  • Wives Under Suspicion (1938 – James Whale) mixed (cable)
  • Mysterious Island (1961 – Cy Endfield) pro (cable)
  • The Rickshaw Man (1958 – Hiroshi Inagaki) pro(+) (cable)

Though I appreciate Hiroshi Inagaki’s mid-fifties Musashi Miyamoto samurai trilogy featuring the great Toshiro Mifune, I don’t rank the films amongst my favorite Japanese films of the era.  Despite the success and influence of the films I guess I find them just a little too staid and conventional, particularly compared to the inventive and iconoclastic samurai films that would follow.  In fact the first film of the series was mainstream enough to land a best foreign film Oscar (like another contemporary straight forward period film in a classical style, Kinugasa’s Gate of Hell).  My interest was peaked though when TCM recently ran The Rickshaw Man, another Inagaki/Mifune collaboration (they made over 15 films together).  The Rickshaw Man is a non-samuari film, a big budgeted comedy/drama period film, presented in color and Tohoscope.  While it’s also a rather conventional film made in a classical studio style, it’s a completely winning film.  Episodic and decade spanning, it’s a warm and moving effort, that’s intimate while suggesting the epic.  Seemingly largely forgotten on Western shores today, The Rickshaw Man has been highly lauded in the past – a Golden Lion winner in Venice (beating out, amongst others, another Japaenese color scope film, Kinoshita’s excellent The Ballad of Narayama) and placing 19th in the 1999 Kinema Junpo poll of greatest Japanese films (though completely absent from the 2009 version of the poll).  In this 1958 remake of a version of the story Inagaki directed in 1943, Mifune plays Matsugoro, a humble and poor rickshaw driver, a boisterous (nicknamed “Wild Matsu”) but good natured and honorable man who becomes attached to a comparatively affluent young boy and helps guide him to manhood.  All the while Matsugoro is secretly in love with the boy’s widowed mother gracefully played by the great Hideko Takamine (in one of her two meaningful pairings with Mifune, the other being A Wife’s Heart, a solid but lesser Mikio Naruse film).  While Matsugoro’s unrequited love takes on a sort of tortured martyrdom and the tear jerking proceedings risk sliding from the bittersweet to the oppressively bathetic, Mifune saves the day with an absolutely bravura performance, employing the full complement from his acting bag of tricks.  The film contains two key set pieces (a running race and a ceremonial kodo drum performance) that are surely amongst some of the more memorable moments in Mifune’s awe inspiring career.

  • Crime of Love (Delitto d’amore) (1974 – Luigi Comencini) pro (DVD)

Luigi Comenini, better known on these shores for comedies like the 1953 Oscar nominated Gina Lolobrigida vehicle Bread, Love and Dreams and one of its sequels (Bread, Love and Jealousy, aka Frisky), directs this strangely compelling drama with an unusual tone – part melodrama, part social problem film, part working class star crossed romance and part political film.  Italy has never been much of a “nation”, more like a collection of city states each containing a distinct culture, mores, dialect etc.  Simple North-South demarcations provide little insight for outsiders looking in, though this romance of cuture shock does rely on the rather extreme differences between its two central lovers, a Milanese factory worker and the a Sicilian woman who emigrated with her family to industrial Milan to find work in a factory (bringing to my mind Florida Balkan’s Calabrese bred, Milan residing factory worker in De Sica’s A Brief Vacation from the previous year).   The lovely Stefania Sandrelli stars and while she was born in Tuscany she was no stranger to playing Sicilians, most famously for Pietro Germi in dark comedy classics Divorce – Italian Style and Seduced and Abandoned.  Here she plays a product of an extreme patriarchical Catholic family, she’s tough, but chaste, superstitious, earnest and more than a little naïve.  Her love match, played by Giuliano Gemma, is a confident, politically astute, de facto head of a Marxist-athesist family.  From this simple friction comes the drama, all back dropped by a lament for the polluted environment and the workers fight for safe working condtions (though the modern looking factory presents a far different setting than the primitive conditions shown in the Turin set turn of the centrury workers rights drama The Organizer). There is no comedy to speak of in this sweet and somber film, and it hints in some ways as a compete reversal of the culture shock elements in the 1962 comedy Mafioso in which a Sicilian born efficiency expert working for Fiat and living in modern Milan with his chic blonde wife and blonde daughters return to Palermo for a visit.  While Comenini’s approach is classical (not exactly resembling the Italian art house “hits” of the day from the likes of Wertmuller, Ferreri, Bertolucci or Cavani) the result is winning.

