Greatest films: <5 <10 & <25

#1

Post by St. Gloede » August 14th, 2019, 6:32 am

I was hoping to get this up before the nominations for the 500<400 thread rolled in. Clearly, I failed.

In this thread I would love it if we could honor films that are almost certainly not making the cut (or maybe they can with a little help from this thread), and share fantastic, small films.

For instance: Are there any great films you're sitting on where you are the sole checker? And what are your favorite low-check films in general? It can of course be <50 or <100 as well. Whatever you want to share.

My top 50 films with 5 or less checks:
https://www.imdb.com/list/ls048928398/

My top 100 films with 10 or less checks:
https://www.imdb.com/list/ls048981718/

My top 100 with 25 or less checks:
https://www.imdb.com/list/ls048983872/

I find each film on the above lists to be great, though of course, the quality scales up. What surprised me was just how strong my <25 list is. Over half the list are absolute favourites, and the rest are wonderful as well.

As for my first question: I only have 24 films where I am the sole checker, Out of this selection there are actually 4 I would recommend:

Nebyvalyj pohod
Magyar rekviem
Das Flötenkonzert von Sans-souci
Inge und die Millionen

Only the first is a film I am overly excited about, and none of favourites, I would however call them all great(ish).

Share, share, share!

This was way harder than I thought it would be to respond to, but I'll play.

Disclaimer: Everything I watch and rate an 8/10 or above, I put on my Favorites list. So for every poll, I submit the subset of films from that list that fit the focal criteria. This is no different; this is my list of favorite films that meet the OP criteria.

1-5 Checks:
Valentina (2017) (1 check): This is a 9-min short about a maid who suddenly discovers that her vagina can talk. In a short time, it's a great comment on both class and female struggles.
The Battle of Pussy Willow Creek (2010) (1 check): If you like Ken Burns, you'll love this parody. It's about a fictional US civil war battle with tons of humor and social commentary. Laughed my ass off during this.
Unseen (2016) (4 checks): A crime documentary about missing Black women in Cleveland and how police apathy let a serial killer operate. Brilliant look at racism in the community and police department.
His Majesty's Sergeant (1983) (4 checks): An Ghanaian film about British imperialism and their point of view. Dialogue heavy, but I probably learned more from this than almost any other African film.

6-10 Checks:
None, oddly.

11-25 Checks:
The Marina Experiment (2009) (11 Checks): Might be the creepiest thing I have ever seen. A doc short edited by a daughter who was OBSESSIVELY filmed by her father.
Lee's Adventure (2011) (16 Checks): An Onderhond recommendation, this blew me away. New and innovative and interesting, this did not have me guessing anything that happened.
Half the Picture (2018) (16 Checks): A conventional talking-heads doc about the lack of women's opportunities/access to high-level positions in film making. I didn't agree with everything they said, but DAMN am I glad they said it.
I Am Another You (2017) (18 Checks): Hard to describe - a doc about privilege and connection with other human beings, about compassion, and about mental illness. A rich and personal doc that surprises with its depth.

Oh, Honorable Mention:

Chatterbox! (1977) (32 Checks):

About a woman with a talking vagina. I put his on one morning expecting a sexploitation film. And it was - but it was WAY more than just that. It was actually a brilliant commentary about the exploitation of women and how they are valued little more than their private parts. Deliberately provocative, this definitely has a positive message.

8+ favourites certainly makes this a lot easier. You just have to rank your favourites by checks. And that is a quick way for everyone to do this, if you want to share the top of the crop.

What I did was sort my check history by checks and go through it. But that's also part of why it took a bit of time to get this done.

there are about 2000 checks to go through when I select 25 checks or less on my checked movies. There are fun recommendations amongst them like many Indonesian horror and action flics, a lot of films from the Barcelona school, films by Yefgeni Yufit, Cao Guimaraes or Margueritte Duras. The very best I selected in the list I made for the 500<400 polls, but sometimes I also left them out on purpose because there is no chance to actually get support (how many people will ever be able to see a masterpiece like River of Fundament now for instance? because of it's special status as an 'art piece' it is bound for obscurity).

