I think it took me about 10 minutes into the film before I asked my wife "has there been a cut yet?" And I kept looking for one. So then I glanced at IMDB trivia, and yeah - not a single cut in the film. They got the entire film shot on the fourth take (first three had technical issues). Beautiful costuming and sets (I mean, that location!). That was a hell of a rewarding experience.

While I was kind of expecting a more powerhouse final episode, I would still chalk Season 5 up as the strongest of the series, with Season 4 close behind. All the fakery stuff -- from all ends -- is extremely compelling in the final season. The first three seasons are, however, certainly valuable for establishing the characters and dynamics that inform the last two seasons, so I don't know if I would recommend skipping the first three, but maybe I would just tell anybody still stuck in the first three seasons to be patient. I don't really rate TV series per se, but if I was going to:

Season 5 - 10/10
Season 4 - 9/10
Season 3 - 7/10
Season 1 - 7/10
Season 2 - 6/10

17 days of watching. One day slower than it took max to get through the series. But then, I doubt he was also trying to fit in Russian sci-fi/fantasy films while he ploughed through the series. :wacko:

And now, you must excuse me while I finally check the series on iCM. :sweat: Over 60 hours of watching; that's by far the most I have ever viewed for a single check. :o

Incredible stuff - must be one hell of a satisfying check, this one. I still can't really decide which of the last three seasons I liked the most, and season 2 I enjoyed very much too, but it's been too long that even a rewatch is, at this point, probably justified.

Redemption! Death to our life! and the comforting answer: you will all find annihilation and be redeemed!

Yeah, I did pretty well in the wife department. She has this interest in Russian history at the moment (reading a book on the subject) and is starting to learn Russian, so "Hey - let's watch a movie about Russian history" was a remarkably easy sell. :banana:

A quick reminder that we do have a [TRIPLE] challenge running all year.
viewtopic.php?f=9&t=4129

We count all your doubles and triples in these three challenges, but only if you also post them there.

Incredible stuff - must be one hell of a satisfying check, this one. I still can't really decide which of the last three seasons I liked the most, and season 2 I enjoyed very much too, but it's been too long that even a rewatch is, at this point, probably justified.
Satisfying yes, but sad too since it finally felt like everything was coming altogether in the last two seasons; I feel a bit empty in that there is nothing else to view, however, I do think that rewatching the series (way down the track) would be interesting since I obviously have a much better grasp on the myriad of characters by the end than I did when they were all plopped on me in Season 1.

17 days of watching. One day slower than it took max to get through the series. But then, I doubt he was also trying to fit in Russian sci-fi/fantasy films while he ploughed through the series. :wacko:

And now, you must excuse me while I finally check the series on iCM. :sweat: Over 60 hours of watching; that's by far the most I have ever viewed for a single check. :o
Just noir and critics lists. :P

PS: I always find it satisfying to check all the individual episodes too, in case you want to go that route: https://www.icheckmovies.com/lists/the+ ... z+of+fury/
Oh, I didn't realise that you watch the series for 2017's Critics List Challenge - which you still didn't win even with those 60 points behind you. :satstunned: Okay, must not get complacent in these final few days. I know that Roger is yet to post here, and I don't know how many other participants are playing this round Invisible Man style...

Eh; I'm not big into checking TV. The only reason why I have checked 'The Wire' and countless other miniseries is because they are on an Official list. I know that I have seen every episode of 'Seinfeld', the original 'X Files' etc., and I don't really need the iCM checks to remind myself... but thanks for the suggestion.

As the young Vietnam vets here describe their training and conditioning to believe that "the enemy is no longer is a human being" and that "anything we did was okay" since it was apparently in their country's interest, this documentary paints a chilling portrait of how war can test one's moral fibre. Listening to over 90 minutes of such testimony does have a slight numbing effect and the film gets less powerful as it progresses. Still, it is one surefire curious account of not only what occurred, but the struggle of the soldiers to take responsibility.

But at the bottom, the immanent philosopher sees in the entire universe only the deepest longing for absolute annihilation, and it is as if he clearly hears the call that permeates all spheres of heaven: Redemption! Redemption! Death to our life! and the comforting answer: you will all find annihilation and be redeemed!

