Rafal Zielinski - purveyor of generic 80s teen comedy schlock (25-29)

Image

Rafal Zielinski was born in Montréal in 1957 and spent much of his childhood and young adult years in Europe, before returning to North America and studying at M.I.T. His first directorial credit is for a documentary short in 1978, and his early film education included studies under direct cinema pioneer Richard Leacock, but while he has made a few independent films that have occasionally made small impacts on the awards circuit, his career has mostly been devoted to highly commercial cheesy crap, at least when it was centered in his native country; since the mid-90s he's worked mostly in the USA and his films since then look to be a mostly more interesting lot, though they remain extremely obscure. I can't say much about his skills or particular focus or filmmaking techniques based on these five films - they are all highly derivative cheap exploitation films and feel more the product of an assembly line (schlock-mesiter Jim Wynorski is involved in a couple of them, and some were distributed by Roger Corman) than any real individual creator.

26. Screwballs (1983)
27. Loose Screws aka Screwballs II (1985)

Canadian horror films I'm sure get more notice simply because of the large numbers of horror fans out there, and because they've continued to be a big part of the national output for most of the last 50 years, but from the late 70s through the early 90s, back when nudity was still a common element in American and Canadian film, the teen-sex-comedy was also ascendant, no doubt for some of the same reasons that the horror film has been so successful - cheapness of production, and wide appeal among the least-discriminating audiences. Given the huge success of Porkys in 1981, it's no surprise that the 80s in particular is a decade chock-full of this stuff, and it's no surprise that most of them are pretty close to the bottom of the barrel.

Screwballs charts the fortunes of five loser guys who each get a week or two of detentions and bond - despite being respectively a couple of handsome jocks, a fat loser, a nerdy braniac, and a transfer from another school. Right away you lose even the slightest sense of reality with this kind of scenario. Anyway they spend the whole film trying to get under the skirts of the one virgin left, "Purity Busch". Yep that's the name and a good chunk of the other names are just as bad - the school is named "Taft-Arthur" or T&A, there's a "Bootsie Gooodhead", a "Jerkovski" and the principle is "Stuckoff". This is the level of humor on display. It's sleazy, unfunny, full of offensive or at least tiresome stereotypes, and none of the actors make any impression at all.

Loose Screws is a sequel in name only, with essentially the exact same plot but at a new school - the oh so cleverly named "Beaver High" - and with just four guys representing every type seen in the first film except the transfer student. Allen Deveau is the only returning cast member, playing essentially the same character (the braniac), named "Howie Bates" in the first film and "Hugh G. Rection" here. Ha ha it's funny if you're 12. This time it's the snooty French teacher they're all trying to bang. I found this marginally more entertaining than the first film though less than 48 hours later I couldn't tell you why easily. Cuter girls maybe? Anyway, enough of this shit, on to new stories, new ideas...

28. Recruits (1986)

I guess this is a Police Academy knockoff; haven't seen any of the films in that long-running series but it's pretty obvious as a point of comparison. And I doubt they're much better than this dreck. Basic storyline involves a small-town Mayor planning a visit from the Governor (yes it is supposedly the USA - like nearly all low-budget Canuxploitation films this is pretending to be American though some obvious spelling issues ("centre" for "center") and accents tell the real story to the sharp-eyed/eared consumer) and needing to hire a bunch of temporary motorcycles cops as added security - but unknown to him, the police chief wants to sabotage the Mayor and get his job, and he plans to do so by hiring total incompetents who will make the Mayor look bad. Ho hum. Unlike the rest of these 80s Zielinski films, this does feature one star-to-be who might be known to a significant audience: London Ontario's own Loita Davidovich, here in her second film and first significant role. She left Canada for Hollywood not long after this and was a fairly significant name through the 90s with films like Blaze, JFK and Leap of Faith in her credits list; here she's just the recruit with the best, uh, assets.

