FTV:8: The Deadly Invention (1958).Czech. 9.

Image


Inspired by the sight of woodcut illustrations in the original publication of Jules Verne’s novels, co-writer/(with Frantisek Hrubin and Milan Vácha) directing auteur Karel Zeman continues his seamless blending of live action,in-camera tricks and quirky animation. Backed by composer Zdenek Liska’s early dip into a electronic and classical blended score, Zeman boils up a decades ahead of its time Steam Punk atmosphere with a “mysti-mation” method of animation, which give the drawn backdrops a almost handmade Victorian era touch, by them creating a eye-catching depth of field on the submarine and the volcano. Travelling from Verne’s lesser-known novel Facing the Flag, the writers continue to superbly explore the line between magic and live action that runs across Zeman’s work, via Artigas idea to use a super-explosive device slyly flying close to the threat of nukes in the Cold War, which is perfectly balanced with the Fantasy Steam Punk delight of Artigas’s proto-007 volcanic lair and displaying Professor Roche (played by a fantastic Ernest Navara) array of Victorian inventions which sparkle as attempts are made to stop the deadly invention.

FTV:9:I Dutifully Report (1958). Czech. 3.

Image

One of the few Czech films from this era to be in colour, writer/director Karel Stekly & Jan Roth fittingly give the final film in the series a blustering bright splash, in the crisp uniforms and fading grass on the battlegrounds being chopped down by swish edits. Completing Svejk’s war battle, Stekly charges in with extremely grating brash humour, where any satire is run down by the cast obnoxiously shouting each punchline, and each of Svejk comedic face pulls being as irritating for the audience as it is for the soldiers he reports to.

FTV:10:A Journey to the Beginning of Time (1955) Czech.4


Image

Flickering illustrations of Jules Verne's Journey to the Center of the Earth over the opening,co-writer(with William Cayton and J.A. Novotný)/directing auteur Karel Zeman continues the distinctive blending of live action with animation,in this case well designed,detailed stop-motion animation of dinosaurs. Whilst the animation is smoothly done, the blending of live action/animation never fully clicks,partly due to the camera being angled to place the dinosaurs on the corner of the screen to the cast, and also Zeman giving the live action elements a flatness,highlighting the interest solely being in the stop-motion. Leaving Jules Verne from the opening to go for a Boys Own Adventure, the writers disappointingly give little to make each boy stand out,or to spend time building the relationships, instead going for dry read-outs of facts relating to dinosaurs encountered on this uneventful journey to the beginning of time.

I'll take it slow 'cause we're not Russian this monthShow
1. The Death of Mr. Lazarescu (2005, Romania)
2. The Loves of a Blonde (1965, Czechoslovakia)
3. Island of Death (1976, Greece)
4. Knife in the Water (1962, Poland)
I just did not get this one - the cinematography was nice enough, but nothing else about it drew me in. The end was interesting enough, but the first 80% of the movie did pretty much nothing for me. So while I get that this was Polanski's first, I don't understand the acclaim for it.

FTV:11:Island of Death (1976) Greece. 8

Image

Presenting the film uncut in the UK for the first time, Arrow deliver a great transfer which retains the film grit of the picture and the raw,anything goes soundtrack, all backed by detailed extras.Writing the screenplay over a weekend (after making two lists of the most vile things he could think of!) after seeing The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and seeing a chance for a quick cash-grab, writer/director Nico Mastorakis (a right character on the commentary,the guy talks endless banter) goes all-out for a rough & ready Grindhouse atmosphere, fuelled by zoom-in jolts on the tasty gore and skin.

Although made super low budget, ( Mastorakis has a memorable cameo,due to not wanting to pay the would-be actor $80) Mastorakis displays a real improvement from his gloriously trashy film directing debut Death Has Blue Eyes, (1976-also reviewed) in stylish camera flashes on screen capturing the deranged point of view of Christopher, which close to the white walls on the Greek island being splatted with sexy women and lashings of burning red gore. Giving Celia and Christopher no depth, the screenplay by Mastorakis instead places all bets on brilliantly putting one pile of Grindhouse sleaze on top of another,as C&C take in male/female rape,drug abuse, goat sex (!) visceral killings and peeing on people during their relaxing vacation to the island of death.

Not really. Stats and the formatting of the tables are fully automated. What I'm still doing manually is importing movie details (name, director, genres etc). It's unfortunate that IMDb does not have an API and I am not really pleased by the scrappers that exist for it. I plan on writing my own scrapper though, when I have some more free time.

Alas, if only they were correct. That Georgian film is actually Soviet (with ex countries included) - you just counted what viewer posted without classifying those properly.

If you're referring to https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0048324/ it has the Georgia country tag on IMDb. Also, there are bound to be mistakes, as all the data is imported manually, as I've previously said. If you want 100% guaranteed accuracy, you can track the stats on your own.

FTV:12:H-8... (1958)Yugoslavia. 10.

Image

”Translations are like women, if they’re faithful they’re not beautiful, and if they’re beautiful, they’re not faithful.”

Speeding the camera into the crash site with rapid-fire tracking shots, co-writer/(with Zvonimir Berkovic and Tomislav Butorac) director Nikola Tanhofer & cinematographer Slavko Zalar twist the opening ten minutes into a twisted metal nightmare of zoom-ins to the seats where the passengers will die, and thick smoke over the “H-8” truck having it drive with the wages of impending fear into the bus. Taking a seat with the passengers,Tanhofer parks into the up close and personal state they are in with excellent, cramped panning shots across the seats, stopping in close-ups on the Melodrama of each passenger.

Tuning the radio in with the very good un-credited narration from Slavica Fila, Tanhofer pins the Melodrama with an incredibly brittle, ominous Thriller atmosphere, plucked from Dragutin Savin’s spine tingling score, Tanhofer counts down to the final bus stop with wonderfully abrasive cuts towards the ticking time bomb of whip-pans towards empty seats,soon to be filled with the deceased.Driving between the people on the bus and the mysterious “H-8” drivers, the screenplay by Berkovic, Butorac and Tanhofer holds a refined balance of drawing sharp thumbnail sketches for each passenger as they unbuckle their murky Melodrama secrets, with the grit of impending doom tension from the truck driver,as the bus heads for a collision course with H-8.

Question on Snowpiercer (2013): http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1706620

It's got Czech money and was set/filmed there, but has a Korean Director and money. So... my question is "is it Eastern European enough to count for this challenge?"
