Image

An unexpectedly offbeat movie from Communist East Germany. The film has some truly surreal moments, especially as the pair make love and seduce one another with live music bands appearing and disappearing in their bedroom, photographs morphing and nautical images seeping in at the height of their passions. The path that the film takes post-tragedy is a bit weird and uncomfortable to watch though as it becomes more an obsessed stalker tale.

Really creepy bunny though.
So creepy....
Yeah, I have no idea what the filmmakers were thinking when they designed their "friendly" rabbit; the cute little girl who screams her head off when the rabbit suddenly appears in her greenhouse is pretty much the only character who has a logical reaction towards him throughout the course of the film. :blink:

I haven't seen this movie, but there are still plenty of towns in the United States that make money by having the police fleece people who pass through.
https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2013/08/12/taken
Must be an American thing? :think: Never heard of that happening over here, though I do recall a similar plot in a couple of other films that I have seen over the years; I couldn't think of the title when posting my review, but Nothing But Trouble springs to mind as something similar.
Yeah, like when I was younger, this was a thing I was warned about. "Don't speed through small towns." "Don't speed at ALL through North Dakota." To this day, I'm still very cautious driving through small towns I don't know.
Huh; well, I'll keep that in mind if international travel is ever a thing again and I find myself in that neck of the woods. All very curious since things are so different over here. Oh and yeah, I watched the film because of you, max. Not that you did much to sell the film, but you reminded me of it. I have had the DVD unwatched in my collection for a while and now seemed like as good a time as any to give it a whirl.

54. Albino / Night of the Askari (1976)

Image

Sometimes known as Night of the Askari and Whispering Death, this is not the horror film one might expect from those titles and Christopher Lee's casting. The title character is a witch doctor, but the film focuses mostly on his revolutionary actions, including murder. The movie tries to offer some commentary on colonialism, how they profess to be "here to preserve order in this country" - but the film works better in revenge/exploitation mode.

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!

Jean-Luc Godard rewatches:

Image

19. Tout Va Bien (1972, Jean-Luc Godard & Jean-Pierre Gorin) 8.5 - 8.5
20. Le vent d'est AKA Wind From the East (1970, Dziga Verov Group) 9 - 9.5
21. Numéro deux (1975, Jean- Luc Godard) 8.5 - 8.5
22. Ici et ailleurs AKA Here and Elsewhere (1976, Jean-Luc Godard, DVG) 8.5-8.5

The interesting thing here is that I had almost the exact same experience as when I saw these films for the first time (likely a decade ago for each). The only difference is that portions hit harder as I have more context of what happened in May 1968 and general political theory, etc. than I had then, and that I ended up taking each of the films more seriously because of this.

Tout Va Bien (1972, Jean-Luc Godard & Jean-Pierre Gorin)

Image

I think there are two things that are interesting here - especially as they are in contrast:

1. The clarity in contemplation/massaging: Almost all Godards are irreverent, sarcastic and essentially mocking themselves - every line can be taken in so many different ways - nothing is ever "serious". This film caught its breath and allowed for serious introspection.

1.5. It was particularly interesting that it let the boss, the union rep and the workers each state their case with clarity - and focusing exclusively on them while doing so. I.e. almost no "funny business". We assess their words, their motives/interest, their cause, etc. and even more interesting: the dialogue was quite fair - i.e. the boss essentially gives one of the best liberal defenses against socialism (rising living standards, collaboration driving progress, etc.), the union rep gave a very strong case for organizing together and following through on the actual plans - and was allowed to pinpoint the hypocrisy of the "rebels", i.e. never participating in actual union activity, etc. and the workers (albeit shown, sympathetically, to be lacking words of expression/understanding) allowed us to see how dehumanized/alienated they felt, and how tired they were of waiting for improvements - and their frustration at how poorly they could express themselves.

Image
Image
Image

1.75. It was also interesting to see the dissection of the "intellectuals", who let us be honest, are the most likely to see the film - and how they struggled with their lives, emotions, views and just lacked systematic understanding - the ability to process and even communicate with each other. Jane's comments re: placing their relationship in the context of work is particularly poignant.

Image
Image

2. The technical/form based experimentation, i.e. dialog not corresponding to what we are shown, faces blocking others, certain conversations being summarised as we see them happen. The detached camera. The high degrees of meta - especially opening/ending and summarizing the creation of "a film" in itself.

