3. Ikiru [To Live] (1952, Kurosawa)
I'm a huge Kurosawa fan, and now that I've finally seen this, I totally understand why people call it his best work. I don't quite agree. Yes, Shimura is incredible. Yes, the script and direction are sublime in exploring perhaps the most vital question the human race have ever asked themselves - what do we live for? Yes, the cinematography is brilliant. My only complaint are the scenes '5 months later'. Apart from a few great moments (especially that scene...) they seem too melodramatic. Then again I wasn't expecting episodic flashbacks from the plot description, so it should be better the next time. And my rating, a 9, certainly warrants a next time.


Miles > Homer & Dantes





Miles dislikes There Will Be Blood, Amélie, The Simpsons, and Stravinsky. That's a whole deadly cocktail of wrongness that belies any and all possible arguments he may have in the future. That he likes Ikiru does not help matters.

I wholeheartedly approve of sticking to Precious and ignoring that ridiculous writer's self-promotion crap.



I saw the book in Waterstones yesterday. The film tie-in is called "Precious based on the novel Push by Sapphire". ?!?!?!?!?! Why is not called Push?!?! IT MAKES NO SENSE.

The book is ace tho.

I am not "the guy who dislikes Ikiru". I am "the guy who doesn't climax every time it's mentioned".

I thought it was a good film. I gave it 3 stars. I have no desire to watch it again but (general tiredness on the day making me sleepy while it was on notwithstanding) I enjoyed it while it was on. I just didn't think it was "all that". And since TRM has Ikiru-porn on his computer (it's true, I've seen it) he was distraught when I didn't immediately want to have its babies.



Disclaimer: Ikiru-porn may be barefaced lie.

I thought it just left the final two chapters. Still, it is a fantastic morose conclusion that closes the film beautifully.

I need to read the book. A friend has it in Italian so I will try to read that version.

Review here.

15. The Awful Truth (1937, McCarey)
After the disappointment of Love Affair, this is a nice antidote Cary Grant is a genius, and I haven't even seen him in that many films Dunne is also very good, and the apparently improvised script works very well indeed. 8

36. Achi-wa ssipak (2006; Jo Beom-jin)

Spoilers

Absolutely insane animation from South Korea. In the future, energy is provided by excrement and to make sure that people produce enough shit, the government invented Juicy Bars, a type of highly addictive narcotic snack. You get a juicy bar every time you shit, a chip inserted into your anus informing the government when you've earned a bar. The Juicy Bars have led to mutations among the people so that a race of sub-human, Smurf-esque creatures known as the Diaper Gang have formed. The Diaper Gang led by a ruthless dictator, are an underground cult desperate to get their hands on as many juicy bars as possible, the only trouble is they're constipated. The anti-heroes of the film are Aachi and Ssipak, a couple of street punks who plan to mess with a couple of local gangsters by kidnapping and reprogramming a porn director to enter the gangster's house, dressed as a hooker, and first attempt to seduce and then attack the mobster. The porn director, Jimmy, finds himself kidnapped again, this time by the diaper gang who discover his plan to find an actress with an 'experienced anus' who can shit several times in a day. Jimmy plans to insert chips from the anuses of several other people into this actress so that she'll get a lot of juicy bars every time she shits. The actress who passes the audition, Beautiful, is sought by both the diaper gang and Achi and Ssipak as Ssipak has fallen in love with her and Achi wants to use her to become a Juicy Bar baron. This Bakshi inspired adult animation pays homage to films from Mad Max to Temple of Doom to Misery. It's exciting, funny and pretty much the definition of awesome.

Shorts

12. Granny O'Grimm's Sleeping Beauty (2008; Nicky Phelan)
 
A seemingly sweet old granny tells the story of Sleeping Beauty to her petrified grandchild, during the narrative she casts herself as an ugly old fairy who doesn't get invited to Sleeping Beauty's christening and spends half the story ranting and raving about why she was overlooked. You can tell that the director was influenced by The Sandman for some of the visuals, and the writer thinks she's being incredibly irreverent, but the short is pretty uninspired and ends up seeming more like an outtake from an unmade Shrek film than anything else. This is one of the films currently on the animated short film Oscar shortlist, but it's far below other contenders like The Cat Piano, A Matter of Loaf and Death and Partly Cloudy, and it'd be a pretty poor year if it made the actual nominations.

