Week 4 Fun Stats

These stats are accurate as of 6:30am GMT on 29/01/19. My apologies if you have posted an update after this point; your viewings will be included in the next lot of statistics. :)

For reference: Week 1 Fun Stats // Week 2 Fun Stats // Week 3 Fun Stats

We are steady at 27 participants (same as last week) and we have collectively watched more than 390 films - including over 260 unique titles.

Oscar Predictions

While the average film buff out there is tossing up whether Green Book can still win the Best Picture Oscar without a Directing nomination, here on the iCM Forum, everyone is rather keeping track of who will become the top 5 finishers (Oscar nominees) in maxwelldeux's Challenge Olympics.

The race is pretty similar to this time last week with sol, tourdesb and Traveller coming first, second and third respectively. The big surprise is albajos making quite a quiet comeback, overtaking JeroenO for 4th spot... but can he watch enough over the next three days to secure an upset win? And will JeroenO still earn an Oscar nomination for this Challenge in the process? There is more than 10 films separating 5th and 6th spot, but Coryn is big into marathon watching, so he could sneak up. And what about the Invisible Man participants? Still no word from Roger yet, and we have no idea if anyone else is planning to post a large lot of titles at the last minute in order to sneak into the top 5. Let's see how the remaining two and a bit days of the month play out!

Love the updates on the stats!

I discovered this forum at the end of December and kept track of my watches since January. I'm currently at 41, keep in mind before this I watched 5 - 10 movies à month. For the first 17 days of this month I had no internet either and watched the films I had left on blu ray or hard drive.

So happy I found out about this forum!

Oh wow; I wasn't expecting you to bow out so soon with more than two days left to go, but I assume you're investing your film watches in the other Challenges. Good luck there!

Gee, participants are dropping like flies today. :turned: But yeah, read what you said about that film festival earlier on so I understand that time might not be on your side. That sure does sound like an appropriate title to finish off on (I had that one lined up to watch myself, but time's short for me too, so it's too late, blues).

I Know Where I'm Going! is my favourite P+P feature. Lovely black and white photography and an engaging look at a character who thinks that she knows where she is going in life... until she gets there.

Heheh; I would have averaged around 41 films a month in years before discovering this forum. I probably average around 60 a month these days, though my view-count does increase in December and January.

And glad to hear that you are enjoying the weekly stats. They take about 45 minute to compile since I am sorting the data manually (it would have been even longer if I managed to successfully import the list into iCM) but I don't mind putting the effort in if others like the stats and they're being read. :D

It's a feeling I'm vaguely familiar with regarding early career choices. And yeah - some gorgeous scenery in there which made it quite engaging.

As always, thanks for the stats, sol. This will probably be my last film for this challenge, too.

53. Tikhie stranitsy (1994) - 7/10
Already best described by sol two pages earlier, I can understand his sentiments towards the dullness of its character and runtime. However, like with every Sokurov film I’ve seen so far, I find myself pulled in by its style and captivating atmosphere again and again – in fact, the aimless wandering of the character and its dullness are what brought me to the film in the first place, and the entertainment for me lies in its only possible representation. In that, it did well. Yet - again as with every film by Sokurov - I feel like something is missing for me, something that would close the distance to its character.

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!

Image

Blurring the lines between fiction and documentary a la I Dalio, this pseudo-autobiography stars Mary Beth Hurt as Jean Seberg narrating her career and life with images from her films in the background. What makes the movie so dynamic is the way it supposes what Seberg might have made of 1980s and 90s movie trends, and how her career might have mirrored that of Jane Fonda or Vanessa Redgrave, yet "I missed all that because I was dead at age 40". This is not, however, a very focused affair as Hurt tends to ramble on about other actors/actresses too.

Great pre-code comedy. I have only seen Carole Lombard in a few movies, but I've thought she is excellent in everything I've seen. Lionel Barrymore really reminds me of Gene Wilder.

I absolutely loved the first episode of this miniseries with its preteen protagonist caught in a time loop of sorts, lasting several years, with him repeatedly trying to coach younger versions of himself on what to say and do in life after meeting him. There is some dark humour in here as some advice leads to the death of his father, other to the death of his mother, other to getting wealthy, other to getting punished and so on. I found the last two episodes far less engaging though. The second one does introduce an interesting supporting character in a girl child prodigy, apparently deliberately created through science and her boyfriend to-be who has the transplanted brain of an adult man or something. She is not really fully fleshed out until the third episode and when she is, it leaves far more questions than answers. I'm not sure if I understand anything at all in the third episode. So yeah, loved the mood of the project, colour-code shots, sci-fi ideas and child performances, but - most of all - the miniseries left me wondering what the hell I just watched.

