Aguirre is obviously amaze.

You may also be surprised to know I really liked Alice in the Cities. One I want to watch again, can see it going up to 5 stars.


I remember you mentioning it. Did you ever see any other Wenders?



Nah, but I've been wanting to see Der Himmel Uber Berlin for years (I use the german title cause I can't remember the english one).
German cinema > French cinema [/sweepingstatement]

You should try them. You'll probably hate them. But you should try them.

I love Alphaville quite possibly my favourite Godard in fact it's probably his only film that I truly care for.

Allegro non troppo looks and sounds amazing.

But A bout de souffle? Pierrot le fou? Histoire (s) du Cinema?

Allegro non troppo is wonderful and everyone should check it out. Jim Davis essentially copied the Valse Triste segment for the 'Is Garfield Dead?' strip.




Pierrot le fou is a good challenger but there's something about Alphaville, it's the film I come back to more than any other.

I like Godard I just prefer a whole bunch of other directors before I get to him.
 
Rita is ace but Redgrave and her hair own Smashing , though York's moustache is distracting.

OK, trying to read that review with George Michael hugging himself to the side is very...odd.

It's more fun when you whine about it.

Plus, despite matty's flaws (he hates 3-Iron), I like him and can have some good banter with him.

Which of those Anger films would you say are the best, Rawls? I think most of those are on Youtube, so which should I spend my time on first?

11.
Andrei Rublev
(1966; Andrei Tarkovsky)




Cast: Anatoli Solonitsyn, Ivan Lapikov, Nikolai Grinko, Nikolay Burlyaev
Country: Soviet Union

Spoilers ahead

Regarded by many as Tarkovsky's finest work, Andrei Rublev is a mysterious and enigmatic tale of a minor Russian artist. Tarkovsky imagines him as a Christ-like figure, taking on the suffering of Russia through a vow of silence. Tarkovsky gives us the life of Rublev through several imagined episodes. We first see him along with two other monks, wandering and looking for work. They take shelter from the rain in a peasant hut, a jester entertains everyone gathered there, but starts mocking the monks, until soldiers come and arrest him in a brutal fashion.

We then follow Rublev as he becomes more acclaimed for his art, but increasingly shaken by the violence and conflict in the world around him. When he is forced to kill to prevent rape, he loses his spirituality and can no longer find beauty in the world. He takes a vow of silence because the horrors he witnesses take away his will to speak or create. The film explores Russia in the 1400s with Rublev mainly as an onlooker. Tarkovsky is only loosely interested in the actual life of Rublev, he's more interested in using him as an observer of medieval Russia.

The film's standout sequence is the last of the episodes, a group of soldiers search for a master bell-maker to cast a great bell, only to find out from his son that he's died. The boy lies and tells the men he has his father's skills, and through the act of a miracle is able to cast the giant bell. Rublev is so moved by the boy's simple faith that he finds redemption and his own faith is restored, enabling him to break his silence and create once again.

There's a mystical undercurrent to the film that underlines Rublev's search for spirituality. He's desperate for inner peace but is plagued by uncertainty, just as the world around him is plagued by turmoil. Rublev could easily have gotten lost in a wave of cliches about spirituality, but Tarkovsky tackles the intellect as well as the heart and gives us a dynamic and beautiful piece of cinema. Rublev is one of cinema's true works of art and one of the best films ever created about faith. It's also one of the great films about the nature and importance of art and creation, and also the effect of the environment on creativity. Tarkovsky also displays a great talent for world-building, convincingly creating a medieval world and making it feel vibrant and alive. It's the epic, and the biopic, as it should be done, where heart isn't overwhelmed by scale, and the soul of the subject is more important than the literal truth.





I love, love, love this whole sequence.

One of the greatest films of all time.

I'm getting on this fairly early, cos I've actually seen 3 of the 4 films in the list so far, and I know with a rawls list, that kind of ratio ain't gonna last...

Thus he spake, and yea, it came to pass. Verily.

I haven't seen any of the last 7.

For some reason I thought you were a big Tarkovsky fan.

Saying that, you probably really hate him now.

Nope. You must have me confused with another.
I've only seen Solaris, and I was fairly bored by that.
The shots I've seen of Stalker tickle the interest, though...

Do you have any other films to use against me for liking? It always seems to be that one, so compared to the rest of the forum I think im probably doing alright
