5. THE SONG OF BERNADETTE (King, 1943) — That was very beautiful (of course, it might annoy some belligerent atheists), a brilliant writing and cast (unforgettable Jennifer Jones as lead and Charles Bickford, Vincent Price, Gladys Cooper or Lee J. Cobb in supporting roles), I also liked the portrayal of public authorities conspiring to terminate by any means (from bullying to reviving ancient laws) the social glitch caused by the virginal apparition, not so much the suffering/martyrdom part, but that’s compulsory for Catholic narratives, I guess. 8/10

Image

6. MOANA (Clements, Musker, 2016) — A formulaic and sometimes trite depiction of Oceanic myths according to modern Disney, probably designed with Western pre-teen girls in mind mostly, I could do without the songs but at least one of the two customary pets stays away and the other doesn’t say a word (which makes it even funnier), the spirited lead girl is very likeable and the animation and colourful imagery (light, hair and the most realistic water I’ve ever seen) are simply stunning, top-notch, definitely enjoyable if you’re interested in CGI. 7/10
Plus…
1. CASH ON DEMAND (Lawrence, 1961) — 7/10
2. BUCHANAN RIDES ALONE (Boetticher, 1958) — 7/10
3. WATERLOO BRIDGE (LeRoy, 1940) — 7/10
4. LIFE IS SWEET (Leigh, 1990) — 3/10

DTC Nominees
1. Black Is... Black Ain't (1994)
2. Chilly Scenes of Winter (1979)
3. Chase a Crooked Shadow (1958)
4. I'd Climb the Highest Mountain (1951)
5. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2011)
6. Frankenstein Created Woman (1967)
7. The Unbelievable Truth (1989)
8. Dance Me to My Song (1998)
9. March of the Penguins (2005)

Image

This is very nicely shot with majestic long distance shots of the penguins waddling against gorgeous sunrises/sunsets in the background. There is some cool underwater photography too, plus we get to see the Aurora Australis in terrific shots that also show the lights reflected on penguin faces. Unfortunately, the film is less interesting when it comes to chartering the penguins' lives. Much of the narration feels repetitive and sometimes even intrusive.

3. Gohiki no shinshi (1966) — a.k.a. Cash Calls Hell 3/6, maybe 4/6

Image

A Japanese noir that is influenced by the Japanese New Wave in its stylization, using high contrast b&w images. The doom-filled plot follows a man who's about to be released from prison after killing two people, including a young girl, in a hit and run accident (played by Kurosawa regular Tatsuya Nakadai). Having lost his career and relationship to his fiance (he seems to have been interesting in her, being ex-boss's daughter, rather as a career opportunity than love) he enters and agreement with his cellmate who wants him to kill 3 people for a large amount of money without asking questions. He ends up becoming more sympathising in the would-be murder victims and interested in the reason why his cellmate wants them dead, especially after a pair of other hitmen enter the scenario

4. The Little Girl Who Lives Down the Lane (1976) 3/6

Image

Decent mystery/thriller following a 13 year old girl (played by Jodie Foster, the same year as Taxi Driver) who reclusively lives in a house and not attending school, supposedly with her father, which raises the suspicion of the landlord, a locally influencial woman and her son who is known for being a creep with a troubling interest in young girls (uncomfortably played by Martin Sheen who would shoot Apocalypse Now later that year) as well as the local police officer and a neighbourhood boy.

The Little Girl Who Lives Down the Lane is also the first movie I watched after using the random function on the list and I aim to keep doing that for half of my viewings.
Spoiler

4. LIFE IS SWEET (Leigh, 1990) — This (Leigh again) could use lots and lots of subtlety to get the same dramatic effect, and probably more depth, without making its characters look often like utterly silly and exasperating caricatures. 3/10
I have never had a bad experience with a Mike Leigh film and your thoughts on Life is Sweet left me intrigued so I decided to give it a watch!

