Diabeł AKA The Devil (Andrzej Żuławski, 1972)



Quote:
During the Prussian army's invasion to Poland in 1793, a young Polish nobleman Jakub (Leszek Teleszynski) is saved from the imprisonment by a stranger (Wiktor Sadecki) who wants in return to obtain a list of Jakub's fellow conspirators. Following his mysterious saviour across the country, Jakub sees the overall chaos and moral corruption including his father's death and his girlfriend's betrayal. Being apparently demented by what he has seen, he commits a number of seemingly motiveless and gory killings.

NOW, for those of you who are unable to acquire this movie on your own, I have the movie on my computer right now, this very minute. my plan so far is to put up on a dropbox on Thursday and hopefully that will work out. if any of you have any better ideas, please lmk. but in any event, I do have it in my possession so this is do-able.

as for any older Corrie members, I hope you'll forgive me for choosing any movies that are a bit closer to the canon than previous Class Trips.

:up:

as taken as I was by Possession, I have yet to get around to the remainder of Zulawski's oeuvre. technically I did see On the Silver Globe but at the time found it too confusing to be rewarding. so rewatching that one might have to be priority for me.

Silver Globe is more of an interesting mess, than a good example of Zulawski. He's pretty consistently great, though. L'Amour Braque is a particular favourite of mine, and Third Part of the Night and Most Important Thing: Love (if you can over look the horrible dubbing, find a subtitled version if you can) are really good as well. The only one I haven't liked much is his last film Cosmos (although it's compellingly, if not also a little too deliberately, weird)

I was absolutely sure I'd seen that one a year or two ago, but reading the synopsis it doesn't seem at all familiar. So whatever it was I imagined I watched, it probably wouldn't help much in regards to the recommendation you're looking for. I can't imagine it not being worth seeing though, since he's one of those directors I think it is worth being a completist with.

I'm no Zulawski expert (I've only seen this, Possession and L'Amour Braque), but I found it's near-constant yelling a bit too obnoxious to work for me (in contrast, I think Possession and L'Amour Braque use their histrionics much more effectively). However, Sophie Marceau looks amazing in it, if you're looking for legitimate cinephilic reasons to watch it.

Also, I might hit you up for that dropboxing, as my videostore doesn't carry it and I'm paranoid about streaming.

Anybody else watch this yet? I think I liked it quite a bit, but would like to watch it again in the near future, as I'd like to get a marginally better handle on Polish history and also my computer has been having bizarre playback issues since the last Windows 10 update, which caused a lot of bleeping and blooping that may have overstated how much fuzz guitar was actually on the soundtrack. (Maybe the next update will fix this issue. *laughs uneasily*)

Having seen the film I can confirm that no tails sprout from candles so those fooled by the poster should be wary (although a man does turn into a dog and dogs have tails).

Probably my biggest takeaway is how organic Zulawski is able to make this yelling and screaming to the story and use these histrionics to build an atmosphere of despair (not a super deep observation, as yelling and screaming seem to be his jam(s)). My other major takeaway is how if you squint really hard, the actress playing the nun looks a bit like both Isabelle Adjani and Sophie Marceau (leading me to believe that this too is Zulawski's super-high-brow thematic jam). I'm also pretty big on the movie's chilly, dreary visuals and hurtling and spiraling camera moves.

naw man, that nun was totally Anne Wiazemsky's twin, no squinting needed.

anyway, that was one god damn exhausting movie but very potent. this gives some good background on the political context although even without that knowledge, I still got the gist of it (I think): political repression leading to madness and separation from all that makes one civilized.... you become disoriented, unmoored from your own self, who knows what person you'll become? now that I know the real-world context, I gotta say Zulawski was one angry fucker. but that's why we love him.

Thanks for the link, that's quite a bit of depth. (The site looks neat too.) I think I sussed out something similar as you from my viewing, but I'll add that the way the hero was handled by the man in black brought to mind the way intelligence case officers and secret police handle their contacts.

Speaking of people who look like other people, that guy looked like somebody else and it was driving me crazy because I couldn't remember who.

can't help you on the man-in-black resemblance, sorry.

but I thought the Faust-ian part was well done once you realize how little agency the protagonist had. it's not as if the "trade-off" was happening at an equal level. like maybe if he had known what was in store, he would have resisted being saved? but then that's the horrifying part, realizing how powerless one is to the world around them.

I finally watched this. Anyways, I liked it for the political context which Ox and Rock have been discussing. What I got was that political regression made Jakub uncivilized and violent. I also found its absurdity to be reminiscent of Jodorowsky. On the other hand, the acing was a bit cheesy and over-the-top, but the good aspects to the film trumped this. I can see myself revisiting it in the future. Thanks for picking it, Ox.

