(kr) wrote: This film "is" interesting, but it's also standoffish. Haskell Wexler has some interesting bits about him, but it's hard to care about him or his son Mark, who sometimes comes across like a giddy fool. I guess I just can't relate to that family scenario. And, I think, there was too much father-son philosophy about what it means to be in the shot. I think that got boring real fast. Watch Symbiopsychotaxiplasm: Take One if you want the philosophy of film put out in an interesting way.

(nl) wrote: a brilliant Van Gogh movie. Why? Well, it's because this movie (more than any Impressionist period piece I've watched) really captures the easy morality of the time. Far exceeds the over-dramatic and contrived Kirk Douglas effort of Hollywood to capture 'the life of the artist'. Superbly realised and believable.

(de) wrote: Best Macbeth ever filmed? Ummm yes. Best Macbeth adaptation to show high school kids to get them interested in the Bard? Hells yes. The great Toshiro Mifune takes the lead here as Washizu, the lord who rises to power after encountering the spirit who foretells his future. Mifune is his usual phenomenal self, just chewing scenery, and nailing the creeping paranoia and suspicion of Macbeth. This version really does a good job of emphasizing how important Lady Macbeth was in pushing her husband over the edge (played here as Asaji, by Isuzu Yamada, who's fantastic in a very restrained performance, which actually makes her more spooky). The film was shot on Mount Fuji, giving it an amazing atmosphere, and there was an actual castle built on site for the set (with help from US Army Engineers). A haunting tale, set perfectly in the feudal samurai period of Japan. Kurosawa...I think I've given up on superlatives for how good he was. The final scene is just tremendous, bringing prophecy to reality, and Mifune's eyes alone in this last scene do a better acting job than a majority of actors working today do with their entire bodies.Another nearly flawless classic.

I can remember where in the story line the song was sung and find myself back on the edge of my seat watching it all play out again in my mind. I saw Bambi about the same time, but even the forest fire sequence didn't affect me like the saddest part of Song of the South
(kr) wrote: Starring a cast including Greta Garbo and Melvyn Douglas with director Ernst Lubitsch, the film opens in Paris with three quirky Soviet Russians. They are sent to sell some jewels and at the same time to marvel at the capitalist society. Their curt, robotic, and serious comrade arrives to help them. She meets a Parisian playboy and seriously hopes to learn about his society. However, after he finally makes her laugh the two of them become romantically involved. A jealous duchess manipulates the situation and Ninotchka is back in Moscow. She is reunited with her friends there but still is somber because she is no longer with her love. That changes quickly enough though. Lubitsch gives us another witty comedy that plays off the conflict between ideologies and cultures. Garbo, Douglas, and the three Russians are all likable characters that help make this film fairly good.

(it) wrote: Michele Dotrice at her best, before Some Mothers do 'Ave 'Em (OK, mustn't forget Pamela Franklin). A classic British thriller from 1970 about the sexually motivated murder of girls cycling in the vast flatlands of northern central France. Probably everyone my age has seen it on telly, although only those with superb memories will be able to name it. Written by Brian Clemens (The Avengers) and Terry Nation (Dr Who). Directed by Robert Fuest (The Avengers). More bright and colourful than I remember it from when I last saw it 40 years ago. Excellent print, widescreen. The location is perfect, as the flat landscape and endless roads convey the girls' sense of isolation perfectly, as does the French language (if you don't know it). It inadvertently adds a little xenophobia, but that has to be accepted. No character is above suspicion, even after, close to the end, we work out the truth (our heroine should be able to, but...).It is deliberately very slow to create and add to the suspense and unease, but it is probably too slow in places because psychological motivation sometimes seems lacking. Three or four close-ups are out of focus, which is amateurish - you focus on the eyes, you don't measure it with tape and then let the actors lean towards the camera so that their shoulders are in focus and their heads not! It is a tour de force of thriller technique, but really it lacks any other dimension, and I don't think I'm going to feel the need to watch it again for another 40 years, so I can't give it 5 stars, sorry!Mini spoiler:I can't work out the point in Paul's destroying the film, is he a dubious character, or is it just a directorial blunder?
(kr) wrote: What really impressed me about this film is that they did so much, with so little. I read that they only had a $6000.00 budget for this film, and somebody with production experience (sound quality, set design, props,) things are definitely noticeable, but he created some interesting scenes. Which I have to respect. You could have also shaved maybe 10-15 minutes from the film, but overall I had a good time. Decent concept, decent execution.
