12. Suntan (2016) Greek Weird Wave
13. The Imp (1981) Hong Kong New Wave

Image

While this does not really connect the dots between the protagonist's fatherhood fears and stresses at work, this is a curious look nonetheless at a young man unsure of whether or not he is losing his mind. The film is incredibly good-looking with lots of green and red neon, plenty of fog effects and creepy elevator shafts. The final freeze-frame is excellent too and pretty haunting given how deliberately ambiguous the film makes things regarding his sanity.

14. The Club (1981) Hong Kong New Wave

Image

The first half-hour is a little dull here, largely focused on banter between the various women who work at a nightclub. Once the protagonist begins to retaliate though, the film never lets up, constantly upping the ante in terms of what is brought to each fight. Most memorable is one guy being chased by two pursuers armed with pickaxes, eventually descending into a battle with pedestal fans as weapons. The film has some neat lighting (hotel room) too.

French New Wave

20. Cleo From 5 to 7 (1962, Agnès Varda) Rewatch

Image

Cleo From 5 to 7 is arguably Varda's most structurally impressive film - depicting the real-time 90-minute journey of a woman awaiting medical results. She is restless, always moving, either on her own, in absolute solitude or with friends, acquaintances and strangers. (And yes, it should really be called Cleo from 5 to 6.30 ...).

It is divided into chapters, but not in any traditional way. There are no stark cuts - rather a text comes up - with the time in which this chapter takes place - for instance, Cleo from 5.13 to 5.18 - and as such it may be the very first film which is not only itself hyper-aware of being in real-time but wants you to be hyper-aware as well. Furthermore, it gives you a hint that something has changed, and something else will change again in 3, 5, 7+ minutes.

Image

You are there with Cleo (not even her real name) every second of the way - and besides being beautifully shot and made - it is an exercise that is thoroughly impressive in and of itself.

But let's back up a little bit - as frankly, to me, the very greatest scene is the very beginning - Cleo at the fortune-teller - for a while no faces are shown - and this is the only sequence in colour. All we see are the cards, presenting a future of change and disease. It is not only beautifully accomplished, but, it provides so much insight into Cleo's character, and key people we see throughout - it also sets up a foreboding sense of doom. The transition, or shall we sat transitions, to black and white are sharp. It is the faces. The disbelief, and the command. Cleo and the fortune-teller - and the fear and pain of illness. It is a perfect set-up, and leaves us with a fragile Cleo and a ticking clock until her worst fears may be confirmed.

Image
Image

And yet, Cleo From 5 to 7 (or again ... 6.30) is not an unnecessarily bleak, stark or cold film - far from it. There is a sense of frivolousness, even lighter touches of comedy - these 90 minutes largely consist of Cleo wanting to do or think about anything else - and taking the strip through Paris, by cab, car, bus - goes really smoothly (besides one sequence at a slightly faster frame rate (likely to ensure the real-time element overall). The character gallery and dialogue is quite strong, and give a sense of really just being in the here and now.

It is a wonderful film, though quite far from Varda's best. I was really hoping that this rewatch would push it up to masterpiece status for me - but I simply had the exact same experience as last time. I'm not quite sure what could have been done to bring it to a level similar to Le bonheur (my 2nd favourite film) - perhaps if it had a slightly harder punch - or decided to either invite more empathy for Cleo - or alternatively taken it in a more playful or more cold and mocking direction - or perhaps if it had been made more socially relevant - or maybe just changed some of the encounters - but, regardless - a great rewatch of a great film. 8.5/10.



21. Les créatures / The Creature (1966, Agnès Varda) Rewatch

Image

Les créatures is perhaps the "oddest" film Varda would ever make and confounding in a long set of ways. Luckily, the new Criterion restoration is breathtaking, and gives what was the odd one out a degree of visual prowess and life I could not have expected - turning the whole will into a positively trippy, semi-surreal nightmare that must be the closest Varda ever came to horror.

The plot is simultaneously easy and hard to decipher - so is reality and fiction. I kept wondering what made her follow up her previous successes with something this "rough" - and when I say rough I mean that she gives Godard a run for the money in terms of inserts and cuts. It is almost a little choppy - but so much of what we cut to is spellbinding - including some spectacular shots of the sea at a high frame rate.

Above anything though, what struck me, was the degree to which it reminded me of French expressionism and silent cinema - large sections entirely silent with loud, eerie, scratching music - glittering sea - long piers - and actual use of red and purple tints - which get inserted into the actual story.

