film isn’t available on Region 2 DVD if it is available and still in-print on DVD/Blu in the UK I will not upload it.
  3. The movie was released before the year 2007 (up to 2006 is good).
  4. For non-English movies I will only upload those that are not available or out of print on Region 1 DVD, if it is available but on a non-Region 1 release make sure the label who released it it’s not listed among the blacklisted companies/distributors mentioned in Rule 6. 
  5. Make sure the film you want isn’t already available on Youtube (or if it is there it has to be a low quality copy or no subs in case of a foreign film), it takes me a lot of time to look for and upload each film and to end up seeing that it’s already up on YT it ends up being a waste of time so PLEASE check before requesting it here. Also, check out the Wanted films list, if the movie you’re looking for is listed there it means I don’t have it.
  6. NEW Last rule and probably most important one: I will NOT be uploading (and don’t insist) films where any of the studios mentioned up next have been involved in either the production or distribution of the requested film: NBCUniversal and all its subsidiaries, WarnerMedia (including everything from the pre-May 1986 MGM library), TNTHBOTurner Entertainment Networks, RKO Radio Pictures, Monogram Pictures, Cannon Group, Milestone Films, Castle Rock Entertainment, Orion Pictures, Lorimar, Gaumont, Multicom Entertainment, Big World Pictures, Pathé & StudioCanal (including Canal+, StudioCanal UK and Arthaus). To check this information you can go for example to IMDb, search for “Company Credits”, click on it and it will show you the production and distribution companies involved in the film.

1 request per user please, you may include a second film as an alternative if you think I might not have the first one.

Thanks for understanding.
Jon.

———NOW CLOSED———
Thank you for all the suggestions/requests, I am working on them while I’m writing this, it will take a while until I can get every single film uploaded on the site but I will upload all of them, well, those that don’t break any of the rules above, I have over 200 films pending to upload so I thought it was time to close this so it doesn’t keep accumulating, I don’t know when I’ll be taking requests again but probably not before I upload all these. If your comment was deleted could have been for one of two reasons, 1) don’t have it and will be added to the Wanted list 2) I do have it and was deleted to clear space so people don’t have to scroll until eternity to leave their requests.If you are anxious to know whether your request will be uploaded or not you can email me to jon@rarefilmm.com or contact me via Twitter.

    Thank you for your hard work. Amazing!

    There are several films with the legendary Jean Gabin which still have never been subtitled into English… All of these titles are available on DVD (or VHS) in Europe, but do not have English subtitles:
    “Gloria” (1933)
    “Varietes” (1935)
    “Le Messager” (1938)
    “Pour l’amour du ciel” (1950)
    “Tonnerre de Dieu” — there are DVD copies circulating, but only in very bad phonetic English (1965)
    “Pour un soir..” (1931)
    “Pour l’amour du ciel” (1950)
    “La Sang a la Tete” (1952)– very bad phonetic English-subtitled version available online
    “Coeurs joyeux” (1933) — I actually own a very good copy of this on a CD-ROM (but it doesn’t have any English subtitles)
    “La Cas du docteur Laurent” (1956)
    “Drapeau noir flotte sur la marmite” (1971)
    “Paris-Beguin” (1931)
    “Chacun sa Chance” (1930)
    “Verdict” (1974) — Jean Gabin and Sophia Loren.

    Thank you!

    Maybe there are some French-speaking rarefilmm fans who can help to subtitle some of them? (( can dare to dream!)

      For subtitles I find the best site is:

      http://www.opensubtitles.org/ followed by https://subscene.com

      If you can’t find subs in English (or your desired language) or you need to
      resync, adjust or otherwise modify them, I use very good freeware:

      http://www.nikse.dk/subtitleedit

      It will do automatic translations using Google which can range from quite good
      to somewhat comical, but mostly you get the idea. To English, I find transations
      from Portuguese, Spanish and Italian to be quite good. From Romanian not bad,
      from French not so good (I think French is much more idiomatic). From Germanic
      and Scandanavian not bad. In any case, you may not get the subtleties of the
      original, but you will understand what’s going on.

      If you are really desparate, there is a Python script which uses speech to text
      libraries to create a subtitle file directly from the film, then uses
      translation libraries (using Google) to translate them. (this part doesn’t work unless you register for a Google API key, so I use subtitleedit to do the translation as they recommend in the instructions below)
      I’ve tried it and the results are reasonable. It drops some of the dialogue but it does handle a good part of it and will give you an idea of what’s going on. Sometimes the results are pretty good and other times not so much. But it is quick (about 5m) and easy, so give it a try. If the results stink you are no worse off.

    For some reason I’ve retained the memory of a very positive review of a film called, (I think,) “Barnardo of the Mountains”, released sometime mid 1990’s. All I remember is that it was a partisan war drama so I’m guessing could be from Yugoslavia, Greece, Italy, etc.. Haven’t been able to find mention anywhere. Also just to reiterrate a request for “Les noces de papier” (The Paper Wedding) 1989 made for television Canadian film directed by Michel Brault with Genevieve Bujold. Thanks for all the wonderful work. Cheers.

