02. Vidas Secas, by Nelson Pereira dos Santos (1962) 9/10

I'm so sorry about this : first I watch this film, and I love it so much I try to find more on this director, only to learned that he passed away the very same day I was watching this film.
Still, it's really a masterpiece, and I hope his films will receive exposure after the press did a few papers on him...

Typically solid Ken Loach working class drama, this time focusing on a man intent on getting enough money to pay for a communion dress for his daughter. Curiously, neither his wife nor his daughter places any pressure on him and even the local priest offers to sell him an immaculate second-hand dress, but he is too proud to accept any charity. Interesting dilemmas arise as he considers dishonest work just in order to earn the money himself.

If We Shoot All the Pictures What Will We Watch?Show

All films on the main TSP list and all first-time viewings unless otherwise noted -

1. The Last Temptation of Christ (Martin Scorsese, 1988) (8th viewing or so)
2. Xiao cheng zhi chun / Spring in a Small Town (Mu Fei, 1948)
3. Ruggles of Red Gap (Leo McCarey, 1935)
4. Louisiana Story (Robert Flaherty, 1948))
5. In girum imus nocte et consumimur igni / We Spin Around the Night Consumed by the Fire (Guy Debord, 1978) (1001-2000 list)
6. SHORTS 39+25=64 m
Elephant (Alan Clarke, 1989) 39 m
Puissance de la parole / The Power of Speech (Jean-Luc Godard, 1988) 25 m (1001-2000 list)
7. 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.

8. 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.

9. City After Dark (Ishmael Bernal, 1980) (1001-2000 list)

A big, sprawling, soap-opera-esque saga of several families and their intertwined lives, from the upper-middle-class to the struggling (most of the characters), and a few nights that will change everything in Manila. Ultimately this ends up being about the lies everyone tells to make it - a now-successful woman, wife to a big entrepreneur, turns out to have had a seedy past; several characters are in relationships but sleeping around, often with multiple partners of different genders; a man leaves his blind lover to seek his fortune abroad but it's just an excuse, etc, etc. There are so many lies big and little, so many stories here that it's going to take another viewing to sort it out, but one thing that comes across is the vibrancy of a huge and multifaceted city even though much of it's population is gripped in despair and poverty. There's hope but all the roads are difficult.

10. 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.
Here's to the fools who dream.

11. Aguirre, der Zorn Gottes (W Ger 72) - Rewatch [Double]
12. The fallen idol (UK 48) [TSP2K] - Rewatch

I've been doing a lot of rewatches this month, especially for this challenge. Last saw both of these on VHS, I think. I remember being totally confused by The Fallen Idol. Not so this time. As for Aguirre, it's certainly my favorite K Kinski role, but the gorgeous cinematography rules -- starting with that long opening shot down the mountain.

After recently being very impressed by Raining Stones, I suppose my expectations were just way too high when I entered this film. The working class insight is of course very acute but the chemistry between the leads was not quite there for me and I disliked all the scenes of them bickering. Neither are particularly likeable individuals either, which in turn makes it a little hard to care about what happens in the film. Things certainly take a memorable, gripping turn towards the end though.

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.

No, it certainly is not in either TSPDT list and doesn't deserve to be. I just forgot to cut it when I cut and pasted from my original list which was sloppy on my part. Sorry about that - I'll correct my list with my next post later today.

As amends for my goof, here's a sweet little stop-motion short on YouTube that a friend just clued me into. It was made by Tom Woodruff Jr. when he was given the chance to work with one of the original 1933 armatures from Willis O'Brien's Kong. Woodruff introduces it, but I recommend watching the clip first and then going back to his intro as he delivers a big spoiler. The clip starts at 3:26. Enjoy!

Yes, that's the least NSFW image I could find for this strange film. What exact political points Makavejev is trying to make here are vague and unclear, however, the film can sort of be appreciated as a study of twentieth century marketing of sex. The film is full of phallic imagery, golden showers, fluorescent chastity belts, etc. With so much going on, the film never once bores, but what it is all in aid of...?

Outer Space was really something else. By the end of it, I had interpreted as a film about a woman reacting to being raped with all the weird effects symbolising her state of mind. I was shocked to learn later that it had been edited from The Entity - a film I have seen, but long ago and never in black and white.

As someone who has seen Twelve Monkeys multiple times and considers it to be among the 100 greatest films of all time, it was very interesting to watch La Jetéee. The technique was pretty cool too (if I'm not mistaken, there is only one moving image in which she winks) though ultimately I prefer Gilliam's take on the story where I felt more emotional investment in the characters.

Blood of the Beasts was intriguing but hard to watch (due to the graphic animal slaughter, at times with hacksaws). What was especially interesting was seeing all the workers go nonchalantly about their business. Does one eventually become dull to such things when working in an industry for so long?

Image

Toute la mémoire du monde has some of the most breathtaking camerawork that I have ever seen (not that I would expect any less from Alain Resnais) and combined with choice lighting and music, Resnais manages to make the library being filmed spooky, enchanting and a source of wonderment at varying points.

I loved how well Meshes of the Afternoon carried a dream logic, what with its protagonist clutching onto walls that become floors and vice versa. The hooded figure disappointed me a bit; I expected more menace, but still all very cool as a fluid dream/nightmare in motion, even watching herself at times.

A Song of Love was amazingly graphic for a film made in 1950. Bits and pieces felt surreal, like as if they were workings of the prison guard's overactive imagination, but an interesting film whatever the case and one impressively not reliant on dialogue.
