Night Tide
Night Tide (1963)
4 years ago via Flixster

One of my favorite movies, ever, if you're going to watch a Dennis Hopper movie in remembrance, I say go with Night Tide. All too hard to come by in movies especially, back in the day, like another big favorite of mine, I Know Where I'm Going!, Night Tide is an essentially realist story in which magic works anyway.

What could have been a cheapie rip on Val Lewton's themes with a slightly Lovecraftian bent becomes, in Curtis Harrington's hands, a full on old school fairy tale, the bloody original kind, for the age of Dick Tracy. Don't show your daughters the Disney Little Mermaid - show them this mermaid movie. You will not be sorry.

Contagion
Contagion (2011)

Very cool, almost too cool in its seventies-ness, if such a thing were possible. And if the rest is more or less like many other plague dramas, Jude Law's villainous homeopathic blogger should be spurring many interesting conversations for some time to come, at least.
