    Color of Night 1994

    ★½ Watched 11 Jun, 2016

    There's some nice giallo touches in this ridiculous "sexy" thriller, but it's probably the stupidest film ive ever seen in my life., made all the worse because I suspect they thought they were being quite clever. I don't know if the reveal is meant to come as a surprise as its screamingly obvious from the start. 

    Also the sight of Bruce Willis' penis has fair put me off my tea.

    ★★★½ Watched 29 May, 2016

    Strong performances from all three of the cast, plenty of tension crammed into a short run time and an avoidance of the usual Brit crime cliches make this a gripping kidnap drama.

    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.
