THE FILMS:

Wednesday, 17 January 2018

THE ADVENTURES OF PRINCE ACHMED (1926)
The Adventures of Prince Achmed is the oldest surviving animated feature film and still stands as one of the great classics of animation – witty, lively, delicate, inventive, stirring and romantic. Lotte Reiniger’s enchanting work uses intricate silhouettes made from cut-out cardboard and thin sheets of lead, an animation technique she invented, to enact a tale from The Arabian Nights. The film tells the story of a wicked sorcerer who tricks Prince Achmed into mounting a flying horse. What follows is a series of wondrous adventures. The animated figures in Achmed move against a changing backdrop of vivid colour tinting and ornate scenery, from the scene where the Prince first finds Princess Peri Banu bathing in the lake to the frightening flying goblins who spirit the sorcerer away to do his bidding. Director Jean Renoir called the film 'a masterpiece' and effusively proclaimed the director 'born with magic hands.' Reiniger was unusual in making conventional fairy tales rather than the more experimental or political works favoured by fellow members of the avant-garde. The Adventures of Prince Achmed impresses for its exquisite craftsmanship, balletic movement, expressive romanticism, and moments of potent sensuousness and poetry.


THE GENERAL (1926)
Considered one of the funniest silent films ever made, The General is an epic of silent comedy, one of the most expensive productions of its time and it is now widely regarded as a masterpiece (the film was ranked among the ten best films in history by the magazine Sight & Sound of the British Film Institute, and it regularly appears in the lists of the greatest masterpieces of the seventh art). Based on the autobiographical book The Great Locomotive by William Pittenger, the film is set during the American Civil War and it boasts the most unremitting passages of virtuoso slapstick genius Buster Keaton ever shot as well as an unflagging momentum. The General displays marvellous technical and structural perfection, a unique combination of playful comic inventiveness and realistic romance, and nonchalant, graceful, fluid athleticism on the part of Keaton. The film sets off the adventures of Southern railroad engineer Johnny Gray (Buster Keaton), facing off against Union soldiers during the American Civil War. Johnny loves his train ('The General') and his fiancée, Annabelle. At the outbreak of the war, he is turned down for service because he's more valuable as an engineer, but Annabelle thinks it's because he is a coward. Union spies capture The General with Annabelle on board. Johnny must rescue both his train and his girl, and he pursues the soldiers, using various modes of transportation in comic action scenes that highlight Keaton's boundless wit and dexterity.

NOSFERATU (1922)
One of the most pioneering films in the silent German expressionist movement, Friedrich Murnau’s Nosferatu is almost unique in portraying a vampire who is not darkly attractive, but corpselike and ghastly. Even so, his dread fascination remains troubling: the hero’s wife seems repelled but also mesmerised even as she seeks to destroy him. In reality, Nosferatu is an unauthorized adaptation of Bram Stoker’s Dracula, but it eschews the traditional role of Christian iconography of symbols, retaining only a few vestigial references, for example an allusion to the seven deadly sins. The film makes, nevertheless, a major contribution to vampire mythology: It was in this film that the vampire was first imagined to have a deathly vulnerability to sunlight. Nosferatu, like Dracula, has been the subject of numerous Freudian and sociological interpretations: The vampire is sex; the vampire is the id or animal desire; the vampire is wantonness; the vampire is venereal disease. But in making surrender rather than resistance the means of destroying the monster, Nosferatu resists allegorisation, remaining simply, unsettlingly, itself.


SAFETY LAST! (1923)
The comic genius of silent star Harold Lloyd is eternal. Chaplin is the sweet innocent, Keaton the stoic outsider, but Lloyd is the modern guy striving for success. And with its torrent of perfectly executed gags and astonishing stunts, Safety Last! is his quintessential comedy, the film that has defined his entire career, and the one that has identified him as the King of the Daredevil Comedy. The film is most remembered for its thrilling, hair-raising climax – the iconic image of Lloyd dangling from the hand of a giant clock on a twelve-story skyscraper above busy Los Angeles streets. Regarded as one of the most significant American silent films, Safety Last! not only defines the work of a top comedian and filmmaker, but it also indicates how a movie made 95 years ago can still evoke the same audience reaction as it had when initially released. The boy (Harold Lloyd) leaves his rural home to make a name for himself as a man of means in the city and to make his girlfriend (Mildred Davis) proud of him. He gets a job as a sales clerk in a big department store serving obnoxious customers, pretending that he is the manager. When his girlfriend makes a surprise visit, he has to pull out all the stops to make sure she doesn’t realise the truth.

