The Plague (1992) Brandon Judell The subject of a city ravished by a contagious disease couldn't be more relevant. But the project is steeped in pretension and inept direction. You'll want to get vaccinated by the time it ends. EDIT

9/10 A Streetcar Named Desire (1951) Brandon Judell Also screened was A Streetcar Named Desire, revamped with the four additional minutes that were excised years ago by censors. It was being paraded about as if a half-hour had been added. So now Stella walks down the steps sultrily. EDIT

5/10 On Our Merry Way (1948) Brandon Judell The highlight is Lamour singing a spoof about her on-screen sarong persona. For some fetishists, seeing Meredith's shaven bare chest might supply another. EDIT

0/10 Amy's Orgasm (2001) Brandon Judell Julie Davis is the Kathie Lee Gifford of film directors, sadly proving once again ego doesn't always go hand in hand with talent. EDIT

3/10 Zombie! vs. Mardi Gras (1999) Brandon Judell On the plus side, there's lots of female nudity, several drag queens, a fart-filled murder, plus a killing in the midst of a piss. EDIT
