An official check?! I wonder how many official films out there that nobody has checked.

Not many. Even the most obscure movies have often at least one check by a hidden user, so the check is probably not legit. I just checked the Unesco list and every movie has at least 1 check (97 have exactly 1 check).

I just went through Tim's lists. I found 23. 3 of them are on PtP. 2 are dead and the 3rd doesn't have subtitles (although I found subs for a different file of the same film). All 23 are on only one list.

I actually got one of these a couple years ago - Rigoletto (1946)

It was just available. From my library, and I found a similar version on YouTube. I spent almost as long verifying it was the correct movie as I did watching the movie. Still only 4 checks on it. :shrug:

My second official check in this thread this week. :)

I'm not too sure if this is a documentary or a drama. It's filmed similar to how Michael Moore does his films, with the filmmaker forcing his way into various situations and puts his subject "on the spot" to get his agenda across, often with an accusatory/aggressive tone. This one investigates a murder with political motivations.

I tried twice, but got it with a watermark both times.

And I'm not sure you need subs - it's a filmed stage play of a well-known Italian opera, so it's kinda meant to be viewed without subs, methinks.

So you don't need to be Italian? I dunno about that. Did you get anything out of it?

Yeah, I have been to the opera trying to figure out whaht was happening without reading the translation. And even in a famous opera like La Traviata I was mostly wrong. So unless you have the english script in front of you (they are often released in booklets with CD-editions of the Operas) you're missing out on a lot of content.

I followed the story and appreciated the music - some of what I recognized from various cartoons/games I've seen is from Rigoletto. Visually, it's a filmed stage production, so not much cinematic to it. Honestly, just really felt like I was in the audience at an opera.

If you go to an actual opera you do get subtitles. Every seat has a small display with translated lyrics

they didn't always though, and some of us are old enough to remember seeing operas without subs - I'd still count it myself without knowing every bit of dialogue, in most cases. It's not as if opera plots are overly complex or the dialogue is so beautiful when read that it adds significantly to the experience. Not in the case of Verdi anyway. And I don't know about you but I've seen more than a couple of musicals where the songs weren't subbed - didn't really create problems in understanding, and I certainly have no problems in checking them. But to each their own, maybe most people are more obsessive about this issue than I am.

Rigoletto 77, 81, 82, 08 seem to be subbed. I'll watch one of these first then.
(Rigoletto 93 is not related)

Not just first check but a masterpiece IMO and probably my favorite viewing of the month so far.

Semi-interesting, semi-sexy Russian short that I saw on the ShortsTV channel (temporary freeview). Every time a woman orgasms, she magically transports to another location. A metaphor for avoiding emotional intimacy.

Below is another short I saw via a temporary ShortsTV freeview. Period piece about early-70s John Lennon knocking on the door of a slacker and asking to use the toilet. The toilet is broken, so the guy is left with Lennon's doody. What to do with this valuable artifact? Most shorts I've seen via ShortsTV are entirely disposable...this and "Nympho" were better than the norm.

https://www.icheckmovies.com/movies/john+lennons+turd/

Seen on cable TV, presented as a short film rather than a British TV episode. Speculative account of the time Salvador Dali asked Alice Cooper to "collaborate." Not so good.

https://www.icheckmovies.com/movies/urb ... he+cooper/

There are currently 130 shorts where I'm the only checker. Many of them are shorts that I can't remember anymore. "The One Man Beatles," "If It Ain't Stiff, It Ain't Worth a Fuck" and "XTC at the Manor" are great if your music tastes lean that way (Emitt Rhodes, Stiff Records, XTC). If you like dissonant, experimental shorts, try Aldo Tambellini's "Blackout," "Black Trip," "Black Trip 2" and "Black Plus X."

Familiar with the prankish, experimental collective Negativland? This is a doc about late member Don Joyce and his long-time Berkeley radio show "Over the Edge."

https://www.icheckmovies.com/movies/watunna/

Animated short depicting Venezuelan creation myths, narrated by...guess who?...Stan Brakhage. Reminds me of the John/Faith Hubley shorts I've seen. It's on Vimeo.
