Kon Ichikawa documents the 1964 Summer Olympics in Tokyo. Like Leni Riefenstahl's Olympia, which documented the 1936 Summer Olympics in Berlin, Ichikawa's film was considered a milestone in documentary filmmaking. However, Tokyo Olympiad keeps its focus more on the atmosphere of the games and the human side of the athletes instead of concentrating only on the winners and the results.
Ichikawa's cameras follow the 1964 Summer Olympics from opening to closing ceremonies. Sometimes he focuses on spectators, as athletes pass in a blur; sometimes he isolates a competitor; ... . You can read more in Google, Youtube, Wiki

(ag) wrote: Big Jake is an amazing film. It is about the McCandles ranch that is run over by a gang of cutthroats led by the evil John Fain. John Wayne and Richard Boone give excellent performances. The script is well written. George Sherman did a great job directing this movie. I enjoyed watching this motion picture because of the action and drama. Big Jake is a must see.
(mx) wrote: Bertolucci is my favorite director but I knew him mostly with romances. And now this movie totally blew my mind: I have to say that this is Bertoluccis one of the greatest works. He really went too serious lately. This movie shows him as fully developed director in both visual and metaphoric way to tell the story. The movie is an amazing work in all means of cinematography. The ending on fascism and homosexuality is certainly proof of a talented filmmaker.
(de) wrote: I'm touched by the sensibility young Jacques Perrin showed here and Claudia Cardinale was just gorgeous it's hard to take your eyes off her. The cinematography is top class. It's the most beautiful black and white motion picture I've ever seen.
(nl) wrote: Evocative noir set in the world of wildcat trucking and the shady California produce industry. Beautiful location shooting, compelling performances, and the noir staple of a returning vet confronting the underbelly of America. The movie's only slightly tainted by Darryl Zanuck's end-of-the-picture changes made to appease forces for good in the community.
(ru) wrote: Buck Privates was the first of three movies starring Abbott and Costello and the Andrews Sisters, although Bud and Lou had one other film before. Hollywood wisely realized that Abbott and Costello couldn't carry a film on their own at this point and gave their movies regular stars and a regular plot, to which they would add their own comedy bits to. You could probably cut Abbott and Costello completely out of Buck Privates and it wouldn't affect the plot one little bit. They do their comedy bits sort of in a vaccuum apart from the rest of the film. The Andrews Sisters do a couple of songs in the movie, most noteably "You're a lucky fellow Mr. Smith" and "The Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy". The Andrews Sisters, for those who don't know, were an amazingly talented singing group. Three sisters who sang airtight harmony that was quick, fluid and flawless (I remember being a little pre-schooler and begging my grandmother to play the single of "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy" for me every time she wanted me to take a nap- I'd lay there listening to that song over and over again on that old record player, digesting the music like it was the stuff of dreams). Anyway, besides the Abbott and Costello bits, there's also the main storyline, which involves a bit of class warfare between the rich inductee and his former butler-turned-equal-private. The rich soldier and the poor soldier butt heads over nearly everything, especially the hot girl who is apparently in the army as some sort of concubine or something. Can the soldiers overcome their differences and work together to defeat Hitler? Slow down, this isn't that kind of movie. Actually, it came out before WWII officially began, but there are undertones of the anticipation of war. As hard as they might try, nobody's fooled about the inevitable breakout of war. Still, this is pretty light-hearted fare. Entertaining, though.
