Marathon Man

As I continue revisiting my favorite movies of the past, the next one up is Marathon Man, from 1976. This isn’t one of the small number of films that I’ve seen countless times, but I have seen it several times. I’d guess this most recent time was the fourth or fifth time I’ve watched it […]

Lupin (2021)

The acclaimed new French action mystery series Lupin is as deceptive as it is enthralling. It’s one of those shows where you can’t look away for even a moment; you could miss something important. You might even miss something that you’d think is crucial but isn’t: something planted to trick you. It’s a maze. But […]

The Seattle Supernatural Slasher – Malignant (2021)

Cutting out the cancer. So this is about a woman named Madison (Annabelle Wallis). She has the worst sleep paralysis of all time because she slips away to another place entirely and witnesses gruesome murders. They’re not just bad dreams, though, they are actually happening. I knew three things about this going in: 1. This […]

Le Samouraï

I remember seeing a quote from one of my favourite directors, Jim Jarmusch. He is an inspiration of mine and there was an article with him released back in 2004. The article was about his golden rules of filmmaking. They included: Rule #1: There are no rules. There are as many ways to make a […]

The Ladykillers: Corrosive, Dark And Beautifully British

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Rating: 8 out of 10. As if I wasn’t going to dip my toe in for more Peter Sellers! Yes, the pre-eminent British comedian returns, but nine years earlier than Dr. Strangelove in 1955 comedy The Ladykillers – yet, Sellers isn’t the one that steals the show… The plot is simple, yet oh-so-effective: dapper […]

Flashback: Fargo (1996)

There’s a twisted part of me that considers Fargo (1996) to be a comedy. I don’t think the Coen Brothers would contest this. In fact, I think they were going for comedy all along. A coworker and friend of mine introduced me to the movie experience collection app, Letterboxd. If you are an avid movie […]

The Fortune

Turning up on Amazon Prime’s streaming service like a lost sock, Mike Nichols’ forgotten comedy is a star-powered throwback to the screwball comedy era, top-lined by Jack Nicholson and Warren Beatty. Comedy and period revivals were a big deal in the 70’s, from What’s Up Doc? To The Sting, but The Fortune, despite an illustrious […]

Classic Film Review: Hoffman’s at his toughest doing “Straight Time” (1978)

Looking back, I think that two movies shaped and/or reinforced my views on “the criminal mind,” the folks who rob, cheat, vandalize and threaten as if they were born to it. “Donnie Brasco” (1998) set in stone my hunch that what Deep Throat said about the Watergate Burglars and the GOP leadership holds true for […]
