Yes, I will probably miss a few here and there next year as well. It'll be nice to have 36/36 this term but one wouldn't want to burn out that flame.
That's all, folks!

Around about March I became aware of 36/36 and since then I've tried to get 36 in each challenge but fallen short a few times. Doubles and triples certainly helped me (I've nearly doubled my number of challenge movies using them), but managing them was almost a 4th challenge each month in itself. It's been a lot of fun most of the time but I'm not in a hurry to do it again!

46. Le chagrin et la pitié (1969) Switzerland | West Germany 11 official lists 936 checks
iCM Forum's Favourite Documentaries #25
iCM Forum's Favourite Movies of the 1960s #129
47. 56 Up (2012) UK 2 official lists 662 checks
iCM Forum's Favourite Documentaries #167

End of challenge
27 (of 49) lists visited, iCM Forum's Favourite Documentaries won with 21 visits
Berlin: Die Sinfonie der Grosstadt (1927) won with a total of 5 lists

21 were documentaries. The remaining 26 were stuff I saw to gain some close awards (I usually boost the checks if I'm 1-4 checks from the next award). I think I ended up with 16 better awards this month. In a non-Holiday month I would probably focused more on visiting all the 49 lists.
That is all for me. Thanks for hosting 72allinncallme, and godt nytt år everyone!

19. Fido (Andrew Currie, 2006) Canada
20. They Made Me a Fugitive (Albert Cavalcanti, 1947) Film Noir, 1940s

Trevor Howard stars in what appears at first a fairly conventional revenge noir, as a former serviceman who gets hooked up with some black marketeers and then framed for murdering a cop. Escaping prison, he is determined to clear his name and deal with Narcy (Griffith Jones, a name I didn't know, quite impressive), his ex-girlfriend who betrayed him, etc. What makes this pretty involving is Cavalcanti's expert direction and some neat side alleys in the plot, like a second murder getting pinned on Howard in a completely different fashion. And while it's pretty much a studio-shot production it has a good feel for the postwar griminess, rationing and despair.

21. Lady in the Lake (Robert Montgomery, 1946) (re-watch) Film Noir

A second holiday-themed noir in a row, though it's pretty minimal in this case, and nobody's going to remember the Christmas element first; what they'll take note of I'd imagine, as I did on both viewings (first was about 10-11 years ago) is the much-discussed point-of-view camerawork - this is supposedly the first narrative feature shot entirely with subjective camera - and Audrey Totter's awesome femme fatale character, in my opinion her best work and one of the best female leads in noir. As to the story, it's fairly typical Raymond Chandler/Philip Marlowe stuff, with Marlowe down on his luck and getting involved with an untrustworthy dame, and murders to follow. The limitations of 1940s technology and budgets make this less impressive in it's technique and novelty than you might hope for, particularly if weaned on first-person shooters and later variations on the style; lots of static or slow-moving shots, very little action, most of the film confined to fairly simple sets - but Chandler's misanthropic worldview and Totter's performance are enough to put it, if not in the first rank of noir then at least near the top of the second rank.

22. Nothing (Vincenzo Natali, 2003) Canada

Two best friends - Andrew, a totally paranoid and extreme neurotic who can't leave the house, and Dave, a cocksure jerk who is just now finding out what an incompetent loser he is, both have terrible days - ridiculously terrible as the world seems quite literally to be conspiring against them, and have a sort of simultaneous breakdown after which they find out that the world outside of the house is gone and replaced by a pure white Nothing. Rather than acting the way we might expect people in most movies to act - either becoming complete psychotics and retreating into themselves, or calmly and rationally working towards figuring a way out of their situation, they actually act the way we might expect given what we've seen of them up to this point - like adolescent idiots who show us almost at every moment why they were outsiders/losers in society to begin with. This is the most refreshing element of Nothing - that these characters are consistent throughout, and once you figure that out, the conclusion seems foreordained (though still fun). I didn't love it as much as I hoped given the originality of the conceit, because hanging out with Andrew and Dave for an hour and a half got irritating and tiresome at times, but it was definitely worth a look.

