haa haa haa haaa

i like most of his moobys. the whole antoine doinel cycle.

as for ďgreatnessĒ i think both jules et jim and 400 blows are candidates, but iíd have to mull it over and probably rewatch to make any sort of well-founded claims (apart from historical evidence).

I don't know if it counts as "great," but I really like Shoot the Piano Player.

And although not "art," Wild Child and Small Change have always pleased me.

Every Godard film I have ever seen is a piece of shit aimed at fucking soft-ass people who have no real problems in their lives, except to whine and cry about their fucking bullshit relationships. fucking forget that fuck for good. master of the dull, the interminable pointlessness, the fucking creme de la creme of poser art wanna be's who claim his greatness.

Yeah, I don't think he's a bad director, but I do think his reputation may be a little inflated. He's not a director I have strong opinions about in either direction. Which might be the problem. I mean at least Godard's almost guaranteed to provoke a response.

EDIT: As demonstrated by Rob.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a Godard film, actually. Not thinking of any off hand anyway.

I just watched Silence of the Lambs for some reason. Still good, in case you were wondering.

Well I'm glad I'm not the only one to have the same feelings regarding Truffaut and Godard.

Anyway, I'm currently in the process of moving house and whilst doing all that I've been on Harrison Ford fix. So here's my FORD FIX MIX!

Just finished this one tonight. Honestly, I didn't even know about this and yet supposedly it was a MASSIVE hit when it came out. I really enjoyed it, plus I'm a total sucker for court room dramas. When a film does it well and doesn't feel like it's having to spoon feed everything to you I'm a happy man and this is no exception. Pus it shows that Harrison Ford is actually a decent actor.

 


#As I walk through the Amish paradise#

It's a real weird idea for a story tbh and one that shouldn't work, but again ol' Harrison helps makes it work. Anyway, makes me feel there should be more Amish people in films.

 


ACTION FORD! I remember I kept seeing this in Blockbusters when i first came out and wanting to watch it. 20 years later I finally have. Basically you know what you're gonna get before you even start the film. Also, I didn't realise Gary Oldman was in this stealing every scene as he does.

 


Fucking love this film. Seen it so many times and it never gets boring.

"I didn't do it!"
"I don't care"

Ace.

contempt too, but that was all before he turned full egghead

with masculin-feminin he started getting into “theory” and i think by may 68 he was full maoist or something, and thus pursued his own version of the cultural revolution, attempting to lecture and indoctrinate everyone.

Godard is great when your young. He’s like reading the Beats. Soon you see that beneath all the flash there’s not really much there. I have a major soft spot for films like Pierrot le fou, Contempt and Vivre sa vie because they were the first “art house” films I got into but they don’t rank as high anymore. I think he theorized way too much about the criteria needed to be an artist before he bothered trying to be one. And most of his “innovations” aren’t really innovative after you watch a few of the great silent classics... Did anyone see the 3D film he put out? It looked batshit.

It’s funny Truffaut is being argued now. I’ve got 400 Blows in rotation just to give Truffaut another chance. I haven’t seen it in a looooong time and it is about time to reevaluate.

Last film I watched: The White Sheik. Fellini’s first solo feature. Never thought I’d see a boring Fellini film but now I have. But what can I say it still had hints of that great Fellini humor and a fun cameo from Masina as a prostitute that would end up being Cabiria in the great Nights of Cabiria.

Fellini could certainly get boring later on. City of Women? But yeah, it's rare in that period. Have you seen I Vitelloni? I love that one but it rarely gets mentioned.

Ha! I still havenít seen any post-Amarcord but one day Iíll get around to it.

I LOVE I Vitteloni. Very underrated and I can relate to it 100%. I tear up everytime. It is actually a weird tradition that I tend to watch it every New Yearís Eve as sort of a cleanse of the old and inspiration to be better I guess.

i’ve seen 2 of his post 70s

the one about the orchestra (prova d’orchesta, i think it’s called) and the one about the ship... the ship sails on?

i liked them both

prova d’orchesta (forgive my spelling if it sucks) is hilarious.

and the ship sails on (?) was good too. not amazing great or anything but i’d definitely rewatch it. thought i can’t remember much of it ha ha ha. lots of people on a boat. like titanic but better xD

^ Recently rewatched “City of Lost Children,” and goddammit, it’s still one of my favorite movies. Not top of the heap, but still great. I think “Delicatessen” might be better as far as Jeunet films go (or even “Amelie”) but it’s been forever since I last saw that. I just know it left a pretty big impression.

Not many folks realize that Jean-Pierre Jeunet actually directed “Alien Resurrection” of all fucking things. Probably why that one feels like it has a genuine craft to it in terms of direction and cinematography, even if the story is meh. It’s definiely the best of the post-“Aliens” sequels — excluding “Prometheus” of course.
But is that weird or what? That Jeunet would attempt to crossover into American cinema with fucking a flippin’ ALIEN sequel.

Had he directed a script by, say, Wes Anderson, then I think that shit would Haagen STUCK. Anderson’s Jeunet influence is obvious as fuck, and together they could have probably done some amazing things.
