  1. Guillaume Evin's The 101 Historical Films to See's icon

    Guillaume Evin's The 101 Historical Films to See

    Favs/dislikes: 2:0. from the french "Les 101 films historiques à voir - De la Guerre du feu à Zero Dark Thirty" and expanded from the 2013 version "L'histoire fait son cinéma en 100 films: de La Guerre du feu à Démineurs". History has always made its cinema. This has been the case since the advent of the latter at the turn of the 20th century. The 7th Art takes hold of a historical phenomenon to restore it (rarely), magnify it or mishandle it (sometimes), revisit it (often), thus taking some liberties with the reality of events. From Prehistory to the war in Iraq, from Cleopatra to Napoleon, from the fall of the Roman Empire to that of the Ancien Régime, certain eras, certain events, certain figures have been brilliantly captured over the decades by the discerning eye of filmmakers from around the world (DeMille, Eisenstein, Kubrick, Visconti, Lean, Kurosawa, Renoir, Annaud, Mankiewicz, Tavernier, Leone, Malle, Spielberg, Malick, Cimino, Coppola, Bertolucci, Melville, Losey, Bigelow... ), while other moments have been purely and simply forgotten if not obscured. From The War of Fire to Zero Dark Thirty, here is an overview of the 101 best historical films, where we meet the intimate and the monumental, the derisory and the grandiose, the austere and the spectacular. Note: The book is divided in the following sections: Prehistory, Antiquity, The Middle Ages, Modern Times and Contemporary Times with subset sections within them. PS: If anyone can get ahold of the book, please send me a pm with the name of the missing movie.

  4. Jean Serroy's Les 1000 Films Culte de l'Histoire du Cinema's icon

    Jean Serroy's Les 1000 Films Culte de l'Histoire du Cinema

    Favs/dislikes: 3:0. University professor emeritus and film critic, Jean Serroy takes the reader through the history of cinema which, in 120 years of existence, has never stopped reinventing itself, going from silent to talkies in the early 1930s, from black and white to color, from small format square screens to the spectacular dimensions of ever larger screens, from film and cellulose nitrate to 4D. This book thus proposes to return to the 1,000 cult films that have marked our era and which, each, have punctuated the life of generations of yesterday and today. Hundreds of films from all genres and all countries are presented, decade by decade, according to a selection based on objective data such as the annual admissions rankings, in France and abroad, the major festivals such as Cannes and Venice but also on major celebrations such as the Oscars and the Césars or even on the notoriety consecrated by critics. So many criteria that have allowed cinema to establish itself as a new, unique and irreplaceable art.

    Pardon le Cinéma vol.2: 100 films à voir d'urgence, des classiques aux pépites

    Favs/dislikes: 3:0. [b]Pardon the Cinema, vol. 2![/b] The team of the first French podcast on cinema does it again with a new opus. New films, new classics to (re)discover, new nuggets lovingly unearthed, new great moments of the 7th art... But the objective is always the same: to wake up your screens with another cinema, an in-depth selection that travels across all continents and all genres, from 1907 to 2021, from Chile to Japan, from documentaries to action films... [b]100 unknown, forgotten or marginal films... to see urgently! [/b] "Pardon le Cinema" is Victor Bonnefoy (director, screenwriter and creator of the Youtube channel InThePanda), Sophie Grech (press officer and screenwriter), Marc Moquin (editor-in-chief of Revus & Corrigés), Simon Riaux (critic cinema in Le Cercle on Canal+ or on the Large Screen website), Arthur Cios (journalist for Konbini) and Alexis Roux (cinema journalist): a team that talks about cinema in an irresponsible but respectful atmosphere and brings together more than 100,000 listeners per month.

  7. BFI's 100 Bible Films's icon

    BFI's 100 Bible Films

    Favs/dislikes: 1:0. From The Passion of the Christ to Life of Brian, and from The Ten Commandments to Last Temptation of Christ, filmmakers have been adapting the stories of the Bible for over 120 years, from the first time the Höritz Passion Play was filmed in the Czech Republic back in 1897. Ever since, these stories have inspired musicals, comedies, sci-fi, surrealist visions and the avant-garde not to mention spawning their own genre, the biblical epic. Filmmakers across six continents and from all kinds of religious perspectives (or none at all), have adapted the greatest stories ever told, delighting some and infuriating others. 100 Bible Films is the indispensable guide to this wide and varied output, providing an authoritative but accessible history of biblical adaptations through one hundred of the most interesting and significant biblical films. Richly illustrated with film stills, this book depicts how such films have undertaken a complex negotiation between art, commerce, entertainment and religion. Matthew Page traces the screen history of the biblical stories from the very earliest silent passion plays, via the golden ages of the biblical epic, through to more innovative and controversial later films as well as covering significant TV adaptations. He discusses films made not only by some of our greatest filmmakers, artists such as Martin Scorsese, Jean Luc Godard, Alice Guy, Roberto Rossellini, Pier Paolo Pasolini, Lotte Reiniger, Carl Dreyer and Luis Buñuel, but also those looking to explore their faith or share it with lovers of cinema the world over.

