59. MA VIE DE COURGETTE (Barras, 2016) — A sweet antidote to relief the horrors of animal life seen in the two previous nominees, the sorrow of these little orphans seems now like a minor issue, things are quite placid after all (perhaps too much), there is leisure, love, understanding and only some bits of strife, and on the technical and artistic sides everything is neat, without being super. 6/10

60. SKAZKA STRANSTVIY (Mitta, 1985) — Exactly the kind of production one could expect to find on a Fantasy Cinema in Eastern Europe list, a dark folk tale with blaring music that recounts the long journey of a resolute good-hearted girl in search of her younger brother, kidnapped for his supernatural ability to sense gold, in company of a healer/poet/philosopher through the snow, witchcraft, prison, dragons, Eden, ruthless law or the Plague, and deals with themes of corruption in opulence (plenty of banqueting), materialistic vs spiritual growth, purification by destruction and rebirth. 8/10

53. Spring Night, Summer Night (1967) - 7.5 Ivan0716

In reviews on LB Ijaazat is being placed in the parallel cinema movement, which puzzles me a bit. On the one hand I can see this is a serious and understated film that would play more towards an older and less towards a family crowd, so it is not completely Bollywood. But there are songs (from the most famous writer and singer in the business) and even though it is well written, this is still a pure melodrama. I don't see a lot of social or political issues being addressed... I liked it a lot, but other than the great ending, there were some issues that keep this from true greatness for me (it is no Brief Encounter or the Spring Time in a Small Town remake I saw earlier this month), I still can see why this would be held in very high regard in India though... but I don't think it is parallel cinema in the way I have understood that term.

Sangue Blu is a beautiful piece of "diva film". This 1910's genre wallows in melodrama, and that is exactly what makes it enjoyable... and also what keeps it from true greatness (for me). Spring Night Summer Night is an interesting artifact from the 60's, an independently shot movie from Ohio, showing an authentic enough view of Appalachian life. Writing is ok, cinematography and sound create a great atmosphere... it is not mind-blowing in any way and I can see how this one has got lost in the shuffle back in the day, but in hindsight I can also see how this one has got enough unique qualities to get it resurrected recently (with Refn's name attached to it, what helps getting it to a younger crowd I guess. I saw it from the Indicator bluray, but I think this one is/was also on Mubi).

6. The Little Foxes - 5/6. This was a slow burn film that took its time developing the characters and the relationships, but by the end became quite a nice film about family dynamics, cutthroat business dealings, and also a strong undercurrent of feminism (at least to my eye). Bette Davis is great as always, and you really have to think how differently this family tragedy could have played out if Regina could have inherited the family business alongside her brothers, and if she didn’t have to be twice as cold and calculating as the rest of the men in order to get what she wants. I really liked this one.

Bogie is as solid as ever here, gradually progressing from cynical to altruistic after seeing the blind trust that his latest fighter has in him. It is a fairly predictable character arc though and topped off with a highly moralistic, message-heavy ending, the film does not really pack any punches. The excellent black-and-white widescreen photography keeps things chugging along. Hugo Friedhofer's score is appropriately rousing too, but only crops up on occasion.

And that's it for me. Thanks for hosting, Mel. :poshclap: And thanks for keeping everything so interesting with the bonus challenge game and all, even if the uptake wasn't that great. Really cool to see that you want to carry this on for Japan. I'll need to think about what to promote.

Oh, and congrats on win, flavo - and for keeping me on my toes. Managed to watch a record number of DTC candidates this year. I'm 33% complete on the current iCM list; hopefully this will go up rather than down with the next update. :unsure:

I actually hadn't planned to be as engaged in this one but I just kept coming across interesting-looking movies I wanted to watch in the nominee list. Lots of good stuff in there.

