It's been some time since I put in an update

#667 - The Chronicle of Anna Magdalena Bach (Huillet/Straub)
#668 - Salesman (Albert/David Maysles)
#669 - The Insider (Mann)
#670 - Antonio das Mortes (Rocha)
#671 - The Enigma of Kasper Hauser (Herzog)
#672 - Fellini Satyricon (Fellini)
#673 - The Last Detail (Ashby)
#674 - The Man Who Would Be King (Huston)
#675 - Last Tango in Paris (Bertolucci)

Highlights include Caine and Connery's bullet speed banter, Fellini's mise en scene, Maysles ability in capturing people saying and doing the things they say and do, the sheer beauty of the music in Anna Magdalena, Nicholson losing his shit, as he invariably does, Antonio realising who the real enemy is and every single minute of Kasper Hauser.

I forgot to mention Brando, butter and pig vomit.

Young Mr. Lincoln (1939) - 5/10

It doesn't really show here, but most of this weekend was 3+ hour films. That was a bad idea, I feel way too overwhelmed now. Good thing I only see 1-2 a day 5 days a week.

54 films left for Sight and Sound and 66 left for TSPDT (although who knows what the number will be when the update drops). Turns out there's actually 3 subless films in the Sight and Sound list. 2 are miniseries which are like 2/3rd's done. Who knows what's gonna happen with El desencanto [The Disenchantment]. I just added 80 more gigs to the pot. Someone did claim the pot a month ago, but they claimed it the day they registered. Hopefully that user knows what they're doing.

A 7/10 means great to me. 9/10 is very hard to get. This actually might beat Tokyo Story.

Dont Look Back (1967) 6/10
Teorema [Theorem] (1968) 6/10

Europa '51 [The Greatest Love] (1952) 5/10
Satyricon [Fellini - Satyricon] (1969) 3/10 Thank god that I'm finally done with Fellini... at least his essentials.
Providence (1977) 6/10

Not in this list, but I love how out of all the Bresson films, I favourite Une femme douce.

57 left for TSPDT and 40 for Sight and Sound.

Lancelot du Lac [Lancelot of the Lake] (1974) 7/10
Мой друг Иван Лапшин [My Friend Ivan Lapshin] (1986) 8/10
&#33738;&#35910; [Ju Dou] (1990) 8/10
Le chagrin et la pitié [The Sorrow and the Pity] (1969) 6/10
An Angel at My Table (1990) 5/10
Witness (1985) 7/10 A standard thriller, but still a nice surprise. Great performance by Harrison Ford, and what a soundtrack
Der Tiger von Eschnapur [The Tiger of Eschnapur] (1959) 4/10
Topsy-Turvy (1999) 5/10

There were 3 more dislikes last week, but they were on the Sight and Sound list. يد إلهية [Divine Intervention] is definitely one of the worst I've seen in a while. I can definitely see its political importance, but this felt like watching Love Exposure.

54 left for TSPDT (after the update) and 25 left for Sight and Sound (22 for subbed ones, and 7 are short films)

Art, I agree on most (of those I have seen), but I am surprised by your rating of Teorema.

I was going to send you a message wishing you luck when I saw you had just checked Satyicon. Changed my mind though. Thought it might be cruel to add you you misery. :)

1. Moi, un noir (#746) - 7/10. Pretty touching docufiction about the lack of (individual and collective) identity of some young inhabitants in the slums of Ivory Coast. They fill their existential void by continuously impersonating old movie stars and in doing so 'seem' pretty laidback about it.
2. Ashes of Time (#639) - 8/10. I was drooling at the imagery for ninety minutes straight that I totally forgot the story was in fact an utter mess.

You're sick just for thinking that.

I'm actually so relieved that I'm done with Fellini, at least for now. Teorema was quite good. Didn't see anything wrong with it really but I didn't see it as a better film than 6/10. Maybe a rewatch in a few years is in order. Edipo re [Oedipus Rex] was an awesome Pasolini film though.

15 subbed films left, with 8 of them being more than 45 minutes (some of the other 7 are like 4-5 minutes) so I'll definitely be done at Monday. I'll save what might be the best for last, Flaming Creatures.

I'll wait till the summer for the TSPDT list.

Having had Platinum watching the new ones I have not seen, of course I do not understand Portuguese well enough for a Mini Series 2 parts of which have no subs so will not watch that yet#
#
1 To vlemma tou Odyssea, 1995
This features a symbolic scene where a giant statue of Lenin arrives at a shipyard and then is seen floating down a river symbolsiing the collapse of communism, it is also a very good film with some great scenes and looks good too.