  • Panique (1946 – Julien Duvivier) PRO(-) (On-line)
  • Fortune Is a Woman (aka She Played with Fire) (1957 – Sidney Gilliat) mixed(+) (DVD)
  • La notte brava (1959 – Mauro Bolognini) pro(+) (On-line)

Though almost forgotten today it seems, La notte brava is a truly undersung once influential film from a key period in Italian cinema.  In the late fifties skilled director Mauro Bolognini collaborated with celebrated novelist/poet/screenwriter Pier Paolo Pasolini on a number of films before Pasolini would slide into the director’s chair with his impressive debut AccattoneLa notte brava, scripted by Pasolini and loosely based on his 1955 novel Ragazzi di vita, is set over the course of a single action packed evening and the result is a somewhat episodic film that employs an impressive and highly attractive ensemble cast.  Its concerns are typical of Pasolini; the wild morally bankrupt youth of the Roman slums, the brawling, thieving, pimps, prostitutes, hustlers and black marketers.  This is not the idle youth with a hearts of gold found in Fellini’s I Vitteloni – but a slightly more nefarious type, more akin to the youth in the “France” portion of Antonioni’s I Vinti or the amoral park dwellers in La commare secca which was scripted by Pasolini but helmed by his protégé Bernado Bertolucci.  As I understand it, Bolognini and Pasolini during their period of collaboration were rather simpatico.  Both men were highly artistic, left wing and homosexual (though Bolognini was closeted).  It appears they ultimately broke over the certain glamorous and professional sheen of Bolognini’s films.  Perhaps, to Pasolini, Bolognini had bought too much into Rome as “Hollywood on the Tiber” and was succumbing to the post-neorealist trend of making what had been dubbed “Pink Neo-Realism” whereby slightly realistic environments and situations were used to showcase the latest buxom sex symbol (for example, think of the Silvana Mangano and Sophia Loren in the Oscar approved films Bitter Rice and Two Women, respectively).  Bolognini was more measured and less inclined to go the non-professional actor route, and make the type of brutal and raw provocations for which Pasolini would become famous.  In a desire for authenticity Pasolini eschewed professional non-local talent with the brutish Franco Citti playing the fringe dwelling pimp in Accattone.  When Passolini did turn to a professional actor to play the whore in Mamma Roma he would go to the earthy and middle aged Anna Magnani – a world class actress, but not exactly a conventional starlet.  In contrast, Bolognini in La notte brava used some relatively polished runway ready Italian beauties (Rosanna Schiaffino, Antonella Lualdi, Elsa Martinelli and Anna Maria Ferrero) and experienced non-Italian actors (French actors Jean-Claude Brialy, Laurent Terzieff and Mylène Demongeot).  In the end La notte brava may seem to some like a mere proletariat La dolce vita for the delinquent set, but to me the glamour is never fatal to the grit.

