The music is undeniably great and Dormer certainly captures his character's passion well, but this is a pretty paint-by-numbers biographical drama, full of standard tropes such a neglected wife/baby and the protagonist's blindness when it comes to seeing how he is disenfranchising those closest to him. A few quirks crop up but never really jive and with Dormer staunchly declaring an apolitical approach to life, The Troubles always remain in the backdrop.

Outside of a few Agnes Varda things, I can't think of a female-directed film I'd like to see more than this.

A near-masterpiece of incredible proportions. 9.5/10.
For the next cinematographer's poll, keep in mind Benoît Debie! But yeah, absolutely lovely film.

Might sound odd maybe, but if you're ever in need to watch an anime series and you want something similar to this, Haibane Renmei is a solid recommend.

A full day of some heavy subjects. All of them very good, without being outstanding, apart from Loubia Hamra that I found annoying and very poor. Letting amateur child actors shout about for the full feature run is not saying anything meaningful about the Algerian war of independence, it might even be offensive, at least I found it very childish in a most literal way.

Thanks for watching it! I just re-watched it myself and felt just as inspired by her honesty. Of course, as a writer, my favorite line was "Laughter isn't our medicine. Stories hold our cure."

33. Harriet (2019) Kasi Lemmons 7/10
Really cool to see the story acted out like this.

*34. Hannah Gadsby: Nanette (2019) Madeleine Parry and some guy but who cares? 9/10
*Re-watch and totally worth it. I think she is incredible and brave for being willing to share her pain like that with millions of people. Not funny haha, but funny make-you-feel.

35. Unseen (2016) Laura Paglin 7/10
This was just as maddening as the rape kit documentary, I Am Evidence.
Spoiler
Actually, even more frustrating because we saw in I Am Evidence that his DNA was in the rape kits that were only tested after years and years of pushing at the system and if they had been tested in a more timely manner then he may not have had a chance rape, torture, and murder dozens of women as shown in this documentary.
36. What Happened Miss Simone? (2015) Liz Garbus 8/10
I loved learning about the life of Nina Simone, the good and the bad. Liz Garbus is becoming one of my favorite female documentarians because of the stories she chooses to tell about women who deserve to have their stories told, whether they were a famous but misunderstood musician or a fifteen year old kid in juvenile detention. I have another one of hers on my list that I hope I get to soon called Lost Girls.

37. M.F.A. (2017) Natalia Leite 7/10
I mean...I get it.
Spoiler
Do I think killing rapists is good and would I encourage it? No...but I get the anger and the desire make sure they never do it again. And--you know, there's one way not to get killed in this scenario. Don't rape and don't cover up for people who do.
38. Female Pervert (2015) Jiyoung Lee 4/10
I didn't care for it. No plot and a very unempathetic, unlikable protagonist. It also felt like it was trying way to hard to be weird-cool, but mostly it was just weird-gross-weird. The one sort of interesting (though one-sided and cynical) thing I thought she did include, was a cultural critique of her own millennial generation, and a lot of things I disliked about the character she played was part of that critique, but overall it just didn't seem to accomplish much.

39. One Night in Miami (2020) Regina King 7/10
I started watching films more because Max convinced me I could learn a lot about good stories through this medium. This is not one of those good stories. There's really no plot which would normally mean it wouldn't get a very high rating from me. The dialogue is also entirely unrealistic. People don't talk to each other this way, they don't say exactly what's on their minds without holding back or there being some subtext that's unspoken. From a story and screenplay standpoint, this isn't great. It shouldn't work. But--the content of the conversations they're having redeems this from what would normally be a 4 or 5 rating for me. Were these the conversations these men actually had that night when they did meet on this date? Probably not, not in this way, not with this much honesty. But, these were the conversations that everyone else, especially those involved in the civil rights movement were having and, along with the hindsight of nearly sixty years to reflect, I think their words are really important. I think it's worth watching for those reason, especially the last ten minutes which raised it from a 6 to a 7 rating for me.

Setting out to examine Mary Shelley's personal life and possible influences on her penning Frankenstein, this biopic has an undeniably intriguing premise and Elle Fanning is fine. Over half of the film though is pure melodrama, focused on Mary's turbulent relationship with Percy Shelley. It is not until the final third of the film that Mary even pens the story. The film also has a pro-feminist slant, but one that mostly just consists of Fanning angrily shouting.

Hmm, I'd rate them pretty equal. Both I thought were decent. Mur murs for me was more about the stories of each mural, whereas Gleaners felt more politically inspired. These typical wacky moments when Varda accidentally leaves the camera running or when she pretends to catch trucks of the highway just leave me with mixed feelings. I can appreciate the humour in them and I feel that she would've been fun to be around, but I'm not sure it adds to the documentary for me.

