  Film
Films shot by individuals and firms, and restricted to their private consumption are not included in these figures.
The Indian film archives, the largest non-western repository, is also among the most notorious at preservation; less than 10% of all films made before 1931 (some estimate as low as 1%) of Indian films still exist.
Indian films, a very large segment of the yearly film copy market, have an average of 300 prints in circulation per film because of the much larger size of cinema viewing halls, and the lack of "multiplexes" for shows on several screens.

 Harvard Film Archive: WWII on Film
The film focuses on Private Tamura (Funakoshi) as he faces tuberculosis, insanity, demoralization, murder, and cannibalism while he struggles to survive to the end of the war with his morality intact.
The film within the film is a wonderfully naïve melodrama about a young woman whose wicked stepmother forces her into a relationship with a wealthy suitor despite her avowed love for a strongman, who predictably comes to her rescue.
The film is an excellent example of director Raoul Walsh's ability to construct believable combat scenes, and it features his trademark impressive action sequences as well as spectacular jungle scenery.

 Blade Runner (1982)
Blade Runner (1982), rising director Ridley Scott's follow-up to his hit Alien (1979), is one of the most popular and influential science-fiction films of all time - and it has become an enduring cult classic favorite.
The film mixed in some western genre elements as well, and is thematically similar to the story in High Noon (1952) of a lone marshal facing four western outlaws.
The film's theme, the difficult quest for immortality, is supplemented by an ever-present eye motif - there are various VK eye tests, an Eye Works factory, and other symbolic references to eyes as being the window to the soul.

 Film Society of Lincoln Center
And gee, I bet it was a nice stroll down memory lane for Yoko to have a film crew camped on her doorstep re-creating the murder of her husband.
From an initially seriocomic setup the film shades into an unsentimental, emotionally and psychologically convincing look at the prickly dynamic between a mid-level literature professor (Philip Seymour Hoffman) and his unsuccessful playwright sister (Laura Linney) as they relocate their father (Philip Bosco) to an East Coast rest home.
But the film ultimately succeeds in having a paradigmatic reach, not least because of the pivotal role newly elected Texas governor George Bush plays in the final chapter of this story.

 glbtq >> arts >> Bisexuality in Film
These early silent films were not burdened by overt censorship, and filmmakers were free to represent sexuality in their characters' lives within the constraints of the mores of the period.
While the film was not a commercial success, it was a watershed event in Hollywood's depiction of the bisexual as a normal, complex human being.
The bisexual character in film is frequently represented as lacking commitment, someone who ultimately betrays his or her gay or straight partners or even his or her community.

 Film Comment
A battery of shrinks tag Hershey a textbook Freudian case (ãSheâs masturbating!ä exclaims one cigar-smoking psychoanalyst): her rapes are dreams, born from sexual abuse in early childhood and a latent desire to sleep with both her father and her teenage son.
The film hinges on Barbara Hersheyâs attempts to convince her psychiatrist (Ron Silver) that the rapes are real÷actually happen÷even though her attacker is invisible.
And the films are truly homages: at one point, Tscherkassky directly quotes Faces, Man Rayâs photograph of two parallel solarized profiles, while the ticking clock throughout the film suggests the Surrealist obsession with gears, machines, automatism, and their linkage with the subconscious.

 The Least Scary Option: Blade Runner and the Future City
Moving beyond noir, the film's depiction of the urban environment as largely populated by non-whites could be seen as playing upon the city's racial anxieties (although the racial mix is not quite L.A., with relatively few Hispanics).
The film's ruminations on the nature of memory (and the importance of photographs) evoke postmodern ideas about the mediation of life through technology and the elimination of "real" history.
Despite all this, the film is far from being unquestionably a visualisation of postmodern Los Angeles.

 La Balance / The Nark / Bob Swaim / 1982 / film review
Whilst the film has more than its fair share of violence, it is not, as some have commented, a bland rehash of the worst of American detective television.
Ironically, it is the film’s most brutal scenes which provide a greater emotional response than the intermittent sentimental scenes - for example, the deaths of passers-by caught in the cross-fire between crooks and cops moves the audience far more than Dédé's artificial-looking love scenes with his prostitute girlfriend.
The success of both of these films did temporarily increase the popularity of the crime thriller in the early 1980s, but this did not arrest the gradual decline of the genre, which virtually disappeared from French cinema before the end of the decade.

 The Moviezzz Blog: FORGOTTEN FILM: STARSTRUCK (1982)
This being the early 80’s, living in suburbia, it wasn’t likely the film, a new wave musical, was going to come to a theatre near me. But, I remembered it.
There are countless films by the same name, and it seemed this one had disappeared.
Jo Kennedy made a few more films in Australian (her last was in 2001) but none that ever made it here.