  • Hi, Mom! (1970 – Brian De Palma) mixed(+) (DVD)
  • Tobacco Road (1941 – John Ford) mixed (cable)

Novelist Erksine Caldwell must be some sort of auteurism antidote for me.  I count John Ford and Anthony Mann amongst my all time favorite directors but can’t find much affection for their adaptations of best selling Caldwell novels – Ford with Tobacco Road (though by way of a stage version) and Mann with God’s Little Acre; and it’s not like I have a hillbilly allergy having general fondness for the likes of Baby Doll, The Southerner and comedies like Li’l Abner, Murder, He Says, and The Egg and I (which launched Ma and Pa Kettle on the movie watching world).  At least Ford’s Will Rogers rural southern set comedies of the 30s had a sense of ease; Caldwell’s Georgian universe is wild, loud, generally obnoxious and occasionally grotesque.  Incessant horn honking and the hyper comedic antics of Marjorie Rambeau as Sister Bessie, Ford regular Ward Bond as turnip loving Lov Bensey and, particularly, William Tracy as Dude can be extremely grating. Still, Ford imbues the look of the film with his usual magic touch, with some shots that would be equally at home in The Grapes of Wrath, Young Mr. Lincoln or How Green Was My Valley (also from 1941 and also lensed by Arthur C. Miller). Like much in Ford, and also to the film’s credit, there is an effective and affectionate use of music (bringing to mind the Sons of the Pioneers in Rio Grande or the sentimental spirituals in The Sun Shines Bright) with Ford hymn fave Shall We Gather at the River in heavy rotation.  Although the occasional tender and quiet moment, typically between the very good Charley Grapewin as Jeeter Lester and Elizabeth Patterson as Jeeter’s wife, offers a welcome reprieve from the clamor and hysteria.  Future Laura duo Gene Tierney (here caked in dirt) and Dana Andrews (as one of the few characters that has seen a bath) have supporting roles.

  • A Safe Place (1971 – Henry Jaglom) con(+) (Blu-ray)

In music a grace note is a small additional note or embellishment of short duration before the sounding of the relatively longer-lasting note.  A grace note acts as ornamentation and can be considered harmonically and melodically subservient.  When discussing films reviewers and critics often use the term grace note to describe those small, often lyrical sometimes mysterious, moments that enhance a scene, a theme or a character.  Grace notes can be minor but important flashes of suggestion and impression that serve the greater emotional core of the story.  They can be mere cuts to a character’s gesture or expression or a simple insert of a shot of the wind through the trees.  For me, it’s where the mood and spirit of a film meet the content, and as a result the meaning or impact is deepened.  Henry Jaglom’s fractured, subjective, generally non-narrative film A Safe Place comes off like an attempt to make a film entirely out of grace notes.  Yet, without any central narrative core there’s nothing to enhance, nothing to be subservient to.  The film is full of interesting, sometimes striking, images and use of music, scenes are repeated or altered for effect, the logic, if there is any, is akin to dream logic.  One saving grace is that the film stars the always enchanting Tuesday Weld, an actress that can turn even the most bizarre or muddled improvisational moment into something of interest.  Utimately the film overall is mixed bag that is compelling for a while but becomes increasingly tedious as it moves along.  Jack Nicholson (coming off his equally flawed directorial debut Drive, He Said) has a small part as Weld’s ex, but his appearance later in the film does little to invigorate matters.  Orson Welles also appears as a magician of sorts (and possible figment of the Weld character’s imagination), levitating a silver orb that anticipates the orgasmatron from Sleeper.  It’s amazing that this rather experimental film produced by BBS had a major studio (Columbia) release; but those were different times, times when you could get MGM to release the likes of Zabriskie Point with it apocalyptic desert orgy or Alex in Wonderland with its reenactment of the My Lai massacre by way of Sunset Boulevard to the strains of Hooray for Hollywood.

