Sunday, June 01, 1980


In Stockholm I immediately joined Filmklubben / Cinemateket / Svenska Filminstitutet, which had screenings in the heart of the city (Filmstaden) and in Filmhuset.

Великая Отечественная 20: Неизвестный cолдат / Tuntematon sota 20: Tuntematon sotilas / The Unknown War 20: The Unknown Soldier. SU/US 1978. D: Roman Karmen. video. The best episodes of the series were 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10, 17, and 19. There were strong, unforgettable images, which the cliche-ridden commentary could not spoil. The main problem: evading all difficult issues. The mistakes of the USSR and the Western allies were not discussed. As an example the case of Finland was ignored. Too many stock shots and stock sounds.
Thunderball / Pallosalama. GB 1965. D: Terence Young. Ian Fleming. Sean Connery (James Bond), Claudine Auger (Domino), Adolfo Celi (Emilio Largo). Ri-tvåan
Goldfinger / 007 ja Kultasormi. GB 1964. D: Guy Hamilton. Ian Fleming. Sean Connery (James Bond), Honor Blackman (Pussy Galore), Gert Fröbe (Goldfinger). Ri-tvåan. All Bond films seen in 1980: Goldfinger is best. Diamonds Are Forever starts the trend of stupid villains, but Connery's angry, frustrated face is intriguing. The Moore films are weaker than the Connery films, but after a weak start they started to grow. OHMSS has the funniest plot but Lazenby is not convincing. The apocalyptic theme is impressive in the cycle. It is not true that the films have gotten funnier; there is less suspense, though, and less of the absurd kind of pop humour.
