Cheers for the comment impqueen, glad you like most of the films on the list so far.

Le Plaisir - A good film but not my favourite Ophuls.


May I ask what is? I think I've seen 5 of his (The Reckless Moment, La Ronde, Madame de..., Letters from an Unknown Woman, and this) and I think Le Plaisir is my favourite.



I really love Lola Montès, Madame de..., Letters From an Unknown Woman and Caught I also quite like La Ronde and Liebelei though not as much. I have a massive amount of love and a lot of admiration for The Reckless Moment and though there isn't too much difference between them, Moment appeals and is one of my Top 100 Films.


I've been meaning to see Lola Montes for a while, I've had it ready to watch for a long time. I'm looking forward to it, the standard of his that I've seen so far has been quite high.



I hope you enjoy it, Lola Montès is a fantastic film. I would like to have been able to see it on it's original release prior to it being cut up, still the restoration remains a wonderfully unique and quite beautiful melodrama.

A Scene at the Sea is pretty fucking fantastic, always tussling with Hana-bi for Kitano's best work IMO. Seems a bit off to describe his Yakuza trilogy as 'gloriously' violent, though - there's nothing glorious about the bleak, nihilistic violence in it.

Rear Window
is aces. Hitchcock on fine form.

I had completely forgotten that I had seen Moolaade. So there you go.

I have only seen Moolade on this list. It is the best movie about female circumcision I have seen. The second half is indeed very engaging, especially the final half hour. The message is very powerful, and one that can be attributed to other subjects as well, in other parts of the world

Course not, we're all aware of your love for female genital mutilation.

I'm watching Antichrist next week at the uni Film Society me and some friends run. It's to close out this term's theme.

The theme is 'balls'.

Well I missed most of them this time around because I had a show on + Film Festival, but we screened Pom Poko, Hoop Dreams, Shaolin Soccer, Royal Wedding and Lagaan. We've also screened films this year under the themes of SELF-DESTRUCTION (Four Lions, Raging Bull, Sympathy for Lady Vengeance, Downfall, Videodrome, Withnail & I, Detour) and BY OUR POWERS COMBINED (Them!, Fahrenheit 451, The Birds/Birdemic double feature, The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou and Some Like it Hot). It's been a pretty solid year.

I missed Lagaan because I was working tonight. I'll only be seeing Pom Poko and Antichrist this term (amusing because they're the two films about testicles as opposed to sports balls or parties).

85. Festen (1998, Thomas Vinterberg, Denmark)

After seeing it for the first time, I happen to share Rhubarb's opinion that this film's existence just about justifies the existence of the entire Dogme 95 initiative. That's not a slur against the other films made in this primarily-Danish cinematic movement, because "The Idiots” and "Italian for Beginners” are both excellent films, but "Festen” is head and shoulders above the rest. The story of a family that comes together to celebrate the patriarch's sixtieth birthday, which leads to one of his son's dropping a bombshell, is also the first Dogme film, and what a high standard it set. It's a film about truth and honesty, one about family, about the bourgeois nature of the upper class, and about the effect that childhood can have on the rest of a person's life. The most interesting of these is certainly the anti-upper class messages that the film sends, joining a long line of brilliant films of the same ilk, like Renoir's "The Rules of the Game” and Bunuel's "The Discrete Charm of the Bourgeoisie”. The film presents these people as more bothered about keeping up appearances than the revelation that Christian has recently revealed. The upper echelons of society are presented as casual racists, and the head of the family, Helge, simply cannot have done these things that he is accused of doing, for he is rich and respectable. As the film wears on, though, the evidence mounts up and the fact of the matter cannot be denied, leading to some really powerful emotional scenes at the film's climax. The Dogme style helps out the urgency of proceedings, providing some emphatic fuel for this single-setting story to propel itself with. It feels real and honest, which – I guess – is the best praise you could give for a film from this initiative, which prides itself on such realism and honesty. Vinerberg's direction, using handheld cameras and no additional lighting, is a revelation, placing you in the scene with frenetic urgency. The performances are top notch, with Ulrich Thomsen heading up a stellar cast as the uneasy and unsettling Christian, whilst Thomas Bo Larsen leads the support with a performance as a man who is still a boy, refusing to believe the things that his father has done whilst remaining morally contemptible throughout. "Festen” is a great film, with very few flaws, genuine emotion, and raw power.

84. Network (1976, Sidney Lumet, USA)

Perhaps Lumet's greatest achievement (yes, I have seen Serpico, Dog Day Afternoon, and the sublime Twelve Angry Men), Network is a satirical dramedy about TV and the effect that it can have on human emotion. The plot sees Howard Beale (Peter Finch, recipiant of the first ever posthumous Oscar) appointed as a prophecy-spewing madman on TV by Diana Christiensen (Faye Dunaway), who in turn is having an affair with Beale's best friend and network high-up Max Schumacher (William Holden). But that's just what's going on in the foreground of this film, because what's going on in the background is much, much more interested. Despite the clever direction and superb performances, the best thing about the film is the writing and the execution. Not only does Network provide deep insight into the every day running of a TV network in the 1970s, it is also a pointed satire against the effects of television and - most of all, perhaps - the American dream. Pointing a finger on the all-seeing, all-knowing TV, and how it has become the only source of information and education for a whole generation, Network attacks the idea of TV's influence from the inside. But the best scenes are those between network executive Schumacher and his trampled-on wife, who knows that he's had an affair but can't do anything about it, or the scenes between Schumacher and Christiensen. Not only does Max live out these deceptive events, but he narrates them - telling the truth about how predictable, banal, and unreal movies actually are. Everything that he says is going to happen, or everything that TV and film has told him will happen, doesn't. What's left is a sad, sorry mess; a broken marriage, several ruined lives, and a corpse. There is no happy ending. Things aren't wrapped up neatly in half an hour episodes. TV, unfortunately for a generation that has been brainwashed, is not the answer.
