Jeff Lieberman derives several creepy moments from his bald cast members acting strangely with bizarre facial expressions in this paranoia thriller. The film never morphs into a particularly tight satire about drugs, politics or hair loss though, despite these all being key plot ingredients. I liked the music score, and bits and pieces of film certainly work, but this is nowhere near as accomplished as Satan's Little Helper - the film Lieberman is best known for nowadays with good reason.

19. Up In Smoke (1978)

I was in the right frame of mind for this. Found it OK, but didn't like it all that much.

20. The Spirit of the Beehive (1973)

Watched this a couple days ago. While I found the film visually stunning, I just didn't really get it or care - I definitely tend to struggle with films with child protagonists, and this was no exception. Still loved the cinematography, though. Worth a watch for that alone.

21. Snoopy Come Home (1972)

Well, after the festivities yesterday, I came back to the forum, and threw this on in the background. I've given them a try, but I just don't like Peanuts. The films, the comics, the TV shows, etc. I find them all boring.

22. Hospital (1970)

Wiseman is a bit hit and miss for me. When his fly-on-the-wall style works, I think it works great - and I thought it worked really well in Hospital. Contrasting that slow detached view with the hubbub and stress of a hospital I think gives insight into how medical professionals have to think and behave, with that cool calm detached feeling. I quite enjoyed it.

11. Millhouse: A white comedy (71)
Leftist documentary about Nixon's pre-Watergate career. It's been on my NF queue for yonks, and I figured it was time I watched it - didn't like it much, tho there were some neat effects here and there. Having watched The Post earlier this week, I'm surfeited with Tricky Dick.

A better Jeff Lieberman film (after seeing Blue Sunshine). The film is beset by stereotype supporting characters and the protagonists are not terribly interesting themselves, but the film has a juicy premise with worms rebelling against those who have been experimenting on them. The shocks and scares are generally effective too with some great Rick Baker effects as the worms creep under human skin, voyeuristic worm point-of-view shots and a whole sea of worms late in the piece.

This was excellent: a quirky black comedy from William Castle without the need for any gimmick effects. While not exactly made in good taste, there are several deliciously wacky and near surreal moments as the protagonist reanimates and controls (like marionettes) the corpses his boss and his relatives and nobody realises anything is amiss despite them moving in mechanical ways. Marcel Marceau shines in a dual role here and the actress playing his underage girlfriend was great too.

Adapted from a successful stage play, this disappointing film is extremely dialogue driven, full of dull monologues as lead actress Glenda Jackson addresses the camera and rambles on about topics as diverse as mortality, religion and identity loss in marriage. 90+ minutes of her yapping away are a little too much to take, though there are admittedly sporadic moments of relief as one of the suitors, played by Trevor Howard, takes over the narration.

All first time views unless stated:

8: The Rendezvous (1972) 10

Slithering up to the women on the train, Ken'ichi Hagiwara gives an incredibly unsettling performance as “Burglar”,that keeps the film on-edge for the whole the run time,due to Hagiwara’s spider-like flinching making it unpredictable for when he will spin out. Attempting to remain silent as Burglar tries starting a conversation,Keiko Kishi gives a redefined performance of “Woman on parole”,whose nervousness is held with great delicacy by Kishi. Spending large parts of the film in silence, Kishi and Hagiwara use incredibly subtle changes in face and body language to cast across the faces of the duo of them each entering the others personal space.

Stealthily wrapping round the film with a heartbreaking scene on a bench, the screenplay by Shirô Ishimori, (inspired by an earlier work from Ji-hyeon Kim)makes the journey as rewarding as the destination, with the underlying psychology of the Thriller giving a tension to the characters. Peeling open events that led to Burglar and Woman on Parole meeting on the train,Ishimori balances the flashbacks giving background info on the plot,and an emotional depth, from what Burglar and Woman decide to withhold from each other.

Backed by a haunting score from Miagawa Yasushi, director Kôichi Saitô and cinematographer Noritaka Sakamoto give their train journey an incredible earthy atmosphere of extended takes snapped by jump-cuts, elegantly-held close-ups on Woman on Parole’s face,and a shining water colour palette. Taking great care over the placing of the couple, (and the “Supervisor” watching over them)Saitô masterfully uses symmetry shots to subtly match the couple up on their brief encounter.

