Vintage/Bloopers Delayed

Posted in From the Editors at 10:30 am by Sam

A tight schedule these past two weeks have meant I haven’t been able to get to the Vintage and Blooper posts much. I hope these will resume next week. In the meantime, anybody seen any good movies lately?

    Well, since signing up for Netflix three weeks ago, I’ve seen The Third Man, Touch of Evil, Dark City, and next up is The Apartment.

    I’ve got to add and mark Ushpizin to my personal checklist on the F-LCL. It’s a Sukkot movie about a poor couple who has “found religion”, though not the one you might think of when you hear the phrase, and a pair of guests from the man’s rough-and-tumble past. I should watch it again when I’m alone with it, so I can pause and zoom in on details.

    (Also, I want to see it in color. The TV showed it totally in monochrome, and I took it for granted that that’s how it was intended to be viewed, but it was just a TV problem.)

    (As an aside, If you want more B/W movies, perhaps you can see if your TVs will display it like that. Yeah, it probably won’t be the same, since they’re shooting with color in mind, but still. ;-) )

    Coincidentally, I also just watched The Third Man for the first time. I really liked it a lot. Not that I neccessarily support remakes of classics, but I would love to see what the Coen brothers could do with The Third Man.

    I also just watched Batman Begins for the first time, and while I am not a huge superhero movie fan, I really enjoyed it as I do all Christopher Nolan films. Katie Holmes sucked, but didn’t ruin it.

    Last but not least, I checked out The Lives Of Others which was also top notch.

    Haven’t watched it yet, but I got the brand new Criterion edition of The Third Man for my birthday. I am salivating at the chance to listen to the new commentaries and to check out the extras.

    As for new films (and by that, I mean “films I’ve never seen before”) that I’ve watched lately… Aguirre, Wrath of God, on a big screen. It was remarkable, and very hard for me to describe. Overall, I think I’ve never had so strong an overwhelming feeling of the power of nature in a film before. It was haunting.

    And I don’t think I’m a huge fan of Antonioni. Some of his stuff I like, like La Notte, but I watched L’Eclisse and I was bored stiff. I felt like even less happened in that than L’Avventura.
