By far the greatest zombie film ever made in which there are no zombies. All hail Lord Carpenter🙏
THIS MOVIE. It's been at the top of my watchlist for about a decade now. Shit on me for taking so long to figure out a way to finally watch it. Top tier crime film.
The goddamn slang in this movie is off the charts. I will actually watch this with subtitles next time around so I can add some crazy ass shit to my vocab. It's kinda like almost proto-Snatch/Lock Stock but way more gritty and badass because 1980 fucks. 9/10+ the hype is real on this one.
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.
