Did you like it?
Episodes rated: 8-7-6-4-5-4

(eller terningkast 5-4-4-3-3-3)

The set up is good (with Norsk Hydro etc), but the "assault" in itself extremely uneventful. I saw Hollywood's Heroes of Telemark too, and even though they have altered history some to create more action, they also created great tension when sinking the boat.

There were no tension in KOT. It just sinks, 2 kms away from everything. And that is supposed to be the final resolution.
Don't really see the point of Frank Kjosås' character either.

All in all it's a 5/10. Same as the 1948 norwegian movie.

My month of mini-series and longer works gets off to a wonderful start with I, Claudius. I thoroughly enjoyed this, and ended up binge watching the final five episodes in a day - the performances and writing were terrific. I now want to read Robert Graves' two novels that it is based on.

I followed this up with the documentary, The Epic That Never Was, on the aborted I, Claudius film produced by Korda and directed by von Sternberg. From the footage shown in this, I don't believe any of the performances would have been as good as those in the 1976 BBC version are.

New Watch:
15. I, Claudius (1976) twelve parts {total time: 668 min. = 9 points}

Although I've been watching it, I haven't posted in this thread yet because I'm not really keen on all the accounting. I suppose I could work out some sort of spreadsheet but the ICM export doesn't include run time.

That's a lot to take in all at once but I totally get it. I saw this at a cinema so I didn't have that option but would have gladly taken it if it existed. It's a terrific addiction.

(East) German quadruple:

16. Lebensläufe / Biographies (1981, 257 mins) 8/10 | 2 points

8th film in The Children of Golzow longitudinal documentary series, and the first really long one. Wasn't sure how to count the Golzow films for this challenge, but decided it would make the most sense to only count each individual 3+ hour film.


17. Drehbuch - Die Zeiten (1993, 270 mins) 9/10 | 2 points

"Film preserves the image of a society sinking into history like amber. However, I will preserve myself from too much GDR nostalgia. This other Germany was only capable of life for a certain time. It didn't disappear in a war, but brought itself down. They, we, also I, merely arranged ourselves in the limits possible." - Winfried Junge

The tenth film in the longitudinal documentary series following 18 children from the first day of school in Golzow, close to the Polish border in East Germany in 1961 all the way up to 2007, is a remarkable document of the life of GDR citizens in the years immediately after the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989. Many have lost their jobs due to a changing economy, others are doing better. Some are curious and optimistic about the rapidly changing times, others angry by the injustice and the fact that many people in the East German government that lied to them go free and are less affected by the changing times. While most people, much like the Golzowers who are mainly working class, are the worst affected.

But Drehbuch: Die Zeiten is also the story of an apologetic and defensive filmmaker, Winfried Junge, who, in documenting these children (now well into their 30s, early 40s) for nine films under East German rule, helped spread East German lies and propaganda. Much like in Michael Apted's Up-series, the longitudinal documentary format is also questioned, as the "Golzow children" have in various ways been affected by the popularity of the series, often in bad ways. Some Golzowers have chosen not to continue to have their lives chronicled, others are still okay with director Winfried Junges occasionally difficult questions and his choice of not always portraying the lives of these people in the best light.

For those interested in watching the Golzow films but don't have 43 hours to spare on the 19 films, I'd recommed the eight film Lebenslaufe, released in 1981 in the GDR and this tenth film, made in the first years after the GDR. That's still roughly nine hours of film to go through, but particularly this one is documentary gold: work that challenges the value of documentaries and its ethics - as well as asking questions about how well the reunion of Germany was handled.

18. Das Leben des Jürgen von Golzow (1994, 192 mins) 8/10 | 1 point

11th Golzow film, and the first focusing on only one Golzower.


19. Piloten im Pyjama (1968, 331 mins) 8/10 | 3 points

East German directors Walter Heynowski and Gerhard Scheumann goes to North Vietnam to interview ten American prisoners of war, pilots who had dropped bombs on North Vietnam and had been shot down and captured in the same country. Through four episodes, the "pilots in pyjamas" are interviewed by the East German directors about the gruesome reality of the bombing they have done, while sweating excessively, often struggling to look at the camera.