9. Vesyolye rebyata / Jolly Fellows / Moscow Laughs (Grigoriy Aleksandrov, 1934)
10. In a Lonely Place (Nicholas Ray, 1950) (re-watch)

TCM with Eddie Mueller intro - how could I not watch this when he announced that it's his all-time favorite film? And it was one I'd been meaning to check out again anyway. I think I first saw this around 2006 or so, near the point when I really got taken in by noir - as a matter of fact, the film shown just before this, Act of Violence, is really the film that got me hooked, and I'll have more to say about that in next week's weekly thread. This one - perhaps its because as Mueller suggests, it isn't really anything like an archetypal noir - it's much more invested in the characters than in the crime elements - doesn't quite hit the peak for me, still, though I did get more into it this time than I did a dozen or so years ago, and with Gloria Grahame and Bogart both near their peaks, what's not to like? Nothing - it's just that there are things that still don't work perfectly for me, principally Bogart's character who is soooo violent and moody that it sort of beggars belief that he'd have ANY friends or work anymore, unless he were absolutely at the peak of the profession, which he doesn't seem to be. And the whole car / beat down episode rings a little too much for me I guess. These are minor quibbles, its still a pretty great film, just not for me in that realm of best-ever candidates.

11. SHORTS II 31 + 34 = 65 minutes
a) A Burlesque on Carmen (Charles Chaplin, 1915) - Chaplin's take on Carmen offers more pathos than usual this early in his career, and one of the best comic fight sequences he ever filmed. I don't get the brilliance that JR or some others see I guess, after one viewing, but then I rarely do with his shorts - I go to Keaton for brilliance in the 10-30 minute range usually. I dunno, there's just less excitement in his mise en scene or something. But it's still fun, and I personally loved the finale.
b) Get Out of the Car (Thom Andersen, 2010) - Andersen investigates vanished and vanishing Los Angeles in the form of signage and disappearing businesses, especially focusing on the Hispanic influence on the city, which from this reportage would seem to be diminishing as well. Interesting as always but I suppose I don't find this quite as compelling as most of his other work that I've seen, at least not yet. I think I need to do a whole day of Thom Andersen sometime soon though.

12. SHORTS III PETER THOMPSON 23 + 21 + 20 = 64 minutes

a/b) Two Portraits (Anything Else + Shooting Scripts) (1982) - I'm not sure why this first diptych is run together on IMDb/ICM - its two separate but linked films, just like the next two, but in any case this is fascinating but I think not as interesting as a "film" as it might be as a "diary" or document of lives; that is, while the stop-frame technique showing the father while Thompson describes his life as a series of numbers and dates is attractive in a way, it's not exactly "cinematic", nor is the nearly motionless view of his mother while her offscreen voice reads from her diary particularly interesting as cinema either - it's the words, and the thinking about the two afterwards, and during the second part, that make it something more than just dry-ish recitations. I don't know, that doesn't say much, I don't know how to express it well. It's something to get used to with more of the director's work and more viewings I guess, not sure what to make of it.
c/d) Universal Hotel + Universal Citizen (1986/7) - these were more interesting and "dynamic" if that's the right word, more "cinematic" if still quite essayistic and dry at times. The first film is mostly an examination of research into hypothermia conducted by Nazi doctors at Dachau, while the second involves an interaction between Thompson and his wife with a Jewish Dachau survivor now living in Guatemala with his adopted child. On the surface these are both in a sense travelogues - since Thompson went to Europe to investigate the medical experiments in the first part - but there is an awful lot more to them, dealing with the nature of memory and the nature of identity - the "universal" element certainly, as each "character" - Thomspon, his wife, the Nazis, their victims, the Universal Citizen who is the main focus of the second film, etc - each display multiple identities, each have multiple roles to play in the complex world of these very short films. Again, like the first diptych, fairly simple on the surface, but with much to explore further, and I feel that I am inadequate to the task of really getting at what makes these interesting and special just yet.

I've seen the shortest, and 2 of the 4 longest.
Usually nothing special with that, but watching a 4 hour movie as a break from watching 200+ Sci-Fi/Fantasy-movies is weird even for me.

