    The Lost City

    ★★

    I guess that someone decided very intentionally to riff on Romancing the Stone instead of The African Queen could be deconstructed as further proof the end is near but this far too inconsequential for even that. Current Hollywood filmmaking i setup in such way the meta-aspects of this are pretty much insufferable and it lack much in filmmaking chops to make any of the set pieces linger. The stars re likable, but there's so much their bickering can cover.

    This is fascinating in that it is a typical Eyes Without a Face riff only it feels very self-conscious filtered through Jesus Franco's work. The l'amour fou obsessive decadence atmosphere is very high and there’s lots of nasty detail to go with the usual euro gothic surfaces.
