    The Seven Minutes

    ★★★

    Kind of Meyer's ANATOMY OF A MURDER, complete with his staccato edits, busty babes, sudden slapstick, and sprinkled-in Nazi references. As much fun as that is the sharpness of his wrath for institutional hypocrisy and prudishness is pretty badly undercut by the focus here on an obscenity trial and possible railroading of a couple of boys rather than the violent sexual assault of a young woman which is mostly used as a catalyzer that then goes completely unresolved.

    ★★★★

    This is as searing and vital as you've heard, although (and I'm aware this makes me sound terrible) I wish they could have left Gene Gene the Dancing Machine out of it.

    ★★★

    I believe it was Howard Hawks who said "A good movie is a handful of reasonably funny scenes and like eight garbage improv-y momentum-killing ones, and a bunch of cameos, whatever, I don't know."

    ★★★★

    Last gun in the valley.

    Best one of these in a really long time. You'd think it'd get old the 267th time those claws go through a dude's face, but...it doesn't.
