Thematically, this documentary on Hispanic and African American drag queens lacks focus as it jumps between issues as broad as racism, sex change operations, drag queen fashion, materialism and "voguing" dance routines, but everyone interviewed is quite interesting, especially as their opinions diverge on topics such changing gender and buying versus making outfits. I didn't like the flippant way a revelation towards the end is handled, however, that possibly says much more about the world the drag queens live in than anything else.

Image

A less dynamic entry than 28 Up since the men and women have changed less than between ages 21 and 28 and most of them seem relatively settled. As usual, the documentary's highlights come from when its subjects talk about being in the film series, with one wife even commenting that "the show makes you analyse things more". Michael Apted also wisely saves Neil for last. As he talks about the difficulties of accepting reality and admits to the fact that he might well be going mad, the inclusion of prior footage resonates more than ever.

Image

This sixth Up film runs longer than all previous entries while including less ruminations about the filmmaking process and the effect on their lives. There is also much more focus on what the spouses of those involved have to say. Symon does draw an acute distinction between movies versus reality in terms of how his life has panned out, and Michael Apted nicely allows each participant to respond to what it is like being filmed in final six minutes, but it is never a consistent running theme as it is was in 28 Up.

12. 49 Up (2005) - Documentary

Image

More interesting than the previous entry, 49 Up sees some of its subjects reassessing life as they become grandparents. Several also become more frank and honest with Michael Apted and their feelings about the invasive filming process. Most memorable of all is one lady who gets noticeably angry at Apted, proclaiming "you will edit this program as you see fit" and telling him that he should make his documentaries about "us, rather than your perception of us". Apted never quite dwells on this issue though. Maybe he'll do so more in the next entry.

And that's a lot for one day. :sweat:

I think I'll take a break and space things out before diving into 56 Up. These films were never, of course, intended to binge-watched.

We're Just a Bunch of Navel-Gazers Aren't WeShow
1. The Shop Around the Corner (Ernst Lubitsch, 1940) (re-watch) Christmas, 1940s
2. Funny Face (Stanley Donen, 1957) (re-watch) Musicals
3. Warrendale (Allan King, 1967) Canada, Documentaries
4. Apache Drums (Hugo Fregonese, 1951) Westerns
5. Meet Me in St. Louis (Vincente Minnelli, 1944) (re-watch) Christmas, Musicals, 1940s
6. Anvil: The Story of Anvil (Sacha Gervasi, 2008) Canada, Documentaries
7. Gremlins (Joe Dante, 1984) (re-watch) Christmas, Horror, 1980s
8. The Holiday (Nancy Meyers, 2006) Christmas
9. Superbad (Greg Mottola, 2007) (re-watch) Comedies, 2000s
10. Toki o kakeru shôjo / The Girl Who Leapt Through Time (Mamoru Hosoda, 2006) Japan, Sc-Fi, Animated
11. Pyaasa / Thirst (Guru Dutt, 1957) Musicals, 1950s
12. I Love Melvin (Don Weis, 1953) Musicals
13. Christmas Shorts - 16 + 25 + 26 = 67 minutes
14. Cabaret (Bob Fosse, 1972) (re-watch) Favorite Movies, Musicals, LGBT, 1970s
15. The Smiling Lieutenant (Ernst Lubitsch, 1931) Musicals, 1930s

Solid if typical Lubitsch musical that I imagine will entrance most fans of the director and/or his frequent star at this period, Maurice Chevalier, but which doesn't for me stand with the best. Chevalier is a poor but charming lieutenant pushed into a marriage through a typically silly misunderstanding with a princess (Miriam Hopkins) though he is really in love with - or at least fooling around with - musician Franzi (Claudette Colbert). He thinks he'll get out of the situation but doesn't reckon with the fact that Princess Anna really is falling for him, or that Franzi is quite willing to give him up, and to help Anna get his attention. Lots of charm, lots of pre-Code naughtiness (one song is called "Jazz Up Your Lingerie") but overall I didn't get as involved as I often do with Lubitsch, and the songs weren't among the best. Still, minor Lubitsch is good enough.

16. Ging chaat goo si III: Chiu kup ging chaat / Police Story 3 - Supercop (Stanley Tong, 1992) Action, Chinese

It's been at least a decade since I've seen the first two entries in the series but I don't have too much doubt that this is the weakest in the series, with a fairly uninteresting plot (Jackie teams up with a mainland cop (Michelle Yeoh) to stop a big drug operation) and not enough Maggie Cheung (though to be fair, she's in it quite a bit; there just can't ever bee enough Maggie Cheung). Major plus is Yeoh, a better actor than Chan and nearly as impressive in her stuntwork; major minus is a lot of the comedy, particularly the whole issue with May (Cheung) jealous of Jackie - wouldn't you think by this time she would have some understanding of the kind of undercover work he does? Still the action sequences are very impressive and I certainly wasn't ever bored.

