    Week: 32 Jukebox Musical Week

    Somewhat of a black sheep in the musical world, jukebox musicals have their place...for tourists. Wanna make a musical but know fuck all about writing music? Just retrofit some songs into the plot of your movie and you're golden!
    ==================================

    ==================================
    This is the first slasher film or so they say, yet the murderous deed is mostly off-screen, sometimes over a telephone. I like that we don't have to see the knife go in. For me it's more impactful.

    I'll re-watch this, it's worth many re-watches. Olivia Hussey is great and I love the brown 70s vibe. Although it's mostly women being killed it doesn't come across as punishment as in many slashers from just a tad later.

    Looney Tunes x Tati x fun Godard + Demy's parrot + je ne sais quoi = Zanzie dans le Metro. It's completely bonkers and unrelenting. Surely it's the pinnacle of whatever the hell it is.

    Pauline Kael said it was a big hit in France and a miss in the US. It's 'almost demonic in its inventiveness' and one critic said 'there's something not quite innocent or healthy' about it. There's definitely a disconcerting, unwholesome undercurrent and I can't decide…