7/10

that's just a feature, not a bug, of the Zulawski movie. one retrospective was even titled "Hysterical Excess".

at least now you're prepared for Possession.

Sure.

The only thing though is that I'm pretty bad at and paranoid about piracy and wouldn't want to make anyone jump through hoops I wouldn't go through myself, so I'll check in with you guys with some of my choices beforehand and you guys can let me know if they're easy enough to get a hold of.

I'm also thinking of Saturday the 30th as the date, if that works for enough people.

You guys should watch Jodorowsky's The Dance of Reality for your next class trip. A surprisingly emotional trip from the man.

I'd dance it out if I could.

in all I found Diabel a simple movie to grasp (though I don't mean "simple" in a pejorative way) so maybe I'm a bit light on feedback. its emotional register is an appropriate one, or at least Zulawski has the audacity to embrace it throughout the entire two hours. so even if I found it grating, I'd have to admire the commitment (or maybe it was grating, but not without purpose).

I dug Posession so it's not like I didn't know what I was getting into.

The style is essentially one of emotional incoherence, so I'm not sure that a complexity would add anything coherent - it's not as if you watch On the Silver Globe for a coherent, nuanced depiction of unnaturally slowly aging astronaut offspring living on an alien planet. There is perhaps a lot more complexity to the film, but I still find it a similarly "simple" experience in that the bizarre register of the film is more musical than literary, and the cinematography is certainly more visceral than objective, and the acting is certainly more surreal than naturalistic, so it is in essence the opposite of everything you might find in a Wiseman film. And, yet, you could call a Wiseman film simple, in its own way, even if the takeaways would be innumerably more than an encumbered, overstuffed "complicated" film full of sound and fury... If anything, I would say that Diabel is a singular, fully bodied dip into surrealistic excess - plus a thick helping of veiled black comedy which always operates within the style of the film. And even without it, it's still a film full of sound and fury, and ignoring all that it signifies would still leave something unmatched and untamed. I guess some people watch Lynch in order to concoct half-baked conspiracies, but I typically just watch them for the paintings spilling onto the screen and bleeding into each other. Zulawski's always bleed more, and thicker, though.

I'd also add that it is an angry, angry movie, if one were to site the political context as Why This Movie Was Made And Is How It Is. although such skeleton keys might not be necessary; you can still get the full Diabel experience without them.

Brainstormed a few options. Can anyone who's interested in participating next round let me know how easy these are to get a hold of (il)legally on your end:

Black Friday (Kashyap, 2004) - this is on Canadian Netflix, not sure if it's on American Netflix too
Cat in the Brain (Fulci, 1990) - this has a snazzy DVD/Blu-ray release, but I'm not sure if it's on any streaming service
The Territory (Ruiz, 1981) - this has a somewhat watchable copy up on YouTube and is my fallback if the others are too hard to obtain

Can definitely get the second, but not so sure about the other two. No need to worry about me though since I flubbed on The Devil, which I still have sitting on my dresser waiting to be paid attention to. Apparently, Clash of the Warlords is considerably more important.

Here's links to all of them:

Black Friday You can find parts 2 and 3 at the top of that website.
Cat in the Brain
The Territory

I'd be willing to watch any one of these.

can get the Kashyap and Fulci easily by legal means. obviously I can watch the Ruiz on Youtube and if that one gets chosen, I might try and look for a better quality version.

so, I'm good with all three.

Watching a movie on your computer is blasphemy. It's not what being a true cinema buff is about.

Blasphemy has to do with insulting or having no respect for God, so I'm not sure if that's the best word to use.

Anyways, I understand why some people don't feel comfortable with watching movies online, but I can't afford to buy/rent a film every time I decide to watch one. It would add up to a lot of money over time. However, I do rent movies occasionally and check them out from my local library quite often.

He didn't reply. I guess we'll never know. :(

Brainstormed a few options. Can anyone who's interested in participating next round let me know how easy these are to get a hold of (il)legally on your end:

Black Friday (Kashyap, 2004) - this is on Canadian Netflix, not sure if it's on American Netflix too
Cat in the Brain (Fulci, 1990) - this has a snazzy DVD/Blu-ray release, but I'm not sure if it's on any streaming service
The Territory (Ruiz, 1981) - this has a somewhat watchable copy up on YouTube and is my fallback if the others are too hard to obtain

I should be able to watch Black Friday and Territory legally. Cat in the Brain is a bit harder for me to find.
But don't mind me, I'm still behind on two Class Trips. :(