In a noticeable departure from the previous two movies, Michael Apted does not stick to scripted questions here and instead lets his subjects talk for minutes on end, probing as he goes. This in turn makes the documentary feel more real, but it is not an overall improvement. The film clocks in at twice the length of 7 Plus Seven due to all the unscripted questions and there is a limit to how interesting it is to hear the kids ramble on unrestrained about their lives.

Dismissed by some as softcore porn, Borowczyk certainly includes a jarringly noticeable number of shots from beneath the waste of his actresses here. There are also some odd touches (counterfeit money; a nosey landlady) that simply come off as weird. This is a refreshingly different sort of love story though, with tinges of guilt and regret. With lots of mobile camerawork, it is also very lusciously shot.

I loved the sets and locations here, with much of the film taking place in labyrinthine tunnels underneath a convent. The possession scene is also deliciously wacky. The vast majority of the film though is spent on a priest and mother superior performing an elaborate exorcism - something that soon turns repetitive with lots of screeching and screaming and hysterical nuns rolling about on the ground. Not quite to my taste.

And It Was a Little Bit FrighteningShow
All first-time viewings unless otherwise noted.

1. Blue Collar (Paul Schrader, 1978) (cinema, 35mm)
2. The Landlord (Hal Ashby, 1970) (cinema, 35mm)
3. Car Wash (Michael Schultz, 1976)
4. In girum imus nocte et consumimur igni / We Spin Around the Night Consumed by the Fire (Guy Debord, 1978)
5. The Driver (Walter Hill, 1978)
6. Tinimbang ka ngunit kulang / Weighed But Found Wanting (Lino Brocka, 1974)
7. Frenzy (Alfred Hitchcock, 1972) (re-watch, probably 4th or so)
8. Le magnifique (Philippe de Broca, 1973)
9. Hair (Milos Forman, 1979) (1001-2000 list)

Long story short: love the music, like some of the performances, don't much like the film. Something I'd planned on watching for a long time - the rock musicals of the 70s are a blind spot for me, and I love musicals more than most around here I think, so I'm finally slowly going through them, though it will continue to be slow as I'm not liking them for the most part (Saturday Night Fever is a huge exception). Somebody, probably Rosenbaum, wrote that this hippie musical seems to come from a conservative viewpoint, and while I don't know that I'd agree with that (the "straight" folk in the film aren't presented in much better light than the long-hairs), it certainly isn't very sympathetic to hippie/drug/rock&roll culture. And while I know it's a musical and you have to accept a certain amount of narrative shorthand to fit in all the songs, the character arc for John Savage's Claude just comes off as incredibly stupid to me - only somebody who has never met a conservative white boy from the midwest would believe it.

But Treat Williams is pretty good and shows huge charisma, and it's easy to see why he became something of a star for the decade after this; and I do love the music, especially "Aquarius" and "Good Morning Starshine" even if the 5th Dimension's single version of the former is much better. So very mixed overall.

10. Mary Tyler Moore Season 5 Episodes 17-18 (1975)
11. Mary Tyler Moore Season 5 Episodes 19-20 (1975)
12. Mary Tyler Moore Season 5 Episodes 21-22 (1975)
13. Mary Tyler Moore Season 5 Episodes 23-24 (1975)

I had dim memories of watching this show as a kid - I was 9 when most of season 5 aired - and in memory it always ran a distant second to The Bob Newhart Show but really I knew I wasn't fairly rating it, as little remained in those poorly-working neurons. So when the star and producer of the show died last year I took it as an opportunity to catch up and have been slowly going through the series - and I was probably wrong. I'd have to watch Bob again to be sure, but this strikes me now as probably the best American sitcom of the 70s - not that I know all of them, but it's an era I know better for sticoms than any other. What makes the show is first and foremost the cast, and first and foremost among that cast is Edward Asner as Lou Grant, who I think might be the best character in an American comic show, period. Asner can do so much with the smallest of gestures that on those occasions when he erupts (which are often) it's all the more shocking and funny, because he's actually more intimidating with a glare, so you can't help but be amused when he's actually shouting at someone. Like a terrier. And the writing is consistently good and much of the workplace interaction (more than half of the show) still doesn't seem dated, though Mary's love life often does come across as very 70s.

