13. A Page of Madness (1926)

Image

Without titles and intended to be screened with a live narrator, it is hard to follow what is going on in this Japanese silent film. Set inside an insane asylum though, any such confusion is thematically appropriate, adding a nightmarish feel to the proceedings and with everything from distortion to dissolve special effects and shadows/lighting to play with whether the husband or wife appears imprisoned, the movie is a visual assault on the senses.

14. Paths to Paradise (1925)

Image

If slow to warm up, once this comedy gets going, it rarely lets up. Highlights include lead actor Raymond Griffith trying to jump around the path of a flashlight shaken by a security guard at night, and Griffith and lead actress Betty Compson infiltrating a high class party, performing parlor games to cover up their attempts to crack a safe. The film also concludes nicely on an exciting chase sequence, though the actual final reel is reportedly missing.

An early career Cecil B. DeMille movie that makes no attempt to mask the influence of the story of Cinderella. Some of the parallels are fun, but any such comparisons and contrasts are all that the film has going for it. The film is so burdened with longwinded title cards that it quickly becomes akin to reading a picture book. DeMille tries out some nifty techniques here though (dollar signs appearing in eyes; jump cuts during a fantasy sequence).

Week 2(ish) Stats and Challenge Update

Users
Through the 2nd week of September, we've had 19 participants in the Silent Era challenge, and we'd love to have even more! psychotronicbeatnik has quietly led the way with 39 watches currently, with jeroeno (26), jdidaco (20), and sol (15) rounding out the double-digits club. Those four are in double-digits, and only 7 folks have five or more watches; participation seems to be a bit muted this month. The average participant has 7.68 points, and would rank 8th.

Leader board is up-to-date and maintained in the first post.

Side Challenge: Three Decades
Through the 2nd week of September, we have already had one person complete the bonus challenge! Congrats to psychotronicbeatnik for watching a film from every year from 1900-1929. peeptoad is the only other person to complete the aught-block and is only missing 7 years in total.

Side challenge leader board is up-to-date and maintained in the first post.

Short Talk About Shorts
I track challenge data in a weird way, but it works for me. Each film/episode watched gets a row in my spreadsheet; so I track the title, year, and who watched it. But shorts weird things up - each short gets a row, but doesn't count for a full point. So one metric I find interesting is the number of rows vs. the number of points. The Mystery/etc. challenge had 1537 points and 1558 rows; a different of only 21 (1.37% more rows than points). This challenge, which is a lot more friendly to shorts, has 146 points and 241 rows; a difference of 95 (65.07% more rows than points).

Years
Films watched so far have ranged from 1895 to 1935, covering 35 unique years in film. 1922 is the most-watched year with 22 watches, followed by 1928 with 17 watches. Here's a list of watch count by year:

Spoiler Tag of the Week
One of my favorite part of hosting challenges is reading the captions people put on the spoiler tags. This week's winner is psychotronicbeatnik for "Hush" because John Mulaney has a bit about that word in one of his specials I just watched and it amuses me every time I see it. Congrats! :whistling:

Yep. IIRC correctly, it's 7 points for the lot, though verify that.

:rolleyes: You just had to fit that gag in there, didn't you? tehe In all seriousness though, I think that the other two Official Challenges this month might have something to do with it. Japan is a popular option and it's easy to come across 21st Century Japanese doubles. It might be worth considering running the Silent Era against a less popular country challenge should it gain enough support to be included in the 2020 challenge schedule. Oh, and thanks for thanks for the stats as always even if there's nothing particularly striking yet with multiple viewings this month.

Of course I had to. :P

There's a lot of things going on with this, and I think there's a mix of reasons for lower participation. Not that this has ever been a huge one, but participation is down over the past couple of years (though ahead of the pace for 2016, which was won with 40 points). People around here don't seem to naturally watch a lot of silents, so passive challenge participation is down (i.e., the people who play in challenges and record viewings, but don't go out of their way to alter viewing behavior). The popularity of the other challenges like you mentioned. There's not that many doubles. We've run this challenge enough times that many people who work on lists have largely completed what they want to. Etc.

And then there's people like me - I'm actually 4+ points into this challenge, but I haven't listed them out. I'm working the Kino Pravda shorts and planned to post them as a block, but I'm not quite finished and it's taking longer than I thought.

02. Mat, by Vsevolod Pudovkin (1926) 7,5/10

Somewhat too much ideology for me to entire accept the film, but the sens of detail, framing, and the great editing of the final sequence certainly make this movie stand out.

03. Michael, by Carl T. Dreyer (1924) 8/10

Michael's storytelling is impressive and masterful. There are at least 3 shots that enter my list of favorite shots.

04. La galerie des monstres, by Jaque Catelain (1924) 7/10

The freak show sequences are impressive, but the story is not really surprising.