Not really looking at my ratings, just from memory, I made a selection of movies from these ~2000 that I would recommend (but availability might be an issue for most)

Great topic, but I only have 46 movies I've seen with 25 checks or less. Of these, 8 are on my 500<400 list:

Mi Vida con Carlos - 5 checks
A very sad doc about a man dealing with the trauma of his father's murder by the Pinochet regime.

Pasacek z Doliny - 5 checks
Frantisek Vlacil is a fairly well-known director in these parts, but this movie, made towards the end of his career, is virtually forgotten. It's the story of a small child's experience of Czech village life in the late 1940s, with conflict between the communist government and partisans in the background.

Escapade - 7 checks
A nice drama about a mystery at an English boarding school. A group of students go missing, and the result has geopolitical implications. Available on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aaWhHdDVk5A

Das Beil von Wandsbek - 9 checks
A fascinating East German movie about early Nazi-era Hamburg that was quickly banned in East Germany.

Soldiers in Hiding - 10 checks
A heartrending doc about Vietnam veterans on the margins of society.

The True Meaning of Pictures: Shelby Lee Adams' Appalachia - 14 checks
An excellent doc about a photographer by Jennifer Baichwal, better known for her doc about Edward Burtynsky.

El Lugar Mas Pequeno - 18 checks
A doc about the massacre of a Salvadoran village during the Civil War.

Achtung! Banditi! - 25 checks
Italian WWII partisan drama.

In addition, when they're eligible next year, I'll add the following two movies to my list:

Afterward - 1 check
My mother's movie about trauma, the Holocaust, memory, Palestine, and Israel.

The World Before Your Feet - 11 checks
Doc about a man who walks every block in New York City.

These two are also on my 500<400 ballot. Everybody should see these films. They are easy to locate too.

Oh, Honorable Mention:

Chatterbox! (1977) (32 Checks):

About a woman with a talking vagina. I put his on one morning expecting a sexploitation film. And it was - but it was WAY more than just that. It was actually a brilliant commentary about the exploitation of women and how they are valued little more than their private parts. Deliberately provocative, this definitely has a positive message.
Any other talking genital movies you've seen? :D
Just Valentina and Chatterbox! off the top of my head (and pretty much any political documentary, but that's a separate story). Honorable mention to Ace Ventura for talking out of his ass. And if you want to include nonverbal communication, Teeth and Dickshark might count... :P

I really hadn't expected this many responses, amazing!

There are so many interesting films above, and I love that we actually have many overlaps, some of my top picks from above are below.

(Not all great films listed)

One fantastic thing is that

À l'ombre de la canaille bleue / In the Shadow of the Blue Rascal
and
Egy erkölcsös éjszaka / A Very Moral Night

are actually mentioned twice, which means they will likely get at least 3 votes in the upcoming poll.

Asian TV (other than anime) gets completely ignored by iCM users, so even the best and most popular ones only have a few checks on iCM.

I have 691 checks with 4 or less other checks. I don’t check TV though, apart from a couple of exceptions. Many many great films in that number, including many all time favourites with only one check.

Cool topic, but the lists presented are far too long given the title of the thread. We are talking about the "greatest," not every movie one can think of that was likable, right?

Here are mine (most, if not all are on my 500<400 submission)

<5 :
Hija Unica (2016, Argentina)- I just cited this unique film in the 2016 poll. If you like films that explore dreams, memory, and multiple identities, this one might be for you.Netflix?

A Festa De Margarette (2003, Brazil)- A black and white, surreal silent comedy that I saw as part of a Global Lens festival (all their films are streamable on amazon prime)

HM-
Bitter Flowers (2017, France / China)- The dark side of trying to work abroad in order to better one's life. Well done, and available on prime
Chaika (2012, Russia / Spain)- A free spirited woman unravels a family. Highlighted by outstanding cinematography on the Stepps.