No worries, I know that feeling all too well. Looking back at my watch history I can easily see when we had our first and I've only been watching movies on a regular basis now that our second is almost two.
Plus, I enjoyed thinking a little longer about the movies I've watched and I've had some back and forth with St. Gloede because of it. :thumbsup:

27. Les glaneurs et la glaneuse (2000, Varda)
28. Les plages d'Agnès (2008, Varda)

This one, I enjoyed a lot. This was perfect after watching so many different movies by Varda. The documentary made me appreciate her and all of her other movies a bit more. It also makes me want to (re)watch some by Jacques Demy, but I don't think he has any listings in the DtC nominees, so it'll have to wait.

83. Mustang (2015, Erguven) 8
Hmmmm...we seem to have some similar ratings on some of the movies we've both seen which makes me think I should try to squeeze Mustang in before the month ends. It is on my list.

18. Obscuro Barroco (Evangelia Kranioti, 2018) - 8

Now I've seen the second (and last) film of Evangelia Kranioti I can say she is a (probably the) big discovery for me this month! Both films swept me up and surprised me so much that I already want to rate them even higher than I do on these first watches. I think I spotted the one seen today when looking around for ICMFFF material, but I had not really heard of her or these two movies before. If they had played at the IFFR and I had seen them, I sure would have sung their praises (at least to friend in real life, I am not always the best promoter of stuff on the Internet), but looking at the posters they both premiered at Berlin.... Berlin is so close in the calendar to the IFFR that there has always been some competition, and Berlin having a higher profile means "we" (the Netherlands) sometimes don't get everything we would like... ;)
Well, you've convinced me. Obscuro Barroco is going on my growing list.
Just finished this...blew my mind. I came to film for the stories but it's amazing to me how many of my favorite films aren't great stories, they're great art. And this is one of those...a poem turned into audio and visual brilliance. There's so much to say but I'll stop here and I'll dig into my thoughts about it when I write it up for my watches in the next day or two.

only one short one today :) Debut feature of a young director. It is short but still somewhat slow moving, or the quirks lack some energy... I'd say this might be due to the inexperience. The main actress does a good job and there is a lot of potential, so I felt generous with a 7

Not quite sure why this reminded me of it, but did you ever see Crime or Punishment?!? [Tsumi toka Batsu Toka]. Bit late for this challenge probably, but good fun :)

I have not but I'll look into it. I've liked just about everything I've seen that you have on your Maximalist list.

It's certainly not the craziest/maddest film on that list, but if you want some Survive Style 5+ (light), I think you'll end up liking it. Third Window Films released the film so it shouldn't be too hard to find, and if I'm correct there's a Japanese challenge coming up in the near future :)

34. Sedmikrásky / Daisies (1966, Vera Chytilová)

Image

Honestly, Daisies was even more cinematically daring and experimental than I could remember - and strikes me as perhaps one of the finest and most "perfect" examples of a truly "free" film. I absolutely love the way it blends black and white, sepia, tints and just delicious colour photography - as well as still photographs, animation techniques and colour play - where the quality of the print can be increased or decreased - colours may be blended - and the world is always spinning, spinning, spinning.

It is a film that never truly stops, that can change second upon second - and leaves very few breaks for a breather. It is hectic, all imposing - and playful - and we have not even gotten to the "characters" - two young women who decide that as the world is spoiled - they will be spoiled - and spoil they do. The only flaw in the film - for my own enjoyment anyhow - is that they spoil just too well. They are utterly grating from beginning to end - and had it not been for the style - and the concept - not to mention the fairly strong message sending it all off - this might have been a very hard watch. But: It is not. It is utterly delightful - always reinventing itself - always alive - and never taking itself too seriously. An absolute wonder. 8.5/10.



35. Les glaneurs et la glaneuse / Gleaners & I (2000, Agnès Varda)

Image

What makes The Gleaner's & I so effective and beautiful, is its ability to start with romanticism, art - the idea of gleaning in the olden times - the paintings people may have seen - the history it is apart of - and then slowly expand the context into modern-day - and a very different world, perspective and usage. We move from idyllic farms to dumpster diving - as themes of unnecessary waste - as well as strong characters - emerge. 

The slow transition is quite wonderful, leading us on a clear string of though: - and introducing first - the most extreme senses of waste - tons of good potatoes dumped because they have the wrong shapes - anyone can be frustrated - then - seeing the people who come to pick them up from the fields - from charities to the poor - we start to follow them - and be emerged into a culture of not simply picking out what is on the ground, but what has been left behind, what has been discarded and what is literally in the trash. 