2 Malu tiansh Street Angel 1937

Really nice old Chinese film and featuring a fine set of characters

3 Moi, un noir 1958

Stylised semi documentary about French speaking immigrants from Niger to Nigeria and their work if they can get it as day labourers and their lifestyles, not too bad a film .

4 Qing mei zhu ma, Taipei Story 1985

Not in good condition, the lives of ordinary people there and not too bad a film

5 Cabra Marcado Para Morrer, Twenty Years Later 1985

Countryside victims of the Brazil coup of the early 1960s, especially victims of the Left and possibly considered pro communist and their families and what life is like for them all 20 years later, this is very long and not really of that much interest for me, seems it must be over-rated and should not really be on this list

6 Pickpocket /Xiao Wu 1997

90s Chinese film a petty criminal finding life tough , quite sad really

I need 7 for the Golden Horse Bronze so may work a Chinese challenge when there is one or something like it

Francesco giullare di Dio [The Flowers of St. Francis] (1950) 5/10
New York, New York (1977) 5/10
Orlando (1992) 7/10
A Idade da Terra [The Age of the Earth] (1980) 5/10
O Dragão da Maldade contra o Santo Guerreiro [Antonio das Mortes] (1969) 6/10
Yol [The Road] (1982) 7/10
Unsere Afrikareise (1966) 7/10
Flaming Creatures (1963) 6/10

I kind of wish that The Swimmer was on this list now. A really great surprise. Some scenes seemed quite out of place (a director got fired in the middle of making it which explains it) but it felt like a more accessible yet more terrifying version of Cosmopolis.

44 left for TSPDT, done with Sight and Sound until those 3 films are subbed. For now, I'm going back to seeing what I wanna see.

7 A Better Tomorrow/ Ying hung boon sik 1985

Terrific Hong Kong Action film the inspiration for many more of a similar vain in Hong Kong and worldwide

Why is this called Gangland Boss on ICM it is almost never known as that now.

Apart from the Portuguese serial ( I take it Rich and others speak or understand it) I just have left Arabian Nights and the Chile film, but I will watch all 3 Chile films although just No 2 for this list.

8. The Battle of Chile part 2 1975

This has a whole farrago of political nonsense but in the end what happened happened but this is what really happened apparently in the article below by an ex CIA man and I agree with this ex CIA man that " if the Chilean military had not intervened in September 1973, our covert-action programs would have sustained the opposition until the next election and the Allende government would have been defeated at the ballot box—a far more preferable outcome than the Pinochet regime". I also saw the other two films.

But I do feel thankful to Pinochet for supporting Britain in the Falklands War in 1982.

9 Arabian Nights 1974,

the main star being perhaps the male member, a Passolini romp but also weird and innocent in a strange way

So that is me done apart from Doomed Love, doomed no subs no watch so I may go on now to the 2nd 1000..

A CFR link about events in Chile is surely the most reliable source, LMAO. But I do wonder if they really thought they could defeat Allende in an election why did they have to bomb the presidential palace, take him out and murder people just to make sure they got what they want, huh? I watched all 3 films recently and they are very well done, even if you disagree with the Allende politics you cannot deny what was done by the US there is an atrocity that shall not be forgotten.

If rewatches are allowed (and I am going to log them in a separate number anyway as a Top 50 Rewatch 1 and so on
I am going to rewatch the Top 50 slowly so started with a film recorded on TV, using the print found in Argentina a remarkably good clean copy, I think I may not have seen the full restored version before and it is terrific and it is:


Top 50 Rewatch 1 : Metropolis 1927

(next up 2001 : A Space Odyssey)

I don't think anyone has used all of the Argentine print, since it was only a 16mm print (if I recall correctly). However, the Argentine print contained a few "new" scenes that have since been added to the existing restored version. The Argentine scenes are, at least in the version I saw, substantially more scratched and have a narrower image so they are easy to identify.
Personal film goals for 2019.

3 Modern Times 1936

Rewatched this after remembering the opening scene where workers are shown as sheep emerging from a Subway station, this is of course a work of sheer genius

Amor de perdição [Doomed Love] (1979) 5/10
Окраина [Outskirts] (1933) 6/10
The Tragedy of Othello: The Moor of Venice [Othello] (1952) 6/10
&#23567;&#27494; [The Pickpocket] (1997) 7/10
The Ice Storm (1997) 5/10
&#19996;&#37034;&#35199;&#27602;&#65306; &#32456;&#26497;&#29256; [Ashes of Time Redux] (2008) 5/10
&#32418;&#39640;&#31921; [Red Sorghum] (1987) 6/10

L'enfant sauvage [The Wild Child] (1970) 5/10
Lacombe Lucien (1974) 6/10
Ensayo de un crimen [The Criminal Life of Archibaldo de la Cruz] (1955) 5/10
The Thief of Bagdad (1940) 4/10
Hoří, má panenko [The Firemen's Ball] (1967) 8/10 Hilarious

This pretty much looks like I'm pulling off a mighty :lol: although 6/10 means good to me (5/10 is my meh rating).

