Tonight I watched a double feature of these two, seeing both only for the second time since seeing them in the theatre.

Shane is very minimal, as though the main themes of the western have been boiled down to a hard core. It's not a 'great' film, in any general sense, but it's a 'great western'

Quote:
I feel like the films of Hawks and Ford offer the most observation, and seem to have a strong understanding of the true nature of the themes they deal with.

Ford treated the West as national myth. Shane does too but in a far less epic way. I'm not sure about Hawks. I love him but tend to think he was never really suited to Westerns. Rio Bravo is fantastic but it's perhaps telling that John Carpenter relocated it to an urban setting for his remake, Assault on Precinct 13. Hawks' was at his best for me when making more big city-based gangster films or screwball comedies.

Quote:
As for The Searchers, Ford is flat-out one of the best artists of all time. His framing of his characters with long stretches of land behind them give his films such a natural feel to them. They're some of the most beautiful visuals.

I think that nails why Ford was so well suited (in terms of style) to the western. Plus his politics were fairly in tune with the deep underlying conservatism of the genre at that time (he dismissed more 'liberal' Westerns like High Noon as 'anti-westerns'). Ford was a romantic sentimentalist in a way that I don't think Hawks ever was and the classical western anyway was about as romantic and sentimental as American cinema probably ever got.

Anyway, just watched ...

 


The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford

Loved it. I'm becoming a really big fan of Casey Affleck.

johnny guitar

2nd time i watch this (first time was on vhs) and now crazier than ever. was recently released on bluray so it looks awesome (it's a 1.37 aspect ratio but the picture quality/color are great on hi def)

this is of course a western/non-western. meaning, it looks like a western but it kinda really isn't. scorsese gets a 3 minute special feature where he calls the movie "operatic" --and it is not just theconstant emotional high pitch of the
story but also the decor, makeup and wardrobe-- a saloon with a cave wall and a large piano on a stage? bananas. joan crawford's weird/beautiful face with the massive bright red lipstick on it is like it was picked out of a hallucination or a kenneth anger movie. sterling hayden with his colorless face and deadened features in a complete contrast (see photo above).

there is so much artificiality and artifice that goes against the grain of the classic western. like when the film switches between a clear blue sky and an ominous dark sunset as it cuts between scenes that are supposedly occurring at the same time. plus the night shots are spectacular. it's almost like a film noir, but with a bright and garish color palette.

anyway, if you haven't watched this, it's a cult classic, dreamlike and bizarre, don't miss it.

I once heard JG described as a 'baroque western', which works for me, although 'operatic' obviously makes just as much sense. As you say, it does look beautiful, which you'd expect from Nicholas Ray. His forte was his interiors (he trained as an architect under Frank Lloyd Wright). Either way, it has some of the strangest scenes in any Western, like the bit when Joan Crawford plays the piano to the posse, or when she walks through the waterfall with Sterling Hayden at the end.

The masses of vaguely subversive sex-related symbolism inevitably made it a far bigger hit with Freudian film critics than with general audiences, which makes the rumours that Hollywood want to remake it seem even more perverse.

PS: I've never thought of it in terms of Kenneth Anger but now you mention it I definitely know what you mean. Like Anger meeting Mario Bava in a wild west saloon.

Anyway, just watched ...

 


Once Upon a Time in Mexico.

I generally like Robert Rodriguez but this just feels like a bit of a mess. Johnny Depp's great (along with Mickey Rourke's chihuahua and Eva (Salma Who?) Mendes' sheer Eva Mendesness) but other than that it just drags on from one predictably absurdist action sequence to the next. And killing off Danny Trejo half way through has to be seen as an almost criminal waste of top class action-movie talent. In the end I think Rodriguez did it all far better the first time round, with El Mariachi.

But Eva Mendes. With a gun. Jesus flippin' Christ!

Its a mess especially when compared to Desperado and El Mariachi but on its own its still better than half the movies out there. Worth seeing all the same.

I just watched the Maniac remake. It wasn't good. The POV camera shots were maddening. Hot chicks though.

Right now I'm watching Searching for Sugar Man on Xanax (just got tattooed)

In a rare twist, this film was hands down better than the small short story which quasi-inspired it.

the grapes of wrath


 


this movie famously backfired in the sovet union when stalin showed it-- instead of saying "oh, how horrible they treat the workers" the russians said "wow, in america even the poor have cars."

in any case good movie and typical predatory behavior by the anonymous capitalist machinery. the bank the company the tractors the this the that-- nobody is responsible but everyone gets fucked.

red agitators

have things changed much or do they remain the same?

i probably should read the book.
