Hi all,today I watched 4 films:

All first time viewings unless stated:

19: Repeat Viewing: Le Silence de la Mer (1949) 9

First time trio-

20: (RIP Truffaut) Vivement dimanche! (1983) 8

Making his last ever image being children playing around/kicking a camera lens, (which could be seen as a metaphor of the New Wavers kicking cinema in whichever direction they wanted) film maker François Truffaut is joined by long-time co-writers Suzanne Schiffman & Jean Aurel,and cinematographer Néstor Almendros for a slick final return to Film Noir. Displaying his love of Hitchcock, Truffaut and Aurel conclude their experimentation of tracking shots with elegant pans along Vercel’s safe-house,and walls glazed in sharp black and white shadows building anticipation to brief glimpses of the killer.

Going for a much lighter mood than his past Film Noir’s, Truffaut cross-stitches Noir with a “Caper” lightness, reeling in visits to the cinema, a cheeky elf outfit for Becker and Georges Delerue’s score giving a jaunty swagger to Becker and Vercel. Spreading photos of the crimes Vercel is accused of across the screen, the writers do extremely well in their adaptation of Charles “Dead Calm” Williams book never feeling heavy,with the dialogue having the sparkling quality of the Caper genre,which allows for the couples run to solve the case to have a cheeky playful mood. Joining her husband for the second,and final time,Fanny Ardant gives an excellent performance as Becker,with Ardant injecting a wry sense of humour in Becker’s exchanges with Jean-Louis Trintignant’s stressed-out Vercel, and showing a real relish in wearing Truffaut’s last Femme Fatale jacket.

21 (RIP Robert Bresson) L'Argent (1983) 8

Struggling to fund the movie since he began writing the adaptation in 1977, writer/directing auteur Robert Bresson proves that it was worth the effort with a highly distinctive,minimalist appearance. Updating Leo Tolstoy’s short story to the present, Bresson spirals down with Yvon Targe in icy, neural mode shots of inanimate objects and stilted glances towards the corners of rooms feeling the screen with eerie, muffled sounds, and the pushing of falling objects into frame drawing a sketch of Targe’s latest unfortunate incident.

While following Bresson’s method of the actors being models,Christian Patey brilliantly takes advantage of this in his performance of Targe, who becomes increasingly passive to every bad turn set off from the fake note,to the point where Patey ends Targe looking off with hollow eyes. Updating Leo Tolstoy’s short story, the screenplay by Bresson makes each drop Targe takes into this merciless world be turned from Targe’s first fold of money.

22: Arctic Heart (2016) 6

Moving from shorts to feature films for the first time, writer/director Marie Madinier displays an impressive level of ambition, but an awkwardness in the execution. Starting with scientists looking at mice have sex,the screenplay by Madinier struggles to find a consist tone, via a tender Indie Drama exchange between
Christophine and Quignard, (played by a sweet Charlotte Le Bon & Guillaume Canet) being undermined by the very next scene hitting a sex Comedy gag. Frosting the screen up with Claude Miller’s former cameraman Pascal Marti ,Madinier appears more sure-footed in the directing style,with the human sex scenes having a breezy mood,and a tasteful use of CGI warming the Arctic heart.

The film's messages about harmony and irrational fear may be a little blunt, but there is something charming in how the filmmakers depict a non-romantic budding love between the lonely title characters here and the detailed mouse and bear worlds look magnificent, even with the hand-drawn animation process. There are a couple of superb surreal dream sequences too as well as some amusing Keystone Kops antics, the which of which become incredibly fun as both bear and mouse cops interact.

Crooked cop Noiret's philosophy is interesting here, not wanting too many arrests lest it look like his area is more dangerous than other areas, and of course the occasional bribe on the side does not hurt. There are a few amusing bits as Noiret handballs self-harming suspects to his straight arrow new partner and belittles his efforts to convict. The fun only really begins though when he manages to convince his new partner to see things his way since they make far better crooked partners than odd couple partners.

Week 3(ish) Stats and Challenge Update

Users
Through the 3rd week of April, we've had 32 participants in the French Challenge! psychotronicbeatnik is continuing the dominance, and is now up to 78 watches. Four others are over the 30-watch milestone, with hurluberlu, allisoncm, Ivan0716, and sortile9io clocking in at 38, 33, 33, and 30, respectively.

Ivan0716 and psychotronicbeatnik are leading in challenge strategy, having watched 11 and 9 Triples, respectively, making progress on all three challenges with one film. psychotronicbeatnik is leading in the Doubles category, with 29.

Leader board is up-to-date and maintained in the first post.

Years
Films watched so far have ranged from 1904 to 2018, covering 97 unique years in film. 1971 is the most-watched year with 18 watches, followed by 1970 and 1975 with 17 watches each. It's nice to see decent representation throughout cinema history; unsurprisingly though, the 1970s have been well-represented, though modern films are popping up more and more. Here's a list of watch count by decade:

Decades List

1900 13
1910 19
1920 8
1930 26
1940 15
1950 28
1960 51
1970 133
1980 46
1990 27
2000 45
2010 70


Spoiler Tag of the Week
Thank you all updating spoiler tags to amuse me, though I think I made a mistake of doing this during the French challenge, as I'm relying pretty heavily on Google Translate to understand what the hell y'all are writing. This week's prize goes to sol, for jamming 3 film references into the spoiler tag.

