Agnès Varda :rip:

Varda directing La Pointe Courte, this belongs here

:rip: I was delighted to see so many of Varda's films watched for this challenge this year. It's great to see her still being recognized for her originality, innovation and excellence. Watching Faces Places for the first time this year I noticed that she was slowing down physically so I'm not surprised by her passing. I hope her final days passed with more pleasure than pain and that somewhere she is reunited with Jacques Demy. It seems like he was always with her in spirit, even on this earth. I'm sad that there won't be a new Varda film to watch for this challenge in coming years but I still have several of her classics yet to see. Long live A.V.! :worship:

P.S. A great photo is worth repeating, Flavo - especially relevant for this challenge! :cheers:
I've seen several of her films this challenge and they all have a certain impish vibrancy to them even when the subject matter may be less than joyful. To your point, I do still have several of her films to watch so at least there's that.

Directed by Allison Anders

Image

With four distinct chapters, Four Rooms makes for uneven viewing but gets more interesting as it plods along. The first segment is the weakest with run-of-the-mill sorcery stuff. The second tale is deliciously unpredictable though as he is pulled into an unusual situation involving a married couple, while the third segment is the best with Lana McKissack great as a feisty young girl who proves hard to babysit. Tim Roth is likeable as he grows gradually unhinged here and the film taps well into the madness after dark dynamic of After Hours et al.

Finally got around to this. And I quite enjoyed it - the story is super powerful and worth seeing. It definitely brings up a swirling mix of emotions for me, from inspiration at the bravery of those people to anger at the assholes on the other side of the bridge. Some of the directorial choices didn't jive with my tastes, but the story of the film came together and made for a great experience.

41. Megane AKA Glasses (2007, Naoko Ogigami) [DTC Nominee]
More comments in the 1>500<400 challenge thread, but this was an enjoyable slow contemplative film that just makes you happy.

155. Girlfriends (1978)
Director: Claudia Weill
Has echoes of Woody Allen from a female perspective of a woman who floats through life in a kind of self-sabotage mode. Not bad but felt meandering.

Image
156. Away from Her (2006)
Director: Sarah Polley
Beautifully written and acted but extremely sad, it's one of the better films I've seen about letting go.

Image
157-160. Young Black Jack (2015) E1-12
Director: Mitsuko Kase
A prequel to legendary Osamu Tezuka's Black Jack, the story of a black market highly skilled surgeon, Young Black Jack shows us how this extremely talented individual was driven to the shadows to perform his surgical artistry outside the law. It succumbs to overwrought melodramatics more than I'd care for but does offer an interesting snapshot in history (much of it takes place during and after the Vietnam War). Overall, it was ok but could've been better.

Image
161. 33 sceny z zycia (2008) a.k.a. 33 Scenes from Life
Director: Malgorzata Szumowska
I couldn't get into this one at all. Depressing and unlikable...

Image
162-165. A Place Further Than The Universe (2018) E1-13
Director: Atsuko Ishizuka
Absolutely delightful series about a group of high school girls to decide to travel to Antarctica for various reasons and bond in the process. The character development is great and it really shows the hardships and obstacles involved in getting to Antarctica if you are determined enough to do so.

Image
166. Memoria (2016)
Co-Director: Nina Ljeti
Based on a James Franco book, the film is interesting at times but also suffers from a kind of aimlessness. Also while most of the performances are very naturalistic, Franco's portrayal of the teacher feels like something out of a totally different movie.

Image
167. The Decline of Western Civilization Part III (1998)
Director: Penelope Spheeris
While still hard-hitting and faschinating, this third Decline doc isn't as alive, feeling bogged down by the dire situation in which its subjects find themselves, coming across as more pitiful and depressing than anything else. If you are interested in this kind of film and want to seen an even more raw, unfiltered approach to similar subject matter, the doc Black Metal Veins offers a similar study.

Image
168. The Dish & the Spoon (2011)
Director: Alison Bagnall
Greta Gerwig was good in this but it felt a little too consciously artsy for my tastes.