Image
Image
Image
Image

It is very much a Godard film, and the latter showcases what he was doing in the 70s, and even more so in the 80s (with was essentially all form, almost no ideology - at least by comparison) - but where most of Godard's political work in the late 60s and 70s comes off as bizarre experimentation, theatre and surrealism - soaked in essayist material most people just can't relate to - Tout va bien sought to be conventional and approachable enough to work for a larger audience - which of course it also had the ability to do with Montand and Fonda.


Le vent d'est AKA Wind From the East (1970, Dziga Verov Group)

Image

Honestly, I loved it just as much as last time. It breaks down all cinematic conventions, to the point that violence is expressed with a bucket of blood, and makes an interesting premise that essentially boils down to narrative/character focused cinema being a product/instrument in upholding the status quo.

Image

What a sad world it would be if narrative cinema was pushed aside, though I also really wish there were more films like this. It is beautiful, hypnotic and an active debate - including a partial deconstruction. To me this is the ultimate anti-film, making it an absolute must see for all film buffs interested in form.

Image
Image

My main issues would boil down to the ideology - it pushes the message that you should not simply throw out slogans or read up theory, but apply it, simplify it, evaluate it - but so much of the film, including what comes after, is just this. Which may be intentional, but it is so hard to tell here. I also have to say that the argumentation is quite poor, i.e. the argument against worker autonomy is that the principle is not from Marxism but Anarcho-Syndicalism, and leaves it at that ...

Image

Again though, a surprise was how much clearer it was politically than I understood it last - and that it is obvious that it has a very specific target group, i.e. young Marxists/students - as opposed to Tout va bien, which has a broader appeal. I also think it is kinda hilarious that after, seemingly, denouncing films with characters and narratives JLG almost immediately made the latter - which while not exactly narrative character driven cinema 101, was certainly far more conventional/traditional than what he had made for a long time.


Numéro deux (1975, Jean- Luc Godard)

Image

I had completely forgotten the majority of the content. I remembered the family focus, the "there was a factory and we build a landscape around it" (beautiful), but I somehow thought it was far more poetical - I had also forgotten the degree of nudity and sexual content - and that it is described as both a porn and a political film at the beginning. It should tell you a little bit about me/my tastes that my main memory, and still my main focus on this viewing, is its experimentation with form - and not the content/messaging/analysis itself - though they are of course all interconnected.

I am genuinly amazed at the simple tools Godard uses to maintain interest and tension in long narrative sequences. His intro is him standing, face in the dark, - and an identical visual of the TV next to him, with a projector spinning in the opposite direction - and the main sound being the reels spinning. This combination of disjointed sensual experiences are immediately captivating, and the way the elements work together and inform each other is something Godard would continue to develop.

Image
Image

Staying on tension and presentation, we are often viewing split screens, often not even a split screen but two TVs, in the dark, showing images from the same scene, such as two characters carrying out a conversation. It not only works in that it still contains the narrative, but it adds additonal visual excitement/tension, and more importantly for Godards, separates you from the scene and places you in a position of evaluation - the same is done in split screens, or when scenes are juxtaposed on top of each other - even when there is just one screen we are always at a distance, the action taking place in a TV or a minimized frame within the frame.

(And yes, Numero Deux works quite well with this consistent dual screen video art)

Image
Image
Image

And that leads us to the content itself, an essay on family, on marriage, on sexual relations, of gender roles, of dominance, of violence, of work - and this comes through in a strikingly nuanced and stark way - where you feel both tenderness and distance, toxicity, etc. The distance and fragmentation allows us to get perspective, while the nudity and sexual elements are also held at bay, and deconstructed to the point that it is almost stripped of erotica.

I would say that the graphic sex, including a blowjob performed of a flaccid penis (and the nudity of the grandparents as well) - has several interesting functions - perhaps leading into the factory vs. landscape debate, where it from scene to scene and sometimes even simultaneously can feel dead and forced, and natural and sensual - and the kind of banality to it, the kind of violent expression and the more natural teaching of sex to their children (which may be disturbing to many) creates such a mix of sensory experiences - especially when coupled with the world around them - which they seem completely distanced from - once again ties in with the complex and uncertain material of the essay itself.