Ebert? Fuck that shit. Jonathan Rosenbaum!Show
1. Aerograd (Aleksandr Dovzhenko, 1935)
2. Entuziazm (Simfoniya Donbassa) / Enthusiasm (Dziga Vertov, 1931)
3. Matinee (Joe Dante, 1993) (re-watch)
4. Ivan (Aleksandr Dovzhenko, 1932)
5. Dishonored (Josef von Sternberg, 1931)
6. Thunderbolt (Josef von sternberg, 1929)

I'm pretty much on board with JR when it comes to seeing Dishonored as unfairly neglected - at least up until now, when we have the nice new Criterion box set with all of their American collaborations - though I wouldn't after one viewing pick it as the best, or even second best (those are probably The Devil is a Woman and The Scarlet Empress at the moment). In a recent update to his comments on it, in an article on great 30s movies he argues that it may be that it has the most to say about the real world, and that it's more morally serious than the others - less a baroque fantasy. Maybe - I'd suggest that it may be also a matter of it's relative lack of visual splendor compared to many of the others, though it's certainly beautiful enough if gauged against the work of lesser mortals than Sternberg. Also - no Dietrich singing, and I can't offhand think of another starring role that she had where she didn't sing at least one song, though she does play piano a few times (no idea if it's really her playing that we hear). It's a pretty standard story in some respects, a Mata Hari-like hooker who becomes a spy for her country and ultimately has to pay for it, and for love, and while I enjoyed it all the way through it really wasn't until quite near the end that everything clicked for me and the emotional power of the thing worked. Also notable for Victor McLaglen in a much more restrained role than usual as the Russian officer who is the catalyst for Marlene's ultimate decision.

What a difference a great cast can make, eh? While the earlier Thunderbolt has a lot of great qualities, including some of the usual visual tropes that we see in other films of the director, like his focus on animals - a dog here that attaches itself to the title character, even more a main character itself than Dietrich's cat is in Dishonored, it fails to hold up, at least for me, due in large part to the relatively dull and stagy acting of the principals, Fay Wray (the woman caught between virtuous and innocent Bob and perpetual felon Thunderbolt), Richard Arlen (Bob) and especially George Bancroft as Thunderbolt. Bancroft got an Oscar nom, so either the Academy was as out of it in those days as it is now, or I am, because this is as artificial a leading man performance as I've seen in a long time. The basic storyline of the bad guy getting the good guy framed, and both being sentenced to death, is a good one, and there are lots of good individual scenes including one which tracks the lovable mutt as it determinedly follows Thunderbolt, but it's really undermined by much of the acting, though the humorous Warden (Tully Marshall) enlivens things quite a bit. Still very much worth seeing IMO but not for me one of the director's best.

7. Velikiy uteshitel / The Great Consoler (Lev Kuleshov, 1933)

This wild story of O. Henry in jail, trying to help out a fellow inmate, then imagining that inmate going free and leading a totally different life, intertwined with another story about a reader of O. Henry and her relationship with the cop who is responsible for the inmate's travails, is one of the best early examples I've seen of a complex, interlocking narrative that combines "fantasy" and "reality" to the point where they are indivisible or at least equally unreal and unreliable. It's also very funny and very poignant, satirical and more seriously outraged at the horrors of capitalism in equal measures, and offers something of an early look at and critique of the American western. Absolutely brilliant and one of those films that seems almost sui generis, certainly I can't think of many films from the 30s that are so narratively inventive. My favorite film of the challenges this month so far, easily.

8. SHORTS 36 + 10 + 15 = 61 minutes
a) The Metaphor (King Vidor, 1980) - an enjoyable examination of where art comes from, and the influences of the visual arts on film and vice versa, in the form of an extended conversation between Vidor and the painter Andrew Wyeth, who was hugely influenced by Vidor's 1925 The Big Parade
b) Lmno (Robert Breer, 1978) - I like the half dozen Breer films I've seen so far and this is certainly fits into the same patterns, with abstractions interacting with (primitive) figures in unusual ways; overall my favorite at the moment is probably Fuji but I really ought to sit down and watch a bunch at once sometime, and maybe I can come up with a more articulate way of dealing with them.
c) Essai d'ouverture (Luc Moullet, 1988) - the director, and occasionally other people, make many attempts to open bottles and cans of Coke, mostly 1-liter glass bottles with theoretically twist-off caps. Very funny and "minimalist" though I think there are larger implications about capitalism and consumer culture at work here also.