The fifth season improves on the first four overall by giving Mary a little more spine and having her neurotic blabbering - amusing usually but sometimes too much - cut down a little, and by the addition of Betty White as a regular character, and there are still a few episodes with Chloris Leachman this year though none with Valerie Harper. Highlights from this batch I'd say are episode 17 "The System" in which Ted proves to be a genius at gambling on football, to the severe consternation of Lou, and episode 23, "Ted Baxter's Famous Broadcasters' School" about which nothing needs to be said if you're at all familiar with Ted's character or the show generally. I will say that this episode offers a nice instance of an element that MTM used sparingly but well, the situation in which one non-regular cast member embarrasses the whole group and sort of takes over the episode. Moments like this look forward to shows like Seinfeld I think, where a slightly off character with one weird trait can be used to build a whole episode around.

14. Un homme est mort / The Outside Man (Jacques Deray, 1972)

Featured in Los Angeles Plays Itself, one of the films by "tourists". This is your basic gritty 70s crime-thriller, with Jean-Louis Trintignant in L.A. to perform and assassination, and finding out that it's not as simple a job as he'd been told, and of course also finding out that there are crosses, double-crosses, and lots of beautiful women who may or may not be femmes fatales to further trip him up. Trintignant is pretty good in a detached sort of way, and you can't fault the rest of the cast - Angie Dickinson, Ann-Margret and especially Roy Scheider as a rival hit-man, but really this is a film to see for the city, for the seedy side and occasionally high life in the city of angels. Not really a great film, and not really surprising in it's denouement, but for city-lovers it's a must, and there are a couple of pretty solid chase sequences in case you get bored also.

15. The Man Who Would Be King (John Huston, 1975) (3rd or 4th viewing)

Every time I see this I think, this is going to be the time it all clicks and I finally admit that it's a GREAT movie and not just a GOOD one. Well, it didn't happen this time. I suppose it's some unease with the way colonialism is dealt with (or not) here, and I guess I just don't like the final act of the film all that much, when it gets more "serious" and dark. The fun parts are so fun that I suppose I just want it to keep going that way. But it is a glorious film for Connery and Caine doing what comes naturally for them.

16. Tout va bien (Jean-Luc Godard/Jean-Pierre Gorin, 1972) (1001-2000 list)

Somewhat mixed feelings here; I generally love Godard, even his more experimental, non-narrative and difficult work, and I never find any of his stuff worthless, so there are things to admire here - many references, often funny, usually coy, occasionally overt, to his earlier work, self-abnegating portrayal of the artist in middle age by Yves Montand in a great sequence where he just addresses the camera and suggests that selling out and doing commercials is a more moral choice than making conventional films (perhaps a dig at Truffaut here as well), the conversations between Montand and wife Jane Fonda that recall Le mépris and Une femme mariée among others, the bold uses of primary colors, the great couple of very long shots that end the film...but overall, a little bit of a disappointment. The arguments - mostly about union and labor early on, then seguing into art and finally May '68 - come off as fairly prosaic and simply phrased, and the filmmaking is (apparently deliberately) not nearly as exciting or beautiful as in the earlier films. Still very worth seeing for me but probably only for serious Godard lovers when it comes down to it.

