Walking on his kneecaps and cleverly shot, Lon Chaney is convincing as a double amputee and the opening scene is absolutely heartbreaking with a great performance by the uncredited actor playing Chaney as a lad. The rest of the movie is too complex for its own with much left unresolved - especially why Chaney is making so many hats. There is also a farfetched twist towards the end, though it leads to an awesome final scene of irony and Chaney is so solid here that the film is worth watching for his maniacal performance alone.

12. Paradise Lost: The Child Murders at Robin Hood Hills (1996) #638

This one hit way too hard on the legal battles, for me. While I like that part of the storyline, this dominated too much for my tastes. But a very interesting story, and I'm definitely intrigued enough to check out the sequels.

13. The Oyster Princess (1919) #298

This didn't grab me, and I think a lot of it was the music that went along with it - it felt more suspenseful than comedic. I was impressed with the structure of it, but not anything I'll remember soon. But might be a good candidate for a rewatch...

Image

Filmed at an isolated Russian village, this documentary looks at the weekly routine of the local bakers who have to push a carriage containing their produce over several kilometres. The first ten minutes is spent entirely on this feat, and as subsequent shots convey how much disrespect they receive from their cantankerous customers, the film questions whether the villagers know the effort of the bakers each week or care. This is a documentary with more questions than answers though and some voiceover narration could have done wonders to fill in the gaps.

60. The Big Combo (1955) DTC #1020

Image

With lots of foggy exteriors and high contrast lighting courtesy of John Alton, this film noir certainly looks great and Richard Conte oozes menace and charisma so perfectly as the crime boss antagonist that the film's reputation is understandable. The project is, however, let down by an ineffective leading turn from a wooden Cornel Wilde. The affection that he supposedly develops for the suicidal girlfriend is never heartfelt and it is only towards the end that his passion for the case comes out beyond the basic 'wanting to catch a crook' dynamic.

Near unrecognisable under heavy makeup and thick accent, Arthur Kennedy plays a Mexican bandit here who manipulates a poor farmer into helping him with a robbery, in turn rocking the serene life that the farmer and his wife enjoy. It is a decent enough premise, but both Eugene Iglesias and Betta St. John leave a lot to be desired as the farmer and wife respectively though. Iglesias is never all that convincing as a man gradually corrupted by greed while the romantic sparks that the script calls for between St. John and Kennedy simply are not there.

The highlight of this film is a fight to save land from an approaching swarm of vicious termites, and yet this only happens in the final 30 minutes despite it being at the centre of the source material story. Despite being extraneous and predictable, the marital tension between the leads may have worked with different actors in the role, but Charlton Heston is wooden, Eleanor Parker is often histrionic, and both come off as dislikeable. The 'romantic' dialogue - "tell me about spoons" - often rings silly too.

A movie truly zen in its approach. I can't say I didn't like it, but it seemed very slow and detached from the tumult of the world...

Beautifully filmed, some of these shots are among the strongest I have seen this year. But the plot seems overdone and hard to swallow... It is so far-fetched it almost seems absurd.

Image

With the legendary Jacques Tourneur at the helm, Way of a Gaucho looks expectedly divine as Tourneur indulges in on-location Argentinean scenery, experiments with blue filters for night scenes and uses some magnificent shots of the protagonist standing on his horse to survey areas. Much like his earlier western Canyon Passage though, Tourneur places too much focus on the look of the film and too little on the characters and performances. Gene Tierney is wasted in a shallow love interest role while Rory Calhoun lacks charm and charisma.

64. Landscape Suicide (1987) DTC #229

Image

An intriguing pseudo documentary from James Benning, in which two convicted murderers are played by professional actors. Best known for directing experimental anti-narrative movies like Ten Skies and One Way Boogie Woogie, it is cool to see Benning tackle something with more backbone. His trademark lingering shots are still present (and there are arguably too many and they are a bit elusive in significance). Whenever the murderers are on screen though, it is difficult to look away.

And that's it for me. Delighted to be able to finish off on a bang with a great film like Landscape Suicide. Thanks for hosting, funky!

3. Shorts (36+30 m)

8. Die freudlose Gasse / The Joyless Street (G.W. Pabst, 1925)
9. The Breaking Point (Michael Curtiz, 1950)
10. Long men kezhan / Dragon Inn (King Hu, 1967)

My second King Hu, after the 1966 Da zui xia, a Shaw Brothers production and looking like their other films from the era, though certainly superior. This, his first film after moving to Taiwan, is a different kettle of fish, with lots of location work and a sense of visual and perhaps to a certain extent narrative freedom that would never fly at Shaw. The way Hu films landscapes... Anthony Mann comes to mind, and that's as high a complement as I can give. And the "classical" editing also strikes me as reminiscent of American classic cinema, in this case John Ford. Everything seems just so, the movement between action, stillness and dialogue is so well judged. As to the story, it's familiar enough, with a couple of kids sent to the frontier after their father has been murdered by the area warlord, only to have the warlord's men come after them, and a motley band assembles to defend them. The way the group comes together seems both random and fate-appointed, and the characterizations though not deep are nicely drawn; I particularly liked the contrast between the rather serious Lingfeng Shangguan, whose art is both graceful, perfectly timed and strong, and Chun Shih, a rather comical figure here but almost Man With No Name-like in his casual deadliness - and the hints of romance between the two are delicious and not at all overdone. The fight sequences and wire-work are a bit primitive I suppose but all in all it's exciting enough and the battles around the inn and the final conflict are perfect in scale and length.

