  4. Jean Serroy's Les 1000 Films Culte de l'Histoire du Cinema's icon

    Jean Serroy's Les 1000 Films Culte de l'Histoire du Cinema

    Favs/dislikes: 3:0. University professor emeritus and film critic, Jean Serroy takes the reader through the history of cinema which, in 120 years of existence, has never stopped reinventing itself, going from silent to talkies in the early 1930s, from black and white to color, from small format square screens to the spectacular dimensions of ever larger screens, from film and cellulose nitrate to 4D. This book thus proposes to return to the 1,000 cult films that have marked our era and which, each, have punctuated the life of generations of yesterday and today. Hundreds of films from all genres and all countries are presented, decade by decade, according to a selection based on objective data such as the annual admissions rankings, in France and abroad, the major festivals such as Cannes and Venice but also on major celebrations such as the Oscars and the Césars or even on the notoriety consecrated by critics. So many criteria that have allowed cinema to establish itself as a new, unique and irreplaceable art.

    Pardon le Cinéma vol.2: 100 films à voir d'urgence, des classiques aux pépites

    Favs/dislikes: 3:0. [b]Pardon the Cinema, vol. 2![/b] The team of the first French podcast on cinema does it again with a new opus. New films, new classics to (re)discover, new nuggets lovingly unearthed, new great moments of the 7th art... But the objective is always the same: to wake up your screens with another cinema, an in-depth selection that travels across all continents and all genres, from 1907 to 2021, from Chile to Japan, from documentaries to action films... [b]100 unknown, forgotten or marginal films... to see urgently! [/b] "Pardon le Cinema" is Victor Bonnefoy (director, screenwriter and creator of the Youtube channel InThePanda), Sophie Grech (press officer and screenwriter), Marc Moquin (editor-in-chief of Revus & Corrigés), Simon Riaux (critic cinema in Le Cercle on Canal+ or on the Large Screen website), Arthur Cios (journalist for Konbini) and Alexis Roux (cinema journalist): a team that talks about cinema in an irresponsible but respectful atmosphere and brings together more than 100,000 listeners per month.
  6. Charles Bramesco's Colors of Film: The Story of Cinema in 50 Palettes's icon

    Charles Bramesco's Colors of Film: The Story of Cinema in 50 Palettes

    Favs/dislikes: 5:0. Taking you from the earliest feature films to today, Colours of Film introduces 50 iconic movies and explains the pivotal role that colour played in their success. The use of colour is an essential part of film. It has the power to evoke powerful emotions, provide subtle psychological symbolism and act as a narrative device. In Colours of Film, film critic Charles Bramesco introduces an element of cinema that is often overlooked, yet has been used in extraordinary ways. Using infographic colour palettes, and stills from the movies, this is a lively and fresh approach to film for cinema-goers and colour lovers alike. He also explores in fascinating detail how the development of technologies have shaped the course of modern cinema, from how the feud between Kodak and Fujifilm shaped the colour palettes of the 20th Century's greatest filmakers, to how the advent of computer technology is creating a digital wonderland for modern directors in which anything is possible. ​Filled with sparkling insights and fascinating accounts from the history of cinema, Colours of Film is an indispensable guide to one of the most important visual elements in the medium of film. I. Over the Rainbow: Post-facto Colorization (1-11) II. Unbound Imaginations: Kodak & Fujifilm (12-24) III. Making a Statement: Color Theory (25-41)* IV. Digital Wonderlands: The Color TV (42-52) *Three Colors Trilogy is considered one entry, thus 52 movies.
  7. BFI's 100 Bible Films's icon