5. Life is Sweet (1990) I have to agree with sortile9io to a certain extent here, some of the characters are grossly exaggerated, in particular Jane Horrock's incredibly irritating portrayal of a teenager suffering with an eating disorder. I get that her character is meant to be annoying but the performance could have been toned down significantly to deliver the message in a far more palatable fashion. Despite the exaggerated characters I still enjoyed much of the humour and the absurd interactions, especially those surrounding the opening of a new French restaurant - perhaps this was because Horrocks wasn't present in those scenes? A minor Leigh outing yet still a relatively easy and entertaining watch despite its obvious flaws. Leigh seems better suited to serious work than comedy in my opinion although his observational comedy is often on the nose. 2/6

6. The Tall Target (1951) A brisk and tense crime thriller set aboard a train that feels like a film noir with a hard boiled detective as the protagonist even though it's a historical picture set in 1861. The detective is trying to foil an assassination attempt on Abraham Lincoln and the film delves into the politics of the era without letting this detract from the thrill ride. It's a playful and entertaining ride from start to finish and surprisingly this was my first Anthony Mann film - I'll look forward to watching more. 4/6
Spoiler
1. Wise Blood (1979) 4/6
2. The Tall T (1957) 3/6
3. The Browning Version (1951) 4/6
4. The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1939) 2/6

Not for lists, but I would add an average to the overall values, at least for count and minutes. And still can't see the two pictures under the pair of Canon EOS.
Good idea

Average count per user
Average runtime
Average total minutes per user
Movies over xxx minutes (multiple tiers), incl. percentage
Percentage for each country
Shorts percentage
Number of unique countries, directors, movies

(mostly collecting ideas here)

A pity that ICM doesn't have an API for check counts and official list counts but maybe I'll supply that at the end of the challenge and maybe for the half time
Although for this particular challenge it would be easier because there's an icm list of all eligible entries :think:

I'm sure I'm in the minority, but something definitely didn't click here with these ones. I don't like the animation that is deliberately ugly, and with the Krysar i felt as uncomfortable as the only sober person at a family party, where an uncle is fingering grandma while everyone else is vomiting around.
Quite an imagination you've got there with the family scene... But Krysar is not ugly, it is gothic and expressionist!

Playing a character with Tourette's, Ed Norton gives a nicely non-showy performance here with his glances conveying volumes as he finds himself constantly embarrassed by his condition. The film's most fascinating element though his voice-over narration in which he eloquently describes his condition; it is a great counterpoint to how he speaks aloud. None of the corruption stuff is sadly ever as interesting as his Tourette's though and the middle section drags.

Rolf de Heer acutely captures the seeming hopelessness of the non-verbal disabled protagonist's situation here due to her manipulative caregiver who, as it is gradually revealed, has her own problems. The film has a few loose ends (in particular, who keeps calling the man) and the tonally inconsistent ending does not really stack up, but this is gripping stuff for the most part and actual cerebral palsy sufferer Heather Rose -- who co-wrote the film -- shines.

Congrats, 72. Second 6/6 film I've seen this month. :poshclap:

Pictured above: 'Flatlife' and 'Cream' - my two favourites of this selection.

Lusciously shot in shadowy black and white, Jammin' the Blues documents a music jam session. There is not a lot going on in the film beyond some catchy music and the occasional striking image, but it is fairly pleasant to watch with some nifty photographic/dissolve editing effects.

American Reflexxx has an interesting concept: stick a reflective mask on a woman in a dress and have her pretend to be Marilyn Monroe in public. How she gets treated is certainly reflective of some sick social values, but all the slow-mo, fast-forwarding and replayed footage was distracting.

Nursery Rhymes starts off as a real WTF short as a shirtless, tattooed young man standing stationary while sitting 'Old MacDonald' at the camera. Halfway into the nursery rhyme though, things really change as other characters come out of the background and the camera pans across...

