9. Upgrade (2018)
I recently read a book about transhumanism called To Be a Machine, and this movie felt very ripped from the pages. It's far better than a description of the plot would make you predict.

10. Gumshoe (1971)
Enjoyable spoof/homage to hard-boiled pictures with Albert Finney as a barely employed comedian who wants to fashion himself as a brother seamus.The story doesn't make much sense, but hard-boiled stories often don't. There's plenty of great dialogue here, which is really the only reason to see the movie.

11. The Irishman (2019)
Marty gets the gang back together, including a retired Joe Pesci who has only made two other movies in the past 20 years, for the 11th longest movie I have ever seen. It's not a Scorsese masterpiece, but it's pretty good, especially when you compare it to the dozens of mediocre mob movies that people have been making over the past 30 years in imitation of Goodfellas. The main highlight here is the impromptu dialogue, the mini-conversations the mobsters have in between the conversations about important things -- topics include fish, smoking habits, and how late one can arrive at a meeting without causing offense (my father has more strict limits than Jimmy Hoffa's 10 minutes when it comes to tardiness). The biggest problem is that the main character remains a closed book for most of the movie. Only in the final minutes is he allowed some complexity, and even then the result feels a little shallow. Also, the title is a bit unfortunate given that there was a mob movie called Kill the Irishman a few years ago, and De Niro's character in Goodfellas is also referred to as the Irishman several times.

I did really enjoy some of the references to other movies. During one scene, some music plays that sounds like the Godfather theme but not quite. I had to look it up. It was actually the theme for Touchez pas au Grisbi. I also loved how Pesci told De Niro in one scene to meet a guy named Ferrie. That's David Ferrie, who Pesci himself played in Oliver Stone's atrocity JFK. And the scene where De Niro picks guns for a hit looked a lot like a similar scene from Taxi Driver.

Does it belong on a list?: Eh.. Don't get me wrong, this is a good movie. It's a tight action thriller with horror elements. It's competently well done and I enjoyed watching it. But it's not an upper tier movie. It doesn't really break any new ground and instead just recycles too many existing ideas (or homages, if you will).

As a message movie, Okja is far from subtle and the borderline comical caricature supporting characters lead to the tone of the project occasionally feeling off, but the central story is nevertheless powerful and told with flair. The visual effects used to create the creature are divine and Seo-hyun Ahn provides a strong turn too as the girl at the centre of the tale who finds herself pulled between animal activists and the evil corporation bigwigs.

66. The Crowd Roars -- Hawks, 1932.
67. The Irishman -- Scorsese, 2019.
68. Hana no ato a.k.a. After the Flowers -- Nakanishi, 2010.

Ai to kibô no machi is a very nice early effort for Oshima; it concerns a poverty-stricken boy who scams people by selling pigeons, which fly back to him so he can then resell him. Dark, but good.

Balkan ekspres had its ups and downs, but the story of a group of minor criminals masquerading as a band in Nazi-occupied Serbia had some really good moments and suspense.

The Constant Nymph is a British version of the film based on the Margaret Kennedy novel -- the more famous 1943 version stars Joan Fontaine and Charles Boyer, but I think I marginally prefer this 1933 version more. I'm not a BIG fan of the book or the movies overall, though...they're very soapy and pretty predictable.

Picture Snatcher was a very solid James Cagney picture where an ex-con tries to go straight as a crime photographer.

Pre-Code Men of Chance makes it very clear that Mary Astor is working as a prostitute when she's recruited in France to pose as a countess and beguile handsome gambler Ricardo Cortez. The two work nicely together, though the film isn't much without them.

Hawks's The Crowd Roars also has a lot of pre-Code stuff in it; it concerns James Cagney trying to help his little brother get a leg up in the world of sports car racing. This is a rare Cagney-Blondell pairing in which the two are not on the same side as lovers, pals, or relatives.

The Irishman...well, I'm glad I saw it in the theater, and I liked it, but good old Thelma could have done a bit more editing than she did and the picture might have been even better. Joe Pesci's restrained performance was particularly impressive.