The filmmakers are using their power, as well as the awkward situation of the Americans that are interviewed, both to get the Americans to confess to what the directors call anti-communism, genocide and terrorism - but also to front communist propaganda. While the directors are open about the propaganda - through for example directly accusing the pilots to be no better than the Nazis in that they were "simply following orders" - they are also clearly trying to avoid making this look like what it really is, to paraphrase Amos Vogel, an interrogation without safeguards for the American pilots. Perhaps in the filmmakers' eyes they see it this way: it is their turn to be the victims here, not through dirty weapons such as cluster bombs, but through the more seemingly innocuous weapon that is the camera. That would perhaps be one reason to why through 311 minutes, only two minutes are spent giving a voice to the North Vietnamese themselves, a soldier who is portrayed as single-handendly shooting down seven American "Thunderchiefs", almost bringing the American war policy to an end by himself - like any good comrade would do.

While it is dirty documentary filmmaking in some sense, it is undoubtedly well argued for the East-German viewpoint and a great piece of anti-war filmmaking. Any film on the Vietnam War is by default political, and with the comforting distance away from the conflict today, it is interesting - and refreshing - to see a different approach to it then what is normally shown.

These sound interesting, Lilicor.

Folks -- I'm feeling I should retire from keeping track of the points in favor of someone with a better short-term memory. Any takers?

11. (1 pt) To Play the King (1993) dir. Paul Seed - 8.4 - 3h35m - great second installment to the trilogy, slightly less good than the first. They were wise to drop the catchphrase from the first series, but parts of it still felt like a retrod. Still, I'm looking forward to part three (even though I accidentally read some spoilers)

Once again, I forgot about this thread.

I've watched more 3+ hour (plus a series) in the last six months than I did in the 2 years before that...


10. Neon Genesis Evangelion (1995-1996, 624') - Repetitive and frustrating giant robot drama - when it does try for Big Ideas, a lot of it comes off as half-baked and underdeveloped. With that said, there are enough flashes of brilliance to make it worthwhile. I particularly enjoyed the wacky and audacious final two episodes.

The follow-up film (which I'm not counting here) is something else - one of the most despairing and horrifying films I've seen in a long time.

Apparently a lot of people in the anime community loathe the character of Shinji ("pussy bitch" and "whiny emo fag" being some of the descriptions I read), but I rather liked him. He's lonely and paralyzed by indecision and fear and desperate for affirmation and affection from those around him, but... Well, he's relateable. The last episode is basically a session of psychoanalysis trying to work out his issues.

11. Jeanne Dielman (1975, 225') - A great example of how extended duration can kind of force you on to a different wavelength. I can't say I loved it, but I appreciated the experience of watching it. One of the key elements for me was Jeanne's restlessness. She's constantly moving, even when she's standing still - and it creates a tension and suspense that you wouldn't expect from a film that mostly follows a woman performing a bunch of domestic tasks. I don't necessarily buy the ending action, but that final shot is wonderful.

12. Tie Xi Qu: West of the Tracks (2002, 554') - Decay and ruin. Tie Xi Qu, the industrial district of Shenyang in NE China, has gone from being a thriving factory metropolis to being on its last legs in less than two decades. Most of the factories have closed, and the remaining ones have a drastically reduced workforce. In the first section, we follow some of the remaining workers - many of who haven't been paid in months - as they go about their jobs and as they hang out in their break rooms where they play games and talk about whether or not they'll get their salaries and what they'll do when their factory inevitably closes. This is documentary in the observational style, closer to Wiseman than anything else - so other than some paragraphs of text at the beginning of each section, you don't really get much more context other than what we see and overhear from the workers.

The next two sections venture farther from the factories to follow some of the youth who live in the city, and to show us more of how the area's gradual decline has affected the community as a whole. We get some memorable shots of the abandoned factories, as well as some interstitial scenes where we ride along on a train that travels on a loop around the industrial area. The latter scenes help create a sense of "rhythm" and create a sort of hypnosis. Takeaway image: The train passing through a railyard, and here and there a man just wandering along one of the tracks, seemingly aimlessly. A speck against this decrepit, almost apocalyptic landscape.

There's a lot here that's evocative and moving - but it is really, really long.

13. The Human Condition I (1959, 208') - The first film is good, but it feels a bit simplistic and schematic at times, with Kaji's naivete/idealism feeling more like a device than a natural human part of his character. As a result, a lot of the plot developments feel like contrivances to get the filmmakers' points across. With that said... I still enjoyed it a great deal, and you do get a good sense of the moral complexities Kaji faces.

But things only get better from there, with each subsequent film being better than the last. It's fascinating to watch Kobayashi's skills as a filmmaker develop over the course of the series. The last 30 minutes or so of the last film are sublime - filmmaking of the highest order.

