Triptych of Lyndsay Anderson films:

"If"
"O Lucky Man !"
"Britannia Hospital
"

They all star Malcolm McDowall and are for their time, top table for thinky subversion and dark satire on Britannia, carrying on in the same vein where Joe Orton's plays and Kubrick's Clockwork Orange left off.

Nick Roeg's "Man Who Fell To Earth" ( not just because Bowie is in it playing himself but it is a very good treatment of Walter Tevis's novel of the same name and poses pertinent questions about the whole alien disclosure scenario - way ahead of its time). The whistle this film blew back then is just being heard today I think. Nick Roeg doesn't do interviews as a rule so it's all down to you the viewer.

The Australian "Picnic at Hanging Rock" even though it is fiction masquerading as fact from start to finish, highly atmospheric and unnerving, offering no easy answers with lots of subliminal sexual repression and suggested paranormalia/ UFOlogy. Haunting theme music by Georgie Zhamfir.

On threads like these someone will inevitably identify themselves with some brilliant film you never thought of and you think ... OF COURSE !!! Why didn't I put that one down ?!!!

Let's see...

In my opinion the best movie ever: "2001,A Space odyssey".
The Jodorowsky movies.
The Tarkovski movies,especially "Stalker".
"Persona" by Bergman.
And the movies mentioned by cosmic tramp.
Plus quite a few others I can't remember right now

I must say, "2001" slipped through the cracks there, first saw it at my local cinema when I was about 7 years old and didn't understand it , spent rest of my life re watching it on DVD and understanding a bit more each time. I just think both Arthur C Clarke and Hollywood ruined it with both the written and filmed sequelisation spin offs (2010 etc). I think a story like that deserves to be left well alone.

Interesting fact : Legend (and biographies) has it this is the film which inspired the song "Space Oddity" when a certain David Jones when to see it at his local picture house in 1969. Having done so, he then promptly changed his stage name to from David Jones to David Bowie ( as per the protagonist David Bowman in the film).

Which brings up another conundrum ... how often can you watch a good a film like that over and over until you've watched it to death ? Knowing there never has been and never will be another film like it ? In musical terms I must've played the Ziggy Stardust album hundreds of times as a teenager...I can't even 'hear' that album at all now and so it would not be on my top ten desert island playlist. The same with 2001. If I try and read "Catcher in the Rye" now I cringe. My toes curl. Yet at 18 years old that book was my "bible".

Thusly can a good film (or book or album) ultimately be "worn out" through overuse ? Or are they intended as transient one-off experiential encounters to reside in the subconscious forevermore ? Discuss.

I thought 'black narcissus' , 'the seventh seal' and 'the night of the hunter' were very atmospheric films

Kubricks 'Spartacus' was great

A film I would like to see again is "Network" (1976) about the news broadcaster who "loses it" live on TV and tells America what it's really all about. Very dangerous for its time and certainly topical, especially with the current gagging of Alex Jones.

Here's one DIFers can help me with , saw it once and found it a bit of a life changer, have not been able to find it since. "Shady" - Antony Sher, Patrick McNee all about a man who can do remote viewing and gets caught up in machinations of PTB with it. Highly subversive, came out maybe late 1980's early 90's. Try as I might I cannot find this film anywhere - not on You Tube, nor CEX shops databases, no mention of it either on a general web search. It seems to have vanished entirely. Either it's been deleted, Mandela effected out of existence or something (or I myself was subject to an MK Ultra remote viewing encounter when I thought I saw it !). There is a 2012 lesbian film called "Shady" but that's not the one.

Does anyone else remember this film ?

John Sclesinger's Marathon Man (1976) is in a class of its own. Cold war thriller, Dustin Hoffman, Roy Scheider and Laurence Oliver's finest ever acting role playing an unnervingly convincing post war Nazi Camp Kommandant, Zeld relocated in USA. Horrendous torture scene. Says something too about (flourishing) post war American-Germano-Nazi relations, operation Paperclip etc.

Heat (1984)... they recently remade it starring Jason Statatatatham and it was painful to watch... I didn't...

But the original starring Burt Reynolds was never released on DVD and had become almost impossible to find even before then, I really don't get why...

I think it's about all what's left of it now, and you must grab the rest of it piecemeal through the Youtube site...
