Shadows (1959, Cassavetes, 1st viewing)

The second Cassavetes film I've seen and I think I may have preferred it to the first, The Killing Of A Chinese Bookie. Shadows has a real relaxed and comfortable vibe to it. I also really have a thing for films set in New York which also gives it points. The other wonderful thing is despite now knowing a terrible amount about 50's New York this film is so realistic it's almost semi-documentary in style, so I never feel like it's artificially portraying the city in any form. Superb début film from Cassavetes.

Nice to come across another Cassavetes fan.
My favourite of his films is A Woman Under The Influence, mainly for Gena Rowlands' stunning performance.

I'm more of a budding Cassavetes fan [:D] and I'm planning on watching Faces and A Women Under The Influence very soon!

Cleopatra
In his succesfilm The Sign Of the Cross, Cecil B. DeMille had already colaborated with Claudette Colbert. After the succes of that film, he and the studio thought they could easily repeat that trick with Four Frightened People. Of course this was a flop. And so they came up with the idea that it was better if DeMille returned to the films of epic scale that he had done before. And so it happened. The result was Cleopatra, of course again with Colbert as the leading lady.
It was the last film that was made before the Hays Code entered film history, and that shows: lovely suggestive images and dialogues that after the introduction of the Code could`ve never been made.
It gives us a beautiful film wich can be enjoyed in more than one way. Colbert is perfect as Cleopatra , the cinematography is beautiful and the editing (especially in the "battle scene") brilliant.
Al those factors combined makes it that this combination of DeMille-Colbert is again succesfull and now can be seen as a classic.
A strong film.

7,7/10

Jeanne d'Arcs lidelse og dřd (The Passion of Joan of Arc)
Masters of Cinema has given Dreyer`s film a marvellous release. The film is made available in no less then 5 (!!!) different versions: two literally silent versions (so totally without sound), in 20 fps and 24 fps, the same versions but with newly composed soundtracks and the by Dreyer himself reviled Lo Duca versions.

This was the first time that I saw the film and so I chose to watch Dreyer`s personally prefered version: the 20 fps silent version.
You`d maybe suspect a very slow film: 97 minutes at only 20 frames per second (against the usual 24), but it didn`t feel long at all. From beginning to finish Dreyer`s camera work takes you right into the truly sad story of Jeanne D`Arc. Maria Falconetti is brilliant as the leading lady, she knows very well how to give a credible performance with wich she generates - right up until the very shocking (and shockingly visualised) ending - a lot of sympathy.

Despite the very low pace this is a beautiful, sad but also shocking film. You can quite understand why this was Dreyer`s personal favorite version to watch.
I am curious about the other versions featured in this release, but from what I`ve seen of them so far they aren`t at all as good as this version.

9,0/10

Broken Lance - I don't know, is it considered a classic? Or is anything old is a classic? Great film in any case.




Saltire -> RE: The Last Classic I Watched... (3/12/2012 9:29:28 AM)

Watched a documentary on Yesterday yesterday (the former is a TV channel [;)] ) about Kenneth Williams and its put me in the mood of going through most of the Carry On's once more - "Oooooooh Matron!!!!" [:D]

Yeah I've noticed you have been seeing them over the past few months, you can't beat a bit of the great Sid James, Hattie Jacques and Kenny Williams now and again. [;)]




Nicola1001 -> RE: The Last Classic I Watched... (10/12/2012 6:46:27 PM)

My all time favourite has got to be Carry On Camping [:D]

Road to Bali 5/10 Probably the one of the weakest Bob Hope films with very little which really work and the partnership with Bing Crosby appears to be getting a bit lazy in this sixth film in the series,

To make up for it

My Favorite Brunette. 8/10 With Bob at the top of his game.