THE ADVENTURES OF PRINCE ACHMED (1926)
Η παλαιότερη διασωθείσα ταινία κινουμένων σχεδίων, Οι Περιπέτειες του Πρίγκηπα Αχμέντ (The Adventures of Prince Achmed), θεωρείται ακόμα και στις μέρες μας ένα από τα σπουδαία κλασικά έργα κινουμένων σχεδίων – πνευματώδες, ζωηρό, λεπτοδουλεμένο, αυθεντικό, συνταρακτικό και ρομαντικό. Σε αυτό το μαγευτικό έργο, η Λότε Ράινιγκερ χρησιμοποιεί περίπλοκες σιλουέτες από χαρτόνι και λεπτά φύλλα μολύβδου, μια τεχνική κινουμένων σχεδίων που η ίδια εφηύρε, για να αναπαραστήσει μια ιστορία από τις Χίλιες και Μια Νύχτες. Η ταινία περιγράφει την ιστορία ενός διαβολικού δράκου ο οποίος παγιδεύει τον Πρίγκηπα Αχμέντ, ξεγελώντας τον να ιππεύσει ένα ιπτάμενο άλογο. Αυτό που ακολουθεί είναι μια σειρά εκπληκτικών περιπετειών. Τα κινούμενα σχέδια της ταινίας συγκρούονται σε ένα μεταβαλλόμενο φόντο έντονων χρωματικών αποχρώσεων και περίτεχνων σκηνικών, από την σκηνή όπου ο Πρίγκηπας πρωτοσυναντά την Πριγκίπισσα Πέρι Μπάνου να πλένεται στη λίμνη μέχρι τα τρομακτικά δαιμόνια που υπογείως εκτελούν τις διαταγές του μάγου. Ο σκηνοθέτης Ζαν Ρενουάρ αποκάλεσε τον Αχμέντ «αριστούργημα» και δήλωσε ενδεικτικά πως η Ράινιγκερ «γεννήθηκε με μαγικά χέρια». Η σκηνοθέτιδα ήταν αξεπέραστη στη δημιουργία συμβατικών παραμυθιών και δεν υπέκυπτε στη δημιουργία πιο πειραματικών ή πολιτικών έργων με τα οποία καταπιάνονταν οι σύγχρονοί της σκηνοθέτες της αβάν-γκαρντ. Η ταινία ξεχωρίζει για την εξαίσια δεξιοτεχνία, τον εκφραστικό ρομαντισμό και τη χορευτική της κίνηση, καθώς και για τις συγκλονιστικά αισθησιακές και ποιητικές στιγμές της.


THE GENERAL (1926)
Από τις πιο πολυδάπανες παραγωγές του βωβού κινηματογράφου, Ο Στρατηγός (The General) θεωρείται σήμερα μια από τις πιο αριστουργηματικές και σπαρταριστές κωμωδίες που γυρίστηκαν ποτέ (η ταινία έχει συμπεριληφθεί από το περιοδικό Sight & Sound του Βρετανικού Ινστιτούτου Κινηματογράφου ανάμεσα στις δέκα καλύτερες ταινίες στην ιστορία του κινηματογράφου, και εμφανίζεται τακτικά στις λίστες με τα σπουδαιότερα αριστουργήματα της έβδομης τέχνης). Βασισμένη στο αυτοβιογραφικό βιβλίο Η Μεγάλη Καταδίωξη (The Great Locomotive Chase) του Γουίλιαμ Πίτεντζερ, η επική αυτή ταινία εκτυλίσσεται κατά τη διάρκεια του Αμερικανικού Εμφυλίου Πολέμου και προβάλλει τις πιο αστείρευτες σκηνές που γύρισε ποτέ ο δεξιοτέχνης της φαρσοκωμωδίας Μπάστερ Κίτον, ενώ ξεχωρίζει για την αδιάπτωτη σε ταχύτητα κίνησή της. Η ταινία διακρίνεται για τη θαυμάσια τεχνική και δομική της αρτιότητα, για μια απαράμιλλη σύγκραση κωμικής επινοητικότητας και ρεαλιστικού ρομαντισμού, καθώς και για τον επιδεικτικά απαθή, χαριτωμένο και ευμετάβλητο χαρακτήρα του σκληραγωγημένου Κίτον. Ο Στρατηγός καταπιάνεται με τις περιπέτειες του Johnny Gray (Μπάστερ Κίτον) – ενός μηχανικού τραίνων στον αμερικανικό Νότο, ο οποίος έρχεται αντιμέτωπος με τους ενωτικούς στρατιώτες του Βορρά κατά τη διάρκεια του Αμερικανικού εμφυλίου. Ο Johnny έχει δύο αγάπες: το τραίνο του («τον Στρατηγό») και την αρραβωνιαστικιά του, Annabelle. Με το ξέσπασμα του πολέμου, ο Johnny κρίνεται ακατάλληλος για στρατιώτης και καταλληλότερος ως μηχανικός, ωστόσο η Annabelle πιστεύει πως ο ίδιος απέφυγε την κατάταξη διότι είναι δειλός. Όταν ο Στρατηγός, με επιβαίνουσα την Annabelle, καταλαμβάνεται από κατασκόπους των ενωτικών, ο Johnny αναγκάζεται να καταδιώξει τους στρατιώτες για να διασώσει τόσο το τραίνο του όσο και το κορίτσι του, χρησιμοποιώντας διάφορα μέσα μεταφοράς σε μια ξεκαρδιστική σειρά σκηνών δράσης που αναδεικνύουν το ανεξάντλητο πνεύμα και την επιδεξιότητα του Κίτον.

