Rewatched Sam Fuller's "Shock Corridor" again. Very powerful and intense movie.

I watched this one y'day but had to FF some of the mental hospital sequences as they were not interesting enough .... Noticed that Criterion has added a few Melville films!

Raj Kapoor's 3 films are showcased on Criterion. Awaara, Shree 420 and Sangam (his first color film). 

 

Watched Sangam (after a long long time). Brilliant work by the great showman! Highlight is the acting by all 3 key players esp. in the final act. Will try to catch the other two later (watched them relatively recently - may bel like 2-3 or so years ago iirc)

I watched about 30 of them recently. made me simultaneously happy and depressed. one of the ATG filmmakers, but seeing 30 of them in too short a timescale can be a real downer.

 

I watched 3 so far -> Persona, The 7th Seal, and the Magician. Persona held up well, in fact I probably liked it more this time. The other two went down a bit relative to the impression that I had when I watched those years ago.

7th Seal is a bit overrated - still a great film, but it is not in my top 5 bergman movies. others like Wild Strawberries, Scenes from a Marriage, Cries and Whispers, Autumn Sonata, and the ATG Persona are better in my book. Some of his less known films like The Silence, Summer with Monika, Smiles of a summer Night, etc. are all excellent too

Film Noir in Color on the channel includes Leave Her to Heaven (1945) … There are also films like Inferno (1953) and A Kiss Before Dying (1956) … There is Desert Fury (1947) as well which is ok (or nothing special as a film) but a great example of the use of technicolor