<10 :
Lea (1996 (Czech / German)- Brutal love story with some very memorable imagery (multiple prize winner, as well)

La Sangre Brota (2008, Argentina)- Another very interesting, unpredictable Argentine film that skirts being a crime or family drama

<25 :
Frozen ( Shivajee Chandrabhushan, India, 2007)- My favorite of all my choices. Stunning B & W cinematography, and a story that is not quite what it seems

Violent (2014, Norway / Canada)- Another film with an intriguing narrative (and multiple prize winner) and very good cinematography. Saw it on Netflix

Vazante (2017, Brazil)- Outstanding, gorgeous B & W drama about rural, colonial Brazil. Available on prime

Kargaran mashghoole karand (2006, Iran)- Great script by Kiarostami that functions both as a political allegory and exploration of gender in Iran. Available on prime

HM-
Fuori dal mondo (1999, Italy)- underrated filmmaker from Italy who works small intimate stories for everything they're worth.
Priyatel pokoynika (1997, Russia)- black comic drama about life in Russia after Glasnost, and a guy who takes out a contract on himself
Sheng si jie (2006, China), Guo Chun Tian (2018, China), Ba Yue (2016, China)- 3 very good slice of life stories about life in modern China
Eno nakano bokuno mura (1996)- twin brothers grow up in rural Japan during the war
Three Dollars (2005)- pretty good Aussie drama about a guy who hits rock bottom and learns what he needs to as he climbs back up
Sammy Going South (A Boy Ten Feet Tall, 1963)- one I remember watching in my own childhood about a boy who travels across Africa. Alexander MacKendrick directs.

What's the boundary between greatest, great and likable? I vote for and posted movies that I think deserve more watchers.

I do agree with you though, that the lists are too long. I scrolled over most of this without even reading the titles. It's just a random list of titles to me. If my list was longer, I would have cut it. If I really wanted to spend time on promoting my post, I would have written something about each movie and added a screenshot. But I guess other things I'm doing to today are more important to me.

Your list is a reasonable length, and I will investigate them. If I have time, I will expand on mine and provide some info as outdoorcats did.

Taken from my top 500, all feature length films. That's a good 30% of my favorite films that can't even reach 50 checks on ICM. A bit surprised the number is that high.
First 10 are selected with the ICM Forum in mind (ie more arthouse-leaning), the rest is simply ordered by check count.


Image

001. Luan qing chun
2008 — a.k.a. Beautiful Crazy, in 0 top lists
In a sense Beautiful Crazy still carries all the typical marks of the older Taiwanese dramas, but rearranged and remixed in such a way that it feels like a breath of fresh air.


Image

002. Di si zhang hua
2010 — a.k.a. The Fourth Portrait, in 0 top lists
Powerful, poetic, lush, atmospheric and ultimately gripping. It's not unique or wildly different, but a perfect execution of a popular genre, lifting the film far above the competition.


Image

003. Chang jiang tu
2016 — a.k.a. Crosscurrent, in 0 top lists
Once the film has you in its grip, the pay-off is grand. Lush visuals, captivating soundscapes and solid acting make for a brooding, dense and enveloping experience.


Image

004. Yawarakai seikatsu
2005 — a.k.a. It's Only Talk, in 1 top list
Hiroki delivers one of the most natural, confident and empathic dramas I've ever laid eyes on. On the outside it appears to be a simple film, but underneath lies a wealth of emotions


Image

005. Kyôshin
2006 — a.k.a. Mirrored Mind, in 0 top lists
A perfect score and absolutely stunning visuals transport you to a different world, only to let go of you 60 minutes later, comforted and touched by the film's protagonist's struggle.


Image

006. Watashi no otoko
2014 — a.k.a. My Man, in 0 top lists
With a superb soundtrack, two killer leads and some visual punch he delivers a film that has the power to linger. That is, if you can stomach what Kumakiri has to show.