Side Challenge: Three Decades
Through the 2nd week of September, we have already had one person complete the bonus challenge! Congrats to psychotronicbeatnik for watching a film from every year from 1900-1929. peeptoad is the only other person to complete the aught-block and is only missing 7 years in total.
I'm working on it! B) My goal is to see at least enough to have completed this side challenge by month's end. I only have 7 more and they will be feature length (not shorts). No way in hell I could finish this if they all had to be feature length. If I have time in addition I'll see Aelita, but I already have on for 1924 so that goes on the bb, so only if unexpected spare time emerges. Thanks for the stats, as always...

@max and sol- when we did the challenge polls and discussion last year I recall several people saying they wanted to minimize the ease of triples, and this month's lineup eliminated them. I agree, that and the other challenges being easier to pair are why participation in this one is lower. I plan on coming back into form (such as it is) next month for horror. My best effort in that challenge should net me, oh.... maybe 29th place. If I'm lucky. :whistling:

A couple of steps above Three Ages, but it is still a disappointment upon revision. There is a lot of fun to be had in Keaton scurrying about, trying not to get shot and contending with an over-enthusiastic hat-fetching dog while trying to come up with excuses to stay inside. It is nine minutes in before Keaton even enters the film though, and 30 minutes elapse before he encounters a feuding brother. The dressed up cow is unforgettable though.

Spoiler Tag of the Week
One of my favorite part of hosting challenges is reading the captions people put on the spoiler tags. This week's winner is psychotronicbeatnik for "Hush" because John Mulaney has a bit about that word in one of his specials I just watched and it amuses me every time I see it. Congrats! :whistling:
A very quiet 'thank you' is in order. Thinking of Guy Maddin's Careful as I oh so carefully type this. Wouldn't want to cause an avalanche...

3. Underground (1928)

This was a real treat. A working-class love rectangle that starts with a jaunty spirit before taking a hard turn into drama halfway through. The title refers both to London's mass transit system, where the first and last scenes take place and for which one the main characters works, and to the roiling emotions just below the surface of humdrum life.

This was the second movie directed by Anthony Asquith, only 26 years old at the time of release. I've now seen five of his movies, and I'd rate two of them as masterpieces (The Browning Version and A Cottage on Dartmoor). Underground is almost at their level. It features some of the stylistic hallmarks of Dartmoor and other great movies from the late silent era, like a propensity for match cuts, dramatic framing, chiaroscuro, and effective use of location. It's not perfect. A few of the stylistic flourishes are excessive, and the acting worsens as the movie moves into melodrama. But I give this movie a high recommendation and have added it to my 500<400 list. Asquith deserves much wider recognition.

A seemingly necessary Erich von Stroheim double -- though it turns out his similarly nefarious seducer in each is pretty much all they have in common.

Silent RunningShow
1. A Sailor-Made Man (1921)
2. Battling Butler (1926)
3. Three Ages (1923)
4. Four Sons (1928)
5. Dr. Jack (1922)
6. The Matinee Idol (1928)
7. Seven Footprints to Satan (1929)
8. The Cat and the Canary (1927)
9. The Last of the Mohicans (1920)
10. The Ten Commandments (1923)
11. The Eleventh Year. (1928)
12. A Girl in Every Port (1928)
13. A Page of Madness (1926)
14. Paths to Paradise (1925)
15. Forbidden Fruit (1921)
16. Our Hospitality (1923) REVISION

17. Blind Husbands (1919)

Image

Erich von Stroheim provides a solid performance as the creepy seducer in a love triangle here and the other main players are okay, but none of them have especially well developed characters (we never know why he neglects her, why she puts up with it etc). The story also moves along at a snail's pace, only really becoming intense in the final 20 minutes when two characters ascend a dangerous mountain with some great vertigo-inducing shots.

18. Foolish Wives (1922)

Image

Along similar lines to Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Erich von Stroheim plays as a con-man who lives at a luxurious villa and poses as nobility to fleece the "foolish wives" of wealthy aristocrats. The story here is played seriously though and not for laughs and few characters are likeable, whether it be von Stroheim and his scheming cousins or the gullible wives they con. The film also feels a bit repetitive at 2.5 hours (and it was meant to be much longer).

Kino-pravda No. 23 (1925, 19m)
New York, Broadway (1896, 1m)
In Youth, Beside the Lonely Sea (1925, 5m)

Kino-pravda were nice looks into Russian history, but not exactly cinematic. New York, Broadway was just street footage, but Lonely Sea was a neat little early "widescreen" short with some clever editing.

And I'm finally on the board. :circle:

The final few minutes are both heartwarming and funny here, and there are some funny bits and pieces involving a mischievous toddler and an over-the-top sermon, but it is really odd seeing the Tramp as a hardened criminal. He softens by the end of the film and reform his ways a bit, but within the economical 47 minute runtime there are not quite enough scenes dedicated to him falling in love with the town/residents for his softening to really gel.

2. Lady Windermere's Fan (Lubitsch, 1925). Not bad. It has a bit of the Lubitsch Touch and of course benefits from being based on a play by Oscar Wilde. Been wanting to watch this for a long time, just never got around to it until now.

1. Steamboat Bill, Jr. (Reisner & Keaton, 1928). REWATCH
