  Z / Costa-Gavras / 1969 / film review
At the heart of the film is a complex criminal investigation, but you don’t have to follow all the twists and turns of that investigation to appreciate the film.
The beauty of this film lies not in its detail – and there is certainly a lot of that – but in its overall construction, in its use of unusual editing and photography, reinforced by an astonishing soundtrack, to totally engross the viewer.
The film was directed by the Greek Constantinos Gavrás (known also as Costa-Gavras), son of a Russian emigrant who suffered harassment as a suspected communist when he settled in Greece in the 1930s.

  Yu Hyun-mok's School Excursion (1969)
From the film's very opening, Yu establishes the gap which exists between the children, sailing towards the modernity of the city, and their parents who are left behind on an undeveloped island.
Yet in other ways the film undermines this promise, when we discover that the older sister of one of the boys is working as a servant for a family in Seoul (improbably enough, at the very house in which he is invited to stay).
When it is revealed in the film's climactic moment that she has actually boarded the train with her son, the film seems to hint that the comparatively primitive life on the island (and the reunion of the nuclear family) can provide a better upbringing for the couple's child than the industrialized city.

 I Am Camera: Film Freak Central Interviews Documentarian Albert Maysles
With their 1969 breakthrough film Salesman, a looks at the lives of four door-to-door bible salesmen, the Maysles brothers, David and Albert, became the forerunners of the "direct cinema" style of unblinking documentary filmmaking.
But in making that first film I had designed a camera that allowed me to work independently of my brother in that there wasn't a cable connecting us: he could go where the best sound was and I could shoot where the best angles were.
There are 25,000 students of film in America, apparently, and documentary is a large part of that curriculum whether it be the study of existing documentary or the creation of new ones.

 Film 'Marooned' Hit Cape with Hurricane in 1969
The 1969 film "Marooned" featured a hurricane hitting Kennedy Space Center, hampering NASA efforts to save three astronauts (Richard Crenna, James Franciscus and Gene Hackman) trapped in a malfunctioning orbital lab.
By contrast, the storm in the film had relatively minor destructive effects, mostly serving the narrative function of making a rescue mission to the stranded astronauts more dangerous while impairing communications from ground control.
The film made extensive use of actual Cape locations for both the early scenes of business as usual at ground control and the climatic chaos that followed.

 Easy Rider (1969)
Easy Rider, one of the first films of its kind, was a ritualistic experience and viewed (often repeatedly) by youthful audiences in the late 1960s as a reflection of their hopes of liberation and fears of the Establishment.
The iconographic, 'buddy' film, actually minimal in terms of its artistic merit and plot, is both memorialized as an image of the popular and historical culture of the time and a story of a contemporary but apocalyptic journey by two self-righteous, drug-fueled, anti-hero bikers eastward through the American Southwest.
The film's title refers to their rootlessness and ride to make "easy" money; it is also slang for a pimp who makes his livelihood off the earnings of a prostitute.

The film would be at a loss without her beautiful, flawless singing voice.
In 1969, the film version was released, and given the huge success of the stage production, Twentieth Century-Fox expected the same sort of response from movie audiences.
Didn't care for the film, with Streisand battling stuffy Walter Matthau for the spotlight, but the soundtrack is everything the movie was not: pert, perky, bubbly, sensual,...

 Joey the Film Geek: Reviews - "The Italian Job"
Supposedly, despite this being a remake of the 1969 film, the two films have very little in common.
Film critic Roger Ebert pointed out that the only thing they have in common is that they both utilize Mini Coopers for a key heist.

The film was banned in Great Britain until 1968 and released in a censored (and re-dubbed) version in the US.
Kubrick's last film in the 60s was the most successful science fiction film of the decade with a story that spanned all of human history with giant leaps (from pre-historic cave-dwelling apes jump-cutting ultimately to futuristic outer space travelers to Jupiter).
His film, based on the novel by Arthur C. Clarke, was the majestic, Super Panavision 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968) with its spectacular visuals, landmark special effects, classical music, psychedelic, light-show ride (that appealed to late 60s 'tripping' viewers) and the memorable, flawed HAL supercomputer (with the uncredited voice of Douglas Rain).

 U B U W E B :: On Directing Samuel Beckett's Film
He ate lunch with us each day and talked about how differently films were made back then-with no script, starting with an idea about a character in trouble, a series of improvisations and gags to get him out of trouble, finis -but never a direct comment on this one.
About the fourth or fifth day, with the sequence at the window, sidling up in his greatcoat and scarf to pull aside the gauze curtains with his own poetic combination of grace and awkwardness, he caught on that there was more here than had previously met his inner eye.
One of them called the film "vacuous and pretentious," the exact two things it wasn't, and even told us how stupid we were to keep Keaton's back to the camera until the end.

The Wrecking Crew, released in 1969 and starring Dean Martin and Elke Sommer, is the fourth and final film in a series of American comedy-spy-fi theatrical releases featuring Martin as secret agent Matt Helm.
As with the previous three movies (The Silencers, Murderers' Row and The Ambushers), the film is based only loosely upon Donald Hamilton's 1960 novel of the same title and takes great liberties with the plot and characters, being developed as a spoof of the James Bond films.
Also appearing in the film are Nancy Kwan as Yu-Rang, Tina Louise as Lola Medina, and Nigel Green as the villainous Count Contini.

Although the film does not say what becomes of the new couple Jorgos and Marie, the Greek's chances of becoming integrated in this society look slim in view of what happened before.

His book, like the film, "Once Upon A Time...When We Were Colored" is a spellbinding chronicle of one fl family's American saga in the 20th century.

 Kes (1969) - Channel 4 Film review
At the centre of Loach's film is a remarkable, utterly unaffected performance from Bradley, who was at the time of filming himself a Barnsley schoolboy with no acting experience.
Loach's cinematic style is already fully formed here, with the film's naturalistic, semi-improvisatory feel, a profoundly humanist attitude, and a pervading sense of doom leavened by flashes of wit, principally the wonderful football sequence in which PE teacher Glover fulfils his Bobby Charlton fantasy.
A deeply affecting film that is gripping all the way from drab start to shattering climax.

Hitchcock changed the script shortly before the beginning of the filming and the distributor Universal forced a different ending to the one preferred by Hitchcock.
The cast in fact was full of renowned international film stars (Jade, Piccoli, Noiret), whose previous successes had come primarily in France.
As the film centered around a spy in the French intelligence service, it was very logical to have a predominantly-French cast.
