Haha! That explains a lot, actually.

Like why I can't persuade Beau to call me Maiden when everyone else does. :P

Shield has a stronger, more bellicose sound to it, but at the same time seems to suggest protectiveness, nurture. "Shield, protecting us from bad films and worse discussion through enlightened forum habits." Maiden, by comparison, is too medieval and Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio for my liking. And I don't mean her character in The Abyss.

Has any string of qualities ever sounded less like me, though? I admit Shieldmaiden's a silly name, but I'm stuck with it, and I've grown to like "Maiden" because people here call me that.

"I've stuck with it" would be more appropriate, considering the history of name changes around these parts.

True. I have no desire to change it in any case. It's part of me now... part of the whole dissuasive persona. :)

I don't find Shield/Maiden/Shieldmaiden to be dissuasive at all. The contrary, actually. I wish she watched movies I actually felt I could discuss at any length. :P

Shieldmaiden is not a silly name! :x

I will call you Maiden from now on. That last thing I wrote was really me trying to have fun justifying why I would call you Shield. Truth is there was no thought process involved in the selection.

I guess it was mine, too, though I haven't been making lists lately. I watched it twice, back-to-back. It was an unforgettable experience, and a lot more life-affirming than I expected.

Post Maiden's Voyage: Faust

Image
Image Image

At long last, Faust! After the lackluster Alexandra, I almost didn’t dare to hope that this one would compare to my favorites by him, but I needn’t have worried. With CGI, puppetry, and some convincing makeup, this is big-budget Sokurov; a gorgeous, idiosyncratic fairy-tale that somehow manages to feel in tune with his previous work. It combines the squalor and desperation of The Second Circle, the ridiculous evil of Moloch, and the warmth and energy of Days of Eclipse, with a sort of muscular momentum I’ve never seen in his films before. And if it doesn't tug at my heartstrings like Eclipse, it's still satisfyingly dense and crazy. And, did I mention, gorgeous? It has the changing color filters and skewed, impressionistic pictures I’m used to, but with rich, muted colors that glow like a Pedro Costa film. It's a fascinating adaptation, very much Sokurov's own, but packed with allusions to the things left out, and enhanced by the best devil on film since Zulawski’s Diabel!

Hey, how was the sound when you watched it? Instead of the overwhelming sound I expected, this was rather quiet, with only traces of the crazy aural collage I love.

Umm, I forget! It was typically at a remove from the images, for the dubbing. I'd like to go back and listen.

The optimal length for a post about a film I haven't seen. Kind of like a teaser trailer. And you're using Pedro Costa as a comparison point now? That trip to Abyssinia was a fruitful one indeed. I just watched that other Costa film as well, so this is one of those paranoid's coincidences.

The colors... no, the lighting was sometimes strongly reminiscent of Costa. Just look at those bottom two pictures. Can you see it?

What did you think of Colossal Youth? It's certainly strange, but I ended up kind of loving it for its poetry – the beautiful repetition of language, of images, of ideas.

I can definitely see it in the last one. I really liked Colossal Youth, although I wouldn't know quite what to say beyond that. It's the sort of film I would have found incredibly boring a few years ago, or that I would have tried to convince myself was more interesting than it actually is, but now I don't need to. I appreciate the cinematic power of monotony.

But you still call it monotony, haha. I know what you mean, though, and feel the same. Still, I'm not sure I would have appreciated Colossal Youth if it had been my first Costa. Watching them in order helped a lot.

How many have you seen now? I was pretty baffled by it at first, but it aged well. That letter he composes to his wife was beautiful. And once I figured out that it couldn't be "understood," that it was more about archetypes, and rhythms, and yearning for the irretrievably lost – I loved it. Plus, visually, it was always interesting, and sometimes truly beautiful:

About that letter, it's first heard in another Costa...I believe Casa de Lava. Connections! I still have to see In Vanda's Room. Seen 5 films and the Change Rien short.

Vanda's the hardest one to watch, I think, since it's the least fictional. It's good though.

I'm sure Sokurov's Faust was actually made in the 80s and the release delayed until now. Lovely madness captured by a gently floating camera wearing soft, glowing muted colours. Gorgeous. I want to see it in 3D.

Tell me what you meant by your first comment. Are you talking about the 80s in general, or Sokurov’s 80s films? Because, aesthetically, this feels different from his other films to me, and it’s not just the colors. (Or, maybe it is.) Has he ever made anything as beautiful?!

I see it more like the kind of films that Zulawski, Has, Szulkin, etc, used to make. Calmly disorientating. There's dialogue everywhere, minimal cutting, a spinning camera, constant momentum, and idea overflow.

Ah. I love the eighties, including many that don't fit that mold. But obviously I have a lot yet to see... (Has?)

I'm still pretty sure I wouldn't have "gotten it" if I hadn't approached it through the Fontainhas trilogy.
