 The Pentagon's Film Festival - A primer for The Battle of Algiers. By Charles Paul Freund
The first part of the film depicts the campaign of terror launched by the National Liberation Front (FLN, called "the organization" in the film) against French colonial rule in 1956.
The film leaves out the insurrection that was taking place in the rest of Algeria, which makes it impossible for viewers to judge how the FLN finally succeeded in driving out the French, much less what was wrong with French military strategy.
Yet the film treats the Algiers terror campaign as a failure: Its later bombings and shootings are made to appear increasingly desperate and strategically pointless.

When I first saw the film years ago I dismissed it as pretentious, but in a recent re-encounter FILM surprised me with its directness and simplicity, and with the strength of its imagery, which reminded me of Magritte's surreal portraits.

 Pierrot le fou / 1965 / film review / Jean-Luc Godard
The film's title is a reference to the nickname of the famous post-World War II gangster Emile Buisson, who has nothing to do with the film whatsoever (other than Pierrot being the name by which Marianne refers to Ferdinand).
In the film, France is as drawn to Italy as Ferdinand is drawn to Marianne, in both cases precisely to posit the gap between them that even love can't bridge.
Raoul Coutard cinematographed both films, but while Les carabinièrs is (purposefully) in newsreelish fl-and-white--to keep its portrayal of war ugly, unsettling and not in the least bit inviting--Pierrot le fou is among the three or four most gorgeous films in color ever made.

The film is set 2 days before the 25 anniversary of the death of his family.

 Film: January 03, 2002
The film’s legacy has not been lost on Canada’s current crop of high-profile auteurs; in the collection of interviews with horror demigod Cronenberg, Cronenberg on Cronenberg, the man behind Dead Ringers recalls that David Secter “had somehow hustled together a feature film… that was intriguing because it was completely unprecedented.
The film is, in a nutshell, a romance between two young men studying at U of T. Secter had fallen in love with another student at the time and the film is an autobiographical take on their bond.
The fact that a film with this plot line (however subtle it may be) was made in a country with virtually no film infrastructure to speak of in the pre-sexual revolutionary mid-’60s is pretty amazing, to say the least.

 "A Line of Sight: American Avant-Garde Film Since 1965" by Paul Arthur
Avant-garde film wasn’t considered an art form, but a kind of pathological condition, itching to infect commercial cinema — or “bourgeois culture” as a whole — and transform it from the inside out.
In keeping with that, he defines avant-garde film forensically: if a movie is “financed, completed, exhibited, and promoted” like an avant-garde film, then it is one.
While avant-garde film is certainly “anachronistic” in some sense — defections from film to video are the rule, not the exception — in-person screenings just reflect market demand.

By the summer of 1965 it is obvious to even the most casual of viewers that Lenny Bruce is a broken, dying man.
Filmed in 1965 at San Francisco's Basin Street West (in what would be his penultimate live appearance), the show consists of Bruce's responses to the accusations and allegations stemming from his multiple arrests for obscenity and the trials that followed.
I know the circumstances under which the film was made, and the circumstances of Lenny's life and career at that time.

 On Point : The Battle of Algiers - 1/16/2004
Gillo Pontecorvo's 1965 film, "The Battle of Algiers," was a celluloid textbook for 1960s revolutionaries as it recreated the 1950s Algerian independence struggle against French colonials.
The film was banned in France, instigated riots and theater bombings in Europe, and was required watching for America's Black Panthers.
Now, a new print of the film has been re-released, and it is being screened at the Pentagon for insights into armed insurrection.

 The Austin Chronicle: Film Listings
That has as much to do with the film’s script, courtesy of Edward Burns (The Brothers McMullen) and Scott Frank (Minority Report), which includes not one but two show-stopping "hopes and dreams" speeches, neither one of which makes you long for anything but a quick demise for those doing the speechifying.
Sporting a blond wig and the sort of shrill vocal mannerisms that fairly cry, "Bad nerd!" his character’s presence in the film is never adequately explained, and the excuse given — "He just showed up one day" at the hinterlands oil station — is perplexing.
The whole film, in fact, is more than a tad surreal, shot through with images of flowing sand dunes and the sense that all is not what it seems.

The other way in which the film differs from almost all other Vietnam movies is that it makes no attempt to address the political aspects of the war.

 At-A-Glance Film Reviews: Thunderball (1965)
Thunderball was originally supposed to be the first Bond film, but legal disputes made the producers shy away from it.
Thunderball restores competence to the character, questionable in the prior entry Goldfinger, but is in other respects an inferior imitation of its style and mood.
It wouldn't be so bad except that the climactic finale, a prolonged underwater battle which was supposed to be the film's highlight, is painfully slow and borders on dull...and the sped-up film of the final struggle with the villain is laughable.
