    Obsession

    ★★★★½

    One of my absolute favorites. One of the earliest “old” films that I saw right after college thanks to the Attaboy Clarence podcast, which always has a wealth of deep dives from the 30s to 50s.

    It has one leap of logic that I don’t love but the energy of the film that makes it work so well is not really the cat and mouse element with Scotland Yard, but instead just the conversations between Robert Newton and Phil Brown…

    Okay listen listen listen there’s only two movies that I’ve watched at least five times within the past year and it’s this one and Paddington 2 and idk what that says about me but the numbers will probably rise for both of those films

    my dog kept farting during this and that was pretty visceral.

  • Dirty Ho

    Dirty Ho

    ★★★½

    Features the most polite form of kung fu ever put on screen. The “bodyguard” fight introduces a weird two persons in tandem fighting as one and then the choreography just keeps ramping up throughout the rest of the movie with its complexities. It’s impossible to describe some of these fights. You just have to see them.
