Fruit of Paradise

Fruit of Paradise
Director: Vera Chytilova, 1970.
Czechoslovakia, 99 minutes.
Czech with English subtitles.

An experimental take on the story of Adam and Eve that's both a visual and auditory journey that belongs to the Czech New Wave. Fruit sees a couple (Josef and Eva) at a health resort, taking in the lush and pastoral surroundings with Eva often wandering the grounds in childlike innocence. When she crosses paths with the Robert ominously skulking around the gardens, she is fascinated by him, drawn toward the air of mystery that surrounds him as her relationship with her husband begins to strain and they become alienated from one another. However, her fascination son takes a turn for the morbid as her lust for knowledge leads her to uncovers evidence that Robert may be connected to a series of murders on the estate. A beautiful, morose examination of human nature, rationality, the search for knowledge, and the unbearable weight that comes with it.

Pastoral Hide and Seek

Pastoral Hide and Seek
Director: Shuji Terayama, 1974.
Japan, 104 minutes.
Japanese with English subtitles.

Semi-autobiographical in the loosest sense, Pastoral Hide and Seek reads as a surrealist Post-war coming of age tale that takes a sudden meta tone as the film shifts near it's midway point to add an additional layer of depth to a film already drenched in experimental, avant-garde visuals illustrating the journey of the artist seeking himself in the rural Japanese countryside. The result is a complex, introspective, spellbindingly subversive film about the artist, reality and reconstruction of memory that deserves more than one viewing.

A Day in the Death of Joe Egg

A Day in the Death of Joe Egg
Director: Peter Merak, 1972
United Kingdom, 106 minutes.
English.

A domestic drama revolving around two parents attempting to raise their daughter, afflicted with cerebral palsy and almost completely comatose, alive in a vegetative state through the entire film. Coping with their lives the couple lives in a state of despair accentuated by black comedy, as the couple attempt to find resolution in their lives as individuals, a couple, and a family, contrasting their expectations with reality and moving forward with an uncomfortable but sympathetic laugh. Immensely harrowing but not unrealistic, Joe Egg creates a vignette of family life not frequently depicted except as television dramas and after-school specials, in a dramatized, overly melancholy fashion, presented here in a darkly funny fashion as each character lays bare their fears and passions as the world continues to spin around them.

The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Miss Osbourne

The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Miss Osbourne
Director: Walerian Borowczyk, 1981.
France, Germany, 92 minutes.
French with English subtitles.

A party to celebrate the engagement of sophisticated and eloquent Dr. Jekyll (played by the seductive Udo Kier) to Miss Fanny Osbourne comes to a crashing halt as one of the guests is found brutalized and murdered. The remaining guests go on a search to find the intruder in their midst and save their lives. Under a chemical influence the restrained Dr. Jekyll sheds the rigid social mores of Victorian society and becomes the animalistic madman, Mr. Hyde. Discovering his secret, Fanny undergoes a psychological transformation of her own, lured by the promise of self-actualization and existance beyond the domestic sphere, temped into Hyde's world of lustful hedonism, accelerating the plot to a cathartic, visually stunning climax in this shocking, seductive, well-crafted film.

In a post-apocalyptic future brought on by sentient, self-replicating robots bent on human annihilation, a scrap metal scavenger stumbles across a strange artifact and brings it back to the slum colony known as New York. The artifact however, is the head unit of one of these robots and is unwittingly reactivated. This film is a visual assault of colors and sounds, grating to the eye, engaging and nightmarish. Billowing smoke, blown out reds, bleached landscapes all add to the relatively straightforward narrative to create a truly remarkable excursion into the genres of sci-fi and action.

Dancehall Queen
Directors: Rick Elgood, Don Letts, 1997.
Jamaica, 98 minutes.

From Don Letts, videographer to The Clash, comes Dancehall Queen, a gritty and colorful drama portraying the drama of the life of a street vendor and single mother trying to make ends meet in Kingston, Jamaica. Seeking a way out, she takes on a new life in the dancehall, building a reputation for herself as a newcomer to the dancefloor, eventually entering a televised contest to become Jamiaca's Dancehall Queen, take the cash prize and lift herself and her children from their working-class life. A little improbable, but well acted, with a booming soundtrack and colorful dancefloor scenes and choreography.