11. Ye mei gui zhi lian / The Wild, Wild Rose (Tian-Lin Wang, 1960)

Carmen comes to Hong Kong in the form of a noirish nightclub-set rendition in smoky black and white, beautifully shot and put together well enough that it would be a memorable version of the story... but then we have Grace Chang's terawatt performance in the central role, which kicks this up to masterpiece level. Seductive and slinky and bitchy yet ultimately sympathetic, all the things a Carmen needs to be, and singing a half-dozen songs taken from various operas but given contemporary Chinese lyrics, she dominates this film on a level I don't recall seeing for quite a while, absolutely riveting. The melodramatic tones of the story can seem a little much - the cold-hearted bitch that Chang's Deng Sijia, a nightclub singer and maneater, seems to be are undercut by her selfless care for her coworker and ultimately the loser she comes to love - but Chang lives this part and never feels less that wholly convincing. Just great and easily the best film I've seen for this challenge - or any of this month's challenges - so far.

12. Pool of London (Basil Dearden, 1951)

Excellent British crime film (or Brit-noir for us pretentious noiristas) about a couple of friends, sailors on a merchant ship docked in London who get involved with a quartet of thieves planning a big heist who need somebody to move the spoils out of Britain. One of the sailors, Dan, is always in money trouble and involved with too many women, too much drink and gambling; his buddy Johnny is a black Jamaican and just the opposite, not knowing anybody, not having anywhere to spend his money, feeling isolated, and the contrast between the two and how it inflects the crime plot is really beautifully handled, with a budding interracial romance (the first in British cinema according to the trivia) one of several plot strands interworked in this 85-minute tight little film. The location work is wonderful and the couple of chase/action sequences masterfully done; Dearden is one of those names who probably deserves more recognition, he's known best for Victim but his career was pretty consistently good from what I've seen.

13. It's Always Fair Weather (Gene Kelly/Stanley Donen, 1955)

It's still hard for me to believe that Kelly/Donen only made three films as co-directors, but On the Town and especially Singin' in the Rain loom so large in the musical firmament that even a dozen more good films would probably not have increased their reputations any further. As it is this was their last, and their feuding on the set apparently soured their friendship and working relationship forever after. The fact that the film didn't receive a great reception or do boffo box office probably didn't help, but now decades later it's as easy to see the virtues as the reasons why it failed at the time. As Jonathan Rosenbaum has written, this is one of the most depressing, negative and sometimes cynical musicals made in a decade where ever there were as many dark criticisms of the Eisenhower sunshine as their were affirmations of it. Kelly, Dan Dailey and Michael Kidd are three army buddies who vow to meet again after 10 years in the same bar and find out that life doesn't work out for any of them - even the very successful Dailey - as they hoped it would. The musical numbers and the use of the full Cinemascope frame are quite impressive, but it's the dour vision of success and the American Dream that will stick with me.

14. From Hell to Texas (Henry Hathaway, 1958)

A man-on-the-run western from old pro Hathaway, this lacks a big-name cast, apart from eventual star Dennis Hopper, and Hathaway remains outside the first tier of western directors from the era, which has probably contributed to it's relative obscurity and lack of reputation. Too bad, because this ended up being a pretty top-notch example from the genre's best decade, with plenty of suspense and more real character development, particularly with regards to "bad guy" R.G. Armstrong and "good guy"/mentor Chill Wills, than we usually see in this kind of story. Don Murray is Todd Lohman, on the run from Armstrong's Hunter Boyd, the biggest rancher in the area and a man hated and feared by everybody outside his own family; Wills is the man Murray eventually turns to for shelter, and the contrast between the garrulous, ebullient Wills with his large Mexican family of girls, and the dour and pigheaded Armstrong with his three loser sons couldn't be more obvious - in the end it's in some ways another "women made the west" film, and men's role is really to learn from their wives or mothers, rather than fight and kill each other - something the world is still in dire need of learning. Too bad the one daughter who happens to really get involved in the story is his white adopted daughter (Diane Varsi); that strikes me as Hollywood fears of miscegenation though it's not all that overt I suppose. This was shot in scope but the copy I saw was 1.78; here's hoping this makes it's way to a quality commercial DVD/Blu release one of these days.

15. 10 Rillington Place (Richard Fleischer, 1971)

Fleischer's second film about a strangler-serial killer after 1968's The Boston Strangler - coincidence or some kind of weird fascination? Anyway, this is also based on a real-life murderer, John Christie (Richard Attenborough in another great performance that as always makes me grieve that he stepped away from his brilliant acting career to become a mediocre and ponderous second-rate David Lean as director), who gassed and strangled about 8 women over a decade or so starting near the end of World War II. John Hurt and Judy Geeson are on hand as a young couple more or less lured into the flat that Christie and his (totally oblivious) wife live in, perhaps to their doom. It's a really solid film, and given that I didn't know the story at all, some real suspense as I had no idea how (or if) the killer would be caught or what would happen, but I think the last act with it's courtroom stretches is a bit less interesting than Christie digging holes in his garden, and sweet-talking young women to have a cup of tea, and relax, and just breathe through this little mask...

