Post Re: Recommended Readings: Reviews, Writings and Rants

Am currently reading this book of interviews with Rohmer. Utterly delightful thus far and I am only two interviews in. The interviews are in chronological order so the two I've read are pretty much exclusively about the Six Moral Tales and his involvement with Cahiers etc.
Anyway, lots of great stuff but wanted to share this bit on shooting in color vs. b&w.

This question comes right after a discussion on how the six films are all shot in a collection of formats... 3 in B&W, 2 in 16mm and osme in color and so on and Rohmer's explanation on why he chose to shoot Maud in B&W.
Quote:
Graham Petrie: So you don't agree with directors like Antonioni who say it's no longer possible to make films in B&W and that all films should be in color?
ER: I would agree that nowadays the normal thing would be to make films in color, and it might seem a bit archaic to film in B&W. And yet I don't agree really. I think that man has a very strong feeling for B&W; it doesn't just exist in photography, it's there in drawings and engravings too -- painters created pictures in color, but they also worked in B&W for drawings and engravings, in order to create a certain effect. As a result I think that B&W is now accepted by the public, and so I think that people are wrong when they say that B&W is impossible nowadays. It's a very curious phenomenon. I think that B&W will always exist, even if it's true that it will be an exception and the use of color will be standard. However, it's quite certain that at the moment filmmakers aren't particularly inspired by color; most films in color have the same banal look about them. for me color has to contribute something to a film, if it doesn't do this, I prefer B&W for, despite everything, it gives a kind of basis, a unity, which is more useful to a film than color badly used.

GP: What would you say color contributes to La Collectionneuse and Le Genou de Claire?
ER: I didn't use color as a dramatic element, as some filmmakers have doe. For me it's something inherent in the film as a whole. I think that in La Collectionneuse color above all heightens the sense of reality and increases the immediacy of the setings. In this film color acts in an indirect way; it's not direct and there aren't any color effects, as there are for example in Bergman's most recent film, his second one in color, where the color is very deliberately worked out and he gets his effects mainly by the way he uses red. I've never tried for dramatic effects of this kind, but, for example, the sense of time -- evening, morning, and so on -- can be rendered in a much more precise way through color. Color can also give a stronger sense of warmth, of heat, for when the film is in B&W you get less of a feeling of the different moments of the day, and there is less of what you might call a tactile impression about it. In Le Genou de Claire, I think it works in the same way: the presence of the lake and the mountains is stronger in color than in B&W, it's a film I couldn't imagine in B&W. The color green seems to me essential in that film; I couldn't imagine it without the green in it. And the blue too -- the cold color as a whole. This film would have no value for me in B&W. It's a very difficult thing to explain. It's more a feeling I have that can't be reasoned out logically.

Well. I do agree that some of Wolfson major programme sections have been questionable to say the least, in the past few years, but other than that it feels to me like the author has that kind of critic's tunnel vision that is a consequence of the luxury of having the access to all (important?) film festivals year round. I mean, where else would I be able to see Norte, the End of History? It's not like that will ever see a regular release anywhere. I mean, Neil Young regarded Kim's 3-Iron and Denis' L'intrus as worthwile discoveries in Rotterdam in 2005 - in fact, as the best day he's ever had at the fest, movies that had already played at Venice and Toronto and the like - I wouldn't be surprised that now, as a seasoned critic who goes to Cannes and Venice yearly he wouldn't have regarded those as discoveries in Rotterdam, rather just ignore that they're on the programme at all since he'd already seen them. Having said that, I do remember when looking at this year's programme before going I was glad that this was the first time in years I could only attend for a few days - it didn't look that great - but then again, discovering new things at Rotterdam is always something that requires taking risks and wise planning, and sometimes that can go wrong.

