Family Viewing

 


 Some other great flicks (sometimes with actors', at other times with directors', names included) in no particular order are:


Le Roi de Coeur (King of Hearts)

791.4372 K53a1

Summary: A Scottish soldier is assigned the task of disarming a bomb in a small French town at the close of World War I. The townspeople have deserted the town leaving behind the inmates of the local insane asylum who embrace the soldier as their king. I found it absolutely hilarious.

This Man Must Die  directed by Claude Chabrol 


 

 

 



Ken Russell, one of the great masters of photography:

Women In Love

791.4372 W8723r1



Music Lovers directed by Ken Russell (the VPL doesn't have it)

 

 

Mahler directed by Ken Russell (as much as I love Russell's photography I thought it was a bit 'overdone' in this film; the VPL doesn't have it.)

 


McCabe & Mrs Miller directed by Robert Altman with Warren Beatty, Julie Christie

791.4372 M12a1  



Is Paris Burning?

791.4372 I731c

Summary: As the Nazis march through Europe in 1944, the freedom fighters of Paris mount a brave resistance. Hitler sends a top general to determine if the city can be held. If not, Paris will be burned.

The Chamber

791.4372 C443f1

It's about a lawyer fighting a death penalty case and I found it interesting.

400 Blows directed by François Truffaut

791.4372 J941t1

Summary: A 13-year-old boy on a quest for the meaning of life ends up on the wrong side of the law.

The Last Metro directed by François Truffaut

791.4372 D2751t1



Song Without End with Dirk Bogarde

791.4372 S6984v

A film about the life of  Franz Liszt. It has lots of beautiful music (just don't look at Bogarde's hands faking the playing; it's appalling). In spite of the copious amount of music there is a real plot. 



Murder by Decree

791.4372 M9752c

Summary: Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson conduct a gruesome and dangerous search through London's squalid east end for the legendary Jack the Ripper. They soon discover that he is no ordinary murderer, but one with influential and determined friends.