It's okay. I wasn't planning to win this one. Or the Middle Eastern one either. :whistling: It was really fun making good progress in both challenges though thanks to various public holidays and lockdowns in April. :pinch: Oh, and your hosted challenge too was good for finally getting me to watch more Plympton beyond his shorts. I'll ignore the fact that it additionally motivated me to watch more dreck. :lol:

Fitting also to have Bogie's last film as my last one for this challenge. Completely unintentional. It's just where the 80-film mark was on my watch-list.

61. HERUTĀ SUKERUTĀ (Ninagawa, 2012) — There are great visuals here, stylish, colourful, clean, baroque and very appropriate to the central theme, being pretty and popular through fashion and cosmetic surgery (if necessary) to make up for the lack of affection, identity, strength (or whatever), but, after the initial punch, everything turns little by little into a bit of a disaster with characters that show vague motivations, loose ends, jagged storytelling, an awful score than seems to be more often than not out of place and an hilarious climactic scene at the end (the knife). 5/10

Image

62. SÃO PAULO, SOCIEDADE ANÔNIMA (Person, 1965) — A bitter man of harsh manners, married because of weariness ("too lazy to look for something better") and discontent with the lifestyle, women, updated role models and dirty play brought by the industrial development (from coffee to oil, steel and cars) in Brazil, I couldn’t care much for him (too sour) but seeing the scenes of his wanders (streets and surroundings of São Paulo, VW factory, nightlife, museum, beaches of São Vicente, etc.) was interesting and well filmed. 6/10

f) Postava k podpírání / Joseph Kilian (Pavel Jurácek/Jan Schmidt, 1963) yes
34. Pytel blech / A Bagful of Fleas (Vera Chytilová, 1962) no

This improvised brief snatch of life in a girl's boarding school, connected to a textile factory - I guess the girls work pays for their education and boarding? - feels like a rehearsal in some ways for the director's most famous film Sedmikrásky, released four years later. It's a celebration of female craziness, mania and obsession with few limits, and it's enjoyable for that and for the free-form nature of the filmmaking - lots of amateurish and unrealistic acting feels left in on purpose, and the camerawork is, if not as manic as the behavior, fairly wild within the limits of a low budget and b/w. It certainly lacks the surrealism of the later film but whether it's a try out or not, it's enjoyable enough.

35. The Spectacular Now (James Ponsoldt, 2013) no

Teen dramedy about life choices at the end of high school - this is fertile material in probably every major cinema tradition, and I've certainly seen my share of them from this country. This is an above average example I'd say, buoyed mostly by the really terrific performance of Shailene Woodley in her breakout role as the smart girl and possible new girlfriend for protagonist Miles Teller, kind of a nihilistic party guy who can't really see the life ahead of him - perhaps too influenced by his absent father in that regard. Teller irritates me even when he's good (which is usually) and when he's supposed to be a snotty guy, don't know what it is about him, so that's a little problem, but Woodley and Brie Larson as Teller's former girlfriend pretty much make up for it and the film manages to have "real" enough dialogue and go in interesting enough directions to make it worth a look, though it's certainly not among the best even in this category.

36. Zum Vergleich / In Comparison (Harun Farocki, 2009) yes

Excellent documentary that spells out it's deceptively simple method and message in it's title; it's a comparison of people working at brick-making in several countries (Burkina Faso, India, France, Germany, Switzerland) and on several technological/economic levels. The Burkinians are working more or less the way people have for millenia; the several sites in India shown range from just above this neolithic level to something early 20th century, and the European factories are of course very modern, ranging all the way up to facilities that do nearly everything robotically. Not only do the numbers of workers needed for each job diminish as we go up the tech scale, but the workers' interactions and the sense of community, of what making bricks to build something - a school, a hospital, etc - actually means. In BF it's all very real and on the ground and men and women and some older children are all involved, with little division of labor but also with a knowledge of just what they are creating; by the time we get to Switzerland, it's almost completely abstract, the person minding the computers could be making atom bombs, twinkies, porno dvds, or... bricks.

