This Week in Rankings

RainingintheMountain2.jpg

The end of the year came and went since the last rankings update, which meant a handful of round-up posts here at The End: Books (and Other Words), Film Discoveries, and Endy Award Nominations.

At Seattle Screen Scene I reviewed The PostThe Last JediThe Disaster ArtistPitch Perfect 3DownsizingHostiles, and Goldbuster. We also recorded a couple episodes of The Frances Farmer Show: one on The Last Jedi and one a 2017 Year-in-Review.

At Frame.land, I wrote about the films of Chang Cheh and contributed a brief review of Private Eye Blues. At Mubi, I launched a column on Contemporary Chinese Cinema. The first two are on 2017 in Chinese Film and the pair of Youth and The Thousand Faces of Dunjia.

I wrote some brief year-end stuff at other sites as well: Double Features for Mubi, Cinematic Moments (Claire’s Camera) and Underseen Movies (Our Time Will Come) for Frame.land, and about On the Beach at Night Alone for InReview Online’s Year in Review. This year we of the Seattle Film Critics Society gave out our first official awards, which named Get Out Best Picture and somehow didn’t nominate Baahubali: The Conclusion for anything at all.

Over at The Chinese Cinema, I’ve been rewatching all of Hong Sangsoo’s films in chronological order and reviewing them along the way. So far I have reviews up for The Day a Pig Fell Into the Well, The Power of Kangwon Province, Virgin Stripped Bare by Her Bachelors, On the Occasion of Remembering the Turning Gate, Woman is the Future of Man  and Tale of Cinema. I’ve revised all of my previous writing about Hong Sangsoo and indexed it, and done the same for my writing about King Hu. I also reviewed Evan Yang’s Sun, Moon and Star and Johnnie To and Wai Ka-fai’s Running on Karma. My The Chinese Cinema List at letterboxd is up-to-date with 434 titles as well. And I also made a list of Shu Qi’s movies.

If you like what I do here or at Seattle Screen Scene, The Chinese Cinema, or anywhere else, please consider donating at my kofi page. Every little bit helps.

2017 Endy Awards

These are the nominations for the 2017 Endy Awards, wherein I pretend to give out maneki-neko statues to the best movies, performances, etc of that year in film. Awards for many other years can be found in the Rankings & Awards Index. Eligibility is determined by imdb date and by whether or not I’ve seen the movie in question. Nominees are listed in alphabetical order. The winners will be announced live on twitter during the Academy Awards ceremony on March 4. And the Endy nominees are. . .

I’m starting a new thing as well this year. For awhile I’ve been writing down lines from movies in the Notes app on my phone. Sometimes they end up in reviews, or as standalone letterboxd blurbs, and sometimes they don’t. I’m going to keep one for every year, and publish it at the end, without context. Here is this year’s, which began only in June.

A cat is never on the side of power.

15 years later, some wolves still survive.

Oh Doris, you think everything is treason.

Let’s keep praying

Stop being negative. It’s all in your head. Think of something more cheerful. Can’t you be normal?

Folks like us don’t have a clue.

Don’t go to weird places.
What’s that supposed to mean?

You need tissues for your issues.

Killing Japanese takes energy. Have some congee.

All you people are good for is poetry and stealing.

See you after the victory.

Things in this world can’t stand scrutiny.

Isn’t working to survive a drag?

Nothing is fun. You just work and die. That’s your life.

       Aphrodisiac flour made from the tears of a hundred year old pig forced into heat.

Film pickled in sea snake soup.

If a grinning toothless goat is what you want, you can find one anywhere.

White-brow monk is a turtle son of a bitch.

Nice guys, but . . . poorer.

One of the main things we began to discover was that our theoretical calculations did not have a strong correlation with reality.

Renoir!

Awful disappointing weather today.

If I was bored I’d go out and buy something, like cheese, or quails’ eggs.

No Christine, that’s a frog. Bears wear hats.

The idlers want to shudder at the thought of dangerous work.

Parasites are another excuse

This was a Dracula indeed

Find the true meaning of Christmas! Money! Money! Money!

It’s the spirit of the actors that counts. The interest they have in their director.

As last by as the sun and the earth exist, we can always survive.
You are amazing.
We all are.

There are gatherings and separations in life. Don’t feel sad for temporary partings, because the final victory is coming.

And here are the photos of text I took throughout the year.

This Week in Rankings

Since the last rankings update I’ve been at work over at The Chinese Cinema, editing a whole lot of old reviews and standardizing their formats and such. So far I have complete indices of all my writing on Pantheon directors Chang Cheh, Hou Hsiao-hsien, Jia Zhangke, Johnnie To, Tsui Hark and Edward Yang, along with Zhang Yimou (Less Than Meets the Eye). I also have a review there for Chang’s The New One-Armed Swordsman. Over at Seattle Screen Scene, I have reviews up for Kiyoshi Kurosawa’s Daguerrotype, Takashi Miike’s Dead or Alive, Pere Portabella’s Vampir-Cuadecuc, Yorgos Lanthimos’s The Killing of a Sacred Deer, and Sean Baker’s The Florida Project, along with a conversation about Todd Haynes’s Wonderstruck.

This Week in Rankings

BTS20061

Since the last rankings update, I launched a new website, which will be the home of all my Chinese Cinema-related writings, called The Chinese Cinema. I think it looks nicer and is easier to read than WordPress, but there’s a lot of work to be done with it. I also set up a ko-fi.com page as a fund-raiser. If you’d like to help support my writing about movies on the internet, I’d very much appreciate it.

The Vancouver International Film Festival has just come to an end and we at Seattle Screen Scene were there in force. There’s an index of all our coverage here. In addition to several festival reviews, since the last update I also wrote about Ex Libris: New York Public LibraryGood TimeThe Legend of the Naga PearlsIngrid Goes WestLeap!In this Corner of the WorldThe AdventurersOnce Upon a Timeand Shock Wave. And Melissa and I dusted off The Frances Farmer Show for an episode on the book and film adaptations of True Grit. Finally, I wrote an ode to the greatness of Sammo Hung over at Frame.land.

A Top 100 Films of All-Time

It is time once again for a Top 100 Films of All-Time list. As I’ve done for the last few years, the first ten spots on the list comprise a hypothetical Sight & Sound-style ballot. We had an on-going project related to this on The George Sanders Show, that will now be based at Seattle Screen Scene. This top ten is presented here in chronological order. The remaining 90 films were randomly selected from a consideration set of 1400 films, which excluded films that made my Top Tens in 2012201320142015 and 2016.