Interesting note: This was his first collaboration with current partner and long time collaborator Anne-Marie Miéville (she is listed as writer and not director/producer, though the film itself implies she's the latter as well).


Ici et ailleurs AKA Here and Elsewhere (1976, Jean-Luc Godard)

Image

I honestly remembered this as far more sarcastic and humorous, making me quite surprised at just how sombre and heartfelt it actually ended up being. I think Here and Elsewhere cemented how Miéville influenced Godard. We see the start of the kind of experimentation they would engage in over the coming years, but more so it is an assessment of Godard's previous work, and most importantly a look at "Here and Elsewhere", centering the Palestine conflict against the apsthetic French, and exploring, the relationship of media, television, etc.

Image

It uses footage from a never completed Dziga Vertov Groupe film, where Godard and Gorin travelled to Palestine and documented guerilla fighters - however, the majority were killed by Israeli forces early in filming. The fact that almost all are dead, and Godard's own look at his and Gorin's ethics, gives the film a very real punch, while the essay elements reminds us of how far, yet how near the conflict is.

Image
Image
Image

Ticking in at just 53 minutes this is one of the shortest full-length films JLG ever did, but it still carries a lot of strength.

Seijun Suzuki in the 70's duo.

I was wondering if anyone knows how to add titles to Letterboxd? with The Fang in the Hole (1979) not being on the site.

FTV:15:A Tale of Sorrow (1977)8

Image

The lone cinema release by him in a decade spent blacklisted by the industry, (he successfully sued Nikkatsu studio for wrongful dismissal) directing auteur Seijun Suzuki reveals he has not lost his swing from the surrealist disembodied golfing opening sequence. Expanding on a motif driven in Our Blood Will Not Forgive (1964-also reviewed), Suzuki spins the sports cars of the rich with Japanese New Wave stylisation, splashing back-screen projection in the chic open-tops,tracking a speeding car from long off in the distance wide-shots, which slam into a slow-motion of distorted screams.

Making it rather clear in the final shot his feelings about pushed into doing TV work, Suzuki gloriously takes his unique Pop-Art styling to a shimmering level of excess befitting the consumerism golfing society from the brash green pitch which Suzuki swings on with razor-sharp match-cuts, to the brightly coloured backdrops exposed in excellent long tracking shots by Suzuki dipping into the consumerism lining the walls.Picking up a club from the Manga by Ikki Kajiwara, Suzuki's regular collaborator Atsushi Yamatoya interestingly places this adaptation between their genre creations,and the oncoming epic surreal mood-pieces.

Yamatoya superbly shaves at the Sports genre in Reiko Kashiwagi's (played with a alluring flare by Yoko Shiraki) transformation from model to sporting pro, which Yamatoya hits with a hole in one into a violently excessive socialite society, where vapid TV shows play in the background as Kashiwagi becomes increasingly submissive to losing all that had made her stand out as a individual,who has now swung into a tale of sadness.


FTV:16:The Fang in the Hole (1979)10

Image

Forced into having to accept the few scraps of offers to work on TV which came his way, and handed a bright lime coloured wall/backdrop which stays on screen for the majority of the film, director Seijun Suzuki fires a shot at the limitations of the TV Movie with a blistering opening sequence which rubs close to the stylisation of the Giallo genre, thanks to the brash red, overlapping bullet shot dissolves and manipulation of film speed that Suzuki drenches his murder set-piece in.

Making the hole backed by Kazuo Sugita's shimmering Ennio Morricone- inspired Jazzy score, Suzuki unveils a impressive inventiveness in emphasising the positives of the low budget, from the moving of set dressing as if it was on stage creating a theatrical, surrealist ambiance,to the long ghostly final panning shot,where the lone sound of rain is broken by demonic laughter. Loading up Togura's paranoia, Yoshio Harada gives a gloriously flashy turn as Shida, whilst Makoto Fujita grinds Togura down,with thick Film Noir loner, (a major type of recurring character in Suzuki's works) dread at having fired a shot into the unknown.

Taking a bullet in a run time of 46 minutes,the screenplay by Atsushi Yamatoya & Takao Tsuchiya unload a compact Giallo mystery, powered by Togura's curiosity to unearth Shida's former riches,but a mistake which he can't stop slipping through his fingers, causing fangs of despair to be sunk into Togura.

