I have not seen:

 

The Book Thief

Despicable Me 2

The Double

Enemy

Frozen

Gloria

Human Capital

Metro Manila

Night Moves

The Railway Man

The Selfish Giant

Tracks

Venus in Furs

 

I've seen the above.

tracks.jpg

Mia Wasilkowska made my top ten list of actresses with Tracks which is about a young woman who decides to trek across the Australian desert with camels and her dog.  It is very much like Reese Witherspoon's Wild in that the fierce conditions of the trek and solitude lead to the person's heightened introspection.

paugarcia2.jpg?__SQUARESPACE_CACHEVERSIO

Gloria is a Chilean film for which its star Paulina Golina garnered the Best Actress Award at the Berlin Film Festival and also made my top ten.  She plays a single lady nearing sixty who likes to go to discos to search for men.  Thankfully it isn't quite Looking For Mr. Goodbar but Golina does the roller coaster of emotional highs and lows.  And yes, she does look like Tootsie with those glasses.

Human Capital was a critical success in Italy. Valeria Bruni Tedeschi who shows up a lot in the Italian Awards plays the mother of a boy who has been involved in a hit and run accident resulting in a person's death.  Her instincts are to protect her own which makes her susceptible to blackmail.  It is reminiscent of an episode in Wild Tales (2014).  Tedeschi was one of my runner ups.

venus-in-fur-still3-526x284.jpg

Emmanuelle Seigner and Mathieu Amalric were both on my runner ups lists for Roman Polanski's Venus In Furs.  It makes no apologies for showing its stage roots.  Seigner and Amalric are the only two in the film which takes place entirely in an empty theatre.  Seigner shows up for an audition for director, Amalric (standing in for Polanski??) and continues to turn the tables on him as to who is in charge.  "Kinky, but nice" as Laurence Harvey said in Expresso Bongo.

0930manila-600x381.jpg

Metro Manila is a Philippine film made by a British director.  It concerns an impoverished couple who move to the big city and are quickly taken advantage of by hucksters.  What starts out like a Satyajit Ray social drama eventually becomes a thriller.  The husband is befriended by John Arcilla (my choice for best supporting actor of the year) who works for an armoured car company.  Unfortunately for our couple beneath the surface of their benefactor lies a very troubling and duplicitous person.  The film was number 6 in my top ten of 2013.

Here are the films from 2013 that were mentioned that I have not seen as yet.  Another phone book!

 


The Grandmaster with Tony Leung, Chang Chen and Zhang Ziyi

 

Hard to be a God with Leonid Yarminik


Nymphomaniac with Charlottee Gainsbourg, Stellan Skarsgard, Christian Slater, Uma Thurman and Stacy Martin


A Touch of Sin with Wu Kiang, Luo Lansham and Li Meng

 

The Grandmaster is the most recent movie of Wong-Kar Wei.  It stars Tony Leung as Ip Man, the martial arts master best known for training Bruce Lee.  This really isn't about that relationship.  Both Leung and Zhang Ziyi got acting nominations from me.  To quote Andrew O'Hehir from Salon:  "But for Wong, the film’s action sequences really aren’t the point, or not in the same way as in ordinary martial-arts movies. They’re plot devices or punctuation marks, or tools for extending the essentially poetic and aesthetic manner of 'The Grandmaster' into physical space. Martial-arts cinema has always had a lot in common with ballet, and this film almost erases the distinction by deliberately smashing the genre’s veneer of masculinity. Of the three most important fights in 'The Grandmaster,' only one ends in conventional fashion, with a dastardly villain lying battered and broken on the ground. In two of the three, the victor is a woman – the unflappable Gong Er (Zhang), heir to an esoteric North China martial-arts tradition. One is an intensely romantic pas de deux, which ends with Gong Er and Ip Man (Leung) barely avoiding a passionate kiss...But there’s no meaningful sense in which 'The Grandmaster; could be called realistic. It takes place in a Wong-specific dream-China, the China of thousands of movies shot on Hong Kong soundstages, rendered even more abstract. Ip’s South China home city of Foshan is divided between rainy streetscapes and the ornate and decadent interiors of a brothel (whose fixtures and furniture keep being destroyed in kung-fu throwdowns), while Gong Er’s homeland in the north is a permanently snow-covered steppe, just waiting for Genghis Khan and the Mongols to come riding through."

