I Am Twenty (1964) aka Mne Dvadtsat Let aka Zastava Ilyicha

Russian - with optional English subtitles

Director: Marlen Khutsiyev
Cast:
Valentin Popov ... Sergei Zhuravlyov
Nikolai Gubenko ... Nikolai Fokin
Stanislav Lyubshin ... Slava Kostikov
Marianna Vertinskaya ... Anya
Zinaida Zinovyeva ... Olga Mikhailovna Zhuravlyova
Svetlana Starikova ... Vera Zhuravlyova
Lev Prygunov ... Second Lieutenant Aleksandr Zhuravlyov

Description:
A young man is forced to confront the realities of his future and choose a direction in which to go.
His friends are likewise brought up short by their limited opportunities for realizing their dreams.
They have jobs or schools waiting for them, which are things their parents didn't have, so their older relatives are puzzled by the youngsters' evident distaste for their choices.

This movie was originally filmed in 1962 as Zastava Ilyicha (The Ilyich Gate).
It was one of the first Russian films that reflected the younger generation's resentment of the older generation's ways.
The original title referred to Lenin's paternal name (his full name was Vladimir Ilyich Lenin).
Even after the decanonization of Stalin, Lenin still remained the icon for the old generation. "Ilyich" was often used as an affectionate term in Soviet iconography.
The film invoked Soviet premier Nikita Khruschev's sharp criticism.
Meeting the studio members, he said: "Do you want us to believe in the scene where a father doesn't know how to answer his son's question "how to live?" At the censor's insistence the movie was re-cut and released under the "apolitical" title Mne Dvatdsat Let (I'm Twenty) in 1964.
In 1991, the film was re-released and shown at the London Film Festival with ninety minutes of the original footage restored, resulting in a film which was 175 minutes long.

I really enjoyed [sign in to see URL] got a look at a post from my friend who is an interesting combination of scientist, doctor of chiropractic and earth mother type. She posted this dreadful, intricately detailed article which essentially dissected the film. I stopped reading after the first paragraph. What is this impulse some have to tear at a film like wolves at a hart? Ever heard of "suspension of disbelief?" Ack!

A bit predictable and slow in places.. but well acted and some interesting sub-plots.
Think "Lost and Delirious" except with Cackles style uniforms and set in pre World War 2 Great Britain.

The King (2005)

--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--

[sign in to see URL]

Cast:
Gael García Bernal ... Elvis
Pell James ... Malerie
Paul Dano ... Paul
Laura Harring ... Twyla
William Hurt ... David

A troubled man, recently discharged from the Navy, goes to Corpus Christi, Texas,
in search of the father he's never met.
Elvis (Gael García Bernal) is a 21-year-old fresh out of the US Navy.
He returns to his father's sleepy Texan hometown dreaming of some kind of reconciliation,
having been abandoned by the man as a child.
But Pastor David (William Hurt) has a new family - wife Twyla (Laura Harring) and teenage children
Malerie (Pell James) and Paul (Paul Dano) - and is in no mood to confront his past sins of the flesh,
so he callously rejects Elvis again.
This flippant act of cruelty triggers a series of events leading to family tragedy as Elvis tries to worm his way
into this seemingly perfect family.

Riot On Sunset Strip (1967)

--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--

[sign in to see URL]

Cast:
Mimsy Farmer .... Andy
Aldo Ray .... Lieutenant Walt Lorimer
Michael Evans .... Sergeant Tweedy
Laurie Mock .... Liz-Ann
Tim Rooney .... Grady
Bill Baldwin .... Stokes, reporter
Anna Strasberg .... Helen Tweedy (as Anna Mizrahi)

Description:
Meet the [sign in to see URL] Teenyboppers with their too-tight [sign in to see URL] the Pot-Partygoers - out for a new [sign in to see URL] new kick!

LA's civic leaders band together to do something about the invasion of longhair hippies and freaks on Hollywood's Sunset Strip.
The police captain (Aldo Ray) is caught between the business owners and his belief in allowing the kids their rights. But when his daughter (Mimsy Farmer) gets involved with the hippies, his attitude changes..
But really, don’t worry too much about about the plot in this low budget exploitation flick made within six weeks of the actual Sunset Strip riots. Because this film belongs to the 60s psychdelic, proto punk bands strutting their stuff at the legendary Pandora’s Box.
The Standells, The Enemies and the Chocolate Watchband pout and posture whilst snarling their songs to the wigged out crowd.
Great scenes of 1967 era Hollywood clubs and a scene that no longer exists.
Hippies, freaks, free-love, pot, acid and fuzzed out, psychedelic 60s rock and roll.


