Ok, this could be a test

Not the best image, but all the bigger challenge.

 The Confession-- from the great Gosta Gravas--early 70's

 

I was living in Hamburg at that time and remember queuing to see this at the Theatre there that showed films in English(or other than German) on weekends--after being entranced with his earlier work Z!

You know your movies,Willco. Can you believe the commercial stations used to air movies of this quality years ago? Now it's all comic book heroes. Yves Montand in the cool looking shades.

Great movie this one. Willco will probably know the film. Clue: This actor is also a famous singer.

For a fleeting moment I thought it was an early Luc Besson film, post nuclear / environmental catastrophe with Jean Reno.  I saw it in Europe and I think it was the first film of  Reno and he was such a striking looking character had that Rocky punch drunk look. The scene that still remains with me is suddenly for no reason the sky starts to rain fish, it was so out of the blue and WTF happened that caused the sky to rain fish for God's sake.

 

It had a Mad Max thing about it but Besson had such a quirky vision and he's hit and miss but mainly hit haven't thought about that film for years and it's raining in Melbourne but it ain't raining fish......for now.

In German I think it was something like the Letze Krieg and it had the guy that played Harry in Derrick in it. I was about 25 I think when I saw it, subtitled, and it's one of those films that just resonated with me, like early Haneke films such as the 7th Continent, opened your mind to otherways of thinking outside of cinema.

 

Strange film, haven't seen it for decades but my remembrance of it is sketchy but I thought it as an added lane to the cinema at the time.

That's Tom Waits but I don't know the movie. Anything from the last 20 years and I'm lost.  :D

I was aiming this one at you Martin as the director is of the Monty Python fame and also the last pic posted of the singer with welding goggles or similar reminded me of Tom Waits and this movie heaps.

 

Another 2 pics from it:

I've seen quite a few Terry Gilliam movies but this one I haven't.

It's a trip and a half. Made in 2009. Heath Ledgers last role as the film was half done when he passed, so J Depp, Jude Law and others filmed the rest of the scenes in Heaths place. It's a gargantuan scale of an undertaking and therefore a bit on the long side. But definitely worth a look.

Imaginarium was mildly entertaining, saw Terry's latest The Man Who Killed Don Quixote at MIFF last year, very disappointing, it's long production time certainly shows, a dog's breakfast!

Haven't seen TMWKDQ, and off course Imaginarium is probably not as good as Terrys other earlier work (suffering both from "bitten off more than one can chew" and loosing the lead actor mid filming - then try to make something - anything of the project). I find with directors and artists in general there tends to be a case of diminishing returns as they head into the 3rd act of their lives (eg Francis Ford-Coppola) although it's not a rule (Clint Eastwood, Tom Waits, Leonard Cohen). And Terry being Terry has a much greater free hand, artistic licence and less hassle from the producers in his films, which of course leads to overproduction/ complexity and mess.

 

It's interesting that Bob Dylan in early/mid 2000's TV interview commented about those early magical albums that the only person that could have done such work is Bob in his youth and that it's almost a work of a stranger to him (heavily paraphrasing from memory...) and in a different league to his later work.

I know that one. Peter Carey's Oscar and Lucinda.

What an originally brilliant film that is.
