  1985 Black Maria Film + Video Festival Essay
Seen from the perspective of the early Lumière films, these experimental films can be more fully comprehended for the specific ways they challenge or refigure traditional modes of visually expressing continuity and closure.
Yet whereas the intention of Méliès was to amuse, Gehr's film fundamentally questions the illusion of both movement and depth in cinema.
Using sensitive film stocks, early filmmakers were able to expand the shooting time beyond the crepuscule hour, and to capture the illumination from electric lights at night.

Filmmaker Richard Linklater spearheaded the Austin Film Society’s early efforts, and in May of 1986, AFS was incorporated as a non-profit educational organization.
The Austin Film Society’s accomplishments have been sustained by concerted volunteer efforts, the support of the community and local arts organizations, a strong Board of Directors, and the enthusiasm of Austin audiences.

 Peppermint Candy (KOREA 1999)
The film kicks off in the spring of 1999 as a sharp-dressed, but obviously distraught man stumbles upon a high school reunion of sorts that's taking place at a tranquil riverbank overlooked by a railroad bridge.
In the film's final, moving shot there is a sense that Yong-Ho is overwhelmed by the scene's beauty, yet prior to that moment, there is also the suggestion that he is experiencing a case of déjà vu.
As the sole anchor of the film, Sul Kyung-Gu is a magnetic presence, holding the viewer's attention throughout the narrative.

 THE BREAKFAST CLUB - DVD
Maybe it's because I was a geeky high-school senior in 1985, when the film was released, and I defiantly loathed anything that smacked of cool.
Or, it might be because The Brat Pack and their films have never really held any appeal for me. Most likely, though, it's because the film is better than I would care to admit, one of those mystical instances of the whole being far greater than the sum of its parts.
Meanwhile, the students' parents exist only on the periphery (I am reminded of the way in which the adults and parents in a "Peanuts" cartoon are represented by nondescript, garbled voices, as if they exist in some other universe), as literal vehicles to and from school, and as merely the source of their kids' angst.

 At-A-Glance Film Reviews: Ladyhawke (1985)
This may be the best "pure" swords-and-sorcery film ever made, which, sadly, isn't saying much...what few have been made are, for the most part, unstomachable.
Matthew Broderick is perfect, spewing hysterical yet eloquent soliloquies, and Michelle Pfeiffer plays the title character to a tee, in the first of her half human, half beast roles that seem to be a trend with her of late.
Unfortunately, the film drags in many spots; had the pace been picked up a bit, it would have been even better.

 Alan Parker @ Filmbug UK
The film was a musical pastiche of 1920s gangster films with an entire cast of children.
No stranger to controversy, his next film, Angel Heart, written and directed by Parker in 1986 and starring Mickey Rourke, Robert De Niro and Lisa Bonet, opened in the United States amidst a storm caused by the X rating initially imposed on it by the MPAA.
In 1985 he was honoured by the British Academy with the prestigious Michael Balcon Award for Outstanding Contribution to British Cinema, and in November 1995 Parker was awarded with a CBE by Queen Elizabeth II for services to the British film industry.

 Scifilm -- Reviews, NIGHT TRAIN TO TERROR (1985)
Thanks to the film's violence, gore and nudity, NIGHT TRAIN TO TERROR became something of an instant hit with fans of the cult and B-movie genres when it was finally released to video.
Some of the actors in the film did play their roles professionally, such as John Phillip Law as the mentally disturbed patient Harry Billings in the film's first story.
This film should not be recommended to serious horror fans, but recommended to those who enjoy anthology features and grade-Z favorites.

The film was given the title of Godzilla: King of the Monsters in 3D.
Because this film was planned to be as big as the original Godzilla film, they decided to recast Raymond Burr as Steve Martin, and the new scenes were shot.
The film probably would have been as big a hit in America as it was in Japan if New World Pictures did not screw over the entire film before releasing it in American theaters.

 Water (1985 film) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Water is a 1985 film scripted by Dick Clement and Ian Le Frenais, directed by Clement, and starring Michael Caine.
The film stars Caine as Baxter Thwaites as a Governor who has 'gone native' (similarly to his role in The Honorary Consul) and Billy Connolly as local biracial activist Delgado, supported by the last performance of Leonard Rossiter as Sir Malcolm Leveridge and one of the last performances of Fulton Mackay.
Despite being poorly received on its release, the film was noted for its script which addressed the confusion arising from the effects of colonialism on West Indian islands, spoofing the attitudes of both the locals and the representatives of Her Majesty's Government.

 'Spider' works its magic / Reissue affirms power of 1985 film
Manuel Puig's novel, on which the film is based, was published in 1976, and the story is set sometime earlier, in a prison in an unnamed Latin American country.
The film was made by Argentine-born Brazilian director Hector Babenco ("Pixote") and starred William Hurt and Raul Julia as apparently incompatible cellmates.
Hurt, one of the hottest serious film actors of the era ("Altered States," "Body Heat," "The Big Chill"), was nonetheless not the obvious choice for the role of an effeminate window dresser.

Yet, between an all around flawless film, an adventurous, fresh score, and (like with MacLean's experience with RETURN OF THE JEDI) it was at this film that a girl held my hand for the first time, this score was an emotional shoo-in for my favorite score.
Actually, I snuck a pinkie from her hand during the film, then proceeded to take another finger, then another until I had her whole hand, asking each time if it was all right that I had taken her fingers.

 1985 Retroactive @ The Film Experience
I started watching the Oscars is 1983 (for the 1982 film year) but 1985 is the first year in which awards season build-up started to interest me. I specifically remember reading an article in People about the huge number off contenders in the Best Actress field and wondering "who will it be!?".
Though the film did kick off the interest in Michelle Pfeiffer it was only really a seed planted (which did not really sprout until 1988/1989).
In 1985 I was also heavily invested in anything involving the Brad Pack: Ally Sheedy, Demi Moore, Rob Lowe, Andrew McCarthy...
