Gorgeous talky dream biography. This film never lets you focus on any of the spectacular human and environmental details that whizz past you as you try to follow the myriad of conversations that people are having with the main character. The filmmaking is poetic, and it seems to change each time I watch. If you're in the mood for a beautiful film (its ok, it sometimes happens to me too), I recommend this one.

I have to respectfully disrespect jk2two in my rating of this movie. I was quite charmed by the accidental brilliance of this movie. An experience similar to that of watching an Ed Wood film - the film succeeds in ways that it never intended (not my quote). If you watch the film analyticaly, then yes - the movie is like a gore-porn in that the scenes are just filler between the lurid gore. However, let yourself watch the film without pretext, and you may find yourself as charmed as I was. I guess you have to watch "innocently", as if you have never heard of H.G. Lewis. Is that even possible?

Halloween III - Season of the Witch

Third "unsequel" to the (my opinion) overrated Halloween series. So. Much. Walking. Around. On film. Sheesh, cut all that walking around out, and this film would run about 25 minutes and would be great as an episode in an anthology movie. Just an idea. Kill scenes are actually pretty fun - just not enough of them between walking around. Did I mention that the director never missed an opportunity to show the characters walking from one place to another?

Bullitt

Violent, hip crime drama starring a Mustang GT and a Charger R/T. Often imitated, never duplicated crime drama influenced generations of crime films and TV shows. McQueen's cop character is the progenitor of the 'lone wolf' cop who answerrs to no one. Yates expertly crafted each shot and scene to hold up under scrutiny. A really beautiful cinematic experience each time I watch it. Oh, and for the record: the Charger loses (6) hubcaps during the chase scene, and it is a '68 Charger R/T with a 440 Magnum (375bhp & 625 ft/lbs torque) and not a Hemi like previously believed.

Severance

Nice, economical budget flick from England - the land of blood and laughs. The humor is played down more than other British horror/comedies you may have seen. However, the humor is really clever and the story and characters are engaging. Not a monumental horror film, but a very good, expertly crafted one. Try to catch the Dr. Strangelove references!