An interesting concept of building a new language, but consistent chanting and talking gibberish - with some German inbetween - does not lead to a great experience. Luckily there is still a lot of nice visual play from Nekas, making it a decent experience overall.

It was weird... like $5/mph over the speed limit. So you might get a ticket for $20, even if you're 4 over. Which isn't worth going back to ND just to fight it, so you pay it, but then you have a speeding ticket on your record...

Side note: When I would make cross-country trips, I always tried to hit ND/eastern MT at night because there's absolutely nothing to see, so I didn't mind missing the scenery.

In something like this, where you have an individualized sport and you're making a movie out of it, all I want to do is root really hard for/against someone. And this nailed it pretty well. Wife had to chastise me for yelling at the screen saying "you know this was recorded before you were born, right?" but I didn't care. It was fun and engaging and a lovely watch. Supporting cast was also solid, most notably Dennis Quaid's abs, which I shamelessly admired.

43. Coming Home (1978)
I didn't think I'd like this one quite as much as I did. Jane Fonda volunteers at a vet hospital while her husband is off in 'Nam, and ends up falling for one of the patients there. It had a nice anti-war message that was coupled with actual reasons for it and really focused on the heavy toll it takes on the folks who come home. Good film.

I'm going to South Dakota mainly for Badlands/Black Hills/Devils Tower. But I have an extra day or two, and I'm trying to decide between driving up to North Dakota for Theodore Roosevelt National Park (and a few other things) or going west into Wyoming for Bighorn National Forest. I'm leaning toward Bighorn because I think TR National Park will be similar to the Badlands. On the other hand, Bighorn gets up over 8,000 feet, which is usually about where altitude starts making me feel lousy.

FTV:17:...And Give Us Our Daily Sex (1979)

6

Image


Departing from the country manor houses his works traditionally are set in, co-writer/(with Sergio Garrone) director Jose Ramon Larraz is joined by cinematographer Roberto Girometti,and continues to build upon his distinctive eye for sleaze, following Alfonso losing his innocence with a periscope that Larraz slips into peeping two-shots of Alfonso getting a glimpse of Veronica & Amiga (played with a eye-catching raunchiness by Barbara Rey and Laura Gemser) between the sheets,causing Alfonso to have sensual, surreal dreams (a major recurring theme in Larraz’s credits.)

Staying largely on the “soft” side, Larraz throws hard curve-balls with random insets spliced in,which try to steam things up,but are so out of place they come off as distracting. Revealing later he secretly got very close behind his parents backs with the maids who worked at the family home, the screenplay by Garrone and Larraz bake saucy laughs by going in a somewhat autobiographical direction, via Alfonso’s stuffy parents being kept in the dark of his desire to get in the middle of bi nurses/friends Amiga and Veronica (trios being the major recurring motif in Larraz’s works) for a private trio, as his family are busy eating their daily bread.

I was wondering if anyone knows how to add titles to Letterboxd? with The Fang in the Hole (1979) not being on the site.
You add it to themoviedb.org, and the next day it is available on Letterboxd. themoviedb.org doesn't require any verification of the information provided, and it just takes a few minutes. I have added quite a few short films there, and made a few edits to add or correct information that others have provided. The one tricky thing is that they require a precise release date, so I occasionally have had to spend a lot time searching, and occasionally have to just have to come up with the closest estimate.

I have to be honest, I absolutely detested A Tale of Sorrow. I felt thought it was extremely slight and bordering on lazy self parody (I love/like all his comeback films though). Still, very happy someone found it great, and with a 10/10 on The Fang in the Hole, I have to set off the time to watch it.

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!

12. Pictures of the Old World (1972)
I really enjoyed this, even though I wouldn't normally say this is my type of movie. There were just so many arresting images and snippets of narration/dialogue.

13. Short Eyes (1977)
A decent prison drama. Though directed by Robert Young, this is really Miguel Pinero's movie. An unreformed criminal offender, he wrote the play the movie is based on and had a small role in the movie. Filming actually took place in its real-life setting, the Tombs -- an old and infamous jail in downtown Manhattan. Curtis Mayfield and Luis Guzman appear in cameo roles (Guzman's first ever credit), while a young Bruce Davison is excellent as the title character.