Hard to be a God may be, in critic Glenn Kenny's words, "one of the most consistently disgusting movies ever made."  It is also one of the greatest movies of 2013.  One of the few films Russian director Alexei German (also spelled Gherman) ever managed to complete.  Actually after spending a dozen years making it he died before he could finish post-production.  Again, quoting Kenny again:  "The movie is adapted from a novel by Russian sci-fi masters Arkady and Boris Strugatsky (whose “Roadside Picnic” inspired Tarkovsky’s visionary, disagreeable 'Stalker'). “Sci-fi? But didn’t you mention a ‘medieval’ setting?” is maybe what you’re asking. Indeed I did. The conceit of 'God' is a rather pointedly allegorical one: Earth scientists have been secreted on a planet much like our own, one that is going through its own Middle Ages, and the movie tells the story of one such scientist who is powerless to stop the ruling class wipeout of what’s called the intelligentsia—that is, anyone among the population who can read or write. The focus of German’s movie is one such scientist, Don Rumata, played with admirable diligence and droll irony by Leonid Yarmolnik. He’s “disguised” as a nobleman who some inhabitants believe to be descended from a god. And in his real-life capacity as something close to a god, he’s appalled by the power plays going on around him, but helpless to stop it."

 

hard-to-be-a-god1.jpg

 

Described by Jonathan Romney as "art house cinema at its most heroically extreme," Peter Bradshaw writes on it's unique misc-en-scene:  "It really is authentically and awe-inspiringly insane, an unspooling nightmare of dismay, with long takes opening up a seamless surreal panorama. German appears to have overdubbed the dialogue (a little like Alexandr Sokurov) so that wherever they are spoken, lines sound like they are being intoned from within – which makes it all even more like a bad dream. There is a great deal of that Kafkaesque anxiety and wounded humour of the kind that German brought to the satires of the Stalin era from earlier in his career.  Each shot is a vision of pandemonium: a depthless chiaroscuro composition in which dogs, chickens, owls and hedgehogs appear on virtually equal terms with the bewildered humans, who themselves are semi-****. The camera ranges lightly over this panorama of bedlam, and characters both important and unimportant will occasionally peer stunned into the camera lens, like passersby in some documentary."

Nymph()maniac is the most recent movie of Lars von Trier.  Clocking in at five hours it consists of Charlotte Gainsbourg telling Stellan Skarsgard of how she has dealt with the trauma of her life by engaging in promiscuous sex.  Gainsboirg is very good, though the movie, to put it mildly, is not for everyone.  Thurman gives what may be her best performance as the wife of one of the men Gainsbourg's character is having an affair.  When she finds out she had what amounts to an epic meltdown:

 

140327_ThurmanMain.jpg

 

A Touch of Sin is perhaps the most commercial film of Chinese director Jia Zhangke, known for more modernist takes on post-Maoist China such as Platform, 24 City and Still Life.  The movie basically consists of four stories of people caught up in the wealth and corruption of modern China.  In the first story Wu Jiang, who I chose for best supporting actor, plays a man outraged at local corruption of Party and Capital and after having little success, resorts to drastic action.  In the third story, Zhao Tao got a supporting actress nomination from me playing a woman who works at a massage parlor who suffers unwanted attention from the friends of the wife of the man she is having an affair with.  She also has problems with her customers.  In the fourth story Lanshan Luo was a runner-up as a young man who has to flee from his factory to avoid paying a fine.  He finds work at an upscale brothel and has a crush on one of the employees there.

Here are the films from 2013 that were mentioned that I have not seen as yet.  Another phone book!

 


Stranger by the Lake with Patric d’Assumcal

 

Stranger by the Lake asks whether you would be willing to have great sex with a serial killer.  I suppose I'm not the sort of person who has a lot of sympathy for this basic dilemma.  But trying to be open-minded, I have to say I wouldn't keep doing it.  The movie is a French one which takes place by a nude beach where homosexuals meet and have flings.  The movie does include explicit homosexual sex.  But it also has Patric d'Assumcao in a good supporting role who watches the events with a careful skeptical eye.

d'Assumcao on the left, Pierre Deladonchamps on the right, who really should have better taste in men.