    The Indian Express 75 Movies That Celebrate The Journey of India

    Favs/dislikes: 4:0. a.k.a. Shubhra Gupta’s pick: Across 7 decades, 75 films that celebrate the journey of India. As a celebration of her platinum jubilee, here’s my movie map of India that I’ve drawn through 75 films. If you were to see these movies, reflecting as many themes and genres I have been able to include, you would get an idea of the journey of the nation, as it has lurched and progressed through these decades. Some films draw an unerring bead on intractable societal problems. Some show us just what was considered the acme of entertainment at the time they came out. Some are unabashed mainstream blockbusters. Some are strictly arthouse. And they all tell stories. Most of these films are in Hindi, because that’s the cinema I know best: I have also tried to include iconic films from other languages. Of course, there will be omissions. Please do overlook those, and take me up on the commissions. Here we go:

    Marie Claire's The 69 Best Porn Movies of All Time

    Favs/dislikes: 8:1. "Watching pornography is a normal extracurricular activity for many women. Yet, the storylines in most porn flicks center on a delivery guy/repair man showing up unexpectedly (eye roll). Why should you sacrifice a good plot for great sex? Get you some porn that can do both. The best and most arousing porn films are often the ones that involve drama, relationships, and, ya know, things other than HD penises on the screen. But sometimes they can be hard to find. (Pun intended...?) In an effort to be helpful and sex positive, we've rounded up the best full-length porn movies—with ethical standards, feminist values, pretty cinematography, and good music to boot." - Mehera Bonner [b]The Best Classic Porn Movies[/b]: 1-17 [b]The Best Artsy Porn Movies[/b]: 18-32 [b]The Best Softcore Porn Movies[/b]: 33-37 [b]The Best Parody Porn Movies[/b]: 38-59 [b]The Best Porn Movies with Classic Tropes[/b]: 60-73 Note: "Taboo" and "I Am Curious" duologies and XConfessions trilogy are considered one entry thus 73 movies.
  14. Rohit K. Dasgupta & Sangeeta Datta's 100 Essential Indian Films's icon

    Rohit K. Dasgupta & Sangeeta Datta's 100 Essential Indian Films

    Favs/dislikes: 7:0. Although the motion picture industry in India is one of the oldest and largest in the world—with literally thousands of productions released each year—films from that country have not been as well received as those from other countries. Known for their impressive musical numbers, melodramatic plots, and nationally beloved stars, Indian films have long been ignored by the West but are now at the forefront of cinema studies. In 100 Essential Indian Films, Rohit K. Dasgupta and Sangeeta Datta identify and discuss significant works produced since the 1930s. Examining the output of different regional film industries throughout India, this volume offers a balance of box-office blockbusters, critical successes, and less-recognized cult classics. While many studies of Indian films focus on a single language’s contributions, this encyclopedia offers a comprehensive guide to productions from across the country in various languages, including Hindi, Bengali, Tamil, Malayalam, Assamese, Punjabi, Marathi, and English. 100 Essential Indian Films is an engaging volume that will appeal to both cinema scholars and those looking for an introduction to a vital component of world cinema. The movies are ordered alphabetically by their english title.
  15. Richard Crouse's Son of the 100 Best Movies You've Never Seen's icon

    Richard Crouse's Son of the 100 Best Movies You've Never Seen

    Favs/dislikes: 2:0. Son of the 100 Best Movies You’ve Never Seen is the eighth book by Canadian author and film critic Richard Crouse. Published in September, 2008 by ECW Press, the book is a sequel to the author's best selling 2003 book The 100 Best Movies You’ve Never Seen. The new book's check list of the best overlooked and under appreciated films of the last 100 years caters to fans of offbeat cinema, discriminating renters and collectors, and movie buffs. Each essay features a detailed description of plot, notable trivia tidbits, critical reviews, and interviews with actors and filmmakers. Sidebars feature quirky details, including legal disclaimers and memorable quotes, along with movie picks from a-list actors and directors.
  16. Paste's The 100 Best Film Noirs of All Time's icon

    Paste's The 100 Best Film Noirs of All Time

    Favs/dislikes: 4:0. Since its coining in 1946 by French critic Nino Frank, the term “film noir” has been debated endlessly: Is it a genre? A subgenre? A movement? A trend? A commentary? A style? For the purposes of this introduction, let’s call it a response. We think of noirs as urban stories, but that’s not always the case—for every L.A. and N.Y.C.-set saga, there’s a small, heartland tragedy. We think of a never-ending, rain-soaked night—sunlight replaced with neon and nocturnal reflections, the optical trickery of mirrors and shadows—but in contrast, the days of noir scorched its characters. We admire its heavily stylized approach—exaggerated camera angles, tension-crafting mise-en-scène, flashbacks, deep focus and trademark shadows—but also its neo-realist and documentary-like experiments. However (un)conscious a reaction, noir resonates to this day, with several neo-noir cycles beginning with the Cold War era through Gen X and the millennials. And while a healthy share of neo-noirs make our list, the classic period remains the most telling—context is critical. Then there are the sub-classifications within the subgenre: proto-noirs, foreign noirs (like the British “Spiv” cycle), neon noirs, and, of course, neo-noirs. We’ll start with the following 100 titles. Some 70 years after the term “film noir” was first uttered, take a trip through the screwed-up terrain of the mid-century psyche, with all its sex, lies, and crime scene tape. Let’s get going—don’t say we didn’t warn you.
