6. Otets Sergiy (1918) 5/10
After discovering that his fiance was the mistress of the Tsar, a prince runs away to become a monk. I found the story a little hard to follow, it's broken up into episodic parts as the prince goes deeper and deeper into his monk-iness but I never really understood what his motivations were. I have not read Tolstoy's story but after reading up on the film a bit more it sounds like it's probably more effective. Lead actor Ivan Mozzhukin has a good face for the screen and is enjoyable to watch, the film has some nice looking aesthetics but eh I just don't couldn't into the story or the film.

Not wanting to follow in the footsteps of his estranged triad boss father, a gay young man lets his straight roommate impersonate him, which leads to all sorts of complications in this comedy. While there are a few iffy moments that border on gay conversion therapy and some lame jokes in the mix, the story works okay since a lot of the focus is on the roommate learning triad leadership beyond queer issues. There is also some excellently choreographed action.

Year Range: 1922 to 2021. Years covered already:

You clearly haven't seen the shots of the food they have on that show. Gives my stomach a boner. :P

Also, I mean, I don't feel bad about getting one point for a show I'll inevitably put 10-20 hours into this month...

Thanks for hosting Flavo.

My range: 1918-2018.

I'm starting with a short & sweet viewing:

Time to finally crack this open!

FTV:1: Seven Samurai (1954) 9.

“This is the nature of war:By protecting others you save yourself,if you think of yourself, you’ll only destroy yourself.”

Spanning across two disc, Criterion present a pristine transfer,with the film being supported by two detailed audio commentaries,and a third DVD packed with interviews.Spreading the 148 shooting days across the entire year,with the studio fearing a disaster as production went four times over the original budget on what would become the title with the longest run time to come from the film maker, editor/ co-writer/(with regular collaborators of this era Shinobu Hashimoto & Hideo Oguni) directing auteur Akira Kurosawa reunites with cinematographer Asakazu Nakai and lays out the battleground canvas in long panning shots across the farmland.

Charging to a superb score from regular composer Fumio Hayasaka, (the last completed score for a Kurosawa movie he would do,before dying of tuberculous in 1955 at 41 years old) Kurosawa continues to build on the experimentation with light that had been ignited in Rashomon, via reflecting shards of light across the samurai in the heat of battle,which gets whipped by rain hitting them like a sword through the heart.

Binding each of the loner ronin together, Kurosawa expands on his sharp eye for depth of field, with ultra-stylised dolly shots and delicately composed tracking shots unveiling an immerse atmosphere which glides the audience deep into the village, that is burnt down by Kurosawa’s excellent, distinctive screen-wipes slicing into the bond of the seven, leading to a poetic, Pyrrhic final shot.Detailed by Kenneth Turan in the Criterion booklet that the title was written in 6 weeks, with Kurosawa banning co-writers Hashimoto and Oguni from taking any phone calls or having visitors come round their homes until the script was completed, the writers have the destruction from war (a major theme in Kurosawa’s work) hang in the air,as the dialogue becomes increasingly brittle from each battle that opens new wounds in the samurai's.

Wandering the land with no direction home, the writers match up the moral code of each samurai with new personal power from their new responsibilities which becomes an armor, that gets hammered from each battle, where their aggressive behavior poisons their relationship with the locals and grinding down the moral line of separation between the samurai and the bandits, until their decades-held code of loyalty is left as a pile of ashes on the hills. Spinning across the battlefield like a rabid Tasmanian Devil, Toshiro Mifune gives a fantastic performance as samurai Kikuchiyo, who coming from a poor farming family, carries an anguished aware of the decay seeping in, but is unable to turn away,from charging in with the magnificent seven samurai.

Years done: 1954.

7. Madame DuBarry (1919) 6/10
Jeanne is a poor seamstress who becomes the mistress of King Louis XV while saving her first lover from a death sentence and helping his military career. The first half of this film is stronger than the latter. It's light and comedic with Pola Negri exuding a playful charm. All the actors are good and even though it has that typical over the top theatrical silent acting it doesn't feel distracting or annoying here and works fairly well. The sets and costumes are quite nice and give a lot of life to the shots. But the second half of the film has no energy and just seems to drain away all the life it had built up in the first half. I wasn't that into the plot and the second half got more into the drama and story and although I never found the comedy particularly funny it just had a much nicer vibe before it got heavy on the drama.

5. Army of the Dead (Zack Snyder, 2021) - 6/10
It starts off strong, but it's about 45 minutes too long, so by the end the dumbness becomes grating.