23. Shoah (Claude Lanzmann, 1985) 1001 Favorite Movies, Documentary, Depressing, France, War, 1980s

This has probably been on my mental must-see list longer than any other film; I remember learning about it when it first played in the Chicago area, at the Skokie Theater in Skokie - a suburb that was at that time almost 50% Jewish, with many survivors, and which had come to national attention a few years later when neo-Nazis tried to march there. Not sure when it first played - maybe 1986 or 1987? In any case I was in college, didn't have a car, money was tight and of course this played over several nights, I don't think it played all at once, so it was pretty much impossible. It probably played a couple more times while I lived in Chicago but I don't recall, and I've never been as big a documentary person as many here. I do have another personal memory, which is that while working at a video store in the late 80s I once put together a display for Hannukah and Jewish history and got complemented by a guy who asked if I was Jewish, because I seemed to know more about the subject than most people - he said this sort of disparagingly, he was Jewish himself, not old enough to remember the war, but he felt surrounded by people who had become ignorant of the past of their people. And of course memory is the central subject here - it is in fact an epic dialectic between the memory of the lands and places - which one has to imagine in the mind's eye as places of horror, because they bear no living trace of it anymore of course - and the memory of the survivors, the witnesses, the perpetrators, and the historians and academics. Of course the memory of the victims is, like the memories of stones and grass and trees, inaccessible.

It's hard to put it all together ultimately; this film I think should not be thought of "merely" as a Holocaust documentary, or a documentary about a part of the experience of one specific group of humanity - while it's focus is absolute and narrow, it's images are only those of the death camps (as opposed to the concentration camps, an important distinction), and only on those who were involved in the horrors in some way between 1941-45, and only on the actual details of what happened - as opposed to why, which does figure slightly, especially when several Polish non-Jewish townspeople are interviewed at length - but isn't really Lanzmann's story. I think in the accumulation of details, and in the story that we do hear, one of a gradual and systematic yet not necessarily always sophisticated or coherent plan of extermination, we can see other stories, other peoples, other eras, while at the same time understanding always that what the Nazis did was more purposeful and extreme in intent and in results than any other such annihilation. It is not thus unprecedented as an idea - because hatred and the will to destroy have been with us since the beginning - but very much so in it's scale, concentration, focus. And that is what he begs us to remember, and when at the very end of the film one of the survivors of the Warsaw Ghetto describes running through tunnels and doors in the ghetto, and not seeing anyone, and believing at that point that he might be the last Jew on earth, that the Germans have destroyed them all, we can actually believe it, and that is the true horror.

Certainly one of the greatest films ever made and despite it's stillness, as it accumulates dozens of long shots of now-pastoral landscapes, and slowly rolling railway cars, and length, one of the most visceral and difficult experiences to watch. Anybody who can watch the testimony of Abraham Bomba, performing his job as a barber in Jerusalem while describing the job he performed as a barber in Treblinka without getting upset is... I don't want to say. I don't know what to say. That's all.

24. A Christmas Story (Bob Clark, 1983) (re-watch) Canada, Christmas, 1980s

Likely somewhere around the 10th-11th viewing; the only Christmas feature that I also watched last year, as it turns out. Most of this review is from last year's viewing: Like many people I know, I was unimpressed the first time I saw this, I'm thinking probably Christmas 1990 on VHS. For whatever reason I missed this on the big screen when it came out; I was in my first year in college at the time but I wasn't working all that hard and I was certainly still seeing movies and I believe I was just as enamored of some of the holiday trappings then. But I missed it. The first viewing was with my second girlfriend, who *LOVED* it and had seen it several times before; she strongly disliked It's a Wonderful Life, my favorite, so maybe that was part of it. And she had more of a taste for broad comedy (she also loved John Candy who I detested at the time), and our relationship was always problematic - so for these and other reasons the film did nothing for me at the time. I don't know if I watched it again in the 90s but since 2000 it has become a fixture for me and I love it more every time.

