  • The Sister of Ursula

    The Sister of Ursula 1978

    Watched 27 Jan, 2016

    Some gorgeous locations and very nice railing decor but it's heavily padded with sex scenes and the plot seems to have been knocked out without bothering to read through it. Nothing really makes sense. Narcotics cops, paranormal abilities, hairy people shagging. Why? Just to fill up time, I guess.

    Weak effort.

    One star for the lovely railings.

    ★★½ Watched 25 Jan, 2016

    I rather liked it, just not quite enough.

    I can't really critisce it other than to say it was somewhat lacklustre, it could have been a bit darker, a bit of grim humour, but the final act is decent and I like the lead actress (by which I mean I hoped she got murdered. I mean that as a compliment).

    A solid half marks movie.

    I am astonished that someone with such an eye for a beautiful shot can now turn out something that looks so made for TV. Bad made for TV. Stupid, stupid casting, bad writing, awful acting... This would never be a good film, but when compared to Deep Red or Bird With The Crystal Plumage it's an embarrassment.

    Fantastic movie, I love it more every time I watch it. It looks beautiful (even if most of the gang costumes are mental), moves at a fair clip and the editing of the fight scenes elevate them from the usual tough guy 70s punch ups to something snappier and more fluid. Despite the knives and baseball bats brandished, this is not your usual action film, but a gorgeous, light slicked dance by desperate people, wronged and wanting home.
