The kids' prank gone awey here is shown in shocking brutal detail, though this is nothing compared to what they soon undergo at a corrupt reform school with Kevin Bacon absolutely electric as a sadistic guard. Some of the plot turns in the post-reform school part of the film feel very unlikely, but this remains powerful thanks to the stellar performances of all concerned and director Barry Levinson recognising the power of a silent, lingering stare.

Quite rightly, all three top-rated comments on iCM are complaints about the film being on no Official Lists...

Boasting amazingly vivid colours and breathtaking locations (especially a maze), the fantasy/story part of this film is always aesthetically arresting. The fantasy/story is, however, populated by standard heroes and villains, and is unfortunately less interesting than the gradually developing surrogate father/daughter bond in the reality of the movie - especially when the stuntman reveals his dark ulterior motives for telling the girl the story.

Image

This has several interesting elements, with the nun a particularly fascinating character given how her behaviour outside the convent conflicts with her religious views. Philippe Lemaire also plays a manipulative and shallow human being well. It is over halfway in though before the pair properly meet and none of their actions feel credible. The motivations of Irène Galter as the younger sister are also wildly inconsistent. Uncomfortable views on rape too.

134-136a. The Day Today E1-6+Pilot (1994)
Very funny faux-news series, particularly in the back half of the show. It strikes an amusing balance that acts as a preview of what's to come from several of the cast. From the broad buffoonery of Steve Coogan's Alan Partridge character to the biting anarchic shit stirring of Christopher Morris' lead anchor that he would carry forward into the brilliant Brasseye and features like Four Lions, the show acts as one of the early crossroads of key talent that will go on to form part of the future of British comedy.

Image
136b. Bill Wurtz's History Documentaries: History of the Entire World, I Guess (2017)
Dizzying to watch but still pretty clever and amusing.

Image
136c. Plastic Bag (2009)
Werner Herzog as a plastic bag ruminating on life feels more genuine in less than 20 minutes than any number of films by Zach Braff.

Image
137. This World, Then the Fireworks (1997)
I really dug this ghoulishly perverse hyper-noir that seems to crank its archetypes up to eleven and watch the sparks fly. Everything feels self-consciously hysterical in the vein of Tales from the Crypt and somehow it just works.

Image
138. L'argent de poche a.k.a. Small Change (1976)
A pretty solid film that offers Truffaut's version of comfort food, loose narratives stick together via perspectives of the innocence of youth and coming of age. It's almost too aimless at times for its own good though.

Image
139. Outcast of the Islands (1951)
A very slow burn narrative pays off in a searing climax pitched to the heavens of a lost soul left abandoned to stew in his own misery lest it infest everything around him.

The Country Doctor is about as good as you could expect for a silent melodrama of its vintage. The overall tale is affecting; the overwrought performances less so. The Dante Quartet is more random images from the king of random images. A little bit more rhythmically done than usual, but still not my cup of tea. La joie de vivre boasts some beautiful black and white animation with its characters elegantly movie in synchrony. Quite engaging and sometimes surreal too. Vormittagsspuk has some amazing trick photography effects, reversed footage bits and stop motion animation (see above). Trying to make sense of all of the wacky images is another matter though. What Goes Up is another random images short. Ugh; these really are not my thing. Snow-White is standard Betty Boop surreal stuff; I definitely prefer 'Minnie the Moocher' since it's actually a tad creepy/unsettling, but this was pretty cool nonetheless. Poligon was probably the biggest surprise of this bunch though - a Russian animation about intelligent newfangled machinery that can detect and react to hate. Cool images and cool ideas, though ends a bit abruptly.

This is a hard film to get invested at first in with over an hour spent on police procedural drama with more dialogue than atmosphere. Things take a curious turn in the final 45 minutes though as - per the title - a sniper starts shooting at cops from the top of a building. With tracking shots and nifty editing, this final stretch is riveting, especially as children and bystanders appear in danger, and it is easy to recommend the film for this alone.

55. Zoo in Budapest (1933)

I thought that the two leads lack chemistry here and didn't buy Loretta Young as a teenager. The zoo setting is really great though and we get to see lots of animal action, mostly notably in the first half-hour as the plot darts between various visitors to the zoo before settling on the two protagonists. In fact, this rather free-form opening third is where the film feels the most alive before getting somewhat bogged down in the doomed lovers angle.

140. La ville des pirates a.k.a. City of Pirates (1983)
There are some interesting ideas swirling around in this bizarre Ruiz film (although are there any other kinds?) but like pretty much every other Ruiz I've seen, it remains too abstract for its own good, almost as if certain integral pieces of the plot were intentionally removed for the sake of surrealism.