Image

007. Hetun
2011 — a.k.a. Blowfish, in 0 top lists
I loved the film from start to finish, glad to once again meet a (mostly) silent couple that lives through the film without too many conversations or direct outbursts of emotions.


Image

008. Ihatôbu gensô, Kenji no haru
1996, in 0 top lists
Kawamori presents a worthy and classy tribute to the genius of Miyazawa, a film that may not be your average biography, but is much better because of it.


Image

009. Soko nomi nite hikari kagayaku
2014 — a.k.a. The Light Shines Only There, in 0 top lists
The result is a strong, remarkable drama with no weak points and a few stand-out scenes that linger long after the end credits have faded from the screen.


Image

010. Mizu no onna
2002 — a.k.a. Woman of Water, in 0 top lists
The mix of drama and mystery is brilliantly executed. The symbolism might lack subtlety, but Sugimori goes a long way in compensating that with strong imagery that will burn itself deep in your mind.

Cool topic, but the lists presented are far too long given the title of the thread. We are talking about the "greatest," not every movie one can think of that was likable, right?
I don't think your assessment is correct. I only listed great films, and also excluded great films from all 3 of my lists (which I believe are the longest here, and likely what you are referring to). If I wanted to include other great, really good and even just likeable films the <25 list would have likely been a mindless blob of 500+ films.

I get your point though, that in terms of clear, direct recommendations a smaller selection would have been preferable. My lists are ranked, so it is easy to place a cut-off point. In terms of what I would classify as all-time favourites it would be (absolutely wonderful in parenthesis):

<5 - Top 6 (Top Top 23)
<10 - Top 17 (Top 56)
<25 - Top 53 (All)

-

In terms of my intent creating this thread, as long as everybody lists what they view as the top of the crop I am happy with it.

The way I use the lists is to skim for what stands out, so the more great films recommended the better.

My list is pretty long, but all are taken from my top 6% films. I think that's well above the "likeable" line.
Adding a pic/small text for each film would've been a bit too much work, hence why I singled out some ICM-forum-proof film at the top.

Great job adding screenshots Onderhond, I like the idea of adding comments, but would take too long. I might filter out a few I think have a chance to get picked up as well.

I have < 200 letter summaries for all the films listed, but I'm not going to manually copy 150 of them, so I just did it for the highlighted ones.

Would be a lot easier if I could import the check counts in my own blog, so I could use those to filter/generate lists there instead of doing it by hand. Does anyone know if ICM has an API for that kind of thing (can't immediately find it on the website)?

some at 6-10 checks
*Nasty Habits 1977 (Watergate allegory with Glenda Jackson as a corrupt Mother Superior...come on!)
Negatives 1968 (Glenda Jackson again)
Seen both of these - and I'm pretty sure that I have both on VHS somewhere. And yes, Nasty Habits rocks! B)

11-25 checks:
Bäckerei Zürrer (1957)
Citadel (2006)
Still waiting for these two to become available to me. :(
Oh, do you still need subs on Zürrer? Totally forgotten about that. I would have the time to do them.

Citadel I‘ve seen in Cinema a few years ago, no idea where to get it.

Standard german subtitles wouldn't help you, right?

Yes, I got overwhelmed by how to correctly use subtitle formats. I'll do a simple txt file with time stamps (like you sometimes see as comments on foreign shorts on icm), would that be ok?

What do you mean with "standard German subs"? Are there German softsubs available? If so, then it's better to translate those instead of giving a translation in Word with rough timestamps. But I'd settle for anything.

I do have a DVD of Zürrer somewhere in the cellar that does have German soft subs (but they aren't on the web). But I wouldn't know how to extract them, I don't even have DVD player on of my computer. Even if I could rip it, I would have IFO, BUP and VOB files and wouldn't know what to do with them.

I already started doing the subs but I'm only 5 minutes into the movie, but if someone could get the german subtitles out of the DVD, it would be no problem to restart, I could simply copy paste the the already translated text. In the meantime I carry on.

I'll see if I can get the DVD somewhere, so I might extract the subs.