I'm pretty sure this should count for multiple points but I'm not the person running this thing. It's definitely episodic.

From what I understand (going on my memories when this was an issue in the past), some episodes are 40+mins and qualify for points on their own, while other episodes are too short. If Denney wants to recalculate the score himself - and post an update - I will happily adjust his total, but I don't have enough spare time to chase this down myself.

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!

Ebert? Fuck that shit. Jonathan Rosenbaum!Show
1. Aerograd (Aleksandr Dovzhenko, 1935)
2. Entuziazm (Simfoniya Donbassa) / Enthusiasm (Dziga Vertov, 1931)
3. Matinee (Joe Dante, 1993) (re-watch)
4. Ivan (Aleksandr Dovzhenko, 1932)
5. Dishonored (Josef von Sternberg, 1931)
6. Thunderbolt (Josef von sternberg, 1929)
7. Velikiy uteshitel / The Great Consoler (Lev Kuleshov, 1933)

8. SHORTS 36 + 10 + 15 = 61 minutes
a) The Metaphor (King Vidor, 1980)
b) Lmno (Robert Breer, 1978)
c) Essai d'ouverture (Luc Moullet, 1988)

9. Vesyolye rebyata / Jolly Fellows / Moscow Laughs (Grigoriy Aleksandrov, 1934)
10. In a Lonely Place (Nicholas Ray, 1950) (re-watch)

11. SHORTS II 31 + 34 = 65 minutes
a) A Burlesque on Carmen (Charles Chaplin, 1915)
b) Get Out of the Car (Thom Andersen, 2010)

12. SHORTS III PETER THOMPSON 23 + 21 + 20 = 64 minutes

a/b) Two Portraits (Anything Else + Shooting Scripts) (1982)
c/d) Universal Hotel + Universal Citizen (1986/7)
13. SHORTS IV 13 + 17 + 36 = 66 minutes
a) Kivski Freski (Sergei Parajanov, 1966) - hard to say much about this, fragments of work Parajanov was doing for several different films, among them it seems Sayat Nova, but also stuff that was quite unfamiliar, some of it more "modern" and rather avant-garde. Interesting, but it would take more viewings and probably a better copy (the colors in particular, very washed out here) to say more.
b) Noviciat (Noël Burch, 1965) - sort of a feminist - S&M fantasy about a peeping tom watching a group of female martial artists train, until he gets captured by them and made their slave. At first he's just a punching bag for them but later the (literal) boot-licking begins. Reminds me in some ways of Rivette, in particular Noroît, in the sense of it being a female-empowerment portrait linked to fetishism and possibly lesbianism with a vague aura of surrealism. Very enjoyable, beyond that I'm not sure...
c) Phillips-Radio (Joris Ivens, 1931) - typically brilliant Ivens industrial film, showing the process of making radios at the Philips factory in the Netherlands. Poetic and beautifully put together, showing the start-to-finish process from the point when raw materials are brought into the factory to when the finished products are sent out; one gets a sense of real quality control here, of a product made the best it can be - whether that represents the reality of the company at the time is another matter.

14. Vinyl (Andy Warhol, 1965)

I've seen very little from Warhol, and after watching this and Blow Job yesterday I'm not necessarily interested in exploring more of his canon - Official Checks or no. I don't think it''s that I can't appreciate amateur film-making, or deliberately transgressive work, or the 60s milieu, or anything like that - I love the two Jack Smith films I've seen for example - but Warhol, in this film in particular, pretty much leaves me cold. Looking at Edie Sedgwick, sitting on the right edge of the screen smoking for an hour was the most enjoyable aspect here, though I guess there are other moments too - the sort of asexuality of both Sedgwick and the bondage/S&M elements contrast interestingly with the only really lively parts, when Gerard Malanga is dancing like crazy to "Nowhere to Run"; pop music is a lot more exciting than sex, apparently - or perhaps pop music IS sex. Anyway, not worthless but not much else either.

15. The Wishing Ring: An Idyll of Old England (Maurice Tourneur, 1914)

Charming but ultimately not terribly memorable romantic comedy with a fairly typical basic plot - good-for-nothing son of rich guy is thrown out of school, has to show his father that he's worth something before he can rejoin the family, goes to work and falls in love with kindhearted girl who decides to try to reconcile the family. The girl (Vivian Martin) is a bit more resourceful and aggressive than usual in a film of this era, and I especially liked the scene where she first goes to the old man and essentially pushes all the servants away - that's right, the women are smarter.

