The Warriors - 4/5

I own the Ultimate Directors Cut which is possibly the worst version of the film. Got myself a copy of the original released DVD of the film and what a revelation that this exists in a digital format.

Robocop (2014) 5/10
Average remake/action flick saved from the  soulless syndrome by its powerful cast (namely Kinnaman, Oldman, Keaton and even SL Jackson)

Fontane Effi Briest (1974) - 10/10. Just as Fontane seems to have wanted to do a German Madame Bovary, Fassbinder seems to have wanted to do an Ophuls film using Fontane's novel as base. It's got everything: b&w photography; a moving camera; academy aspect ratio; a long-suffering heroine. It's also got a great Walter Scott joke. My favorite bit comes when Effi's husband, Baron Instetten, discovers letters revealing Effi had assignations with a Major Crampas 6 years earlier. There's nothing for it but to challenge the man to a duel. Instetten discusses the issue with his prospective second; the second tries to talk him out of it. While they discuss things we see in montage the journey they will take to the site of the duel, one consisting of train rides and finally a trip by coach. The discussion is amazing and turns on the question of honor. Had Instetten never mentioned the affair to anyone he could have ignored it. But now that he is discussing the matter with his second he is compelled to go through with the action. The fact that someone else now knows about it--the second--places the baron's honor in jeopardy. Failure to act will necessarily diminish Instetten in the eyes of the second. The second reluctantly agrees that he is right. The discussion and journey are intercut so that each concludes concurrently and ends with a close-up on Instetten's pistol as it fires, fatally wounding Crampus. This bit of bravura filmmaking is then capped with a wonderful final moment. The dying Crampas, by way of one of those officiating the duel, asks to say one last thing to Instetten. The baron approaches the man. Crampas begins, "Would you . . . ?" And dies. The baron walks away, probably to see about breakfast.
I loved this film when I saw it theatrically in the 70s. I have loved watching it on DVD. Now the UK Blu-ray is here and it looks as good as it possibly could (minus some black crush). Fantastic film, great transfer.

Indochine (1992) - 8/10. I loved this film when I saw it theatrically in the 90s. I loved it on LD, then on DVD. Now the Studio Canal Blu-ray is here and--WTH? What happened to the colors? Yellow piss grading strikes again!

Live By Night (2016/2017): Bloody awesome! Loved every second of it. I kept seeing Lawrence Tierney while watching Affleck, it's uncanny. 9/10

Shock (1946): Re-watch of this psychological noir thriller starring Vincent Price and Lynn Bari. A woman witnesses a murder, and goes into a catatonic state. But the doctor who treats her is the murderer. 7/10

All About Mankiewicz, Part 1 (1983) - 7/10. Cheaply made documentary consisting of interviews with the Mank himself. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0aTNbVyI2Gc

I was really thinking of putting a 4 there but a 3 seems a better fit. My reasoning is that Neiman is a colossal asshole since the first frame of the movie but he just needed the help of a colossal asshole of a teacher to help him guide to perfection of being the greatest asshole to ever be. I realized that I could care less about this asshole. But total merits on the way it looks and for making jazz something comprehensible to listen to.

Hard Boiled Sweets (2012): A London mobster needs to collect money from his local men for a pay off. His final stop is the sleazy seaside town of Southend, where several parties are looking to grab the money collected so far. The movie's title refers to using types of candy to describe each character when they first appear, this is one of many, many low-budget UK crime movies that are entertaining yet instantly forgettable at the same time. 6/10