    BFI's 100 Bible Films

    Favs/dislikes: 1:0. From The Passion of the Christ to Life of Brian, and from The Ten Commandments to Last Temptation of Christ, filmmakers have been adapting the stories of the Bible for over 120 years, from the first time the Höritz Passion Play was filmed in the Czech Republic back in 1897. Ever since, these stories have inspired musicals, comedies, sci-fi, surrealist visions and the avant-garde not to mention spawning their own genre, the biblical epic. Filmmakers across six continents and from all kinds of religious perspectives (or none at all), have adapted the greatest stories ever told, delighting some and infuriating others. 100 Bible Films is the indispensable guide to this wide and varied output, providing an authoritative but accessible history of biblical adaptations through one hundred of the most interesting and significant biblical films. Richly illustrated with film stills, this book depicts how such films have undertaken a complex negotiation between art, commerce, entertainment and religion. Matthew Page traces the screen history of the biblical stories from the very earliest silent passion plays, via the golden ages of the biblical epic, through to more innovative and controversial later films as well as covering significant TV adaptations. He discusses films made not only by some of our greatest filmmakers, artists such as Martin Scorsese, Jean Luc Godard, Alice Guy, Roberto Rossellini, Pier Paolo Pasolini, Lotte Reiniger, Carl Dreyer and Luis Buñuel, but also those looking to explore their faith or share it with lovers of cinema the world over.
  8. The Indian Express 75 Movies That Celebrate The Journey of India's icon

    The Indian Express 75 Movies That Celebrate The Journey of India

    Favs/dislikes: 4:0. a.k.a. Shubhra Gupta’s pick: Across 7 decades, 75 films that celebrate the journey of India. As a celebration of her platinum jubilee, here’s my movie map of India that I’ve drawn through 75 films. If you were to see these movies, reflecting as many themes and genres I have been able to include, you would get an idea of the journey of the nation, as it has lurched and progressed through these decades. Some films draw an unerring bead on intractable societal problems. Some show us just what was considered the acme of entertainment at the time they came out. Some are unabashed mainstream blockbusters. Some are strictly arthouse. And they all tell stories. Most of these films are in Hindi, because that’s the cinema I know best: I have also tried to include iconic films from other languages. Of course, there will be omissions. Please do overlook those, and take me up on the commissions. Here we go:
  9. Rohit K. Dasgupta & Sangeeta Datta's 100 Essential Indian Films's icon

    Rohit K. Dasgupta & Sangeeta Datta's 100 Essential Indian Films

    Favs/dislikes: 7:0. Although the motion picture industry in India is one of the oldest and largest in the world—with literally thousands of productions released each year—films from that country have not been as well received as those from other countries. Known for their impressive musical numbers, melodramatic plots, and nationally beloved stars, Indian films have long been ignored by the West but are now at the forefront of cinema studies. In 100 Essential Indian Films, Rohit K. Dasgupta and Sangeeta Datta identify and discuss significant works produced since the 1930s. Examining the output of different regional film industries throughout India, this volume offers a balance of box-office blockbusters, critical successes, and less-recognized cult classics. While many studies of Indian films focus on a single language’s contributions, this encyclopedia offers a comprehensive guide to productions from across the country in various languages, including Hindi, Bengali, Tamil, Malayalam, Assamese, Punjabi, Marathi, and English. 100 Essential Indian Films is an engaging volume that will appeal to both cinema scholars and those looking for an introduction to a vital component of world cinema. The movies are ordered alphabetically by their english title.

    RadiiChina's 100 Films to Watch to Help You Understand China

    Favs/dislikes: 4:0. The history of cinema has shadowed the history of modern China, turning a lens on more than a century of radical upheavals that have given form and substance to the People’s Republic as it stands today. In the spirit of exploring this vast and complex country through the layer of its big-screen output, RADII presents our list of 100 Films to Understand China. This is not a ranked list of 1-100 — we’re not trying to tell you the 100 “best” or “most important” films to come out of China. Our goal is to give a round and deep profile of the country through the medium of films made here in the last 100 years or so. This list is a syllabus of movies across the spectrum of time, space and quality that, taken together, provide a snapshot of today’s China, the forces that shaped it, and the directions in which it’s moving looking forward. We’re focusing primarily on films made in mainland China, since these come from a different cultural context and industrial framework than films made in Hong Kong or Taiwan. In assembling the list we reached out to filmmakers, producers, distributors, curators, critics, experts and industry insiders, who gave us an eclectic mix of mainstream titles, cult classics, and deep cuts. They provided these via the category headings that we provided and therefore do not necessarily endorse all of the selections you’ll find here. To make it easier to navigate, we’ve divided the 100 films up into 10 categories with 10 movies each: - Pre-war Shanghai; - The Mao Years; - Opening Up; - Indie & Arthouse; - Documentaries; - Wuxia; - Pop(corn) Culture; - China Today; - Bad Films; - Animation.
