Fritz Lang is an interesting director to me, and my favorite of his work so far is The Testament of Dr. Mabuse.

You absolutely must see his American films. Not his Westerns so much but his crime films. The Big Heat, Scarlet Street and The Woman in the Window are some of the bleakest films Hollywood has ever produced. I actually prefer them to most of his German films, although I do think M is a masterpiece. Metropolis bored me silly, though.

"seems like old times" and it shows the flashbacks of their relationship just after it has seemingly ended. And of course that quote from Woody right before the film ends. I wouldn't disregard this film as pessimistic.. Woody adds sincerity and absurd dark humor that all makes sense to me. It's somewhat sad and beautiful at the same time. I'd have to admit it's one of my favorite films of all time. Most of the reviews I've read from writers I particularly admire are quite mixed on this one.

I'd recommend you go see it if they play it in your area, demonrail.

Yeah, I really must. It tends to get shown quite regularly so I've probably just taken it for granted a bit. Plus I've now seen it so many times on TV that I can pretty much repeat the dialogue line for line. But there are certain scenes that I imagine would be amazing on a big screen, like when he goes back to Brooklyn or the scenes in LA. Oh well, until the next time it's screened, "la di da"

I just watched it again. The first time I saw it I had a really hard time taking Ryan Gosling seriously but for some reason he clicked with me this time around. Excellent film.

Yeah, no arguments on any of those points from me. A massive Cary Grant fan, too. England's Marcello Mastroianni, only better. (I'm only half joking with the Mastroianni comparison.)

Just watched ...

 


Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.

I don't think this is a bad film but I do think it pretty much says everything it has to say in about the first 30 minutes and that everything after that just seems like more of the same.

Does no one else think that Hitchcock is one of the most over-rated fucking directors is the history of over-fucking rated directors?

I assume it would've been easier to appreciate Hitchcock during his time. I think he is one of the masters of cinema and deserves the respect he gets. He's one of the most impressive directors to use visual techniques to escalate the stories in his films. Visual irony and whatnot... simplistic techniques that weren't necessarily "flashy" compared to others. There's always something interesting about most of his shots to me... the classic shower scene for instance in Psycho. I've always felt there was a thematic quality to that scene... how it seems to show very little violence by using that cutting technique or whatever.. despite the fact that the main character is being stabbed to death and there's blood pouring in the shower. The majority of his violent scenes aren't merely there for the sake of it.. to entertain by showing someone dying and then moving along. He gives the audience the feeling that someone has just died, and even finds a way to add wit and dark humor to it. It has also been mentioned how the camera floats away from her corpse and moves gradually towards the money she stole. Perhaps not something everyone would notice initially, what it means...

The acting is always top notch in everything I've seen by him. Not enjoying his films is understandable, but I don't see how he is "overrated". The unsettling finish to "The Birds" is brilliant too. I guess to each his own, though...

I think what it is that pisses me off is that the story is moot. I always feel he's going "fuck the story, here's a new camera trick/overblown scene". Vertigo and North By Northwest for me was him at his absolute worst. Yes I realise I'm committing heresy by saying that, but they feel to me to be one big set piece after another with LOUD music to set tension another 10 more notches.

I guess it's fitting that the only two films of his I really enjoyed was Rope and Shadow Of A Doubt. Him at his most restrained (next to Lifeboat I suspect although I haven't seen that so can't say) and most enjoyable.

In my opinion anyway.

Oh and Tippie Hedren was so annoying in the Birds. She was NOT good in that film.

I can completely see what H8kurdt is saying, even though I'd still consider myself a Hitchcock fan. He's definitely one of the flashier directors and there's a lot of truth to claims that he always put style before substance and as such I've never found him to be the most emotionally involving of directors. If nothing else though he was technically superb.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not criticising Hitchcock but I do think his style of making films isn't necessarily for everyone. Although I prefer him to Kubrick I put them in a similar category. They're both very 'technical' directors.

Anyway, from the sublime to the ridiculous ...

 


Sex and the City

I'm not gonna criticise this movie, it is what it is, but did it really need to be roughly the same length as Stalker?!?

I actually enjoyed it but did keep checking the 'time remaining' display and thinking, "are you serious?"

also just watched ...

 


Erin Brockovich

I've decided I like Julia Roberts far more than I thought.

Clash of the Titans

I give up on this movie. I've tried to watch it all the way through a load of times since I got it but I just can't seem to do it. I always either fall asleep about a third of the way in or I just switch it off about half way through, out of sheer boredom. I can't think of many movies that I find downright impossible to sit through but this is definitely one of them.

I used to think it was a cheap cash in on Boys From Brazil until realising it actually predates it by a few years. I've a book somewhere on the Nazi's apparent love/hate relationship with women. I can't remember the title but I'll dig it out. Do you remember the title of the book about Irma Grese? I feel a brand new fascination brewing.

The book I've read, ''The Beautiful Beast: The Life and Crimes of SS-Aufseherin Irma Grese'', generally gets positive reviews and personally I thought it's an interesting read in terms of getting to know how far ''regular'' people will go in order to inflict atrocious pain on fellow human beings and get some insight into their own attitude towards physical and mental suffering in general. That's pretty much the only interest I have in this sort of stuff, and it was sort of brought up by watching some of those ‘’New French Extremity’’ (I know, terrible term which doesn’t do some of these directors any justice) movies. Other than that, I have never really liked the nazi/fascist/totalitarian/wartime dominatrix/s&m look. I am all for floral and polka dot motifs and eternal peace and well-being for everyone.
