    My eldest son has got into Second World War History at the moment and he has reignited my interest in films about the period (although he is far too young to watch the films I list now). These are both Russian films and the first Come and See was made in the 80s and is quite well known. The other one is called Fortress of War which is about the Russian defence of the Brest fortress. If you haven't seen these then I would very much recommend.

    If the transfer is as good as Gone with the wind's, than it's quite decent.

    Among Chaplin's many great movies, there is one with which I've always had a special affinity.

    It's the 1923 classics A Woman of Paris, with Edna Purviance and Adolphe Menjou. It was the first in which Chaplin didn't appear, apart from a small cameo, and also a drama instead of slapstick comedy. A wonderdul film, (it could be turn into a wonderful opera, too) that we can watch complete in youtube:

    A rarity.

    Darclée is a Romanian film from 1961, premiered at Cannes. A biopic of the famous diva Hariclea Darclée:

    I was twenty years old when "One from the Heart" was premiered. I was instantly fascinated, and this movie is still today my favorite from Coppola. Sadly, this was not a vision shared by many, as this was one of the biggest financial disasters in the history of film:

    Speaking of big spenders of producer's money, this was arguably the grandmother of them all:



    Perhaps not a "great" movie, but a great experience nonetheless.

    Sometimes I get really busy wondering how it would look like with the whole 9 original hours.

    Most probably, we will never know.

    Today, it could have been marketed as a trilogy, or even an HBO television series.

    I think many people, myself included, love Italian Neorealism.

    However, arguably the first neorealist movie was shot in France, by Jean Renoir. It's of course Toni, produced in 1935. A really admirable film:

    Just watched Shock, from 1946, with Vincent Price. I must say I was expecting much more from the first half.
    Here it is, complete on youtube, in its modest 69 minutes:
