Need film clip suggestion [20 Aug 2008|10:40pm]

For a class activity, I want to show about 3 minutes of a film without the sound and have students (teenagers) add dialogue and make up a story.  Any suggestions?  Something dramatic that would have lots of possible storylines?

The Furies (1950) - A Western by Anthony Mann: [31 Jul 2008|10:00am]

[ mood | creative ]

I had the pleasure of watching the criterion DVD of the under-appreciated film, The Furies (1950). I loved it so much that I thought I'd share my thoughts here as well.

The movie was masterfully directed by one of my all time favourite directors, Anthony Mann. He's famous for directing a string of westerns with James Stewart. Those are the films I know him for. Furthermore I'm a fan of the genre; however this film took me by surprise. It's safe to say it's become a favourite. 
This film is both a brilliant melodrama and a sensational western. 

The Story is very complex, and the characters are very real and have a psychological complexity. Nobody is the hero and nobody is the totally bad. Barbara Stanwyck as Vance steals the show. Her chemistry with Walter Huston, who is equally fantastic and gives a brilliant performance, is quite wonderful to witness. They became very good friends while making the film; sadly he died shortly after finishing the film. The always interesting Wendell Corey is again fantastically cast opposite Stanwyck. And it's always wonderful to see Gilbert Roland, who I've seen in a lot of Film Noir's.

Anthony Mann was brilliant at creating great shots and he's wonderful at supporting with the camera the actors' performance, so the audience can feel for the complex characters. The cinematographer Victor Milner did a beautiful job, I usually hate Westerns in black and white, but here I couldn't have lived without it - it was so atmospheric and haunting and very symbolic.
Mann loved strong woman portrayed in movies, and every female in this movie has a chance to be as tough and intelligent as the male. It took me by storm - wonderful to witness. 

One of the most astounding, atmospheric and realistically versatile films I've seen in a long time.  Highly recommended - A must see if you like westerns.

The Criterion DVD is most definitely worth buying. It has some interesting extras and the book the movie is based on is included. I recommend reading Leonard Maltin's review of the movie

England at the Movies [30 Apr 2008|10:53am]

Hello all! I was thinking this morning about a project I've had in mind for a while. I want to figure out a way to see England through the ages - in the Movies. Meaning I'd like to compile a list of films which take place in every era of English history. (I was thinking of just doing London but that gets a little complicated.) 

I'm cross posting this and will fill it in as people come up with recommendations - I can't wait to hear all your suggestions! And by all means - please feel free to suggest more than one movie per era as well.

Thanks to Wikipedia... a list of the eras of English history (though I have to admit - a couple of these are a mystery even to me...)! 


Help! In What movie Appear White Mouses and a Piano? [20 Feb 2008|07:21am]

I have a question about a movie I have no idea:

I have a friend who need to know the tittle of a movie he watched it has a lot of time, when he was a kid. The only reference he can give me is that in the movie appeared two guys who - he doesn't remember by which reason -, filled a house with lot of mouses. It seems that all the animals went up and down by all the house and even inside a piano (the piano scene is what he remembers the best). He saysalso  he is nearly sure the guys weren't Laurel & Hardy. He is not sure even if it is a silent movie or an early talkie. He don't knows if it is a short of a long movie either. I know I don't give you very much information really. Not that bad as a challenge, eh?

I had several thoughts: There are mice in a Charley Bowers movie and I remember something with mouses in a Max Linder short but I have to admit I have a mess in my memory now.

Thank you very much for any information you can give me.