27 films left. These are the films that I'm looking forward to in some random order:
La commune (Paris, 1871)
Les dames du bois de Boulogne [Ladies of the Park]
A Diary for Timothy
Holiday
Lásky jedné plavovlásky [The Loves of a Blonde]
Night of the Demon
Two for the Road

If you wanna see what I have left: https://www.icheckmovies.com/lists/they ... hurYanthar
My father didn’t have the skill of a professional cameraman. The result? Avant-garde cinema.

we've the same rating for Firemen's Ball. great movie. Loves of a Blonde is lesser but still very solid. some good cringe comedy moments. Holiday is great, I love the Cary Grant screwballs. of those remaining you haven't seen that I've seen:

The Man Who Fell to Earth borders between great Roeg and terrible Roeg, almost switching from scene to scene.
The Thing from Another World is one of those 50s scifi films I can't get into :/ it's just not my thing.
Les dames du bois de Boulogne is Bresson sooo duh.
and Broadway Danny Rose is one of the lesser discussed Woody Allen films but easily Top5 for me. okay Top3.

17 left

Two for the Road (1967) 5/10
The Devil Is a Woman (1935) 5/10
The Thing From Another World (1951) 6/10]
Night of the Demon (1957) 8/10 I actually thought that the faraway shots of the demon were amazing. The closeup ones though... yea I feel bad that they shot behind Tourneur's back. It's still amazing.
A Diary for Timothy (1945) 6/10 EASILY Jenning's weakest film. The Silent Village or Fires Were Started should be the ones in this list.
The Unbearable Lightness of Being (1988) 3/10 This Kaufman guy is a piece of shit. Invasion of the Body Snatchers is probably one of those "HOW COULD YOU HAVE NOT SEEN THIS YET" kind of films but seeing 2 of his films makes me not wanna watch it
Mitt liv som hund [My Life as a Dog] (1985) 5/10
Broadway Danny Rose (1984) 6/10
À nous la liberté [Freedom for Us] (1931) 6/10
The Man Who Fell to Earth (1976) 6/10

The Age of Innocence (1993) 6/10
Hotel Terminus: The Life and Times of Klaus Barbie (1988) 6/10
Excalibur (1981) 5/10 A gorgeous film though
War and Peace (1967) 6/10 I probably should have read the book first. Like Excalibur, this was gorgeous
La Commune (Paris, 1871) (2000) 6/10 At first I thought this was gonna be a favourite, but then I realized that there was still over 3 hours to go.
Утомлённые солнцем [Burnt by the Sun] (1994) 5/10
Les maîtres fous [The Mad Masters] (1955) 5/10
Les deux Anglaises et le continent [Two English Girls] (1971) 6/10
Malcolm X (1992) 6/10
La femme d'à côté [The Woman Next Door] (1981) 6/10

Why am I have such a huge streak of meh/decent/just good films? :( I can't wait to watch great films again. It's been so long (at least there's 3 movies that look great, I bolded them).

7 left:

The Loves of a Blonde
Ladies of the Park

Yellow Submarine
We All Loved Each Other So Much
Pakeezah
Dear Diary
Holiday

Lásky jedné plavovlásky [Loves of a Blonde] (1965) 6/10 Some moments were really great in terms of being cringeworthy, but yea this was NOTHING compared to The Fireman's Ball
Caro diario [Dear Diary] (1993) 5/10
Yellow Submarine (1968) 5/10
Les dames du bois de Boulogne [Ladies of the Park] (1945) 6/10 Talk about babe overload
C'eravamo tanto amati [We All Loved Each Other So Much] (1974) 5/10
&#2346;&#2366;&#2325;&#2364;&#2368;&#2332;&#2364;&#2366; [Pakeezah] (1972) 7/10 YEA YEA I know... I still loved it
Holiday (1938) 6/10 This type of comedy is not really for me, I thought I was gonna hate it at first but then it started picking up.

Well, now I'm done the list. Although I'm scared that this made me turn into mighty with my ratings. I think the Sight and Sound list is much better.
