ALPHAVILLE -- I LOVE YOU


Saw that on Sundance awhile ago -- LOVED IT! Can't wait to buy it.

Contempt is on my netflix list...doesn't  the Casino soundtrack have an excerpt from it's score??? If it does, I'm renting it next...anything Scorsese likes is cool.


i love contempt SO much. jack palance is fucking hilarious in it. the criterion disc is definately worth the cash.

yes, i believe that is right about the Scorsese using the score......he also put up his own cash to help get the film restored.

========================
mixing the hitchcock thread with this one for you ebeaman. scorsese loves Vertigo. i remember reading a forward by him in one of the books on it. see that. it is my favorite film.
I am Torgo. I take care of the place while the Master is away.

I really didn't care much for Alphaville at all. Minimal work by Godard that plays out like bad science fiction in having limited imagination and just repeating a general scientific idea like the difference between a society of freedom and one of not. It ran its course in showing how the world was not open and all, when it could have identified that in the first 5 minutes and realized talking about it so generally is not interesting. Anna Karina, just even looking at her face, is worth while though.

i liked it for the very reason you disliked it -- i think the whole feeling of "bad science fiction" was intentional and is what made it soo fun. the interesting part of it is you have this hard boiled detective character thrown into a science fiction plot -- i fucking love it.

If it was intential, then I would have liked to see the movie have more fun with the idea instead of trying to play it serious. Playing serious just makes the material believe the quality of what it is showing. Band of Outsiders also seemed to be adapting bad literature, but played with it in a great different way in making it much like a silent film with moments of pure freedom and dealing with a kind of realism in the sloppiness of things humans do that can't really be drawn out in most novels, because they do seemed planned out. I didn't feel anything new or exciting to Alphaville to make it stand out in such a refreshing way in juncture with bad literature.

This is exactly what I thought too...I'm not saying that just to side with anybody on the matter. This really was exactly what I thought from the first time I saw it. There's no way some of the stuff in that movie was meant to be taken seriously...but it's all fucking awesome.

Oh, cool man, thanks. I've always wanted to see that, now more than ever cause of Scorsese's name even being in the same sentence as the movie...I'm going to blind buy Contempt now.

i meant that Vertigo was my favorite movie. i bought the Contempt Criterion and it's pretty cool. you may want to rent Contempt first(if possible) since it'll be close to 40 bucks though.
