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)

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.

It says 2 checks, but the other one is hidden. Probably some dark user who checks titles he can't find. There are a lot of those on the Unesco list.

Sure. But you have no idea how often people actually admitted to check the movies they couldn't find, especially with Unesco for some reason.

It was a good film for me to watch while I took care of various red tape on my laptop. i.e. filling out forms, paying bills, etc. It was also interesting to see many neighborhoods I am familiar with from another point of view.

I watched this one recently as well. It wasn't this exact site but I basically just had something like this pulled up to follow along as it played:
http://www.murashev.com/opera/Rigoletto ... an_English
It's a full Italian to English translation of the actual opera which the movie follows faithfully.

I wouldn't wish this on anyone else. Except maybe Insomnius. Experimental short with blue-tinted imagery and two flat-toned female narrators. I can't guess the intent here. One keeps saying "I am cold." OK.

A few more fresh adds to ICM. All KG.

https://www.icheckmovies.com/movies/1986+summer/
https://www.icheckmovies.com/movies/goo ... ning-1976/ -- 12-minute B&W montage of the filmmaker saying "Good night" and "Good morning" as she begins/ends a series of days, so I KNOW you'll want to see this one
https://www.icheckmovies.com/movies/lappel+de+la+foret/ -- the filmmaker can't decide where to hang a painting...suspense!
https://www.icheckmovies.com/movies/art ... +paradise/ -- this one is fun enough. Plenty of rapidly edited closeups of naked torsos, so who would complain?

Currently on U.S. Amazon Prime. A documentary directed by Leslie Zemeckis about a female circus performer who trains tigers and the film is as great and sad as her other film about two female circus performers, Bound By Flesh (2012) (which was about the two conjoined twins that were in the film, Freaks (1932)).
