115. Crush (1992)
Director: Alison Maclean
A nice little pot boiler neo noir of a flick that I dug quite a bit.
:huh: ? :woot: !! I'm not sure if you participate in the 500<400 exercise, but this could definitely do with your help if you added it to your ballot. :)

Directed by Kirsten Johnson

Image

Documentary cinematography Johnson cuts and pastes various footage she has shot over the years into this stream-of-consciousness movie. Some of her shots are breathtaking and the transitions between unalike footage are well handled with similar movements. There is also an interesting focus on characters talking without their faces seen (see above). The film exhausts itself long before the end though as the aimless structure makes it all feel highly random. Hearing Johnson sneeze, gasp, cough and mumble over outtakes is not really helpful either.

30. Growing Up Female (1971)

Directed by Julia Reichert

Image

An assortment of girls and women - ranging from students, to teachers to parents - are asked provocative questions about the position of women in society and what it means to "grow up female" in this aptly titled documentary. The questions shed a critical light on gender roles and how even innocuous aspects like dolls and female attire position young girls to grow up in certain ways. If a bit repetitive and limited in scope, this remains an acute time capsule of conservative views of the time, some of which are sadly still widely held today.

1. La Pointe-Courte (Varda, 1955). Not bad, a bit on the rigid/stylistic side, but it makes a nice counterpoint to the relaxed atmosphere of the fishing village. A good debut.

3. Flickorna /The girls (Swe 68) - Mai Zetterling
First film I've seen by this director. Feminist, quite surreal at times but it hangs together well, I thought. Since it revolves around a traveling production of Lysistrata I guess a case could be made for including it in the war challenge, but I won't.

This has some charming moments as each of the three confirmed bachelor gradually awaken paternal instincts that they never thought they had, but the comedy-based first hour here is far superior to the rest. The gags vary from fish-out-water funniness as they have trouble finding the right size diapers and push the patience of a female pharmacist, to pure zaniness with a drug smuggling subplot that has them shadowed by incompetent policemen. The final half-hour or so is pretty sentimental stuff by comparison and only goes in obvious directions.

The concepts behind 2 Into 1 and Frank Film are great, with lip-syncing and overlapping audio tracks respectively. The Red Book has some really cool animation and audio effects, though the narrative had me at a bit of a loss. A Girl's Own Story is an interesting collection of vignettes of an impressionable teenager discovering sexuality while growing up in a household with two parents who do not speak to each other, but a little bit too fragmented for its own good. The animation in Scratch and Crow was okay, but I didn't get much out of the fim. Aerial did not make much of an impression on me either, but at least had great coinciding images and music/sound effects.

4. The Loveless (1981)

Bigelow's debut feature and Willem Dafoe's first star role, in between his uncredited cameo in Heaven's Gate and his credited cameo in The Hunger. The movie is basically an homage to The Wild One, with Dafoe smart enough to do his own thing and not try to copy Brando (and end up in Michael Cera "Wally Brando" territory). There's not much plot, which makes the main appeal the dialogue, which is so tough guy florid that it becomes turgid. Great soundtrack, though, partly by Robert Gordon, who co-stars. And you can see the talent with visuals (specifically night-time scenes) that would pay such dividends for Bigelow a few years later in Near Dark.

33. Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1992)

Directed by Fran Rubel Kuzui

Image

This comedy feels like an attempt to blend the satire of Heathers with a vampire movie, a connection reinforced by the mention of Christian Slater and the bitchiness of Swanson and her cheerleader friends. The operative word though is "attempt" because with Swanson's kickboxing and the over-the-top vampire antagonists always in focus, the film does little with the teen characters - Swanson included. Some bits are genuinely funny here though: David Arquette hovering outside a window; a vampire basketball match; the school administrator.