17. Time After Time (Nicholas Meyer, 1979) (8th viewing or so)

I just love this film and am still rather surprised that it languishes in the 0-official-check universe, especially given the vast number of vastly inferior science fiction films that are on multiple lists. Sigh. Memory: I saw this in the fall of 1979, not long before my 14th birthday and around my brother's 12th, with him on the biggest screen in the multiplex we had here, and there were 2 other people in the room. And it only played a week as I remember and we probably saw it on a weekend matinee. Something didn't go right with the marketing/release/whatever here, though it has developed enough of a cult rep over the years to get a TV series last year (even if that also failed). Anyway, talking about the plot at all for this is a spoiler, so if you haven't seen it and like any of the cast or time travel generally, this time-travel obsessive can only warmly recommend it. One thing I noticed on this view is that Miklos Rózsa's score quotes Herrmann's Vertigo not once but several times, and also that the credits on the film itself don't mention that it's filmed in San Francisco! Just Burbank! Weird. Also, the BluRay release isn't one of the best around - no extras apart from commentary and trailer, and the picture really doesn't look all that robust or sharp.

All first time views unless stated:

9: Someone Is Bleeding (1974) 8

Pouring the Film Noir excellence of his 1962 title Le septième juré over Giallo ice, writer/director Georges Lautner reunites with juré cinematographer Maurice Fellous to effortlessly swig across genres,with Lautner crystallising their Thriller with the Giallo stylisation of rapid fire zooms,shining razorblades and pristine whites casting an icy atmosphere. Ending the mystery with a gunshot of Noir tragedy, Lautner dices the mystery with suspenseful first-person tracking shots which circle around each suspect.

Currently the lone French adaptation of a Richard Matheson book, the screenplay by Lautner drills seeds of doubt over the identity of the killer by gripping ambiguity over the reserved feelings of Femme Fatale Peggy Lister,and the wrestling for her attention between Marc Rilson and François Rollin.Giving him and his then-girlfriend the lead roles as producer, Alain Delon and sexy Mireille Darc give very good performance as Rilson and Lister,with Darc walking Lister round in a dream-like state, and Delon giving Rilson a brittle compassion over finding that someone is bleeding.

1. Le Distrait 6/10 I don’t enjoy Pierre Richard as much as some, but this was moderately entertaining.
2.Le Petit bougnat 6/10 The things I see for Isabelle Adjani. She was a teenager, about 14 or 15, playing a 13 year-old (13 and 1/2 in fact). It’s not tremendous, but it’s okay.
3. Sur un arbre perché (1971, Serge Korber) 6/10 The “joke” gets old really quickly, but the presence of Geraldine Chaplin was enough to make it worthwhile.
4. Sérieux comme le plaisir (1975, Robert Benayoun) 5.5/10 This is kind of a cheap film, but at least it has Jane Birkin and a small appearance from Serge Gainsbourg.
5. Piège (1970) - weird, experimental French film that I lost patience with over time, even though it was so short.
6. Lotte in Italia/Struggle in Italy - 1971 - One of Godard’s “boring” films was streaming on MUBI. I’ve been struggling to watch this for the past couple of weeks, but it’s dry. Finally, it was almost leaving MUBI, so I finished it. The dialogue is in Italian, and explained in French with a voiceover by Anne Wiazemsky.
7. In girum imus nocte et consumimur igni (1978) Triple (also TSPDT challenge) - Really boring essay film. :(

Shot in 2.35:1 widescreen, Prophecy looks great with magnificent natural vistas and the occasional artistic shot, such as flames reflected in a pair of sunglasses to look like glowing eyeballs. Between a jumping banana that eventually explodes (!) and an axe/chainsaw fight, the film is not short on memorably outrageous moments either. The movie meanders all over the place though with its famous giant bear only appearing in the final 35 minutes.

Better late than ever... Here I come !

01. Tourist Trap, by David Schmoeller (1979) 6,5/10

Average slasher, with telekinesis and dolls as a twist...

02. The Sentinel, by Michael Winner (1977) 7,5/10

A solid horror flick, with a great cast and a dark atmosphere... I might raise my rating on a rewatch...

Shot in 2.35:1 widescreen, Prophecy looks great with magnificent natural vistas and the occasional artistic shot, such as flames reflected in a pair of sunglasses to look like glowing eyeballs. Between a jumping banana that eventually explodes (!) and an axe/chainsaw fight, the film is not short on memorably outrageous moments either. The movie meanders all over the place though with its famous giant bear only appearing in the final 35 minutes.
How'd you like the sleeping bag scene? I rewound that piece like 3 or 4 times... laughed every time.
