From the archive, 8 November 1952: New films in London

8 November 2010 1:53 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Originally published in the Manchester Guardian on 8 November 1952

From Our London Film Critic

Jean Cocteau has said – perhaps with a parent's defiance in protecting an unpopular offspring – that of all his films, "Les Enfants Terribles" (at the Continentale, renamed "The Strange Ones") is his favourite.

Whatever his own preferences it is not his best film; it does not equal "Orphée". On the other hand, it is by no means the weakling in M. Cocteau's brood of film-children; it is, indeed, a highly typical film – perhaps the most Cocteau-esque of all he has made – and shares not only the weaknesses which belong to most of his films but also many of the excellent qualities which made "Orphée" so distinguished.

M. Cocteau here has adapted (and Jean-Pierre Melville has directed the film adaptation) his extremely fanciful and morbid novel about a sister and brother who live in what amounts to a human vacuum, »

František Vlácil, Edinburgh, Glasgow & London

While the likes of Milos Forman and Jirí Menzel benefited from attention focused on Czech cinema in the late-60s and early-70s, František Vlácil wasn't so lucky. He's been mentioned in the same breath as Welles, Tarkovsky and even Kurosawa; and on home turf, his 1967 historical drama Marketa Lazarová is considered a masterpiece. Yet few of Vlácil's films have ever been shown in the UK. Vlácil, who died in 1999, kept working up to the late-80s, and this selection gives a good indication of his range, incorporating Marketa Lazarová alongside lesser-known works such as The Little Shepherd Boy From The Valley and Shadows Of A Hot Summer.

Anthology Film Archives’ Essential Cinema Repertory Collection

3 May 2010 6:00 AM, PDT | Underground Film Journal | See recent Underground Film Journal news »

First the history, then the list:

In 1969, Jerome Hill, P. Adams Sitney, Peter Kubelka, Stan Brakhage, and Jonas Mekas decided to open the world’s first museum devoted to film. Of course, a typical museum hangs its collections of artwork on the wall for visitors to walk up to and study. However, a film museum needs special considerations on how — and what, of course — to present its collection to the public.

Thus, for this film museum, first a film selection committee was formed that included James Broughton, Ken Kelman, Peter Kubelka, Jonas Mekas and P. Adams Sitney, plus, for a time, Stan Brakhage. This committee met over the course of several months to decide exactly what films would be collected and how they would be shown. The final selection of films would come to be called the The Essential Cinema Repertory.

The Essential Cinema Collection that the committee came up with consisted of about 330 films. »
