Documentary Challenge (December 2017)

Studies of three important blokes:

22. Listen to Me Marlon (2016, Stevan Riley)
Cool stuff, definitely better than your average biodoc.

23. I am Not Your Negro (2016, Raoul Peck)
Absolutely fantastic; an "essay film" that manages to be poetic, philosophical and moving; in equal measure personal and universal. James Baldwin seems like a fascinating man.

24. Don't Look Back (1967, DA Pennebacker)
I imagine you have to be a Dylan fan to get much out of this, but if you are then it's super interesting.

56. Birthplace (1992) Poland

Sad and powerful documentary about a Holocaust survivor returning to Poland to find out to what happened to his brother and father who stayed behind when him and his mother fled. It starts off with all the villagers being really happy to see him again and know that he survived, but then things take a more sinister turn that really needs to be seen for itself. This is a holdover for next year's DTC. I don't know who nominated it, but I second that recommendation.

Welcome back! :clap:

I was going to make a joke about my score needing to be 152 rather than 52, but I probably shouldn't tease you when you're not feeling well. :P

By the way, when are you looking to post your January challenge thread? I'm all ready to go with code etc for my mine, but I don't want to open things up too early lest some participants (intentionally or not) squeeze their December viewings in. :/
Sol, I believe you are hosting the Low-Rated Movie Challenge, yes? One suggestion for a rule that has proved useful in the 13 years of the turkey challenge at IMDb is a statement clarifying what happens if a film's rating climbs above the 5.5 rating. For the challenge there, the lowest rating in the month would count for everyone, so even if a film climbed above 5.5 (or 4.9 which was the ceiling there) it is still possible for others to watch and score it if the rating was lower earlier in the month.

:cheers:

psychotronicbeatnik on Dec 29 2017, 01:37:57 PM wrote:Sol, I believe you are hosting the Low-Rated Movie Challenge, yes? One suggestion for a rule that has proved useful in the 13 years of the turkey challenge at IMDb is a statement clarifying what happens if a film's rating climbs above the 5.5 rating. For the challenge there, the lowest rating in the month would count for everyone, so even if a film climbed above 5.5 (or 4.9 which was the ceiling there) it is still possible for others to watch and score it if the rating was lower earlier in the month.
Well, it's climbing above 5.4, since the Challenge is for films <5.5, but I thought it would make sense just to go with whatever the rating was at the time that you saw the film. I do have this line in my yet-to-be-posted initial post for the challenge...
only films with an IMDb score of or below 5.4 (at the time that you saw them) will be counted in this challenge.
...but there might be a need to clarify that. Will do...

Welcome back! :clap:

I was going to make a joke about my score needing to be 152 rather than 52, but I probably shouldn't tease you when you're not feeling well. :P

By the way, when are you looking to post your January challenge thread? I'm all ready to go with code etc for my mine, but I don't want to open things up too early lest some participants (intentionally or not) squeeze their December viewings in. :/
Hah! Thanks! I probably would have noticed that, as my spreadsheet would have to be missing 100 titles, but you certainly would have worried me for a few seconds... :whistling:

And to answer your question, ideally I'd have had the thread up a day or two ago, to give people time to acclimate and ask any clarifying questions. But I should have my thread up tonight.

Sad and scary documentary about young women who used radium (for it's glow-in-the-dark properties) decades because its negative health effects were known. It's quite alarming some of the things they did with the chemicals, but so is the folly of human nature when it comes to things that we don't understand.

131. The Topp Twins: Untouchable Girls (2009, New Zealand)
A spirited doc about the lesbian, yodeling, country folk-singing, New Zealand twin sisters The Topp Twins with much time given to both their comedic characters they've played over the years on stage and screen as well as their activist efforts.

132. Doomsday Chronicles (1979, USA)
A dry, uninspired look at the various ways the world could end, from the sun burning out to atomic war to such mundane eradication as cancer and other disease.

133. Dig! (2004, USA)
Lively and entertaining...While I like both the Brian Jonestown Massacre's and The Dandy Warhols' music to some degree, I find the leads of both bands pretty insufferable, obnoxious egoists.

134a. Powers of Ten (1977, USA)
Neat!

134b. The Battle of Midway (1942, USA)
While not particularly informative, the footage Ford was able to get of the actual battle is pretty impressive nonetheless.

134c. Vzglyanite na litso (1966, Soviet Union)
For people watchers only.

134d. Weather Diary 3 (1988, USA)
Everyone should definitely watch this... I'm not being a troll at all... :whistling:

Interviews with serial killers, some of whom express disdain at being pigeonholed by psychiatrists all too eager to link their actions to past traumas. The slant of the documentary though is heavy pro-capital punishment, ruing the fact these killers will one day walk free, which is a bit hard to take since the death penalty is more of a philosophical question and the film never looks at the alternative argument. Anyway, at 50 mins long, this is at least a brief documentary.

@blocho: I watched Tower (2016) based purely on your description/recommendation in this thread. You intrigued me, so I looked it up; and based on both of you, I was super excited, as it was right up my alley. After ~10 minutes, I hated it - the real-life/animation combo was jarring, and I thought it was voice acting was the wrong choice (I wanted the actual people to tell their own stories). By ~30 minutes, I was mesmerized - the voice acting with the animation was edited in brilliantly with the archive footage to really give you the feel of being there. So glad I watched this - thanks for the rec!

US Air Force training video. The documentary goes inside a military bunker, which is really cool to see with all its hi-tech equipment and deep caverns, but then partway in the film switches to a nuclear war enactment, showing how the US would react to a Soviet attack. The enactment stuff is pretty cut and dry, though interestingly as a training rather than propaganda film, the documentary offers a down-to-earth nobody-wins approach to nuclear war.

Sad and powerful documentary about a Holocaust survivor returning to Poland to find out to what happened to his brother and father who stayed behind when him and his mother fled. It starts off with all the villagers being really happy to see him again and know that he survived, but then things take a more sinister turn that really needs to be seen for itself. This is a holdover for next year's DTC. I don't know who nominated it, but I second that recommendation.

More people need to see this one.
Sure - and it is available online with subs no less. I need to remember to include Birthplace in my 500<400 list next year.

The first third is a pretty boring history lesson but the final two thirds are a cool speculative look at where the Soviet Union's space program might lead with some of the most impressive special effects that I have ever seen in a 1950s movie.

And unfortunately I must leave things there. I totally realise that jdidaco might suddenly post two more documentary viewings to rock my boat, or edward might show up with a few more viewings under his belt, but it's less than 10 hours away from the stroke of midnight here and I must get ready for the New Year's Eve party to end all parties, topped off with however much of World on a Wire I can fit in before falling asleep afterwards.

Anyway, it's a been fun journey, I have seen a lot of great stuff and I have had the thrill of beating jdidaco. Maybe. To celebrate:

02. The Century of the Self, by Adam Curtis (2002) 8/10

Very interesting approach to the cultural history of the Western World during the Twentieth Century, by exploring the influence of Freud's theories. Brilliantly done and rich.

I'm not sure I'll pass you, Esther, but be assured I'm behind you, watching your back.

03. The Fog of War, by Errol Morris (2003) 8,5/10

What a fantastic approach to these essential historic facts, getting testimony from one of its main protagonist. McNamara is a very brilliant and complex man. Listening to him is a very rich experience, and a good approach to better understanding the Viet-Nam War...

By the way, I counted The Century of the Self as one watch, but it's made of 4 parts of 58' each. Should I count this a 4 watches instead of 1 ? That would increase my ranking considerably... :)

It's a mini-series in 4 episodes, so according to the OP you should count 4 points indeed.