37. Over the Garden Wall (Nate Cash, 2014) yes
11x10 minute episodes, 110 minutes total

One of those films that I've seen pop up on various lists over the last few years, but being a Cartoon Network show - and with my general distrust in ratings or lists of American animation of the past 25 years or so - I never really gave it notice until reading something quite.. ecstatic might be the word... from a source I trusted (wish I could remember where, now, oh well, thanks anyway). So it went into the queue and, well, while I'm not willing to say it's the greatest thing since sliced bread or anything, it's pretty special. The animation is not extraordinary or anything - it is American TV after all and that rarely means top of the line - but it is more than serviceable and man how much TV work has improved over the decades. But in any case it's the narrative, a sort of melding of various fairy-tale and children's lit elements, with references to such diverse sources as The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, The Wizard of Oz, Alice in Wonderland and Betty Boop - but all done matter-of-factly, no calling attention to anything, no "see here, aren't we clever that we have the witch melt just like Margaret Hamilton did". No, it's an exquisite melding of children's fantasies and nightmares in a story - a series of brief adventures - of a couple of brothers and their adventures in a dark forest as they try to get home, helped (maybe) by a talking bluebird, hindered (maybe) by a woodcutter who might be a terrible Beast or might not be and... well, all kinds of stuff, really. The writing and dialogue are really what sets this apart from most contemporary American animation set in fantastic realms - it's matter-of-fact and up-to-date without being smarmy, full of contemporary in-jokes, or childish. And the voice acting by (among others) Elijah Wood and Collin Dean as the brothers, Melanie Lynskey as the bluebird, Christopher Lloyd as the woodsman, plus short roles for John Cleese, Tim Curry, and Shirley Jones, etc, etc - the voice acting is simply some of the best I've heard in a long time. It's really a quite wonderful, remarkable comic journey, marred only by a too-quick ending wrap-up that unfortunately takes a bit of the magic spell off things. Still quite wonderful and a prime example of how to do this kind of story, something I no longer count on seeing from Disney or anyone else in the American animation world. I guess I need to start checking out Adventure Time now.

38. American Dreams: Lost and Found (James Benning, 1984) maybe

Probably the most challenging Benning film I've seen - at least, challenging to watch. Three separate "narratives" play all at once - visually we have images of the career of Hank Aaron, one of the greatest baseball players of all time and when this was made, the home run champion; there are pics of his cards, posters, etc, all static shots that pass by. Meanwhile at the bottom of the screen there's a crawl taken from the 1972 diary of Arthur Bremer, who planned but failed to assassinate President Nixon in both Milwaukee and Ottawa, before eventually shooting and paralyzing candidate George Wallace, the former governor of Alabama. It's mostly about his plans and about prostitutes he sleeps with. And finally there's the soundtrack which includes pop music, occasional snatches of news that involve the other two "stories" in the film, and various other events of the late 60s and early 70s - a tapestry I suppose, or dreams "lost and found" as the title says. I think this is probably the last Benning film I'd recommend to anyone, and then only to those interested in and at least somewhat knowledgeable of American history and culture of this period - it'd be incomprehensible and very tedious to anyone else, and on a formal level while well done and somewhat unusual it's hardly unique. I "liked" it quite a bit myself but it seems something of a sport within the director's filmography, from what I've seen so far anyway.

39. Krysar / The Pied Piper of Hamelin (Jirí Barta, 1986) maybe

Like Tekkon kinkurîto, this is a film most notable for it's absolutely amazing art direction - in this case it's wood-carving animation, something I don't think I've ever seen in a feature-length film. It ends up having the feel both of old woodblock prints - I'm thinking stuff from medieval Germany in particular - and German expressionist films, particularly Caligari

Image

and it's really something to look at; this is another of many films I've seen this month that I'd just kill to see on a much bigger screen than I have (and with an audience). The way the narrative begins, with the greedy townspeople slowly being overrun by rats, is pretty damn brilliant; the direction things go in after the pied piper comes is perhaps just a little muddled and not quite as interesting, so on the whole I can't quite say I loved it - but it is certainly memorable for the artwork alone.