16. SHORTS V 38 + 22 = 60 minutes
a) The Deadman (Peggy Ahwesh/Keith Sanborn, 1987) A dead naked man on a bed, and a woman, naked but for a thin see-through coat runs away in the rain to a bar, where she proceeds to engage in various sexual acts with the barkeep and various patrons, before leaving with "the count". More sex, peeing, vomiting, death. Oh, it's black and white, and there are titles as in a silent film - and occasional narration - and sound that is sometimes direct and sometimes synched - or unsynched - I think. What seems to be at times just an overtly transgressive piece of porn has a lot more going on underneath, and the way in which the soundtrack and titles interact and reflect on each other is a bit part of it, though I would also note that if you turned the sound off and skipped the titles, you would essentially get the "story" without much trouble. Very strange and sometimes repellent but interesting - not sure I liked it, or that like has much meaning here, but I guess I'm glad I watched it - once.
b) Kramasha / To Be Continued (Amit Dutta, 2007) - A beautiful musing on place and family, with a poetic and at times quite obscure narration as we see images of a semi-ruined house, or maybe mansion would be a better word, and a family that lived there. The narration rarely stops and there's a huge amount of information given, which doesn't always seem pertinent to what we're seeing, and it's fairly exhausting intellectually - Ruiz' Colloque de chiens, which is exactly the same length, came to mind as a reference in terms of the density of material, though completely different in every other way. Really quite stunning and something I'll probably watch again soon just to take in more.

And that last is my 850th check on the list which puts me at silver. Next stop gold - in a few years.

Hi sol! I re-watched a few favourite classics at the very outset of January and neglected to post them here after coming down with a cold. I caught one or two more as the month reached its conclusion. My challenge never really spluttered into life, unfortunately. I liked pretty much everything that I saw though...

1. 'Zemlya' / 'Earth' / 1930, Aleksandr Dovzhenko / 10/10 / #103
2. 'Twentieth Century' / 1934, Howard Hawks / 9/10 / #161
3. 'The Long Voyage Home' / 1940, John Ford / 8.5/10 / #199
4. 'Heaven Can Wait' / 1943, Ernst Lubitsch / 10/10 / #222
5. 'Pandora and the Flying Dutchman' / 1951, Albert Lewin / 9.5/10 / #319
6. 'Forbidden Planet' / 1956, Fred M. Wilcox / 10/10 / #404
7. 'The Shooting' / 1966, Monte Hellman / 8/10 / #561

Thanks for hosting!

:cheers:
That's all, folks!

:circle: :circle: :clap: RESULTS :clap: :circle: :circle:

It's now February 3 where I live and it is four hours into February 2 everywhere in the world, so without further ado, here are our final results.

Full results are up-to-date in the OP. For the moment though, I am going to concentrate on our top 20 participants are add some extra info.

Between all of us, we collected 467 points in this Challenge. I'm adding an extra Percentage column which indicates what percent of this 467 was achieved by each of our top 20 participants. I am also adding in an Aerograd column since it was by far and away the most watched film in the Challenge. Order refers to the order in which the film was watched (who was copycatting who?). And in case you're wondering, the third viewer was Knalds, who came #21 in the Challenge.

Which participants in this Challenge are ranked inside the top 200 users on the JR Essentials list?

Sorry, I didn't have time to investigate this for everyone and I know that some of us have wildly different iCM handles, but from what I can work out:

#2 - allisoncm
#12 - tourdesb
#31 - OldAle1
#103 - RBG
#105 - weirdboy
#126 - cinephage
#141 - flavo5000
#149 - 3eyes
#158 - mightysparks
#162 - Knaldskalle
#180 - Traveller

Sincere apologies if I left anyone off. And I think jeroeno is still in the dark side?

Want more stats? This is how we progressed:

Week 1 -- Week 2 -- Week 3 -- Week 4

Many thanks to all the participants! See you on the February Challenge threads.

Thanks for hosting and those nice stats sol.

p.s. I'm not on the rankings anymore but with 938 checks I would've ranked #17 on the official list.

Yes, thanks for hosting sol. The JR list is one of the few I think about actively working on, but never really do and this was a nice excuse, wish I'd focused on it more and had more time. I may end up watching several more this month that coincide with the challenges, particularly the 30s. You must have jumped up quite a bit in rank on it yourself.
