The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes and Dr.
Welcome to Riffle! Here's what's up.
Repulsion UK Roman Polanski The Ghost and Mrs. Meet Me in St. Moon UK Duncan Jones Tabu USA F. Becket UK Peter Glenville The End of St. Pure Spanish-Parisian piss and vinegar. Germany, directed by Werner Herzog Gonzo German director Werner Herzog goes to the Amazon with the conquistadors in the early 16th century and returns with an unforgettable hallucination of the New World-rusted armor, deadly whirlpools, dying aristocrats and 10, monkeys. Steely German skies menace. Directors Nicolas Ray and Sam Fuller make cameo appearances.
A Nous la Liberte , aka Freedom for Us, France, directed by Rene Clair The carefree French hoboes meet the modern fortress of industry, searching all the while for freedom and romance. A perfect summer-afternoon movie; afterwards, get a bottle of wine and make love in a field. Chaplin stole from it and got sued for his trouble. Cybulski died under a train nine years later, and a generation of Polish war babies mourn to this day. Ever wandered into a dead, aimless calm where nothing ever happens?
Michelangelo Antonioni knows where you live. How like our lives. Sadomasochistic role-playing, dressed by Chanel, never looked so radically chic.

No wonder she learns to sing in her chains. You can go to other great Vittorio De Sica movies Miracle in Milan, Shoeshine for soaring, ragged lyricism and poetry. It is decadently beautiful, humorously corrupt, claustrophobically intimate, and so acidic it can bring tears to your eyes. The Blue Angel , aka Der Blaue Engel, Germany, directed by Josef von Sternberg Josef von Sternberg went to Berlin to do a story of a pompous teacher who is seduced and humiliated by a cabaret singer.
Things grow richer and stranger when the murderer becomes involved with, and transformed by, a sexually repressed village schoolteacher. A two-hander brilliantly played by Jean Yanne and the essential Stephane Audran. Their friendship leads first to a house, and then to the drama that is forever occurring, or playing, there.
Can they rescue the little girl who seems to be trapped in this story? Hilarious, profound, a metaphor for filmgoing and fiction as a whole—this is a sublime film. But in this best of all possible worlds, our America, it is both unavailable and hardly ever heard of. Perhaps we have made it up? Put it this way: Heart-piercing performances by Jean-Louis Barrault and Arletty, playing mismatched lovers.
Sumptuous and sublime, top to bottom. And that is saying something. Beautiful, sinister and hugely influential. Levine, but it could just as well have been Joel Silver and company making Hudson Hawk. As, respectively, the producer and bubble-headed star, Jack Palance and Brigitte Bardot turn in perfect accounts of themselves. Saura and Chaplin were lovers at the time, and neither was ever better than here when they were together.
The Decalogue , aka Dekalog, Poland, directed by Krzysztof Kieslowski Some movies provoke people to alter haircuts, attitudes or musical tastes. This one will change the way you look at movies. A random murder, a diagnosis of cancer, the death of a dog—all are interwoven, all given equal weight. The American remakes—two for TV, a third one on the big screen—were travesties. Mabuse, Parts 1 and 2 , aka Doktor Mabuse der Spieler, directed by Fritz Lang An evil genius, heroes and innocents, cops and crooks, rival gangs, mind readers, mesmerists, spies, femmes fatales, car chases—no, not Die Hard, but a silent masterwork, so full of action that modern audiences would be exhausted.
Director Fritz Lang has never had an equal for inventing and framing lethal situations. Among the first amazed audiences were Hitler and Goebbels. The Double Life of Veronique is the real thing, a deeply mysterious essay on self, fate and Irene Jacob squared. The music alone gives you the shivers. The Earrings of Madame de. It starts as comic intrigue, moves through high romance, and turns to tragedy.
No one ever moved the camera better than Max Ophuls, or took so ambivalent a view of beauty. One wonders why succeeding generations have bothered to try to match this glory. Alexander Dovzhenko was less a communist or a Soviet than a poet of the seasons and human renewal. This is the cinema of Vivaldi and Van Gogh. This one concerns the struggle between idealism and materialism. Monica Vitti and Alain Delon are the protagonists. But nothing matches the conclusion, when the characters fail to make a rendezvous and the camera helplessly notes the patience and perpetuity of life.