9. Vesyolye rebyata / Jolly Fellows / Moscow Laughs (Grigoriy Aleksandrov, 1934)

At the beginning of this first Soviet musical comedy we are treated to portraits of Chaplin, Keaton and Lloyd, and then told they're not going to be here - clearly a reference to both the popularity of American films at the time, and to the kind of slapstick we're going to be treated with - though to my mind the comedy, at least in the first half, owes more to Laurel and Hardy than to the pictured clowns. This is a hugely enjoyable and often over-the-top mix of broad humor and romantic musical longing, with a put-upon shepherd who wants to be a great musician being mistaken for one, falling for the rich girl, but in turn being loved by the poor girl that he initially ignores. You can guess how it will all turn out, and if there's a fault here it's probably that after having a very inventive opening - with a wonderful long tracking shot as the shepherd sings a song about smiling and being happy, and then a riotous party sequence involving lots of farm animals who just have to follow their master everywhere he goes - it's a bit more prosaic, even dare I saw it, too Hollywood in it's ending. But it's still pretty cool and another example of just how creative musicals could be in this decade, wherever they were from.

Not me; I saw the first of those already, and not that long ago; the second I definitely feel I should know, but can't figure out offhand - somebody else I'm sure will come along and spill it.

Never intended to be seen by itself on its own, this early Orson Welles project was created to accompany a stage play in a multimedia experiment. Shot as a silent comedy, there are plenty of comedic shenanigans; the best: a chase through stacked boxes, viewed from above. The plot makes little sense though without the stage play accompanying the action. What does come across quite well here though is the push Welles showed in Kane towards expanding beyond traditional cinema sets; there are several exterior locations and some shots that look up at the actors.

But at the bottom, the immanent philosopher sees in the entire universe only the deepest longing for absolute annihilation, and it is as if he clearly hears the call that permeates all spheres of heaven: Redemption! Redemption! Death to our life! and the comforting answer: you will all find annihilation and be redeemed!

74. Winter Soldier (1972)
75. Too Much Johnson (1938)

76. Let's Make Love (1960)

Image

A charming film despite the silly, suggestive title, though it takes a good 15 minutes for the mistaken identity plot to get underway. The film milks the dynamic of Yves Montand's billionaire playing an actor playing himself well. There is also a very funny bit in which Montand manages to get back a bracelet, and with his genuine desire to make people laugh and so on, he is quite appealing. It never seems right how he steals Monroe away from her boyfriend and the songs tend to interrupt the flow of the story, but this is generally a delight.

77. Down with Love (2003)

Image

Fashioned after the Rock Hudson/Doris Day films of the era, this is a remarkable movie that not only pays tribute to those motion pictures but manages to take the gist of them to new extremes with the double entendre gags more explicit and sexually suggestive than was allowed in the Production Code early 1960s. The split screens from Pillow Talk are taken to especially hilarious extremes. Homage aside, Down with Love also works nicely as a look at balancing extreme feminism with realism, plus the sets and costumes are simply gorgeous.

04. Arsenal, by Aleksandr Dovzhenko (1929) 7,5/10

Incredible pictures, but the propaganda doesn't work well with me, so I'm visually impressed, yet can't really be thrilled about Dovzhenko's films...

05. Sherman's March, by Ross McElwee (1985) 5/10

Even though this doc taught me a few things, I found it too long, dispersed, and narcissic... I appreciate how it films people from the American South, but not much else.

01. Vesyolye rebyata / Moscow laughs, by Grigori Aleksandrov (1934) 6/10
02. Winds across the Everglades, by Nicholas Ray (1958) 6/10

52. The Gunfighter (1950) - 8/10
ICM
July Challenge: Image
But at the bottom, the immanent philosopher sees in the entire universe only the deepest longing for absolute annihilation, and it is as if he clearly hears the call that permeates all spheres of heaven: Redemption! Redemption! Death to our life! and the comforting answer: you will all find annihilation and be redeemed!

Narrated by a one Tito de Pinho but made to sound like Marcel Dalio himself, I, Dialo is a highly interesting pseudo-autobiographical film that supposes what it might be like to have made a film career out of being a "character actor", typecast for certain roles and rarely cast as anyone beyond those. The film also looks at how Dialo's typecasting evolved though and changed as he crossed countries as his looks signified different things in different places.

One A.M. by contrast is a far less interesting project: Chaplin comedic shenanigans as he navigates his way through his house after coming home drunk one night. The idea is pretty decent as far as slapstick comedies go, however, everything is so elaborate that the film lacks the down-to-earth charm of a Keaton or Lloyd short. There is no way that anybody has a pendulum clock that swings across a doorway in their house, not even the greatest of hunters would have so many stuffed animals etc in his home, and the list goes on.
