  THE PURPORTED 1947 ROSWELL FILM   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Because of the dubious nature of the film and the questionable way in which it is being handled by those in possession of it, there is a tremendous potential for damage to the entire Roswell effort.
I might add, however, that if, against all odds, what I consider the impossible did occur, and this film actually turned out to be genuine, I would be one of the first to celebrate, as researchers would finally have in their possession the Holy Grail of evidence necessary to break the Roswell case wide open.
He reported that it was dated as 1947 vintage film stock and that it had been acquired from a former army photographer, Jack Barnett, who claims to have shot the footage and then, incredibly, to have stolen 15 canisters of film, without the theft having been detected.

  Quai des Orfèvres / Quai des Orfevres / Jenny Lamour / Henri-Georges Clouzot / 1947 / film review
The film's setting is split between the glamorous world of the French music hall and the drudgery of ordinary domestic life - a dichotomy which reinforces the sense of optimism and pessimism which are so vividly captured.
So much of the film's ambiguity, at least to me, seems to derive from the kind of complexity of circumstance and motivation that Clouzot may have felt that others were self-righteously ignoring, even denying, in their attempts to tidy up the national past at his (and others') expense.
Theirs is a loving relationship, and indeed the film ends with father and son in a public embrace after the latter pelts the former with a snowball outside the Martineaus' window.

  Walter Murch in Conversation with Joy Katz
In film, we use repetition (of similarly composed shots, of dialogue, of sound effects, etc.) not only for their rhythmic effect, but to alleviate ambiguity, whereas the eye, reading poetry, is constantly and automatically flicking backwards, often unconsciously, to re-examine the meaning of certain words.
In film, however, it is the editor who selects and assembles the images in a certain order with a distinct phrasing, and the director who suggests revisions based on what has been presented to him.
But each film is a universe unto itself, and everyone who works on it, director included, is trying to discover the laws by which this universe works: what kind of character, action, color, tempo, sense of reality, sense of humor suits the film.

 Alien Autopsy Film Review -- Nick Balaskas
I think their real worry is that if the AA film was real, the same "brush strokes" and style exhibited in the alien and human anatomies would be very compelling evidence for a universal creator God.
Apart from forwarding some alleged AA film scraps obtained from Ray Santilli through Roger Leir to technical experts of the National Film Board of Canada labs in Montreal, and other than the NFBC report, there is little more I can contribute regarding the AA film at this time.
It was noted that the film fragments had been sent from the UK under unprotected and ventilated conditions in a regular envelope.

 Filmtracks: The Aviator (Howard Shore)
Covering the cross-over era of 1927-1947, the film follows the exploits of Hughes in a movie industry during its transition from silence to talkies, as well as the aircraft industry's launch towards commercial airliners and WWII fighter planes.
Deeply wrapped in the culture of the times, the lengthy film provides a fine balance between the glamour of the period, the fancy of the technology and its flights, and Hughes' personal psyche during both his rise and fall.
The film does not dwell much on the final years of Hughes' life, during which his phobia of germs, among other psychological breakdowns, caused the icon to waste away penniless and alone.

 THE "ROSWELL" FILM FOOTAGE
The film segment shown on May 5th lasted about 25 minutes and was a videotaped copy of a number of the original spools.
The filming is obviously not continuous and it seems that different short time segments have been pieced together with some stages of the autopsy being omitted.
Although the present intention of those who own the film seems to be to make as much money as possible from it, it would be surprising if the footage was made with this intention originally.

The maker of Fire, Deepa Mehta, should be put to more controversy not for her loaded sexual content in her film but for her portrayal of India that has element of verisimilitude.
Her latest film 1947 Earth thus should not be viewed as a historical document of a pre-independent Lahore of 1947 but rather as a comment of the shape of a triangular love of two Muslim men (Amir-Rahul) and one Hindu ayah (Nandita) in a wealthy Parsi household.

However, the film refuses to follow the path of conventional escapist entertainment and finishes with a sequence which is equally dream-like but steeped in suffering.
Finally, Rossellini's film does not employ themes of, or pay hommage to, the war movie genre because, just as the war permeated every aspect of life, his film shows that life also permeated the realities of war.
The film critic Pauline Kael once called "the best boring movie ever made." My own experience with Visconti's movies, those sumptuous costume epics from the Seventies, left me convinced that he must have had a starched collar fetish.

 DER Documentary: Jean Rouch - Premier Film, 1947-1991
Rouch explains the sacrifices he made due to the producer that took on his film and the “monster” thus created; his footage was re-edited with a new ending, new titles, stock footage, “tropical muzak,” and a newsreel-style narration heavy on drama and highlighting the exotic.
Finally, the intelligence and insight of Rouch emerge as he “finishes” his first film: “This is not only an evocation of the beginnings of Jean Rouch, ethnologue and film director - it is his first film.
, just as he improvised the voiceovers of most of his other films.” The film transforms from a product of colonialism built around the commentary in which “you no longer see the images,” into a new form in which the film's true meaning is illuminated and the humanity of the subjects restored.

 Swedish Film: Victor Sjöström to Ingmar Bergman   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Bergman writes that the film is in fact about a journey and that his aim was that the "complicated camera movements" be unnoticed by the audience; "you can see the seems if you look closely" (Ingmar Bergman).
One of the first films that Arne Mattsson was to direct, Marie in the Windmill (Maria pa Kvarngarden, 1945) had starred Viveca Lindfors, it also featuring the daughter of Victor Sjöström, Guje Lagerwall, as well as Edvin Adolphson, Irma Christensen, Linnea Hillberg and Rune Carlsten.
As the film continues, Sjöberg uses statues and a lake during exterior shots of a garden to connect the characters to the landscape, which can nearly seem pastoral as the film begins to depend more and more upon the dramatic acting of Björk.

Of course other films were made that on the surface had nothing to do with Communism, HUAC, or even politics and politicians.
  These films have been interpreted as either justifications for cooperating with HUAC and “naming names,” or as allegories about the evils of with hunts and the courage of some people to stand alone against evil and unfairness against the Red Scare.
All these films gave their writers, directors, and producers the ability to deny that they were explicitly about the Red Scare, since one had to interpret them as such.
