".... Genocide tears a page from Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds (1963) before going wildly off the rails in its second act, dragging into the mix a missing hydrogen bomb, the coldblooded response of the American military complex, a beautiful but hopelessly deranged Holocaust survivor in cahoots with Eastern bloc spies, and insects sharing a single purpose to annihilate mankind before mankind can destroy the planet ..."

Sun., 9-7 for                          STARRING CAROL LYNLEY    (coincidental memorial tribute) :huh:

(times ET)
 
10:00 PM
B/W - 89 m

 
genre_NONE_expanded.gif
Blue Denim (1959)

Synopsis:  A teenage girl gets pregnant by her boyfriend and together they decide to get an abortion. Their parents find out and try to convince them to marry and keep the child.

" In the original stage version, Janet does have her pregnancy aborted, and she and Arthur talk it over later as they settle their feelings for each other. When the play was adapted for Hollywood, however, strict production codes forbade anything but the condemnation of abortion, so the storyline was changed....."

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blue_Denim
 

DirPhilip Dunne CastCarol Lynley , Brandon de Wilde , MacDonald Carey .


LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    
 

😧 Philip Dunne. Carol Lynley, Brandon de Wilde, Macdonald Carey, Marsha Hunt, Warren Berlinger, Roberta Shore.

"De Wilde and Lynley are striking as teenagers faced with Carol's pregnancy. Dated and naive, but well-acted adaptation of Broadway play."    CinemaScope.

=====================================================

later Sun. for                            TCM Imports...........

2:30 AM
B/W - 90 m
 
 
genre_NONE_expanded.gif

Synopsis:  filmmakers travel up and down Thailand interviewing people from all walks of life and feeding them an interrupted storyline which they are asked to finish.
 

DirApichatpong Weerasethakul CastDuangja Hiransri , Kongkeirt Komsiri , Somsri Pinyopol .

"....Because its experimental nature falls outside the mainstream of Thai cinema, Mysterious Object at Noon received little attention in the director's native country. However, through film festival screenings overseas, the film gained positive notice from film critics.

"Mr. Weerasethakul's film is like a piece of chamber music slowly, deftly expanding into a full symphonic movement; to watch it is to enter a fugue state that has the music and rhythms of another culture. It's really a movie that requires listening, reminding us that the medium did become talking pictures at one point," said Elvis Mitchell in The New York Times.

Yes, it is available on demand. For the record, my TV listed it as the 1981 Orson Welles documentary on the Holocaust but it is the 68 horror film and is listed on demand as such.

I liked the experimental style and cinematography of the film but the plot was certainly not that riveting.

I'm surprised there's no mention of "That's My Boy" which TCM premiered last night in prime time. It's a rare 1932 Columbia film that may have never been on television before. The star of the film, Richard Cromwell, reminds me of Leonardo DiCaprio.

I don't verify every single data point posted here, but I'll generally look into something if there seems to be a discrepancy among other viewers.  It did show up in my machine-generated reports, that is as far as I take it.  I have several different measures to make sure it is accurately entered, then whatever comes out is whatever comes out:

2:00 AM

Emitai ( 1971)

Set during World War II, a group of Diola women lead a rebellion against French seizures of men and rice for the war effort.

 

 

Dir Ousmane Sembene Cast Ousmane Camara , Robert Fontaine , Andongo Diabon .

BW- 101 mins,

".... Sembène’s nuanced touch, one that would run through his later films, has the utmost regard for the customs, but he doesn’t discount the pragmatism Djimenko represents. These are complex times, compounded by the silence of the gods. Djimenko feels his hands were forced by the inaction of the gods. ..."

4:00 AM

Ceddo ( 1977)

Dir Ousmane Sembene Cast Tabara Ndiaye , Moustapha Yade , Ismaila Diagne .

BW- 117 mins,

"...... the village in the film is an exemplary microcosm of African (or at least West African) society in the throes of a crucial transition brought about by external pressures, and internal greed, ambition and dissension, so the time-span of the film (approximately a day and a half) offers an exemplary survey of two or more centuries of West African history. ...."

DirLino Brocka CastHilda Koronel , Rafael Roco , Lou Salvador .

".... Brocka's Manila in the Claws of Light (1975).
