This is the easiest for me to focus on so I will probably do that.

If you're not going to exclude TV, can we at least cap it at 180 minutes or one whole season or something? Otherwise, this challenge will get ridiculous. I don't think 72a allowed TV episodes at all last time that he hosted...

Are you sure? Do we have many 70s TV fans here?

I'm in favor of allowing TV.

I've thought a lot about the TV/movies issue, and while in past challenges I've used the 120 minutes of TV rule, I want to move more in the direction of runtime equality. While I personally almost always prefer movies to TV, as host of a challenge I don't think it's my place to give something a very different value based on whether it was exhibited in theaters or broadcast on TV.

That being said, if a clear consensus emerges around valuing TV less than movies, I'm willing to go to 120 minutes of TV for a point.

I would argue that the ease of binge-watching an entire season of a television series is very different to watching multiple unrelated films, but ignoring that, I don't think 60 minutes of television episodes is "runtime equality" by any stretch. While there are certainly some ~60min movies out there, most films are around 90mins long, so if you really wanted to achieve "runtime equality", I would think that 90 mins of TV episodes would be much fairer.

But fine, I won't complain. Some of my favourite TV shows were made during the 1970s and if it is easier for me to rack up points by rewatching those rather than exploring what I have not yet seen in 1970s cinema, maybe I'll go for the less challenging option myself...

I hear what you're saying, Sol. And you have a good point. The average movie is closer to 90 minutes long, so that might make more sense. On the other hand, it feels weird to have a 90 minute minimum for TV versus a 40 minute minimum for movies, even if the vast majority of movies people see are more than an hour long. I should also mention that the last time I hosted a challenge with a 120-minute TV minimum, someone complained about the disparity of that minimum compared to movies. So there are competing imperatives here.

I'm willing to accommodate any consensus that emerges. If no consensus emerges, I'll stick with the 60 minutes of TV rule for this challenge at least (I'll reconsider the next time I host). Ultimately, I would like the forum as a whole to come up with a default rule for time minimums.

...

Just as an aside, I hope philosophically that people join challenges with primary goals other than winning. I know that's a bit ironic because it is, after all, a challenge, and a winner is named at the end. I certainly don't think less of anyone who cares about winning. But I think the real point of a challenge is to see interesting things, converse about them, and enjoy the experience of spectatorship. Perhaps all challenges should be twofold - a winner is named for the person with the most points and another winner is named for the person who makes the most insightful and meaningful written contributions by posting reactions/reviews and engaging in discussion.

I have several philosophical opinions on this which are neither here nor there, my main thing comes down on simplicity. I don't want to have to track different things different. Keep it simple, easy to manage, and easy to play. Including TV with the normal 40/60 rule is fine. Excluding TV is fine. Raising the minimum film length to 60m for everything is fine. But for me at least, the least desirable approach would be separate approaches for "TV" vs. "short films"

Same. Last time that I brought this up though, the consensus was to let individual Challenge hosts make their own decisions at their own discretion. Remind me and I'll bring this up again in late November or early December, whenever we finalise the 2021 Schedule.

Just to be clear, I do not participate in Challenges in order to win them. I have won zero so far this year and there has only been one that I have even attempted to win.

The problem lies in the incentives produced by Max's Challenge Olympics with awards given for achieving 36 watches in a single month and so on. I've just come off holidays, but during the school term is nigh on impossible for me to get 36 x 3 watches. The loophole that you have provided (edit: stuffed up the example) is pretty hard not to want to take advantage of. :shrug:

Oh, and again just to be clear, I write about everything that I watch in every single Challenge that I participate in. I'm not going to stop if I doing so if I do brief TV stint this month, however writing one paragraph on the entire first scene of M*A*S*H (for example) is far less taxing than writing up individual Letterboxd reviews for the equivalent runtime's worth of feature length films.

1. Mark of the Devil (1970)

Image

Opening with graphic depictions of a man being tarred and feathered and two women being burned alive at the stake, this look at the witch hunt trials of centuries ago is captivating from the get-go and things only get more intriguing as the film goes on. The chief antagonists all abuse their power with the film providing a scathing look at absolute power corrupting absolutely. Reggie Nalder is particularly well cast one of the more vicious witch-finders.

1. Convoy (1978)
2. Breaker! Breaker! (1977)

I don't know why, but I started with two trucker movies. Neither were very good. Convoy was a Peckinpah film, so if your opinion is that westerns don't have enough big rig trucks in them, then I have the film for you! There were some cool things in there, but aside from a bar fight, crashes, and an explosion, it was cop = bad, truckers = good.

