  • An American Dream 1966

    ★★★★ Rewatched 19 Feb, 2014

    If you're going to approach AN AMERICAN DREAM comparing it to Mailer's novel, then it will fail for you, but if you accept it as a work with elements of Mailer in it, but one that also tries to do some of its own things you'll find it very rewarding. Gist seems to have a grasp on Mailer's ideas from the novel, but yet he takes the story in a very different direction as if to satisfy his own understanding of the existential themes in Mailer's work.

  • Don't Let Go 2002

    ★★★★ Watched 19 Feb, 2014

    Damn pity this film hasn't been released yet. Made in 2002, it features one of actor Scott Wilson's finest performances as a washed-up alcoholic former rockabilly superstar who struggles to come to terms with his brother's death which he feels responsible for.
