#WatchlistScreenCaps 2/26 - 3/4


Here are the last ten films I watched, with a screen-captured image and quick sentence on the subject. Follow this feature on Twitter here, read about the kickoff here, and view the previous #WatchlistScreenCaps roundup here.



Mughal-E-Azam (1960), dir. K. Asif
viewed February 26, 2013
"Hallucinatory color & heightened artificiality at times anticipates (good) CGI spectacles."

Death by Hanging (1968), dir. Nagasi Oshima
viewed February 26, 2013
"Dark comedy, scathing satire, unsettling psychodrama, wrapped in newspaper & tied with a noose."

 Act of God (1980), dir. Peter Greenaway
viewed February 28, 2013
"Greenaway does a for-real doc (I think). Btw, I too was (almost?) struck by lightning."

 Fish Heads (1980), dir. Bill Paxton
viewed March 1, 2013
"Fish heads, fish heads, roly-poly fish heads, fish heads, fish heads, eat 'em up, yummm."

 The Fly (1980), dir. Ferenc Rofusz
viewed March 1, 2013
"Empathy for a fly - impressive. Wonder if there's allegorical element in there."

Atlantic City (1980), dir. Louis Malle
viewed March 1, 2013
"Wallace Shawn in a restaurant in a Louis Malle movie ... but this time as waiter, not diner."

Larissa (1980), dir. Elim Klimov
viewed March 2, 2013
"Moving tribute from one filmmaker to another, but also from a husband to his wife."

 Argo (2012), dir. Ben Affleck
viewed March 3, 2013
"And the Oscar for Most Facial Hair in a Single Film goes to..."

 Les Miserables (2012), dir. Tom Hooper
viewed March 4, 2013
"Many awkward bits and tedious passages, but some powerful moments as well."

 Charulata (1964), dir. Satyajit Ray
viewed March 4, 2013
"Terrible print, but emotions came through anyway - ennui, desire, jealousy, tenderness."