For a film that is almost 120 years old, the surviving print of The Flying Train is of remarkably high quality; the vision itself looks quite contemporary/futuristic too, being a point-of-view two-minute unbroken shot from a flying train/tram, suspending from above in a railway system.

Depicting a nighttime blood sacrifice ritual, Midvinterblot is very good-looking film, full of eerily glowing fires in darkness and some great shots of flames reflected on faces. The blood part is handled really well too with acute cutaways to splatter elsewhere suggesting more than what is shown.

Animated using hand drawings, Windy Day is a lovely, borderline surreal-looking film as two imaginative girls put a play together with everything morphing around (and on) them as they dream up different things. Great voice work too with the two girls conversing realistically together.

Superimposing kissing clips from Vertigo and other classic films on top of each other, Gravity sounds like an interesting experiment on paper, but as the characters cross the 180 degree line from one second to the next, it is incredibly hard to digest. Intriguing stuff though.

Flatlife was a delight. I haven't laughed so hard at a short film in a long time. The film consists of four frames for four adjacent flats. Initially, I thought it would be distracting watching four rooms at once, but with running gags involving pandas and squashed trucks, it really works.

And just when I was going to call Flatlife the best of this batch of shorts, the television ad style Cream comes along. Insanely animated by making still photographs move, this weird sci-fi/fantasy film involves a miracle cream that does all sorts of crazy things best left unspoiled.

I picked one of the promoted films to start the day with. One of two Melville features that I still had to see, so not one of his most well regarded or most seen works. I can see a lot of quality in here, but at the same time it doesn't come quite together into a satisfying whole. I have never read anything by Simenon, but I expect this one worked better on the page. Especially in the final scenes some of the 'tortured psychology' shines through, but what we've mostly seen up till then is two morally questionable characters having a bit of a roadtrip...

Finally watched the Gerima flick I had been planning to see for years now. It did not disappoint. I like the care that has been put into the soundtrack, which plays an important role. The story that is being told about social inequality and exploitation is not new or unexpected, and for some would maybe not justify the long-ish runtime, but this is by no means a boring experience and it never gets plodding or repetitive either, it felt 'just right'.

Pictured above: 'Rejected' and 'Thunder' - my two favourites of this selection.

I may have seen Harvie Krumpet long ago, but I didn't have it checked and now I have. As creative a life story as you'd expect from the director of Mary and Max, full of "fakts".

Presented as a series of TV commercials that were ultimately rejected, the segments in Rejected quickly grow so outrageous that the pretence becomes obvious. Still, it's funny stuff.

Thunder is one of those "WTH did I just watch?" kind of things in the best possible way. Something about electrical pulses travelling around a hospital and a girl's face? Pretty cool really.

Samadhi is another "WTH" film, but a less satisfying one; some cool effects, but a much slower pace and less of a discernible narrative behind what is occurring before our eyes.

Centered on a man who discovers that he is 91cm away from himself, Skhizein is pretty interesting with some madcap shots of him driving outside cars and looking through walls.

Without a single line of dialogue, Two captures well a series of dress-up/make-believe games going on between two youngsters - one inside a building; the other on the outside.

Consisting of more live action than animation, Byt is a bit disappointing for a Jan Svankmajer short. The part where the guy gets his hand stuck in the wall is really well done though.

7. FARYAD MOORCHEHA (Makhmalbaf, 2006) — Philosophical tourism in India, somewhat unpolished portrait of a crazy landscape of holiness and poverty, you watch your wife praying while bathing in the Ganges and think that: a. the sacred waters of the river will purify her soul, clear her mind and she’ll gain happiness and the Higher Truth, or b. she’s a complete lunatic for immersing in a place that is constantly crowded with sick people, dirty beggars, stray dogs and even corpses. 6/10