Shorts

13. French Roast (2008; Fabrice Joubert)

Another of the films on the shortlist for animated short at this year's Oscar, this was an unexpected delight. A French businessman orders a coffee in a cafe only to discover that he's forgotten his wallet. He orders more and more drinks while trying to figure his way out of the situation, at the same time dealing with a persistent beggar and an old nun who may not be as sweet as she appears. A beautifully observed little short.

That was great! I don't know what else is shortlisted but I'd like this to make it through.

I'm hoping that French Roast, Cat Piano, Partly Cloudy and Loaf and Death make the final 5 (the shortlist is at 10 at the moment) Out of the other 6, there's the Granny Grimm film, which I didn't take to at all.  The other 5 I haven't seen, Runaway, which is by Cordell Barker whose shorts are usually great (Cat Came Back is one of his), Variete, Logorama, Lady and the Reaper and The Kinematograph. The Kinematograph was by the director of The Cathedral, which was ok but nothing amazing.

He has a habit of believing he can judge something without seeing it. I was surprised of how long he could keep arguing that The 400 Blows couldn't be compared to the fourth season of The Wire even though he hadn't seen the latter, especially when there were those of us who had seen both and found them comparable.

39. Separate Lies (2005, Fellowes, UK) - 3.5/5 ***POSSIBLE SPOILERS***
Separate Lies isn't a drama that promises twists or surprises. Julian Fellowes, writer of the great Gosford Park, gives us a script where the most conventionally 'suspenseful' mysteries are predictable and outed early, because Fellowes isn't interested in the crime at the film's centre - a hit-and-run on a country road that ends up killing a man - but rather in its fallout, in the mad scrabble those at the centre of it make for normalcy in the wake of a tremor that knocks everyone's secrets out of their trees. In this sense, Separate Lies is a good film - the triangle between 'proper' lawyer James Manning (Tom Wilkinson), his lovely wife Anne (Emily Watson) and the cavalier Bill Bule (Rupert Everett) is well-played, playing the romance and the tension against each other with the accident looming over it like some sort of hungry spectre, ready to devour any and all who make a wrong step. This is helped by the two excellent lead performances from Tom Wilkinson and Emily Watson, the seasoned pros doing exceptional work as the unravelling upper-class man and his repressed wife (aren't they always?). Wilkinson, in particular, is powerful, excellently conveying his character's need for decorum and propriety coming into conflict with the increasing bitterness and worry he feels as events unfold, virtually none in his favour. However, Fellowes lets his great cast down three-fold. First, Everett's role isn't as meaty and interesting as it could be, and he feels more like a third wheel in a more external sense than a third wheel in a strictly internal sense. Second, while forays are made into black comedy with the clashing of the baseness of everything erupting from the accident with the manners and 'rules' of upper-class living (the reveal that Anne is sleeping with Bill peaks with James' querying of whether Anne intends to use the plate she's using to present a platter of hors d'oeuvres; a civilised meeting between Bill, Anne and James climaxes with Bill declaring his intent to "fuck" Anne and Bill's decking him while screaming profanities), it never seems anything more than non-committal and there just in case the central narrative doesn't work, and Fellowes really could've stood to go further. Third, the story winds up in a fairly conventional manner, and the tacked on chapter focusing on "BILL HAS CANCER LULZ" could really have been done without, as it adds very little to the film as a whole. Separate Lies is an interesting and often compelling drama with two incredibly strong lead performances, but it's hard not to feel, given the talent on display, that it could have been so much more.

Paul, you bastard, you jumped ahead of me! Fear not, I shall watch the Rabbit Season Trilogy later. Our lists are gonna be so fucking similar

Now that you've started including shorts I'm ahead of you both


All three of you are fuckin' amateurs .



The inclusion of shorts - down that road, madness lies.

Also defeat lies down that road.

Because I'd be kicking everyone's arse.
