Glad to hear you liked this one. B) I have been plugging it for a while now, but it's always hard to convince others to give it a go. It could definitely benefit from extra support to get it in the top half of the 1000<400 list some day. ;)

The finances of the Gallery are a curious central focus here with the question of how to "be a part of popular culture" without compromising what the gallery is about. Another central focus is the curators and their passion really reverberates. Particularly potent is one curator who talks about how "a painting doesn't have time" to tell a story the same way as a film, as well as another who waxes poetic about how paintings preserve things forever.

Growing up with an abusive father and neglectful mother, a young boy takes to drawing to escape his dysfunctional family in this coming-of-age drama. Evan Rosado is excellent as the curious lad who slowly discovers that his family is imperfect and that he is very different to his brothers. Stop animation is also used well to bring his illustrations to life at several points. None of the characters beyond the protagonist are really fleshed out in depth though.

Life at an isolated mountain village is captured in vivid detail in this silent Soviet documentary. The film has a definite propaganda slant but is watchable throughout due to many creative ways that the footage is shot and edited. Of particular note is a sequence in which the camera rocks up and down while stones are being thrown from a tower; there is also a very innovative part in which a manure shovel is pointed directly into the camera.

75-78. "Môsô dairinin" (2004, Satoshi Kon) #605
79-80. "The Final Cut" (1995, -) #563

Both miniseries were brilliant.
A lot of my friends were praising Paranoia Agent when it was originally aired, and now I can see why.
As for The Final Cut, I really loved "House of Cards" and "To Play the King" but I'd never watched the third act of the trilogy. Amazing performance by Ian Richardson again here.

Richard Burton and Curd Jürgens are both solid as the two leads here, however, this is a film that only really takes off in its final half-hour when the mission has been completed. The pre-mission scenes dull, hitting familiar love triangle notes; the actual mission is a bit more exciting, but things only really get interesting is only as the pair begin to converse and discuss cowardice and "the fine line between war and murder" as they head back.

While his first world problems are not always relatable, Ben Stiller does a great job infusing his character with both anxiety and deep sense of longing and regret, and it is very easy to relate to this side of his personality. Stiller definitely carries the film, but Mark Mothersbaugh's stringy score is equally as pivotal with the music often seeming to taunt Stiller as his anxieties build up. The film ends a little abruptly - but that's life. Highly recommended.

This starts off with university lectures and seminars cut between administrators discussing how to fund and run the university, before gradually shifting between student protests and dissent cut around the board meetings. It is a curious progression with Wiseman pinpointing the bind that all concerned are in; the university needing high fees to retain staff, yet the students believing in free education for all. The film is more interesting though during classes.

Some pleasant surprises the last few days!

-Billy Budd, the start is not very promising, is it going to be a standard sea mutiny adventure, are we getting the cliche sadistic commander character, is it really going to take two hours??? But then the characters turn deeper and this turns out to be a nuanced parable about justice vs law with interesting moral dilemma's and tragic choices that seem very timeless and universal to me. I was fully engaged.
- 24 frames promises to be a very static affair with Kiarostami reducing his minimalistic impulse even further to what is supposed to be a still image. But these frames are very much enhanced, animated even. And there is a continuity in a use of birds (mostly crows) and tone (mostly black and white and wintery) that adds further depth and also makes this a fitting farewell from a great director.

The others are solid too, Chunhyang is especially great as a beautiful celebration of how art enhances our lives. Turning Gate is typical Hong, with better cinematography than I'm used to from him. My problem with his work is that I never like his male central characters (and since it seems always for a large part autobiographical, I guess I do not much like him?). Here we have another asshole. At least he seems to be aware of this, and the subtlety's of the script don't paint him in a pretty light... and I do like to "hang around" like the characters in his films always do, so it is not like I'm annoyed while watching it... but there is not much to gain or think over either. Larks on a String is a pleasant comedy that was bound to be made under a communist regime, but a bit too pleasant for me to make a real impression; it's more about the guy getting the girl and living happily thereafter than either a protest or a depiction of reality.

Shot on location in the picturesque fields of Scotland, this is a beautiful-looking film, and the interiors look equally gorgeous, illuminated by candlelight. As a narrative though, I found Sunset Song to be extremely dull. Everything that occurs feels melodramatic rather than down-to-earth and with little sense of urgency. Things do get a bit more interesting towards the end as we see and hear about the effects of World War II, but eh, this wasn't for me.

Even though they are very good and worthy of the 500<400, I still can't promise they'll end up on my list. I make a list from scratch every year and sometimes I am all inclusive (véry big list in my case), sometimes I am "only the very best of my favorites"... it's not an exact science for me. But you can always remind me when the time comes and ask me to put them on my list in case they aren't. I don't mind giving them an extra push if you think they need it.

Oh, you can count on me to remind you. ^_^ Amazingly, Ladybug Ladybug has never been in the 500<400 despite being in the 1000<400 for years (it was also formerly in the DTC).

The basic story here is pretty generic - it is your classic underdog tale - but it is pretty well done all things considered. Danielle Macdonald is solid in the lead role and the fact that she is not conventionally pretty and slightly uncouth brings much edge to the story; she is not instantly likeable, but the more we see about how much she cares and how deep her passion is, the more we become invested in her fate. Same for her mother. And the PBNJ song rocks.
