    The Mephisto Waltz


    I've been curious to see this movie since it came out and got terrible reviews. Don't remember why exactly, maybe because my mom had read the book or maybe I thought it would be hotsy-totsy or something. Anyway it's pretty crummy. Inasmuch as one can even hang an aesthetic on Paul Wendkos, the prevailing atmosphere here belongs more to producer Quinn Martin. Even the "what must it be like to have Barbara Parkins AND Jacqueline Bisset competing for your mojo?" aspect of the scenario falls pretty flat.

    So relentlessly full of shit it's relatively hilarious. Interesting idea to cast Kristen Scott Thomas as Courtney Love though.

    Best Villeneuve film I've seen, which isn't saying much. At least two "crackerjack" suspense sequences, and a lot of tech jubilation with Deakins kicking out the jams with the digital technology. But it's the drug-cartel movie equivalent of a zombie movie in which none of the non-zombie characters has ever seen a zombie movie. "Whoa, the war on drugs is an inescapable labyrinth of betrayal, corruption, and unspeakable violence? WHO KNEW?"
