  1. Filmography of World History's icon

    Filmography of World History

    Favs/dislikes: 39:0. Global in scope and a practical tool for students and teachers of history, Deanne Schultz's "Filmography of World History: A Select, Critical Guide To Feature Films That Engage The Past" includes description and analysis of over 300 historical films. A companion to Grant Tracey's "Filmography of American History," this critical reference book selects movies that represent aspects of world history from the middle ages through the twentieth century. These films adopt as their subject a wide range of historical events, people and societies of Africa, Asia-Pacific, Europe and Canada, and Latin America. Over half of the entries provide extended analysis of the historical interpretation the film brings to the screen. "Filmography of World History" argues for the potential of feature films to teach us about the past and its reconstruction in academe and popular culture. The book provides several listings of the films, the one shown here is the cross referenced list by time periods. These are divided as followed on this ICM list: 1 - 19 Medieval (c. 600-1500) 20 - 50 Early Modern (c. 1500 - 1800) 51 - 95 Nineteenth Century (1801 - 1900) 96 - 286 Twentieth Century (1901 - 2000) 287 - 292 Contemporary Note: I have ordered the list chronologically by the years the films deal with within these groups using the years the author has provided. In cases such as WW2 films that deal with the same years, these are ordered alphabetically within these years. For more detail about the specific years and regions of each movie, check out the book and/or download this excel file I made: [url][/url]

    Le cinéma français des années de guerre: Essential French Films of the Occupation Period (1983)

    Favs/dislikes: 8:0. "Here is a list of the "essential" French films of the Occupation period, from Raymond Chirat's book Le cinéma français des années de guerre. The first part of the list are the films that have received lasting critical acclaim. The other titles listed in the second part (starting with #29: La fille du puisatier (1940)) are of lesser importance (according to Chirat) but were popular successes of that year." - Clemmetarey
  10. Keisuke Kinoshita filmography's icon

    Keisuke Kinoshita filmography

    Favs/dislikes: 7:0. Keisuke Kinoshita (木下 惠介 Kinoshita Keisuke, December 5, 1912 – December 30, 1998) was a Japanese film director. Although lesser known internationally than his fellow filmmakers such as Akira Kurosawa, Kenji Mizoguchi and Yasujirō Ozu, Keisuke Kinoshita was nonetheless a household figure at home beloved by audience and critics alike, especially in the forties through the sixties. He was also prolific, turning out some 42 films in the first 23 years of his career.

  14. The Female Gaze: Essential Movies Made by Women's icon

    The Female Gaze: Essential Movies Made by Women

    Favs/dislikes: 4:0. The term “male gaze” was first coined in the 1970s to describe what happens to all of us when the majority of our entertainment has been created by men. The viewer is forced to see female characters through a male lens, which distorts how all of us see women, and even how women see themselves. Typically, the keepers of film history and writers of film criticism have also been men. Yet, since the very birth of cinema, women have been making movies. So, what does the world look like through the “female gaze”? This is the question bestselling author and film reporter Alicia Malone poses, as she presents The Female Gaze―a collection of essays on fifty-two movies made by women. These films encompass various eras, nationalities, and stories, yet each movie is distinctly feminine. Joining Alicia Malone is a variety of established and aspiring female film critics, who write about their favorite film made by a female director. [url][/url]
  15. Encyclopedia of Indian Cinema (all films)'s icon

    Encyclopedia of Indian Cinema (all films)

    Favs/dislikes: 3:0. Written by Rajadhyaksha (senior fellow, Centre for the Study of Culture and Society, Bangalore) and Willemen (critical studies, Napier Univ., Edinburgh), this is a one-stop reference book on Indian cinema. Encompassing films in the major Indian languages, this revised edition (originally published in 1994 and updated to 1995) contains entries on directors, stars, producers, writers, and composers and lists birth and death dates, background information, and filmography. A chronological listing of films from 1912 onwards--complete with cast, credits, and plot synopses--is also provided; and black-and-white photographs appear throughout. In addition, a time line chronicles major milestones in Indian cinema, and a chart displays film statistics on both sound and silent films. An extensive bibliography and a name and film index rounds the volume out. No collection on Indian film can afford to be without this book; highly recommended for academic and larger public libraries. -Ravi Shenoy, Hinsdale P.L., IL Huge thanks to cronos for importing so many of these movies to ICM which made my job much easier. See also these language sublists made from this list: [url=]Encyclopedia of Indian Cinema (Hindi films)[/url] (667 films) [url=]Encyclopedia of Indian Cinema (Telugu films)[/url] (240 films) [url=]Encyclopedia of Indian Cinema (Malayalam films)[/url] (214 films) [url=]Encyclopedia of Indian Cinema (Tamil films)[/url] (213 films) [url=]Encyclopedia of Indian Cinema (Bengali films)[/url] (180 films) [url=]Encyclopedia of Indian Cinema (Marathi films)[/url] (97 films) [url=]Encyclopedia of Indian Cinema (Kannada films) [/url] (87 films) [url=]Encyclopedia of Indian Cinema (Gujarati films)[/url] (34 films) [url=]Encyclopedia of Indian Cinema (Assamese films)[/url] (33 films) and [url=]Encyclopedia of Indian Cinema (Other languages)[/url] (83 films) [u]Notes:[/u] Several films have two or more language versions resulting in different movie lengths. These often have separate Imdb IDs.Only one language version of a film exists on this list to not make it too huge and I've tried to select the most known one for this list of all the films in the book. In the sublists for the different languages the movie version for that language is included, which may not be on this list (but is still in the book). #369: The version of Shakuntala (V. Shantaram) in the book is the 122 minute version made in 1943. As this isn't on imdb, the 76 minute version released in the USA in 1947 is the one on this list. #442: The book has put up the 1949 version of '42 (A. Chakravarty), however this version was banned in many cities (but not Bombay). Only the edited 1951 version exists on imdb. #771: While Tero Nadir Parey / Beyond Thirteen Rivers (B. Saha) was made in 1961 it wasn't released until 1969. #774: The book suggests that Velugu Needalu / Thooya Ullam (A.S. Rao) was released in 1961 however imdb has put 1964 as its release year. #968: There's limited info on Uyyale / The Swing (N. Lakshminarayan) but the book puts 1969 as the release date for this, this is mistakenly put as 1964 on imdb. #1580: Mani Kaul's Idiot was made into a 180 minutes film and a 223 minutes mini-series. Only the mini-series exists on imdb.
  16. Football documentaries's icon

    Football documentaries

    Favs/dislikes: 2:0. Various documentaries about association football / soccer / voetbal / fussball / fútbol. - Includes shorts - Does not include series and miniseries (e.g. "A History of Football") - Official movies of the World Cup, Champions League etc. are not included (e.g. G'olé!) - "Official history" documentaries are not included (e.g. "Everton F.C Official History") - Straight up match clips, season reviews and goal compilations (apart from Lumiére's Football (1897)) are not included. - Commercials (e.g. the TMB Panyee FC commercial made by TMB Bank) are not included. Sadly, quite a few football documentaries (City! & The Impossible Job to mention two) are missing from imdb, so this list is some distance from being "complete". Still, if you have ideas for documentaries to add, write a comment. Many of these films are rather easy to find on youtube. However, I have not seen all and therefore do not know how accessible all the entries are, some seem rather obscure based on the number of votes on imdb.
