 Film Rant
The original Japanese horror film, Kaidan, is comprised of four separate tales of horror, derived mainly from Japanese folklore.
One of the highlights of the film is when he is taking the piss out of the paintings on the room’s walls, as he describes the room’s décor, while waiting for spooky things to happen.
John Cusack knows this film is his show, and delivers a nice line in sarcastic washed-up writer, as well as looking genuinely terrified at what the room throws at him.

  Fantomas / Fantomas 70 / 1964 / film review
With its action-comedy format, the film is far nearer to being a parody of the popular novels by Marcel Allain et Pierre Souvestre, rather than a faithful adaptation, which is what Feuillade attempted.
Whereas Feuillade’s film is a chilling and atmospheric work which succeeds in conveying the menace of Fantômas, André Hunebelle’s version is little more than a conventional action comedy which is far more concerned with trivial comic stunts than characterisation.
In addition to these dubious casting decisions, the film is also marred by a rather obvious attempt to compete with the James Bond films, which were as popular in France at the time as they were elsewhere.

 Andy Warhol. Empire. 1964
The passage from daylight to darkness becomes the film’s narrative, while the protagonist is the iconic building that was (and is again) the tallest in New York City.
Warhol's clear delineation of the individual segments of film can be likened to the serial repetition of images in his silkscreen paintings, which also acknowledge their process and materials.
With their disengagement, lack of editing, and lengthy nonevents, these films were intended to be part of a larger environment.

 Steve Nottingham: The French New Wave
Their films could be shot quickly and cheaply with this portable and flexible equipment, which encouraged experimentation and improvisation, and generally gave the directors more artistic freedom over their work.
In a Hollywood film this would be avoided by either using a shot/reverse shot edit or cutting to a shot from a camera in a position over 30 º from the preceding shot.
Although the films represented a radical departure from traditional cinema, and where aimed at a young intellectual audience, many of them achieved a measure of critical and financial success, gaining a broad audience both in France and abroad.

 taoyue.com: Film Reviews - Becket (1964)
The whole film is framed as a flashback from Henry kneeling in front of Becket's effigy, talking to and about his late friend.
The film, translated from the French play, is a cornucopia of clever exchanges and incisive wit; at one point Henry gives Becket his ring with three lions on it, and tells him: "There, that's the Great Seal of England; don't lose it.
Two weeks into the film's limited rerelease run, there is still no "official film website" save the one produced in the UK during the 2002 restoration, and no cities or dates can be found from official sources.

The film had sold out in advance at McGill, but the students were so eager to see the breasts and sex scenes that they broke down the locked doors and stormed the cinema.
This film was followed by Sweet Substitute (1964), another film in which the prospect of marriage is treated by Kent’s male characters as a trap.

Banned in both England and the USA for years after its initial release, this is a stylish but wild teen exploitation film set in England about a young girl whose parents just "don't understand her." She ends up following in her wild young stepmother's footsteps on a road to ruin.
Beat Girl, one of the few feature films with a "beatnik" theme, is more exploitation than a serious representation of the "beat" lifestyle and philosophy.
The film is an example of how mainstream cinema interprets youth and explores subculture as an out of control menace devoid of law, morality and compassion -- -- minus the heavy moralizing of films like Reefer Madness.

 SCREEN IT! ARTISTIC REVIEW: A HARD DAY'S NIGHT
Released in 1964, the film also showed something that hadn't really been seen that often before - and that was something of a backstage look at the Beatles and how they acted when not performing or doing interviews (the only other way fans had seen them up to that point).
A commercial and critical hit, the film went on to garner two Oscar nominations - for Original Screenplay and Best Score - and is now being re-released with a newly restored print and soundtrack, just in time to coincide with the release of a new "greatest hits" compilation.
In a time when musicals were really just filmed extensions of their Broadway predecessors, Lester's approach at showcasing the songs - beyond the standard concert type performance that closes the show - was something few had seen before.

It also contrasted beautifully with the film’s concluding montage, edited by Ferro, which shows atomic bombs rhythmically detonated to the accompanying lyric, “We’ll meet again, don’t know where, don’t know when...”This was not the first time that a movie title sequence added narrative dimension to a film.
Yet before he started designing film titles the Cuban born Ferro (b 1935), who had emigrated to New York City when he was twelve years old - and quickly became a huge film fan and aficionado of UPA cartoons - had earned a reputation for directing and editing scores of television commercials.
In 1964 Ferro launched Pablo Ferro Films and created a landmark TV logo for Burlington Mills where he introduced multicolored stitching animation, which is still used by the textile giant.

 Classic-Horror Review of Devil Doll (1964)
Coppola, Roger Corman's assistant at the time, was allowed to shoot on the same sets as his boss, provided that he shot around Corman's schedule.
The essential problem with that particular entry was that the movie was too good for the jokes to come easy, but too boring to be really interesting.
It was one of those films that was probably safest confined to a room with Mike and the 'bots.
