And in pointless multi-post - but fast reply is all that is working just now! I've just IMDBd and noticed it is RC Sheriff. Doubled my interest now.

Yup. It's a very tense, atmospheric piece of work. A little slow to get going, but methodical with it, building to a stunning climax. Dreamlike, in the best sense of that word. I like Denholm, he's good in The Heart of the Matter the same year, trying to get off with Trevor's wife. That's a fantastic film.

Just watched the first hour of Hoop Dreams. Then my wife came home, so American Idol is on now

Its really absorbing stuff, and a great example of how fact can be more entertaining than fiction.

Especially when the fiction is by Shakespeare. I order you to complete the film this evening.


Completely absorbing stuff. Actually I was only 40 minutes in, but I'd been distracted for the last 5 minutes and hadn't really understood why Arthur was suddenly out of school. So I went back to the start and watched it from the beginning. Its a good job noone came round while this was on, they might have worried that I'd gone catatonic, sat on the edge of my seat completely absored in the amazingly frank and comprehensive documentary, feeling each high and low. Amazing.

I got a bit of a documentary rush and also got:
- Lost in La Mancha
- For All Mankind
- Man on a Wire

Next up though Remember the Night.

Brilliant. I'm glad you found it so compelling. Note to everyone else: now it's your turn to watch it.

The Remember the Night release turned up in the DVD review section of sight and Sound this month, along with a heads up that Three Comrades is also coming that way (although I have a feeling I might have noticed that on their site before now).

18. The Crowd (King Vidor, 1928) is the pinnacle of director King Vidor's extraordinary career. Though he could turn his hand to glossy tearjerkers (The Champ), action adventure (Northwest Passage) and even big-budget studio filth (Duel in the Sun), he was at his best fashioning erudite social polemics loaded with potent symbolism and laced with irony. That could be in the guise of romantic drama (H.M. Pulham, Esq.) or groundbreaking musical (Hallelujah!), but equally as flat-out propaganda: Our Daily Bread, one of the most startlingly left-wing films ever to emerge from America, drew allegations of communism. A sequel to The Crowd, it's essentially a manual for communal farming, with some tedious melodrama slapped onto the side. The Crowd itself was made during the silent movie's last hurrah - that glorious two year stretch during which Vidor, Murnau, Lang and Lubitsch steadfastly ignored the march of time and of the talkie, creating the sorts of spellbinding, dazzlingly cinematic, technically astounding films the heavy sound-enabled cameras were about to render impossible - at least until Mamoulian's Love Me Tonight. Vidor's film tells the simple story of a young married couple, the American Dream in human form, who fall but rise again during the Great Depression. A flop on release, it's now among the most treasured and admired of all American films, and with good reason. Tragic leading man James Murray is simply spellbinding as John Sims, who's trying to beat the crowd - the vast throngs of identikit workers milling around the metropolis - but finds his work ethic can't match his ambition. Eleanor Boardman is heartbreaking as his wife, who sticks by John even as her family, and the wider world, seeks to bring him down. It's a desperately sad film, but stunningly effective, with Vidor's expressionistic style rendering timeless the realistic story.
 
Favourite bit: *SOME SPOILERS* Murray's been laughing at a guy who's a walking advert - dressed as a clown, juggling - but now he really needs a job... *END OF SPOILERS*
 
