Now on HBO Max. The film is fine, but the opening credits are the best part!

Awful. So typical of the ridiculously heavy-handed message films that win the short-subject Oscars.

If you lived in Papua New Guinea during the '70s, this should be compelling. Otherwise, um....

The Erik Satie-like piano score was a noticeably terrible match with the story. I felt jarred, whenever it returned.

I can't find the film to verify, but multiple websites say this actually was directed by Barbara Hammer.

I watched this because it's prominently featured in the '90s film "Another Girl, Another Planet."

Thoroughly delightful, hyperstylized portrait of a cattle auctioneer in just 3.5 minutes.

If you think being a Hendrix fan means you will enjoy this, think again. Really lame.

This is one of the most grueling films I've ever endured, and it's only 53 minutes long. I have nine minutes left at this moment, and I'm counting every second until it's over. Interesting in concept, but unbearable to watch.

Interesting tale about British imperialism in India, with an embedded metaphor about two idle noblemen who are addicted to playing chess with each other. Two sets of power games. Richard Attenborough plays the chief British figure. Hot tip: I was surprised to stumble across this on Amazon Prime. BUT...it's only there under the Indian title! Search for that instead.

Crudely animated, depressing depiction of the life cycle.

Silent...B&W...the sped-up play of light and shadow in various summery settings.

I was really impressed with most of the film, but it really started to go south in the last 45 minutes or so. It just felt like Lonergan was concocting artificial arguments between all the characters, just for the sake of drama.

I submitted runtimes for about 17 of these films and imported the data over here. Only eight films left without runtimes now.

Cut-off at the end, maybe? Too bad -- it was about to turn great!

Phew. Has there ever been another non-X-rated film with so much talk of urination?

The Australian jargon was fun in small doses, but the excessive repetition of certain phrases like "pommy bastards," "point Percy at the porcelain" and "don't come the raw prawn" really grew old.
