Field survey: the poll results
This has got to be one of the most interesting lists I’ve come across in a long time. It is an informal survey of key film-related writings and cinematic events over the past ten years or so as highlighted by film scholars. There is a lot here to chew on. Thanks Girish for posting this at Dr. Mabuse’s Kaleido-Scope.

The opening shot from The Enigma of Kaspar Hauser (1974), a.k.a. Every Man for Himself and God Against All:

This is one of my favorite opening shots. From the first time I saw it on video, somewhere in the mid 1980s, it has haunted me.

Over at their blog Kristin Thompson and David Bordwell wish classical cinema a happy birthday. They pick 1917 as the key year. They list Chaplin’s The Immigrant as one of the important films of that year.
