The Juniper Tree is the one starring a very young Björk and it's pretty great, bleak and silent and witchy.

the girl from spirea x (f. hazel), Monday, 25 November 2019 20:53 (eight months ago) link

Yeah, I recall seeing that on VHS as a youngster. It stays with you, or at least it stayed with me.

Simon H., Monday, 25 November 2019 20:55 (eight months ago) link

Oh wow, they've also got Aves, Keene's short film she made after the Juniper Tree... not sure there's been any way to easily see that until now.

The Juniper Tree is the one starring a very young Björk and it's pretty great, bleak and silent and witchy.

not VERY young! her first album was recorded when she was 11, and she had another five out as an adult by the time she made the movie (at 25)

(it had a minor theatrical re-release in the US this year, definitely haunting)

insecurity bear (sic), Monday, 25 November 2019 21:42 (eight months ago) link

some solid Teresa Wright movies in there (esp. The Best Years of Our Lives)

flappy bird, Monday, 25 November 2019 23:14 (eight months ago) link

I was trying to figure out the bundles from that list -- directed by Wyler, directed by Curtiz, starring Bette Davis -- I guess maybe a Starring Teresa Wright bundle as well?

Shadow of a Doubt? Pride of the Yankees?

not VERY young! her first album was recorded when she was 11, and she had another five out as an adult by the time she made the movie (at 25)
It was filmed in 1986 (came out in 1990), so she would have been 20 or 21 at the time.

Alphaville is by far the best 60s Godard movie

flappy bird, Friday, 24 January 2020 23:42 (six months ago) link

Christ there's a ton of Godard on there, death notice?

flappy bird, Friday, 24 January 2020 23:43 (six months ago) link

was wondering if they were going to add a bunch of Schrader flicks. Light Sleeper is one of my favorite '90s noirs, he's essentially mining his own previous scripts and turning in a real brooding NYC piece with lots of high-end cocaine atmosphere and terrific performances from everyone involved.

omar little, Friday, 24 January 2020 23:49 (six months ago) link

*when rather than if, since he seems like a guy Criterion has taken an interest in a bit more lately.

would like to see LS get a nice blu-ray release, it had a DVD release years ago but it's probably not ideal.

Christ there's a ton of Godard on there, death notice?

― flappy bird

Between this, the Anna Karina retrospective at the Film Forum, and the Anna Karina retrospective on TCM, I feel like I'm drowning in Godard. I don't know where to turn because I've seen them all already. Maybe I'll check out Le petit soldat at the Film Forum, that's a relatively rare one.

I only just now noticed that they curate a selection for younger people every month.

one previously mentioned by me upthread -- i rewatched Light Sleeper, since the version i own is a DVD w/a 1.33:1 aspect ratio versus the 1.85:1 it was filmed in. Looks incredible, and one of those films i try to recommend to ppl a lot as a great moody '90s noir and a cut above most if not all others in the genre for its really palpable sense of urban desolation and ennui, and the deglamorized emptiness of certain corners of the high-end lifestyle. it's extremely "1992" in fashion and even w/the brooding Michael Been music, which i know turns off a lot of people but for me you just gotta commit to the experience since i think it's a pretty immersive film and one unafraid of a certain awkwardness and naked emotionality, and that includes the music. The performances are all good to incredible, w/Dafoe and Sarandon falling into the latter camp, as well as some really remarkable supporting work in a couple small key roles from Jane Adams and Victor Garber.

Anything expiring after today that I really need to see? (John Schlesinger, Lina Wertmüller, Jean-Pierre Melville, Bette Davis, William Wyler packages and a few other odds and ends)

Most of the films expiring in a few hours appeared in September, according to post upthread.

Melville's Le Cercle Rouge and le douls are great crime flics.
I just watched Schlesinger's Honky Tonk Freeway. Not sure if I'd call it good. It's like Nashville by way Cadyshack.

Yeah, pretty much love every single Melville I’ve seen, might watch Le Circle Rouge before the chimes at midnight take it away.

That and/or Barbara. Just sped-rewatched Jerichow, not sure if I can get to Yella. the films of CHRISTIAN PETZOLD

I didn't care much for Yella, which I watched when the Petzold films first went up. I watched Wyler's The Letter this afternoon, and I think I'll go for Le doulos tonight.

Surprising number of Melville’s - or Melvilles- survived the purge.

I thought An Elephant Sitting Still was supposed to leave after January but it's still just sitting there.

Army of Shadows is leaving this month, along with Shirley Clarke, Susan Seidelman and Danny Kaye, among others.

But you like Barbara, I think, don’t you?

Something Super Stupid Cupid (James Redd and the Blecchs), Sunday, 1 March 2020 21:16 (five months ago) link

He's uneven for me, but yes.

And Jerichow? Also, what about her, Nina Hoss?

Not challenging you, just curious

Barbara's my favorite, and Transit gripped me after a second viewing. Jerichow's good.

I skipped Jerichow. Of the ones I've seen, I'd rank Phoenix and Transit > Barbara >>>> Yella. I give Phoenix extra points for audacity -- the plot sounds totally ridiculous if I say it out loud, but he pulls it off.