There's a lot going on here, thematically. The anti-authoritarian in me particularly responds to the way Kobayashi examines systems of power. And... I have a lot more notes from my viewing of the trilogy, but honestly I'm feeling kind of lazy and don't want to write more about it. Suffice it to say, while the series as a whole didn't quite live up to my lofty expectations, it's still pretty darn great. Monumental filmmaking.

14. The Human Condition II (1959, 181')
15. The Human Condition III (1961, 190')

...I watched four more qualifying films, but I'll post about them and update my points total... Later.

16. Ludwig (1973, 235') - I find late Visconti hit-or-miss, but this was a mostly engaging tale of the "mad king" who may or may not have been all that mad after all. He was depressed, and probably had some issues due to royal inbreeding—but the “insanity” charges may have been a fabrication of his political enemies.

(Of course, I don't know enough about the real-life history of Ludwig to be able to evaluate the accuracy of this depiction.)

I found Ludwig sympathetic, but I thought the story of his younger brother, Otto—who goes off to war in the hopes of finding something transcendent, and then proceeds to lose his mind—was more affecting. He's only a secondary character in the film, but his shadow hangs over everything else.

17. Eros + Massacre (1969, 220') - I got almost nothing out of this, narratively speaking. I don't know if I just wasn't paying close enough attention or if it's something that requires an extensive knowledge of the history of pre-war Japan, but much of the story—particularly in the "Past" sections—completely eluded me. With that said, I was still able to admire Yoshida's aggressively alienating aesthetic. It's impressive how off-kilter framing and extreme use of negative space can make something feel unsettling and even confrontational. Oftentimes characters heads will appear at the very bottom of the image, or partially cut off in the corner, with the rest of the frame "filled" with empty sky or blank walls. Other times, the action will take place in the background, far removed from the camera's position. The high contrast photography and the dissonant score contribute to the sense of watching something almost alien.

18. Siberiade (1979, 275') - Sixty years of life in a primitive Siberian village that sits on the edge of a massive, oil- and natural gas-rich swamp. We follow several generations of two of the village's families as they fight, fall in love, join the Revolution, go to war, and face "glorious," unwanted Soviet modernization. While I didn't find it all that moving, it's engaging throughout and the 275 minutes went by quickly.

On a side note, I enjoyed the completely anachronistic electronic score.

19. The Best of Youth (2003, 366') - Two brothers take different paths in life. This has the feeling of a good novel, and shows how an extended length can really draw you into the characters' world. My main criticism of the film is that I never got a clear sense of Matteo's motivations - sometimes it seems like the filmmakers' just had him do things to provide a contrast with his brother's life. Still, it's a very good film with a lovely ending.

You have to be very very patient with this one, because there's not a lot happening. I don't mind slow movies, but in this case I felt a lot of scenes added nothing to the story, the emotions or whatever. At first it took me around an hour to understand who was who and which relationships there were in the movie. After the key moments, the story became clear, but in the next 1.5 to 2 hours a lot of shots weren't about the results of the incidents. A lot of scenes showed side characters basically doing nothing. If you make long slow scenes, do it for a reason. If those shots were meant to show the burdens of the guilty one, it could raise my involvement in the character. If the shots were meant to show the isolation and desperation of the guy in jail, I could be emotionally involved with him. Instead we got shots of nothing. Yes, it looks nice most of the time, but it doesn't touch me.
The most interesting part was

when the guilty one showed his guilty feelings years later and tried to do something good
, but that was just a little snippet. I wanted to see more about that, but that didn't happen.

There is some powerful stuff in this movie. You just have to wait for that stuff for too long.

Btw, can someone explain the last 15 minutes to me?

Some dead bodies on the ground with a crying baby in between, apparently from a car crash (or plane?). Then a shot of a man floating 1 meter high above the ground. Wtf was that?
Or should I just watch another Michael Bay movie? :P

Shouldn't have been that long (almost 4 hours). After 2.5 hours it felt like a climax was near, but it went into another sequence and another, and another, ...... Even after the climax it lasted for another 25 minutes.

I'll join in, i love watching long movies, and i plan to watch a few for the documentary challenge

1. Comment Yukong déplaça les montagnes - How Yukong Moved the Mountains (1976, Joris Ivens, Marceline Loridan Ivens) 9/10

IMDB says it's 763 minutes long, but the version i watched was a little over 11 hours, so...

15. Twin Peaks: The Return (David Lynch, 2017) - 9/10 - 14p

Does anyone object? I consider it a miniseries and a sequel to the original series rather than a third season, because it is so different and branded differently. Many seem to agree, as it made Sight & Sound's end-of-year best films list, and it has its own iCM entry.
