1. Fuocoammare (2016)
The Mediterranean migrant crisis of the past decade is a serious and tragic world historical event. I know the European Commission recently declared that the crisis is over, and I'm sure that wouldn't have happened if the numbers hadn't declined. But this crisis is bupkis compared to what's coming down the pike once climate change hits harder.

The migrant crisis deserves a great documentary. Unfortunately, this movie isn't it. The scenes that focus on the crisis are heartrending and powerful. Unfortunately, that's only half the movie. The filmmakers made the curious decision to combine two movie in one. One half is about the migrant crisis. The other half is about the life of a young boy and his family on the Italian island of Lampedusa. Occasionally, these two halves intersect. I tend to think that filmmakers (and all artists) are very thoughtful about the creative choices they made. I'm sure that is true of this movie's makers. But I can't really conceive of what was motivating their choices. What, for example, should I make of a two-and-a-half minute scene of a woman making her bed? I suppose the director is trying to build a broader image of a community at the center of the crisis. If that's the intention, it really doesn't work.

FTV:8:The Sweet Body of Deborah (1968) 8

Image

Falling the honeymoon bliss of Deborah and Marcel off a knife edge into a pit of murder and betrayal, director Romolo Guerrieri & cinematographer Marcello Masciocchi wed the couple to the first psychological-driven wave of Gialli with a pristine, corrupt bourgeoisie atmosphere of the couple being wrapped in glistening white surroundings, which Guerrieri merrily spoils with dollops of candle wax blood. One of only two Gialli he made, Guerrieri displays a sharp eye in moving towards the ultra-stylisation which would grip the genre, offering a artful eyeful of topless Deborah, and a groovy nightclub dance with Batman on the wall.

Playing on the notes of paranoia with Nora Orlandi’s dreamy score bringing up Marcel’s suppressed memories, Guerrieri brilliantly uses obscured angles to heighten ambiguity in the Giallo set-pieces over who is getting stabbed in the back. Setting the stage for what Sergio Martino (who worked as a general manager here) would do in the Giallo, Sergio’s brother Luciano joins Ernesto Gastaldi for a female-led, doubtful couple Giallo terror screenplay, as the writers tighten the screws on fears that Deborah and Marcel might both be losing their minds.

Dipping into the death of Marcel’s past partner with fractured flashbacks, the writers raise doubts between the couple by each of them hearing music and phones ringing that appear to be coming from a unseen place. Working on both Gialli made by Guerrieri, Jean Sorel gives a terrific turn as Marcel, whose sorrow Sorel carries with a heaviness which remains even as the Giallo twist ending wraps around him, whilst George Hilton tugs at flamboyant ambiguity as Robert Simack (get the ref?) Initially holding hands with Marcel in a cheerful state, alluring Carroll Baker gives a excellent performance as Deborah, thanks to Baker taking the loved-up state of Deborah and peeling it away to raw, calculating mistrusts which covers the sweet body of Deborah.

I'm embarrassed that I forgot about seeing it the first time. As soon as the film started I knew I had seen it before, but it was a pleasure to revisit. I think I may have even appreciated it more this time around. Despite the 3 hour length I never felt at all impatient or bored. A very involving and moving film. Hope it is equally rewarding for you, peeps!

03. La leggenda del pianista sull'oceano, by Giuseppe Tornatore (1998) 8/10

This mostly a musical movie, and an allegory on artists and how some of them can't really cope with the world beyond the scope of their art. I found it very well done, and enjoyed the music.

Welcome to the race: AB537, blocho, RogertheMovieManiac88, and weirdboy!

Psychotronicbeatnik continues to lead the charge with Traveller still gamely stalking the pace, which appears to be quickening slightly... meanwhile, a couple of lengths back blueboybob and jeroeno are locked in their own duel behind the leading pair. The rest of the field is in single digits, but the race is still young, with plenty of time to catch the leaders...

3. Brother Sun Sister Moon (1972)

4. Death Laid an Egg (1968)

This giallo has innovative ideas regarding genetically modified boneless chickens and automated poultry farms, yet these concepts always remain in the background. As for the central story, there is something of interest in the male protagonist killing prostitutes in his spare time and him and his wife each conspiring with their youthful secretary to undermine one another, but this never quite as interesting as the chicken stuff and voyeuristic coop shots.

With far less gore effects than usual for Lucio Fulci, this giallo instead relies on atmosphere to deliver with varied results. The moody music is excellent, Jennifer O'Neill is typically effective in the lead role and the shots of O'Neill walking around darkened corridors in limited lighting are great at first - yet the music is used inconsistently as the film progresses and O'Neill's wandering about soon beomes repetitive. Interesting key twist though.

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!