17. Blokada (Sergey Loznitsa, 2006) Russia, Documentaries, Experimental

Excellent wordless document of the siege of Leningrad, a year of privation and horror cataloged in less than an hour, with modern sound effects added in that at times struck me as a little obtrusive but overall worked. It's all in the editing in a work like this and it's quite brilliantly done, communicating as much of the feel of life under siege as anything I've seen in twice the duration.

18. 3 Godfathers (John Ford, 1948) (re-watch) Christmas, Western

I saw this probably a dozen years ago, remembered just vaguely the saving-the-baby plot and the parallels with Jesus; didn't remember that it was in color surprisingly, the usual rich sort of color you find in a Ford film of this vintage. It's a very good film overall, with John Wayne, Pedro Armendáriz and Harry Carey Jr. as three bandits escaping across the desert from a posse led by Ward Bond after robbing a bank, and coming across a dying pregnant woman who they help to give birth to a son, and who extracts a promise to look out for him. You can maybe guess how things go from there. It's all superbly put together, with one of Wayne's better performances and a meatier role for Bond than usual, though the always wonderful Armendáriz leaves the biggest impression; but I have to say I found the typical Fordian humor a little tiring this time around and the ending's sentimentality is just on the verge of palatable for me.

19. Fido (Andrew Currie, 2006) Canada

A pretty wonderful suburban 50s satire in the form of a zombie comedy, with a little newsreel exposition at the beginning explaining how the zombie outbreak changed the world and almost destroyed it, until we learned that a shot through the head would kill them - and we could tame them with control collars. Years later, everyone in the middle-class (verging on upper) suburb we're watching has at least one zombie servant and rules about death and burial and all kinds of other social customs are significantly changed, and our perfect family, Bill and Helen Robinson (Dylan Baker and Carrie-Ann Moss) have their first zombie (gotta keep up with the Joneses, or in this case the Bottoms family led by patriarch Henry Czerny, a hero in the zombie wars and the head of security of Zomcon, a corporation that more or less runs everything), the title character (Billy Connolly) and everything seems to be wonderful, but the relationships between Fido and their young son Timmy (K'sun Ray), Fido and Helen, and other zombie-human situations point to some dark problems at the heart of this strange utopia. Fido's biggest problem is that it's got too much on it's plate, trying to do political/historical satire, horror-comedy, a bit of 50s science fiction and lots of other things in a standard hour-and-a-half, and it doesn't quite gel into a cohesive, satisfying whole though it's always entertaining and inventive, and Moss and Czerny in particular are just great, as is the colorful pastel-oriented photography and production design. This is right up my alley so while I wish it went a little deeper in it's exploration of the suburban psyche, and in the obvious allusions in the human-zombie relationships to pets, slavery, and various other unequal societal arrangements in history, it offers plenty of food for thought and entertainment as is.

Image

While the exploding heads, popping vein effects and brooding Howard Shore score are always what Scanners is destined to be remembered for, repeat viewings reveal increasing layers about humanity and what it is means to be human here. The art therapy subplot is great too (perhaps Cronenberg hinting about his own need to make films) and most surprising of all is how darkly comic the whole thing is; the "see, I told you - no fireworks" scene still cracks me up every time.

You might benefit from spacing them out (if it's at all possible with two weeks left to go). My least favourite entry was 21 Up, but I suspect that largely came down to me watching it too close to Seven Plus 7, both of which I saw during the 70s Challenge, while 28 Up is my utmost favourite entry, which I watched for the 80s Challenge with a couple of months gap in between. And I kind of feel like I have done the wrong thing by watching 35, 42 and 49 so close together. The big issue is that all of the documentaries reuse tons of footage from the earlier segments, which leads to the films feeling a tad repetitive when watched so close together. But argh, I'll probably still watch 56 Up either today or tomorrow and get it done and dusted to move onto other promising docos that I have lined up this month. Mm. Do as I say Max, not as I do...

Part of what makes the characters so interesting here is that the pair are at different stages of coming out; one is totally out of the closet, while the other has only told a few close friends and relatives. As the pair converse, they discuss issues such as having to conform (tone down their sexuality) when with straight friends, and yet their most interesting discussions transcend sexuality, such one of them who fears being cemented into what his friends expect of him. The project is also nicely photographed with choice out-of-focus foregrounds.

