37.1. STEKLYANNAYA GARMONIKA (Khrzhannovskiy, 1968) — Cutout animation, monsters, surrealism, expressionist architecture, classical painting (including Brueghel or Arcimboldo) and the music of Alfred Schnittke put together with great skill in order to satirise the "boundless greed, police terror, isolation and brutalisation of humans in modern bourgeois society" (or the Soviet bureaucracy according to others) as opposed to the "high thoughts and fine actions" inspired by the magical musical instrument built by a craftsman (arts?). 10/10

Image

37.2. MU DI (Te, Qian, 1963) — A boy with a bamboo flute and his buffalo wander through bucolic landscapes, mountains, rivers, cranes and trees are rendered in the Chinese traditional painting style (ink stains apparently unrefined) and accompanied by Chinese classical music, a little known gem in animation. 8/10

Image

37.3. BALERINA NA KORABLE (Atamanov, 1969) — A ballet for a female dancer and baffled crew on (and over) the deck of a sailing ship with music of Alfred Schnittke again, simple but nice. 7/10

Image

37.4. PINK PAJAMAS (Freleng, Pratt, 1964) — How could I forget one of my favourite cartoons? 8/10

38. DOKTOR GLAS (Zetterling, 1968) — I expected a sex comedy after reading the synopsis (my enthusiasm for Italian cinema...), instead I found a serious introspection that delves into the nightmares, sexual fantasies, ethical concerns (euthanasia, suicide, abortion), phobias or unhappiness of a respected physician in 19th-century Stockholm, interesting but a bit depressing. 5/10 *

This features some decent wire-fu work, especially in a zany bit in which one man pushes an opponent into the ground while hanging in the air. There are some eye-popping torture methods too involving darts and spiked closing walls. The plot is, however, too complex for its own good, which leads to this being far heavier on dialogue than action. The film also carries for so long after its climactic battle that the whole thing feels like a soap opera ep.

Saw a lot of great stuff this month, but my top FTV for this challenge= The Connection (1961)
So I never see anyone mention this, but I think The Connection may actually be the first found footage film. I know Cannibal Holocaust always seems to get credited as the first but The Connection beat it by over a decade. Maybe it gets forgotten because it isn't horror?

That's pretty cool... the ff angle must come from the title card at the beginning and the fact that some of the actors are playing characters who are playing characters (the "director" e.g.). Has that Eddie Adams- Dirk Diggler thing going for it a little bit. Apparently the stage play it's based on was even more effective with regards to ff. I read that some audience members thought the actors were actually injecting heroin on stage at the time the play was performed off Broadway. Then, reading further (mostly about Carl Lee), maybe some of them were.... :unsure:

That's it for me! Thanks again for hosting, Lilarcor, I could be stuck in the 60s forever!!! I appreciated all the statistics, and if I had more time I would certainly visit a few more countries I had lined up (Argentina, Mexico, Chile, Brazil, Norway, Finland, Philippines, South Korea, Macedonia, Greece, Ukraine, Latvia, Estonia, or Thailand (with a title from... 1961!)). So many discoveries, so much fun! :cheers:

(Oh, without seeing that Israeli entry, and despite a most impressive selection, I think I would give my Cannes awards to the Hungarians - the Palme to Jancsó's 'Csillagosok, katonák', the Grand Prix to Sára's 'Feldobott kö', both fit the times and the socio-political-cultural particulars of the 1968 Festival itself; they would definitely resonate with the Jury -, and I'm quite sure the Best Actress/Actor awards would have gone to Lisa Gastoni/Lou Castel for 'Samperi's explosive 'Grazie zia'.)

There is a surprisingly large amount of graphic bloodletting on display here - and right from the pre-credits scene in which a fighter chops off his own arm to prevent poison spreading! Stomach wounds also lead to fountains of blood here, while there is such zaniness as the lead actress karate chopping down whole trees in anger and whacking away giant spinning discs thrown at her in between dodging darts. Good dart action too as one might expect.

And on that positive note, that's it for me this month. Thanks for hosting, Lilarcor. Really enjoyed all of the regularly updated stats.

