A lot of the regulars who were the most vocal in hating it (The Sotcaa bunch) moved on from the forum (and there was at least one very public meltdown), so I think the people who loved it might have more of a voice now. I still don't think it's held in very high regard though.

Ah - but it's not 'best film' strictly but best noir - that might be quite different.

And it was also the way I ranked them a couple of months ago when I made the list, rewatches can shift positions.

If it's any help, I think it's between you and TRM for the win, and I really don't want him to get another win.

If Touch of Evil beats Double Indemnity I'm going to temp ban Matty and delete all Gimli's posts.

Just saying....

I made my selection based on the assumption everyone else was going to be a whore. But I really have no shame if I win on those terms.

Elab, did you see what BFI have got coming out over the next few months?

quote:

The BFI is to make the complete series of the BBC's classic Ghost Stories finally available on DVD this year.

These much-loved tales terrified BBC TV audiences at Christmas throughout the 1970s. Most of the instalments were directed by Lawrence Gordon Clark and based on M.R. James's celebrated supernatural stories.

With only three of the twelve BBC Ghost Stories previously released on DVD (by the BFI in 2002), the films in this brilliant series have been high on many film and TV fans' 'most wanted' DVD lists.

The films are a key influence on recent British ghost and horror films, including The Woman in Black, and have inspired many screenwriters and filmmakers including Mark Gatiss (The League of Gentlemen, Sherlock).

The first two volumes will be released in August 2012 in celebration of the 150th anniversary of M.R. James's birth. Two more volumes will follow in September, while the fifth and final volume, as well as a complete Ghost Stories for Christmas box set, will follow in October.

Volume One includes two versions of the chilling Whistle And I'll Come To You: Jonathan Miller's 1968 adaptation, starring Michael Hordern, and the 2010 re-imagining, starring John Hurt.

Volume Two includes The Stalls of Barchester (1971), starring Robin Hardy, and A Warning to the Curious (1972), starring Peter Vaughan, as well as Christopher Lee's Ghost Stories for Christmas: The Stalls of Barchester (2000).

I'd seen something about those out of print titles coming back but nothing as well put together as this. How utterly fabulous! Ta for the heads up

I see. So if I brown nose Gimli for a few weeks with a bit of Van Helsing and Ron Howard praising, I can expect a little favour in return?

...and no sig quotes from that please.

They're also going to start releasing the Children's Film Foundation stuff. The first volume is going to be called London Tales.

I might try and rent these - I've got a horrible feeling I'm going to dimly recall far more of those than I currently think I will!

It would be a short lived glory.

I won't deny, though, that the world would be a worse place without Gimli's posts. You can be a dirty fighter when you want to be can't you?

Just finally got round to watching Aguirre.

It was ok, but didnt fully hold my attention. Actually found my mind wandering off a bit during watching it.

3/5

Going to try a Kurosawa (Spelling) next.

Not sure I can promise the time for it. What sort of timescales do you normally get to watch the entries?

I might give it a try then as that seems pretty reasonable.

Still need to watch Days of Heaven too. Next time I have a free night I might try and do both if running time isnt ridiculous.

112. Days of Heaven



1978; Terrence Malick

Bill (Richard Gere) accidentally kills a man at his job in Chicago, so along with younger sister Linda (Linda Manz) and girlfriend Abby (Brooke Adams) travels to Texas where the trio get jobs as migrant workers for a rich farmer (Sam Shepard). Realising that the farmer is attracted to Abby, and that he's also dying, Bill comes up with a plan for her to marry him and inherit his fortune, but fate doesn't work out the way Bill had hoped. There's so much to fall in love with in Days of Heaven, Manz's superb narration, the sensual atmosphere, the magic hour visuals (the Locust swarm has to be one of the most astonishing sequences ever filmed), even Gere turns in a great performance. One of American cinema's greatest films, and one that feels like it could have been created in any era.


Yup amazing. Just watched it tonight.
Thats 2 out of 2 great films for Malick so far.
