2022 Indie/Art House Challenge List Thread

2022 Indie/Art House Challenge DISCUSSION Thread
Dusk 30 August - Dawn 1 October


It was agreed last year this challenge implicitly includes silent films and what have been classed in the U.S. as "foreign language films." Talkies that aren't in English, in other words.

The first annual Indie/Art House Challenge evolved out of what was previously the Criterion Challenge. In this challenge, we emphasize exploration rather than a raw quantity of films viewed. We encourage you to take some time and dive into the films you watch. Check out any included supplemental materials. Look up reviews and essays. In other words, immerse yourself! So… what exactly is an Art-House film? It’s a sort of “You’ll know it when you see it” thing, but Wikipedia offers the following characterization:

An art film (or art house film) is typically an independent film, aimed at a niche market rather than a mass market audience.[1] It is "intended to be a serious, artistic work, often experimental and not designed for mass appeal",[2] "made primarily for aesthetic reasons rather than commercial profit",[3] and contains "unconventional or highly symbolic content".[4]
Pre-Horror Participants
We welcome the horror enthusiasts among us who just can’t wait until October. Think of this as a chance to emphasize Art-horror, and save the really schlocky stuff for next month. You’ll find a considerable amount of eligible content!

Distributor Safe List
To make selecting titles easier, any movie made available by the following distributors is classified as "safe" for this challenge, even if it should be a mainstream production. You are not required to watch their edition. You're not limited to these distributors, though, because there are plenty others who bring to us the kinds of films we're after. If you have any questions, ask in the discussion thread.Checklist (Optional, as always)
Spoiler:
The checklist is intended solely as a prompt for participants who want a template for organizing their viewing. It's general enough that you can still complete it even if you decide to stick to just Criterion content, or if you decide to commit fully to horror. Rules:
  • Silent films count for a foreign language IF the original language title cards are shown.
  • You may only use a film once per section. This includes viewings with commentaries, etc.
  • You may substitute 40+ cumulative minutes of short films for a feature, but may only use one from that group per section.

Re: 2022 Indie/Art House Challenge List Thread

* first-time views

August 31:
1. Health (Robert Altman, 1980)* Not Altman's best, but worth watching for its great cast.
September 1:
2. Paris, Texas (Wim Wenders, 1984) I had forgotten how beautiful this one is.
3. Hollis Frampton Shorts: Pan 0-4 (1974)*, Surface Tension (1968)*, Carrots & Peas (1966)*, Lemon (1969)* Palate cleanser with a group of shorts.
4. The Last Black Man in San Francisco (Joe Talbot, 2019)* I'd heard about this one but only caught it this year; well-done with lots of unexpected turns.
September 2:
5. The French Lieutenant's Woman (Karel Reisz, 1981) Great to revisit this one. Streep and Irons are so good together.
6. Gray's Anatomy (Steven Soderbergh, 1996)* Not as good as Swiming to Cambodia, but definitely worth watching for Spalding Grey's take on life, health and mysticism.
September 3:
7. Mona Lisa (Neil Jordan, 1986) Bob Hoskins is so wonderful in this. I forgot Clarke Peters is in it too.
8. Hollis Frampton Shorts: Process Red (1966)*, Marual of Arms (1966)*, Information (1966)*, Maxwell's Demon (1968)* More shorts exploring Frampton's view of the world.
September 4:
9. Deep Cover (Bill Duke, 1992) Starts with a familiar formula, but becomes a much deeper exploration of good and evil.
10. Now, Voyager (Irving Rapper, 1942)* Bette Davis wonderful as usual in what could have been a hackneyed plot.
September 5:
11. Multiple Maniacs (John Waters, 1970) John Waters introduces many themes he'd return to later.
12. Female Trouble (John Waters, 1974) The best of the early John Waters.
13. Female Trouble - Director Commentary* An entertaining commentary; I enjoyed Waters pointing out cast and crew relatives who were extras.
September 6:
14. The Tale (Jennifer Fox, 2018)* The word "brave" gets overused, but it's appropriate in the story of Fox's youth..The cast, particularly Laura Dern, is terrific.
September 7:
15. Che: Part One (Steven Soderbergh, 2008)* Powerful mix of the personal and political. I need to go on to watch part two.
September 9:
16. The Souvenir: Part II (Joanna Hogg, 2021)* Powerful reflection on grief, art, and youth and a strong continuation of part one.
September 10:
17. Last Requests (Courtenay Johnson, 2017)* Intense and haunting short film about Death Row last meals, starring Dale Dickey.
18. Valley of the Dolls (Mark Robson, 1967)
19. Crash (David Cronenberg, 1996)
September 11:
20. Bad Luck Banging or Loony Porn (Radu Jude, 2021)*
21. After Yang (Kogonada, 2022)*
September 12:
22. Blow-Up (Michelangelo Antonioni, 1966)

