Yvette Banek Seven Days in May (1964); The Ghost Breakers
A 1965 Canadian short film, both like and unlike Nobody Waved Good-Bye in some of its earnest awkwardness, yet much more indulgent in the emerging "mainstreaming" of surrealist technique in film, particularly angry young person film, of the mid 1960s. An early role for Michael Sarrazin, not looking 18 (he was in his mid-twenties) at a time when (I guess) Canada, like the States, still had legal majority beginning at age 21. Interesting, and actually almost good, and worth seeing once...particularly for students of this kind of film-making. It would make a good double-feature with The White Bus as well as with the other NFB production.
You're No Good by George Kaczender, National Film Board of Canada
Always liked Michael S. I wonder what happened to him. Will look him up.
Odd to think that he died at the not Too surprising age of 70 (for passing, that is) not too long ago. Just in case we needed another reminder that it ain't 1975 any longer.
Todd, thanks very much for the inclusion of my previous reviews. That's really nice of you. I'm giving finish touches to a short piece ON FARGO. Should have it ready inside of an hour.
Todd, if you're in the mood, here's a Canadian turkey, with American stuffing: The Kidnapping of the President.
The film post for today is up and running now, Todd. It's SEVEN DAYS IN MAY. Don't know where you got THE GHOSTBREAKERS from...that's an old post. But thanks.
I go looking, Yvette. Thanks, to all three of you.
Used to enjoy NFB films back in the day. They were so proudly noncommercial. This one also shows the influence of the New Wave from France.
Exactly, though so does NOBODY WAVED GOOD-BYE...albeit the latter in being the grandchild of Italian neo-realism, much as was the likes of THE 400 BLOWS or FORBIDDEN GAMES, while this one is almost as much the sibling of Richard Lester movies...though not trying to be too funny...
You didn't notice my entry on the Kiss film, Todd!
Sorry, Juri! An aversion to KISS might've contributed...will include it next week, as well.
thanks for sharing.