29. State Park (1988)

More genre retreading, surprise surprise. Another teen comedy but this one set in the great outdoors - supposedly Michigan but really Québec - like many other teen comedies, many of them Canadian, most notably 1979's Meatballs. A disparate group of young people, including three female friends and two heavy-metal dudes, go to Weewankah State Park for some good ol' summer fun but find out that the Park's gonna be taken over and bulldozed by an Evil Developer who is maybe pumping dangerous chemicals into the place. So there's a guy dressing up in a bear costume (the mascot of the park) trying small acts of sabotage, and there's a rigged (for reasons never explained) wilderness race, there's a somewhat amusing (but predictable) musical cameo, and a fair amount of nudity (though less than the previous films - this is the late 80s and by now tits and ass are starting to disappear from the mainstream and PG13 is slowly taking over). Better than the first three films but still not all that good.

30. Last Resort aka National Lampoon's Last Resort (1994)

Hey it's the two Coreys! I don't have any memory of this film from my video store days - I'm sure we had it, but it doesn't stand out - but I do remember one of my favorite co-workers, Uri, who love-hated these guys. I think it may have had to do with the fact that he was exactly the same age as them and was also a suburban Jewish kid, and he was just the right age for the dumb teen comedies they made even though he was (when I knew him) already getting serious about people like Tarkovsky and Godard. I'm sure he loved and hated this film most of all, because even without seeing their entire oeuvre yet I can pretty safely say this must have been the worst film they made together. Because it's one of the worst things anybody's ever made. This is one of those films that is just mind-boggling in it's awfulness, a string of entirely unfunny gags and jokes thinly held together by the dumbest of plots and serving maybe only as an excuse for the filmmakers and actors to spend some time in the Cayman Islands where it was filmed - though given that it's mostly done on sets, and there are just a few beach shots, it seems to me it could've been filmed anywhere warm with sand. I guess there was some tax scheme or something. Anyway as far as a "plot", the two Coreys head down to the private resort run by the uncle of one of them, who used to be an old-time movie swashbuckling hero. But unbeknownst to them the uncle's "enemy" - another elderly actor who always played the villain - is after the island and will stop at nothing to get it, including sending bungling henchmen (the hulking Tony Longo and some other dude who reminds me of Tom Green) and... shit, I don't remember what else. I'm already blotting this out of my mind. I think it's maybe harder to describe what makes a terrible comedy so terrible than it is to talk about most other kinds of films - even if you remember the jokes indicating the context and such is difficult and not worth the trouble. I'll just conclude by saying this is the worst film I've seen this year so far and conceivably the worst comedy I've ever seen. There are a few moments that were funny in the unintentional way, but not enough for me to call this so-bad-it's-good. It's just unwatchable.

31. Starship Invasions (Ed Hunt, 1977)

A pleasant surprise, in some ways comparable in my mind to the Antonio Margheriti films I watched during the first iteration of this challene, 2 1/2 years ago; not that this cheap Canadian SF film bears any particular resemblance to those cheap Italian flicks of a decade earlier, but in it's weird costumes and sometimes cool production design, it hits the same sweet spot for me. As a matter of fact it feels quite "dated" in the sense that it seems more a film from the late 60s than one from the same year as Star Wars and Close Encounters, and not just because of the cheapness or poor effects. The skin-tight female costumes (a couple of varieties) and the day-glo decor inside the alien undersea station remind me most all of British TV and filmed SF of the late 60s - early 70s - Doctor Who and UFO in particular. The story - well, there's a UFOlogist (Robert Vaughn) who goes around the US (but really Canada) interviewing people and collecting evidence, and there's an alien race that wants to destroy humanity so they can move their dying people here (a story done many, many times in film and literature - This Island Earth from 1955 is one of the most notable and obvious antecedents), led by Christopher Lee in a pretty goofy costume -

Image

and as I said, there's this undersea station run cooperatively by a bunch of different alien races (which means some of them are different colored or have weird heads as you see in this still), some of which are against Lee's plan, so there's a fight between the different aliens that develops. The effects are beyond shoddy by 1977 standards but as I said, I liked the look of the thing enough, and it's at least fairly competently put together. No great shakes overall but one of the more fun cheapo SF films from it's decade.

