  • Two Men in Town

    Two Men in Town 1973

    Watched 24 Apr, 2015

    Eventually gets to focus upon the point it is making in the final 30 minutes… though i am still unsure if it was soon enough.
    But whew, this last 2 minutes. Jeez.

  • The Trial

    The Trial 1962

    ★★★ Watched 10 Jan, 2015

    Lots of great care in character action & brilliant angles. I do wonder sometimes about the audio editing work, however.
    Thematically, you might also look up Anthony Perkins' role in "Evening Primrose." Shorter, certainly but a great pairing.

  • All Night Long

    All Night Long 1962

    ★★★★ Watched 01 Jan, 2015

    Nifty & breezy retelling of Othello in the 60's London Jazz scene. While McGoohan's accent is miserable, he exudes the slimeball darn well in these Johnnie/Iago machinations. But having Dave Brubeck & Charlie Mingus carefully, lovingly captured on film is icing on the cake.

  • Jackass: The Movie

    Jackass: The Movie 2002

    ★★★★ Rewatched 18 Jan, 2012

    I was there opening weekend. However, I'd never seen Jackass' MTV iteration. Walking into this mindless entertainment was unexpected then, but somehow still as enjoyable 10 years later... with the exception of the Snow Cone & the Papercuts. Because I'm still as much of a wuss as I was 10 years ago & can't watch those.
