Once Upon A Time In America / Re: QT disses OUATIA

QT inexplicably praised the mediocre tv- movie STRANGER ON THE RUN.
??????

Have you ever noticed how circumspect Frayling is about this film?
.
His opinions are carefully given as not to offend the family or fans..
He has criticized the violence and treatment of women. But, that's a safe opinion to hold.
( Ithink he also said the score was too similar to OUTIW.)

If he ever really let.his views be known, I suspect they would closely mirror my own.

I cannot believe I?m wasting my time defending Mank in another thread while some philistine is attacking the holy grail of cinema here.

YOU can't believe it?!!

Third in the bluray series put out by Arrowm

Much better than the first two although the plot is only slightly more comprehensible.
The score does a good job of copying Morricone ( unless he actually wrote some of it)

6/10

The only good part of the film is.the Lower East side segment.
In the studio.cut, it's the first part of the film.
The whole flashback structure is.discarded

Wooooooooah

I can agree that it?s flawed

I can?t agree with the criticism of the score

As to the studio cut, I?ve thankfully never seen it so I can?t comment on it

In your heart you know I'm right. 😎

The media has decided that QT is the arbiter of what's cool; what's good.
Previously, it was Scorcese.

I don't need or want either of them to be set up as the dictator of fashion.

It's a seriously flawed film.
Even the score is a disappointment.
I prefer the studio cut also!

If the director was Sergio Provolone nobody would even discuss it.

Interesting.
I found the part about the election really elevated the film above just being  another film about Hollywood
As far as ' dramatic license goes, the film was practically screaming it was fiction- all those script inserts and excerpts made it clear

I just watched the new Arrow bluray which has the church scene that is missing in some versions.

Zappa (2020) - 10/10. Surprisingly well balanced, comprehensive, even affecting. I liked all the attention given his concert music. This is one of the rare cases where the talking heads actually have intelligent things to say. In this case, they actually know what they're talking about. Particularly insightful is Ruth Underwood, who was there at the beginning, there at the end, and still knows how to perform "Black Page" (which we see a snippet of her doing). On the blu there is even a deleted scene of Haskell Wexler talking about filming Uncle Meat. Now I guess I'll re-watch Medium Cool . . . (for which Zappa wrote the music).

Zappa appears in a club scene.
He sings one of his worst songs; another in his tiresome denounciations  of the counterculture.
He was a real reactionary at heart, despite his radical musical ideas.

ENIGMA ( 2001)
1/10

TOTALLY inept filmmaking.
Amazing considering the talent involved!

The bluray looks incredible.
The film doesn't really work.
.
Fonda wears the worst toupee in cinema history; even worse than Wayne and Stewart!

Michael Parks does his usual Brando/Dean shtick.

Worth a look but not memorable.

TWO FOR THE SEESAW
2/10

I'm a fan of the music score so I wanted to see the film.
I'm still a fan of the SCORE.
Absolutely awful in every other aspect( except photography)

It is an interesting theory though and worth debating about. I think the film leaves it up for grabs.

Can't believe you're spending so much time and energy trying to understand the " plot".
😆

6/11

The film works best if one treats it as a parody of the Leone films.
It seemed to be much longer than it is!
I thought it was two hours long!

It was nice to see a Italian western in 1:85 instead of the usual Tecniscope.
Bluesy looks just fine!

Enjoyed hearing our own Mike Siegel who provides some excellent background on the SARTANA series.
I don't believe these were released in USA so I really appreciated the background info!
