From my library: Ernst Friedrich - Krieg dem Kriege


This is a reprint of a book by the pacifist Ernst Friedrich, enlgish: War against War!, published 1924 in four languages, but was tranlasted into 50 other languages. It depicted the results of World War I in extremely graphic photographies in the intention to upset and instigate its readers to resist against war in any form.

The Old Dark House (1932)



Seeking shelter from a storm, five travelers are in for a bizarre and terrifying night when the stumble upon the Femm family estate.

Wildly entertaining horror classic with a great star cast skillfully mixing the scares with humour.

Halliwell****: "Marvellous horror comedy filled with superb grotesques and memorable lines, closely based on a Priestley novel but omitting the more thoughtful moments. A stylist's and connoisseur's treat."

Maltin***1/2: "Outstanding melodrama (with tongue-in-cheek)...A real gem..."

Jimmy's Hall (2014)


In 1921 Jimmy Gralton's sin was to build a dance hall on a rural crossroads in Ireland where young people could come to learn, to argue, to dream... but above all to dance and have fun.

Rousing and affecting movie with a great cast retelling an aggravating embarrasing episode of Irish history.

New Stuff: Late Autumn/ A Mother Should be Loved


Second addiation to my ongoing Yasujirô Ozu collection.


Bree Condon


Water for Elephants (2011)

 
A veterinary student abandons his studies after his parents are killed and joins a traveling circus as their vet.
 
OK melodrama set in a circus environment has a good cast and gets an old-fashioned treatment, but isn't too exciting.

Maltin**1/2: "Waltz's character is puzzling at best, and the love story never catches fire, but the film does offer a beautiful evocation of Depression-era America and circus life..."
