Cahill U.S. Marshal (1973)
Visually beautiful feel-good western with strong message
Andrew V. McLaglen is a director who can not be compared with the greatest directors of Westerns ever but his westerns definitely have something special. They have charisma, they are visually beautiful and the story is often instructive. Perhaps the quality of his films are not up to the highest representatives of the western genre, but at least very good such us Cahill U.S. Marshal where John Wayne is Sheriff with hard character who wants to raise their children in the best possible way since he is a widower and a lot of time devoted to work. The film is full of lovable characters, or characters that represent something in the overall story to better evoke the lesson that is extremely important in this film. Some complain about lack of quality in the screenplay, which Wayne said himself, but I think here the scenario is not so important in this picture. He is very good, satisfactory, maybe average but not essential, because this movie is not so much based on it, but the message, extremely important and strong one. Although the quality of Wayne's films in the 70's waned, this movie is definitely worth of watching and quite underrated if you ask me. Not for the puritans, not for the fastidious, but for those who will appreciate the character and part of John Wayne and what this movie offers.
Tarr's Film-noir masterpiece
Karhozat AKA Damnation is movie from controversial Hungarian director Bela Tarr, who is known for black and white films. Tarr, most famous for 415-minute masterpiece Satantango and Werckmeister Harmonies presented this is one, the first big his movie any very strong. Known for his style, which is absolutely unique Tarr sometimes compares with names like Tarkovsky but he always refused such comparisons, saying that it is deeply insulting. His films are characterized primarily due to the extremely long takes (especially in Satantango) whose average duration of 10 minutes and 20 seconds, which gives a special beauty of his films, of course, those who are patient. In addition to these enormously long staff films reflect the extraordinary depth (which he admittedly likes to interpret and interpret claiming that everything the way you present the viewer), a beautiful black and white photography, inspiring and extremely lucid dialogues which all results in a special atmosphere. His films are definitely "movies from another world", something unusual, something different that you will not be able to see even the director Tarkovsky and similar caliber. His career was marked by collaboration with novelist Laszlo Krasznahorkaiem. They started in 1987. Doing exactly the damnation to complete the adaptation of the novel Krasznohorkaievog 'Satantango' which took them seven years.
The film follows the main character who is extremely depressed and whose life is tantamount to bypassing cheap inn, especially Titanic bar where he meets and falls in love with a lounge singer who is married. After his bartender Titanic job offer he skillfully develops the plan and employs husband of singer to do the work, just so he could be with her. What makes this movie different from other Tarrovih work is noir trick. Although the film locations of directors always impressive ones are still confined to small towns, small towns or suburbs while here, although the situation is the same, there is the Titanic bar where the main character spends his nights. Another thing that is very skillfully exploited the time "opportunity." With all the gloom and depression in which we pull this masterpiece in the film is continuously falling rain, falling and falling and falling ... For this reason, worn raincoats, hats and sometimes contributing already mentioned noir trick. Another important thing which Tarr raises the level of his films is the music which is credited Mihly Vgs which is working on almost each of his film sometimes and handing him a major role. His Soundtracs are some other dimension, something you will not hear anywhere, something that has not already seen. Now all of this pack and you will truly masterpiece, a film about the days where you think, and enjoy remembering it.
Boys Don't Cry (1999)
Strong and powerful piece of movie
I love to run into some independent gem of a project like this. Otherwise, based on the true story of a young transsexual who was killed 1993rd year this movie is very good view of such problems, and great adversity and illustrates the problems that these people face. Although I am quite conservative in terms of such things, and therefore I long refused to look at this little masterpiece is incredible influence on me and I pretty much touched. Watching him, I realized that I watched it a long time ago but it seems to me not entirely. Filmed for "all" $ 2,000,000 this movie exudes emotion and crawl under the skin of the viewer as much as he is conservative and a cold heart. Starring double Oscar winner Hilary Swank, which is just for this movie won one of his two Oscars. And deservedly so, its transformation and acting are perfect, I think this is what really hard to fake it, one has to change the look and physiognomy but the other is able to behave like the opposite sex as Hilary here makes perfect. When I watched it for the first time, it seems to me, I did not know that role is played by a woman, but I thought it was a boy, it speaks for itself, and now I do not know Swank question whether I could discern whether the actor or actress. Swank's role or get in front of hundreds of candidates and interesting way, lies. She lied about her age in fact when they asked her why she did it she said she would do the same and Brandon (the main protagonist of the film, which often has a lie in order to conceal his true identity). A film that leaves you breathless and which will, I believe, always be current because of the sensitive topics he covers. I think that movie, without exaggeration, has the power to make the viewer a better person because it knows how to win the sympathy of the same that simply must develop empathy with the main character, whether he wants it or not. Not many movie like this can get into the psyche of the viewer, forcing some to reconsider their views and thoughts, and they may even change. Once again, all praise DIRECTOR Peirce, Swank and other cast in this superb achievement. Great recommendation for all, even for those most committed
Det sjunde inseglet (1957)
I decided yesterday to re-watch this masterpiece of Ingmar Bergman's because when I was in this group recalled the movie we just watched it immensely, and I was not wrong.
The story follows the knight Antonius Block at which death occurs but he begged to give him more time because he has to know some of the questions, she religious themes about God and the arrangements with her to play chess and that it does not affect all death while in the game. The story takes place in medieval times, and he has shown a visual characterization of the characters on the level and what most adorns this movie are philosophical, religious and ideological issues. Although the ideology and thoughts are not typical for this time it does not bother the viewer because they are of exceptional quality and encourage us to thinking. Some religious issues, particularly relating to the God, are still current today, and they are probably all of us at least once asked some of them. The film has a great selection of music led the Dies Irae (Day of Wrath), whose verses possess tremendous strength and also makes you think.Bergman was the inspiration for the film found in a medieval church saw the portrait in which a man plays chess with death. Also, Bergman said that he is this movie helped to overcome their own fear of death which, I believe, most of us possess. It is almost unbelievable that Bergman and 1957th recorded and Wild Strewberries along Seventh Seal who possess enough common ground and are thematically very similar and connected them as follows: The Seventh Seal Mia offered Block and his squire with wild strawberries while in Trivium Isak Borg brief stop in my room staring at the chess board.
Also, one of the then scourge of the plague threatening the population and what is the color. Well illustrated and then show clergy that is, from superstition or fear pf enforce control the population that they blindly believed. It consisted of burning witches and various individuals who were punished. Execute them so for their crimes. This is one of the few films that can not be found, and that just wants any mistakes and I believe it is perfectly artistic and cinematic achievement.
Dial M for Murder as a Gem
Speak as a Bogart fan must say that this one is for me in the better half of Bogart filmography and I saw many of his films. For me a perfect movie, and I do not understand why this movie has "only" this grade which is very good but for me it has a lot of material and a lot more, I even included it in the Top 250 with no problems. Film style irresistibly draws on films of Alfred Hithcock you believe that a man he did not know the director of the film after watching the same very likely say that this is a Hitchcock movie, I think this is enough said. The script is for a clean 10-house as well as top-notch acting. All in all my film is pure quality and I recommend it to fans of Bogart and those of Hitchcock films.
Double Indemnity (1944)
Little man inside me thinks that this one is masterpiece!
Billy Wilder is one of the few, perhaps the only director whose films I liked all of the rows, 11 of them for now. If I had to rank them according to quality, as objective as subjective character, there would be a very big problem, almost impossible one. But perhaps of all these movies this one can be especially highlighted and placed in pole position. It is, as you can see, a film-noir Double Indemnity (Double Indemnity). Although I love Bogart and Maltese Falcon, perhaps my favorite noir, I have to admit that this is definitely above par, if not a little better but The Maltese Falcon built in favor because it was one of if not the first "big" representative of this genre. Double Indemnity is recorded based on the novel by James M. Cain and the story is based, as was later discovered, on a true story, Snyder-Gray case, in which they recorded and later film The Postman Always Rings Twice and Body Heat. The film scenario was written by famous Raymond Chandler best known for his screenplays for The Big Sleep, Strangers on a Train, Murder, My Sweet and The Long Goodbye, which is incidentally a kind of remake of The Big Sleep.Chandler is in the film and has a cameo appearance and this is his only appearance on the big screen ever recorded. The film follows protagonist Walter Neff (Fred MacMurray) who specializes in selling insurance and thus meets the fatal Phyllis Dietrichson (Barbara Stanwyck) who hints that he wants the death of his wife. Since Walter works in direct contact with the insurance they begin to forge a perfect plan, the plan flawlessly. In addition to these two actors phenomenal there is still a great Edward G. Robinson in the equally essential role. Double Indemnity is a film that you will see in a single breath, a film in which absolutely everything works perfectly without any slowdown and loss of pace, he's doing what the viewer rare that a film can - keeps it continually in suspense until this, fascinated and intoxicated by its quality keeps nailed with a chair experiencing an adventure for adventure. The film offers us to "enter into it," become part of the attending and feel just like the characters, as if somewhere next to them watching. Although starting Politics and operates retrospectively striking a note of some stuff he still works perfectly. About Noir elements do not need to waste words, because it is indeed a wonderful staff, impressive games of light and shadow and the characterization of the characters, which is one of the strongest assets of this epochal achievement. I think it is now almost impossible to make a movie like this or try remake same as it would not go near this quality. Almost dare to say that this film does not have a flaw and that is the definition of perfection. It is interesting that many actors refused the role of Walter, but many are also badly wanted to he went to MacMurray in whose place here do not even dare to imagine any other reason that is perfectly acted and did not know how not earned an Oscar nomination. The film was nominated for seven or Oscars and did not win a single which is considered one of the greatest injustices ever speaking of the Oscars. But later, Wilder received his Oscar for The Lost Weekend, which was even then earned four prestigious awards, which is justice, we can say, is met. Double Indemnity is mandatory reading for all film lovers to be as soon as possible to look if it has not already done so far.