Post Re: Recommended Readings: Reviews, Writings and Rants

because of TIFF retrospective, watching a bunch of Pasolini for the first time and writing about them. This is my first review for Mamma Roma. I like the ideas of the review even though it's all over the place and a bit under-developed but I'm proud of it

http://www.soundonsight.org/mamma-roma/

Excerpt:

Quote:
In many ways, Mamma Roma represents and embodies the spirit of the Gemini. The Latin word for twins, our understanding of the Gemini emerges from mythological and spiritual history as it does from more popular astrological games. In art, the Gemini is represented literally as disparate figures like the fraternal twins born of the same mother and different fathers in the myth of Castor and Pollux (another allusion to promiscuity as it ties to spiritual embodiment). In the tarot, the Gemini is often depicted by Adam and Eve, both made of the same flesh, inseparable and creators of life. The image is also familiar to that of Rome, the city founded by two young boys, Romulus and Remus — Rome is the city born from the Gemini. Artistically, though, these literal images of two parts are ultimately representations of the contradiction that exists within all of us, but is perhaps more heightened in others. It is the presence of a dominant and submissive personality, the alpha and beta of our spiritual well-being. The image of the ‘twin-force’ pairs powerfully with the inherent conflict that comes when individual meets ideology, the natural contradiction of existing as oneself as well as a larger whole, be it a community, a religion or an economic theory.

Nice.
Quote:
They know, too, that the emotion of the spectator can be aroused, channelled and controlled through such intricate, multi-levelled procedures. It is a difficult process to describe and explain, because it is not necessarily tied to — although it interacts powerfully with — specific filmic characters and what they do in the story.

It is an aesthetic ideal — purely plastic emotions, feelings aroused through the shapes, structures and patterns of form — that attracts many filmmakers, because (as philosopher Suzanne Langer discussed in her crucial 1953 book Feeling and Form) it lines up all art forms under the umbrella of music, the most abstract yet also most emotional art.
I think about this a lot. I know it works, but I want to know how!

I like Jones generally, but it's difficult to see what he's arguing for, here.

I think the essentialist tendency Jones points out exists. I also think most auteurists deal with the problem relatively early in their life. One cool grace note does not a good director make. I thought we all knew this.

And there are some blatant mischaracterizations. Sez Jones "To take Bazin’s objections seriously would be to admit that Hitchcock and Rossellini and Ray operated under constraints and conditions..." If such was the case, Sarris certainly took the objections seriously: "To look at a film as the expression of a director's vision is not to credit the director with total creativity. All directors, and not just in Hollywood, are imprisoned by the conditions of their craft and their culture."

Even when Jones is giving props, he's not totally correct. He sez that auteurists "didn’t just argue for its inclusion among the fine arts, but actually stood up, waved its flag, and proclaimed its glory without shame," but this is not really an auteurist achievement. People were eager to claim ownership of cinema as an artform from its inception. <i>Battleship Potemkin</i> and Eisenstein were revered long before the politique came around. Auteurism in America's primary achievement was rescuing Hollywood directors from film history, often at the expense of the Euro-Artistes (Bergman, Fellini, etc) that were dominating film conversations when Sarris first started polemicizing.

It seems to me that ragging on auteurism isn't particularly interesting, either, especially since contemporary auteurism seems to be simplified into nothingness. "If...all that auteurism represents is an emphasis on directors, this so-called theory should be banished for its banality."

A great review of The Devil, Probably by Mireille Latil-Le-Dantec, translated by Ted Fendt, originally published for Cinématographe in 1977:
Quote:
Tender gestures are, then, the only recourse of powerless speech or of the compassion for evil we provoke ourselves and for which we are at once guilty and innocent. In an admirably lit scene following the half-lit shot of a table covered with leftovers, Charles consoles Alberte, whose shoulders are shaking with sobs, by patting her back and drying her eyes with the corner of the tablecloth, as one does for a child. Over rational explanations (which he gradually erases from dialogue that already had very little) and explanations implied through "performance," Bresson always prefers the silent eloquence of a gesture (a shrug, the evasive movement of a hand) and the flash of a glance.

Yeah, that was a good read even though I didn't have the problems with the film that you did. The innate ridiculousness you speak of did work for me comedically but also in highlighting a point you articulate really well.

I guess the word silly is perhaps used here as pejorative but I don't mean it that way. And am with you on the coda.

Excellent. I agreed with you almost all the way, yet was surprised to see you hated it. I found its absurd contradictions more amusing than annoying. I can't see that Seligman was oppressing her in the conversation, though. That's like saying disagreement = bullying. (Sorry, Corrie in-joke.) Of course, that makes the ending even more ridiculous...
