I did wonder why you said you'd linked them and I was seeing a distinct lack of clickable stuff. I thought you'd PMd Gimli while I was writing the post!

I'm thinking this is Gimli's path into the Panic Movement. It'll be El Topo and I Will Walk like a Crazy Horse instead of Lord of the Rings and Stan & Ollie soon.

Bits of Gandahar reminded quite a bit of bits in El Topo. But it was my least favourite of the features. Gandahar that is.

I've come across all depressed now. I headed for those Youtube links but got sidetracked before I watched them by a few others vids. Then I remembered how I haven't even started going through the shorts from the 200 list last year. Add to that that I'm trying to work my way though all the the Oscar nominated animated shorts, and then the rest of the Supermans, that's a lot of watching. Then I started thinking about stuff I have of my own to watch. TV shows that have been taped for 5 or 6 years unseen, DVDs and VHS films aplenty unwatched, entire boxsets that have never seen the light of day, hundreds and hundreds of episodes of TV, and this is before I even consider things I want to rewatch. And my Lovefilm is 500+ strong.

Features:

18. Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (1966, Nichols)
REVIEW HERE

32. Annie Hall (1977, Allen)
I was going to review this, but I forgot my mantra. Seriously though, on the 2nd watch this probably got even better. Funny, inventive, has an odd charm, well shot, well acted, great stuff. Still not his best, though. 9

33. La salaire de la peur [The Wages of Fear] (1953, Clouzot)
REVIEW HERE

35. Koyaanisqatsi (1982, Reggio)
REVIEW HERE

120. Le petit soldat [The Little Soldier] (1963, Godard)
So, what's he on about? War, morality, politics, shut up and give me some face shots of Karina. The scene earlier in the apartment has some charm but mostly this is just uninteresting talk, torture sequence notwithstanding. Well shot by Cotard, though, and under all that rambling there's probably something interesting waiting to come out, but mostly no thanks. 7

Shorts:

24. The Skeleton Dance (1929, Disney) {6 mins}
Spooky and funny, almost Fleischer-esque (that's a compliment, Disney). Nicely done. 8

55. Une histoire d’eau [A Story of Water] (1961, Godard/Truffaut) {12 mins}
Frantic voiceover that goes nowhere. I don't think either Godard or Truffaut work as well in short form as they do with feature lengths. The water-filled landscape is once again nicely shot though. 7

Which was the exact point.

Where did you get English subs for this, by the way? I've never been able to find any.

Calm down Miles, I was just kidding because of the way you put your first line. Just be glad I didn't use that Anna Karina bit for a rather obvious Rawlinson-style TLC joke.

How many languages are you fluent in?

Only 3, though I'd like to learn a 4th. The thing about Le Petit Soldat was that the Algerian war aspect of it was actually far less interesting than the relationship. It's as if the crime submerged the relationship in Breathless.

I'm sorry, he's my revised review, just for you.

12. Le petit soldat (The Little Soldier) (1963, Godard, FRN) - 6/5
Anna Karina is so hot I wanna print off a picture of her and jack off to it every day. Really boring though. So many words. Every character should have been played by Anna Karina. Then she could have kissed herself. HAWT

My Karina comment merely served to emphasise how boring the film was, and that her beauty was the only thing that prevented it from being lower. Now, this:

Wow, take four words and leave out the rest of the sentence so that it doesn't make sense. That's a really intelligent thing to do when criticising a review. The entire sentence is "an oxymoronic neutral location that, ironically, all sorts of partisan espionage can take part within", and while the "ironically" is admittedly redundant, the comment is still valid and hardly moronic. Or at least, not as moronic as "War, morality, politics, shut up".

Oh, whoops, I took five words and left out the rest of the sentence. Silly me, that's a bad move. Here's the whole sentence. "War, morality, politics, shut up and give me some face shots of Karina."

#05. Late Spring (1949, Yasujiro Ozu, Japan)
After watching "Tokyo Chorus”, I was slightly put off watching another Ozu film directly afterwards (not that it was bad; read my review below for more details), but thought that if I didn't truck on with the apparently great director I would never get through his films. And so, I watched "Late Spring”, the story of a young Japanese woman called Noriko (Setsuko Hara). Noriko doesn't want to get married so that she can stay at home and look after her father Shukichi (Chishu Ryu), but all around her try to persuade her into matrimony. A film much more in keeping with the Ozu I met in "Tokyo Story” (and certainly the Ozu who influenced fifty subsequent years of 'slow cinema', the most recent example I can think of being the wonderful "35 Shots of Rum”), "Late Spring” is a slow-moving, often static film that finds elegance in the simple, often stationary nature of life. It doesn't rush itself, instead taking care in displaying the monotonous nature of every day life whilst telling its story, and – of course – it works wonderfully well. Ozu manages to find so much drama in his story, creating a truly tragic tale of a woman who is being forced to face the sadness that often comes with modern life, and one who is being constantly urged to do something that she neither cares for or believes in. The finale, breathtakingly shot by an Ozu at the top of his game, is perfect, encapsulating this tragedy, this acceptance, and bringing it to life in a scene that should be (by definition at least) joyous, but only serves to highlight the overwhelming despair of the central character. There's also the performances to marvel at, particularly the central turn by Setsuko Hara, which is as restrained and simple as it is evocative and melodramatic, delving deep into the psyche of a woman beset by conflict from every angle, worn down into a state where she accepts the very thing she is so against. Ozu-favourite Chishu Ryu is equally as brilliant, as a man with amiable intentions who ends up pushing his daughter away to a man she neither knows or likes. I loved this film, perhaps even more than I did the majestic "Tokyo Story”, and it's set me back on the right path as far as Ozu goes. 5/5.