40. Ma vie de Courgette / My Life as a Zucchini (Claude Barras, 2016) no

Icare is a 9-year-old boy who is sent to an orphanage after his mother...well, after something happens with his mother, something we're not ever entirely sure of. His mother is deeply alcoholic and abusive, but when he loses her he insists on being called "Courgette", the name she seemed to give him in anger. Hmm. Some interesting psychological elements in this story of a young kid trying to fit in and trying to understand why adults sometimes go away or act badly, and it's all beauifully animated in old-fashioned stop-motion. It's another film I more or less ignored, until noticing that it was written by Céline Sciamma - one of several films she's written but didn't direct, and I liked the writing here quite a lot, though I think this is another film that suffers a bit from being too short and wrapping up just as we're getting to really know some of the secondary characters.

This is it for me. Very happy with 56 seen (out a total of 82 features this month) for the challenge
Lineuphere turned out to be the nominator I watched the most from (5) and with one exception those were all phenomenal
I stuck to my plan of watching a lot from India and the Philippines, also went for Mexico, Sweden and Egypt as main points of interest this year
I am currently #14 on the Doubling list with 792/100 seen, slipping just past St. Gloede in the ranking today! ;)
My total number for the ballot this year ends at 639. A record for me I think. But this is also the first time I actually spend a month "working" on it...

I took it on the road today with funny movies from Yugoslavia and Finland (something light to round things off!). After starting with a Turkish film that mostly goes for tension (slow genre-style built up throughout) but then tops it off with an ironic ending that makes you feel the director is critiquing (some elements of) Turkish society... or male stupidity (as the female voice of reason is constantly ignored by all)... so nothing world shatteringly unexpected in what it is saying, but a well made and entertaining film nonetheless. I had only seen the recent A Tale of Three Sisters (2019) before from this director, which I liked even better.

thanks to our host, and everybody who takes time for a few or more lines to write up their thoughts on the movies!

"End of documentary, back to real cinema!"

Dedicated to Norman McLaren and Jean Roach feels closer to love child between Hiroshima mon amour, Breathless and the early, rough Moral Tales of Eric Rohmer - granted at a much faster tempo, hyper-aware and infused with a free-flowing narrative and style of Roach and the cinema verite movement. It really feels as if Jutra had been stuck in a dark room watching the latest French exports and thought: "I can do that!" - and he was absolutely right. (Note: Jutra was likely not able to see Rohmer's two first Moral Tales, both released the same year).

What we get is a combination of short takes, intimate touches, kisses, fantasy, glances, walks, shootouts, more kisses, more embraces. Is it an empty self-indulgent film, or a film bout empty self-indulging people - who cheat, play and feel superior? It may be a little of both, but it captures a certain kind of artistic milieu and the self-obsessed protagonist - Claude - played by Jutra himself - and almost every actor in the film plays a character who shares their name. What is real, what is not? There's an existential element as Jutra's carries forth Rohmer's self-dissecting, full of himself and all-consuming "hero".

Image
Image

This is such a raw, but clever and stunning low budget film. Almost no dialogue (if any) is shot naturally. Words are often spoken off-screen and much of it is Claude's own internal monologue and life-views - as vacant, frail and self-indulgent as they may be - but the atmosphere and low of creation shine through - and what's more, it uses its limitations as an advantage. The shots are stunning, intimate, and often getting straight up in people's faces - or focusing on objects rather than people. We also get the jump-cut style of Breathless, where empty moments disappear in favour of a semi-jarring but effective style - that sometimes make undertones and hostility extremely clear. This floating, rhythmic narrative - that occasionally chosen to break itself - either with random play or fool-hardy fantasy is an utter delight and showcases immense talent, creativity and resourcefulness. 8.5/10

I lost my spark for films early on this month, so I completely fell off the wagon for this challenge. I had a lot of (presumably) great films lined up too. I gained a little bit of my mojo back in the last few days, so I squeezed in a bunch of shorts, but I didn't have the energy to make it through a full feature.

