Canon Of Film: ‘Playtime’

12 September 2017 1:26 AM, PDT | Age of the Nerd | See recent Age of the Nerd news »

In the second edition of Canon Of Film, we take a look a Jacques Tati‘s ‘Playtime’. For the genesis of Canon Of Film, you can click here.

Playtime” (1967)

Director: Jacques Tati

Screenplay: Jacques Lagrange and Jacques Tati; with addition English dialogue by Art Buchwald

Jacques Tati’s ‘Playtime‘ is clearly a masterpiece, but I think almost nobody can actually master it. According to film scholar Noel Berch, ‘Playtime‘, doesn’t have to just be seen multiple times, but has to be seen from several different points in the theater itself. The movie is all action. Not the way we normally think of action, but “action” in terms of filling up the screen. To watch one thing – usually in the foreground – means you’re missing many things happening in the background, and vice-versa.

The most expensive French film made at the time, the film’s box office failure would eventually bankrupt Tati. »

“Tramps” united in Switzerland on Sunday to celebrate Charlie Chaplin on what would have been the actor’s 128th birthday, the Associated Press reports.

Hundreds of fans — young and old — dressed as the comedian’s “Tramp” and gathered at his former home in Switzerland, where Chaplin lived for 25 years until his death in 1977.

According to Chaplin’s World museum, 662 people — sporting mustaches, canes, black bowler hats, and black suits — congregated at the Manoir de Ban in Corsier-sur-Vevey near Lake Geneva on Sunday, which also marked the museum’s one-year anniversary. “We did it! 662 people dressed as the Tramp are gathering to celebrate our first anniversary. #IamPartoftheLegend #ChaplinsWorld,” the museum’s Twitter account tweeted.