15. 10 Rillington Place (Richard Fleischer, 1971)
16. SHORTS 25 + 11 + 30 m = 66 m total
a) A Sense of History (Mike Leigh, 1992) Jim Broadbent (who also scripted) is the 23rd Earl of Leethe, taking us on a guided tour of his 900-year-old property and giving us a sense of both his own increasingly warped personal history, and a sense of the destructive, vindictive, hateful, arrogant and completely selfish concepts of feudalism and the ur-capitalism and that have kept so much of the world's land and wealth in the hands of a greedy few. This is a brilliant, often hilarious but also surprisingly moving portrait of a monstrous, over-the-top and yet quite believable person of undeserved privilege, and one of the greatest satires on power that I've ever seen. Absolutely a masterpiece.
b) Bouquets 1-10 (Rose Lowder, 1995) 11 minutes of strobe-effect cutting of footage of flowers - quite brilliant - with other elements, like running water. I don't get queasy or sick from this kind of editing and don't have epilepsy, but I still don't enjoy it really. Still this is masterfully done and I have to give credit for that, though I'm sure I'll never watch it again or anything else from the director if this is a typical example of her ouevre.
c) The Sun and Richard Lippold (Leo Hurwitz, 1966) - a visual exploration of Lippold's monumental "Sun" sculpture at MOMA (funny, I don't remember seeing it when I was there, but perhaps that room was closed?), which is fascinating, interwoven with a sort of essay on light in general, which is less exciting. Worth seeing but I would be much more interested in something that focused just on the sculptor and his art.

17. Lu bian ye can / Kaili Blues (Gan Bi, 2015)

A rather bleak and dreary story about a doctor and his loser brother fighting over the upbringing of the brother's son, all why the doctor deals with a poor practice and an older colleague as depressed and reverie-driven as he is. In the beginning, that is, and I was perhaps not in the best mood for this, and had trouble concentrating on what was going on, and caring, and then...the film shifts gears dramatically as the doctor (I think - I'm still not sure about all of these characters) takes a trip to a small village to find the nephew, and ends up in a sort of mystical/spiritual place where times intersect and where the film changes styles abruptly, with this whole sequence appearing in the form of a single, nearly hour-long shot done with a wide-angle lens. It's really quite a brilliant tour de force and brought me completely back on board with the film, though I really need to see it again to figure out whether it all fits together. As is, very impressive, but frustrating in some ways, perhaps my own fault in this case.

18. Reality's Invisible (Robert E. Fulton, 1971)

At the Rhode Island School of Design in an indeterminate year(s) of the late 60s - early 70s, the Grateful Dead, Ornette Coleman, Willem de Kooning, Mark Rothko and Marshall McLuhan meet at a bar and then go off to an empty classroom, smoke a lot of dope and decide to make a movie with the help of instructors Jonas Mekas and Dziga Vertov. Jean-Luc Godard offers help but decides the women aren't pretty enough, and Stan Brakhage complains about the sound (that it has some). Le Corbusier meets for a discussion at Walden Pond but most of his ideas are discarded, though his friend John Cage comes by to help edit. Peter Watkins suggests that the voices of students need more presence, and presiding guru Robert E. Fulton agrees, and puts it all together making magic out of diverse magicks.

Unfathomabelievable.

19. Liang Shan Bo yu Zhu Ying Tai / The Love Eterne (Han Hsiang Li, 1963)

Beautifully done tragic love story in the form of traditional Chinese opera, with both thwarted lovers played by women - one of them playing a man who for much of the film is disguised as a woman. Got that? I'd imagine a bit part of one's enjoyment of this will depend on one's appreciation for the music, which I found pleasant enough but incredibly repetitive and same-y through, at least up until the finale. And the film does run a bit long and there are odd touches - a rather propagandistic song that begins the school section, where the two would-be lovers are classmates together, about the roles of men and women - that I didn't necessarily understand. Still the handsome shot-on-sets Shaw style, the beautiful use of color, and the powerful climax made this worth seeing for me; if you're not into this kind of heightened melodrama though I wouldn't blame you, and frankly, much as I love musicals, I guess I'm glad that Shaw didn't keep making these things forever and went instead into martial arts territory a few years later.

Oh and Dragon Gate Inn has to be the single most watched film for any challenge, other than maybe a short film for <400 or something. Seriously, who didn't watch it? [me]

Oh, cool - I can finally add an Alfred Hitchcock Oscar to my awards cabinet. This was a really up and down Challenge for me; there were a lot of films that I did not find close to Canon-worthy, but also plenty of films that I'll happily give a 5 or 6 to next time they are revoted in the exercise. A good experience overall. Many thanks to weirdboy and 72a for encouraging me to keep watching DTC films to retain my second place position! And er, I didn't see Dragon Gate Inn either...