1. Tepenin Ardi [Beyond the Hill] (2012) - 7.4 - 3
2. El haram [The Sin] (1965) - 7.6 - 4
3. ~80 minutes of shorts
i) Radio Dynamics (1942) - 2.8 - 0
ii) This Is It (1970) - 5.0 - 0
iii) The Girl Who Swallowed Bees (2007) - 6.8 - 1
iv) Cities of Gold and Mirrors (2011) - 6.8 - 1
v) Martin pleure [Martin Cries] (2017) - 6.8 - 1
vi) N.Y., N.Y. (1957) - 4.6 - 0
vii) Tifusari [Typhus Victims/Typhoid Sufferers] (1963) - 6.6 - 1

Ratings are my personal rating out of 10, and then my likely DTC rating out of 6.
Films in bold I'll most definitely rate 4, 5, or 6 and really hope they make the list. Films in italics I'm less sure about and will probably get a 2 or 3.
Films seen
0. Skagafjörður (2004 short) - 3.0 - 0
0. Ma vie de Courgette [My Life as a Zucchini] (2016) - 8.2 - 6 - my own nomination
0. Marty (1955) - 8.0 - 5
0. Tulevaisuus ei ole entisensä [The Future Is Not What It Used to Be] (2002) - 6.4 - 1
0. Common Threads: Stories from the Quilt (1989) - 7.8 - 4
0. The Queen (1968) - 7.8 - 4
0. Komisario Palmun erehdys [Inspector Palmu's Error] (1960) - 8.0 - 5 - This kind of felt like a Finnish The Thin Man in tone. Looking forward to the sequels.
0. Plaire, aimer et courir vite [Sorry Angel] (2018) - 7.8 - 4
0. The Telegram Man (2011 short) - 7.6 - 3 - or maybe 2. Decent short, but not sure if I consider it "canon-worthy"
0. Films to Break Projectors (2017 short) - 3.4 - 0

Consisting primarily of conversations and monologues, this is not a particularly cinematic experience, but the low-key approach generally suits the material well, and the director still gets some exquisite shots in, whether it is the pair watching projected movies together or the protagonist staring out at a ship at sea. Both Geoff Edholm and David Schachter do well with the lead roles, the latter in particular when interviewed, and the ending really resonates.

This was excellent, Ferg -- and the best film that I have seen in nearly a week. With 20/20 hindsight, I think you should have promoted this rather than the more divisive Zero Patience. I mean, I liked that, but Buddies will probably be getting a 6/6 from me. :)
Fun fact: The "home movies" shown in this film is actually footage from (at least) two of the director's earlier films.

Thanks for picking one of my nominations as a bonus film for the challenge, sol. I'm pleasantly surprised you liked it. And thank you to everyone who gave Zero Patience a shot, even if none of y'all liked it :P

I knew that Zero Patience probably had a zero chance to make the list, but I just loved it so much I had to promote it. I've accepted the fact that my film tastes are not very aligned with the DTC audience, so I generally just pick the best films I saw in the previous year, regardless of how likely they are to make the list. I liked ZP a lot more than Buddies, even if Buddies is the "safer" choice for this forum, it was "just another AIDS drama" (albeit a great one and one of the first ever) whereas ZP was a whole different entity, and I wanted to push people to give it a chance (I figure people are more likely to see Buddies on their own, especially since it's been recently restored and promoted). If one or two people watch them and fall in love with them as much as I do, then I'm content. Maybe Zero Patience (and Buddies) will make the <400 list this fall even if they don't crack the DTC.

I was too. I'm not usually too big on these talking-heads type films, but damn, that ending really cemented it for me. Great film.