All first time viewings unless stated:

23: 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.

Merci. :$

Of course, the challenge now is to come up with something even more inventive before the final update. I was going to go with Slap Her, She's French at one point, but ultimately decided that the film is not well known enough and might cause offence.

As per Laloux's earlier Fantastic Planet, the animated landscapes are terrific: perfectly otherworldly and mysterious with tangerine sunsets, glowing fruit, creeping vines and so on. The film also raises interesting ideas about time manipulation and telepathic communication... but so many ideas and alien creatures are jammed in that the whole experience feels highly episodic. The whining young boy really annoyed me too.

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.

03. Un chapeau de paille d'Italie, by René Clair (1928) 7,5/10

A nice comedy, and a smart transcription of a very verbal play into a silent film.

Not great cinema, but more entertaining than I was anticipating...

I'll have a side of Freedom Fries with thatShow

1. In girum imus nocte et consumimur igni / We Spin Around the Night Consumed by the Fire (Guy Debord, 1978)
2. Laissez bronzer les cadavres / Let the Corpses Tan (Hélène Cattet/Bruno Forzani, 2017) (cinema)
3. SHORTS 20+12+8+25 = 65 m
Van Gogh (Alain Resnais, 1948)
Broadway By Light (William Klein, 1958)
Réponse de femmes: Notre corps, notre sexe / Women Reply (Agnès Varda, 1975)
Puissance de la parole / The Power of Speech (Jean-Luc Godard, 1988) 25 m
4. Le magnifique (Philippe de Broca, 1973)

Ostensibly a spy spoof which starts out in a James Bond vein, Jean-Paul Belmondo as our super-secret-agent and Jacqueline Bissett as the Bond-girl/sidekick, this get very ridiculous early on and then...we find out that it's all just a story that the real Belmondo character, a pulp novelist, is writing in the apartment across the way from Bissett's place, imagining her in his latest book which he has to write in a couple of days. And it goes back and forth between the "real" but still farcical world and the Bondian super-spy realm for the rest of the film. While Belmondo and Bissett are engaging enough (who has a more charming smile than Belmondo in film history? Chaplin and Setsuko Hara...maybe), this bored me pretty quickly, knowing there would be no stakes and figuring the ending would be pretty much what it was. Not terrible or anything but completely forgettable.

5. 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.

6. 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.

All first time viewings unless stated:

24: Poil de carotte (1973)5

Set deep in rural France,writer/ director Henri Graziani & cinematographer Henri Graziani pull the carrot-top with an ill-fitting cosy atmosphere,that wipes clean the scars of Poil’s humiliations with glowing chocolate wrapping reds. Adapting Jules Renard’s classic 1894 autobiographical short story, the screenplay by Graziani misses the chance to unearth the collective dark mindset of the family,with only the final scenes between Poil and his dad handling the earthy drama which should have featured in the rest of the film. While his real life wife Monique Chaumette lays on the melodrama a bit too much as Rose,Philippe Noiret’s take on dad François Lepic carries a gravitas which gives weight to François’s fatherly discussions with “Carrot Top.”

This horror film takes a while to develop, basking in the weird and unusual initiation rituals at a college campus, which include being covered in blood and paint and walking on all fours. An unexpected incident involving her sister's finger around half an hour in spins the material in an oddball direction though and from there the film rarely lets up. The film favours shock imagery a little too heavily for my taste, but it is certainly a hard one to forget - and a good argument in favour of vegetarianism.

Hey Maxwell!

Three to get me on the board:

1. 'Point de chute' (1970, Robert Hossein) - 6/10 (FTV)
2. 'L'effrontée' (1985, Claude Miller) - 8/10 (FTV)
3. 'Quai d'Orsay' (2013, Bertrand Tavernier) - 7/10 (FTV)

Charlotte Gainsbourg - who dazzles, moves and engages as she interprets and essays so contemplatively the awkward listlessness and sensuality of teenage fascinations and vulnerabilities in a small-town setting with few friends. A remarkable performance of long-legged, loose-haired youthful vigour and naivety and one glowing with a blossoming self-awareness.

L'effrontée really was perceived as a "generational" movie by people of my generation. I was the same age as Charlotte Gainsbourg when the movie came out, and many kids my age had a feeling they shared a lot with her.
I know my wife has the same link to this film, and I've met and discussed with a lot a people in this situation.

This certainly accounts for Charlotte being so popular today in France (of course, she's done a lot since then, but it was a very good start)...

Yes, her performance really touched me. It's quite beautiful and affecting and so impressive from someone so young to convey such uncertainty and confusion. I shall treasure this film for Gainsbourg in particular.

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.
