Οι καλύτερες ταινίες του παγκόσμιου κινηματογράφου από τον πιο αυστηρό οδηγό!!!



 

Ο "HALLIWELL'S FILM GUIDE" θεωρείται ο πιο αυστηρός αλλά και ο πιο ακριβοδίκαιος -όσο δύσκολο και αν είναι αυτό- κινηματογραφικός οδηγός του κόσμου. Πρωτοκυκλοφόρησε στην Αγγλία το 1977 από την κριτικό κινηματογράφου  Leslie Halliwell και συνεχίζει να εκδίδεται υπό την διεύθυνση του John Walker. H ανώτατη διάκριση που μπορεί να βάλει σε μια ταινία είναι τα τέσσερα αστέρια και η συνήθης....κανένα! Διάκριση του Halliwell με δύο αστέρια σημαίνει πολύ καλό έργο και με  τρία αστέρια σημαίνει: εργάρα! Για να καταλάβετε το μέγεθος της αυστηρότητας αρκεί να σας αναφέρω ότι μέχρι τον οδηγό του 2006 που περιλαμβάνει όλες  τις ταινίες της παγκόσμιας παραγωγής από καταβολής κινηματογράφου μέχρι και το 2005 -από τον οποίο είναι και η λίστα που σας παραθέτω- 22.500 ταινίες συνολικά και μόνο 257 από αυτές φέρουν την διάκριση των τεσσάρων αστεριών (****). Είναι επίσης άξιο προσοχής ότι το 1985  έκανε μια αλλαγή στη λίστα της καλύτερης δεκάδας και στην πρώτη θέση αντί για το Citizen Kane(1941) του Orson Welles πέρασε το Tokyo Story(1953) του Yasujiro Ozu. Και το ότι για κάποιες χρονιές δεν υπάρχει τετράστερη αξιολόγηση. Έχουμε και λέμε λοιπόν:

Σημείωση: περιδιαβαίνοντας αυτή την 90χρονη  λίστα εντυπωσιάζεται, νομίζω, κανείς από την κινηματογραφική έκρηξη που παρατηρείται κατά τη δεκαετία του '30 διαρκούσης της μεγάλης οικονομικής κρίσης καθώς και στα επόμενα χρόνια του πολέμου, γιατί ο κινηματογράγος ήταν η πιο φτηνή διασκέδαση, οι δημιουργοί ήθελαν να στείλουν κάποια μηνύματα και δεν υπήρχε ακόμη η τηλεόραση και το διαδίκτυο.

Μεγάλη επιμονή στα critics' darlings. Κι όσο πλησιάζουμε στο σήμερα, νομίζω χάνει λίγο το μέτρο... Ωστόσο, παραμένει εξαιρετικός οδηγός. Thanks crispy :)