34. A Very Murray Christmas (2015)

Directed by Sofia Coppola

Image

Bill Murray playing himself certainly has potential, but this TV special is simply never all that funny. In fact, it is downright corny at times as Murray coaches Jason Schwartzman on love, and the plot gradually evaporates to make room for one musical number after another. Some of the movie-themed gags work, poking fun at the mediocrity of Murray's then-recent The Monuments Men, and Michael Cera tries his best with his over-the-top ideas for Murray's Christmas special. Coppola also puts some great images to film, but to little avail.

Not as good as I remember, but still hugely influential on my sense of humor and middle-school age.

With many fat jokes and flatulence gags and an excruciating extended bit with Dave Sheridan in drag, this comedy's mixed reputation is understandable, but it is actually very decent overall. Elastic-faced Sheridan is excellent throughout as he gradually progresses from being optimistic and safety-concerned to cynical and prepared to take risks. There are some very funny moments too that will likely appeal to anyone who dislikes Hanson's music (with a hilarious cameo) and the incorporation of Scott Baio into the plot works very well.

This was a neat documentary on wall art in California. I think in general I prefer Varda's docs to her fiction films for the most part (although I did dig Cleo 5 to 7).

The two from 1913 are part of the "Pioneers: First Women Filmmakers" collection available on Netflix. A House Divided was good enough, but didn't stick with me. Suspense was fantastic - very suspenseful with some clever shots and editing; a very simple but very powerful film.

The Marina Experiment was something else entirely. This is a documentary short about a woman who discovered her fathers vast collection of documentation of EVERYTHING about her. Films, diaries, etc. She catalogued it all and edited it into a film. And it's the creepiest thing I've ever seen. Abuse and control through the lens of the cameraman, edited together by the subject. Mind-boggling. Available for free (link on the ICM page).

Best known for Nicole Kidman's against-type performance under heavy makeup that netted her a Golden Globe nomination, she certainly does well playing a dislikeable and grouchy yet not entirely unsympathetic character here. The out-of-order timeline full of flashbacks is a tad irksome though, but then it admittedly adds some extra punch to the story in the end. There are a couple of very well filmed, intense bank robberies in the mix too, however, this is generally a slow and plodding tale with strangely little sense of urgency to it.

37. The Rider (2017)

Directed by Chloé Zhao

This film is based on a true story and all the primary actors are pretty much cast as themselves, from the protagonist, to his actual father and sister (see above) to his best friend, wheelchair-bound and unable to speak after earlier suffering a similar accident. The chemistry between lead Brady Jandreau and best friend Lane Scott is especially genuine and affecting as Jandreau begins to consider whether he could one day end up like Scott. Add in some majestic horse riding against sunset shots and this is an engaging personal identity study.

121. Documenteur (1981)
Director: Agnès Varda
I couldn't really get into this one.

Image
122. Tiny Furniture (2010)
Director: Lena Dunham
This felt like a dry run for Dunham's equally shallow, obnoxious Girls. It seems like much of the humor revolved around how lazy and debased she was.

Image
123. Eadweard Muybridge, Zoopraxographer (1975)
Co-Director: Fay Andersen
Pretty fascinating doc on a nature photographer who pioneered camera techniques that pre-saged motion pictures. The narration courtesy of Dean Stockwell is a bit on the dry side but I'd still suggest it for anyone interested in the seeds of film history.

124. Visages villages (2017) a.k.a. Faces Places
Co-Director: Agnès Varda
Utterly delightful and one of my favorite Varda films. JR seemed like kind of a pretentious dick but Varda just seemed so charming and impish, it was hard to deny their quest of pasting giant photos on the sides of buildings.

125. Korotkie vstrechi (1968) a.k.a. Brief Encounters
Director: Kira Muratova
Another stagy melodrama that I had trouble getting very engaged with.

Appended rule:
-Please include the name of the filmmaker. Year would be helpful, but is not required.
Er, when exactly did you add that rule? This is the first time that I recall seeing this mentioned in the OP. Are you keeping track of which filmmakers are being watched the most often or something?

Whatever the case, yes - I can include this information from this point forward. If you need me to add it to the films that I have already seen though, let me know, since that would take a bit of looking up.
Well, basically, filmmaker is helpful, so I can make sure that it was actual directed by a woman (most films I know, but it's just helpful). Plus - if anyone wants to make statistics, that is great. Unfortunately, I won't have time to do that.