    Don’t know the title about this one, maybe you can help: I am looking for a movie about a couple on the run after having committed a crime. One scene takes place on a deserted beach. The guy gets shot (by mob hitmen?) standing by the sea, while his long-haired brunette girlfriend watches from afar, sitting in the dunes. The bullets make an eerie sound on the quiet beach. The guy falls down and the waves wash over his body. I think it is a French movie, maybe Spanish, definitely European. Probably 1990s. Thanks in advance.

    The movie The Fall is based on (The Fall itself, while difficult to find, is not impossible) is a Bulgarian film called Yo Ho Ho from 1981. Can’t find it anywhere but would love to see it

    December 24, 2020

    Nice to see you back! My request, and this might be an odd choice, but the 1993 Super Mario Bros movie has to be it. It is literally not available on any streaming service. It’s not available to rent on YouTube, there is no Region A Blu-Ray (there is a Region B, but it’s unplayable in USA), and the film is not owned by any of your listed studios. It was produced by Hollywood Pictures & Lightmotive.

    • Jonathan Shapiro
      December 24, 2020

      Hollywood Pictures= Disney. This title can’t be uploaded here. It might be OOP now, but it’s extremely common

    Welcome back, again!
    I would like to see:

    FACE TO FACE (1976) Ingmar Bergman’s 177 minute 4 part television version.
    there’s a crummy copy on YouTube without English subs. and neither that original cut nor the roughly 2-hour theatrical were included in Criterion’s recent Bergman set.

    Thanks!

    Hi Jon, Great to have you back to give us some winter cheer!
    Caravan aka Caravane (1934) by Erik Charell.
    This is the version with Charles Boyer and Annabella, not to be confused with the film of the same name and year with Charles Boyer and Loretta Young.
    My alternate is the Marcel Pagnol film, Jofroi also made in 1934.
    I think the problem with both of these may be about finding find English subtitles.

    • Jon W.
      August 14, 2021

      Not subtitles for either of those, Tony, sorry!

    December 24, 2020

    So great to see the site back – thank you for all your efforts to make it better than ever!

    I’d love to see the two Chris Petit and Iain Sinclair films that form a loose trilogy with ‘Cardinal and the Corpse’ which you have. Those films are THE FALCONER and ASYLUM, both BBC productions and not available anywhere.

    The other rarity is Werner Schroeter’s TV movie version of SALOME: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0375036/?ref_=nm_flmg_dr_22

    Hello I never made any requests here before but I’m looking for various Colombian films. I’m from there and can speak spanish so I don’t need any subtitles in fact it be better without any cause it can get distracting. Anyway I have found many on youtube but there’s still many I can’t find or are on there in extremely bad quality or dubbed in english.

    The following films are the ones I’m looking for mind you all the titles are in spanish if you need an wiki or imdb page I’ll try and help you out with links to any but anyway here goes: Canaguaro 1981 (on youtube but horrible quality), La agonia del difunto 1981, El dia de las Mercedes 1985, Mariposas S.A. 1986, Milagro en Roma 1989, Con su musica a otra Parte 1983, Funeral siniestro 1977, Area maldita 1979, 27 horas con la muerte 1981, Triángulo de oro aka La isla fantasma 1984, Extraña regresión 1985 (this one is on youtube but dubbed in english), La boda del acordeonista 1986 (sometimes label as 1)coming out im 1985 or 1988), Técnicas de Duelo 1988 (on youtube but terrible quality), Pasado el meridiano 1967, Bolivar so Yo 2002 (on youtube bad quality), El embajador de la India 1986, Golpe de estadio 1998, Te Busco 2002, Todo está oscuro 1997, De amores y delitos: Amores ilícitos 1995, Ayer me echaron del pueblo 1982, El taxista millonario 1979, Un hombre y una mujer con suerte 1988, Caín 1984, Colombia Connection 1979, Pisingaña 1986 (on youtube horrible quality), and Los niños invisibles 2001.

    Sorry I asked for so many I just thought I’d take the advantage to ask as many as possible since the first time I found this site it was taken down 3 weeks later. Hopefully you can eventually find all of them. Oh by the way some of these are on youtube but not blocked in my counrty and I used a vpn and went through 40 countries but no luck with any of them but if they are in yours please let me know to see if my vpn will work if I set it to you country.

    Last but not least I want to thank you for this site and for all the uploads you do. Right now I do not have any financial way to show my appreciation and I don’t when I will have any but if I ever do I will donate as much possible to make sure this site stay up. Thank you for everything and have a nice day.

    Hi Jon,

    I’m really surprised in a positive way that there are so many people out there looking for forgotten or hard to find movies. So many requests in such a short time!

    My request this time would be:
    Kotoshi no koi / This Year’s Love (Kinoshita; 1960) [thanks to you I’m only missing two more of his movies after this!!]