Image
Image

I'm really not sure if this is a case of Varda continuing to aim for new heights, riding on the success of Cleo and Le Bonheur - or if she considered this a light effort. I see evidence of both. Structurally - rhythmically - this really is something else - but the mix of comedy is odd, Deneuve is horribly underused and the writing is thin - but then - is that on purpose? Piccoli is after all a writer - and his sloppy novel - which he describes to talking animals - YES, TALKING ANIMALS - is inserted entirely into the film's reality to the point that we don't even know what to think. 

It was really good to revisit it. The new print really elevated it, and added all the atmosphere harmed by previous releases - but, just as last time, I'm really not sure if I missed something. If there is, even more, to be discovered - and that's pretty exciting. 8/10.

Jacques Doniol-Valcroze was not only the co-founder of Cahiers du cinema, he served as the first Editor in Chief from 1951 to 1957 (when Rohmer took over). He remained as the Director of the organization after Bazin's death and was one of the more prolific directors of the French New Wave - producing 4 feature films between 1960 and 1967 (3 from 60-62) - and collaborating with big names like Jean-Louis Trintignant and even Bibi Andersson - both appearing in one of the above films.

The only issue is - he was frankly the worst director of the entire French New Wave. Let's put it like this - there's a reason no one speaks of him - and his name, so tied in with the very inception of the French New Wave hardly raises an eyebrow. This is not to say he is a bad director. That would be unkind. He was simply the least adventurous, the least exciting and all-in-all the weakest of all the Cahiers directors, with no truly distinctive style of his own - especially with his early core films.

His style could be best compared to a mix of that of Chabrol and Kast, the latter also a name generally forgotten - and he would typically start with a slightly playful/provocative idea - and continue in that track without really delivering. Barring the more Chabrolesque La dénonciation (1962) his films generally centred on love games - hell, his first two films, both released in 1960 are literally called A Game for Six Lovers and The French Game - and both are teasing, slightly lighter and slightly more vapid versions of Kast's somewhat bleaker, but still comedic love games.

Image
Image

In this set I saw The French Game, pitting Trintignant together with request (b-side) New Wave actress Françoise Brion (who Doniol-Valcroze married - she also starred in Kast and Colpi films). The setup is simply, they are both young, hot friends in the art scene. She's in love with the mysterious Juan, he's in love with her - and tricks her away on a trip to try to start a romance - all under the guide that Juan will show up. It is visually pleasant, with some steamy/intimate scenes and play - and a semi-humorous Chinese duo just hanging around and being moderately quirky in a touristy way - oh, what comedic relief. There is no spellbinding chemistry, but they do absolutely alright. Frankly, it feels closer to what Deville was doing at the time (and he's not including in the New Wave) - but oh well. Reasonably charming, well made - all that jazz - just nothing to write home about.

Image

A Question of Rape on the other hand - takes a few risks - and ends up being quite impressive. It has a degree of awkwardness too it, and an early sense of being pulpy - but once it builds up we have a tense set-up: kidnapper - kidnapped - one single location - and slight games between them. It is the first of his films shown in colour, and as with his later The House of the Bories (1970) we see signs of him finally developing more of a style - and one where he can hold tension with simple tools. This film is by no means as gross or disgusting as the title may make you think - it actually takes it all in a very different direction.

As with all of Doniol-Valcroze's films, it is a little slight, and a little awkward around the edges - but it feels more alive, more dangerous and can keep you on your toes. It also, despite the weak print (in contrast to the clear and stunning copies of his earlier works - the cinematography is always ace), a visual atmosphere that really heightens the tension and sense of unease. Bibi Andersson is also wonderful - as always, and undoubtedly elevated the material.

24. Codine (1963, Henri Colpi) - French New Wave

Image

Henri Colpi is a bit of an odd one out in the French New Wave, and this effort, almost entirely in Romanian (though apparently different language versions exist) and aesthetically feeling a lot like Eastblock films from 1-2 decades earlier, makes it an odder fit still.

Colpi started out as an editor - no not of a critical magazine - as an actual film editor. In fact he was the editor on both Hiroshima mon amour and Last Year at Marienbad, and worked with both Varda and Duras as well. His feature debut, penned by Duras (just like Hiroshima mon amour) was The Long Absence (1961): a stunning film that went on to win the Palme d'or at Cannes. It cemented him in the history books, and his close association with other Left Bank directors gave him a further in.