I've seen these. Short Term 12PrisonersWe Are the Best!, and Don Jon rank among my favorites of the year, but others have expressed their dislike of some of them, so you may think they're garbage. I'll just mention a couple of the less mainstream choices from among my nominees:

 

Big Bad Wolves is an Israeli film about a grieving father (my nominee Tzahi Grad) who kidnaps the man suspected of killing his daughter. He brings him to an isolated location with the intention of torturing him into a confession. A policeman on the case shows up and makes things difficult. This is blackly comic, and the strange tone may not be for everyone. Grad plays his character very low-key and deadpan, and I thought he was very good.

 

Tzahi+Grad+in+Big+Bad+Wolves.jpg

 

New World is a South Korean gangster movie. The plot is rather cliched, with an undercover cop (Lee Jung-jae) torn between his duty, his family, and his growing bond with those he's supposed to be taking down, such as the hot-headed wild card Jung Chung (my nominee Hwang Jung-min). SK star Choi Min-sik co-stars as Lee's police supervisor. The performances save this from being too routine, and there's a surprising ending. I liked Hwang quite a bit, and he has a real character arc, from starting out in the film as an insufferable jerk to slowly morphing into one of the more sympathetic characters of the piece.

 

275032_013.jpg

 

The Sacrament got a lot of good press for an indie horror movie, but I thought it was rather disappointing. It's shot in the found footage style, as a Vice-News-like team of investigators go to a remote location in another country to visit the sister of one of the reporters. She's joined a religious commune, which quickly reveals itself to be a cult. This is the Jim Jones cult story, fictionalized, and it follows the specifics of that group's demise so closely as to render little suspense to the film. However, I did like the performance by Gene Jones as the cult leader. He gets a couple of stand-out moments, speaking to the reporters and his flock, and he nails the mix of phony down-home folksiness masking the growing megalomania beneath.

Watching another film must begin to feel like a burden. For myself I have a rule that my watchlist can never exceed 100 titles. Otherwise there is no end in sight. Here are a few more tips:

 

Enemy is a film by Canadian director Denis Villeneuve. Jake Gyllenhaal plays his own double in this fictional nightmare. He manages to make the protagonist (left) look more sympathetic than his doppelgänger (right), without turning them into stereotypes. Mélanie Laurent and Sarah Gadon have convincing supporting roles as the respective girlfriend and wife of the lookalikes.

 

It turns out that I've seen Enemy after all.  I like to keep an endless list of films to see with the hope that it will inspire me to live to a very ripe old age.

Mr. Morgan's Last Love is a drama by Sandra Nettelbeck set in France about an unlikely friendship. There's a chemistry between Michael Caine and Clémence Poésy, who play each other's opposite in many senses. He's old, male, cynical and American; she's young, female, idealistic and French. Don't expect anything spectacular, but the actors make the characters look real and vulnerable.

The English Teacher is a romantic comedy about theater. Julianne Moore plays the title character. She teaches English in a small town. I nominated Nathan Lane for his supporting role as the neurotic man who dreamed of being a Broadway director, but got stuck as the local high school drama teacher. One of the pupils is played by Lily Collins, the daughter of singer Phil Collins.

Paradise: Hope (Paradies: Hoffnung) is the third part of an Austrian film trilogy by Ulrich Seidl. Each part is about an unhappy woman trying to improve her life. This one is about a diet camp for overweight teenagers. It becomes quite funny when it turns out these teenagers just want to have fun and don't care much about their weight. Melanie Lenz plays the lethargic girl who feels attracted to the camp doctor, played by Joseph Lorenz.

Great quotes from 2013

 

The Wolf of Wall Street

 

I'm a former member of the middle class raised by two accountants in a tiny apartment in Bayside, Queens. The year I turned 26, as the head of my own brokerage firm, I made $49 million, which really **** me off because it was three shy of a million a week.