A lady director? What's next, Madame President?Show

1. Loin du Vietnam / Far From Vietnam (Agnès Varda & a bunch of French dudes, 1967)
2. La musica / The Music (Marguerite Duras & some French guy, 1967)
3. Go-yang-i-leul boo-tak-hae / Take Care of My Cat (Jae-eun Jeong, 2001) (re-watch)
4. Yeoseot gae ui siseon / If You Were Me (Jae-eun Jeong/Soon-rye Yim, 4 other Korean directors who happen to be guys, 2003)
5. Détruire dit-elle / Destroy, She Said (Marguerite Duras, 1969)
6. Pájaros de verano / Birds of Passage (Cristina Gallego & this bloke she's married to, 2018)
7. L'adolescente / An Adolescent Girl (Jeanne Moreau, 1979)
8. Jaune le soleil / Yellow the Sun (Marguerite Duras, 1971)

One of the director's most obscure films - I but I guess that's like saying one of Lav Diaz' longer films - and on a first viewing I'd have to say I'm not surprised. This is more difficult to comprehend on a narrative level than the previous two films or the next, Nathalie Granger, and it doesn't offer as much interest from a technical or aesthetic perspective either - the soundtrack isn't as dense or exciting, the visuals aren't that entrancing. Duras actually can make people sitting around, talking, walking back and forth in a room or two seem pretty interesting, but in this "story" about some people who may or may not be Jews, talking about crimes committed by another person who might be a Jew, and the connections in their minds between "Jew" and "communist", I really had no idea where things were going or what it all was going to add up to, and didn't much care. At least it was, like most of her films, fairly short, and we do get the great Michael Lonsdale in the last few minutes, and there were some moments where I started to feel like I was connecting a bit to what she was doing...but they faded quickly. I'm sure it will profit from another viewing some day - but less sure than I usually am with Duras. And less interested.

9. Nathalie Granger (Marguerite Duras, 1972) (re-watch)

This was the earliest Duras-directed film that I saw at a terrific retrospective at Facets in Chicago, in 1996 if I'm remembering right - they also showed the earlier Moderato cantabile which she scripted, and several later films. I had little memory of it - Jeanne Moreau's pant suit, and the black cat that wanders in and out of scenes throughout the film, and Gérard Depardieu's very funny performance as a washing-machine salesman who gets progressively more and more nervous as Moreau keeps asserting that he isn't a salesman. This I think is where the director's ability to juxtapose sound and image in a way that nobody else really had done comes into it's own, over most of the film. The radio with it's broadcasts about escaped criminals, the various sounds that may or may not be live from the set, the dialogues between Moreau and Lucia Bosé about Bosé's daughter and her problems in school, the piano music played by the daughter - or not - and a sense of odd mystery over everything, a suburban house that seems too large and where the front on the street doesn't seem to match the back on - a canal? A large pool? It all seems borderline surreal, without anything actually surreal happening, and I feel like I'm getting snatches of several "plots" mixed together in an order which I don't fully get. In short vintage Duras. I really need to start watching these films in the morning just after coffee though...

126. Unbroken (2014)
Director: Angelina Jolie
This should work much better than it does. The story itself is pretty damned remarkable but the directing and pacing of it is so stiff and uninteresting.

128d. The Fountain (2007)
Director: Lena Dunham
Dunham's first feature and a bunch of early short films. Very amateurish stuff but I definitely see a preoccupation with casual sexual provocation that remains in her work to this day.

5. Pasqualino Settebellezze (Wertmuller)
6. Eve's Bayou (Lemmons)

I have two questions about Pasqualino Settebellezze:
- Did this movie influence Coppola to put Ride of the Valkyries into Apocalypse Now?
- Was the whole opening sequence with the endless litany of "Oh, Yeah!" stolen from Kool-Aid Man and his catchphrase?