63. HANARE GOZE ORIN (Shinoda, 1977) — Much more elaborate than the other Shinoda nominee I watched in this challenge (as a matter of fact, they seem to be made by different directors with different aspirations), this is a very special film, the ballad of a wandering blind woman in turn of the century Japan, made with feeling for poetry in every image, moving and graceful, all finely crafted and accompanied by the subtle and simply magical music of Toru Takemitsu. 8/10

Image

64. THE BURGLAR (Wendkos, 1957) — A film-noir built around a serious burglar that seems to be much more concerned with his word and sense of duty towards his late protector than with the dough, there are a few promising ingredients (wealthy spiritualist, corrupt cop, very young Jayne Mansfeld, outdoor locations) but somehow the outcome looks more like routine above average than memorable. 6/10

Big thanks to our host, specially for the extra work involved in all the stats (we checked more than 50% of the nominees in the end!), and to everyone who posted their write-ups; not only they give me ideas as to what to watch next but also teach me how to read a film and then write down a short note about it.

Usually I write them in word first when there's a few of them but I done fucked up and it pisses me off and my day will suck now. So maybe I'll come back and re-write some of them, or not - only a few are really worth the attention and even I don't care that much.

We'll see. I can easily imagine lots of people hating it. I kind of knew I'd like it when I first heard about it several years ago - was planning to watch it and a bunch of other Khavn stuff last fall with the SE Asia challenge but got burned out. I think maybe it was better this way, not to see it alongside his other work, and maybe save that for a second viewing.

A very rewarding and striking closing batch here. I particularly appreciated the port-set social noir from Pagliero (drawing upon the scars of war to allude to the hardships and harshness of life, work, marriage in Le Havre - a touching, poignant, vivid film of the personal amidst the struggling expanses). I also shall treasure Rekhviashvili's remarkable, visually arresting contemplation on identity, place, bureaucracy from 1979. The compositions and movements here (whether in ritual, talk, discussion) evoke a timelessness and an affinity with place that proved utterly all-enveloping. The flowers of the forest floor are exquisitely lensed, and give it the feel of a national tapestry (albeit of a localised focus). A great and sacred film, short as it is... Pipping it (just!) as the greatest viewing of my challenge is Królikiewicz's stunning, disturbing, elliptical, deeply disorientating look at a personal relationship somewhere in the reality/unreality of their minds that spirals and begets cruelty and depravity. A nihilistic and astonishing film (in both form/language and atmosphere - sordid and threateningly off-kilter, yet dangerously fragile and even vulnerable) from one of my very favourite film-makers. Surely one of the outstanding feature debuts.

(Screenshots from 'Na wylot' and 'XIX saukunis qartuli qronika')

25. Otklonenie / Detour (1967, Grisha Ostrovski, Todor Stoyanov) - 7 or 7.5/10 / 3/6
26. Na wylot / Through and Through (1972, Grzegorz Królikiewicz) - 10/10 / 6/6

Thanks for hosting, Melvelet! It was a really fun challenge. Wish I could have watched more, but at least I added many of those that interest me to my Mubi watchlist.

:cheers:
That's all, folks!

Great work everyone!

The winner (or perhaps the top 3) should get an extra nomination for next year, don't you agree?

Thanks to all participants! I hope you all had a great time and discovered wonderful movies

Congratulations to flavo5000, sol and sortile9io for being the top three participants

Winner of the bonus game is sol, followed by zzzorf and filmbantha. Overall I'm quite happy with the bonus game participation, most of the higher ranked participants have watched at least one recommendation and almost all recommendation found an audience.

We also managed to watch more than half of the nominations, 638 of 1178, which amounts to 53.9%
Current recommendation: Mandala (1981)

thank you
this was indeed, as expected, the best challenge for finding new favorites
also some nice responses on some of my favorites, good to see Na Wylot getting much love for instance!
with so much American films being watched, it is a bit sad that The Unspeakable Act and Classical Period are not being sought out...
but there is nothing to complain about
:cheers:

Hurrah! :party: I achieved something. :banana:

Thanks for the timely wrapping up of results. I will update the challenge leaderboard some time in the next 24 hours (can't promise I'll get to it tonight).

The winner (or perhaps the top 3) should get an extra nomination for next year, don't you agree?
Top 3, um, why not? I'm taking a screenshot of this post and keeping it for next year's DtC edition.