 Review, Analysis and Summary of "Gandhi" Film Attenborough 1982
While this film is not thematically driven since it is more of a visual biography, it does appear to want to reveal the extent to which the British were oppressive and unwilling to let go of their empire.
For example, the camera used by Martin Sheen’s character in the beginning of the film was quite old-fashioned and complicated compared to the one used later by Candace Berman’s character as she interviews Gandhi at the end of his life.
As the film goes on, however, and Gandhi rejects the English style of dress, he is effectively rebelling against the popular culture of his time.

 Harvard Film Archive:The Films of Yilmaz Güney
Yol was filmed clandestinely by Serif Gören from a Güney script that was smuggled from prison; the footage was then smuggled again to the director’s exile for editing.
Five inmates of a Turkish prison are granted a week-long furlough to visit their respective homes, where they variously encounter violence, military repression, feudal custom, and mistreatment of women that seem hardly better than the oppression of prison life.
The one cinema that attempted to screen the film was shut down after a bomb attack, lending further mythic status to Güney as a true revolutionary of the New Turkish Cinema.

 The Dark Crystal   (Site not responding. Last check: )
In 1982 a film appeared in theaters around the globe that was completely different from anything we had ever seen on the silver screen.
Their means to achieve a film like that was completely through puppeteering, an art both of them had brought to perfection over the years.
The quality of the film itself, the reference quality of the film’s presentation on this DVD and the bonus materials supplied are phenomenal, giving this film finally the proper home video presentation it deserved after all this time.

 Missing / 1982 / film review / Costa-Gavras / Jack Lemmon
Some of the images in the film are shocking and leave a lasting impression, particularly the harrowing night curfew and the horrific scene in the mortuary.
The film is based on the controversial novel by Thomas Hauser, recounting the real-life story of Charles Horman, who was alleged to have been the victim of United States intervention in the coup which took place in Chile in 1973.
Such was the public interest in the case following the release of the film that the US secretary state at the time was forced to issue an official denial of the allegations made by the film.

 Blade Runner (1982)
Both the film and the Philip K. Dick novel travel essentially the same road in telling the story of an emotionally barren man who hunts androids and comes to realize, ironically from creatures that only mimic humanity, what his own humanity means.
First of all the film has thrown out Philip K. Dick’s title which, admittedly, would be hard to fit on a cinema billboard, and in, to little point, comes the title of a little known 1974 science-fiction novel by Alan E. Nourse about a future where medicine was outlawed.
Ridley Scott treats it as film noir – outfitting Deckard in trenchcoat (there was to be the felt hat but Harrison Ford had just done Raiders of the Lost Ark [1981]) and Rachel, the femme fatale, in high-padded shoulders and a pall of cigarette smoke, while shooting seedy Chinatown settings and Venetian-blind shrouded bachelor’s apartments.

Steve (so self-referential a name (Steven Spielberg co-wrote and produced the film) that I'm not convinced it was intentional) and Diane (JoBeth Williams) hire a set of serious-minded spirit busters to help "clean" their idyllic house and rescue their daughter.
According to legend, Spielberg helmed the majority of the film after Hooper's footage was deemed unsatisfying, but that because of E.T. 's family appeal, Spielberg refused the credit, lest his directorial association with a disturbing supernatural story hurt E.T. 's success.
Certain sequences in the film are unmistakably his, and the mother figure presented here is one of his strongest.

 The Last Unicorn: 1982 animated film
During the 25 years since this little film was produced, it has wandered a road as long and bleak as the road of the title's heroine.
So if you want this film, order it from Conlan Press (www.conlanpress.com) — and over half your purchase price will go to the author, who has otherwise received nothing of this film's profits during its 25-year life.
It always was a charming little film, capturing much more of the beauty of the story than was usual for animated movies 25 years ago.

 Boulevard des assassins / Boramy Tioulong / 1982 / film review
Intrigued by the disappearance of the girlfriend of the man whose flat he is staying in, and by the mysterious death of an elderly woman who refused to sell her land to a development company, Daniel decides to investigate...
On the other hand, if the film is regarded as a subdued send-up of the kind of nonsense that gave French cinema a very bad name in the 1970s, then Boulevard des assassins does achieve something.
It is not a bad film as such, but it is easy to condemn it as a lacklustre TV movie (not surprising, since it is the only full-length cinema film made by Tioulong who was primary a TV film director).