I had some hopes for Hana no ato, because this samurai film uncommonly featured a swordswoman as its main character, but early in the film, I was preparing myself for serious disappointment: it seemed incredibly predictable and even somewhat soapy. Around the middle, though, it delighted me with a couple of unexpected turns, and it became interesting. It's no masterpiece, but an unusual viewing for samurai aficionados (I've seen a handful of other samurai films with female warriors/swordswomen, but not many), and not nearly as bad as it was shaping up at first.

30. 30 Minutes or Less (2011)

Image

The first twenty minutes do not flow too well here with the film constantly cutting between the pizza guy and bomb makers in a parallel plots. From the moment the plots converge though, the film rarely lets up with many laugh-out-loud moments at the expense of how everyone is such an amateur. The premise is pretty interesting too, like a more twisted variation of blackmail, with ambiguity as to how unhinged the bombers are unhinged.

And unfortunately with a couple Official list noirs left to squeze in this month, that is most likely it for me this month. :( I had intended to see a lot more, but with my Korean and Noir watch-lists being packed with Official films, it wasn't to be this year. At least I managed to end off with a vastly entertaining movie. Thanks for hosting, albajos!

Best films seen this month:

Doctor Sleep (2019) xxxxxxxxxxxxx Knives Out (2019) xxxxxxxxxxxxxx Deerskin (2019)
Image Image Image

All from 2019. <_< I need to get around a little bit more. At least I am getting out though -- all of those were theatrical viewings. :blink:

7. The Den (Zachary Donohue, 2013) - 6/10
A young student studies the habits of chat users on The Den, a chatting network (kinda like Omegle). During her research, she stumbles upon a video showing a seemingly real murder. Wanting to unravel the mysterious snuff recording, she plunges deeper down the rabbit hole and brings herself and her friends at high risk.

Being released one year prior to "Unknown User", Donohue's feature debut brought this topic to attention to the masses as a new horror subgenre. Taking a bit of "Megan is Missing", "Saw" and "8MM", "The Den" needs a bit to get going, evolves into an atmospheric cyber-thriller and gets over the top in the ending. The ending almost ruins the quite realistic build-up, but at least it is engaging. I didn't really care for any of the characters besides the protagonist, even if none of the actors were particularly bad. They were just boring.
With a compact runtime of around 70 minutes, it's never completely boring. Remarkable is the fact, that the movie looks fairly expensive, with a budget of just above 500k dollars.
With its polished look, I almost mistook it for a studio production.

Image
8. 51 Degrees North (Grigorij Richter, 2015) - 6.5/10
Successful independent filmmaker Damon Miller becomes caught up in top-secret cosmic researches while searching a topic for his newest project. While fearing for his life and fighting for the survival of his disrupted relationship, Damon learns a horrible truth, that changes the lives of him and every soul on planet earth.

It's best to go into this well-crafted independent flick blind. It starts out as a rather straightforward searching-for-fame story but develops into something far different midway through. The actors are actually quite good, the story fresh within the found footage genre and rarely seen in general. I recommend everyone to check this one out.

Image
9. Asylum, the Lost Footage (Dan T. Hall, 2013) - 3/10
A few experts review footage shot by a group of missing ghost hunters.

There's is not much redeemable about "Asylum, the Lost Footage". We follow a group of uninteresting people, who we have no connection whatsoever to, running through the dark halls of an abandoned asylum. The location could make for a scary movie if the director had made anything of it. The acting is on Youtuber-level and the editing style with the grainy footage and the interviews intercut got on my nerves pretty quickly. Most of the movie's runtime, nothing is happening at all. A tedious watch.

18. Despair (1978) - 8/10

This is an interesting film set in late 30's Germany (as the Nazis are consolidating power and things are only just starting to get ugly). We have a protagonist who seems to be experiencing an existential mid-life crisis, piled atop a growing sense that he is an outsider(he is, indeed, an immigrant and half Jewish) given contemporary political trends. Then, he runs into his veritable twin (or is it?), and a potential escape from his more and more intolerable situation. A fascinating perspective on the period, told from the standpoint of an admittedly less than heroic victim. Dirk Bogarde is perfect in this role, the other players portraying mere caricatures or marionettes, heightening the sense we have of his isolation.