This was the first viewing of the BD I got, to replace the DVD which died last year. It's not one of the best BDs ever - little improvement in resolution or color over the DVD - and the extras I think are identical to the DVD, so if you've got the DVD, don't bother upgrading until/unless they restore/remaster this further. One of the great appeals for me is the beautiful, nearly perfect depiction of time and place. I wasn't around in 1939-40 (I think in most respects these are the most likely years it could've taken place though it's not trying to be completely accurate in that sense) but I did have older relatives who lived in suburban Chicagoland in a house much like the one in the film (just a little nicer and larger) in a neighborhood that looked like it was built at about the same time (1900-1920); and I spent my first 7 years and years 17-30 in and around Chicago, and though this was filmed in Cleveland and Toronto it gets the feel of the older suburban Chicago are just right. And there are certainly other personal elements for me - I wanted a BB gun as a kid also, though my parents were even more over-protective than Ralphie's and I didn't get one until much older. But mostly it's just impeccably put together, very funny, and anchored by great performances with Darren McGavin doing once-in-a-lifetime work as The Old Man.

25. Juste la fin du monde / It's Only the End of the World (Xavier Dolan, 2016) Canada

Not surprised to learn that Dolan's 6th feature is based on a play - it's all conversation and has the feel of discrete scenes and acts to it, and to me at least it felt pretty stagy and artificial much of the time. Despite having the biggest-name cast he's had to date - Nathalie Baye, Vincent Cassel, Marion Cotillard, Léa Seydoux and Gaspard Ulliel - and a very distinctive and bold stylistic change from his earlier work - most shots are close-ups of faces, and nearly all of them just one face in the frame at a time, as we explore a dysfunctional family reunion of sorts - this has to be counted for me as the director's first failure. I have no problem with unsympathetic or unpleasant characters normally, but I have to say that apart from Cotillard's Catherine - married to Cassel, and meeting Ulliel for the first time - the one outsider to the family unit (Baye's brittle mother, Cassel's angry, older brother, Ulliel's younger, successful playwright brother and our protagonist who is home after a dozen years with bad news, and Seydoux' daughter who is clearly still finding herself and wanting some way out of the family drama), I just couldn't connect to or care about anybody here. Maybe that was the point, but it was a tough slog even at under 100 minutes and I never felt like I was getting any new insights or anything special in this story of frustrated non-connection. I can't really fault the acting but the three women in particular are all actresses I really love and I'd rather see any of them in anything else.

I really enjoyed this challenge, as it motivated me to watch a bunch of films that otherwise would have lingered on my watchlist for some indeterminate time, and in watching those I was able to discover some new favorites and new directors to watch out for in the future. I wouldn't mind repeating this challenge more often, as it's a very large list of candidate films and it has a pretty good turnover year to year as well.

I still have to go through a few of these lists to check whether I have seen any relevant titles during December but other family members wish to use the laptop right now. I'll hope to get to those remaining lists sometime later this afternoon/early evening.

I'm going to go have some New Year's Day lunch. May I take this opportunity to wish everyone a Happy New Year.

:cheers:
That's all, folks!

25. Juste la fin du monde / It's Only the End of the World (Xavier Dolan, 2016) Canada
26. Meet John Doe (Frank Capra, 1941) (re-watch) 1940s

5th viewing or so, but the first in at least 10 years. Disappointing that this is still not available in a decent video version - I checked out a DVD from the library that looked atrocious and then checking through YT, Prime and a couple of other places found nothing better. My other 3 favorite Capras - It's a Wonderful Life, Lost Horizon, It Happened One Night - all have good to excellent BDs now but this still languishes. My standards have also gone up I suppose - 10-15 years ago I would certainly not have complained so much.

Anyway this, like the other films I mentioned, is pure Capra with all the pluses and minuses that his other greatest films have - yes, there's plenty of sentimentality, yes, there's a populism that can seem strained at times - given the director's own conflicted personality, no surprise - and yes this still works like magic on me. Of course a cast of Gary Cooper playing essentially an idealized Gary Cooper, if a down-and-out one, Barbara Stanwyck, Walter Brennan, James Gleason and Edward Arnold almost can't help ensure a great film, and the story with it's obvious echoes of both Nazism and Christianity is ripe for Capra's particular kind of mixture of screwball and pathos. The ending - when our John Doe, who has been through the emotional and political ringer, made an icon of the everyman American and then destroyed by the greed and corruption of the man behind him all along - is on the verge of suicide - is certainly imperfect, but it's just as certain that a proper ending for this story eluded Capra and probably everyone else involved. James Gleason's last line though is perfect for the film, and for Capra's career at it's best - if you can take the films as they seem to have been intended. I guess I still can.

