I should probably have said this instead, though: even if you are a fan of "serious" cinema, it has become less surprising to me that you can like stuff like The Descent and Dog Soldiers. Not to mention Abba.



Isn't that more a case of bad taste than varied taste? In all honesty though, I'm not sure why a line has to be drawn between types of cinema. A good film is a good film anda bad film is a bad film.

Just depends on how limited your taste is. Mine isn't at all, so I'd agree, but there are people on either end of the spectrum.
I haven't updated this for a week, maybe will do so later, in order to be able to post the February summary...

Though I agree with what you're saying, I still think drawing lines can be helpful. Otherwise, my horror column would probably have had to have been named something like, "Column dedicated to films that feature stupid characters, tons of violence, lots of sex, orchestra hits and the occasional mother avenging her drowned boy by way of machete".

Actually, that's not all bad.

(If you are not talking about genres, but separating cinema into groups, forget what I've just been saying. Kind of like when you're reading PA's posts.)

I've never seen it, although they do seem to keep digging out stuff from the 30s for these multi-film sets so you never know. I got one with a Powell film in it a while back and the DVD above does say in the liner notes that it hadn't been shown again or on TV, so they are still looking.

Ok, thanks. I've been an Emlyn Williams fan since I saw They Drive by Night and I've never been able to track down that one. I really need to see The Corn Is Green as well.

I did not know he wrote that. Haven't seen it in years. It is better than How Green Was My Valley. Then again ..

For some reason his films are really difficult to find. I really want to see The Last Days of Dolwyn as well, but again it's difficult to find, like his performance as Dickens. Never mind though, King Ralph was based on one of his novels and that's easy to find.

Water (Deepa Mehta, 2005)- CAN/IND - 8.9/10

A powerful, feminist film about the repression widows had to pass (and still do) in Indian culture, with a sweet (though it turns tragic in the final act) Cinderella-like romance found in the heart of the plot. A powerful social critique, helped by lush blue-tainted cinematography, great performances, Mehta's great direction and writing and one of the most powerful final acts of the last decade.

$9.99 (Tatia Rosenthal, 2008)- ISR/AUS - 8/10

I won't lie, I am not sure what most of this film is about, however, it still succeeds in being a moving, beautifully animated, surreal joy with some really funny moments.

Hello.

Yeah.

Anyway, I may watch another movie tonight, but I'll catch up with reviews for now. Will have to be short, I'm afraid.

4. Apocalypse Now (1979, Coppola)
Theatrical cut. Whoa. A surreal and brilliant journey into the heart of darkness. Unforgettable. Not sure I'm satisfied with the pacing of the second half, but it's still amazing. The helicopter ride is pretty much the greatest thing ever.
9

15. Thank You For Smoking (2005, Reitman)
So much better than Up in the Air, because it deals with the subject matter in a much more intelligent and much less sentimental way. Brilliant script, great cast (even Holmes and Brody are funny). May be a little obvious, but who cares?
9

21. Top Secret! (1984, Zucker/Abrahams/Zucker)
It's not Airplane!, but then again few comedies are. Spoofing/referencing everything from Casablanca to Pac-Man, this is uneven, but still hilarious.
8

23. Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai (1999, Jarmusch)
First Jarmusch. Odd but cool. Putting guns in holsters like samurai swords and using cartoons to foreshadow the plot, it creates something unique. Even the rap is tolerable.
8

26. Zodiac (2007, Fincher)
Both benefits and suffers from the true story aspect. It's not that it lacks conclusion, it's just that the film has odd pacing. Gorgeously shot and well acted, but I much prefer Se7en.
8

31. The Searchers (1956, Ford)
Ridiculously uneven - goes from darker obsession to comic fist fights. Thankfully, the comic relief is actually entertaining. Suffers from a lot of the same things as most old Hollywood movies - clunky editing, intrusive scores, exaggerated acting. Wayne is surprisingly great though. Ultimately, it can't decide what it wants to be, but the cinematography at least is fantastic.

39. Les nuits de la pleine lune [Full Moon in Paris] (1984, Rohmer)
Comedies and Proverbs still getting better with each successive film for me. I still don't think Rohmer's style is for me, but taken together, the 5 films I've seen so far are better than the individual ones. Looking forward to The Green Ray.

45. American Pie (1999, Weitz/Weitz)
Yeah, I hadn't seen it in full until a week ago. Far from all of it works, and the odd maturity/immaturity mix may grate, but I enjoyed it still.

Shorts:

15. The Old Mill (1937, Jackson) {9 mins} youtube
Simple and touching. A great celebration of nature.

The Secret In Their Eyes (Campanella, 2009)
 
Again, I know. And I think I take back the 'better film' comment for A Prophet, now. On top of my other comments (about 5 pages back), had I gone on I would also have suggested that this film also represents an Argentina, stuck looking to the past, trapped by the horrific events round 'the disappeared' in the 70s and contrasts one man who can't live past that and another who finally takes the chance to look forward. Without ever making the connection overt, it feels, to me, that the local audience will see this even more clearly than we might. An important story, I think - as well as a bloody good thriller, a grand tale of love, and an essay what punishment really hurts. Superb.

Like so.

If it was impressing him, I wouldn't have put Lady and the Reaper in that position, above certain other films.