I watched the first two within a day or two of each other, and I actually liked the repetitive footage in 14 - I had a hell of a time telling all the kids apart in 7, so I appreciated the hand-holding to get me to the recognition. But I see your point in that binging them would be repetitive. Maybe I'll try and watch some disks of Shoah between them...

Interesting bits and pieces here include Peter confessing that he pulled out the series for several years because he could not take the media attention and the three girls joking about which one of them actually wanted to work at Woolworths. The film is unfortunately a bit of a mixed bag in between these highlights; most of the participants have barely changed since the previous entry and have little new to add. As Suzy states, "I have a loyalty to [appearing in the series] even though I hate it", comparing the series to a bad book she feels compelled to finish.

Both Shoah and the Sorrow and Pity are separated in two parts roughly the same length, so it's easy to watch them in two separate viewings if you don't have enough time. Hope you'll enjoy them!

03. Limonádový Joe aneb Konská opera, by Oldrich Lipsky (1964) 7,5/10 #100 on ICM Forum's Favourite Central European Films - Top 150

Quite unusual and funny. There is a lot of creativity in this strange western...

A wonderful script, and a very subtle approach to friendship and the passage of time. Great actors, too...

6. Shinboru (Symbol) (2009): 7.8 [Unofficial Checks #58, Japanese #140]
7. Jour de fête (1949): 7.8 [1940s #116, Comedies #156] - A nice comedy, not because of its jokes; it wasn't laugh out loud funny to me. But because the portrayal of this stylistic old French town life, which the nostalgic in me liked a lot.
8. Le chagrin et la pitié (The Sorrow and the Pity) (1969): 7.8 [Documentaries #25, 1960s #129] - Interesting good documentary that even for its long running time never bores. But it didn't leave to a very deeper new understanding for me of the period. Which might be because the central thesis of this; the debunking of the myth of France as a country of resistors by giving a realistic account of it, doesn't has the same effect anymore because the whole myth doesn't exist anymore (to me). It also assumes a bit too much preknowledge from its viewers about the Vichy period.
9. Varieté (1925): 8.0 - [German #117, 1920s #150, Silent #164]
10. Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore (1974): 8.0 [1970s #180] - Scorsese's fourth fictional movie, stil his only pic with a strong female lead, is a very strong drama. Burnstyn is superb.
11. Alpeis (Alps) (2011): 7.5 [Balkan #52, Unofficial Checks #115] - By standing in for deceased loved ones a group helps people with their grieving process. Because the movie never makes clear if all the relationships we see the protagonist in are played or some of them are real, it raises questions about intentions versus results, falseness versus real.
12. L'albero degli zoccoli (The Tree of Wooden Clogs) (1978): 8.5 [Italian #45, 1970s #157]
13. Misery (1990): 7.2 [1990s #172] - This lost some effect on me, because its story has been copied and parodied so much even seeing the film the first time now I knew the plot already. And it isn't excellent made enough to completely compensate for this predictability.
14. Body Heat (1981): 7.2 [1980s #156] - Decent 80s erotic neonoir
15. The Imposter (2012): 7.8 [Documentaries #127] - The unbelievability of this story had me interested from the start, but it really gets good and suspenseful in the last 30 minutes or so.
16. It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World (1963): 4.5 [Road Trip #74, 1960 #246, Comedies #210] - very long, very unfunny, very poor.
So many lists, so little timeShow
1. Long men kezhan (Dragon Gate Inn) (1967): 8.2 [Chinese #40, Action #63]
2. Coup de torchon (1981): 6.2 [1980s #149, French #175]
3. A New Leaf (1971): 8.0 [1970s #234]
4. The Fallen Idol (1948): 8.0 [UK #52, #Thriller-Suspense #65, 1940s #88, Noir #126] -

The camera in this experimental Michael Snow movie rocks to and fro in an empty classroom for 45+ minutes. The false sense of security that Snow establishes by the exact same thing happening for 11 minutes with only whirring sounds makes the rest of the film full of surprises. People random start popping up as the camera sways, the speed and direction of the swaying changes and then we start to see things outside the windows (or do we?). A pretty hypnotic film that meditates on the relationship between cameras and their film environments.

The only way to watch The Sorrow and the Pity is to start watching Annie Hall, pause at the part where he goes to see Sorrow for the second time, watch the documentary, then carry on watching the Woody Allen film.

SpoilerShow
No, I haven't seen The Sorrow and the Pity yet. But it always makes me think of Annie Hall. :think:
