Probably not. But the system isn't really set up to deal with exceptions . . .

Yes, an intermission would be appropriate; but Hollywood gave up the practice years ago.


Yeah, now they're into splitting the movie in half and having to make you pay twice to see the complete film.

Une femme mariee (1964) - 7/10. Godard's approach to a cinema that combines narrative and documentary techniques. An interesting experiment, but it doesn't say anything here that isn't covered better elsewhere, as in, say, Vivre sa vie, Le Mepris, or Masculin/Feminin. Still, it is a pleasure to see the beautiful limbs of the young Macha Meril (Godard is such a tease, we never get to see all parts of her at once).

The Grasshopper (1970) - 9/10. Showgirls meets Valley of the Dolls, but in 1970 no one was watching. Happily, Warner has opened its archives and made this available to us in 2009. Jacqueline Bisset plays a girl who runs away from home and begins a rapid descent into Hell, which, apparently, is located somewhere between LA and Vegas. This is trashy entertainment at its best. Ms. Bisset is in every scene, and has that girl got gaze! The film itself has got pace. Except for a social protest bit at the end that seems out of place and dates the whole thing, this picture never goes wrong. Ms. Bisset's character, on the other hand, does nothing else: hence, the entertainment.

Who's responsible for intermissions in films? The system? Or the director?
I guess the problem isn't so much in the system as in the fact, that people don't realise anymore that intermissions are appropriate.

French Connection 2 (1975) - 5.8/10

Didn't enjoy it, the scenes with Doyle wondering around the city in particular. (Peeling boiled eggs in a bar? Please.) The rehab part was also OTT.

I seem to recall there being an intermission when I went to see Gods and Generals, but then that movie was the better part of four hours so there would have been rioting if it had been otherwise.

Yeah, I think you're right (about there being an intermission for Gods and Generals). Can't think of another recent example, though.

The one and only time I've experienced an intermission at the movies was Titanic.

Yeah, I don't care for it either. Really boring.
The chase scene is still tops though Afro
The ending is good as well.

Kielletty hedelmä (2009) "Forbidden Fruit" - 6/10
Speaking of intermissions, I just experienced one. But it was only because their second projector is broken (for like a month now!) hereby making the changeover impossible. It was ok now, but it was not ok when I was there when the second projector broke down. I didn't mind that per se but the projectionist for some odd reason didn't care to pull the focus for the last twenty minutes... These kinda things help me to remember that I live in middle of nowhere.

As far as I remember, I never experienced an intermission in a cinema myself... Maybe a long, long time ago as a child. Maybe.

I'm not really living in the middle of nowhere, I live near Prague, but our local cinema has issues from time to time as well. I remember that during Million Dollar Baby, the subtitles switched off for a while. Tongue
They plan to rebuild and modernise the cinema now, though. I can't wait to see what comes out of it, if anything.
