MARY POPPINS (dir: Robert Stevenson, R) - Michelle says, "She was an icon of my youth, and I was a generation removed from the movie and about two removed from the books. But since my parents are good and nostalgic, they introduced me to Mary Poppins early on. Travers’ story inverts that fantasy trope of children’s literature and hero mythology in which the child escapes his world and conquers another, only to return to his own, more prepared to succeed within its boundaries. Here instead, an otherworldly alternate parent appears, allows her charges to escape their dreary adult world while learning how to better function within it, and then leaves to help others. There’s some heartbreak with that final departure, but it’s tempered by the animated/live action scene that was apparently mandatory for all of my favorite kid movies. Good thing I didn’t find out until recently that the little boy who played Michael grew up to die obscurely of drugs or hepatitis or both. That might’ve taken the edge off the happy times, a little."
DR. STRANGELOVE OR: HOW I LEARNED TO STOP WORRYING AND LOVE THE BOMB (dir: Stanley Kubrick, Not Rated) - Thom says, "DR. STRANGELOVE is known for Stanley Kubrick’s direction and Peter Sellers’ triumvirate of characters, but the scene-stealer in this still hilarious black comedy is George C. Scott as General Buck Turgidson. Scott never worked with Kubrick again after this film because Kubrick used Scott’s most ridiculous takes – ones Kubrick promised were just for fun. Unlucky pout-face for George C. Scott, outrageously-obscene smiley face for us, the viewers. Oh, and George C. Scott was literally won over to act in this film by a game of chess with Kubrick. Also, first film introduction of James Earl Jones, better known as the voice of CNN and general sellout-extraordinaire. Watch it with a Communist!"
SEDUCED AND ABANDONED (dir: Pietro Germi, Not Rated) - Bart says, "Germi walks a fine line between virulent condemnation of and affable amusement by out-dated patriarchal values in Italian society in most of his movies (DIVORCE ITALIAN-STYLE, for example). But never is his satire more uncomfortable than in this story of a pregnant girl whose seducer won't marry her because she's not a virgin and whose father will go to any lengths to protect his family's honor. The humor of the film makes the repeated humiliation of its females that much more difficult to watch, no matter how repulsively the males are portrayed. But who ever said movies should be easy to watch? Maybe you should just stay at home and watch THE KING OF QUEENS re-runs instead."
THE WORLD OF HENRY ORIENT (dir: George Roy Hill, Not Rated) - Bart says, "Most people who discover this forgotten little gem of a movie stumble upon it while looking for a nutty Peter Sellers comedy to watch. Some are disappointed by his fairly restrained performance as an egotistical, womanizing pianist and his relatively little screen time, but the rest of us are charmed by this coming-of-age story of two 14-year-old girls who are obsessed with the musician, stalking him through New York City and becoming increasingly disenchanted with the world of adults."