141. Buta to gunkan a.k.a. Pigs & Battleships (1961)
I dug this rambunctious Imamura flick that finds him in an almost playful mood compared with some other films of his I've seen (not to say this movie is all daisies though). It has a kind of liveliness to it that works very well in the context of the youthful criminally-inclined cast.

No problem. ;) Hopefully we can get the film enough attention for it to regain its rightful spot in the next 500<400. It's really quite thrilling how much everybody seems to be liking this one given that most of my recommendations tend to be films that others regard as tepid or simply rubbish. :shrug:

This little-seen feature from Soviet Lithuania revolves around a boy convinced that a heroic general who he had a dream about was real - a conviction that leads him continually trying to fall asleep and lucidly dream the man back. With such a quirky premise, this is hardly a dull moment to be had here - especially as some of his subsequent dreams have him engaging in duels with his teacher. The dream sequences look cool too, shot through pink filters.

57. Hail Mary (1986)

Image

A curious modern day subversion of the Immaculate Conception dogma. The film begins well with Mary attending college courses in which her lecturers debate the existence of a god and whether humans might actually be extraterrestrials; a blindfolding demonstration is particularly potent (see above). Godard also goes to great lengths to show how flat Mary's belly is (frequently walking around half undressed) as if to question our own faith as viewers.

138. L'argent de poche a.k.a. Small Change (1976)
A pretty solid film that offers Truffaut's version of comfort food, loose narratives stick together via perspectives of the innocence of youth and coming of age. It's almost too aimless at times for its own good though.
not on the noms list. at least, not for this edition :P

This little-seen feature from Soviet Lithuania revolves around a boy convinced that a heroic general who he had a dream about was real - a conviction that leads him continually trying to fall asleep and lucidly dream the man back. With such a quirky premise, this is hardly a dull moment to be had here - especially as some of his subsequent dreams have him engaging in duels with his teacher. The dream sequences look cool too, shot through pink filters.
omg somebody watched and enjoyed one of my noms D;

I'm surprised at how few others have seen it given that it is out there and available. Reminded me a bit of Inception, lol.

The story is no great shakes here and the constant poetic title cards about how the bad guy sails "dishonestly" soon tire. What the film really gets right though is the outskirts setting with a daunting river in between the island and the mainland. The locations are simply breathtaking, captured in a range of long distance and medium shots, while the river reacting to wind and other weather factors is photographed in stunning detail.

138. L'argent de poche a.k.a. Small Change (1976)
A pretty solid film that offers Truffaut's version of comfort food, loose narratives stick together via perspectives of the innocence of youth and coming of age. It's almost too aimless at times for its own good though.
not on the noms list. at least, not for this edition :P
:facepalm: I'd like to blame this one on the kids, but honestly I have no idea why I thought this was on the 2020 nominees list.

141. Kafka (1991)
We've got some Kafka-ception business going on here. Franz Kafka himself is pulled into a paranoid conspiracy hell not unlike the sorts for which he was known to write about. It's slickly directly with a professional skill that presages Soderbergh's bigger budget work and is a solid movie but not what I'd consider one of Soderbergh's best.

Image
142. The Long Voyage Home (1940)
Honestly I wasn't the biggest fan of this one. Ford seems to just want to revel in drunken sailors fighting and palling around. There just wasn't enough of a plot to keep me engaged.

Image
143. Los abrazos rotos a.k.a. Broken Embraces (2009)
Another very good Almodovar film that's both a movie about making movies meshed with Almodovar's usual family melodrama. It's a bit surprising this isn't on any official lists.

This South Korean movie seems like a breezy comedy from the outset as a young couple meet for a date one sunny Sunday morning. As the pair converse though, the film gradually grows darker as they grapple with a pregnancy and whether abortion is an option or even what they want. The whole thing is engrossing due to how lusciously it is filmed; lots of atmospheric shots of them wandering eerily empty urban landscapes. Amazing lighting at night too.

While all of the romantic plotting and criminal reform stuff is by-the-books here, the film is elevated by Alan Hale's charisma as the main grifter and Renée Adorée whose silent, disapproving stares convey more than words ever could as the circus owner. Clyde Cook is also fine as the other grifter and has one surefire memorable final scene. In fact, the movie mounts quite a bit of tension towards the end, and this is immensely likeable overall.

16. Come Fill the Cup (1950) Gordon Douglas & James Cagney 8/10
:cheers: Great to see a high rating for this fantastic film. Maybe not an appropriate choice of icon though. :unsure:
All good. I especially appreciated it becoming sober recently (almost two years now actually). Also wasn't that impressed with James Cagney/Gordon Douglas' other collaboration that I saw, Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye. Left me feeling kind of flat, so I was happy to enjoy this one.
