Which soundtrack did your copy have? I guess the one by Flat Earth Society? That's a Belgian band that started 20 years ago and did this soundtrack in 2007, so it's not the original soundtrack. Great music though!

I had the same copy as the one highlighted in the top comments. According to the description, it was composed by Edward Rolf Boensnes. Now you got me intrigued by the one you mentioned, though.

An ensemble piece from Mike Leigh. The limited time that Leigh dedicates to two sets of neighbours (one snobbish; the other sexually overactive) is a little disappointing since they are mostly used for comic relief. The drama involving twoe siblings, their partners and their mother resonates well though, thanks largely to Edna Doré's solid performance as the matriarch. There is a great moment in which Leigh lingers on Doré's face in closeup while the others argue around her. Phil Davis and Ruth Sheen are superb here too as the film's most likeable characters.

Just watched/listened a few minutes of that clip. That's completely different. Not original as well of course, because they didn't have a synthesizer in 1919. :lol:
I hate to say this, but I think synthesizer soundtracks on silent movies are just awful.

I don't know if the Flat Earth Society version is available online. I've got it on DVD. I actually bought it, because I'm a fan of Flat Earth Society, not out of interest in the movie. Later on it was a bonus that it was on the Rosenbaum-list when I started working on that. :lol:

1. Aerograd AKA Frontier (1935) - Aleksandr Dovzhenko

I commented already in another thread, but I'll summarize again here: I liked the exterior photography and especially the aerial work. However, this had way too many long speeches delivered in dim, claustrophobic interiors, and the plot sucked.

6. Archangel (1990) - 7-7,5/10
The fourth film of Guy Maddin I have seen, and what a weird adventure it was once again. Enjoyed it as much if not more than the ones I have seen prior (The Heart of the World, The Saddest Music in the World & The Forbidden Room), and now I feel like continuing with My Winnipeg right after.

This, then, is my favorite Guy Maddin film so far. What an astonishing portrait of his hometown, a beautiful mix of mythological documentary and autobiography packed into some fictional meta-plot. A documentary such as this one I had not encountered before – if one can even call it simply such.

1. Aerograd (Dovhzenko, 1935). Weirdboy is correct, this really doen't measure up. The "proclamations" made by the various characters quickly become tedious and the beautiful cinematography can't make up for the simplistic plot. My least favorite of the 4 Dovhzenko movies I've seen so far.

I requested that from the library for last month's challenge when it would count as a triple. But it finally came, so I'm glad it counts for a challenge this month. And good to hear this is good!

13. Red Line 7000 (1965, Howard Hawks) : Hawks double-feature today. After the forgettable yet enjoyable Land of the Pharaohs, Red Line 7000 is a very weird and tacky film that aged very badly. My least favorite of his works, by a mile.

Woody Harrelson and a bunch of activist friends go on a road trip all across the North American continent to promote vegan lifestyles and environmental sustainability in this documentary. The trip has quite a few highlights as Harrelson makes public speeches, visits a specific action training camp for activists and spends time with a woman whose factory is producing paper out of hemp as opposed to wood. Mann's frequent attempts to inject humour into the proceedings are less successful; e.g. using a megaphone to speak to tell cows to rebel is just silly.

Agree with you on Lewis. He's mostly annoying, not funny.

The Nutty Professor (1963) 7/10
Artists and Models (1955) 7/10
The Ladies Man (1961) 5/10

Diff'rent strokes for diff'rent folks; while I can understand the limited appeal of Jerry Lewis's squeaky-voiced on-screen persona, what I have seen of his directing work is great. The open dollhouse visuals of The Ladies' Man are breathtaking, while films such as The Bellboy are full of visual gag humour akin to Tati. I haven't seen any of his late career directing efforts, but I find his earlier work very aesthetically appealing in general. I have absolutely no reservations in including him among my top 100 directors for the recent forum poll. His acting though is a different matter for sure.