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!

From the director of the best of the Jason Voorhees movies (Part 6), this is easily the best Friday the 13th: The series episode that I have seen so far. It benefits from an amazing premise that gives way to lots of imagination and creativity as two children's playhouse allows them to transport themselves into their imaginations - quite literally. There is an acute abusive parenting subplot too, plus the kids are adorable if mischievous and driven to evil.

And here's something interesting -- Canada has recently overtaken the UK as my second most watched country this year thanks to this Challenge. :banana:

A decent motion picture about the dangers of the dark web, giving out personal details online and modern technology literally invading one's life. While the protagonist makes a few foolish decisions online, the mystery at hand is riveting and the film is very atmospheric, shot in low lighting with often just the glow of the screen illuminating the face of the lead actress, but the film loses its way near the end by going down more a supernatural route.

It was pretty fun sitting back and watching this pilot episode of Friday the 13th after watching so many other episodes first. Directed by the reliable William Fruet, it spins an adequately spooky tale of a cursed doll with a very young Sarah Polley (see above) as doll's owner, led astray to evil ways. Polley and her doll take up less than half the runtime though since so long is spent introducing the characters, the antiques shopping setting and so on.

18. My American Cousin (1985) BC-en - 7.5ish
19. Forbidden Forest (2003) NB-en - First to check - 7.5ish
20. Un homme et son péché [A Man and His Sin] (1949) - QC-fr - 7ish
21. Next of Kin (1984) - ON-en - 8ish
22. Goon: Last of the Enforcers (2017) - ON-en - 7.5ish

A good batch of films. My American Cousin was one I'd been looking for for quite some time, so I was glad to finally get to see it. Quite good, and the two leads are quite decent, especially Sandy, and Butch's accent didn't bother me so much as it has other people. A nice snapshot of a place and time not often shown on film. Forbidden Forest was meant as an easy throwaway check for NB, since it' sonly 70s minutes, but I actually found it quite engaging. It's about the forest industry in the province, and how the government own Crown Lands were being (mis)managed. The ending is somewhat abrupt, and I'm curious to know what's happened in the last 15 years. Oh, and one of the main subjects is a French citizen with a British accent, which threw me at first. Turns out he's the grandson of a famous NB financier and son of some famous artists. A Man and His Sin is a decent literary adaptation. It takes some time to get into it, but it was fairly enjoyable over all. I've got the sequel lined up for this week, as I'm really curious to see how the story ends, since the first film ends on a less than happy (though not terribly tragic) ending.

Next of Kin started off rather dull and boring, but it really picked up once the lead character left for his trip. Perhaps it was meant to be that way, showcasing his boredom with his life at that point. This film is much better than it has the right to be, especially for a debut, and I was pleasantly surprised by it all. One article online says something about the film defeating the director's attempt at pretentiousness (or something to that effect, whatever that means), and while I don't quite agree, I do think the film is better than it is on paper, and the lead actor grows on you, and the family dynamics that unfold are quite interesting. I also found it an interesting study in psychology and self-delusion, when you want something to be real so badly, you ignore the obvious signs that it's fake.