Codine was his follow-up, and actually starred Françoise Brion - Doniol-Valcroze's wife - albeit speaking... Romanian. It all takes place in the past. French narration sets up a childhood in Romania - and a dangerous neighbour known as Codine. It is all shot from the child's perspective, as he grows from fearing to admiring Codine - and as I mentioned earlier - wow, these shots. It really feels like strong classic child-driven Eastblock cinema.

The atmosphere is frankly great, and the story is quite well told and interesting - gaining Colpi best screenplay at Cannes. I do still think the story itself is were the film is a little lacking and too traditional - and at times it feels a little too easy. I also think the ending failed to truly incite the emotional result it was going for. All the same, quite a good film. 6.5/10.

4. WR: Mysteries of the Organism (1971) 84 min. Yugoslav Black Wave: Црни талас / Crni talas
5. Peking Opera Blues (1986) 101 min. Hong Kong New Wave: 香港新浪潮

An interesting re-watch double bill for me, WR: Mysteries of the Organism with its thesis that expressive sexuality = freedom and communism/capitalism/materialism = repression and Peking Opera Blues with its minimalist plot and wild action and comedy.

Adapting Henrik Ibsen's play, Satyajit Ray alters the material to create a fascinating look at science versus religion in a pious Hindu community. While not as effective as Steve McQueen in the 1978 film version, Soumitra Chatterjee is solid in the lead role, progressing from being humble about his findings, not wanting to be a hero, to absolutely desperate to be heard. If a bit stagebound, Ray uses a lot of interesting framing here (see above) to open things up.

Everyone Else took a long time to get where it was going, but wasn't bad. Everything that I've been watching from the Czechoslovak New Wave has held
up on subsequent viewings, so it wouldn't surprise me if my opinion of the last few I hope to get to rises.

Yugoslav Black Wave x2


25. Praznik / The Feast (1967, Djordje Kadijevic)

Image

The Feast is a large, loud, messy and high tempo psychological trip, shot in almost startling B/W and establishing from the very beginning an eerie and uncertain atmosphere. Oh, and did I mention this is a Christmas movie? (or rather - set on Christmas - there is a difference I suppose).

The titular feast is that very celebration, as in the midst of WW2 the largely untouched region of Yugoslavia, lead by a high on power sergeant - simultaneously jovial and dangerous, leads the way for a big drunken party - that all starts to go awry when to American pilots - shot down by the Germans - are discovered nearby.

The film takes increasingly paranoid turns, as the situation starts to get out of hand - and anything could happen. The starkest aspect here, solidified by the ending, is the look at who or what is really to blame - and the harsh and brutal society, eager to harm those they see as beneath them - and do what they can to "survive".  

Kadijevic masters not only the atmosphere, but the characters and the community, delivering a film that almost feels larger than life - and with a slow-brooding yet high tempo that just never seems to give an inch. You can always feel something awful is coming, and it most likely is. 8.5/10

*Kadijevic went on to establish himself as a low-key horror director, often working in TV. I'm very excited to see more of his work and have seen a lot of positive mentions for Leptirica (1973). 


26. Zazidani / The Walled In (1969, Vojislav 'Kokan' Rakonjac)

Image

Guard vs prisoner - prisoner vs. guard. The Walled In is not only the surprise sequel to Before the Truth, it is a continuation and near-perfect companion in both style and content. The only thing missing is the eerie shots of the streets and the sense of wandering. Everything else, from the feeling of displacement, uncertainty and uneasy bonds are all there - there is just much less space to move within.

The Walled In actually creates an even more intense relationship than in Before the Truth, as rather than benders and memories of an old past, this sequel creates a sense of a mental war - one where you are never sure where you are, and the loss of reality seem even further upon on. It ups the ante with games and plays once again with the sense of friendship. The stakes seem higher - and the possibility for manipulation, deceit and even insanity is striking. 

It also once more creates a sense of complete power imbalance - but here starker and clearer than before - and the entire prison system is put under assault as the ticks of absolute oppression is examined with brutal clarity - all while a relationship unlike most put to the screen seems to be unfolding in front of our eyes. 8.5/10.


27. Divlje seme / Wild Seeds (1967, Vojislav 'Kokan' Rakonjac)

Image

Wild Seeds showcases a less cinematically playful, but far more brutal Rakonjac as he presents what can best be described as the Serbian answer to the rough Revisionist westerns taking over the conversation around the world. It is effective, harsh, simple - and while the print is poor you can tell many of these shots are stunning.

