June 2018

Films of the Transitional 1960s

 

Friday, June 1        The Manchurian Candidate         (1962 / 126 min. / PG-13 / CC)

Major Bennet Marco (Frank Sinatra), a former prisoner of war in Korea, has nightmares in which a fellow prisoner, Raymond Shaw (Laurence Harvey), kills while brainwashed. Now an intelligence officer, Marco is led to investigate Shaw and his demagogic political family. Film aggregator Rotten Tomatoes says the film is a “blend of satire and political thriller that…remains distressingly relevant today.” Far superior to the 2004 remake.

Friday, June 8   8 1/2       (1963 / 138 min. / NR / CC)

Director Guido Anselmi (Marcello Mastroiani) cannot remember what the film he is about to start shooting is about. He lets his imagination run free, navigates a landscape of appealing women (Claudia Cardinale and Anouk Aimee among them), and his mind’s surreal emanations become the script. One critic says  ‘The beauty of the film lies in its confusion,’  while Pauline Kael calls it a ‘structural disaster.’ Decide for yourself.


 
Friday, June 15   Fail-Safe     (1964 / 112 min. / NR / CC)


Dr. Strangelove beat this excellent Cold War thriller to the box office by 9 months. That’s why millions of people didn’t see it.  As in Dr. Strangelove the situation is that a computer error has caused an American bomber group to head for Moscow. The US president (Henry Fonda) tries to call them back, but bomber pilots are trained to consider such messages enemy interference. Leaders on both sides work for a solution, but time is running out.

 

Friday, June 22   Cat Ballou     (1965 / 97 min. / NR / CC)


Nice girl Catherine Ballou (Jane Fonda) turns outlaw when developers kill her rancher father for his land. Based on a serious western novel,The Ballad of Cat Ballou, the film version is satire through and through.  Lee Marvin is priceless as a drunken gunslinger, and, from time to time, “Shouters” Nat King Cole and Stubby Kaye sing verses of the title ballad—onscreen, Greek chorus style. The script and actors are very, very funny.

 

Friday, June 29   Blow-Up     (1966 / 111 min. / NR / no CC)


A London fashion photographer (David Hemmings) walks out of a fashion shoot because he is bored. He goes to a park, where he photographs lovers, one of whom (Vanessa Redgrave) runs after him to demand his film, to no effect. Suspicious, the photographer develops his images, blows them up, and discovers—what? Something of a mind puzzle, Blow-Up improves with age.

True Stories to Film

 

Friday, July 6 Double feature!

Battleship Potemkin 1925 / 66 min. / NR / CC

Battleship Potemkin is an anti-czarist propaganda film cowritten and directed by Sergei Eisenstein during the first decade of Soviet rule. It is best known for Eisenstein’s demonstration of his montage technique—that is, juxtaposing long shots and closeups, high and low camera angles, and so on, by means of precise, dramatic editing. Potemkin brings intensity to the story of a 1905 mutiny by czarist sailors rebelling against dehumanizing conditions.

AND

            The General 1926 / 67 min. / NR / CC

Johnnie Gray (Buster Keaton) of Marietta, Georgia is the conductor of the locomotive The General. When the Civil War breaks out, he tries to enlist in the Confederate Army, but he’s rejected. Sad sack Gray and The General soon encounter the Union Army. In hilarious sight-gag reversals, the Yankees and Gray steal the train back and forth from each other. Based on an 1863 Confederate memoir, The General is now considered one of the best films ever made.

 

Friday, July 13            Chicago 2002 / 113 min. / PG-13 / CC

The story begins when housewife Roxie Hart (Renée Zellweger) shoots her abusive lover. In jail she meets Velma Kelly (Catherine Zeta-Jones), a vaudevillian (and killer). Their shared attorney (Richard Gere) turns them into PR razzle-dazzle, intending to influence—well, everyone. John C. Reilly and Queen Latifah have juicy supporting roles. The film is based on real-life jazz-age murders that inspired the hit Broadway musical, then this fabulous film.

 

Friday, July 20             A Beautiful Mind 2001 / 135 min. / PG-13 / CC

After completing graduate work at Princeton, mathematician John Nash agrees to teach at MIT, where he meets and falls in love with a student (Jennifer Connelly), whom he marries. After a while, his mind starts to play tricks on him. Without realizing it, he becomes a paranoid schizophrenic, so engrossed with imagined government encryption work that his marriage starts to unravel. Ron Howard directed this thriller about Nash, later a Nobel Prize winner.

 

Friday, July 27     Missing 1982 / 122 min. / PG / CC

An American journalist has disappeared. His father and wife (Jack Lemmon and Sissy Spacek) go to the unnamed country where he has been working. They search by questioning the country’s military and US officials, but receive virtually no information. Based on the true story of Charles Horman during the 1973 US-backed coup d’état against democratically elected Chilean President Salvador Allende. This Costa-Gavras film won the Palme D’or at Cannes.