Goon 2 was hilarious. When the first film made the most recent TIFF poll, I was surprised and thought "really?", but then I watched it later on and it turned out quite decent for a hockey movie aimed at straight white dudes. When the sequel was released I wondered if it was necessary and again thought "really?", but I decided to watch it to knock of MB from my list (turns out that the film this time was filmed in Ontario, not Manitoba, so I've got another one lined up instead), and I started it on Sunday afternoon when I was tired since I didn't sleep well the night before, thinking it's the perfect movie to fall asleep to, and I'll watch whatever I missed when I wake up. I didn't fall asleep, though, as I was laughing so much. I even had to pause the film a few times because of my laughter. The stupid humour is there, but it didn't bother me so much, and there are some great jokes (with my favourite being the street hockey "Next goal wins" scene when Kim Coates yells "Car!"). Scott it dumb as a tonne of bricks here, but he's just so gosh-darn earnest it's hard to hold it against him, and the other characters' reactions to his stupidity are quite funny. Pill (she reminded me of my sister here) & Cuthbert are great as well, (Popular Mechanics for Kids reunion!), and Baruchel's over the top character thankfully takes a backseat this time. Nothing groundbreaking, but I had a better time than I thought I would watching this movie, and that's always a plus. And then I took a nap.

I'll update the OP shortly.

And here's something interesting -- Canada has recently overtaken the UK as my second most watched country this year thanks to this Challenge. :banana:

Similar story for me (for features, at least). For the YTD, I'm
55 - USA
29 - France
29 - India
28 - Canada
20 - UK

Whereas Canada was also behind Japan, Indonesia, and Senegal, and tied with Germany at 6 before this month's challenge started. Plus, it's managed to stave off France in my all-time stats, though I suspect that will be temporary as my viewing habits tend to include more French films in general, thanks to Mubi (and the plethora of classic and modern French films that I still haven't seen and have been steadily catching up on).

Speaking of French, I was expecting French to catch up to Spanish in my language statistics this month; turns out that French Canada has produced far less horror schlock than the rest of the country - and most of what has been produced there has been in English (helps cater to international markets?). I'm surprised by how much of this horror-ish stuff has been from Alberta, though Ontario, British Columbia and Québec (in English) still dominate.

If well acted, this horror film is slow to get started with much time spent on an older brother belittling his sibling, but everything becomes extremely dynamic once both of them become scared. Are we merely seeing a folie à deux a la William Friedkin's Bug, or is something really out there? The film maintains a nice ambiguity regarding this conundrum throughout, and there are some effective spooky moments with the limited lighting used well.

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!

Okay, I just checked out the credits. All three of these films are Mexican. The director did receive some funding from Canadian institutions for all three films, as per the listed credits, along with funding from other sources in other countries. On the surface, I wouldn't accept any of these for this challenge, but to be consistent with other uncertain cases brought up here, I'll accept Verano de Goliat for this challenge since imdb lists Canada as the first country of production (though I'm fixing that now, lol); the other two aren't eligible as one doesn't list Canada at all, the the other only as a secondary country. That being said, Verano do Goliat will also count as a Spanish language film for the bonus challenge.

Canada is listed as a country in the details section for Pereda’s Los mejores temas (2012) & Perpetuum Mobile (2009) as well… just saying.

On the surface, I wouldn't accept any of these for this challenge, but to be consistent with other uncertain cases brought up here, I'll accept Verano de Goliat for this challenge since imdb lists Canada as the first country of production (though I'm fixing that now, lol); the other two aren't eligible as one doesn't list Canada at all, the the other only as a secondary country. That being said, Verano do Goliat will also count as a Spanish language film for the bonus challenge.

Canada is listed as a country in the details section for Pereda’s Los mejores temas (2012) & Perpetuum Mobile (2009) as well… just saying.
Canada wasn't listed on Perpetuum Mobile when I checked last week; it was listed solely as a Mexican production (as mentioned in the quoted text), and Los mejores temas listed it in second. I'll submit an update for PM to list Mexico first.