27. Kawaita hana / Pale Flower (Masahiro Shinoda, 1964) 1001 Favorite Movies, Japan, Film Noir, 1960s

Pretty excellent Japanese noir with Ryô Ikebe as Muraki, an apparently career gangster newly out of jail after a murder, and navigating a typically claustrophobic world in which he's hemmed in by a longtime sort-of-girlfriend, a new flame who is a high-rolling gambler and in some ways competitor, and an organization where his only potential role seems to be to go back to the kind of violence that has kept him in jail for much of his life. This is notable especially for it's quite gorgeous b/w widescreen photography - it looks shot mostly on sets and certainly the driving scenes (there's a really fun chase sequence at about the halfway point) are all done with obvious rear projection - which somehow despite the 2.35 frame seems to make everything feel very closed in - and the mostly atonal music from Yûji Takahashi and Tôru Takemitsu, though the cast is certainly pulling it's weight as well. A film of ennui rather than paranoia, at a point in the noir cycle when the war is becoming a distant memory, and it's the hopelessness of the modern world of technology and large cities with faceless millions that is really getting to the noir protagonist.

28. Gold Diggers of 1933 (Mervyn LeRoy, 1933) (re-watch) 1001 Favorite Movies, Musicals, 1930s

I had little memory of this, but seeing how it placed so highly in the recent music poll, had to give it another shot; I watched a lot of the "Gold Diggers" and "Broadway Melody" films back in the early 2000s and they all ran together really, but this one really is quite distinctive. Yeah, it's the pre-code naughtiness that's a big part of the appeal, the great cast of course dominated especially by Joan Blondell as the take-charge member of a quartet of struggling actresses (Aline MacMahon, Ruby Keeler and a pre-fame Ginger Rogers are the others) "gold digging" their way out of their own personal Depression sagas even while they end up in a musical that explicitly references the subject. One of the nice things here is that while the women certainly are (for the most part) angling for money and success in somewhat underhanded ways, the men they're working on (Warren William and Guy Kibbee specifically, but also in some ways Dick Powell and Ned Sparks) are quite clearly as much to blame for the breakdown in sexual-political honesty. It's all enormous fun, the songs are all at least good with the "Pettin' in the Park" number (staged like the other big sequences by Busby Berkeley) one of the greatest musical set-pieces of the decade.

29. Who Framed Roger Rabbit (Robert Zemeckis, 1988) (re-watch) 1001 Favorite Movies, Animated, Comedy, 1980s

Probably 4th or 5th viewing. Saw this twice, or maybe three times first run, and I think on VHS once in the late 90s. I didn't remember how the plot hung together particularly, but almost every scene and line of dialogue was still familiar. This is very much a case of the sum being greater than the parts - not that the parts aren't pretty terrific for the most part, but I think if you add it all together you find a plot with a lot of little holes or areas that need a bit more development - in particular our villain character and his relationship to Toontown and his rationale for existence, really. But for a film that tries to shoehorn together a 1940s film noir plot and characters, the whole world of classic American animation, and the destruction of public transportation to make way for the freeway and interstate highway system, all in 104 minutes, this does pretty well, and the special effects still look pretty great to these eyes. And its wonderful that Mel Blanc and Mae Questel were still around to voice Bugs, Daffy, Betty Boop and others. Smile, Darn Ya, Smile!

30. La La Land (Damien Chazelle, 2016) (re-watch) 1001 Favorite Movies, Musical, 2010s

14th viewing, 2nd on BD. This is why I love movies.

Image



That's it for me, thanks for hosting 72, this was fun and got me to finish off the film noir icm list and to watch some other films languishing on the to-see list for a long, long time. And getting credit for re-watching favorites is always nice too!
