still, i just watched THE LIMITS OF CONTROL thanks you your post (so thanks for it). FUCKING BRILLIANT. i loved it. it's like a thing between EL TOPO and melville's LE SAMOURAI. I notice it's got a lot of bad reviews on IMDB but those people are FUCKING DOLTS> damn, i'm doing the ALL CAPS thing a lot today. don't know why. every day is different. christopher doyle's cinematography is something out of this fucking planet. anyway, i also saw this strange lovely thing this past weekend:

 


SUMMER HOURS.

i love how it seems to go nowhere and in the end you realize it's gone everywhere. fucking brilliant, and beautiful. a delicious movie.

Ocean's Twelve

I liked the first remake a lot but this is terrible. Although getting Julia Roberts to play a character pretending to be Julia Roberts was a fairly neat idea.

Geez. I think you, me and Jim are the only people who have ever seen that. I'm sure he wishes he never made it.


IF A TREE FALLS, a documentary about the "eco-terrorist" group Earth Liberation Front.

Highly recommended.

Again, I really did like the music in this and the opening credits scene evokes a very hypnotizing mood. Decent film overall I suppose. I'd be interested in reading what anyone here thinks of it, if they've seen it.

I find it quite boring, to be honest. It has all the classic Bava ingredients but doesn't really hold together as a complete movie - which is itself arguably a key ingredient in a lot of Bava's Gialli. So while he's become largely synonymous with that genre and has mainly built his reputation on them, it's the stuff in other genres that I tend to be more into: stuff like Black Sunday, Lisa and the Devil, Danger: Diabolik, Rabid Dogs and the Doctor Goldfoot movies. I suppose that's about as perverse as someone saying they're a big Woody Allen fan but tend not to like his comedies.

Oceans 13

It took me less than 30 minutes to realise I didn't have a clue what was going on, but strangely watchable.

Not sure why I neglected this for so long but thanks to demonrail for encouraging me to check this out. The father/son thing he seems to play around with in his work is most powerful in Hard Eight I think.

YES!!!!! Brilliant film! I've a feeling PTA himself isn't that big a fan, that it wasn't quite the film he wanted to make, but it's close to perfect for me. Philip Baker Hall and John Reilly are fantastic together. And I love Gwyneth Paltrow in it, too - although I'm becoming a bigger fan of her the more films I see her in (being largely put off in the beginning by stuff like Shakespeare in Love). I also just love the whole dead-end Vegas feel to it all. I've still yet to see The Master (not released here until next month) and would probably count Magnolia as his great artistic achievement but Hard Eight is the one I could watch over and over again just for the sheer pleasure of it. A mini masterpiece that, if I were to redo my all-time top ten, I'd be hard pressed not to include it. And while we all know how great an actor Philip Seymour Hoffman is, John Reilly is maybe my favourite working acting at the moment. He has a face I could watch forever. Either way, both of them are making a mockery of all those claims that 'they don't make 'em like that anymore'. Both of them would've been incredible in any era.

What a face

Does everyone know Anderson wanted HARD EIGHT to be a three hour epic?

Studio execs intervened. It's a chamber piece after all.

Anderson was pissed, but he had no clout, so the little gem is what we got. The execs were right, I suspect.

What a fucking ego on that guy.

He creates an unsettling mood and does a fine job of placing the hallucinatory scenes so that they almost correlate with reality. I find something agitating about Bergman's use of the camera during the dinner scene... where it's constantly jumping around from face to face and Max Von Sydow's brilliant performance adds to that tension.

So last night I watched:

 


Beautiful colorful film by the master himself. The scenes at the park are just gorgeous. I loved the sounds of leaves moving around in the wind and how there's a long period in that scene without any dialogue. The set designs that Antonioni constructed for the photo shoots were astonishing. The mimed tennis game at the end is perhaps the most powerful ending I've seen and nearly made me want to cry... despite not even knowing what the scene meant.

Bloody girl. It's a good film but not that good.

I agree with H8kudrt. I certainly don't hate it but bits of it just make me cringe, like when David Hemmings gets Vanessa Redgrave stoned and plays her jazz. It's dated quite badly, I think.

It's obviously open to endless interpretation but the best or most convincing one that I've heard is that by picking up the invisible ball, he's finally succumbed to the absurdity of the era. Although he was arguably as much a part of it from the word go.

To be honest, the anti-Blow Up thing (if we can call it that) seems more a British thing, just as most people I've met who don't like Zabriskie Point (which I really like) are American. There's a sense that outside Italy, Antonioni was a bit too much of a tourist, not really getting the details right and a bit in awe of it all. I actually know a couple of people who had minor parts in Blow Up, mostly in the party scene, and they weren't that convinced that Antonioni really 'got' the world they represented at all. General consensus is that Performance was a far more accurate and insightful portrayal of the whole Swinging London thing. I'm too young to really comment but certainly Performance feels more in tune with that time than Blow Up does - perhaps because Donald Cammell, Jagger, Anita Pallenberg, etc were very much a part of that scene. And maybe Antonioni's style just wasn't really suited to the subject-matter. Given what he did in films like Roma, Satyricon and obviously La Dolce Vita, perhaps Fellini would've been a better choice to direct it.