39. YUKE YUKE NIDOME NO SHOJO (Wakamatsu, 1969) — Sex and death, singular, disturbing, stylish and dismal, it's difficult for me to describe the bizarre lyricism in the vision of the two dysfunctional teenagers that spend their hours on a roof possibly looking for a way out of their sexual traumas. 7/10

3. Qian jiao bai mei / Les Belles (Ching Doe, 1961)

8. Hu di bei / The Butterfly Chalice (Cheh Chang/Chiu Feng Yuan, 1965)
9. Bian cheng san xia / The Magnificent Trio (Cheh Chang, 1966)
10. Tie shan gong zhu / Princess Iron Fan (Meng Hua Ho, 1966)
11. Jin pu sa / The Golden Buddha (Wei Lo, 1966)

I think every country in the world that had any kind of significant cinema was making spy movies by 1966; the enormous worldwide success of the first few Bond films caused everybody to jump on the bandwagon - here was a genre where you could have action, excitement, chases, mystery, international intrigue, and of course beautiful women, and even developing economies with smaller budgets for film like Iran, Egypt, Turkey and Mexico made Bond rip-offs in the late 60s. So it's no surprise that a big producer like Hong Kong would have some though this is the first one I've gotten to. It's...all right. It's not precisely Bond-like, in that our main protagonist isn't actually a spy - he just gets involved in this big crime story by accident, when he gets the wrong briefcase off an airplane. Turns out he has the golden Buddha - or rather one of three golden Buddhas, and there's a secret code to find a huge treasure that you need all three Buddhas to figure out. Chases, murders, mistaken identities, and a couple of beautiful girls follow at a fairly madcap pace. The one element here that is really Bond-like is the supervillain in his underground lair with all his uniformed killers, but the guy's only desire seems to be for money, not the world control that Dr. No or Goldfinger were after. He does however have one of the most ridiculous costumes you'll ever see in a (supposedly) serious spy flick

Image

All in all this is just OK, as are frankly most of the Eurospy flicks coming mostly from Italy in this period. I enjoy these things but the production values are often low and they have to cram in too much stuff to make sure you get your money's worth, and the end result is often fairly tepid as it is here. Action is just so-so, though there is some good Thai location work, and the music often sounds like Elmer Bernstein in his Magnificent Seven mode.

12. Yun hai yu gong yuan / The Jade Bow (Hsin-Yen Chang/Qi Fu, 1966)

A more straightforward martial arts film, but NOT Shaw Brothers, and not in Cinemascope - at least not the YouTube copy I watched, which certainly didn't look heavily cropped. This is overall a pretty solid revenge saga in which women are the major characters, or at least the equals of the male protagonists. Two young women are raised by in rival martial arts traditions by the leaders of the schools, who hate each other, but one has a mysterious past; thinking her father dead, it turns out he's really... but that would be a spoiler. And there's also a love triangle at play here, as both young women fall for the same warrior; and a cool underground lair that one of the leaders stays in after his group is all but destroyed, and his life is bountry - the lair actually is reminiscent of a Bond-type lair (see the previous film) but it works fine here. Pretty solid action overall and again some interesting music choices - this has more the feel of earlier classic Hollywood (Korngold, Steiner etc) in it's music and to some extent in it's storytelling.

13. Da ci ke / The Assassin (Cheh Chang, 1967)

Set over 2000 years ago, at the moment when the Bronze Age of sword-making was leading into the Iron and Steel period (this is mentioned a couple of times in the film), this is another revenge story in which a young man grows up after seeing his master and most of his fellow students butchered by a warlord, to eventually seek vengeance with the help of a similarly wronged man. A really good initial half-hour with a couple of good fight sequences, and an excellent last half hour with a terrific long one-against-100 battle, separated unfortunately by a full hour of really drawn-out discussions on honor, the role of the warrior, the role of the man as the head of his family, etc, etc. This has a very personal feeling to it - it really seems like Chang (who co-wrote the screenplay) was working out some of his ideas of these roles and issues such as whether one should give up one's life for a cause, what brotherhood means, etc, and it's all fairly well conveyed, but unfortunately it also feels pretty labored and it just makes the film drag until you get to that spectacular ending. Jimmy Wang Yu as our hero and Chiao Chiao as his love interest are both good, and the romantic element of the story - in particular in the early scenes - is nicely done but overall this feels like it needed some seriously different editing choices.

14. Dong fu ren / The Arch (Shu Shuen Tong, 1968)

This really is different from the typically HK stuff - at least the typical stuff that's available to most of us - from the period; a b/w arthouse drama directed by a woman. A nice change then from all the other stuff I've been watching this month from this part of the world, and it seems to me probably a key link between earlier Chinese realist directors like Fei Mu, and contemporary/recent filmmakers such as Yimou Zhang and Zhangke Jia. It's a fairly ordinary story, one told a thousand times: middle-aged (but still very young-looking and beautiful) woman falls in love with a cavalry officer posted to her village, only to see her daughter also fall for him and win his hand. As usual in such stories, she suppresses her feelings for her daughter's sake, but when the couple moves away, and her own mother falls sick, the calamity of loneliness really starts to set it. The one thing she has lived for is the Arch that is promised for her village, a sign of her virtue and strength in educating and improving the lives of the people, which will give her an income such that she can retire... but will she care when she wins the honor?

