Svetlana Maksimchenko

General Director of "Moschino"

When cinema unplanned became my job

I fell in love with him even more

I think I've always had a crush on cinema. As a child, I went to the Kosmos cinemas at VDNKh and Ulan Bator at Akademicheskaya, then there was the time of video rentals and video salons. As a student, I skipped couples in "Pushkin" and "Museum of Cinema", in defense of which I later went to rallies. Then she became addicted to film festivals - I watched five films a day at the Moscow International Film Festival, did not miss Amfest and film nights at 35MM. Gradually, film screenings smoothly shifted to online, and it was time for series and “batch” viewing: for example, if Allen, then everything at once. And two years ago, when cinema unplanned became my job, I fell in love with it even more. I remember about many films, where and with whom I watched or with whom I discussed: some do not exist in memory by themselves, but are associated with people and deep stories.

Outside of the festivals - my beloved Cannes and Kinotavr - I also watch quite a lot, several films a week. There is a feeling that I do not have time to watch everything that I would like or need for work - and this is akin to the feeling that you will never be able to read all good books.

It was difficult to choose the main films for me, my favorites are under fifty. Among the listed ones, those that resonate, sink somewhere inside, are remembered years later, I want to share or revise them. From some there was only a feeling of warmth or shrillness - even the plot cannot be recalled. And somewhere a good story is important. There are films that I have forgotten, it seems, for good - until they accidentally pop up in my memory in some kind of conversation. The final list did not include the magical and important for me Miyazaki, the piercing Iñarritu, the coolest McDonagh, and many others who leave something inside. It seems that most of my favorites are from the 80s and 90s, although I watched them later. Maybe the new ones just need to lie down.

Giuseppe Tornatore, 1988

New cinema "Paradiso"

To my surprise, before starting work at Moschino, I had not even heard of this film. This is a classic Italian film from 1988 about childhood and growing up in a small Sicilian town, more precisely in the hall and control room of the Paradiso cinema, where an old projectionist teaches a boy to spin the film. This movie is about the magic of the moment when the film is loaded into the projector and the picture appears on the screen, and the film is a declaration of love for cinema in general. And nostalgia for childhood, adolescence and first love - it will definitely not do without tears.

Baz Luhrmann, 1996

Romeo + Juliet

I re-watched this musical with DiCaprio and Claire Danes this summer in London. Coincidentally, I have long wanted to get to Secret Cinema - this is a well-known immersive show for several thousand people, where the audience takes part in a theatrical action that precedes and accompanies open-air film screenings. In advance, when buying a ticket, you are assigned a role and dress code requirements are sent. So the crowd of thousands was divided into two warring clans - the Montagues and the Capulet.

Before watching the movie, you find yourself in the scenery of the movie, the heroes talk to you, storylines unfold on different sites. And when it gets dark, they open the screen and start showing, the action of which is simultaneously played out on the stage and in front of it.At the moment of the scene with the fireworks - real fireworks are shooting from behind the screen, and during the action in the church - huge copies of glowing crosses appear all over the field. But even without all these special effects, you should definitely watch or revise a non-classical interpretation of a classic story with verbatim Shakespearean texts.

Danny Boyle, 2007

Hell

I grew up on Choose life … I chose not to choose life: I chose something else, but Inferno is my most frequently watched Boyle film. Written by Alex Garland (28 Days Later, Out of the Car, Annihilation) and starring Cillian Murphy. He is one of the crew members who flies in a spaceship to the Sun in order to blow it up and warm the dying Earth at least a little. Most of all, I love the moment when the psychoanalyst sends the heroes to the relaxation room with video wallpaper, where the waves beat with all their might against the shore and spray people passing by - and the main character in his memory constantly scrolls these images from the video wallpaper.

Coco Schreiber, 2008

Fucking Mondays and strawberry tarts

I saw Bloody Mondays and Strawberry Pies at the MIFF in 2010 and in a strange way I remember it very often. These are melancholic documentary stories of several characters - about boredom and routine. World's first school shooter -

A 16-year-old girl shot eleven people in her school in the 70s and when asked why she did this from the documentary, “I just hate Mondays.” A bedouin in the desert who is not busy all day. A pastry chef girl decorating endless identical cakes with strawberries every day. An artist who has been painting "time" for forty-two years. This is a great film about longing and about the eternal questions that everyone asks themselves - for example, is it worth getting out of bed in the morning and why?

