I had a friend who saw this at the Film Festival in Wellington a couple of years, and she said it was one of the worst films she had ever seen. If I remember her comments correctly, she said it was "two hours of shots of doors".

I have faith in the man who made Werkmeister Harmonies and Satantango. Your friend is clearly wrong.

Also, I have a feeling chris has has not fallen in love with Pasolini's work.

Shorts

41. Rhapsody in Rivets (1941, Friz Freleng)
A construction foreman on the site of a new skyscraper (The Umpire State) conducts his workman to the tune of Liszt's Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2, hammer, nails, drills and saws playing the music in perfect time. What is it with this piece of music that lends itself to cartoons? There are about 6 others I think of. Anyway, it's brilliant idea that never quite works as well as it should, but there are some excellent moments, such as the octopus bricklayer or the mouse using a massive sledgehammer.

68. Bolero (1992, Ivan Maximov)
Odd. Very odd. But also quite endearing.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HdOWqQbdOR0


82. Wind Along the Coast (2003, Ivan Maximov)
Also odd, but not half as endearing.

And rarely have I been introduced to a director via a work that was so awful. The odds are not in favour of improvement.

You did pick his most controversial and divisive film. It's like starting to examine Spielberg's work, start The Twilight Zone segment and then refuse to see anything else.

And awful? You like Dan Brown. Argument invalidated.

UPDATES!

Toy Story 3
- 4/5

It's a quality film as we've come to expect from Pixar (as long as it doesn't involve ants or cars). A fitting end to the trilogy which while rehashing some old ideas, shares all its positive qualities and it also adds some endearing new characters to the mix and a surprisingly dark third act (which before said, is nowhere as dark, traumatizing or sad as Watership Down, Wall-E or The Secret of NIMH). It's not as good as Wall-E or Up, but few things are.

The Crime of Padre Amaro
- 4/5

Engaging, interesting, impressively directed and acted film about corruption and hypocrisy in the Catholic Church. It can be too plodding for its own good and a subplot involving a priest aiding a rather dubious faction doesn't seem to do much, but great direction from Carrera, intriguing plot and some truly fantastic acting keep it interesting.

Animal Crackers- 3/5

I have only seen two Marx Brothers films, this and A Night at the Opera, but while A Night at the Opera was a consistently funny and almost touching film, this features some killer lines, set pieces and dialogue, mostly, if not only, when Groucho, and less so, Harpo and Chico are on screen (a scene between Groucho and Chico is an treasure) but pales in everything else, with a flat romantic angle, a lacking plot and some musical numbers which only lengthen the running time.

Candyman- 3/5

Oh I enjoyed this. A fantastic villain who only appears in short, memorable, a surprisingly decent lead performance by Madsen, an incredible soundtrack by Philip Glass and strong direction do more than enough to pardon the weaker acting by the supporting cast and that cheat of an ending.

Raising Arizona
- 5/5

SECOND. BEST. COENS. COMEDY. EVER.

I know! I liked it, it was entertaining which is more than can be said for the A-Team, which was poorly directed, had rubbish CGI and not one stand out action scene. Copley and Wilson were very good though, and there was some funny bits.

The Man from London (2007, Béla Tarr)


I had a friend who saw this at the Film Festival in Wellington a couple of years, and she said it was one of the worst films she had ever seen. If I remember her comments correctly, she said it was "two hours of shots of doors".


Funny, I don't remember any doors especially.  And to think this is Tarr-lite.  I wouldn't recommend her any of his other films.

quote:


Also, I have a feeling chris has has not fallen in love with Pasolini's work.


No I haven't.  There's a little playfulness in there somewhere that I kind of like but I'm just not rolling with this man's humour at all (well in the case of Arabian Nights, The Canterbury Tales and The Decameron anyway).  Every scene just seems geered towards showing some penis or trying too hard to be raunchy, but even that is handled in a terribly wooden way.  Salo was void of anything insightful, interesting or for that matter shocking.  Yes some of the acts were sickening in themselves but there was something about the way Pasolini shot them that made them so obviously fake.  The youth that are taken to the chateau were ridiculously placid about all the horror that was going on around them, it was like Pasolini does Bresson.

quote:


I'd add Chris for that ranking for The Haunting too - it's one of my favourite horrors.


Ouch! Sorry but there were so many clichés.  It started to pick up towards the end but it was a bit late by that point.

You've got them the wrong way around.



Your face is the wrong way round.


That doesn't even make any sense.

68. Bolero (1992, Ivan Maximov)
Odd. Very odd. But also quite endearing.

82. Wind Along the Coast (2003, Ivan Maximov)
Also odd, but not half as endearing.

I quite like Maximov's films. There is a very unique style there. My favourites from what I have seen are 'the additional capabilities of the snout' and '5/4'. I think both are probably on youtube.

I didn't realise you did your degree in Comeback Skills at Fail University. Did you minor in Loser Studies, perchance?
