The Hipsters....will have to check it out - my understanding the Khrushchev time in SSSR was quite a turnaround in a more liberal outlook (compared to Stalin I guess anything wouldda been...nevertheless). Brezhnev went the other way again.... There was lots of it - the western popular culture - behind the iron curtain mainly from late 50s/early 60s and later and mostly confined to cities and sons/daughters of the educated intellectual elite and interestingly children of army officials (prominent in Yugoslavia too, though technically not behind the Iron Curtain).

I forgot to mention the Russian title is Stilyagi. It's been shown on SBS a few times in the recent past. They'll probably air it again on the new movie channel I suspect.

I quietly wondered how long before someone picks up on it.

Hi Zippi,

 

As there are only 8-10 who frequent these type of the forums, it would most likely be one of US 👍😉

The Triplets Of Belleville. What a good movie. Because of its theme, SBS would often screen it when the Tour de France was on.

"The Illusionist" by the same director is screening on the SBS World Movies periodically currently.

Not quite the same caliber of a film but you can tell it's the same director/ creative team.

Ah Yes I saw this at a Local Film society showing last century(!)

 

Sabotage 

 

Trying to recall  some of the aspects but only the fact of the mood photography and of course the clackety clack of the old projector in the hall-ha!

 

Some pre Hitchcock Noir before he hit the Big time

 

Good one JJ

Big Screen Berkeley: Hitchcock’s “Sabotage” still shocks
3..jpg.28771f84ba0d3602e07512b8e9d33ee1.jpg.2e8acd675f013a4ac682b1596a1d9739.jpg

 

“Sabotage”: From its opening shot of a dimming light bulb, the film defies expectations
According to the unattributed dictionary definition that prefaces Alfred Hitchcock’s Sabotage, the word sabotage means ‘wilful destruction of buildings or machinery with the object of alarming a group of persons or inspiring public uneasiness ‘. It’s an apt description of the effect the film must have had on 1936 cinemagoers, who surely weren’t prepared for Sabotage’s gut-wrenching denouement — a scene still likely to jar viewers today.

Based on Joseph Conrad’s novel ‘Secret Agent’, Sabotage (screening at Pacific Film Archive at 8:45 p.m. on Friday Jan. 11 as part of the series ‘Alfred Hitchcock: The Shape of Suspense’) is an overlooked highlight of the filmmaker’s career. Produced prior to Hitchcock’s arrival in Hollywood, it’s since been overshadowed by such US-made heavyweights as Rear Window, Vertigo and Psycho. Familiarity with those films, however, has long since leeched them of their ability to shock and surprise — something that can’t be said of Sabotage.

From its opening shot of a dimming light bulb, the film defies expectations. According to 1930’s film grammar, a dimming light bulb signified only one thing: an execution. In the case of Sabotage, however, the bulb announces a widespread London blackout caused by the introduction of sand into a power station generator.

As station staff inspect the damage, Hitchcock cuts to a shot of star Oscar Homolka walking through the darkened streets of London. The Austrian-born Homolka would soon relocate to the US and embark on a career playing Middle European heavies, but in 1936 he’d recently arrived in the UK and was still largely an unknown quantity. Nonetheless, his thick eyebrows, permanent scowl and furtive behavior immediately suggest villainy.
