YES! Your rating that is, not the no-win ratio. Bancroft was good, but I really think that Caron should have won it that year.

This overly sentimental drama addresses some okay moral quagmires, but ethics and morality is rarely at the forefront though with the film instead indulging in flimsy romances, surrogate father/son melodrama and Tobey Maguire exploring the world for the first time. The film's blatant pro-abortion stance also felt weird/uncomfortable to me for a film about kids who would not be alive and able to enjoy the world had their parents aborted them.

19. La ciocara / Two Women (Vittorio De Sica, 1960) Actress

TCM. As the TCM host reminded us both before and after the film, Sophia Loren was the first winner of an acting award at the Oscars for a performance not in English. This strikes me from the vantage point I sit at 60 years later as very much a style-of-the-times award; not that she isn't good exactly, but this particular vision of the long-suffering yet always sensual and proud Italian woman is one that fit in with Hollywood's views at the time, and the performance - like all the performances in this film and some of De Sica's others - seems often over-the-top today, at least to me. It's a portrait of a woman who has made it good running a shop in Rome who has to flee with her 11-year-old daughter (Eleonora Brown) into the mountains during World War II, suffering privation and eventually much worse at the hands of... well that's spoiling it a bit. Loren was only 25 when this was filmed and Brown really was 11 but they both look a few years older - still the age difference is disconcertingly small. Jean-Paul Belmondo appears (dubbed by another actor) as a radical Christian anti-fascist. This was consistently worth watching but ultimately didn't add up to that much for me - I'm not as entranced by the neorealist movement as most, and I generally prefer De Sica (and Loren I guess) in a more comic mode, as in L'oro di Napoli.

20. Una giornata particulare / A Special Day (Ettore Scola, 1977) Actor, Foreign Language Film

TCM. Mastroianni got his second Oscar nom for this and his performance holds up well against the contenders, though I'd have probably given it to Richard Dreyfuss, the winner for The Goodbye Girl, myself. I've only seen one of the other Foreign Film noms, so can't say much there. This seems to be one of those films that has aged well for a lot of people, and while I liked it a lot myself I'm not necessarily sure I see what the fuss is about either. Mastroianni is a middle-aged gay anti-fascist writer and radio host who has been fired from his job and is about to be deported to imprisonment in Sardinia, while Sophia Loren is a naive, uneducated housewife who goes along with her fascist husband and children who have mostly likewise been drinking the kool-aid, though on some level even early in the film she resents it. They live in aparments across a courtyard, and on the day that Hitler comes to Italy for parades and mass rallies, both alone, they meet and have a potentially life-changing experience. It's all beautifully done and I for one think Loren's performance is the real standout here (though Mastroianni is certainly good); it's notable for the extremely color-drained, almost sepia photography which works better here than it does in many films, though I suspect I would only really love the look here if I got to see it in 35mm. Very moving but I guess it doesn't quite add up to brilliance for me; then again the last scene is really wonderfully done. I dunno, feels like something that may improve later...

Redemption! Death to our life! and the comforting answer: you will all find annihilation and be redeemed!

07. 'The L-Shaped Room' / 1962, Bryan Forbes / 9.5/10 / 1 nomination / 0 wins
YES! Your rating that is, not the no-win ratio. Bancroft was good, but I really think that Caron should have won it that year.
Oh, certainly! She deserved every award going. One of the most beautiful performances I have seen in a very long time. As the film went on and the lives became interconnected at this boarding-house, I became ever more entranced. I ended up sitting in front of the television with my head cupped in my hands and my heart beating for her experiences of happiness and sadness. She brings a radiance and a vulnerable sensitivity and also a luminous sensuousness to her young woman finding new connections in a difficult, challenging time.

I laughed, I cried, I smiled, I couldn't take my eyes off the proceedings... She is quite wonderful amidst the gently observed, very human and touchingly developed character parts. All these individuals coming together in this setting with their foibles, fears and insecurities could have made for soap opera but what we get is something tender, deeply humanistic and indeed transcendant. Several scenes will stay with me forever... The park and them lying side by side, her walking hurriedly through the crowds after making a hugely important decision (the lensing so vivid and fluid), and the scene (that should have clinched her the Oscar) on the stairs as she breaks down so gradually in exploring and expressing her (and his) feelings. Watching her quiver and tremble as emotions came to the fore here made my heart ache at her experiences and tumult.

A quite beautiful and enchanting performance in an important, intelligent and exquisite example of boundary-pushing '60s British cinema. It's most definitely one I shall cherish!
That's all, folks!

It is hard not to enter this expecting something along the lines of Fuller's war movies (The Steel Helmet; Fixed Bayonets!), i.e. less about fighting and more about their characters postulating about life. Hell and High Water has none of this though with half the dialogue spent on the officer tiresomely discussing how one scientist is a pretty woman who somehow got "mixed up science" as he puts it. Some good suspenseful moments too though.

If clearly designed as a call to arms for aspiring American scientists, this film has some curious bits as it looks at the achievements of Germany and the USSR - in particular, an outlandish claim that sets and props from Fritz Lang's were used in actual rockets, before speculating towards the end that the low budget Soviet sci-fi films of the 1950s are what the US should be looking with rocket design (!). An interesting ride despite the odd dubious claim.

Contamination from chemical dumping is the subject of this Oscar nominated documentary that tours several US states, occasionally interviewing those affected. Most potent is an interview with the parents of a child whose birth defects have been attributed to the chemical contamination, but there is also a potent walk through several acres of land while its owner explains how he unsuccessfully took the chemical dumping companies to court.

Image

The snowy exteriors of the polar region are arresting to look at here and the film provides a brief history of previous expeditions and why they succeeded or failed, with archive footage from a 1911 expedition used well, yet while the project is quick to point out the irony of humankind having ventured into space while our own planet has uncharted areas, the film never quite elucidates the importance of the potentially deadly expedition.

Image

Directed by the reliable Jack Arnold long before his rise to fame, this docudrama has some great shots throughout, especially a montage of worker faces over Communist flags. As a narrative though, it is tepid at best with an irritating framing device. The whole thing is sentimental and the flashbacks as he remembers his union days feel odd, such a part where it suddenly cuts to him narrating "we won union recognition" without actually showing it.

This H.G. Wells adaptation benefits from some excellent time lapse special effects, the steampunk style time machine itself is pretty neat and there is a lot of fascinating discussion and debate about the fourth dimension and time travel theories. The protagonist's earlier time travels are, however, more interesting than his later adventures as he leaves the craft and encounters a 1950s paranoia-induced nuclear apocalypse, a flimsy romantic interest etc.

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!
