  • Carrie 1976

    ★★★★½ Watched 30 Sep, 2014

    The true testament to the excellence of Carrie is that despite just about everyone coming into this already knowing its famed climax, Brian De Palma crafts such a manipulative mood that you almost believe everything's going to work out for Carrie.

    This is helped greatly with Sissy Spacek' s wonderful performance along with Piper Laurie as her mother. The score is also a very strong asset, moving and changing along with Carrie, with sweet scenes sounding sweet and haunting scenes…

    ★★★★ Watched 25 Aug, 2013

    With The People vs. Larry Flynt being my third film into Milos Forman's so far excellent filmography I've found a similar threads throughout his works, primarily in his protagonists' desire to question and change and push the envelope of the worlds around them. With Jack McMurphy in Cuckoo's Nest he was pushing the insane asylum to its limit, and in Man on the Moon Andy Kaufman was taking comedy and entertainment above and beyond where people thought it could go.…