3. Knife in the Water (Roman Polanski-1962) Poland 13 official lists 3,199 checks

Oddly enough, I felt like this movie was too restrained and needed a darker twist to it. What it was was fine, but it got dull during the first hour.
Let's do the Time Warp again!

While no Duck Soup, this is easily one of the Brothers' stronger films with a cohesive narrative for the most part as opposed to some of their other more skit-based affairs. Zeppo also gets to show off more of his comedy chops than usual, though Groucho still gets the best moments. Particularly good are the film's silent pantomime sequences with Groucho sneaking up behind characters. Chicho and a woman-harassing Harpo really got on my nerves though.

This comedy follows the rise of a volleyball team consisting entirely of gay and trans players. The queer representation is quite refreshing here but the characters mostly adhere to eye-rolling stereotypes. The film also often uncomfortably plays up how effeminate they are for laughs (crying over broken fingernails). The team's lesbian coach comes off quite well though and has a pivotal role in an amusing comeuppance for a bigoted referee late into things.

Alright! Finished the '70s and '20s. Now I'm gonna move on to the '90s and '30s.
Image
10. La polizia brancola nel buio a.k.a. The Police Are Blundering in the Dark (Helia Colombo, 1975)
A guy investigating a series of murders and a missing friend meets up with a weirdo in a wheelchair that may or may not have something to do with the murders. And geez, this is an oddball movie. While it is slow in places, it has such an offbeat tone with bizarre non-sequitor scenes and weird plot devices that I was pretty engaged. When a movie uses a mad photographer who has a contraption that can take photos of the inside of people's minds as a casual side plot, you're in for something good. I know some are disappointed by its lack of gore and actual sex but it does feature copious amounts of nudity, much of the time for no reason like a woman stripping down to her underwear to eat a pastrami sandwich. Why? Who cares? I dug it.

Image
11. E tanta paura a.k.a. Plot of Fear (Paolo Cavara, 1976)
So the setup here is pretty standard giallo with folks gettin' murdered and a children's book being left at the scene of the crime as a clue to the killer's motive. Plot of Fear differs from the standard giallo though by incorporating elements of the Italian political thriller which was also popular in the '70s, building up the mystery into a broader conspiracy that gives it a different feel than many gialli I've seen. It's hard to say if this one is actively good on its own or if it just seems pretty good because it's trying something different though.

Image
12. La polizia è sconfitta a.k.a. Stunt Squad (Domenico Paolella, 1977)
If you expected a poliziotteschi called Stunt Squad to have good action sequences, you would be correct. The plot isn't super-deep with basically a special police task force on motorcycles put together to combat rampant gang violence. It keeps a brisk pace though and features a good main villain too.

Image
13. Enigma rosso a.k.a. Red Rings of Fear (Alberto Negrin, 1978)
Three teenagers calling themselves the Inseparables are at the center of a murder investigation of a teenage girl. Maybe it was the poor quality VHS transfer on the DVD I have of this but frankly I thought this was pretty dull and poorly directed for a lot of it. It's very heavy on the procedural element, the nadir of the giallo, and just feels very flat and uninspired with a needlessly convoluted script and an out-of-nowhere random ending. Still I guess if you just want to see some boobs and blood, it does have a little of both.

Image
14. Malabimba (Andrea Bianchi, 1979)
Uh hm.... Well, this one definitely doesn't hold back. Capitalizing off the post-Exorcist demon possession boom in Italy in the mid to late 70s, Malabimba features a nubile, virginal youth possessed by a demon which drives to more and more obscene sexual acts of debasement. Extremely sleazy and X-rated, you pretty much know what you're getting into from the director of Strip Nude for Your Killer and Burial Ground. Subtlety is not a word generally associated with Andrea Bianchi.

Image
15. The Bells (James Young, 1926)
Starring Lionel Barrymore with an early role from Boris Karloff, this was a decent effort about an innkeeper who murders one of his guests and is then tormented by Karloff's hypnotist. The directing felt a little uninspired, but the plot moved along briskly and Karloff showed his effortless intensity that he would develop so well in later films.

Image
16. The Thirteenth Hour (Chester M. Franklin, 1927)
A cracking detective played by Barrymore is on the trail of a thief and murderer. But is all as it seems? Eh, my suspension of disbelief was stretched to near breaking point here with a plot so convoluted and silly that it just came across stupid. And really while Barrymore receives top billing, Napoleon the Dog is the star of the show and the only character that shows any competence in this movie.

