Directors' Filmography Challenge (Ongoing 2017)

#1

Post by clemmetarey » January 2nd, 2017, 1:00 pm

Welcome to the Directors' Filmography Challenge 2.0 ! Here's how it works:

Participants comes up with a list of 12 directors they want to work on. This will be an individual list, so only the one who picked it will be able to work on him. You don't have to pick them all right away, but it is encouraged to pick at least 8 at first.

General Directors will be the ones all of the participants or a majority have decided to work on. Once he's moved there, it leaves a free spot so the participants can pick up a new one for their individual lists.

Every month, I will randomly pick a director from each list, these will be directors that becomes general for a month only, so everyone can work on them.

Rules:
- A feature film (Anything over 40 minutes) counts as one entry
- A total of 60 minutes of short films count as one entry
- For Mini-Series (40 minute episodes or longer) each episode counts as an entry.
- For Mini-Series with shorter episodes, the 60 minute rule applies.
- Rewatches allowed.
- Challenge runs 2017.

This actually works perfect for me 'cause I was planning to make a list like this to work on this year anyhow. Mostly these are directors with a lot of films on my watchlist (Bergman, Chabrol & Hitchcock are the 3 with the most, while Aldrich was surprisingly joint 4th).

I'll aim to watch at least 5 from each over the year.

Done, thank you for the links.

Regarding the general director thing, shall we say a minimum of 3 nominations is required ?

#1 Bilder der Welt und Inschrift des Krieges (1989, Harun Farocki) 8
A seemingly random montage of seemingly detached sequences that revolve around the question of “[h]ow to react to the camera?”, the “interplay of preservation and destruction”, testimony of Auschwitz, concealement and revelation, inscriptions of war, imprinting and reproduction/witness, exploration and enlightenment, and so on. Relentlessly mechanical and fragmented, Farocki’s essay film is unbounded and penetrating.

1. The Manchurian Candidate (Frankenheimer, 1962) Rewatch 9/10
Better than I remembered. Paranoid thrills, with a splendidly weird undercurrent

2. Carrie (De Palma, 1976) Rewatch 8/10
Probably 15 years since I saw this last. The film holds back on any real gore/thrills for much longer than most modern horror films would dare but Sissy Spacek carries it (badum) before it unleashes in that masterful climax which still packs a real punch even if you know what's coming.

01. Werner Herzog - Lo and Behold, Reveries of the Connected World (2016) - 6/10

It's all fine, there's nothing bad here, but it's lacking in that which makes Herzog's best docs so great. There is no fascinating character like Timothy Treadwell or Dieter Dengler, no great photography as in Lektionen in Finsternis, no mad penguin scene that stays with you after the credits roll. Herzog tries to shove in some existential insight every place he can, but it all feels a little thin.

1. Faces (1968) 6/10 Cassavetes
The Cassavetes's films I've seen so far all had great camerawork, and this one is no exception since it was amazing. However, there's something that leaves me cold, that doesn't make me care about what's going on on screen.

2. What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? (1962) 7/10 Aldrich
Great performances by the two leads (especially Daivs). It does have a Misery vibe to it even though I think this one is better. The horror tag is a little extreme for me.

will get onto some new explorations soon, but quite enjoying starting with some rewatches. Can't say this is an absolute personal favourite but it's a quality film all round.

3. Harakiri (1919) 5/10 Lang
Very forgetable film.

4. Yôjinbô (1961) 8/10 Kurosawa
A great writing, I think I still prefer Eastwood's version though.

5. Fury (1936) 7/10 Lang

6. Husbands (1970) 5/10 Cassavetes
Still not the movie that will make me like Cassavetes's style.

Will be working on this as well. First 7:

Paulo Rocha
Howard Hawks
Brian de Palma
Jean Renoir
R.W. Fassbinder
Masaki Kobayashi
João César Monteiro

Kobayashi's films are terribly difficult to come by in Portugal so he'll be the hardest. Other than that I guess this will be achievable, I'll be aiming at 4 from each one.

6. 52 Pick-Up (Frankenheimer, 1986) 7/10
both Crimes of Passion & 52 Pick-Up are pretty good bits of 80s sleaze. The Boy Friend had some okay musical numbers with weird asthetic but too long and messy overall.

bit too many long & difficult-to-read handwritten intertitles, struggled to stay with this one.

8. The Last Hurrah (Ford, 1958) 7/10
good lesser known Ford with Spencer Tracy in fine form.

Quite similar to L'année dernière, only I prefer this one.

02. Werner Herzog - Into the Inferno (2016) - 7/10

Herzog's best film in a while.

03. Frederick Wiseman - Adjustment and Work (1986) - 6/10

It's interesting to see how compassion intersects with exploitation, but I can't say this one had the same effect on me as Wiseman's better efforts.

04. Hsiao-hsien Hou - The Time to Live and the Time to Die (1985) - 6.5/10

Shit, this was not the masterstroke I was expecting. I'm probably alone in thinking so, but I found this to be clearly weaker than A Summer at Grandpa's.

05. Jonas Mekas - Reminiscences of a Journey to Lithuania (1972) - 7.5/10

Good shit! My first foray into Mekas and I really dug it. Don't know how well this kind of thing will work
for his substantially longer films, but I guess we'll find out soon enough.

Don't worry, nominations needed to be made before the beginning of the month when it was a monthly thread. Now everyone can join anytime ! And you can post here everything you've watched since the beginning of the year, I'm not keeping a score board or something similar.

06. King Vidor - Street Scene (1931) - 7/10
07. Claude Chabrol - Les biches (1966) - 6/10

A slightly too tepid slow-burning love and jealousy thriller. There are some great scenes here and there, but on the whole it's a little clumsy.