See also: Hallelujah!, Vidor's 1929 musical with an all African-American cast, is a great piece of work and one of the few sound films from '29 I've seen that aren't dreadfully stilted, as filmmakers struggled manfully with the new technology. Terrific songs, too. H.M. Pulham, Esq. is a very mature and intelligent movie, especially by Hollywood standards, with Robert Young's finest performance. Check out the director's 1955 Western, Man Without a Star, too. That's a stunning, one-of-a-kind allegorical Western, with Kirk Douglas sensational as the tortured ranch hand who sees the fencing off of the West as the death knell of his freedom. He falls in with naive, impressionable William Campbell – a younger brother substitute – and the pair get work on the Triangle ranch. When wealthy scruple-vacuum Jeanne Crain turns up to make a quick buck off the land, Douglas splits, setting in chain a series of events that lead to murder and the symbolic destruction of Campbell's innocence. Then, with barbed-wire spreading like a rash across the green lands, our hero wakes from a two-week drunk at Claire Trevor's bar to strap on his six-shooter... Nostalgic, thoughtful, intelligent and funny, it's a prototype Monte Walsh, and a remarkable film. It's shot like a dream too. Incidentally, the star that Douglas is without is not a sheriff's star, but one in the heavens he can follow. Vidor also shot the sepia scenes in The Wizard of Oz (most of the best bits, then), including 'Over the Rainbow'.




SPOILERS

I watched this yesterday. I think the best compliment I can give it is that normally I find with silent films that either the pacing of the film or the soundtrack will make parts of it a slog to get through. In fact, as much as I do really like what I have seen from silent cinema, it is only really with the slapstick comedies and the student prince in old Heidelberg that I havent had this problem somewhere. The crowd though has joined that list. There is just something so charming about both of the two leads that makes the build up of the relationship such easy viewing, and is what makes the second half of the film so heartbreaking.

The other thing I really like about this film (and the latter silent films) is how fluid they are with the camera movements. For example, the tracking shot of John and the child on the railway bridge, the movement into the office to see the workers at their desks (I can fully understand why Wilder wanted to use this shot in the apartment as well ), the movement used for the final shot of the film (surely the films greatest moment?) or even the movement across the street following the cars.

Anyway, great pick, and its going to be pretty high in my favourite silent films.

Apart from the inexplicable loss of Cry Danger (), which other ones have dropped off the list? I think that's about 20? (I'd be non-lazy and look at the last list but it's not as simple as dropping the bottom bit - especially with the big jump of films like Ghost World).

Cry Danger just missed the cut last time, as well, though I think I had it in the two I did before that.

Pickup on South Street dropped off, I Know Where I'm Going, The Red Balloon, She Wore a Yellow Ribbon, Confessions of Boston Blackie, La Terra trema, The Edge of the World, Peeping Tom... They're all still amazing, but it'd be boring if everything stayed the same.

Absolutely - I only use the reference to my old old list because trying to come up with a new 100 would be so much work

Oooh... Up... now I'm into guessing territory... It's a Wonderful Life, Shop Around the Corner, Blimp, Casablanca, Le Doulos.

Amelie, maybe? Lawrence of Arabia? No idea.

I've only got the latter on video (which is about $8 on AMazon plus probably at least double on shipping) but I'm sure it was on youtube. Problem is I can't work out how to sort out the backup from my old harddrive to tease out my firefox back-up file! But I'm positive it was there.

I've got Louisiana Story on Region 1 from Home Vision, but I've just looked and it's out of print now. There was a French Region 2 box-set too, though one of the films is dubbed in French with no subtitles. If you've no luck, perhaps check out Flaherty's similarly extraordinary Man of Aran while you wait for a re-release.

I came looking for this thread to tease you, didn't realise it was updated and on the first page. I hadn't actually realised how much of a leap Ghost World had made over the years since the last list.

Yeah, I've always liked it, but I rewatched it at the start of this year and just fell for it all over again, only more so. This is the (very short) review from February:

*FILM OF THE YEAR SO FAR*
Ghost World (Terry Zwigoff, 2001)
- You can take your Juno, your Scott Pilgrim, even your Heathers, and chuck them in a skip, because Ghost World just does it all so much better. Well, all of it that's worth doing. I'm beginning to think this melancholy, bitingly hilarious crystallisation of teen ennui might be the only film I'll ever really need. (4)

I've got it at #1 for the year (obviously), though we watch Remember the Night every New Year's Eve, so it'll finish in second place.
