At least the dinosaurs serve a purpose (birth of compassion or something) :p

But seriously, a big chunk of ETV just felt like vague aimless meandering that just went on and on and on. I'd go as far...

Enter the void is hit and miss. It could loose an hour in the middle and be all the better for it. But great start and end though.

If we can work it out it looks like when I go down to London to see Andy we can see a 35mm print of Heaven's Gate one night, and see Moonsorrow live the next night. That'd be much epic (in the truest...

There's a 2K Restoration of Fritz Lang's Der müde Tod (Destiny) showing at Berlin this year. A representative from Eureka is there. I'd be so happy if this got a Masters of Cinema blu ray release....

I think I was a bit harsh on Lang when I said the 50's weren't too kind to him. I think he just had a poor run in the middle of the decade. I watched The Blue Gardenia this morning which whislt being...

Golly the 50's weren't kind to owd Fritz.

Just watched Human Desire, a film where the saving grace is that trains always look good on camera

Could you not ask a question on subjectivity and bias? Like does a doc have a duty to be neutral, does it need to take a side? That sort of thing.

Or do documentaries need talking heads/narration?...

I fear I've seen Lang's worst film in Moonfleet. An English period drama about Redbeard, a jewel and someone smuggling rum or something. It was so poor that I think my mind already tried to forget....

Is it cornmancer updating the blog? I can't recall who said they'd do it now.

Either way good effort whoever it was, loving the presentation.

Dads Army was kind of meh.

Well cast I'll give it that, and not boring as such. But it's never as funny as the TV series was. The plot could actually have been half decent. Like a war time...

Just rounded of Lang's Western's with Rancho Notorious, a film which makes no reference whatsoever to anything called Rancho Notorious.

It was pretty decent as it goes. As the song at the start so...

Just got back from Room. The second Lenny Abrahamson film I've seen, and the second that peaks too soon, before meandering on, never quite knowing where to end.

I did enjoy it. It had a lot of...

Western Union. Fritz Lang's second western and the least 'Langian' film he did (that I've seen).

Looks stunning in technicolour, and does action scenes well, but the tons and plot and just all over...

It's not a long film, but it didn't half drag sat in the cinema. The dream sequence towards the end was nicely done, but the rest just seemed a bit of a jumbled mess of ideas.

Yeah, I wanted to like Faust, it deserves to be liked. But Mesphito is so camp and half the film is just people running in circles and trying to fall in love. I just found it a little tedious. Which...

Watched Hangmen Also Die this morning. Probably Lang's most overtly anti Nazi film, and possibly his most ethically challenging. But as a film it's just decent. Nothing to get too excited about.

Carried on the Langathon with House By The River. You'd be forgiven for thinking it was from the late 20's rather than 1950. Utterly bizzare ending, but a pretty solid psychopathic lead, and ever...