From the OP:
- Try to use your own common sense regarding eligibility and/or ask when in doubt. If it's on any of the lists linked in this post, then it's eligible. If it was nominated for or won a Genie/Gemini/Canadian Screen Award/Etrog, then it's eligible. If it's simply an American movie filmed in Canada, or a Canadian director making an American film, then it's not eligible (unless it meets one of the other criteria).
These three films are all Mexican films filmed in Spanish in Mexico with a Mexican cast and crew directed by a Mexican-Canadian. Yes, they received some funding from Canadian institutions, but they also received funding from institutions from other countries. Would you argue to include these films in a Dutch challenge given that Netherlands is listed as a production company? These three films were all recognized as Mexican by awards bodies as well (two of them were nominated for Ariels for acting), while none of them were recognized by any as Canadian by any awards body as far as I can tell.

My original decision stands; neither film is eligible for this challenge.

Hey, Ferg: Is this movie eligible? I didn't think, but I thought I would check.

Just a quick note to say that I think you're doing an amazing job with keeping on top of eligibility, Ferg. I know it's something that sometimes takes a bit of research and I appreciate your efforts to keep this challenge as actually-Canadian as possible. :thumbsup:

Somewhat off-topic, but this is the song that has kept playing in the back of my mind during this Challenge: tehe

This Friday the 13th episode has an intriguing premise with an anchorman's doppelganger committing murders and then phoning in to tell the anchorman about the murders while he is on air. Obviously, they cannot be the same person but why do they look so similar? While I was gripped throughout, the revelation of what was go on underwhelmed me, though that perhaps comes from my preference of other similar topic films.

Far from the college-set slasher that the title and various promotional posters promise, this is mostly a film about moral fibre and tough choices, being about a mean-spirited prank gone awry. While the whole thing sometimes feels like a soap opera episode with some of its melodramatic plot turns, it is all quite watchable when one gets over the fact that this is not going to be a horror film, though there is actually a decent dose of psychological terror.

This may have gone under the radar in 2015 but has real relevancy in Covid-19 times with talk about "not trusting mainstream media" regarding a pandemic and its origins. As a horror film though, this sits clearly on the side of the conspiracy theorists. It also massively overplays the pandemic horrors, with the victims snarling like beasts and lunging at the camera, which makes this unrealistic for a film that tries to be about pandemic dangers.

Internet trolling in the subject of this fascinating documentary. Among those interviewed are various victims of trolling, a woman genuinely remorseful of her drunken death threats that landed her in prison, an anonymous man proud to be called a troll, and a psychiatrist who has studied the modern trolling phenomenon. The most intriguing is the proud troll who talks about how boring the real world is and entertaining it is to provoke others online.

06. Come on children, by Allan King (1973) 6/10

A nice doc, but I found it to lack explanations and/or contexts. The kids are sweet and troubled, but the scenes almost seem random at times, and it's hard to get anything out of the movie...

There have been some great horror films made about evil mirrors, being pulled into mirrors, reflections that don't actually reflect, etc. including the highly under-rated Poltergeist III, which came out in the same year as this Friday the 13th episode. Alas, despite the cool concept and great William Fruet at the helm, this suffers from the same thing as all the weakest episodes so far: too much of Ryan and Micki for it to work as a standalone tale.

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!

This was good - a dramatization of a mass shooting at an engineering school because the guy hated feminists. Did a nice job at showing how fucked up that guy was and making you care about the key victims. Nice film.

This was fine enough, just a little boring. I have friends who are swingers and we talk about sex a lot, but not THAT much. After a while, the talking just got boring and everyone kinda annoyed me in their own way. Plus, they shit on psychology, so screw them.

Spider was good, with some great atmosphere and great acting from Fiennes, but it was terribly slow. I found my attention wandering at times, and I wonder if the isn't more engaging. I'm still not sure of what was real and what wasn't, but for once I don't mind not having all the answers by the end of the film.
SpoilerShow
As a result of me not always paying close attention, when Richardson replaced the two other actors in two other characters, it definitely made me doubletake and doubt if there had been another actor at all, which I thought quite brilliant and unintentionally put me in the position of Spider, wondering what was real and what wasn't. The fact that Richardson looked like a younger version of Redgrave, despite not being related to the Redgrave-Richardson family, made the late movie switch that more effective.
Riel Country had just enough French to hit my 40% rule for this challenge, I think, and the subjects in this documentary often switch between the two languages. Interesting look at the racial divide among teenagers in two neighbourhoods of Winnipeg. I would have been just entering high school when this was released, which gave the film a bit more meaning to me. Worth a watch if you're interested i the topic, as it's less than an hour.

