Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice (1969)
Daring to deconstruct the parameters we set in relationships and sex. The foursome glow exploring sexual hypocrisies and reciting the truth no one wants to hear. 24-Mar-2019
Naughty or Nice (1939)
A gifted songwriter can only love when he's drunk. The maid is named Killer and the actors add snap to their wit. It's gay vintage. 29-Dec-2018
Holiday Affair (1949)
A sober Christmas treatise made with no fuss.
It was a forward example.
The Christmas gift was an alpha. 25-Dec-2018
Foxy Brown (1974)
The material doesn't spark but a slice of home and a plenitude of attitude make up for the pinch. Grier is gorgeous disciplinarian. 16-Nov-2018
Star Trek II: The Wrath of Kahn (1982)
It's an old friend I had no idea I made. It's everything it pretends to be. 12-Nov-2018
Richard Pryor: Omit The Logic (2013)
His upbringing decided what he would become but his art established how we remember him. He admitted his shortcomings, paid a penance and allowed us to think past the laughter. 28-Sep-2018
A grand illusion envisioned by perfectionists. Bergman contains her judgment and allows history to determine as Brynner showcases the array of his Jedi talent. The film commits to its deception. 24-Sep-2018
The macho pose may seem off date but who cares when the master has proliferated a grand illusion and Zoe Saldana is gut wrenched. 15-Sep-2018
Herbie: Fully Loaded (2005)
The direction zips amusingly, the performers are at peak charisma and the tricked out bug has a personality. It's bubblegum joy. 01-Aug-2018
A Raisin In The Sun (1961)
Our predecessors left us an honest slice of life art to authenticate their struggles and to cultivate resolution for their successors. The players are fierce and representative, the writing/directing excels in depiction and respect and the past allows us to retrospect and opine our future. Respect. 31-May-2018
Exorcist, The (1973)
Nightmare of my childhood dreams. It scared the Jesus out of me and allowed me to champion fear. It's also a metaphor for how parents perceive teenage evolution. 29-May-2018
Birds, The (1963)
The birds fly parallel to the women, whom are prone to devise, be territorial but isolated. It isn't until they start flocking together that the birds let up. Most of the mystery lays in the mind of the master and the star he artistically immortalized. 31-Dec-2017
Johnny Eager (1941)
Robert Taylor plays a hood hellbent on street cred by subjugating his past and flaunting his fortitude. Lana is an unappreciated diamond whose badboy fangirl status welcomes tragedy and Van Heflin is a dulcet toned philosopher lackey who farts predictions of everyone with words so striking they agitate the heart.
It's gangster mature that celebrates the completion of man when he embraces his soul.
Taylor hunts and kills for the egg, Lana boils and serves the egg and Heflin eats it. 20-Dec-2017
Scrooge (1935) - in color
The presentation is raw and color adds a bit more warmth. The haunt is sober with no fuss. 18-Dec-2017
Baby Doll (1956)
Baby Doll is not a child but a 19 year old bride to a man who bought her. Her only power is sex and her unwillingness to depart with it until her 20th b'day. A battle ensues between men that present her with the opportunity to dish it to the highest bidder.
Tennessee creates strong women whose vulnerability lies with the man who takes it. Baby Doll grows up but the system is incapable of providing her self sufficiency.
Williams is still a master of blatant provocation as Kazan is compelled to art.
Baker is raw talent with Grade A movie star presence. Wallach is gripped masher. Karl Malden plays the husband like the insecure man who has to buy love in a very expensive world. Mildred Dunnock's character power is stupidity because if the men notice her they'd be displeased. Ms. Dunnock is given a moment to showcase and she doesn't disappoint. I felt the burnout.
Like all big dick contests, one cock wins, it spirals into violence as white man burdens the town with his privilege.
The author decided not to cap it with a conclusion because we get to decide it.
I was watching a part of history that is no longer applicable because the men in our present, would like to revert to that.
