This month's Full Disclosure includes some real highlights of the early Hollywood era, including pivotal works from Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton, Harold Lloyd and Howard Hawks. Our team also widens its experience of World Cinema by catching up with top-tier offerings from Federico Fellini, Fritz Lang and Nicolas Roeg, while yet another of our contributors takes the plunge and watches Victor Fleming's epic Gone With The Wind. Add to this a couple of more modern classics, in the form of Francis Ford Coppola's The Godfather and Ridley Scott's Blade Runner, and you have yet another fruitful month of shame reduction for the ever-growing ScreenAnarchy team.

Sure, I'll start! I love M, too. I think it's a very timely articulation--I'm looking at you, USA--about how despicable acts of hostility can infect, fester, and become a catalyst that curdles the mores of a whole society. Also, it's an ode to the frailty of even a despicable human condition, advancing the theory that monsters are reinforced, rather than rectified, by their environments. It's a powerful reflection on reactionary attitudes in the context of burgeoning German fascism, and on par with Gojira when it comes to measuring the troubles of its times. I give it lots of stars!

I've tried three times to watch 8 1/2, and always found it so self-indulgent and boring. But perhaps I will give it one more try....

A similar experience in my twenties and early thirties for 8 1/2, but then one day the movie utterly clicked, and it is one of my favorite films these days! Don't give up, Shelagh!

Todd doesn't like M? My reality just crumbled

J HurtadoAugust 26, 2013 1:38 PM

I watched this one (didn't have time to write my contribution) and I liked it, but it's definitely something that will require more viewings

Todd BrownAugust 26, 2013 1:57 PM

Nope, I really didn't. Sorry.

J HurtadoAugust 26, 2013 1:58 PM

I forgive you.

I found it dragged slightly too back when I watched it, but there is LOTS to love in this film, LOTS. Can't wait for the sequel: M2M

I have only seen 8 1/2 but really got swept up in it, although I'm always a sucker for films about filmmaking and the creative process. Have tickets to see it on the big screen in October, hoping to initiate the gf at the same time.