Re: 2022 Indie/Art House Challenge List Thread



First Time Viewing: 8 / Television: 6/ Streaming: 8 / Blu-ray:5 / DVD:

August 30
1.Out of Print (2014), Kanopy. A terrific doc about the New Beverly Cinema, a revival house in LA keeping the spirit of film alive for film fans.

August 31
2. Koyaanisqatsi. Kanopy.
Koyaanisqatsi tells the story of the corruption of our planet through images and Phillip Glass's amazing score. I saw it in the theater back in the day and I was enthralled. I also became a massive Phillip Glass fan.
3. Hedwig and the Angry Inch (2001). Kanopy. I own this on Blu-Ray, but I want to use up my August credits before they expire.
4. The Mouse That Roared (1963)-TV-This movie is an absolute hoot with Peter Sellers playing three roles in which the tiny Duchy of Grand Fenwick declares war on the United States to get their hands on reconstructions funds only to win the war by accident.
5. Gorky Park (1983)-Kanopy-I'm glad I skipped buying the Kino Blu- William Hurt's British accent is laughable in this ridiculous story about murder and sable smuggling.

September 1
6. Midnight Movies: From the Margin to the Mainstream (2005). TV.
As the title indicates, this is a solid doc about how the subversive ideas in the low-budget movies often exhibited at midnight in revival houses during the 70s spread into mainstream pop culture. I saw all6 films featured in this doc at the Vogue Theater, a 1930s Art Deco theater that was demolished in the 90s. Although the Internet gives us greater access to films than ever before, nothing can replace the experience of watching Pink Flamingos with a mostly high audience.

September 4
7. Day of the Dead (1985). Blu-Ray.
This probably doesn't count as an art film, but nobody can deny that George Romero was a master of independent cinema.

September 5.
8. Shallow Grave (1994). Blu-Ray.
A terrific crime thriller that shows Danny Boyle's early promise.

September 6.
9. Gods and Monsters (1998) YouTube.
Brenadan Fraser and Ian McKellen deliver outstanding performances.

September 7
10. The Most Beautiful Boy in the World (2021). Kanopy.
The old man who leaps to his death in Midsommar was once an attractive teenage boy who was traumatized by his experience filming Death in Venice with Luchino Visconti.

September 11
11, Pink Flamingos (1972)
. Blu-Ray. John Waters's filthy fossil seems like it's trying way too hard to shock the audience.

September 12.
12. Head (1968). Blu-Ray
. Head has been regarded as a bad vanity project by a pre-fab boy band, but it really deserves rexamniaton as a surrealist comedy on par with the Marx Brothers.

September 13
13. Soundies: A Musical History (2007). TCM.
A fascinating doc on a piece of film history unknown to me, music videos decades before MTV.

September 21
14. Titus (1999). Blu-Ray
. Julie Taymor has adapted one of Shakespeare's least regarded plays into a cinematic masterpiece. She matches the over-the-top Grand Guignol violence of the original play with an equally bizarre film, filled with anachronistic trappings like campaign speeches over loudspeakers and 20th-century tanks mixed with Roman spears and swords.

September 24.
15. This is Joan Collins. (2022). TCM. You don't often see documentaries with commentary from the subject.

September 25
16. Still Alice (2014). HBO.
Julianne Moore gives a brilliantly tragic performance as a linguistics professor struck by dementia in her 50s.

September 26
17. Mardi Gras: Made In China (2005).-Kanopy-
A sobering look at how our disposable trinkets--in this case Mardi Gras beads--are manufactured by exploited labor in China

September 29
18. Things to Come (1936)-TCM-
19. Three Thousand Years of Longing (2022)-On Demand-