8. UNA PELEA CUBANA CONTRA LOS DEMONIOS (Gutiérrez Alea, 1972) — A bit exhausting because of the 2+ hours of the film shot entirely with a shaky hand-held camera (sometimes it’s like following an improvised street performance) I had to watch in CAMRip (couldn’t find anything better) and the frequent shouting, it deals with some interesting topics in the colonial history of Cuba revolving around the struggle between the local merchants that stand in favour of free trade and a fanatic Catholic priest obsessed with heretics, demons (he performs a public exorcism), carnal desire, etc. 5/10
Plus…
1. CASH ON DEMAND (Lawrence, 1961) — 7/10
2. BUCHANAN RIDES ALONE (Boetticher, 1958) — 7/10
3. WATERLOO BRIDGE (LeRoy, 1940) — 7/10
4. LIFE IS SWEET (Leigh, 1990) — 3/10
5. THE SONG OF BERNADETTE (King, 1943) — 8/10

13. We Go On (2016)

Image

Assisted by a strong performance from Clark Freeman, this is intriguing stuff at first, especially as Freeman finds himself sifting through hundreds of responses, by video, letter and phone message regarding life after death. The film gets less interesting though he hones in on a couple of particular responders and things become very formulaic in the second half of the movie as he undertakes a ritual that allows him to see ghosts.

14. The Stoker (2010) BONUS

Image

The world of the stoker protagonist is pretty enticing here: attempting to exist in harmony and vent out his frustrations in a novel he is trying to write, but ultimately unable to keep a distance to the mob horrors afoot as they keep dropping bodies in his furnace. There are some curious ironies in the mix too, especially the local children who love looking at the flames (with no idea about what is being incinerated). I really liked this film overall.

This sounds like my kind of film, I'm planning on watching it at some point this week. If you are interested in checking out more of Aleksey Balabanov's work then I have nominated another of his films, Brat, and I'm pretty sure you would enjoy it Sol :thumbsup: - https://www.icheckmovies.com/movies/brat/

7. (BONUS GAME #1) Zero Patience (1993)

Zero Patience has to be the most lurid and raunchy musical I have ever seen, it makes Hedwig and the Angry Inch look like Singin' In the Rain. I have to applaud the creativity and the passion that is on show here even if the parade of bottoms became a little tiresome after a while (apart from the ones that sang - that was something else entirely). Not all of the musical numbers land but some are infectious and there is a huge variety in their styles and delivery which keeps it interesting. The overarching storyline about a gay flight attendant who was allegedly the first person to bring AIDS to North America was fascinating, and although the film's primary goal is to entertain - which it certainly did - I also learned a lot about a subject I'm not overly familiar with and appreciated the wry satire. This was a fun but uneven ride, that definitely deserves more attention even if I personally can't see it as being a good fit for the DTC. I would encourage others to seek it out though as this is a wildly original musical with lots of memorably outlandish moments. 2/6.

The world of the stoker protagonist is pretty enticing here: attempting to exist in harmony and vent out his frustrations in a novel he is trying to write, but ultimately unable to keep a distance to the mob horrors afoot as they keep dropping bodies in his furnace. There are some curious ironies in the mix too, especially the local children who love looking at the flames (with no idea about what is being incinerated). I really liked this film overall.
This sounds like my kind of film, I'm planning on watching it at some point this week. If you are interested in checking out more of Aleksey Balabanov's work then I have nominated another of his films, Brat, and I'm pretty sure you would enjoy it Sol :thumbsup: - https://www.icheckmovies.com/movies/brat/
Thanks for the tip. I will add it to my already extensive watch-list for the month, but I should probably mention that I didn't really respond to Of Freaks and Men, the only other film that I have seen from Balabanov.

So I finally decided on a bonus recommendation,
Masahiro Shinoda's mystery/thriller Punishment Island (1966), maybe my favourite of Shinoda
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0060867/

Seeking revenge against the guard who tormented him, a young man returns to the island where he was imprisoned in reform school. But his plans for vengeance are disturbed when he encounters a strange and beautiful young woman.