Wim Wenders continued

24. Die scharlachrote Buchstabe / The Scarlet Letter (1973)

Apparently a somewhat unorthodox and loose adaptation of Nathaniel Hawthorne's mid-19th-century novel, which I've never read; in fact I think this is the first adaptation I've seen of it as well - dunno how I managed to do an English major in college, and actually like a lot of Hawthorne's short stories and films made from them, and yet be so ignorant of his most famous work. Anyway, while the setting and timeframe - Puritan New England ca 1645 - are the same, and the basic background - adultress Hester Prynne (Senta Berger, in the first performance I believe I've seen that isn't mostly decorative) is forced to wear the scarlet letter as a sign of her "crime" and because she won't reveal the male party, while scraping a living for herself and her daughter Pearl (Yella Rottländer, who is excellent), until a figure from her past returns and upsets the whole town - is also straight from the book, the development of the action goes on somewhat different lines with a different resolution. This isn't that well-regarded apparently, and the director wasn't that happy with it, but I think time has been fairly kind to it; even if the films seems a bit short and edited a little oddly, and there are other things that don't work perfectly (very strange Jürgen Knieper music for example which sounds more like instrumental soft-rock than anything else and really clashes with the dark scenario at times), there's excellent location work on the rocky Spanish coast, luminous color cinematography that certainly helps prove that Robby Müller wasn't just a b/w artist, and most of the performances, particularly Berger, Rottländer and Hans Christian Blech as the town's new doctor - and link to Hester's past. Not one of the director's best but not something to dismiss out of hand either.

25. Alice in die Städten / Alice in the Cities (1974) (re-watch?)

Had little memory of this, except possibly bits of the very beginning, and a single shot of Rudiger Vogler standing against a VW in the second half. So maybe I never saw it, and instead indeed saw Summer in the City, and have mixed them up in my head for years? Dunno. In any case, in memory this was lesser Wenders, and at the time I saw it - if I did - back in the late 80s, I don't think it had quite the reputation of his next film, at least I don't remember such. Well you can't trust memory. As it turns out this is about as great as a "road movie" can be, and it's one of the best films about an adult-child relationship - albeit an unusual, temporary one, forced by circumstance - that I can remember. Philip Winter (Vogler) is a writer in the USA, exploring the East Coast for a German news magazine, who unfortunately has been unable to make himself write and has instead just taken hundreds of polaroids. Confronted with his failure to deliver an article, he's more or less fired by his New York editor and decides to return to Munich, but not before he makes travelling companions of young mother Lisa (Lisa Kreuzer) and her daughter Alice (Yella Rottländer). Unfortunately Kreuzer ditches them, apparently to hook up with a recent ex-boyfriend again, and Philip is - or feels like he is - forced into taking care of Alice, who is around nine, quite precocious but not necessarily all that emotionally mature, and prone to occasional devious acts to get Philip to do what she wants (stop for food and drink when she wants him to, go far out of his way more than once claiming she knows where she's going when it's fairly clear she doesn't, etc). So after landing in Amsterdam, they begin a several day journey through much of West Germany in search of her grandmother - whose full name and hometown she doesn't know - while Philip not only gets more exasperated with the girl and his situation in helping her, but also in the direction his own life is going in, and why he wants to writer, what he wants to write, and perhaps (never stated explicitly but fairly obvious I think) why he went to America to pen a travelogue. This is just beautifully done from start to finish, and Robby Müller's images I don't think ever meshed so perfectly with Wenders' storytelling. There's a moment where a fresh polaroid dissolves into Alice's face, and there's the long ending shot with an unanswered question that are among the most striking images I've seen lately - and that I think will stay with me for a long time. Just great performances from the two leads, and it's obvious why Vogler became the director's stand-in for several films, and the music - by Can - is memorable, haunting, and minimal.