  • Absence of Malice (1981 – Sydney Pollack) mixed(+) (cable)
  • Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol (2011 – Brad Bird) mixed (DVD)
  • Bleak Moments (1971 – Mike Leigh) pro(-) (DVD)

Watching Mike Leigh’s spare, drab, low key and low budgeted directorial debut Bleak Moments so soon after witnessing the feverish big budgeted garish excesses of Ken Russell’s The Music Lovers, reinforced to me that there are many methods of stylization in film, and style need not solely be the product of a film’s editing and look it is often a simple matter of tone and performance.  While Russell’s visually stunning and narratively dubious Tchiakovsky biopic eschews any sense of reality, I found Leigh’s brooding downbeat kitchen sink drama(/comedy?) to be almost equally detached from a sense of real life.  While the quotidian routines of the various characters living lives of quiet (mumbling?) desperation would certainly suggest a type of ordinariness, if not, reality, the actor’s performances are so odd that they seem downright otherworldly.  An otherworldliness that is not the byproduct of a typically theatrical acting style (the film is based on a Leigh play).  The excessively awkward and socially inept characters wear their repression on their sleeves, like it results from some sort of pandemic disease.  Despite the film’s rather deliberate pace, the frustration and general discomfort the viewer feels watching the various misfits attempt to navigate through seemingly typical social situations is strangely fascinating.  Anne Raitt as the main character, an unmarried office worker that cares for her mentally challenged adult sister (Sarah Stephenson), is first rate, subtlely suggesting an inner passion and, with each half smile, a strong sense of humor.  While Russell’s film is chock full of grandiose set pieces, Bleak Moments has some set pieces of its own – particularly an unforgettable date from hell sequence involving a near empty Chinese restaurant followed by tea and sherry fueled aborted foreplay.  It’s a whole new kind of tension.

When Dustin Hoffman’s Benjamin Braddock manages to liberate Elaine Robinson from the dreaded bonds of holy matrimony in Mike Nichols’ The Graduate the film ends on a rather singular ambiguous note, the future of the couple is decidedly uncertain.  Somewhat similarly Nichols old comedy partner Elaine May ends her take on Neil Simon’s The Heartbreak Kid with a curious ambiguity; though, in that case, within the context of a completed marriage ceremony.  There’s no such ambiguity in Germi’s Dustin Hoffman starring anti-marriage pro-divorce Italo sex farce Alfredo, Alfredo.  While not quite the failure the film’s generally negative reputation suggests, Alfredo, Alfredo does pale against Germi’s earlier like minded satiric black comedies Divorce – Italian Style and Seduced and Abandoned.  The comedy here is far broader, the characters are less fully formed and the call for social change (reform of Italy’s divorce laws) is far more heavy handed.  Here Germi regular Stefania Sandrelli plays the wife from hell not as a frigid shrew; but as an obsessed, irrational, insatiable type, a far different type of wife than Jeannie Berlin’s sun burned egg salad smeared tone deaf newlywed from The Heartbreak Kid.  Sex is not so much liberating to Hoffman’s nebbish Alfredo, but a prison.  In European made, set or inspired films of the period, it is only sex outside of the marriage that invigorates.  In 1972 movie terms, think of Jack Lemmon’s tightly wound character in Avanti confronting the idea of a mistress in the shadow of his father’s death, Louise Lasser’s character’s need for public love making to obtain satisfaction in the Italian film inspired segment of Woody Allen’s Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex, the attempt at a form of spouse blessed infidelity in Sautet’s Cesar and Rosalie, and the protagonist’s self defeating infidelity in spirit in Rohmer’s Love in the Afternoon. At least Hoffman’s Alfredo has the good sense to engage with a modern progressive woman as a mistress (Carla Gravina), far different than Charles Grodin impulsively throwing Jeannie Berlin over for Cybill Shepherd’s shiksa goddess in a manner that differs little from Billy Pilgrim’s retrograde fantasies (?) of living out his days with the buxom Montana Wildhack on the planet Tralfamadore (Slaughterhouse Five, also from 1972).  I saw the English dubbed version of Alfredo, Alfredo, and given how much voice over narration comes from Hoffman’s character, it’s a passable (occasionally preferable) way to experience the film. It’s not Hoffman’s first stab at Italian cinema – in 1968 in his first post The Graduate release he starred in Giorgio Gentili’s flop Un dollaro per 7 vigliacchi (aka Madigan’s Millions), which I’ve managed to avoid.