#39. Napoleon (1927, Abel Gance, France)
As someone who (not by his own choice, I might add) dropped history before GCSE level, I can't claim to know all about Napoleon Bonaparte, the French military and political leader who shaped the face of Europe in the 18th century. The extent of my knowledge is that he was short and wore boots, and in this feature biopic, both those are true. I'm also hardly the resident know-it-all on the history of Gance's apparent masterpiece (I preferred "J'Accuse”, to be honest), but I know enough about that to know that this film that I saw, at four hours, is nowhere near the version that Gance meant us to see. Until then, though, it will do, because this film (the first of a planned six apparently, telling the story from Bonaparte's schoolboy days to his successful invasion of Italy) is a quite wonderful, epic re-telling of the early history of the French general. Epic in both intention and scope, the film sweeps from tender personal scenes (like Bonaparte's engagement or his early days as a schoolboy) to his epic battles. The (rightly) most acclaimed sequence in the film is the finale, which is shot in what Gance called 'poly-vision'. One of the reasons "Napoleon” never really received the acclaim it deserved was that it was so expensive to use three projectors to show this widescreen finale, and it really does have to be seen as it was intended. Inventive, innovative, spectacular, this final half hour is breathtaking in both its innovation and its visuals, resulting in a dazzling and quite beautiful sequence. That's not the only reason to commend the film, the character of Napoleon is expertly played by Albert Dieudonne, who is both physical and charismatic, and the character of Violine (meant to represent France's plight, with enemies both around her and within her) is very well put together. It's not quite perfect – at times it can be overly frenetic at times and the score (Carmine Coppola's, I believe) isn't really up to much – but the much awaited five and a half hour version probably will be. 4/5.

#151. Tokyo Chorus (1931, Yasujiro Ozu, Japan)
In "Tokyo Chorus”, Tokihiko Okada plays Shinji Okajima, a man who loses his job after sticking up for an aging colleague who he believes has been wrongly fired. His wife, played by Emiko Yagumo, puts on a brave face and keeps going, but when their first son (Hideo Sugawara) wants a new bike and their first daughter (Hideko Takamine) gets dysentery, the purse strings become more and more strained, as does their relationship. It's quite difficult to judge "Tokyo Chorus” as a Yasujiro Ozu film for a couple of reasons. Firstly, it's only my second Ozu film (behind his masterpiece "Tokyo Story”), and although I haven't seen that many it goes against everything that I've been told about the director. It's quite quickly paced, it's relatively upbeat, and the soundtrack is about as happy as you can get. Obviously, this isn't a bad thing, but it took me back quite a bit, and it took me a while to get into the film (well, for this reason, and because the start is seemingly irrelevant and quite unfunny). The other reason is that it's capable of being really quite inconsistent. At times, it's wonderful, particularly the scene where Shinji challenges authority and pwns his boss, shortly before getting fired. Also, the finale, where Shinji is re-united with his classmates from the start of the film, is quite funny, and kind of makes up for the poor beginning, which is outed as just an elaborate set-up for a joke in the climax. It would be condemnable if the joke wasn't quite funny. The performances, too, are quite wonderful, particularly Tokihiko Okada, who delivers an assured performance with both comic and dramatic credentials, channelling the likes of Chaplin in some scenes (which is never a bad thing). However, with these undoubted positives come some equally undoubted negatives, particularly in the sequences where Shinji gets a job as a leaflet distributor. It seems odd that pride would get in the way of potentially relieved poverty, and the way this couple snob-ily looks down on such a career is quite unsettling. There are other negatives (the son is a spoilt brat), but I don't want to dwell on them too much, because I did enjoy "Tokyo Chorus” and it hasn't tainted my enthusiasm to see more Ozu just yet. 3/5.

My Karina comment merely served to emphasise how boring the film was, and that her beauty was the only thing that prevented it from being lower.


it's LOL that you gave this a 7/10 JUST because of Karina being pretty.





So it's bad I gave High School Musical 6/10 because I've seen Vanessa Hudgens naked?

It's like reading your homework

I'm by no means an expert on Ozu's earlier work - Jasiri would be best for that I think - but I Am Born But.. generally gets the most notice I think? It's one of the links at the front of the thread too I think.
