Purely Joyful Movie!
Nice effects though.
An old-fashioned movie made with new-fashioned finesse.
It's simply great fun, a winsome film and an occasionally over-the-top luxury fantasy that never flags.
For the first 30 minutes of this movie, I wondered what the hell its makers were playing at. True, there is a satisfying sequence wherein printing machinery moves in time to Beatles' music (thank you, Walt Disney), but the film does not really engross our interest until the introduction of Eric Porter's character. At this point, everything seems to improve: The script becomes bright and witty, and even the sets, camera angles, photography and editing suddenly become more interesting. Of course, what really gives the move genuine flavor, is Eric Portman's performance. But it's sad to report that Miss York is not up to her usual high standard, Perhaps the blame resides with director Jack Smight whose over-fondness for close-ups is not always flattering. I can just see Smight arguing with the photographer, Chris Challis, right now: "Who cares if it's not flattering! It will look good on TV – and that's all that counts!" No wonder producer Jerry Gershwin declined a credit!
If only there was an Academy Award for Best Use of Ore Carts, Béla Tarr would be the proud owner of an Oscar for Damnation. There is simply no other film whose depiction of ore carts holds a candle to Tarr's masterful portrayal of dozens of carts suspended on a cable, traversing the landscape and incessantly gazing down upon a small Hungarian town.Some industry insiders say the Academy may have been convinced to create the award had the mining community rallied behind the film. But at the time, Hungarian miners thought it was more important to jump on the "revolt against the Soviets" bandwagon than to lobby for increased recognition of the mining implements so long unappreciated by the Hollywood establishment.Naysayers claim the Academy would not have given in to public pressure, citing the animal welfare community's failed campaign in support of a proposed Oscar for Best Performance by Stray Dogs, which experts agree would have been easily won by Damnation and its motley pack of canines.However, it is generally believed that this was not a reflection of an aversion to expanded award offerings, but a result of the powers that be buying into the notion that because Hungary was a communist country when Damnation was filmed, the dogs featured in the film were not unwanted strays, but the people's dogs, owned and loved by millions, and therefore not sufficiently disadvantaged to merit special honors.Other proposed awards that garnered significant grass roots support include Oscars for Most Atmospheric Droning, Best Poorly Synched Music, and Original Use of Indoor Campfire, as well as a Guinness Record for Most Rain Per Minute Filmed, none of which ultimately came to be.But of all the awards not awarded, the Oscar for Best Use of Ore Carts is the one that will stand out in people's minds when they inevitably recall the ever-vigilant unsung heroes of one of the wettest land-based films ever made. If that makes Damnation sound like an uncommon sort of movie living in its own cinematic world that most filmmakers never visit, that's because it is, and that's a good thing.
An 18 or so year old girl Lucy Honeychurch and her chaperon Charlotte a middle aged spinster cousin go on a trip to Florence. There in a pension they encounter Mr Emerson and his son George. Mr. Emerson trades rooms with the women so that they might have rooms with views.George falls in love with Lucy and steals a kiss from her. Her chaperon sees this happen and returns Lucy at once to England. By chance Mr. Emerson and George rent a cottage near the Honeychurch's house... by this time Lucy is engaged to someone else. However true love wins out.I didn't care for the women's lib part of it (also the exaggerated era prudishness is cartoonish)....Lucy has spunk and George is the perfect milquetoast husband...."I want a wife who speaks her mind thinks on her own blah blah blah...." This turns it into a typical modern PC chick flick....no wonder it was popular. That was the "plot" and raison d'etre of the film other reviewers are looking for.I did like the beautiful scenery and wonderfully recreated world of the Edwardian era. It is a pretty movie to watch.OK watch
"For the love of Mike, why don't you go to sleep," an annoyed Max Fleischer asks Koko the clown, which is a kind of strange since Max just drew the character a few minutes early. Why draw him and then go right to bed, and then complain when the clown makes noise? It doesn't make sense, but sets up the gag for the nine-minute silent cartoon: Max doing what he has to, in trying to get some sleepFirst, Max, in his pajamas, gets back up and draws an isolated mountain area and puts Koko on top of a steep mountain. "That will keep you busy for the night," says the real-life somewhat nasty cartoonist to his subject.The cartoon really gets wild from that point with guest appearances from Mutt and Jeff, and other "stars" of the day as Koko experiences one adventure after another.from the "Cave Of The Winds" to Goliath chasing him all over.This insane cartoon was one of the "From the vault" extra features from disc 3 on the "Popeye The Sailor Man Volume One DVD set.