Image
169. Muumi ja punainen pyrstötähti (2010) a.k.a. Moomins and the Comet Chase
Director: Maria Lindberg
The first Moomins film I think I've seen make it to the US, its charming stop motion animation belies the dark theme of a comet threatening to destroy the world and Moomins on a journey to prevent it. It's actually kinda interesting. I started playing the new game Yoshi's Crafted World today and the visuals in the game reminded me a lot of the animation in this film. I guess its the little coincidences that keep life interesting.

Always a perfect nervous everyman, Biggs is very decent here and the film has some zany moments has he contends with vengeful doctors (see above) and gunplay as part of his first evening driving escorts around. The dramatic side of the film does not really click though. His wife is too trusting and accepting of him driving around escorts for credibility, and his woes about impending parenthood are trite. Not all of the comedy works either though, and the film never feels half as raunchy or daring as it could have been had it toned down the drama.

I notice that the Agnès Varda project mentioned above is marked down for 5 points here and only 2 in the French Challenge. Don't know whether that might be an oversight, jd. Fantastic viewings!
That's all, folks!

Roger!!! Wonderful viewings yourself! The point rules are different in both challenges, one says "For Mini-Series (40 minute episodes or longer) each episode counts as an entry", and the other, "For TV Series and Mini-Series 120 minutes counts as an entry." , hence the different countings!

The title is intentionally misleading here with little in the way of nudity and a plot that is more about the love/hate friendship between the girls than seduction... or devil worship or murder. If refreshingly different in the outset though, the film does not really explore any new territory as a supernatural horror movie. Diablo Cody's dialogue has some memorable quips (especially regarding Wikipedia and Rocky Horror) but it is not an especially funny or satirical movie either. There are surprisingly significant lesbian undertones throughout though.

48. Making Mr. Right (1987)

Directed by Susan Seidelman

Image

This android comedy adds little to the artificial intelligence debate and most of the pseudoscience regarding how the bot functions is shied over as Seidelman plays the premise for laughs with mixed results. The best bits come from the android having a date (to his own oblivion) with a pushy Laurie Metcalf (who mistakes him for a scientist) and a discussion over the bot passed out on a kitchen floor after sexual intercourse. The film is mostly just worthwhile for John Malkovich's double performance. Ann Magnuson is really spunky too though.

49. Bernice Bobs Her Hair (1976)

Directed by Joan Micklin Silver

Image

Shelley Duvall delivers well as the title 1920s character here who gradually grows more confident and outgoing as the film progresses. As per the title, the big turning point comes when she announces that she is going to "bob" her hair - something that piques the interest of her male companions to an absurd degree. It is the haircut itself though, a shot that lingers on her freshly cut hair, and the aftermath that really makes the film though. Clocking in at under an hour, this is a bit too brief a film to really resonate as a character study though.

Sometimes very decent movies can have stupid-sounding titles and this is one of those cases. The leads here share great chemistry together, and above all else, the film works as both an action thriller and outright comedy. And while the US still has a few hours to go, it's just about to hit April with midnight approaching here, so that's it for me this year. An even 50 and a good (if not great) film to end on. Thanks for hosting, allison. It's been a blast.

So much missed opportunity.

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)
9. Nathalie Granger (Marguerite Duras, 1972) (re-watch)
10. Captain Marvel (Anna Bden and this male person, 2019)

Cinema. Most of what little I'd read about this - and not stuff from the froth-at-the-mouth MRAs and Gamergate types - wasn't too promising, so I went in with fairly low expectations. But superhero movies continue to confound me - whenever I've just about given up, and am telling myself that at the very least I shouldn't be paying money to see them - I end up pleasantly surprised by the next one, and so it was in this case. Not that it's any great shakes exactly - and the editing of the story and the way the dreams/memories of Carol Danvers' former life keep popping up seems needlessly complicated and useless - but it's a fairly well put together origin story IMO, with a really terrific supporting (really co-lead) performance by Samuel L. Jackson, who finally gets to put some meat on Nick Fury's character. Jackson gets most of the character development here and is the most fun to watch - Ben Mendelsohn is also good as the lead Skrull - but it is of course Brie Larson's performance and character that take center stage, and she's...OK. I don't have much of an opinion of Larson overall - she's great in Room, sure, but she hasn't really had an impact in the other few films I've seen her in, and she seems here to not always be on the same page as everyone else when it comes to the switching from comedy to drama; I know she's done some comedy in the past but I'm not sure I always buy her in the "light" scenes, there's an intensity about her that doesn't go away, and it makes her much more believable in the action and dramatic sequences. And am I the only one who sees a connection between some of the more overtly feminist moments in this film (there aren't that many) - like where we see her as a child getting up after being knocked down or falling off a bike - and some similar scenes in Buffy, especially the very last episode? That's all to the good IMO, whether intentional or not. Ultimately an above-average genre film with some great moments that doesn't quite hit all it's marks.