(I skipped Falsche Bewegung/ Wrong Move because I re-watched that just a couple of years ago)

26. Im Lauf der Zeit / Kings of the Road (1975) (re-watch)

This I remembered much better - at least the tone, the ambiance, certainly little scenes - the opening, which sort of lays out the whole "end of cinema, end of a way of life, end of the road" theme quite deliberately, the car crashing into the water, the male nudity (might have been the first I saw in a mainstream film), a few other moments. I suppose it's a summation of the director's themes and strategies up to this point - a fascination with dying small towns and the people who live in them, and an ode to older cinematic forms and the revival houses which would soon (good bit of prophecy here) give way to video. This was the favorite Wenders film of the guy who introduced me to him - probably still is - but I liked his Berlin angelic fantasy more when I saw it, at probably about the same time, and still do. It's not that there's anything I dislike about it in particular, it's just that I suppose the rambling nature of the thing doesn't quite feel as compelling after 3 hours. But the way in which our protaganists (Rüdiger Vogler and Hanns Zischler) meet, become friends, fight occasionally, and ultimately part is as eloquently and sensibly told as the relationship in the previous film, and there's a feeling in this and many of Wenders' films of both a sadness and resignation at the changing and vanishing world - and a sort of subtle determination not to allow it to change us, and right now that's really appealing. Probably overall the funniest of Wenders' 70s films, though there's a scene at about the halfway point when our protagonists meet a sad and angry fellow in a field of grain elevators that shows a darker and more tragic side than we see in most of the other films too.

27. Der amerikanische Freund / The American Friend (1977) (re-watch)

Another film also seen once probably 30 years or so ago. As much as I liked all the previous films, it's nice to have a change in cast - here we meet Dennis Hopper as an American art "dealer" of a sort, in West Germany to sell the newest painting of Derwatt (Nic Ray), a supposedly dead artist (yes - this happens right away, no real spoiler) who ends up in a complex little plot with Bruno Ganz, a picture framer living in Hamburg with his wife (Lisa Kreuzer, who in case you haven't guessed by now if you're reading my comments was married to Wenders for a while) who may or may not be dying of a rare blood disease. From there we find a gangster (Gérard Blain) who somehow knows of Ganz' health concerns, and offers him a chance to help out his family by dealing with some unwanted associates - Ganz may also have been a hitman in former times. There are a lot of little mysteries going on here, many of which don't get solved, and while the film does convey a certain noirish unease at times, it's never much of a thriller - this just isn't Wenders' forte - and ends up mostly about the relationship of Ganz and Hopper, which is a bit cryptic at times but ultimately what really succeeds in the film. Hopper is "Tom Ripley" and this is an adaptation of Patricia Highsmith's Ripley's Game; no idea how faithful it is. Yet another really terrific DP job by Müller (color this time) and another rather unusual Knieper score, and a fun little bit part by another great gritty old-time American director, Sam Fuller, who has one of the better death scenes, falling down a long flight of stairs after being shot, that I've seen.

Neo-noir nostalgia attempt, x2

28. Chandler (Paul Magwood, 1971)

OK, you start with the title. A couple of years ago there was a Marlowe based on a Chandler story about the eponymous PI; a few years later Wim Wenders would make his first American feature called Hammett. Just throw out one of these names and the public - at least a certain, hopefully significant part of the public in those days - is going to say "gotta see that." And there was a general movement in the 70s to go back to those old masters, with lots of new adaptations of stories like The Big Sleep. So this fits right in but unfortunately despite the timing being right and a terrific cast toplined by Warren Oates and Leslie Caron and featuring classic noir stalwarts Gloria Grahame and Charles McGraw, this just falls flat. Our eponymous hero (Oates) is a down-on-his-luck PI who takes a job guarding a glamorous government witness (Caron) who's the mistress of a mob boss, and they have the fairly usual round of adventures trying to get away from assassins and such, but it all ends up pretty dull and the characters uninteresting and slack - which takes some doing when Warren Oates is your star. Some good Carmel, CA locations though the film's geography is rather muddled - I don't think you can drive from L.A. to Carmel in a few minutes or an hour.

29. Pulp (Mike Hodges, 1972)

Marginally better, maybe, this British production shot in Malta but purporting to be in Italy also boasts a fairly solid cast - Michael Caine as a pulp fiction writer who gets pulled into a noir-tinged adventure of his own, the gorgeous Nadia Cassini as the inevitable possible femme fatale, Dennis Price, and like the previous film, some old-time noir stalwarts: Mickey Rooney, Lizabeth Scott and Lionel Stander. Scott doesnt' have much to do, Rooney's important but only there for a few minutes, and Stander is a key player for once, which is nice. Love that voice! But overall though this is I think attempting to be a sort of "unreliable narrator" story, with Caine talking about his adventures as if writing to his readers, while we see something at times slightly different, it just doesn't develop that aspect well, and doesn't gel as an interesting adventure in any way. Wasted cast and location work overall - nothing much to see here, move along.