Qaggiq & Nunaqpa are two earlier short features from Zacharias Kunuk, made a decade before Atanarjuat. They're not particularly good, with poor camerawork, little plot, and insufficient hardcoded subtitles that don't translate everything and show up a few seconds late. They both purportedly take place in the 1930s, but if you said they were contemporary documentaries I would have believed you. That being said, there's something powerful in them, the way the actors move through the scenes and the dialogue, showing glimpses of Inuit life that I was unfamiliar with, such as the seal oil lamp, the games/challenges they play, the way they dismember a caribou carcass, and the building of the qaggiq (like a giant igloo). The fact that these two independent films got made all the way up in the high Arctic 30 years ago is quite an achievement, though, and these films do deserve more exposure. Make sure you're in the right frame of mind, though: it took me almost 8 hours to watch two 60-minute films because I was tired and distracted.

This is quite atmospheric and even rather spooky at times with some haunting overhead shots of the trees of the isolated woods location set to music similar to Jóhann Jóhannsson's Sicario score. This atmosphere is, however, often broken up with flashbacks and conversations between the brothers talking about their differences, and it is not until the final quarter of the movie that anything definitely horror-like occurs. Intriguing metaphor though.

A film about a group of office workers who discover the sinister true purposes of the mysterious boxes they sort through at work during a farewell party. The set-up is deliciously satirical with the employees' jobs being so mindless that they never stopped to think what they were doing. Anna Ferguson and Paulino Nunes are also very creepy as their bosses with enough weirdness throughout that this is still interesting even as it falls apart towards the end.

No relation to the Terrence Malick film, this Friday the 13th episode involves a Druid cult that is (artificially?) impregnating women with male-female twins, only to steal the girl upon birth -- with only one woman ever getting wise to it. The whole cult thing and feminist spin is interesting, but how exactly they manage to achieve opposite gender twins each time is left murky. Micki and her crew also receive a lot screen time, which is seldom good.

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!

I agree with Ferg on the Goon sequel. I really enjoyed it. Just some great lines in there, especially Sean William Scott's opening monologue about his dream about a monkey ship.

I got on a documentary kick after the discussion in another thread, so I started with a doc about movie posters, including the glory days of painted poster art, the fall of a poster genre, and the recent resurgence. Overall, really cool to see some of these posters and look at the artwork and hear from the artists. Definitely worth a watch if you're interested in film industry history and/or poster art.

24. Anthropocene: The Human Epoch (2019)
Well, if you've seen Manufactured Landscapes or Watermark by Jennifer Baichwal, you should have a good idea of what you're going to get - BEAUTIFUL shots of the impact of humans on the earth and our environment. Snippets from all around the world about how humans are wreaking havoc (e.g., the most polluted city in Russia, the huge mine in Germany that's eating towns). I love this style of doc that emphasizes the visual imagery to convey the message. Going on my favorites list (as did Watermark).

25. Examined Life (2008)
Director interviews philosophers. A couple of the conversations were interesting, but for the most part it felt like a combo of the wild thrills of a classroom lecture on philosophy with the ramblings of random people on the street. I'd recommend steering clear of this one (kinda wish I had).

Set in a future in which petrol and privately owned cars have been outlawed due to limited resources, this dystopia movie focuses on rev-heads who flaunt the law and spend all their time drag racing. The idea of banning petrol is intriguing, but it is always hard to get behind the protagonists' love of driving since all that they do with their cars is fool around. Good explosive action, but this is unconvincing as a film about driving as a human right.
