This fourth film in the franchise basically recycles the plot of Carry On Sergeant but with incompetent new police (rather than army) recruits. This results in a similarly episodic tale that feels more like a collection of skits as opposed to a cohesive narrative like the prior Carry On Teacher delivered. Some secondary players (Joan Hickson as the local drunk; Irene Handl as an upset mother) are really great here though and I did laugh a fair bit.

Easily the best of the first five Carry On films, this entry benefits from most the spontaneous and unpredictable plot of the first five. The gang here work for an odd jobs company with much zaniness as the most seemingly mundane jobs end up as much more. There are also several very funny moments as the jobs get mixed up. Kenneth Williams is especially hilarious as his advances lead to him being arrested. Joan Sims has some of her funniest acting bits here too as she gets drunk (see above), while Sid James being mistaken for a VIP at a hospital leads to several amusing situations.

But at the bottom, the immanent philosopher sees in the entire universe only the deepest longing for absolute annihilation, and it is as if he clearly hears the call that permeates all spheres of heaven: Redemption! Redemption! Death to our life! and the comforting answer: you will all find annihilation and be redeemed!

Image

The first entry shot in colour, Cruising looks dazzling at times with very vivid hues. It is also nice to have Esma Cannon from the previous entry back on hand in a bigger and zanier role. The plot is pretty second-rate though, essentially just recycling the formula of Sergeant and Constable. Kenneth Connor's lovesickness is more grating than ever too, while the likes of Hattie Jacques, Joam Sims, Charles Hawtrey and Leslie Phillips are sorely missed.

20. The Go-Between (Joseph Losey, 1971)
This is a visually beautiful movie whose plot is very, very familiar. The old story about thwarted love across class boundaries, here enlivened just a smidgen by the narrative device of an adolescent go-between, easily bores. It doesn't help that this movie really takes its time. There's nothing wrong with a long movie or a slow pace, but there are lengthy scenes here that are entirely pointless.

21. Phantom Thread (PT Anderson, 2017)
A very unusual movie, brilliantly written/directed/acted, featuring what must be the most riveting omelette-based scene in movie history. The whole thing is an astonishing creation, a hodgepodge of elements and themes: gothic, thriller, romance, art movie, ghost story, family drama, marital drama, class drama, maybe even a rather tortured metaphor for brexit (though I admit that interpretation goes rather too far). It's all too much for one narrative, and yet somehow the different parts become a harmonious whole. I admit that during the first third of the movie, I had no idea where it was going. Near the end, we get that omelette scene, whose narrative importance I will omit. But I never imagined two people staring at each other for a full two minutes as an omelette sits between them could be so full of dramatic tension.

As an aside, the movie reminded me of this article I read about Karl Lagerfeld and his favorite model. Lagerfeld, who died earlier this year, was a fashion designer and metaphorical vampire: https://nyti.ms/2NfQeIa. It's worth a read to see how twisted these people in high fashion can become, which is one of the themes of Phantom Thread as well.

Despite the same director and cast members of the Carry On movies, this is quite different stuff with a non-episodic plot and equal parts comedy, romance and drama. Alas, with barely fleshed out characters, the comedy (especially Kenneth Williams and his too fast orchestra) works much better than the drama. The film benefits though from lively turns by an absent-minded Eric Barker and a witty, insulting-delivering James Robertson Justice.

Jessie Matthews does okay here and the film is littered with imaginative Busby Berkeley style song and dance routines and glorious outfits, but the comedy side of the film is very undernourished. It is over a third of the way in before Matthews begins to impersonate her mother and the mounting coincidences required for the premise to work are ridiculous. The comedic potential of her lover having to pose as her son is never realised either.

This British romantic drama feels incredible long and drawn out as a close to two-hour affair. Ralph Fiennes is well cast as ever as a wealthy and bored aristocrat and Liv Tyler is okay as his love interest, but there is not enough going on between them to warrant such a lengthy production. The film has its strong patches though; a duel filmed in the mist near a gloomy harbour is particularly exquisite (see above). The sets and costumes are elegant too.

22. Bohemian Rhapsody (Singer/Fletcher, 2018)
Even by the standards of hackneyed musical biopics, this is dreadful.

23. I Know Where I'm Going (Powell/Pressburger, 1945)
A very pleasant romantic drama from the Archers. Enlivened by strong performances from Hiller and Livesey and an unapologetic strain of Scottish romanticism.

An amiable battle of the sexes comedy from the Carry On team. With a female empowerment angle, this is one of the better entries in the comedy franchise, and quite possibly the very best. Plot points aside, the film benefits from spinning the tightest narrative of the first seven movies with only two protagonists and jokes that enhance the plot (i.e. not the skits typical of the series). Hattie Jacques and Sid James play well off each other too.

But at the bottom, the immanent philosopher sees in the entire universe only the deepest longing for absolute annihilation, and it is as if he clearly hears the call that permeates all spheres of heaven: Redemption! Redemption! Death to our life! and the comforting answer: you will all find annihilation and be redeemed!

19-22. The Devil’s Whore (UK 08, mini, 4 eps, Marc Munden) - triple (Rewatch)
Only movie I've found that captures the 1960s-like turmoil of mid-17th Century England. It depicts the Civil War & Commonwealth periods through the eyes of a fictitious heroine who, born to privilege, becomes involved with the Levelers - an egalitarian movement led by John Lilburne, whose writings proved seminal to the US BIll of Rights. After Cromwell crushes the Levelers, our heroine briefly visits the Diggers, who established agricultural communes on recently privatized common lands (the focus of Kevin Brownlow's Winstanley) and the Hippie-like Ranters.
not pictured:Show
Quakers, Fifth Monarchists, Muggletonians, Grindletonians, etc etc. Lilburne did not die in prison as the movie has it, but was released and joined the Quakers.

I had originally seen this on Youtube, but it has just shown up on Amazon Prime, consolidated into 2 longer episodes under the title The Devil's mistress. Its new release is certainly timely -- When Cromwell pronounced himself chosen by God, I laughed out loud.