Image
17. The Last Warning (Paul Leni, 1928)
This was an interesting mix of Phantom of the Opera and an old dark house mystery about a musty old theater that is reopened by a slick producer who desires to put on a new production of a play from years earlier that was closed due to a tragedy that occurred on stage. But someone or something begins sending threats that may result in history repeating itself. The plotting here is a little clunky and unconvincing but Paul Leni is such a great director that he makes it all work anyway using a combination of various effects and camera tricks to liven things up and keep the proceedings fun. Definitely recommended if you are a fan of his Cat & The Canary. I got a very similar vibe from this one.

Image
18. The Mysterious Island (Benjamin Christensen/ Maurice Tourneur/Lucien Hubbard, 1929)
This hybrid of silent and talkie is based on the titular Jules Verne story about a submarine journey to a hidden land beneath the sea. The switching back and forth between intertitles and spoken dialogue makes it feel very awkward and a little disorienting at times, making me wish it had just stuck with silent intertitles for dialogue. Anyway once again we have Lionel Barrymore in the lead (man, he did a lot of genre pictures in the '20s, huh?) piloting his sub and frolicing amongst the denizens of the deep. Really, the main reason to watch this is for the charming FX work.

I think I'll be focusing mostly on the Italian challenge this month, but why not join this as well?

I'll be doing 1921-2021.

1. The Possessed (La Donna del Lago) (Bazzo, 1965).
2. The Soul (Ji Hun) (Cheng, 2021).
3. And Ideal Place to Kill (Un posto ideale per uccidere) (Lenzi, 1971).

My wife asked if we could watch "The Soul", it's on Netflix (US). Since she so rarely asks to see anything I of course obliged. I'm glad I did. It suffers a bit from some poor CGI, but the story is compelling and does a thing I love: It repeats sequences we've already seen, but the second time we see them we, as viewers, have new information that completely changes how the sequence is perceived. It's a little over two hours long, the build-up is a little slow and the climax isn't quite what I'd wish it to be, but the plot definitely delivers the goods!

Watched these yesterday but was too lazy to write up my notes so..

8. Why Change Your Wife? (1920) 5/10
A husband becomes bored of his nagging and frumpy wife and divorces her for a more exciting young woman but finds married life with her is not what he expected either. This film is eye-rollingly sexist and cringey, the 'humour' relying almost completely on gender and marriage stereotypes. There are some classic messages in this film such as 'clothes are for women to wear so they can delight their mate', 'ladies, make sure you keep yourself sexy so your husband stays interested in you'. The characters also didn't make much sense, I couldn't understand why the couple was together to begin with since they had nothing in common and I didn't think it was a 'happy' ending for them to get back together. The husband was just a douche who shouldn't be married to anyone and expects the wife to change for him. The fashion is kind of crazy and the actors do well with what little they have so the film is watchable, but its content has not aged well.

9. Schloß Vogelöd (1921) 4/10
A Count rumoured to have murdered a baroness' late husband interrupts a social gathering at Castle Vogelod determined to prove his innocence and reveal the true killer. The poster and the English title are so misleading because it seems like this is going to be a really stylish horror/thriller, but instead it is an overly talky and stylistically flat 'murder mystery'. It was a struggle to stay focused with its middling pace and lack of atmosphere. Everything is really by the numbers: characters, mystery, aesthetics and is just a snoozefest.

4. Soul Surfer (Sean McNamara-2011) USA 2,256 checks

Roger Ebert described this movie as having an "eerie optimism" and damn if he didn't nail it. For a movie about experiencing a disability and striving despite it, there is only the briefest of scenes of despair or discomfort. Even during the actual shark bite and subsequent recovery, she's just mutedly benign. Weird to read reviews praising lead AnnaSophia Robb for an amazing performance, it just

5. The Bedroom Window (Curtis Hanson-1987) USA 187 checks

Not a great thriller, but not a terrible one. Steve Guttenberg and Elizabeth McGovern go a decent job as the leads and there's a few great 80s character actors peppered in.

Ageless and immortal, four mercenaries take on the most dangerous of missions in this action movie based on a series of graphic novels. The premise is certainly fascinating enough but the film never really explores the weariness of having lived for centuries, while also dodging questions such whether they can regenerate severed limbs. There are some great actions bits though, and the film has a very nice portrayal of a gay romance that has lasted centuries.

Year Range: 1922 to 2021. Years covered already:
