Nobody Lives Forever (1946)
Gangster serving time in the army is released into a scam that involves sucker punching a widow for her money. The gangsters are divided by type but united by greed. The old timer that you can trust but has run out of gimmicks, the roughneck always by your side until the tide changes, there are tramp gangsters whose limitations and penchant for violence grants them misery, the stud with athletic edges that make the girls swoon is unmatched and most wanted and the moles destruct what the competition makes worthwhile. Garfield is thug sophistication, smarts with an aggressive charm and a daddy with a heart of gold that's going to generate much trouble. It isn't art but its tipping its hat to it. Faye Emerson scratches louder than Geraldine Fitzgerald's screams and "Mr. Gladys Kravitz" was funny. 11-Oct-2020
Cast A Dark Shadow (1955)
Gigolo with big dick aspirations and doofy looks learns he can coast on rich seniors before the invention of surgery gave them a choice. He was the professional husband that made grandmas' heart's reel with the wet joys of becoming a princess again. When he misconstrues what a will is and adoringly sets his social security plan on fire, accusations, cover-ups, intrigue, psychosis, mystery, double-cross and an entertaining 90 Day Fiancee vibe without the hassles of passports or visas ensues. 01-Oct-2020
What Keeps You Alive (2018)
Brittany Allen has a face you follow especially when great material meets her. Psychopathic danger presented for lesbians and personifying all women. Talking it out before every kill and expressing feelings that don't make sense has returned to cinema. The film flashes to the threat so quickly that its fallback is to drag and repeat. The director didn't shake the camera for bumps and the cutter had no guts. I admired the video twist and the cruel kill. I return to Allen because when all other characters drained, it was her face that maintained me. 11-Aug-2020
Once You Kiss A Stranger (1969)
Strangers on a Train stop at Fatal Attraction. Carol Lynley is a Peter Pan wet dream that never relents. She scares children with harpoon guns, she brawls with pet cats and she threatens old people with off-color gossip, death fascinations and frequent visits. Her mental health is homicidal. Ms. Lynley unbinds from daddy adoration and shakes her personal hate towards everyone. The daddies have expiration dates and are being coerced into reclaiming #1 status or lose thoughts of ever having a "good time,"again. Once an unknown pixie enters a married man's hotel room with her nightie on, he's fucked. The tribute is soaped up and spread out, the stunts are hilarious and the actors don't lose a beat. It stings and entertains, like mexican candy. 29-Jul-2020
River's Edge (1986)
Friendships are unrealized when a mate kills one.
The kids react like chained animals. They're curious, they don't really feel anything but they know it's wrong.
The parents have stopped pretending. The miraculous is a teenager too complicated to bear. The kids may be exploring and exploding in their new life but the parents are just holding on to any kind of life. The parents share their drugs, problems, violence and sexuality. They absolve the kids' of choices they socially incur and never check out what they are.
Crispin Glover was a high that had me swaying all kinds of ways. Good and awful.
Keanu waved his hair back and forth like an urchin destined for greater things.
When the writing goes over, truth reins it in.
The musical score kept the story breathing.
The director pinpointed everything we needed to see and hear. Its aroma was DePalma.
The final analysis for murder is realistic and unjustifiably hard.
Being one of the most sensitive beings in the world does not always grant empathy.
Snitches get laid. (It's a tongue thing.) 25-Jun-2020
Night Clerk, The (2020)
Twink with alternative intelligence witnesses a crime. The crime is not its basis of joy but the performers are. The four (Hunt, Leguizamo, de Armas and Sheridan pull the right face, exhume the right emotions, and challenge anyone to do it better. 12-Jun-2020
Wicker Man, The (1973)
Christian copper investigates missing child on pagan island. Edward Woodward keeps it desperate and unleashing, the atmosphere is lawless and unethical and the music lilts as well as unsettle. The horror isn't physically evident but mentally, it sticks like gum to a shoe. 19-May-2020
Dangerous Lies (2020)
A windfall may or may not kill you. The beat (director) was persuasive, the concoction (writing) was unique, the conclusion was a letdown but I admired a lot of it. Camila Mendes was level and engaging. Jessie T. Usher was reckless asshole sublime and proud of it. 18-May-2020
Daughter of Shanghai (1937)
Smuggling asians to America for slave labor. It's big on gumption because the makers gambled on a "good eye". There is a jolt of celebration in seeing ourselves being portrayed in a prohibitive era. The film is incomplete, scarcely budgeted and cold in character development. It's not its fault. What blesses it, is Anna May Wong's illumination and a supporting cast that keep it burning. The characters were typed to be as they were. 13-May-2020
Third Day, The (1965)
Can a man become an enlightened human if an accident causes him amnesia? Not if your mug is still wanted for murder.
George Peppard is grand business daddy, never demurring from blankness while still eliciting great face.
Elizabeth Ashley was privileged bitch wife, with an redemptive opportunity for love and a zestful beauty of another.
Sally Kellerman knew how to turn it on and shut men down.
Mona Washbourne elicited comic wit relief and parental heartbreak.
Roddy McDowell. The best cocksucker in Hollywood actually had other talents.
Arte Johnson crept trying to put a creepy face on a "love me" persona.
Music. It sounded like every summer blockbuster score rolled into one.
It's sumptuously over, to guiltily enjoy. 11-May-2020
Black Widow (1954)
Befriending pretty young things is bad for a man's health and his marriage. Van Heflin is joy of talent, uncoiling his anger at every surprise turn and thrashing women like an equal. Gene Tierney upholds the confused and doting wife, Peggy Ann Garner adds vulnerability to her con and Ginger Rogers sparkles as an empowered success story, dethroning men and failing at everything except bravado. People ponder with intelligence, the crime keeps flooding and the bitchfest hums. 23-Apr-2020
No Way Out (1950)
Black doctor cares for two supremacist thugs. Race riot ensues when one dies. The movie is forthright and balanced with chills of emotions. Poitier is standard upright in a younger package. Widmark splatters the screen with hate like he meant it. Linda Darnel was the damsel in distress with heroic genes. Amanda Randolph deserves loads of cuddles for being. Mildred Joanne Smith was luminous at heart. It's an everlasting battle to fight for what our greater parents started. 20-Apr-2020
Boston Strangler, The (1968)
Sex choking was once frowned upon. The investigation is encyclopedic, the case stimulates, the actors vibrate and the director engineers massive art flourish. We eagerly anticipate the Tony Curtis show and he doesn't disappoint. He strips down to his DNA, extending the psychosis and the lack of control that curses a killer. 14-Apr-2020
The movie where JLo snatched her talent back. The ladies are gloriously scintillating as the caper is fermented. 22-Dec-2019
