Psychomania (1971)
2 years ago via Flixster

British biker brats with the disposition of Droogs take a death trip back to the land of the living, who they terrorize on the highways for hijinks. Aside from that, there are Faustian figures, frogs, the fuzz and ... that's it. But dig this, man: It's a fiendishly funky ride.

Drive (2011)
4 years ago via Flixster

The stylish, synth-saturated 80's neo-noir films of Michael Mann, Walter Hill and William Friedkin. The existentialist minimalism of Alejandro Jodorowsky, Jean-Pierre Melville or Monte Hellman. If John Carpenter in his heyday directed a crime thriller with a getaway car instead of "Christine". "A violent John Hughes movie," according to Ryan Gosling. "Drive" is all of the above, yet the film never feels crammed by its dozen influences, which are worn on its eclectic sleeve without becoming a hollow pastiche.

Faccia a faccia (Face to Face)
4 years ago via Flixster

A powerful political and moral allegory presented as a solid slice of spaghetti western "artertainment," Sollima's "FaF" rivals the best of the other two Sergios' work (Corbucci and Leone).

The Grand Duel (Il Grande duello)
4 years ago via Flixster

Directed by one of Sergio Leone's proteges, it's not as grand as il maestro's work, but any Spaghetti Western fanatic will find much to love in this sleek "pistol pasta" opera with a noir undercurrent.

Cut and Run
Cut and Run (1985)
4 years ago via Flixster

The late, lovely Lisa Blount is a reporter who tracks down a drug cartel run by South American natives and their Colonel Kurtz-like leader (the reliable Richard Lynch). Flesh-ripping, head-chopping carnage and sleaze ensues. Ruggero Deodato's jungle adventure is relatively restrained compared to his "Cannibal Holocaust", the notoriously nasty last word on tropical tastelessness which subtly (!) sends up the cannibalistic news media. "Cut and Run" revisits that commentary, but with stronger production values. While you can't get more dubious than an ultra-violent exploitation flick that indicts media exploitation of violence, it's an effective and tightly-directed thriller. Look for future "ER" star Eriq La Salle as a pimp!