How can you go wrong with the great Aldo Ray and Mimsy Farmer in the lead roles..
Mimseys freakout dance whilst tripping on LSD is worth the price of admission all on it's own..

A veritable cheese-a-thon.. with some great 60's psychedelic garage punk thrown in for good measure...

One Got Fat (1963)
Completely insane 15 minute Bicycle Safety film..
Saw it on TCM and found it on Youtube (of course).
Proof positive that LSD was being used by film makers in 1963.

Bunch of kids with unusual names wearing monkey masks and tails ride their bikes to the park for a picnic.
One by one they get mangled by cars and trucks because they failed to ride safely.. only one kid survives to eat lunch in the park.
Never mind that all his friends are either dead or in hospital.
Narrated by Edward Everett Horton.. A must see. emoticon

Whale Music (1994)

--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--

[sign in to see URL]

Cast:
Maury Chaykin ... Desmond Howl
Cynthia Preston ... Claire Lowe (as Cyndy Preston)
Paul Gross ... Daniel Howl
Jennifer Dale ... Fay Ginzburg-Howl
Kenneth Welsh ... Kenneth Sexstone
Blu Mankuma ... Mookie Saunders

A Canadian production shot along the British Columbia coast, this is the story of a washed-up rock star who finds redemption.
It was adapted for the screen by the late Paul Quarrington from his own award-winning novel.
Desmond Howl (Maury Chaykin) is a faded music superstar who now lives a hermit's life in an out-of-the-way oceanside mansion.
Living off residuals from previous hits, Howl spends all his time and energy in his state-of-the-art home recording studio trying to compose whale music.
He hopes to write a symphonic piece, using the whales' own sounds, that will have the power to summon the marine mammals from the depths.
Howl is haunted by hallucinations and nightmares involving his brother Paul (Paul Gross), who died, apparently by his own hand.
Howl also has to deal with his ex-wife (Jennifer Dale), who meddles in his affairs.
He manages to shut out these interferences until a young runaway arrives at his doorstep.
Claire Lowe (Cyndy Preston) gradually captures the jaded musician's heart with her need for caring,
and their relationship becomes a metaphor for the tender music Howl is trying to create.

A Hard Day's Night (1964)



Simon Marshall: We'd like you to give us your opinion on some clothes for teenagers.
George: Oh, by all means. I'd be quite prepared for that eventuality.
Simon Marshall: Well, not your REAL opinion, obviously. It'll be written out for you. Can you read?
George: Of course.
Simon Marshall: I mean lines, ducky, can you handle lines?
George: Well, I'll have a bash.
Simon Marshall: Good. Get him whatever it is they drink, uh, coke-a-rama? [hands George some shirts.] Now you'll like these. You'll really "dig" them. They're "fab," and all the other pimply hyperboles.
George: I wouldn't be seen dead in them. They're dead grotty.
Simon Marshall: "Grotty"?
George: Yeah. Grotesque.
Simon Marshall: [to Dolly, the secretary] Make a note of that word and give it to Susan. It's quite touching, really. Here's this kid, giving me his utterly valueless opinion, when I know for a fact that within a month he'll be suffering from a violent inferiority complex and loss of status because he isn't wearing one of these nasty things! Of course they're grotty, you wretched nit, that's why they were designed! But that's what you'll want.
George: No, I won't.
Simon Marshall: You can be replaced, chickie baby.
George: I don't care.
Simon Marshall: If you don't cooperate, you won't get to meet Susan.
George: And who's this Susan when she's at home?
Simon Marshall: Only Susan Canby, our resident teenager.
George: Oh! You mean that posh bird who gets everything wrong?
Simon Marshall: Excuse me?
George: Oh, yeah. The lads frequently sit around the telly and watch her for a giggle. One time, we actually sat down and wrote these letters saying how gear she was and all that rubbish.
Simon Marshall: She's a trendsetter. It's her profession.
George: She's a drag. A well known drag. We turn the sound down on her and say rude things.
Simon Marshall: [horrified] Get him out of here! He's knocking the program's image!
George: Have I said something amiss?
Simon Marshall: Get him out!
George: Sorry about the shirts!
