12. Campanadas a medianoche 1965 — a.k.a. Chimes at Midnight 6/10
The biggest disappointment so far and my first Welles flm below 8 stars. Maybe I'm doing something wrong with theatre and Shakespeare but as a non-native speaker I struggle with poetic sounding dialogue that is filled with 17th century vocabulary that I don't understand, and with lines delivered in a swift fashion, without giving me time to comprehend the riddles in which their speaking at all. I read the plot summary and still a lot of times I had no clue what was going on on a non-superficial level. Is it a obligatory prerequisite to have read the play(s) beforehand, preferably while reading the interpretation? Chimes at Midnight looks good otherwise (like all of Welles movies that I've seen so far) although it's less impressive than Othello with which I generally struggled the same (although a bit less). The battle scene was great though (if I disregard a few shorts that were too obviously sped-up)

13. The Misfits 1961 9/10
I will definitely pick John Huston for the Director's challenge next month. Arthur Miller's dialogue and characters paired with the great acting of several legends who would die within the next years in relation with the alcohol and drug abuse that plays a big part for their characters in this movie. I feel my love of cinema re-sparking a lot this month.

The female kung fu fighter from Come Drink with Me returns in this sequel. Much of the fight choreography is impressive, especially up an ascending series of steps; there is also a striking part in which a young child chooses to impale himself. The film does disappointingly little though when it comes to further exploring Cheng Pei-Pei's character considering that the film is named after her. She has little screen time and the men get the best fights.

The set-up seems simple enough here with Montgomery Clift's protagonist squaring off against close-minded stereotype farmhands and male relatives. Jo Van Fleet though is exceptionally good as the stubborn matriarch, looking almost twice her age thanks to superb makeup, and the film becomes equally about her side of the equation, with a memorable part where she tries to force a dog sale to make a point. Lee Remick is lovely here too.

16. WARUI YATSU HODO YOKU NEMURU (Kurosawa, 1960) — Unusual role for Mifune, so neat and clean it took me some time to recognise him, not in his calculated fight against the power though, the wedding banquet at the beginning seems to prelude an interesting dense political thriller but it turns out to develop slowly into a family melodrama with several noir moments in between, very good anyway, with a 2.35:1 format that is mostly brilliant (banquet, press conference, funeral) but also distracting a few times (night visit to the 7th floor office) and an end that leaves a few unanswered questions. 7/10

Opening with voiceover that talks about the "twisted pleasure" that sadists achieve from inflicting pain on others, this thriller sets itself up to disappoint from the get-go. Nothing that the titular sadist does here seems all that outlandish in our torture porn era (he seldom hurts his hostages and all the deaths happen fast). There is still a fair bit of effective psychological torture here though and the guns pointed directly at the camera are great.

OGGI, DOMANI, DOPODOMANI (Ferreri, de Filippo, Salce, 1965) — Wives are left for a balloon, shot regularly (with blank bullets) and sold to Arab rulers in this multi-segment comedy where only the first one by tandem Ferreri/Azcona is remarkable (would be later expanded to make the feature "L'uomo dei cinque palloni") while the second is pretty silly and the last only great for Pamela Tiffin to show her charms. 6/10

6. Ples v dezju / A Dance in the Rain (Boštjan Hladnik, 1961) 5/10

I thought a lot about Tarkovsky's use of rain watching this, would not be too surprised if he saw something to be inspired by here. Daring, ambitious and interesting, but ultimately a film I respect more than like. Not sure why, maybe it moved around too fast, other than the stairs sequence towards the end this film seems to be in a hurry.

7. Da zui xia / Come Drink with Me (King Hu, 1966) 7/10

Charming and funny, Cheng Pei-pei is badass. The women army too. Will definitely check out more by King Hu.

This adaptation of William Golding's classic novel begins well with Peter Brook delivering all of the initial exposition through still photographs with the live action only beginning when the kids climb ashore. After this point, things move slowly as we wait for the boys to gradually turn savage, but this really rocks once the savagery starts and the stark black and white photography makes everything so eerie, with firelight dances and possible beasts.

03. David Holzman's Diary, by Jim McBride (1967) 7/10

04. L'assassino, by Elio Petri (1961) 7,5/10

A good police movie, whose intent is mostly to expose the main character's flaws and wrongdoings, rather than actually solve a murder case...

17. The Sadist (1963)

Image

Opening with voiceover that talks about the "twisted pleasure" that sadists achieve from inflicting pain on others, this thriller sets itself up to disappoint from the get-go. Nothing that the titular sadist does here seems all that outlandish in our torture porn era (he seldom hurts his hostages and all the deaths happen fast). There is still a fair bit of effective psychological torture here though and the guns pointed directly at the camera are great.
Lol, sorry you didn't care for this one. I can understand why I guess though it is one of my favorites I admit.

@flavo5000: I'm curious, is Dance Craze a different cut/version of Twist Craze, or the other way around? I couldn't find any info on Dance Craze.

It's a completely different short that's about twice as long from the same director (Bill Rebane, he of Giant Spider Invasion fame). It just isn't on IMDB for some reason, and I'm too lazy to add it on there. Twist Craze is pretty much just a ten minute dance party of people doing the twist. Dance Craze is actually a 20-minute overview of various dancing styles throughout history starting with waltzes in Victorian people and going all the way up to "present day" (1962).

UK is probably appropriate for the Franco Fu Manchu movies.

18. DIE TÜR MIT DEN 7 SCHLÖSSERN (Vohrer, 1962) — Still trying to fit the pieces together (I'm not sure if they do) in this murder mystery film, blended with some horror in the last stretch, it may be humble in its artistic pretensions but very effective in its entertaining purpose and kept me amused (twisted plot, plenty of characters, cheerful leads, fast pace) from beginning to end. 7/10