Casting frequent collaborator Ljuba Tadic in the role as a deeply disturbed homicidal maniac - which may just be sent from god to clean up the village -   Rakonjac could hardly have found a better fit. There is a pained madness that is deeply unnerving, granted a little overplayed. The village itself is bleakly comical, with its violent, brutish and cruel "leaders" abusing the population -  in particular, the blacksmith turned village fool who keeps seeing "miracles".

The plot is as crude as the content, and it does feel a little too simple at times. They are just goading too much. There is the taste of black comedy, but not quite enough to justify all. There is also a troubling rape scene, where the victim all too readily falls for the rapist. While this does make it a weaker Rakonjac, it may be one of his more accessible to audiences outside of the arthouse circuit, and I could not help but compare it to High Plains Drifter, especially with its plays with potential magical realism. 7/10.


28. Cudna devojka / Strange Girl (1962, Jovan Zivanovic)

Image

I have to say that after sitting through film after film about wayward, discontent young men, it is nice to see yet another film of a wayward and discontent young woman. Though I think the film does end up framing her too much from the perspective of the man in her life, Strange Girl offers a strong set of central performances, chemistry and a love triangle/quadrangle. The filmmaking is also far more classical and clean than many of the later films - and it is easy to see a degree of familiar bond to the early Petrovic films. 7/10.


29. Vrane / Crows (1969, Ljubisa Kozomara & Gordan Mihic)

Image

Gigglingly childish, yet thoroughly mean-spirited and cruel - Crows truly gives Birds, Orphans and Fools a run for its money when it comes to fantastical bleak poverty fantasy. Few films really come close to the experience it provides, from its very first scene - where the con literally involved our lead personally clubbing to death sheep after sheep to buy that at a discount. He is part of a band of outsiders who form a kind of low-life crime gang, with escalating results. The characters are barely there, simply laughing and giggling - falling over each other and acting rashly with dire consequences - but there is a certain anti-charm to it all - a messed up ugliness that brings it all to life. Overall I think the ideas have more potential than the whole, but an interesting experience all the same. 6/10.


30. Sveti pesak (1971, Miroslav Antic)

Image

Sveti pesak is, despite some occasional striking photography, a bit of a mess. It starts out quite wonderfully, and is a fierce indictment of the Communist Party and how they punish people - but the actual scenes from the exile/imprisonment came off as incredibly flimsy and underwhelming. 5/10.


31. Dorucak sa djavolom / Breakfast with the Devil (1971, Miroslav Antic)

Image

Breakfast with the Devil may just take the title of bravest Black Wave film from Red Wheat - though we are once again examining the same relative time. Red Wheat focusing on the extortion into joining collectives, and Breakfast with the Devil followed the reign of absolute terror issued at the civilians that keep their family farms, and may not give their produce away. From basic abuse to beatings to rape and murder we follow the group (of mostly men) horrify the population - and the sympathy is entirely with their victims. 

A scene in a school, with the teacher crying because they have arrested her father and the kids cowering in front of the man ("the Devil" from the title) putting pressure on their family to give up their wheat is an absolute emotional rollercoaster. We also get a strong female presence in their boss, coming in midway and attempting to keep the men in-line, with some results. We also get a decent mix of sexism thrown into the mix - and even potential love.

There is a slight degree of sympathy for the devil as well - showing him as an example of revolutionaries of the era - who went far for a greater good - perhaps similar to how one may see John Wayne in The Searchers - and outdated, horrifying idea with a degree of honour and sorrow. Certainly not enough to save Antic from the censors or allow him to make another film. It is a great step up from Sveti pesak, but still quite rough around the edges, with both general direction, visuals and acting pulling down the potential - but this is so forceful and effective that it serves its purpose well. 7/10.


32. Tople godine / Hot Years (1966, Dragoslav Lazik)

Image

Hot Years is at its best when it puts bodies, especially faces together in great B/W shots - creating a sense of unusual intimacy and rhythm. Outside of these few scenes, especially the excellent opening, the film feels a little too cookie cutter for the black wave - both in style and content. It is perfectly pleasant, but nothing else. 6/10.

33. La niña santa / The Holy Girl (2004,Lucrecia Martel) - New Argentine Cinema

Image

Lucrecia Martel's second feature amps up the unease of The Swamp with a large character gallery - interconnecting family, friends - religious studies and a conference of doctors - to slowly open up a web of lust. At the core of it all we have a mother and daughter - or daughter and mother - and the middle-aged doctor with an eye for both. This is made more uneasy as the daughter is underage, and their encounters, mild groping on the street, uneasy sexual harassment coupled with shame, despair and even a degree of reciprocations spirals out of control as the tension builds and builds all the way up to the closing credits. 8/10.