Given the simple story - this reminded me a lot of Satyajit Ray as well as other Chinese films - it's the style and acting that have to make something worthwhile here, and they really do. Lisa Lu - just over 40 at the time, but with one of those ageless faces that could have been 30 or 50 - as Madame Tung gives one of those beautifully subtle, acting-with-the-eyes performances that works as a slow burn into heartbreaking territory by the end, and the atmospheric, moon-and-mist filled photography and remarkable, judicious use of jump-cuts and other simple effects really make this a special experience.

14. Dong fu ren / The Arch (Shu Shuen Tong, 1968)
15. Hadaka no shima / The Naked Island (Kaneto Shindô, 1960)

Beautiful b/w, wordless cinemascope portrait of a small family that - for reasons never given, and barely hinted at - live by themselves on a rocky island miles from land, and toil ceaselessly as farmers, trading their good for necessary products in the town on the shore when needed. A monotonous, difficult life - with daily walks up steep slopes with gallons of water carried in pails - is interrupted when one of the two boys gets sick, and this causes a rift - already there certainly as shown in subtle ways (and one not-subtle slap) - between man and woman, but will it be permanent? Certainly a fascinating film as an almost ethnographic study (albeit with pro actors), and as I said, really beautiful - I think b/w 'scope is something that I could watch all the time - with terrific music by Hikari Hayashi - but there is just a limit for me, or at least is right now, in how much I can enjoy this sort of thing. And it reminded me in some ways of my parents - I got the notion that the family were on the island because it was the man's choice, because he wanted to be away from people, and the wife had some level of resistance; this isn't clear mind you, just a feeling - and this reminded me uncomfortably of my own stay-at-home-away-from-humanity father, and how my mother and my brother and I resented it. A tough viewing - maybe a great film too but I just couldn't really "enjoy" it all that much.

16. The Bellboy (Jerry Lewis, 1960)

I'm guessing I like Jerry Lewis more than most people here, but that probably isn't saying much - he has lost most of his popularity in the 60 years since this was released, and his humor is "dated" for many more than that of even many of his contemporaries; or they see in him a forerunner to lowbrow comics like Adam Sandler and Jim Carrey, and if they don't like those guys... Anyway, like I said, I like him more than most, and I usually do find something enjoyable in the films I've seen, but this one didn't provide a whole lot of fun. The introduction tells us - very accurately - that we're just going to see a series of sketches, and indeed that's what we have - Jerry playing a bellboy at a Miami Beach resort and getting into all kinds of trouble. I did like some sequences quite a bit - the whole doubles gag with him and Milton Berle was great - but overall this was just not that funny, and was saved mostly by Jerry's pretty strong grasp of editing and visual gags - the particular ways in which the Stan Laurel clone appears for example; also the fact that he isn't doing his stock irritating childish voice is a plus (and it plays into an interesting element of the film that you may not notice at first). In the end it's a marginal "like" for me at best.

17. Die wang jiao wa / Operation Lipstick (Umetsugu Inoue, 1967)

A totally obscure spy movie, though this one isn't really anything like a Bond copy - more a humorous blend of gangsters vs the feds and a nightclub singer (Pei-Pei Cheng, just stunning here) and her petty criminal "family" of pickpockets and fake-statue makers who get caught up in the search for a bronze lion with microfilm containing nuclear secrets. It's completely nonstop in it's action and goes from one set-piece to another at breakneck speed, pausing only for a couple of songs along the way. Lots of fun with nice use of day-glo colors, and lots of beautiful women. I guess this is in the end fairly typical of the lighter side of the spy/crime film from this era - think Matt Helm for example - in tone if not in the actual storytelling, which is a bit shaky as so often is the case in HK genre cinema. But it's quite enjoyable in the end even if I'll have forgotten it tomorrow. First check! And that's my third first check of the challenge, probably a record for me.

That's all I could manage. Thanks for hosting Lila!

1961 really fell behind in the last two days of the challenge, even after attempts to look specifically for 1961 films to watch by some challengers.

Image


22 new entries for Japan in the last two days means that it takes fourth place! Thanks to the final entries by Roger, all of Central Asia was represented in the challenge. A couple of Canadian entries at the end suggests to me that people were warming up to the July Canada challenge.
The most surprising thing to me were the few entries from South Asia. India with 3 entries only, despite the large number of great films from the country in the 1960s, even many official checks for those who care about those things. But overall a quite diverse list of countries!