Luc Besson, 1994

Leon

As far back as I can remember, "Leon" has always been a favorite. And perhaps one of the few films with which I have no other related memories. Everything is beautiful in it: Jean Reno, Natalie Portman, Gary Oldman, New York, and the very story of friendship between a girl and a hitman, and dialogues, and music. "Do you love your flower?" - "This is my friend. Always in a good mood, does not ask questions. And he's like me too, see? Without roots. " "If you love him, plant him in the park to take root."

In the last shots, when Matilda plants a flower under Sting's "Shape of My Heart", I always cry. Another of my favorite films by Besson is The Blue Abyss of 1988, with the same Jean Reno, about the rivalry between two divers. About a passion for the abyss of the sea, which cannot be pacified. When dolphins are closer to a person than other people. My favorite scene is when he dreams of a room full of sea water. "The most difficult thing is at the very bottom." - "Why?" “We need to find a reason to get back upstairs. I haven’t found one yet.”

Wim Wenders, 1999

Million Dollars Hotel

The most underestimated film, in my opinion, is Wenders' film, and even based on a script by Bono. My dear one - for absurdism, freakishness and insanity, for the fact that he was, in general, filmed on the verge of a foul. If possible, look in the original, without translation.

“After I jumped … I thought life is wonderful. Life is the best. It is full of magic and beauty … possibilities and television. And surprises, lots of surprises. Yes. There is something that everyone strives for … but they feel it only when everything passes. And it just amazed me. I don't think you understand it so clearly … when you realize that you are alive."

Wong Kar-Wai, 2007

My blueberry nights

"What's wrong with blueberry pie?" “Nothing, people just make a different choice. You can't blame the blueberry pie. It's just that nobody wants him."

A romantic film that I would like to live in. Each frame is like a painting - it's Wong Kar-Wai. Even if you're not watching, listen to the soundtrack - and the title track "The Story" by Norah Jones. Cafe "Klyuch" somewhat reminds me of my favorite place "People as People" on "Kitay-Gorod", there is also a blueberry pie there.

Woody Allen, 1994

Bullets over Broadway

I love Woody Allen's films, almost everything.And both old and new. Bullets Over Broadway is one of the most beloved comedies, really funny: the backstage life of Broadway meets the gangster world of New York in the 20s. The last time I watched the film was a long time ago, but now I wanted to review it. "Waiter! Please, two ice martinis! " - "How did you guess that I wanted exactly an ice martini?" - “And you too? Then three."

Pedro Almodovar, 1997

Living flesh

Almodovar is another favorite director, especially the old, classic one. "Living Flesh" is a film-passion and a film-sex, a story about the impossibility of resisting an impulse. Love triangle, everything is intertwined and confused, as always with Almodovar, and of course - tragic and poignant.

Michael Anderson, 1976

Logan's Escape

A dystopia from the 70s that after thirty there is no life. I was advised by an American journalist, I think, to talk about the thirtieth birthday, although I don’t remember exactly. After a nuclear war on Earth, the heroes of the film live in a sub-dome city in the futuristic interiors of the 70s (a joy for the eyes), spend time in entertainment, have sex and sports, and are waiting for their thirties. After the age of thirty, everyone is destroyed - life is only for the young. The hero Logan is one of those who must catch fugitives who for some reason wanted to live after thirty. But he is also thirty and needs to run too. In the long-debated remake, Logan was supposed to be played by Ryan Gosling. I would have liked that, but alas, he left the project.

Stefan Elliott, 1999

Witness

Not that a very famous Canadian film starring Ewan McGregor and Ashley Judd. She is a murderer, he is a detective who cannot bring himself to stop tracking. Peeping through the keyhole, killing her and saving her - it is not clear which is more. A longing film about broken lives and the loss of children and love. About the impossibility of being together and the insurmountable distance between people, even if they are very close. Very sad.
