    Possessed

    In "Possessed" we open with a frazzled Joan Crawford wandering the streets of Los Angeles. Looking for someone named "David" she falls into a catatonic state in a restaurant and is taken away to the hospital. From here the movie is told in flashback as Joan tells a doctor the sordid circumstances that caused her to lose her mind.

Cant tell if the soundtrack is "experimental" or they just had recording problems.

    This played on TCM for some reason. Didn't make it to the end.

    Carpenter has always been in his own league when it comes to the look and feel of his movies and…

    Body of Evidence

    Infamously bad erotic thriller is more notable at this point for its amazing imdb trivia page than anything that happens in it.
    Examples:

    -Madonna's acting coach quit just before production began, claiming that "she thinks she knows everything". (Believable and hilarious)

    -Madonna had five personal assistants for this film, including her own hairstylist, make-up artist and personal trainer. (Easily believable as well)

    -Two of Madonna's more infamous scenes (one involving dripping candles, the other requiring her to masturbate) were improvised.…
