    Serena Grandi is a total bae. Otherwise this is nothing special so the 3 star rating is rather generous lol.

    ★★★½

    I wish Carpenter directed this. It feels like something of a missed opportunity. It definitely could have been a lot sleazier and more stylish like the best gialli are. I still liked it a lot and feel it's a bit underrated if anything. Super young Tommy Lee Jones is fun, and I'm pretty much in love with Darlanne Fluegel.

    Congo

    ★★★½

    Congo has my vote for the greatest bad film of all time. Things that make it awesome include but are certainly not limited to: an outrageously campy scene where Delroy Lindo calmly requests then promptly and inexplicably shouts "STOP EATING MY SESAME CAKE", murderous grey gorillas, silly Bruce Campbell, avaricious Joe Don Baker, charismatic Joe Pantoliano, The Lost City of Zinj (aka King Solomon's Mines with a more exotic name), Amy the talking gorilla, and of course Tim Curry's preposterous character, Herkermer Homolka, who is more obsessed with diamonds than anyone ever.

    ★★★★

    I’m digging Sirk lately for sure. Magnificent Obsession was pretty sweet, but Imitation of Life feels much more ambitious and complete. The film as expected looks great in lavish Technicolor, and its multilayered story is very engaging. The acting was phenomenal with Lana Turner giving her best performance and of course Juanita Moore is the real star of the film.
