    The American Friend

    ★★★★

    Germany in the 70s on film, like New York City, holds a certain decrepit charm for me. Although its economy was booming there is still a grayish, dull hue. The skies seem always overcast, the ground slick with mist and rain and there's the sense of a very long post-war hangover. You'll occasionally see a very old medieval or Gothic building next to an empty lot where rubble has been removed next to brutalist architecture. Wim Wenders captures the port…

    Night of the Demon

    ★★★★

    In ancient times,
    Hundreds of years before the dawn of history
    Lived a strange race of people...the Druids

    No one knows who they were, or, what they was doin'
    But their legacy remains
    Hewn...into the living rock,
    of Stone'enge!

    Having just got back from a trip to Maine, Stephen King's Graveyard Shift hit the spot, watched from a VHS bought from a great Portland record store- Strange Maine. One of the few King adaptations set AND filmed in Maine, it has a lot of integrity for a dumb, schlocky movie about killer rats. It's also filmed in real textile mills, one shuttered and one that was working at the time. It's great on atmosphere and local flavor, has Brad…

    Silver Bullet

    ★★★

    Oh, to have an uncle like Uncle Red (Gary Busey). He'll get you fireworks when the Fourth of July is cancelled due to werewolf murders. He'll soup up your electric wheelchair with a souped-up internal combustion engine that does over 50 mph. And he'll stay up with you and your sister to trap the werewolf so as to shoot it....with the silver bullet he helped you forge. Hee-haw, hee-haw, hee-hawlways is doing stuff like that. Not a bad King adaptation…