    Alternative pick: Natsukashiki fue ya taiko / Lovely Flute and Drum or Love and Separation in Sri Lanka (the two remaining Kinoshita films)

    As always, thank you very much and all the best! Stay safe and healthy!!

    Hi, I would love if you could add “Bawdy Tales” (AKA “Storie Scellarate”), a 1973 film directed by Sergio Citti and overseen and written by Pier Paolo Pasolini. Alberto Grimaldi produced. It is not on video ANYWHERE, much less Region 1. I have asked a number of U.S. boutique labels about releasing it, and their answer is always, ‘We aren’t interested’. I would love to get it on the site here. Also, as a backup, I’d also like to get Sergio Citti’s “Casotto” (Beach House), with Jodie Foster, from 1976, on here. Thank you for your time.

The best copies I found were in worldscinema.org but those dickheads only upload on Nitroflare, a scummy, money grubbing site.

    Hi Jon,
    I’ve been trying to track down a 1998 mockumentary called The Thin Pink Line for some time. It’s a gay parody of The Thin Blue Line, and it features an incredible cast of comedic talent, including some of Jennifer Aniston and David Schwimmer’s earliest film appearances. As far as I can tell based on my own attempts to find it, its only home media release was a DVD in Japan some time in the mid-noughties. Otherwise, I can find no trace of it. If you were able to track it down, I think it could be a wonderful addition to the story of nineties alternative comedy.

    Thank you so much for providing this incredible content for free! I still can’t believe this site exists.

    If possible, is there any way to upload a hi-res version of Harvey Keitel’s 2006 film “A Crime”? IMDB URL is https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0489010.

    I searched everywhere and found it with great difficulty in extremely low-res (289MB) so I thought I’d request a hi-res version. Please forgive me and ignore this if I’ve inadvertently broken any of your rules — if I have, please rest assured it’s not intentional. I have the utmost respect and gratitude for you — providing us with such stellar rare content must be a feat and doing it for free is just… a rarity in itself.

    Jon, you’re doing the Lord’s work here. Seriously.

    Have you ever heard of come across ANGELO MY LOVE (1983), It was directed by Robert Duvall and it deals with the Romani community in NYC. It stars non-actors / real member of the community, including the lead who was just 13.

    The only versions on youtube are baaaaad – 360p and even 240p. There’s never been a DVD/Blu-Ray release.

    On youtube I have come across VHS copies. But more interestingly, I have found LaserDiscs. I wish I had a player! If that is something that interests you. I’m happy to purchase it as a contribution for rarefilmm, of course!

      Hey FP,
      I have a copy of Angelo My Love, will add it to the queue. It was transferred from a Laserdisc, quality is a bit better than the YT copy but not superb by any means, the guy who posted apparently knew how to make a good transfer so I don’t think it’d be worth buying a new one as it will be pretty much the same, apparently the quality issues come most likely from the master used for the LD and not from the LD itself, appaently the nitrate original of this film is lost, here’s a comment by Kent Jones on Dave Kehr’s site from many years ago:

      “A few years ago, I interviewed Robert Duvall. Alex Horwath in Vienna was looking for a print of ANGELO MY LOVE and couldn’t find one. I told Duvall and he said, “It’s on VHS.” He had no idea where the neagtive was, and that was that. Most people aren’t so cavalier about their films, but such things happen all the time. Films will now go on a never-ending migration from one element to another, but they all need someone to be paying attention to them. Who will assume responsibility for Duvall’s film if he won’t?”

It would be awesome if a copy was recovered somewhere. Thank you so much for this excellent website, keeping films alive that would likely fade into nonexistence at some point.

    • Jon W.
      August 11, 2021

      I’ll put this one up soon, it’s the uncut version in original language but the source is a screener so the Eng subs are hard to read at times, stuff like this with so much historical importance it’s what should be getting restored, some tell Scorsese about it.

    Lost and Won/Castles for Two – Marie Doro
    On Dangerous Ground 1917
    Destiny’s Toy 1916

    – The Fighting Coward 1924 upgrade Grapevine

    Best of all!

    • Jon W.
      August 11, 2021

      Hey Isaac,
      Sorry but I don’t have those at the moment but I might be able to get a copy of some of them, there’s a copy of ‘The Fighting Coward’ on Youtube, not very good quality but seems watchable.
      The Great Divide looks like Grapevine successfully raised funds for a restoration along with some other Siegmund Lubin shorts, you can pre order it on their website: http://www.grapevinevideo.com/great-divide-1915.html $20/25 for DVD/Bluray for stuff this rare I think it’s a pretty good deal.
      Thanks.

    Hi, I wonder if you can find Junji Sakamoto’s Another Battle (2000) with subtitles? The Japanese title is Shin Jingi Naki Tatakai, but it shouldn’t be confused with the 1974 movie by that title. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0269859/?ref_=nv_sr_srsg_0 (it’s supposed to be tied to Fukasaku’s ’70s series, but not in any direct way).

    Also, I believe I have one of the movies on your “also looking for” list on a bootleg DVD. I’ll try to dig it up and let you know if I do.
