 The Manchurian Candidate (1962)
It can be categorized within many film genres - it functions as a horror film, a war film, a science fiction film, a fl comedy, a suspense-thriller, and a political melodrama (with additional segments of romance and action).
The mood of this pseudo-documentary, satirical film masterpiece (from prolific veteran television director Frankenheimer) is paranoic, surrealistic, dark, macabre, cynical, and foreboding - these elements are combined in a traditional, top-notch suspenseful thriller framework with a nail-biting, Alfred Hitchcock-like climax.
Although the film initially failed at the box-office and its plot was considered far-fetched, it anticipated the American obsession with conspiracy theories in the early to mid-60s.

 What Ever Happened To Baby Jane? (1962)
One of the film's posters asked the question: "Sister, sister, oh so fair, why is there blood all over your hair?"
A grotesque "Baby Jane" Hudson (Davis at 54 years of age), a former vaudeville child star, and paralyzed invalid sister Blanche (Crawford) from a mysterious, career-ending car accident (for which Jane was blamed but never charged), also a former movie star, live together in a gloomy, crumbling mansion in Los Angeles.
She croaks, "I've Written a Letter to Daddy." [The scenes of her attempts to recapture her former glory are reminiscent of Norma Desmond's similar efforts in Billy Wilder's Sunset Boulevard (1950).]

Filming in England provides little geography and motel-hopping lifestyle that was so prevalent in the novel.
By the end, Humbert is reduced to a broken shell of a man, and it does not really matter if we approve of his behavior or not: he is still sympathetic, as much a victim of his own demons as Lolita herself, or her hapless mother.
Compare that to sanctimonious pap like American Beauty, a film that nearly demands that we "understand" its main character, even daring suggest that disapproving of his infatuation with a teenaged girl is akin to the homophobic excesses of his sadistic, one-dimensional ex-Marine neighbor (apparently ugly stereotypes are perfectly OK when applied to conservatives).

Critic Andrew Sarris wrote that it is "one of the most compassionate films ever made" in its depiction of severely malformed people (a pair of Siamese twins, microcephalics, armless and legless folks, dwarves, a bearded lady, and others) and their backstage camaraderie.
It's part of the film's brilliance that the lines between normal and abnormal, us and them, and even morality and immorality, are constantly blurred and reversed, establishing an unpredictable interpretive pattern that challenges age-old stereotypes about health and beauty, deformities and evil.

Cape Fear is a 1962 film about an attorney whose family is stalked by a criminal whom he helped to send to jail.
Before the scene was filmed, the director suddenly asked a crew member: "Bring me a dish of eggs!" Mitchum rubbing the eggs on Bergan was not scripted and Bergan's reactions were real.

Others think that a film should be faithful only to the art of film, refashioning the story in its own terms.

A simple story makes for a moving and effective film in Agnes Varda's "Cleo From 5 to 7", a French film from 1962 that traces a pair of hours in a beautiful French singer's life as she waits to find out if she has cancer.
As she walks the streets of the city, she begins to learn more about herself and the world around her and she comes to terms with what her future just might be.
I enjoyed the film quite a lot, although I was dissapointed to find out that Criterion's DVD does not offer the opportunity to learn anything more about the film or French films in general, as the supplemental features are, well, zip.

From the mid-1970s on, Teshigahara's directing output on feature films decreased as he concentrated more on documentaries, exhibitions and the Sogetsu School, eventually becoming the grand master of the school in 1980.

 The Film-Makers' Cooperative 1962 -
The Charles therefore incorporated films and film making into an alternative sense of family and community through freedom and equality (two fundamental ideas in the very groundwork of the arts and counterculture, according to Banes).
The film's popular appeal is limited by its openly homosexual interest -- Kenneth Anger's actors are pretty, biceped Adonises, his props self-consciously phallic, his fascination with the cyclists' storm trooper sashes and chain belts too often a wayward taste for camp cruelty.
Because Mekas filmed it from the center, his viewer too becomes a victim of endless beatings, shouted commands, debasing personal inspections, unnecessary cleanups, ritualistic requests "to cross the white line, sir!" and worst of all, the destruction of all repose.

In Schneider’s final film before her tragic death, she stars in dual roles as both Lina, Baumstein’s wife, and Elsa, the German refugee recalled in the activist’s flashback who helped save him from the Germans.
The film features Romy Schneider (in a reprisal of her ingenue role as Princess Elisabeth of Austria) as Ludwig’s cousin, with whom he engaged in a passionate, platonic relationship despite his equal passion for men, and Trevor Howard as famed composer Richard Wagner, who took advantage of the king’s patronage to advance his own career.

Ovchinnikov roots the film in an impassioned string orchestral lamentation, and slowly builds to the large, dissonant, pervasive orchestral tremolos signifying the tension between the Bolshevik workers and Rada partisans.
Tarkovsky’s diploma film was the first of three co-written with Andrei Mikhalkov-Konchalovsky and scored by Ovchinnikov.
The music cues are surprisingly varied given the film’s length, and the radiance of a city seen through a child’s eyes finds a musical analogue in parts of Ovchinnikov’s score.

 Hollywood Gothique: Dr No (1962) Film Review
Unlike later Bond films, which would amp up the action to incredible levels, the film version of DR. NO seems somewhat toned down from the book, which ended with Bond forced through a labyrinthine torture maze, just to see how long he would last (the sequence ends with Bond fighting and defeating a giant squid).
Also, because DR. NO is the first 007 film (but not the first 007 book), references to previous adventures had to be deleted (upon arriving in Jamaica, Bond recalls his encounter with Solitaire, the girl from LIVE AND LET DIE).
In both the book and the film, Bond is forced by M (Bernard Lee) to give up his favorite gun in favor a new Walter PPK, but most film fans are unaware that Bond ever had a previous gun.