NOSFERATU (1922)
Από τις πιο πρωτοποριακές βωβές ταινίες του γερμανικού κινηματογραφικού εξπρεσιονισμού, το Νοσφεράτου του Φρίντριχ Μουρνάου είναι σχεδόν πρωτοφανές όσο αφορά την απεικόνιση ενός βρυκόλακα που δεν είναι ζοφερά ελκυστικός, αλλά πτωματικός και φρικιαστικός. Το νοσηρό πάθος του παραμένει εντούτοις προβληματικό: η γυναίκα του ήρωα αισθάνεται αποτροπιασμό μα και σαγήνη, ακόμα και όταν προσπαθεί να τον καταστρέψει. Στην πραγματικότητα, το Νοσφεράτου αποτελεί μια μη-εξουσιοδοτημένη μεταφορά του Δράκουλα του Μπραμ Στόκερ για τη μεγάλη οθόνη, αλλά εγκρατεύεται όσο αφορά την χρήση των παραδοσιακών συμβόλων της Χριστιανικής εικονογραφίας, διατηρώντας μόνο ελάχιστες υποτυπώδεις αναφορές, παρεμφαίνοντας, για παράδειγμα, τα επτά θανάσιμα αμαρτήματα. Η ταινία συμβάλλει σημαντικά στη μυθολογία των βρυκολάκων: Ήταν η συγκεκριμένη ταινία που δημιούργησε για πρώτη φορά τη νοερή εικόνα του βρυκόλακα που έχει θανάσιμη ευαισθησία στο ηλιόφως. Ο Νοσφεράτου, όπως και ο Δράκουλας, έχει αποτελέσει αντικείμενο πολλών Φροϋδικών και κοινωνιολογικών ερμηνειών: Ο βρυκόλακας σημαίνει σεξ, ο βρυκόλακας είναι το ‘εκείνο’ ή ο ζωώδης ίμερος, ο βρυκόλακας συμβολίζει την ακολασία ή την αφροδίσια ασθένεια. Καταλήγοντας ωστόσο στη συνθηκολόγηση, παρά στην αντίσταση, για να εξολοθρεύσει το τέρας, το Νοσφεράτου ανθίσταται στις όποιες αλληγορίες, παραμένοντας απλά, ανησυχαστικά, ο εαυτός του.


SAFETY LAST! (1923)
Η κωμική μεγαλοφυία του Χάρολντ Λόιντ είναι αέναη. Ο Τσάπλιν είναι ο αξιαγάπητος αφελής, ο Κίτον είναι ο στωικός παρείσακτος, αλλά ο Λόιντ είναι ο σύγχρονος άνθρωπος που πασχίζει για την επιτυχία. Και με έναν χείμαρρο αψεγάδιαστα εκτελεσμένων γκαγκ και επικίνδυνων ακροβασιών, η ταινία Μωρέ, κουράγιο (Safety Last!) αποτελεί την πεμπτουσία του έργου του – την κωμική ταινία που καθόρισε ολόκληρη την σταδιοδρομία του και μέσω της οποίας ο Λόιντ αναγνωρίσθηκε ως ο «Βασιλιάς της Ριψοκίνδυνης Κωμωδίας». Η ταινία έχει παραμείνει αξέχαστη για την ανατριχιαστική κορύφωσή της – την εμβληματική εικόνα του Λόιντ να κρέμεται από τον δείκτη ενός γιγαντιαίου ρολογιού σε έναν δωδεκαώροφο ουρανοξύστη πάνω από τους πολυσύχναστους δρόμους του Λος Άντζελες. Το Safety Last! συγκαταλέγεται ανάμεσα στις σημαντικότερες βωβές ταινίες του αμερικανικού κινηματογράφου, συνοψίζοντας όχι μόνο το έργο ενός κορυφαίου κωμικού και σκηνοθέτη αλλά καταδεικνύοντας παράλληλα πως μια ταινία που γυρίστηκε πριν 95 χρόνια καταφέρνει ακόμα να προκαλέσει την ίδια αντίδραση στο κοινό όπως και τότε. Το αγόρι (Χάρολντ Λόιντ) εγκαταλείπει το σπίτι του στην επαρχία για να γίνει ξακουστός και επιφανής στη μεγαλούπολη και για να κάνει την κοπέλα του (Μίλντρεντ Ντέιβις) περήφανη γι’ αυτόν. Βρίσκει δουλειά ως πωλητής σε ένα μεγάλο πολυκατάστημα, εξυπηρετώντας ενοχλητικούς πελάτες, προσποιούμενος πως είναι ο διευθυντής. Όταν η κοπέλα του αποφασίζει να τον επισκεφτεί αιφνιδιαστικά, ο Λόιντ πρέπει να ξεπεράσει όλα τα εμπόδια ούτως ώστε να μην τον πάρει χαμπάρι.