Breaker is a Chuck Norris film, so that. Kicks. Trucks. Corrupt town. You know the drill.

01. Tagebuch eines Liebenden a.k.a. Diary of a Lover -- Shahid-Saless, 1977.

This is the third film I've seen from Iranian filmmaker Sohrab Shahid Saless, and...the other two (Still Life and A Simple Event) went better. It's about a lonely, isolated man who writes in his diary...dark and depressing, but not in an interesting or involving way, for the most part. Some of my issue was probably the viewing experience, too: it was a recording taken from a VHS with a lot of feedback, and very dark. I'd still recommend his other two films that I've seen before this one.

02. Ioannis o viaios a.k.a. John the Violent -- Marketaki, 1973.

This is my third film directed by Tonia Marketaki, and the best, so far. It's a three-hour work covering all aspects of a murder, from varying witness statements to the murder's methods and psychology, to courtroom arguments. It has a Rashomon-esque structure (particularly at first), with relatively sophisticated narrative technique. The cinematography is nothing special, but adequate; it's the script and performances that appeal most.

70sShow
1. Mark of the Devil (1970)

2. Numéro Deux (1975)

Image

Consisting almost entirely of filmed television sets on black backgrounds, this Jean-Luc Godard movie depicts a bickering, dysfunctional couple with two curious children. The filming style is very dynamic, especially whenever two screens are present. Godard plays around with the size of the screens and the second set often contradicts the other as Godard uses the screen as a symbolic filter here to force us to evaluate his truth at 24 frames per second.

Highly recommended (sorry, AB).

1. Mark of the Devil (1970)
2. Numéro Deux (1975)

3. Mumsy, Nanny, Sonny & Girly (1970)

Image

Although nowhere as graphic and out-there as Singapore Sling, the Nikos Nikolaidis film might be the best comparison piece with its stranger sucked into a power play between two women who may or may not be mother and daughter. As for Girly, it is much more of a comedy and sometimes to the detriment of the outlandish premise. The satire is potent throughout though as the daughter keeps insisting "we're a happy family!" and maybe they are.

03. Bang Bang -- Tonacci, 1971.

From the title, I imagined it was a Brazilian crime film when I put it on. Wrong...well, mostly. It's an avant-garde attempt to disturb the viewer's narrative sense with a bunch of odd sketches with some recurring characters -- some scenes "make sense," while others don't. Definitely one of the weirder films I've seen this year, and easily the film with the most belching. The general vibe reminded me a tiny, tiny, TINY bit of Roy Andersson (don't get too excited, Andersson fans!), but more cluttered, dirtier, and noisier.

8. The Great White Hope (1970)

This is based on a stage play, and it showed, primarily through the dialogue. James Earl Jones was a badass in here, and that was pretty cool to see. But I didn't like the adaptation, and I blame the play. It seemed very award-baity, and just tried too hard. I'd love to see a modern adaptation of the story not from the play, as I think Jack Johnson is a super cool character from American history.
So, I'm not going to rewatch that this month, but that's what I wrote for the African American challenge in 2018. I have down as a 6/10. My biggest issue with the film is the storytelling - Jack Johnson is just so damned cool and complex, but the story didn't convey all of it. I find the biographies to be more compelling. But I would love to see a remake, especially in the current political climate in the US.

Physical media puts the disc back in discoShow
1. Convoy (1978)
2. Breaker! Breaker! (1977)
3. The American West of John Ford (1971)

John Ford is awesome, shouts John Wayne. A few other people said things, but it was all fawning.

4. A Bridge Too Far (1977)

I just didn't feel this one. One thing was that there were too many stars - individually, that cast was great, but when everyone has amazing screen presence, no one does. It felt to me more like a rote depiction of history rather than telling a story. I didn't connect with anyone, I didn't feel like the leadership cared, the deaths felt cartoony. It just fell flat on an emotional level for me.

I found quite a few 70s E & W German-language films on Kanopy, some of which I'd never heard of.
Also Criterion just added an Australian New Wave collection which is mostly 70s.
:run: STILL the Gaffer!

01. Tagebuch eines Liebenden a.k.a. Diary of a Lover -- Shahid-Saless, 1977.
02. Ioannis o viaios a.k.a. John the Violent -- Marketaki, 1973.
03. Bang Bang -- Tonacci, 1971.

04. Hanare goze Orin a.k.a. The Ballad of Orin -- Shinoda, 1977.

Shinoda's portrait of a blind musician's life. It's no Pale Flower or Silence, but it's engaging and the cinematography is good.