Mandatory viewing for everyone, not to mention any director blindsided by fame. Their films together are a meeting of old-fashioned romance and modern skepticism. In this one, Ingrid is a society wife whose child dies. She goes mad or is it sane? She becomes a saint and an outcast. The face-peeling scene packs a visceral punch akin to the razor-slitting-the-eye image in Un Chien Andalou. Fanny and Alexander , aka Fanny och Alexander, W.
Floating Weeds , aka Ukigusa or Drifting Weeds, directed by Yasujiro Ozu Director Yasujiro Ozu had one subject—people, or family which is to say, people seen through time. He had one way of watching—at a distance, detached, attentive, respectful. There has never been a truer style, or one capable of seeing so much. Take a trip into Japanese cinema and you will never go back to the American with your old complacency and confidence.
While Europe is hammered by the Second World War and grown-ups all around them seem petty and small, a newly orphaned, homeless young girl and a peasant boy find grace, beauty and solace in burying dead animals. But Dreyer sees the situation as a model for every drama of liberty and happiness. In the end, as in the beginning, the great subject in movies is the human face as it begins to think and feel. He was also drawn to the subject of whether an artist or an actor can lead a real life—as opposed to following his calling.
This is the enactment of those thoughts, with Anna Magnani as the woman in a troupe of traveling players, loved by so many, yet, finally, incapable of loving people as much as she loves her work. The Gospel According to St. He searches for company and meaning. This is somber, plain and everyday, but the realism is lit up by the performance of Takashi Shimura and the sympathy of director Akira Kurosawa. A movie to be seen after any one of those American epics involving massive, spectacular and inhuman slaughter. He has done a murder. Because the world is rotten and hopeless.
Starring two epitomes of worldliness, Arletty and Jules Berry. One boy gets girl, then loses her. Other boy tries for girl. And so on, and so on. A political movie with a throbbing, panicky, bloody human heart. This movie uses her circus act as a framework, and so Montes appears in tableaux from her life, allowing flashbacks to the past.
This leads to a superb portrait of the struggle between love or liberty and confinement or destiny. The last film—in CinemaScope—by the unrivaled Max Ophuls. Sixty years before Hannibal Lecter, Peter Lorre gave us a classic self-loathing, compulsive child slayer. Even if the name Godard makes your temples pound, this movie can charm its way right up your leg. So really see it. Le Million , France, directed by Rene Clair Rene Clair loved prettiness, song and music, comic confusion and Paris—they are all here in this delicious confection about young lovers in search of a winning lottery ticket.
Still, Lord help sons if all mothers were as gorgeous and blithely sensual as Lea Massari. Abel Gance used every filmmaking trope in the book and then invented a few of his own. Keep an eye peeled for surrealist nutcase Antonin Artaud as Marat. Filled with those lyrical, meaning-packed moments you could grow old, die, and turn to dust waiting to see in American movies.
Jeanne Moreau and Marcello Mastroianni are the couple, and here is moviemaking as layered and complex as the best modern fiction. She Louise Brooks—still undefeated champion of the lethal look. As Joan, Maria Falconetti will never be forgotten; look out for Antonin Artaud again as a sympathetic priest. In her breakdown, she is cared for by a nurse Bibi Andersson. The nurse talks, acting up for the actress. Slowly, the characters become interwined, dependent, in love and full of enmity.
No one ever conceived or built sight gags with more care, and so these wondrous comic spectacles clash intriguingly with the determined, organized and humorless insanity of the city. The battle scenes will unhinge your jaw. Rashomon , aka In the Woods, Japan, directed by Akira Kurosawa Four strange people in feudal Japan tell self-serving versions of the same incident: A classic about no less a subject than the slipperiness of truth.
Abstract and monolithic, and I mean that in a good way. Hungarian Miklos Jancso makes movies without characters but with crowds you can actually identify with. The power struggles of history are played out in mesmerizing, long, uncut tracking shots. With its cool, crazy Chico Hamilton score, this is first-class Grand Guignol, tailor-made to watch with someone you love to grab. But La Roue is at least as good, a love story about a locomotive driver.
The Rules of the Game , aka La Regle du Jeu, France, directed by Jean Renoir The working definition of tragicomedy an un-American form based on the notion that nothing ever means only one thing.

In making this film, which includes the most heartrending antigravity scene in film history, Andrei Tarkovsky reinvented science fiction.
