Caine Mutiny, The
(1954 Edward Dmytryk)

svensk titel: Myteriet på Caine

'The Caine Mutiny' is a classic film about the unstable Captain Queeg (Humphrey Bogart) and his tumultuous command of an old minesweeper and her weary crew. On the high seas during the dramatic battles of World War II, Queeg's by-the-book approach pushes his crew and his popular second-in-command, Lt. Maryk (Van Johnson), to the breaking point. After a series of questionable orders, Maryk confronts Queeg when he orders the ship directly into the path of a deadly typhoon. Maryk invokes naval code and relieves Queeg of his command, forcing the crew to mutiny. Once safely back in port, Maryk is court-martialed for treason, setting off a tense trial that exposes the true state of Queeg's mind.
Nominated for Best Actor, Humphrey Bogart gives a searing performance as he is systematically broken down in this classic tale of military conduct in a time of war.

Canterbury Tales
(1972 Pier Paolo Pasolini) 50:-

originaltitel: I racconti di Canterbury

The second part of Pasolini’s Trilogy of Life (beginning with The Decameron and ending with Arabian Nights), is based on the fourteenth century stories of Geoffrey Chaucer. Plunging with gusto into some of the blackest and bawdiest of the tales, Pasolini celebrates almost every conceivable form of sexual act with a rich, earthy humour and weaves a visual magic that draws on the work of artists such as Bruegel and Bosch.

From legendary director Richard Attenborough comes the epic story of a true cinematic icon, Charlie Chaplin.

In this award-winning masterpiece we follow Chaplin's increasingly complicated life from a poverty stricken music hall entertainer in England to eventual triumph in America.
The story of Chaplin is the story of cinema as we watch him grow from developing silent era slapstick to becoming one of the most important, pioneering fathers of film making, the art-form of a new century. But although he was able to reflect wondrous, magical humour in his work his private life was afflicted with infamy, sadness and a growing sense of loss.

(1969 Charles Marquis Warren) 50:-

When Elvis Presley first appeared on screen, fans and critics alike called him the next James Dean. Everyone was shocked when "The King" was actually a credible actor.
His films exploited his youth appeal and crammed the running time with Presley music numbers and as time went on, the plots became more and more ludicrous, the songs less memorable. This was not lost on Presley, who was getting more and more bored with his screen assignments. He wanted to do something more challenging, a film befitting his early dramatic promise. He found that vehicle in one of his last screen appearances - Charro! This time, he played it straight. Clearly influenced by the successful Clint Eastwood/Sergio Leone series, this film is gritty and cynical. But most importantly, Presley proved once again that he could act. Reviewers at the time were impressed with Presley's performance and in retrospect, it makes one wish Presley had more challenging acting opportunities.

City Lights
(1931 Charles Chaplin)

svensk titel: Stadens Ljus

‘City Lights’ begins with an uproarious skewering of pomp and formality, ends with one of the most famous last shots in movie history and, from start to finish, so completely touches the heart and tickles the funny bone that in 1998 it was named one of the American Film Institute’s Top-100 American
Films. Talkies were well entrenched when Charles Chaplin swam against the filmmaking tide with this forever classic that’s silent except for music and sound effects. The story, involving the Tramp’s attempts to get money for an operation that will restore sight to a blind flower girl, provides a star with an ideal framework for sentiment and laughs. The tramp is variously a street sweeper, a boxer, a rich 0poseur, and a rescuer of a suicidal millionaire. His message is unspoken, but universally understood: love is blind.
