TROUBLE IN PARADISE (dir: Ernst Lubitsch, Not Rated) - Bart says, "Ernst Lubitsch is one of those directors' directors whose most popular movies (NINOTCHKA, THE SHOP AROUND THE CORNER, TO BE OR NOT TO BE) are admittedly really, really good, but you wonder why he's so universally beloved in the film community. It's not until you see some of his pre-code movies (you know, before religious groups forced Hollywood to remove all immorality from films for 30-some years) that you understand what that so-called "Lubitsch Touch" is all about. TROUBLE IN PARADISE, about a love triangle between a pair of thieving lovers and the wealthy woman they are trying to swindle, is undoubtedly my favorite film of his, and it's mostly the shocking innuendo that makes it so good. I'm willing to bet we'd all be much bigger Lubitsch fans now if he were allowed to keep making movies as wittily sordid as this one."
I WAS BORN, BUT... (dir: Yasujiro Ozu, Not Rated) - Bart says, "By 1930, most of the world had converted to making films with sound. Not true in Japan where even a popular director like Yasujiro Ozu didn't get to make his first sound film until 1935. My viewing of this, his most well-regarded silent film, was a transcendent experience, sitting in an auditorium with dozens of other students in complete silence (musical accompanyment was not traditional for Japanese silents) watching the two young brothers in the movie discover with increasing disappointment that their father is merely human. Only Chaplin's CITY LIGHTS comes close to being so funny and so moving at the same time."
