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.
Oh yes - the sleeping bag - that's what I meant when I wrote "jumping banana". :banana:

At least that's what it looked like to me - a gigantic banana thrown against rock. Certainly one of the wackiest moments that I have seen in a non-comedy horror film, right up there with "GARBAGE DAY" from Silent Night, Deadly Night Part 2. The scene has been uploaded to YouTube for ease of watching and some fans have even created easily searchable gifs. Not sure if it is really a spoiler, but I'll place one of the gifs I found under spoiler tags since the scene is best appreciated when one does not know what to expect. Really, I had no idea about the whole cult following that the sleeping bag scene has developed until afterwards.

Image

The most striking aspect of Maîtresse is its elaborate set design, with a normal flat turned into a mad dungeon with fluorescent lighting tubes and colourful graffiti on the walls. Then there are S&M/bondage acts we witness, all shown in graphic detail. Maîtresse lacks the verve of something like Secretary though since the protagonist barely gets involved in the S&M activities, none of which factor into the relationship between them. An interesting film, but oddly restrained.

When the best part of your film is a few seconds of a very creepy jack-o-lantern, you know you're in trouble. Which is not to say that the filmmakers don't try here, with all their oddball high/low camera angles, POV mobile shots and blaring loud music. Part of the issue that the sinister-seeming title character soon disappears off-screen as her walking dead minions start antagonising everyone, but the actress in the role is weirdly cast too. She seems way too old to be walking around with a teddy bear all day; it's a part that feels like it was written for someone half her age.

Ahahaha! Yes, I missed your banana comment... never really thought of that as a banana even though it looks almost exactly like it! Oh, that gif slays me every time... :lol:

I'm curious to hear your thoughts on that one... I watched that this month, too, and thought it was pretty awesome. Scenery was gorgeous, too.

EDIT: Of course, the moment I posted that, I opened the TSPDT thread, and saw your thoughts there... so nevermind... :whistling:

This is essentially a movie in two parts. The first 55 minutes plays out as a quaint comedy of manners with way too much talking and only occasional bright moments. The film turns quite madcap in the final 40 minutes though as the rumoured beast appears, including a black comedy laced rape scene. This final section is wildly imaginative and it is a shame that the rest of the film is not quite as well done.

Clocking in at over five hours, this is a rambling and often episodic affair, but between head-butted cats (!), lots of sexual experimentation and horse manure fights, there is nary a boring moment to be had. It is also interesting to track the ups and downs of the central friendship as class boundaries come between them. Donald Sutherland is deliriously over-the-top and unintentionally comical to watch at times. Burt Lancaster is great though as De Niro's father with a touching final scene.

While the fluid editing design here is commendable, where this experimental film gets really interesting is where Baillie starts to film sex and while we can hear the woman moaning, the extreme close-ups at hand make it hard to distinguish what is what; is that a finger, a knuckle or something else? There is also a fun semi-postmodern bit in which Baillie films a clip that someone else took of him filming with the camera staring back at another camera. What exactly this all adds up to though is hard to nut out.

A really pleasant surprise. I had avoided this film for years due to its (admittedly well deserved) reputation as something soppy and sentimental, however, the pre-disease courtship between the two protagonists is very well handled as they bond over "verbal volleyball", exchanging witty backhanded compliments and insults ("Master? I always knew you had slaves"). The film also benefits from a terrific turn from Ray Milland as Ryan O'Neal's formal father who nevertheless has more of a beating heart than his son would ever care to admit.

Hey peeps - what did you think of La Grande Bouffe? I went back and forth in my views as I watched it a couple of weeks ago but I have not stopped thinking about it since and it has grown in my estimation.

I came across this thread and looked up how I would fare in the challenge....

I've watched five features by the challenge's definition ("The Night of the Strangler," "Penda's Fen," "The Missouri Breaks," "Rejs" and of course "Ska vi hem till dig... eller hem till mig... eller var och en till sitt?") but the 16 shorts* I've watched total 315 minutes. So, I guess that's 10 features for purposes of this game.

*Rosa Canina (1975), Stolen Moments (1972), Lone Star (1975), Godzilla: Last of the Creatures (1976), Strange Codes (1972), Trip to Carolee (1973), Alternatim (1973), Zorgon: The H-Bomb Beast from Hell (1972), Selected Works: Reel 2 (1972), Selected Works: Reel 1 (1970), Roma-Brescia-Cannes (1974), Waiting for Commercials (1972), X-Tracts (1975), Selected Works: Reel 3 (1973), Selected Works: Reel 4 (1972), De fördömda kvinnornas dans (1976)

The entire plot here does not make much sense (Ringo Starr impersonates Frank Zappa while on tour for unclear reasons). The film is basically a series of bizarre incidents cut in and around live performances by Zappa's band and other musicians. Camera/lens distortion effects, out of focus shots and other experimental techniques are occasionally used to enliven the proceedings, but everything becomes repetitive and tiring quite quickly.

There are several striking images here, from scythes smoothly wielded across the screen, to women drinking ox blood in slaughterhouses, to the ominous chateau setting. The film does not quite live up to its promise of something truly shocking occurring at midnight, but this is an intriguing film nevertheless, particularly with its empowered female characters and disempowered male protagonist. Add in a thrilling final ten minutes and this is an easy recommendation.

Walter Hill (making his directing debut) places a lot of effort into the look of this film, and with detailed sets and costumes, the film captures a real flavour of the Great Depression era. Bronson is, however, saddled with a dull character with few aspirations and (his wife) Jill Ireland also pops up in a pointless romantic subplot. There is certainly something of interest here with Coburn's gambling addiction problems, but the film is always more centered on Bronson.

Hey peeps - what did you think of La Grande Bouffe? I went back and forth in my views as I watched it a couple of weeks ago but I have not stopped thinking about it since and it has grown in my estimation.
I quite liked it, beatnik, and I actually watched it because I saw it on your list. This film had been on my watch list for ages, but your viewing reminded me of it and lo and behold it's on Amazon Prime right now.
I found it at times funny, gross, bizarre and sad.... sometimes all of those things at the same time. I also thought the acting was very solid, Mastroianni and Noiret in particular. I agree with you that it has potential to stick in the brain for awhile... I only just saw it, but I could envision this happening. It's got a unique feel and definitely unique concept. And I'm sure there are political and social underpinnings that I have missed on first view as well.

Reasonably interesting documentary on the 1976 Winter Olympics, hosted by James Coburn. The film contains some breathtaking shots as the camera is strapped to front of bob sleds, skis down slopes with Coburn and so forth. The documentary oddly often becomes more about Coburn and his experiences trying out the sports than the sports themselves. Still, the innovative camerawork alone renders this worth a look and Rick Wakeman's music is a nice additional touch.

Horror film about capturing the spirit that causes one to die. Many elements do not make a lot of sense (being able to box up a spirit) and the film has too many dialogue-heavy scenes. There are, however, a lot of genuinely creepy moments in the mix, ranging from the appearances of the titular spirits to problems that arise as two men attempt near death experiences to evoke the spirits. There is some immortality debate too, but mostly confined to the second half of the film.
