    ★★★★½

    Initially I thought it was a nice restrained, tasteful piece, but a bit timid. Beautiful shots, tasteful, intriguing, but not exciting.  Surprisingly because, well, it’s Fulci. No ocular devastation?

    Then, the third act hit, and omg what a transformation. Unbelievable skill in painting atmosphere, tension, editing, music,neo-gothic Beauty… just wow. Will have to rewatch that a few times.


    Oh, and about the eyes… Jennifer O’Neil’s eyes are so mesmerising in this, and obviously adored by Fulci. I suspect the original…

    Even better than I remember. Great Criterion release, with lovely extras.

    Most underrated Scorsese, but one of his most most enjoyable outings. And damn, New York looks just neo-noir perfect in this.

    Completely underrated, very good heroic bloodshed vehicle for Chow Yun Fat and Ti Lung. The only reason this gets meh reviews because people place it next to A Better Tomorrow, and it's not quite in that league. (Well, duh)

    This however is way better than its reputation. Both leads are charismatic and fun to watch, with some nice character moments. I didn't find the typical HK tonal meandering a problem at all, in fact I think it added to the experience.

    Final third features some damn fine action, and possibly the most devastating shotgun I've ever seen on film.

    ★★½

    I must have missed something because this was very very janky. Terrible (beyond normal terrible) acting, even worse (beyond normal) scene direction, terrible editing... the lot. The fights are pretty good, and I've seen plenty of so-so martial arts efforts elevated to seriously entertaining by great fight direction and choreography, but... this ain't it.