11. India Song (Marguerite Duras, 1975) (re-watch)

First seen at Facets Multimeda in Chicago, September 1995 in a Duras retrospective - they did most of her films, as well as several that she had just written, but I only managed a few of them. This one I watched twice in a row - one of the very few times I've ever done that, in the cinema or at home - in part because I was tired and dozed a bit during the first viewing, and in part because of inadequate subtitles, and other difficulties in viewing and appreciating this thorny masterpiece. And masterpiece it still seems to me, 23 1/2 years later and with a lot more "difficult" cinema under my belt. All of Duras is challenging, this one perhaps no more or less so than the others, but few of her films offer such a beautifully put together melding of sound and image - a soundtrack of various voices that seem mostly to be commenting on the action slightly before it happens, sometimes reading the dialogues that the principal characters - acted by Delphine Seyrig and Michael Lonsdale among others - might be saying; music and sound effects that are likewise often off-putting and challenging what we see on screen rather than correlating precisely to it - and images of a fading, declining and dissolute, bored European aristocracy in India, in the days just before World War II. It's often mockingly said that this is a boring film about boring people and boring lives and I suppose that's true, but I find the images beautiful enough, and the melancholy powerful enough - and sometimes it's something more than melancholy, as Lonsdale's lasting screams that go on for several minutes near the end, the screams of a man who knows he will never have what he wants, reminds me achingly of Henry James' The Beast in the Jungle, the most powerful testament to wasted life I know. This doesn't perhaps have the emotional pull of James but in it's depiction of an ennui that traffics with guilt, racism, and repression, it's pretty potent all the same.

12. Cléo de 5 à 7 / Cleo from 5 to 7 (Agnès Varda, 1962) (re-watch)

Image

RIP, Mother of the New Wave. I saw this first around - 2005/6 I think? Not sure why not earlier, though I don't know what it's availability was earlier; Vagabond was the only Varda film I saw in the cinema, sometime in the late 80s, and I didn't get around to exploring her work in any meaningful way until much later. Le bonheur might have been the first film I saw on video and it knocked me out, and so I went on to others like this one. And while I really liked it initially, there was something that held me back; I think it may have been Christine Machand's performance, which struck me initially as rather fake - but this time around I see that fakeness for what it's supposed to be - a young, vain, perhaps spoiled (how does she have that cool apartment when she's only recorded a couple of songs? we don't know her family situation but I'd guess she comes from money) young woman finally starting to open her eyes, on what might be the worst day of her life as she frets and waits for the real-time hour-and-a-half of the film for news of whether or not she may have a fatal illness. Marchand doesn't go too far, doesn't draw this change - which happens visually, too, with the costume change from light to dark dress at the halfway point - into something obvious, and I'd have to say this time around it seemed a marvellous performance. And the editing and photography as we journey around the city, the minimal, subtle music by the also-recently-departed Michel Legrand - all capture a moment both in our young heroine's life and in Paris as the Algeria War rages - but not for much longer - and just a short time before Vietnam and the youth movements of the decade come into full motion. Spring just before summer - and fall - perhaps? Pure passion.

my top FTV = Sedmikrásky aka Daisies (1966, Vera Chytilová) :thumbsup:
Good choice! I love that film! :thumbsup:
It was actually pretty close between Daisies and Hurt Locker, but Vera won out (and I mean that both literally and with regards to the meaning of her name). I love Chytilová 's story and, on the heels of both Daisies and Wolf's Hole, I blind-bought 2 more of her films. :wub:
