viewing log(s) 2006

Postby A » Sat May 06, 2006 11:21 pm

Here is this years edition of what films I keep seeing and my initial response to them. Would be nice if more people would post theirs - if available of course.
And again, if you want any info on a title, just ask.

I always copy these listings from another site (if you are wondering about the numbering and some other stuff), and I don't take the time to adjust them.

Some explanations:

Listing is by:
personal rating (at the time I saw the film), original title, international title (if known), remark (if a version is cut, dubbed,etc.), year of production, main country it was produced in, director.
Shorts are listed with an "s" before everything.

new rating system:
The new rating system goes from 0 to 100, with 50 being the middle which shows that a film is on the verge between worthwhile and not.
In short the rating system can be understood as follows:
90 - 100: masterpiece
80 - 89: great
70 - 79: worth several viewings
60 - 69: worth seeing more than once
50 - 59: worth watching
40 - 49: can watch, but has many flaws
30 - 39: some redeeming value, but basically a failure
20 - 29: may still be watchable, but on your own risk
10 - 19: bad, but maybe some "trash"-value
0 - 9: avoid by all means

The rating reflects how good or bad I think a film to be (at the time I saw it, that is!). But it may not always show which one I liked or enjoyed more.

and a short legend:

seen in a filmtheater
/repeated viewing/
outstanding film

Enjoy!

I finally also completed my viewing log for March 2006 (!).

As always, a fascinating list. I think we've already talked about a few of them. Was there some sort of a Huppert retro in early May?

Yes, you're a good observer, but it was in early March (I still have to finsih April and May ). They had a quite huge Huppert retro with a small "catalogue" (too bad I left it at my parents, otherwise I could name some more films - they didn't show the newly restored print of Heaven's Gate though). I think it has something to do with the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Berlin having some very active competent authorities on film who work closely with two important cinemas in town. They successfully organize retrospectives and "compilations" for some time now (the Jaqcues Doillon retro, with Doillon being present was also their work, as well as a series of french films from the 30s which I also attended).
I only saw a handful of films from La Huppert, but it was an interesting experience to have her present at one of the screenings (I believe it was La dentelliere) as well as seeing Schroeter's most recent film (although i wasn't impressed). The funny thing is that a small part of this retro came to Nuremberg only this year (with the same catalogue ) where I saw Godard's impressive Sauve qui peut (La vie) (1979), and Pialat's extraordinary Loulou (1980). Don't know why it took them so long, as a friend told me that they had had the same Doillon retro shortly after Berlin last year, and in 2005 the whole Jean Eustache retrospective I was attending in Berlin, was shown in Nuremberg at the same time (!) - I even have both programs for April 2005 for both cinemas in both cities, and they were playing it all.

Currently they are having an almost complete Pasolini retro in Nuremberg (I'm going there today to see Mamma Roma (1962)), and I'm trying to get them to show some Slovenian films from the Yugoslav period in cooperation with our own cinema next year.

I'd be ecstatic if a Eustache retro came here. I've only seen The Mother and the Whore and it is certainly a masterpiece. From your list however, I must say I was disappointed with your rather low rating of Terminator 2. I consider it the perfect action film, and am generally a big James Cameron supporter. I know some scenes in the director's cut were perhaps better left on the cutting floor, but still a fantastic picture.

Also what's with all the Snoopy films, nostalgia or was there some program running them?

Oh, yes, March, of course. Those Huppert films made an impression because they were some of the same ones that played at her "Risk and Revelation" retro here in Toronto a couple of years ago. True, one which did very well covering her vast and esoteric body of work. I have that catalogue: Loulou, The Lacemaker, Merci pour le chocolat, Sauve qui peut (la vie), Madame Bovary, Les Destines sentimentales, Entre nous, La Sparation, La Vie promise, The Time of the Wolf, Heaven's Gate, Passion, Malina, Saint-Cyr, La Crmonie, Une affaire de femmes, The Trout, Violette Nozire, The Piano Teacher and Coup de torchon.

Not a bad selection at all. But I believe they showed even more of her films during the Berlin retro (though not all of the ones you listed). But watching films by Huppert is kind of a walk through 30 years of film history. She did work on many remarkable films, and with exceptionally gifted directors.

My appreciation of T2 used to be much higher in the past. I watched the director's Cut with a friend of mine, and though we had both been fans of the film, we agreed after the viewing that it was one of the most boring and sloppy directed (action)films we had come across. It was a huge let down after having seen and enjoyed the theatrical cut many times before. Either my movie tastes have "evolved" or the Director's Cut really is that bad. I think it's probably both.

Yes, watching Snoopy was pure Nostalgia, as I was having sessions with my roommate going through two DVDs we had been able to borrow from the library. What delightful films! I need to buy all of the series, as I am a huge fan.
I think my favorite from all the shorts and features is still Snoopy Come Home (1972).
A friend of mine is actually importing the complete cartoon series from the US (I think it ran for almost 50 years). If I had more money *dream*

Eustache is essential viewing for any cineaste. I hope you'll be able to see a retro in the future. I'm still delighted by your enthusiasm for "The Mother and the Whore".

Snoopy Come Home is the highest rated of the films here, and will eventually get a chance to se (re-see) it. Keeping my fingers crossed on Eustache.

What's your take on the original Terminator? Especially now that some deleted footage from that has been made available.
