This documentary pretty much celebrates Snowden as a hero, which may rub you the wrong way depending on your politics. Such biases aside, this is riveting look at a man doing something dangerous because he believes it is right and the film is unusually shot with many moments of Snowden just plodding around his hotel room that humanise him. A fire alarm scene is also really eerie. Quite aside from being about Snowden, the film also clarifies metadata and issues of privacy in the modern era, asking us to question what we expect of our governments.

This documentary follows eight kids as they compete in a national spelling bee, but rarely addresses the downside of their obsession. One parent laughs off the suggestion that the process is akin to "child abuse" and another parent briefly remarks on her daughter's lack of a social life, but these issues are never properly developed. The final five minutes do give some context to spelling bees and the stresses involved, but it comes a little late. The kids (other than the annoying one with the wide mouth and braces) are at least interesting individuals.

Best thought of as an experimental movie, this film is shot to look like one continuous slow zoom towards an object on the wall, and director Michael Snow employs an interesting bag of cinematic tricks to create the illusion as colours are inversed and shots are dissolved together. The final shot is a bit of a pun and frustratingly gives little context to the murder mystery, but this manipulation of expectation is interesting in itself. It is quite a hypnotic experience too, with the pre-murder long distance shots especially enticing. It's all about what we can and cannot see.

I once went to a Christmas party wearing a grey sweatshirt that we painted "Now I have a machine gun - ho ho ho" on. Only a handful of people caught the reference, but it was easily the most successful costume I've ever done.

Image

This British documentary examines the case of an adult French con artist who managed to convince a Texan family that he was their missing teenage son. The film features some great, highly cinematic reconstruction footage (see above) and as the imposter waxes poetic about being "reborn" and having "a second chance to succeed", it is easy to sympathise with his sentiments. The film is a little too focused on him though rather than the family - and in particular their willing suspension of disbelief - but this is absolutely riveting stuff.

Dots was pleasant enough, but ultimately just exploding dots at the end of the day. Charade was hilarious; I was laughing out loud at some of their ridiculous guesses including Humanoids from the Deep and The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance. Final gag was predictable but still a lot of fun. Pas de Deux has some really cool overlapping images and very pleasant music but I did get a little restless towards the end given the simplicity of the conceit. Rouli-roulant was really something else: a documentary about skateboarding that is fashioned like one of the anti-marijuana scare films of the 1930s. The English title is 'The Devil's Toy', which gives a good idea of how satiric the whole film is. The Bead Game was a revision. It was even more innovative that I recalled and all very rhythmic - action coinciding well with the music. Bambi Meets Godzilla is a fun idea, but hardly Official List material. The end credits were funnier than what happened between the two creatures. L'homme sans ombre is actually a film that I think I saw ages ago (back in the IMDb days I did not vote on shorts). Almost surreal, images melting together and so on and beautifully animated in grayscale for the first stretch. Blind Vaysha was a really nice tale and superbly animated, though the Clockwork Orange music was a bit distracting.

Image

Xavier Dolan film about a playwright who has returned to tell his family that he is dying, but when he gets there he finds a younger sister who is essentially a stranger and a less successful older brother who is bitter and resentful of him. Some extreme close-ups (as they first converse in the hallway of their house) mirror the awkwardness felt between all, and this is a pretty realistic look at a dysfunctional family. With lots of screaming and shouting, the film is exhausting and feels long even at only 95 minutes, but the emotions cut deep.

I saw French Cancan in a restored 35mm print back in the 90s. The color was so lush and the film such a delight (especially the moment when they premiere the cancan) that I've never been able to revisit the film on video. Your photo has convinced me that maybe I should revisit it.

Happy holidays. Roger! :cheers:

Image

Using a camera especially built for the film, the shots are far from ordinary here and deliberately disorientating to the point that one loses track of what is up and down. The camera itself spins around on both horizontal and vertical axes, with the very first 360 degree spinning shot especially memorable. Then there is the nighttime footage in which Michael Snow intentionally blurs the line between sky and ground, plus there are subtle changes in speed. Interesting as it though, La Région Centrale sorely lacks the playfulness of <---> and Wavelength.

I saw French Cancan in a restored 35mm print back in the 90s. The color was so lush and the film such a delight (especially the moment when they premiere the cancan) that I've never been able to revisit the film on video. Your photo has convinced me that maybe I should revisit it.

Happy holidays. Roger! :cheers:
I watched the Criterion DVD which has come in for some criticism (http://www.dvdbeaver.com/film/DVDReview ... ox1.htm#fc). Would be a treat to see it on the big screen and in a pristine print. Still vivid and dazzling and wonderfully rewarding though and the dance scenes are certainly spectacular!

Festive cheer to you and yours as well, 'beatnik! You've enjoyed an amazing year over all challenges.
That's all, folks!

This drama benefits from some terrific performances - in particular Mélissa Désormeaux-Poulin as the sister and Lubna Azabal as the mother in flashback, and the film balances the present and past story threads playing out against one another well. The film also has an intriguing jigsaw puzzle-like structure. When push comes to shove, it does not quite make sense how cryptic and vague the information is that she provides for her children, but the scarcity of information does lead to a pretty shocking final fifteen minutes.

Flashing single words on screen at time, Michael Snow address such issues as the making of this movie and audience expectations in this fun experimental film. While the whole thing is white letters on black background and no sound, Snow manipulates the speed between words and how long words humorously linger on screen for. And humour is rife throughout; it is frequently laugh-out-loud funny as Snow lies about length of the film to be "frightening", as he lingers on the heading "Warning:" and flashes swear words throughout a segment on censorship.

And I think that's it for me. I have some more Canadian and documentary films lined up, but I'm pretty sure that none of them are on Forum Lists. Thanks for hosting, 72a!

Thanks for sharing that review with me. I think I will try to locate the Criterion disc to watch before I buy it now. I used to be more of a cinema purist when I lived in Seattle and San Francisco, both with very active repertory film communities, but since moving to a small town in Oregon I've had to rely more on video for my immersion in film.

You've had a pretty good challenge year yourself, Roger. Especially lately when you are often a few points ahead of me at the end of a challenge. I'll be cutting back on challenges next year. The pace that I set to maintain my overall lead has been a real challenge to maintain for a year and I would rather focus on just one or two challenges at a time for awhile.