At the point we see people dragging out food and eating it - big smiles on their faces - we have been entirely eased in. But Varda is not just interested in the dumpster divers - be it for economic necessity or ideological reasons - she is just as taken in by the artists gleaning - and using what others have thrown away to create beautiful art - and to her, these two sides truly stand equal - high art and picking vegetables up from a trash can - both are gleaners - and both get to tell their story.

Environmentalism, social justice, art - the law - the history - everything ties together - and so does art - and Varda's filmmaking in itself. She finds herself gleaning  - picking images - picking belongings. As they glean from the ground or from trash cans - she gleans them - she gleans the takes. This framing makes the film not just effective, but poetical and larger than itself. Varda infuses it with joy and life - genuine excitement of what she may glean - from including a shot of a dancing camera cap to "picking trucks" as she drives by. It becomes a film, truly as the original title says, The Gleaners and the Gleaner. This is where Varda's documentaries always gain a large part of their strength - namely that they are not just about their subject, but about the creation of the film itself, and just how the two are linked. 9/10.



36. Les plages d'Agnès / The Beaches of Agnès (2008, Agnès Varda)

Image

The Beaches of Agnès, more so than any of Varda's other documentaries, put the camera on herself - and tells her story - from childhood to present day. It is a biography, a mix of memories and moments - her relationships, her thoughts, her films - and linking them together.

It is a beautiful tapestry of epic proportions - and with her lovable comic relief sidekick - Chris Marker (yes, really ) - so camera shy a cat is animated in his stead - she lays everything bare. It truly has the resonance and scope to have been her final film, but here, nearing 80, she shows so much strength and vitality - that it is clear it couldn't be.

The framing is simple - she thinks back on her life in the context to the beaches that shaped it - from childhood memories of Belgium pre-WW2, to the protograph of Ulysses she simply cannot let go (she even made a short on it), to her debut in 1955, to LA. Cinema and reality blends together as she sets in to create art - either exploring her own memories - recreating scenes from her childhood - or simply filling a street in Paris with sand and staging it as a beach - with her team taking calls as an art installation.

Just as in her other great documentaries there is a duality between the topic, and the creation of the film - but here, more so - it is not just about her past creations, but her eagerness to create more. We see her play with mirrors on the beach - we see her eagerness to hold the camera - to speak to people - to arrange things a certain way - to do more, more, more. It is this vitality, this artistic explosion - in the midst of a work that already covers more than 50 years of artistic expression - and exploring the full range of human and artistic emotions - that makes The Beaches of Agnès feel large, important - and from one person's life - universal. 9.5/10.

Kajillionaire was a wonderful mix of silliness and emotional depth. Beau Travail looked and sounded beautiful, but left me cold, probably because Billy Budd is the only thing by Melville that I recall reading and not liking.

This is a remarkably gritty and hard-hitting movie for a first feature, and while the teen protagonist is too rude and uncouth to ever be likeable, her frustration at the world is heartfelt and her dedication to her daughter shines through her bitterness. The film ends on a pretty haunting note too with some great high camera angles. Listening is a different issue though; the film is burdened by a repetitive percussion music that is too maudlin.

It's certainly not the craziest/maddest film on that list, but if you want some Survive Style 5+ (light), I think you'll end up liking it. Third Window Films released the film so it shouldn't be too hard to find, and if I'm correct there's a Japanese challenge coming up in the near future :)
Hm, I have a lot of Third Window's releases (man, I wish there were a company that cared as much about contemporary Asian cinema in the US... it can be a pain to import sometimes). For whatever reason, I haven't come across Crime & Punishment. I'll look it up though.

It's one of their earlier releases, but I only saw it recently too. Something about that movie that makes it easy to fly under the radar I guess.

Two films with strong African-American (North and South) women today. The last one being a documentary on an underground lesbian strip-club, lead me to especially unknown terrain for me. I admire it for bringing it with style and everybody involved just doing what they do, without a care for other peoples opinion. The Brazilian feature, a second from this director duo I've seen this month and a third in total, is a small chamber-piece. A drama with some scenes verging on hysterical soapiness, but one with strong performers and clever writing that brings out some humor too. Everybody has quit smoking but is dying for a cigarette all of a sudden for instance. A nice pace, some editing trickery including split screens and a simple but effective nighttime setting keeps this going and interesting throughout. It is certainly better than Ilha, close to an 8, but I think their Café com Canela (2017) spoke the most to me...

And another documentary I really loved. The beaches of Agnès was a great recap on her career as a film maker, this movie seemed to be more about her aging. The more the documentaries focus on herself, the more I like it. A great end to a long streak of Varda's. I'm happy I went on despite I didn't really love many of her movies and I'm happy I made it before the end of March.