30. Arabian Adventure (Kevin Connor, 1979)

British director Connor made five fantasy-adventure films from 1974-9, the first three of which (The Land That TIme Forgot, At the Earth's Core, The People That TIme Forgot were Edgar Rice Burroughs adaptations, the next (Warlords of Atlantis) an original screenplay set guess where, and lastly this film which is...you can guess the setting. I love this kind of stuff and had seen the first four films all at least a decade or more ago, but for some reason never got to this one until now. Odd, I had a bad feeling about it despite liking the others and this one having a similar IMDb rating. At any rate it's much the same - cheap but with a sense of fun about it, and a feeling that there's some love in this. It feels in 1979 as if it belongs in another era, if you're used to the bigger-budgeted fantasy-sf films that were gaining traction at the time - but most films were not Star Wars or Superman and there were still loads of smaller genre films being made, shot mostly on sets and with less-than-top-notch effects. If you can deal with that then you want a decent story, actors, etc - this provides the latter with the great Christopher Lee as of course the bad guy, an evil sorcerer who wants to obtain a magic rose that will give him ultimate power. To do this he enlists heroic Oliver Tobias, to whom he promises his virginal daughter Emma Samms - of course plotting a double-cross; of course, also, we have a cog in the bad guy's machinations in the case of a kid (Puneet Sira) with a magic amulet that can do all kinds of things. Genies, magic carpets, this has it all on a shoestring budget, plus a cool storm that the bad magician calls down on his own city! It's a lot like the 1940 Thief of Bagdad overall, not 1/10th as good but fun if you like the lower-rent Arabian Nights sorts of things, which I do, and it feels like it belongs to a much earlier age - perhaps all to the good in this particular case.

Cute spy comedy; an ordinary violinist is mistaken for a special agent and many silly things happen. I understand there's a sequel, but I'm squeamish; I doubt it would be as entertaining.

30. Faces of Death -- Schwartz, 1978.

Shock trash. It purports to be some kind of scientific exploration into the many facets of death, but it's just a dumb excuse to show lots of animal and human slaughter (a lot of it is staged, but not all of it). Stupid. Time and goodwill wasted.

31. Rosszemberek a.k.a. Bad Guys -- Szomjas, 1979.

Hungarian western set in the mid-nineteenth century. Do you really need to know more? It has a dry, dark quality to the cinematography that I have trouble describing, but it fit well with the story -- I'm not entirely sure it wasn't just my print, but if so, I lucked out.

32. The Man from Hong Kong a.k.a. Dragon Flies -- Trenchard-Smith & Wang, 1975.

Australian/Hong Kong action flick set mainly in Australia; apparently the lead was originally supposed to be played by Bruce Lee, but Jimmy Wang Yu wound up playing him -- he does fine. There's a big fight on Uluru (Ayers Rock); I can't imagine them getting the film rights to do that nowadays! After watching George Lazenby as the bad guy, I now know exactly where Will Ferrell got his Ron Burgundy costume from for Anchorman.

I think that's going to be it for me -- thanks for hosting, blocho!

19. Two-Lane Blacktop (1971) 3/10
Sorry to those of you who love this movie for my sadly low rating. I'm always looking for a good story and I just didn't feel like there was a story in this movie at all. I found the characters unlikable, the acting poor, and good dialogue non-existent Just not my thing.

20. Breaking Away (1979) 8/10
Great coming of age story that made my heart warm. What's not to love in that?

21. Coming Home (1978) 8/10
Found the love stories (both with husband and affair) very touching and I enjoyed this film.

22. The French Connection (1971) 6/10
Just couldn't get into this for some reason. Not sure if it was the pace or the unlikable characters but something stopped me from really liking it.

23. The Conversation (1974) 8/10
This one was similar in pace to the French Connection but a much more psychologically challenging plot that I enjoyed.
