10 on the 10th – July 2015

We always love hearing what people are watching – good or bad – and have a real fondness for Film Comment‘s recurring feature “The Last 10 Films I’ve Seen,” where a prominent cinema figure provides a short list of their last viewings.  In that spirit, we’ll try to post on the 10th of each month the last 10 films we’ve watched.  Most of the films below were very, very good (even great), but be warned – Roller Blade was virtually unwatchable, despite its singularly preposterous premise of an ’80s roller-skated dystopia.  Fans of good-bad should keep their distance.

  1. The Light at the Edge of the World (Kevin Billington, 1971)Roller Blade
  2. Travels of Hibari and Chiemi 2: The Lovebird’s 1000 Ryo Umbrella (Tadashi Sawashima, 1963)
  3. Red Army (Gabe Polsky, 2014)
  4. Tora-san’s Dream-Come-True (Yoji Yamada, 1972)
  5. Ride the Pink Horse (Robert Montgomery, 1947)
  6. The Congress (Ari Folman, 2013)
  7. The Super Cops (Gordon Parks, 1974)
  8. Roller Blade (Donald G. Jackson, 1986)
  9. Conquest (Lucio Fulci, 1983)
  10. Travels of Hibari and Chiemi: The Tumultuous Journey (Tadashi Sawashima, 1963)
